Piper was a self-proclaimed prophet residing in Hilltop.
He would constantly rant about prophecies that never seemed to come true—causing a great deal of stress to Mayor Veraunt Shuttlescomb and the village guards.
In 1372 DR, when Hol Halstrom called Piper a fool for claiming that death was coming to Hilltop, Piper was angered by this and proclaimed that Hol would die within the week. Halstrom turned up dead on the outskirts of the village just a few days later, nearly decapitated. Piper discovered Halstrom's body and added several wounds to the corpse, hoping to attract followers by claiming Hol's death was the cause of a new, unnamed god. In the wake of this and a kobold attack on Hilltop shortly after Halstrom's death, Piper attracted a small following and spread fear among the populace of the Hilltop.
Behind the scenesEdit
In the computer game Neverwinter Nights: Shadows of Undrentide, the player can receive a quest to get rid of Piper from Haniah Dales. Among the many methods of disposing of him, the player may convince Piper to travel to either Neverwinter, Silverymoon, or Waterdeep. They can also convince him to rejoin the town militia by buying back his decrepit sword or reveal that he defiled Hol's body after the kobolds killed him, running him out of town in the process.
