Fishguts Village


The rank aroma of rotting herring wafts through the crooked, slimy streets of Fishguts Village. The place is populated by humanoid amphibious fish people called Troot.

You meet a random villager (D12)

1. Pollock the landlady has blood on her apron and a fishhook in her pocket
2. Breamer Basher, dandy man about town can't get enough of that anemone dust. Sends him wild
3. Corporal Haddock, wearing purple military colours. He's seen something down the cove and is off to hunt it
4. Reena Codder, detective with the degenerative snooks disease. Two weeks to live. This was no accident.
5. Sparks Flatfish, young, muscular adventurer. Sliced open his boyfriend and ate his insides. Great poker player.
6. Marlin the coot. Old man who's seen it all. Has premonitions. Some people want him gone.
7. Chummer Lorris, the spearsmith. One milkly eye. Mostly drunk.
8. Sharks Mcginn, gangster, tough guy and heavily religious. Runs this village.
9. Barbara Cuda, femme fatale. Bright red. Transforms into a human on a full moon.
10. Clowny the tramp. Lives within the shadows of the village and sees more than most. Can hook you up with the good stuff. The stuff is actually terrible.
11. Whitey Baiter, wet wizard of Wattle Street. Raised his two kids from the dead and keeps them in his cellar. They're more feral than ever.
