Prince Hakon


A pirate prince’s son with a secret he still hasn’t figured out…

Prince Hakon is a young man in his early 20s.  His height is average, at 58.  He weighs in at a 145 lbs.  He looks like any other non-descript sailor in any port town. Prince Hakon is quite unaware of his pirate prince status.  He has a rather odd tattoo on his back, in the shape of a little known island chain.  The center island of the chain is of a different color than the other islands in the tattoo.  It is a map to a secret stronghold used by his father.

Prince Hakons father was a pirate prince and his mother was a tavern wench.  Hakons father promised to take care of her if she produced an heir.  When Prince Hakon was born, his father tattooed the location of his hidden stronghold on the childs back.  Hakon was a young boy of six onboard his fathers ship when it was hit by a storm.  Hakons father tried to guide the ship to a safe harbor but the storm smashed the ship among the rocks.  Most of the crew drowned, including Hakons father.  The young boy survived, washing up on a beach not far from a port town.  He was hundreds of miles from home and had no idea how to get back

Years later, his mother, not knowing the boy survived, mentioned the tattooed map to one of the patrons that frequented the tavern she still worked.  She is aware of the general area where the island chain is located but not its exact location.  The sailor, unknown to her, was one of the survivors of her husbands ship wrecked crew. 

Hakon is now a sailor and although he knows about the tattoo, he has no idea what it means.  He has shown it to a couple sages but they have not figured out what it means.  Hakon knows where he was born but the ship he works on has never gone there.

Special Equipment
Hakon has no special equipment.  He is an ordinary seaman working on a legitimate merchant ship.  His map is his only treasure.

Roleplaying Notes

Another good submission. People could be looking for him to find the map.

Again, which 30 is this submission from?

This character is from the 30 Princes.

This certainly expands upon the Prince Hakon entry of the 30 Princes. The link between the sailor his mother confides in and Prince Hakon seems a little thin, and that he does not make a greater effort to get home.

Also, while there are a lot of possibilities for roleplaying, a few examples would be good since you included the section.

So, basically this is Enola from Waterworld, with her map tattoo showing the way to Dryland...

That is the basic plot of the 1995 Kevin Costner movie, Waterworld.

This sub twists the story a little, but I find little or no invention here.

The food that eats you back.

Creatures of nightmare, the thankfully rare Mesnoi have unique form and attributes. Only one Mesnoi at a time will ever be "encountered".

In appearance, a Mesnoi resembles a walnut-sized chunk of freshly-roasted red meat from some uncertain yet familiar, edible animal. The insidious creature camouflages itself quite appropriately whenever it can, by slowly making its way amidst feast tables and trays of roasted meats.

Once eaten by the unsuspecting, the Mesnoi sinks down to the stomach, reforming if chewed, and begins to lap up the gastric fluids, digestive juices, and bile that it craves, like a sponge.

The Mesnoi carrier will experience mild to severe stomach pains during this time.

After a few hours of this (this is the only time that the Mesnoi can be purged with magic, or other mundane means), the Mesnoi transforms into its true form inside its victim, that of a miniature, once more walnut-sized, pot-bellied, devil-horned, snake-tailed imp. This horrid little creature then begins to chew and eat its way out of the victim from the inside out with its tiny, razor-sharp teeth, like a rat forced to do so via torture.

The victim almost always dies a slow, agonizing death. That much is certain. The devilish imp then exits its victim and begins its seventy two hour existence of mischief and malevolence, until it once more turns back into a hunk of roasted meat with the movement capabilities of a snail.
