Saw this inthe .pdf and had a total "Hey, it's that guy!" moment. :)

wv: ladju - probably the name of the poor overloaded chap in the pic

Enterprising adventurer - you could tell he's the cleric.

Medical bag. (healing and bandaids)

Umbrella (party support)

No dress sense (he's wearing penny loafers, a turban, and culottes).

Decent Strength (he's carrying some 75 lbs of encumberance gear on his back).

Heeeeeelllllo Bucky, Adherant of St. Rufus!

I was lucky enough to find "Ladju" amongst a collection of public domain clip art and he just looked like some miserable hireling being dragged along on an adventure.

The caption "Stop worrying and love the Dungeon" wasn't intended to match the picture but, in retrospect, it looks like advice to the poor sap.

The poor man is obviously a henchman.

Here's to those straining souls keeping adventurers unencumbered since 1974.

We salute you!

Brunomac said...

Yeah, I'm thinking Hireling. One of the ones that got killed in Dwimmermount...

When asked why he died, James said "he didn't have a 10 foot pole"

WV - "menting". It's what mentats do, dummy.

We'll run it again in Knockspell #2 unless you try to stop me. :)

If you have the room for it and need to have Ladju grace the pages of #2, go for it.
