Fate and the Fablemaidens is a Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition actual-play podcast by four friends who love goofs and games.
Under the unpredictable guidance of Fate (Renee Rhodes), three adventurers – Merryweather (Rebecca Eckert), the gnome artificer; Wynni (Laura Hutton), the halfling bard; and Twyddle (Samantha Turley), the changeling barbarian – are thrown together on a fateful trip. When they set sail that day, all they planned for was a relaxing, three-day boat tour – a pleasure cruise. Instead, the world starts falling apart around them – literally.
Fate directs the story and introduces the non-player characters, setting, and plot as the Fablemaidens strike out on their adventure.
The name “Twyddle Twaddle” comes from the high school nicknames of Renee, Rebecca, and Laura: the Three Tweedle Twins. Twyddle is a changeling barbarian with a tribe member background. Twyddle’s weapon of choice is her handy beartrap, and she is off adventuring in search for excitement and a potential mate to bring back to her tribe.
Wynni is a young halfling bard loosely inspired by J. R. R. Tolkien’s Peregrin Took. Her preferred weapon is inspiration or a rapier, if inspiration won’t cut it. She comes from a long line of adventurers and is looking forward to experiencing the world for herself.
Merryweather is a gnome artificer gunsmith with a sailor's background. She is exuberant, curious, and loyal. Basically just imagine a golden retriever, but as a tiny person...with a giant gun. There is nothing that Merryweather loves more than tinkering and adventuring. She simply must learn it all! And with her long gnomish life-span, she plans to do just that.
