Splendors of the South
The best-known antiquities dealer in Stormreach, Valexa Von Ruthvek is an expert on the city’s past and its surroundings. Her shop is like a museum, with a wide array of magic items and other curiosities. She sponsors occasional expeditions into the continent’s interior and has begun to receive funding from a group of anonymous benefactors, whom she only knows through intermediaries. The one condition put on the funds is that each expedition must go deeper into the wilds than the ones before it.
