Almaestaddamir Auldcastle, commonly called Almaes, is an alchemist who lives in Ashabenford. He is known for crafting and selling such items as tanglefoot bags, sunrods, various acids and antitoxins and smokepowder. Almaes once offered to build a smokepowder-keg-throwing device to combat the drow for Haresk Malorn, but he politely (and likely wisely) declined the offer.[1]
