Ridolfo, the wandering minstrel. Played by Adrian Neil.

Ridolfo

By Keith McDonald

The 'famous' Ridolfo was a minstrel who entertained the crowds, fawned after the ladies, and collected gossip that was useful to dungeoneers.


Ridolfo was an amusing troubadour and lothario, with his lute, charm, and Italian accent.

He often helped teams by sharing knowledge, such as passwords or causeway codes.

Ridolfo was generally a friendly presence to dungeoneers. But he was handy with a sword, as Sylvester Hands and a pooka both discovered.

Singer of songs, carrier of words - and I break the ladies' hearts as well.

Ladies' man

Ridolfo is very much the ladies' man, as some of the female dungeoneers discovered. He travels a lot because he is always cuckolding husbands. This is how he learns so many hints.

Dungeoneers can earn a clue from him by sharing news or gifting him new songs or music.

I especially of course got to thank you on behalf of all the ladies with-a the empty lives.

Ridolofo

Ridolfo's habits also get him into trouble with powerful men. Count Brinkatore has Ridolfo locked in the pillory.

Hordriss the Confuser puts him under a charm to make him a fisherman. The team that encounters Ridolfo as a fisherman must negotiate with a disguised Hordriss to have the enchantment lifted.

Ridolfo rescues them in the nick of time from Lord Fear's Dreadnort.
