    It'd fit well with the sort of untrustworthly stuff people think of when they think of Verity.
    maybe I should just submit and see, hm?

    Verity Thromble

    Stats roll (or.... IC must have felt bad about the last one...)


    4d6 → [2,6,5,5]
    4d6 → [2,4,3,1]
    4d6 → [1,4,1,3]
    4d6 → [6,5,6,6]
    4d6 → [2,2,6,5]
    4d6 → [4,2,5,2]


    Rerolling 3 1s

    1d6 → [1] = (1)
    1d6 → [2] = (2)
    1d6 → [3] = (3)


    One more one...
    1d6 → [3] = (3)

    4d6 → [2,6,5,5]=17
    4d6 → [2,4,3,1->1->3]=10
    4d6 → [1->2,4,1->3,3]=10
    4d6 → [6,5,6,6]=18!
    4d6 → [2,2,6,5]=13
    4d6 → [4,2,5,2]=11

    So 10,10,18,13,11,17


    Was rethinking the whole illusion magic thing, since it's a bit away from the original concept, in favor of the corrupted warrior.(i.e. a warrior tainted by fiendish power) so was going to go warlord/warlock or warlock/world, but I think we have one warlock already and another warlord/warlock.

    And I see no controllers... :/ So I'll shift gears a bit and follow the illusionist path. I can rp my magic as being a gift from the Unseen Lord, right?
    Build coming soon.

    Is it OK to say that the group (accidentally) freed Verity from the prison of his mind during an adventure where they thwarted the Unseen Lord's minions?
    And, after hiding in a monastery, getting kicked out he was tormented again by dark dreams and came to get them to help (b/c nobody else believed him).
    Doesn't have to be an important adventure for the group particularly.

    About 90% done. Still need magic items.

    Background: Verity Thronble; The famous traitor v2 (now with even more angst)

    Until 20 years ago the name Thronble was synonymous with honor, tradition and dignity. A small clan of nobles the Thronble's controlled a small keep that stood on top of a gateway to some dark realm; in the name of their grim duty the keep was called the Strongfast. They were not all religious (though the patriarch and 1st born of each generation were invariably paladins) but each and every one was (at least perceived to be) a hero of the people. Even those that weren't powerful personally usually made their mark on society in some sort of beneficial way (as a poet, or a priest at a troubled church, or fair judge, or as a wise adviser to a lord of greater standing).

    All except Verity, who excelled in nothing and seemed to have been born rotten and demanding. He didn't seem to be a Thronble at all, and his incompetence when compared to his dashing sisters and devout brothers ate into his already worm-ridden heart.
    And he would ultimately prove everyone right and betray the trust of all who believed him. For in return for the promise of power, and the chance to eclipse all of his siblings Verity betrayed his family's trust to the dark creature bound beneath their keep, the Unseen Lord.

    Now the name Thronble is synonymous with traitor of the worst sort (think "Benedict Arnold"). Verity Thronble's grasping betrayal led to the family's utter destruction and the destruction of Strongfast Keep at the hands of the Unseen Lord's reality warping magics and horrific servants; the Unseen Lord, himself betrayed Verity, but left him alive trapped in a an illusionary prision of the mind.
    For years he lived like an animal in his family's ruined keep, assaulted on all sides by illusions left behind to torment him.
    After the group freed him (only because the needed answers about the details of the assault) he was left humiliated and profoundly regretful. Only fear of where he would go when he died kept him from suicide.
    He became a monk for a time, hiding his identity, but once he used his powers to drive off an attack on the monastery he found that he understood illusionary magic and magic in general, to a degree undreamed of by any but an experienced wizard.
    It seemed that the Unseen Lord had fulfilled his part of the bargain, granting Verity the power that he once craved.
    Denied a place even among the monks he found himself wracked by visions of the Unseen Lord's attacks and went to the only people who would speak to him, the other members of the party. Convincing him of his sincerity he was ultimately instrumental in turning back some of the attacks and one a place in the party.

    Strongfast Keep
    Stood on top of the door to a plane of madness where illusion and reality mixed together (a demi-plane of chaos? the far realm?).

    For bonus points the evil lich could be the Unseen Lord, or else connected to him in some fashion (ally, servant, patron?) and the lich's destruction was supposed to be his shot at (some sort of) redemption that's now gone terribly wrong.


    20 years of selfless adventuring have done improved his reputation only sightly (he is no longer pelted with rotting food when entering a community).
    Even after his exile from the Monastery Verity continued to devote himself to the gods he once scorned; but ironically his minor divine abilities have only further underlined how far his family as fallen. By comparision the illusionary abilities granted by the Unseen Lord in payment for his treachery have grown in leaps and bounds.

    He has often been tempted to his illusionary powers to build an identity anew, but after his rejection by the monastry he's truely feels there is no place he can go. So he wears his coat of arms with the dignity that he can muster, and strives to turn the other cheek in his (probably hopeless) quest for absolution.

    He fears that this new tragedy will be laid at his feet, or equally, that it is his fault, and his sins have come home to roost yet again (what's even worse that they've affected his companions, and possibly more as well).

    Ruthaer ar'Thar

    The character
    Name: Ruthaer ar'Thar
    Race: Tiefling
    Class: (Tactical) Warlord
    Role: Leader
    Level: 6

    Appearance:
    Ruthaer ar'Thar is a brilliant and arrogant Tiefling warlord. His fearsome reputation has likened him to the 'War-Lords' of old Bael Turath.

    Background:
    Originially a young and exceptionally gifted captain of an embattled free town during the Twilight War. He quickly made his name running daring strike-missions and rose through the military ranks, respected for his tactical genius and sharp mind, but equally feared for his ruthlessness and lack of empathy. During a heated battle, he once send five score of the towns best men to a certain bloody death for a seemingly minor objective (To this day, he claims this move was decisive for the battle). His star thus shone, only in the days of war. As peace began to settle across the free towns, Ruthaer was quickly relieved from his position for more 'humane' officers.

    His renown however only grew as he took up a live of adventuring, putting his genius to winning fortunes and fame with a small group of equally gifted companions. But he always retained his cold-hearted efficience and, if anything, his presumptious pride only grew with the groups ever more daring exploits. Certain of his supreme intellect and his superiority, he dabbled with his infernal lineage to unlock hidden powers (infernal pact initiate). He wears black armour stitched from unspeakable beasts of the Shadowfell (+1 Deathcut Hide), carries an implement inscribed with infernal runes (+2 Magic Rod) and wields a crimson-tinged, tieflingforged blade that seems to delight in cruelty and pain (+2 vicious Bastardsword). For all the dire warnings of his companions that dark forces may not always bow to his rational, Ruthaer has thus far been vindicated by the success of his exploits.

    Yet, there may come change. Being struck down from his rise to glory by the encounter with the Lich, there may be chance for Ruthaer to learn that somethings are better left untouched. That some forces may not be out-witted by tactical genius. There is yet a chance, that Ruthaer may learn something akin to humility...

    Allright, I've got some time to post so I decided to update the stuff I'm DMing first.

    SO, I've decied I'm going to go with 6 party members. I'ved picked 4, I'm just trying to decide which of the others would 'mesh' best with the current four. There's a lot of interesting characters out, but I don't want to DM this with nearly a dozen PC's. Thus, I've included a list of who's in, and who's left. Those in the list, I'd appreciate it if you'd vote for who you think would be the best two additions to the team.

    Definitely In Party:
    Zweischneid: Ruthaer ar'Thar, Tiefling Warlord
    Graf: Verity Thronble, Human Wizard(Illusionist)
    Walking Dad: Ripper, Bugbear rogue
    Bialaska: Lady Keira, Human Paladin

    Will pick 2 more from the following:

    Atanatotatos: Illian Soulstorm, Half-elf Fey Warlock
    ShaggySpellsword: Sylas Dardragon, Halfling Warlock
    OutlawJT: Amintor Timon, Minotaur Ranger
    Lobo Lurker: 'Boy', Human Fighter
    SarahRequiem: Ash, Eladrin Fighter

    Albedo: Hasn't posted again since his initial post.
    Rayex/EvolutionKB: Sorry, but I'd allready closed recruitment. Maybe next time.

    Fantastic and thank you.

    Looking very much forward to this.

    It's a difficult choice to put down any votes, because I feel that all of those should be allowed to play and they all got great characters.

    I feel the role we need filled the most is ranged striker (only ranged based character we have is the Wizard, who is controller) and since the Ranger in this one is more of a two-weapon fighter, that's the 'easiest' to remove from the choices. In the end both Ilian and Sylas got great characters and it's hard to choose between them. But I guess Keira would fit in best with the Warlock with a connection to the fey, rather than the one with a connection to the infernal forces, even if she can probably cooperate with both of them. Therefore one of my votes must be on Ilian Soulstorm.

    With the ranged attacker role filled, I guess another defender would be good. Two Fighters are available for that spot. Of those two I guess I'll let my soft spot for elves make my decision and I'll put in my vote for Ash, the Eladrin Fighter, though that too is also a very difficult decision.

    Ok tough call. Anyways, hope I'm not offending anyone but here'd be my votes.

    1. 'boy' Human fighter (Lobo Lurker)
    2. Illian Soulstorm, Half-elf Warlock (Atanatotatos)


    1. I feel the party would profit hugely from another fighter, or else another tank. Both Ash (Eladrin fighter by SaraRequiem) and 'boy' (human figher by Lobo Lurker) fill the role nicely. 'boy' appeals to me with the unusual concept. Thats however a very, very tough call. Ash is a great character too.

    2. Unlike Bialaska, I have no partiality for adding a ranged or another melee striker. Illian Soulstrom appears to have the most developed background concept of the three.

    Thanks for choosing Ripper.

    About the vote:

    I would like to have a minotaur in the group, just because it would be fun having a group, with two 'monsters' scouting

    On the other side do we really lack in the ranged department...

    As most warlock powers I know have only a reach of ten squares, I don't really see a good solution for this.

    Perhaps we should take another defender and rush enemy attilery.

    If I have to give names:
    OutlawJT: Amintor Timon, Minotaur Ranger
    SarahRequiem: Ash, Eladrin Fighter (just choose the female character, Lobo's character is also fine)
