Count Meinhard (3.5e NPC)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

A sarcastic, wisecracking, and joker vampire, Count Meinhard is one of the most feared and powerful men in the Lower Keecheedee Basin. He rules the basin by force and fear. His operations are centrally located at his keep, far removed from the towns and villages in the Lower Keecheedee Basin. A few locals, many in positions of power, report to him. They let Count Meinhard know the towns' and villages' plans. If their plans or methods of dealing with issues, such as fear or unrest, differ from how he planned to deal with them, then he uses force to resolve the situation. He normally has a few blood knights under servitude and vampire spawn under his command who resolve such situations, enslaving or killing all those involved. In certain situations he can order a militia to provide assistance or even, as he is no pushover, fight himself. He taxes the locals in the Lower Keecheedee Basin and if they instead pay in goods he raises their tax. Count Meinhard likes to taunt his foes with witty insults and remarks and he enjoys toying with foes he believes aren't a significant threat to him. He is a peerless and merciless warrior, and he usually rides to battle atop a heavy warhorse.
