Well, the grunts (rank and file guys) get all associated clan perks/drawbacks. So need pick which clan your rank/file warrior belongs to :). I check sheet later.

  Son's of the west wind are welcoming grunts.  :) 

  But I imagine with your character so close to done, you might not want to adapt to a different culture.

Excellent, more orcs! Have you chosen a clan? Either way, there are humans just waiting for you to enslave them!

... or eat them, I dunno, you do what you like. :)

Alright, yes, full disclosure: There is a small chance that you might be defeated in battle and executed, tortured, mutilated, brainwashed, turned into a sex slave, turned into a non-sex slave, or sacrificed to evil gods (the wrong kind of evil gods, not like ours).

Small chance. Tiny. Wouldn't worry about it if I were you.

Hmm, I'm open to any of those.

I want to start small.  When I get the hang of uber-character making, I'll have something up then.  Thanks all, I'll consider which clan my character would be in.

Well, present clans are; Thousand Sons (based on Kunoichi's char and her clan has fertility perk), Sons of East Wind got more income/money, Goldclaws is my orc GMPC which is wealthy clan overall with drawback that they got only Gruumsh as deity and gives only war domain (and that their followers mostly are workers but for grunt this does not much matter as you do not have leadership yet), Darkblood clan is fiendish orc clan who can conjure fiendish creatures for aid and their negative drawback is that their reckless in use of magic (nat 1 in attack roll or CL check results wild magic effect).

How do we go about creating a character?

Well, here is link to DnD 3.5 SRD; http://www.d20srd.org/

It has most all things you need to know creating the char (check the classes especially). Now easiest way to generate a char (without someone doing sheet for you), use this; http://www.pathguy.com/cg35.htm

This is example sheet I just quickly made out (gave insane stats for just for fun); http://www.pathguy.com/cg35.htm

Just go down until you see red arrow. In stat section you can put the stats in far right side in the screen (as we use point buy and here is useful calculator for that; http://1d8.blogspot.fi/2011/02/d-35-point-buy-calculator.html).

If want bit hints how optimize your char you can always ask from us :).

I'm still here, but since I've been some combination of either exhausted from work or lacking in inspiration to post for the past several weeks, I'm thinking it would probably be better if I withdrew from the game.  At this point, all I'm really doing is holding up everyone else on the Orc side. ><;

@Zaer: Could you explain the VP thing ones more? Not the "VPs" but the scenes that will grant them... how are those scenes being played, and what does that " in X turns" mean. And how are those d6/2d6/3d6 done and what do they meen.

Thank you.

I can NPC you until your muse is feeling better to write; just mention sooner if you have down wind times with your muse so I can step in :P.

Thank you.

The scenes which grant VP are battlefield scenes (full explanation in heroes of battle); in short combat scenes in massive battles. We play those scenes like regular DnD combat and when I gave list of scenes it was list of objectives what you seek to pursue out and earn VP for your side to gain victory from the battle. Battlefields are massive and big and so you cannot be everywhere at once (you need deal threats here and there). With high mobile chars they do not suffer any rounds to 'arrive' to scenes (like your char and some others).

Anycase once battle is over in given scene, VP and it's rewards are given. However in rest battle the enemy acts and tries progress to win their battles to get VP for their side. It's measured 'when it happens' with the round completion rule which I applied. Once rounds are completed the enemy has won (in circumstance where godkings/queens use their forces I calculate rounds completion based on both forces make up and also roll % dice to see which side won on completion and % for player win is determined by quality of the troops in case of absence of PC, cohorts and such improve significantly chance to succeed naturally).

Well, the skills are sort spread too many layers, something like this is more preferred (you would need place in start of sheet [ tt ] and end [ /tt ] tags without spaces between letters and borders to make it look more neat);


Skill Name (Key Ability) Skill Modifier Ability Modifier Ranks Misc.Modifier
Appraise (Int) -1 = -1
Balance  (Dex*)  3.5 = +0 +2.5 -1 [musclebound] +2 [agile]
Bluff (Cha) -1 =  -1


Also bit description on background/personality would be good. You could google 'male orcs' and get lots options which to pick from :P.
