Devious Rex – Devious is a sorcerer of no mean skill. In fitting with the times, there’s also a full page of read-aloud backstory introduction about how the party was gathered together and sent on the rescue mission by Ignax’s rival wizard Candelabra who’s busy schtupping the queen and doesn’t seem all that eager to see the king return – which is presumably why he’s sending a bunch of adventurers on the mission instead of doing it himself which is both not as funny as it seems to think it is and entirely dispensable.

In recognition of that, New Infinities framed the adventure as an intentionally “retro” experience as far as I’m aware the first rpg product to be marketed that abeuctionwhich in retrospect is sort of a mixed blessing.

Dexpot is armed with a magical warhammer that would return to his hand after being thrown.
