Othdan, the eldest son of FarmerMeriden, is a young pig-farmer. The party found him locked inside the furnace room of the Plague House.
Othdan tells the party that he was on his way to visit a friend at a neighboring farm when he got curious about the Plague House. So he entered cautiously, only to be kidnapped by a brutish half-orc! He had been incarcerated in the furnace room for a few days without food or water before the party finally rescued him and brought him home.
