Hunter's Folly [RPG]


Josh Vogt's Hunter's Folly, a 4-part series of free Pathfinder web fiction (available here) is a really fun little tale about a trio of friendly rivals who have made a bet about who can be the first to capture a chimera.  The tale takes place outside Whistledown, the gnome village that might be familiar to readers who have played APs set in Varisia.  The three friends (a merchant, an artist, and a warrior) are really well-depicted with memorable personalities, and there's some excellent twists along the way.  There's nothing of earth-shaking importance going on here, but it's a fun character study that's worth reading for something a little lighter.


Part Two has a great scene where the chimera surprises its would-be hunters, and the description makes the beast sound truly terrifying.  The beast kidnaps Tali, the artist (my favourite of the characters) in Part Three, and there's another great battle-scene in Part Four along with a nice twist at the end.  I really liked the three characters here, and would happily read more about them.
