BoL: Pregens for The Valley of the Ravenous

As noted previously, I’ll be running a couple of Barbarians of Lemuria (Mythic Edition) games at North Texas RPG Con. Below you’ll find the pregens for the first game, The Valley of the Ravenous. If you’re planning on being at the con and playing, don’t commit these to memory as they may change a little bit. But for the most part, these will be the characters involved.

Meloria / Lifeblood 10 / Composure 3 / Hero Points 5 / Fate Points 3
Attributes: Strength 0 Agility 1 Mind 1 Appeal 2
Combat Abilities: Initiative 0 Melee 1 Ranged 1 Defense 2
Careers: Noble 0, Priest 3, Scholar 1, Farmer 0
Boons: Inspire, Silver Tongue
Flaws: Fear of Snakes
Languages: Lirian, Gutterspeak, Thaxian, Zaaric, Kellic, Geiric
Equipment: Staff (d6), Dagger (d6L), Light Armor (d6-3)

The youngest daughter of a minor noble family in Liria, Meloria has dedicated herself as a priestess of Estiel, the Lirian goddess of the moon. Where it only served to aggravate her entirely unpleasant sisters, her natural charm has made her a favorite of the temple’s elders, whom she now sees as her real family.

Davanzato / Lifeblood 11 / Composure 3 / Hero Points 5 / Craft Points 2
Attributes: Strength 1 Agility 0 Mind 2 Appeal 1
Combat Abilities: Initiative 1 Melee 1 Ranged 1 Defense 1
Careers: Soldier 0, Scholar 1, Healer 1, Alchemist 2
Boons: Keen Eyesight, Friends in Low Places
Flaws: City Dweller
Languages: Lirian, Gutterspeak, Thaxian, Zaaric, Kellic, Geiric, Alchemical Symbology
Equipment: Sword (d6+1), Crossbow (d6), Light Armor (d6-3)
Alchemical Items: Potion of Prowess, Potion of Precision, Sky Eye

Davanzato is an alchemist & artificer from Liria. His patron is Ceria, the Lirian goddess of knowledge and aqueducts. During his brief time in the Esercito Guardia of the city state, he came to know quite a few individuals who would come to be prominent in the underworld.

Aevar / Lifeblood 15 / Composure 3 / Hero Points 5
Attributes: Strength 3 Agility 1 (0) Mind 0 Appeal 0
Combat Abilities: Initiative 1 Melee 2 Ranged 1 Defense 0 (1)
Careers: Barbarian 2, Hunter 1, Thief 0, Gladiator 1
Boons: Alert, Mighty Fists, Hard to Kill

Languages: Geiric, Gutterspeak, Lirian
Equipment: Axe (d6+3), Dagger (d6L+3), Sling (d6L+1), Light Armor (d6-3), Large Shield (+1 Def vs all attacks/round)

Aevar is a fierce warrior from Geirbjornhal who often calls upon Brogdr, the Geirbjornhaller god of strength and war. After arriving in the “civilized” south, Aevar’s criminal career was cut short and he paid his “debt” by entertaining crowds as a gladiator in the grand colosseum of Liria.

Timandra / Lifeblood 10 / Composure 3 / Hero Points 5
Attributes: Strength 0 Agility 2 Mind 1 Appeal 1
Combat Abilities: Initiative 1 Melee 1 Ranged 1 Defense 1
Careers: Merchant 1 Sailor 0 Scholar 1 Thief 2
Boons: Deft Hands, Escape Artist, Tools of the Trade
Flaws: Greedy, Untrustworthy
Languages: Thaxian, Gutterspeak, Lirian, Kellic, Geiric
Equipment: Sword (d6), Dagger (d6L), Light Armor (d6-3)

Timandra hails from Thaxos, where her greed earned her a reputation she couldn’t shake. She now makes her way in the world by taking anything that isn’t nailed down. Though hardly much of a mariner herself, she still calls on Rasos, the Thaxian god of the sea, in times of trouble.

Keziah / Lifeblood 10 / Composure 3 / Hero Points 5
Attributes: Strength 0 Agility 1 Mind 1 Appeal 2
Combat Abilities: Initiative 1 Melee 0 Ranged 1 Defense 2
Careers: Dancer 2, Priest 0, Assassin 2, Alchemist 0
Boons: Master of Disguise, Poison Resistance
Flaws: Zealot
Languages: Zaaric, Gutterspeak, Thaxian, Lirian
Equipment: 2 Daggers (d6L – or d6 if dual), 3 Darts (d6L), Light Armor (d6-3)

Keziah grew up among the nomads of Zaar. She was groomed by the priests of her people to serve as an instrument of divine justice against their enemies. She regularly swears oaths to Ghev, the Zaari god of the sun.

Eogan MacGill / Lifeblood 12 / Composure 3 / Hero Points 5
Attributes: Strength 2 Agility 2 (1) Mind 0 Appeal 0
Combat Abilities: Initiative 0 Melee 1 Ranged 2 Defense 1
Careers: Bard 0, Mercenary 2, Beastmaster 2, Healer 0
Boons: Beast Friend, Thick Skin, Fearless
Flaws: Taciturn, Cannot Lie
Languages: Kellic, Lirian, Gutterspeak
Equipment: Sword (d6+2), Bow (d6+1), Medium Armor (d6-2+1), Small Shield (+1 Defense vs 1 attacker/round)

A son of mist-shrouded Kel, Eogan lacks the charm and good nature that are common to his fellow Kelmen. He finds the best companions are those who communicate without words. When pressed, Eogan sings hymns to Dynan, the Kellic god of wine and song and Mael Mav, the Kellic goddess of war.

      C’mon, man. Book a flight!

      But seriously, I’m glad they’re interesting to ya! Wish you could be there for one, the other, or both.

    I think I remember this fantasy world–the Celtic and Roman analogues, anyways. Awesome as ever, V.P.
    (I’m out of beer puns today, lucky for you).

      Aw, shucks. Thanks, G. Yeah, this is Kaalmuria, essentially my knockoff Hyboria complete with multiple city states/countries of obvious analogues. It gets the job done.

      Out of beer puns? I’ll drink to that!
