Bacon the Dog


CRTF's first resident goofball animal mascot.

Bacon started as a random dog that liked to slip into the cafeteria to steal bacon off of Reese's plate- initially somewhat a joke, but also a subtle indication that not everything is quite right in the world of CRTF.

I mean hey, when Hell is invading Earth, a crafty German Shepherd with a love of bacon can't be that unusual, right?

As players are wont to do, they quickly adopted Bacon as one of their mascots. If not really providing anything substantial to the plot, having all my players grow emotionally attached to a non-serious character has been amusing.

Bacon is a crafty animal. His habit of stealing food off of people's plates belies his stealth and cunning, as well as his origins as a stray. Trained in K9 work by CRTF, he's reliable and is fearless in the face of hellspawn. Bacon is capable of operating elevators, making many wonder if he possesses extreme animal intelligence.

Bacon is joined by Sly, a foul-tempered Raccoon found by one of my players.

Of course, then one of my characters took 'Speak with Animals'...

When speaking, Bacon has a bombastic way of talking in a way most would expect a medieval knight to (The following is a small collection of in-game quotes):
"I am Taddeo Maxwell RotWurst Junior The Fourth of the House Tully of Mailmen's Demise."(I could not resist a few references!)

"Good sir, my digestion would kindly appreciate any sustenance allotted to it in the form of bacon." Bacon says, looking at the plate.

The other elevator dings and Bacon exits, carrying a pack of bacon in his mouth.

"Clockwork one, my bowl has a distinct lack of nourishment and you should rectify this heinous situation with utmost haste and consideration." Bacon nudges his nose into Reva's lap.

"Clockwork one, my ears doth ring akin to the buzzing of electronic devices but to a level unprecedented after that horrendous cataclysm claimed the lives of many innocents." Bacon says, sounding slightly pained. (After a large explosion.)

"Sly, I believe our companions have dire need of our assistance for the Clockwork One to approach us as such. Surely you cannot turn away our valiant and fortright ally in the struggle against the darkness that threatens us all!"
"Sly, I will punish thee with a lack of vertical support should thine refusal to assist our lofty mission continue further more." Bacon says to the Raccoon.
"IS THAT A SHORT JOKE?" Sly starts hissing some very unpolite things at Bacon.
(A few minutes later, Bacon has somehow convinced Sly to help)
"I told our wanton companion I would give him my next week of bacon should he give his all in this task." Bacon says."Only later will he realize I was a fiend and lying."

All in all, Bacon grew from a background NPC to being comedic relief for the game. Sometimes, you just have to have the audacity to be a little insane!

Oh man, I needed that laugh. I want Bacon for my game, but I could never do him justice. Thanks for sharing!

Very nice. You can never have too many animal mascots. (That's a lie - there's definitely a limit).

"Binding the Life Coil" is an ancient quasi-mystical technique rediscovered to prolong one's life at the expense of one reproductive ability. It is a simple magikal technique that anyone can learn (a skill or feat). The promise of near immortality or a lifespan of a thousand years or more makes everyone want to learn it.

This technique has a price though, the amount of immortality is in direct response to the strength of ones reproductive spirit. Those that have never breed will live longer than those that have. The use of the technique makes conception difficult, if not impossible. So you trade the future of your society for the chance for you to see much of that future.
