Dungeons and Dragons – Mystara
NPC – Smallhammer, Draugin
Draugin Smallhammer (Male Elf, Fighter 11/Wizard 10)
Title – Craftmaster of the Erendyl Gemcutters
AC 1000 – E10 (Converts to Fighter 10/Wizard 10
AC 1010 – Fighter 11/Wizard 10
History: Draugin was a child prodigy some centuries back, and is still considered the finest hand with a gemstone in Alfheim. Some years back the other gemworkers in Alfheim (always a small and select fraternity) made him their craftmaster – the person they look to as the exemplar of their work.
Despite his mania for gems, Draugin has been active in the militia and in trade missions outside of Alfheim, and has a fair knowledge of the outside world. He has fought against a couple of the invasions of Alfheim, including the attempted Shadowelf invasion.
Personality: Aside from his fascination with gemstones, there is little to differentiate Draugin from other craftselves. He is normally merry and bright, but the appearance of a particularly intricate piece of jewelry or a strangely cut gemstone will catch his attention immediately; he will ignore the conventional niceties of conversation in his quest to learn all he can of who made the item and how they did it
Appearance: Draugin is a slim, fair, elf with no facial hair. He wears standard elven leathers, with the usual addition of an apron, which he frequently forgets to take off before leaving his workshop. Hanging in a loop in the apron is his namesake, a small dwarven hammer used for delicate jewel work
DMing Notes: Draugin is the elf to see for anything having to do with jewelry. As shown below, he has specialized in the lore of magical gems and jewelry and is likely to know anything needed about a gem-bedecked item of loot.

Design changes for Character
This clan refers to itself as the “royal clan,” because it is the family of Doriath, current king of Alfheim. About 300 years ago, a branch of the clan, the Erewan, moved to Glantri and now is one of the major powers there. A member of that clan, Sire Galladin, is the ambassador to Glantri from Alfheim, just as a member of the Glantri branch is Glantri’s ambassador to Alfheim.
There is much contact between this clan and outsiders from Darokin as well as Glantri. As King, Doriath has foresworn ties to the clan. Regardless, many Eyrendyl elves hold positions within the Alfheim government, such as it is.
Erendyl elves are some of the best craftsmen in Alfheim. Artists and artisans come from all over to study under the carvers of Elleromyr, the clan holding. The profits from Elleromyr carvings and other artwork has brought the clan much outside money, which they use to equip the Elleromyr Guard.
Converting Erendyl Elves in BECMI to 5th Edition – Elves split their advancement from a martial class and a spellcasting class for the first ten levels, then dedicate themselves to either the martial or the spellcasting class for the Letter advancement starting at C and going to M. Erednyl elves prefer Bard and Druid as their match.
