Put your characters here. Only post background info/stats that other characters would have access to. If you're on a secret mission to find a magical relic of infinitesimal value... don't post that. Razz

Also, here you'll be free to forge ties between characters. Maybe Jhon Doe is Joe Shmoe's uncle's mother's brother's nefew's son. Talk about it here.

Allright, I'll post what I've got thus far...


Jaynus

Jaynus is a farmer is Rosewood, who inherited his farm from his parents. Because of this, he is quite established in the community of Rosewood. He is tall, and brawny. From working in the fields his skin is bronze and his hair bleached. He is a quiet being, who only speaks when he truly needs to, but usually his words are filled with kindness. Although his physical appearance may be daunting, he is truly harmless unless someone else to pose an obvious threat to him.

His skills include knowledge (agriculture) +1, appraise (Crop/Livestock): +1, handle animal +2, and profession (farmer) +2. He is also proficient in using farming tools.

Appraise (crop/livestock) would be closer. Smile
You've got a +1 bonus to STR and CON, and a -1 to WIS or INT. All the skills you listed are at plus one right now. You have 5 additional points to allocate as you choose. You can add +1 to an ability, improve a skill you already have, and learn one skill not directly related to your background with that, or spend them all on improving your skill set. Up to you.

Yup. Improving an ability score costs 3 points, though. So you'll have to spend some on skills, regardless.

Marcus Lestrano
Marcus is a young, educated man from a wealthy family in Censhew. He came to Anturas with his father, an explorer and researcher for Censhew's most prestigious university. After spending a year as his father's apprentice traipsing around the woods near Rosewood and investigating the various types of plants and animals his father was recalled to justify the expense of his research to Queen Janeth Marthas. Marcus stayed behind in the colony as his apprenticeship has ended and he has taken up his own research in the field of his specialty, Alchemical Science. He is a tall, lean man with long blonde hair worn in a ponytail and inquisitive green eyes. He is almost always seen wearing his Alchemists Coat, a long coat that nearly touches the ground and contains many pockets and clips for hanging vials and bottles on. He is known around town as a bit eccentric but generally harmless, spending most of his time either in the woods surrounding the town or in his house. Although he is not the most sociable person he is well known by many of the farmers and wilderness typse of the area, as he spends a lot of time talking to them in order to gain information on the continent's flora and fauna.

His main skills are survival (+1), healing (+1), alchemy (+2), and knowledge (plants) (+1), knowledge (animals) (+1), knowledge (nature) (+1) he is literate and is skilled in the use of the many tools required for his work.

As a 0th level character, you arn't actually proficient with any weapons. You can use them, but you incur the usual -4 penalty. You're still proficient in the use of tools related to your profession though, and some of those can be used as improvised weapons.

Edited. I seperated knowledge (plants) and knowledge (nature) into seperate skills, as well as switching a point from that to gain knowledge (animals), just let me know if that's a problem.

You'll each have 1 gold, 20 silver and, 60 copper pieces (each coin is worth 25 of the previous denomination).
Characters Coins10, trade-goods of indeterminate value (you'll have to see what the market's like to get an accurate estimate), a pack, a bedroll, an all-purpose knife, two days' worth of rations (you'll be dining with the village caravan on the trip), and a few other things you'd like to bring to the market. The village caravan will have carts to carry stuff.

Jaynus has a full harvest, an animal or two, some tools to be repaired, and a nice set of clothes for impressing his lady friend.

Marcus will have herbs, salves, skins, and a small journal containing detailed notes, illustrations, and pressed samples of things you've come across. It's getting full, hence why you're headed to town.

Hydri also is a skilled craftsmen herself, but is also a talented widdler and made her own flute, which she plays by herself in the woods surrounding her Rosewood home.

Hey Kiki, just entertaining the idea, but maybe Hyrdri is the girl Jaynus is interested in? That would be interesting to roleplay, what ya think?

I was also playing with the idea of her and Marcus at least being friends, as they're both wilderness types and her skills would be very helpful for someone who goes out in the woods often and might need special tools smithed.

that could make for interesting roleplay, I must say.

It is possible Marcus and Jaynus know each other too. Perhaps Jaynus is his vegetable proprietor?

I was thinking of that too, Marcus could also learn a lot about the soil and weather from Jaynus, and I'm sure he could offer a farmer advice about anything in the soil that might be harmful to plants or anything he could add to make them grow better.

So given that Kiki agrees to all of that, we are all linked together very interestingly

Wow, um, okay. The idea was that people PM me their character ideas so we can work them out and I can make sure they follow all the rules and the characters fit together and stuff before posting them. So Kiki, I'm gonna PM you in private, m'kay?

I do, however, strongly approve of the character interactions that arose from this. I'd like to see the couple's history once you guys are done.

Also, Kathryn and I finished her character over the weekend and she'll be posting her soon.

Let it be known that I've got no clue with romance stuff, so you're gonna have to roleplay that without my intervention, k? Suspect (you'll still get roleplaying xp, though)
