Quest - Legendary People



Original Quest from November 1, 2006 to November 30, 2006

Every society has their stories of mythic heroes. King Arthur. Hercules. The Monkey King. Sometimes villians also get in on the mythic status action: Professor Moriarty. Sauron. Jack the Ripper. In the end, every game world needs a fine assortment of larger than life people, if only just the stories of their exploits.



So this month's quest is Mythic/Historical NPCs.
