A Shadow Over Ashenport
Orest Naerumar is a tiefling merchant who displays impeccable manners and discretion. Orest corresponds with relatives and colleagues in several towns and cities outside the Nentir Vale; given a few weeks, he can order in low-level magic items or other items of unusual value.
Similarly, Orest purchases interesting items such as these, since other dealers in distant towns or cities might be looking for them.
Orest doesn’t ask questions about where characters in his store found the goods they’re selling to him, but he is not a fence—if he knows that something was obtained illegally, he declines to purchase it.
Orest normally arranges for halflings of the Swiftwater clan to transport special orders— jewelry, gems, or magic items of value. However, he sometimes makes other arrangements for items that seem especially valuable or dangerous.
