Townspeople were the inhabitants of Gallows Town in the late 14th century. They were all members of the Mad family.


In 1386, Zarok the Sorcerer began his plan to try and conquer Gallowmere a second time. He cast the Evernight spell in order to put the townspeople to sleep and then stole their souls. However, the sorcerer unwittingly resurrected his long dead nemesis Sir Daniel Fortesque. Sir Dan made his way across Gallowmere and eventually defeated the sorcerer, returning the townspeople's souls back to them.

"Poor villagers - the master possesses them. It mustn't hurt them. Hurt guards though, they seek out an object of great power."

Sir Dan's goal is to leave the townspeople unharmed. Killing too many of the townspeople will prevent him from collecting the chalice.
