Hey bros, I'm playing a human barbarian. Character sheet will be in by this time tomorrow, unfortunately I work soon. But looking forward to doing this! Very new to the format, so be sure to holler if I'm doing something silly.

Here's to hoping the next guys check in with progressively more durable fists.

Greetings everyone! I know that you were all waiting for me with baited breath.  After all, I am the world's most magnificent bard!

And you thought divas were a modern invention...!

Oh, one other thing; if, when looking at my portrait, you could impose an imaginary blue-white filter, you'd have a better idea of what I'm supposed to look like. I couldn't find a white Dragonborn pic...(though if someone is any good with digital picture manipulation or knows where I might find a decent white dragonborn pic, I'd be appreciative of the assist).

I've got my sheet finished. Waiting to find out the other player classes to solidify the default prepared spells list.

What are we doing as far as forming the group to begin with. Do we know each other already, or are we going to be meeting in-game?

The original adventure assumes that the characters are already an adventuring party. However, we have a pretty diverse group, so I am considering coming up with a small, introductory scenario to get everyone together. I'll think about it more overnight, but I am definitely open to everyone's insight/suggestions on this.

I don't have any good thoughts on the subject one way or the other, but I will say I'm willing to tie my backstory in with anyone else's if it makes things easier and/or someone has the interest.

Hello everyone. I'll be playing the rogue Lucien who is an ex-spy now out for his own interests.

I'll say my sheet is done except I had a question about gear. Are we taking the default kit, or can we buy our stuff?

Your equipment should be the standard provided by Class and Background.

Anyone who wants to tie their characters together should feel free to do so.

I'll get my description posted tomorrow. I spent all day traveling and have to get up early to travel for work tomorrow, so calling it a night early.

I'm a Dwarf Druid with the Soldier backstory. Had some good military experiences as a blacksmith for my unit before being transferred to one lead by a corrupt, racist human who abused his position to murder half-elves. Happy to tie into anyone that could relate to any of that.

Dookie, I need to audit my equipment. Otherwise, my character is done.

As for backstories, my guy was booted out of a tribe up north, spent a few years roaming the wilds, and worked as a mercenary. He plays a Celtic version of a lyre and likes jokes.

Might have met your Druid if he was hired to support your company. Dunno if that would fit.

Drust: I'm from northern climes myself. I suspect a touch further north than your homeland. I've fled my own home, heading south, so might have met you on the way. I might be a Sorcerer, but you wouldn't think it to look at me; I've the physique of an athlete and the trappings of an outdoors(wo)man. You know, apart from the whole dragon-lady thing. I also play the lute; the makings of a kick-ass rock band?

Dwarven cleric - I'll get started on the character tomorrow. Very excited here since this is my 1st 5e game, and finally got into NB game :)

Ooh! I play the lute, but I'm also skilled in drums, lyre, and flute.  We can totally jam out.

Though she's a diva herself in  her performing aspect, Aliandra has something of a fascination with heroic types. She's learned that her most popular songs were those which reported the daring deeds of adventurers, so she wants to get the scoop on other bards by joining the ranks of those on the front lines.  So, sort of like Taylor Swift mines her relationships to get hit songs, Aliandra mines the people who explore mines.  And dungeons. And haunted castles.

Oh damn I had not seen there was a specific format for the char sheet...

Now I need to convert things over... :P

Ok, char sheet added, portrait picked and description changed to fit portrait.

With regards to my skills, I have been doubting wether to take on intimidation or investigation. I have finally taken the latter, although I may come to regret this. Both fit the character nicely enough though so...

If it's any consolation, I'll be playing an Intimidatin' sort...

Re: OOC
yes, it is of much consolation. I was looking at the party and it didn't seem that there would be much too much investigators going on... so thats what made me decide for it.

Anyway, glad to have the intimidation base covered.

Re: OOC
I am very much chill with the idea of meeting Magdalein on my way southward. Would she be the mercenary sort?

And on a side note, we ought to plan ahead with regards to who is going to be who in the band. We need, at minimum, one cool headed money grubbing type, one artsy hippie, and one Sid Viscous psycho.

Re: OOC
Well, Paran is calm...

... as a disadvantage, he sometimes gets controlled or carried away by the Fiend entity with whom he has made a pact.

Afterwards he feels miserable and tries to make up for it.

I need to work with the DM how he/she wants to deal with flaws, and how we can make this into a flaw without being too disruptive within a "good" group.


As for backgrounds, I don't know who might want to tie his/hers to mine. Paran comes from a wealthy family fallen onto disgrace.. to top it up he started showing signs of having some weird blood in him that marked him as a tiefling so feeling angry and betrayed, some other warlock saw the opportunity of using him to seal a pact with a fiend. He got into it a bit unknowingly but with the rage, and rebellious nature that he had, it was some time until he noticed the monster he was actually turning into.

He has been fleeing from that life, but the pact still holds, and the Fiend has his dues.

So... in the fleeing part is where I guess it makes most sense. Paran can be from almost anywhere geographically so in that sense he can adapt to anyone's background. His is criminal.


By the way, I went for Fiend for I think it fits his background... the other option I was playing with was the Old Ones... which brings the telepathy into play... I quite like this option too, if we imagine some kind of entity Cthulhu like or something. Its a bit less of punch power, but its not that bad and it may open roleplaying options...

I am not sure what kind of module we are going to play though if its a lot of combat then Fiend might be better....

Re: OOC
It is possible Paran and Lucien are acquainted. I don't know that Lucien will have traveled far from his home city for the beginning of the adventure. Lucien would have been familiar with many local criminals. His background is Charlatan, but I'm interpreting that to say he was a spy for the local lord, who worked the criminal underground. He has since become... disaffected from his work.
