3.2 MUTFAST STRANGFOOT (PC #2)

Mutfast Strangfoot is a sober young Hobbit frOl~ the Marish in the Shire. Little is known about Mutfasr, 01' "Mut" as he is oft-times called, since he is an exceptionally careful sort of feHow, given to never gettil1g into trouble. In fact. most folk consider him industrious and rather bland.

Quiet, careful, and keen of ear,Mut is fond oflistening to gossip and intrigues alike. He never speaks or acts rashly and rarely utters what is on his mind, but he has a hit ofiarceny in his SOli! and has lived through many an adventure in his vivid daydreams. It is the gl int in his eye that stirs the Marish women. A few of the old folk suspect that Mut is a bit bent, perhaps even a crook, but those in his family know the truth. Mut is the sort of Hobbit that likes to hide from passersby, the t)'pe that solves puzzles when no one is looking.

His most distinguishing feature is one common to his small family.

Like all of the Strangfoots, he has an unusual left foot which, in Mut's case, is adorned with curly blond hair. This oddity gave birth to Mut's nickname: "Whitfoot."

Mut recently It:ft home and went to Btee in search of his eccentric great-ullde Boffo Strangfoot. Armed with an antique (+5) Dwarvish mace, a fine (+15) Mannish dagger, a sling, a. spare dagger, and his. father's (+ 10) bluish hide shield (weight 5 lbs.), Mut took to the road hoping to Join Boffo in the quest to find the ancientStrangfoothome. But goffo wasn't in Bree, so Muc headed eastward toward the Last Inn with

but one due to abide by. Old. BofTo is somewhere up in the Coldfells ..

3.6 PARIEL (PC #6)

Pat·iel is a Dunadan Mage, the youngest daughter of the Mannish consul to the Elven Kingdom of Lindon. Spoiled yet compassionate. beautiful yel: rugged. and wild yet wise beyond her years, she is a formidable woman.

Manv men courted Pariel, but it was Enach, a Dunadan Lord from Gonda;, who won her. He found Pariel'~ many charms overwhelming and married the youthful Mage when she was nineteen. II: was a gJOrlOilS match. Unfortunately, their sparkling union lasted less than two WE'E'ks. Enach was slain by brigands On the toad south of Bree, as the wedding party headed south toward Gonder.

Enach's death overwhelmed his young widow. Rather than return home to the Gl'ey Havens, she brooded at Btee for over a week. Then, when her compatriots were asleep, she lit from her lodgings and rode eastward aIong the Great East Road in pursuit of her husband's murderers. A due connecting the thieves to the legends of the Low Road Brigands spurred her toward the Last Inn in Rhudaur.

Panel bears the tools to exact her revenge. (TIley are a legacy of her father's exalted service.) Her small, (+ 10) sapphire-inlaid, magic wand doubles her spell-casting power (i.e., she has x2 PP) and also enables her to cast up to 3 Shock Bolts a day without expending PPs (see the Light Law spelllist on the Base Mage lists). Her magic (+ IO) dagger Can be thrown 50' with no (OB) penalty and returns to her hand the following round.
