Affiliation: Gridania

Well met and welcome, friend. What brings you to my humble abode?

Rolfe Hawthorne is the patriarch of the Hawthorne family and owner of the Hawthorne Hut, his family's hearth and home which he shares with his wife, Rosa and daughter, Ysabel.

In his younger days, Rolfe was an adventurer, but he gave up that life to become a homesteader. Because he finds life dull by themselves, he and his family have given the local sentries and travelers free use of his land.

He enjoys listening to adventurers' stories and is generally hospitable, but he does not tolerate abuse of that hospitality—particularly where Ysabel is concerned.

During his time as an adventurer, Rolfe befriended the Sylphs and learned some of their customs. [1][2]

His kindness to the sylphs hasn't escaped their notice, as they frequently try to show their gratitude by decorating his hut with vegetables. Rolfe would prefer they leave them on his doorstep, but where's the fun in that? [3]

What do you do here?
I used to be an adventurer like you, but I gave up that life some years ago in favor of the homesteader's. This here's my place, but what comforts I have are at your disposal. Just don't get too cozy with Ysabel, my little girl. I'm more generous with my hospitality than most, but them as abuse it will get put out on their arses quick as spit. Don't say you haven't been warned.

What kind of place is this?
This here's Hawthorne Hut, my family's hearth and home. It gets dull by ourselves, so I've given the local sentries and travelers free use of the place. There's no better way to break the routine than to hear an adventurer recount his/her latest journey. Takes me back to my younger days, it does. If you have tales of your own to tell, I'd be happy to trade you some of Rosa's mead for them.
