"Gareth Plucker - an angry feathery worker"

Life always been hard on Gareth, or at least that's what he always say. No matter how lucky hes been or whatever he achieved he'd feel like he lost out on something. He's the "glass is almost empty" type of guy. As such, he's been moaning and complaining about all the work he ever had to do, and as a result his employers (and most other sensible folk) would after time get enough of his whining and dismiss him. And then Gareth would be right, life was hard on him. The job he now holds, at a small feathery, is the one he's had the longest. The reason for this is threefold. It's not a very well regarded job, it does not pay much and most important, there is not really anyone else around to listen to him complain. And once again, Gareth is right, life is hard on him, so he have every right to complain. Unlike comparable places in Albionica, here in Cushington, the feathers are groomed off and the geese keep alive. The Cushington geese have an incredible soft down, and the best way to harvest it, is to brush or comb the geese every morning with a special brush. It's a tedious job and one have to be gentle, for the geese will have no one plucking their feathers, so to say. And so the workers have to keep there nerve while working. As for poor Gareth he have had to bite down really hard. He's already lost a finger and part of his ear form the snapping beaks of the geese after taking his frustration out on the birds. So he holds all the frustration and anger back and when his shift is over he have loads of frustration and anger all built up inside. Now what he rally want to do is to kick the birds into bloody Marys. But he have enough sense not to do so, beside he's too scared of the birds to do them any harm. So he heads down to the Brigades barracks, picks up his spear and unloads his frustration onto the strung up sandbag on the training ground. After a few hours of thrusting, jabbing, swinging and hacking he feels better. Not good, no he's never felt good, but well enough to go over to the Crumpet for a dark lager ale. He sit's down and downs a few pints while complaining about how hard life is on him. Eventually he gets so loud and obnoxious, that the other 'flings get enough and throws him out. So once more, Mr. Plucker is right, Life is hard on him.

Warploque Day
This day is celebrated on what is know as 27th of February in our world. In Cushington it is a great feast of food, drink, festivities and art. Pertiqulary the art of well woven and designed cushions. In the town center lies a great park and marked area. This is transfomed into a festival with marked stands and the never ending rows of tables for the thirsty halflings. They also host various games, like archery contest, «hold-your-breath-under-water» contest, guess the amount of feathers in a jar and for the kids it's the «red light» that is the most popluar. But for the adults there are two competitions that is ranked the highest. The «Rawhide rodeo», well it's more like a joust really. Where the bravest of halflings mount up on their huge rawhide cattle (simlar to a musk ox) and try to knock the others of their mount. The haflingsare armed with a «baeljing», a short spear with a 7 feet long chain at the bottom with a small sandbag atached in the end. The bealjing isused as a flail or whip to punch the others with. The halffling that knocks of the most opponents win the round. The other main event of the festival is located in a special stand at the very center. It hold the entires for the cushion desing contest. All capable weaver, seamstress or pillowmaker bring forth there very best cushion. They are left there is piles over night and on the moring of Warploque day the winner will be crowned. It is no halfling that does the judging, nor a normal mortal at all. It is a magical beeing sendt by the creator hmself, Warploque, in the form of a monkey. He is know the the halflings as Warpy.

Warpy -
The manifistation of warploque. He only shows up in town for one day a year, on warploque day. He apears as out of thin air within the special tent in the center of the fair. Though many have tried to spy on the tent to see where Warpy comes from, non have seen it, well atleas seen it and lived to tell about it. During the night the monkey rumages around withing the tent, throwing bad entries out and even destroying some. Others will mystreiously disappeare, never to be seen again. When dawn breaks on Warplpque Day, the curtain will be drawn back and the monkey will valult upon the great cask of ale that is given to the winner. It will stand there for an hour or even two before it finally will reveal the winner. Only to then dive into the piles of cushions and dissapear without a trace. It is customary for the winner of the contest to share his ale with the others, in the pary that follows Warpys anouncement. And in so, even though the award is a large one, it does rearly last the night. But it is all within the spirit of the great feast, of sharing and enjoying good craftmanship, be it pillows or ale. All surviving etries are then retrived by there creators and given to a loved one.

Though the traditon for the halflings of Cushington to offer cushions for Warpy to judge, its different in other areas of Hobbleshire. For instance the twin town of Mutton-Chamswicke have tapestries of ironwoll and in Milwood they present carvings from wood for the monkey to judge. It is even said that in Albionica there are thoes that celebrat Warploque day too, and there it's the art of swords that is on display.

Orville Stout.
This happy young lad is the third son in pig farmer Beddict Stout. The family owns a few acre of muddy land and this is perfect for fostering hogs. So the family but it to use and constantly have to maintain fences to keep the wild pork within the premises. As fruits for their hard work they enjoy the best bacon in Cushington. Young Orville was set to watch the pigs from an early age and had a fight or two each week with piglets to make them behave. All this exercise made him a very strong lad and joining the brigade was something he wanted for as long as he could remember. His strength and agility have made him very versatile and he can join any unit and do a good job. But even if he is an able hand both in the brigade and at the farm.  It is at the festival and the taverns he really excel. He consume beer like a sponge and eat like a bear. He tells the best stories and is great fun to be around during a party. The word around town is that if you get him drunk enough he'll invite the entire party over for some of that special triple star Stout bacon. That is only served on special occasions to very special guest of Beddict Stout. No wonder Orville get free drinks from people he don't really know. With that in mind it would be no surprise if he spread the word himself, and might even have done a stunt or two to fuel the rumours.

Aeleck Dawnhunter
Hi is a magician and wizard. A conjurer of amazing stuff. He can blast trolls bits and even stand his ground against a mighty dragon. Well that's what that they say, anyways.  As far as the lazy folk of Cushington have seen, it's the fireworks that amaze them the most.  And there is no city feast without Aeleck sending up some Mind blowing crackling creations. Hi is indeed very creative and whenever people think they have seen it all and know what to expect, he keeps surprising them. Though they might have to wait a bit longer than they want. And when he does launch his creations it is all party for all there on in.

Mr. Dawnrobber live a rather secretive life.  He can travel far and wide and bring back tales of animated skeletons and huge non flying birds. But even if he shares the things he'd seen, he never tell why he left and what his job was. One would then imagine that all these secrets and missions untold world hold a huge reward and that Aeleck would live in an abundant abode. But alas that is not the case.  His home is small and due to the many travels and probably a thin purse it is in a poor state. Every other year or so, the community comes together and kick up some funds and man hours to fix his place up some.

Puppy  the dog

Although his master Aeleck works miracles with his tricks and in his creations. He is not very imaginative when it came to naming his pets. The dog was but a pup when he got him and was called the puppy. He might at some point have come up with a genuine name, but old habits and all that. So he gave it up and stuck with the only name the dog actually responded to. This small companion follow Aeleck on all his travels, his legs might be short, but so are the legs of a halfling. It is said that Puppy fights to protect it's master when things get hairy. He might be of small stature, but what he lacks in size he more than make up for in temper. Aeleck have told of a time when the cute little mutt scared of Demonfly (a huge monster that is in the shape of a dragonfly, with scorpion tail and bat wings). It's safe to say that this animal have a very special place in its Masters heart.

Donnovan Roseworth. A master thruster.

Everyone knows that ladies like a man in uniform. That's why this fellow joined the militia and take pride in keeping the uniform in mint condition. Donnovan is famous for his charm, smooth pick up lines, his well built body (just look at that adorable belly) and his breathtaking thrusting ability. It is well known that he loves the hunt more than he loves the girl. But still the women think they will be the one who will make him settle down. Some even try again and again. But every time it ends in tears and a broken heart, and a broken nose if a boyfriend or husband find out. Still, mr. Roseworth have an amazing ability to allow the storm to pass, the dust to settle and still be standing strong. His strong backbone and unfaltering faith in himself, he brings along when he go into battle. After all, his nose have never been broken.

Tanner Nugget
This lad avoid the company of others as much and as often as he can. He'd much rather be in solitude on the seter, with only the livestock for company. Some say he's a coward who fled to the outpost, but that's not the case. Tanner stands his ground against all manner of wild beasts and raiders. He have not lost a single animal for as long as he stayed out there. But he is scared, scared of what people say and what they think of him. As a young boy he was bullied and excluded by the other kids. He tried to play along, but was either pushed aside or given a beating by the bigger boys. Sadly things did not get any better when he got older and tried to approach the lasses. He was played and ridiculed by the ones he fancied, only getting giggles, strange looks and a utterly broken heart. For that reason he only comes into town when he have to, like the militia training. Here he's been assigned the sword group. He finds comfort in his shield, to cover himself up and let it take the punishment. Feeding on old bad feelings, picturing past (and present) bullies and then channelling it as rage towards the enemy. This results in him standing his ground and not giving an inch. This have been noticed by the commander and other militias. Truth is that they respect Tanner and count him as one of their own. Despite this mr. Nugget turns his back to them, cover behind his shield and keeps to himself. Counting time until he can put the town behind him and get back to his seter, where he finds peace, solitude and the bitter sweet loneliness.

Randulf Boutshanke.

This fella love to be noticed and being the centre of attention. He’s always around when something is happening and whenever he gets a chance, he’ll tell the tales (even the ones he did not see first hand. but he’ll never admit to that). Some say he’s a clown, that might be so, but he is a good clown. He provide great entertainment and makes people laugh. He does however try to uphold his reputation as a hero, so he prefer to tell tales of others mistakes and is not ashamed to ridicule others. He have found that some guys are easy to make fun of and it also give him extra attention and response. Some of the others, on the other hand, are hardly mentioned, but have to be mentioned from time to time. Just to make sure they know their place.This tactic have gotten him into trouble quite a few times, particularly with the sergeants of the brigade. As they are very popular to make fun of and pulling of a good story gives him a high status in the group. This status is all important to Randulf, and he would be nothing without it. So he uses all and every opportunity to defend it. As such he steals the limelight from others when he can. The others in the militia don’t like this, but have accepted it in fear of getting on the wrong end of Randulfs. After all they have seen what he is capable of doing. Where there is smoke there is fir and Boutshanke is not just a big mouth and no punch. He did get drafted into the sword and shield militia for a reason. He is as tough as nails and can hold his ground even if he is facing far superior foes or numbers. This is another reason for the other brigade members to get in behind Randulf and not give him a reason to pick on them.

Georg Puntervoll.
.
There are many halfling in the Borgund region that you can trust. But not all of them are honest and honourable and the ones that is are often very respected. George is one of them. He does not have a high position in the community not is the regarded as wealthy, but he always keeps his word. Furthermore he makes the sensible decision even if it's the harder option. As a result the other halflings know they can trust him and even help them with disputes. It's not like he's a judge or anything. Just the informal advice over a few pints. Puntervoll provide advice and his friends have learned the hard way that it's a good idea to do as he says. It is this trait that led him to get into the sword and shield militia. There is no one else his friends would rather have by their side than George. Also it is rather scary to get up close with someone that is out to kill you, but it's a job someone have to do. Knowing this, George found it to be the right choice and volunteered.

Nå som George Puntervoll er ferdig har jeg nådd en milepæl i brigade prosjektet mitt. Det står nemlig ett komplett start sett ferdig malt i skapet mitt. Pluss flere spennende karakterer, monstre og terreng biter. Et startsett består av 5 buer, 4 spyd, 3 skjold og en kaptein.

Neste skritt er å legge til de andre modellene som finnes til rasen.

Damien Argyle

This weaver have a precision, dedication and persistence that surpass all other making fabric in the region. His shuttle moves at great speed and the slamming of his waft beats a fast pace rhythm as he batters up the fell. Others have tried to keep up but they either fall behind or they mess up the fabric. Damien like to experiment on patterns and design. This have been awarded with a few Warploque day cushion awards and his best design have been adapted by the town, the diamond pattern known as argyle. Even though his skill with the threads is beyond comparison it is not the reason he's been awarded the honour to carry the city's colours. That honour have been won, as tradition is, by a drinking contest. After Damien won his first cushion contest he challenged the current banner bearer. The cushion contest prize keg was opened and it was on. For a long while it was a dead run and half way through non showed sign of surrender. It was at this time that mr Argyle mistook a soup bowl for his beer mug. The spoon in the soup was jammed into his left eye as he downed the soup and set the bowl down to grab another mug. Not showing any sign of pain. The opponent stopped mid way through his pint, in complete disbelief of what was unfolding in front of him. As Damien continued downing pints he was then crowned as Cushington standard bearer.
