Willing to take two more to make a maximum of eight characters.

Current ApplicantsWIP denotes missing sections or listed as such. Others have all sections though feel free to continue to edit or add to them. I'll review them fully each time I choose players/characters

Rathdyn Olmsa - Stout Protector (Gingerbread)

Please let me know if you have added a character and don't see it added to this list within a few days.

Note: This game is taking rolling acceptance. We plan to accept no more than four players by the end of the first week (21st October) and then up to four more before the ad closes. We've decided to accept up to eight players for this game as that should provide more interaction whilst still being manageable.





Game Description:

The small village of Heawold is neither big nor special in any particular way. Whilst not prosperous the halflings who call it home are a generally very content lot. They live their lives busy producing fine wine and food that they enjoy as often as possible and occasionally trade to the dwarves of Nuledzar and the Goblins of Gorbul Town.

The dale they live in is quite safely tucked in between the Mountains to the North and West where little bar dwarves and the occasional grumpy giant live, the crowded trees of Ewnham forest to the East - the domain of Goblins but the have been peaceful for many years, and the cold broken tundra and forests to the south where very little bar tall and ancient trees grow and only the occasional bear roams.

However last night the village was raided. Sengo the sentry was struck from behind and sent tumbling out of his watch tower. The two nurseries-schools were entered and some sort of drugged rag was used on the inhabitants whilst they slept to keep them that way. All of the children around the ages of seven to fifteen and two of the nurses were taken.

Only those children whose turn it was to stay with their parents and those few in the small hospital remained safe.

A small party of villagers sets off to find and return the missing children and the two nurses. None has any illusions about the world outside the village being anything other than scary, unfriendly and outright dangerous. The furthest any of the villagers has been is to the dwarven city of Nuledzarís outer gate or to the edge of the Ewnham forest to trade.

It creates an interesting character dynamic - the irresponsible kid goes along for the adventure, but will they mature during the experience and come to care about the people involved? Or will they stay irresponsible and cause mayhem?
How will your character convince the others that they want to have him along?

I look forward to seeing how some of this plays out when the game starts Don't give away any neat ideas you get now though, it will spoil the surprise!

Well, I already have some neat ideas how to convince them to let him join.

Just wondering: Will it really stay open until the 5th of november, or might it close early?

Already answered.

Only Rum, with his "compulsive obsession" with small farm animals would know about those ...

Oh ... laughing out loud in the office is not recommended

The new james looks like he's going to attract all sorts of trouble and may quite possibly go mad.

Doh, I went Fighter as I thought everyone else was going Cleric / Rogue / Arcane Caster and that they'd need some uber tough *cough* fighter to protect them (even went with Protector - Guardian build) ... maybe other Fighters are Slayers / Dual wielders ??

I'm happy to change to another class, Hiccup's background can remain the same ...
