A good piece of background detail, though it really does not live up to the billing of being more interesting then what we could create. In some ways, it could be the history of a rock band with the changing of the membership, splintering, and the like.
I think the use of General Stores in RP is better then having the PCs wander around to 15 different stores - I'm just not that interested in in-game shopping unless it is for something truely special, or a setup for contacting an important NPC. Maybe it's not realistic, but it helps conserve valuable game time. Go to Comment
A rare branch of the arcane masters, encountered only among the deepest hill folk or ramshackle cabins, the Saucerer takes his power directly from the consumption of cheap liquor. Only the strongest, rankest, most nauseating of homebrewed alcohol will do, where it is instantly converted into mana available to the caster. Without a minimum level of inebriation, the Saucerer will be unable to cast any spells, as focus inhibits his spellcasting abilities.
