    Default Varisian Multi-game: RotRL

    Hello all! It's time to go goblin/ghoul/ogre/giant/sin monsters/a very powerful wizard hunting. All of you should post characters for this game along with colours and any other info you think is important. I hope for longevity in this game so lets see if we can kill these monsters or shall we leave Varisia to the mercy of them?

    Here is the IC.

    Kaseem's character sheet

    Description
    Spoiler
    Show

    Kaseem is a 19 year old Kelishiet man who dresses in the most expensive clothes he can get and takes the pride in his appearance that only a noble would. His has dark hair and eyes with an olive complexion and a face which is in almost a scowl. Although he isn't physically imposing, his mannerisms serve to make him look as tough and imposing as possible; a habit picked from living 2 years in a den for ne'er-do-wells. He carries 2 short swords and a crossbow openly. His weaponry, clothing, and chosen hangouts could make others easily mistake him as one of the wealthier or more flamboyantly dressed privateers or perhaps just another wealthy, foreign adventurer. He comes from a settlement called Kaer Maga and was working in the weapons trade, but hopes to become an adventurer and wander Varisia for now.



    Backstory

    Spoiler
    Show
    Kaseem was born into a powerful Kelish merchant family with good looks and a keen intellect. Having little interest in the affairs of local merchants however, Kaseem became engrossed in various academic and artistic pursuits. Considered somewhat of a prodigy by the age of 14, he managed to attend a somewhat prestigious bardic college. While he did well in his studies, he never felt that those in charge fully appreciated his abilities and grew resentful of their authority. He figured as long as he kept with this path one day he would work for one of the courts possibly as an entertainer for monarchs or an emissary to other nations, which were fine positions, so he tempered his resentment.
    Kaseem was forced to leave his academy prematurely following the mysterious disappearance of his teacher, who was rumored to have been involved in some strange business outside the organization. His merchant family decided to send him to be with a distant relative in Varisia around the age of 17. He was to help out his cousin in Kaer Maga, who made a living by selling weapons.
    Kaseem was enthralled by Kaer Maga the minute he laid eyes on the city, having spent most of his life in a bardic academy with only wealthy Kele****es for company. The city’s anarchic nature brought about a great change in him in just 2 years. Daily life in the city could occasionally be violent with the rampant gangs, strange cults and deranged wizards.
    While Kaseem made few friends, due to the arrogant way he carried himself and his clannish mentality, he eventually managed to deal with living in a land with seemingly few rules. His cousin helped him refine his fighting technique and he learned to prepare himself for any eventuality. Eventually he felt that it would have been best to leave the city out of a combination of wanderlust and fear due to a feeling that he may have stepped on the toes of some of the wrong people. He started to wander Varisia, hoping to become an adventurer.
    Kaseem is a dusky skinned, broad-shouldered nineteen year old with dark hair and eyes who dresses himself in expensive looking clothing. He usually openly carries a wide variety of different weapons and camping equipment. The young Keli****e man seems to dissect people with his eyes when he first meets them and acts in a detached manner to the groups he looks down upon to prevent conflict.


    As for the color, I'm thinking this one.

    Maximiliana Leroung-Zenderholm, Void Wizard

    Lady Maximiliana is a minor noble from Korvosa, descended from a marriage between the Leroung and Zenderholm houses. Showing an aptitude for scholarship at an early age, her father paid her way into the prestigious (and also dangerous) Acadamae in the city. During this time, her elder sister had given birth to a son. Maximiliana didn't have time to enjoy being an aunt, as the child disappeared in the markets one day and despite the best efforts of the Korvosan Guard, had not been seen since. Unlike many other noble scions who used their status for connections and barely paid attention to their studies, Maximiliana dove into them headlong, fascinated with the history of her city and Varisia in general.

    Her studies led her to become obsessed with the ancient empire of Thassilon and the Runelords that governed it. She even began actively courting some of the sins they venerated as virtues, gaining a reputation as having great appetites, yet somehow maintaining her drive and passion for the secrets of the past. It was during this time she pursued an affair with a handsome young alchemy student, more playing the scandal to gain attention than out of any genuine affection. Despite this, she genuinely felt bad when her lover was cast from the Acadamae for the affair, and ran away to Riddleport to escape her parents' wrath. After her graduation, she decided not to marry to secure her family's bonds to the other noble houses, but rather to travel and study Thassilon in earnest.

    She declined to travel to the lawless and brutish Riddleport after her former lover, opting instead to visit Magnimar, Korvosa's main rival. While there, she gained the attention of the Heidmarch family, who had set up the first Pathfinder Lodge in Varisia. Eager to gain access to the Society's resources, Maximiliana quickly applied to become a Pathfinder herself. She decided a sure-fire way to gain admittance was to perform a personal dig, and the closest and most convenient place was the small town of Sandpoint.

    Maximiliana has lived in Sandpoint for a few months now, coordinating her research with local expert Brodert Quint as well as the other scholarly inclined people in the town. During her stay she became fascinated with the House of Blue Stones and the ways of Irori, keeper of Golarion's history. Her passion for sinning having somewhat dimmed since the debacle at the Acadamae, she finds the notion of learning from the past to perfect the present comforting, and is working towards more moderation in her life. She's also begun drawing on Tien and Vudran mysticism and the concept of the Void to channel her magic, eschewing the traditional schools she studied in the Acadamae.

    Maximiliana will use Purple for her voice.

    char sheet

    cindermane's char sheet

    back story
    Spoiler
    Show
    Ogo, who would become known as Dreadhoof, was born when his father, Chorgin Ripmaw, a warchief of the Hold of Belkzen, sired 3 sons on 3 human slaves. As the son of a warchief he was given a place of power few half-orcs were afforded. He grew up strong and proud shorter than a true orc but well muscled and quick like a predator, truly his fathers son, cocksure and confident. He had a great affinity for animals, and reveled in training them so that they might be better than they were, but on the day he met his first horse he knew that all else he had done was merely the folly of children. He was given a foul, which he named Cindermane, for its black hair streaked with red and orange. from Cindermane's back Ogo saw and did many things, he saw his first non orc village, he took part in his first battle, and he lead his first command from his back. On that day Ogo was given 10 Orcs and told to raid a village in the cinderlands, when they had cited the village and Ogo began to give orders, but the Orcs under his command had other ideas. "The Ripmaw is dead, and there'll be no more orders from runty half breeds like you..." said one of the orcs, the others howling with laughter and approval, a terrible gleam in their eyes. Ogo would have stand and fought if he had not been out numbered 10 to 1, so he put his heels to Cindermane's flanks and fled, cursing himself as a craven coward, though i live one at that. He threw himself into taverns and bars, drinking away most of the gold he had, when his gold ran out he found work here and there, running messages, or as a hired thug, though his heart was never in it, he was only truly alive when he was riding. Living a life he never new, in a place he had only thought of as a source of plunder and slaves, his is at times shiftless and depressed, angry that he can never go home, now he yearns for something new, for battle and danger, and as he and Cindermane plod into Sandpoint, he hopes that prehaps this town will be different, that he might find some adventure! After making sure Cindermane is taken care of, Ogo strides into an Inn, orders some beer and asks for work or tales of adventure.

    Sorry if that's a bit strong for an opening.

    Still, Maximiliana mentioned two of the subjects A'Shanna is most passionate about, the Varisian people and Desna, while simultaneous being a rich person. Ash generally doesn't like moneyed individuals and believes they are largely to blame for the death of her ancestral way of life.

    Beowulf and Cromwell, sorry if that seemed curt towards your characters. I just figured that Halfast might prove somewhat... suspicious towards "greenskins". Blame it on being a dwarf and essentially having just left home. Just let me know if you think I go too far with that prejudice, and I'll tone it down.

    'Tis cool, Maximiliana's arrogant and dismissive of most things outside the realm of Thassilonian research anyway.

    Plus, she's from Korvosa, and there's strong anti-Varisian prejudice there anyway.

    NO. STOP. Wherefore means "why," not where. Juliet is rhetorically asking why Romeo has to be a Montague, a member of the family hers is feuding with, and pondering his identity and hers in the context of their newly discovered romance. Actually READ the damn play before you quote it!

    Just joking, of course, I know practically all people make that mistake when quoting the balcony scene, but as an English BA and Shakespeare fan I'm contractually obligated to whine when it happens.
