Lord Mayor of Coronus
NPC of Dark Enterprise
Augustus Varien is a Human Merchant-Lord of Coronus and currently the leader of that city. Previously the owner of several mines and a significant amount of land, Varien sold nearly all of it to consolidate the business of armed escorts in Coronus As such, he installed himself Mayor of the city, and saw his profits and power rise significantly, though he hasn’t fully recouped all that he has spent yet. He still owns one mine (the Crystalpike Mine) and a shipbuilding concern in the city.
As ruler of the city-state, Varien has gone out of his way to purchase the loyalty of adventurers so that he can compete with his fellow heads of state in the event the stability of The Northern Kingdoms should come to an end.
