Innate Magic People Part 3

This time, the artist is d-torres, a purveyor of the slightly weird
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 third in this series, and we finally get to third level spells. If these spells are properly applied, they can really change the way a person interacts with the world, so expect to see some powerful people.

Naddax Kront’tane
Spell: Flaming Sphere (PHB pg. 242)
The underdark city of Umo Ta’lari has only recently come under the salvation of Father Kront’tane, an imposing man with burning eyes and a deep voice. His church has a burning ball of fire at its peak, a holy sign granted to the city by the gods that this is the path of true worship. But the boon is not from the Gods, but Father Kront’tane himself. He is using his power to gain the servitude of the people of Umo Ta’lari, and some of them are beginning to get suspicious. He might need help quelling a rebellion, or the cityfolk might need help starting one.

Sister Doris
Spell: Gentle Repose (PHB pg. 245)
Sister Doris, always dressed in a smock and habit, runs the local cemetery, and is careful to keep the bodies of the fallen protected from necromantic magics.

Andre Blankenship
Spell: Gust of Wind (PHB pg. 248)
In his heyday, Andre Blankenship was the loudest bugler for the Blackwell Army. He was so loud, in fact, that his playing was used as a signal to coordinate military attacks, giving the army an immeasurable advantage. But now, the war has ended, and so too has Andre’s duty. He is looking for a place to continue playing is favorite instrument, but he’s too loud to join any groups. He needs help finding work, or figuring out how to soften the volume of his instrument.

Spell: Healing Spirit (XGtE pg. 157)
Dawynn is an elderly elven druid, deeply connected to the land and its magic. She is especially sought out for healing, as he magic is drawn from the natural power of the world and grants its recipient deep satisfaction. Dawynn is nearing the end of her life, and after deep contemplation, she wishes to join the Fey Courts of the Summer Queens. But the faerie are a prideful bunch, and they are unlikely to accept just a simple healer. Dawynn needs help completing a deed of great mystery or intrigue, so she may live her final years out in peace among the fey.

Zumin Ravenbrow
Spell: Heat Metal (PHB pg. 250)
In the fencing pits of Djelki, Zumin Ravenbrow is a bit of a local legend. He doesn’t have a perfect winning streak, but nearly all of his wins come from disarming his opponent. His secret? Just a bit of heat on the handle of a rapier during a strike, and the sword is on the ground, his opponent thinking it was his sword that dealt the stinging blow. But Zumin has recently been asked to enter a mixed-weapon duelist’s tournament, which includes wooden weapons like staves and clubs. His pride demands he rise to the challenge, but he needs someone to train him to fight opponents who are still armed!

Stody Crimson
Spell: Hold Person (PHB pg. 251)
In the stronghold of Cumarine, Stody Crimson is a transporter of some of the vilest criminals in Isoware.

Stody is worried his mental magic won’t be enough to restrain the villain, and is looking for someone to help him guard this prisoner.

Casting spells like Gnome-body's business
Shai Luem
Spell: Invisibility (PHB pg. 254)
Shai Luem leads the White Foxes, a small gang in the big city of Wrylax.

However, Tiri Serse, a new recruit, doesn’t think training against an invisible thief is fair, and Shai is worried that this dissent will spread through her ranks. She needs someone outside the gang to create an “accident” that will teach the kid a lesson.

Williem Learlock
Spell: Knock (PHB pg. 254)
In Castle Phloxi, Williem Learlock acts as the groundskeeper and locksmith for the King. He is excellent at his job, and his ability to instantly open any door in the keep allows him to catch thieves, spies, and servants caught in throes of passion. Last night, he was in the middle of catching a gardener and a handmaiden making out in a closet, and the loud noise from his magic woke a Duchess visiting the castle. Duchess Jessamine was at Castle Phloxi for her wedding today, and is absolutely furious. Now, Williem needs someone to calm the Duchess before he loses something dear to him, and not just his job.

Her magic simply isn’t enough to help the lad, and she’s looking for someone to restore him to his former self.

Kromdal Fargrun
Spell: Levitate (PHB pg. 255)
Ever since he was a lad, Kromdal Fargrun has had a perfectly rational fear of heights. It was rational because he often began to float up into the air, seemingly at random intervals and heights. He never knew when he’d stop floating up, or when the spell would end and send him hurtling back to the ground. After a few traumatic experiences that a well-placed net couldn’t fix, he began working in the local mine at a young age. The constant ceilings provided a deep comfort, as did the requirements that each dwarf in the clan be tied down while working on steep slopes and vertical tunnels. But now, Kromdal has been asked to start work in the ambitious Ranvian Conduit, a project to construct a huge vertical shaft for resource transportation. He needs help controlling his powers or getting over his fears, or he risks losing his job.

Isolde Juniper
Spell: Locate Animals or Plants (PHB pg. 256)
Granny Isolde Juniper is famous in the city of Xycrest for two things: her plant collection, and her apple pies.

But recently, a young girl named Dahlia Farvarrow came down with a fever that even magic didn’t seem to phase. The only solution is to find the Healing Pale Cress, a rare flower that can supposedly cure any illness. Granny Juniper needs an escort to help her cross the country and find the rare herb.

Sometimes, a little magic goes a long way
Eon Moolman
Spell: Locate Objects (PHB pg. 256)
Most people who lack organization claim they know where everything is in their mess. But that’s even more true for Eon Moolman, who can tell, with pinpoint accuracy, the location of any item in his villa. It’s especially impressive, since most of his villa is stacked with knick knacks, odds and ends, and trash from a lifetime of collecting. But recently, a thief stole a small music box from his home while he slept, and he can’t track down something outside the confines of his home. The box has deep sentimental value to him, and he’ll pay good money to get it back. Or at least, he’ll let someone pick some interesting stuff from his collection.

Desa Kashim
Spell: Magic Mouth (PHB pg. 257)
Lady Desa Kashim, Ventriloquist extraordinaire, recently faced every performer’s worst nightmare.

Wyatt Narcine
Spell: Magic Weapons (PHB pg. 237)

Spell: Maximilian's Earthen Grasp (PHB pg. 161)
Nishih Massi runs the crypt of the small town of Greypost, and is an unrelenting practical joker. She uses her powers to make shadows appear around corners, tap visitors on the shoulder, and rearrange candles when nobody's looking. It’s all very hilarious to her. But the joy of her pranks has been lost on traveling priest Avedis Artinian, who immediately declared the site shut down when he arrived in Greypost and experienced her antics. Now, Nishih needs to figure out a way to reopen the crypt and get her job back, or at least drive Avedis out of town.

Isac Lundin
Spell: Melf's Acid Arrow (PHB pg. 259)
The care of the Iris River has been passed down the Lundin family line for generations. Now, Isac Lundin, a young and magically skilled ranger, has been granted the honor of taking care of the source of the River, a mystical spring that spurts forth from the ground without any sort of origin. But while chasing hunters away from the sacred site, Isac’s arrow of acid struck the source of the River, causing the water to become spoiled. He is looking for someone to help purify the river as penance for his actions.

Nikos Kyprou
Spell: Mind Spike (PHB pg. 162)

But he runs a small business on the side, where he uses his magic to set lower class people up with his clients. He causes a headache in the well-to-do’s that visit him, then tracks their location, ensuring they will come across the  commoner that seeks them. As soon as the noble sees the peasant, he makes the headache vanish - which has been mistaken for love on more than one occasion. But recently, one of his lower-class clients, Jesstin Belling, turned out to be a real jerk, and the plan didn’t work. Now, Jesstin is threatening to expose Nikos’s secret, and Nikos is looking for help maintaining his cover.

A side effect of this project is I have plenty of random characters to fill my games
Aeres Cadogan
Spell: Mirror Image (PHB pg. 260)
In the monastery of Ostrus, Master Keenak teaches his students to be one with their mind and body. But a young acolyte, Aeres Cadogan, is having difficulty with this.

She is looking for a new teacher, or maybe someone who can escort her to a different monastery.

Victor Vântu
Spell: Misty Step (PHB pg. 260)
Victor Vântu is a paranoid and secretive prince. He built a special room in the back of his castle that is completely sealed off, with no doors and windows, and magically reinforced to keep it from being harmed. The only way in was for him to look at a painting of the room and use his magic to teleport inside, since the painting was detailed enough to act as if he could see where he was teleporting. But after an assassination attempt on his life, Victor’s painting was damaged and he can’t get back into his room. He’s looking for an artist to replace the painting, and they need to have an uncanny ability to create realistic images.

Tristan Mendoza
Spell: Nystul's Magic Aura (PHB pg. 263)
Tristan Medoza runs The Third Wish, a small magic shop in the city of Leviaren.

Tristan is looking for someone to run his shop while he gets out of town for the week.

Rowan Jolho
Spell: Phantasmal Force (PHB pg. 264)
Since he was a boy, Rowan Jolho has gotten advice from Jarrah, an elvish creature that only he could see. This isn’t all that unusual - children often have imaginary friends.

Shemsia Iyasu
Spell: Protection from Poison (PHB pg. 270)
Shemsia Iyasu is a bit of a myth among the wizards of Sireth. She’s real enough, but her claims of being able to guide travelers through the planes of the Abyss are a bit far-fetched.

Lemuel Darge
Spell: Pyrotechnics (XGtE pg. 163)

Sorin Coscis
Spell: Ray of Enfeeblement (PHB pg. 271)

Bereft of the glory and salary of his former life, he’s looking for someone who could use his skills in interrogation.

Many people have made the connection between the show-woman Hibiscus and the criminal Ibis Overwall, but by the time they figure things out, she’s gone, off to the next city. But heavy rain has prevented her from leaving the city of Tsunaloch, and Ibiscus is looking for a safe place to hide out from the authorities until she can flee.

Sigurd Abway
Spell: Scorching Ray (PHB pg. 273)
The Church of the Bright One is a prestigious and tightly-held society within the city of Hyran, and anyone who rises in its ranks is sure to live a life of honor and luxury.

A commoner recently learned about this fact when she saw the Archbishop heating his tea with his hands, and Sigurd needs someone from outside the church to keep her quiet before he is exposed.

Just doing my job, sir

Spell: Shadow Blade (XGtE pg. 164)

Spell: Shatter (PHB pg. 275)
Iyas Nyakio, the Royal Architect of Rileth, also dabbles in his own brand of explosive demolition.

Samira Momeni
Spell: Skywrite (XGtE pg. 165)
Samira Momeni is the best party planner in the city of Kloria. She uses her magical talents to “Personalize the Skies” for her clients, granting them their own personal messages in the air over their parties.

She’s looking for someone who can go capture some swans for her while she maintains the party.

Chief Kaskae
Spell: Snilloc's Snowball Swarm (XGtE pg. 165)
As a young boy, Chief Kaskae of the Ikiaq tribe would play with his brothers, throwing snowballs back and forth across the icy plains. He always won, but never boasted or bragged about it. He always stayed on good terms, to make sure his brothers would want to play with him again. Those diplomatic skills now serve him well as the Chieftain of his tribe, but he’s still an incorrigible prankster who loves throwing snowballs at his friends and family. His brothers, Kanosak and Qilaq, think he needs a wake-up call to get him to break his childish habits, and are looking for someone to stage an attack on the tribe and bring him to his senses.

He’s looking for some poor saps (or evil explorers) to gather some large deadly plants for him.

Nox Turness
Spell: Spiritual Weapon (PHB pg. 278)
Knightess Nox Turness is a feared warrior in the lands of Awykos. Her magic weapon is bonded to her soul, and it changes every time she slays a foe.

Several years ago, Prince Edwin Lundvik, an intelligent and ambitious young man, was researching ancient lore when he stumbled across a forbidden secret, which burrowed into his mind and took control of him.

Serije Gogov
Spell: Zone of Truth (PHB pg. 289)
They say the Hall of Justice in Panying is the safest place to negotiate, but also the worst place to keep secrets. That’s because the corridors are stalked by Serije Gogov, a shifty man who often passes as a janitor in the Hall. He uses his powers to force high-ranking parties to tell the truth, then sells their secrets to their rivals. But recently, King Azarah of Nagr has traced a leak of information back to the Hall of Justice, and is hatching a plot to expose whoever sold his secrets. Serije needs help hiding away until the pressure has eased.

Vasilika Turpin
Spell: Animate Dead (PHB pg. 212)
Vasilika Turpin doesn’t get along with other people. It might be the skulls on her robes, her dark makeup and hair, or maybe the fact that she mostly hangs out with the undead. From a young age, Vasilika found comfort in those that obey her commands and can’t talk back, but that preference has gotten her ousted from civil society. At first she was alright with it, but after years of fending off knights and mercenaries, she’s gotten a bit jealous of people who can live normal lives. She’s tried to rejoin society, but invariably gets frustrated when people don’t obey her commands.

Uridove Primalis
Spell: Beacon of Hope (PHB pg. 217)

Something powerful and perhaps legendary would do the trick.

Caito Qilan
Spell: Bestow Curse (PHB pg. 218)
Ever since Caito Qilan began to come of age, he noticed his life had a sort of equilibrium. Whenever he was happy, ill luck would befall those around him.

But recently, he crossed paths with Xan Lee, a charming boy from the city of Eldim. They’ve spent time together on several occasions, and Caito finds it hard to restrain his happiness when Xan is around.

Not the brightest knight in the night
Lila Mirro
Spell: Blinding Smite (PHB pg. 219)
Lila Mirro is a paladin, serving the God of Light, Pelor. She shines her armor to a mirror polish every day, so she practically glimmers even when she isn’t in the sunlight. And when she unleashes her signature Blinding Smite, her armor makes the radiant flash even more effective! But recently, she was asked to defeat the Mud Monster of the Brakenridge Swamp. Such a beast would surely dampen her powerful brightness, and she’s looking for assistance. Another paladin would be nice, or maybe just a wizard who can magically clean her armor in the battle.

The Glimpse
Spell: Blink (PHB pg. 219)
The people of the town of Delvinshire are looking for help. They believe a strange spirit is stealing their food and belongings! It only appears for a brief moment before it blinks back out of existence. They call it The Glimpse, and they will pay what little they have if someone were to rid them of it.

Constance Trader
Spell: Call Lightning (PHB pg. 220)
Constance Trader has always been rained on as long as she can remember. It’s not her fault, the clouds just open up into a downpour wherever she goes. After leaving her hometown, she quickly found work watering farmer’s crops and obscuring enemy intel for the army of Rokinu. But this year, the rainy season has gone on especially long, and she’s hurting for money. Nobody needs her services when nature is already providing! She’s looking for work, or someone to figure out how to otherwise use her powers.

See you in a couple weeks, when we really power through the third-level spells.

Thanks for reading!
