Gerald Earner is one of the original members of the initial group of 500 to be exiled. He is a wagon driver. On day one, he loaded up his wagon with supplies from the Portal Castle in preparation for the journey west. On day two, the party saved him from a sinkhole while the group was passing through the badlands. From our observations, it appeared that he decided to take an untested path through the area of the sinkhole. We rescued him, his wagon, his supplies, and both of his horses.
