Congrats Dalton and to everyone, I thought the standard of entries was incredibly high!


#484465 Garandros Aldor

Posted by Sephsekla on 24 May 2017 - 01:58 AM

Garandros

Full Name: Garandros Aldor
Aliases:

Sex: Male
Race: Werewolf (Nordling/Achaean)
Birthplace: Castle Greywatch

Affinity: Earth
Deity: Hades
Faction: Venatori (but presumed dead)


Talents: 

Intimidation
Monster Lore
Survival
Death seeker (strength) - You don't fear death, instead it is welcomed. Far less cautious than the martial combatant, you throw yourself into battle with one aim: to take down the opponent. If given the choice between saving yourself an injury and striking the killing blow there is no choice at all.


Attributes
Strength: 9 +2 =11
Agility: 5 +2 = 7
Constitution: 8 +2 = 10
Perception: 8 +3 =11
Intelligence: 5
Spirit: 5
Luck: 2


Appearance:

Grizzled and unkempt, Garandros makes for an intimidating figure. His deeply scarred face is half concealed by an eyepatch and flanked by grey hair cropped at jaw level and tucked behind his ears.

He wears scuffed and gouged leather armour that would make an armourer weep, with the odd metal plate strapped to it in places. His cloak (if it can be called that) is mere blue rags, pinned to him by a Venator brooch, the one thing about him that gleams.

Inventory:

(Altered Venator pack)

1 set of leather armor

1 set of simple clothing

1 steel claymore

1 crossbow

20 iron-headed crossbow bolts

5 silver-headed crossbow bolts

1 silver headed spear, with short shaft of 4 and a half feet

1 blue cloak (ripped and shredded)

1 silver Venator brooch

Flint and tinder

Potion supplies

3 clean bandages

2 healing ointment

2 sense-enhancing potions

1 strength-enhancing potion

Water and rations


Biography:

Garandros Aldor never met his parents. His mother, a Venator, returned to Castle Greywatch pregnant, her partner (and Garandros' father) dead. She died in childbirth a few months later.

Garandros was raised as an unquestioning Venator, his career distinguished. He never faltered in his duty. Until he did.
When the woman he loved was afflicted with lycanthropy he could not bring himself to strike the killing blow. The hundreds killed in the local villages over the next few days are a burden he carries to this day.

 

Eventually he found his love again in wolf form, and the two fought tooth and nail. The Venator order would call this more than unwise, but Garandros was resolute. He would kill a werewolf. But he would not kill her in human form. He couldn't look into those eyes again.

 

Having done the deed and made things right, Garandros passed out. Chewed up, bitten and bloody, he welcomed the end. But the end did not come.

Cursed by the very thing he swore to fight, Garandros considers himself a dead man. He welcomes death but is far too skilled to go quietly. Instead he uses the skills granted to him by his curse to fight the monsters of the world in an even more reckless and dangerous manner.

Garandros is under no illusions. He is a monster himself and returning to Castle Greywatch is no longer an option. Better to make his own way until he can welcome death as a friend.

Campaign History:

Relationships: Garandros once had a good relationship with the Venatori, but has not been back since becoming a werewolf. He believes that they think him dead.

Currency:

18 gold

45 copper.

 



#484437 HELP - Special Permission

Posted by Sephsekla on 21 May 2017 - 08:18 AM

 
Eyyyy! I'll get on that. ^^
 
Yeeaah, I had a similar idea, but I also feel that's a bit too particular for Errant. I'll probably make a bard sooner than later and see if specifying is too hard or not.

Though with classifying stuff in mind, I figure the specialization list could run thusly:
Dancing (Automatic with Acrobatics)
Oratory (Automatic with Education)
Acting/Comedy (potentially singing could be added on here?)
Singing
Wind Instruments
Percussion Instruments
String Instruments
Keyboard Instruments


I'd love to make a bard character myself if you feel like creating a musical troupe.


#484436 HELP - Special Permission

Posted by Sephsekla on 21 May 2017 - 04:15 AM

 
Interesting talent. So, I take it, it's essentially... Martial Combat with a death wish? :P
 
A silver-headed mace would be very expensive and unconventional (even by way of silver weaponry), but your choice.
 
For what purpose, exactly? I ask, because that wouldn't hold a werewolf, if that's the intention...
 
I really like the character (I especially love the way you described his physical appearance), and I'm certainly not saying no, but I do have to say... it'd be very, very unintelligent for any Venator to hunt a werewolf at night. Knowingly going after a werewolf at night is pretty much like committing suicide, which the Venatori would know best of all. If he were to take her down one-on-one when she was transformed at all, it's likely she was only partially transformed, not fully. Even then, he'd have to be both very foolish and very lucky to go after her alone (there's a very good reason Venatori always work in pairs) and actually kill her, even if he almost died, himself.
Just pointing out nitpicks. :P
 
Those are mostly just comments, and I'd like a little clarification on the things I mentioned. :P Otherwise, though, sounds great. Feel free to make a character sheet thread for him and I'll reply with his currency.

In my mind's eye Martial Combat feels like Dark Souls' combat, powerful but measured. I wanted to reflect something with very little finesse but unflinching pressing of the attack. But if you think it's slightly pointless as a new talent I'll happily go with Martial Combat.

The mace was chosen as something to keep the silver a safe distance away from Garandros' hands given thee danger it poses, although again happy to change if you think it's a bit odd.

Darn, you got me with the chain. My idea was he would use it to try and restrain his wolf form at the full moon (when he knew a transformation was definitely coming), but I may have to scrap that entirely.


I might be being stupid but I can't see that I've put reference to a night time hunt anywhere. Regardless, going after her solo was definitely a foolish decision, but it can he assumed he wasn't thinking clearly at all based in the circumstances.

In happy to amend the backstory to include some others in the hunt though.

To be honest all of these sound brilliant.




#484242 Custom Minifig Resources

Posted by Sephsekla on 08 May 2017 - 12:04 AM

Great idea!

I'll add a couple:

https://www.brickforge.com

Brickforge make some excellent accessories for fantasy, modern day and sci-fi.

http://www.firestartoys.com

Firestar Toys is a UK based reseller of pretty much all of the above companies. A pretty good one to go for it you've got a mix of different companies' products you want to get and you're based over here.


#484220 Scorp's RPG Corner - Tormenting in Obscurity

If this lives up to what they're promising it could be the greatest game of all time. And they have Star Wars Galaxies staff.

 

Alas, if only I could afford to drop $500 on a lifetime subscription for a game that may never be made or may be terrible.




#484179 Next Errant Campaign

Posted by Sephsekla on 28 April 2017 - 01:42 AM

Very excited  to see this, I always felt like I'd missed the boat with Errant.

 

My opinions aren't particularly strong either way on any of the options really, I'd just lean towards openness and fewer restrictions to encourage the creative people of SSLF to go wild with their character creation. Although I'd say a few restrictions are best to ensure things don't get silly.

 

In my experience it's best to have all the character creation / lore stuff sorted first or it can become a right pain later on when people have to adjust their existing characters.

 

Happy to bring back Team Caiden (although that's nothing to do with me), although that might mean I can't RP as my minifig contest entry as Caiden would probably kill him on sight.




#484154 Metal Gear Solid: Some day you'll feed on a microtransaction

Posted by Sephsekla on 25 April 2017 - 02:13 AM

I've been replaying MGSV from scratch on account of getting a PS4. I swear this game is at its most enjoyable right at the start.

 

  • No Quiet that will scout every outpost and shoot everyone for you buddies except a horse
  • Realistic equipment
  • No headshotting everyone with a tranq from half a mile away

I'm actually having to play the game and be skillful and I love it so much.




#484119 The "What are you currently reading" thread.

Posted by Sephsekla on 22 April 2017 - 10:19 AM

I've finally got round to starting on the Silmarillion, and I'm very excited about it. I've always loved universes with deeply thought out lore and I don't think anything really beats it.

It's a beautiful 1977 edition I inherited from my late grandfather, which only makes it more of an experience.

Can't wait.




#483914 Dalton's Assorted Artwork and Random Stuff

Posted by Sephsekla on 11 April 2017 - 03:03 AM

PS: Hope you like the decals of that Maul outfit I made for ya. I'd love to see the finished minifig if you've made one. :)

 

:jawdrop: Is it poor form to steal another member's commission?

 

Awesome drawing Dalton, Rebels Maul is the best Maul. Nox looks amazing too!




#483912 What Are You Currently Playing?

Posted by Sephsekla on 11 April 2017 - 01:06 AM

I've just got a PS4 so now I have the joy of getting excited about playing years old games.

 

So.. to start.

 

Have you guys heard of the Witcher 3? Amazing game. I love everything about it so far (except Geralt keeps trying to wander off when I want him to interact with things). :lego_grin:
