Rise of the Runelords
Town elder and mystic
Niska Mvashti gives new meaning to the term “elder.” Ancient even at Sandpoint‘s founding, Madame Mvashti is a Varisian historian and seer. Most of her readings are made with cards or carved bones, but in the Age of Lost Omens she shares the same sense of brooding and dread as many oracles, and rarely enjoys casting her predictions.
She lives in a large manor house which was built for her as part of the peace accord between the Sandpoint Mercantile League and local Varisians when the town was founded. It was agreed that the manor would revert to the town’s control upon Madame Mvashti’s death, but even decades later she is still a vibrant part of the Varisian community. Even in her old age, she still enjoys walks in the forest with regional druids who come to town regularly to lead her on her outings.
