Machinations of the Slave Lords!
Human Owner, Barthen's Provisions
A man in his early 50s, Barthen is an honest shopkeep who wears a furrowed brow of concern. His business has suffered since the town grew—or more accurately, since the gnomes came, and it shows on his face and sometimes gruff demeanor that he’s struggling under the strain of trying to remain solvent. He’s slowly finding a balance, particularly among people who make a special effort to shop at his business, not trusting the gnomish clans.
