Actually, Ian Flemming came up with the name after meeting a postal clerk. The man was boring and non descript, the most non descript man he had ever met. That man had the name James Bond. He choose it because it was so "common" and so "boring". I guess if he was an American author, we would be saying "Brown, John Brown," instead. Go to Comment
I like the combining of genres and settings to produce something new. They had spies in the Renaissance times, each prince/ household against the others. I could see a campaign of spy vs spy set in Italy in the late 1300s. Go to Comment
For the people who asked. This character is the Benchmark for a THREE FLAME score. It has a good format, good English execution, and a passable idea behind it. Not every character has to be flashy, powerful, or even that intricate. Every character does not need to be exotic or unique. There is a lot to be said for a solid, basic, character. Go to Comment
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
The PCs are setting up camp at the end of their first day of walking through the Esh-Inel Mountains, when they hear in the distance a low rumbling, like thunder. It grows progressively louder until it echoes off the mountainous bowls around them, then dies away again. At its worst the ground starts trembling. It happens every day at this time, and it is the noise of the Great Carts on the dwarfish underways returning home after a day mining, laden with many tons of ore.
