I am hoping that everyone can be done with their characters by this weekend, as I would like to start the game on Monday.

Last I checked, some of you were mostly done and a few needed some more work. In particular, I really want those backround stories written up, as I would like to use them as much as possible to really immerse your characters.

I think the bottom one is one of Haldir's brothers...Orophin, perhaps?


The top one is Elrohir. I too confuse both illustrations all the time.
The second one is indeed Orophin.

Hey Paul, just finished up my character...I think. If you could check out my character, at your leisure, and see if there's anything I got wrong or need to tweak, just let me know...

I'm plugging away at my end while I'm on the road for work. I'll write up my notes for the background into some proper prose and post them here by tonight. I'll have no problem getting the rest of the character stuff posted up during the weekend. Finn son of Finnulf looks forward to making your acquaintance.

Quick question as I couldn't seem to find it in the AiME 5e guide. Does your intelligence bonus grant you extra language(s)?

No. Your race/culture and background are it.

I'm a bit behind schedule but running hard to catch up. I sent Paul a link to a google doc with background last night. I've got notes for the rest and should be able to pull it all together later tonight.

Click on the Character Sheet tab. Then over on the upper right part of the sheet, just under "Experience Points" click BIO; the lower left portion is labeled "Character Backstory"...there's also an area above that, "Patrons and Sanctuaries", that I expounded on a little bit...the others I left blank...

Gunky-looked over your sheet and most things looked good. Looks like you missed your Hands of a Healer and Tongues of Many People ability.

In your features area, I took out the things that did things like add +1 to your core attributes since they aren't really options for you to use in the game. Instead, I put them on the bio page, where there is a spot for other features. This is where I like to keep the "how I got here" stuff that is not really usable once you have it.

There were also a few minor things like your AC was off by 1 (actually 1 better than what you had). I also changed your staff to a quarterstaff, since that is the type of staff that is usable as a weapon. The other was basically a walking stick. I am also itemizing your traveling gear.

I am glad someone chose the scholar class, as I am excited to see it in action. Great roleplay/support class...just lousy at fighting.

Hey Paul, I just logged onto Roll20 to work on my bio... and noticed that my character sheet is totally blank now (other than name). I don't know much about Roll20, any ideas?

Hey Mitch, was reading your bio.... did you pick "the harrowed" as your background too? If so, I didn't realize you picked it when I was picking a background. Great minds think alike I guess! LOL

This would actually work out pretty well character-wise if we're both plagued by similar, though slightly different dreams.

There are a couple tabs. What you are looking as is the bio page (red tab). If you click the CORE tab right next to it, it will take you to the your main page. The bio page is what a few people have not completed yet, most likely because they didn't know it was there.

The first In-Character thread has begun. Head over, subscribe, and post whenever ready. While I would like a post per day, I have some time in the summer so I will be checking in often, so I will move as quickly as the group desires.

https://rpggeek.com/article/26344807#26344807

The other question I have for you is whether you want to handle updates to your character sheets or whether you want me to. When we level up, that will be your job to do, but I am talking about things like use of Inspiration, HP count, uses of their virtues, etc.

Some players would prefer not to worry about it, in which case I am happy to do it. Others like to keep control over their own page. I am fine either way, but we need to agree one way or the other as a group.

One of my goals this campaign is the do a better job of rewarding Inspiration. I have given everyone Inspiration to begin, reflecting their current state of mind. I would encourage you to use it often, as I would like to reward it often for great roleplaying in general, playing to your character's personality (esp. their faults, fears, etc.) I would also encourage you to nominate fellow players.

Thank you for catching my errors! I am excited and nervous for the challenge of playing the scholar.

I'd welcome a bit of help with bookkeeping the character, if you don't mind. I'm on the road quite a bit this summer and plugging stuff into BGG via phone can be a challenge. But if everyone else wants to handle it themselves, I'm happy to do it.

I'll pop into the game thread when I get to my hotel this evening.

Thanks for everything!
