How would you add Ronnie James Dio into your campaign?
-Vorpal flamberge rapier (always goes straight through the heart)
-Leather pants of abdominal thrusting (+1 to hit high notes)
-Slashed silk leg warmers
-Giant police badge
3rd Level Lich Bard. +2 Perform (Singing). Usurps and replaces 14 Level Human Bard in the party of traveling Bards of Doom, troupe. They never achieve quite the greatness that they did before the human bard was replaced.
>Boring Power-Rangers MOTW-sending Ghost-Pokemon version of Dio
>Not genuinely-original-take-on-vampires and a genuine potagonist-killigly vicious, perfectly evil parallel to a perfectly virtuous protagonist Dio Brando
When it's time to reward the bard, there is a skeleton with a prominent bald spot in the dungeon, clutching a magic guitar.
I run a Fate/ game.
He is already the final boss of the entire fucking setting.
