Hommlet: Hoonan Farmhouse

The following is an entry in my series on Ultimate Greyhawk. Much like how comics and movies will reboot a franchise with a new take on an old concept, this is my personal re-imagining of the Greyhawk Campaign Setting beginning with the venerable town of Hommlet.

Key to the Village
The following locations are numbered based on how they appear on the map of the village of Hommlet as found in the module T1-4 The Temple of Elemental Evil.

2. Hoonan Farmhouse

Elmo Hoonan
This is the home of farmer and Captain of the town's militia Bodasen Hoonan. He lives here with his wife Ulmentha, two sons Elmo and Otis, and a servant named Pavek. The couple are devout worshipers of Saint Cuthbert and thus are pragmatic and hard workers. The same cannot be said of their tow sons. Elmo is a slow witted drunk with aspirations to join an adventuring party. This is not an act, he is actually as dumb as he seems and if recruited by an adventuring party will pose a serious liability. Otis on the other hand inherited the brains his brother sorely lacks. He is a con artist and a rogue. He divides his time between Hommlet and Nulb and frequently direct merchant caravans and adventurers into well planned ambushes by bandits from Nulb. Bodasen and his wife realize that both their sons are lost causes, yet familial loves prevents them from acting against them. In fact Bodasen will often use his clout as Captain of the militia to protect his sons from any sort of accusations levelled at them and going as far as hiding evidence of any wrong doings.
