1[[foldercontrol]]˛!!Ätlän-tã Fælcons˛[[folder: Aludra Wyrmsbane]]˛!!Aludra Wyrmsbane˛!!!Played by: Jennifer Cheek˛[[quoteright:350:]] ˛[[caption-width-right:350:''"Aludra eats the bacon!"'']]˛--> '''Class''': Druid (Ep.1-5), Warden (Ep.6-126) (4e), Paladin (Ep.127-154), Warden (Post-TimeSkip-) (5e)˛˛A dwarf Druid, then Warden, then Paladin, then Warden again. Aludra serves as the party's tank and was the only remaining character that debuted in episode 1, before retiring from adventuring to rule the dwarven people in Deephome.˛˛Fills the role of the party's [[TheHeart "heart."]] She is the nurturer of the party, started as its healer and, before the plotline involved her actual family, she was adopting [=NPCs=] with Thom. She developed a deep romantic relationship with new party memeber, Jaela.˛˛----˛* ArrangedMarriage: Escaping one of these is the reason she left the dwarven kingdom to pursue a life of adventure. [[spoiler: Her betrothed [[NiceGuy is actually a pretty swell guy.]]]]˛* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: In the fallout of the Oakback rebellion and as a result of the strength she displayed, the king abdicated his throne to her.˛* BigBeautifulWoman: Aludra has her share of admirers and Jennifer makes it clear that she's not at all skinny - despite her height, she's '''heavier''' than every PC except Thom.˛--> '''Jennifer''': She's a busty gal!˛* ButtMonkey: Mostly in terms of mechanics. Jennifer Cheek's legendarily bad rolls are generally described as Aludra flailing around like a drunker toddler.˛* CatchPhrase: Albeit a forced one in "Aludra eats the bacon."˛* GameplayAndStoryIntegration: When it became clear that the group was in need of a defender, Luccan directed the group to a "place of great power". There, Aludra lost the ability to transform but became much sturdier - in other words she changed from Druid to Warden.˛* HappilyMarried: To her queen-consort, Jaela.˛* StoneWall: Aludra is slow and not terribly accurate, but with her monstrous Constitution and AC, she is by far the best at taking hits.˛* TeamMom: She is the motherly soul of the party, usually the first to advocate peaceful solutions. With Thom, she even adopted a young githyanki boy named Bucky.˛* TrademarkFavouriteFood: Boob burritos. That is, burritos cooked and stored at the perfect temperature between her boobs. The party agrees that they are delicious and she always stays well-stocked. ˛* VoluntaryShapeshifting: At the very beginning, Aludra's druid class allowed her to shapeshift into various animal forms. Much, much later, one of Toby's common tactics was to transform Aludra into a giant ''Tyrannosaurus Rex''.˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Thom the Dragonborn]]˛!!Thom Vidalis˛!!!Played by: Mike Bachmann˛--> '''Class''': Warlord/Bard (4e), Barbarian (5e)˛˛A dragonborn warlord, later barbarian. Thom is the wild card, as is any other character played by Mike Bachmann. First introduced in episode 1.˛----˛˛* AxCrazy: He is the most reckless and bloodthirsty of the group. An off-hand remark by Tum (and a lapse in Mike Bachmann's attention) resulted in him decapitating a captive Thokas, and he quickly decided that a dragonborn with a tail (which is highly unusual) must die so that [[ThereCanBeOnlyOne Thom remains the only tailed dragonborn in the world]]. He is also a practitioner of Tantric Death - the act of getting as close to death as possible without dying.˛* BerserkButton: Thom is volatile at the best of times, but Steve hijacking his body for a short while enraged him. And on the subject of Steve, "[[FantasticRacism Gnollllls...]]".˛* BloodKnight: He loves shedding blood. [[CombatSadomasochist It doesn't matter whose.]]˛* CatchPhrase: "Gnollllls..."˛* EstablishingCharacterMoment: When Thom beheads Thokus without hesitation at Tum's request, he establishes himself as something of a loose cannon.˛* EvilWeapon: Blood Drinker, which synergises very well with Thom's abilities to the point that Thrifty begins to regret introducing it...˛* HeroicSacrifice: Thom makes one - by accident - when he closes the portal to the Abyss.˛* FireForgedFriends: "Friends" is probably too strong a term, but he eventually softens (a bit) towards [[NiceGuy Steve]].˛* ReplacementScrappy: In-universe, this is what he feels about the Battle-Crazed Greatsword(+1) whenever he cannot wield [[EvilWeapon Blood Drinker]].˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Lord/King Titus Harper]]˛!!Titus Harper˛!!!Played by: Tim Lanning˛--> '''Class:''' Sorcerer (4e), Storm Sorcerer (5e)˛˛A human Storm Sorcerer. A charming, if arrogant and abrasive scion of a noble house. Harper serves as the party's main spellcaster, courtesy of the tattoos etched into his skin. First introduced in episode 32 to fill the void left by Tum.˛----˛* AwfulWeddedLife: It seems that way on the surface, given that he's married to the very haughty, classist Ashayara Dayne after the TimeSkip. Indeed, he seems all too happy to leave Pelor's Hope and attend Aludra's wedding. Likely subverted given their six children, their... [[RightThroughTheWall farewell]] as Harper leaves for Deephome and [[spoiler: Dayne's [[WomanScorned grief and fury believing the party to be responsible for Harper's death]]]].˛* CatchPhrase: "My dark past..."˛* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The party initially seems to be entranced by Harper, given his 17 Charisma. In fact, Tim demonstrates the power of Harper's charisma by having him [[ItMakesSenseInContext squat down and]] [[Squick take a dump on the ground in front of the party]], who were somehow impressed by this display of "charisma". By the next episode, Harper's [[JerkAss abrasive personality]] began to emerge and he began to become [[TheFriendNobodyLikes tolerated at best]].˛* EasilyForgiven: After the events of [[WhamEpisode Episode 79]], Harper is the only one who averts this in regards to [[spoiler: [[InTheBack Ros]]. Even when she [[BigDamnHeroes brings the cavalry]] after the party retrieves the Demonomicon, Harper is prepared to kill her when he spots her again.]] Granted, the rest of the party did not personally experience the betrayal like Harper.˛* HiddenDepths: Even after the TimeSkip, Harper remains his angry neurotic self. But while he brings [[GreenEyedMonster Jaela]] to Deephome as a favour to an old friend, he not fooled by her intentions - he has no desire to see her ruin the upcoming wedding and the chance for peace. His discussion with her on the boat shows that he understands the traits and importance of being a true leader, including the personal sacrifices. [[spoiler: Not that it stopped him from being blinded by his own desire for revenge, fatally so.]]˛** The same conversation also reveals his attitude towards his tattoos. He sees them as a sign of his obligations˛* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: He and the rest of the party clutched the IdiotBall hard in Longcryer's Tower, ignoring (or misunderstanding) all the warnings that they were walking into a trap. The result: LudicrousGibs as Harper's tattoos exploded.]]˛˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Jaela]]˛!!Jaela˛!!!Played by: Nika Howard˛--> '''Class:''' Avenger (4e), Paladin (5e)˛˛A deva avenger, later aasimar (though still called deva in-story) paladin. Jaela is most often on the front lines. First introduced in episode 82.˛˛Develops a relationship with Aludra.˛----˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Steve Meloncamp]]˛Played by: Mike Bachman˛˛Part of a group of characters that the party played as one-offs to help a macguffin move closer to the core plotline. Both he and a couple of the others have made reappearances later on.˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Jett Razor]]˛!!Jett Razor˛!!!Played by: Mike Bachmann˛--> '''Class:''' Bard˛˛A changeling bard. Jett is something of a washed-up rockstar and runs support for the party. First introduced in episode 161.˛----˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Junpei Iori]]˛!!Junpei Iori˛!!!Played by: Steven Strom˛--> '''Class:''' Wizard˛˛A githyanki wizard.

Played by: Tim Lanning˛--> '''Class:''' Rogue˛˛A halfling rogue. Tum did roguish, stealthy things for the party during his brief stint as a member of it. First introduced in episode 1.˛˛Is remembered fondly by fans and sometimes people forget how short a time he was a character due to his large impact.˛˛Has been brought back at least once as a ghost during a holiday themed episode.˛----˛* CatchPhrase: "Slyyyyy flourish!" and "Call me Darkblade."˛[[/folder]]˛˛!!Tower Of Grey˛[[folder: Toby Treacletart]]˛˛[[/folder]]˛[[folder: Rowan Grey]]˛˛[[/folder]]˛[[folder: Lahnik "Lahni" Caplain]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Skud Derringer]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛!!Minor/Guest Player Characters˛[[folder: Lex]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Wren]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Watari]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Wren]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Marendithas Bearcharger]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Bananas Foster]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Rudolph Reindeer]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Ray]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Elliewick Battlebranch]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛!!Minor Adventuring Parties˛[[folder: Demonomicon Deliverers]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Tidtown Terrors]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Babysitter's Club]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Feywild Four]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛[[folder: Circle Of Seven]]˛[[/folder]]˛˛!!Friendly [=NPCs=]˛All [=NPCs=] are played by Dungeon Master Michael [="ThriftyNerd"=] [=DiMauro=] unless otherwise noted.˛[[folder: Roz]]˛˛An NPC the party rescues and becomes a very important character over time.
