Hoegwar was a man who specialised in selling outfitting equipment such as backpacks, canteens, camping equipment, and supplies for adventurers going out on long expeditions. He also carried a limited assortment of traveller's foods like cram, jerky, and dried fruit. His prices were reasonable, and his merchandise was known for its longevity and reliability.
The original TOR supplement used the personal name "Hoegwar", which was taken from the MERP Tharbad module. Hoegwar possibly contains the elements hœgr (Old Norse, "skilled") and varr (Old Norse, "attentive, aware, wise") and is a fitting name for a man of Northern Rhovanion.
