Friends, Foes & Followers — Parts 20 & 21

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 17 characters from Rob Barnes’ People of Ochrynn (q.v.), part of the Araka-Kalai Expansion series. These characters may be encountered on a visit to Araka-Kalai, but most have adventure hooks that might lead them to be encountered elsewhere. There are also 7 expansion characters that have some sort of connection to Ochrynn, but who live somewhere else.

This article is a collaborative effort between writers Kerry Mould and Rob Barnes. The art was sponsored by Rob Barnes (6), Kerry Mould (5), Tom Rodrigues (5), R. Airiq Williams (1), James Johnson (1), Chris Morris (1), Rex Loewen (1), Declan Page (1), Robin Owens (1), Chris Nugent (1), and Joe Adams (1). Kerry Mould did the layout.
