Thanks. It was a plot hook I was experimenting with. Like a tv show, I wanted to have a few episodes related to individual PCs. This one was going to be a murder mystery related to Jakk's past. The Hessian that appeared injured and being held up by his fellow officers was actually the victim of theirs.
The officers and the commander were smuggling some illegal goods and splitting up the profit. Klauss, the Hessian, was a stand up guy and left out of the deal. When the wagon overturned on the road, he saw what was going on and was killed. The Ork attack was a complete surprise and a blessing for the surviving conspirators. Klauss was listed as KIA and the issue dropped.
Years later, as Jakk returned to his hometown, a regional hero, recent landowner and wealthy, Company 12 was arranging a reunion.
It was going to be a fun little break from the dungeon crawl, but never came to be.
Klauss, the Hessian was going to rise from years of slumber in the limbo of death, and bring his murderers to justice...The dilemna for Jakk would have been...Does he destroy his former mentor to save corrupt killers? It could have went in a bunch of directions. Go to Comment
It was created by a follower of one of my players. He was the party first aid kit, while his master was the caster of clerical defensive spells. The bed came in handy, since I was a stickler for the rules concerning the recovery of hp. Go to Comment
Mining in a certain area turns all exposed skin (maybe just parts that are actively disturbing the chemicals that cause the reaction) of the those doing the mining to a dark blue color. Will wear off taking as many years/days spent in the mine. ... meeting a party of blue-skinned humans armed with pick-axes etc. Strange disease? Demon offspring? Curse? If they meet only one ex-worker, they will very carefully listen to any stories he says, no matter if drunken or insane, or just makes up to get a beer.
