Soppfolk are small humanoids that basically look like a human child, with short arms and legs, with a mushroom on their head. The Mushrooms on their heads can range in color from green, to black, to red, to purple, and the patterns on the mushrooms can be from polka dots, to star shaped.
Playing a Soppfolk
Soppfolk, as you earlier read, love music and arts, but they also love adventure. While most stay in there home town and play pranks on their neighbors or go on small adventures, some choose to leave and become adventures. These Soppfolk are usually the most curious among them, wanting to see the outside world and maybe even slay some monsters.
Soppfolk Characteristics: adventurous, funny, curious, playful, tricky, thoughtful, and, mischievous
Male Names: Soup, Carrot, Jog, Sandpaper, Wax
Female Names: Apple, Frost, Dust, Minty, Cookie
Three sample Soppfolk adventurers are described below.
Apple is a sorcerer. She lives in the basement of a kind candy shop owner in the small town where she grew up. The shop owner was nice enough to let her practice her sorcery in his basement, which, unfortunately, has led to many accidents in the candy shop, the owner often helps her clean up the mess she made, and treats her like a daughter. One day her adoptive father goes missing and she is on the hunt to find the kind old man.
Soup is a rogue. He makes a living by stealing and smuggling treasure through the large city where he lives. He gambles all his money away and is often drunk, but even so, he is still an exceptional fighter and thief (however, we cannot say the same about his skill at cards).
Sandpaper is an avenger. He travels with a group of adventurers, and they are all very close friends. But recently one of his closest friends, Daniel, has gone rogue and is allied with an evil demon prince known as Demogorgon. The team is looking for Daniel, hoping they can talk some sense into him, but Sandpaper is afraid that he may have to kill his former friend.
