The Village Of White Rock: Hamish The Mage
Should you need the services of a mage while in White Rock, your only real choice is Hamish. There might be another mage, or even a Wizard passing through town if you are very luck, but more often than not, Hamish is your only choice.
Nobody knows his last name, if he has one, and nobody is really sure when he came to live here, except that it was at least 45 years ago. Hamish seems to have learned the mystic arts almost, or maybe just beyond, the point where a Mage can become a Wizard, but then walked away from formal study.
Hamish is not a specialist in any particular field of magic, but more a generalist who knows a few spells from all the fields. He does seem to favor Transformation, Restoration and Alteration spells, but does not limit himself to them.
You will find Hamish at his modest home on the very end of Winding Lane. He lives with his cat, Protzel, his dog, Bumper and something invisible he calls Wivv. Hamish is, while very eccentric, a pleasant person. He is generally willing to help people if he can, assuming they can pay his fee. Said fees are not always payable with money.
Hamish is usually at home, unless he’s not.

The Village Of White Rock: The House In The Woods
Located one mile out of town along the North River Road, the House in the Woods is a full service brothel owned and operated by Mr. & Mrs. Talidor.
Set back from the road in a lovely wooded region, the large two story home has a staff of 18 young men and women of 5 different races, all ready to meet the needs of the customer. In addition, drinks can be purchased, along with any potions that might help a person in their performance or enjoyment.
During festival times, the Talidor’s may bring in as many as 10 more staff, to cover the increase in business. This often includes some of the more “exotic” races.
Young people seeking a first encounter of the sexual kind should ask about the “First Timer’s Discount”. Discounts are also available for the elderly and our active duty military.
The House in the Woods is open from noon until 2:00 am every day except Moonday.
