I’m not sure how useful these little essays were from an RPG standpoint, but they were fun to write. The ladies in the illustration are, from left to right, Phoebe Dimmesdale from Jeffrey Wells’s story Mundementia One; an NPC created by Stan Taylor for the Narbonic playtests whose name I cannot, I’m embarrassed to say, remember; Helen Narbon, natch; and Imogene Frog, a character played by Jeffrey in the Narbonic playtests. Imogene and her henchman Titus, played by Jonathan Towne, eventually scored cameos in a later Narbonic storyline. Dave is under the sheet.
The three seated women represent the triple goddess in her personification as the Moirae, spinning, measuring, and cutting the thread of life. Imogene’s tea tray includes a single eye and tooth, a nod to the triple goddess as the Graeae.
No, seriously. This is the kind of thing I think is funny.
