West Athens Marches
Baron Ser Harran
Ser Harran Nicolai, Baron Westmarch, received his title after the death of his father in NR 104. Harran has proven a capable steward and ruler and Westmarch has remained fairly prosperous, if a bit dull, during his tenure. He is keenly aware of the dangers posed by the Wilds and has always made the security of Sunhaven a priority.
The Baron has a bit of a love-hate relationship with the adventuring community. On the one hand, the possibility that some careless would-be heros will stir up a situation out in the Wild that is beyond their means to handle is a concern; Harran doesn’t need an army of goblins or trolls – or something worse – marching towards his crofters and villeins. At the same time, he well remembers the atmosphere in Sunhaven 20 years or so ago, and has seen first hand the benefits of the way most of the adventuring ilk like to spread their wealth around on his Barony. In the final assessment, his is cautiously welcoming of adventurers and their behavior, but he keeps a strong watch on the Last Bridge just the same.
