Randolphina the Mighty

By:

Getting sick of people who’s destiny it is to save the world? Well, that’s sure as hell not anything Randolphina’s like destiny!

Appearance:

Randolphina is a painfully thin, greasy haired woman with a bad overbite. Her eyes are rimmed in red as if she has been crying. She always has a proud expression on her face.

She wears a chainmail tunic that is better fit for a giant and a dented, warped, wooden buckler painted green.

Background:

Once, Randolphina may have been a different person, perhaps one of the peasantry, always hearing of heroes born to save the world. Perhaps Randolphina found these inspiring, or perhaps exciting, or perhaps they were merely diversions to her, but in some way they became wedged in her mind. She was never a very good worker, and, as she put it, “was always searching for something more.” But she never really had the guts to leave. Until one day.
She had been planning for weeks to leave and go adventuring. She had gathered her money and found an old rusty knife in the blacksmith’s scrap pile. Her time had come. She dropped her trowel, put down her bag of turnips, stood up….And was struck by lightning. She survived, of course, but was never quite the same.
Randolphina now believes that she is one of the heroes from the old stories, destined to save the world from some monumentous evil. She wanders the wilderness getting beaten up, or, as she calls it, “adventuring”.
Quite a sad tale, really…

She may be a crazy stuck-by-lightning woman. I would use her as a useful recurring nuisance, PC or group DNPC, Follower, or one time encounter. In any case she needs a little help, especially if she gets into her mind to be a follower (actual or DNPC) of one of my PC’s or their group. Hopefully the players will take pity on her and at least train her a bit so she doesn’t keep getting beat up so badly.
For an epic scale campaign . . . maybe she IS what she claims but a curse needs to be overcome for her to come out of her madness and fulfill her destiny . . . naw! to cliché.

Shes mad I tell you – beautifully, gloriously, wonderfully insanely mad as a hatter – completely off her trolley

Or, put another way – she's a scenario waiting to happen

Brilliant 4.5 / 5

Definately cracked, and the stroke of lightning could have really invested her with phantasmal memories dredged together from childhood stories, or might have even carried the dissembodied essence of Porthos the Electromancer! Or she could be as cracked as her shield. People hit by lightning really are a bit off...things just dont click the way that they should.

It is decent, conjures a nice image in my head.

Cold Comfort

       By: Murometz

Cold Comfort is a long-sword of star-steel, its blade giving off a wan, blueish light. Its grip is wrapped tightly in snow-serpent hide, and its pommel bears a single opalescent gemstone.

This blade is enchanted in such a way, that whoever wields it, begins to fall completely and irrevocably "in love" with the weapon. This love does not manifest itself as the expected reverence and bond formed between any warrior and his weapon, but as a deeper, truer love, one has for a soul-mate of the same species! The longer the wielder carries Cold Comfort the stronger and more disturbing this love becomes, and only the most powerful of magicks can potentially break the sword's insidious spell. The blade's owner will even speak to and coo to the weapon, convinced that the sword understands and returns this epic love.

If the blade's wielder somehow loses the weapon or has it taken away, they will become inconsolable, and will predictably go to "ends of the earth and back" to retrieve it at any cost. Such is the weapon's curse that even separation from it does not damper the feelings the owner has for the sword. Legends tell of several distraught and mind-addled knights who even years after losing the blade, still wander the country-side searching for their lost love. And woe be to the "new lover" if and when they find him or her.
