Headmaster William Narwark
Headmaster William Narwark is an old man, a WIZ 9 who finished his adventuring days many years ago. His stories about the troves of treasure, monstrous guardians, beautiful stonework and long forgotten kingdoms, beautiful elven women and even glimpses of powerful dragons through much of Old Alleria are more than enough to drive the imagination of the students. He loves adventuring for the thrill of it, and because of this he disagrees with the Stalwart League’s methods and intentions. He takes their money and doles out their charters to hire teachers and purchase equipment and allow new adventurers passage into the greater world of Alleria, but he is often reticent about handing over information to them regarding intelligence. He is widely considered the best and most famous of the professional adventurers of the age, and he uses this fame to constantly thwart the Leagues desires to wipe out monsters and rebuild over the ancient world. Narwark teaches diplomacy first, a tactic which many consider to be silly and ridiculous in light of the ancient wars with goblins, orcs, trolls, and giants that now fill the unexplored world. He encourages his students to join exploring free companies or to start their own rather than join the Stalwart League.
