Ellen Lancaster    NPCs  (Minor)   (Artistic/Performance)

Singing Her Own Song: Profiling Ellen Lancaster
--by Jamie Easton, New York Times
Ellen Lancaster is a woman who refuses to be labeled. Eschewing recognition, this powerful Delta seeks fulfillment through helping others find their voice. While her tale might seem one of rags to riches, she sees only a lifetime of riches, many of them far more precious than material wealth.

15/30 Bards    NPCs  (Minor)   (Artistic/Performance)

A series of singers and strummers, summarily simple and sinuous, subsisting with singularly spectacular song-stylings.

I've sat on this one for long enough. Feel free to fill in the gaps.

30 Neko Augmens    NPCs  (Extras)   (Artistic/Performance)

Kids today, you can't tell them what to do, right from wrong. When I was a kid we got tattoos and piercings, nowadays they turn themselves into freaking mutants. On purpose!

Just Jane    NPCs  (Minor)   (Artistic/Performance)

I was just another nobody, not part of the clique, not one of the Heathers, just a nameless, faceless nobody. Then, I died.

 

And became somebody.

NPC Characteristics    NPCs  (Extras)   (Artistic/Performance)

NPCs can be so dry and bland when they come up and you aren't prepared for them. Other NPCs often times only have the stats rolled up and their personalities are neglected. That is where a list of simple characteristics can come in handy and you can stereotype the NPC and at least give them some kind of quirk that defines them a little better. Nobody may remember the innkeeper at that one city, but they may very well remember the innkeeper that picked his nose right before he gave the players their change. Just some little things to define the NPCs and make them more real. Some can be used by players as well to spice up their character a little.

Humanchild, the Waif from Fae    NPCs  (Minor)   (Artistic/Performance)

 

"Ladies and Gentlemen, Humanchild, the Waif from Fae, here to tell you your future!"
 
 "How come she ain't got no clothes on?"
 
"She was lost in Faerie and had to fend for herself for many years. No clothing shops in Faerie! We all know that eating Faerie food does strange things to you. For her, she became psychic, but only while she had no clothes on. If she dresses, she loses her psychic abilities, it's like she went blind and deaf!
 
 "So, who wants to know your future? Just one silver piece to know how your endeavors will turn out!"

       By: Scrasamax

The Lost March is a large collection of elephant rafts. The lost march never reached its destination and instead was pulled out to sea. The elephants on the raft eventually starved to death, littering the large wooden carpet with their bones and bird picked hides. While sailors with an eye for gold can salvage the tusks of the bull elephant for a hefty price, the raft is haunted by the spectral ghosts of the pod of elephants and they appear after nightfall and attack and kill anyone trespassing on their raft
