Deadlands One-Shot

    Juniper "Stinky Jules" Lanley 

Juniper "Stinky Jules" Lanley

Played by: Laura Bailey

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stinky_jules_by_nicklas_andersson.png
Race: Human

  • American Accents: Has a rather thick Texan drawl.
  • Badass Normal: In contrast to the rest of the party, she works with nothing but her six-shooter and sheer guts.
  • Brutal Honesty: Does not mince words at all, which makes her a relatively trustworthy person to be around, attitude notwithstanding.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": Threatens to shoot anybody who calls her "Juniper Langley" in the mouth.
  • The Gunslinger: She is quite skilled with her six shooter.
  • Hates Baths: It's how she got her nickname. In fact, she's unfamiliar enough with baths that when given a bar of soap by the Reverend, she thinks he's giving her something to eat, and doesn't even seem to initially know what soap is.
  • In-Series Nickname: Everybody calls her "Stinky Jules".
  • The Nicknamer: Gives out a few herself, including "Smarts" to Sydney and "Sue" to Sudas.
  • The Pigpen: If her aversion to bathing and In-Series Nickname didn't make it clear.
  • Screaming Warrior: She lets out an impressive primal scream while fanning her revolver into the monster in the mine.
  • Son of a Whore: Her mother was an "escort."
  • Tear Off Your Face: Cy Tolliver, as a werewolf, tears off her face.

    Forrest Alton 

Reverend Forrest Alton

Played by: Liam O'Brien

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/reverend_forrest_alron_by_nicklas_andersson.png
Race: Human

  • Badass Preacher: He's a Union Army chaplain.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Having "Heroic" as his Hindrance means he's compelled to behave in this way.
  • Gutted Like a Fish: Sydney guts him from bottom to top with a knife.
  • Healing Hands: He's able to bring about healing miracles via his faith in God.
  • Hearing Voices: Begins hearing something though he isn't certain if it is an angel or a demon, at times. The way it talks does hint toward it being The Corrupter, and thus a demon, though. Given that he is implied to be Dragged Off to Hell, the assumption is correct.
  • Improbable Weapon User: His primary weapon is a sharpened crucifix.
  • Religion Is Magic: As a Blessed character, his faith healing actually has magical power.
  • Straight Man: Deliberately identified as such by Liam in comparison to the others. Considering they range from Stinky Jules to Sudas to Sydney, he has a point.
  • White Mage: His main skill set revolves around benevolent magic, from healing to enhancing weaponry to fight evil.

    Sydney Hopkins Trivelpiece 

Sydney Hopkins Trivelpiece

Played by: Travis Willingham

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sydent_hopkubs_trivelpiece_by_nicklas_andersson.png
Race: Human (actually Rakshasa)

  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Turns out he's actually a serial-killing Rakshasa.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: His actual voice is very deep, unlike his high pitched one in his act. Fitting into the "evil" part of it, the first time he uses it overtly is when he stabs Charlie Utter in the gut and twists the knife to re-open his wound.
  • Fauxreigner: In-Universe. He claims to be from England, but when pressed, he says he is from "Tawnyland" and "Shephardshire," both of which give even other players pause and together force him to make a deception check. He's actually a Rakshasa, and not from England at all.
  • Foil: Of a sort. He is in almost every way the complete opposite of Grog, from his stature down to his voice.
  • Jack the Ripoff: The English accent on top of his Knife Nut Serial Killer shtick completes this trope.
  • The Killer in Me: The "Secretive Killer" version, which catches everyone but Liam by surprise.
    Laura: Wait, are you— is he stabbin' 'im?
    Liam: Yeah, he's a faker, yeah. Big surprise.
  • Knife Nut: His weapon of choice is a Bowie knife. Heavy on the "nut" part, in that it's first shown he even has one when he guts Charlie Utter.
  • Lean and Mean: He's noted to be very thin, and is a serial killer.
  • The Mole: He was working with Cy Tolliver the entire time, and personally kills Forrest.
  • Nothing Up My Sleeve: He keeps Bowie knives in his sleeves and boot.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: His entire Upper-Class Twit affectation is just an act. His actual voice is much deeper, and he is a supernatural serial killer.
  • Quote Swear Unquote: While facing off against Cy Tolliver the werewolf in the mines, notable especially because he switches accents halfway through:
  • Serial Killer: What he actually is.
  • Sole Survivor: The only member of the party to survive... because he was The Mole the entire time.
  • The Teetotaler: He doesn't drink alcohol, but enjoys "a good clean glass of water."
  • Totally Not a Werewolf: Once some of his secret is found out by the players, they try to see if he is a werewolf, seeing a they are looking for one. This includes throwing him some silver to see if he reacts, but he doesn't. That's because he is a Rakshasa, not a werewolf.
  • Verbal Ticked: He drops his Upper-Class Twit affectations a couple times when he gets sufficiently pissed off. This serves to foreshadow that there's a bit more to him than meets the eye.
  • Wham Line: "Well, some people don't get to escape death."

  • Afraid of Blood: As he's been regressed to a child, he's very squeamish around gore.
    Travis: I haven't seen an R-rated movie at this point!
  • Undying Loyalty: Even in the apocalypse, he'll do anything to protect his wife.

    Ashley Johnson 

Ashley Johnson

Played by: Ashley Johnson

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/youngashleyportrait_by_kendrawcandraw.jpg
Race: Human
Class: Rogue

  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: Ashley's impulse tends to be to go dark as Hell, as seen when she keeps a dead skinless cat on her belt as an accessory, biting into that skinless cat as an intimidation tactic, or when she tries to bargain with Demogorgon by wearing Marisha's torso on her head.

    Matthew Mercer 

Matthew Mercer

Played by: Matthew Mercer

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/youngmattportrait_by_kendrawcandraw.jpg
Race: Human
Class: Bard

  • Adorkable: Fitting for a teenage version of himself.
  • Battle Couple: With Marisha.
  • Cutscene Power to the Max: In the first part of Liam's Quest, he and Marisha are 20th Level NPCs. As PCs, they're on par with the rest of the party. Justified due to being regressed to teenagers.
  • Purple Prose: Indulges in this when giving inspiration.

Race: Troll (Olog-Hai)
Class: Fighter

    Ur-Eden 

Ur-Eden Goodthink

Played by: Sam Riegel

Race: Troll (Olog-Hai)
Class: Monk

  • The Heart: Rather appropriately for a monk doubling as the medic, he still believes in the Forcs even after half of them have turned traitor.
  • Not So Harmless: He's able to survive Skak's betrayal, after Mozuu has turned and Arby is otherwise occupied, leaving him alone.
  • Worst Aid: He's the team medic. And he's a troll.
    "He had a rash... I ripped his skin off."

    Liam O'Brien 

Liam O'Brien

Played by: Liam O'Brien

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vampire_liam.jpg
Race: Human (Vampire)
Clan: Nosferatu
Discipline: Presence

  • Ambiguously Bi: There's a lot of Homoerotic Subtext between him and Sam, especially on his part. At one point in the second part he even calls Sam his husband. It's not clear how much of this is just him messing with them, though, and given he is actually married to a woman in real life, that probably translates to the story as well.
  • Charm Person: One of his vampiric powers, through use of "Presence: Awe." It's his go-to tactic for dealing with any situation.
  • Fully-Embraced Fiend: Liam adjusts really quickly to being a vampire and having to drink blood to survive, taking to drinking human blood by two hours into the stream, before any of the others. By the time they get into the sewers, he is the one most in favor of never trying to become human again.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Is given a Back Stab with a Wooden Stake by Felicia Day. Eventually, he's pinned to the floor, and presumably dies.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Takes to enforcing minor Mind Control on various people over the adventure all to make them into bodyguards to protect himself. Unfortunately, as he took up both Laura and Travis, he neglects to take into account The Power of Love, which ends up overriding the control of his own defense.
  • Nightmare Face: Befitting a Nosferatu, he has a crackled face that doesn’t seem to look quite right anymore.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Really into the nastier parts of being a vampire.
    Sam: I also learned that I can kill a man in... seconds flat!
    Liam: That's hot.

  • I Ate WHAT?!: Is horrified to realize she is drinking tea partly made from her best friend Sean.
  • Last Words: "It's something I ate. Mushrooms never sat well with me."
  • Partial Transformation: Starts to turn into a more monstrous form soon after emergence.
  • Transformation Horror: Is transformed into a mushroom-based corpse by the tea.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Doesn't last much longer than Matt, due to drinking the mushroom-tainted tea.

Once Upon a Fairytale Cruise

    Scarecrow 

Scarecrow

Played by: H. Michael Croner

Class: Monk

"Hello, are you in love with anyone and are you open to loving someone new?"

  • Body Horror: His Intimidation works so well because it involves briefly unstitching his head open, scaring one of the Lost Boys to a pants-shitting degree.
  • The Ditz: It's the Scarecrow, who's confirmed as never really getting his brain (see above).
  • Stealth Pun: He gets a beautiful first-blood hit with Intimidation (and miraculously repeats the feat in the final fight). Because he's a scarecrow.
    Croner: "This intimidation shit is the tits!"

    The Hatter

Wendy Darling

    Peter Pan 

Peter Pan

    Greldamine Clypso 

Greldamine Clypso

Played by: Laura Bailey

Race: Gnome
Class: Wizard

  • Accidental Misnaming: Gets called "Glindamine" and even "dramamine" at some points.
  • All-Loving Hero: What Quazirat does to their kobold hostage terrifies her.
  • Corrupt the Cutie: The first Sword of Plot Advancement is the staff Aluneth, which has a mind of its own - and in the hands of the resident wizard, some very dubious intentions as well. Later on the Firelord battle leads to collateral damage with kobolds burning - she puts them to sleep so they die less noisily.
  • Token Mini-Moe: The resident Naïve Newcomer, and a gnome. Says it all, really.

    Bundle

    Lokhor Windfallow 

Lokhor Windfallow

Played by: Travis Willingham

Race: Human
Class: Paladin

  • Leeroy Jenkins: The first to lash out with his two-hand hammer and charge into the fray against a kobold mob - only for one of them to throw lit dynamite at his feet. Quite appropriate if you remember the Trope Namer.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: A particularly vain paladin who immediately takes charge of the mission - his deflating moment comes almost immediately when he violently rips a bramble bush out of the ground, only to realise when he slips up that it's just Mobile Shrubbery.

    Aerwin Whiteclaw 

Aerwin Whiteclaw

Played by: Jennifer Hale

Race: Night Elf
Class: Rogue

  • Audience Surrogate: Due to Jennifer being a first-time player.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Night Elves were never the most social race, but Aerwin warms up to the only other female of the party (Greldamine) easily.
  • Hidden Depths: Apparently she tried out other jobs like businessperson and healer to avoid getting swept up in the family business, the admittedly generic night elf rogue trade.

Crash Pandas: Too Trashed, Too Curious

    Reggie 

Reggie Burns

Played by: Matthew Mercer

Race: Raccoon

  • Blade Below the Shoulder: After scavenging barbecue utensils from the junkyard, Reggie conceals one of the sharper implements in his cast. It comes in handy when he has to hang on to moving vehicles.
  • Unknown Rival: To Vin Diesel, briefly putting him at odds with Izzy.

  • Crazy Awesome: With no time to install the jet booster in their ride, he opts to ignite it and hang on to it, grabbing the vehicle with his other arm like he's in a Marvel movie. It works.

    Izzy 

Izzy

Played by: Laura Bailey

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/izzy_by_hugo_cardenas.jpg
Race: Raccoon

  • Celeb Crush: On Vin Diesel. She entered the race in hopes of impressing him.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills:
    • In the first race she flings a broomstick at the car behind them, not only shattering the windscreen but nailing the driver.
    • She's forced to get Reggie off of Vin Diesel's car by flinging a banana peel at it from their ice cream truck, forcing him to swerve. When both vehicles are in mid-race.

  • I Know Madden Kombat: As a Quidditch beater he's surprisingly effective at close combat, nailing the first kill of the evening.

Race: Human

House: Horfleporf

  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: While the others are already getting into an argument, she's making mushrooms and flowers grow out of her desk.
  • Insistent Terminology: Listed as a druid according to game mechanics, but she establishes that "I'm a witch... It's Shmogwarts." (Maybe her major is Wiccan?)

Race: Christmas Elf
Class: Wizard

  • Brooklyn Rage: Just recently transferred back to the North Pole from Macy's of New York, and still has a bit of the accent and the attitude.
  • Shock and Awe: That wizard class is not for show - a well placed thunderbolt from Nutmeg gets the first kill of the evening.

Played by: Sam Riegel

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bundlestien_sprucenberg_by_hugo_cardenas.jpg
Race: Christmas Elf
Class: Fighter (Samurai)

  • Accidental Misnaming: Gets hit with this the most, being called "Bundlesmear" and "Bruce Springsteen".
  • Butt-Monkey: He went from mucking out the reindeer stables to a somehow crappier position by being dragged into this adventure.
  • Hidden Depths: Working the stables has gained him several skills like communicating with the reindeer, and rope-tying. And his experience in maintaining Santa's sleigh makes him the second most qualified elf after Chutney for emergency toy production.

    Chutney 

Chutney Chocolatecane

Race: Christmas Elf
Class: Cleric (Life Domain)

  • Accidental Misnaming: Cranberry keeps calling her "Elroy" thanks to his accent.
  • Edible Bludgeon: Her Spiritual Weapon is a fruitcake.
  • Genki Girl: This is her first Christmas, and she is very excited about it.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Literally!
  • Naïve Everygirl: When they find the grove of portals to other holiday worlds, only four are immediately obvious (St Patricks' Day, Thanksgiving, Easter and Halloween), leaving one out - Ellory is the first to suggest Valentine's Day.

Tails of Equestria One-Shot

    Countess Pi 

Countess Pi

Played by: Julie Nathanson

Race: Unicorn
Element of Harmony: Kindness

  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Her talent for numbers and math comes in handy both for navigating mountains and analyzing Laz's jousting opponents.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Downplayed. She's a bit out-there, but is also one of the most empathetic members of the group.
  • The Empath: Picks this up as a secondary talent upon levelling up.
  • Good with Numbers: Her Cutie Mark talent.
  • Nap-Inducing Speak: Helps Laz sleep by reciting numbers to him.
  • Punny Name: Countess suggests a regal bearing but also sounds like "count".
  • The Rain Man: The others jokingly call her "Rain-mare", though she lacks the social issues of the trope namer.
  • Southern-Fried Genius: She's Good with Numbers and Julie plays her with a Southern accent. Her Mind stat is also among the highest of the party.

    Tomeytime 

Tomeytime

Played by: Liam O'Brien

Race: Earth Pony
Element of Harmony: Honesty

  • Church of Happyology: Some of his self-help veers suspiciously close to this.
  • Expy: Design-wise, he's almost a ponified Caleb, right down to the belt of books. Though his actual personality is almost a parody of him: his study is limited to self-help books and his neurosis is Played for Laughs.
  • The Face: One of two for the party, along with Peaches.
  • Punny Name: Like storytime, but with tomes instead.
  • Throw the Book at Them: Tries this against some thieves, but it isn't very successful.

    Trixie Gadgets 

Trixie Gadgets

Played by: Markia McCarthy

Race: Unicorn
Element of Harmony: Generosity

  • Gadgeteer Genius: It's her entire speciality. Initially her talent only lies in inventing, but she picks up engineering as an additional skill when levelling.
  • Heroic Wannabe: Wants to be a superhero.
  • I Choose to Stay: At the end of the adventure, she takes up Lapis Lazuli's offer to act as Royal Gadgeteer for Zirconia, but promises to visit the others.
  • Name's the Same: With Trixie Lulamoon from the actual show, though it's probably a coincidence.

    Peaches Silversong 

Peaches Silversong

Played by: Ashley Johnson

Race: Pegasus
Element of Harmony: Honesty

  • Blade on a Stick: Takes a royal guard spear on the adventure and eventually gains talent with it.
  • Cannot Tell a Lie: She takes her Honesty element completely literally.
  • Contralto of Danger: Played with. She talks this way, but her talents lie more in flute playing and being The Face than brute strength.
  • Famed In-Story: She's already a famous musician who's played for Princess Celestia and Luna in the past, and is an acquaintance of Twilight's.
  • The Mentor: As the one Pegasus of the group, she's the one to train Laz in the art of aerial jousting.
  • The Face: The other one in the party. Her flute skills help on in Charm tests.
  • Flight: Naturally capable of this as a Pegasus, and notably the only member of the party who can.

    Septimus Goodfellow 

Septimus Goodfellow/"Archie"

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crcthulhu_septimusgoodfellow.jpg
Celebrity Spiritualist

Played by: Liam O'Brien


  • And Then John Was a Zombie: After his death, he becomes one of the backwards-facing Shadow People.
  • The Alcoholic: Much of his earlier dialogue involves asking where the booze is.
  • Famed In-Story: He's something of a celebrity spiritualist.
  • Foreshadowing: His Occult check is said to be very bad, with him substituting his Psychology check and Taliesin allowing him to have knowledge "in his notes" about things... because he is actually terrible with occultism, good at lying to people, and is a Phony Psychic the entire time.
  • Improvised Weapon: Grabs a fire poker toward the end in an attempt to defend himself.
  • In-Series Nickname: Ida calls him "Archie" once his true, Scottish identity is made clear, and thereafter this becomes what everybody calls him in general.
  • It's All About Me: Once his true colors are revealed, he shows that he only cares about his own wellbeing, unlike the others at least trying to work together and help one another. This attitude leads to his death.
  • Killed Off for Real: While the other lost party members fall under Uncertain Doom, he's the only one to have been clearly killed. See below.
  • Meaningful Name: Goodfellow aka Robin Goodfellow is another name for Puck, a trickster fae from William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Something that he would know since he's actually an actor.
  • Phony Psychic: He's really an actor who doesn't know crap about the occult.
  • Off with His Head!: Having had enough, he rushes for the exit in a blind panic, and ends up failing a Pushed roll. The group see him run into a shadow, and all they see next is his severed head fly through the air and disappear into another shadow.
  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: Played for Drama, when he reveals he is a Phony Psychic while being their apparent only hope against the Shadow People.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After his ruse is found out, his only instinct is to get out of the Crystal Palace as soon as possible. This gets much worse when he fails a sanity roll, with it becoming an overwhelming compulsion that leads to his decapitation.
  • Wham Line: "I don't know what the fook that does."

    Hanako Hayashi 

Hanako Hayashi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/crcthulhu_hanakohayashi.jpg
Socialite, Ambassador

Played by: Erika Ishii


  • In-Series Nickname: While Hanako can sometimes be shortened to Hana (still a legit name in Japanese), all the non-Japanese players end up pronouncing it "Hannah", Though Ashly makes an effort to at least try to use the correct pronunciation.
  • Proper Lady: Of the not-that-innocent variety - she learned lockpicking in boarding school.
  • The Face: Her intended role within the group when recruited.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: She and Cpt. Badger share a mutual attraction and flirt a bit upon first meeting, but being thrust into a Cosmic Horror Story leaves them with little opportunity to explore their feelings further. However, at the job's conclusion Hanako expresses a desire to see Bently again in a non-work-related context, which he agrees would be nice.

  • Enlightenment Superpowers: Is able to use the meditation techniques of the monks she is working for to activate a mystic artifact, in one of the few magical effects by the protagonists that is actually on purpose.
  • From Dress to Dressing: She uses a torn piece of her dress as an improvised bandage on the claw wounds Hanako received from the Shadow People.
  • Sanity Slippage: The second to lose sanity, in her case from the first encounter with the Shadow People. She becomes increasingly paranoid and twitchy at the idea of someone always right behind her, breathing down her neck, just out of sight. It goes away once the actual Shadow People show up directly.

British Museum Antiques Archivist

Played by: Phil La Marr


  • Black and Nerdy: He is the antiquities archivist for the British Museum.
  • Face Death with Dignity: As his attempt to rescue Ida by shattering the mirror fails and he's surrounded by shadows, his last thoughts as he's pulled in are that he went out testing a hypothesis, like a true scientist.
  • It's All My Fault: Due to both the horrific events and the overall nature of his part in the release of the Shadow People, Pocket blames himself for breaking the mirror and causing all of the subsequent problems that result.
  • Not That Kind of Doctor: He makes it clear that he's a Ph., not an M.D.
    Dr. Pocket: I'm a book doctor, not a blood doctor!
  • Motor Mouth: When he starts to show the strain of the horrors around him after seeing the Shadow People, he becomes prone to bursts of sudden rambling about them.
  • Occult Detective: Borders on it. His main area of expertise is his knowledge of ancient cultures, which leads him to realize that between the black mirror and the red stone, the group are stumbling into something far greater than just a delivery service.
  • Sanity Slippage: Begins at the same time as O'Neill, also from the Shadow People. In his case, the first compulsion is a "connectivity compulsion," where if he starts talking about the Shadow People, he can't stop until someone can calm him down. The second time he fails a sanity roll, when he gets bitten by the Shadow People while trying to escape, he becomes convinced that the only way for Ida to help, and thereby prove his hypothesis about the Mirror People as helpful versus the Shadow People being harmful, is for him to break the mirror he sees and free the subject.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He really should have been more careful with that mirror, as breaking it caused a lot of occult horror.

Ex British Cavalry, Butler to Mr. Merriweather

Played by: Travis Willingham


  • Battle Butler: He's a veteran of the Second Anglo-Afghan War and is currently employed as Mr. Merriweather's butler.
  • The Big Guy: He's easily the physically strongest and probably the most experienced combatant in the group. Thus, he's usually called upon to do the heavy lifting.
  • Cane Sword: He carries one disguised as a gentleman's cane as a relic from his time in the Second Afghan War. He only ever really uses it as a thinner surface to lift something up, and not in combat.
    Taliesin: I cannot believe you convinced me to let you have that.
  • Handicapped Badass: He walks with a cane due to an old war wound, but it doesn't really seem to slow him down.
  • Sanity Slippage: His sanity goes down first after seeing Joseph Weyland with a Missing Reflection, with him gaining a compulsion to check every mirror he comes across to make sure he still has one. However, it never really is much of an issue beyond general paranoia.
