Ergin Tock is a brawny thug who took over the Sitting Duck tavern in Falcon's Hollow when its original proprietor, Larden Kried, disappeared. A letter supposedly written by Larden "Ferret" Kried explained that he decided to return to the adventurous life. Tock produced a dubious deed to the Duck, which most claim was forged, but the deed was certified as genuine by Vamros Harg. Tock was formerly a hired muscle of Thuldrin Kreed, so the townfolk realized that Thuldrin simply decided to put the Sitting Duck under his direct control. Tock and the lovely barmaid Jalene Artem, report to Kreed every morning on the past night's events at the Duck.
