Rudi's Story 05 - Where Rudi's Vices and Virtues Are Revealed To The Reader

There are two things that need to be understood about Rudi Tumblefar. The first is he has an inflated ego, and thinks the world needs to recognize. He wants to walk into a room, and have people realize, this is the smartest, toughest, most handsome Halfling – no, PERSON they’ve ever seen. “Think big,” he’d say, his voice full of his hopes and dreams. And the hardest, most brilliant people in the room would wish they were him, and the most beautiful women would want to be with him. But the road to get there is one that takes hard work, and diligence, and Rudi Tumblefar would much prefer the easy path. It hurts less, and there’s usually a lot more food, and a lot more beer along the way. The second is that for all his dreams, he has no idea what he’s talking about with fame and fortune, or how to even start getting there. His unworldliness leaves a naiveté about him, expecting the best from people and situations, and causing his eagerness to fulfill his dream to be bundled up with him trying to impress his new group of friends. Because in his mind’s eye, that’s what they are, or at the very least he wishes they were. Hearing the stories from his friends Lessys and Barril in New Dawn Valley about the camaraderie among an adventuring group, how it felt like a family, it makes him yearn for that. A far cry from being picked on by all the other people his own age. It causes him to take risks someone more adept with social situations might avoid, the most recent one being jumping onto a giant centipede a la Faedrian.

So the young halfling blunders along with the other Kingmakers, totally oblivious to the bigger role the group is playing in the region. No one told him they were out making a king in the region after all. He just thinks him and his new friends are out making their way in the world, a band of brothers (and sister!) fighting to get what’s theirs. With himself leading the charge of course.
