    NPC Rogue's Gallery

    Hey guys. You know, I just realized that I spend HOURS of time looking for pre-generated NPCs all the time. I basically run a 1st and 2nd ed game, and as such I now find it nearly impossible to find many NPCs online. I have to make my own almost all the time. Thus, I had this idea. Why don't we create our own thread here of 1st ed pre-generated Greyhawk characters? We could do a 2nd ed too, but this is a fist ed area, so we'd have to confine ourselves to 1st here.

    Anyway, if there are others out there who, like me, like the idea of building a repository of NPCs, then this may be the place. Sound like a plan? If so, let's post some. I'll bet we can very quickly add such a font of NPCs as to really aid quite a few DMs out there.

    Altan Qorchi hails from the Plains of the Paynims . He was born in one of the many nomadic tribes that wander from the Plains to Western Ket. His ancestors as far as anyone can remember were always archers of the highest skill. His father , a hard task master , insisted on hours and hours of archery and sword practice every day. This training began at a very young age and continued until he reached the age of 15 where he was then considered an adult.
    He then was given a horse and weapons and when the tribe migrated to Ket during the dry season he joined the Ket military as a mercenary. What followed was 10 years of extremely difficult service. During this time he became stronger and more skilled with all his weapons. His prowess with a bow became something others talked about around the campfires at night. Greatly respected by his superiors he received the best of weapons , horses and equipment.
    Seeking more out of life than the harsh life of a mercenary he said farewell to the Ket military and began wandering the world in search of a higher purpose .


    GP: 610
    Gems/Jewelry: 10 (50gp value each)

    Notes to self:

    *This type of long bow (self or composite) always has a +3 bonus to hit targets. It acts as a normal magical bow, except when a sufficiently high number to hit is rolled. Then, the arrow it fires strikes directly at the target creature’s heart (if it has such), slaying the victim instantly. To hit numbers required for this attack are as follows:

    Opponent: Natural “To Hit” roll required
    Tiny: 17
    Small: 18-20
    Medium: 19-20
    Large+: 20
    Metal or stone* 20
    * If the foe is using a spell or device that has transformed him into this material.

    Excellent idea! People could do this for all of the game system forums. Cool
