Grickhirt is a despicable man with vengeance on his agenda. Having fled for his life after his father’s assassination, Grickhirt fell in with brutes and quickly learned to dominate them. He has spent most of his life in isolation among his brute minions, recently making a play to acquire land on the eastern banks of the Damarind Flow. He has managed to take the town of Darkhold, renaming it Grickhirtown. Who knows if he will be pacified with one small and isolated town, or if the evil mage has his eye on Fallowdown as well.
Velen, an agent of The Red Cloaks bumbled a simple mugging and his men unfortunately slew Sir Rhyne of Sinclair, or at least that was the story he told regarding the incident. Luckily Sir Borace happened onto the scene of the murder, shortly followed by The Outcasts. The chase was extended but in a few weeks they managed to track down the bandit in his woodland hideout. He was captured and turned over to Count Pottersworth-Sinclair for trial and punishment.
