Snake, you only get the 4 extra skill points after you calculate how many you get for you class.

2+2x4 = 16. Add 4 to that, you get 20 total.

Very much still a work in progress. Need to decide on an Animal Companion, currently looking at a Riding Dog. If something seems missing, it probably is,

but let me know all the same. I could have forgotten something.  :-)

Halfling Druid

Class (#): Druid (1)
Race: Halfling
Size: Small
Age: 22
Sex: Female
Alignment: Neutral Good
Religion:The Twins of Nature
Appearance: WilimŽ is a slender, lithe creature. Her wispy, light brown hair is usually wild and unkempt, often tangled with twigs and leaves. She has bright chestnut eyes and a ruddy pink complexion. She loves to adorn her naked skin with designs and motifs drawn with temporary pigments, using her body in her druidic rituals.

Though she prefers to eschew clothing,  when she must dress WilimŽ loves to wear airy, gossamer fabrics. She hates armor, though when she must she dons a leather cuirass and skirt, arm and leg greaves. When armored, she wears leather boots, but otherwise forgoes footwear.

Grimshade is a husky. His fur is dark gray, lightening to almost white on his chest and stomach.  His eyes are a ghostly, pale blue.

     History
WilimŽ grew up in a halfling village on the edge of an ancient woodland. From an early age, she liked to sneak away into the forest and run naked among the trees, communing with nature and learning the ways of the wild. Her aptitude for the natural world did not go unnoticed. Watched by a druidic circle, she was inducted into their ranks and trained the druidic arts. WilimŽ was an exceptional student, and after years of arduous training, she was sent to a grove with three of her sisters.

It was not long after when the monsters came. Burning everything in their path, a horde of goblins and orcs burned the grove around her, and slaughtered all who stood in their path. Naked and defenseless, WilimŽ sprang to action, doing everything she and her sisters could to rouse the creatures of the woodland from their slumber so that they could escape the reavers. WilimŽ watched in horror as her sisters were butchered in front of her. Fighting tears, she mustered what magic she knew and attempted to face the invaders. Outnumbered, WilimŽ stood her ground and prepared for the end, when a dark shape suddenly a dark shape sprung from  the darkness and surprised her foes, knocking one to the ground. A large dog, with fur the color of smoke and ash, stood upon the chest of her enemy and ripped out his throat. Its muzzle bloody, the dog leaped off the dead goblinoid and nudged WilimŽ. The halfling understood and mounted the dog. Howling, the canine sped through the flaming forest and bore WilimŽ to safety at the edge of the wild.

Overcome with grief,  WilimŽ buried her face in the dog's fur and wept for hours. Though her home was gone and her sisters slain, she realized this dog was somehow meant to find her and save her. WilimŽ knew this was to be her companion and she spent the rest of the night ritualistically bonding herself to the beast. She named him Grimshade, and the two have been inseparable since.

WilimŽ and Grimshade traveled for several days before meeting others of her order. They fed and clothed her, and gave her shelter for a few days. Though they had heard of monstrous activity in the frontier lands, they had no answers as to reasons why. It was from them that WilimŽ learned of the Competition of the Sword in nearby Zhyer. Thinking she would find answers there, she gathered some supplies along with weapons and armor. Thanking her hosts, WilimŽ and Grimshade prepared to journey across the desert to the city of Zhyer.

Looks good Latooni.



Looks good EvilBeast, though does need a background.  Also, I would like you to bump up her age a bit, I think Halflings mature more slowly than humans?  Book has humans reaching adulthood at 15, halflings at 20, so she should probably be 21 or 22.  You may also be missing her bonus spell from high wisdom?

Age has been adjusted, and bonus spell added. Character sheet should be nearly complete, just need to purchase some equipment and calculate weight of carried gear.

Her animal companion is a riding dog. Is it ok to assume this beast is wartrained or is that something I'm going to have to work at? Also, background is in progress, 1st draft is written and I will have it completed tomorrow along with appearance. Too tired tonight to do any more.

     History

Alleyne's family was part of a traveling circus that got attacked by a group of orc raiders.  Most of the organization including her parents were killed, but Alleyne managed to escape. 

Fending for herself in the woods, she was rescued by a human monk who brought her to his monastery.  There, Alleyne spent most of her youth learning how to fight, using her agility to avoid damage while inflicting some of her own while unarmed. 

After seeing generations of human monks who cared for her grow old and die, Alleyne has decided that it is time for her to go out to the classroom that is the world to improve her skills and perhaps someday open a monastery for elves.

Currently, Alleyne is has temporarily settled down at a place where she can get some work doing some exotic dancing.

Thanks EvilBeast.  I imagine wartrained is fine, where is the rule for it?

I cannot find an actual rule for wartrained. I am guessing that using Handle Animal, you can train a beast for war (train for purposes combat riding and fighting) but it doesn't specifically say "wartrained".

http://www.d20srd.org/srd/skills/handleAnimal.htm

http://www.d20srd.org/srd/monsters/dogRiding.htm

It is implied that Riding dogs already are trained for combat riding (so that takes care of that training purpose), and their description notes that if trained for war, they can make trip attacks like a wolf.

Now, there is no rule stating whether or not a riding dog can start off as wartrained, and there is no separate entry in the equipment tables for purchasing a wartrained riding dog.

If you allow me to start off with a wartrained dog, that would be great. Otherwise I'll have to plan on training him for fighting. Not a big deal, but I do need to know what your thoughts are so I can plan ahead.

With that said, the character should be complete! (just need some minor edits regarding the riding dog)

  It was my understanding that a "Riding Dog" was, by default, trained to be a war mount. 

Edit:  I was referring to this:   


Combat Riding (DC 20): An animal trained to bear a rider into combat knows the tricks attack, come, defend, down, guard, and heel. Training an animal for combat riding takes six weeks. You may also ďupgradeĒ an animal trained for riding to one trained for combat riding by spending three weeks and making a successful DC 20 Handle Animal check. The new general purpose and tricks completely replace the animalís previous purpose and any tricks it once knew. Warhorses and riding dogs are already trained to bear riders into combat, and they donít require any additional training for this purpose.

You're right on that Muse, but what makes it unclear is that is states "If trained for war...".  That word 'If' makes the whole thing confusing, as some dogs are trained and some are not, which is why I need the DM ruling.

Interestingly enough, Pathfinder fixes the problem by remving that line from the description and stating that they can fight.
