Aeramas was a mage who lived in Velen and met a gruesome death on a pyre. With no surviving heirs, his expansive rural residence was abandoned. The mage had been a raring tyromancy enthusiast. Tyromancy is the art of divining the future from cheese. This is a very rare specialization among mages, one only practiced by those for whom a social life is not a high priority - there reason being that the cheese they use to divine with is fouler smelling than a drowner's scrotum. No wonder Aeramas' home hadn't been looted. In his dungeon Aeramas had some true treasures, notably The Emmentaler which he had cleverly hid from the world by setting murderous cheeses as guards. Tyromancers are not normally the cheery sort, but Aeramas certainly would have been delighted to know that his treasure had ended up in good hands.
