Don Diego is a weapons master who resides in the practice yard south of the Main Hall where he offers adventurers the chance to improve their fighting abilities.

Function within The Guild

Upon payment of 1000 gold, Don Diego allows adventurers the chance to attack one of his practice dummies with one of the five main weapon types, Axe, Sword, Bow, Spear or club. A successful strike against the dummy will let the adventurer improve her/his skills with the weapon (often by several points), however it is equally possible to pay the money and then fail to connect. This is likely why Don Diego, along with the other Merchants outside the Main Hall is said not to carry the Guild seal of approval and any adventurers dealing with him do so at their own risk.

Personality

Don Diego is said to be extremely egotistical, as well as being highly skilled with weapons, likely why he sits back and watches while people attack his practice dummies rather than offering more personal training, however it can't be denied his training is effective since it is possible for adventurers to raise their abilities to truly super human levels.

Appearances

Don Diego first appeared in Rick Volberding's Graphics Main Hall and was ported to Eamon Deluxe along with the other vendors from the village. His personality was expanded in the Eamon Deluxe manual by Luke Hewitt and Frank Black in an effort to give the newer characters in Eamon Deluxe the same sort of background as those from the original Eamon.

Trivia

Don Diego's name is likely derived from that of Don Diego de la Vega, the secret identity of Zorro. Zorro (Spanish for fox) is a dashing, mask-wearing Mexican hero created by Johnston McCulley in 1919, who is also said to be a weapons expert.
