Chanczlatha Luruin (NG
hm P11 [Lathander]) is a locally revered
animal healer and physic (a doctor given to using herbs
and medicinal broths) whose life is devoted to healing and
caring for the sick. He is a quiet, stammering, unassuming man
with gentle hands and a secret delight in bawdy songs and jokes.
Chanczlatha is often called on to heal those who.ve fallen

The faithful of Lathander are always healed for free, but Chanczlatha charges fees for all other spellcasting. This helps him cover the high costs of his medicines and of feeding the animals he keeps. He often keeps alive beasts that others would leave to die. Like his wife Baerlatha, Chanczlatha never leaves sight of Bargewright Inn. Ruldarr (CG hm F3) is the owner of Ruldarr.s Pipes, Locks, Tobacco, and Fine Furniture.

Notably, she bears the powerful Netherese spell dragonshape. She uses it when in great personal danger or to defend Bargewright Inn against
