Bio:
Many people wonder what lies within the wilds of the realms. No one doubts that both man, beast, and fiend lie within them, but just what it is that makes that noise, that chill that rises up into people's bones. Some fools rush out and see what it is, never to return when the sun rises again, yet others, go out and sometimes come back, but not only do they come back, they bring the beasts head with them. Grinex is one of these people, plowing forth into the unknown lands, seeking something that he himself would like to know. Within the wild woods, the fester swamps, the icy mountains, and dark tombs, he walks. Exploring that which others would clearly, and wisely, avoid. Is it gold and riches that push his path, his attire shows wealth, if one could look under the dirt plastered over it.

But if asked the answer it is no, perhaps power then? Something all crave at some point or another, but that again is not his motivation, then perhaps some vow or creed, yet again it is no. His origins are from the wilds themselves, from barbarian bands, to becoming the wandering soldier, to guide and guard of merchants and farmer alike. But as the tale grew so did his name, from foul beasts devouring souls of the living in remote towns or villages, to the unexplored paths into both the ground and mountains alike. Tale spread of the wandering half-breed and his skills of wrath.

For where he went one would know, that all around him would be set aglow.     
For off the beaten path he now will go, with eyes above that will keep him in tow


Hello Everyone. What's up?

Nice so far; please use the more 'compact' char sheet format mentioned in my opening post.

Kirinis

Not-standard races in principle are fine. Just don't be offput if you play, say, a minotaur, and human townspeople freak out and run away.

Yes, there is still room. I never understood why most people do their RPs first-come-first-serve rather than picking the best. Also the party size isn't fixed and will depend on the number of compatible-seeming players.

Nikki

Ah okay, the Ranged property. Thanks for the page number reference! I agree, a nice way to give her a ranged weapon without having to sheath/draw to switch to a bow.

The shield can only hold one crystal at a time (from MiC p221 "Each item can hold a single augment crystal"). If you find an armor augment crystal it could go in her armor though.

Here's the example stat block linked in my original post. (Don't worry, you're not fighting a Balor at level 9, it's just an example - and a good one, since it has a lot of 'stuff'). Try to follow its format as closely as you know how; I'm used to scanning stat blocks like this for my DMing (from SRD monsters and my own NPcs I create) so it's much faster for me, would help me handle a larger party, and be quicker later on.

The Balor has a lot of 'stuff', so if you copy-paste it to use as a template, you can delete lines like 'Aura' and 'Spell-Like Abilities' that don't apply to your char.

the Balor has some abilities, like its True Seeing, 'written out' / 'described' at the end. Doing that for your own character's abilities (class features like smite evil, etc.) is optional. (I may later ask for ones I'm not familiar with to be written out.)

Since the Balor doesn't cast spells, an example (from Alustriel Silverhand) of spells is pasted afterwards.

Following its stat block, I copied a 'blanked out' one that may be quicker to use as a template.

I changed 'Treasure' to 'Equipment'. I recommend, as some players thoughtfully have, including the price of each item in parentheses.

Overall Nicci's stat block for Cecily is a good example of all this. It may be a useful copy-paste template for you since your character is likely to be dissimilar to a Balor.

The distinction between Special Attacks and Special Qualities is somewhat suggestive; the former tend to be things that require an action and are often offensive, like Smite Evil, the latter tend to be 'passive' abilities that are 'always on' and usually defensive in nature, like Evasion.

Filling out both Attack and Full Attack is not necessary, is one is usually pretty obvious from the latter (add or remove the iterative attacks).

Coolies, I'll get to work on trying to come up with a character.  And when you say 1st party stuff is fine, whereas 3rd party stuff isn't, I'm guessing that means only books released by Wizards are useable?

Yes.

There may be exceptions (I think the 3rd ed Dragonlance Campaign Setting was actually written 3rd party then licensed or bought by Wizards, and it's well done). If you have something in mind, you can ask about it (but the answer will likely be 'no, and I haven;t even heard of it').

By far the most common 3rd party reference I see at Elliquiy is Book of Erotic Fantasy. It may be useful for ideas, but its crunchy stuff is kinda bad (and mostly based on a new 7th ability score) but if you would've wanted to use something from it, I probably know of an alternative with very similar flavor.

Eh, no, I wasn't planning on using that particular book.  This doesn't seem like the type of campaign for it.  And I can't think of any 3rd party books in particular I would have wanted to use, I just wanted to be sure.

Oh, here's a question?  How do you feel about having a Warforged in Faerun?  Finding himself in a world not his own, having to deal with people who've never seen a creature like him before.

Ah.  I'd love to play Dora again in someone else's game!  (Awakened Cat Druid that is, not the ex-familiar variant, as it's not quite canon.  (Though it is on the Wizards of the Coast website.)

Alternatively, I could reprise my very first Faerun character... Tagan.  Grey Elven Wild Mage/Ranger.

Things have changed quite a bit since second edition, but the character is still playable in 3.5

Pick your favorite, and I'll whip the sheet into shape!

Thanks!

Warforged is okay. It could be somehow spelljammed / warped from Eberron. Or a reflufed Modron (in fact there's one such in another campaign I'm in).

Either sounds great, Tagan. I don't know of RtR had a selected timeline, but this one will be towards the end of 1371 (I also sometimes like to play PCs across multiple campaigns, at different levels). I suppose I lean a bit towards Tagan simply b/c I haven't gotten to 'meet' her yet and now you've got me curious (and wild magic is fun), but play whichever you prefer.

Kelsie’s Holy Medalion:  (19,000)
This rose quartz disk radiates a soft rosy glow (as per Continual Flame.)  It is on a sting of white ceramic beads. 
It provides +4 wisdom and the properties of an amulet of retributive healing. 
Devoting your life to healing is often a thankless job. An amulet of retributive hea¬ing ensures that if you tend to your allies, you are renewed in turn. 
When you activate your amulet, the next effect you use before the end of your turn that heals another creature's damage also heals you of an equal amount, as long as you could be healed by that same effect.
If the effect heals multiple creatures, you only gain the retributive healing once per effect.
For example, a human cleric casting cure light wounds on an ally after activating this amulet would gain the same amount of healing, but a human wizard casting repairlight damage on her warforged ally would not benefit from activating the amulet (since that spell only affects constructs).

Life was a cutthroat existance in the bogs of Vaasa, at any minute one's life was forfeit either to the strong or to the environment which ate goblins unwary and less so with equal vigor.  As a child of the Coldtree Tribe, Dokri lived such a life and internalized the lessons well.  The world would not grant any favors that he could not wrest for himself.  Being fed and not beaten required a sharp and cunning mind.  Whomever was strongest had the right to rule and all others to serve until they could overthrow the strongest.

Dokri realized that dominance in Vaasa was a very short-lived creature.  There was something that got you regardless of how careful one could be.  As such, it was foolish to attempt to thrive in the hard lands of Vaasa.  The first opportunity he found, Dokri fled the bogs and towards civilization.  However as a goblin, life was hard in the civilized cities.  Ill-trusted and harried by zealous citizens eager to exterminate him, Dokri grew in stealth and cunning in order to survive.

As he grew into his skills, Dokri gradually moved south from the Moonsea through various cities before finally ending up in Cormyr.  Dokri has established himself as a small-time facilitater in the  Cormyran underworld.  There was no task too small or dirty that Dokri would not do.  As such, he earned coin and created a comfortable life there in Suzail.  Dokri is mindful to keep his head down, particular during the Goblin Wars where a goblin roaming the captial would be less than appreciated.

The current situation in Cormyr is an excellent opportunity to fatten his pouch again as chaos roams through the streets of Suzail.  This is indeed a most profitable time to be alive.

For any one who is wearing medium or heavy armor, there is a super useful magic property in the magic item compendium. It's called magical armor. It is a flat 2000 gp, where as a standard action you can 'summon' your armor on and off of your body. When you are not wearing it, it will just lay there in your bag or in your room.

You have to be in the same plane with your armor to get this to work, so not that big of a negative. If you get portaled into another dimension, then that is a small concern for now.

Book of erotic fantasy has some useful things in it. The celestium material for armor is quite good. Some of the base races are decent as well. Kundala is a interesting variety on the monk.

Since I went for adamantine longsword, I went and got power attack in order to get improved sunder. Since cleaving a +1 magic weapon with one swipe is just precious.

Having ten feats is just so silly.

Hey there! Posting a character bio and general build notes as I work on the sheet.

Bio:

CONCEPTION: THE SIEGE
Nobody talked about it anymore. Nobody wanted to.

The battle had started like any other…an order of paladins defending a fortress against a brutal orcish assault. The paladins were outnumbered, of course, but that was no new development for the holy warriors. They were a small but unique order dedicated to Tempus…dedicated to turning the arts of battle to the good of man-or-what-have-you kind. Hence they had journeyed here, to where they had heard tell of an orcish attack that would have left many bodies of innocents in its wake.

The battle was at a standstill when a figure in black appeared amidst all of it, jamming its staff into the ground and rending the earth with a cry of power and fury. Within moments, what was a battle between two sides became one between three, as a slew of fiends came crawling from the depths to assault both the orcs and paladins.

A hasty alliance was made as the orcs found themselves trapped in the secure fortress with their former foes and the siege began.

The siege lasted for months before the last fiends were eliminated in a concerted rush. In honor of their fallen friends and enemies alike, the orcs retreated to their homelands while the paladins did the same. No one spoke of what happned in the fortress during those months…tales of heroism came forth eventually, of course, but there are other sides to siege…things done that no one speaks of. Moments seized when all seems lost…moments created by two people giving into loneliness and terror and seeing their own mortality far, far too close.

In a few months, a female orc named Oranka discovered the results of such a moment.

She named him Dakkath.

BARBARISM: FIRST LOSSES

Dakkath’s childhood was neither cruel nor kind. Orcs expected their young to keep up and Dakkath’s human blood did not make him an exception to the rule. He was trained ruthlessly, constantly…he was given no quarter, asked for none, and gave none when pitted against the stronger, more brutal youths of his clan. He held his own, though never matching them in their raw force and rarely coming out on the winning side of fights.

As he grew older, his thin orc blood grew more and more apparent. His skin was lighter than the others, his muscular body strong but never stooped. Oranka joked that he had more of his father in him than she’d had, as the boy grew up to be quite an attractive half-orc…his face bore the tell-tale heavy brow and pronounced lower jaw, but not to the extreme that many faced, and the rest of his countenance was considered handsome by what traders were willing to brave the orc’s encampments. In his teenage years, young Dakkath found himself shoved to the forefront of such trading excursions, his attractive appearance and more amicable demeanor leading to increased trading prospects for the clan.

A capable warrior and by default the tribe’s only diplomat, Dakkath’s life was good as he began adulthood. Many wondered whether he would be content to stay with the tribe or whether he would seek his fortunes in another country…he was a powerful enough warrior and with his ready wit, he could be quite an asset to a military or mercenary group.

Unfortunately, that question was never answered.

The tribe’s leaders heard tell of a figure in black that had appeared on the outskirts of their territory. A familiar figure…one that had last been seen almost twenty years ago during the siege that had resulted in Dakkath. It was time to settle a score.

Messages were sent to the temples of Tempus, seeking the paladins who had fought alongside the orc tribe years ago, offering them a chance to scourge the realms of the monster that both groups reviled. But the orcs could not wait for their allies to arrive…they had to march, to hunt their target as fast as possible, before he could slip away or cause more havoc.

The tribe’s scouts tracked the dark figure to a canyon where it had apparently set up some kind of camp. Wardrums beating, the tribe marched forward, breaking into a run as they saw their target…saw the fiends he had summoned crawling out of the shadows to meet them. Orc collided with monster, axe with flesh, claws with skin, as a battle was joined with two sides equally as rage-bidden as the other.

The orcs were outnumbered and more fiends were flowing out of the walls of the canyon. Had it been an ambush? Had the dark man known they would be coming? Dakkath watched helplessly as his clanmates…his brothers…even his aging but still warring mother…fell to the claws and weapons of the hellish nightmare that advanced on him. Screaming in fury, he and his last few comrades hurled themselves into the gap left by his mother’s falling, their weapons flashing, their bodies soaked in blood.

The last thing Dakkath remembered were the sharp pain in his side, the impact he felt as his body fell atop his mothers, and the sounds of a warrior’s battlehorn, echoing off the walls of the canyon…but neither orcs nor fiends carried such instruments to battle…

HOLY WARRIOR: NEW LIFE

When Dakkath awoke, his mind assessed the situation rapidly.

First, he was naked. This was how he usually awoke, so it was not a major impasse. However, he was covered in bandages and it hurt to move.

Second, he was not in a tent or yurt, but in a room of what looked to be a stone building. He lay not in furs and skins, but in a bed.

Third, there was a man watching him. The man looked oddly familiar, but Dakkath had never seen him before. In the strange man’s hand was a lion-fang pendant…Dakkath recognized it as the one his mother always wore.

“You’re awake,” said the man softly, reaching out to touch the half-orc’s brow carefully. “That’s good. I was worried for a bit. They didn’t know if you’d make it.”

Dakkath sat up…gingerly, and looked at the man for a long moment, unable to form words to the question he wanted to ask. Finally, he found his tongue.

“Who are you?”

The man smiled slightly and held out a cup of water, which Dakkath took gratefully.

“I’m your father. What’s your name?”

 ***

They shared their stories in their own time…the paladin, named Drayson, wanted to know all about Dakkath’s life amongst the orcs and how he’d faired amongst his mother’s people. Dakkath told him everything and Drayson listened without judgement or disapproval. He then apologized to his son for leaving him fatherless…he had no idea till he’d seen Dakkath lying on the field, barely alive, shielding Oranka’s body, that he even had a son. He’d recognized Dakkath’s eyes as his own and had brought the wounded half-orc back to the temple. Dakkath was his tribe’s last known survivor.

“You are welcome to stay with us, son,” Drayson said, pressing the lion-fang amulet into the young half-orc’s hand. “We could use a warrior of your skills and you may find the faith to your liking...you were born of a battle, after all, and what else could show a mark of Tempus’ favor than that?”

Dakkath clasped his father’s hands and smiled, before toppling back onto the bed, exhausted. Sorrow lurked in him, at having lost the only family he knew, but here was a new beginning, waiting for him.

HELLREAVER: THE NIGHTMARE OF FIENDS

The battlefield was strewn with ichor and severed limbs, twisted and shattered under the force of the blade wielded by the figure surrounded by strange smoke. Clad in spiked armor, Dakkath stood, facing the figure robed in darkness that had time and again haunted his past and present. The figure was gibbering, stumbling backwards, clutching the stub where its arm had been. Dakkath recognized the face…an orcish shaman that had been banished from the tribe he’d grown up with. The man who’d summoned the fiends that had surrounded and slaughtered his father and his men as they fought off a bandit incursion. The man who was responsible both for his birth and the death of those who birthed him.

The half-orc raised his hand to his neck, drawing out two amulets that rested against the mithril steel of his armor. One, a set of lion’s fangs, arranged in a sunburst. The other, a forged steel shield and sword, the symbol of Tempus.

“My parents would be proud,” the half-orc sneered. Like justice unstoppable, he crossed the floor, barreling through a last ditch spell from his target as his falchion came cleaving downwards, the curved blade whistling through the air and cutting off the summoner’s final scream as it split his skull…and jaw…and ribcage…the mighty blow ending only when the blade had cut halfway through the foe’s body. With a wrench, Dakkath pulled the weapon free and smiled, tucking the symbols of his parents back under his armor and nodding in satisfaction.

“Never again. Not to anyone, not anywhere, not anyway,” he said, softly and grimly to the battlefield around him. “No more. I will make hell fear me.”

Okay...that's really long...sorry...

everyone

Two more lines to add to the template:

After the character name, a line for race and classes, for example:

"Imoen
Human Thief-3 Wizard-5 Arcane Trickster-1
Medium Humanoid (human)
..."

Also, after Skills, a line for Skill Ranks:

"
Skills: Jump +7, Tumble +9
Skill Ranks: Jump +5, Tumble +5
"

Keeping track of the ranks helps with keep tracking for level-ups, prereqs,synergies, general double-checking, etc. They're not part of the standard stat block but I find it quite helpful with my own chars. Also, under Skill Ranks, put the number of points you've put into Speak Language, if any, like Muse did.

Also, HP are the normal deterministic amount of max at first level, half after (rounding down first, then up, then alternating).

Also, Traits and Flaws are permissible (though not necessarily advantageous), if anyone was wondering. Variant classes probably are too, like the Human Paragon Muse used - but not any UA material that's actual changes to the rulesystem (the various alternate sytems).

Customized magic items may be asked about, generally okay things that are lateral switches (like a Flame Tongue which is a scimitar instead of a longsword and otherwise the same) or items which follow the price formulas such as the bonus-squared or uses-per-day formulae. For example, an item which combines two 'official' items and has the price of (price of greater)+1.5x(price of lesser.) Also for example, an item which casts bless weapon 3/day for 1,080 gp (=1800 * 3/5); note that casting the spell is a separate action from attacking with the weapon you use it on. If you do something like this, in the parenthetical with the item price, include a blurb on how you calculated it.

(Generally these won't be any better than the existing items; I'm not recommending it, just mentioning it.)

A kind of custom item which is frequently asked about and not a good idea are at-will / continuous items, such as at-will Cure Light Wounds or True Strike. (The custom item price formulae are guidelines, not rules or guarantees). Preexisting unlimited / continuous / at-will items in the srd / manuals are fine  (such as the energy resistance items which are effectively continuous Resist Energy of one type,  or the Ring of Feather Falling, or Ring of Freedom of Movement).


Muse

Don't forget the save mods! The template just left the +s in so people wouldn't have to reenter them, but after those go the char's modifier numbers.

Also please include 'Sources' like I mentioned before. Is Kelsie's Holy Medallion a combation of several items? Is the Cormyrean Destrier statistically different from other warhoses?

Kirins

How'd you get 9d6 = 54 HP?

Tackyhillbilly

I don't think Factotums have to put a rank in each skill (a 1st level one likely would've even have enough points). They have all skills as class skils, which means they can (without the cross-class 1/2ing).

If they have a class feature which lets you be considered 'trained' in each skill, I doubt that requires putting ranks in (and you don't have to write the mods for skills you didn't put ranks in).

And don't forget an equipment list (with the prices of items in parentheses).

When you know, you'll know you know.

Cunning Insight, the class ability you speak of, requires 1 rank in the Skill. So no, you don't need a rank in every skill, but it is wise to have one.

10 5 6 5 6 5 6 5 6 5....

The average of a d10 is 5.5, since it's 1-10 and not 0-10, so rounding down is 5 and up is 6.

Yep, just like that!

Also -

1. List race and class(es) on the line after name and before size/type, i.e.

"Human Factotum-9
Medium Humanoid"

2. Skill Ranks line after skills (a PITA for your char, I know.) In Skills itself, don't break out the ranks+ modifiers...but you may wish to keep those handy, either by pasting them below everything else (including Equipment and Sources) or in your own notes.

3. Sources. For wizards.com things like the Font of Inspiration, use a link or just say wizards.com (googling "Font of Inspiration site:wizards.com" will bring almost anything up).
