“Who is that? And What is that with him?” Jed looked worried as the two and a half foot figure, clearly a halfling, was followed in to the bar by a seven foot winged furred creature with multiple arms and a nasty set of horns.
“Word about town is he is some sort of historian.” Mel looked uncertain as she tried to glance at the pair without being seen. “But I saw them when they came into town. That thing was coated in blood and the halfling was shouting and berating him for not having cleaned himself up properly since the asylum.” She let the remainder of her thoughts go unvoiced as the halfling looked in her direction and beamed her a portrait perfect smile.
“Whatever they are, I hope the guards run them out of town sooner rather than later. I don’t need my milk turning sour if you know what I mean.” Jed stood and left a full ale on the table leaving inconspicuously by the back door.
“Whatever the pair were up to it is going to make for an interesting few days” thought Mel as she moved to follow him. Draining her and his ales first of course. A girl has priorities.
Pathfinder Encounters: Coltyn and Grellyk CR 6
I may never get to play this pair again as our Rise of the Runelords game seems to have taken a long term break. So instead I am going to offer them up to you all! Here is a pair that is controlled by a 2 and a half foot insane person. Insane for power that is… Have your group met and questioned by Coltyn and Grell (Grell is totally naive but fiercly protective of Coltyn) as Coltyn is seeking for information about the ruins they just visited or something similar.
I suggest he approaches them in a bar (Coltyn loves to do this as he feels it makes him approachable) and I am linking to Matt Jackson’s blog for the Broken Gnome map here. If you are a supporter on Patreon I would really recommend you supporting Matt as his maps are great and I really try to emulate his style often.
Below are the stats for first Coltyn (who should be played a little unbalanced and totally self absorbed) and then Grell (the poor unfortunate innocent killing machine). Know that Coltyn is likely to go to any ends to get what he wants…
