See Magnate.

Nazareth W. Bell

Common huckster and starmaker, the agent of Signet the Significant. He organized the Signet '04 tour, where Signet met some of the adventurers who would form the New Significants, the group of which Naz is a member. He has some ability to charm people into agreeing with him.
--Who's Who V1



Undead realm beneath Annwych, recently opened by the mad priestess Corinna and eventually resealed by Rhynwa and Luthien.
--Who's Who V2


A Nylevian town. (Click here for a map.)
--from the Reference Almanac of Ataniel, 813

The city that I saved, all those years ago, as one of my first heroic deeds. To be honest, I'm still not quite sure how I managed it. Still, when I arrived, they were cheering for their Savior, their half-elven thief of glory. It took me a second to realize that I, in fact, was a half-elven thief. Look at my pointed ears. Look, I'll steal something.

I am, in fact, the one and only true Savior of Neporris. I was the one who killed the Vampire who held the whole city in its thrall. Kynvelyn stole the credit, of course, like he steals everything, but I truly deserve it.
--Metropolitan Fleegle

New Gila

The largest of the Dark Islands off the western coast of the Doomlands, now inhabited by immigrants from the world of Gila. (Click here for a map.)
--from the Reference Almanac of Ataniel, 813

All I know is that the Brotherhood of Gila have moved into the Doomlands. Their nation they call New Gila. Personally, I don't trust them. Why? I'd rather not comment on that.

New Lianth

The Nylevian city of Lianth under the new guidance of the Objectivist philosopher Randall Thrayn.
--Who's Who V2

New Mithril Dagger Heroes

The Heroes of the second Shadowwars, including Maxwell Silverhammer, Khyrisse of Trade, Signet the Significant, Luthien Mageson, Praxis, Quell Raimonde, Shilree, Tila, Zzenith, Nora Ino, Eren Ragnarokkr Messala, Waterloo, and Siobhan MacLir.
--Who's Who V2

New Trade

Small city founded by Khyrisse Starshadow in the Northlands, by the Fairys Pass. (Click here for a map.)
--from the Reference Almanac of Ataniel, 813

Nikita Raimonde, Princess

Princess Nikita, the second daughter of the former Dalencian emperor, is primarily famous for her possession of the Ass of Power. She is also married to Sir Tomas, the coolest knight in Dalencia.
--Who's Who V2

Now that's one powerful ass.


Tilas old apprentice and one of the few members of her guild to survive the Madness. Tila brought the young thief with her to Javin, and she is currently serving as her ambassador to New Trade.
--Who's Who V2

Deceased Norn

A member of the Ravagers, upon the defeat of Malcar, she surrendered and in return for her freedom, swore a non-violence pact with the Sewer Tour.
--Who's Who V1

Norna is a piece of work, let me tell you. She rejoined our numbers when fucking Ragnarok turned everything upside down--not that she RIDES with us, or does anything ELSE she's supposed to, no, she wanders around the fucking sphere pursuing her own goals with the Valkyrie powers now. We're sworn not to kill each other, of course, but the next time I see her I am going to kick her ASS.
--Sigrid of the Valkyrie

Don't you wish all villains would buy you dinner and pay your hotel tab, though?
--Ebreth Tor

Variously known as Norna of the Skeins or the Fallen Valkyrie, Norna was a Valkyrie who broke ranks with her sisters under unknown circumstances and joined a mercenary group called the Ravagers. Defeated by the Sewer Tour on one occasion, she swore an oath not to harm any of them again, which she honorably upheld. Absent from the Valkyrie at the time of Ragnarok, Norna lost much of her sanity, but still managed, with the help of some time-travelers and an inordinately patient Flicker and Luthien, to avert the destruction of the Valkyrie. She then, in classic Wagnerian fashion, died.
--Who's Who V2

Did we really play her this bitchy before?

Sacrificed herself to whack a lich lord.
--Hillary Sturoster, filing clerk of Annwyn.

Northern Diaria

Anjra's idiosyncratic way of referring to the evil Shadowlands, which had been Diarian land until they were destroyed in the Shadowwars.
--Who's Who V2

Northlands, the

A misnomer, for this partially settled wilderness lies in the center of the continent. At one time, though, this was as far north as Nylevians could voyage, due to the Wall erected by Lord Warp, and it has been known as the Northlands ever since. (Click here for a map.)
--from the Reference Almanac of Ataniel, 813

Northsea, the

The huge freshwater lake at the heart of the Northlands. (Click here for a map.)

Harry Novoa

The only honest cop in Rimbor City.
--Who's Who V2


A sleazy, hedonistic elf from Liratyn in the employ of John Tucson. Nox is apparently rather attracted to Vas, to the latters embarrassment.
--Who's Who V2

But I am NOT attracted to him. Ebreth did the world a favor by relieving him of one of his lecherous hands; if ever we meet again, I will be sure to finish the job myself.
--Vastarin, protesting a little too much? :-D


A charming werewolf detective with the LSRIA, he joined the Sewer Tour when they intersected in their missions against the Huntsman. Needing to recover the lycanthropic magic, he accompanied the party, aiding it against the Giants and Malcar. After returning, he was kidnapped by the Web to use against the Sewer Tour, but before he could be broken, the Tour rescued him. He helped them find the City on the Edge of Forever, and is now back working for the LSRIA.
--Who's Who V1

There's a wolf where? (Sorry ole buddy. Just had to say that one more time.) Noyarc is a cool guy, good hair and a slick operator. Plus, his name spelled backwards is "crayon". It doesn't get keener than that.

Deceased Nth, Prime Vizier

Prime Vizier of the Brotherhood of Gila, he was killed by the Sewer Tour during their rescue of Palmer Khan.
--Who's Who V1

Killed in combat.
--Hillary Sturoster, filing clerk of Annwyn.

Number Six


This large southern country is primarily a loosely feudal network of small to large towns, each presided over by an hereditary lord or elected mayor. Traditionally Nylevian towns have owed their allegiance to the Duke of Lianth; there is no one filling that position at present, though, and most Nylevian townships are cautiously proceeding on their own. The bravery of Nylevian mercenaries and heroes is famed across Ataniel. (Click here for a map.)
--from the Reference Almanac of Ataniel, 813

Four stars. Not the most exciting of travel destinations, but there's a lot to be done here, and few real drawbacks. The best bar on Ataniel, the Mithril Dagger Inn, is in Lianth.
--Threnody's travel guide

Nynia Paris

Marginally sane chaos-worshipping Paris cousin.
