The Road Less Travelled
Baron Sir Thornden Langden
Baron Langden is known to be a fair and honorable man who looks out for the needs of his people. Unfortunately he is also proud, stubborn, and prone to wrath, so much so that he disinherited and banished his only son over some sort of argument last year. he is a generally unpleasant man to those he views as below his station, and not easily impressed by those close to or equal to it. It may not be very fun to work for him, but you’ve gotta start somewhere
Post adventure update: it turns out that the Baron was being manipulated by a combination of blood magic and soulcaging. the party freed him of this but it failed to improve his attitude, and even seems to have made him more sour toward mages of any sort. being a man of honor however, he admitted in a rather terse letter that he owes his life and honor to the party and will do whatever is in his power to balance the scales should it be needed in the future.
