Alright, let's get cracking. First of all, this guy needs his own power level. We'll call it Deep One and say that he gets 65 skill points to go with 38 refresh. This is intended to equal the level of the Senior Council, as written by Deadmanwalking. Those who've seen my Lich writeup on the Various More-Obscure Mythical Creatures thread may notice that this guy is in many ways an upgraded version of the standard lich.

Lich Lord (Deep One)

Stunts:
Master Of Zombies (Lore): Lore complements the attacks of all zombies under your direct command.
Pretty Fly For A Dead Guy (Presence): Ignore 2 shifts worth of social penalties from Living Dead.

So, Tbora, is this what you were looking for?

Fey creatures. Think talking animals/nature spirits. Low to mid level functionaries and goons. Examples would be the talking spiders from Turn Coat (I think it was Turn Coat.)

Low level fey, huh? Pretty broad category. Alright, here are a few possibilities.

Talking Animal

In my opinion, talking animals are best handled as a template to be added to mundane animals. Take a mundane animal from http://www.jimbutcheronline.com/bb/index.php/topic,18099.0.html or www.vinlandsolutions.site11.com/Products/DFRPG/index.html and give it the following skills:
Fair:  Lore, Presence, Deceit
Average: Scholarship, Rapport, Empathy, Intimidation
Powers and stunts are not necessary, but you may want to give them The Sight, Soulgaze, Psychometry, Supernatural Senses, Occultist, Ghost Speaker, or Marked By Power.

This is a response to a request posted to another thread. I had to make another new power level for these guys, called In A Submarine. It offers 21 refresh, 50 skill points, and a skill cap of Fantastic. If anyone has anything to say, be it a compliment, a complaint, or a request, now's the time.

I've finished all the characters requested of me and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, so I'll be moving on to mortal practitioners now. That is, unless somebody jumps in with another request.

Wearing An Extremely Trustworthy Face (Deceit): As long as you are in a certain form, +2 to Deceit.
Founded Upon Lies (Deceit): +2 to any roll in which you tag or invoke an aspect created with Deceit.
Scary As F**k (Intimidation): Intimidate attacks inflict 2 extra stress.
Subtle Menace (Intimidation): Don’t need context of power to use Intimidation.
Polite Threats (Intimidation):  May use Intimidation without being rude or directly threatening someone.
Jester (Performance): +2 to Performance to make jokes and generally be funny.
Pointed Performance (Performance): May use Performance to create specific aspects.
The Opinions Of Humans Are Irrelevant To Me (Presence): Armour 1 against social attacks from humans.
Shield Of Lies (Deceit): Use Deceit, unmodified, to defend against everything in social combat.

The moment has finally arrived: I am beginning to stat out mortal practitioners. First: Paranet.

As I see it, there are likely three distinct classes of Paranet member. The first would be more-or-less ordinary people who have been drawn into the supernatural world somehow and who rely on Paranet for protection. The second would be the low-level spellcasters and minor talents for whom Paranet is like a nation that they live in. Unlike the first group, these people probably don't have day jobs or other solid connections to mundane humanity. The third would be the more powerful supernaturals who protect the ordinary members. Members of this group could be anything from wizards to ensouled ghouls. The "Big Fish In A Little Pond" campaign on the Play-By-Post forum is about a group of these.

Now: stats.

Level One Paranet Member

Level one members are usually normal people with day to day lives in the mundane world of mortal humanity. I order to stat one, take a pure mortal from earlier in this thread or from your own work. Then raise them one power level and give them the following:

Skills:
Fair: Lore
Average: Contacts, Conviction, Discipline
Stunts:
Paranet Member (Contacts): +2 to Contacts when contacting other members of Paranet.

Level Two Paranet Member (On The Beach)

High Concept: Member Of Paranet
Other Aspects: Little Fish, Magical Community
Skills:
Good: Lore, Contacts
Fair: Conviction, Discipline
Average: Resources, Alertness, Scholarship, Investigation, Driving
Stunts:
Paranet Member (Contacts): +2 to Contacts when contacting other members of Paranet.
Powers:
Ritual (Something) [-2] Could also be Channeling or any minor ability except for Marked By Power. Some psychic abilities are also possible.
Total Refresh Cost:
-3
Refresh Total:
1

Level Three Paranet Member

These guys are too diverse for any set of stats. Just take a supernatural (or perhaps occasionally mortal) character of Waist Deep level or higher and, if they have refresh to spare, give them the Paranet Member stunt.

And now for the White Council. Deadmanwalking has already provided pretty good stats for just about every relevant named character in the white council, so just search the forums if you want those. He also worked out stats for a generic wizard and generic apprentice. My stats for the White Council Member and White Council Apprentice will just be slightly edited versions of his. Once I'm done with those, I'll work out stats for an ordinary Warden, Junior Warden, and Senior Council Member. I'll probably also make some Senior Wardens, but no promises.

I'm not sure where to go once I'm done the White Council. I'm thinking of making a Cult Leader and a warlock for each Law. I'd kind of like to do more sorcerers and focused practitioners, but I can't think of any good concepts. Does anybody have any advice? I'd appreciate it.

Glad to hear it, ralexs. Any ideas for mortal practitioners who aren't warlocks or White Council members? Because I'm a bit stumped.

On an unrelated note, the underbelly would probably be better than True Heroism as a catch for the Ordinary Dragon.

Anyway, here are those senior wardens I mentioned earlier:

Here are the last of the Wardens. Relexs1991 asked me in a PM how I would handle a young Warden who was exceptionally skilled for his age. I'd probably just take the Warden Of The White Council, bump up Conviction to Superb, swap Intimidation and Alertness, and drop one of the Average skills. Then I'd mess around with the foci a little. The main differences between the young-but-skilled and the standard are the aspects.

Anyway, here are the other two senior wardens. I wanted to have one for each classical element.

And now for the last member of the White Council. The generic Senior Council member. It might be a bit silly to create generic stats for such powerful and unique beings, but I intend to do it anyway. Don't like it, don't read it.

PS: I've been wondering lately whether or not these are actually useful, so let me ask you all: have you used characters from this thread in your games? And if so, how did they work out?

As for usefulness, I will be using some of the smaller characters later in a campaign.  And I find that these NPCs are great examples.  At the very least, it's a good starting place for building you're own NPCs, and ideas for PCs.  

There are a lot of nice ideas/NPC and I know I'd be upset if you stopped. :)

(Though you may need to add "Deep One" to the list of power levels on the first post.)

I concur. as for the use of creatures, I just used a Dragon in my annual Halloween Game, and it went great, the three characters had to call on some aid to take it down, which really added to future possible plots.

Thanks :)
