Thea Halfgate is the second eldest daughter of Flendel Halfgate. She is an attractive woman in a brightly colored apron. Her house is found SW of Northwarden and is surrounded by heavenly smells, as she cooks pastries in her oven. She is a widow and keeps her husband's Medium Crossbow in a wooden chest beneath her bed, but currently is interested in a soldier at Northwarden, responsible for repairing and maintaining the weapons.
She asks the party to teach her Weaponcraft skills so as to approach that soldier, and offers her late husband's crossbow.
