Norm Gunderson is one of the two adorable rat folk who are part of our adventuring party. Norm is a retired doctor who practices practical medicine rather than magical healing. His rapier is quick and his nose is cute. Norm is never far from his wife, Marge, especially in the heat of combat, where they stand practically on top of one another providing an extra challenge for their opponents.
Norm is played by Zac Kreitler. Zac is a level 0 commoner with one rank in profession strings and one rank in profession cook. He has a beautiful 10 year old son named Jackson who just rolled up his first character this year! He is also the editor for The Dimension Door Podcast, so if his character saves the day...
Marge Gunderson is the second half of the Gunderson couple. A retired nurse and cavalier, she is always nearby to protect the party with her shield and mount, Ghost - a giant weasel. Marge and Norm returned to visit the warren where they were both born. Celebrating their retirement, the couple is embarking on the next chapter in their life. They set out in search of a new adventure, and what they'll find will be that and so much more.
Marge is played by Amanda Kreitler. Amanda currently Co-GM's the Iron Gods Adventure with her husband, Zac Krietler.
The mysterious drifter known only as Valdeen has a stern demeanor and frank way of speaking which may deter some. When it comes down to it, however, he is efficient, perceptive, and dangerous. Valdeen is accustomed to moving from place to place, chasing what jobs he can come by before moving on. Now that he has stumbled into this job in Heldren, he will have to learn to work with a new group of people as they venture toward something much more important than a paycheck.
Valdeen is played by David Miller. David currently plays in James' Rise of the Runelords game.
Vasilisa Morozova is the only active resident of the town of Heldren, where our story begins. She took over several years ago as the town's hedge witch and fortune teller. Hailing from the far north, she moved to the south where the temperatures are more bearable than the frozen cold of her home country. This failed winter witch has found happiness in her summer patron, Vara, and often seeks guidance through her Harrow cards.
Vasilisa is played by Elizabeth Wilcox. Elizabeth is a creative writer with a degree in English Literature. She writes the narrative adaptations for each episode, and is the head of social media. She is currently crafting a home-brew Pathfinder campaign set in Kaer Maga and heavily inspired by occult, Lovecraftian themes.
