Name: Thorn
Age 15, 5'3" and 120 lbs.

Simply put, Thorn is out-of-place. Despite that she was trained stealth directly under her parents, and even including the fact Shades are physically mute, Thorn is 'loud', somewhat brash, and extremely animated. She doesn't hesitate 'speaking' her mind, and her sense of humor, while not evil per-say, can't be described as benevolent, either. It's been found that images are her favorite form of communication, as she can find simple puns for them readily. Actually, she is fond of being practically obnoxious in anyway possible, which had earned her common name, opposed to her choosing it. For being a "Thorn in everyone's side." It amused her so.

Through all of her shenanigans, Thorn is proficient at blending in the shadows and takes her rogue teachings seriously. Even if seeing her with a serious face is an unsettling sight.

With Fnar777's permission, Thorn will be able to make obscure and nonsensical references to various things and the like that don't exist in this world. Like if someone asks her why she did something, she would project them an image of the Pokemon, Wynaut. It's also possible for her to use real-world slang.а If asked to elaborate she will have no idea what they are talking about and continue as normal. This is simply for kicks and giggles. But it was worth mentioning.~

(Stats can be posted if requested? This is a simple thing I wanted to do. I do have some more backstory and the like, but I can't word it so it won't sound stupid. I may edit this later if I figure it out.)

Name: Anthony Zachariah Azel
Race: Rekindled
Age: 28 (5 years as Rekindled)
Story: Anthony was a young savant of the various Arkane arts, finding himself enthralled by the magics of, and beyond this world, however, all things have their risks for the over eager. Mechanists face the risk of cuts, burns, or shocks. Martial artists must be careful of muscle strains and weapon mishaps. The dangers an Arkanist faces, however, are much more... alive.
While practicing new ways to use magic and new incantations and rites he'd found in a book purchased from a traveling trader, he accidentally summoned something intangible to him. It whispered in his ear, promising power and knowledge beyond what he could imagine. The foolish man agreed to the creature's terms, and was overtaken by a rush of magic energy. He could feel every inch of his body tingle with new power and he began to laugh, but the laugh that came from his mouth was not his own.
His body began to move by itself, taken by whatever great force had given him this power. He was forced to watch as members of his village were burned, frozen, evicerated, and electricuted. He fought as hard as he could, gaining control of one arm from the entity. He reached up and grabbed his other hand, intent on fixing his mistake. He forced magic energy through his own body in a loop, the primal force destroying his organs as it passed through them. Through the intense pain he kept it up, his new passenger shouting unknown curses and threats the whole time. Finally, he gave a final push and his body was blown apart, the explosion wiping out the few people around, but saving the world from an unknown horror...
From the passion and will of young Anthony, a new body formed to house his consciousness. He recalled nothing from his life, save his name, his love of magic, and fire. In the three years since then he had taken up a nomadic lifestyle, moving from place to place to learn more about magic in its various forms, but he has the caution of a professional now, having subconsciously taken his past's lesson to heart. He is relatively satisfied with life and plans to keep learning more and more until he is the greatest Arkanist of them all... but sometimes on cold nights he sits alone, an ember of conjured fire in his hands, and tries to remember what he was just before he died...

Description:аAnthony stands about 6'4" tall, having an almost unnaturally thin body. The flesh and metal of his body have major burn scars in some places and can be unsettling or sickening to the average person, and his face is seamed like a patchwork quilt. He usually covers himself with a long robe and a ceramicаmask to hide this. His movements are slow and deliberate, and he's rather quiet, only speaking up when spoken to, to make a point, or make an occasional pun (A throwback to his living personality.)

Theme Song:аPinwheel Theme - Dark Souls OST

Quotes

When asked about magic: "Magic is life. One doesn't truly live until they've felt the fire in their belly, the electricity in their bones, the ice in their heart, and made it all real.

When asked what happened to his face: "Someone told me a funny joke... it left me in stitches..." *puts his mask back on* "I'll be quiet now."

аI had to go look them up, actually- I never heard of them until now! I'm glad she reminds of them- they seem pretty darned snazzy. And wow the similarities are there. ovo I gave my girl the white tattoos because I saw the girlie shade in the art had some, even if they didn't look as bold. :> Thank you!~

Nothing wrong with a few tattoos it can be a great way to make your char stand out. Also depending on backgrounds and such i found with some of my chars in other games for the Tattoos to mean something. Such as one char who tattooedаmonsters he fought against and found challenging onto him self.а

Still it is an interesting char concept i hope you have fun playing her Rijolt

Name: Ignulvies The Devourer...and Chacha

Race:Wretched

Age: 21

Height: 7'2"

weight: 340 lbs

Descriptions: Ignulvies is a hulking Golem of muscle and sinew he is as wide as two humans abreast and towers over even many monsters, wearing the signature Skull motif gas mask of his people and a hooded duster caked with ash and blood he is a bit solitary by nature and never seems to say more than one word at a time, when heard his voice is deep and hoarse like the sound of gravel under boot, his duster is normally kept open revealing a massive maw in his chest the gnarled shards of bone making up it's teeth seem inflamed and swollen, it leaks a thick syrupy substance that smells nauseatingly sweet like nectar used to lure insects. his pants are stitched in a splotchy manner akin to ashy camouflage, and at his belt is a large sack it is stained and leaks a coagulated slime that smells of rot. on his back is a bandolier of small rucksacks that chink and clang with the sounds of innumerable metal objects rustling against each other and upon his shoulder sits a curious animal, resembling a mix between a lemur and a flying squirrel its fur an alternating pattern of black and gray his head has two large twitching ears and three piercing green eyes Chacha, as he calls it, is obsessed with all things small and metallic especially nuts, bolts and gears which it collects(and steals) then deposits into one of the many rucksacks on its hulking protectors back....it is in your best interest if/when Chacha takes any trinket from you that you let him keep it for Ignulvies will react violently towards anyone and anything that threatens or in anyway distresses his diminutive friend.

а

while quiet and solitary by nature Ignulvies is fiercely, some would say blindly, protective of anyone or thing that he considers his friends and is quick to go into a rampage when his friends are in danger.

Loving the character, ingluvies, glad you decided to join us. Would you mind introducing yourself over in the introduction sub-forum? Let us know how you found us, what you're looking forward to, and a little bit about your gaming experience. We'd really appreciate it!

Oh yeah, where to start. I cant upload the image for size restrictions.

Kelphas Darkborn - Wretched

built like a tank with the temper of smooth stone, Kelphas is old, very old for wretched. an expert shot with his trusty revolvers and very prone to forgetting everything that has happened in the last couple hours (sometimes mid fight). He prefers to fireа3 shots quickly and end the fight like that as not many can guess he hasа3 arms hidden under his chem-coat.

The particular name of this shade is a secret kept rather well, or maybe he doesn't have a name.

quiet and fast, this rather young shade is more often found with something that doesn't belong to him, but a flash of whit is all you will see soon after as his favoured technique is run and hide but if cornered will lash out with magically enhanced strikes only to vanish again.

Judeau the reaper (or what he likes to call himself)

is a rekindled specialising in necromancy. after discovering a natural talent for raising and controlling the dead, he attempted to show his fellow members of his old home that the dead have a place with the living. After that fateful day, he awoke as Judeau only to find the town wiped from the map and many empty graves.

the drone known as Troncage has seen it all.

the end of the world, theаrise of the first mutants, the following wars. all of this would be of valuable use if he hadn't had more mind-wipes than you can wave a stick at. taken by one group only to be damaged and left behind.аIf it hadn't been forаtheаlatest group of scrappers to wake him, he probably beаsleeping until the end of the earth two. only recently has he been awake long enough to rebuild his personality and join the scrappers that had rescued him from eternal sleep.

Razleth Vir Serafan. Vampire and scrapper extraordinaire

In his rather short time on the surface he has already lost over a hundred teams of scrappers. using his twin hire breathing gauntlets he has "fired" more people than he has hired. A chef at heart, he prefers cooked meals over raw food and usuallyаburns them himself.

Eachаgroup hired by Razlethаfall prey to some unforseen event, only for himаto hire a new crew only to watch them barely make it past the week.аHe hopes thisаcurrent groupаis built out of tougher stuff than his previous teams as a great treasure has revealed itself before his eyes.

To pile onto this thread, it would be very interesting to see some completed sample character sheets (be they Google Drive, filled out PDFs, typed, whatever). аI've been talking with a friend about firing up a game in the system that deviates from the Playtest adventure and his first comment was that seeing some sample completed characters we could use it as a training exercise to teach new players the process of character creation in a 'hands on' way. аJust a thought.

@csmithere That is a rather terrific idea. I have had some plans on adding in a section that explains how a character sheet is filled out, but I haven't gotten to it as of yet. But in the mean time, I'll talk to a few of our playtesters to see if they don't mind me distributing their character sheets around.
