The Naga Whistlestop

The Naga Whistlestop is the only real store in Blythe and is ran by the third richest man in town, Sayton. He has made his wealth through shrewd business acumen, as he has positioned himself the sole seller of many goods and nearly every farmer owes him money, as he is their lifeline. Nearly everything that is not perishable is sold at The Naga Whistlestop, pots, pans, and farm implements made by Kalman the Blacksmith, dried herbs cultivated by Taiga the Herb Witch, grains milled by Woreld, weapons made by Nor’Tor’ak, a few magical enchantments from Mateus, and the odd items that get imported from traveling merchants who travel through town.

Known only to a few, but Sayton also has a stock of some semi-illicit goods. Lord Enyertur looks the other way, because Sayton keeps him stocked with Juia. Juia is a powerful opiate that is usually smoked in pipes. Smoking Juia causes a HT-2 roll or the user acquires the Euphoria condition (B428). Success still gives a penalty of -1 to all DX, IQ, skill, and self-control rolls.

Sayton is in his early 40s, but his wife passed away last winter, leaving him with one son (age 16) and three daughters (ages 18, 14, and 9). His son works in the fields and is a bit of a disappointment. His eldest daughter works at the Mountain Refuge, while his two younger daughters work with him at the store. Leeia, is the only child of his that has her father’s ambition and skill.
