We could use an archer.  Archers are so badass in this system.   :-)

LOL...great minds think alike. I have an NPC archer in the pipeline if we don't get a PC one. If Vonandi opts for a Huntress she might tick that box. Although that raises the question of whether you'd trust said Huntress with a bow if you enslave her.

Oh, well. Skimming through the character stats the first time I thought we had two fighters and a sneaky "Face", but having looked again it turns out the latter was a sneaky healing "Face" so I'm just going to stick with playing a huntress, sans the salve nonsense. I'll try to get a sheet up later today.

Talents
  • Cosmopolitan (Homeland):
    Your homeland has many visitors and people dwelling
    within it, all with different customs and tongues. When
    speaking with a non-player character that also has the
    Cosmopolitan talent, it is assumed that you each possess
    enough of each other’s languages in common that you
    are considered fluent when speaking with one another.
  • Sheltered (Caste):
    You led a remarkably sheltered existence, buffered by family
    and servants against the rigors and dangers of the outside
    world. The prestige of your family means that you find many
    willing to pay for your room and board, so long as you are
    suitably grateful upon future visits. Whenever you enter a
    new town or city, you may seek out shelter from those willing
    to support you; these people pay your Upkeep. However, they
    are liable to ask for further compensation — either in Gold,
    or in the form of a favor — at some later juncture.
  • Subject (Caste):
    You are a subject in good standing to a lord or king. While
    subject to their laws, the taxes you face are much less than
    the more expensive taxes others experience. Whenever
    you pay Upkeep within your homeland, you can reduce
    the amount of Gold the Upkeep costs by one.
  • Accurate (Archetype):
    When making an attack with a ranged weapon, you may
    re-roll a number of damage dice equal to the number of
    Ranged Weapon talents (and ranks in those talents) you
    have acquired. You must accept the result of these re-rolls.
  • Sharp Senses (Nature):
    You may re-roll one d20 when making an Observation test,
    but you must accept the new result.
  • Force of Presence (Education):
    Your damage bonus on mental attacks is increased by +1 combat die.
  • Naturally Charming (Finishing Touches):
    You have a warm personality and a winning smile. People
    trust you. A successful Persuade test yields 1 point of bonus
    Momentum per rank of Naturally Charming.
  • Ancient Bloodline:
    With this talent, any time you fail to make a
    Personality test of any kind, the player must immediately
    pay the gamemaster 1 Doom point, and will gain
    an additional d20, adding its result to the test. The test
    is otherwise resolved in the normal fashion. If the player
    has already spent Doom points to gain 3d20 to modify
    the Personality roll, the player must pay the Doom point
    but does not get to roll the additional d20.

Description:
Tall, long-limbed, and well rounded, with a steely glint in her blue eyes
and long blonde hair flying free.

Personality:
'Jaunty' would be a good word. She's usually cheerful and upbeat, overly confident
in her abilities.

Backstory:
Zlata is the youngest daughter of a minor Brythunian noble. It was made clear to
her at an early age that she was merely a token in political intrigues, to be
married off when it would be advantageous. Her parents didn't even both hiring
expensive tutors for her. At least their lack of attention meant she had a lot
of freedom in her upbringing; she loved archery, and mastered the bow - at least
when shooting at targets.

Deciding she wanted a different life for herself - something more exciting than
what her parents had planned - Zlata ran away from home. Putting her skills to
good use, she helped some peasants to slay a bear, and began to feel confident
about her new role in the world.

Getting captured wasn't in her plans...

A Huntress (Ranger-esque) type could still fit wonderfully in my opinion.  Someone who specializes in Survival and Survival/Tracking Talents.

Scoundrels are also nice to have.  Basically Rogues who specialize in stealth and thievery.

Description: A short, lithe woman with dark black hair and blue eyes. She has refined features and a sharp brow which gives her face an imposing look.


Personality: Ionna is determined and self-driven, and more discreetly quite conniving and self-serving. Outwardly she presents herself as a confident, driving force, whereas they may be hidden meanings and plots behind her words.


Backstory: Ionna was born in Ophir, where she was raised more or less on the streets. Early on she had to learn to be streetwise, recieving little other education than the harsh criminal figures she ended up in league with. In her late teens, some of her associates tasked her with stealing a great artefact, some sort of old and legendary tome. She almost accomplished the task, having being captured in her escape. The guards offered her the option of selling out her former employers and leading the guards to them.

The conniving young lass tried to outwit the guards, however, aiming to doublecross them and bring the tome to her employers and allow them to ambush the guards. Unfortunately, the guards won the fight and Ionna ended up in chains and without the artefact.


Got a character together, hopefully in time. I hope I did it all right, not familair with this system at all.

Using Eva Green as my faceclaim.

Well, I was going to say a Thief, but looks like that’s no longer the case!

OK, so to summarise the current roster we have

Wulfhere - male Asgardian (Aesir) - warrior - played by Humble Scribe
Shaldara - female Zamorian - dancer / seductress / healer - played by helvorn
Belan - male Nemedian - warrior - played by LunarSage
Zlata - female Brythunian - archer - played by Achmed the Mad
Ionna - female Ophirian - thief - played by Hamadryad

Vonandi - TBC but possibly Huntress

I’d endorse LunarSage’s comment that someone with Survival / Tracking (and maybe Animal Handling) skills (such as a Huntress) would add a useful skill set. Another option is a scholarly type such as a Priest / Priestess, although that’s a more specialised skill set.

So far three out of five have the ancient bloodline talent, which is interesting.

The common language will be Kothic so you can all add that to your sheets as an ‘extra’ language. If you already chose Kothic you may add any language of your choice as a freebie.

@Achmed, just a quick note, I need you to remove the equipment from your character sheet as you’ll all be starting in rags (or naked). You can keep the ring if you like.

@All, all of the characters submitted thus far are approved. I’m going to leave this thread open a little longer and then we can move over to a proper OOC thread - as a reminder, the game will be in the Extreme section. I need to do some behind the scenes work over the next day or so but I’d anticipate starting the first IC thread no later than Saturday provided everyone is ready.

If you have any queries in the meantime just let me know, either here or in PM.

I was hoping to play some kind of beast tamer . I imagine them being soft spoken, speaking only when necessary. Yet being surprisingly scary when they need to be. But theyd have good instincts, and probably be able to provide useful survival skills to the party.

That would work just fine. There's a Beast Master Archetype as an option in character creation

Description:
TBD

Personality:
Serious yet mischevious, Aisha looks out for herself before anyone else.  She desires wealth and power, and has few morals in the pursuit of either.

Backstory:
Aisha was born and raised in Zamora, the daughter of merchants who had settled in the realm in search of freedom to ply their trade.  It was a foolish choice, and all of Aisha’s childhood memories are of struggle and stress.  The family ran caravans, and as an only child, Aisha was educated to follow in their footsteps. 

She was seventeen when her family found ruin.  The debts had piled up, the caravans had been raided.  Her father was executed, her mother enslaved. Aisha fled and fell in with a group of somewhat less reputable traders.  She dreamt of wealth, they offered a route.  She became involved in slaving, going so far as to help raze a village.

I love your character PAC.  A slaver would be a good addition to our collection of rogues and I love playing in games with you.

I’ve updated the thread to reflect the fact that going forward I’m only going to take pitches for male PC’s. If you’ve already posted intent to play a female PC here but haven’t finalised the details yet that’s fine, you can carry on as planned (so basically everyone up to and including tangerine.

I’ll open up a dedicated OOC thread when I get home from work tonight.

OK, I've opened a dedicated OOC thread in the Extreme Small Groups board, link as follows

There's also a thread for character sheets

https://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=307609.0

I know some people are still working through character generation, so anyone who has posted on this thread up to and including Love and Submission is welcome to pitch a character but I would ask that further discussion moves over to the dedicated OOC thread.
