The Singing Mercenaries
Lord Warden of Fallcrest
The human noble Faren Markelhay is the Lord Warden (hereditary lord) of Fallcrest. He is in charge of the town’s justice, defense, and laws. The Lord Warden appoints a town council to look after routine commerce and public projects. Lord Markelhay is a balding, middle-aged human with a keen mind and a dry wit. He is a busy man and sees to lcoal matters personally, so adventureres calling on him are likely to wait a long time for a short interview. However, he is eager for news of other towns in the Vale (and farther lands as well) and never turns away someone who brings him news or waits to see him.
