Loremaster Ermenred is just an NPC who doesn't serve any specific purpose other than to amuse players with his dialogue.
- "Do I know you?"
- "Don't be foolish. I never forget a face... certainly not one as... ahem... distinctive as yours. Surely you're mistaken.
- You young ones, always so sure of yourselves. But I'm afraid, my inexperienced friend, that you are mistaken."
- "Yes, yes, I'm sure we've met somewhere before. I never forget a face.
- Nonsense. I may be old and forgetful, but I'm not THAT old and forgetful."
- Loremaster Ermenred is also listed as the author of the foreword and "Ancient History" section of the Factions official guidebook.
- On April's Fool 2008 fake updates, Loremaster Ermenred was jokingly said to allow characters to travel back to Pre-Searing Ascalon after they've successfully performed a number of tasks.
