Back when I was trying to get a roleplay server going, I’d decided I wanted to use Pippi’s thespians and Mushi system to liven up the map with some NPCs that players could interact with. I’ve since abandoned the roleplay angle, but since I’d still like for other people to play on the server once the mod loading rolls out (and since it’s fun) I kept going with the NPC idea. So, I thought I’d share some of what I have so far.
Look everyone, it’s our favorite robust-haired, thesaurus-abusing Conan knockoff, Grignr!
I feel like I need to give his dialogue a couple more passes before the server goes public, to better capture that distinctive Eye of Argon flavor. He gives a quest to find his main wench Carthena, who is hanging out somewhere in the Exiled Lands. I’m not posting a screenshot of her because that would be cheating.
Also hanging out in Sepermeru is the server’s other crossover character, Red Sonja:
This mod includes a set of her armor, so I couldn’t resist. And if you sweet talk her, she might be willing to sell you a spare set:
(All NPC transactions are made using Pippi currency.)
Outside Sepermeru one can find Kofi, the friendly exile from Kush:
He’s very generous with his food. Also if you dig through his stuff while he’s not looking you’re a jerk.
(Also fun fact, apparently the term for a person from Kush is not allowed on these forums. Um…okay…?)
And then we have the worst brothel in the Exiled Lands:
It’s run by Lady Thurma, who gives an open-ended quest to bring her necromancy supplies in return for (Pippi) money.
And finally we have Abigail of Shem, professional grave robber:
If you find her at her base camp, she’ll sell you a sweet set of burial armor:
Or, if you’re not in the market for something that’s been pried off a moldy old corpse, she also sells Cimmerian steel and fur armor. (You may be asking now, wait a minute, that’s epic armor! Won’t that create a massive PvP imbalance if anyone can just buy it from an NPC? To which I say it’s PvE, so who cares.)
So, those are my main NPCs so far. I have a few others scattered around the map as well, but I want to leave some surprises in case I’m able to get anyone to play on this server.
