Return to the Keep on the Borderlands
Rouse the halfling
Rouse maintains all the locks throughout the Keep as well as the gate and portcullis mechanisms; he also oils some defensive equipment for the Keep. His specialty is to open locked boxes, coffers and the like brought to him by adventurers.
As a second “parallel” trade, Rouse also is a pawnbroker, an activity much more profitable than the first one. Rouse’s customers may find odds and ends of useful adventuring gear, items that have become his property from non-paid loans.
Many believe that he is a skilled retired adventurer.
