Dungeons and Dragons – Mystara
NPC – Abdullah ibn Hamid
Ambassador Sheik Abdullah ibn Hamid
Abdullah ibn Hamid (Male Alasiyan Fighter 13)
Title: Sheik of the Dythestenian Sultanate, Ambassador of Ylaruam to Karameikos
AC 1000 – Age:?? – (F11)
AC 1005 – (Ftr12)
AC 1010 – (Ftr13)
The Ambassador from the Emirate is a nomad warrior-sheik of the Dythestenian Sultanate, which borders Thyatis and Karameikos. Because of Abdallah’s heroism in battles with monsters from the southern mountains and because of his lyric speaking ability, the Emir of Ylaruam asked him to represent the Emirate in the court of Karameikos. The border between the Emirate and Karameikos is the Altan Tepes mountain range, and Karameikan efforts (launched from Castellan Keep) at driving nonhuman monsters out of those mountains have instead driven them into Abdallah’s homeland. Abdallah’s mission in Karameikos is to persuade the Karameikan’s to coordinate military offensives with the Emirate so that the peoples of the Emirate do not suffer.
Abdallah ibn Hamid is impressed only by a few things: Great honor, great fighting ability, and great beauty. Consequently, in Specularum, he sees himself as a desert wolf surrounded by sheep; he views most people with contempt, and appears to be a cold and arrogant man. However, he has respect for the Duke, an honorable man, and for fighters at Name level of experience. Abdallah despises the Ierendi ambassador, Gunther Schonberg, who previously served as a Thyatian mercenary fighting Alasiyan nomads. Only his duty to his Emir has kept him from challenging Schonberg to a fight to the death; should he be provoked, he might do so anyway.
Abdallah is tall (5’2″) and lean (165 pounds), the archetypal desert warrior. His skin is dark as the typical Alasiyan, his hair, mustache and beard are black, as are his eyes. He wears the flowing garments of an Alasiyan desert warrior, and always carries a bejewelled scimitar.

DMing Notes: Abdallah has a additional mission now: He has conceived a mad passion for the Glantri ambassador, Lady Marianita, and is courting her with all the good grace of a desert camel. Lady Marianita does not like the fervent and humorless man and is having none of it. She might hire characters to keep Abdallah from her door, or could take insult from the Ylaruam ambassador and ask a character to be her champion in a challenge duel with the man. Should you wish to run an adventure with bizarre international repercussions, you could have Abdallah drug Lady Marianita and try to steal her back to the Emirate to install her in his hareem; Duchess Olivia or Minister Yarol, wishing to diminish an international incident, would send a discrete party of adventurers to rescue her.
