Nicely executed and has a lot of scholarly details (I am not sure where anyone dealing with this would get those, but we move on). The piece is generic enough that it has dozens of uses in dozens of ways.
This one could be a modern or supers submissions as well as just a fantasy one.
The Dragon can easily be swapped out for any similar Mystic Scale monster, all one needs to do is change the meaning of the word Haern. If desired, I can add the dragon as a sub, but there are enough suitable dragons out there to fit the bill. Go to Comment
Will be converting some of the notables in this sub to Stubs and then Subs as time allows.
In some ways it's like making an onion - you always need to add another layer :)
I will be elaborating on the home city, its politics and culture as time allows, but for now it is a large, middle-easternlike maritime city. There are two major ethinic division with the minority in power. Herithi is part of the majority which is oppressed, Cardos (and all other government figures) are part of the minority.
A very original NPC! It seems that the beggars and lowlifes of the city have more magical resources than one might expect!
I like the way that his history was presented and the nicely fleshed-out supporting characters, the cruel judge and the regretful executioner.
I suspect that Yatharith would have kept a regular watch on the activity of the courts, both to recruit likely future beggars from among the executioner's maimed victims and to gather information that might interest his friends among the criminal underworld. Go to Comment
A fascinating NPC, and one that coudl easily prompt the more good hearted adventures to take it upon themsevles to either heal or avenege, especially once they realize the mans capability and how his gratitude could be reapaid...
