Dan Chalmers, Former Pirate

Dan has loved the sea for as long as he can remember, so at 17 years of age, he signed on as a deck hand on a merchant ship. Dan's judgement wasn't the best, though, and this ship turned out to be a pirate, marauding the sea lanes, smuggling arms and contraband, and assorted mayhem. Being very honest, Dan hated the work, and after a year, finally escaped from them and lost himself in the capital city. Dan, fearing to return to the wharf, hired himself out inland as a mercenary. Now, two years later, he feels confident enough to return to the port capital.

While adventuring, he acquired a hireling, Ardal, who has since joined the group as one of Dan's followers. Ardal is a ST 18 warrior.

Notes

Dan was played for about 18 months real time. All of his enchanted equipment was acquired in play or purchased.
