History

Vital Information: Born 948; AC 970, assumes rulership of the Grand Duchy; AC 979, marries Lady Olivia Prothemian. Three children: Adriana (born 980), Justin (born 982), Valen (born 986)

Personality

The Duke shows more than faint emotion only to members of his family and his closest friends. His speech is gruff, his opinions candid and uncompromising. His judgements in trials are no gems of legal precedent but are fair and even-handed. Unfortunately, the Duke is baffled by raw evil – he doesn’t understand it or know how to deal with it. An example is his procrastination in the matter of his cousin Ludwig von Hendriks, who pillaged the Black Eagle Barony while the Duke stood aside, irrationally hoping that this was just a peculiar phase which would pass. In general, when trying to outmaneuver someone whose motivations stem from pure evil or madness, the Duke is at a disadvantage because his insights into their goals and motivations are faulty.

Appearance

Duke Stefan Karameikos III is of middle age. He is of average height but burly. His hair, beard, and mustache are a fiery red, flecked with gray; his eyes are sea-blue. Unlike many rulers with extensive military backgrounds, the Duke is perfectly at home in any manner of dress, and so he dresses suited to each occasion. In court, he’ll bedeck himself in costly robes and costumes; out hunting, he’ll wear simple riding gear; going to war, he’ll wear battered armor of fine construction.

GM Section

DMing Notes: In Basic-level adventures, the Duke will be a fabulous creature the characters have heard of but never met. In early Expert-level adventures, they may find themselves meeting him at court; they may be asked by his underlings to go on adventures which would help the Duke; they may stumble across plots which would harm the duke. By their later Expert adventures, the characters will have gained reputations for themselves and may have helped the Duke on numerous occasions; depending on circumstances, you may wish to have him grant them titles and land grants as they assume Name experience level. During their Companion adventures, the characters will be interacting at the highest levels of government in Karameikos and may be close friends or bitter enemies of the Duke.
