Legend of the Crystals
Tall, thin but muscular dock worker
Ald’war was a dock worker in South Shore who struck it rich gambling and retired early. He has a major gambling problem and loves bets. He will gamble with just about anyone, but somehow ends up winning more than he loses. So much so very few people gamble with him any more. Not only is he strong and a decent fighter, but he can also build a ship that the PCs badly need. He will join and build the ship if the PCs manage to win 5000gp from him at a dice game of his own invention.
