Marko: "VICTORY! hey, waitaminute. what happened to the halfl--" BOOM.
That reminds me of a MAD tv show I saw years ago. This guy had a headache and got a new "special" pain reliever to help. He then said something like this:
It worked! I can't believe it! My pain, gone! My headache.......BOOM!
And then his head exploded.
It was hilarious! I couldn't stop laughing for 5 minutes. Oh the memories.
I have revised the background. I have spoilered a story about the mother separate from the background in the alias. Also, I have added and revised Hania's background.
I also updated the personality spoiler to reflect how she feels about the shadow beasts.
Let me know what you think of the changes.
Hania does not remember her mother very well. She never knew her Father. Shortly after her sixth birthday her mother was killed by the hellknights of Westcrown. Mother was being hunted for the little girl she had with her. Before she was killed she left her with a middle class couple with the promise that she would return for her. Mother never came back. A moment later they heard a scream reverberate through the streets.
The couple mused as to why a beautiful little girl would be hunted.
As they talked and watched Hania the form of the girl changed to that of a small fox-like person.
”Where did mommy go?” Hania asked.
Exchanging a knowing look with Father, Mother went to her side. ”Mommy isn’t coming back dear. You will stay with us now.”
The couple became her new parents. They showed her to keep her special ability a secret as they feared the hellknights would come and take her away if they learned what she could do.
Hania spent her time with Mother & Father when they went to the market and other places. She was always curious about everything around her and would sneak away while their attention was elsewhere.
When she was old enough, she began to listen to what people around her said about the Cheliax, Westcrown and it’s politics. She once heard a reference to something called the Council of Thieves. That sounded mysterious and fun! She had to know everything she could about them. She also wanted to know about her birth mother and what happened to her. Who knows what kind of life she might have had before things changed that night. She misses her very much.
For a while she worked as a barmaid in the shady parts of town. They had to know something of mother or the Council. She befriended an aging human named Fordwin. He had fallen on hard times so she helped him when he needed it. In return he showed her the thieves canter and a few techniques on how to blend in.
She began to sneak into areas where the nobles and politicians would frequent to learn more. When she was discovered she was politely removed at first but she quickly gained another way in: as a servant. She integrated herself into the serving staff and would always make sure she was around the table when they talked of anything important.
On one occasion she happened to overhear two of them talking about a Tian woman who, years ago, had a daughter that had disappeared when the hellknights discovered her daughter.
Simon.This girl had the ability to mimic others with uncanny detail. She was good, Jareth. Very good. If the mother hadn’t been discovered by the hellknights we would have had the best means to find out more about this Council of Thieves we keep hearing about.”
Jareth.”Oh come now Simon. You can’t possibly believe the rumors about that.”
Simon.”That’s not what you said about it last month. What changed?”
Jareth.”When my family was threatened 3 days ago. I was told to back off my searching for them. Somehow the city leaders got wind of my involvement. If you know what’s best you will stop too before someone you love is killed.’
Jareth gets up and leaves the room.
Simon.”Fool! Ah well. At this rate I will probably never find out.”
”Not necessarily.” said Hania.
Simon.”Excuse me? How dare you! I pay you to work not meddle. Get back to work before I have you flogged and removed.”
”I can get into places you only wish you could. Do you want to learn more about the Council?”
Simon.”That depends on what you have that I don’t. Your next words better be good.” he says suddenly cautious.
She shifts into an exact likeness of Simon.
Simon.You...you are the daughter I was just talking about. I thought you were gone or dead! How did you learn about us?”
”I overheard a reference to someone you were talking to about the Council last month. Not Jareth but someone else. Unfortunately the city got wind of it and he is dead. You should be more careful of who you talk to. I began following you and found out where you meet and it wasn’t hard to mimic any of the staff who weren’t working that day.”
”What do you say?”
Simon.”Alright. I’ll go along for now. You get me what you can and I will get you any leads on where to search. If you also happen across information on the shadow beasts, learn all you can and tell me about it. And please stop looking like me. It’s creepy.”
”Deal. I also want to know who found out my Mother. If you come across anything I would be interested.” she says as she changes back to the form she was before.
Simon.I’ll see what I come across”
Shan Fei’s story:
Mother was originally from Tian Xia. She had been kidnapped and sold as an exotic concubine to a Judge in Westcrown. Shan Fei had been in his service for about a year when she started quietly putting the word out that she had info regarding the Council of Thieves. She began meeting with a noble named Simon who had been digging for more about this elusive group when he learned of Shan Fei’s offer. She had just given birth to a daughter and had realized the unique qualities Hania possessed. Over the next six years they helped Hania to mimic others. Their goal was to figure out more about the Council and where these shadow beasts came from and why they were attacking.
Unfortunately, one of the staff had become suspicious of why Shan Fei guarded her daughter so much and began lurking about when she could. She learned that Hania could shift her appearance and immediately informed the judge.
Shan Fei ran and took Hania with her. The judge dispatched the guards to kill the mother and bring the daughter to him.
As Shan Fei made her way through the streets of Briar Patch she realized that she would need to hide Hania so she could make her way to Simon.
She had just delivered her little girl to a couple and made it several streets down when a hellknight discovered her.
A death scream echoes through the streets, then fades.
@Grand Moff Vixen: Thank you, one question that comes to mind after a first read of your story tough. If I'm not mistaken, a Kitsune is able to change to the form of one specific human of the same sex. The way you represented her in your story is that she can change to any human form, both male and female. Could you explain me how it would be possible or else, change your story on that point?
There is a racial feat available to the Kitsune. Realistic likeness. It is found here. I have also spoilered it for easy reference.
Kitsune Racial Feat:
When you are in human form, you can take the shape of a specific individual.
Benefit: You can precisely mimic the physical features of any individual you have encountered. When you use your racial change shape ability, you can attempt to take the form of an individual, granting you a +10 circumstance bonus on Disguise checks made to fool others with your impersonation.
Is it too late to apply?

I will now be closing recruitment as this has received more interest then I was expecting. Anyone who has expressed interest or still has characters in progress still has until Sunday to submit a character. But at this time, I will not be taking any new interest.
Hey Jelani. Mind if I roll up a gunslinger? I have been working on a concept for a few days now and have been wanting a game to base his background around.
I would be taking the Musket Master or Pistolero archetype if that is alright.
I would likely choose either half-orc or half-elf but have not fully decided on the race yet.
Your link takes me to a different page than the PDF you tried to link to for the E6 rules.

By chance, did you mean 10,500 and not 105,000? I am thinking that would be a lot of money.
I also echo this point. It has been a while. So, where is it?

Just so you guys know I'm going to be in training for a new job I start tomorrow so I don't know how often I'm going to be able to post...I'll still try to get on daily it just depends on my training schedule.
I know how it goes. I just started a new job last week myself. Although I am doing online training from home currently so I get an extra bonus with that. :-)
I now know my schedule and would be able to make it for the Thursday night game if you would like to meet up with me sometime online. What voice chat program do you use? I have ventrilo, teamspeak, and skype available.
Evenings are available to me as of now and I can play till about 11 if all goes well. I am in central time as well so timing shouldn't be an issue.
1. I would say about 5 to 6. If I don't know something I have the materials & other resources to look it up.
2. 10 if the game is engaging and fun. I am looking to join a group for the long term.
4. Rules light.
5. You bet I enjoy it. I also love to take part in it as well.
6. I would help her. (Case in point, I had a guy ask me for directions last Saturday when I had just arrived at the shop to have my oil changed.)
7. I do not have any issues with this.
