Friends, Foes & Followers — Part 14
March 16, 2017
Friends, Foes & Followers is a GM resource that uses a common format for presenting 2 pages of information about a character. The characters can be used in any way the GM sees fit; as NPC opponents, helpers or even emergency PCs for that unexpected player, making these resources no GM should be without.
Special thanks goes out to Rob Barnes, who sponsored all of the art by the always amazing Richard Luschek. The illustrations were originally created for Rob’s Lynnfana Hundred campaign. They include two characters familiar to fans of The Earl’s Progress. It is my pleasure to add them to FFF for use by GMs.
This instalment contains:
- a young, wealth widow Perfumer
- a tough, female, talbar (riverboat) captain
- an attractive thespian
- an arrogant, noble bailiff, Sir Andro Valador, antagonist from The Earl’s Progress (q.v.)
- a herald and chamberlain, Sir Gorlin Farafgar, important NPC from The Earl’s Progress (q.v.)
- a Laranian knight inquisitor from a secret order
- an Agrikan knight / spy mascarading as a Halean knight on the jousting circuit
- his faithful Agrikan squire
- an Ilviran priest with a club foot
You will note there are only nine characters in this edition. FFF 13 (Gargun Edition) had 15 characters, and the reduced number of characters in FFF 14 is to balance the two issues out to the average of twelve characters per issue.

Menema Regional Map
March 13, 2017
The Menema Regional Map bundle contains three files. These are a PNG image of a regional map of Menema in Hepekeria done in the same style as the Harn, Ivinia, Shorkyne, and Trierzon regional maps produced by Columbia Games. Also included is a Microsoft publisher file with the same image sized and tiled to be printed out on multiple A4 pages and stuck together to produce a regional map of the same scale as the originals. Finally, the package also includes an incomplete Menema index. This lists all the features on the map, but provides little information other than the title, nature, and grid reference for each feature. You will have to complete the content yourself.

A selection of minor psionic artifacts, probably of Earthmaster origin, that might be found as treasure if generous GMs feel they are appropriate. Feel free to make any adjustments to the suggested power settings.

The achievements of sixteen major knights of Rethem who are the bailiffs or constables of keeps, holding these strongholds for the great clans of the kingdom. Others are sheriffs/constables appointed by the king. This rascally bunch also includes several knights holding the largest number of manors in the kingdom outside of the great clans.
