As an FYI, those who don't have a background and Description (Appearance and Personality) listed on their character should really get on it.

Added to my sheet.

I think that the only things that I'm missing are a pic and a mythweavers character sheet.

I sent Pockets the myth-weavers one I made, want me to also send you the link?

Put the background and description of your character here on the forums. I just wanted the crunch on the character sheet.

And Blinkin, I have a Mythweavers for you as well as the one you sent. And if you are selected, we'll worry about a picture then.

Oh, well, then that's taken care of. I'll add personality to the post about Catarina.

And he's finally ready for the approval process!  Hope he's useful.

ALDEN KORVIS
Oracle of Ancestors
ANDEL KORVIS
Age: 69 (looks in early 20s)   Height: 5' 10"
Alignment: Neutral Good
Languages: Common, Celestial, Necril, Varisian
Traits: Empyreal Focus, Irrepressible; Campaign Trait: Chance Saviour

PERSONALITY
Andel can be described as a very easy going person who has occasional pensive moments.  First and foremost, as a devotee of an empyreal lord, Andel is a peacemaker who will at least try to diffuse a situation before it devolves into fighting.  Humans have a tendency to look up to him and so he deals with the most, though he has absolutely no issue with other races, and always does his best to be friendly.  As a devotee of Arshea, he is possessed of a very sensual side that shines in all his actions, though he doesn't force matters to those who aren't interested or receptive (which would be contrary to his teachings).

In an community, Alden tries to make it a better place if he can.  If he thinks he can find a sympathetic ear (or ears) he'll happily expound the virtues and freedoms of Arshea's teachings, usually through florid story telling (a.k.a. Perform [oratory]).  Amongst friends, he does his best to look out for their well-being and offers his opinion when asked.  Forceful displays against another always offend him and it's one of the few instances he'll intervene without forethought.

EARLY HISTORY
Andel was the fourth son amongst seven other siblings, born to simple parents of a wandering nomads.  With an unremarkable early childhood, changes in Andel's life began at puberty begin with startling change in eye colour from dark to violet.  Although unusual, his vibrant personality and charming manner helped keep people at ease.  As he grew into teenager, he proved remarkably strong for his build and so began to find that he was pushed towards helping with the caravan's smith, which though he had little interest did so to keep his parents happy.

By the time he was eighteen, it was becoming apparent that something was different about Alden - even his brother, born a year later, was beginning to look older than he, who had somehow still remained as boy in his early teens.  Some more years went by and all around him, friends and family were leaving him behind, getting older.  People began to talk, leaving Andel to feel alone like he never had been in his life.  It was Andel's great uncle who eventually put together what the boy might - a more studious and devout man than most others in the clan, he realised that a trace of celestial blood must have resurfaced in the youth.

His uncle then went on to educate Andel in a bit of family history, detailing a lineage that dated all the way, over 800 years to the time when the Shinning Crusade took up arms against the Whispering Tyrant, Tar-Baphon.  Andel's side of the family had been descended from an angel fighting alongside the crusaders, though over time, the bloodline had thinned greatly and Andel was the first in a long while to show it.  Though still feeling alienated, Andel took some comfort in the knowledge, though life didn't become any easier because of it.  Everyone he knew was starting to show the infirmities of age; everyone except him.

When it all finally became unbearable, he took some of his belongings and left, making his way west, plying his talents at smithing and occasionally as hired muscle.  Time seemed to go by in a blur without Andel really paying attention to it as months became years, and years decades.  It had been a long journey, but at last he had seemed to reach adulthood, at which point he decided to go and find his family.  Of course by then, nearly forty years had gone by and the caravan he came to wasn't one he recognised anymore.  Whilst his younger brothers and sisters (now seemingly much older) offered him a place back amongst them, Andel was at his lowest, wondering just what he had done with his life and really could not bear to stay, though he tried for a while.

FINDING HIS PATH
Whilst wandering the woods near the caravan in contemplation, Alden was galvanised by cries for help.  Running as fast as he could, he came upon sight of an old man pinned beneath a fallen tree and about to be made a meal of by an opportunistic wolf.  Not taking the time to think matters through, he leapt in, sword in hand, and did all he could to drive the animal back, mumbling desperate prayers beneath his breath.  Somehow, against all odds, he managed to strike down the ravenous beast at which point he realised he had no idea where the sword had come from.  Tossing it away in shock, he was more bewildered to see it disintegrate a flash of blue fire a few moments later.  Before then, he had never held a sword in his life.

The old man's cries quickly reminded him why he was here and he managed to heave the heavy trunk from the man's bruised legs.  The wounds were bad and Andel mumbled prayers, wondering how to get this man back before more wolves came along, but even as he looked, the wounds were disappearing under his very touch.  The man turned out to be Professor Lorrimor and thanked him profusely for the timely rescue.  At camp that night, whilst the professor regaled his tales and exploits, Andel slept fitfully as he dreamed.

He immediately understood that he was seeing his angelic ancestor during the Shinning Crusade against the Whispering Tyrant.  Shockingly, despite the hordes of undead all around, the angel turned to speak to him as calmly as though they had all the time in the world.  Andel learned a lot that night, including how his ancestor angel was a lieutenant of Arshea, who had sent forces to see that humanity was not enslaved by the Whispering Tyrant.  He also learned that the later descendants of his family had chosen to abandon the watch on Tar-Baphon's prison in favour of a life of ease, betraying the pledge they had made.  When he awoke in the morning, Andel was a changed man, finally firm in resolution for the first time in his life.

After the professor left, Andel began to explore the newly awakened powers he had obtained, but by returning to the path of forefathers, the unquiet spirits of those who had betrayed their pledge also began to haunt him.  Nonplussed, Alden waited for a sign as to what he should do next, a sign that seemingly arrived nearly a year later in the form of a letter from Professor Lorrimor.

After giving it some thought, I will be closing this thread to any future interest at 10 PM EST. The reason for this is that there are a lot of interesting characters that I have to choose from and in all honesty it's going to be hard to choose just FOUR. So if you're hanging back toying with ideas, now would be the time to get them out there.

I was planning to do this tonight, but apparently I do only have an hour. Alas. International Table Top Game Day took up the majority of my day off. I will attempt to complete within the next hour, though it shant be as marvelous as it would otherwise have been (Had the next several hours slotted solely for this.)

Curt Ossel
Human Bloodrager (Blood Conduit)

Background: Curt has always been rather large. He was a large child, he grew into a very large adult. People occasionally joked that his mother must have bedded an ogre or any of a number of other creatures that would likely have created an even larger child. Curt is decidedly human, though there are always questions. The truth however may be even stranger, as somewhere in his ancestry is apparently the blood of dragons which took hold of him at a young age. Being possessed of a singular will and nature, he began fighting. Fighting other people, fighting monsters, fighting pretty much anything that he would get paid to fight. A big man, he was never afraid of a fight. Well that is, he was never afraid of a fight he expected. You know, the sort that happens in a bar when someone mouths off or when you're getting paid to do it. Those are the normal sorts of fights. One day walking town to town, as you had to do when you lost and didn't get paid, Curt was surprised to find a child sitting alone by the side of the road. Mean though he might be, he wasn't inhuman and so offered to escort the child to the next city. Wouldn't you know it, though, the child was in fact a creature merely disguising itself as a child. It tried to bite the hand that Curt had offered, stripping the flesh nearly to the bone. Rather than succumbing to the excruciating pain that was inflicted, the blood awoke in Curt and he clawed the little monster into gooey chunks left by the roadside. Whatever it had been, it didn't look like that any more once Curt was finished with it.

This is where the good professor comes in. The professor had finished giving a speech somewhere or other and by chance was lecturing another individual. That individual being the closest thing to a healer that the town had, Curt walked in with a claw and a gnarled bit of bone, sinew, and muscle. The professor was curious and once patched up Curt was more than happy to share the tale. Apparently it was called a "Cannibal Child", some sort of undead threat that wasn't remotely uncommon to the area. The professor studied the wound which was still rather gruesome though it didn't hurt, interested to know exactly what it looked like after such a minimal time healing. There was also the interaction of the draconic blood and the wound to consider, these were your once in a lifetime situations. Except what if they weren't? The professor wrote, and despite travelling often Curt wrote back or dropped in when in the vicinity, if the professor happened to either be home or publicly announced as being somewhere. It wasn't precisely a friendship, but the mutual stories and information were beneficial regardless.

These days Curt is still a fighter, one of the more feared fighters given his size and the fact that he has claws whereas most men simply have hands. He tries his best not to gut anyone, but mistakes happen. He tends to lose less these days. Though when word reaches him that the professor has passed, it seems the least he can do to go and say goodbye. It might also be important to make sure the good professor stays down, though perhaps that's just Curt's paranoia.

Well, even if I had a solid idea, five minutes ain't enough to write it all down. So, I guess i'll hold out hope for Giantslayer  :-)

Well after giving it some thought and talking with the better and some might say smarter half (Whose opinion I value a great deal). I'm willing to run two different groups with 5 peeps each. I can do two Carrion Crown or I can do one CC and another AP. I'm not going to run Giantslayer until at least the second module comes out, because depending on how fast people respond, the game might go on hiatus and die before the next part comes out. And that would just suck.

So with that, input is required.

I need to know if you just want to do Carrion Crown or if you want to do another AP.

If you do want to do another AP, speak up. The only two off limits are Wrath of the Righteous and Giantslayer. Wrath of the Righteous because there are already two different groups doing it and Giantslayer for the above mentioned.

Hoping to have a mythweavers sheet up by morning, but I PMed a text version of the character. A pic now sits in the original post for Justin along with the bio and history.

On a second group, the only AP that I really don't have an interest in is Kingmaker. I've tried it 3 or 4 times and it just never got off of the ground. I'm currently in Way Of The Wicked and Wrath of The Righteous, so anything other than those 3 are open for me.... I do want to play Carrion Crown because I've always wanted to play in a horror based game.

So... hope that helps. A second CC would be great, or another one would be just as good. I'll have to download the guide for some of them, b but I don't mind reading.

I'm really invested in the idea of playing Aelys in Carrion Crown.  But, if you decide you want to run something else and start another AP, I have many character sheets that I can just write up and tweak slightly, as-needed.

In order of most to least...

1) Rise of the Runelords
2) Kingmaker
3) Reign of Winter
4) Second Darkness
5) Mummy's Mask
Honorable mention: Skull & Shackles

I have a soft spot for campaigns that hearken back to "old school" adventure - outdoor adventure, dungeon crawls, heroic fantasy etc. And I also like the opportunity to look at something oddball like - i dunno a kobold gunslinger - and go "heeey, I could try that!"

But truthfully I'll be happy with anything you wanna run.

Chulanowa, get your character in.

Here is what I've got going. Since everyone signed up for horror and Carrion, so everyone's gonna get it. I'm going to just have to Run two games.

So with that being said, here are the breakdowns, subject to change based off Chulanowa's character.

Group 1
Angiejuusan - Tank - Catarina
eBadger - Arcane - Aesa
Purple Dusk - Divine - Alden
Chulanowa - (Hopefully a skillmonkey)
Bibliophilia - Tank - Aelys

Group 2
Ghostwheel - Arcane - Tyrandir
Darkling - Skillmonkey - Siri
Blinkin - Tank - Justin
Muse - Divine - Arindalise
Anon315 - Tank - Curt

I know that the 'roles' are a bit square and may not apply entirely to your character but how I rolled them in.

EDIT: Does anyone know the BBCode that allows me to write one letter and send it to multiple people but the 'Dear (Insert Name)' changes to the reader?
