Reign of Winter
Village Priest Rolf Halzberg
Waldsby’s tiny village chapel is dedicated to Pharasma. The village priest, Rolf Halzberg, offers what little comfort he can to the beleaguered villagers. Officially, the White Witches take a dim view of organized religion—other than the faiths of Lamashtu and Zon-Kuthon—but in practice, small temples such as this one are usually tolerated in villages throughout Irrisen. Rolf finds himself the frequent target of harassment by the Pale Tower’s soldiers, but he remains in his parish, knowing that the villagers have nowhere else to turn for the services he provides. He helps deliver Waldsby’s babies and buries the dead, records these births and deaths, and performs marriages for Waldsby’s lovers.
