Cursed by the Gods
Conchobhar Turlach Shortstone
Ship’s Musician and Rigger
Conchobhar Shortstone is a handsome, honey-tongued gnome who wears a foppish purple hat, an eye patch, and a white silk shirt, and carries a dandyish cane. His appearance is that of someone pretending to be a pirate, rather than a true buccaneer.
He has ostentatiously used magic to clean himself up and to generally keep up appearances.
Conchobhar is a professional gambler who made the mistake of drinking with the Wormwood’s crew one night and failed to notice the cosh in a crew member’s hand until it was too late. Conchobhar is resigned to his fate but is determined to make the most of it, as he’s always yearned for the sea anyway. One thing dominates Conchobhar’s thinking—himself.
Conchobhar is also a serial womanizer, and female characters gain a +2 bonus on all checks to influence him. He finds Rosie Cusswell magnificent.
Since the mutiny, Conchobhar has been estatic. Of the mind that it was ridiculous that there was no such thing a Ship’s Musician officer until now, he hails every action of his new officer’s as sheer brilliance. At the Captain’s insistance, he has ceased attempting to court Rosie, and pines for the day the crew hires a woman whose response to his advances isn’t some combination of condescension, giggling, or violence. However, he has been whipped significantly less than before, and he can’t help but enjoy himself these days in spite of his loneliness.
