Attitude toward the PC's: Helpful Owner and operator of Oleg’s Trading Post. A gruff, middle-aged man with a no-nonsense attitude.
Oleg and his wife Svetlana spent the past few months rebuilding an abandoned border fort on the edge of the Stolen Lands and turning it into a trading post.
While their customers were few and far between, consisting mostly of trappers, hunters, and an eccentric local hermit named Bokken, trade in furs, jerky, and the occasional magic potion from Bokken were enough to keep them in business.
Three months before the PCs arrived at the trading post with their new charter to explore the stolen lands, several bandits robbed Oleg and Svetlana, then returned every few months to collect their taxes.
Out of gratitude, Oleg and Svetlana have offered the PCs free food and boarding at the trading post in perpetuity.
Oleg is missing his ring finger from his left hand; this was courtesy of the bandit name “Kressle”.
Were it not for the fact that he feared
for his wife’s fate, he would have doubtless sacrificed his
life to the bandits in a foolish attempt to defend his stock
when they first paid a visit 3 months ago. The fact that he’s
been forced to turn over each month’s stock to the bandits
shames him, but he does his best to mask that shame with
a stubborn and gruff attitude. His wife Svetlana knows
how much the situation pains him, and knows that she’s
the reason that he hasn’t stood up to the bandits and how
that act of humility is crushing his soul. She’s pleaded
with him several times to abandon the post and return
to Restov, but Oleg has stubbornly refused to give in that
