I'd wish you luck, but I'm not sure that would be fair to the current players!


I'll roll you some numbers anyway, and you can at least play around with making a PC while you wait [img]images/smiley/smiley.png[/img]

Background:

Adrim and his older brother had been standing watch at the western outpost, there had been no sign of the greenskins for days. Verdin joked that the goblins wouldn't be coming back for months after they had lost so many, but they did come back. Adrim had been checking the far side of the tunnel opening when he heard the sounds of battle, racing back towards his brother he sounded his horn and could see that it was too late the outpost had been over run. Verdin was no where to be found.

The fight was bloody and of the 5 score of Dwarves who had been manning the watch, barely a score survived. Adrim and Verdin were among the lucky until or so he thought, he was summoned before the Watch Captains and was charged with cowardice and blamed for the loss of the outpost. Verdin had told a different story, how he had been checking the farside and it was Adrim who had lost his nerve and broke and ran. The look in his father's eye told him he knew the truth but it was Adrim's duty to always support his brother, he who had been marked for greatness.

Taking the brand of criminal he left the clans and found himself wandering...after months he fell into the Grey Hart, now some see the Dwarvish brand and ignore but others have found him to be a stalwart companion and one who can be depended on and they wonder about him....

BACKGROUND:
No-one seems to be entirely sure when †delwynn fell in with the Grey Hart, or why, but the young magician has been lurking on the fringes of the company for some time now, despite the occasional curse and hurled missile sent his way, that he has so far managed (largely) to avoid.

Of medium height, slim of build, with sandy-brown hair framing an affable, smiling face (that is swift to take on a shrewd, watchful look when he thinks you€™re not looking at him), he is clearly educated €“ cultured even €“ at least that is the impression he tries to give. He certainly affects a cultivated, scholarly manner, but there€™s more than a little of the mountebank about him. Keep your hand on your purse and an eye on your girl when †delwynn€™s around €“ chances are he€™s after both, a predatory, calculating look in his pale blue eyes. His greed is all-too-swift to outweigh his caution, which has led to the occasional blacked eye and split lip from his comrades when he has been caught €˜borrowing€™ from them, although he is swift to bounce back, insisting it was all a misunderstanding and falling over himself to be agreeable to his former antagonists (while quietly marking them for future retribution...)

He spends a lot of time pouring over his (admittedly quite impressive-looking) spell book, although at times he seems a little wary €“ even nervous €“ of it. Surely it couldn€™t be that it doesn€™t belong to him, could it?

Nonetheless, he has proved himself to be a shrewd and capable spell-caster, enough to ensure Sir Trevor has seen fit to permit his continued presence in the ranks of the Grey Hart, despite the occasional €“ heh €“ €˜misunderstanding€™ arising between him and his fellow sell-swords.

€œRuins, you say? Hmm. Yes, potentially interesting, I suppose. I may perhaps join you in investigating them... should I wake up in time... and after a proper breakfast, naturally...

€œIn the meantime fear not, my bold companions; I shall be certain to keep a close and watchful eye on any belongings you may see fit to leave behind while you seek your fortunes...€

Encumbrance:
68/75 lbs

Background:
No one knows The Herald's true name or city of origin. It's said he wanders from place to place, looking for battle on the fringes of civilization. He is loathe to fight other Men, as he considers himself the Champion of Mankind, chosen by the Gods to wipe all Beastmen and other heathens (he tolerates Elf and Dwarf, but just barely) from the face of the earth. Killing other Men in self-defense, on the other hand, is an acceptable course of action.

The Herald is quite lax on enforcing the rules of any temporal church, nor is he too keen on converting the unbelieving Man. His purpose is plain: Beastmen will never accept the Gods, so they must be obliterated. When facing those types, his zeal (i.e. lust for battle) shines like a beacon.

He speaks the language of most Beastmen (Orc, Goblin, and Ogre, to be sure. A smattering of Kobold, as he's troubled by most of the fricatives common to that language) but if he learned them for any reason other than to taunt his enemies before smashing them to pieces with his mace Solais ("Light" in some ancient tongue, he claims), it's not at all clear why.
