"Gentleman Jehann" : Jehann's origins are unknown, as is his true name. His nickname reflects his impeccable manners toward his victims as well as his fellow bandits. He robs only from the rich and the high society while leaving the poor - and the ladies - alone. He has thus become somewhat of a popular hero.

Karolek Two-Fist: A violent Alphatian pirate who preys on ships - especially weak or storm-damaged ones - in the New Alphatian Sea. His brutal attacks end with the execution of all on board.

Born: AC 985. Hair: None (bald). Eyes: Blue. Height: 6'1".

Reinhard Madelhari: A former Heldannic Knight, Reinhard betrayed his order, killed several other Knights, burned down a temple of Vanya and escaped with a stolen Heldannic Warbird. The exact reasons are still unknown, but it is believed the Heldannic Inquisition had something to do with it. Reinhard has used his military training and the skyship to conquer independent dominions in Norwold, using the gold to build up his own army in the hopes of carving out his own nation in the anarchistic wildlands. Reinhard is just in battle and does not kill needlessly, but his crimes against the Heldannic Knights have marked him for death anyway. There is a 100,000 Gelders reward offered by the Heldannic Knights for bringing back his body to them.

Born: AC 982. Hair: Blond; wears a trimmed beard. Eyes: Blue. Height: 6'1".

Magical Items: Full plate +3, shield +1, longsword +2, bag of holding, Heldannic Warbird.

Lucas de Nadore: Lucas is a wheellock sharpshooting elf of Cimarron County. He is one of the best, and enjoys challenging those who do not stand a chance of winning just to acquire their money/belongings after a "lawful" duel. He also simply enjoys shooting people. No one has yet managed to even come close to hitting him during a duel. Back in Cimarron, his practices are acceptable by law, but in the other Savage Baronies, he has become a wanted man. Although there is no huge reward for his capture, anyone who defeats Lucas is bound to make quite a reputation in the Baronies.

Psa'gh: Leader of the Hardanger Kobolds, Psa'gh is believed to be the most powerful and intelligent kobold to have ever lived on Mystara.

Their forces were defeated, but Psa'gh's location is still unknown.

Xavier Tanos: This dashing man is a thief extraordinaire. In AC 1013 he stole the seal of the Republic of Darokin from Chancellor Mauntea's office, then boldly ransomed it. This year, he somehow managed to acquire a holy artifact from under the noses of the priests of the Church of Karameikos. Rumours now claim that his next target, sometime in AC 1015, will be the fabled Star Of Ylaruam. Xavier sometimes demands a ransom, sometimes merely returns the object, and sometimes keeps them as a memento. His motive appears mainly to be glory and reputation, but he also keeps enough to live in a very comfortable lifestyle. His current whereabouts are unknown. There is a 500,000 Daros reward in Darokin for his capture; dead or alive. The Church of Karameikos is similarly offering a 250,000 Gold Royals reward for the return of their relic.

Thar: This former leader of the Broken Lands has still managed to create a huge horde despite loosing his position to a kobold (Kol XIV).
