Due to his low standing in the succession Spoonly decided to pursue a life as an adventurer extraordinaire and hero to the common folk of this world. Fiercely proud of his heritage, Spoonly will hear nothing against himself or his family. This, combined with his short temper and vengeful attitude has hampered his quest and meant he’s had to venture further afield to try to find somewhere with people who will ignore his flaws and revere him as the hero he undoubtedly is. Believes he has been chosen and blessed by Raluf, The Happy Cloud, God of Love (Played by Steve, Ayr team)

Tang Kard – (Lvl 2 Human Fighter): Ex gladiator – was introduced to the West Marches beating up fist fighters in a ring for money – and complete tank.

(Played by Steve, Edinburgh team)

Inactive Characters:

Biblical Barry – (Lvl 2 Forest Gnome Druid): A disheveled desert mystic who lived among and became a shaman to the perceived violent dune dancers, is a bit…off.

Perhaps the answer to the present may be found in the past…his family, if any yet live… ( Played by Steve Chaffee, Edinburgh team)
