The Paladin was more of an example. It would be fun to play him, but since we've already got several paladins, I think I'll play a druid or a bard then, if that's okay. You don't mind me switching, do you?
No problem, it's really up to you. When you are ready, just post the sheet and background to the Characters thread, and everyone can pick it apart in the OOC .

The druid is my favorite class, and I could create a super cool background for him.
Druid would be fine, especially since we are really lacking in the healing department.

Woowoo! I'll make my character right now.

Which edition are we using? 3.0 or 3.5?

Hmm... We never did discuss that. Hold on a minute while we have a discussion in the OOC.

Okay, it seems the concensus is 3.0. It doesn't make that much of a diffrence anyway during the course of game play since this is a freeform anyway, but since all the current characters were created under 3.0 rules it make sense to continue making new character that way.

Post your character in the Cast thread so that we have a chance to check it over. Once its determined that everything is kosher you'll be ready to start posting IC.

Oh, and you can post in the OOC thread once your character is up.

Wow, not a lot of people have posted here in a while. But, I've (sort of) been following along with this game, and am rather intrigued by it. I'll toss in an idea and see if its accepted. I have a whole slew of other ideas if it isn't.

Ben
Lv 4 Fighter
23 years old

Born into an unknown family, Ben has always been a wanderer, traveling with a group of mercenaries whose names have long been forgotten. They were his family for all intents and purposes, but then something happened, an incident that took all he had known in the world away from him. The group had been hired to rid a small town of a pack of goblins that lay within the nearby woods. Ben was the only survivor of whatever it was that happened, the only one to walk out of the woods two ten-day later. Apparently it was so terrible that Ben is unable to remember what happened, for he claims no memory of what transpired within the woods. Now at the age of 15, he was given what little was recovered of the mercenary group and was suddenly on his own for the first time ever.

In truth, Ben knows exactly what transpired that within the woods, knows exactly what it was that killed off every last person Ben had ever known. It was Ben himself, though he can think of no reason why he would do such a thing. After the group had killed the goblins, Ben suddenly fled into the woods, unable to stop himself from doing so. Over the course of several nights, he observed himself as if from a distance silently approach the group and kill one of their members before silently disappearing again. Within a few nights, the entire group was dead, and Ben, stunned beyond belief, was lying near a clearing, only barely remember what had transpired. He felt for sure that it could not have been true, that it was only a dream, but at the exact spots he remembered, he found the corpses of the only family Ben had ever known. For many days he was in the woods, hardly eating, barely thinking, too stunned by what he had done, what he had no control over, to even speak. Eventually recovering himself, he made his way to the town, and swore that he would make up for whatever it was that caused him to kill off his family and friends.

Unknown to Ben, a small portion of a demon servant's blood courses in his veins, from far back in his family line. This allowed a demon, who had been thwarted by the group Ben was living with, to more easily gain control of him, essentially ordering him to slay the group, and Ben had no way of disobeying, even though he was not aware of the command. Regardless, Ben now travels the world, trying to do the most good to make up for the terrible deed that he has no idea why he committed.


So, hows it look? I can change it if desired, or come up with an entirely different character if this one won't work.

So far there isn't any objection to you joining. There are some concerns about the character. Basically, from a racial standpoint, he needs to be one of the standard PHB races. That means no tieflings or anything like that. Aside from that, the whole "taken over by a demon" thing really needs to be in his past. I don't think anyone wants to see that happen in-game as an excuse for him to go on a killing spree.

Outside of that, I'd say read as much of the story as you can - at the very least, I think you should read all of Chapter 5.

I do! There hasn't been enough slaughter in this game recently.

In that case, be sure to start by killing the one armed bard.

I've already had a character killed of. So have you, though for different reasons.

It's someone else's turn, dang nab it

I'd concur. Tortured pasts are what basically all of our characters are about. I wouldn't discourage exploring this, just be careful how it's done. The only thing I'd advise for the future is to not give so much away.

Oh doesn't a character in our game have a deceased brother named Ben? That'll be fun.

And yes, we haven't had indescriminate slaughter since the incident in Karkas, which I may or may not have been responsible for.

Fair enough. I have no idea what character I'd introduce after that though. If he gets axed prepare for a lengthy absence.

Well Cadrius has been axed before. And stabed, and beaten.

That guy must be one big walking scar.

Unacceptable. It's not that hard, just think back to your angsty teenage years and pick something.

Please. I'm still in my angsty teenage years.

And yeah, he does have an awful lot of scars given the lack of magical healing throughout the game. Somehow though, they always manage to miss his face so he doesn't turn into the "I'm horribly scarred, tough-as-nails warrior" cliche.

And Gral, not everyone remembers the great depression

Great depression indeed. I'm hardly that old.

Well, I'm off to listen to my 8-track collection.

It was brought to my attention that I totally and completely misread your background. I'm not sure how that happened. I'll blame the early onset of Alzheimer's and move right along. It looks good to me.

You did make one good point though.

Saying that he woke up, and was covered in blood keeps us in the dark slightly, and when you bring it out later on in the game we, the other players, would be more open to the idea.

I know that when i read the word demon, i cringed and had visions of ghost-liches.

Yes, I think we are all still having ghost-lich nightmares. I know I am. Of course, I've been having those since before I knew who Nestro was so maybe I don't count.
