The Western Borderlands
Gnomish Alchemist and Herbfiend
As a youth, Tappen realized he didn’t like being around people. So he moved out of the big city. And then moved out of the somewhat big city. And then moved out of the small city. And this continued until he found himself living in the wilds just beyond the edge of civilization.
Tappen is a talented alchemist, with a focus on herbs and nature lore. He has some familiarity with poisons, but is hesitant to divulge much information to those he doesn’t trust.
He has a small cottage in Blackwood Forest, but is rarely found there – preferring to roam the entirety of the woods.
