Due to a love of the source material, we decided to keep that each class in Plummet could only be played once. If a character dies or is retired then a new character cannot be that same class – this avoids repetition and makes each character and their abilities more precious to the mercenaries as a whole. Once all these classes are taken, we start again with a fresh list.
AJ is the host and producer of Pretending With Dice and creates additional images for us. With Penance, he has played the misunderstood musician, Ozmand, in Curse of Penance RPG
1. Igneous, the Geomancer, a dwarf. Considered something of a maverick by his traditional-minded father, for studying rocks instead of simply spending centuries mining them in search of gold, Igneous has traveled the land in search of interesting rock formations and crystals. Geology doesn’t come cheap, however, so he has occasionally had to resort to hiring himself out as a mercenary of sorts, in order to make ends meet. His pet rock, Chris, was acquired in the usual way, and sadly met a usual demise. Igneous’ whereabouts are unknown.
2. Slasher, the Berserker, a dwarf. A heavy drinking dwarf, Slasher ran into the group in Nerekhall
3. Professor Sinister, the Hexer, a human. The professor is an older man, deeply cynical and generally a malicious influence on those around.

3. Sylvian Whispersong, the Bard, an elf. Another idealistic character, Sylvian believed in the healing and soothing power of music to aid his adventuring. His chosen instrument was a djembe and he performs beat poetry.
4. Hugh Mann, the Bounty Hunter, an aarakocra. Mr Mann attempts to disguise his true nature, using his assumed name to convince others they see hands and arms rather than claws and wings.
5. Kireen the Elongated, the Rune Master, a halfling. Kireen is a very unusual character, we are unsure of his true shape, nature, or indeed, species.

1. Kubroq, the Wildlander, an aarakocra. Kubroq is a noble and proud Aarakocra, a lone wildlander with a penchant for shiny trinkets and glittery things. The advance of time had made Kubroq slightly world weary and he would often fall asleep standing up, so it was always hard to tell whether he was actually awake… is he listening to me or not?
2. Jasper, the Conjuror, a tabaxi. Jasper is a sleek and noble Tabaxi, with a deep loathing for all birds – including Aarakocra! This could spell friction between the mercenaries or indeed a general distraction while travelling!
