Today’s Wednesday Warrior is one that I made several years ago when I first started making these characters. As usual it’s based on on of the paper minis made by Printable Heroes, but unlike most of the others it’s based on an exclusive mini. You could only get the Phytomancer if you were a Patreon supporter. Because of that, I didn’t feel comfortable sharing the PDF character sheet with the public. But as I’ve stopped making PDFs (for the time being at least), and as the featured image for this post was shared publicly on the Printable Heroes tumblr, I feel it’s okay.
Looking at the character now, there are a few things I would change. As I made this Wood Elf Druid a few years ago, I see now that I’ve repeated a few stunts on other characters (which I suppose is inevitable), and some of the aspects are too similar to other characters I’ve made more recently. Still, I like the character. I like that this druid’s “attuned land” (to borrow a Dungeon World phrase) is a swamp. I feel that’s not something you see all that often in D&D inspired fantasy.

- Bramble Binder: Because I can summon plant vines and creepers from the earth, I can Quickly create an advantage to bind or ensnare my opponent. The first time each scene someone tries to break free of my snares, the opposition increases by +2.
- Extremely Disturbing: Because I know how to creep people out, I get +2 to Cleverly create an advantage to instill fear or disgust in my opponents.
- The Withering: Because I can drain life force with my touch, whenever I Sneakily attack a living target and succeed with style, I choose one: remove a free invoke from an aspect on that enemy or upgrade the boost from my success with style into an aspect with a free invoke.

The character illustration is the exclusive Phytomancer paper mini made by Printable Heroes. The free versions are backless, but if you support the Patreon at just $1 a month you get minis with backs. For $2 a month you get access to “reskins”, and for $3 a month you get multiple color options. That’s a fantastic deal.
