Is there still room to join?
Yep - still looking for players.  I'll pick the six players/characters that I think will fit best (at least 6).

I have a base idea. A half-elf shadow sorcerer with a criminal or charlatan background.

That's a very good question!

Well that's a lot of help.  :P

Joking aside, thanks for putting this together at all Siereis.  :D

It's the hell I endure  ;D

I'm kinda leaning male with the current cast; race is trickier. The big thing is I'm looking for the "young adventurer from a podunk town in the woods" vibe, and not "Max level JRPG badass"

Can't go wrong with tiefling, just saying.  ;D

Even if it's something as simple as a family of wine makers that might've had someone in their line way back make a deal with a demon, thus explaining the tainted blood in your guy, it'd be easy to explain why there's a friendly neighborhood tiefling around.  :P

But seriously, hmm, every race has its advantages as most of us know, but from a roleplay standpoint it's so much more awesome, or at least it can be.  Really what would you find the most enjoyable to play?  If you're going with a spell caster type, maybe something dragonblooded?  I've seen too many dragonborn characters, but with the recent reveal of Calianna was it?, I'd love it if something like her popped up.  Shit, I should've thought of that sooner....

Changed mind.

Firbolg Druid. Or maaaaybe Fey Pact Warlock / weirdo sorcerer. All that nature-y, magic-y stuff going on, y'know?

basic outline: His tribe lives in the deep forest, but maintains peaceful if not exactly cordial relations with Kassen; in order to maybe bring the two communities closer together, this character (have yet to get name / image down) has been offered up to participate in the town's celebration and ritual.

...could also go goblin barmaid, in a pinch, I guess.

After thinking on it, my current concept is a tiefling bard who had traveled from town to town since she was young, until finally settling down in Kassen - the first place that really accepted her. She's used to being shunned due to her heritage, so she developed a habit of showing off and trying to draw attention to herself; she likes to play the hero, even if she's not much of one yet, and has a small but growing urge to head back into the world and seek out adventure.

If that would be all right, I'll just need to find a picture and write up a proper bio for her... otherwise, I can adjust her to fit.

I might change my concept and stuff to something more dragonblooded related if you're doing a bard since my first idea was to do a Fallen Aasimar bard just trying to figure out who and what she was.  :D  I'll give it some thought and see if I can't find a picture today to maybe draw inspiration from, but I might go Sorcerer or something, don't know yet, and again it depends if you plan to stick with Bard there Cerulean.  If you do it's cool, was batting around ideas for something different regardless.

Bard is my top choice at the moment, but I don't mind if you play one too. It seems like one of the most flexible classes, so even if we're both accepted, we could end up with very different characters.

If our GM wants me to play someone who was born and raised in the village, though, I might switch classes... I could go with my old rogue idea, or there are a couple of more martial ideas I could pull up.

Myself and Cerulean want to play a bard, but I'm willing to jump to a tiefling sorceress with a draconic bloodline if she wants to play a bard.  I DO like my bard gal I drew up, but I can likely come up with another idea easily enough.  Hope that clears things up for ya Brit.

I am either going Druid or Ranger, depending on which is needed more.  Although it is looking like Ranger, since we only have one fighter class in the group so far. :)

@Siereis:  How do you feel about the Revised Ranger over the book Ranger.  I prefer the Revised Ranger because the 1st level features aren't so specific that the wrong choice just invalidates your choice.
ie: I am a forest ranger, but the first couple of adventures are underground! :)

Actually, I'd prefer you to use the Unearthed Arcana ranger anyway.  The default released ranger was always sorta underwhelming and whenever I've played in 'real world', my group always uses the UA version.

I had an old cleric character I might actually try to put together for this that would work well since we 1: only have one dedicated fighter that I could see, and 2: we don't have a lot of healing at the moment, at least again none that I saw.  That way Cerulean can play her Bard, and we have a role filled we actually need filled if no one else wants to play a cleric.  :D  The only problem is that my 3.5e cleric had some other stuff added into her beyond the usual healing spells, i.e., I got my hands on The Book of Erotic Fantasy when it was new and I was a BIG Firefly fan.  I still am, but my point being that my cleric gal was meant to be a mystical version of a Companion, essentially, taking her cues from Inara Serra lol.  Well, her personality and such was loosely based on that empathy and compassion for people in general that Inara presented, but my problem is that I'm not sure what Sieress would think about having anything related to the Book of Erotic Fantasy thrown into this.

I CAN just have my cleric's Sacred Prostitute related stuff simply be more for flavor than any mechanical related stuff, that way we stick to much more normal cleric related powers and such, but the only other problem is simply trying to think of how to best introduce her to this group since she normally has a friend with her.  A ranger gal I created around the same time, years ago now, but my mild obsession with 'ahem', Drizzt Do'Urden related stories from R.A. Salvatore was normally paired with my cleric as more a friend and protector than an actual lover, although I had considered it a few times lol.  That and my cleric was typically a higher level than usual, due to them both being fairly experienced, which makes me wonder if having her have severe amnesia wouldn't be a bad idea?

That actually might work, have my cleric kinda stumble into the village, bereft of her memories, save for a battered, burnt journal or something, detailing, at least in part, some of her life before waking up in a strange village some months ago.  That way she's back at level 1, and she has to figure out who and what she is now by accompanying the rest of the villagers to this crypt.  What do you think Sieress?  Would it be cool if I used my cleric, even if she's just using the SP stuff as more flavor and such for roleplay interactions?

Vehk

Class: Fighter, Two Weapon Fighting Style
Bio:
Vehk has always been a bit of an airhead, following his heart rather than listening to reason.  Enamored with blades and fire from a young age he was considered a serial troublemaker.  He honed his skill with blades through play, then practice, then dedication.  Operating off the Vehkian logic that two is always better than one he practiced using two blades at once.  Loyal to his friends, as quick to forgive as he is to anger, and generally off-the-wall Vehk looks forward to the ceremony with some trepidation.  Will this set him free?  Or make him more like everyone else?

Str: 10
Dex: 16 (Var Human'd)
Con: 16 (Var Human'd)
Int: 8
Wis: 8
Cha: 14



If Vergil would prefer not to go Cleric, I'm happy to fill the role.  I'm big into being healers!

Aldon
Aldon
Bio:  A sickly boy, from a young age Aldo was interested in healing and religion.  Fascinated by the forces of life and death he sought answers and solace in religion, becoming an apt pupil in the ways of the Cleric.  He hopes to continue his studies beyond the village, and yearns to learn the greatest healing powers possible.
Class: Cleric

Well, I still stick on my concept :). Also still willing and not backing off.

Concept
Name: Valerus Merenda
Race/Class: Human Paladin 1
Age: 18
Concept: Valerus has wanted to be hero early childhood, his mother working in the sole tavern as barmaid and she slept with a knight who departed to grand crusade by name of Iomedae (albeit to most think/treat his mother as local harlot who sleeps with anyone with coin and story of knight is just lie Valerus). Valerus is not wise or smart, but he has heart right place and he has trained by himself entire life how to wield sword and armor (starting toy swords and kitchen wear as armor). Out sort desperation mother send him study to local smith and for time there was hope for him as he eagerly took his studies...but when his artisan work for graduation was self-made armor and sword, there was no way shift his focus on any serious job in the village and was still dead set to become a crusading knight!

Soon after followed the adulthood ceremony and it's mother's last hope get her son straight and settle down, instead running off and get himself killed for sake of story she weaved from one night stand with a mercenary, who did pay sleep with her but had nice huge dick as well and she did enjoy herself. Perhaps sake of that enjoyment she carried pregnancy through with faint hope mercenary had returned back to her (as he promised), but most likely had died on field of battle.

OOC GOAL: Play Int/Wis 8 paladin, overall try aim 'dumb but charming/handsome' hero idolizer approach.
