Bonedoggle took the phrase “it’s what’s inside that counts” literally, and has lead a movement to reveal the evil bones of Dragonsmaw Manor’s most controversial celebrities. He’s wanted in several districts for the crime of bone theft, has never commented on the goodness or badness of his own skeleton, and thinks invertebrates are divine creatures.
She’s got a wife on the other side who guides her deck as she tells your fortune. No soothsayer anywhere in Furvilla is as accurate as this power couple, but beware to mind your manners; if you flirt with either of them, the other may become enraged and lay down a multi-generational curse upon your family.
Lialvick, The Decayed
Lialvick met an untimely death at the hands of a necromancer. The necromancer, however, would raise Lialvick as one of his own.

This mysterious figure wanders the wilderness of Dragonsmaw, seeking forgotten souls killed by monsters and laying in abandoned graveyards, raising them from the dead for a second chance in un-life.

Once a simple lumberjack named Almond, she fell in love with a fierce alpha werewolf and begged to be bitten so she could leave the lumbermill and be one with the woods. Aldergash now runs with the pack and her love burns with the force of a thousand hearts- and a thousand hearts is exactly what she plans for her engagement gift to be!
Superia ven Acava
A famous and respected blood connoisseur from a noble lineage. Her reviews are published weekly in a prestigious newspaper in the Dragonsmaw capital city, and she's never missed a deadline.

Doctor Ido Watiwant
Reality is arbitrary in the paws of the self-proclaimed Doctor Ido Watiwant. This master alchemist is on a mission to make sure every villager is comfortable in their own bodies. They change their form to whatever they feel like, whenever they feel like, sometimes even mid-conversation!
This version of the battleground is much easier than the original as the level requirement was lowered.
Even after all the nerfs, Aldergash was removed from the battleground a few days into the event. When she returned, her Regeneration ability was gone as it was too powerful against weaker warriors. This ability gave Aldergash a buff that healed her for 700 every turn.
