Nights of Hot Queso
Lord Ernest Padraig
This descendent of the noble rulers of old Winterhaven is well respected in the town, though he lacks true title to it.
Ernest Padraig is the Lord of Winterhaven, descended from the noble family that ruled this area under edict of the old Nerath Empire. Folks around Winterhaven were happy with Lord Padraig’s father’s authority, and they have found answering to the rules of the new lord no more arduous. On the other hand, Padraid doesn’t have absolute power. For instance, he was unable to raise his own force from among the villagers to deal with the kobold problem that was recently taken care of by adventurers. Padraig does command the Winterhaven Regulars, a core group of ten soldiers who perform guard and police functions in and around the walled portion of the village.
From time to time he visits Wrafton’s Inn. All those present doff their hats and call him Lord, after which he usually retreats to a corner table and sips beer. He is amenable to speaking with strangers and adventurers.
