Master Divram Woodbristle
Master of Woodbristle Manor
Master Divram Woodbristle, is the leader of an extended family of halflings who operate the large farmlands of Woodbristle Manor. The clan is famous for their mushrooms and wide variety of other produce, but is also well-known for being constantly harassed by goblins out of the Pit of Chains. They have developed their defenses to a fine art, and have built thorny palisades of Goblin Brambles all about their lands, and employ a large kennel of the largest, meanest war hounds in the forest. Their farmers always go about armed, and in small bands to and from their fields, and are often easily spotted in Thornkeep for being small well-armed militia bands wherever they might travel. Pick on one Woodbristle, you will need to deal with all of them.
Resourceful and tenacious, the halflings of the Woodbristle clan are closely-knit and deal almost exclusively with Mistress Nessa Greenfoot as their provisioner of choice, because she offers the best prices. They have few other ties with the community at large, though the name “Woodbristle” attached to any of their produce guarantees a sale.
