I am making a preliminary test set of characters for each race. I have most named key figures needed to make the thing playable for NPCs (non- player-characters) this amounts to 5 for each race except preservers.
What I need is a name for a Barterer (shop keeper) for each race: human, troll, and wolfrider. This is the sixth NPC for each race. I have already selected the following for other positions:
Embala (for the test phase, as there is no healer among the wolfriders and I already have a sprite for her)
Old Maggoty (healer)
Minouche (Cook. I couldnt reallg think.of any other characters seen around Fire and Flight)
Great Hunter of Gotara
if you want to suggest names for the humans, or the barterers (shop keepers, but there isnt a proper word for it), please do!
there was Scruff, the doorkeeper
and there was Redrash (in a not quite canon story) who bartered with Cutter (and tried to cheat him)
actually Bearclaw was the "barterer" of the elves - got this "job" from his father after the Trolls were discovered ...
Bearclaw should definitely be the barterer, if you're going to not worry about the chronology, anyway. Bartering with him sounds a little scary, actually.
Yeah, I'm not too worried about chronology at this point. We just need some content that has some EQ feel to try it out. I'd say that if someone wants to go to the trouble, anything from Two-Spear up to... say Wild Hunt as it pertains to forests, Wolfriders, Forest Trolls, and Gotara-type humans would be OK in these initial phases, just as long as it has the feel of Wolfrider! / pre-Fire and Flight (I'm not burning down the forest at this point!
I'm going to start a thread on chronology, so that anyone who wants to can pipe in. I'm wondering how it should be treated myself.
