Everyone's (least) favorite shopkeeper


Garwin is the proprietor of Garwin’s Curiosities in Sigurdsholm, who seems to know more than he should… about everything.


The party first encountered Garwin when Immeral sought out a bag of holding and was directed to Garwin’s Curiosities by Halde. Garwin sold the bag of holding and several other curios to the party. Garwin made remarks alluding to several of the party’s secret pasts, which irritated them, especially Amalie. Garwin also knew of the Shadow Order, and warned Immeral that they were looking for him.

When the party infiltrated Dunfair, they informed Garwin about the Intelligence Collective via sending. Garwin told them to purge the monsters from Dunfair and keep them away from Sigurdsholm.

The party returned to Garwin’s Curiosities after purging Dunfair. Immeral purchased a stealth-enhancing cloak, and Amalie asked if Garwin knew anything about the Intelligence Collective. Garwin refused to tell them specific details, but suggested they ask around the Enchantment Department at Seidhrskjold Wizards’ College.

Garwin sold Halde a wooden ball with a pocket of darkness inside. She attempted to deduce what its enchantment was, but could not come to any conclusions. Garwin revealed that the ball contained a glass sphere of ink, and Halde left the shop, frustrated.
