    What does Gillie Dhu look like?

    Was the basic physical description left out intentionally so that we could use our own vision, or was it simply an oversight? Was he modeled after any specific type of creature? Either way, how did others describe him, or imagine he looks?
    If any of this has already been addressed in a previous thread, please point me to it. Thanks!

    Early in the adventure path we ran a Kickstarter to try to 'beautify' the modules, but it didn't reach its goal, so we had to cut back on some illos.

    I happened to use a miniature for a satyr when I ran this encounter, so when my players asked what he looked like, I just pointed at the figure and said "that, but like, with leaves and branches sticking out everywhere."

    Which, turns out isn't too far off.

    I donated to that Kickstarter, and was really disappointed when it didn't fund.

    When i read it, i thought to myself that his name seemed very authentic. It didn't even occur to me to research him.

    So, handsome and woodsman-y or hostile and dangerous?

    I envisioned a boisterous man with a big bushy beard, so more the former, just a bit high-energy.
