A large ogre that works for the Ordinators by collecting "protection" money from the various merchants in the Seven-Pillared Hall. He is not allowed to collect from the Halfmoon Tavern for unkown reasons, so he vents his frustration by routinely intimidating Rendil and causing a ruckus. Brugg also accidentally knocked Travok into the underground river within the Seven-Pillared Hall.

Harwin (deceased)

Harwin was a trader staying in the Seven-Pillared Hall. He spoke to the heroes about them possibly guarding his caravan from the bugbears on the Vale Road. He was unaware that the heroes have already dealt with the problem, but they were not above making a quick buck off of him. Harwin turned out to be working with the Gimmerzhul Trading Post, and warned them of the heroes' arrival. The heroes later encountered Harwin alongside the Gimmerzhul Trading Post duergar, and he fled. Even after tracking him, his footsteps simply stopped, bewildering the heroes and Terrlen Darkseeker. The heroes later ran into him again after he was sent to ambush and defeat the heroes by Paldemar. The heroes won, however, and executed Harwin.

Orontur has asked the heroes to find him, and they have so far learned that Orontur has been dealing with the Blackfang Gnolls, a local tribe of gnolls that worship Yeenoghu. Paldemar was also responsible for paying Harwin to spy on the heroes, and later, to ambush them.


Part owner of the Halfmoon Tavern, he lives in the Seven-Pillared Hall. The heroes rescued him from the Bloodreavers, and Rendil let them stay at his inn for free.

The heroes noticed his very weathered face, and also noticed that he became quite ill during their expedition to the Chamber of Eyes. During the expedition to the Horned Hold, Terrlen became too ill to continue. The heroes are well aware that something is wrong with him. During the raid on the Horned Hold, The Judge had a strange dream, where he saw Terrlen stumbling around near them, in some sort of fit. He hasn't yet told the other heroes. Later, residents of the Seven-Pillared Hall reported that Terrlen is missing.
