NPC – Valdo Tisza
Lord Valdo Tisza
Vadlo Tisza (Male Traladaran)
Title: Lord of Karameikos, Minister of Finance
Source – GAZ1 p45
AC 960 – Born in Traladara Lands before Stefan Karameikos arrived.
AC 976 – Age 16 – Became assistant to Minister Zorgrev Yarol, and served as his right hand man.
AC 997 – Age 37 – Became minister of Finance, Karameikos. When the old Minister of Finance retired, Yarol recommended Valdo for the post on the strength of the man’s ministry experience, talent, and lack of ties to the powerful Traladaran merchant families which might cause a conflict of interest. Duke Stefan made the appointment, and now there are two Traladaran ministers in his cabinet.
AC 1000 – Age 40 (NM)
AC 1005 – Age 45
AC 1010 – Age 50
Valdo is a Traladaran commoner who for years was Minister Yarol’s right-hand man. Three years ago, when the old Minister of Finance retired, Yarol recommended Valdo for the post on the strength of the man’s ministry experience, talent, and lack of ties to the powerful Traladaran merchant families which might cause a conflict of interest. Duke Stefan made the appointment, and now there are two Traladaran ministers in his cabinet
Tisza shares Minister Yarol’s desires to strengthen the voice of Traladarans in Karameikan government. Unlike Yarol, though, he is prone to plot against the Duke. He does this by passing sensitive information about the government’s current activities to Traladaran families who can use the information to increase Traladaran power and influence. His his intent is good, but this is treason and will someday blow up in his face.
Tisza is about 40, built like a fighter (5′ 11″ and 180 lbs.), with black hair, mustache, and beard, brown eyes, and aristocratic features. He wears expensive robes of state.

DMing Notes: Tisza keeps records of taxation and manages the Duchy treasury. If the characters are hired by someone in government for an official duty, it is Tisza who will pay them. He could provide for a complex and interesting adventure if Minister Yarol hires the player-characters to find out who is leaking important secrets to Specularum families.
