Shadows of Vesperton
Shatter Pike is the male half-orc owner of the Alley, the center of Vesperton’s seamy underbelly. Pike felt that there was a demand in any community for a relaxed, rule-free environment where life’s more frowned-upon pleasures could be indulged, and so he built the Alley in that spirit. The only guideline he follows is to toss out troublemakers who look like they might cause damage to the place itself. He has a close business relationship with Garnok, who provides bouncer services in exchange for a place to run his gambling ring.
