Legend of the Elipsicon

It's like playing a video game without the game! Updated Daily. Well, not anymore.

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.)

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.

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!

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.)

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."

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thursday, August 12, 2010


The son of the warden. Loves to run all along the prison halls, rattling his stick across the bars of the cells, making all of the prisoners smile at his youth and innocence.

Wednesday, August 11, 2010


The warden's half-brother. Visits often...as mandated by local law...usually for several years at a time. He has caused his brother much pain.

Tuesday, August 10, 2010


The warden. An upright, clean, pillar of the community kind of guy. Offers counseling to the prisoners. Has helped many a convict go straight.

Monday, August 9, 2010


An imp who lives in the thick walls of the prison. He would never tell you about the tunnel. Or would he? Probably not. He doesn't seem very cooperative.

Sunday, August 8, 2010


The youngest prisoner. He is often the target of good-natured prison pranks... and will bear the scars for life.

Saturday, August 7, 2010


Doing a short stretch for grand theft carriage. Begins almost every sentence with "When I get out..." Most of these sentences end with schemes that will probably land him back in jail.

Friday, August 6, 2010


Imprisoned for life: the dire consequences of his red communist dreams. Beware his indoctrination. No! Don't take the pamphlet. Stop it! What did I just say?! Ok, Sure. Just put it in the 'ol inventory. Perfect.

Thursday, August 5, 2010


No. He doesn't look familiar at all. Why do you ask? He's just a common tree-goblin with an uncommonly thick Scandinavian accent. He speaks constantly of the window of mystery.

Wednesday, August 4, 2010


Your neighbors. A relatively clever middle-aged couple and their two small children. The four of them happily share their well kept cell.

Tuesday, August 3, 2010


He's pretty short...maybe some sort of half-halfling. He wiles away the prison hours unsuccessfully attempting to train the plague-rats. Originally imprisoned for the possession and consumption of illegal and heretical herbs and spices, he claims to be handy with a sword and swears to aid you in your plans to escape.

Monday, August 2, 2010


In his own mind, he is the coolest inmate ever. If only the girls could get at him. He does seem to be pretty good at obtaining contraband items. Although, with this prison's unconscionable level of laxity, it's hard to imagine what sorts of things would be contraband in here.

Sunday, August 1, 2010


Guard: like most characters, he was born a prince, as an infant miraculously survived the massacre of the royal house, was found on the banks of a river by a nomadic band of barbarian gnomes, and was raised among them until a mysterious and cryptic man clad all in black appeared to guide him to his epic destiny. Often found chatting with former mayor about fishing and baseball.
