Magic Items and Enchantments Abilities

    Because of the fire that killed many of his people, Nipa refuses to call on the fire spirit Salamander. Gnome & Undine are his favorite spirits to call, and he enjoys having them. His favorite spell to call is Gnome’s teeth, which causes stone spikes to shoot up out of the ground that stand six feet tall.

    Nipa is a trader and he has an eye for nice things, though he does not have an ability to tell what is enchanted, but he usually has a good gut feeling that an items is enchanted or not.


    Despite Nipa’s warm and caring attitude, there are times he can be very cold and mean, especially when reminded of the past. He will at times blame the elves and dwarves for the deaths of many of his kin. The dwarves protected themselves in their caves and the elves in their forests when Lodoss was split. But the grassrunners were left out in the open and many died because of the war.

Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

Quotes: “Hey, that’s four-foot, two and A HALF inches!”, “My father always said...”, “Cha Za have mercy!”
