NPC of the Week: A Slippery Spy

Le  Serpent started as a random encounter as part of a roll with Rory's Story Dice that turned up a spy and some rolling on the Mythic GameMaster Emulator. My wife was kind enough to play Le Serpent (who at that time didn't have a name) and did such a great job that he ended up with Silver Tongue based on her inspired heart attack trick and the name Le Serpent based on his wriggly attempts to escape and his slippery personality. Afterwards he was recruited by Guy de Bourges as a trusted companion (one of the Boons in H+I).
