Meet the 3.5 campaign cast!
Penelope Sheppard grew up in Oeble, in the Border Kingdoms of Faerun. Her family ran a rather successful farm, and Penelope knew she was destined for something greater when she felt a hum of power every time she picked up a scythe. After an unfortunate incident involving sheep, farm hands, and lots of death, she knew definitively at the age of 23 that she was favoured by Myrkul, the god of the dead, despite the fact that the god himself was dead.
After a chance encounter with the chaos gnome bard known as Slappy as she was making her escape from town, Penelope followed the bard and his adventuring party to a cave in the Qurth forest. She had arrived too late to meet her musical hero, as she arrived at the cave during the final moments of Slappy’s funeral. She did find kindred spirits in his adventuring party, as their cleric worshipped Myrkul and was eager to reform His church in Faerun.
With the cleric was a war troll, an alienist caster, a wildly beautiful sorcerer, a ninja, and other party members that seemed to come and go in a band of adventurer’s that couldn’t really decide on a name for themselves, but was currently going by Myrkul’s Marauders based on the persuasiveness of the cleric.
Known for being a loose cannon and having a rather large attachment to her keen scythe, Penelope is the cheeriest sort of chaotic evil, and jumps at the chance to send souls to her god, much to the cleric’s chagrin. Despite having devoted none of her spellcasting ability to healing spells, she ironically has the highest Heal skill out of all the Myrkul’s Marauders.
