Every Sunday, I'll have a completely homebrewed Dungeons and Dragons 4th Edition element that you can use in your games. I do take requests so you can either post a comment here, email me at email@example.com with the subject "Homebrew Request", or send me a tweet on Twitter (@brannonhutchins) with the hashtag #weekly4e.
Once again, the Humor Campaign rears its ugly head on this blog (remember these old articles?). This time the Gingerbread Folk appear, but only a tiny morsel at a time. Due to time, and life, and other things...like Skyrim...the Gingerbread Folk will be appearing in not one, but TWO or THREE Weekly 4e Articles.
In this first of our Gingerbread Folk articles, we look at the common people that inhabit the small villages scattered amongst the Frosted Hills. I give unto you: Gingerbread Folk Part 1: The Village People.
Your mouth starts to salivate at the little houses and people, all made of candy and sugar. And then, you find yourself asking a very difficult moral question: Is it wrong to eat a sentient creature?
Made of ginger, bread, and a little love, Gingerbread Folk hail from the Frosted Hills just beyond Gumdrop Gorge. They may not be large, but they have large spirit.
Happy Demeanor: Gingerbread Folk as largely happy, smiling as they go about their day tending to the Gumdrop Orchard and mining in the Rock Candy Mines. They love to tell jokes and laugh.
Fiercely Loyal: One should never be fooled by the joyous nature of the Gingerbread Folk, for if they feel like their home is threatened, they will rally together and build strength in numbers.
Designer's Notes: It was honestly rather easy to put these creatures together, especially since they have already existed in an older game which was with 3.5th Edition.
Next week we will see the armed forces of the Gingerbread Folk, and possibly something that the players will be able to use.
The Gingerbread Folk were created using Power2ool for Dungeons and Dragons 4th Edition by Wizards of the Coast.
