This thread is for discussing things publicly out of character. If this thread gets overly busy I will make an announcement thread for people to post important stuff. This will avoid important things getting lost in the a wave of chatty people going back and forth. I want everyone to have the ability to talk and be friends, but I don't want important things slipping through the cracks. I don't imagine it will be an issue day one, but if anyone is having trouble keeping up with this thread, tell me and I will make the other one. If something is directed at me and I don't seem to answer after having checked in or replied to something. Feel free to fire a PM at me to draw my attention to it. I don't generally try to ignore people, so I likely missed it.

Hello all!
Your over-confident would-be duelist here.
Looking forward to playing with you all.

I have only a general idea what Silanar will be, so I'm open to any suggestions gor character connections. I'll also see what our town currently has and build from there.

Hey!

I'll be playing a Philosopher*! Which is pretty much a know-it-all magic class.

Val's family has been a staple in the <INSERT TOWN NAME HERE> community for a long time. The Brightseekers pretty much have cornered the market in knowledge and have opened a school to educate the masses. You all might know Val or one of his family members, as you likely got some of your education from the Brightseeker's school.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and I intend on taking the Noble background as a means for his family to have that pseudo-place of authority tacked on to it. The way I saw it, the Brightseekers being a family of scholars, they probably have worked as advisors to the leader of the town and that garnered them some social standing.

Hi there. Playing a barbarian girl from a tribe that moved close to <INSERT TOWN NAME HERE> recently. My initial idea is that she's drawn away from her tribe and into the community for love, so if anyone wants a brawny barbarian girlfriend, we can go from there.

I know we're all participating in world building and backgrounds, so happy to adjust mine or have the tribe used as a plot device in someone else's background. Let's call them the.. .I don't know, Windtalker tribe?

I see the link to philosopher (wow! Someone put a lot of effort into that. Was that you Val?). What's a duellist? All I know from duellist is a fighting style...

Just that, Fighter with dueling style into Battle-master focusing on solo maneuvers.

Silanar will definitely be interested in facing Valica. As for girlfriend, we can see how that might work (or did already).

Sil's mother is a half-elf and she raised him in an elven village X, but he didn't find it to his liking (being an only human etc.), so he moved here, where is father is a Y. Writing in a hurry, so can't work on details now.

And indeed, Philosopher looks very interesting! Nice find.

Hi all, I'll be playing your local friendly tempest cleric who probably sticks out a bit in a crowd. Their family is a bunch of pearl and abalone divers so it's possible that your character has purchased something from them. If the town is on the coast Gale has lived there for their entire life, otherwise there a frequent visitor in the off season selling pearl and abalone products (pearls, dried abalone, abalone shell jewellery, etc) or perhaps making a special delivery for Val's family.

I'll probably build them with a sailor background since d&d weirdly doesn't have an official farmer background.

Hi all, Will be playing a goliath Bloodhunter. Has been here whereever here is for a couple of years now, origanialy from the mountain heights and snow. Taken in by several Dwarven brewers when they found him alone in the snow.

Will be taking the Order of the Mutant to reflect this mastery of dwarven brews and other elixers.

Open for any connections with others, If i am correct Goliath are half human half giant, if so he would not be intimidated by Valica size and strength of will.

Might even be interested in relationship with Valica.

Val could of been a Tutor for Khaaven when he first came to the area, teaching him the basic knowledge and skills needed.

"Hello!  Friendly neighborhood Paladin here!"  ::waves brightly::

Celeste was born and raised in the town, so any and all townsfolk will know that Celeste is not as human as she appears.  All it takes is looking at her a different times of the year to see this fact.  Still working on fleshing out her description but I have the bare bones in there now.

Howdy everyone. Sorry for my silence I have been working through the RTJs. Given the number of applicants, there will be two groups that I will merge if we suffer enough player attrition. It has been an issue in other games and I can run both groups if needed, so I don't feel bad setting it up this way. I have some others who might be added soon, but you all can feel free to start discussing who might want to team up with whom along with the other things. This also means that if for whatever reason, two people have vastly different ideas of what their home should be, they can be from two different places as long as they aren't on the same team.

There were people who wanted to discuss things with me. Feel free to do that. I am currently helping people build characters and work things out for them. I will try to stay abreast of this thread as well, so you can PM me or discuss them publicly here. From what I recall, most of the stuff was world building stuff that can be done with the others as well, but if you need me feel free to say as such. I will try to get editable character sheets opened for everyone here shortly as well. I would just like to welcome everyone and apologize not posting sooner and not making them available sooner.

Khaaven: Goliath might be a bit much in a lover, even for a strapping barbarian lass!

Celeste: What race are you, out of curiosity? Guessing Aasimar? Maybe? Lol you're taller than ... the big strapping barbarian lass!

DM: Any issues with using one of the UA "feats for skills"? Otherwise I'm pretty vanilla variant human barbarian. The feat in particular

quote:
Brawny
Unearthed Arcana 17 April 2017

You become stronger, gaining the following benefits:

Increase your Strength score by 1, to a maximum of 20.
You gain proficiency in the Athletics skill. If you are already proficient in the skill, you add double your proficiency bonus to checks you make with it.
You count as if you were one size larger for the purpose of determining your carrying capacity

I like the feat for you, Makes a goliath much more plausible with it as a compatible partner.

Lol, sweet talker!

Still, you are literally a race of stone! That's going to make for some uncomfortable cuddling!

Ravrok, we might know each other if you like the dwarves which took me in could be related to you in some way. If so we might have sparred and trained in martial skills as well as drinking together.


I am also thinking about two feats for the future, Fell handed and exalted could make for an interesting combination and mix for this bloodhunter.

More of mix Human and stone giant so not that bad. Not to mention almost need to be my size to hold my own with you. Cuddleing could be fun, Like two cave bears.

Both natural athlete and increased carrying capacity if you get the feat. What loot we could carry out together.

Got it in one!  :D I'm going to go with the Oath of the Ancient eventually so that's why I'm going with more of a nature bend to her aasimar physical heritage.

She follows Chauntea so all I need for the starting town is a farming community.

Re: OOC
I thought I had. Do me a favor and double check. I added a sheet there while I was at it, but you do not have to use that sheet if you don't want to. It was just something to make sure I was actually updating it when I did it.
