Worm Fodder: "Des Boskin"

Poor Des. Another character whose story ended prematurely thanks to the whims of the almighty beings controlling his fate. Truly a tragedy. Granted, he kind of deserved it, but... 

NAME: Desrael "Des" Boskin

SYSTEM: Dungeon Crawl Classics

LIFESPAN: Three sessions

ABOUT: Fate held a great fascination for Des. He trusted his life and livelihood to the vagaries of dice, cards, and other games of chance. Thought his luck often failed him, and though his charms often fell flat, he never stopped believing himself to be a consummate rake. He was often known to say, "What a day. What a lovely day."

NOTABLE FEATS: Survived a town filled with cannibal gnomes for weeks; escaped the town of cannibal gnomes into the Deeproads, taking a gnome hostage; was pursued through the Deeproads by an insectoid dragon that sounded like this (play on half speed for full effect); accidentally fed gnome hostage to insectoid dragon, which then obliterated the city of cannibal gnomes. 

CAUSE OF DEATH: In the Deeproads, killed by Gold Eaters for his gold.
