Filler Text

Appearance

The Blueberry Bastard is a thin man of average human height; he has slighty pointed ears, short greasy hair that he wears slicked back and stunning blue eyes. When in public he wears a blue bandana over the lower part of his face, and sometimes a baker’s hat or apron. He usually has a sleevless tunic and dark leather pants, but carries a change of clothes for making
escapes.

History/Background

Mason Leer was just a poor bastard child of The Blueberry Shop’s head baker, Phylos; she raised her son the best she could without a father, even put him to work harvesting fresh blueberries from the hills around town. He was a miserable child, never enjoying anything. Mason longed for a father figure, but his mother was so busy with work she never met any men.

Then one day, his father, or who he claims to this day is his father, came back to town. A cruel-looking half-elf with the same stunning blue eyes. He entered the shop and ordered blueberry muffins, Mason watched the man intensly. This had to be his father, but Phylos was not around to ask. So, Mason left that day. He followed the man.

Special Equipment

The Blueberry Blade - A special rapier hardened with a batch of blueberry muffins in the oven of unbreaking edibles. It is incredibily sharp and strong, but does not flex well. He usually uses it for thrusts, but can slash in wide arcs when enraged.

Roleplaying Notes

THe Blueberry Bastard hates elves and has a hard time hiding this, he will attack them first in a fight.

Plot Hooks

He could be used as an entrance piece to to The Piemaster as one of The Rollers or a rival.

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.
