And now with this final character I continue on the story behind my two previous characters: Navg the Pained and Greg, Chief Cheforc. I’m still quite attached to Greg even though he died quite a while ago, so creating this tie-in to his character is a nice way of continuing on his story. I’ll be playing him as a finesse, dexterity fighter which is something I haven’t done before, so it should prove interesting. Even though I’m using the ‘samurai’ archetype I’m not really thinking of him as an actual samurai, it was really just for the ability to interact better with those of nobility and authority.
I had some fun with this guy. For anyone that read the article on Navg the Pained, Greg is his replacement. The campaign got reworked into a naval one and Navg didn’t quite fit in. Thus the lovely Greg was born. He is the ships cook, and he makes really tasty food. Everyone thinks the food is tasty, and those who don’t usually get profusely cursed at and sometimes receive worse.
Pate is a Lawful good, 18 year old human. He was inspired by an AskReddit thread asking something along the lines of “You’re the NPC the main character meets at town, what quest do you give them?”. Someone said that they would get the character to fetch them super powerful magic weapons and armour, and also to train the NPC so that he could exact revenge upon a dragon. Once the character completes all the quest prerequisites the NPC would walk outside the town gates to approach his foe – a large and deadly dragon. The dragon will then immediately kill the NPC and the character will have to deal with the dragon, receiving the NPC’s equipment as the quest reward if they wished to loot the NPC they spent so much time helping.
Hmm, I feel like posting up the characters I come up with for d&d campaigns I play in. Maybe the NPC’s for my own campaign too, it could be interesting. It’ll certainly give me a reason to post more frequently.
Meet Navg the Pained, below you’l find the bio I’ve written up for his Roll20 bio. At the time of this post he’s a 3rd level wizard getting ready to make his way in the world, I didn’t feel like making your usual spell-caster who studies for ages then decides to go adventuring so I came up with this instead. There was something in the world lore about a beast, so that and Over the Garden Wall are what most inspired Navg. He’s sort of got that cliche tragic backstory, but let me know what you think nonetheless.
