Sinnameron

By:

Fine artisans are hard to find, and Sinnameron goes out of his way to be even moreso.

Special Equipment:

Gemsmith’s tools, an obscene amount of jewelry.

Appearance:

He’s short, even for a gnome, and tends to have a mildly crazed expression, unless discussing jewelry, when he looks obsessed.

Background:

Sinnameron is a master gemsmith.  One would be hard pressed to find an artesian better than he.  The fact that he is mad is a small price to pay. 

He had always had an affinity for gems and jewelry making, and proved to be a natural at creating enchanted jewelry.  He made several fine pieces, including the necklace Cat’s Eyes as a favor to a friend.  His greatest achievement was the fabled set of Stones of Sinnameron.  But, never very stable to begin with, Sinnameron became obsessed with gems, and eventually went completely mad.  He lives as a hermit now, constantly tinkering with his tools and stones.

Roleplaying Notes:

Sinnameron seems only mildly insane until the conversation turns to gems (which he will endevor to do), when the depths of his madness become apparent.

He would be a fine source for any enchanted jewelry, only he is not willing to part with anything.  He would have to be tricked or coerced, or stolen from.

Use caution if getting him to identify something.  You might not get it back.

He might ask the PCs to go find some rare gem for him, because he is getting too old to go hunt them down anymore.  (Although there is some speculation that he might be nigh immortal, as the result of one of his earlier projects.)  Whether or not he follows through on payment is another matter entirely. 

He would be willing to buy any type of jewelry or gems the PCs come across.  He might even try to steal it.

He's almost like a living version of Corvus, only with gems, not orbs.

I guess. Actually based him on a friend's character.

This one is an NPC, where Corvis is backstory and an excuse to have way too many magik items in a world.

Not bad, Wilecoyote types are easy to play.

Mesnoi

       By: Murometz

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.
