Hommlet: Orms Leather & Shoes

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.

6. Orms Leather & Shoes
Azrael Orm is a Leatherworker and shoemaker in fact he can make most things from leather given enough time including custom boots, harnesses and armour. He lives and works here with his wife Serena, their three children: Carter, Sia, Tanya, and his wife's brother Nogusta. Azreal and his wife are members of the miltia as is their son Carter. Nogusta, through some birth accident at birth is a child trapped in a mans body. Husband and wife treat him as another one of their children.

Adventure Hook 
The Hag Coven Caverns-Map by Dyson Logos
Sometime in the near future the Orm's family will suffer a tragedy. When they wake up one morning they discover that baby Sia is missing. The crib is covered with so much blood that it's hard to believe the child could still be alive. Nogusta is also missing and eventually is found trying to hide in a nearby ruins in the Kron Hills. The truth of the matter is that a coven of Hags stole the baby with the plan of raising as their own all the while aiding in its transformation into another hag. The blood in the crib was that of a piglet transmuted to look like the child and then left with the mentally deficient Nogusta to take the blame.
