Evil Overlord -- Saltmarsh

By Matthew Hunter |  May 2, 2021  | eviloverlord, gaming
Saltmarsh is a small town, though still larger than Dunwitch. It is near the coast, with port facilities and a fishing fleet. The fleet sends its catch from both the ocean and the nearby salt marsh (for which the town is named) to Rookroost, providing a steady supply of seafood for those wealthy enough to afford it (and the necessary salt or preservation spells to preserve it). The road to town from Rookroost brings you to the top of a sea-facing cliff overlooking the town, and you can see the port itself laid out before you, with the bulk of town further inland on higher ground.

Evil Overlord -- Dunwich

By Matthew Hunter |  May 2, 2021  | eviloverlord, gaming
Characters begin in the small town of Dunwitch, named (according to local legend) for its founder, a nameless hag and healer who lived out her years as a hermit outside the nearby walled city of Rookroost. Her cures were so efficacious and her protective spells so potent that she soon had a thriving community established around her small forest hut. As the poor woman was nearly deaf and blind in her old age, she never quite realized.

By Matthew Hunter |  May 2, 2021  | eviloverlord, gaming
The City of Rookroost Rookroost is one of the bandit kingdoms, a city-state in barely civilized territory that exists in a state of low-level perpetual warfare with most of its neighbors and even its own residents.

Leadership Officially, the city follows General Perneti, who is in charge of the city guard.

Evil Overlord -- Elion

By Matthew Hunter |  Nov 18, 2020  | eviloverlord, gaming
Elion (Half-elven magic-user played by Jonathan) Elion wears both a robe and a cloak even while at sea, ensuring certain death by drowning in yards of soaked clothing should he fall overboard for longer than a few minutes without the rest of the party nearby to rescue him. He has few qualms about using his magic to influence his party members, though in his defense, a barbarian not under the influence of a Charm Person spell would likely kill him sooner.

Evil Overlord -- Kevin

By Matthew Hunter |  Nov 18, 2020  | eviloverlord, gaming
Kevin (Human druid played by Nathan) Traveled with the party from Rookroost to Castle Greyhawk. Decided he hated being a courier and took up a new career exploring dungeons. His personality has steadily evolved from happy-go-lucky nature druid to decidedly unhappy red of tooth and claw nature druid. But the Band of Misfits is all about making the world a better place, right?

Evil Overlord -- Kriselle

By Matthew Hunter |  Nov 18, 2020  | eviloverlord, gaming
Kriselle (Human Fighter played by Mary) Kriselle’s personality so far appears to consist of an inordinate curiosity about rot grubs and a knack for negotiations with merchants, leavened with a healthy respect for the dead that has helped her to avoid awkward moments like greeting a reborn Fred wearing his armor. In fact, her talent and desire for negotiation has expanded to favor negotiating on behalf of some of the creatures the party has come across in their travels, suggesting that if they harmless and pose no threat, it might not be necessary to exterminate them utterly and burn their corpses.

Evil Overlord -- Michael

By Matthew Hunter |  Nov 18, 2020  | eviloverlord, gaming
Michael (Human Cleric played by Larry) Michael is a mid level cleric and he’s fine with that. He’s older than some others and a wiser too. He’s also fairly charismatic, not enough to found his own cult, at least not yet, but enough to influence those he is close to and keep the attention of small crowds with short folksy homilies. His holy symbol is shaped like his favorite weapons, hammers.

Evil Overlord -- Peebles

By Matthew Hunter |  Nov 18, 2020  | eviloverlord, gaming
Peebles (A halfling priest played by Chris) Growing up in Elmshire is a quiet, peaceful life. Temperate climate and four distinct seasons, it’s everything a young hobbit could want. Peebles grew up happy, the fifth of seven children. He loved tending to fields and fern, but above all, other halflings. With his love for all living things, joining the priesthood of Yondalla was an easy choice. Serving until young adulthood, Peebles met Maeris Tosscobble at his first 26th birthday.

By Matthew Hunter |  Nov 18, 2020  | eviloverlord, gaming
Fydillian (A lupin priest played by Matt) Fydillian the brave is a lupin of the guardian class of shar-pei. Not much is known about his past, as his first memory is waking up on a beach with a no memory beyond that. Fortunately there was a note left with him explaining his name and race. The note vaguely mentioned a higher purpose and that he would know it when it arrived.

Evil Overlord -- Gunnar

By Matthew Hunter |  Nov 18, 2020  | eviloverlord, gaming
Gunnar (Human fighter played by Coby) Gunnar joined the party when they rescued him from a life of servitude and watery home improvement beneath the evil sahuagin. His past, for the moment, remains a mystery, though his travels with the party gained him experience enough to become a formidable fighter.
