Not much traffic here now that the book is oop. What a shame (that it's out of print). Every time I read it, or the Yggsburgh Town expansions, I am moved to tears over what might have been...
Anyway, here is a clue for you: This unlucky gentleman is a nephew of a well-to-do proprietress of a shop on Citadel Square.
Yep, the book is underrated perhaps. I myself liked it a lot when I bought it, but in the last year, I've really read it more and more and think it's just brilliant.
Heh, your clue was perfect and it was a great question. I was just about to say Bork Craigs, the 8 foot dwarf!
So, I believe it's Howard Astenby then?
But, if that's correct - I think you win a point and get to ask another question!!!
Hats off to dunbruha.
