Roleplaying tips

Tessaril enjoys working and she is quite proud of Eveningstarís peace and beauty, aswell as her friendships with Dunmanand other locals. The people have great respect and love for her, and she knows it. When not using her sharp mind and skills as an accompliced mage Tessaril enjoys using spells to help or entertain children. She is a skilled dancer and despite her status she is often go dancing as often as her duties allow the men of the town, many of whom are helplessly in love with her (and will fight to the death for her).Tessaril is fond of fried snake, venison, and the amber firewine of Aglarond, but is quite content with more ordinary fare: roast beef or pork, and beer or the semi-sweet white wine of Sembia. Lord Winter has a soft spot for adventurers, fondly remembering her own career, and is apt to give them the benefit of the doubt. She keeps a close watch on all such types who enter her territory, knowing adventurers can be a source of rapid and ever-growing trouble but in the current situation they are more often than not the only profesionales she can rely on to handle the many problems to plague the nation.
