OK, my party is finalized:

  • Virkoan the Lost is an Humakti and a smith. He's been found on the banks of the Creek at 8 years-old, multilated (tortured) and without any memory of his previous childhood. He's been adopted by Orkarl Iron-Beard...
  • Knut the Navigator is an Issaries and a boatman, and he's also an initiate of Wandle;
  • Ardias Yversson is a horse breeder and an initiate of Orlanth Adventurous. He's the nephew of Enerin, head of the Bolthoring bloodline;
  • Ragnar the Quiet is a Yinkin hunter, son of Voranga Many-Sorrows and Frekor Deep-Woods. He's the best friend of Olaf (see below);
  • Olaf Numbskull is a stickpicker and an initiate of Valind. He's also some kind of the clan's idiot. He doesn't quiet understand what's the problem with Valind... He is protected by Byrgga Told-You-So (a midwife from The Book of the Red Cow, I made an old Korne of her) and in love with an Ernalda's young healer (yes, Olaf is a very strong and handsome boy...);
  • Janeera Wolf-Head is an initiate of Babeester Gor. Both her parents were killed by telmori. She's been adopted by Griselda Grey-Tresses;
  • and last, we have an Eurmali girl (sorry, the player is still looking for a suitable name...), both Informer/Spy and Godi. She's bonded to Broddi of course and has been "initiated" by Janara the Black (Queen Ivartha's bonded trickster). And she's Broddi's own daughter...

Of course, the players invented far more details (three pages for Olaf!!!). I wanted to make it short, but also to share these guys. Maybe you'll find them useful as NPC in your own Red Cow campaign (or any other...)???

1st session last night, much fun!!! All players were present, except for the Babeester Gor. We played of course The Missing, and of course nothing went as the scenario planned! 😁


I spare you the details, but the party managed to free the missing children and made a deal with Wandle. The waters are drinkable again, but they made an oath to renew the clan's relationship with Wandle by heroquesting This World. Farnantyr was drowned by Wandle... Finally the party was very careful and avoided any fight, neither with the Lunars nor the Emerald Sword (they were much creative in their management of the scenario, and deserved the issue anyway).

They all cared much about their clan's safety, even the Valindir and the Eurmali, and the party had much roleplay. Maybe a bit confused by HQ narrative rules, but as the session went on, they became more and more comfortable and creative, so quite a good RP night.

Next session in two weeks. They'll have to perform the This World heroquest for Wandle. I'm already working on the scenario: I'll take the scene of the encounter with Wandle from The Stealing of the Giant's Cows heroquest, and probably a bit from the french Les héritiers de Zola Fel HW book. And embroider from the heroes' backgrounds and actions of course!!! If you have any suggestion of course... 😉

One last word: thanks Ian Cooper for this amazing campaign!!!!! 🥰

She was obviously protecting or losing her virginity... depending on people’s views of Babeester Gor and celibacy

Oups! Made a mistake on Zola Fel's bool title (now edited!), sorry. I precise that Les héritiers de Zola Fel is a french HW campaign (edited by Multisim), freely inspired from In Troubled Waters, the campaign of RQ River of Cradles.

I can't wait to run this campaign again (and This World heroquest). Next session planned in two weeks!

And for the Babeester Gor, she was probably puppeteered by the Red Cow priestress of Ernalda, Darna Longcoat, on some blackmail debt recovery or another...  😵
