Name: Ghora Dounahugh-Nergalshi Occupation: Local priest of the Earth god Unique trait: Speaks with a highly dramatic, nasally voice at all times. Basically the Monarch impersonating Dr. Orpheus Location: #17

#4 Barnacus the Brewer 'Barley' human male 'The Barley House'. Large home, part is a brewery. Village is too small for a real tavern/inn, so he uses his living room for people to socialize and drink. Travelers can sleep by the fire if they want, or find a villager that will put them up for the night.
#8 Name: Logan Hamlin Occupation: Kennelmaster Grizzled old soldier that's taken up training hunting/war dogs for the locals after his military service.

Potentially willing to sell the party one of his hound.
Name: Old Kraditz Occupation: Gatekeeper One Unique Thing: has a photographic memory, which is equal parts blessing and curse
A former slaver whose entire operation was destroyed by the town guard, he was sentenced to thirty years of isolated work atop the water-based tower. He's completed twenty-seven without much complaint, getting food and water shipped over daily, usually scraps from the restaurants and taverns. he's had plenty of time to reflect on his actions and nobody would recognize him these days.
A popular figure in town, when not busy working the field, Chuck volunteers as a deputy constable. However this is more of an excuse for him to go around town helping people with odd jobs, or whenever they need something heavy lifted, yet he can step in as an enforcer of the law when needed. Puts on puppet shows in the town square on weekends.

I like him' "Grandfather, I brought you another jar of live insects for your experiment." "Thanks honey, just put it over by the stack of empty jars."
Sorry, used your building. Employee.

#4 Finnerty Valevard - Ol' Finn Local drunkard He does not actually live here, but spends most of the time exploiting Barnacuses hospitality. He's missing an arm, but when asked about it he always tells a different story. Likes to gamble with town guard and passing sailors when sober.... and he's somewhat good at it.
Name: Marcus Ocupation: Son of a Farmer, Hero/Paladin Wannabe Nature: Heroic, Eager to Help, Hot Headed, Protective >Has a masive crush on Elisa
no worries. just wanted to clarify. I pay you good silver, after all :D
forgot - human male around 50 years old
Name: Doctor Hugo Strauss Occupation: Doctor/Coroner Unique thing: Plays the accordion at the tavern on Friday nights.
Dr Strauss lives alone in his small apartment above his doctors office at the market square (#6). Relatively jovial considering his career, he is more than willing to exchange some of the leftovers of more intrusive surgeries or autopsies to local wizards or alchemists, in exchange for some coin. Frequently plays the accordion late at night.
Name: Reyas Upwater Occupation: Tanner One (or two) unique thing(s): -Will tan anything, absolutely anything -Experiments with different methods from urine to brain fluid -Her workshop and house smells terrible -Loves knives, the sharper the better. Collects them, will occasionally accept them as payment, no ornate designs -Bathes publicly -Not bothered by cold
Jephod "Mushmouth" Sternn Lumberjack, spends most of his time hauling logs from the nearby woods for construction, warmth, and repairing the Palisade
5'7", but extremely broad of build, can carry two logs at the same time on his shoulders. Apart from fastidiously maintained eyebrows, is otherwise generally dishevelled
Slurs and mumbles his speech to incomprehensibility; has a tendency to strike up one-sided conversations with townsfolk, who will just nod along and give canned responses to
His mumbling is actually because of his dark secret: He's 1/8th orc on his grandmother's side, and mumbles to keep people from seeing his slightly tusked canines (those don't help his pronunciation either)
>Farmers I got you user Name: Jak Scodger Occupation: Farmhand Unique things: -Refuses to eat meat -Actually loves his job as a farmhand -Foot long cock
Name: Byron and Mydia McRavenfish, aka the Leatherhands Occupation: Farmers, Brewers Quirk: has perpetually pruned feet due to standing in the rice paddies all day
one of the local Farmers, lives in one of the farmhouses at the intersection north of the main road between 18 and 10. more often found in the fields and supplies the town with rice to be made into flour and other goods. Mydia bootlegs some rice wine in their cellar, which they brings out during local festivals.
To make it even more hilarious, make him religious, make him refuse to have sex cuz his dick belongs to jesus (or whatever god is worshiped in town)
>Foot long cock Why does he have only single chickenlet?
Name: Ulf "one eye" Pate Occupation: Farmer Unique things: -Fought in a war -Has seven sons and a very happy wife. -Strong enough to carry three grown men on his shoulders
And I'm calling it. Please give me a few minutes to finish up the pdf then we move to stage 2!
We have 26 entries!
Should include (Refuses to fight)
Either pious or painfully shy and awkward
minor edit, Lady Qu is Sarah's Employer, not her Employee :P
It would be funnier if pious, imagine that combersation with the redneck voice
Grab one snake, now you lady can grab the big black piton, BUT DONT U DARE TOUCH MY PENIS, THAT BELONGS TO JESUS
The lord gave him such a large penis to test his faithfulness, to use it would be to give in to sin.
>The lord gave him such a large penis to test his faithfulness, to use it would be to give in to sin. EXACTLY!
The lord also gave him such a large penis to test and temper the faith of the women in town. Also do we have a priest?
Paers the Cock
Extra-ordinarily intelligent rooster who diligently wakes up the whole village at dawn and doubles as a guardsman in a watchtower, being able to separate strangers from villagers. Sometimes bothers drunks and kids, but scoots away before they can retaliate.
I think even for the ballsier of adventurers or the more famous celebrity warriors, these guys work with level of teamwork that makes them strict donut-fuck-with fighters. This is only a problem for criminals.
>Petite >Strongest Listen, I don't want to be the no fun allowed autistic, but can we pick one or the other? Maybe she's just surprisingly strong? Can she be a big ol' woman like Brienne of Tarth? This is just too anime.
>Petite >Strongest >Listen, I don't want to be the no fun allowed autistic, but can we pick one or the other? Maybe she's just surprisingly strong? Can she be a big ol' woman like Brienne of Tarth? This is just too anime. Seconding this user's opinion. You can either be petite and cute or you can be strong. There is a reason strong people look thick and bulky. Honest character design also keeps some form of consistency in a story.
Name: Dirk Douglas Dunsmere the VII Occupation: beggar Unique thing: He believes to have a pet cat name "Oscar", but no cat accompanies him.
Flavor: Dirk has a unique stench that isn't quite urine, isn't quite body odor, and isn't quite woodsmoke, but somehow a mixture of all three masked by a strong overture of Citrus
Notice, We have no priest,
Name: Thomas Augustus Torquemada Ocupation: Priest, Inquisitor Personality: Masive Cunt, Suspicious of his own grandmother, Sexualy Repressed
>Petite >Strongest This might be one of those weeb translation errors. I don't know if anime writers are lazy, but they often conflate skill, speed, or competence with the word "strength" even if they are not physically strong.
So op, when are we doing stage 2?
Now that we have our citizens, it's time to build some stories.
>Quote two (or more) posts in this thread and link the NPCs together in someway. (e.g blood-relatives, friends, enemies, secret crush, lovers etc.)
Lady Qu places orders with Elisa whenever one of her ships comes to port, usually for larger items. she also repeatedly, but unsuccessfully, tries to court her with awkward flirting and little handmade gifts.
Also i need to ask, is Khillan the urchin canon?
Old Kraditz is permitted to come down from his watch when the twins need his expertise to train new recruits. he respects their work ethic regarding former slaves and helps them evaluate what life skills the recruits appear to be lacking in.
Marcus really doesnt like Lady Qu Marcus often asks for relationship advise from Khillan wich is a bad idea
Doctor Strauss puts aside some of the more exotic things he retrieves from bodies for Reyas' projects, and is willing to charge less coin in exchange for some of the finished product.
Op It would be really helpfull if you were to give us some feedback every once in a while
The Twins, as a favour to Boomer for a debt they owe to the wizard they will not divulge, bring him the Slaves they rescue from time to time and let him examine them for what the wizards says is "magical potential" and "likely looking apprentices". Perhaps there is an ulterior motives to Godwinson's examinations, perhaps not, but the Captains see no harm in honouring their deal. One of his three apprentices was found in this manner.
Sure! What kind of feedback are you looking for? So far I've tried to incorporate everything as best I can into the descriptions.
Chuck and Ulf oversee most of the farming work in the town. They actually met during the war, with the older Ulf being Chuck's captain and mentor. Every year since moving to the town, they have competed in the town's annual strongman contest. Nobody has managed to best either of them since their arrival.
>Paers the Cock saved some kids playing outside the walls from a pack of wild dogs by alerting the watch captain before the doggos could close in. Paers was rewarded with a small wooden medal for his heroic action.
Khillan will periodicly help the doc in his experiments either by, getting stuff he needs (By any means nesesary) or As a labrat
Marcus Is unawere of this Elisa (Being the big sister type) strongly oposses to the idea, as in: Elisa: No, just no Khillan: ... Elisa: Go to my place, we'll talk there, i have a few things to say to the doctor
can we PLEASE have the rooster go berserk at the sight of the Priest? its like the one townsfolk it cannot stand.
You know, general stuff, post something once in a while, talk to the anons about their ideas
Yes. I support this
>There were some dog packs seen in the outskirts and the children were told not to go too far from the village, but these kids were playing too far away from the safety of palisades.
Lady Qu buys some of their rice wine to give as gifts to other merchants and her boat captains. she wants them to open a proper distillery, but as their children have moved out of town they don't want to teach non-family the process, so the batches remain fairly small.
Marcus looks up to Canon and Canon treats him like a aprentise and takes him to his less dangerous adventures to learn about the hero buisness, also about ladies
Name: Torsten Miller Ocupation: Miller (therefore the last name) One unique thing: Lost his left little and ring finger when he was young and got them stuck in the mill. He calls it his "proof of experience"
Doctor Strauss has no idea why anyone oppose a small boy taking part in disembowelling corpses and carting the innards around town, as he considers it a learning experience and a good way to keep him off the streets. The doctor attempts to impart knowledge of medicine onto the boy, hoping for an apprentice or assistant for the days when his eyesight goes bad or his joints give up.
>can we PLEASE have the rooster go berserk at the sight of the Priest? its like the one townsfolk it cannot stand. Hell yeah
#2, whichever tower:
Name: Gerhard Occupation: Tower Guard Unique things: - typically drunk on schnapps - regards his job as keeping the townsfolk inside; thinks he works at a prison camp - spit and polish kind of dude
Canon on occasion brings Logan subdued and hogtied beasts and offers him large amounts of gold to try and tame them, he has so far categorically refused these requests on principle. A list of memorable attempts includes >a bear >four vipers which he planned to keep in his loincloth in case of emergency >a giant spider >a harpy >a werewolf which turned back into a man midway through negotiations >a timberwolf the size of a bull
Well so far the ideas have been pretty great! I'm just here to record stuff, we're all making this together.
her baths are the highlight of his day. were he a much younger man, he'd have tried to woo her. instead, he just watches and dreams. he doesn't actually know much about her personality, but it probably wouldn't bother him much if he did.
Strauss strikes me as kind of an autist (Wich is a nice character trait to have in a doctor i really like it) Also, Khillan is way smarter than he lets on to, a genious even, as incultured as he might be
I love the mental image of this. >"For the last time, it's a kennel not a damn zoo!"
>Occupation: Town mascock, alarmcock
I really like this one. The wistful, redemptive prisoner watching from above and burning the image of a young, beautiful woman bathing into his unerasable mind.
Yet another thing his old sins have cost him.
I wonder if Paers has some basilisk blood in him for being such a hero.
