Return to Sutek - The First Batch of Characters (Nobility)

Classic depiction of a Hawkwood from the
Fading Suns rulebooks.
The first batch of characters in GM Bobby's Fading Suns campaign is nobility heavy.

Most notable -- due to the number of times that the other characters used his name -- was Baron Kendrake Hawkwood. Relatively inactive in the beginning of the game, but often talked about and used as a source of convenient authority throughout the investigation, he eventually became central to the resolution of the first phase of the adventure.

As an interesting counterpoint, there are two members of House Decados clan -- traditional rivals of House Hawkwood. Fortunately, these Decados were no longer directly affiliated with their House. Lt. Sincerity Decados owes at least part of her allegiance to the Charioteer Guild; the other Decados (whose name escapes me right at this moment) has given his allegiance to the Emperor and is an Imperial Questing Knight.

Last of the nobility was my own character, lifted straight from Redbrick's Adventure Shard "A Road So Dark" was Sir Raimon Keddah. My character was fairly instrumental early on with his use of the cybernetic Spy Eye to record the escape of the suspected murderer from the deceased Sir Gerald Hawkwood (Imperial Questing Knight)'s room.


  1. Damn I'm so jealous. I'm not one of those gamers who can talk for hours about a favorite setting or character -with one exception. I loved playing Baron Manfred Von Dextrite (the surgeon/duellist & Merchantile Envoy for House Dextrite's infamous "Medical Research" project) so much that I must talked about him everytime the Fading Sun's setting was mentioned for about a year after the game folded.
    The Fading Sun's remain my favorite sci-fi setting to this day. I'm really looking forward to reading more about how you guys get on. Any chance of an actual play report?

  2. I'll probably post one this weekend. What's stopping me is the spelling of the names of the other characters and the NPCs.

    I didn't take enough notes!

  3. My players hassle me about spelling names all the time. If you ever notice a character in my play reports who seem's familiar but has a name you don't recognise, that's why.


That's my side of things. Let me know what you think, my friend.
