Welcome to the /tg/ OC thread.
Previous Thread: >>47814821
Tell us about your original characters, new and old. Let's hear some stories of valor and glory and build some legends in here.

>THIS THREAD IS PRIMARILY FOR CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AND SHOWING OFF YOUR FAVORITES FROM YOUR GAMES
It's like the Storythread, but centered on characters that we all know and help make. Your Original Character can be any character you've played, are playing, or want to play!

>WHEN POSTING YOUR OC
Give us a little blurb about your character, this is a brag thread after all. Some basic questions to get you started:
• Name:
• Role(s):
• Goals:
• Traits:
• Flaws:
• Allies:
• Enemies:
• Other Relations:
• Physical Description:

>WHAT'S YOUR OCs MARY SUE SCORE?
http://www.springhole.net/writing/marysue.htm

Write and share stories about each others' characters (use a pastebin for works that would take up multiple posts). Draw and share pictures of each others' characters(please link offsite for NSFW work).

Ask questions about other anons characters and get to know their stories, and tell us all about your own.

Need help developing a new character concept? Ask away! Answering the periodically posted Development Questions can often help, so look for those.

This thread is intended to be all in good spirit, so please remember to be excellent to each other, and try to contribute in some way.

>IF YOU JUST NEED CHARACTER ART, GO TO THE DRAW THREAD
There are more artists consistently there that are actively looking for requests to fill, that's not the case here. Artists are still free to contribute, however.

>DON'T MAKE A NEW THREAD UNTIL PAGE 10
Use new art from these threads as OP image when possible.

GoogleDoc of the characters so far (still in progress, so don't be alarmed if you don't see yours) https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B_dUy0Yo4cigbTB1Q1g5bTRvcTQ&usp=sharing

Development Question: If you're character wrote a self help book, what would it be about?

>> No.48047252

Joshua Troy, Shadow Name is Ajax. He's a socialite, and a witch. A fatespinner. He's searching for answers as to what has drawn his compatriots and he together; why the threads of fate have had this pattern. He's overly protective, and that ties in with his pride. He's charismatic, and the closest his group has to a party face. He gets egocentric at times, and manipulates his friends, too. He blames it on the symbols he sees since Awakening, but he was always a bit manipulative. He also does not know when to shut up, which has gotten in trouble more than a few times. His allies are his best friend Q, a sin-eater, Burke a werewolf FBI agent, the other residents of his condominium, and his bar's owner, Lucifer. His enemies are his father William, and a demon named Sin that has been playing chess with Josh and his friends as the pieces. He also has his younger sister, who he's raised, his mother who's gone missing, and his girlfriend Samantha.
>If your character wrote a self help book, what would it be about?
It would likely be about how to improve your social life, and how to talk to strangers in any situation.

Name: Paar'tol, the Elderplague

Role: Ward against spirits, black magic, and all forms of supernatural predators.

Goals: Use his education of the inner workings of the sides of Light and Dark as a benefit to mankind, casting out those who would victimize innocent lives.

Traits: Has a mentor-like mindset, loves a listening ear and to teach others ways to protect themselves through clever application of charms, trinkets, and rituals.

Flaws: When encountering an adversary he's unfamiliar with, Paar'tol is on edge to a fault, often becoming blocked mentally as he tries to formulate a plan of action. This can slow down his reflexes and clog his mind.

Enemies: Hidden witch covens pepper the lands Paar'tol resides in, and it's his duty to flush them out into the light.

He got his name of "Elderplague" after aiding a local mercenary band ONCE, that had been hired to clear out a coven preying on a small farmtown and Paar'tol helped see them to victory.

He didn't do anything to 'earn' the nickname, it was just something this contractor group did for fun apparently, and it stuck. I mean, they gave the other guy the name Wardbreaker, which Paar'tol is pretty jealous of.

Recently, he got married to the party barbarian, the way they interact together is really cute. Party barbarian is played by my irl wife.

Pictured is the progress of a commission that is being done to celebrate our actual upcoming 5th anniversary.

• Name: Ashtoreth Fairheart
• Role(s): Party face, bard, and general support
• Goals:To explore the cruel and unforgiving world she has been born into, and prove to not only herself but her family that the world they inhabit can be kind and beautiful.
• Traits: Rather stubborn and brave, she tends to act more tomboyish then anything else. She has a sincere love for those around her. While rather generous, she tends to be more naive and trusting then the rest of the party
• Flaws: Her lack of understanding of the outside world from her rather controlled upbringing has left her naive and easily pressured into things, as her trust in the good in people is easy to manipulate
• Allies: The Royal Fairheart Family, The Military of Cyre, The Military of Breland, general Party members
• Enemies:House Cannith, Remants rebels of Dargoon
• Physical Description: More on the shorter side, she stands around 5'4 with a slim slightly feminine figure. If her hair was cut back completely and she was to wear masculine cloths, she could easily be mistaken for a man due to her under developed body type.

• Name:
Irya Sheen
• Role(s):
Witch, Planar Cartographer, Magical Shopkeep, Party Mom
• Goals:
Regain her prior power, as it was fractured within the many lives of other 'hers' within other planes - but, mostly? Irya wants knowledge as direly as a dragon wants a horde.
• Traits:
Wisened, snide, silver-tongued, maternal, and sharp as a tack.
• Flaws:
Paranoid, crude, drastic, obsessive, and too straight-forward.
• Allies:
A few of her Acolytes (other spellcasters she taught of 'leaping' about the planes), a few others who stride the spaces between worlds, such as an eccentric blue-haired alcoholic and a worshipper of a strange, birdlike god. Also commonly followed by a tiny, feathered dinosaur she bound to her.
• Enemies:
She's made many in her travels and fervent pursuit of knowledge, and her stigmata makes her easy to find for such.
• Other Relations:
Before she began walking, she was happily entangled into a strange relationship with a changeling by the name of Ravasaadi. Unknown to her, he's still trying to find her.
• Physical Description:
See picture.

Current events:
>Hired a weird possibly doppelganger "paladin" solely to stalk him and possibly dissect him if he falls in battle
>Compulsively drinks coffee due to a recent alchemical breakthrough
>Now the party mom for a group of chucklefucks to be entering a tomb. Said "paladin" from above is the party dad, meanwhile.

That elder thing looks and sounds familiar!

Name: "Red" Callahan

Role(s): Arcane dabbler, combat focused Warlock who had beseeched an Elder Thing to bestow him power on the eve of an ill-fated siege. He doesn't yet know what he paid for the gifts...

Goals: Break the bond forged between him and this cosmic horror, and find a way to stop the hallucinations.

Traits: Analytical, intelligent, and he has a good sword-arm. Doesn't mind hanging around pretty much anybody, assuming they aren't trying to "get" him.

Flaws: suffers major stress disorders from the raid that lost him so many men and through a chain of events caused the eventual capture of his capital.

Enemies: The Otherwordly One that he leeches power from, he hopes not to understand it, but to remove himself from it.

Name: Dante Morapaidi
Role: Allurin Gunslinger (50% lust demon, 50% human)
Goals: Kill his incubus father, who kidnapped his mother
Traits: Fairly charming (he once seduced half the prison guard), enjoys experimenting with science and really hates demons
Flaws: Absurdly naïve and innocent mixed with self-loathing and self-destructive behavior because of hating demons (of which he is one), and really not a fan of children
Enemies: His father, pretty much all demons, in particular a succubus psion named Inlecebra (Read: Lacy Bra)
Physical Description: Semi-tall guy with copper hair that probably has some kind of rust, dirt or gunpowder in it with a pepperbox named Beatrice, wears a swashbucklers hat and a scarlet cape to match.
Other Hijinks: When he was a child, he got kidnapped by a pimp and was eventually set free by the aforementioned half-elf paladin. On his way back home, he stopped to stay for a time at various villages, where the girls all seemed to be very interested in his scientific exploits, at least until he was sent packing by various fathers, brothers, and in one instance, a particularly voracious goat.

Story time.
The first thing that hit me was the smell. Burke had called again, wanting some more, well, "insight" on a crime. It was always difficult to do, though. An investigation let's you piece together the crime. But watching what happened? It can take a toll on the psyche. It's as if you're there, but powerless, and I have, as Burke calls it, delicate sensibilities. But still I agreed.

I showed up to the apartment, and nearly retched. There was blood everywhere; strange symbols drawn on the walls. From what I could tell, some kind of warding, but the symbols were beyond me. I strode through the blood, too find a link, something to tie me to what I was looking for.

I wistfully grabbed a family photo, and looked at Burke, his expression grim.

"All of them have been accounted for, Josh. And Q tells me there souls were taken."

I realize Q must have found one of the ghosts, and decided it was time to get a move on. A few mutterings in high speech, a few gestures, and I'm there. Rather, then.

The door is shut, and I see some men approach, and I feel the malice. The symbols around them signify that they're quite old, one more so. The leader. He begins to speak, his voice gravelly.

"Make a mess in there. This isn't about the blood. It's about sending a message. Letting them know we're back."

They walk in, and the first thing that hit me is the smell. Copper.

Regardless of names and what not, i do have a new character i wanted to share

• Name: Alison
• Role(s): N/A
• Goals: N/A*
• Traits: She is defensive of the things she cares about, she has very strong emotions. she doesn't get attached easy but when she does, she gets VERY attached
• Flaws: her emotions are to the extreme, she doesn't remember much and is prone to lash out quite violently
• Allies: N/A
• Enemies: priests
• Other Relations: N/A
• Physical Description: while it is hard for her to keep a physical form, when she does hold a form, she can be seen as a young girl with yellow eyes and flowing black hair.

Alison died when she was very young, she does not know how. In order for Alison to leave the world she needs to figure out why her soul is not resting...and take care of the problem. The issue is, they way she died has caused her memories to become jumbled and miss matched, making it almost impossible for her to figure anything about herself out. The party is currently helping Alison discover who she is.

Alison, while scared art first, has developed a strong bond with one of the party members, making her very protective of them. Alison is in fact terrified of her situation and because of this she reacts violently and has very powerful mood swings, most of the time ended in a break down. She is a very emotionally troubled character.

How Noire got the scar on her neck
okay so the party arrived in the five cities of Viningel and we rest in the tavern in the more shady district (he split up the area into 5 places and the more rich/noble area's tavern was full at the time) so during a weekly me and another player are woken up by a child knocking on our door, turns out her brother had been kidnapped by a gang and was held up by it trying to force him to join into it. So the girl noticed us when we walked into town as adventures and was asking us for assistance to find her brother and rescue him we agree and head out, so after we head out we run into an ambush, try to diplo it out at first buy only get a single guy who was hitting on my character. Fight breaks out guy I diploed stays out Tiefling eldritch brawler charmed person another so we do pretty well only the Tiefling's hell hound get's knocked out.

Continuing onwards we find the ever changing scorpion gang's hideout (it was constantly just something scorpion) Tiefling seduces one of the big gang members to have sex with her out behind the place, I go in turns out the child was selling us out but she wanted the party Cleric who was not with us at the time, I start running out but only get outside the place on my first round, one of the people manages to get next to me due to have 40 ft move speed and double moved, next round I withdraw so I only took 1 AOO, failed the acro, GM rolls 20 and confirms the crit so I had a nasty wound on my neck doing constant bleed damage and would start drowning me in a few rounds. Guy I diplod out earlier turned out to be the medic of the group (good heal check) heal checks me and stops the bleeding but giving her a nasty scar on her neck due to it not being magical.

>> No.48051013

• Name: Marius Vogt
• Role(s): Party Face
• Goals: Mostly prove that his blindness is not the damning thing it was treated as.
• Traits:
-Charismatic: The Tiefling is naturally charismatic, and that mask just adds a level of mystery to the man.
-Awareness: Lack of sight means that Marius is dependant on his other senses, giving a better general awareness of his surroundings.
-Careful: Thought before action, action after thought. Even as a flashy swashbuckler, Marius refuses to charge in blindly, considering his course before moving.
• Flaws:
-Blind: Senses are no substitute for sight, and he can't see and thus has difficulty reading moods on occasional.
-Noble upbringing: Even after his travels, his upbringing tends to leave not exactly versed in how most people live.
-Flashy: Marius likes to put on a performance, often abandoning stealth for a show.
• Allies: To be determined.
• Enemies: To be determined.
• Other Relations: He's the firstborn son of a noble family, but was pushed to the side when his folks had a second son who was healthy.
• Physical Description: See the OP image.

and now the most recent weekly that happened with Noire

Okay so the group is currently in the picchato jungle and the GM rolls for what the difficulty of the weekly will be and it got high risk high reward so we went exploring in the jungle and found ancient ruins of a civilization lost so I grow out the cat tail and whiskers (story that I will probably talk about later) for bonus on Perception vs stealth, Acro, and Reflex. Barley avoid falling into first fight, fight the group of enemies later in less favorable terrain that was a cr 8 fight take them out relatively easily and use amulet and all it's casts of channel energy for full heal, open up tomb cause GM has us (me and my sister)have Draconic bloodline basically and dragons blood was needed to open it and find 1d20 potions (got 20 yay) and 10 treasure rolls, find 2 bags of holding one of which turned out to be bag of devouring but it failed to cmd my sister so we killed the shit out of it. Didn't decide to equip any of the stuff we found cause of that thinking of more curses and none of us are magical so we read some plot stuff about prophecies involving my character and our shared bloodline then leave. After we exit the tomb there is a giant hole above us, why? because a young adult white dragon is the guardian of the tomb we roll initiative we all roll shit but less shit than the dragon so we go first after we charge we both get an AOO because it get's flying 10 feet in the air to avoid full rounds and it get's aoo's every time we try to acro to hit ( I could not fail but sister had around 20% chance too) so after about 5 rounds of combat I hold my action for my sister to eat the AOO she makes the jump crit's the dragon and knocks it out, crit effect is bleeding, I choose to heal check and successfully stabilize cause good character and not gonna kill a dragon for just doing it's job protecting the tomb and we get out alive, I am at 8 hp 1 panache and my sister is at 20 hp

here's one i had for a WoD game I kinda lost interest in. But i might want to pick up the concept again someday! It was fun to play.


• Name: Clinton Holly, FBI
• Role(s): VASCU Special Agent in training, Government Investigator
• Goals: figure out where a sizeable chunk of his life's gone from memory, try to keep self distracted with work
• Traits: Unyieldingly snide and always thinking forward; irresponsible in a lot of ways, but ultimately dedicated to others.
• Flaws: not very self-aware, often loses track of surroundings when focused.
• Allies: Not many. Coworkers are the closest things he has to friends. Has a Mage friend and he may never know she's a mage despite his unfortunate status as a Sleepwalker.
• Enemies: Whoever stole his memories must be an enemy. Or someone looking to make him an ally? He's run into suspect figures here and again but has never truly learned any identities or figures.
• Other Relations: Poor-to-middling relationship with chief director (bad attitude but good results), always bothers apartment neighbors with company when he's lonely and it sounds like someone's over.
• Physical Description: Decently fit (hits the gym), a little wirey, perpetually tired from waking nightmares. Wears a bolo tie lately because of office policy.

Josh becomes more manipulative, a puppet master style villain. Entirely emotionless, any emotion would be a facade.

>How much of their personality remains the same?
I think his personality would main mostly consistent. He would be out trying to prove himself that he's not worthless but probably given into more orc traditions like conquest,pillaging and murder instead of just trying to become a famous hero.
>What's different?
He'd be less forgiving. The thing that keeps Kaiger good is that he doesn't people to view him and orcs as monsters. So he tries his best to have some social awareness and he has a sense of loyalty to his party. An evil Kaiger would probably be more willing to kill anyone who got in his way regardless of his relationship with them so that'd also probably make him less of a mama's boy as well.
>Would they be more successful, or less?
He's not a complete idiot so he'd probably manage to get a decent warband and cause a decent amount of havoc. I'd imagine a band of adventurers would evnetually cause his demise because a lot of Kaiger's strength came from things he learned and obtained from others and I don't think evil Kaiger would have a lot of the things he had if he was evil.
>Would they be happier?
At the end of he more or less enjoys fighting and killing. So being evil allows him to indulge in that more so he might find some joy but I think he wouldn't be happy as he is now. He enjoyed hearing stories of grand heroes as a child and the way his life is turning out he's becoming one of those heroes his mother would tell him. He's managed to befriend elves,humans and tieflings. His name is known throughout the land and he has friends that have his back.

>Appearance:
Golden brown skin, black hair, extremely muscular (18 STR), absolutely covered in scars, and smiles almost constantly. Fists have iron grafted into them after a night of carousing lead him to a back-alley surgeon.

He wears red and gold plate armor wrapped in enchanted thorns that will lash out at attackers.

Wields an artifact greatsword named Rhwnbyd. Found it at early levels (in fact, my old character died stealing it from the dungeon) when it was weakened and unaligned, has since been fully powered and had the will of Armok forced upon it. Extremely powerful anti-corruption weapon.

Holy shit does leveling up turn you into a Mary Sue. A year and a half ago this guy was nothing but a cut-rate fighter without enough gold for his starting gear and a god that literally told him to go fuck himself.

Titles: The Mighty Tentacle, It That Squirms, Mr Flargtastic
Power Level: Outer God
Home Plane: That which lies beyond planes.
Alignment: Chaotic. Just Chaotic.
Portfolio: Tentacles, madness, constantly being summoned by mages, gibberish
Domains: Knowledge, Chaos

Yargle Flarg is a lesser known outer God of Madness and tentacles. Some say that it is the most truly representative of outer gods, as it embodies little more than madness, tentacles, and forbidden knowledge. Commonly has his tentacles yanked into the material plane by nosy mages who have gotten their hand on the legendary tome, "Spells You'll Regret, Volume 1." It views these expeditions with annoyance, as mages either tend to respond to its presence with snark, awe, or simply running away.

>Name:
Vindr

>Role(s):
Party leader, off-tank, the guy who keeps the entire party together. Because of force of personality(or lack there of) his party rallies behind him even when they're in agreement at his childishness.

>Goals:
Become a dark lord, the envoy of a new beginning! From the darkness he came, and thus he'll usher in a new age.(see flaw). Keep his "family" alive and together at any costs.

>Traits:
Strong as an ox, brave as a boulder, this man will willingly throw himself into danger and more often than not comes out on top against all odds. There's a running gag that his "dark lord who brought him into the world" looks after him by giving him bursts of luck to survive situations. He's also partially inventive even with his lower than average intelligence, last session used a decanter of endless water to jetpack out of the middle of a mob of enemies to save an NPC blacksmith lady who was dying.

>Flaws:
Not exactly a smart man, has a slight martyr complex, thinking he's a tool to save his friends and will do so at any cost(even himself). Biggest flaw is his delusions, which are more or less self-induced. All the PCs were summoned into a fantasy world without any memory, but their habits and feelings remain intact. Vindr feels as though he was brought to a new world for a purpose, and then it spirals out of control from there. Comic relief to the party, but after some horrifying events that have happened he'll end up embracing it to cope with the trauma and it'll get even worse from here.

• Allies:
Trap elf cleric, the common sense of the party(sometimes, doesn't know he's a trap).

Trap elf archer, tries to show off a lot but his bad luck ruins almost every moment.(doesn't know he's a trap as well)

Fisherwoman spear user, the ditzy character of the group.

Wingman disco-king sorcerer who has an afro. Looks like he came from the 80s. Total bro.

>> No.48058319

Entirely original characters. We based our game's setting and premise off of an anime called Grimgar , but we're in a different location. Basically X amount of people taken from the real world for an unknown reason and transported to a fantasy world with no memories at all, but sometimes a flash of a memory or a habit comes to surface. Example, Vindr fell into a river and remembered a time when he was in school when he accidentally fell into a pool after getting slightly drunk.

A lot of the players haven't played D&D before aside from me and the GM. He picked all the players up from /a/ when the show was airing, so everyone at first was playing anime cliches however all of the characters have gotten a bit more depth and what it seems everyone is enjoying themselves. There's a total of 12 players split off into two groups(Party B is Vindr's party, we're the underdogs).

It was SoL for awhile but after recent events(can elaborate if you'd like) it has gotten much, much darker.

Also pic related, it's the trap Elf cleric.

>> No.48058386

>>48058319
That actually sounds really fun and a pretty great way to bring new players into the fold. Also Grimgar! I need to finish watching it, I really liked what I saw and it has a very beautiful style.

I wouldn't mind hearing more about it, especially how the GM is juggling two parties around.

>> No.48058530

>>48058386
Grimgar is pretty good, but a bit too slow for some people.

So basically there are two parties, Party A and Party B. Thursdays and Saturdays respectively.

Party A were the players who originally joined first, and Party B were the extra players. GM decided to make room for a second group after getting so much interest. At first there were 7 people in Party A but people have come and gone so it is now even with Party B.

There was a huge party disparity at first, with Party A having 7 players and Party B having only 5(some players had to double dip). It is now even, but IC the reasoning was we were essentially those kids picked last in sports. So this has caused a bit of rivalry with both parties. However as of the moment, Party B in my eyes has had to fighter way more dangerous things with less people over the entire campaign.

The event where things have gotten darker is currently ongoing and gonna be wrapped up by our next session(so far been 3 or 4 sessions long for both parties). Basically we had a hub town that we've been in ever since the start of the campaign, players from both parties have written paragraphs upon paragraphs worth of small stories to try and liven up the town. However a few sessions ago a huge raid from kobolds and goblins backed by a mysterious third party have raided the town while we were in it. All those characters we have rapport with or we've come to know and love, all dead, dying, or gonna be dead soon.

It's a struggle, but so far there's a pretty high chance of almost every single character developing a form of PTSD. And the worst part? In setting there's a country wide curse where if corpses aren't blessed by priests, they raise as zombies with the same level of skill as they had when they were alive. With the benefits of being undead.

Party A escaped after fighting a water elemental(we had to fight a fire one already) but Party B encountered a dark figure who is raising ghosts/undead around himself.

Though the GM had made a passing mention to me when I said I was thinking of multi-classing into warlock with "the great dark lord Nazgrul" as my patron for a joke that Nazgrul actually exists.

So we'll see sometime during the campaign?

Put her in some situation with drama, and then ask yourself the basic reporters litany.
What happened?
Who did that?

Where did it take place?
Why did that happen?

Other way is to map her life up to that dramatic moment, fleshing out the drama and as a side dish, her character.

Okay, trying this again.

>• Name:
Lagakh Vuma-Thukena
>• Role(s):
Orc Berserker, ex-bandit, treasure-hunter
>• Goals:
To find an ancient Orcish artifact said to be created by the god of strength Lugruk-Gol, a warhammer rumored to grant the wielder incredible strength, and sovereignty over all Orcish clans.
>• Traits:
Durable, motivated, steadfast in her beliefs, and very physically powerful. Despite her people craving peace, she desires a return to the "old ways" spoken of in stories and legends. She wishes the Orcish Clans to be feared and respected once again, like they were long ago, not abused and oppressed by the Elves like they are now.
>• Flaws:
Easily angered, power-hungry, physically abusive, recklessly impulsive, and suspicious of most humans and elves. Chews on the bones she keeps strung on her armor when nervous or annoyed. Due to consuming a mind-altering drug as a young girl, as is customary with her clan's berserkers, her grip on reality has slightly waned, leaving her quite unaware of her surroundings when raging, and even outside of battle she can easily drift off into daydreams or delusions.
>• Allies:
Other members of her clan, and basically anyone who can prove their strength to her, those who remember her people's strength.
>• Enemies:
Elves, owners of orc slaves, and her brother Lorgush, who believes Lagakh must be stopped and convinced to adopt the new Orcish way of peace.

I feel this might be a bit better. Any thoughts?

>Name
Luvos Nichto
>Role
Planar Explorer, Diabolic Conjurer, Guest Villain
>Goals
To remain on the forefront of knowledge, exploration, and change. Luvos is in the process of writing a series of encyclopedias of planar knowledge. He is experimenting with means of achieving immortality and slowly perfecting his revenge against his wizard peers.
>Traits
Luvos has little respect for conventions. He enjoys the fleeting nature of comprehension and more enjoys the hunt for knowledge itself. He has demonstrated a frightening degree of patience and a somewhat obsessive personality. He is easily flustered. Luvos is attracted to forbidden knowledge and other things an authority figure says are dangerous this is derived from a desire to overcompensate and impress others by taming such dangerous things. Growing up as a half-drow raised by humans has given him an affinity for the taboo and makes him feel like a kindred spirit to most things labelled as evil and secretive.
>Flaws
In addition to having little respect for tradition, Luvos' time spent exploring the multiverse and planescape has left him reluctant to put any faith in the moral boundaries of any one plane. He has picked up the habit of introducing himself in fancier and fancier nonsensical titles. He believes he is the smartest person in any room but that everyone seems to know something he doesn't. Any attempts at appearing friendly are usually hindered by his creepy and overblown mannerisms, lack of social awareness, and the stench of brimstone clinging to his robes.
>Allies
A animated foot stool with the personality of a terrier and a clumsy broomstick.
>Physical Description
Luvos is an early middle aged half-elf swathed in several layers of dark robes, he is hooded at most times and has dusky grey skin which shows on his face and finger tips. His drow heritage has gives him his yellow eyes and aversion to sunlight. He has sharp features and poor posture. His teeth and nails are pointed but harmless.

Well, she's gonna see the party as a means to help her get her hands on that warhammer. She's not so stupid that she'll refuse the help of an elf if she can get it, however she'll be very, very suspicious of them for a good while. Elves have broken pacts with the Orcs before, and she wouldn't be surprised to see him betray the group, even if her suspicions prove false.

She's probably going to be rough with him for a little while, at the very least. Shoving him out of the way, threatening him, etc. But that'll all stop after a short time.

This is a character I used to play in a Savage Worlds game. The setting was an airship campaign: we were all on a transport airship, travelling elsewhere when pirates attacked, so we did the obvious thing, killed the pirates, and took their ship... So that we could go be pirates instead!

Name: Hae'zelias Soulsavage
Born as a daughter to a demon lord from 'hell', a burned out pit of wreckage far across the ocean, Hazel went out to explore the greater world. Mostly in order to gain power and minions so that she can conquer the rest of Hell.

Role(s): Supposed 'captain', complete physical monster, Ship idiot.
Hazel was incredibly stupid and gullible, but she's ballsy and confident, with enough raw power to take her out of everything her stupidity gets her into. She declared she was 'captain' of the ship after we conquered it, so the smarter members of the crew said 'yeah sure' and then decided on the second of command. The one who was really in control.

Goals: Becoming the Demon Queen. Well, she always declared that she *was* the Demon Queen, even if she hadn't gotten around to conquering hell yet.

Traits: Other than huge-ass claws, a whippy deadly tail (Xenomorph-style), wings that allowed her to conquer a WW1-era fighter plane from *outside of it*, and a few demon magics, she had... uh, good luck?
Essentially, she was a combat monster.

Flaws: A lot of them. Stupid, overconfident, incredibly gullible, and responds to defiance by immediate maiming. I ended up with some big character dissonance when the real ship captain ended up defying her, and I didn't slaughter him for metagaming reasons.

Enemies: Essentially everyone she met other than her crew.. She tried extorting the leader of a village- one who was essentially a humanoid dragon- and one of the final fights in the campaign was against the dragon. I ended up with dragon horns on a plaque. The GM later said that I wasn't meant to win.

All in all, it was a lot of fun.

• Name: Mary-Annette (always together like that)

• Role(s): Primary Caster, Battlefield Control, semi-Face, token psychopath

• Goals: To recreate her childhood village, learn as much about magic as she can, and prove her worldview correct

• Traits: Slightly curious and naive, generally upbeat and prone to humming or tinkering, can get bored easily when magic isn't involved

• Flaws: Highly suspicious and distrusting of those whose motivations she can't pinpoint immediately, doesn't view people who aren't Charmed as people, and is obviously unhinged after a few minutes of conversation

• Allies:
-The Fey
-Expert of all things Ranger
-Gentle giant (Human) Barbarian
-The littlest Witch
-THE VIKING
-Sweaty Inquisitor

• Enemies:
-The Fey
-An evil Noble
-Mysterious voice that commands undead

• Physical Description: A young woman of small stature with an angular face and unusual teal colored hair, see pic

As an infant, Mary-Annette was kidnapped by Fey creatures. Rather than raise her themselves, however, the Fey put her in one of their experimental games: a village where every individual was Charmed to like one another. Mary-Annette was raised by a randomly determined couple, both Charmed to love her as their own. For a time she was happy.

Soon enough, however, the Church caught wind of the village and sent several Paladins to break the spell. When they did so, Mary-Annette's perfect illusion was shattered; all she knew was that magic made others love her, and without that magic she would never be loved again. She determined that magically induced love was the only genuine love to exist, and everything else was self-serving in some way.

After the village was destroyed, Mary-Annette set out to find a source of magic, powerful artifacts, or dark knowledge. She searched for anything capable of bringing back the "true happiness" she felt in the Charmed village.

He was of the Inquisitor class, but had little to no actual pull in the church, and his player implied they sent him to check up on a mercenary company to get rid of him. He sent reports, but wasn't the one making the decisions. All the PCs were part of said mercenary company as the hook to get them together. Pic related, he submitted this shot of Grima as his character portrait.

As for his interactions with Mary-Annette, she just mostly didn't do anything outlandish in his presence. He did stalk her a few times, but could never get enough evidence to do much, and wasn't going to risk trying to go directly against her while he was alone and outside of the church's jurisdiction. He suspected that the other party members would side against him, too, but that was more on his own abrasive personality.

My first character was kinda cliche, but I was fond enough to port him into the current game I'm in.

• Name: Arkus Ward
• Role(s): Paladin, Rogue, Healer, Moral Support, Face
• Goals: To continue his half-brother's legacy, and to never lose another friend in battle.
• Traits: Good-natured, loyal. Irratingly innocent and idealistic - sees the good in people where others may not (Though often incorrect)
• Flaws: Naíve, reckless. Fails to understand the weight and consequences of what he commits to. As the youngest party member, is often the first to suffer emotional trauma, despite his usual encouraging nature.
• Allies: Ion, the Ironborn Warder and Arkus' best friend. Dwyne, his fiercely loyal Pseudodragon familiar and only source of common sense. Lady Folu, the Samsaran Witch. Yukiko, the Tengu Sorceror. Claura the Grippli Druid, moments ago slain by a Black Dragon as Ion dragged a screaming Arkus to safety. Kass the Tiefling Investigator, who recently retired.
• Enemies: His most personal enemy so far had been a cultist torturer who had a twisted curiosity for Elves and Half-Elves. After Arkus was captured, Dwyne performed a daring infiltration and rescue, helping the weakened Paladin in his showdown with the torturer.
• Other Relations: His deceased human half-brother and former adventuring partner, Dwayne. Arkus places him on a high pedestal, but in reality Dwayne was a mediocre paladin and Arkus has long since surpassed him. The rest of his former party - Dyre the human sorceror and "Garry" the elf ranger. Additionally, his unknown Elf biological father is likely still alive.
• Physical Description: A young, somewhat lanky Half-Elf with messy white hair.

>What did your OC want to be when they grew up?
A swashbuckling thief-hero. His half-brother often had to knock him into line, but when he died, Arkus took up his blade and oath instead.

For Lleyna, my warlock halfling, it was probably a human wizard who passed through her town when young. He did some feats of magic for show and work, and she liked how he managed to do well on his own (she wasn't very social for a halfling), and being a magic user seemed exciting. He was the first magic-user she barraged with questions, and he did his best to set her on a good path. Unfortunately, she took the quick path to magic, that of a demonic pact.

If they really consider that person now, it's probably with regret that they didn't listen to him. There's a slight idolization there, since she wishes she had both his power and his freedom, instead of only the former.

Mordin Kainen La Rouge is a happy go lucky illithid and self proclaimed hero. His other titles include Knight Tentacular of the Holy Order of the Tentacle, the Liberator of Elelphants, Psion Extraordiare, and in a small italian town, Spaghetti Man. This fresh faced young hero's goals are no more than to be a hero, and spread the good word of the tentacle. His traits include heroism, bravery, unsurpassed intellect, childlike innocence, and giving himself titles, and secretly being a dire polar bear. His flaws include obliviousness, foolhardiness, is literally 12 years old, gives the party unforgettable titles, and lacks opposable thumbs and can't fit through doors because hes a fucking bear. He is allied with Raptor Jesus, also known as Ketharuil, and a pasty little mage named Zaniel. His enemies include elder evils, bad guys and color yellow. His other relations are his adopted sister Charlotte, an aranaea weaver, and Kirahe, the paladin whose body he used to inhabit. He wears a magic item to look like his old form, as seen in the picture, but switched minds with a polar bear.

Kaiger as a child probably looked up to his mom and the clan Chieftan. He admired his mother's intelligence and kindness but he wanted to be big and strong like the Chieftan of his clan. His mom did her best by teaching Kaiger the basics of fighting. As a man he still looks up to her more so now. She left her life of nobility to adventure and eventually found a happy life with an Orc fisherman. While the Chieftan Kaiger doesn't look up to him anymore because he only really looked up to him for his strength. He had no other qualities that Kaiger admired and Kaiger's at the point where he thinks he could have kicked the dude's ass if he wasn't already dead.

Lagakh idolized and looked up to great Orc heroes she heard about in legends in general. However, there was one she looked up to the most: Kurz Black-Fang. He was said to be the last champion of the god of war Lugruk-Gol, wielder of the warhammer Fatebreaker, and to have killed a hundred Elves by himself in the last great war. Most Orcs try to ignore their past violent nature, but Lagakh desires to become as strong as Kurz Black-fang.

His friends occasionally help him out, but his stubborn pride stops him from relying on them completely. Oftentimes he uses his funds he earns from bounty hunting and adventuring to purchase a chicken or two (or whatever other small creatures are for sale), one for him to eat and another for his companion. When on the road, they, of course, hunt. Luckily, he doesn't need to eat nearly as much as mortals, only needing to indulge on life-force around 3-4 times a week.

Honestly, Hazel wouldn't fit very well in a lot of settings. In the most cliche 'light vs dark' D&D settings, she'd totally be a Neutral Evil antagonist who never really gets off the ground. Maybe a kind of Dresden Files setting as a particularly stupid hell changeling?

Anyway, I just realized that I don't have any kind of picture for my character, >>48065345 so I'll just post a description of her from my mythweavers sheet.

Hae'zelias is a rather humanlike devil, considering her lineage. She has a humanlike appearance from her face, all the way down her front to her upper thighs, though she bears an unnatural golden/bronze complexion.

In various places- her upper arms, lower back, and on the underside of her tail, she has golden scales instead of skin. It's nowhere near as rough as the warped, layered bronze demonbone that serves as the biological armor on her arms, legs, and upper back. Most disturbing is her molten golden eyes, brilliant in their intensity.

Small, slightly curved horns stick up and backward from her forehead. Grand, two-part wings span from her shoulders, and from her elbows down, she has truly deadly talons and hooks on her hands. Her tail, recently grown, is a long, powerful tail, with a keen demonbone blade on the end, various rings and piercings near the tip.

Don't ask how she bored the piercings through the demonbone blade on the tip of her tail, though. That stuff's basically indestructible.

Any setting with magic, wildlife, and elves really. Being honorary barbarian, Arallios doesn't really have a cross-setting handicap as long as there's land with relatively-easily-killable animals, obtainable edible plants, and water sources. Almost anything outside that is mostly negligible. An easier question would be which settings would he'd fit worse in, to which I would answer "anything with sprawling megalopolises and/or 'HFY: Angry About Elves' genocides", since he's terrible with directions/resource management in large cities and not even he can hide from those crusades forever.

Kaiger adventures because he was tired of living in his sister's shadow and being a disappointment to his clan. So he decided to wander the land and see if he could fit in with humans better. He bumped in a half-elf bard who promised him fame and fortune and the rest rest is history.
>>What could cause your OC to stop? What's their limit?
At this point in the campaign,Kaiger's thinking about fucking off from the party. Everyone he meets doesn't like him because he's a dick, he has become the butt end to the party's shennanigans, he's pissed off at least one God and he's found at that the only way to defeat Demogorgon is divine intervention. The last one just is making Kaiger have some introspection about his actions and how at the end they didn't seem to matter. He has to rely on a god lost his sacred sword and left it for a harpy to hoard and an ayy lmao who seems to beyond human comprehension and wants to spread weed throughout the land. So once the main threat is dealt with I think might retire from adventuring all together.

Umm... death? Either that or really forcing himself to settle down in one place. He doesn't like being in the same place for too long, he runs out of things to explore and starts feeling like a some kind of semi-useless housepet.

Sigmund's village was burned down by a marauding Red Dragon, and from survivors he discovered his Changeling daughter, Adelina, went missing. He has now dedicated his life to finding her, finding his estranged wood-wife, and destroying those who tore his old life away from him.

>What could cause your OC to stop? What's their limit?

Finding Adelina, helping Aomeda and killing Nagaroth the Red Wyrm and Arasandra the Black. Sigmund has made it explicitly clear throughout the campaign that he's perfectly happy with dropping his life as a successful monster hunter if it means settling down with his family; Sigmund is good at killing, but it's not something he *wants* to do.

Fucking feud. Fucking Dad. FUCKING ELVES. Approximately in that order.

>What could cause your OC to stop? What's their limit?
I'd say 'death or crippling injury', but neither seemed to stick. He even survived game death to make an NPC appearance in my wife's campaign as basically Vampire Corvo.

Name: Danielle Hayn

Role: Thrall master and illusionist

Goals: Danielle was raised from death by an as-of-yet unknown force that left her with instructions describing how to locate her young great-great-grand-daughter who had been taken by a slave trade ring.

Danielle has set out to find and rescue her family, as well as shut down the slavers.

Traits: Her body is in a state of half-decay, but as long as she continually uses some of the power she was imbued with by her benefactor, she can hide this grotesque appearance.

She's quick to sass-mouth, and loves to form complicated plans unnecessarily that show off her necromantic prowess.

Flaws: Mostly the last half of the prior answer. Additionally, she is a bit "out of time", having died a few generations ago and having to get used to new things she was largely unfamiliar with in life.

About to play her for the first time soon, hopefully.

Josh's call to adventure was when he went to investigate a missing cop down at the marina. While he and Q were there, they were attacked by a spirit. Instead of doing the rational thing and running away, they started to beat the crap out of it.
>What could cause your character to stop stop? What's their limit?
Josh actually knows his limit, and he's trying to avoid it. He's received visions of a future where all his friends died, and they failed. His main motivation is to protect the people that actually got him to care, and if he can't save them, or protect them? What's the point then?

>What was you OC's call to adventure? Why does s/he do what s/he does?
Irya has been long been adventuring since her early youth due to a rather bad history involving her parents being wanted criminals + her herself having used alchemy/magic to burn down part of a town at a later point out of revenge.

Then it became easy, fun, and the best way to get new knowledge.
>What could cause your OC to stop? What's their limit?
If her current body reaches its limit, be it by age, injury, or other means, she'll stop and simply live her years as a scholar and writing her notes down. The other alternative would be a more powerful being hunting her down - she'd hunker down ASAP. Irya's limit is usually an unfixable injury to a major limb or otherwise major damage/aging.

Just means it's time to wait for her passing (or 'artificially' accelerate it) so she can continue on her travels.

• Name: Agatha the Chronicler (birth name Rulfim)

• Role(s): Fighter/basic magic

• Goals: Catalog any historical happenings/bring back any historical documents to her patron Library

• Traits: Inquisitive, and intelligent. Frequently will only speak her opinion if asked, otherwise she likes to observe and record.

• Flaws: Poor social skills. Desperately wants to prove herself to the Library she works for. Will do most anything if it means her peers in the Library will accept her as a competant librarian, and will lie, cheat and steal her way to their acceptance.

• Allies: The Grand Library (Fantasy Library of Alexandria mixed with Wikipedia)

• Enemies: Other Half-Orcs. She has a bit of self loathing for her kind, and sees them as barbaric, and a bit of an embarrassment. She sees her genealogy as a hindrance, and the sole reason why few scholars take her seriously.

• Other Relations: Has a mutual respect to the party leader. Finds him brave and willing to do most anything to get the job done.

• Physical Description: A tall half-orc with braided hair. Wears light armor, and wields a silver sword.

While she has a very solid understanding of the theory side of magic, she is not as well practiced in using magic. She functions as a good all around party member. Because of her time in the Library, she knows a bit of everything, and has an enchanted book that lets her write directly to a scribe inside the library (once a day) for help answering a question.

About 40ish years worth of progression. The most major change from her time being alive is societal attitude towards necromancy. The stigma from before is not as prevalent, and it is used more frequently by licensed mages for medical procedures and the benefit of the wealthy.

While any historical or magical texts are part of her "to pick-up" list, she especially favors first editions of books, regardless of their subject material. They incredibly valuable within the Library and bringing first editions back reflect well on her.
As for a specific book, she is searching for the untranslated version of a book of songs to give to her mentor as a gift.

As for magic style, she focused on the Abjuration school of magic to protect herself.

I was being tongue in cheek there; he is young, rich and irresponsible and wants to live the high life for as long as possible before responsibilities catch up with him.

The fame of being the handsome, "cool" face of royalty and being a war hero has gone to his head.
