Okay Gral's character needs to be info fishing too. In fact, let's forget the whole adventure thing, we'll just go fishing.

Yeah, for background pick two skills that you think apply to some part of his background that you want to carry forward into his new life. Then pick two more proficiencies that make you happy - Tools, Gaming Sets, Musical Instruments or Languages (anything except skills, I think). If you are dead set against using anything provided or making something up, you can just miss out on the little feature thing. It's not like it ever really comes into play anyway.

And no fishing!

Oh, and feats: Just pick a feat (any feat) from the Customization section (chapter 6, page 165) that you meet the pre-reqs for (if it has pre-reqs but most don't).

I need to get around to listing how many matchsticks he's carrying, and put the fluff and appearance in the right field. But the important number stuff is done and I'm not the reason we're yet to start.

I blame BRR.

Also, are you sure you don't want to name him something like
  • Mǻn
  • Ẅor-ē-or
  • Şwoŕŕdguŷ
  • Pldn
  • Jn ŧhę ƒishermaň
instead?

Your melee attack bonus is +5 (+3 strength +2 proficient), and damage is by weapon +3 strength. That applies to thrown weapons also. Sadly for other ranged weapons you'll need to use dexterity. I say bring some javelins and call it a day.

Ranged weapons? I thought that's why Tash was in the party

Bring javelins. And a shield. It will make me happy and your guy is so strong he won't even notice them.

Ranger ≠ Paladin.

And Aragorn would never be named Name.

I don't know why you think Aragorn wasn't a Paladin. He was a armored noble warrior, gifted great powers by the gods and literally had healing hands.

Armored? Gifted great powers by the gods? Healing Hands? What books are you thinking of? All he ever did was crush up some herbs in boiling water.

Clearly Gandalf is the paladin of the group, what with his Holy Avenger, Pokemount intelligent warhorse, ability to detect evil, and the fact that he can't cast a spell over third level.

Hands of the King are healing hands. Unless you think the herbs that the healers already had just randomly started working when Aragorn turned up. And his nature as Dnedain were giftted to his people by the gods at the close of the first age.

The maiar are not gods, numenor is a race not a class and rangers are not Paladins.

Am I the reason? Crap, I'm trying to get the sheet done, really. I'll work on it tonight. Promise.

I have a post that is almost ready to go. You'll all need to place yourselves in the scene though.

Put the scene at a fishing spot at the local river. That takes care of why all the important characters are there.

That would be too clever. We'll do things the old fashioned, cliched way! I am postulating that perhaps Jun talked Name into stopping by. The dwarf that hired Silas is named Gundren. Gundren's pal Sildar Hallwinter is a Knight of some reknown who apparently went on ahead with Gundren. He's a guy that maybe Name is interested in meeting so that might be some incentive to tag along.

I worked late, got home late, turned on my computer and sat there watching it go through some kind of update for over an hour. I finished picking my spells, picked my feat, read the ooc and... now I'm falling asleep. But if Gral posts something tomorrow I'll be ready to post back!

Wait, an IC post? No one told me this would be involved?

Tash would you mind if our characters both walked in together? If Jun is pulling Name in, it makes sense.
