The Applesmiths have a curious custom which has been in place since the founding of the family. Anyone marrying into the family takes on the name of Applesmith, be they man or woman, they become an Applesmith. The first Applesmith was Lobelia Applesmith, the Grand Dam of the entire Applesmith line. She started the orchard on her own after discovering a grove of bittersweet apple trees above the city of Isarae. Eventually she expanded the orchard and took a husband, and eventually having children. As her family grew, she branched out into cider making and started the legacy of Applesmith Cider. The name Applesmith means something in this area and so far no one has had any reason to try and change it. Rarely an individual has left Snood to travel, and may have changed their family name, but the hobbits in Snood keep the family name.

The Applesmith brand has two distinct ciders, a dry and a sweet. Both are highly prized by innkeeps from Mehthris and Malduahr, and even further afield. Malva is working with Bungo and the orchard growers to create another brew based off a new cider apple she had imported by the traders.

While the Applesmiths are one of the wealthiest families in the area, they are not above their neighbors. When Isarae was destroyed they welcomed the refugees who fled up the mountain and gave the people a place to recover, a place to work, and eventually a place to live. They aren't lavish or boastful fold, but rather sensible. The things they purchase may be more expensive, those things they can't get from other townsfolk, but they are also sturdy and well build.


Talmarkin is the seventh child of Bungo and Poppy Applesmith, a well regarded and hobbit clan best known for their hospitality and cider. Being the youngest of seven children, with adult siblings, Talmarkin learned how to be unobtrusive at a very young age. You could say his training as a rogue started at home, learning to dodge angry sisters, hide from searching parents, and nicking food from the kitchens without being caught.
One of the best places to hide, much to the consternation of Wren and Peridot (often tasked to watch him and the twins), was to escape to the old forest. Since the age of 4 Talmarkin has wandered the dark sylvan expanse, his forays going further and further afield as he grew older.

Rogue Traits

  • Expertise Thieves' Tools, Sleight of Hand, Stealth, Remnant Runes
  • Sneak Attack Beginning at 1st level, you know how to strike subtly and exploit a foe’s distraction. Once per turn, you can deal an extra 1d6 damage to one creature you hit with an attack if you have advantage on the attack roll. The attack must use a finesse or a ranged weapon.
    You don’t need advantage on the attack roll if another enemy of the target is within 5 feet of it, that enemy isn’t incapacitated, and you don’t have disadvantage on the attack roll.
    The amount of the extra damage increases as you gain levels in this class, as shown in the Sneak Attack column of the Rogue table.
  • Thieves’ Cant During your rogue training you learned thieves’ cant, a secret mix of dialect, jargon, and code that allows you to hide messages in seemingly normal conversation. Only another creature that knows thieves’ cant understands such messages. It takes four times longer to convey such a message than it does to speak the same idea plainly.
    In addition, you understand a set of secret signs and symbols used to convey short, simple messages, such as whether an area is dangerous or the territory of a thieves’ guild, whether loot is nearby, or whether the people in an area are easy marks or will provide a safe house for thieves on the run.
  • Cunning Action Starting at 2nd level, your quick thinking and agility allow you to move and act quickly. You can take a bonus action on each of your turns in combat. This action can be used only to take the Dash, Disengage, or Hide action.
  • Roguish Archetype Arcane Trickster
    • Spellcasting Ability
    • Mage Hand Legerdemain Starting at 3rd level, when you cast mage hand, you can make the spectral hand invisible, and you can perform the following additional tasks with it:
      • • You can stow one object the hand is holding in a container worn or carried by another creature.
      • • You can retrieve an object in a container worn or carried by another creature.
      • • You can use thieves’ tools to pick locks and disarm traps at range.
      • You can perform one of these tasks without being noticed by a creature if you succeed on a Dexterity (Sleight of Hand) check contested by the creature’s Wisdom (Perception) check.
        In addition, you can use the bonus action granted by your Cunning Action to control the hand.
  • Uncanny Dodge Starting at 5th level, when an attacker that you can see hits you with an attack, you can use your reaction to halve the attack’s damage against you.
  • Evasion Beginning at 7th level, you can nimbly dodge out of the way of certain area effects, such as a red dragon’s fiery breath or an ice storm spell. When you are subjected to an effect that allows you to make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, you instead take no damage if you succeed on the saving throw, and only half damage if you fail.
