The Net Rogues’ Gallery – NPCs for Fantasy Games

The Net Rogues’ Gallery is one of the dozens of “Netbooks” that were created in the 80s/90s on Usenet and Fidonet messages boards to provide NPCs (Non-Player characters) for the First (DnD) and Second (ADnD) editions of Dungeons and Dragons. Despite that, most of these should take very little work to make into a useful character for the 3.0 and 3.5 (D20 Versions,) for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, or use as templates for other Fantasy role playing games.

The Net Rogues’ Gallery


Compiled by Steven R. Hamby 1st August 1993

Have you ever been running a game of AD&D and suddenly find you need an
NPC to help your players out of a sticky situation when you haven’t prepared
any? Or turned up for a gaming session and found you’ve left your character
sheets at home? Or needed an arch-villain to give the game your running an
unexpected twist?
If the answer to any (or all) of these questions is yes then this work might
be of some use to you.
A “Rogues’ Gallery” is a collection of NPCs available for a DM to use in
his/her game to help or hinder the players. Many companies produce them for
use in theirs and other peoples game systems. This one was put together by
me using the contributions of some of the members of the AD&D discussion
list (AD&D-L@UTARLVM1.UTA.EDU) and my own “old” PCs and NPCs.
The major differences between the Net Rogues’ Gallery and other similar
publications are that:
A, this one is made up of material provided bt players and DMs of AD&D, not
games designers.
B, this one will be up-dated upon on a regular basis (provided people keep
contributing to it), which the others don’t.
C, its completely free and copies can be passed out to your friends free of
charge, ever heard of a gaming company allowing you to do that!

Of course there is still one thing to remember. If you wish to change any of
the entries within this work then it is recommended that you contact the
owner of that entry for his/her permission (the ones with no name or e-mail
address associated with them belong to me) before doing so.

If you wish to contribute to the NRG, complain about it, or point out any
“errors”, then please e-mail me at the following address.

Alzandra is the daughter of a rich merchant from the city of Candanus.
As a child she was somewhat spoilt by her parents, indulging her every whim;
including training in the use of weapons and combat.
Alzandra grew up into a attractive looking woman of statuesque appearance.
However, she was also arrogant, aloof, and refused to behave in the manner in
which a woman of her station should. Her father berated her constantly and in
the end threatened to send her to a convent of the church of Jesunkhil.
That day she sold most of her jewelry, bought a suit of chain mail, a broad
sword, provisions, and a horse and left the city for the capital city.
Once there she joined a mercenary company, with which, until recently, she
was still adventuring with.
However, she is still arrogant and aloof.


Arrinoth Cutblade – Cleric

From: Alexande Shternshain

LEVEL : 5 D: 10
HP : 23 CO: 8
AC : 4 CH: 9
AGE : 49




BACKGROUND: He was born in the capital-city of his country, to a family of
wealthy merchants. Wealthy, that is, until he decided he just HAD to study
the arcane art of magic. He wasn’t very good, so he had to go through magic
school 3 times. This nearly impoverished his parents, who just couldn’t say
no to their only son. At last, at age of 25, he became a wizard. After
several years of working in the local guild, he decided that casting
IDENTIFY spells for passing adventurers is just fu#$%king unintersting.
So, our hero decided to go out and see the world. He joined a party of
adventurers, and for some time, all was going well: they fought monsters,
won a fair amount of treasure and excitement (he got to level 4 in the
process). UNTIL, one cursed day, they had the misery to find GERIZAG, the
fabled city of undead. In the city’s largest palace, the party was attacked
by a spectre. The creature was in a frenzy of destruction, after they
mistaskingly released him from his grave. Almost all party members lost
life levels in that fight. Arrinoth was the unlickiest. He was struck
twice, and reduced to level ZERO. His surviving companions carried his
almost lifeless body home , beyond Blue Moon Mountains. But Arrinoth
didn’t die. His exceptional health (well, it WAS exception before his
little ‘accident’) helped him to recover, 6 month later. In a shock ,
he discovered, that he lost ALL his magical talent, for wich he worked
for years. Others would break down, but not him. As soon as he could
walk , he went to the nearest temple of RUSLAN THE MIGHTY (deity of war),
and simply said to the high priest :’I want to learn how to defeat undead.
Teach me, please.’. The high priest decided to put him through a test.
He said :’ If you are willing to sacrifice what used to be most precios to
you, RUSLAN will receive you. Hearing this, Arrinoth went home, brought
his spellbook, and before the eyes of the priest, burned it. The temple
was filled with unnaturally bright light. “THE MIGHTY ONE agreed to
receive you” – said the high priest. And so in was. Arrinoth studied
hard to make his way through the church hierarchy, waiting for a day
when he could use his skills to turn or destroy that spectre.
(He is , in fact +1 on all turning attempts, +2 vs. spectres, and +4 vs.
THAT PARTICULAR spectre – because of his immence hatred to undead). He
soon will begin gathering a party of adventurers to cross the Blue Moon
Mountains again, and face his old enemy. He will not reveal the nature
of Gerizag to his fellow-party-members, nor will he warn them of the
monster awaiting them in the palace (He doesn’t want them to be scared
and run away). He just wants to beat the sh%t out of the spectre, and
he doesnt really care if he or anyone else gets hurt.

BTW: In my world, the god of war allows his clerics to use any large
cutting weapons. if your campain is differnt, adjust his weapons

Azaghal is about four feet and eight inches in height and weighs about
170 pounds. He is stocky as is usual for a dwarf. He has deep blue eyes,
and dark brown hair, and a long dark brown beard which he keeps immaculately
tidy and clean, and is of noble bearing.
Over his sparkling plate mail, he wears a bright Royal Blue surcoat, and
wears a bright red cloak/cape.
All he carries in the way of weapons are his Great 2 handed Battle Axe, and
a smaller hand axe by his side.

Outwardly he appears as a normal dwarf, but in reality, he has taken on
qualities of other races. Like a sense of humour (albeit warped), a like for
magic, and lost the dwarven dislike of the forest. He keeps these feelings to
himself mostly, and to his closest friends.
He has a great love of music and singing. He even has developed a liking for
elven verse and song. But he doesnt tell any-one.
At times, Azaghal has taken on a manner closest to that of a Human Paladin.
And thus, in some lands Azaghal is known as the Dwarven Paladin.
Azaghal has travelled widely, been on many adventures. One adventure of note
was the rescueing of Queen Yolande’s daughter, and bringing her back safely to
Celene. For which Azaghal was allowed to build a church for Moradin within the
capital, Enstad. Azaghal also was given a title for within Celene.

Bansca’s mother was a wood-elf and a ranger, his father was a druid.
Bansca is an incredibly handsome, witty and charming lad who is
currently a special envoy (and occaisional spy) for the Grand Druid. He
travels the world (teleport ring) keeping an eye on things and reporting
back regularly to his master. He is resigned to the fact that he will
never achieve greatness in the druidic hierarchy, and he has a wonderful
singing career to console him.
Bansca often pretends to be just a Bard, especially
when on a mission where being a druid is unhealthy. He is allways
cheerful, and will start singing at the slightest provocation. Among the
allies on which he can call at need is Khementh, an Old Bronze Dragon
who lives under an island off the coast of (Gwal on my world) and is
an ally of the sea-elves. ( Your normal bronze dragon with 115 hp.)
Use Bansca to involve the PC’s in druidic plots, or simply as the
unintentional starter of a barroom brawl. (Picking up the wrong girl
again. 🙂 )

Caleaxia is a half-drow outcast. Her mother was raped by a member of a drow
raiding party and was then beaten until her attacker thought her dead.
However, Caleaxia’s mother was not dead and recovered, but found herself to
be pregnant by her attacker. Caleaxia was born many months later and was lucky
enough not to have only inherited the white hair of her attacker and a swarthy
cast to her skin; similar to that of Cabritsian traders. However Caleaxia, in
accordance with the laws regarding children of rape, was taken several miles
outside the city to the Temple of the Needy; a group of priests of various
deities who devoted their lives to the help of those less fortunate.
Here Caleaxia was raised and tutored by the priests, learning to read and
write and learning of all the deities of the various pantheons.
Caleaxia grew to love all the priests as surrogate fathers, but was
especially fond of an ancient elven priest called Ev’reban. It was Ev’reban
who taught Caleaxia of the elven gods and especially of his god Rillithane
Rallathil. At 18 Caleaxia asked Ev’reban to make her an initiate of the temple
of Rallathil.
When Caleaxia was 23 Ev’reban died of old age and Caleaxia left the Temple of
the Needy and journeyed to Tulamein in search of her mother. Unfortunately,
Caleaxia’s mother had left Tulamein many years previously; driven away by the
other people of the town for allowing herself to be raped by a drow and live.
Caleaxia went in search of her mother but never found her. Instead she took
up a life of adventure, but one day plans to journey into the depths of the
world in order to make the drow pay for the rape of her mother. Caleaxia hates
the drow with all her heart.

Callumas was born in the sleepy homlet of Salbrij, where his itinerant
parents were spending the winter. Callumas is the son of a travelling elven
healer and his wife, an elven mage. As a child he was bright and happy if a
little lazy and workshy, doing what pleased him not others. He learnt his
basics in magic from his mother during his childhood.
When his mother thought he was ready she sent Callumas to Gulmarsh to learn
the proper craft from his mother’s own teacher, Tavarint. Tavarint took
Callumas in as his apprentice and began instructing him in the principles and
discipline of magic. Callumas soon began to tire of this, wanting to start
using magic rather than reading and writing about it. He also started to
frequent the inns and public houses of Gulmarsh, drinking and gambling away
what money he had. Soon Callumas was heavily in debt and was forced to trying
to steal money to pay his debts.
His activities came to the attention on the local thieves guild, but rather
than killing or maiming Callumas they offered to let him join them. The guild
had just lost one of their two mages to the gibbet and needed a replacement.
Callumas spent the next few months learning magic from Tavarint during the
day and working with the thieves guild, and picking up their skills too, at
Eventually, Callumas’s apprenticeship to Tavarint ended and he began to
work full time for the guild. However, he soon bored of this and set out
looking for adventure, fame, and more to the point, wealth.
He is still looking for the latter two.
Callumas is called Ice-eyes because of his very pale grey eyes.

History :
Casxio was born in the region of Miyarn, a small fishing village on the west
coast. His grandfather was a Ranger, and would take the young Casxio out into
the woods and show him the skills needed to carry on a family tradition.
The task fell to him as his father had been killed when he was 10, fighting
to protect the village against the giants which occasionally attacked. Upon
taking up his adventuring life when 15, he travelled the realm, but favoured
the sea, and longed to travel across it. This he did, when hired by a mage
for protection during his quest to find components for a new spell he was
working on. During the voyage, Casxio came to appreciate the work involved in
being a mage, and was interested in the working of the spells. Upon the end of
his hire, he asked the mage to take him on as his apprentice. This he did.
From that point, he stayed with the mage, and they worked on many spells
together, selling those they could and using them to help impoverished
villages. However, it was when travelling that he uncovered a plot to kill
the mage. A death warrant had been issued by a colletion of evil thieves so
the mage would stop his good work. Casxio implored one of the most powerful
thieves guilds in the area to intervene. The master thief asked a high price
for the service. The indenture of Casxio to the guild, and his agreement to
train in the arts of the thief. This he agreed to to save the life of the
mage. He initially begrudged the training, but then came to find a natural
flair, and liking for the life of a thief, which he has decided is his life
quest…to be master of his own guild.

History :
Dante’s mother was a prostitute in a small town on the Wild Coast. He never
knew who his father was, and earned his keep begging in the streets of the
town (town was Elredd). Dante had to live off the streets with his cunning
and wits. This was made easier due to his surprising strength, intelligence,
and ruthlessness. Some would even accuse him of cold blooded cruelty.
Eventually, he came to the notice of a person who had contacts with the
assassin’s guild (he was an assassin). Dante was 16 by now and had
established himself as somebody to be feared and avoided by most people who
knew of him. This person, who’s name was Gart, convinced Dante to try the
life of an assassin. Dante finally agreed, as it seemed a way to make a
living, and killing didn’t worry him at all.
Dante was brought into the local guild, and given training in the arts of
murder and deceipt. His natural ability shone through and he was recognised
as a potentially great assassin. He killed quite a few people, too, finally
reaching 3rd level.
It was at this stage that Dante was given the job of killing a priest. This
priest was a worshipper of the God of forests, but had made enough enemies to
warrant an assassin’s poisoned blade.
Dante went to the priest and made the attempt, but was set upon by ogres
before he could attack the Priest (whose name was Peyel). He was almost
killed by the ogres, and tortured horribly. He woke to find himself with the
priest he was sent to kill, who had healed him and saved his life.
For the first time in his life, Dante faced a moral dillemma. He was still
too weak to move much, so he and Peyel talked much, about life, beliefs and the
way of things. Dante, through these conversations and guilt, began to see his
past life in a different way – he realised he was truly not happy with his evil
ways, and repented his many murders. Evntually, he told Peyel the truth; what
he was, and what he had come to do. Peyel forgave him and blessed him. This
was the final straw for Dante. He decided to give up his evil ways, and leave
the assassin’s guild. Peyel offerred to help, and introduced him to the ways
and beliefs of good.
He also introduced him to a friend called Mark, a ranger, offerring Dante an
alternative life. Dante accepted, and began his life anew as a ranger.
Through all of this, he never forgot or forgave the fact that ogres had
tortured him and left him for dead.
Finally, Dante returned to his old guild to take his leave of Gart. When Gart
discovered what had happened, he went into a rage and attacked Dante. Dante
fought back and ended up killing Gart, but not before being discovered by the
rest of the guild. Dante fled and escaped the guild, and wandered until he
was picked up by Lirdium for the quest of the talisman at the Rock.


Do, Son of Noror – Sharpshooter

From: Anthony Ross

Name: Do, son of Noror Race: Hill Dwarf
Class: Fighter (Sharpshooter) Alignment: NG
Clan: Torkrest Level: 1
AC: Stud. L & Dex = 4 THACO: 20 (+3 kit & dex)
HP: 13 Age: 58

Charisma 11
Description & Notes:
Do is a perfectionalist and a grumbler, who is incredibly bright to boot.
He is usually mumbling and complaining about something, and occaisionally
that mumbling contains brilliant thought in it. Unfortunately his brother
Gilim, isn’t really bright enough to catch the brilliance, so a lot gets
missed. He is far too individualistic too fit in with his clan’s legacy of
military service, therefore he has gone out with his brother to see how the
rest of the world lies. He doesn’t believe in any religion. He is a fanatic
about keeping his equipment clean, and gets really upset at himself when he
doesn’t preform well. He hates melee combat and his concept of tactics is to
simply retreat to cover and then fire his crossbow if at all possible. He
is perfectly happy to fire into a crowd, having utter confidence in his
ability to hit what he aims for. In game terms, he has to make a wisdom
check to keep from firing anytime there is a 50% or greater chance
of hitting an ally. This roll is modified by -1 for every time he hits an
ally in that melee. In addition, if he makes three sucesfull shots in a
row, he will start making called shots until he either passes a wisdom check or
misses three straight times.

History :
I was found by monks outside the Temple of Blessed Tranquility when I was
about three. Father Dameon was always kind and good hearted and honest.
When I was found, there was a pouch hanging around my neck, with a note,
elegantly written, requesting that the monks raise me in the ways of peace.
The writer described how my father had been murdered in a battle far away
from the temple, and that the warring tribes about my homeland (which was
also left unnamed) would seek my harm. I was dressed in silk robes and had
a golden meddalion around my neck. It was inscribed with the likeness of a
woman on one side and a man on the other. Also in the pouch was 30 platinum
The letter had explained that the monks should use the money in my education.
This is exactly what my mentor, Father Dameon, did. He instructed me in all
manner of law, and all the responsiblities of the order. He was a peaceful
man, who demonstratively lead us in the ways of our God. I was taught self
defense, using the quaterstaff. He even taught me how to read and write the
common tongue. I was also instructed in the ways of healing and herbalism.
Father Dameon treated me as if I was his own son, and injected with me
with respect for all creatures. I eat no meat, and thank animals for any
produce I have from them. Yet, the greatest thing Father Dameon taught me
was respect for myself. He held for me all these 15 years the pouch and
medalion and on the anniversary of my discovery, he handed me the pouch, with
the 13 pp that it still contained, and the note and medalion.

“Eli, my son,” his sun spotted hands clasping mine,”you are now a man
I am sure.” With that he looked up and down my form. “You have been nurtured
here in the bossom of our sweet God these 15yrs. I have loved and cosseted
you as if you were my own. But now you must decide. Will you take the final
vows of our temple, or will you search out your heritage?”

“My father,” I cried,”please advise me! My heart is heavy with the burden
of the years and who I am is entrenched in this shrine. Please do not send me
off without your blessing or advice.”

“My son, I think you should seek out your mother, if she still lives. You
should find who you are, so that you may feel secure in your future. If, when
you know who you are, you wish to return, then my aging heart will love to
confirm your commitment to our God in hearing your vows of celebacy. But, if
you are a noble born, and the gratuity left you suggests this may be so, then
your destiny may lie in producing a future generation to rule wisely over some
kingdom. However, once you take these, the last commitments of this temple,
you will be bound by your word to remain here.
“It could be possible that it was the God himself that brought you here. He
may be calling you to bring peace to the troubled realm that the note tells
of. So my son, I bid you go. Take all that we have taught you and live in
peace. If our God permits, I hope to hear from you before the time that he
calls me home.”

I took some bread, and a robe, and then walked to the nearest town where I
bought supplies and asked about the woman on the medalion. I felt that she
was my mother, for when I looked at her I could see the same face staring
down on me, bending to kiss my forehead. I could feel that she was my mother
in the odd way one can sometimes feel ones memories. But where to look?

Druid Staff (20 charges)

The druid staff is a shaft of oak with a head carved in the shape
of a wild animal, usually a boar, wolf, deer, or eagle. The staff allows
the user to perform several special functions.

It can be used to summon animals of the type carved onto the staff.
At a cost of two charges, the user can send out a call. All animals of the
appropriate type within 12 miles hasten to the druid as quickly as
possible. Once they reach the druid, they act as if under an animal control
The staff can also be used to cast animal control on any animal
within sight of the staff, at a cost of 1 charge.

The staff functions as a magical weapon, with a +2 bonus to attack,
inflicting 1d6+2 points of damage on a successful hit.

The staff also functions as a python staff, with the
characteristics of the staff of the serpent as detailed in the DMG. This
includes the destruction of the staff if the snake is killed. Using the
staff as a snake costs one charge.

At a cost of two charges, the staff can be used to cast one of the
following spells:

Call Lightning Plant Growth
Dispel Magic Cure Disease
Cure Serious Speak With
Wounds Plants

Once per month, with no cost in charges, the staff can perform one
of the following greater abilities:

Wall of Fire Insect Plague
Transmute Rock to Wall of Thorns
Conjure Fire Conjure Earth
Elemental Elemental

The Staff can be recharged.

History :

Finovar, was born son of a Ranger helping with the war against the
Humaniods in Vesve forest. Shortly after his birth, his parent were killed
during a major battle defending their home from humanoids in the service of

Miraculously surviving the attack, Finovar wandered off, and was found in
the woods by Lharave, a Dryad living in the forest. She brought him up,
showing him the ways of the forest, and protecting him from the wars
within the great forest.

Taking the forest as his own, he has helped in the wars against Iuz for
many years, and has continued climbing the Druidical hierarcy. Until now
he is the Great Druid of this area. Upon hearing about the treasures of
Iggwilv, Finovar realised that he must make sure that the treasure is found
and that Iuz or his followers didnt get it.

Finovar is about five feet and nine inches tall, and weighs about one
hundred and forty pounds. Finovar is slim, attractive and looks very much
accustomed to wilderness travel. Finvar appears young, with black hair,
blue eyes and a short, black beard. He carries very little, having just
some brown robes, a hornlike sword, and a grand wooden staff. Also, he has
many pouchs that carry many herbs, and spell components.
Alongside Finovar is his companion Ben, a large Grizzly bear. He has
other animal friends, but only brought Ben. He has been trained as
a guard, and as a protector.

Not much is known about Galain. He refuses to tell anything of his
background; where he comes from, his family, or even his religion. It is
obvious, however, that he is on a mission of some sort; though he will not
admit to it.
The only thing known about Galain is his recent background. Five years ago
he arrived in Canandas looking for a place in an adventuring company. Since
then he has travelled with several groups, though never staying with one for
more then two or three “outings”. Every now and then he will disappear for
several weeks and then turn up again as if nothing untoward had occurred.
His nickname of Iron-heart is partly due to the fact that he never flees from
an enemy, and from the fact that he never makes friends with any of his fellow

(DM’s can fit any background they wish to this character to provide whatever
subplot they want to their campaigns, etc.)

Gilim, Son of Noror, Axe for Hire

From: Anthony Ross

Name: Gilim, son of Noror Race: Hill Dwarf Height: 3′ 11″
Class: Fighter (Axe for Hire) Alignment: NG Weight: 155lbs
Clan: Torkrest Level: 2 Age: 77
AC: Chain = 5 THACO: 19 (+2 to hit) HP: 14

Intelligence 07

Dexterity 10
Constitution 13 85% system shock survival, 90% ressurection survival
Charisma 12
Description & Notes
Gilim is a pragmatist, always acting in the most rational if not the most
ethical manner. As Do’s big brother he sees himself as Do’s protector,
and doesn’t give Do credit enough to be able to protect himself. This can
lead to some interesting brotherly combat. Gilim’s pragmatism is
undermined by his lack of intelligence, so what he percieves to be perfectly
rational may be flat out stupid due to some obvious oversight on his part.
However, he will not charge into combat without weighing the odds first.
When he does go, he is a master with his battleaxe. He primarily worships
Kador the Dwarven god of war although lesser gods of strength and others are
worshipped. Often says hearty things like “Dwarves always buy the first
round!” His normal morale is 14, he has infravision to 60ft, and his
birthday is Numont the 16th. His kit is the fighter’s Axe For Hire kit as
decribed in the Complete Book of Dwarves.

Game History
For many years Gilim followed his clans legacy of military training and a
career in the Dwarven army. When he learned his brother Do was going to
go explore the world, Gilim ended his gainful employment in the armed forces
and went with him, to keep him out of trouble. Do and his brother Gilim were
approached by Kae in a quiet pub in the town of Penhaligon. Kae offered
them employment as support personnel for the main party and they accepted.
After several months of adventuring with the group, Gilim had clearly
established himself as the deadliest of the lot in melee. Often defeating
the strongest of the party’s foes singlehandedly Gilim was ready to advance a
level. Before this could occur, the party embarked on a seemingly easy
mission, wherein his brother Do was slain by a poisoned bolt. As the Dwarven
priests cannot raise dead, Do was lost forever, and Gilim is in a deep
period of depression and mourning as he has failed in protecting his brother.
He knows he must return to Rockhome to tell his parents of Do’s death and
ask their mercy for his failings. He is becoming quite spiritual and
contemplative in these recent days, and could possibly become a priest
upon returning home.

Miscellaneous Information (Magical Items, Command Words, Small Maps, etc.)

History :
Only son of Fred and Martha Nile of Barovio he was disowned by his parents
when he refused to become a high priest in the church. He drifted around the
countryside doing farm work and other forms of hard labour before he met
Hasloth who became his mentor and began to train him in the fighting arts.

Godfire is now on a quest to win his way back into his family and the church
through ‘good deeds’.

Godfire of course is a huge hulking man whose need for acceptance clouds his
mind somewhat. He has the subtlety of a flouresent musical rock and the
gentleness of a sharp spike inserted up ones anus.

Description: Greymoon has brown hair, cut short with an efficient
look. He has eyes are plain brown, but can call upon a piercing
gaze that will look right through a person. He has a mid sized
nose and a strong Jaw. He looks strong but not overly muscled. He
always stands straight and tall, when possible. Greymoon does not
wear armor anymore relying on magic instead. He wears lose fitting
clothes. Greymoon usually wears a light brown shirt with a lose
collar, dark khaki or black pants, high dark boots of Elevenkind.
He often wears a special cloak of Elevenkind, which when not
keeping him invisible can either be colored black or khaki.
Greymoon does not often look imposing to other, until called to do
some heroics and then look out. He can radiate power with the best
of them, with magic items and nasty looking weapons at his command.

History: As a young child Greymoon was orphaned. His parents were
killed by Orcs and he was found by a group of Half-lings and raised
there until he was 10, when he was to big for the tunnels. He was
passed off to a group of Elves, who began his training as a
fighter. They never taught him their language, but he did learn a
bit of Lizard Man (from a nearby civilized tribe) and Red Dragon,
while studying with the other children. He was forced out of the
tribe at eighteen to make a mark for himself in the world.
Unfortunately Greymoon met up with a bad crowd, a group that
included a very evil halfling fighter-thief Massmorphius. Greymoon
was not very stable after losing his parents and then being
shuffled from one group to the next. He spent the next few years
taking his frustration out on the world. With Massmorph, he
traveled widely and first helped in clearing out of a dungeon near
the borderlands of an empire. He then was part of a group that
destroyed a plot by the Giants of the east to invade the empire.
His group did well in dispatching the giants only to find the signs
of a larger plot to disrupt the surface world. By this time
Massmorph had all but taken control of this group of adventurers
with his leadership skills, height charisma and experience.
Everyone in this group was now very powerful with many magic items.
After a long journey in the underworld, the group detected and
defeated a Drow plot to the surface world. The group did not care
much that they were doing good, only that they would not be
punished for their deeds, once they returned to the surface world.
Their adventure took them to other realms where they defeated
Lolith Demon Queen of Spiders. They captured her ship and treasure
for use in paying for further adventures.
Once they returned to the real world this group that included
Greymoon heard of a fallen star that held great power. The trip to
the great Barrier Peaks was quite an adventure. They found not an
ancient fallen star but some strange building. This strange
building had light without flame or magic. Strange monsters,
unusual weapons, and armor of great power. Full of power from
their adventures this group successfully challenged the mage of the
valley near the crash site and forced him out. They took control
of the Valley of the Mage and constructing a large wall across the
entrance to the valley.
Having become little more than a fancy bodyguard, Greymoon
became disillusioned with his life and began to wander the world on
his own. He has had enough of intrigue between nations and
controlling small armies. He was no longer the angry youth of the
past. He became more stable, but with many enemies stalking him he
has never had a chance to rest. He may at any time be called back
to the service of Massmorphius who is now very close to being a
demi-power. Which can be good since Massmorphius will lend
Greymoon his most powerful weapon on request. This magical
footman’s mace has been enchanted with mighty magics.
Greymoon was most recently seen in the Sojourners Inn, but
most of the time he will be found wandering the world looking for
a little adventure and hopefully some inner peace.

History :

Before adventuring Career…
Bernard Hallonan, or Grimm as he now calls himself, is the son of a
moderately wealthy merchant who traded in wines, the second of four brothers.
His aptitude for magical study was recognised early and an entry exam (plus a
suitable bribe) assured him a place in the academy of magic. During his first
few months, however, an accident during an attempted summoning caused a large
explosion and a momentary extraplanar rift which only he is known to have
survived. This was due to the influence of a demon alerted when the rift
opened, and who saw the potential for mischief in the apprentice. Dazed and
unnoticed in the confusion, Bernard wandered right out of the city and into
the forest, and was presumed dead (or worse) by the academy authorities.
Wandering in the wilderness, his mind somewhat unhinged by the incident,
Bernard was contacted by the demon for the first time. Awed by the presence
of the being and the promises of great power it offered, he accepted the
tutelage and proceeded to become a warlock skilled in the art of necromancy.
It didn’t take long, though, before he began to rebell against the demands
placed upon him, and the constant intrusion into his thoughts and actions
made by the fiend. Eventually he broke free of its direct influence, but is
still harrassed by the demon’s attempts to regain control of its “investment”.
He took with him magical knowledge, a figurine of wonderous
power and a ring of the ram, all bribes by the demon to retain his confidence
and devotion.
Lost in the forest with no skills to protect himself, Bernard would
probably starved to death if he had not stumble across a log cabin, the final
resting place of a retired adventuring thief (one of the few who die
peacefully). Although the place had already been emptied by enterprising
vandals, he managed to find a ring on the corpse which proved to be a ring of
sustenance and a silver necklace which he later sold for what little money he
has now and his few possesions. It was obvious to him that he had nowhere
near as many qualms about dealing with the dead than the earlier thieves had,
but then again, that’s what being a necromancer is all about…
The present day…
Grimm’s streak of luck continues to preserve him from his own belief in
immortality, although he has become a little bit more world wary. He tries
now to keep a good stock of defensive spells (just in case) and sometimes has
mood swings into the paranoid that can mean disaster for his travelling
companions. His speciality combined with his uncooperative attitude has
earned some attention from various authorities, though most are prepared to
dismiss him as a minimal threat to society. Indeed, his hunts for undead have
earned him occasional praise, as he restores the balance against those who
would cheat death – and any who stand in his way.

Grimm is more than a little stressed by the life he has led so far, in
fact he’s bordering on crazy. Surviving the accident, the demon and wandering
lost in the wilderness has led him to think that he may be destined never o
die. Combined with his learnings in necromancy and general society’s
rejection of him, he is fast heading toward the belief that he is death
incarnate, an elemental force not to be denied, which is reflected by the
name he now choses to be known by. His monthly visits by the demon tend to
contradict this, which gives him all the more reason to hate it. It is ironic
that he would give anything to be rid of the true source of his power, and
just about the only thing at the moment that prevents him from become a
raving nutcase. He has little memory of his family, and has no desire to
associate with them again.

Lithe and muscular of build, Hnaef has the archtypical Northern

joker, most strangers are more than a bit put off by his less than civilized
appearance. With his dog Holgar and a halting command of the common tounge,
Hnaef is generally assumed to be much more dangerous than he actually is.
Although he posseses all the skills and talents nessecarry to sucess in
combat, Hanef’s companions learn quickly that he is smitten with ill luck
in combat and should not be counted upon.

Born to Bercilak and Margan Scylding (who died giving birth) of
the Ozerfold clan on their steading, in the Soderfjord Jarldoms in the
Northern Reaches. There is minimal agriculture and food sources are
mostly derived from hunting and trade, in your region. Berilak was greatly
affected by the loss of his wife and spent much time away from the stead on
long hunting trips in the surrounding mountains and hills. While his
father was away, Hnaef was under the care of his Uncle Ofeig, and elder brother
Sven. They taught you to wield the longsword, as well as train the
wolf-dogs that are used as guards on the steading. Eventually his father
began to take him on the hunting trips, where Hnaef’s ranger skills were
acquired. At the age of 19 he obtained the permission of Vandrad Horiks
on, his clan head, and set forth by ship from Whiteheart, to explore the

Beliefs instilled in upbringing
% Loyalty lies with family, clan and friends, and anyone who does not
defend their honor is a coward.
% Hospitality and generosity are to be valued and respected.
% Wealth in itself is not a virtue.
% Courage is honorable, it is dishonorable to whine or complain.
% The gods determine fate, and wit and humor in bad times is to be valued.
% Forgiveness is a sign of weakness.
% Long discussions are pointless and should be avoided at all costs.
% One’s word is binding, but to mislead by clever speech or omission (not
lies) is neither dishonest or immoral.
% Exaggeration of ones deeds is acceptable to a point.
% Merchants, thieves and especially wizards are to be accorded little
respect as they are sneaky, evil and dangerous, yet timid in combat.
% Priestly magics are acceptable and virtous.
% Nature is to be respected, revered and protected, and must be allowed to
coexist with other life.

Game History
Hnaef is most famous for his utter failure as a combat machine, to
the frequent disappointment and frustration of his player. He never did
anything truly heroic (partially because his player was often absent) and
never really lived up to his ancestry and training.

Miscellaneous Information (Magical Items, Command Words, Small Maps, etc.)
Bolt of Tracking
Wooden Knife
Sword +2, Idrenal
elven chain +3

Sword +1, Idrenal

Idrenal is a specially made +1 shortsword. In the hands of a thief, it
becomes +2. Furthermore, when Idrenal is used for a backstab attack, it
advances the thief an additional step of multiplier (i.e., x3 instead of
x2, etc.) normal to their level.


Wooden Knife

It is magical knife of elven design made of magically hardened wood.
It will disregard all inorganic armor when it is
used to hit. It will pass through plate mail, chain, any metallic armor
(but without causing the armor any damage either).
Upon the thiefs command, once per day the knife can also cause an
additional 1d6+4 magical damage to the target, whether thrown or used
in melee.

Bolt of Tracking

An enchanted Bolt. No bonuses to hit or damage but if fired at a target
& missess, instead of falling to the ground, it stays aloft & turns around
to try again (NOTE: it could be a back attack this time). This continues
until either a successful hit is made or d4 tries have been attempted (not
counting the initial to hit roll for firing the bolt).The bolt locks on
one target (whether dead or alive). If a 1 is rolled on a to hit roll, a
mis-lock occurs & the person who fired the bolt is now the acquired
target. Other than turning around, this bolt does not avoid obstacles.
As such, hitting a solid object will stop the bolt.

Spells in Book (* signifies spell memorised)
1st Level : Read magic, Detect magic, Magic Missile*, Alarm, Shield,
Wall of Fog, Tenser’s floating disk, Fire Burst, chromatic

History :
As a student at school, he persevered the fine art of magic
especially those in the way of invoker spells, but also learning the
best form of defense is offense. An only child, he was brought up as
little spoilt as he comes from a fairly rich family.
He is furthering his career and powers to one day return and
confront his one time best friend but now enemy ands show he was not
brought up like a coward.

Your background is this : Leaving the school of magic when you had
graduated from a novice to a first level mage, you decided to set out on your
own and make your fortune, and leave your mark on the world. You lived in the
Free City of Greyhawk, with wealthy parents, who were quite angry and
disapointed that you had left the security and prestige ofthe school of magic.
You won’t be able to expect much help from them…
Before anybody new of your immanent departure from the school, you
experienced your first betrayal. Jealous of your rise to power and eager for
your position in the school, your best friend, a novice named Jehovic, tried
to have you killed. He bungled the attempt, and fled into the slums. You
would have pursued him and avenged yourself, but you had made arrangements to
travel with a caravan heading south east, which was leaving the following
morning. Saying goodbye to those you knew, you joined the van and left the
safety and comfort of Greyhawk.
You soon became bored with the caravan, nothing exciting occured at
all, so when the van stopped at a mansion in the midle of the woods, you put
the word around the mansion servants that you were looking for adventure. As
luck would have it, an adventuring party was staying in the Manor at this very
moment, and were planning to set off to the Hold of the Sea Princes in the
morning. To quickly gained an audience wit hthe master of the manor, a chap
named Lirdrium Arkayz, and asked him if he could pass on the message to the
adventurers that you wished to join them. It appears they have agreed, and a
servant has just informed you that you are being waited on at the front gates.

Sir Pellaeus was born the son of a well off merchant in a city called
Jalensin in the heartlands of Cytharin. At the age of 14 he left his family
and joined the temple of Guldur as an initiate. At age 16 he joined the
militant arm of the temple, initially to train as a temple guard. However,
it was noticed by his tutors that Pellaeus had both honesty and virtue as
well as a natural flair for the sword.
He was thus apprenticed to Sir Tinandis, a Knight of Guldur, who was to
instruct Pellaeus in the codes of honour, law, combat, and ettiquette, as
well as holy scripture. Sir Tinandis and Pellaeus rode upon many missions for
the church, and never once did Pellaeus disgrace himself or his church.
At the age of 21, Pellaeus was formally knighted and entered into the ranks
of the Knights of Guldur.
Since that time he has travelled in several adventuring companies, always
fighting for the poor and unjustly treated and spreading the word of Guldur
where it would be heard by those who would listen.

color spray, feather fall, floating disc and wall of fog)

APPEARANCE: Standing 6’11″(1.81), at weight of 74 kg(dunno how much it’s
in lbs.), you may say Quentin has a light body frame. His brown hair
(he keeps it long – up to his shoulders ) nicely underlines the tanned
color of his skin, and suits his blue eyes well. He is just FILTHY HANDSOME.

Every teen-aged-girl wet dream. Everywhere he goes, they just swarm around
him. There’s nothing he can do about it. His true and only love, however
(besides women, other people’s pockets, and music) is STORIES. He can sit
in a tavern for hours, telling old travel and war tales (in a very charming
and interesting way). Although he presents all of them as personal
experiences, this is (as you may have guessed) false most of the time.
The audiences don’t mind, as long as the tales are entertaining. He also
likes to listen to other people stories (so he can tell them later). He’s
what you might call a social chameleon. His greatest weakness, however, is
his almost childish naiveness (just check his low WIS). He is utterly and
completely gullible, and is likely to be used by the simplest con-men.
He is also notorious for participating in a theft or other illegal act,
and then just going around telling his friends (and others) about it.
He just likes socializing, no matter the cost. Until now, he managed to
stay out of jail and other troubles, partly because he’s so charming,
and partly just by shear luck.

We still haven't proceded to enter the temple itself. Background: Rumpeltstiltskin was born on the 30th of November 16 years ago. Shortly after his birth, his father died a tragic death, leaving him in the care of his big sister, Virga, who later turned out a priest of Torm. Not very typical for a Torm follower, Virga was a real bitch of a half-breed (charisma of 6). We do share the same mother, who is also a bitch - literally, although her father is the mayor of Vlac - an elf. Nothing really interresting happened to Rumpeltstiltskin during his childhood, apart from being one of the great wizard, Kalkaryn's, students. Kalkaryn is not really all that smart, but Rumpy thinks he is. Rumpeltstiltskin was of course very tired of the way his mother behaved, so he along with his sister and some friends headed off to Homlet to meet Rumpy's good childhood friend (yes, he has some friends) Roger, a bard, to seek out fame and fortune....... ============================================================================== S'questr'n Yll'vajin - Fighter/Cleric/Mage ========================================== Name: S'questr'n Yll'vajin Edition: 2nd Class: F/C/M Level: 9/9/10 Age: 464 Eyes: Red Race: Drow elf Alignment: CE Height: 4' 9" Hair: White Deity: Lolth Pantheon: Elven (?)

Equipment ========= Unspecified, but includes flash grenades, smoke grenades, unholy water, spider silk rope, 20 bolts for hand crossbow, sleeping poison for bolts, and 3 javelins (similarly poisoned). Background ========== S'questr'n was born to one of the minor noble houses of Menzoberranzan, but was forced to leave or be killed at an early age. Similar to many of her kind born to a noble family she was trained in the arts of combat, magic, and religion. Unlike many of her kind she did not choose a single profession once she'd completed her basic training; instead S'questr'n decided to continue to practice all three arts. This incited the wrath of the high council and she was ordered to either choose or die. S'questr'n instead decided to flee. She travelled from drow city to drow city, learning from masters of each art along the way. Eventually, S'questr'n wondered into the new outpost city of Aluth-Kyorl. She was tired of wandering and decided to settle there and continue her studies. The council of the city was fairly inexperienced and its leader completely out of her depth. After many botched raids and failed "crops" the city began to run short of food. S'questr'n saw this as a chance to seize power and using her arts to the full gain entrance to the council chamber. The victory was surprisingly easy as many of the council decided to settle old scores whilst S'questr'n fought their leader and her leftenants. S'questr'n then went on to kill those that remained of the council. Once the battle was over S'questr'n declared herself leader of the council and appointed a new council of nobles. S'questr'n has survived many attempted coups and has put each down with such easy ruthlessness that none have been attempted for many years. ============================================================================== Sanas Dengrill - Fighter ======================== Name: Sanas Dengrill Edition: 1st Class: Fighter Level: 4 Age: 18 Eyes: Brown Race: half-elf Alignment: Neutral Good Height: 5' 6" Hair: Black Deity: Corellan Pantheon: Elven Weight: 135 lbs Place of origin: Kinsholm Sex: Male STR 18/54 hit adj +2, dam adj +3, open doors 1-4, bend bars 25% INT 11 add lang 2 WIS 13 DEX 15 defence adj -1 CON 17 hit point adj +3, sys shock 97%, res surv 98% CHA 15 max henchman 7, loyalty base +15%, react adj +15% Weapon Profs Armour ============ ====== Long sword Armour worn = Plate mail Actual AC = 0 Dagger AC base = 2 Rear AC = 3 Long bow Magic adj = +1 (shield) Surprised AC = 1 Short sword Dex adj = -1 Shieldless AC = 2 Shield = medium (+1) Hit points ========== Hit die type = d10 Con bonus = +3 Hit points = 36 Hit points per level = 7/4/6/7/ Combat ====== Thac0 = 18 Weapon in hand: Long sword Saving throws ============= base save bonuses modified save Poison/paralyzation 13 -- 13 Petrif/polymorph 14 -- 14 Rod/staff/wand 15 -- 15 Breath weapon 16 -- 16 Spells 16 -- 16 Magical items Money ============= ===== Long sword +1 Copper pieces = 14 Shield +1 Silver pieces = 11 ring of feather fall Gold pieces = 45 7 +1 arrows Electrum pieces = none potion of heroism Platinum pieces = none Gems = none Jewelry = none Other = none Equipment ========= High boots Parchment (4 sheets) 20 days iron rations Grey cloak Bottle of ink Water flask (1 pint) Grey tabard Quill pen (4 off) Sharpening stone Backpack Rope (50 ft) Flasks of oil (2 off) Quiver Grapnel Tinder box Bowcase Iron spikes (15 off) 20 arrows Hammer Background ========== Sanas was born in Kinsholm, a small village near one of the forests of the wood elves and one of the few places of man that they visit. Sanas was born of an elven father and a human mother. His father left his mother once he found she was pregnant. His mother died after his birth. Sanas was raised by his uncle, who ran the inn in Kinsholm. His childhood years were not that happy. His uncle blamed him for the death of his mother and treated more as a servant than as his nephew. The people of the village hated him for being a half-breed and a bastard, and the children of the village bullied him and ridiculed him because of his elven looks. At the age of 15 Sanas fled Kinsholm in search of his father, whether for vengeance or recognition no-one knew. With him Sanas took his maternal grandfather's sword and shield; which he still carries today. Sanas journeyed into the forest and was promptly captured by the elves ,who believed him to be either thief or spy, and were about to kill him when he told them of his quest for his father. Sanas was taken to one of the elven tree-villages, where he was put into the custody of his father's family. They told him of how his father had gone on a trading mission to one of the border cities and had not come back; that had been two years ago. His father's family believed his father to be dead and urged Sanas to give up his search. Sanas would not and left the forest two weeks later heading for the city of Candanus. That was three years ago and Sanas's search for his father has lead him all over the Kingdoms, but he knows his father is at least alive. ============================================================================== Sethi – Thief

1st Level : Read Magic , Detect Undead, Chill Touch*, Corpse Visage,
Detect magic, Cantrip, Magic Missile*, Wizard Mark

History :

I was born in Veluna, to moderately wealthy parents. (bottom of the upper
class), and grew up there. I had no other siblings. I was a solitary child,
never having any friends or ever associating with the other kids at all, I
always got on better with older people, but preferred solitude. I was always
fascinated by magic, and when I was old enough, attended a magic school in
Grayhawk City. It was there that I discovered Necromancy, and at the first
possible chance, left the school to become the apprentice of a Necromancer
living outside of Greyhawk. (ie .. in the wilderness outside Greyhawk, far
enough away to be a typical Necromancer’s solitary dwelling.) My mentor wasn’t
overly kind, but still wasn’t overly cruel. He made me earn my keep, but
didn’t overwork me. Eventually, when I became skilled enough in my Necromancy,
I left my mentor, and started adventuring.


Telieq is a VERY controlled person. He exhibits NO show of emotion at all,
though this doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have emotions. As with most
Necromancers, he is withdrawn, but not humourless, however rarely shows his
sense of humour because of his high value of self control. Because of his
great control, Telieq doesn’t suffer from the bouts of depression that so
many Necromancers are prone to. As with most Necromancers, Telieq prefers to
be alone, and speaks very little. Telieq dislikes having to trust and/or rely
on other people, he likes to be as self sufficient as possible.

From: Robert Andrew

Name : Tyrus Wolfenbane
Occupation : Assasains Guild Contact Man. Tyrus is one of those responsible
for organising meetings and “hits” for the Assasain’s guild in freehold. As
such he commands a large salary and several personal guards.
Description : Tyrus is a well built man in his late 30’s, standing around 6′
tall he wears a dark beard and long black, braided hair. Often when meeting
with “contacts”, he wears a dark brown leather cloak, large balck boots and
a dark blue or green brigga. His weapon of choice is a hand crossbow with
poison tipped bolts. Tyrus is a strong willed man, used to giving orders
(from several years in the Ducal Guard). He has an abrasive personality that
irritates many people, many of whom are forced to put up with it to continue
hiring the Guild. Tyrus is one of the few contact men who prefer meeting
contacts in the street, often meeting in a crowded market with his guardsmen
all around him (but unseen to the contact).

History :
Uriah was born on the island of Markesh. His parents Elahb and Amaryiah were
merchants of high standing. An old drifter came through the town and took a
room at the local inn. At night, around the communal fire he took to telling
stories of far away lands, and adventures he had had in his youth. These
stories stirred Uriah into asking the drifter, by the name of Heape, if he
could accompany him when he left the village. The old man replied that he
could. Two weeks later Uriah and Heape left the village. Heape died one year
later, after passing on his starting knowledge of the fighting, healing and
arcane arts which he had picked up during his journeys. Uriah, whose last
name was originally Tahr, took the old mans name in honour of his teachings.
He also took the two handed sword which the old man always carried with him,
and that he had bequithed to Uriah. Uriah now carries on the old mans dream
of seeing as much as the world has to offer.

Appearance: Small tattoo of dragon on left upper chest, scar from friends
mistress on right side of groin, long dark hair and olive skin.
Quirks: Prefers the two handed sword in battle, but, if the need arises, will
fight with two handed with long and short sword .

Uriah is an outgoing chap. He enjoys the company of friends. In his village
he had many good friends. However, due to the closeness of family and friends,
he also had those that envied him, and hated him because of this. One such
man was Chiross. Chiross and his clan were part of the heirarchy of the
village. However, they felt that the people were giving the leadership, and
their alliances to the Tahr clan. Trying to disrupt this state of affairs,
Chiross sent his daughter Uma to first seduce Uriahs best friend, and then
Uriah himself, in an attempt to split them up, and discredit Uriah’s family.

However, Chiross’s son Jiren was not as evil as the rest of his family, and
truly wanted the village to be at peace, no matter who was in power. So he
warned both Uriah and his friend Erale. The lads decided to have a bit of fun
with Uma. When she did come to seduce Uriah, he said nothing to her. After
they had had sex, she told Uriah that she would leave Erale for him, but Erale
would have to be “gotten rid of”. Uriah told her in no uncertain terms that
he knew of her plan, and that she was as exciting to him as a dry corpse. In
her rage, she bit him on the side of the groin, leaving him with a permanent
scar. Uriah made the plan known to the village, and Chiross and his family
were publicly disgraced.

The Tahr clan was asked to take power in the village. This they accepted.
Uriah, not wishing this for himself (but happy for his family), took the
option of leaving with Heape when the opportunity presented itself. Jiren
stayed with the Tahr clan, and last Uriah heard, he had been adopted by them.

As for Chiross and his clan (including wife, daughter and other sons), Uriah
has not heard of them since the incident.

The tattoo he earned while travelling with Heape. “The Dragons” are a misfit
clan of fighter/clerics who wander the world in search of adventure. Uriah
saved the leaders son Maxx, and was given honarary status within the band,
which is signified by the tattoo.

Dungeons and Dragons Expert Hirelings Cost Table

Dungeons and Dragons Expert Hirelings Cost Table

From Dragon Magazine, issue 184 is this awesome table giving costs to add a variety of hirelings to your Dungeon and Dragon Games. This was made for Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, or Second Edition by today’s numbering. But it should still be fairly accurate for newer editions, or even other fantasy game systems.

NWPs, or “Non-Weapon Proficiencies,” were a way to add non-combat skill checks to AD&D. Just use a relevant skill from your preferred system.

Dungeons and Dragons Expert Hirelings Table

And for explanation of the professions in the table they included this blurb below:

Many of these expert NPCs must possess nonweapon proficiencies to perform their duties. Suggested proficiencies are listed with each entry. Also, the Reading/Writing skill is common at many courts; assume that these hirelings have that skill if their duties require any sort of record keeping or any of the “business” of running a court.

Also, for any of the occupations here that involve apprentices, lackeys, etc., the mastersÂ’ relevant ability should be higher than those of his assistants to reflect his expertise (although prodigies are always possible).

Expert Hireling NPC Types

Accountant: An accountant is a specialist scribe who does calculations for business and bookkeeping purposes. Any business enterprise requires an accountant. Very large holdings or departments require a team of accountants under a chief accountant, who receives double pay. All accountants possess the Reading/Writing nonweapon proficiency (NWP) and also have some skill at mathematics (what we consider basic math— no algebra, geometry, etc.).
Almoner: An almoner supervises the disbursement of gifts to charities and the poor. Almoners handle all the clerics, charity-collectors, beggars, mendicants, cranks, and reformers seeking money and favors who often approach wealthy characters. Almoners, like accountants, have skill at mathematics.

Artist: Artists are skilled in the production of fine statues, busts, murals, or paintings. A work of art takes from a few days to many weeks to create. A huge sculpture or decoration of a palace can take years to complete. A few artists are masters who can produce a masterpiece that will bring acclaim to the artist and his patron. Artists will possess the Artistic Ability NWP.

Astrologer/Soothsayer: Astrologers, soothsayers, diviners, and fortune tellers are common in many rulersÂ’courts. In a magical universe, it is possible to make useful predictions on occasion. The accuracy of a prediction depends on the expertise of the astrologer; some may be charlatans. Fortunes are often given in cryptic forms, and are liable to be misinterpreted. These NPCs possess the Astrology NWP.

Attorney/lawyer: In urban areas, citizens may need legal advice about taxes, debts, rights, property, or inheritance. Rulers will need expert information on the cases brought before them. Lawyers can be kept on retainer and are also paid a daily fee while preparing or arguing a case in court. If a PC gains a sum of money from legal action, the lawyer will take 30-50%. Some lawyers are famous (5%), charging 5 to 10 times the normal fee, but can increase the chance of a favorable verdict at the DMsÂ’ option. Attorneys all have knowledge of local laws and customs (treat as the Religion NWP, except the relevant ability is intelligence and it grants legal, rather than religious, information).

Bard/Storyteller/Minstrel: Every court needs a talented bard who can tell stories or sing and play music. History, legends, and poetry are passed down through the verses of bards, who are also the court composers. An NPC of this type may (if not a member of the bard adventuring class) exhibit the Artistic Ability, Musical Instrument, or Singing NWPs. Bards may also have some knowledge of history or languages.

Chamberlain: A chamberlain is the official in charge of a noblesÂ’ household. The chief butler and master of the wardrobe report to him. Very large households require several chamberlains. Chamberlains will certainly make use of the Etiquette NWP and perhaps have the Heraldry skill as well.

Champion: A champion is a fighter who accepts challenges on behalf of kings or rulers who cannot fight themselves, or for mages and other characters who cannot engage in personal combat with fighters. Champions expect to be well rewarded after each victory. Create and equip an appropriate warrior NPC for this role.

Chaplain: Every estate or castle should have a chapel and chaplain for the religious needs of its inhabitants. Adventuring clerics usually dontÂ’ have the time for such work, so an NPC cleric can be hired, as long as he gets the usual salary, upkeep, fees, tithes, assistants, and so on. Chaplains will possess the Religion NWP, and some may also have knowledge of history, languages, or areas of special interest to their deity.

Cook: A lords refinement is often judged by the excellence of his dinner table. A cook requires at least one lackey (apprentice) to assist him. Cooks have the Cooking NWP.

Court Announcer: The court announcer regulates daily business at a noblesÂ’ court. He announces visitors, observes protocol, schedules appointments, supervises audiences, and keeps his eye on guests. Announcers will have both the Etiquette and Heraldry NWPs.

Dance Master: Dancing is a skill that is expected of every well-bred aristocrat. The dance master instructs the pages and damsels of the household in the rudiments of dancing and also teaches new dances to the court. Such instructors possess the Dancing NWP.

Doctor/Physician: Doctors are skilled in the treatment of wounds and disease. Although clerics in the AD&D game perform the functions of doctors, DMs could have “healers” who cure wounds and diseases with the Healing, and possibly the Herbalism, NWPs.

Entertainers: Entertainers include actors, mimes, jugglers, acrobats, wrestlers, puppeteers, dancers, knife-throwers, animal acts, etc. Entertainment is expected at important social gatherings. Performers can be hired individually or in teams of 2-16. When a company has six or more members, there is a 25% surcharge to pay for the impresario, drivers, and lackeys. Famous troupes of entertainers fetch 2-4 times normal prices. Most troupes should have members who exhibit many of the following skills: Dancing, Singing, Musical Instrument, Juggling, Jumping, Tightrope Walking, and Ventriloquism.

Equerry/Stable Master: An equerry is an official in charge of a stable. He oversees the horse trainers and grooms, buys and sells horses, buys fodder, and maintains the stable. An equerry is needed if a stable has 30 or more horses. Such an NPC will possess the Animal Training and Animal Handling NWPs for horses (or whatever mount is most common in the campaign).

Falconer: A falconer specializes in the care of falcons and hawks. One falconer can care for four birds. For every two additional birds, he requires a lackey. Falconers will have the Animal Handling and Animal Training NWPs appropriate to the type of birds used.
Gatekeeper/porter/doorwarden: The gatekeeper greets visitors, makes arrangements for their stay, and maintains the gates and drawbridges in good operating conditions. Such an NPC will have the Heraldry NWP and may possess some knowledge of drawbridges, gears, etc. (Engineering NWP).

Gentlemen- or lady-in-waiting: Gentlemen- and ladies-in-waiting are persons of noble birth who serve as assistants, companions, and bodyguards to a ruler. A minor noble might have 1-3 gentlemen-in-waiting; a king, up to 50. Such NPCs will possess a wide variety of NWPs, but Etiquette is mandatory.

Herald: Heralds are skilled in the usages of heraldry, diplomacy, and chivalry, and hence possess the Heraldry NWP. There is often a hierarchy of apprentices (pursuivants), heralds, and chief heralds at larger courts. Chief heralds receive five times normal pay and pursuivants earn one-half that of a herald.

Horse or Animal trainer: Animal trainers are skilled in the care, training, and breeding of animals. Normal training takes three months, with the trainer able to handle up to six animals. War training requires an additional three months, with three animals being the limit that can be trained at once. One horse trainer is needed to care for every 40 horses in a stable.

Hunting Master/Huntsmen/Houndsmen: A hunting master is necessary to make arrangements for and to lead a hunt. The hunting master supervises the huntsmen, all of whom have the Hunting NWP. Houndsmen exhibit Animal Training and Animal Handling skills for hunting dogs. Other common NWPs these NPCs could possess are Direction Sense, Fire-Building, Fishing, Riding Land-Based, Set Snares, Animal Lore, Survival, Tracking, or Weather Sense.

Jester: Jesters provide entertainment and keep themselves well informed of court gossip. They can give advice and defuse possibly hostile situations through humor. Jesters may also be skilled in magic-use and thieving. Jesters should have NWPs similar to those listed under “Entertainers.”

Librarian: A librarian is needed to organize and care for any large collection of books and scrolls. Librarians can maintain written records; read languages; identify authors, handwriting, dates and places of publication; and repair and restore damaged books. In addition to the Reading/ Writing NWP, librarians are often sagelike storehouses of information about history and languages.

Maid/Butler/Servants/Lackeys: Maids and butlers clean and care for buildings. A maid is needed for every eight apartments, and a butler for each large hall. The chief butler (major-domo) works with the chamberlain, head chef, steward, and master of the wardrobe to assure the smooth functioning of the household. These servants should have the Etiquette NWP.
Every castle requires a barber, who often doubles as a surgeon. Such an NPC may possess the Healing or Herbalism NWPs. Noblewomen may need a hair-dresser and seamstress, the latter of whom should possess the Seamstress/ Tailor NWP. Each carriage must have four coachmen, and a sedan chair requires four to eight footmen. Grooms are necessary to care for each one to four horses, and formal gardens require a gardener who may possess the Agriculture or Herbalism NWPs. The servant/lackey category also includes cupbearers, servers, chamber-valets, ushers, messengers, laundry women, etc. These types generally display few talents, though exceptions to the rule are always possible.

Master/Mistress of the Wardrobe: The master or mistress of the wardrobe is responsible for the care of a noblesÂ’ clothing and private chambers. He or she also disburse the lords private funds for personal and miscellaneous expenses. Etiquette is an important skill for these NPCs, as is some skill at math.

Musicians: Musicians include flute players, lutists, drummers, horn-players, singers, bagpipers, harpers, fiddlers, etc. They are needed for balls, dances, masques, and the like. Musicians usually perform in groups of four to 12 members. If there are more than six musicians, they will be led by a music master who receives double pay. Five percent of musicians are virtuosos who perform alone and receive 10 times the normal pay. All musicians have the Musical Instrument NWP, possibly with multiple instruments (which would require multiple proficiency slots).

Nurse: Children of noble families are cared for by a nurse. Each nurse may look after up to four children.

Oratar/Rhetorician: Orators are professional speech makers. They may be hired to make speeches on a charactersÂ’ behalf, or may be hired on a monthly basis to teach oratorical skill. Each month a character takes oratory lessons (with several lessons a week), he receives a cumulative chance equal to his intelligence to receive Oratory skill, if he has a nonweapon proficiency slot available. Oratory skill gives a +20% reaction adjustment when making speeches in noncombat situations to those who can understand what the orator is saying.

Page/Squire: Leading noblemen or rulers often have dozens of pages and squires, as their vassals are eager to send their sons to be educated and learn chivalric skills. They serve as messengers, aides, and servants to lords and ladies, and they form a guard of honor. Pages are usually adolescents with little combat skill; squires are older and may be 1st-level warriors. Both pages and squires may also have some Riding, Heraldry, or Tailoring skill (for sewing torn tabards, etc.).

Poet Laureate/Court Chronicler/Writer: A poet composes verses for any subject or occasion, and a court chronicler records events and supervises the archives. They may be sent as envoys because of their knowledge of etiquette and diplomacy. All writers must possess the Modern Languages and the Reading/Writing NWPs; some may be members of the bard class.

Scholar/Professor/Philosopher: Scholars are specialized men or women of learning. They may answer questions as sages in one field with a -2 penalty that is cumulative with any other penalties, but they require only half the upkeep and pay of sages. Select appropriate fields of study for such NPCs, according to your campaignsÂ’ background.

Scribe/Clerk: Scribes maintain records, copy documents, and take dictation. For every 100 soldiers in a fortress, one scribe will be required to assist the officers in making muster lists, payrolls, inventories, and in writing orders. Scribes might be needed to assist the seneschal, chamberlain, equerry, librarian, almoner, secretary, attorney, scholar, master of the wardrobe, etc. All scribes exhibit the Reading/Writing NWP.

Secretary: A secretary is a type of scribe who personally assists a ruler or noble in the day-to-day operations of his domain. The secretary is knowledgeable in administration, screens visitors, makes appointments, handles documents, channels communications, and supervises other clerks. The Reading/Writing NWP is important for this NPC, as is the Etiquette NWP and familiarity (knowledge) of the rulersÂ’ interests, hobbies, etc.

Steward/Seneschal: A steward or seneschal is needed for every castle, business, estate, fief, or office belonging to a character that he does not personally supervise. Very large estates or fiefs will require several stewards, headed by a grand seneschal or chief steward. Stewards need a variety of skills, although a highly skilled staff is a great boon as well.

Teacher/Tutor: A teacher instructs children between the ages of six and 16. A teacher may have up to 12 students in a class. Teachers should have at least some of the following NWPs (though others are possible): Reading/Writing, Local History, Ancient History, Modern Languages, Ancient Languages, and Math.

Trumpeters/Drummers/Standard Bearers: Trumpeters and drummers are needed to play marches and fanfares at parades, tournaments, speeches, coronations, executions, and funerals. They also make signals in battles. Musical Instrument skill is essential.

A standard bearer is a soldier, usually a sergeant, who carries a lords insignia into battle to rally soldiers. Carrying a standard into battle requires no special skills, but an unusually large amount of bravery is helpful.

Followers, DND Style

Followers, DND Style

One of the biggest boons in AD&D to player characters, were the followers. By 7th through 9th level most Classes started gaining followers. The rules for followers were found in the AD&D Dungeon Master Guide, pg.16. A group of Player Characters could amass an army pretty quickly. There is even a random followers generator over at deadskexies, based off this chart.

Dragon Magazine had several sets of flavor rules on attracting followers for almost every class. Many of the article had a series of tables to roll on to figure out what types, level, and number of followers a player character could have. These were meant to supplement the rules in the Dungeon Master’s Guide and add a bit more flavor to games.

If you’d like to re-read some of those articles, and still have your old copies of Dragon Magazine, check out the following issues.
Dragon #92 – The more, the merrier (Clerics)
Dragon #99 – Tables and Tables of Troops (Fighters)
Dragon #103 – More range for rangers (Rangers)
Dragon #113 – Clout for Clerics (Clerics)
Dragon #178 – Follow the Leader (Paladins)
Dragon #219 – Pirate Crews and Retinues (Fighter subclasses)
Dragon #246 – A Few Good Henchmen (List of NPCs to use as Henchmen)

A savvy DM could also use these tables to quickly generate followers for NPCs. The table from Dragon #219 “Barbarian” could generate a tribe of primitives for instance. Or the Pirate table could be used to crew a ship from an actual Pirate ship to a Merchantman. (Click here for Random Gangs and Guilds generators)

Unfortunately, the concept of followers was moved from an automatic boon to characters at a certain level, to a Feat in DND 3.x. The 3.5 Dungeon Master’s Manual has this feat on pg 106, and it is also in the SRD. I have yet to see a Player ever take this feat though.

While the concept of followers above it heavily influenced by Dungeons and Dragons, it can be easily transferred to other game systems, and not just fantasy ones. Nor does it have to be a virtual army of NPCs following the Player Characters along. It could just as easily be a single follower or henchman that complements the Player’s Class.

For instance, an Police Officer could have a rookie partner assigned to them. A Solider could advance in rank and have a batman. An Indiana Jones type character could have an especially bright student as a follower. A Superhero could have a sidekick with complimentary powers. The possibilities are endless.

The biggest problem with followers though is that it’s one more NPC for the GM to keep track of. The best way to handle this is offload the work of tracking stats and such to the Player, while the characters motives are still controlled by the GM. This allows the GM to not worry about their stats, but gives them an additional way move plot points along, or even introduce new ones as needed.

Good examples of such are that the Follower could have a deep dark secret that is coming back to haunt them. They could have a stroke of intuition, or luck, at just the right moment in time that is the key to solving the puzzle. They can add a precious bit of fire power in battles, or be used to cause a distraction at a critical moment.

The usefulness of followers in Role Playing games should not be over looked by players or GMs. While they add a bit of work for both parties, the additional opportunities for role playing more then make up for it. Have you used followers in your game? If so, how did that work out? Any memorable scenes where the follower played a critical role?

RPG: Dread Pirate King Borloff

RPG: Dread Pirate King Borloff

Borloff is a good generic Pirate Captain for D20 Fantasy games.

Description: Borloff was born into piracy. His father raised Borloff to replace him from an early age. By the age of fifteen he had risen through the ranks, doing every job possible aboard ship before taking command of his own sloop. Borloff is somewhat of a lovable swindler. He has friends and enemies in many ports, usually the same person. He knows it’s only a matter of time before finally being caught, and will quit piracy “after just one more successful capture.” Unfortunately that last job never quite turns out as successful as it needs to be, and he usually forgoes his own share of the loot to be sure the crew gets enough.

Borloff, male human Rog12: CR 12; Size M (5 ft., 9 in. tall); HD 12d6-12; hp 39; Init +8 (+4 Dex, +4 Improved Initiative); Spd 30 ft.; AC 14 (+4 Dex); Attack +10/+5 melee, or +13/+8 ranged; SV Fort +3, Ref +12, Will +6; AL CE; Str 13, Dex 18, Con 9, Int 14, Wis 15, Cha 11. Languages Spoken: Common, Giant, Ignan. Skill points: Rog 165 Skills and feats: Balance +13, Bluff +11, Climb +16, Decipher Script +19, Disable Device +17, Hide +14, Jump +15, Listen +2, Move Silently +16, Open Lock +11, Search +15, Sense Motive +16, Spot +17, Swim +16; Blind-Fight, Deceitful, Diligent, [Evasion], Improved Initiative, Power Attack. Possessions: 27,000 gp in gear.

Adventure Hooks:

– Borloff “left” a map in the possession of one of his many acquaintances on shore. They’re pretty sure that it’s worthless and offer to sell it cheap a member of the party. The map can be as real or unreal as possible, but should include some seemingly nonsense and random directions. (Take the fifth up after the green door)

– The party needs a ship. Borloff has one and offers to rent it cheap.

– The party needs a job. Borloff happens to have one, he just needs some help delivering a trifling little trinket to one of his admirers. Unfortunately the young lady in question is the daughter of the local merchant who has lost many a ship to Borloff’s raids, and has put a large reward on his head.

– The crew has mutinied. Borloff finds himself captain of a crew-less ship and Shanghais the party to fill in “temporarily.”
