A lone coachman, Waldred Widmann drives a coach with a physician and their attractive assistant
Who's in the Coach?
I'm adding coaches to these tables, as coaches and coaching inns are common in the Empire and Old World.
Coaches make a great place for a group of PCs and NPCs such as nobles, vampires and rich merchants will often be found within. The dangers of outlaws, beastmen, fallen trees and zealous toll collectors make for good challenges to your group too.
Two columns give those driving the coach and passengers or cargo. A postilion usually rides the lead horse of a team.
