Dungeons & Dragons,  Raiders of the Serpent Sea

Hrolf, a Raider Hero

Raiders of the Serpent Sea, like its predecessor Odyssey of the Dragonlords, features quotes from remarkable NPCs in the campaign and player books. I figured I’d sneak in an extra post this week to delve a bit more into one of these NPCs whose quotes you will see in the preview player’s book coming soon.

Hrolf belongs to the Hallharn raiding clan but his exploits have been such that he is well respected by most of the other raiders. He is good natured, a capable warrior, and a natural leader. Over his long career sailing the Serpent Sea he has collected numerous stories so a journey across land and water with him is never lacking in boastful tales of great deeds and glory earned.

Hrolf begins the campaign by assembling a crew of raiders to investigate strange activity in the far south of the Serpent Sea, away from any of the established raider strongholds. So disturbing are recent events that Hrolf’s crew consists of raiders from numerous clans. All raiders are concerned… and they trust Hrolf to overcome any obstacles to better understand the situation.

But Hrolf is woefully unprepared to understand what he will discover and he — and the heroes who will join him — will be hard pressed to survive long enough to bring news of their discovery to the great seers of the clans…
