    Background:

    Show
    As with any legend, Tavok's story started in obscurity, grew in normalcy, and was forged in blood and tragedy. He started as a simple hunter and warrior in his tribe, a wandering clan of savage elves that lived off the land and seldom stayed in any one place for longer than a season. He was fast and earned his place as the lead on many a hunting party to keep the tribe feed and clothed.

    However, a handful of years past adulthood, his tribe was attacked and wiped out by a warband of gnolls while he and his hunting party were away. Returning to the smoking remains of his tribe's camp, Tavok was overcome with rage at the nearly complete destruction of his clan. Gathering the few scattered others, he led a blood feud against the dog-men that started as a series of hit-and-run raids and grew into a crusade against those of a monstrous persuasion. During that time, he learned from the warband wizards a way of raining arcane destruction on his opponents as well as mundane - something that he knew he could blend eventually with his ability as a marksman.

    After bringing justice to his foes, he continues to hunt those that prey on the weaker ... a walking contradiction who uses his own might and magic to destroy those who cannot stand before him. Only time will tell if he can come to terms with his desire for 'justice' and his internal need to move on ...

    Description:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Tavok was a well-built elf with a raw wildness about him. His skin is bronzed from years in the sun and elements, the mark of someone at home outside. His hair is long and shaggy, and usually pulled back in a pony tail to keep it out of his green eyes. He uses a longbow, having become quite accomplished with it, althought he keeps a longblade and hammer handy for close in fighting. In all, he was an imposing figure, but one that commanded attention and was not easily dismissed.

    Personality:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Tavok is a gruff sort, seemingly angry at something or someone. While he has a natural affinity for the world around him, he is not the swiftest blade in the sheath - which means he's about average for most of his kinsmen.

    Amid others, he probably seems a little on the slow side. However, when it comes to his bow, he is a savant.

    Hey guys, sorry about the delay, I've just got my internet working over here in China. On that note, I can't promise how frequent my posting will be given my schedule so please NPC Laz for the good of the group whenever necessary. The internet's a bit unreliable and as of yesterday I won't be speaking English for the next three months, so I'm not sure how often I'll be able to get over to this part of the interwebs. That said though, so glad we're continuing with the group (and welcome new additions! )

    Prices are the standard ones from the PHB, unless you roll well for diplomacy and convince them to lower it...

    For standard items. Just state you're getting them and we'll all be fine. For specialized items, we'll need a bit more posting.

    Laz doesn't have any cash really, but can I suggest we turn half our gold into healing potions? It got pretty tight there at the end.

    Healing is fine but i rather take a proactive approach and hit hard instead of mitigating damage. Sometimes in combat it makes no sense to heal a small amount when doing some damage might stop the fight.
    In this sense, what buffs do you prefer? I was thinking in using enlarge person in arianna and animalistic power in Laz or Tavok. Protection from evil seems a viable option too have in scrolls too.
    Can I scribe scroll and pay the xp as we go?

    Enlarge person is okay for melee, but when Tavok is in archer mode, it won't help him.

    With the gold, either potions, or a MW Spear might be in order. Tavok doesn't need those axes, so feel free to throw them into pool ... he simply paid for them because he thought he was supposed to.

    So with the 4 Pearls she gets 400 gp. Plus the necklace worth 100 gp. Plus the 750 credit for the MW 1/2-plate, plus the 150 gp from before, I think she should have at least 1400 gp in credit with the store. ((I don't recall what Ian paid each of the party, so I'm not counting that.))

    All of the following is dependent upon the DM's approval, of course.

    1400 - 302 for the MW Spear for Tavok.

    1098 - 257 for a Darkwood Shield, for herself.

    841 - 600 for 2 potions of Cure Moderate Wounds.

    Leaving 241 gp. Depending on what she gets for the 3 Throwing Axes, she might buy another potion of CMW.

    Sorry, you misunderstood - I meant to make the spear Eileen bought masterwork. Tavok has about as good of a weapon as he needs right now.

    So, to be clear ... Tavok will leave the axes to the others (24gps worth, I think) and does not need a spear. Thanks anyhow

    As far as healing, I agree that during combat it's a little-suboptimal, I was more thinking for licking our wounds between fights, we can get about 3 times the healing for half the cost by going potions of clw. I do like the sound of that animalistic power though. Laz is somewhat of a glass cannon so some defensive buffs wouldn't be out of place either.
