Rise of the Runelords
A grizzled old man from Korvosa
The Rune Wardens encountered Berwin in an old Varisian campground along the Lost Coast road. He told them he was traveling north from Magnimar to go stay with his niece in Galduria. Amelia noticed he was wearing a pair of battered Korvosan army boots, and Lea struck up a conversation with him about the old city.
Berwin warned that tensions were mounting between Magnimar and Korvosa, that there was talk of giants on the move in the wilderness, and that the mysterious “Star-Killer” was terrorizing Magnimar. He feared that something very bad was coming, likely a war, and wanted to steer clear of the major targets.
Berwin refused any help from the party and was gone the next morning.
