Planejammer: The Infinity Arc
Owner of The Green Dragon Inn
The tall, gruffly handsome man looks about a decade younger than his sixty-one years. He wears his thick black hair down to his shoulders, and he dresses fashionably but not ostentatiously. Ricard reveres Olidammara, the Laughing Rogue, and encourages the boisterous character of his inn, believing it to be the secret to its continuing financial success. Fistfights, broken-bottle battles, and even dagger duels don’t bother him unduly, though he might step in with a heavy club if a brawl gets out of hand. His regulars know when to stop.
A former adventuring swordsman, Ricard fought against that bastion of darkness known as the Temple of Elemental Evil. It fell in the infamous Battle of Emridy Meadows, where he lost the fourth finger on his left hand and received a distinctive triangular scar on the left side of his chin.
He also left with a firm understanding that the world was a fascinating place filled with hidden wonder, and set off for an adventurer’s life. Years later, in the Village of Hommlet, Ricard fell into service with Lord Robilar and became one of the accomplished fighter’s most trusted associates. Thirty-six years ago, when Robilar asked him to give up the adventuring life and run the Green Dragon Inn, Damaris jumped at the chance, eager for an easy retirement and fully cognizant of his luck in surviving even this long.About three years ago, Ricard’s wife and daughter abandoned Greyhawk for inherited ancestral lands outside the neighboring city of Dyvers. Ricard keeps in regular contact with the pair and speaks often of joining them, but for most weeks of the year he is effectively a bachelor. He visits his family twice a year, returning by way of the Western Road to Greyhawk.
