Garandros Aldor

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.

 

Games of Middle Earth

21 April 2017 - 03:59 AM

I thought this probably deserved its own topic rather than derailing the news thread (again). I am really hyped for Shadow of War so I've started looking back at some of the other games set in Middle Earth.

 

Did anyone ever play this game?

The story behind this was very strange, as it came out around the same time as the film but they didn't have the rights to the film so it's completely based on the books and has its own character designs and art style.


Minfig Contest- Garandros: The Fallen Venator

The Venator code states that once a man is half beast is no longer a man.He is dead.

A talented Venator, Garandros believes this more than most. 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.

 

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.


Lego Kanan Jarrus (Season 3)

I make no secret of my complete change of opinion on Star Wars Rebels, having gone from preview hater to full on fanatic. Based on the trailer for Season 3 I've thrown together a moc of Kanan's new look.

I love this new look (and all the new character designs to be honest!)
