Otto—and Pieter—are two local goons in Stimmigen. They are very typically picked up by the watch when questioning or accusing the "usual suspects."
They'll friend almost anyone that will buy them a drink. And that means that their tongues are often loose and their loyalty very flexible.
Buy Otto—and Pieter—a drink sometime at The Bucket to hear their impossible tale of meeting the Heroes of Helmgart. Sober towns folk of Stimmigen dismiss the tale for either knowing the often tall tales of an Elf, a Halfling, a troubadour from the Grey Mountains saving Helmgart and thus dismissing the idea that they could have even visited Stimmigen so far from the Grey Mountains or just because Otto—and Pieter—are drunks that like telling others of their brush with fame.
Indeed, it did happen. But the real story is said to be recorded in the Remembrancer volumes circulating Altdorf of the Heroes. The Heroes were in Stimmigen, but they encountered two other thugs. These thugs, Johann and Heinz, were killed in the Bucket. Not by the Heroes, but by a gambler and rake named Waldemar. Otto—and Pieter—are unnamed in the recorded tales, but it is said that two others joined the deceased to kill the Heroes. Otto—and Pieter—escaped with their lives that evening because their feckless loyalty was bought with a drink.
