Description


The owner and operator of the Thare Plantation in Mhen'ga, which can be found in the middle of the jungle.


Appearance


Professor Shep Darnock is a 5'10" male human who looks to be in his late middle age, which probably means he’s a couple of centuries old at least. Dressed in a plain cotton safari suit, he has a genial, interested expression seemingly carved onto his square, beardless face. He is quite beefy and has tough walnut skin that speaks of a privileged lifetime spent mostly outdoors. His white hair is thick but well-groomed. There is no indication of any outlandish gene modification upon him, except for the sort that would eliminate such irritations as liver spots, back pain and glasses.


History/Personality/Information of Note


Shep Darnock is a long-time employee of Snugglé. He is a deeply religious compassionate individual with an idealistic world view of honest labor and modesty.


Interactions


When visiting the plantation Captain Steele will be invited in by Darnock for a meal. During the meal, Steele can chat on a few topics. After the meal, Steele may be tended to by Able and take a rest or have a full-night sleep. The options will vary based on the time of day.

After completing Darnock's Plantation Quest, 5 days later he will greet you with a free sample of one of Snugglé's new fruit's and vegetables if you didn't burn down the plantation.

Every 7 days after that, Darnock will give you a new sample.
