I was messing around today with a possibile impromtu game happening here in the next couple fo days where I may get the chance to play a few characters. So I needed a couple that I thought might be fun to play simulatneously. My first thought was a Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser sort of team, but as this was a Risus game, I thought I needed to take it a step more in the outrageous direction. That idea came to become the duo listed below. Brak a strong muscled man with a heart of gold and his traveling companion Henley, a chubby, fast talking, happy-go-lucky hobbit.
Tall, short cropped blonde hair, handsome, ripping with muscles, able to run across the plains for hours, Brak prefers the outdoors and loves his oversized dual hammers…almost to a questionable point. As a child he had dreamed of becoming his people’s famous poet and retelling their tales of daring-do and saving the dasmels, however, a short stint in a slave pit changed all that and he learned to fight and kill, but he would rather be writting a poem than smashing in a head….unless a sexy lady is in need of saving.

Hopelessly Lovelorn Poet(3)
Excellently Skilled Horseman(2)
The Leader of the Slave Pit Slaves (1)
A young and smallish hobbit with a a bit of a mead gut. He always wears a smile, is happy go lucky, looking for the next chance to strike it rich, a little witty and always checking out the ladies. Only time his attitude will change is when he realizes his friends are in serious danger. Would much rather be swindling a rich merchant out of his wagonload of goods than treking through a dark, damp dungeon and often finds himself on the lamb from the authorities in numerous lands.
