Friends, Foes & Followers — Parts 17 & 18

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.

This ‘double’ issue (24 characters) includes 19 characters from Rob Barnes’ Lynnfana campaign. There are also 5 additional illustrations donated by Patrick Nilsson many, many years ago. They have been sitting on my hard drive waiting for an opportunity to do some evil!

This article is a collaborative effort by seven writers, Kerry Mould, Rob Barnes, Dave Mareske, Peter Veenstra, Sonia Handforth-Kome, Bill Gilsdorf and Scott Warner. The art was sponsored by Rob Barnes (19) and Patrick Nilsson (5). Kerry Mould did the layout. The article was illustrated by the talented artist, Richard Luschek.

  • a crossbowman on the run from his past
