Re: OOC
So Mis'sha after reading your intro thing and looking at the Scholar class (I assume that's you) I've decided I need us to be best friends when we meet in game lol. Like Bruce Banner and Tony Stark; one's all technology and weapons, the other is general science, and they're smart bros. We can be smart sisters.

Re: OOC
No, it's a class. Look at the allowed material thread.

Do your research.   =P

Re: OOC
Hey Karlia, thought of a shared background to link with your idea. We could know one another indeed as the learned people (the rest are plebs, know your place plebs). But I envision Mis'sha totting around a huge, exotic looking heavy crossbow (or maybe a steambow? Woo!). Perhaps our initial meeting is from when Mis'sha procured said hunk of crossbow from you?

Re: OOC
Grail is either a Noble or a Charlatain pretending to be such.  If the gambling house isn't your style perhaps you could be one of his entourage or retinue?  He's learned a few tricks from a Druid of the Wyld Woods by the name of Orrin Bloodfern.  So if there are any Druids or rangers in the party we could at least be familiar with one another through a shared friend.

Kids. kids calm down. I can't leave you unattended for a few hours... Apologize and say you are sorry. And in the future don't instigate anything. Treat each oher with respect.

Re: OOC
Mis'sha:
I commend you Luther for your excellent reading. I finished the First Law trilogy somewhere earlier this year and thoroughly enjoyed it. Logen Nine-Fingers was an interesting character, although by the end I rather had seen they explored his condition instead of giving him the end he got. Oh well. But my favorite character is Sand dan Glokta by far. His caustic wit burrowed a red hot poker to my heart, ahh yes.

I was wondering if anyone would recognize the reference!  Abercrombie is one of my favorite authors.  You should check out the other standalone novels in the same setting and his recent short story collection.  Not going to spoil anything, but there's some more Ninefingers amongst those if you weren't satisfied with his run in the First Law :)

Since posting last night I'm thinking that Luther will have taken on a peaceful occupation to try to keep himself away from conflict forever so the Cackler doesn't show up again.  He could be a librarian or some sort of menial scribe (he is literate, oddly enough for a barbarian!), which could be a connection for the smartypantses.  His dream of a quiet retirement isn't going to work out though, now that the world is dying.  Now he's going to need to bring his inner demon back just to survive!

Re: OOC
Ok, let me tell you something in general, and I promise this is the last I will say in my angry mom voice. For the love of, stop overinvesting on Constitution, all of you are on steroids as it is with empowered short rests, feats and do anything with your stats. Just because you can, doesn't mean that you should.

Ok, that is it. I have a couple more RTJs, but need to figure out some stuff. I might have to divide you into two parties.

Oooohhh, That would be pretty cool actually; an eccentric or complicated crossbow would be right up Karliah's research alley actually, so something she definitely could have helped with.

That big ol' cart looks a bit lonely. Karliah has likely been travelling between research and trying to usurp the higher powers. *cough* lol

Re: OOC
Errr, I haven't picked my stats yet, but I'll have to apologize in advance because Luther should have a high Con score :|  I think I could maaaaybe get a pass since Con is a big stat for my class, and my character concept is mostly about being an unstoppable killing machine and all that jazz!

[Private to GM: I don't mean to be presumptuous by offering you GMing advice, but if a player of mine gave me a character sheet with a 16-18 Con for their scholarly casters or Dexy ranged type characters I'd veto that real quick :P  You wrote in the character creation thread that we ought to pick scores appropriate to our character concepts, so I think you're justified in reigning that in a bit.  18 Con is for the likes of Hercules or Leo DiCaprio in the Revenant, haha]

I just picked the Con score I did because the abilities of my class drain my health.

Well if you're a barbarian then that certainly is true; CON is one of your top scores.

I dropped my CON score a bit, and I'm thinking about switching it to make my WIS higher.

Re: OOC
Mine is 99% done as well. Just a little clarification on religion, so the stats are done and really for approval.

Don't forget to put up some nice descriptions guys! We all love to know who we're working with! :) Just talk a bit about appearance, apparent mannerism, visible gear, and so on and before you know it you have a neat little write-up.

Re: OOC
Hi all!  I'm still getting all my character stuff entered and set up, but thought I'd drop in to say hey. :-)

Qisstralya is a Yaran Phobia, and scientist at heart ("scientist" here defined as "someone who loves to learn"); she's likely 16 or 17, and quite passionate about going out into the world and figuring out what the source of its current decent into decay is...and trying to figure out how to fix it.

She's also a sorceress, and a Mystic one, at that; her innate magics have...guided her onto a path that hopefully leads toward the healing of the world.  She also really enjoys sleeping and lounging in trees, and can often be found traveling through the upper canopy of whichever forest or jungle she finds herself in.

She doesn't mind sleeping outside without any protection from nature (it's certainly not unusual to find her basking in the heat of a sun-warmed stone), but she does make sure that some form of protection is set which will alert and awaken her to danger.  She tries not to be aloof, but sometimes its hard for her to pay attention to what people are talking about - especially if she has some puzzle to solve or has noticed something new or unusual.

Also, she does have an animal companion - a smaller coral snake - with whom she often carries on...odd...conversations which consist primarily of hisses and tongue flicks.  It seems less like a pet, and more like a favored companion/friend.  When she's interacting with it is when she seems the most...emotional and attentive (to a conversational partner).

I believe Mis'sha and I are going to have to figure out some background stuff, which I am eager to do. :-)

[Private to The echo of the past: Is it permissible to use the Dragonmark Feat out of the UA: Eberron 1.1 update? http://dnd.wizards.com/article...rthed-arcana-eberron if you need the document :-)
If so, which marks are allowed or encouraged? Finding, Hospitality, Passage, and Scribing are the ones that seem most appropriate for Qisstralya.
