Looking for ideas!
My party members are helping a conclave of wizards complete a ritual by rooting out the traitor among their 4 lieutenants. I want each to be a unique, iconic magic-user for the party to investigate. So far I’ve got:
(these are descriptive names, not npc names 🙂
Golem-mancer – has created a variety of golems, and his flesh golem poses as him. The real wizard’s body is kept safe inside the large iron golem.
Enchanter – a throng of dominated and enchanted humanoids, all dressed similarly – which among them is the real mage?
Drug addict – uses illegal substances to boost spellcasting, at the cost of sanity and health.
I’m still looking for one more strong thematic take on a mage, and haven’t come up with anything on my own. Would love your help thinking dangerously and portraying a fantastic world.
