No, Big Group is based on the number of posts, not players.

So, I make lists. It helps me figure out stuff in my head. So far this is what we have (do not begrudge your characters random blurb of explanation, I was stereotyping you and shoving you into a little box that I know your charrie doesn't really fit into.):

IrishWolf ... Chath ... Crossbowman ... Human ... Battle Calm Lush
Noxxi ... Linwe ... Hunter/Tracker ... Wild’Har ... Apathetic Animalistic Introvert
Hellis ... Iano ... Corsair ... Tindra ... Lighthearted Dr. Jekyll
Jecter ... Belisar ... Sergeant ... Guilt Ridden Ex-Leader
CarnivorousBunny ... Kor ... Assasin ... Human ... Troubled Savage Outsider***
Wargtass ... Corto ... Elemental Warrior ... Human ... Kind yet Intense Beserker
Modesty ... ??
Kythia ... ??
Sara Nilsson ... ??

***(and fuck you, I love your picture too! Plus your username makes me giggle about Monty Python every time I see it.)

Along with my list issue I have an issue with balance. I adore all of the characters so far, seriously. I think it is hillarious how many people went human, not bad, just funny. If none of the 3 other players produces a civilized healer I might switch my character. I love making characters so it doesn't bother me at all to do this. Does anyone agree? Healer needed? Someone who isn't savage and blood thirsty?

For the sake of your list:

Kythia...Alanna...Healer...Human....Quiet and Somber Cleric (though that last bit might change)

It makes sense that many silver leaves are humans. They are based in a Country that mainly consist of Humans.

I totally get the burnt out on an archetype feeling. But YAY on the Dwarf, please make them surly. Nothing like a surly dwarf to make things a party! (I somewhat jest, obviously make whatever you want.)

D'awww thanks. You understand my ways! I am glad that we will have a healer. It always adds a little bit of balance to a war. Good makings of an adventure party! :)

Username: Sara Nilsson

Name: Morgalla "the Mirthful" Ironfast. Only to very dear friends will she ever introduce herself as Morgalla Ironfast, to most she is just Morgalla the Mirthful, unless they pissed her off or she wishes to insult them. If so she introduces herself only as Morgalla of the dwarves.
Age: 87 (early 20s in human years)

Archtype: Assassin
Personality: Morgalla is a very cheerful young dwarven maiden, she still sees the world with the optimism and positive attitude of a young dwarf who hasn't seen enough bloodshed to start grumbling about how much better it used to be, and how much tougher the dwarven enemies used to be, or how watery the ale is these days. She can list the number of complaints that is usually told if someone asks, and has a few hours. Because lets face it, what old greybeard doesn't love to complain? She tries to keep it under control but she has a tendency to get very stubborn if things don't go as planned and can sometimes take almost suicidal risks in order to still accomplish what she set out to do in the first place.

Weapons: A set of sharp daggers she keeps strapped to her legs which are her primary weapons, and then across her chest she has a few throwing knives for backup.

Abilities: Expert at making and using poisons, very good at picking locks, and very sneaky.

Misc: Master crafted dwarven leather armor with metal greaves and wrist guards. The armor has metal plates and well hidden metal bands to help reinforce it making it far sturdier then normal human armor would ever be. Lots of lockpicks hidden in tiny compartments in her armor underneath the metal plates, a thick leather belt where she keeps several vials of poisons.



Race: Dwarf
Height:3'11'' (1.17m)
Weight: 108 pounds (49kg)
Appearance: She has long flowing red hair that she usually keeps braided into two long braids down her back, but when she is working she just tucks it all into the back of her armor to keep it out of the way even if that means she has to spend ages brushing it out. She has dark green eyes that peer out from underneath slightly bushy eyebrows and a wide flattened nose in typical dwarven fashion. Like all of her kind her body is stocky with well defined muscles, and like most dwarven maidens she is quite busty and she doesn't mind showing off her ample cleavage when it is appropriate.



Background: Her parents Thorgwar and Minty Ironfast (smith and heartguard respectively) where overjoyed when little Morgalla was born, they had tried for many years to have a baby and finally they had been blessed with a healthy little baby girl. Morgalla grew up in the hold of Thzak-Urdokr not lacking much in the way of parental love or friends. As she reached puberty however it was clear she lacked the temperament to either take up her fathers trade in the smith or to stand in the shield line with her mother, and yet within her the fire to protect the hold burned as brightly as in any dwarf. However the Guild of Shadows soon heard about her and before she knew it she had begun the secretive training to be an assassin in the defense of the dwarven nation. In what would normally be a cutthroat environment in a guild like this, no dwarf would ever dream of harming a fellow member of the Hold so they instead practiced a lot in working side by side to carry out their missions to take out the leaders of any enemy that dared threaten them. Her graduation mission was to take out the orc leader of a warparty that was harassing their supply lines and by the break of dawn the band woke up to find their leaders head on a pike in the middle of the camp with no clue as to who killed him. Morgalla decided after that to travel the human realms for a few years to hone her skills and this is when she heard of the Silver Leaves.

Apologies, I've reposted the sheet. I'll let your sum her up for your lists. :)

Username: Kythia

Name: Alanna of the Crimson Lady
Age: 23


Archtype: Healer
Peronality: Alanna is quiet and detached usually.  This isn't through a shy personality or similar, she simply believes in conserving her energy for when it is needed.  If the group is socialising she will socialise, if cooking she will help cook.  However, if there is nothing to do she will happily sit with her eyes closed and do nothing.


Weapons: Touch
Abilities: Alanna has total control over her body temperature - normally she's slightly warm to the touch but when required she can warm herself to unpleasant levels (the touch mentioned above as weapons).  Herbalism/Alchemy
Misc: Unarmoured.  Wears a number of necklaces and lockets containing various medicinal herbs - Dragonsbane protects against the plague, Keller's Ear for protection against colds and coughs, etc.  Healer's kit.


Race: Human
Appearance:

Background: Alanna was orphaned at an early age, too young to remember her parents, and grew up in a foundling's orphanage in Lussi.

The orphanage was entirely dependant on the charity of powerful merchants and was never wealthy, it was situated in the slums between a tanner's and a tavern.  When she was around five - she's not certain exactly how old she is - plague swept through the slums of the town.  In an attempt to save the rest of the orhpanage one of the children, Alanna, was pledged to the priesthood of the Crimson Lady.

Church myth claims that the Crimson Lady was the first human to die of a fever.  That's probably not true, but the story holds.  The Lady is one of the innumerable minor goddesses, in the service of Hesele though most assume Mortina for some reason.  A minor goddess of healing she is correctly the goddess of Fevers - burning away disease and infection.

Alanna was raised as a cleric and accompanied her mentor in his travels from village to town dispensing healing, the Lady's particular brand, to all in exchange for food and other basic necesseties.  Eventually her apprenticeship was served and she did the same on her own.

Priests of the Crimson Lady are actively recruited by the Silver Leaves.  Their quick and dirty healing is neither as effective nor as pleasant for the patuent as other methods, but it means they can travel lighter than most.  Further, their control over their own temeprature makes them comfortable serving anywhere from the frozen north to the middle of the desert.

My username was a happy accident and wasn't meant to reference that, but once I realized the connection myself, I also giggled.

Since there is an assassin more worthy of the title, and after Hellis' observation, I also changed Kor back in to a Ranger.
I think Kor and Linwe will get along really well...or hate each other, haha.  But I don't doubt they would work well together.  Can't wait to start! :)

Looks very much like a dwarf from DnD4. I have no preferences on which board to put the threads, so I'll leave it all up to you.

I'd say stick it in Light as the path of least offensiveness.  If people wanna get too freaky there's nothing preventing them making a one shot thread or whatever.
