The Descendants of Tarakona
Baron Goldburg is a merchant noble who is extremly greedy and bought his title.
Baron Goldburg is an extremely successful merchant. So successful that he has managed to purchase his own nobility title. He has moved to King’s Hope to take advantage of the new markets and the ample amount of money to be made.
His greed and desire for more power has led him to help delay the completion of the wall. Mostly it is assumed he just does not want to spend the money, but he may have other motivations. He is another tentative suspect in the attempted assassination of Count Dashwood.
The heroes have spoken with him and even rifled through some of his documents they found unattended. In an effort to draw his motives out, they proposed an expedidtion to explore part of the new land and make officaly contact with the Kobolds. The convincing argument was that the Baron would be credited with either peacefull (and profitable) negotiations or be responsible for the removal of them, if they proved to be hostile.
