Sidekicks & Sidequests

Building a world, one character at a time.


  1. This is a character Michael Horsley randomly generated using my tables
  2. What is this character’s name? - Dolly
  3. What is their ancestry (i.e. human, elf, dwarf, halfling, etc)? - Treeant
  4. What is your job or role (i.e. farmer, hierling/mercenary, shopowner, bandit, etc)? - Cartographer
  5. How old are you? - Immortal
  6. Describe your physical appearance. - A feminine treeant, she looks similar to a massive, 100 ft. coastal redwood tree
  7. Describe yourself with 3 adjectives. - Slow, Wise, Rough/Gruff (she's seen it all)
  8. What is a valuable item/piece of lore/secret that this character possesses? Or do they value an ideal/concept or particular person (i.e. family member, guild member, honor, justice, love etc.) - A healing potion
  9. What is a particular quest you would be willing to recruit or hire the player characters to go do? - To cause a distraction to help save her forest and her people
  10. What would be their reward for succeeding? - Willing to provide a rare map or perhaps pass on her healing potion. Certainly, the heroes gain a valuable ally in an ancient being who has vast knowledge of the local area, a maker of maps, and her group of treeants would be much friendlier to them.
  11. What would be the consequence of failure or refusing the call? - The forest is invaded by a foreign group and exploited/destroyed. Perhaps the heroes in their mission are captured or killed.
