BoL Character: Paragon

Wherein your humble scribe presents a Barbarians of Lemuria character he put together based on the theoretical protagonist of the classic pinball games Lost World and Paragon.

Descending from the cave cities of the Golden Cliffs, to challenge the dragons of Pal, comes Paragon! Cursed with a chaotic touch of blood madness by the demon Gorgar after defeating the denizens of the Valley of Demons, Paragon stands out from the rest of humanity due to his powerful bat-like wings.

At the edge of the great waterfall, Paragon saved the life of Princess Balli, rescuing her from the slavering jaws of The Beast. Now, despite the reticence of King Faris, Paragon serves as her personal champion (and consort, oh yeah).

What bold adventures will Paragon face in the future? Will the king tire of his daughter’s infatuation with the untamed barbarian? None can say, except perhaps for the foul Gorgar, who still has plans for the bat-winged warrior…

BRP Character: Nishikado Tomohiro

Wherein your humble scribe presents an NPC for use with Basic RolePlaying.

Lieutenant Nishikado Tomohiro is a laser tank commander in the Earth Defense Force’s 2nd Armored Division, tasked with protecting the planet from the waves of alien invaders that plague life in the 22nd Century.

Nishi, as his friends and crew-mates call him, is a true soldier who takes his role as a defender of humanity very seriously. He is constantly thinking about how best to approach the challenges of fending off the threat of attack from space. He is also mildly obsessed with the mystery of the strange spacecraft that occasionally pass by to observe the status of the invasion. Nishi is certain that the unknown beings in these ships hold the key to vitory in this endless war. Lt. Tomohiro spends the precious few moments of downtime engaged in a recurring poker game with the men of his platoon.

BRP Character: Sergeant Frank “Nails” Braddock

Wherein your humble scribe presents an NPC for use with Basic RolePlaying.

Like his nickname, Sergeant Frank “Nails” Braddock is as tough as they come. But it’s not easy being a squad leader in November Company – not with the Desert Fox panting down your neck and the sand and heat dogging your every step. Still, just like his pop before him, the son of Colonel Nathaniel “Tombstone” Braddock knows that man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do. And in 1943 that means that brave men must do their part and stand up to the Axis so that world can be made safe for truth and justice.

BRP Character: Fujiwara Shigeki

Wherein your humble scribe presents an NPC for use with Basic RolePlaying.

Fujiwara Shigeki is world renown as the lunatic daredevil who will scale any building, anywhere, regardless of the dangers involved. His broken English, his emphatic shouts of “Go For It!” when confronted with a challenge, and his obsession with Henry Mancini’s “Baby Elephant Walk” have endeared him to his fans across the globe. This absurd ascender is currently in training to tackle four skyscrapers in Chicago, where he plans to offer his fans a chance to impede his efforts by throwing flower pots, buckets of water and fruit at him from various windows throughout the structures.

BRP Character: Edwina Lyselle Sirolangg

Wherein your humble scribe presents an NPC for use with Basic RolePlaying.

Edwina Lyselle Sirolangg is a freelance pilot and entrepreneur who makes her living clearing the space lanes of debris left over from the various planetary collisions that frequently occur throughout the densely packed AT4-R1 sector. And though most people think she is just “a little off” from having spent too much time alone blasting the big rocks into dust, Edie swears she has seen alien spacecraft out there in the ‘stroid Fields. She doesn’t quite know why, but she “feels” that the aliens come from a planet called Vekt’aar. At least, that’s what the voices in her head seem to be telling her, when she can hear them over the “heartbeat” of her ship.

BRP Character: Secret Agent G-6155

Wherein your humble scribe presents an NPC for use with Basic RolePlaying.

Secret Agent G-6155 (codename “Interceptor”) is one of the most respected wheelmen working for the Agency. He is an outstanding driver and a fair shot with the weapons that are frequently built into the types of cars used by the Agency. Interceptor is cool under fire, even when his arch nemesis, “The Mad Bomber” takes to the skies in his custom helicopter in an effort to destroy G-6155. The agents of FANGS are all well aware of Interceptor’s skills and do their best to drive him off the road whenever this spy hunter winds up on their tail.

BRP Bestiary: Tsu’ojian Pterodactyl

These giant predators are powerful fliers, and are often far more intelligent than expected. They terrorize the lands surrounding the lava fields of Tsu’oj. Only the Sky Knights of Roheisia are able to keep these beasts at bay.

Tsu’ojian Pterodactyls attack with their powerful jaws and, less frequently, by raking with their claws as they swoop down upon their prey.

BRP Character: Python Dyel, Sky Knight

Wherein your humble scribe presents an NPC for use with Basic RolePlaying.

Python Dyel is a Sky Knight in service to King Foucaut of Roheisia. On the back of his faithful airstrich Leuruna he patrols the skies over the kingdom, defending the crown’s possessions against the buzzaird-riding Shadow Lords and the giant pterodactyls that raid from their aeries in the floating islands above the lava fields of Tsu’oj.

Dyel is known among the Sky Knights as a loyal companion with a dry sense of humor and an almost telepathic link with his airstrich. Though most of his order find him a bit aloof, they all know they can count on him when trouble strikes in the deadly skies.
