Basically, I'm stealing this idea from my cousin who did something similar - a thread containing all of my
unused character ideas. This post will contain an index of sorts for all of my characters, as well as a short description of the character and its preferred system. Each character will also get its own post in this thread (to which the index will link) that gives a fuller
|and potentially used|
profile for the character.
|The profiles will all follow the same format. Character name, preferred system, and race/class (or similar) will each get a line, followed by a description of the character concept. These descriptions won't follow the more usual personality, background, etc. format that most game applications do. Rather, it is a brief description of key aspects of the character's background and personality but with emphasis on what I'd like to do with the character. They will also take a more... laid-back tone than most applications in order to more easily and efficiently convey what I'm trying to say. This will be followed by a "call to adventure" section which gives a few possibilities for how the character could be drawn into the campaign. |
Lastly, I will have a spoiler labeled "Crunch Notes" that will detail whatever mechanically-related concerns I would like to mention, including on notes for converting the character to other systems. This section will include a link to the character's sheet. Characters will be constructed using standard creation rules (or as close to standard as possible, usually in the case of GURPS or similar) that avoid dice as much as possible.
I am probably open to using my characters in any system I have the books for as long as it fits your game. Backgrounds and the like will be made assuming use in the preferred system/setting, but I often reuse favourite character concepts in many settings and so have experience with tweaking backgrounds to fit. A special note on D&D 3.5e and Pathfinder: Pathfinder is my overall preferred system, so it sort of takes precedence over 3.5e. Unless I make a character specifically for one system or the other then I will put "3.5e/PF" for the preferred system, and the background will be written with Golarion in mind, should a non-generalized setting be required.
I know that was a lot of text, and if you read it all (or even just most of it) I sincerely thank you. Anyway, as a final note I'd like to ask for any comments or critiques that may improve my characters. I plan to expand upon each one as I get the chance, perhaps including things like summaries of (and links to) their exploits in various campaigns to sort of create something of a museum of my roleplaying.
Isen Lohceolt - 3.5e/PF - An elf woman raised as an assassin. Rather than "evil," she is better described as simply being "morally vacant." Basically she would be true neutral were it not for a technicality.
Asha - 3.5e/PF - A female (half-)orc paladin. Orphaned as an infant and raised by the church. Part of this is a role-play experiment for myself, since I don't normally do the holy-types, much. I just don't normally find them as interesting, so here's my attempt to make it interesting to myself with the disparity between the public perception of orcs as brutes and the reality of Asha's noble demeanor.
Linnet Habicht -
3.5e - Linnet Habicht is the daughter of an airship captain who was killed, leaving her unable to inherit his ship. She now wants to get a ship of her own (possibly her father's, if available).
Sawyl Mathers - Pathfinder - A
geist oracle whose mouth was sewn shut and was beaten to death due to fear of his prophecies.
