Whispers description is up, sans history - which is waiting GM feedback.

Also, welcome Braddoch!

Howdy, all! Excited to get this started.

Braddoch is 4th generation, so has big shoes to fill, at least as far as his clan is concerned. He's a half-elf ranger, think I'm going to tailor him as an archer.

Before I get ahead of myself, I'll rein in my plans for archetypes and such, until the appropriate time, but I'm thinking the Hunter build checks off the most boxes for me. I did look at the Gloom Walker build from Xanathar's guide, but that seems better suited to melee.

Working on my character build. Should have most of it done this weekend, but not really hurrying. Just enjoy the mechanics of building characters.

My Rogue's also getting tailored as an archer. Shouldn't be an issue, though, you'll have longer range than her and hopefully we'll have plenty of meat shields fellow adventurers to put between us and the enemy! Whisper will have some melee skill as well, but prefers to hide and snipe from range.

I'm about a third of the way done. Will continue to work on this through the weekend. Should be done by Sunday evening.

FYI.

I like the artwork.

I have to admit, I'm torn now. Wonder if dual wielding would provide greater synergy. If that's the case, I'll have to shuffle my abilities, which is no big deal...just kinda wanted to be an archery ranger.

Thank you, I can take no credit for it, my Google-Fu was strong.

I think you're safe being an archer. I can't imagine we'll be the only two characters in the game, and chances are at least one or two players will go with melee-based characters. EDIT: And, as a Ranger, you'll be longer ranged and likely better at archery than the Rogue, I'll just have a slightly higher damage due to the Sneak Attack. No reason we can't both go this route.

FWIW, I'm sorry I didn't get my description and bio up soon enough to let you know what path I was taking for the Rogue.

Oh, wow - no apologies necessary at all. We're in this together, and I still have time to change my mind, so. Think of it this way, two archers from different flanks laying down rounds of arrows - bad guys won't know what hit them.

Sweet! Tavern scene!! :D

Do we have any other applicants? I figured most everyone from the other game would move over ...

Not a whole lot, I wasn't able to set up the game as fast as I would have liked. So far we are at five, two from your game, two from a previous game, and one is quick on the draw :D. If we get some more, I wouldn't mind running multiple groups.

We have a rouge, ranger, two fighters and a unknown.

Rogue. ;)

And 5 is a pretty good sized group, IMO.

Arbiter:

I chose my favored enemy - undead.

Also went with Coastal as my natural environment, but wasn't really sure if that was appropriate to this campaign. Would forest or plains be a better choice given the adventure (for the record, I never played Saltmarsh, even when I was playing 1st edition. I'm looking forward to it.

Saltmarsh is a coastal city, so that would be applicable, however there are also forests and plains nearby (IIRC), so I think any of the choices would be fine. If Whisper were a Ranger, I think I'd have her choose coastal, since she grew up in town. If you're outside of town, more inland, then forest or plains would be appropriate.

From what I recall of the book, I think the adventures cover most of the surrounding areas.

I'll stick with coastal, then. It's not a gamebreaker, and either way, the dice will determine our fates.

Is there a tavern somewhere between Saltmarsh and Burle where a weary young ranger can grab a drink without too much discomfort?

Oh, very cool. Should be a handful for the bad guys.
