Proprietor of The Cats Eye Curiosity Shoppe

by Robert V. Droz

Vonroth is the owner\proprietor of The Cats Eye Curiosity Shoppe in Fellaren-Krae.  Vonroth is a human mage in his early thirties of around 5'7" and is very knowledgable, enough so be offer his services as a sage.


Vonroth's skin is pale white because he rarely goes outside. His eyes are a deep brown, and his light brown hair is thinning. His robes are simple and functional; he favors tan and brown colors. He is neither heavy-set nor gaunt, a middling weight. He could easily be mistaken for a priest or monk if met on the street.

He sometimes wears a pair of magic glasses that allow him to read modern written languages.


Vonroth is a soft-spoken, unassuming person. He is uncomfortable talking outside of his chosen field. He does have a natural charm, and would be popular if he chose to have a social life. His money goes into buying new minor magics and maintaining his store. All who know and deal with Vonroth hold him in reasonably high esteem. Causing trouble for him would get around to his wealthy patrons and customers, not to mention the adventurers he does business with. It is also quite probable he has the favor of the goddess Bast (Sharess) despite his unostentatious lifestyle.


Vonroth used to be an adventurer. He retired to pursue his dream of research, and used his share of adventuring spoils to open this shop. Whenever members of his old adventuring band are in town, they visit him. Not long after he opened the store, he bought the old Bast idol that stands watch over his door. He knows it has magic properties, but never has had the time to identify them. Mr. Cat wandered in not long after he set up the Bast statue, and has been his closest companion since then. Vonroth does talk aloud to Mr. Cat, asking his opinions on things. Mr. Cat will meow in reponse at times. Vonroth has no desire at all to return to adventuring life, and is quite content to allow the world’s curiosities to come to him.

Vonroth almost always has an Identify spell memorized. The rest of his spell selection tends to be utilitarian in nature. Vonroth will not use spells like Fireball or Melf's Acid Arrow due to their potential to destroy interesting objects.
