Romir: Greetings, traveller. I'm a magical trader and trainer for sorcerer spells. How may I help you?
Romir: Of course, just browse through my wares. Or do you want to look only at potions, wands or runes?
Romir: I can teach you rune spells and instant spells. What kind of spell do you wish to learn? You can also tell me for which level you would like to learn a spell, if you prefer that.
Romir: I am known as Romir.
Romir: I guess one could call me a hermit. I am a bit new to this hermit business though and I have to admit I enjoy some company now and then. I also earn some money by teaching spells to those in search of knowledge.
Player: jarl or leader
Romir: The title of the jarl is currently held by Sven the Younger. He is the spokesperson of his people in times of peace and a kind of chieftain in times of war.
Romir: Not even the king's arm reaches this remote place.
Romir: I doubt the queen even knows that this place exists.
Romir: Thais is a good example why people should become hermits.
Romir: Carlin is probably more tolerable than Thais but I am no friend of cities in general.
Romir: Venore is so absorbed in mundane wealth that it is only a matter of time before it devours itself.
Player: Edron or Port Hope
Romir: Such far away places are of little importance here.
Romir: I prefer loneliness over the busy hassle in a city. I guess that's why they call us hermits after all.
Romir: My spells keep most monsters at bay. Not that many would come close to Svargrond anyway.
Romir: I am not interesting enough for possible enemies.
Romir: The elves have no business at all over here.
Romir: Dwarfs are quite settled. Even if the mines were recaptured, I doubt that we would see more than a handful of dwarfs here.
Romir: I would not be too surprised if that ancient race were found in some deep cave, even here in the North.
Romir: The most yetis have been seen further south. Of course only because they are much more easily overlooked in the rugged mountains and huge snow plains here.
Romir: The chakoyas are of a malicious intelligence which is quite similar to humans'. Only the fact that they still rely on instinctive behaviour patterns keeps them somewhat at bay.
Player: ice witch
Romir: That woman is a powerful spell caster. She rules with an iron hand. Her tactics are intimidation and agitation. It's only a question of time that she is going to wage a rigorous attack on Svargrond, driven by her greed.
Player: year of the serpents
Romir: Ah yes. An odd occurrence. I am quite convinced some strong magic was involved but I have no idea how or why.
Romir: If I cared about news, I hadn't chosen this remote spot to settle down.
Romir: The eyes of the gods certainly rest even on this icy place.
Romir: Uman stands for a quite specified kind of magic. Not everyone will feel comfortable with it.
Romir: The forbidden knowledge Zathroth has to offer can surely be tempting.
Romir: Banor is revered by many knights.
Player: how are you
Romir: I am fine, thank you.
Romir: The druids have more in common with the shamans
Romir: One has to admit the power he accumulated is awesome and he even left mortality behind.
Romir: There is no legend that connects excalibug with the north. I suggest to continue your search somewhere else.
Romir: The barbarians are a bit rough, but most of them are honest and trustworthy people.
Romir: There something sinister going on and I am quite sure this cult you just mentioned is somehow connected to it.
Romir: All this hassle about these mines seems so stupid. As if this had been the only place with ore in the world.
Romir: That's the place where the shamans meet. It's some kind of spiritual centre of the shaman community.
Romir: The local shamans are as powerful as some of the druids of Carlin, perhaps even more powerful. Their magic is strangely related to each other and their main difference is their philosophy.
Romir: The raiders are lead by a ruthless witch. That makes them even more dangerous.
Romir: South of here, the raiders have at least three more or less steady camps.
Player: join or barbarian test
Romir: There is some kind of test you can take to become an honourary barbarian. Talk to Sven the Younger about that issue.
Romir: The barbarians see the icy north wind as an own entity. I think they might be right about that.
