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? 🙂
Meudwy Caerwyn, or Caerwyn the Hermit, makes his home in a cave nearly a day’s walk east of Dinas Tylluan. This strange old man – not unfriendly, just very odd – avoids the company of men whenever possible, preferring instead to spend his days talking with the beasts and birds of the valley. He hunts when necessary, but more often subsists on hearty root vegetables he finds in the nearby forest. Caerwyn loves to tell the story of the time he mistook the fairy ring for regular mushrooms and the bickering that took place amongst the pixies when they found their meeting place had become a delectable stew. The hermit doesn’t quite know how close he came to death that night, which might explain why he sleeps so well at night.

I love a good hermit!
Especially mad ones who run about with moss in their beards, having seemingly meaningful conversations with sparrows and newts. This is actually what I hope to be when I’m an old man 🙂
