Welcome to the game!

Do you know of any character sheet template we could use on RPOL? I guess I could try to create something myself, but it won't look pretty.

We will choose bonds once the group is finalized. For now, can you handle character creation by yourself?

I'll work on character creation as soon as possible.  As far as character sheets go.   We could do something freeform.  I'll see if there are any Dungeon World Character generators out there.

Just a question, are you going to have the elven fighter move, the human one or do you want to homebrew a special half-elf one?

I'm going to play a straight fighter.  Never mind the previous post.

Hello! Eager to be playing with you all. I am Crow, the bard!



She was the 7th born and 3rd daughter of a middling aristocratic house. They have a large estate that produces partially agriculture and primarily salt from a salt cavern along with the usual income of rent. Their heraldry is a white griffin on a cobalt blue shield and their distinctive feature is a genetic disposition to light hair that goes white in childhood, as though from age.

As she was so far down the line of inheritance she wound up being sent to a convent, as was fashionable to do. She was somewhat educated, when she wasn't getting into trouble for shenanigans, misadventure, and flirting with the other young convent converts. She did take choir seriously and her other indiscretions were largely forgiven as she was found to have an 'angelic' singing voice. Not only is it beautiful, captivating, but the mother superior confirmed that she could sing down divine light to heal wounds. She also showed an interest in history; particularly those to do with heroes and adventurers, fallen kingdoms, places of power, ruins, and so on.

Her ability to work miracles through song brought the convent some amount of fame but it was not fated to last; she became stifled and moody when she felt she was being used. In her more glum moods she could rarely work her song into spells and bad things were sometimes wrought when she was forced to try and failed. The worst was when she attracted the attention of a ghost that took up residence in the belfry.

No one was particularly surprised when she disappeared after coming to adulthood. She took the alias 'Crow', cut her long hair to a short and fashionable men's style, and began to travel. In more conservative steadings she is largely taken for a male, most populations in general being more ready to accept a young, male, playboy with an excess of feminine beauty about the face than they are to accept a short haired, adventurous minstrel woman flirting with their daughters. Her slim, curve lacking body and loose clothing, as well as her smoky voice helps convince them this way, and she typically doesn't correct someone using male pronouns to refer to her.

Somewhere around there it stops being background and there's definitely some need to interact with other characters, get wrapped up in their things.

Following is a list of names and places. She probably isn't open about this but I'm happy for the players to know:

ARVEDANYA aristocratic house.
 parents-
 Tomas (57, m) - owner of the estate- Politician
 Herlie (38, f) - Tomas's current wife, manages the personal estate

 older siblings-
 Solas (35, m) and his wife, Gwyth formerly of house Veneve- Politician
 Ruperne (34, m), confirmed bachelor- Scholar
 Brige (32, f), now Brige Veneve after marriage to Coledo Veneve- Courtier
 Killian (29, m) (just happens to have the same name as the PC Killian) and his wife, Carikin formerly of house Pensey- Advocate (lawyer)
 Eilin (25, f), Priestess
 Artagh (22, m), Sport Hunter (think rich guy with dogs and horses, not rangers)

 Edeling (20, f) - Crow

 younger siblings-
 Boury (16, m)
 Amlaine (13, f)

If you want me to come up with the religion to whose convent she was sent I was actually thinking of something fairly earth-like. a monotheistic belief in a great supernatural being with intercessor angels and saints. I'm not very convinced one way or the other though and if anyone (paladin?) has some other ideas about a regional religion I'm super willing to listen. If not, I can get to brass tacks and make some details.

Interesting backstory. :)

Are you fine with using standsrd Bard Bonds or do you want to come up with your own?
