Roll.Hit.Die.’s DM has been playing Dungeons and Dragons off and on since the early 1980s, which makes him almost as old as he feels. When he’s not dungeon mastering, Henry is writing. His sad and silly words are scattered among many lesser-known and currently defunct literary journals, as well as places like McSweeney’s and Smokelong Quarterly—so he’s got that going for him. You can learn very little more about him at henrykivett.com.
Circle of the Moon Druid
Bloom witnessed the murder of her family as a young girl. There is nothing more important to her than protecting those in need, so she founded a hidden sanctuary to offer solace and safety to others. She seeks to create some peace in the war-torn land, but don’t let her compassion fool you—she’s clever, calculating, and not afraid to wildshape and swallow enemies whole if they get in her way.
Janos is a being of celestial bloodline who made an unsavory bargain with The Great Old Ones. He carries the weight of conflict between light and dark within himself, seeking power and riches to help those in need (including himself). He loves illusions, tricking foes, and using his charm to get what he wants—although it tends to get him in sticky situations when it comes to matters of the heart. The most important things to Janos are his pseudodragon Marvin, shiny things, and his companions. Yes, in that order.
Gloom Stalker Ranger
Sarbis is a triton scarred from the destruction of her undersea home and entire family. She is a stealthy, strategic ranger that prefers to hide in the shadows to strike down foes from a distance—making quick (and maybe violent) decisions to ensure that justice is served. She’s slow to trust, but has forged a deep respect for her traveling companions. Overall, she’s a true force to be reckoned with.
College of Whispers Bard
Peanut is a good-humored bard. His family was once extremely well-to-do and important in the social circles of Scribe’s Crossing. But his parents disappeared years ago and his sister left to seek her own fortune as a sellsword. Gregarious by nature, but lonely by circumstance, Peanut joined the party because it felt like something significant to do. His spontaneous songs are capable of inspiring, intimidating—and even wounding those who would cause harm to him, his friends, or his battle burrow Butters.
