Story
Nidhogg is a slender dwarf with knobby joints, a thin grey beard and heavy bags below his eyes. Not particularly bright Nidhogg earned his name when he killed a rival in a duel over a lover. His birth name was struck from dwarven history, he was ostracized and he was re-named Nidhogg (Malice Striker). For the last 80 years he has lived amidst humans though not honestly. He uses he aged appearance often to allay suspicions while wandering seeking to rob the unsuspecting. Recently he has begun to think of his declining years and seeks to gain a large stake of coin to spend his life in ease from adventuring.

Well done Ghostofmarx, great back story [img]images/smiley/smiley.png[/img]

Nidhogg shall begin play with 8 hit points.
I've added Nidhogg's boon over on the PC generation thread.
Nidhogg's XP bonus is 6% (4% from wisdom + 2% from dexterity).

Back Story
Wibert is curious and mischievous to the point of foolishness at times. He has a wavy mass of light brown hair, blue eyes and a farmer's tan.
Growing up on a farm he often wondered if the goblins farmed the Halflings as they often raided the valley and many a friend have gone missing. Wilbert grew to be a best cook in his village, but his devotion to gathering ingredients did get him in trouble at times, as he forgets to pay for them. Finding like minded friends in the back streets of town he mastered surprise attacks with daggers, the art of obtaining items unseen, and how to spin a good lie.
On night full of ale and tavern tales of fighting goblins and finding treasure, he vowed to avenge his lost friends. He found the goblin cave in the hills, and true to his name €˜the shadow€™ he was not seen or heard as he stole treasure many times. But one night in the goblin cave the goblin wake up so he moved quickly to attack and killed the goblin where he lay. There was such rejoicing in the valley that night to the good news.
Now not content with looting goblins for a few coins here and there, he hid in the first unguarded wagon he could find from a trade caravan heading east hoping to join a band of adventurers in hopes of finding things which are shiny and valuable€

Thief Definition:

A thief must be dexterous and clever. When attacking with surprise he rolls 1 extra damage die for every odd level he has attained, but is limited to light arms -- club, dagger, hammer, hand axe, hand crossbow, short bow, short sword, sling, staff, whip. While he wears only light armour and eschews both shield and helm a thief also enjoys the following benefits; When operating in an urban or dungeon environment he surprises enemy 4 times in 6, is surprised only 1 time in 6 himself, has 4 chances in 6 of performing any feat of subterfuge or of locating secret or concealed objects, and adds +2 to saving throws that require quick reflexes. A thief also earns +50% XP bonus loot acquired in secret (i.e., not divided fairly among the other players).

Very good Heartless. Just a few corrections...

AC is 6 (base 7 for leather armour, adjusted by 1 for high dex).

Saving Throw is 16 (base 17 at level 1, -2 for halflings, but +1 for low wisdom).

A "Halfling Talent" is a +1 attack adjustment with slings and thrown missiles.

Excepting the saving throw adjustment (which is already taken into consideration, above) the other "Halfling Talents" you have listed are really "Thief Talents".

You might just call them all "Talents" and not be concerned with where they come from [img]images/smiley/smiley.png[/img]

Hit Points : 10 / 11

Armour Class : 7 (Helmet+Shield, wooden)

Story
Born the son of a tailor, Koch always knew he was destined for a more exciting life than stitching tunics all day. When goblins raided his town, he joined the militia and helped combat and defeat the incoming forces. He earned the nickname 'the hale' for his everlasting vigor and energy in combating goblins through the night and chasing down and slaying the final fleeing group. Since this battle, Koch's followed his adventurous heart hoping to gain some fame and fortune.

Gear
Boon: a large pair of exquisitely made steel and etched silver tailor's shears.

They come complete with a supple leather holster on a matching belt.

Nice work ProfessorP, all looks very good.

In answer to your questions:

-Do you want to know the exact placement of each item?
No.

-Is this too many items for one backpack?
No.

-Is HD, EXP, AC, ST correct?
Yes, except hp adjustment for 16 constitution is +5, so overall you will begin with 1d6+1+5 hit points.

-Would you like damage dice and AC bonuses/penalties for each weapon and armor typed out?
Only if you want to do so for your own benefit. I'll be taking care of those details during combat resolution either way.

-What is the functional difference between a wooden and steel shield?
A wooden shield is cheaper, lighter and more available than a steel shield. Also, I'm planning to introduce the Shields Shall Be Splintered option shortly, and wooden shields will soak up to 6 hit points, and steel shields up to 10 hit points (or something to that effect).

-Is the light hammer like a carpenters hammer? (just trying to get a mental picture)
Yes, pretty much.

-For one belt pouch - can it start out with bullets for the sling? if so how many could it hold?
A pouch could hold, perhaps, up to a dozen stones. But you wouldn't need to lug that many around. I'll let you forage sling stones in most places.

-For the other belt pouch - can it start out with a few sewing needles and thread, as per the characters background?
Yes.

.~-= Desmond (the Moody) =-~.

Biology : Male Halfling
Alignment : Neutral

Class & Levels : Challenger (lvl 3) Fighter
Experience Points : 8191
XP Bonus : 5%
Hit Dice : 3d6+4 HD
Hit Points : 12/15

Armour Class : 2 / 5
Saving Throw : 11

Story
Desmond is fast, even by halfling standards. He is quick with his sword and even faster with his knives. This translates into other parts of his life, as well. For example, he is also a bit rash, running into fights without thinking about the consequences. He isn't stupid, mind you... in fact, he's quite smart! He just doesn't have a lot of common sense.

He spent most of his childhood working the family farm with his brothers and sisters. After a quarrel with his dad (the standard disciplinary talk for fighting with the neighbor boys), Desmond felt he could put his skills to better use and left that night to make his own way. Unfortunately, in his haste to leave he forgot to pack most of his belongings.

He tends to be a bit obsessive compulsive with his equipment and spends his down time constantly whetting the blades of his sword and knives. But the action is simply a soothing one, more so than a concern with maintaining sharpness.

Update:
After eating the seed of a fruit from a mysterious upside down tree, Desmond grew a second head! His name is Mondes and he's generally pretty surly. As of late, it seems that Desmond is the cheery one and Mondes is the sour one, thus giving new meaning to "the Moody".

STR : 6, 4, 1 = 11 (--)

CHA : 4, 1, 6 = 11 (--)

Talents/Skills

+3 To Hit w/melee weapons
+1 Melee Damage
2/1 APR vs. 1HD creatures

Boon
...A silver whistle the size of his little finger, which hangs on a leather cord around his neck. It produces a tone so shrill is is barely audible to Halflings, and is beyond the hearing of Men. It is perfectly irritating to dogs, bats, and other animals with sensitive ears, however.

Very nice Ehiker -- Halflings do seem to be in vogue lately [img]images/smiley/smiley.png[/img]

Here are a few of the missing pieces...

XP Bonus : 5% (3% due to strength + 2% due to wisdom)
Hit Dice : 1d6+1 (1st level fighting-man) +4 (constitution)
Hit Points : starting with (1d6=4) 9 hit points (all HD are re-rolled after each major town-stop).

Desmond's Boon is a silver whistle the size of his little finger which hangs on a leather cord over his neck. It produces a tone so shrill is is barely audible to Halflings, and is beyond the hearing of Men. It is perfectly irritating to dogs, bats, and other animals with sensitive ears, however.

Also, as Desmond is already deft (due to his dexterity 15) you might (or might not) consider an alternate appellation...
