The unusually lanky dwarven owner and bartender of The Chipped Mug
Rand Stoutshield is a bit of an enigma for a Dwarf. Born and raised in Sharn, he had no interest in pursuing the path that his wealthy family followed, and used a loan from them to open The Chipped Mug. Concerned with fairness and equity, he gave his first two employees partial ownership of his tavern.
A friendly but quiet individual, he studied illusion magic in his youth, and occasionally entertains his patrons with his hobby.
He isn’t shy about admitting he wanted to be an adventurer but lacked the courage. To make up for it, he caters primarily to adventurers now, letting many of them carry a tab in exchange for their stories of adventure.
