** Everyone, no matter the age, wants to be useful. **
An old, white haired man sitting at a table off to the side can he heard speaking with a slight quaver in his voice with a young woman who just arrived.
"Yes, yes. I am Claustipher. Do you need something scribed or a tale to marvel your friends?"
From what she says she clearly wants something else and the man pauses for a moment thinking. His eyes grow a little wistful.
"No no, I am sorry. I no longer have my spell book form my adventuring days, it went to my student. I.... I can't cast magic like that anymore just simple stuff."
"Well maybe I can help. I may not be powerful like I was decades ago but I am still sharper then most, lets go look."
With that the old man grabs his old staff, levers himself up, and exits with her. You can see a twinkle in his eyes that wasn't there at the start of the conversation and a small grin.
"You know young lady, you remind me of an elf I knew once. She had golden hair like you but she was a devil with a sword. Could even deliver a spell though it. Why one time......" he continues with his story until out of sight.
Claustipher Whetwhistle settled in Phaendar about twenty years ago after deciding that his adventuring days were over. A man of 52 shouldn't spend all his time sleeping in the wild after all. He had seen much of the world and done his part for society. Most importantly he had trained an apprentice well to take up his mantel and as a parting gift even gave him his time-worn spell book. He keept a small book, like a novice mage, for little things that might prove useful but that was it.
Now he makes a modest living identifying magical items, doing a bit of research for people and, primarily, copying documents for people. His mind is sharp but he feels the end of his life approaching and doubts it holds one last adventure.
