Apple Lane Characters

These are the important NPC’s in Apple Lane (Except Gringle & Quackjohn, who are given in Gringle’s Pawn Shop). I have given the appropriate magic keywords, Occupational keywords (underlined) and any important additional skills together with some suggested ratings. Narrators should feel free to adjust any of these numbers to fit in with their own campaigns. Where necessary, I have also added some brief notes of explanation.

Magic and Occupational Keywords are taken from Storm Tribe and Thunder Rebels

Piku Gastapakis, Third Eye Blue smith

(Third Eye Blue are a sorcerous people, although not Orthodox Malkioni. They stole the secret of working all kinds of metals from the Mostali. These abilities are held in the Grimoire “The Secrets of the Metal” and are keyed to the Smiths tattooed 3rd Eye. Spells are similar to those in Gustbran’s “Bronze” affinity, but there are spells for all types of metal.

Piku also knows the Grimoire “The Secrets of the Forge”, from which he summoned the creature that pumps his bellows. His Pommel shaping song is a stand alone spell)

The Ulerians

(Uleria is the Goddess of Love in all its forms (from pure, chaste love to wild uncontrollable lust) – She is a Great Goddess, though not a part of the Storm Tribe, but the Orlanthi recognise her power (although few worship her directly – cults like Niskiss and Vela generally provide access to the powers they need). Subcults of Uleria may offer affinities like Harmony, Fertility or even Matchmaking. I have left Feats to the imagination of the individual Narrator)
