Aymani looks to be a rather intense sort; can't wait to find out more about her story... and am kind of excited to draw her up.
Per some back and forth between Impulse and myself, we've established a bit of a connection between Karos and Castien, I believe... Very interested to see how this party of ours comes together... and who piggy-backs Bory.
Over the next few days, be looking for PMs from me with important info regarding your backstories! I am really into everything you all are putting together!
And I've added some additional info on some of the Divines, including an alignment disclaimer. More will go up slowl thoughout the day and over the weekend. As always, if you have any questions, drop me a line and we'll talk!
Borborybodboddynock is pretty much finished. If we are posting characters here I will do so once I get a final ok from the Dark Lady. I do have some writing to do still on the backstory, I guess, but everything else is ready to go.
Should anyone wish to create an image of the little rascal, his description is below.
Appearance: 3’(short even for a gnome.About 36 pounds.)
Borborybodboddynock is small even for a gnome and still fairly young at only 39 years old.People who meet him would not be shocked to learn that he is a druid, but neither is it obvious as he does not walk around with sprigs of mistletoe in his hair.His hair is bright orange and flies out in all directions, not because it is unkempt but because that is just what it does.He does comb it and it is not a mass of snarls or tangles, it just isn’t very controllable. When outside it is usually under a wide brimmed hat. His skin is a fairly light brown – he is not naturally overly dark, but has spent a great deal of time outside. He wears leather armor and typically has a shield slung across his back and a scimitar at his waist.His clothing and armor are always of a blend of browns and greens, although he is more than willing to put on a bold splash of color when in town and celebrating.He has a waterdrop shaped amulet around his neck made of oak.Sometimes it is outside his tunic and sometimes inside.In general, he gives off the impression of a common traveler with a big smile and a glint in his eye.He doesn’t try to attract attention, but frequently does anyway.
I was thinking Aymani was originally from Port Sacrifice and the product of a love affair between a married human noble woman and her half-orc bodyguard. When Aymani's mother discovered she was pregnant, she ran off and hid with Aymani's father, had Aymani and together they lived in the shadows of society.
They managed to do so for 15 years. However, when Aymani was 15 years old, her mother was murdered. Aymani's father believes it was an honour killing, perpetrated by his wife's two older brothers.
Soon after, Aymani's father moved the two of them to Watertown. She's spent the last 5 years in Watertown, 3 of them on her own. Her father died while on a mercenary job nearly 3 years ago.
That's her rough backgound. I also toyed with the idea that she has a mentor who is a devotee of the Living Storm.
Nomad - once you've got your character sheet ready, feel free to post it on the Q&A. Also, thanks for the description of Bory... juuuuust about the way I'd imagined him, actually... wasn't sure about the hair color or height but everything else you described is pretty close to what I had pictured. Now that I've got some descriptiors for all four characters, I can get to scribbling! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!
Ayrn - LOVE Aymani more and more. That background is super-spiffy!
Great to have you aboard, Chess! It'll be fun to game with you again! Curious as to what sort of character you'll bring along, of course...
Speaking of characters - I've had the opportunity, this morning, to rough in some sketches of Karos and Aymani (still fiddling with Bory) and, at some point, am likely to drop a PM or two in their players inboxes before I get too far into detail and color... Y'know, just in case my interpretation of the descriptions don't quite jive with what you're thinking and/or for you to simply givve feedback on adds or changes.
...it's not 100% finished (more like 98%) but close enough that I figured it was safe to tack up... Plus, Ayrn's seen it and approves... Aymani's picture has been added to her character sheet in the QA thread.
