A really quick sketch to say THANK YOU!
It’s insane for me that within two, maybe four days so many people began to follow me (like 100 ppl???). IT’S SO CRAZY!
I don’t even know WHY you are following such a miserable artist like me ;;;;;;
Anyway THANK YOU AGAIN SO MUCH!
So I recently joined a new campaign, and we just had our first session. We have a dragonborn fighter (me), a shardmind bard, a human psion, and a fey raccoon sorcerer. The raccoon is currently sitting on the dragonborn’s head bluffing everyone successfully that he is actually a hat.
NPC who hired us: So you guys will need magical protection from the forest’s enchantment. I have these tokens here that will keep your sense of direction intact. (Gives one to the three of us).
Raccoon (texted): Hey can you get me one too?
Me (texted): Umm I’ll try.
Me: So… can I have a token for my hat?
NPC: Your… hat?
Me: Umm yeah, I just want to make sure it doesn’t get lost either, you know?
Shardmind: It’s a very important hat, very sentimental to her. (Succeeds the bluff)
NPC: Uhhh… ok then….
I put the token on top of the “hat” and then later the raccoon proceeds to eat it. Luckily it’s an area of effect enchantment.
So, I’ve been thinking about my jumbled mess of notes for about an hour now and want to go over this one first.
I don’t look super into fact when making theories, obviously, so here’s just what I noticed, and a headcannon I guess. Ha ha this is going to be a long post
once vomited on one of my subordinates in the face. Now I have Flug”
I very strongly believe the skull in Black Hat’s hand in the person (now passed) he vomited on, and that Flug is said dude’s replacement. (Not some hint to why Flug wears a bag)
Also, male pronouns are how I usually address someone who’s not real who could be either gender. I may say things like “dude” and “guy” but the skull could also belong to a woman.
ANYWAY, some bullet points
Black Hat can get sick (Evil Flu, and I’d guess he threw up from being sick)
Black Hat KEPT the skull of the person he threw up on (possibly)
The skull is RED (Could be dyed, but could also be inhuman)
Skull is kept in work space that is very sparsely decorated (his desk)
Black Hat has no problem throwing the skull around
So this is what we know.
Now, I’d say this person in particular was important to Black Hat for a simple reason. The skull is not only kept, but is kept on his work space.
Maybe he keeps the skull of everyone else who’s worked for him? But I think we’re all pretty positive Black Hat has been around for a LONG time, he’d have more skulls. And even if he did, why is this one on his desk?
Another thing, Black Hat’s tone when saying these lines sound… Bitter. Especially about having Flug now. I love Paperhat but MAN does Black Hat just sound irritated about having FLUG over this other guy.
So, again WHY THIS GUY and NO ONE ELSE? Who is he? Why is he so important to Black Hat?
Did Black Hat mean to kill him? Was it an accident? Why would Black Hat throw up? Why would he so causally mention it?
