Inspired in Japan
Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things, by Lafcadio Hearn, is a great read if you like your horror with a distinctive Japanese flavour.
As tough as their mountain homes, the hardy dwarves make their stand against the coming darkness. But it is a losing battle which they wage against the forces of the Abyss, as their numbers slip ever more rapidly into decline.
I love dwarves, I enjoy playing them and I feel I really understand them as a race, so I’m very glad to present them to you this week on the Avernos Wiki

If you play Magic the Gathering, even half as much as I do, then you probably have a bunch of cards like these.
In the spirit of Reuse, Reduce and Recycle, I turned mine into NPC cards.
Choose a side. I picked the sides that had cool characters and monsters .
Use correction tape or stickers to make some writing space.
Add some text with a marker. I chose 4 points; Name, Race and Apparent Occupation (not class, because my “paladin” might actually be a rogue posing as one), Demeanor (how the character behaves) and Speech Quirks (how the character talks. Are they soft spoken or haughty? Do they have a lisp or do they tend to drone on and on and …)
Sleeve them. Shuffle them. Use them.
The final product looks pretty good. And they work well with my NPC Strategy Cards too, simple sleeve them together.
That’s all from me until next week.
