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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Maura is an architect and inventor from the city of Yllons. She has traveled to Vusseaux to petition the Duke of Plonesse for an investment in her research into the creation of flying machines.

Like his twin sister Clarisse, Arnaud grew up on the streets of Vusseaux as an orphan. His quick mind and charming ways served him well as he navigated the underside of the city. Though prone to believe the claims and stories of others, he himself is an inveterate liar. He now works for Albaño de Calixto, an Alcázaran merchant with a dubious reputation.

Like her twin brother Arnaud, Clarisse grew up on the streets of Vusseaux. Her strong back and fearless nature made her an excellent brigand. She easily sees through her brother’s lies, but had to admit that his plan to work for the Alcázaran merchant Albaño de Calixto was an easier way to make a living.
