How Do You Solve A Problem Like Imelda?

August 31, 2014


So, because of someone I won’t name here we didn’t get to play. In place of a post about the game we will instead look at one of the characters. Namely the reason we didn’t get to play.

So without further ado, here’s Mack’s Nun…

Trinket: A tiny book with pages full of notes in a strange language.

Personality Trait
I’m oblivious to etiquette and social expectations.

Live and Let Live. Meddling in the affairs of others only causes trouble.

Nothing was more important than the other members of my order.

Now that I’ve returned to the world, I enjoy its delights a little too much.


Alright, so there’s her sheet. Before I got my hands on the full 5e PHB this entire debacle was going to be run in Pathfinder, where she was a crazy abomination of a barbarian. Of course the idea she spawned from was related to the image presented above as well, which of course screams Nun Monk, but Mack being Mack he wanted weirdness going on and the general feel of the standard Pathfinder monk didn’t really fit her. This is all beside the point. You make the system work for you, not the other way around.

A few simple notes: She is not a devotee to any of the standard Hollow Earth/Agarthan deities, no Mayanesque death worship or Nodens here, she follows a path of the One True God. Who that is, of course, is still up for debate. Her order is a small sect of insular and strict “Christians” that are all that’s left of a Spanish fleet that got lost. Very, very lost. So that sects interpretations of whatever biblical canon they may have had was rather… radical. She’s also, as far as she knows, the last of her order now. They all ded. Her Chain Fist there is just flavor, it’s really just a club that we’re describing as a bit of chain she’s got wrapped around one fist. Wham, ka-pow! And her small book is probably not a bible. Probably.

Expect Mack to maybe post some stuff for her in the future as well, he had a relatively large chunk of background written out for her. I told him I’d leave that for him to post.

Hopefully we get to do things tonight. Man you guys are so good at showing up, I swear to gods…
