Mini Six Character: Eldryn of Kent

Wherein your humble scribe presents an NPC for Anglia – the 100 Years War/Dark Fairy Tale England setting he busted out on the unsuspecting Mini Six players a few weeks back. Will anything further come of it? Who the hell knows? 🙂

A hardened veteran of many campaigns against the French, Eldryn of Kent settled down upon reaching his 46th year and now serves as a the captain of the guard for the inland trade center of Creighton. The sandy-haired, grey-eyed Eldryn possesses a few scars, but his handsome features remain mostly as they appeared when he was a younger man. Though unmarried, he enjoys the attentions of many of Creighton’s wealthier merchant’s daughters. An accomplished soldier and leader of men, it is generally assumed that Eldryn will eventually be named mayor of the town. Even those who should by all rights despise the man find that they are instead completely taken with him. How it is he came to know so much of the language of the fairies of the wood is a story even the gregarious captain himself never seems to get around to sharing.

    Hey, is this sort of like For Faerie, Queen and Country? Never played it (or any of the Amazing Engine stuff), but I’ve always liked this taken on the British Isles and magic.

      You know, I never played FFQ&C or any of the AE stuff either. I’ve never even read it, so I can’t guess how similar or dissimilar this actually is. I’m more than willing to admit it’s far from a novel idea, though 🙂

      Of course, I don’t think FFQ&C had French soldiers riding giant ants into battle as they invaded England…

          I’m definitely divergent from FFQ&C then, since we’re pretty safely in the Late Middle Ages for this setting. But still, England + Faeries Real = Pao is entirely unoriginal, but having fun 🙂
