Scales of War
A dwarven alchemist from Overlook, Adronsius is never seen without his stained, scorched robes and a frown of concentration as he ponders his latest experiment. He’s happy to teach his arts (indeed, the difficulty is likely to be stopping him from teaching), sell his wares, and devote his arts to the defence or betterment of the town. The circumstances of him leaving his clan in Overlook are mysterious, but some sort of cloud hangs over them.
Adronsius is the person who learned to hatch Gryll from he egg, but had to find alternate accommodation for the dragonborn once fire breath plus alchemy started becoming a public safety concern…
He is currently employing Tam to perform odd jobs and assist with his experiments, in return for which the half-orc is learning some of the alchemical arts.
Adronsius was captured by the Red Hand but has been freed before they could put him to work making alchemical items for them. He was able to provide these directions to where Jalissa is held: “down the stairs, straight across the entry chamber, turning left in the room that smelled of goblin, then left again in the room with the crackling sound, around two right corners, then through a room that smelled of the dead, then up the stairs to a room with a sticky floor, right and up another set of stairs, then through a dusty room and left through a door. That good enough directions for ya?”
