Guildmaster of local Guild of Adventurers
Gruff and reclusive, Gerald Bessyn monitors all local relic and artifact hunters for the crown. His office in Fallen Towers always has a sponsor or group changing a charter, registering a group, or providing a coat of arms. A complete bureaucrat, Gerald Bessyn follows the same procedure with everyone entering; each step must be completed before moving on to the next step, without exceptions.
Gerald has no obvious friends, and he doesn’t seek to change this. His only companion is a large panther named Quince. Everyone who enters his office will see Quince; the cat’s presence keeps most cordial, and those who decide on improper behavior become personally acquainted with Quince.
