Dreon

By:

Created in a time of need, he was cast from the pride he was made to obtain, he is a warrior, and a leader.

Special Equipment:

Dreon carries the Diamond Lance, a weapon once wielded by a forgotten hero. This is a a fast weapon, deadly in the hands of Dragoon, it is an example of a true warrior among the Dragoons. Only the best warriors are allowed to wield it in battle, Dreon is one such warrior.

Appearance:

Dreon stands at 7’0. He has the head,wings,legs,tail, and temper of a Dragon. His bulking Human-like body is covered in red scales. His chest is protected by red plate armor, and his private regions are consealed beneath a long kilt(not plad, solid yellow).

Background:

Dreon was a warrior since he was invisioned in his fathers minds. In the 500th year of the Imperial Government, Dragons were occupiing almost half of the mountains, and were blocking the way to many mining areas. The Imperials tried to reason with the Dragons, but to no avail. So, they deemed the Dragons as dangerous adversaries, who planned to destroy all humans. This was the start of the Dragon Hunt.
The Humans were not alone in their war, many Gigantos and Dark Elves allied themselves with the Imperials, they hoped to get rich off the Dragon’s deaths.
The Dragons were nothing compared to an army, and retreated to the deepest part of the mountain. There they created a new race, one with the blood of the Dragons. They made about 130 Prime Dragoons to help them. In their haste, however, they gave the race what they believed to much power. 
To remedy this situation they created the Dragoons, less powerful warriors of the Dragons. They forbade the Prime Dragoons to help unless the situation was dire. But Dreon, the 51st of his brethren, could not take the constant bloodshed, bloodshed he believed he could end. So, he led the Prime Dragoons to battle, and within a year the Dragon Hunt ended, and a treaty was made.
Unfortunatly only Dreon survived the war as the last Prime Dragoon. For him the battle had only begun, for now he had to fight his inner demons. He was held as a hero for his skill with a Lance, but he was plunging into darkness, carrying the guilt of his brothers death on his shoulders. The Dragons saw their fault in denying him the honor of battle, and arranged an audience with him.
They told him his brothers chose to fight, as he did. They fought with the fury of true warriors, and they would be honored as such. Then they gave him the most sacred treasure of the Dragons- the Diamond Lance. Dreon was shocked at the very presence of the weapon, and the descision of the Dragons. He accepted the role of Dragoon Veral, or general. He has been a great soldier for centuries, and has faithfully served his fathers. He is an honor bound fighter, and an ecxellent tactitian. He is feared all over Arcane(the planet)for his skill with a lance. He is known as one of the strongest soldiers in Quatra.

Mmmm... Not yet.

So... What is this character like besides being a "badass mothafucka"? This character is fairly munchkin- a powerful half-breed warrior with all kinds of superior abilities and a nice special magic spear. What is he like personally? Does he still feel guilty for the deaths of his brothers? Does he rule a kingdom or is he just... alone? What does he do? What are his motivations?
Does he just sort of wander around showing off his bad-assery?

       By: Monument

THE COVEN
When the characters approach a clearing in the forest, they will see 4 ogres who are guarding, and preventing from escape, 4 human males, and 3 human females. The ogres will see the party and leap to attack. The females will scream "OUR SAVIORS!!" and run screaming straight across the currently forming battlefield, in between ogres and party members, to hide behind the rearmost party members. They will be safe there. The males will try to skirt the battle to the north side to join the women.

To the south, giants will be hiding in the thick underbrush until the party has engaged the ogres and then attack the most opportune target EXCEPT the ones that the females are next to.

It should be noted that the female commoners are not female commoners at all, nor are the male commoners actually male commoners. The female commoners are the hags, who have polymorphed themselves as the commoners in their stewpot to escape detection. The males skirting the battle are actually MORE ogres, the hags were in the process of polymorphing ALL the ogres into regular humans for ambush purposes. The REAL commoners are already dead, having found their way into the coven's cauldron for dinner.

The hags (the women) will position themselves near to any spellcasters in the rear first, and then near anyone else in the back of the fight. The ogres (the men) will wait until the hags shift form, and then attack first the rear folks, then shift into the melee.

It is possible that the characters, as they approach the ogres, will notice the giants in the bush, and be able to warn the others of the ambush.

GAME NOTES: If you sell the screaming women correctly, they will not even be suspected until it is too late. Therein lay the problem. This encounter is ESPECIALLY deadly to the rear eschelon of the party. It is entirely possible that the hags will finish off half the party before they even realize they have been duped. Caution is required if the game master wishes to avoid a TPK(total party kill).
