Building a world, one character at a time.


  1. This is a character that Nolan Paige brought and we randomly generated the name and ancestry/race.
  2. What is this character’s name? - Noodle
  3. What is their ancestry (i.e. human, elf, dwarf, halfling, etc)? - Human
  4. What is your job or role (i.e. farmer, hierling/mercenary, shopowner, bandit, etc)? - Beekeeper
  5. How old are you? - Upper middle-aged, 50 to 60 years old
  6. Describe your physical appearance. - Average height, stout, strong, thinning hair but a good beard. Wears beekeeping robes. He carries a censer to help control the bees.
  7. Describe yourself with 3 adjectives. - Gruff, Neighborly, Dedicated
  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.) - The bees that he cares for (maybe because of the censer, the type of bees they are, or some other reason) produce a magical honey that has similar effects to a basic healing potion or half of a basic healing potion.
  9. What is a particular quest you would be willing to recruit or hire the player characters to go do? - Kill the invasive giant wasps (murder hornets) from the forest that are attacking his bees.
  10. What would be their reward for succeeding? - He will reward the players with some of the magic honey.
  11. What would be the consequence of failure or refusing the call? - Noodle will appreciate the heroes' efforts in trying to stop the giant wasps. If the players fail to kill the giant wasps in time but save the hives from being completely destroyed, Noodle will no longer be able to produce magic honey; the most likely reason is it will take some time for Noodle to recover and he cannot produce any magic honey until the hives are returned to normal. If the players fail to kill the giant wasps and the hives are destroyed, Noodle will be forced to move in search of another queen to start beekeeping in a new area. If the players choose to ignore the problem of the giant wasps, not only will Noodle be ruined but nearby farms will start to lose livestock in greater and greater numbers to these insects. If the giant wasps are still not dealt with, the nearby town will become besieged by insects who will multiple to the point of overrunning and infesting the town.
