Firbell Moleskin - Dwarf Cave Druid
As stout and solid a dwarf as you've ever seen, that may be where this dwarfs resemblance ends between him and his people. He smiles constantly, when the situation doesn't warrant it, sometimes especially when the situation doesn't warrant it. The most alarming thing about him is that his head is shaved bald, and his beard can't be more than a few months old. This gives him an 'off' appearance, a dwarf without a beard is most likely sick in the head. He has bushy eyebrows and plenty of wrinkles around his eyelids, as well as a classic and enormous nose, slightly squished to one side. He wears a breastplate, and carries a shield on his back and has a scimitar at his waist.

He was an outcast, and secluded, but he liked it that way. Alone in his beautiful caves, tending the small mindless grubs, and the beautiful mosses and small plants. He'd always felt most comfortable under the earth, but not in the fiery, loud halls of his brothers, but here in the stillness he felt the most at home. The animals rarely spoke back, but that was alright, he preferred the silence anyways. His eyes narrow as he remembers the last time he'd visited the dwarven stronghold, and it'd cost him his beard. Branded as a loon, and warned to never return, or he'd lose more than just his beard. A tear trickled down his cheeck and into his grinning mouth as the memory and remembered emotions washed over him again.

Shaking his bald head he continued on to check on the southern moss patch, when a great shaking rocked the cavern. It was an all-encompassing noise, and his legs couldn't support him. Falling hard to the stone, he found himself staring at the ceiling, knowing it was only a matter of time before it came down on top of him. Resigned to death, he tucked into a ball, wondering if his kinsfolk could survive an earthquake of this size. Then he heard, more felt, the solid stone crack beneath him, and all he could do was shout as the floor fell away beneath him entirely, and he tumbled down into the darkness.

RPG Superstar 2013 Top 8

New Pathfinder enthusiast here, I've been out of RPGs for about 20 years but now I am hooked again. So far my only chance to play is with my 2 young boys, so looking forward to trying an online game.

I was working on a character for Kingmaker, but I seem to have missed the deadline. However, that sort of leads into your story hook, so here goes:

Sharos Greywave was the son of an elvish sailor who collected swords from distant lands. He was always fascinated by the blades and practiced with them as much as he could. He also inherited some magical talent from his mother. After beginning his training as a Magus, Sharios began a journey to Brevoy to learn the craft of the Aldori sword lords. En route, the ground began to shake, a great fissure opened up and swallowed him. The next thing he knew, he was falling...

I should be able to post once or twice a day at least.


I would like to submit a rather fun character.

An Orc Alchemist who has had a few too many accidents in the "lab"

Klug'Tier:
Background: Klug, like most of the children in his clan, was hit in the head many times while growing up. "To make Klug strong and to make Klug fight hard!"

Unlike the rest of the children though this did something 'right' for him. He grew up fast like an orc should, but he also grew up smart. He was able to out smart the rest of the orcs and instead of fighting his way up the ranks he was carried on the backs of his peers. Thus he is not a big brute but a slightly over weight and crazy witch doctor who, when called upon to fight for the clan or for his rank, takes an academical drug and ruins all who oppose him.

The crazy comes not from the ease of his life or the rocks to the head from his youth, but from the many days and nights he has spent in his hut of a lab perfecting his potions and drugs to do anything and everything he wants them to do.

During the last few years the has been an up coming orc who has been seen as the next "Chief of the Tribe." This is because he is the size of a house and can lift five livestock with one hand. In the final testing stages of a solvent that turns anything it touches to gold, this behemoth of an orc picks up Kulg's hut and throws it relieving and area filled with all of Klug's things. Potions to flasks and lab equipment. The orc yells

"Klug not good for clan no more! Klug be crushed!"

and he smashes his large sized great club upon the ground and with it a scar rips through the clan's camp deeper then one can see.

As he is falling Klug puts his hands behind his head as if in a relaxed position and ponders his brief life. Wondering what is to come next, if he will live, where he will go and what more he could have done to prevent a stupid orc from doing this...

"Wait a minute! That orc did not possess the muscle mass to commit such a feat! What in the world could have created such a chasm?"


I will be ending recruitment tomorrow. Got some neat ideas, lots of orcish and drowish characters....can't say I'm surprised not a lot of DMs approve those races so good for you. I have the day off tomorrow so I will start mulling over builds then to get a head start on picking a team.


you can find his stat block and a little more about him on his profile.

As a non-monstrous race I am not feeling the love. :) Should'a gone monstrous, dang it!


Submitting a back story for Ukhozi, a half-elf (drow - though mechanically just a half-elf - drow is for flavor) sorcerer, fey bloodline.

Ukhozi Backstory:
Ukhozi was conceived during a drow raid on a human settlement. Despite this terrible incident his mother taught him to respect and look for the the good in others. She and her son moved to a large city early in his life, and he would often watch the local chapter of a paladin order practicing. He dreamed of one day joining their ranks.

When he was old enough he went to the chapter and asked to be able to join their ranks and train with them. Initially he was rejected, but perservering he was able to overcome (at least partially) their racial prejudices and was admitted to the order. After several months of training though he was kindly asked to depart. Despite his protests the head of the order was firm. Ukhozi believes it is because of his racial heritage that he was removed from the order. Though it might also have something to do with the time he used magic to tie Seargent Sammor's boots together while he was screeching out orders on the parade ground. Or maybe the time Lieutenant Darr found her personal quarters swarming with hornets. Or perhaps it was the time the Lord Captain Commanders wine was a bit higher proof than he was accustomed to and his assistant had to drag the giggling commander to his personal quarters, after getting him down off the table that is.

Ukhozi still dreams he might join their ranks one day, but it might have to wait till they can learn to laugh at themselves a bit. Nothing in the code forbids a bit of jovialty and fun, but you might never know that with they way they carry on their strict discipline.

Ukhozi still holds to the paladin ideals in many ways, fearing nothing, which may result in a premature end to his life.

I will build the stat blocks Monday morning if I'm selected for the group. Or did you want to validate builds Saturday as well? If so I should be able to make time to do so Saturday afternoon.

Darkvision is probably gonna be a plus (for the PCs) in your campaign, so...


This should get interesting.

"Poor Nuggle already feel intimidated."


The waiting is always the hardest part. But it should turn out great. ;)


Thraxin's Background:
Thraxin's family serve under a pact they made long ago with a powerful devil. Many forgot the exact reason behind the pact but they served it's purposes without question. There loyalty was tested when the devil had them serve the human's of Chelix, Thraxin's clan served as a underground slave traders for the humans. Filled with Duergar pride, young Thraxin feels serving these humans is beneath him. The devout servant of Asmodeus is the youngest in his family and doesn't have much say about the service to the humans, so with the blessings of Asmodeus the young dwarf decides to set off deeper into the darklands seeking either a more worthy set of masters for his people or find the strength to break the pact and rule over the humans.

Thraxin's personality:
Thraxin doesn't know much tact and will easily claim his superiority over the lesser races, and will lord it over them. Thraxin has great pride and loyalty to those that have proven there strength. He hates humans the most, but will hold himself to his Duegar honorcode (which isn't too restrictive).

Thraxin is a duergar Cleric of Asmodeus.

I can generally post 2-3 times per day.


Okay I have begun going though the apps. No more will be accepted.
Got a good few options. I plan to have my choices no later than Sunday as it will be very busy weekend.

In the meantime I would like to hear from those who still are anxious to join so I know the people I pick still want in. I will have the results up soon, hopefully no later than Sunday after noon.

So who still wants in?


Ukhozi is still in.


Mucho want-o in-o


Nuggle still be here.


I do


Thraxin is still here to join you lord Shanosuke. *bows*


I have been watching the whole time. So yeah still in. ;)

@Thraxin
Um you may want to look at my guy. Seems we had the same idea (with a bit of difference) and to sound like a 3rd grader, I was here first. Dont think it would help anyone if two guys were playing pretty much the same thing you know. :Z


I'd still like in, though I admit I'm thinking that lack of dark vision is going to be a pain and my sorcerer will be going thorough light spells like there is no tomorrow.

Oh my yes we did, didn't realize that I will change my story and class around hehe.


I am most eager to partake in your very exciting campaign!

I'm looking forward to your final choices to see if Harn makes the group!

Cheers! :D


@Ridge, yeah I'm totally thinking daylight spell for the druid if he gets in! course it'll be a few levels so who knows if he'll survive that long

@ Ridge - Remember, cantrips are 'at will' powers. And light lasts 10 minutes/level. Not too bad if you only have to cast it 6 times an hour at 1st level! :)


True. And really, it isn't like evil things in the dark will be drawn to light...

oh wait!

;)


Don't worry, I'll protect you down here. Honest drow!


Just a group of innocent under-dwellers walking along the pitch black, monster-infested, depths of the earth with a candle going. What's wrong with that!?


There is a darkvision spell. So deal with it til you have access to it or make it permanent. ;)

Edit-Whats deadly about the drow is their 120 ft. darkvision. Most darkvision creatures only have it to 60 ft.


Okay I am coming to some conclusions. But I have one issue. Some of you are evil and I am curious to know how you will take to group dynamics. Evil charafters are unpredictable and can mess with how games run.

So what I'd like to see is a small party dynamics post from each of you.

Answer the following questions:
1. Why work with others?
2. Underdark dwellers opinion of surface dwellers and vice versa?
3.Your Willingness to risk your life for a stranger.
4. Visual challenges darkvision characters opinion of light dependent and vise versa
5. Your goals in an unpredictable scenario?
6 Possible compatibility issues, what personas would you get along with most and which wouldn't you?

I will give you the weekend to answer these questions or until I recieve enough answers to make a choice, whichever happens first.


1. Why work with others?

The primary reason at first would be mutual survival. Xzevvra knows what she can and cannot do, and surviving on her own, while she could be capable, would be easier if she had a group to work with. Beyond that it would depend on party dynamics.

2. Underdark dwellers opinion of surface dwellers and vice versa?

Enemies. That doesn't mean she won't believe she can use them.

3.Your Willingness to risk your life for a stranger.

She's not willing to. On the other hand if one of her group members does die, that reduces her own chance of survival. So will she come to someone's aid? Quite probable.

4. Visual challenges darkvision characters opinion of light dependent
and vise versa

Xzevvra prefers the dark. She's also intelligent enough to realize if her allies (even ones of necessity) can't see, that's a problem. She'll probably hang around the shadows though in such a case.

5. Your goals in an unpredictable scenario?

If possible, watch from the shadows, wait for an opportunity to take advantage of, then take it.

6 Possible compatibility issues, what personas would you get along with most and which wouldn't you?

Xzevvra's a survivalist. She will make an effort to get along with anyone as long as it suits her own survival. She does have a personality defect for a drow in that she is a tad too trusting of others (she's only mostly paranoid), the reason why her sisters decided to kill her. Paladin's and Elves would probably be the most difficult to work with. She doesn't take that much enjoyment out of rampant killing, for example, but is more than willing to do so if it's the easiest solution to a problem.

I don't plan on playing her as a chaotic evil sadistic murderer who delights in killing puppies. She is evil (probably not redeemable), but she'll adapt to a situation she's been thrust in to ensure her own survival.


Damn I missed this game ... seems you've got a lot of good 'uns in there hope you all have fun and it works out for you Shanosuke. I know whoever gets in will have a good game, Shanosuke is a good GM in my book, with interesting scenarios.


1. Why work with others?:

"Huh, I've heard stories about you drow--they're not favorable. So let me be clear: This is about survival. Contrary to common thought, the 'every being for himself' dung is just that--dung," Harn said forcefully.

Eying the strangers around him, the half-orc continued, "Survival requires teamwork, especially in the Darklands. I may be from the surface--in fact from the mountains--but I've got enough experience with the Darklands to know that there's always something bigger and badder around the next corner."

2. Underdark dwellers opinion of surface dwellers and vice versa?:

Harn chuckled in a most friendly manner, despite his bestial appearance. "You see, I don't care what you're normally like, or where you're from--we've got to work together. If you don't like surface dwellers, or orcs, or half-breeds, keep that to yourself. We don't have to be friends--though that would be fine by me--but we do have to be allies!"

3.Your Willingness to risk your life for a stranger.:

"I intend on making it out of here and back home, and I'm far more likely to achieve that if I keep you lot alive. So just you remember that. If you have a choice between dashing to safety or stopping to help one of us--you better be stopping to help. You see, the next time around, it could be you that needs saving. If you don't help someone else out, they probably won't be there to help you. Got it?"

4. Visual challenges darkvision characters opinion of light dependent and vise versa:

"As for those of us not blessed with the ability to see in the dark, this'll be challenging. There'll be times when you'll have to douse your light, or draw attention to us all. Just know that I'll back you when you do need light--I prefer to see in color!" Harn said with a smile.

5. Your goals in an unpredictable scenario?:

"I want every one of you to know I spent the last three years serving as a bodyguard for a good friend. That kinda behavior doesn't just evaporate overnight. Say things get really weird. I'm still gonna stick with you all, and do my utmost to keep you alive."

6. Possible compatibility issues, what personas would you get along with most and which wouldn't you?:

"As I said, I'm your half-orc, regardless. However, if you help out, don't whine, and in general see the benefit of the group as being beneficial to your well-being, then we should get along!"

Harn paused, giving them all a good looking over and taking in their individual scents. "I don't think any of us are saints, but if you steal from the group, are lazy, or downright attack one of us, then we won't get along."

Almost as an afterthought, he adde, "Oh, and I'm not a big fan of bullies. So, keep that in mind!"

The bestial half-orc let out a barking laugh. "Well, enough of that! Let's start working on getting out of here! I expect it'll be fun!"

1-Why not, their is no reason not to work with others. Only the powerful or the foolish think they can survive the underdark alone. Zhimon is currently netheir, making enemies out of would be allies is a deathwish in everyway.

2-Surfacers know nothing of the underdark and are rarely prepared for its deadly depths. They dont last long without aid. Useful.

3-A drow priest will not risk his life for anything other then his faith. Asmodeus does not look well upon fools who throw away their lives for the weakness called compassion or any kind of failure for that matter. But being a priest he knows his pawns are not to be thrown away, if they break he fixes them unless their not worth the trouble.

4-Those races that are forced to use light in the underdark should do so carefully. But if their is no way around it then it must be done, anything that would seek light in the underdark would have found them anyways.

5-Survival, the death of my enemies, and gain. In that order, the continued survival of any allies increases my own chances of survival as well as assist in the downfall of said enemies.

6-That is dependent on the person. As long as no one is againt Asmodeus or attempting to challange Zhimon's station he does not have a real issue with them. Chaotic types may be a slight problem but otherwise nothing will be a big problem.

Btw Zhimon is LN for a reason. XD


Albereth is not evil, he is CN, which makes him also hard to predict, so here are his answers.

Shanosuke wrote:


1. Why work with others?

The underdark is a dangerous place, safety can be found in numbers.

Shanosuke wrote:


2. Underdark dwellers opinion of surface dwellers and vice versa?

Most surface dwellers are wouldn't last a week in the underdark, but if you meet one that does, be careful, he can probably kick your butt.

Shanosuke wrote:


3.Your Willingness to risk your life for a stranger.

Depends:

Is it a Drow not directly opposed to my family? then probably yes.
Is there some kind of reward involved, or potential future benefit, then probably yes.
Is it one of the non-favored races? probably not, unless order to.

Shanosuke wrote:


4. Visual challenges darkvision characters opinion of light dependent and vise versa

If you need a light to move around, you're in deep trouble, I'll stay at safe distance, thank you.

Shanosuke wrote:


5. Your goals in an unpredictable scenario?

Like an eathquake that drops you in the middle of nowhere?, survival is paramount, food, shelter, then trying to orient yourself, where are you, how do you get back.

Shanosuke wrote:

Albereth would get along better with those of strong personality, the ones that know what they are doing (or pretend to know), and those with some kind of military/brotherhood background.

He disliked preachers, but knows whom to share his thoughts about this. He also dislikes weaklings. Those that complain constantly, and doesn't trust anybody that avoids eye contact.


Olliver Myles

1. Why work with others?
"I would really, really like to get out of this alive. I finally have magic! And that's wonderful, but I'm new to it, and it to me... and let's face it, there's a reason merchants go in groups through dangerous lands and try to get protection- They aren't idiots. I'll need help to get back to the surface and cooperation looks to be the only way."

2. Underdark dwellers opinion of surface dwellers and vice versa?
"Frankly, the only thing I know about them is the stories I've heard from bards of dubious quality... going by that, they scare the hell out of me. However.. I don't see as I have much choice at this stage. Best thing I can do is trust but verify. I have to sleep sometime, and if they wanted me dead, all they'd have to do is wait."

3.Your Willingness to risk your life for a stranger.
"I never really thought much about good or evil per se. I mean, I admire do gooders, but I don't know if I have that potential myself. For a friend? I'd do it.. I would like to think I would. Of course, I was raised a merchant and one thing I learned... 'everyone' is a 'friend' until it is time to pay the bill. The real friends stay by you even then."

4. Visual challenges darkvision characters opinion of light dependent and vise versa
"I feel like a target, but what option do I have but to use my new magic so I can see?"

5. Your goals in an unpredictable scenario?
"Survival... not just for me, but for those that are helping me. I see no problem with us running if that's our best chance for same, but I'm not going to desert allies just as I hope they don't desert ME."

6 Possible compatibility issues, what personas would you get along with most and which wouldn't you?
"I think some activities would just go beyond the pale for me. I want to live and get home, but I don't want to become a monster to do it. Anyone torturing, murdering casually, and otherwise is going to get my guard up and I don't think I'll be trusting them soon if ever. I would prefer someone who treats me with respect, and vice versa. You don't treat your friends or allies like some charlatan's marks."


1. Why work with others?
Fear mainly. Nuggle has heard all sorts of horror stories of the non-goblin races.

2. Underdark dwellers opinion of surface dwellers and vice versa?
Nuggle has never met surface dwellers so no opinions.

3.Your Willingness to risk your life for a stranger.
For a goblin, not willing at all. For other races, until they disrespect him, maybe for survival purposes or if they are friends. Nuggle doesn't have many.

4. Visual challenges darkvision characters opinion of light dependent and vise versa
Light is death.

5. Your goals in an unpredictable scenario?
Just get away from his home village as fast as possible.

6 Possible compatibility issues, what personas would you get along with most and which wouldn't you?
Those that bully others he may have an issue with. If he is shown some measure of respect, he will treat them as a friend, furiously defending them to the best of his ability.


1. "Why!? Why not? I can't do everything by myself! Somebodyhas to do some of the dirty work around here! Haha!"

2. "Look. I live in a cave called a Lab. It's a hole in the ground! What does that make me!?

3. "If by life you mean my life's work, then I'd risk it all! I Love to share my life!... With everyone!"

4. "The light is a blessing and a curse. I hate it, but I need it!!!"

5. "Throw everything! The murder, the life and the washtube!

6. I.. have authority problems. So don't tell me what to do!!! I have the knowledge of elements at my disposal!!! So all you have to do is say please.


1. Why work with others?
"As most will tell you the dark lands are a dangerous place, it's better to move around in groups. But that is not the only reason why I work with others, my whole life I have been trained to protect our merchandise, that training sticks with you and even if you don't own the ones traveling with you and mine teaches to watch over them. Speaking of training it is good to travel with others different from yourself to keep yourself on your toes."

2. Underdark dwellers opinion of surface dwellers and vice versa?
"As long as there not Chelixian.......I hate those vile huummaansss." He gives a gruff, "Everybody tricks and everybody betrays, they are all weak and strong in some way. As they say a dagger in your back is still a dagger in your back no matter who put it in there."

3. Your Willingness to risk your life for a stranger.
"Depends on the prospect I would gain from there survival. Like if I believed they would make good money on the auction house or they might lead me to something greater then I would risk myself for profit or power."

4. Visual challenges darkvision characters opinion of light dependent and vise versa.
"Light, Bah! Many Surface dwellers don't believe we use light but darkvision only can show you so much and with a flame you can see greater details. Also the light dependents come with a few advantages, they provide themselves as a target and help us ambush those who focused on the lightneeders, bwahha! The other advantage of being with one without darkvision is they have various light sources to blind those who don't use them and help us get used to the light."

5. Your goals in an unpredictable scenario?
"Since I never got the blessings of Asmodeus like my brothers, and being the only duergar that doesn't understand why we are working for pitiful and weak humans. The pact my clan made with the bearded devil has loop holes, that is why I travel further into the dark lands to seek power or masters more worthy of my clan's services."

6. Possible compatibility issues, what personas would you get along with most and which wouldn't you?
"If they pull there weight in the party then we should be fine. And if they prove themselves to not be worthy or useful to me, then I can always take them to the slave pens." He thinks for a moment then his face flashes red with anger, "UNLESS THERE FROM CHELIX! THEN I WILL GIVE THEM NO QUARTERS! HAVE I TOLD YOU HOW MUCH I HATE THOSE DEFILERS!"

I changed my class to Cavalier(Standard Bearer, Tactian)-1, followin the order of the dragon. The reason behind this is he was trained to protect the slaves when they traveled and all his insticts are to make sure no one kills or mortalily damages there property so it sticks with him even with groups that he doesn't own. Though the story basics are the same the class is a little differnt. Hope you enjoy my responses.

Grand Lodge

1. Why work with others?
My survival is the most important matter to me.

2. Underdark dwellers opinion of surface dwellers and vice versa?
My only real issue concerning Underdark dwellers are Drow.

3.Your Willingness to risk your life for a stranger.
For each person that dies my survival chance reduces. In my best interest to help others survive.

4. Visual challenges darkvision characters opinion of light dependent and vise versa
Can only look at each situation as they come up.

5. Your goals in an unpredictable scenario?
Survival and wealth

6 Possible compatibility issues, what personas would you get along with most and which wouldn't you?
The only race I would have real problem with are the Drow. Does not mean that I would kill one for that reason only.


Interesting. This has definitely made my choosing process a lot harder lol. There was a certain group I had in mind but I've changed that.

I have live game night tonight so I won't be on for the rest of the day. Sunday's are just gonna be that way. With work being scheduled for me bright and early in the morning, I won't be able to post my final choice + discussion until tomorrow evening. I apologize if this is an inconvenience to any of you.

Just a note. This does mean that those of you who have not answered the questions in the above statement have until Monday afternoon to do so. If you don't then I will rule you out as an option.


1. Why work with others?
They're part of nature, and therefor of worth. They deserve life and a chance to fulfill the measure of their creation as much as the moss by their foot! (this is not said sarcastically). As a druid he understands nature involves life and death; good and evil don't really bother him unless it involves wanton disregard for nature or its creatures, from a good or evil perspective.

2. Underdark dwellers opinion of surface dwellers and vice versa?
As technically a surface dweller, he considers himself more of a dweller of the Underdark. However he's never truly had to live for a long periods of time in the true Underdark. But it's also been months before he'd been in the dwarven halls, and years since he'd actually seen the open sky. He has been perfectly content. In regards to the question he feels a little pity for surface dwellers, not being able to see the beauty under the earth which darkvision allows him to see. On the other hand he feels some admiration and respect for the Underdark dwellers, knowing how tough and cunning one must actually be to survive and even thrive in the unpredictable and deadly bowels of the earth.

3.Your Willingness to risk your life for a stranger.
Extremely willing, as long as that stranger wasn't hell bent on ruining nature of course. It's most accurate to say that his willingness to risk his life is in direct proportion to their apparent love for, or hatred of, nature. Strangers are all assumed to love nature till they prove otherwise. Who doesn't love nature!?

4. Visual challenges darkvision characters opinion of light dependent and vise versa
Again, he laments their lack of darkvision, as they cannot truly appreciate the beauty of nature under the earth, but he understands their disability and will certainly be willing to help supply light to assist with their survival.

5. Your goals in an unpredictable scenario?
Peaceful resolution, one that preserves as much life as possible.

6 Possible compatibility issues, what personas would you get along with most and which wouldn't you?
He has a difficult time with mass murderers or those who do massive or irreparable harm to nature (which is basically the same thing to him), and undead he's not a fan of, being in violation of natures laws by their very existence. He gets along best with those that respect life and nature, and it helps if they have a positive attitude, he's drawn to that.


Unfortunately, something has come up and I won't be able to post regularly. I'm afraid I'll have to withdraw from the recruitment. Congrats to all who get picked.

Okay I am coming to some conclusions. But I have one issue. Some of you are evil and I am curious to know how you will take to group dynamics. Evil charafters are unpredictable and can mess with how games run.

So what I'd like to see is a small party dynamics post from each of you.

Answer the following questions:
1. Why work with others?

I'm always happy to cooperate with others unless they give me reason not to. It's obvious we need to work together to survive.

2. Underdark dwellers opinion of surface dwellers and vice versa?

I've had no previous contact with underdark dwellers so I would be wary.

3.Your Willingness to risk your life for a stranger.

If it's a problem I can face with my blade and my magic, I'll jump right in and think later.

4. Visual challenges darkvision characters opinion of light dependent and vise versa

Good thing I have a Light spell. If someone can see in the dark more power to them.

5. Your goals in an unpredictable scenario?

Survival, improve my skills with the blade and with magic.

6 Possible compatibility issues, what personas would you get along with most and which wouldn't you?

I wouldn't appreciate it if a party member is plotting against us or stealing from us. Otherwise I can work with anybody.

I will give you the weekend to answer these questions or until I recieve enough answers to make a choice, whichever happens first.

EDIT: This is Wolfwaker from earlier if it is not clear.


After much consideration as well as a bit of waiting time for everyone to get their concepts in. I have finally got my team of survivors. A scary group with one odd man in it for my personal entertainment.

The group is as follows:

-Harn the Half-orc Fighter
-Xzevrra the Drow Ninja
-Zhimmon the Drow Cleric
-Klug'Tier the Orc alchemist (very amusing concept)
-Olliver Myes the Elf Sorcerer (odd man out hehe)

I won't be able to touch my Computer until late tomorrow afternoon/evening. I will get the discussion up now but I wont have my DM rules up yet as I need material it has on it but the five mentioned above are In. Head to discussion and pipe in.

The rest of you, thanks for your apps. I may call on you if someone drops. Good evening.


WOOT!

Thanks, Shanosuke!

Note: To those that didn't get chosen, don't get discouraged. There are always new games starting in the Recruitment thread!

EDIT: @ Shanosuke - Oh, Olliver Myes is a Human Sorcerer (not an Elf).
