While he can provide some comic relief, and be an 'employer' of sorts for PCs, this character leaves to be desired for... he's not all too different from the classic "unprepared nobleman/woman in need" Go to Comment
An interesting character, moreso for being a great contrast to the classic "fool-around, good-for-nothing" Pooka...
His personality is realistic (for a fae:) and there are many ways to include him in an adventure.
Good post. Go to Comment
I *Love* it!. Extremely well detailed and the personality overflows the writing. I will certainly add him to my fantasy world, and perhaps eventually to the Urban fantasy that we are talking of making. Go to Comment
Travel into a book or image is a common theme in mythology, folklore, and modern fantasy (Narnia anyone?). Zelazny made it most fashionable. Then Myst made it cool.
Remember it is not the plot that is cliche, it is the execution that determines if it is cliche. The story of Romeo and Juliet had been around for a few centuries in a variety of forms before some guy...Shakespear did it just right. Then someone did Guys and Dolls. There are a couple of others, but you get the idea. Go to Comment
