Innate Magic People Part 2

Also, another moment to highlight one of my favorite character artists!
In Ahneria, nearly everyone can cast a little bit of magic, but some people can cast full-on spells. I decided it would be fun to detail out a set of NPCs based on the first level spells. As I said in the previous article, these are people who are somewhat common, but might have gained notoriety or fame based on their abilities.

This is the second in this series, and we're starting to hit the second-level spells. Even these low-level abilities can set a person apart if they use it well, so you'll see more notorious and important NPCs on this list!

Lenora Binx
Spell: Longstrider (PHB pg. 256)
Lenora Binx, a young woman with straw-colored hair, runs a small orphanage in the town of Thistleby. She is much beloved by the children there, and they always ask her to join in their games of tag. Anytime she is nearby the children, they almost magically speed up. The kids love it, but Lenora has trouble when it comes time to corral them for meals and bedtime. She could use an assistant, or someone to help catch the kids for the day.

Malaric Underhill
Spell: Mage Armor (PHB pg. 256)

He can defend himself within the regulated confines of the arena, but he is looking for guards to protect him while he sleeps, or someone to put a stop to these threats. He can certainly pay for such services, thanks to his fame.

Whisp Adams
Spell: Magic Missile (PHB pg. 257)
In the small mining town of Nowood, Whisp Adams is a local legend. They say he can’t miss when it comes to spitting tobacco, and he’s always got a cheekful ready to show off his talents. He used to compete in contests, but once he won every competition in the valley, he hung up his hat and retired in fame. But time wasn’t kind to Whisp, becoming more weathered and slight in his later years, and much of his earnings have gone to his children and cousins. And just a few days ago, in a heated argument with town butcher Killian Monroe, he got so angry that he spit right in Killian’s eye, partially blinding him. Now, Whisp needs money to pay for Killian’s healing, and will gladly share his knowledge of the valley to adventurers looking for dungeons to explore.

Queen Rosa of Anthia
Spell: Flame Blade (PHB pg. 242)
The Queen of Anthia has always inspired her troops with a flaming sword, which complimented her bright red hair and fierce personality. But it wasn’t commonly known that the sword itself was a part of her innate magical ability, not a magic item in and of itself. And now that she wishes to pass along the crown to her daughter, she needs something to take its place. A real Flametongue Longsword would be perfect. She will pay a good price for such a weapon, as well as for the discretion of those who find it.

Until next time, when we finish second level spells and start the third level spells!

Thanks for reading!
