Tric makes friends with a local magpie while Heppa savors the flavors of human food and drink.
Following the scene with Alric and his falcon, Tric’s player expressed interest in an animal companion. Although falcons fit with Tric’s Dunefolk heritage, we settled on a magpie to better fit Tric’s personality. Then it was up to me to introduce the animal in a way that a bond could form between them. Mate’s stats are derived from the falcon in the Genesys Expanded Player’s Guide with a few key modifications. We are most familiar with Australian magpies, having lived among them for a couple years, so we gave Mate a swooping ability as well as some basic mimicry for communication purposes. You can see him in our campaign artwork by Del Borovic, where he is playing with some flags in the upper left of the picture. Heledd is also in that picture, which means you have now been introduced to everyone detailed in it.
The map we refer to (by me!) can be found here.
