    Default Airmid's ritual

    Airmid probably went through the ritual before her official training had begun.
    10 years old, with a bright blue tag sewn into her hair ribbons, since then she just kept it that way.

    Default Zetaya and her quirks

    When everyone first meets Zetaya she is pretty quiet and and tends to keep to herself and Clarity. After a while, give it a week or two (maybe a month), you'll see her warm up to the rest of the group (Airmid and Hyensum). She won't particularly like your specter Hyensum so it'll take her longer to get used to her and her antics. She is very quiet, calm, collected, and constantly has a nice warm smile (Very much like Yuna from FFX). That doesn't mean that she doesn't show other emotions. You'd notice in battle that she gets really focused; if an enemy gets a good hit on her or she is getting tired of a battle (i.e. it's taking too long or something just won't die) she will instantly start raging (causing the ends of her braids to explode into flame). The only time she starts raging at the beginning of battle is when battling vermin swarms because she hates them with a fury of a thousand suns (hehehe). Lastly, every Friday night if they are in a town she'll go to a tavern and just get wasted, it's her own ritual.

    When asked about her past, you see her expression grows a little sad and cold (although she tries really hard not to show it). She will reply "I got verified when I was 7, I trained until about 2 years ago, my teacher died 2 years ago so I left and now I'm roaming around adventuring. That's all there is to say really." If you keep pushing the topic on her she will start getting defensive and after a while she'll grow angry and yell "I ALREADY TOLD YOU MY STORY! QUIT ASKING!" Causing her to storm off away from the group so she can re-collect herself. Also even when wasted she doesn't reveal more about her past, if anything you just hear one word muttered constantly "Dellisar".

    Hope this helps everyone get to understand Zetaya a bit better. Any questions please ask, either here or text.

    Edit: Her blue tag is sewn into her headband and is in the middle of her forehead, barely hidden by her bangs.

    Default Hyen and Zar cool facts to know

    Hyen has a dulistic personality when not on a job he is playful and acts like a 8 year old kid contently fiddling with item with his hands usually knitting. On a job he is very serious and doesn't joke or seem to have any humor.

    Zar is quiet and creepy she has no remorse or compassion about any person other than her brother, she also does not care about much other than revenge and looking out for her brother.

    Hyen's tag is on his bandanna

    Zar's tag was on her vest.

    Default Alrighty!

    So, Clarity and Zetaya were amidst their travels when they likely encountered a threat of some sort and Airmid being Airmid likely intervened without question, seems like the most likely scenario to happen to get those three together.
    As Airmy isn't very forward with introductions it was probably either a task that you both took that I was on, or a chance encounter like that.

    As for Hyen and Zar, should Zar ever cause trouble or mischief it could have been perceived as a threat to the public, though some simple explanations from Hyen is very likely to convince the naive Paladin.
    She'd much rather protect and scold the shadow rather than hurt it..... even if it is already dead?
    Otherwise, lets just assume Airmy interjects as justly as possible and became attached to her newfound fellow adventurers. Since she wouldn't dare take a normal person around with her on such tasks, she's likely been alone for most of the time these last three years of wandering.

    Default Blue tag gray tag

    Lore update

    Another point that it seems that I haven’t distribute as well as I should have...

    Almost everyone in this world is a gray tag. Outside of red tags around 98% of people are gray.

    Becoming a blue tag is something that you have to work for. Blue tags are trusted in almost every situation. If you are a blue tag you will be tested and most likely going to be turning gray.

    Also the tags are not tied to alignment. They are tied to what you do. Blue tags are hard to get without effort. It’s easer to get a red tag then a blue tag.

    Default Vague story on how everyone met and got together (not kinky)

    Zetaya and Clarity met a year ago in an adventurer's guild after Zetaya was warned against doing a quest alone. She saw Clarity sitting across the room and felt like something or someone was telling her to go ask Clarity along with the quest. As they adventure out they start to know each other better and agree to stay together. As they continue to go on quests together they start warming up to each other.

    Four months later, as Clarity and Zetaya are going along with another quest they come across another who was on the same quest, Hyen and Zar. After Clarity talking to Zetaya they all agree to continue on the quest together, and find that they work great together. As they go along Zetaya starts to warm up to Hyen, but Zar still creeps her out a bit.

    A week later as the group is out going from town to town they come across a small girl, Airmid. She stated that people were complaining of a black spirit causing havoc wherever it went and that she was there to take care of the problem. After a minute of scolding from Airmid she offers them her services, if they ever need it. The group (and reluctantly Zetaya) agree to have her come along and join their group.

    Eight months have passed since they have become a band of adventurers. They enjoy each others company (even if Airmid would never admit it), warmed up to each other, and have fun.

    Default It sounds about right!

    I'm probably going to ix-nay the tsundere part of her character except towards strangers.
    She'll lecture others as part of the good she's doing. Protect someone once, they're safe for a moment!
    Encourage, or scold them, to learn how to protect themselves and they'll be safe and keep others safe for a lifetime!

    However, people that have come to rely upon her only receive the lecture once if she expects to accompany them for the sole purpose of protection.
    She also takes pride in the fact that people rarely argue with her assessments as she is a blue tag, and looking out for their well-being.

    Default Random board lore

    Because I can here is some fun facts and lore about the world.

    Adventurers age is measured from the day that they got their tag. They then have two birth days one if the day they where actually born the other is when they where born into the world of adventure.

    An adventurer will often say their age by their adventuring age. The oldest adventurer on record is a gnome named Cornak. He was 230. He was a very odd individual. He only went out for the first 50 years of his life as an adventurer then just shut him self into his lab and never came out. He died when his lab exploded and ever since people have been trying to figure out what he was working on but all the notes are in code. Theres also a lot of them missing due to the fire and the few that have been translated make zero since even with magic.

    The longest that adventurers typically live is only 100 years even for the long lived races due to the large amount of danger involved in the profession.

    The war Adventurers Last took place 340 years ago. I chose this date to make it recent enough that some people where alive back then and so is still fresh but long enough ago for most of the fear that the common people have to go away particularly for the shorter lived races. As well as almost all of the damage caused from the war to be repaired. Due to how bad that it was during that time it will take a much longer time before adventurers are actually trusted as they used to be.

    The town of Paydine is very similar to most boarder towns. The closest boarder is that with the Beast folk country of Varkith.

    Total pop: 1240
    pop break down:
    30% human
    20% elf
    20% dwarf
    10% halfling
    10% half elf
    5% half orc
    5% other

    Town Mayor
    Name Borin
    male human
    He is also the leader of the local chapter of the adventurers guild.
    This town has a democratic system to elect the mayor but all of his opponents have withdrawn their candidacy before the election meaning that there has only ever been his name on the ballot.

    Constable
    Name Trixy
    Female Halfling
    She takes her job very seriously. She has a large presences for being so small and has been know to yell a subordinate half-orc into substitution. She also spends a large amount of time in the adventurer section of town often seen trying to break up fights between adventurers and so has gained a reputation for being completely fearless possibly suicidal.

    common monsters in the area: Goblinoids, Orc, Troll.

    Primary local terrain type forest
    secondary terrain type grasslands
    Common features abandoned fortification and caves

    Default Much better map

    Here is the map made by Maria and looks way better.

    Note the reason that the boarder is magical is because it is marked with well magic.

    It determined by distance to the nearest rift, the size of the rift, and activity of the rift.

    on a large scale the boarder is shaped like a cats eye and is wavy and the rifts are slightly scattered. The largest rift in the country is in the middle and is known as the Eye of Nethys.

    Default Calendar

    Ok so I'm making a calendar for this game because why not. Only problem is I'm having a hard time coming up with the names of the month for this world.

    What I have so far
    hours in day 24
    days in year 365
    days in week 7
    day names
    Sarda, Sheda, Iroda, Abada, Iomda, Cayda, Desda
    I used names of 7 core gods for this. Naming convention first 3 letters of gods name followed by da.

    There are 10 months. The first month has 36 days the second 37 third 36 and so on with the tenth month having 37.

    there are 3 moons
    Pillan, Crimon, Pharmorn

    They are more or less named for their color.
    Pillan is white and smallest but also brightest it is tidal locked with the planet and the side facing the planet has few craters. Picture the brighter spots on our moon and that's its general coloration. It is seen as a moon of prosperity due to the large amounts of what looks like silver ribbons spider webbing across its surface.
    Crimon is a volcanic moon with mostly shades of red that change frequently as it has lava flowing on its surface and is the largest its dark side still has some light due to the lava. The longer that the spot on it is exposed to the sun the hotter that it gets causing it to have a gradient to its color with irregularities due to volcanic eruptions due to the fact that there are no fixed points on this moon and the way that it heats and cools with the suns light it is not know if it is tidal locked or not.
    Pharmorn is a dark colored moon that does not give off much light its color ranges from dark blue to almost black this moon is not tidal locked with the planet and so you can see each side of it. This moon is named after the god of death Pharasma. Many worshipers of Pharasma have their rituals set by the phases of this moon.

    Default Month names based on the Gods

    Honestly you probably could have stuck with the dates they do for Pathfinder since we're using their Pantheon it only makes sense.

    http://pathfinder.wikia.com/wiki/Calendar

    Days are based on what you're expected to do in the day + a celestial body

    Months are based on a God and what the God represents, so unless you totally want to have nonsense names of the months....
    Since you already used God names for days of the week...

    Default First post

    You all just come through the door into the local guild hall in search of a new quest to make a little money. As you enter you can hear what sounds to be an adventurer arguing with the person at the counter. There are several other adventurers in the room sitting at various tables talking to each other.

    The half orc at the table bellows “To hell with this you will give me what’s owed or else.” He draws an axe and buries it into the desk.

    The Female attendant just looks at him saying in a calm voice “Damaging guild property is punishable by a 2GP fine.”

    Zetaya looks to Hyen and smirks and down to Airmid bouncing up and down before her. She shakes her head slightly. "Airmid, calm, we don't know what all this commotion is about." Looking at the half-orc and back to Airmid. "Since it looks like you have this under control Air, I'll be looking at the quest board." With that she leaves to go look at the quest board. She keeps an ear out in case Airmid gets in trouble or the situation escalates.

    Seeing that he is outnumbered the half orc says “Well hell.” Before pulling out a couple of gold and practically throwing it at the attendant. He rips his axe free and stomps our shoulder chucking dwarf on the way out.

    The attendant calmly picks up the coins before casting mend on the table.
    “Thanks for that. Boss gets annoyed when I have to use this.” She holds up a wand before putting it back behind the counter. “Anyway here for your trouble.” She hands the two gold from the half orc to Airmid. “If you need any thing just let me know.”

    There are two escort quests one to the town deeper to the town of Arakil and another to the town Haydun. These types quests offer free food and pay by the mile. Arakil reward 68 gp. Haydun reward 104 gp.

    There are three retrieval missions. The first is a body retrieval a group of adventurers seems to have bitten off more then they could handle and most of their group died and the last member would like what’s left of their bodies back. Reward any loot left in the area and half of what was on the bodies quest giver requests first pick.

    Second is more search and rescue. A farmer seems to have gone missing his family is paying for his return. Reward 10 gp (gm note this is likely most of all the money the family has)

    Last is the retrieval of items stolen from a merchant convoy. They where attacked on the road coming from Faford. Reward 100gp.


    The attendant gives the first expression other then boardbom to show a little surprise before she puts the gold into a drawer in the counter.

    Default Late does not mean unaware

    Clarity, who has been quietly observing from beside the door since the party walked in, begins by walking over to Zetaya next to the board and examining all the quests equally.
    "Taya, I do believe it best if we tried to maximize our potential and cross examine all board postings to see if any happen to have ties to each other. It would only make sense if we looked at any postings for harmful groups bounties that coincide with any escort, retrieval, or search and rescue quests. After all, why kill two birds with one stone when you can gather four eggs from two nests?" Clarity says with a slight monotone to her voice and a semi smile.

    After a little more examination of the postings, Clarity walks over to the receptionist.
    "Hello Guild Girl. What was Korag so mad about this time? Expecting more from a small job again? I hope he realizes that not every clam yields a pearl, let alone a golden one. Is there any news we should know about from the guild masters?"

    (You mentioned other adventurers sitting around chatting)
    Clarity looks around the room while waiting for a response from Guild Girl to see if there is anyone here she recognizes as having crossed paths with on friendly terms.
