Quill: White Box


I wanted to create a short Quill hack for letter-writing adventures in an OD&D world.

Fighter

Battle-hardened, tough and muscular. Fighters bring the pain on the field, but don't shy away from exposing their heart when writing.

Heart: Good
Penmanship: Average
Language: Poor

Magic-user

Weavers of the great magical web. Scholars, geniuses and often loners. Magic users are eloquent, speaking with gravitas and confidence on many subjects.

Heart: Poor
Penmanship: Average
Language: Good

Cleric

It's not what the message looks like, but the words in it. Clerics put others before themselves and help those in need at all times.

Heart: Good
Penmanship: Poor
Language: Average

Dwarf

From the great undermount, dwarves have an intricate way with words, though being used to scratching runes it can be difficult to understand their writing.

Heart: Average
Penmanship: Poor
Language: Good

Elf

Elves boast the most beautiful script - flowing and organic. However they tend to be cold and logical, with others often perceiving their communications the wrong way.

Heart: Poor
Penmanship: Good
Language: Average

Halfling

Country bumpkins who enjoy the good life. They have no time for long letters, but they learnt their script from the elves, making their rare missives something to behold.

Heart: Average
Penmanship: Good
Language: Poor

Special abilities (use once per scenario)

Eloquence: +2 to Language roll
Illumination: +2 to Penmanship roll
