DF Felltower NPC: Arn Ulfgard

A rare double post today - because I had a Felltower guy I wanted to post, as well.

No game this week, so it's another Felltower NPC this Sunday.

Arn Ulgard was a volunteer hireling who died in Felltower from the hobgoblins' weapon blows and monster drool doses. He was based on the Brute template from Dungeon Fantasy 15 but didn't quite measure up to a full 125 points - basically he doesn't have any optional points spent on advantages, and an extra -1 to IQ (but +1 Will), pushing him down to about 85 points.

For more pre-made henchmen from my game, check the DF Henchmen page.

Arn Ulfgard

Arn is a veteran warrior from the northern wastes. He's a veteran seaman, but he found his way inland (and upriver) to Stericksburg over the course of a few years of mercenary work and bad decisions. He's not desperate so much as confident of his abilities, and will volunteer or hire on to expeditions to earn himself some cash.

    1. It wasn't intentional, but it's possible your name stuck in my head somewhere and popped up while I was handing out names on the fly.

      That said, maybe I should name NPCs after people who read the blog . . .

  2. I think I might steal this guy for my next LotFP session! PS as a GM now this whole subsection is great, thanks Peter!
