Are your NPC rosters skewing awfully young? Got a dozen Obachans kicking around in your head? Have I got a Miscellany for you! This Miscellany is called “Three Dozen Notable People over 50.” Submissions need to be a single sentence, or 2-3 short sentences. By submitting here, you’re agreeing to let us use it (you’ll get a credit on the issue). We’re looking for evocative things; the purpose of the miscellany is to inspire the reader.
Here are some examples:
“Consuelo hasn’t done much fieldwork since that incident in ‘76, but she’s fluent in six modern and three ancient languages and’s seen just about every kind of monster you’re likely to run into out there. Don’t bother asking her what happened though, the story’s different every time.”
“No one loves a well-written clause like the fae, and when they need a contract drawn up or a loophole closed, they turn to Mel Webb. Webb was human at the start, at least, though aging gracefully may be part of their retainer. They’ve been popping up with the same frost white hair and silver-headed cane for at least fifty years now.”
“Apelu Toleafoa was never top of the card, but he’s been with the promotion since it started and trained half the current roster. It’s damn near criminal it took them this long to put him in charge of developmental.”
P.S. If you want to be credited as something other than the name on your forum profile, let me know! DMs here or on Slack (@ryanm) are fine for that, but please keep submissions in this thread.
