Shadows In The Duskwood
Othic the Wood Wizard
Othic is a hedge-wizard who lives in the deep woods about a day-and-a-half northwest of the town of Riverside. A very tall (6’7”), dark-skinned man with a gentle demeanor and booming laugh, he wields an ash-white staff that has insets of emerald clusters and wears light robes of greens and blues along with leather-strapped sandals, even in the winter time. Othic has a well-known fondness for finely cut gems and an appreciation for well-crafted magical items, especially those which are beautiful as well as functional. He is also particularly predisposed to highly potent spirits and strong, dark stouts and lagers, but not wine. He brews and concocts a wide range of potions and salves which he will eagerly trade for the items mentioned above, as well as several signature liquors distilled from various fruits and berries.
