I've lived here all of my life, and undeservedly, I grew up with nothing. Everything my father worked for, managed us only to survive. He always worked. Sunup until sundown. Working the land so the King and his fat servants could eat in grand style, while we barely scraped by. I barely knew the man. We received nothing for our diligence. Nothing! No appreciation from the pathetic King or any of those who serve him and his throne. No recognition. This is how they treat those who sweat blood for this land?! Who do they think they are?! And why is it that we who are not of so called 'noble' blood deserve nothing more than what might as well be a slap in the face, even though, WE are the ones who break our backs to keep this kingdom running?! WE are the true power, we deserve more than this! I deserve more than this. I deserve better.
I deserve the throne.
I would be far better as ruler of Talingarde. It is a pity that my attempted plan on usurping that pathetic King did not succeed. I would be the perfect replacement. Most perfect. Why couldn't they all see that? Why is it HIGH TREASON, when all I wish to do is make Talingarde a better place with me on the throne? Far better than the pathetic King Markadian. There should be a requirement of the King being at least competent for there to be some form of treason. And if those I had managed to gather would've done as they were told, then it would have never failed. Fools. I shall remember those that failed me, and they will most assuredly pay for such insolence.
I also cannot understand why killing those that hurl insults at you and question your integrity, is unacceptable. A challenge was issued and they were all properly executed. I did not kill any unarmed man. Each were allowed a weapon of choice. Regardless, it was deserved. Show proper respect and you can avoid suffering. It is imperative for all to know, that I do not take such challenges lightly. Do not challenge me if you expect to live a long life. I deem it unwise. Or, do not accept my challenge. It is far better for one to run with one's tail between one's legs.
I've been wrongfully imprisoned for my so-called crimes. I am to die in 3 days time. There is one in here with me that has spoken on Asmodeus. Hopefully there will be a moment to speak on such matters. Maybe there is something more to him than the pathetic King's gods. There must be. He allows worship of no other gods. Therefore, it is possilbe he fears him. We shall see. No matter; I will soon be free and they will all surely pay. One, such as I, should never be bound in chains. I am far to magnificent. Especially when I do not see, that of which what I have done wrong. Attempting to remove incompetence from the throne should have been paraded.
It matters little. It is obvious they do not see the greatness that is me. How much I could bring to the throne of Talingarde. That is the err of the pathetic King. When I am free of this false bondage, I vow that all will soon bear witness to true justice. And know this, pathetic King Markadian: When my death does not occur 3 days hence, I will not rest until I have been avenged. Talingarde will suffer because of your foolishness. All who stand by you and your foolish ways, will suffer. And I promise you this, pathetic King, you will suffer. For all of your crimes... against ME.
Buried deep in thought as he hangs from his shackles, his eyes closed, head down, and his hair dangling as far as it can fall... a wicked grin slowly forms.
1) Tell me who you are. Race/class at a minimum, but more is always better. How you came about the path of evil helps.
Morthos; Human Anti-paladin(Knight of the Sepulcher).
Bitterness and anger. Bitter at how there were so many others living "better" lives, and he always had nothing. Yet, feeling as though he should have it all. Angry at his lot in life. Spending so many years with such anger and bitterness--all directed towards the King because it is his fault--it's now just a natural part of who he is. Because of spending so much time in such a state, eventually he just "snapped" so to speak. To where his demeanor is quite calm and confident. He rarely(if ever) gets angry. Mainly due to his utmost confidence that in any given situation that arises, it will be taken care of in due time, one way or another.
2) What crime did you commit, and how did you get caught?
The main one, High treason. When his plan finally came into play, the majority of those that were to aide him, abandon him. Leaving him high and dry.
3) What do you look like?
6'4" about 220lbs and pale. Long black hair with eyes the color of night, making it difficult to tell if he has pupils. Fairly well built, yet misleadingly so, seeing how he is somewhat thin. His pic is pretty accurate.(The red face paint could possibly come later. Just because I think it looks cool, and seems pretty fitting.)
4) Why do you want revenge against Talingarde?
It pretty much says in the background. :)
5) Anything else you feel like saying.
Just thanks for giving this a go! Hopefully it's a good experience for you and whoever you decide upon and hopefully they click well.
This is the first time I've attempted to play an evil pc. Always wanted to play an Antipaladin since they came out with the class in the APG. Was disappointed about having to be chaotic evil, though. That's just too unstable for me. I've a hard enough time playing chaotic good. :P I'm more of a Lawful guy myself. So seeing how we could play Lawful, I jumped at the chance.
Good luck to you! I know I would hate to have to decide between so many. That would just be tough for me. I'd probably just turn and run. :p

HP: Max to start. At each level you roll 1/2 your classes HD, and add the other half. So a 1d6 will roll 1d3+3, a 1d10 will roll 1d5+5.
