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.
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.
8. Ilbren's Forge
Ilbren is the towns smithy. He can forge anything including weapons and armour. While it's not well known Ilbren is also a druid. He spends his free time away from the forge with the druid Jaroo (area 24) and by all accounts the two are the closest of friends. Secretly however Ilbren is a member of the evil druid organization known as the Twilight Circle. Long ago he was recruited to keep an eye on things in town and and in particular on Jaroo. Occasionally he can be seen having a drink at the Inn with Clovis Tel the Priest of Wastri (area 7). Once the new Twig Blight monsters begin wreaking havoc in the town (see area 1) Ilbren will try to cover up the origins of the outbreak and send the PC's on wild goose chases and stopped them anyway he can from tracing the threat back to the Moat House and the Twilight Circle and the Cult of Wastri.
