Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
Am willing to create backstory with other characters if you can think of a way and want one with my guy.

What I am thinking of so far is, at the age of 6 until about 9 was a gleaner. A child who would search the battlefields for anything of value to survive. Once I found a wounded nobleman whom I helped to save, he in turned took me as a ward of his House. I received more training etc becoming a soldier/ loyal guard. Currently he will be 18-20 years old with some time in service as i was apprenticed etc. Thinking was officially in the service at the age of 17 so between 1-3 years of duty already.

Anyone see anything wrong with that concept for the timeframe and the game. Also if anyone can see of a connection with me which we can use to start with.

 Well, I am going to play a gentleman with ties to the government. Perhaps a Bureaucrat.

Anyone have a character sheet I can add to my sheet area and start to fill out. This guy is looking good seems to have lots of potential.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
Thanks I changed it back now then. Got my gut done just need to get a sheet and start to fill it out. Am really looking forward to playing with everyone.
I can see lots of potential to grow this character, just need to make sure I don't overlap to much with other characters builds so that we can all shine. I will want to eventually retire and start a civilian career tree.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
In the character creation thread there is a link to a form villa le PDF character sheet.  Use that, then in place of the character sheet link a readable resolution screen shot of the sheet.  You can change the image as changes are made to the sheet.  For an example of what I mean, look at the NPC I rolled up, De Soucy (should I ever get to play, my character.)

If you own the books Iíll trust you to calculate skill points, HP and encumbrance on your own.  And of course, not to read the adventures (though I will make some changes)

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
Well Marsuvees' character sheet is what I'm looking for, you're good.  I didn't realize you can't see each others' sheets, only the description.

In which case, I'll ask each of you to put something in the description that tells who you are: your background (Rogue, Gentlemen, Nobleman, Soldier), any titles you may have, including military rank, Social class number, the height and weight descriptors, hair and eye color, distinctive features, and anything that an acquaintance would know about you.

If you want to link in a picture from another source besides the icon you can add that as well.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
Ah. Gotcha. I can drop the CS into the character details so they can see it.  Iíll add that stuff into the description.

Also, are we musketeers or just a loose association of swashbucklers about to have an adventure?

You do not have to know each other yet, though I encourage linkages among you.  You will become a loose association of swashbucklers, who will hopefully become fast friends, and who knows?

We will be based in Paris, though you don't need to be Parisian.  If you don't own a house (via the Land Advantage) then you can rent a room in a townhouse (as D'Artagnan did in the book) or find some other arrangements.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
Unless one of you guys had a very shady past, we probably donít know each other. Heís probably below all of your standings In Society so your paths may not have crossed in a way that youíd remember and like each other.

Marsuvees will take up a rented room and be new to Paris.

My current home? I'm quartered in some unwilling merchant's townhouse.

I cant open up that character sheet. If anyone can post a sheet that I  can copy and paste into the sheet area here it would be much appreciated. I will be sending several PM's later for some  backstory ideas.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
might be my reader software too. Also your npc ist readable. He is now but no sheet on him.

Plan on making backstories with at least two of you guys later if I can work out a good concept we can agreee on

 Well, Alexandre is the son of a Physician, that has a connection to a minor noble, that the father saved the life of. In gratitude, the noble wrote a letter of recommendation to a fiend of his, in the Ministry of War for an appointment within that ministry. ( goofer, errand boy,etc. But it is a foot in the door,as it where.

 Ahhh, Prince de Conde's boys. He thought that regiment was his personal body guard. Think of a French version of Prince Rupert of the Rhine, and you are close.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
Luc, what rank are you by chance in the black musketeers, You start as a sergeant for free did you buy any extra. I am one rank Higher as a Subaltern the lowest rank of Officer but we could serve together in the same unit if you like. I am only 18 years old with not much experience but lots of talent and potential if you will. I was brought up from the ranks, so thinking we could of been sergeants together or at least at the same time.

Re: The Boar's Head Tavern (OOC)
didn't buy rank to start, for an advantage he rolled up filthy rich, didn't want to overplay that or exploit it outright. if luc stays with the musketeers he may see about ranking up a bit. he is still just a sergeant and kind of a known hothead. thought i'd see how it plays out for a while.
