Hall - Adventuring Ladies Academy
Adventuring Ladies Academy is run out of Fenton Hall, it is Baroness Fenton's
pet project. She uses them as you would a guard force, ensuring the safety of
the roads and tracking down raiding monsters. Lady Fenton will not allow any
men to stay in Fenton Hall, a rule she instituted to give the girls time to
concentrate on their studies. Besides combat training, Lady Fenton encourages
her students to learn Monster Lore, Tactics, and Riding. Fees for the academy
are based on the ability of a student to pay, but hard work is expected of all.
Miss Sable instructs wizards. Rogue training is rumored to occur. Religious
instruction is by priestesses and priests from Fellaren-Krae.
offers hospitality to female adventures at her home, males are shown to the
Inn. The price of their room and board is telling their stories to the girls
at a meal.
Hall is built on top of an old fortification, there is more room in the underground
passages than there is in the house above. The chapel in the Hall is dedicated
to the Red Knight, with favored positions given to female deities nearby. The
hill on which Fenton Hall is located is oddly round, a reminder of the land's
troubled past. To the south and west is Mill Lake, which adds to the defence.
There is a deep well inside.
are 4-24 students at the Academy at any given time. There are also 10 servants,
all women, mostly recruited from bad situations in Fellaren-Krae or Eidemane.
addition, the following are inhabitants of Fenton Hall:
- The Baroness Elspeth Fenton.
- Her Castellan is Mora Rockwall, a Half-orcish lady. She is one of
the strongest people in the area. She is cute for a half-orc, and is considered
attractive. If asked about her race, she claims to be "Half-orcish on
her mother's side". If attacked she will defend herself, and will receive
aid from any local resident. She has an open crush on the local blacksmith,
who does not return her affections. She spends her off hours at the Fentonford
Inn, hoping to run into him. She is a woman of action, and rarely does anything
- The house wizardess is Katherine Sable. Miss Sable has had songs
written about her beauty and grace. Her method of dress is revealing. Her
jet-black hair is now streaked in grey, her once flawless complexion creased
by wrinkles. In her younger years, she was free and wild, a spendthrift, a
flirt, and party girl. She fell in and out of love often. When she felt time
catching up to her, she tried to get her current boyfriend to propose. He
declined. She lost her temper and a spell duel erupted. Both of them ended
up banned from Waterdeep. In a funk, she was befriended by Baroness Fenton,
who brought her here as a kindred spirit. She still dresses and plays the
vamp. Complimenting her looks works well with her, but she will consider you
are only after her for her body. She has two apprentices, Darcy Stonebrook
and Isabel Snow.
- Shaniko Rainwalker is the swordmistress in residence for the Adventuring
Ladies Academy. She is exotic in appearance, with almond shaped jade hued
eyes and long blue black hair, a half-elf from the east. She does not talk
about her past, except for a barely noticeable wince when dragons are mentioned.
She has been known to say, "There are no good dragons". She rarely
ventures away from Fenton Hall. She is a reserved person, and will say little
to strangers until they have been in town a few days. As a swordmistress she
is patient and knowledgeable. She seems to know just about every weapon and
style. Lady Fenton and a few others know that a Kara-Tur dragon is hunting
her because he considers her his property.
- Isabel Snow is a young, enthusiastic half-elven girl. She is in
training as a mage and warrior. She was rescued by Academy students from the
ruins of an ancient fortification. She has no recollection of how she got
there, or who she was before. She was pale and white when she was roused from
her accursed sleep, "Snow" stuck as a name. Her hair is still white,
her skin has a more natural color now. She adores Miss Sable, and has soaked
up everything she and Shaniko can teach her.
