Our player-abandoned PC turned NPC, Kitoth the magic user was blinded last night by a spitting cobra. I’m really looking forward to seeing how this is handled. As a player in our short game at CaveCon1 (anyone interested in a CaveCon2 in mid-June, let me know), we had a blind hireling we tied by rope to another hireling. It became pretty funny actually… in this case, I suspect I’ll (as DM) be playing the character to a degree, unless we can find another player to pick him up. I hope the party doesn’t ditch him as useless; I’m looking forward to future role playing possibilities and planning on the highly intelligent Kitoth occasionally making better use of his other senses and still contributing to the party’s adventuring and well-being.
