#487001 Krystia Ravenswift

Posted by Sephsekla on 12 April 2018 - 01:39 PM

Krystia Ravenswift

Full Name: Krystia Ravenswift
Aliases: Pup, Newblood

Sex: Female
Race: Achaean/Wood Elf
Birthplace: Unknown

Affinity: Fire
Deity: Forseti
Faction: Venatori

Talents:
Acrobatics
Subtlety
Thievery
Finesse Combat

Attributes
Strength: 5
Agility: 8
Constitution: 5
Perception: 7
Intelligence: 6
Spirit: 7
Luck: 4

HP: 25/25

Appearance: Krystia is still very young, as other Venators enjoy reminding her. Not yet 20, she is skinny but toned. Her hair is a deep brown, cut haphazardly above the shoulders, fighting her pointed ears for prominence. A few freckles cross her face accentuate her deep green eyes. One day she might even be beautiful, if she is that long.

Inventory:


Venator Pack
1 deepsilver chain shirt
1 set of leather armor
1 set of simple clothing
1 steel short sword
1 silver dagger
1 blue cloak
1 silver Venator brooch
Flint and tinder
Potion supplies
3 clean bandages
2 healing ointment
2 sense-enhancing potions
1 strength-enhancing potion
1 anti-lycanthropy potion
Water and rations

1 tarnished Venator brooch

Biography: Krystia never met either of her parents. Her name was given to her by the old woman on whose doorstep her known history began.

The woman raised her with kindness, until she died when Krystia was still a child. Her house seized by debt collectors, Krystia was left on the streets of Illikon with only the clothes on her back and the peculiar brooch that had fastened the bundle she was found in.

Life on the streets taught many lessons, and 10 years later Krystia was a seasoned thief and a nimble fighter. A chance encounter with a venator passing through changed everything.

Throwing caution to the wind she approached, spotting a brooch just like her own (but gleaming). Within a few weeks she'd made her way to Castle Greywatch and joined the order. Maybe at last she could find out who she was.

Krystia has been with the Venatori for 6 months now, and her lack of experience is balanced by her sheer enthusiasm and determination.

Campaign History: N/A

Relationships: A fierce crush on Caiden Voros (but she's not convinced he knows her name), partnered with Araven Karial.

Currency:


#486991 Crestwell

Posted by Sephsekla on 09 April 2018 - 11:21 AM

Crestwell

Full Name: Venirius Crestwell
Aliases: Crestwell, Broken man, Lorekeeper Crestwell

Sex: Male
Race: Human (Achaean)
Birthplace: Coronaria

Affinity: Frost
Deity: Athena
Faction: Venatori

Attributes
Strength: 1
Agility: 1
Constitution: 3
Perception: 10
Intelligence: 11
Spirit: 8
Luck: 8
 
HP: 15/15

Appearance: Crestwell has been described as a corpse that hasn't noticed he's dead yet. He's missing his right arm from the elbow, and his right leg from above the knee. A large amount of his right ear is missing, and his jaw is a different shape on one side, where the bone appears to have been set badly. Blotchy scars run across all visible flesh. White hair grows patchily on his head, and his tufty eyebrows are the one part of him that seem undamaged.
Inventory:
 

  • Venator Pack
  • 1 deepsilver chain shirt
  • 1 set of leather armor
  • 1 set of simple clothing
  • 1 steel dagger
  • 1 silver dagger
  • 1 blue cloak
  • 1 silver Venator brooch
  • Flint and tinder
  • Potion supplies
  • 3 clean bandages
  • 2 healing ointment
  • 2 sense-enhancing potions
  • 1 strength-enhancing potion
  • 1 anti-lycanthropy potion
  • Water and rations
  • Wooden crutch
 
Biography: In his youth, Crestwell was an extremely talented Venator, respected for both his martial abilities and his formidable brain. Knowledge he acquired was filed away without effort, and so he was never unsure of the best course of action when dealing with a threat.
 
Approaching his 28th birthday, Crestwell and his partner were dispatched to investigate after reports of petrification at a small village. They prepared well. After a few hours' hike, the two came across a cockatrice in the hills, and struck.
 
The two fought valiantly and dispatched the beast, but not without cost. Crestwell was petrified, and in the melee his stone form was sent flying, tumbling down the rocky cliff face. It did not shatter, but it chipped and cracked, losing pieces as it spun.
 
He would later be cured, but it was immediately clear that he would never again hunt monsters. Rather, his challenges now would be to get through each day.
 
Over the years Crestwell had found peace with his new state of being, and has stayed at Castle Greywatch. While he cannot fight, he is an invaluable source of Knowledge, and tries to keep a record of the collected lore and reports that have been put together by his more active colleagues.

#486923 An OC's Journey - Discussing Our Errant Inspirations, Influence & Growth

Posted by Sephsekla on 30 March 2018 - 04:56 AM

Well, here comes round 2 for anyone interested.

I've got a couple more characters about, but they've barely done anything yet. So I thought I'd talk about my NPCs from the Rusty Axe: Agnar, Dargnin and Yel.

I'm a big fan of stories that look at heroes after the tale is over, in their twilight years. These three have a story or two to tell, that I may get round to some day.

To create Agnar I started with the imaginatively named Skyrim character of mine, Lord Sephsekla. A warrior, bard and mage. Something of a renaissance man in a tough world.

What would someone like that look like well past his prime? Would the inevitable tragedies of life break a former hero, or would he find peace in the simple life?

My main inspirations were again, Logan, also Kvothe from the Kingkiller Chronicles. There's a tiny bit of the juxtaposition of Brando and Deniro in The Godfather Part II in there somrwhere.

Dargnin followed pretty simply. A dwarven companion, quarreling but loyal, would choose to stay with his friend, even as thr years were much kinder to him.

Yel... Is still at the beginning of any story she may have.

I'm 100% in for this once I've created a new character.

Much as I'd love to try I can't find a way for Garandros Aldor to feasibly rejoin the Venatori (without dying really quickly).

I take it she's mostly comfortable in civilized areas, or did you apply her intelligence to survival in the wilderness?
 


Oh she's definitely more at home with a hot drink in a library. I was very intrigued as to how someone with no combat knowledge whatsoever would fare.

And yes, she is adorable.

When I have time I'll post about my Rusty Axe NPCs (although I'm hoping to run a campaign centred on them at some point, so I'll redact a few things.

Posted by Sephsekla on 22 March 2018 - 02:09 PM

This is a brilliant idea, and it's awesome to see how much thought you've put in.

Like everything in life, I tend to create a lot of characters; The creation is far more exciting for me than actually playing them.

The main characters I've played in Errant proper have been Garandros and Elnira, who I consciously made very different in character and tone.

Garandros is inspired by a number of different characters and concepts. He first appeared as a minifig in a competition, so I wanted above all to create someone visually interesting. The tattered, world weary archetype is always a good way to do that. I was also very much inspired by Logan, and Wolfy's awesome story Hunted.

Elnira was envisioned as a complete opposite. She's inspired partly by a good friend of mine (who uses the word squee in sentences), but also as my idea of how a non-violent but fiercely intelligent person might fit into Wulfgard.

Honestly, I love that her parents were just random people, and I'll be devastated if that gets undone.

Rey is defined by what she does, not who her family is.


#486596 ZONE: The Rusty Axe

Posted by Sephsekla on 07 February 2018 - 12:37 PM

--------- THE NEXT DAY ----------

Agnar stretched as he opened up the tavern, an old shoulder injury giving him trouble.

A few guests from the previous night were finishing breakfast, and he was pretty sure at least one was still upstairs.

Yel was nowhere to be seen, but Dargnin sat inside, jokily flirting with a bard that had agreed to play today.

He looked out into the street of Stonebridge, which was characteristically quiet, but pleasant as always.

Who would come in today?

I'm up for anything really. I think sticking with something simpler for now might be best, just to get things rolling again.

Better movie than ROTJ, better movie than Force Awakens.

It really saddens me that you guys can't have the experience that we did watching it, I loved it from start to finish and finally found Luke to be a three dimensional character.

For real though, I'd like my "the movie is awesome shuddup" poll option.

I can't remember the last time a film polarised people quite so much, it's pretty amazing.
