OVERHAUL WIP

Garth is the innkeeper of The Frost Hound Tavern in Hawkethorne, and is considered a pillar of its community. He's the closest thing to a leader the people of Hawkethorne have. Garth used to be a thief in his early life before he settled down in Hawkethorne. During his thieving days he was part of a company in which the captain (who would later become his wife) took a liking to him right off. The company kept on for a few years until their luck ran out when one summer his captain tells him that she was pregnant with his kids. It took everything Garth had to convince his wife to settle down, but eventually they did. Sometime after the kids were born she was exiled from Hawkethorne, leaving the kids with him. The exact reason as to why its kept a secret and those who know do not speak of it. Garth also has an old gymnasium near the eastern gates of Hawkethorne, in which after the visiting the gym; two days later Brint/Brienne will clean up the place and mention that he/she talked with Garth about it and thought of chipping in since its like a little home away from home.

"We’ve gooot... milk, fresh from the moo. Cheese, meat... oh! Beer, beer too. Mostly a hobby, but we brew a bunch. Sell some to old man Garth up the way. You can probably smell it from here!"
Anna

Appearance

A towering old wolf-man named Garth runs the place along with his daughter Gwyneth, the serving girl. ... Her father is gruff and speaks little, but the two of them are your only company most days. At night, a few of the local shopkeepers and traders will come in for a drink, but the storm makes even small ventures down the dirt-packed road a less than appealing proposition.

The Frost Hound Tavern, home away from home here in the northlands. The place is small but cozy, with several tables sandwiched between a roaring hearthfire and a bar so polished that it shines. Sawdust coats the wooden floor, soaking up spilled drinks. Behind the bar are racks and racks of ales and lagers — hearty drinks for a hearty people. Garth, the grizzled grey-furred lupine owner, stands behind the bar in his usual place, wiping off mugs or carting out drinks to his handful of patrons.

Interactions

During the Tutorial


Prior to the events of the tutorial, the Champion had been staying at the Frost Hound for 3 days. Garth will call out to them, snapping them out of their long reverie as he comments that they look like they fell asleep at their feet. If the Champion is a Lupine or an Orc he will add some history on the Lupine pack or the bad blood between the Lupines and Orcs. Although ultimately he will pour the Champion a drink, and ask them what's been on their mind since they've been such a good guest. Before the Champion can give an answer, a crash and howling winds comes through the door as a hooded woman weakly calls for help. Nobody moves for a long moment until Garth hobbles towards her with his cane while the rest of the folk turn their heads away. Should the Champion Investigate and Chastise, they will help Garth in assisting the catfolk girl as she collapses. If the Champion chastised the other people for not helping, a middle-aged woman rips off her long skirt and hands it to Garth as a bandage for the headwound the girl; Cait has. If they chose to investigate instead, Garth will rip off his apron and push it against her wound as he instructs the Champion to keep the girl talking as he'll try and clean it up. A few minutes later, Cait recovers enough to tell what happened to her. She states that she has to go back and find her sister, to which Garth sighs wearily and states that she can't go back out there all by herself and he'd go with her but his leg is an issue. Cait says she has to and looks at the Champion, desperate for help. They will agree to accompany her to find her sister but before they head out Garth will give the Champion a weapon befitting of their Class.

After dealing with Kasyrra, when the Champion eventually wakes, they make their way to the Frost Hound's common room to find Garth behind the bar and Cait sitting at one of the tables. The stairs creak, announcing their presence and the two turn their attention towards the Champion. While Cait runs over to give them a big hug, they ask how long they'd been out to which Garth replies that its been a little over a week. He adds that they're lucky to be alive after the flash of light that lit up the night for miles as the old temple collapsed. The Champion's stomach rumbles and Garth laughs, telling the Champion to have a seat as their overdue for some grub.

Garth Goes Dad Mode


Written by The Observer


If Gwyn is at least 25% through her current pregnancy and Garth hasn't talked to the Champion about this before, when entering The Frost Hound, there will be a 20% chance for this scene to occur. Additional dialogue will occur if the following conditions are met (not all need to be met but will add to scene variety):

Upon entering the inn, the Champion will note the current lack of patrons and decidedly chiller atmosphere. Garth notices the Champion and tells them that they need to talk for a moment, and he's not taking no for an answer. When asked what's the matter, he brings up that its about his daughter. If the Champion had saved Garret by completing Dog Days, he will state:

"Just like the first time, the idiot tongues are going around wagging that her brother was the one who'd done the deed, and I made sure to shut those up real quick. It's one of the benefits of being a pillar of the community"

If they had not rescued Garret yet, then he will state that this has happened before and although she is a big girl and can make her own decisions, he's still her father and its only natural for him to be concerned. It would have been nice if they'd could've asked him first although if nothing else, they had helped Cait when no one else would. The Champion comments that that was a low bar to clear, Garth adds that he's not an unreasonable man, that's but a minimum, they must not go around upsetting her like the last one did or else they'd be in trouble with Garret (if rescued):

"Don't underestimate him. Sometimes, my son being an idiot has its uses. He can't be bargained with. He can't be reasoned with. He doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And he absolutely will not stop, ever, until you're dragged back in here by the scruff of your neck to pay your dues to my little girl. You get me?"

If Garret hasn't been rescued yet, then they'd be in trouble with her mother:

"Let's just say that my idiot son takes after her where it counts. Like Garret, she can't be bargained with. She can't be reasoned with. She doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. She has a nose for these things; she'll un-exile herself if she catches so much as a whiff of shit on the wind. And she absolutely will not stop, ever, until you're dragged back in here by the scruff of your neck to pay your dues to my little girl. You get me?"

With that out of the way, he asks that the Champion just take good care of his little girl before returning to his business.

Quintillus


Written by BubbleLord


Having rescued Quintillus from the cultists in the Harvest Valley, the Champion has the option to escort him to Hawkethorne, recommend him to visit Garth at The Frost Hound and tell him that they sent him, or tell him to fuck off. If he was escorted or recommended to go to Hawkethorne, he will have a talk with Garth. When talking to Quintillus about their Arrangement, he will say that he's preparing a guide about the cult so the local leaders can be on the lookout of any of Master Tollus' spies in exchange a room at the inn, although he states that Tollus' agents have no real reason to infiltrate the town anymore considering the success of the Ritual that summoned Kasyrra.

Sex

You can't have sex with Garth, ever, so don't bother asking.

Quest Related

Dog Days


Garth will ask the Champion to investigate the disappearance of his son Garret, who left for a logging camp before the blizzard hit and hasn't been seen since. The camp is situated on the western side of the Old Forest.

Right of Conquest


Garth has informed the Champion of an orcish warcamp in the eastern foothills, close enough to threaten Hawkethorne. While they're not exactly an army, maybe they could do something to dissuade them from raiding down into the lowlands, so the town and its inhabitants could rest easier.

Shades of the Past


Garth looks like he's got a job for the Champion, a request to retrieve something important to his wife from an old lupine fort. He's asked them to inquire with River, a local bard staying at the Frost Hound for details.

Farmhand's Freeholds


Garth mentions the recent events happening in Harvest Valley and is concerned about a farm that supplies a big chunk of food for the Frost Hound and its inhabitants. He will ask the Champion to check up on the farm and make sure everything's alright.

Blacksmith's New Clothes


During the Champion's date with Ragnild, they will wine and dine at The Frost Hound with Garth wearing a very ill-fitting waistcoat and bowtie when he serves them a bucket of iced wine.

Missing Meows


If the Champion refuses Hirrud's request, he will become angry and surge to his feet quickly, however he falls flat on his face and becomes unconscious. Should Brint not be around, he may call Garret to throw Hirrud out or he'll do it himself because Hirrud didn't pay for a room. If the Champion confronts Hirrud with the Cat Harem about their freedom, the common folk around will withdraw into their homes or businesses though they will see Garth just staring out the Frost Hound's window with a big grin on his grizzled old mug.

Trivia

  • The quote from Garth describing his son during his Dad Mode scene is a reference to The Terminator when Kyle Reese explains to Sarah Connor what the Terminator is.
  • Garth appears as a quote in the harpies codex entry.
