Rise of the Warlock King
The dwarven blacksmith of Rannon's Hill.
He came to the area 30 years ago, possibly on the run from the law, and took odd jobs around town until finally convincing the previous blacksmith to take him as apprentice. He soon proved that he was already a capable blacksmith himself and for a decade Rannon’s Hill was a village with 2 blacksmiths! For the last 20 years Derrin has been the only blacksmith in town. Whatever his past was, he makes sure to never mention it. He has made a new life for himself in Rannon’s Hill. He was one of the first to treat Gost Blackjaw as anything except a wandering half-orc.
