The Demon Prince
This is the home of the self-styled “lord” Armos Kamroth, a wealthy landowner who collects rents from scores of farmers and herders living in the countryside nearby. Armos is a brusque, balding man of about fifty who makes a show of loaning money in good faith and exacting only what the law allows- but somehow he has quietly bought up dozens of free farms over the years and turned their owners into his tenants.
Armos is a miser of the worst kind and is secretly a devotee of Orcus. He leads a small death cult who secretly meet in hidden vaults under his comfortable estate. Any news of treasure discovered by itinerant heroes inflames his avarice and leads him to begin scheming for ways to part the adventurers from their wealth.
