NPC: Antigone Price


A grandmotherly figure who’s almost all wrinkles sits in a rocking chair, knitting a doily in the shape of a heart. It’s not quite finished, and the incomplete bit makes it look as if the heart is starting to tear in two from the top. The grandmotherly figure is smiling and winking at the viewer. A small side table next to her has a double-portrait picture frame and a fancy jewelry box.

We warmly welcome Victoria Rogers and David Joyce as Cloud Curio’s first guest designer and artist, just in time for the culmination of Spooky Season!


Antigone Price is the first entry in a trilogy of connected pieces: an NPC, a plot hook, and an item, all of which together tell a tale of haunted romance.


At the end of this three-act drama, stay tuned for a 1-page adventure incorporating all three of Victoria’s pieces!


You can find information for all of our collaborators here.

 

Title: Antigone Price

Short description: People fail to see old women. We blend into the background, even as matchmakers. That’s fine. A nudge here and a nudge there gets people where they need to be.

Flavor text: It is not a gift to be able to predict the future but a skill, my dear, a skill you can cultivate. The multiverse is just waiting for you to read it.
