Myrmidon (Lvl 10)
[OOC-D&D 4e: Forgotten Realms] A Paid Trip to Spellhold
In Amn, everything has a price. From assassins and slaves to art and artefacts, the nation offers an indulgence or a vice for everyone. The laws can be if you don’t have the coins to be in the proper side of things. From a Cowled Wizard of Athkatla to a simple militia man in any of the small villages of Amn, everyone has a price. Even you have a price too; this time, a very good price...Or that you thought. Athkatla is full of surprises, and when you came looking for what was promised, you only found a trap. Luckily you scaped with your life at least. As the athkatlaians says “Around every street corner and bend in the road, Amn might hold the opportunity of a lifetime—or a cutthroat waiting to end your life.” That was an example of the second one.
Now you are stuck in the capital city for a time.
What you know of the area:
22 buy points
Character Classes: I won't allow the clases of FRC. Just that. Also, no Spellscars. I want to run it as core as I can, to not mess up with the rules.
Background: I’ll like to pay attention to this particular thing. Also note that you must include your own reasons for being in Athkatla, and you particular episode with Athkatla’s finest residents. Where you set up by greedy merchant? Assaulted or robbed by the Shadow thievs? Arrested or blackmailed by Cowled Wizards? That’s up to you to decide.
Allowed material: PHB, PHB2, DMB, MM(Keep in mind that monstrous races would be in dire situations inside the capital city, if they don’t find a good way to conceal themselves).
It’s no necessary that you post an entire sheet, just a peek on background and main choices, like race class and such.

Marking interest (with a vengence)... will post more soon.
edit: Not sure on race, or a name yet... but the character is a Primal power source (either warden or druid). He is delivering an acorn (or cutting, or whatever) from his order's sacred grove, to another order in the city. He is attacked, and the sacred acorn is lost, stolen and/or destroyed.
More to Come...

Would love to play one of the primal classes (not barbarian).
Could have a connection to SeaPainter's character, More to come.
What races would you allow to be from a 'primal culture'? The races I'm most interested in are elf, shifter and dwarf.
Character Concepts, from most liked to 'least':
- Elf Druid (Primal Predator), preferring animal forms in fight, particulary ones, that blend feline and raptor aspects. Feat: Enraged Boar form
- Longtooth Shifter Warden (Wildblood)
Thornstrike, Earthshield Strike, Wildbloodfrenzy, Form of Winter's Herals
Sudden Roots feat.
- Dwarf Shaman (Protector Spirit)
Feat: Armor Proficiency (Chain)
Are you sure with 32 buy points? Method 2 on PHB p 17 uses 22.

Very disillusioned, faith in goodness worn away, wound up here working as a mercenary, tries to disguise as human, not terribly successful.
Will elaborate as I come up with more.New Sig Rules are lame, and I am cheap.

I figure that we could've been jailed during our "goodwill mission" under suspicion of possessing magic (the "sacred seed")... and even though we are later released from imprisionment, our 'whatever' is gone.Mini Stat

Okay, I'm leaning towards Avenger. This could work for Invoker if we need a controller.
I'm right now operating under the idea that my character was a servant of the now-banished Mulhorandi gods (I think Anhur is my best bet), and an guardian of the royal family. He died when Mulhorand was ripped out of the realms, but reincarnated with no clear purpose. He has nominally claimed Torm as his patron, but does not feel enthused. His last mission for Torm's church has brought him to Amn, but that failed miserably. He is now mostly aimless, working as a mercenary/bounty hunter/assassin and his morals are fading fast.
I'm imagining that he came here on a mission to prove himself to the Church of Torm, to protect someone. The person he was guarding had enemies and he was killed and I, having failed my mission, have no where to go. This is causing my aimlessness. At this point, any job will do.

For siblings:We could also be adopted siblings (dwarf and elf got some potential), or actual siblings and a gone awry reincarnation ritual.
The only FR- Dwarf Druid I know is Pikel and both the Shield and Gold dwarves are not that 'rural'.
Shifters are new, but mentioned on p 20 in the PG.
I still favor (wild) elf.Signature

Or an alternative is that the grove in Elfharrow sent you out with a Warden (either dwarf or 'forged).
Since it seems that there's a lot of people pitching defenders and no one pitching leaders, it'll probably be better to go with the shaman...Mini Stat
