Drunk Tom Albin is an Imperial pauper working as a guard at Polle Gold Mine. Even if he is almost always inhibited, he won't fail to pass on to you a great deal of rumors, which will in turn lead to a series of quests unfolding.
Tom sure takes his job seriously, although he has definitely given up on excitement and adventure, as he spends most of his day wandering around between the mine entrance and the Miners' Shack or indulging in his favourite pastime. Indeed, between 12pm and 11pm, he will be found sipping beer on the chair adjacent to the westernmost shack. The only change to his routine is once the miners' side of the Strange Noises quest is active, at which point he will stumble to the center of town and then set off to deliver you Winston's letter.
When first met, his level of intoxication will be obvious: "Hey there! They call me Drunk Tom. No idea why. *hiccup* Anything you want to know, I'll tell ya. Unless I don't know it." When asked about Stirk he will say: "Pretty island. Don't *hiccup* know much about it, but I can tell you anything you want about the mine." Selecting the new 'Polle Gold Mine' topic will net you: "Not that bad a place for a gate watcher and what not, not so sure about the miners though". If you inquire further he will reveal: "Loads of them are angry at Mr. Polle. Then there's Winston, who's been very sad lately. Oh, am I heard Samalt found something strange in the mine." Investigating on the newest topic will cause him to say: "Yeah, really depressed. I don't know what about, I'd talk to Winston about it." This will add The Abandoned Miner quest to your journal.

- His CS ID, Tomaeus Albin, is his real name. The more informal Drunk Tom Albin is however preferred.
- Tom was supposed to sleep between 11pm and 9am, but since he doesn't have access to the shacks nor is any bedroll in sight, he simply loiters around all night.
