An ingenious alchemist. An insane idea. A disastrous result.
(—Joint Character by Shadoweagle and CaptainPenguin—)
Once an adventurer, this now disembodied mage is seeking a reason to continue, or a way to die.
A soft smile and good nature hides this mans true intentions.
An elder lich recently returned from a journey across the worlds who seeks an artifact of ancient times.
In the middle of an unimportant combat with some bandits a burst of wild magic transforms all of the PCs and their opponents in to random animals and monsters. They retain their intelligence (though not, of course, the ability of speech). They can either carry on the combat in their new forms, panic, or otherwise react how they see best. After about an hour, they return, unharmed, to their normal form.
