Founding Member of Clan Jambs Full Name: Asphelia Gallonica Bywater Alias: Asphelia Gallonica the Ankle Biter, Astrea Greensward Birthdate: 1 Desnus 4679 Description: A 2'11", 37 lbs halfing female with waist length hair and sage green eyes. Her hair is light brown with lots of golden highlights, so she looks almost blond in the sunlight. As Astrea the human child, she wears her hair in pony tails on either side of her head, held in place with bellflower shaped hair ties. She wears a knee length dress with frilly bloomers that peak out underneath. The dress is shades of green and is very girly. She often stands in a pose of wide-eyed innocence and has a tiny stuffed white tiger she carries around with her. As Asphelia the halfling druid, she favors shirts and skirts tailored to fit her curves, often with long sweaters or vests over the top. Her favorite colors are greens and golds, with some blue for variety. Her hair is pulled back in elaborate braided updo's and she often wears a small pair of pince nez. She also favors shoes with a bit of a heel, allowing her to top 3' in height. Background: v Asphelia was born in Kerse, Druma, while her parents were escorting a caravan of escaped slaves from Cheliax to the River Kingdoms. She was born early, taking her mother by surprise. Her parents finished the trip with the caravan and then set up house near Mirabella’s parents in Brevoy. Whenever the Network called on her parents, they left, leaving baby Asphelia with her grandparents Mephis and Celandine. Upon reaching her teens, her parents would let Asphelia accompany them on some of the trips through southern Avistan. She provided cover on their mission and they wanted to familiarize her with the paths throughout the continent. She joined the Bellflower Network on her 20th birthday, eager to actively participate in the organization she watched her parent’s dedicate their lives to. Her first assignment was in Westcrown, Cheliax. She was to assist slaves in leaving their masters and starting on the road to freedom. The Bellflower network got frusterated with Astrea, however, as she would only help slaves that were in their position through no fault or action of their own. Asphelia had sucessfully assisted several groups of slaves in escaping their master's and fleeing Westcrown. She was working on another assignment at the home of Count Alenzi when she beheld a baby white tiger in a cage. The Count had several wild animals in his menagerie, including a deinonychus, a snowy owl, and an eagle. Every time Astrea visited the Count's children, she would visit the white tiger. They struck up an affinity during her visits, until she finally had to help the tiger escape. On the night the Count's slaves escaped, so did his tiger. Fearing her cover was compromised, the Bellflower Network sent an agent named Branna to assist in Astrea's disappearance from Westcrown. The pair headed across Avistan to the Stolen Lands, near to where Asphelia grew up. The Sword Lords of Restov heard of the pairs arrival and invited them to a party one evening. The rest is history...

Simple farmers in a proud rural area in Taldor, Akiros’s parents wanted nothing more for him than lifeas a protector of the town—as a paladin of Erastil, no less. Every moment of Akiros’s life was spent in preparation for his acceptance into the order, yet not one month after he achieved his parents’ dream and became a paladin, Akiros fell in love with the married daughter of one of his hometown’s wealthier merchants, a woman named Rosilla. The affair ended all too soon when Rosilla’s husband found out what she’d been up to and threatened to divorce her. The thought of losing the life of luxury was too much, and she told her husband that Akiros had raped her. Furious, he took Rosilla to the temple of Erastil to confront her attacker. The young paladin was flabbergasted, but when Rosilla took things too far by spitting on him and publicly denouncing him as a rapist, a heretofore unknown rage woke in Akiros’s heart. All of his repressed frustrations and anger poured out in one powerful blow, and with that blow he snuffed out Rosilla’s life. As she crumpled to the floor, Akiros knew his life had been snuffed out as well. He turned on Rosilla’s dumbfounded husband and killed him as well, and with the temple guards still in shock, he fled the city. He barely made it out of Taldor, stowing away on a merchant ship bound for Mendev. Akiros switched ships dozens of times as he fled north, losing himself in the River Kingdoms, living as a bandit, a vagabond, and a criminal, and growing to enjoy his newfound rages. Erastil let him see Branna as somone who could stand up to the stag lord. Freeing her from his captivity he stayed behind to aid her when she returned to confront him again. When CJ returned to rid the lands of the Stag Lord Akiros fought with CJ VS the Stag Lord. Fully expecting to be executed CJ bolsterd his hope and he has been working for them ever since. He sits on the council as the Warden.
The natural werewolf that infected Branna. The local wolf population look to Blackmane and Branna as the Alphas. He does not frequent any paticular settlement but is normaly at Branna's side when she is in a town. His past is murky. It is likely that he came to the Green Marches from Andoran as he has a pronounced Andoran accent. From that is a small jump to assume that he is from somewhere in the Darkmoon Vale area. When he met Branna he had a very crewl streak (CE) but this has tempered over the years (CN). He has been working to create a village deep in the Green Marches Preserve for the werewolf population of the Narlmarches. He sits the council as Spymaster but is also the deputy Marshal for Branna.

The Narlmarches, also known as the Narlmarch Woods, bifurcate the Stolen Lands. The Narlmarches spreads across the lowlands of the region and feature craggy hills, lazy streams, deep ravines, and a great variety of trees, including oak, beech, and rushleaf. The region hosts a rich variety of wildlife as well, with elk, rivercats (a cousin to the bobcat, with a strange sort of mossy-fur), black bears, many large rodents, boars, and brush thyclacines. Stranger still are the giant owls, will-o'-wisps, owlbears, and aggressive vegetation. While the Narlmarches lie within the Kingdome of Green Marches they fey that live in the wood hold their own court. Clan Jambs respect the hold the fey have over the forest and frequetly give them gifts of sweets, mead and song. Because of this the fey rarely disturb travlers in the forest and any pranks played are non threatening.
Lake Silverstep, so named for the legend that its waters filled the footprint of a great silver wyrm many ages ago, is the cleanest and clearest source of water in the Stolen Lands. Its primary source is from the Gurdin River, but countless smaller rills and streams empty from the mountains in dramatic cascades along the lake’s eastern shores. The shores surrounding the lake consist of idyllic swaths of nettles, cattails, reeds, and lilies and are home to numerous nixies, grigs, and faerie dragons. These fey are incredibly bashful and shy. The waters of Lake Silverstep host an enormous variety of fish; the most common are small, thick-bodied silver eels—quite delicious and much sought after by gourmet chefs. The fact that dangerous predators often hunt along the shores of the lake, combined with the fact that silver eels are difficult to catch due to their uncanny ability to sense hooks in bait, together ensure that demand for the eels remains high.
A Bloodwedd that spoke with CJ after they fought the Soul Eater at the shores of Lake Silverstep
The Nomens are a matriarchal society led by a warpriestess, a centaur dedicated to the worship of Desna in an aspect they call “Mother Moon.” The great majority of the Nomens are females, who comprise their principal warrior class. Though males are allowed among their number, they represent a much smaller portion. Males are instead encouraged to take up the bow as hunters, a much safer profession, in order to prevent their potential loss in battle—the loss of enough males would spell the doom of the entire tribe as it could no longer reproduce in viable numbers. Although they speak Common, they do so relatively poorly and prefer to speak in Sylvan or an archic form of Elvish.There are 200+ adult centaurs in their prime, 100+ children (too young to fight) 25+ elderly (Many run the blood furrows when they get too old to keep up with the tribe.) There is an 80% Female (160+) 20% Male (40+) ratio. Men are hunters and maintain the camp. They can marry but more often just have open relationships and extended families. This has been the “way” for hundreds of years. They live in yurt like tents and move camp every few weeks depending on the signs from mother moon. They do not grow food, they are hunter gathers. Very little of their food is cooked and meats are most often smoked.
