Eridok's Expedition Provisions

by Denis Tetreault
 Version 1.0

Eridok's location mapWhen looking for adventuring gear in Greyhawk, a visit to Eridok's Expedition Provisions is as close as it comes to one-stop shopping. Eridok's prices are a bit higher (20%) than those of specialty shops, but the quality is always good and the selection unmatched. Much of his stock is purchased from other carefully selected craftsmen and resold, and virtually anything that an adventurer, explorer, or merchant caravaneer requires can be found in his shop. The attached building contains a smithy with enough skilled workers to repair or fabricate everything from custom armor and weapons to iron wagon wheels and battalion-sized cooking pots. The cheerful owner, a retired adventurer, has the resources to outfit an entire caravan if the need arises (and the profit is adequate). He could also outfit fairly sizable military forces, and has taken commissions from local authorities, as well as foreign governments. He is, however, very careful about who he does large-contract military-type business with, only doing business with end-user legal and benevolant organizations and governments.

Eridok owns a large warehose in the Warf Quarter (W9) where he keeps most of his heavy traffic and bulky items. Transactions are not conducted at the warehouse, however. All sales must be finalized at the main shop. He also is part owner in a trading ship, a caravel, that travels fairly frequently between Verbobonc, Dyvers, Greyhawk and Hardby, and sometimes makes trips as far as Irongate and ports in Keoland.

DM's Notes: Eridok Golbedor (NG human male, Ftr12) has seen a lot of action in his previous occupation as an adventurer, and is nearly legendary among members of the City Watch and those who frequent the Mercenaries' Guildhall. He has contacts that reach all through the Watch and the Guild, right up to the top. A word from Eridok would open any door in those institutions, although he provides that sort of help only rarely as he believes that up-and-coming adventurers should pull themselves up by their own bootstraps.

Among the standard equipment Eridok sells, he does from time to time have specialty equipment. Mastercraft items are commonly available, as well as other particularly finely crafted items such as elven or dwarven-forged gear. Rarely magical items such as +1 weapons or armor can also be seen behind a special counter.

Eridok has a scar on his right cheek, is missing two fingers from his left hand, and walks with a very slight limp. He enjoys working, although his many years of adventuring made him extremely wealthy. If trouble arises in his shop, he can wield almost any weapon at hand without penalty, and his personal gear is never very far. Over the many years he has acquired a significant amount of personal magical equipment, however his most prized possession is a vorpal longsword he calls "Sunder".
