79. Midge

The town's seamstress. She makes fine clothes and (like a lot of you young people around these parts) dreams of life beyond the mountains surrounding the shire.

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

78. Clara Hammond

The sheriff's wife. She makes sure the secrets of the town are known to all. She will tell you anything she knows, or has heard, or may have imagined.

Monday, September 27, 2010

77. Sheriff Hammond

Having retired from the royal army, he now serves as the sheriff of Drost. He knows much of weapons but generally leaves the gang of lawless criminals to themselves.

Sunday, September 26, 2010

76. Jasper

The priest. He holds weekly services, visits the sick, conducts last rites, and performs weddings. He's not very good with groups; as he is shadow specced.

Saturday, September 25, 2010

75. Marshall

This fire mage usually is the happy-go-lucky carriage salesman who the shirefolk know and love. When his temper takes over, though, the magic of fire is unleashed.

Friday, September 24, 2010

74. Hank

This black guy fits right in, strangely enough. He serves the community as barber and hairdresser extraordinaire. He obviously thinks that something should be done about your unorthodox hairstyle. A trim perhaps?

Thursday, September 23, 2010

73. Doris

The barber's wife. She usually has the strangest hairdo in town, although it seems that with you here things have changed. Most of the time she can be found at the market.

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

72. Selendria

The Drost town witch-woman. Turns out, she's the sister of that one lady you met. Yeah, the village-leadery one. Most of her so-called magic really just comes down to a whole lot of behind-the-scenes legwork. She supplies potions and trinkets.

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

71. Rusty

Thirteen years of age. He delivers things. He plans to make his business national within the next five years. He provides you with several minor delivery boy quests culminating in your ultimate frustration.

Monday, September 20, 2010

70. Mr. Johnson

As you now well know, Mr. Johnson is a master of the ancient arts of martial combat. He also owns the local brewery. The secrets of either craft come only at a great price. No, not that kind. Money. I meant money.

Sunday, September 19, 2010

69. Winky

A tragic kickball accident robbed him of the sight in his left eye years ago. His kickball career was over forever. He was forced to spend the rest of his life with only one eye open. His other eye, he claims, stings when he opens it.

Saturday, September 18, 2010

68. Corvall

This blacksmith is neat and clean. Although he is young, his work is valued throughout the land as it is durable and well-balanced.

Friday, September 17, 2010

67. Don

Don doesn't do much of anything.  He claims to be in training. Hopes someday to be rich and famous, but he isn't quite sure how to start. No, he doesn't want to "join your party." Whatever that means.

Thursday, September 16, 2010

66. Withersby

Withersby can communicate with the spirits of those who have passed to the land beyond the grave. In spite of his amazing ability, most of what he does is smoke and mirrors.

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

65. Mr. Seville

The town's cheapskate. Never spends a shilling that he doesn't have to. May or may not be secretly wealthy as it makes no difference in his lifestyle. Clearly, he also cuts his own hair.

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

64. Marlon Corldington

Like many half-elves, he seems to have inherited the worst traits of both humans and elves. He specializes the cooking of poultry. It's rumored that his hearing is exeptional.

Monday, September 13, 2010

63. "General" Haversly

Nah, he's no general. I don't even see any chevrons. Clearly he just likes dressing up. For the most part, his obnoxious comments don't lead to violence, as they are not ill-intended. If you strike him, however, the other people of Drost will understand.

Sunday, September 12, 2010

62. Bill Menderson

Shoemaker. Once crafted the finest shoes in town. Now he is destitute. His own children often go barefoot. Seeks odd jobs. Currently seems to be working as some sort of bouncer.

Saturday, September 11, 2010

61. Mr. Drew

Schoolteacher. A kind and loving figure. He teaches at the schoolhouse and may be employed as a tutor of both violin and dance. He is suspected to be a liberal. The town gossip also mentioned that he had spent some time in the Outer Islands.

Friday, September 10, 2010

60. Howard

He seems humble, likable, and kind-hearted. He is often seen donating to charities. Upon closer inspection you realize that his full head of hair is actually a massive combover. You begin to doubt that he is all he pretends to be. Then, he offers you a great deal on collectible paper fragments.

Thursday, September 9, 2010

59. Old Samuels

He has an uncanny ability to predict the weather. Samuels travelled this continent for half a lifetime buying and selling the finest of carpets before bottoming out in Drost. He now carries with him only a small scrap of rug, no bigger than his gnarled hand.

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

58. Babcock

He's smaller than most of the townsfolk, but the baker has a large heart. Seriously though, It is actually too large. It's a medical condition.

Tuesday, September 7, 2010

57. Arnson

Farm boy: Simple and hard working. Still dresses in the outmoded fashions of the last century. Whittles in his spare time. He dreams of another world that he may someday see. He reminds you a little bit of yourself, last week.

Monday, September 6, 2010

56. Speedy

This old man has never left Drost in his entire life. He foresees no major changes in the future and fails to acknowledge the changes of the present. He's got a pretty good sense of humor, but he takes quite a while to say anything.

Sunday, September 5, 2010

55. Carol

The doctor's wife. She sees it as her duty to reform the backward ways of this small town. She may usually be found on Main Street wearing rather expensive clothes.

Saturday, September 4, 2010

54. Dr. Kennicott

The town's physician recently returned from the High Academy of Sciences. He cares for the sick using methods of science and doubts the existence of magic. Other than that, he's a pretty accepting guy.

Friday, September 3, 2010

53. Brancattio (Try and make it sound Italian.)

Having started life as a court jester (yes, he was a court jester as a baby) Brancattio's ability to turn a phrase and cloak wisdom in humor soon made him famous throughout the civilized world. Eventually he abandoned the humor (if not the tights) completely and became Drost Shire's wise man and High Quest Giver. Correlates the directive efforts of the mimes. Knows about everything, but can only tell you exactly what you need to know.

Thursday, September 2, 2010

52. Robert

This young bard is monitored for research purposes by a large unclassified being with almost unlimited powers. The mysterious creature will go to great lengths to preserve Robert's life.

Wednesday, September 1, 2010

51. Hrumph Gwarr

A captured mountain yeti, paraded around the various towns of Drost Shire for money. These creatures are generally shy and stick to the icy northern wasteland or mountainous areas. His eyes plead with you for release, but his mouth says "Grawwhr hrrr wrooghrah ghraauu!"

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

50. Hans

Although thinner and slyer than most vikings, he still leads his viking crew with the warmth and joviality so common among his people. While (whilst?) vikings seldom make their way so far inland, this group appears to be well-known and liked here in Drost. They contribute significantly to the local glass bead industry. (Side note: I'm trying out some different photoshop brushes... not sure how happy I am with the result.)

Monday, August 30, 2010

60. Bernard Jr.

The leader of the local group of neatly dressed bullies. The bullies and the outlaws will occasionally come head to head. The resulting battle usually takes place down at the pub. Meticulously choreographed dancing is only rarely involved.

49. Kathrinka

The chiefest of the village women. She controls much magic and hosts many, many quilting bees, baby showers, and other special events and social functions. There is a certain sadness within her. As she mentions her lack of children her eyes mist over and she glances away.

Sunday, August 29, 2010

48. Stanley

As the former captain of the town's kickball team he has a lot of pull around here. He is a man's man who spends a good deal of his time caring for his aging parents. Why is he cropped so close? I'm trying to stick to my original 1-hour time limit per character: expect more zany adventures in cropping!

Saturday, August 28, 2010

47. Chief SwiftFinger

Leader of the local trolls. He heads all community based events including weddings, fund-raisers, and rites of passage. (Pictured here in the traditional ceremonial garb designed to bring in more tourism.)

Friday, August 27, 2010

46. Harry

Although he is barely 18 years of age, this young traveling monk is already completely bald. You can make fun of him about it. Go on! Make fun of him! I'm pretty sure he's not one of those ninja monks. Look at his stance! Clearly this is one cleric that hasn't been trained in the so-called "deadly arts."

Thursday, August 26, 2010

45. Jamison

Calm, confident, and good with tools. Everything seems to work out just right for this blacksmith's apprentice. It's as if the entire world and its laws bend to accommodate his good fortune. Say... he could be one of them luck-benders! Or maybe he just takes the time to do things right the first time. Either way, it is pretty mind-blowing.

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

44. Marvin

It's not THAT big. I mean... it is big... but I've seen bigger. Yeah, I have. You know what's really strange is that tank-top and scarf combo thing he has going on. No I can't remember a specific time and place that I saw a bigger one. Just let it go. Okay?

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

43. Potato Man

From his stocky frame and dig-suit you'd say he looks like a dwarf. In blatant disregard for any scientific nomenclature, folks in these parts insist on referring to him as "The Potato Man." The stubborn locals also inform you that he seldom speaks, eats only potatoes, and is available for hire as both a well-digger and a fry cook.

Monday, August 23, 2010

42. Camberlon Reynolds

A man primarily concerned with his own safety. Spends most of the day in his garden. In spite of the hours of attention, the garden seems in a disarray, plants of all kinds seem to grow willy-nilly in no discernible pattern. The herbs and spices in particular seem to excite your young companion.

Sunday, August 22, 2010

41. Marlow Junior

The son of a wealthy merchant. He is a youth of high moral and intellectual standards. He has had no need to be otherwise. Well, maybe not now. He seems pretty upset at you.

Saturday, August 21, 2010

40. Mary-Jane

Ex-military pacifist mechanic. Theoretically opposed to the societal ills that accompany a gang of thugs living in the woods nearby. Capable of repairing almost anything. Unwilling to repair weapons or implements that could be used for harm. Probably has some good war stories.

Friday, August 20, 2010

39. Muckler

This mossy creature is the watchman and spy of the outlaws. In spite of his awkward proportions, he is able to move almost silently through the forest. He cannot speak, requires no sleep, never takes bathroom breaks, and never gets sick: the perfect employee. What good is he as a spy if he can't communicate you ask? Maybe he... like... hand signals. Yeah, let's roll with that.

Thursday, August 19, 2010

38. Andre-Louis

Even though he is a relative newcomer to the group, he is far more likely than "Robin Hood" over there to take over command of the outlaw band. A natural leader and trained attorney, he has already masterminded several of the most clever and profitable heists in the history of the gang. His brazen methodology, however, is not without it's detractors.

Wednesday, August 18, 2010


The third and final skull brother. Has a high, whiny voice. In spite of today's setbacks he continues to plot his eldest brother's escape. Seems to have little support from the other outlaws. You fail in your attempt to get him to trade bathrobes with you. After all, his robe is at least four levels higher than yours.

Tuesday, August 17, 2010


He wanted to be like Robin Hood but fell far short. He soon found that outlaws were harder to rally to the cause of equality than they usually appear in works of total fiction. Nowadays he follows the outlaws on their raids; loudly proclaiming to the cowering citizenry that their stolen property has been suitably liberated!

Monday, August 16, 2010


His blood-sucking ways have earned him the reputation of a sick and demented serial murderer. He is shunned by most people and is only tolerated by the outlaw gang because of his superhuman strength, lightning speed, and monetary contributions. His family owns a haunted castle nearby, I've heard.

Sunday, August 15, 2010


Not a very bright lad. Word around town is that he is part-ogre on his mother's side. He is marked with a distinctive confidence in his ability to pull through in tough spots. After all, he's been okay so far right?

Saturday, August 14, 2010


An obvious ally to all the powers of evil. He keeps the books for the outlaw band and knows a good deal of limericks.

Friday, August 13, 2010


The heavily armored leader of a group of outlaws dwelling on the edge of Drost Shire. His voice is low, booming, and a little hollow. He seems somewhat surprised to see you. Looks like that tunnel did lead out of the prison. That little imp was right. Or was he? Yeah, I'm pretty sure he was.
