The Jade Legacy
The sole occupant of an ancient building at the end of Tower Street is a cantankerous old man named Brodert Quink, a balding expert on Varisian history and engineering. Brodert claims to have spent two decades of his youth studying with dwarves engineers at Janderhoff and three decades as a cataloger at the Great Library of Magnimar, and is continually baffled and enraged that his learning and obvious intelligence haven’t afforded him more prestige. Brodert has been studying ancient Thassilonian ruins for the past several years and has recently become obsessed with the Old Light. No one believes his theories that the tower was once a war machine capable of spewing fire to a range of more than a mile.
To supplement his income, and hopefully his name-recognition, Brodert has recently decided to compile a Travelers’ Guide to Sandpoint, with answers to commonly asked questions.
