H is for Halfling Gourmand

"Who am I? I'm just a simple halfling with a love for life. Where am I from? Here and there. My journey started in Faerun, but I've seen many worlds and places since then. Okay, now that I've answered your questions, I have one for you. Are you going to pass that bottle?"

Cade Ashworthy is a gluttonous halfling planeswalker and hedonist. Originally from a small town on the Sword Coast, a mishap in his studies transported him to a Sensate feasthall in Sigil. While he didn't agree with everything they taught him, the once moderate halfling became something of an epicurean after his exposure to the faction.

Cade's goal in life is to travel the prime material and planes and try as much new food and drink as possible. Cade's an easy going guy and has been known to travel with adventuring parties when he feels he needs some extra muscle.


  1. And here's the man himself! Nice writeup; I love his motivation and could see using him in a wide variety of games...

    1. I designed him to be a character that anyone could drop into their game with minimal work.
