Marcos as depicted in the Super Eamon Main Hall
|Affiliation||Guild of Free Adventurers|
Marcos Cavielli is the principal weapons dealer and armorer for the Guild of Free Adventurers and operates a shop in the Main Hall. Unlike Hokas Tokas he doesn't feature in any adventures, but his "standard Marcos weapons" appear in various stories; the term indicates a basic-quality starter weapon.
Function within the Guild
Marcos sells one of each of the five main weapon types – axe, bow, mace, spear, and sword – and each weapon is available in good, fair, or shabby models. None are particularly powerful and it's common for adventurers to find superior weapons on adventures. Marcos also sells leather, chain, or plate armor plus shields, and will exchange old armor for new when an adventurer's abilities at fighting in armor rise.
The expanded Main Hall in Eamon Deluxe notes that Grendel, the high-quality weapon smith in the the village who sells more powerful and custom weapons, supplies weapons to more wealthy and experienced adventurers who may find Marcos' goods inadequate. Marcos still seems to do a brisk trade, particularly since he buys back magical weapons that adventurers may have found but not sold to Sam Slicker.
Marcos is friendly in his interactions with adventurers, but little else is known about his personality. His reactions show him simply as a courteous shopkeeper, though the manual does expressly state he doesn't give credit.
Though his weapons are often mentioned, Marcos himself has not yet featured in any other Eamon adventures besides the role he fills in the Main Hall.
