Sokolov the Axiomancer    NPCs  (Major)   (Knowledge/Lore)

Good and evil? I see neither, I only see law and order opposing chaos and anarchy. Anarchy means blood, death, and poverty. I’ll take order and riches over that.

"I’ve heard poets say a pen is mightier than a sword.  Foolishness, mostly.  But I’ll say this.  A pen in my brother’s hand is worth a hundred swords in a hundred soldiers’ hands."

Vee Keykold    NPCs  (Character Sheet)   (Knowledge/Lore)

Well, this certainly looks like a K’tonian artifact but if you notice the grooves on the bottom, that means that this was actually made on a Jiyong potters wheel as an imitation of the K’tonian style of pottery. This is a replica, albeit a 700 year old, very good replica. I do happen to know a buyer who would be willing to pay you for it.

Vychan the Flamespewer    NPCs  (Major)   (Knowledge/Lore)

Most Dragons live to accumulate wealth and crouch upon heaps of gold, content to slag troublesome heroes into cinders and distaining the company of men to absolute solitude. Vychan is not such a dragon.

Grisus    NPCs  (Minor)   (Knowledge/Lore)

The Magistrate has something of a reputation for Solomonic wisdom and the determining of past events.  While the magistrate is not a stupid man by any stretch of the imagination, his reputation stems from his assistant rather than his innate abilities.  Grisus is that assistant.

History is full of interesting and exotic people who can help to populate your world.  They can help illuminate the range of what people think is possible for your world (or you can consider them PCs run by players not in your game).

Boots Of Ennui

       By: Murometz

These magical boots empower the wearer with several abilities at once. Wondrous leaping, water-walking, and even flying! Yet the boots possess an insidious curse upon them as well. A deep and almost unfathomable (by others) feeling of listlessness, boredom, and even apathy affects the boots' wearer at all times whenever they are donned. Magic will not dispel the effects.

And so while the wearer of the boots can perform great feats of action during combat or at other opportune times and key moments, they'll never really want to do so, complaining "Meh, what's the point of it all anyway?" or "I would fly up and save us all guys, but sigh, maybe uhm, soonish, mkay? Bit bored by this whole burning tower at the moment."

Naturally the boots wearer's fellow PCs will grow quickly frustrated with this arrangement. There have been numerous occasions when one angry PC literally tears off the boots from his companion's feet in anger, and dons them in turn, only to immediately suffer from the same effects.

The solution lies in constantly "motivating" the boots' wearer with successful rolls, involving threats, flattery, fiery speeches, or even bribery.
