Rangers of the North
NPC Barliman Butterbur
Innkeeper at The Prancing Pony
Barliman Butterbur owned the Prancing_Pony for an unknown period of time in the late Third Age. He was fond of Hobbits and had two hobbit employees: Bob, who worked in the stables, and Nob, a servant. He knew Gandalf very well as he frequently came and stayed at the inn from time to time over the years.
Barliman is a good-hearted fat man but notorious for his very bad memory, “One thing drives out another” he says.
