Great fun! At first I thought it was a little overdone (which was probably the point) but then the plot hooks brought it all together for me. I pictured him as a cartoon character like GROO the entire time and I think the image half fits. Great idea!! Go to Comment
A perfect NPC. A great foil for a hard working adventurer who is not getting the fame he deserves for all the real work he is doing.
Hey I did that: The players perform some great act in a remote area. When they head towards civilization after having to spend some time resting or taking a detour for some reason, they are hearing stories of Redgar performing the deeds that they did. They even might be mentioned as supporting characters. Go to Comment
Yes, truly a 5/5. Scrasamax: You are a major shareholder of 5/5 posts on this forum :) Very good and certainly a character most players will remember with ire and annoyance for a long time =) Go to Comment
I think another nice addition would be that the PCs hear of this Redgar claiming to have done deed X and saved Village Y or whatever, of course the events in the rumors accreditted to Redgar are the very same actions that the PCs have just done, furthermore it seems that Redgar's entourage is taking credit for all the goodly deeds that the PCs have done over the years.
Obviously the PCs will be a little unhappy, and will go looking for Redgar to settle this issue. Go to Comment
Awesome idea, honestly. Whenever I game, I play a professional soldier, a make-no-bones-about-it type of killer- the guy who'll high-five you in streets one day and shoot you right in the face the very next day if ordered to. Now, my type of character, who emphasizes courage and honor above glory (think special operations soldiers WITH MAGIC!) would end up trying to strangle Redgar within minutes. And if his propaganda guys start saying that it wasn't a fair fight, then my dude'd probably say it wasn't, since Redgar's such a bloody pansy that he was crying like a baby in five seconds.
I want to put this guy into a campaign, now. How could I introduce him into a magic/technological environment, though? Go to Comment
