The Empty Waste
The Hermit is a reclusive individual who is thought by most to be more myth than fact. He is always found alone, and those who have actually seen him describe him as an old Half-Orc who worships the ancient gods of the desert. Rumor has said that the years spent in the desert alone have addled his brain, making him a confusing individual to deal with.
The party encountered the Hermit in the desert when he was attacked by four individuals. After a lengthy debate, the party agreed to help the old man, despite a serious curse/disease that plagued the group.
