Wirt the Peg-Legged Boy


Wirt can be found beneath a tree in the . He can sell you the most valuable items in the whole game, but this is a very rare occasion and his prices are exorbitant. Another problem is that he will charge you 50 gold pieces just to have a look on the single item he is offering.

"Psst...over here"

Ogden the Tavern Owner


Ogden can only offer advice and a warm place to rest at his tavern. He is usually a great source of information when you are questing and is the key to continuing many of the quests. As a multiplayer character, he only offers advice on what expect when heading down below town, but sometimes that advice can and does make a difference if you follow it. Listen to his stories for clues on where to go if you are stuck.

Line when you meet him:

"Greetings good master, welcome to the Tavern of the Rising Sun"

Farnham the Drunk


Farnham hides on the far western side of town drinking his life away. Though he is incomprehensible most of the time he has seen much and can provide useful information and witty anecdotes about the other townsfolk.

Line when you meet him:

"Can't a fella drink in peace?"

In both the solo and multi-player games, quests are often started by talking to particular villagers. The mortally wounded townsman lying just outside of the church is a good example of a conversation that starts a quest (although he dies immediately there after and then disappears when the Butcher is killed). Although quests aren't as important in multi-player games as in the solo game, the quests do differ a bit and can be entertaining. Hence, you might want to chat with your neighbours on occasion. When a villager has a quest, merely walking up to them and starting the conversation will get the quest rolling, so there is no need to chat with a villager unless you really want to see what they say about a particular quest, or just in general.

Although often chatty, their gossip sometimes contain nuggets of useful playing hints. Farnham, the drunkard, is the most uninformed villager of the lot, but he is by far the most entertaining. The remaining villagers can provide useful game information, specifically pertaining to any current quests, even if they are not initiating a quest for you.
