Ongyo-Ki, Goliath Barbarian, Stoneblessed Init +11 HP 123/123 Bloodied 61 Healing Surge 30 (0 used /14) AC 28 Fort 28 Reflex 26 Will 23 Speed 6 Str 23 (+14) Con 22 (+14) Dex 16 (+11) Int 11 (+8) Wis 14 (+10) Cha 14 (+10)
Background: Ongyo-Ki was a valued member of the Black Lord's personal army, always on the front lines during invasion. Maiming and pillaging was second nature to him and he did so with primal finesse. He relished every opportunity to show off his power and fed off the fear his victims felt moments before they died. It wasn't long before the Warrior of Ice came and did battle with him. After going toe-to-toe with the human fighter, Ongyo-Ki acknowledged his strength and did something most unusual. He submitted to the Holy Allegiance and even took up his blade against Akron himself. He was driven by power and the Warrior of Ice had it in spades. How could a human's physical prowess match a demons? How could he obtain such strength?
Many years passed since the end of the dark war and Ongyo-Ki lived a life of solitude in the human world, branded a traitor by those of the demonic realm. As black clouds loomed over the skies, Ongyo-ki took that as an ill omen of Akron's return. Taking up his blade once again, he was determined to find the answer to the very questions that plagued him.
Appearance: Will link to a picture after I've made 5 posts...
Personality: Ongyo-Ki does not speak often. His colossal size and appearance does little to mask the scary pitch of his voice, normally causing humans to run away before the words escape his lips. When he does speak, he is cold and harsh, often getting to the point immediately. What he cannot convey through speech, he does so through intimidation and feats of strength.
The player: I'm currently DM'ing my own 4e game and have played in a couple others, both PnP and PbP. I like the roleplaying aspect but as an avid fan of SRPG's I'm more drawn to 4e's tactical combat system. I'm looking for a campaign that will last a while, so I can watch my character grow but I'm still ok if this is a one-shot, one-level affair so long as there's some fun to be had.
I'm not quite sure how to answer "what I'd bring to the campaign" without coming off as pretentious or sounding like some cheesy high school class president notecard speech. I'm not even all that sexy so I can't even use that to my advantage here.
Well, to avoid cliche and get to the point. Blah blah won't drop out, blah blah will make things more interesting, blah blah will show a little leg if necessary blah blah so you should pick me (^_^)/`[/quote]
In a nutshell, Ongyo-Ki fought alongside the Warrior of Ice after being bested by him in combat and defeated Akron in the name of the Holy Allegiance. I've never read the books but if you would allow it, I would like for Ongyo-Ki's name to be recognized and almost synonymous with the Warrior of Ice as one who turned away from darkness and embraced the light. If that's not plausible, then only the Holy Allegiance would know of his help and they would have put in a good word for him to the King after the war which is why he would be entrusted with the task of defeating Akron once more. The King probably would not have taken kindly to Ongyo-Ki due to him being a demon but I feel like the word of the Holy Allegiance and the Warrior of Ice would be more than enough to sway his mind.

Lvl 12 Badge of the Berserker
Lvl 12 Jagged Weapon (Glaive)

Lvl 7 Boots of the Fencing Master
Lvl 10 Strikebacks
Lvl 8 Belt of Lucky Strikes
Background: Gerald was a barber's apprentice in Laram, a small but prosperous city in Elgard, when it all began.
Appearance: Gerald is precisely six feet (he sometimes wonders if measuring rods alter themselves to match him; he has seen rods he would swear were half a foot uneven each way measure him perfectly) and roughly 190 lbs (to his dissatisfaction, this measurement is never as precise as the other). He used to have a short, clipped beard; in recent years this has grown into a fuller, bushier creature that inhabits his face. After all, who shaves the barber once his coworkers are dead?
He is a sturdy, thick-built man - for a half-elf. For a human, he'd be about average, if you didn't look at his ears. He has a long scar down his left thigh, and his brown hair has black highlights in it. His face used to be in a perpetual grin - nowadays, when he does grin, it is more manic than anything else, and his default expression is more like a scowl.
In short, he looks rather like this:
Personality: Although no longer the happy-go-lucky barber's apprentice of his youth, Gerald still enjoys life. He may enjoy it by sticking skewers into those he considers evil, but it is enjoyment nonetheless. He has a fondness for badgers, with whose fur he has lined his jacket and hood. He is easy to get along with, as long as the party in question does nothing to suggest a preference for evil over good. In this context, it would probably be helpful to him if he understood sarcasm rather better than he does, but he is slowly learning. He is bluff and candid - for a half-elf - and only touchy about evil and his ability to destroy it.
Player: I have been playing D&D 4e heavily for the past two+ years, and recently finished DMing my first campaign. I also have a fair amount of experience with other d20 system RPGs and some non-d20 as well; in a normal week I play at least two sessions of some RPG, at least one of which is 4e. I am fairly new to Myth Weavers, but very good at keeping up with online bulletin boards (from years of experience), and I would expect to post at least once a day.
I am expecting from the game a good sense of narrative and world-immersion: given the level of detail you've given and the fact that you are loosely basing on published material (and therefore are not required to improvise as much if we wander slightly from your initial intent), I would hope to be in a campaign where I get the impression there is a world outside of the individual encounters in which the characters engage, a world affected by those encounters but not merely scaffolding for them. I would bring to this a healthy imagination, a willingness to engage with that world, and a strong belief in role-playing (besides my RPG experience, I'm also an actor).
Appearance: Born to nobility, Tristam has a taste for the finer things in life. A handsome young man by any standard, he tends to dress in fine garb although often with his own unkempt roguish style thrown in. Short by human standards, his facials features tend to be more fey (from his mother) although he often looks to be in a bad need of a shave. Overall he gives off the impression of a nobleman who has been partying too hard for several days straight rather than that of a champion of the people.
