Kosuranda, Princess of Albatrosses

By:

20. Princess of Albatrosses
Also known as the lady of bad luck, this princess breaks mirrors, spills salt, crosses the paths of black cats and every other superstition known to man. She remains perfectly safe, but the bad luck falls around her like rain. Few are willing to be around her for too long, afraid that her bad luck will rub off on them.

From 30 Princesses No. 20:

Appearance
Being the offspring of King Norman Drado and his foreign Queen, who is of dryad descent, Princess Kosuranda has inherited the exotic colouring of her mother- a milky pink with a sheen of light gold. She is a dainty creature with long flowing hair of the colour of oak and large round eyes of emerald.

History/Background
Despite her half-dryad heritage, Princess Kosuranda is a serious-minded scholar of science and scoffs at the notion of there being superstitions. To this end, she often does things that are considered taboo in an attempt to prove that commonly held superstitions are nothing but made up tales. In fact, she is often seen in her private banquet hall holding demonstrations for her retinue of maids and guards (and any unfortunate courtiers who she chances upon) in which she ‘disproves’ a superstition. Always, no harm ever befalls her and she would conclude triumphantly that she is right and happily go back to her scholarly pursuits. Never does she turn her head around to see all kinds of mayhem happening in her wake- courtiers tripping over each other, chandeliers dropping down on toes etc.

Special Equipment
None

Roleplaying Notes
2 likely scenarios where this princess would have a role:
a) A foreign prince (of the bumbling scientist type) falls head-in-heels in love with Princess Kosuranda. Mindful of the devastating power of her bad luck, he commissions the PCs to find a solution to the problem

b) The Princess is kidnapped! Good riddance, you say. But alas, the Kingdom is defeated and she is supposed to be married off to the unbeknownst conqueror as a bribe in a fortnight’s time. Finding her proves to be no problem (due to bad luck falling on her captors). But what would happen when the princess is in the hands of the PCs who have to bring her back- what bad luck will fall on them?

Explaining the "curse"
Princess Kosuranda’s bad luck curse is caused by her rejection of her innate magic. The curse will be lifted if she can be persuaded to delve into magic.

She'd be a hoot in a party of dungeon delvers.

Clever and well-described in few words. #2 made me smile. Bringing her back would be like 'running-the-gauntlet' for PCs. Like Robert DeNiro bringing back that guy in Midnight Run.

A little short for my taste, but OK. A little more color would be welcome.

Tambourine

       By: Yokima.van.zephrill

Tämbourine is firmly placed on my back ,to unsheathe this sword I simply have to say "re clouse" meaning come to me or i can just reach over and unsheathe it the old fashioned way. This sword was created to my liking tambourine is made of raw-like metals I found in different regions as I begun to forge the metals together, I’ve noticed that the raw metal materials were different pieces to a wide variety of swords that were used the past and present, being so most blades have a sheer grey texture Tambourine’s blade became black as the depths of the oceans. The blade expands to 6” which weighs 426lbs the sapphire jewel placed on the tip of hilt (upper middle center of the base) it emits a aura texture of purple which weighs 24lbs the jewel is un-breakable it negates magic for tambourine has a mind of its own only belonging to me it finds a worthy opponents who doesn’t use magic or any type of power to their liking which I can agree with(who would want an opponent that abuses their powers to kill for no reason or to avoid dying by honor tambourine fights with honor and accepts its glory or defeat) I’ve named the sapphire Sophia because not only that its rare and radiant it resembles my burning passion for my love Sophia. I made the hilt to be a length of 15 inches its frame is created with fine katchin (very thick and heavy metal) it alone weighs 50 pounds its texture is black like mixture of, I made it to be a cruciform hilt so it has room for two hands. I I made the blades hilt aprox. 2”, the blade is double-edged but the left side of the swords frame can block and or negate ones attack if needed, it weights 500lbs making it nearly unmovable. To go up against this sword is to quickly find your own death. Tambourine is a twin sword to Terra.
