I never got much mileage out of my punk-ass teenager character(I don't even remember the campaign :( ) so I think it's time for a round two.

Going all out Warlock, yo. Adjust your own characters appropriately.

Character Sheet

Face, eyes and blue skin like this.
Horns and long black hair like this

Vivi's parents were killed in one of the small wars between nations and churches. She ended up alone in the middle of a battlefield and wandered into the woods, where she experienced “enlightenment” and seems to have made a pact with something out of the Fey. She is at home in the woods but enjoys sneaking into cities and loitering.

Vivi wears a tattered leather long coat, a torn and ragged cloak, dirty dress shoes with holes in them and a headband with antlers.

My character is a human monk who tells everyone just to call him Pitamaha, meaning Grandfather. He is 79 years old and has the beard to prove it, though he remains quite fit for a man of his age. He travels from village to village by camel, preaching and contemplating (for they are the same) the mysteries of his god Amethyst, and carrying nothing but a light pack, a simple wooden staff, the clothes on his back, and the turban on his head. He says his past is unimportant; do you believe him?

Hmm. I think I played a pious elder in the last game I played with this group. That is just a coincidence.

I don't really have a name for my character yet. She's a writer and artist, travelling the world and fighting in search of inspiration for her stories about battles and heroism, She's in her mid thirties, wears an eyepatch over one eye, and a monocle in the other, one due to her weak eyesight, the other.. well, she'll tell you about that if you ask nicely enough, she has a story for everything. Her deity is  Rothdar, the god of freedom and strength, She's loud and outgoing and honest, although she will stretch the truth a little with some of the stories she claims are true.

I can't really think of a class yet, I was thinking something martial-oriented, i've had bard suggested a bit, too, which I think would be cool, I'm waiting on my paypal so that i can check out the website and put her together.

Martial can fulfill most roles. Damage dealer, Healer(Warlord), Tank... Controller might be possible but I bet that'd be a Book 3 Psionics/Monk thing.

Bard is pure awesome healer. Surprisingly good at a bit of control and damage.

Okay, going rogue because bard seems popular. Basically looking to see if I left out anything important.

If we have too many strikers, I can easily adapt this character to be a Battlemind.

He is 79 years old and has the beard to prove it, though he remains quite light on his feet for a man of his age. He travels from village to village by camel, preaching and contemplating (for they are the same) the mysteries of his god Amethyst, traveling lightly, rocking a sweet turban, and armed with a scimitar. He says his past is unimportant; do you believe him?

There, revised. JD has the final version.

Briar was born under a sign of ill omen and her clan left her in the hands of a mercenary company. Through them she learned the arts of survival and war. She pays fealty to Vaur'cha, though she does not accept the god's philosophy of conquest. Briar struggles with concepts like honesty and justice in what seems to be an uncaring world. She's forever searching for clues to her background so she can track down her clan and learn her true name.

Well I started making a Bard assuming there wouldn't be much support, but Stush has actually been planning on making one but hasn't been able to get the resources yet. So sticking with rogue, now with my bard's backstory.

Ampersand was part of the semi-famous troubadour trio "Dunmer & Son", performing in and stealing from cities all over Rynwold. Fate, or karma, having caught up with the group, a larger group of bandits cornered them, killing Dunmer and his son while Ampersand seized the opportunity to escape.

Now traveling on his own, Ampersand spends far less time actually performing and more time swindling and generally fucking with civilians. Completely at home in a city, he has next to no actual dungeoneering experience.

Francisca is a travelling writer, Her mother was a famous writer of historical tales, and her father was a soldier, she wanders between taverns and inns, toting a backpack full of books, buying drinks for old soldiers in exchange for their stories, which she takes notes on, and then writes a much more exciting version of events. She is working on a compilation of stories, and her own autobiography. She is so skilled a wordsmith that most find it hard to believe that large parts of the stories are not true, though. Friendly, loud and larger than life, she is always looking for other people to travel with.

She is a bard, though she has little musical talent, and the only strength she has is in her back, from carrying heavy books around, her true skill in combat lies in doing harm to the enemy through the sheer power of insults, and helping her allies with inspirational speeches.

Shit. I could have sworn I posted his stuff.
JD I'm PMing you the stats.

I'll be playing Dog the Digger, a slayer who comes from a long line of Gravediggers and Undead Slayers. He travels from town to town armed with his sword and shovel to help the living with their dead, be they being put to rest or up and causing a ruckus. Growing up in a unique environment such as his, let him feel equally comfortable in a city and under one.

That is a cool character. I'm picturing him either being ironically cheerful or grimly humorous and therefore likable despite his profession (and constant allusions to it). Also in my mind he looks like Brook from One Piece.

I gave myself two new abilities, Master Diplomat, so if I don't like the results of a diplomacy roll, I can roll it again. And Friendly Deception, I can use words of friendship to boost a bluff check too now.
