Randolphina the Mighty


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!


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.


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

She is, as Dragon Lord said, gloriously mad.

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.

An ancient sub, how marvelous!

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

She strikes me as a bag-lady adventurer. Perhaps her only power, granted by the lightning strike, is cartoon-character high hit points.

So yes, she becomes a recurring character, but to addled to stick around long. And, fate always seems to conspire to insure she can wander freely.

Screwdriver Sword

       By: Gossamer

For a futuristic grim gory setting. Probably powered by some kind of dilithium battery or something similarly awesome. Anyways, basicly a big drill sticking up from a hilt that you primarily use for skewering enemies painfully and drilling through armor.
