From the look of that, you go ahead and write them, you've got more ideas than I have. Just be sure you drop a Pathfinder into the mix, we're going to need one.
I'm going to have to be very careful about writing Kallyr at present: Steve and I are discussing her in great detail in the background, but unfortunately huge critical chunks of it are NDA, and will be until the Boatrise is out, at least. I hate putting in mysterious bits labelled "yes, there is a reason, no, I'm not going to tell you", but I may have no choice.

Well, was during his game. It's not compulsory, but I agree that it adds to the plot, so picking it up would be good.

John, you're using That Word, and I thought better of you. Weeks? Seasons?

Invent whoever we find the plot requires. I doubt if we'll end up short of NPCs.
Does Meloise do the "devoted nurse" bit, or what?

Definitely. Very loyal to Broyan, keeps insisting that they follow whatever Broyan last said, no change of course until he's back to authorise it.

Religious fanatic? Yep.

No need to detail this one, it's a PC.
> She may leave when... Broyan has recovered and resumed leadership,
Handing control very firmly back to him, and leaving to be quite sure no-one even thinks of setting up a leadership contest between them. I think her stats need a "loyal to Broyan" score during Whitewall.
You know, I rather like this leadership-vacuum idea. Kallyr seems to have been avoiding major leadership roles since the failure of the rebellion - a slight crisis of confidence, perhaps? This pushes her into it again whether she likes it or not, even if she does see it as a care-taker position for Broyan.
