After how many people liked my Ad Goblin, I decided to do a pass on some of the other NPCs from Heroes and Halfwits. These were a bit trickier since they don’t have players associated with them. So I decided to take other RT staff members and cast them in the rolls.
Quork is Gavin. I mean, big nose/beak, bird sounds, no one likes him. Easy.
Father Dori is Burnie. He’s the conscience of the group, patient with them and very caring about their well being.
Nah is Barbara. Barbara can exude a strength that is perfect for a hand to hand fighter like Nah.
Sanji was hard to cast, given the lack of respect the character received, its almost zealotry towards Bo and the eventual reveal. But I decided Lindsay was the best way to go. She’s so easy to make innocent looking but also crazy, which are the two biggest character traits for Sanji.
I’d like to eventually do the other Kenku, which will be Ray (because he’s dead) and Nah’s mother, who will Anna Hullum.
The plan is to eventually do sheets like I did for the Ad Goblin, both for all the NPCs and the PCs. I’m doing some commission work too so this will be an sporadic thing for right now. I’d like to have them all done before RTX. I’m thinking I might donate prints to art Sidequest auction, but we will see.

”Artist/Illustrator ROB DE BANK has created a rather wonderful piece of DAVID BOWIE art.
Rob says: ‘I painted a young David Bowie (the Hunky-Dory years) leaving his Bucolic English Country Side Home. He is going for a Minstrel walk with his pipe and acoustic guitar, dressed like a Pre-Raphaelite androgynous Dandy.’

(Ed. Just in case you thought David never smoked a pipe, you’d be wrong. He used a Bewlay…)”
