Gnort is a mute hobgoblin. He wandered into Oakhurst several years ago and started performing odd jobs for the folks there. Gnort is not overly bright (Dumber than a sack of stupid is the term, I believe), but he’s strong and likes to work. When not working, Gnort drinks beer in the Ol’ Boar Inn. Gnort generally keeps to himself.
There are a few in Oakhurst that believe that Gnort is a spy for goblins. Others feel that he is a representative of other unsavory folk from different areas. But most folks seem to take him at face value.
