Yolanda Vorloi's Character Sheet - Tales of Mystara, a Solo DnD Campaign

A great comic book artist and friend of mine Justin Pfeil drew Yolanda Vorloi. If you are a subscriber to my YouTube Channel, or my solo DnD podcast 'Tales of Mystara' then you will know that this is one of the characters in my solo adventuring party. I thought I would dedicate a post on this blog to display the art the Justin made, which is a true likeness and based on a description I provided. The same description is also given on Episode 8 of Tales of Mystara.

Yolanda Vorloi - Tales of Mystara, a Solo DnD Campaign

If you aren't familiar with Tales of Mystara: Tales of Mystara is a mixture between a solo Dungeons & Dragons campaign, a dark fantasy novel and a narrated audio dramatization. The rules of the table top and the roll of the dice dictate where the story goes as well as whether a character lives or dies. Nothing is precious and no one is safe from the roll of the dice…

As well as the awesome artwork depicting Yolanda, I've decided to provide information from Yolanda's Character Record Sheet. Feast your eyes...

I would also highly recommend that you check out the brilliant work Justin does on his web comic's, which include The Keep on the Borderlands, A Duel in Padua, and a few others. Justin can be found on Twitter @comics_alert and his official website is justinpfeil.com

Enjoy :)

Character Background Information

Yolanda Vorloi is a human thief of neutral alignment. She is a member of the Vorloi clan of Specularum, a very wealthy and titled Thyatian family. She is the niece of Barron Phillip Vorloi and as a young girl, she was very close to her cousin Marianna, her uncle's daughter and also his pride and joy. Yolanda’s family is the third corner of the triangle of Great Families in Specularum, and often clashes with the Torenescu and Radu clans. As a Court Lady, her formal title is Lady Vorloi, but as an adventurer, she does not use this formality, nor does she adorn her family crest, in an effort to keep unwanted attention at bay.

Yolanda also has ties with the Kingdom of Thieves. She has worked for them many times as a talented scout who has a picture perfect memory, she has been an asset. She can commit the general layout of a building to memory.

Yolanda is 24 years of age, but intelligent beyond her years. She is 5’ 3' ' tall and of elfin build - a little smaller than the average Thyatian woman and although weaker in physical strength, she makes up for this with her swift agility. She has dark brown hair and brown eyes. Her complexion is tanned and she wears her hair in a single long braid.

Although Yolanda is a thief, it is not obvious, she dresses like most adventurer’s do, in fairly common although expensive quality fashion. This includes black ankle length trousers, fine leather armour, a good sword belt with an ornate sword sheathed to her side and a bow and quiver of arrows strapped to her back.

Yolanda could be described as selfish and is likely to save herself before she will help others. She is also quite ruthless at times, and will willingly slice the throat of a sleeping enemy without hesitation.

How to Play Dungeons & Dragons Solo - Part 1 - Which Ruleset? A Solo DnD Tutorial

Hello and welcome to this blog. “ How to Play Dungeons & Dragons Solo ” . This blog will explore the concept of playing Dungeons & Dragons solo . This means playing the game completely by yourself with no Dungeon Master. The idea to write this blog naturally developed from a YouTube video series I created back in July 2020, dedicated to the process of how to start and run a Dungeons & Dragons solo campaign . I was increasingly requested to write all the information down to aid my viewers and provide something that brought all the information together in a concise format. How to Play Dungeons & Dragons Solo - Part 1 - Which Ruleset? A Solo DnD Tutorial In this blog I will present the information from the original videos (which I would advise watching in full as a reading accompaniment to obtain the full context) and expand upon it, showing you in further detail how to design and play a solo Dungeons & Dragons campaign by yourself with no involvement from

How to Play Dungeons & Dragons Solo - Part 10 - Adventure Backgrounds, a Solo DnD Tutorial

I have some very functional procedures for generating coastlines, rivers, lakes, wilderness and dungeons, as well as interesting features, such as ruins, monuments, strange dwellings that exist off the beaten track, settlements both large and small and strongholds of different shapes and sizes. All this content along with the solo mechanics I have developed, make for a fairly satisfactory solo experience so far, but as I stated in the previous article: "the work is never done". There is still plenty to cover and plenty more things to be developed further. In particular, to create a deeper sense of immersion I want to look into methods for creating rich, immersive descriptions and backstory to help solidify my solo DnD game world so it can be brought to life. One important bit of backstory to be included is a background story to describe the adventure at hand, what is actually going on? What is the motivation for my character or party, why are they going on an adventure? An

How to Play Dungeons & Dragons Solo - Part 3 - Dungeon Generation, a Solo DnD Tutorial

Welcome to my blog, How to Play Dungeons & Dragons Solo , dedicated to playing Dungeons & Dragons solo using Basic D&D rules. This series of blog posts is based on a YouTube video series I started back in July 2020 and is all about working out a way to play solo Dungeons & Dragons games . The aim is to develop a suitable rule system so that a game of D&D can be played without the need for any other players or a Dungeon Master. How to Play Dungeons & Dragons Solo - Part 3 - Dungeon Generation, a Solo DnD Tutorial In the first post I discussed the different iterations of the game, which are available, as well as which one would be the most suitable to use for a solo DnD campaign . I've decided to go with the BECMI Basic D&D rules written by Frank Mentzer and published in 1983. I also briefly talked about the stationary and equipment needed to play. I recommended the use of stationary over digital tools to encourage playing in an old school way, bu
