Teggeter

By:

A devout fighter, protector of his family, willing to go to any length to serve his homeland.

Special Equipment:

Mace Of Song (+STR, +CON) Honor Of The Queen (Amulet, +CH) Wolf Whistle (Magic Item)

Appearance:

Teggeter is a Half Orc, with mostly human features. His nose is a bit large for his face, and he has an underbite, with the tips of his fangs poking out from his mouth. He has large, rounded features, and is nearly seven feet tall. He is dressed for the north, wearing a royal blue tunic over chain and leather, fur lined boots, and a silver amulet around his neck, The Honor Of The Queen. His two handed mace is nearly always at his side, the silver Mace Of Song.

Teggeter is a softspoken man, quick to smile and friendly. But if you cross him, he becomes angry. And you wont like him when he’s angry. He was once trained with a bard, and is quite a good singer, often using his powers of song to strengthen himself.

Background:

Teggeter came into the north as a young man, seeking his wild older brother, a half orc like him. He was a young, brash fighter, and after finding his brother was dead, allied himself with the enemies of his killers. The killers were a tribal faction of druids, making war on the small mountain city of Haventoo. Teggeter proved himself a worthy warrior, fighting through the war untill the druids were beaten back. He ended up marying the human leader of the Haventoo warriors, and now has two children living in Haventoo. He will do anything to protect Haventoo, and his family.

Roleplaying Notes:

Teggeter is a good ‘guardsman’ type character, probably the one who will ask the party to go destroy the rebels while he holds down the fort. He has acess to funds, as well as good influence. He would be able to reward the players with discounts at the Haventoo merchants, as well as gold.

If you have a bard-type in your party, Tegg will loan them his Wolf Whistle, which is a one time use (for you) summon up a pack of wolves to aid in the general smiting of enemies.

I like it! I often reuse old characters that I use to have. By the way, does the mace or amulet do anything else than raise stats?

Make 'im look damn cool. Oh, and the mace sings, kinda. When it moves though the air, it makes a cool 'Whrrr!' noise. That scary type noise. I got the idea from the Natural History Museum's IMAX presentation of STOMP, where the artist guy is whiffling around that wood on a string to make that errie sound.

Maybe there is a special power, unknown (or not?) to the current wielder, perhaps even long forgotten...

If the wielder sings a warrior's song (of the mace' original culture), he gains a nice bonus at the end of each verse he sings fully.

The culture may be long gone, but surely legends remain, of mighty warriors, singing their song of battle, merrily decimating the enemy. Such a song may remain, too...

Nine times out of ten, it’s the undead that do the running.

Not strictly animal or vegetable, the Corpse bud is a peculiar individual that shares characteristics from multiple kingdoms and species. In appearance, all corpse buds bear a shape of a large rounded top bud divided into four lateral segments, and a much longer, narrower bottom bud, also divided into four segments. Between the two halves are a set of four radial limbs, rounded on top and flat on the bottom, covered with tiny serrated hooks facing towards the body. In overall size, it’s limbs reach as wide as a spread hand, with the body being as thick as a fist. It is as long as a human hand from top to bottom.

Internally, the top bud of the corpse bud contains a bacteria filled membrane that produces the hydrogen that the corpse bud uses to stay aloft, and a series of fungal gills for the dispersal of spores for reproduction. The lower half of the bud contains a number of fine filaments, as well as a sharp barbed stinger containing a powerful local anaesthesia.

The Corpse Bud mobilizes by inflating its top bud, and steers by rotating its arms rapidly about its body. The corpse bud ordinarily drifts with the wind, orienting towards the scent of recent decay and death. It preys on the recently dead, burrowing the lower bud into the victim, using the anaesthesia in case the victim is dying, and not truly deceased. Once embedded, it releases its filaments into the body, replacing the current nervous system. This gives it full animation of the body, and allows the corpse bud to direct it.

Corpse buds are not a malevolent species, being primarily concerned with breaking down the host body for food, and infecting the reproductive cycle with spores in order to mate with other corpse-bud bodies. To preserve the corpse for this purpose, Corpse buds will seek out dry locations to prevent bacteria from destroying the corpses. This often causes a large number of corpse buds to gather in a single location.

In culture, Corpse buds are used to repair broken spines or degenerative diseases, as the sentient mind will easily overcome the mind of the non-sentient corpse bud. Once infected by a corpse bud, however, removal is usually fatal, and the infected individual cannot reproduce, or risk infecting another. Thus, it is a technique often reserved for the elderly, or a last resort.

Necromancers and other dark sorcerers will often preserve the corpses of their victims magically, and infect them with corpse buds, creating traditional undead as well, so as to seed their lairs with undead both offensive and non, in order to throw their enemies off balance. They will also enslave the rudimentary minds of the corpse buds, and transform the docile things into a plague. There have also been accounts of magically transformed corpse buds with stronger minds and a taste for living flesh, but thus far all accounts are unproven rumors.
