Midweek Character - Tenla the Rock

Here is the first Gloranthan HeroQuest character I have put up.
She started off as a NPC that helped the player characters in times of trouble.
She was a crazy, angry Vinga worshipper prone to fighting first and asking questions later!
She always covered the PCs' escape when they faced dire odds yet she managed to always return from certain death.
I then planned to run a scenario at Convulsion 2002 and needed some extra player characters so Tenla got promoted!
Since then she has caused more mayhem and disruption to the enemies of the White Ram Clan.



Tenla’s Story

“I don’t believe in ‘justice’, I believe in vengeance and I believe in killing the bastard!”.

Athletic, robust, tall, and strong with natural ginger hair and a fiery temper to match. Yet during combat she is a calm tactical warrior with superior judgement.

She is always in competition with men, racing, boozing and wrestling with them. She got her name (contrary to her nature) by her rocksmashing slice talent. She was renowned for her jollity until her father and brother were slain by Arrantha the Axe - nowadays she laughs no more.

She now reveres Vingan Avenger, has forged her reprisal sword ‘Retaliation’ aided by the DeathLords and has learnt counter-axe techniques to aid her aspiration.
