I should also clarify; I'm not upset about it, I figured it was an "introduction" and not "this is how my character is going to be forever". So I apologize for the terse nature of my earlier post.
I've just seen (and been in) far too many PbP games that had issues due to the limitations of communicating exact emotion and innuendo through posts. I am perhaps overly sensitive to it, and my intent was not to restrict role-playing.
@Arumil - Even Gimli and Legolas didn't get on at the start :)
This could actually work well with my characterisation. Varnius prefers do'ers to talkers, and I guess waving a knife in somebodys face is an elegant way to transfer from one to the other.
That one show of force probably made him feel infinitely more respectful of you as a potential colleague than his previous opionion of you as a sheltered scholar.

Ah well Arumil just picked the most sensible choice (in his mind) concerning things. Truth be told the thought of casting a sleep spell on you did cross my mind, but then I thought it was a waste of magic and at this stage it's in short supply. Would have loved to wave my hand and knocked you out. Would have been so funny. xP
Anyways developing relationships is what a party is about. I never did like it when people who never met started out chummy, found that odd personally.
I have posted a link to the shared folder on the Campaign Info tab.
I created a small file containing some basic details about the bandit prisoners. Would everyone please take a moment and see if you can access the folder and see the file. I will be posting more information there as the campaign progresses so I want to make sure everyone can see it.
