    Well done! I like it!

    We can bring an interesting touch to the game too, by having the people native to this new area have different gods, different traditions. Then there'll be missionaries and evangelists coming down to convert the heathens...by hook or by crook, as need be...

    @jkason, sure, I think it could work.

    @Axel, yes, welcome aboard.

    @Shayuri, will do - I'll put details in the first post.

    Yay! Thanks!

    Are we using Traits?

    And do we add our Con Modifier to our hit dice? Or is that replaced by adding our Con scores?

    Male Half-orc Ranger (favoured class)
    Str 18 Dex 14 Con 15 Int 9 Wis 13 Cha 7
    Traits Outcast, Highlander
    Skills (incl. FC bonus for level 1 and 2) - ranks only. Climb +2, Handle Animal +2, Knowledge (Geography) +1, Knowledge (Nature) +2, Perception +1, Stealth +2, Survival +2

    LvL 1 Deepsight (120' darkvision)
    Ranger 2: Two weapon fighting

    Favoured enemy: Fey

    General background:

    The nomadic Orcish tribes of the region have been in conflict with the Fey creatures for generations. Like most conflicts, the problem centers around food. The Orcs claim first priority to the best hunting grounds and use their numbers and sheer physical size to enforce their claims as widely as possible. The Fey counter with stealth, cunning and magic. The comparatively recent intrusion of human settlers and a new set of problems have done little to change things.

    Sh'aah has been, and always will be, ugly, a bastard and an ugly bastard - generally in that order. The product of an unwilling coupling during an Orc raid on a human settlement, he was raised by his human family only as long as it took for him to learn to walk.

    Forced to live on the margins of human society and fight tooth, tusk and nail for every scrap of comfort, he has learned to use his size to advantage over other humans. Survivial was tough, but Sh'aah was a fighter. Once he reached adolescence, Sh'aah took to wandering the untracked wild foothills - removing himself from the constant judgement of his racial forebears. He didn't realise how dangerous a place it was (and still is), and was nearly killed by a hunting pack of fey creatures that mistook him for an Orc tribal.

    Left bleeding and unconscious, presumed dead, he was found by a group that called themselves the Wardens of the Midnight Sun. The Wardens were an old, loosely defined group, not aligned to either of the old factions and dedicated to preventing an all-out racial war. They realised that occasional conflicts kept the numbers down on both sides, which only benifited the region as a whole. Provided neither Fey nor Orcs ever unified under a single leader, the status quo could continue. Lethal action to remove potential leaders on both sides early was a necessary evil - to prevent the greater evil.

    Sh'aa was raised by the Wardens, who taught him more in a few years of practical experience than he had ever learned fending for himself. He has not forgotten his treatment at the hands of the Fey, and is not shy of killing any that are unwary enough to cross his path. Sh'aa became a capable hunter, living on the margins of human society and spending long stretches of time alone in the wilderness or on "business trips" with the Wardens. He prefers to act at night - his Orcish heritage and long periods of time in solitude at night have finely honed his natural darkvision.

    Keen to gain any form of the luxuries enjoyed by humans, or the reputation enjoyed by the Orcish tribes, Sh'aah leaped at the opportunity to become a guide and tracker for the newly arrived - and wealthy looking - humans.

    Background: For more generations than they can count, Sangues have stood guardian to the safety of The House of Dulat. Bastian grew up regaled with the tales of noble ancestors who sacrificed their lives for Dulat honor. His father, Leonine, had been the head of the house guard, personal bodyguard of Lord Dulat. One day, he was told, if he worked hard enough, Bastian might find similar glory for himself, protecting the heirs to the family title.

    He began his training as a squire as soon as he could. Bastian worked hard and showed promise, but before he could pass the final test and receive his commission and his mount, Dulat's enemies struck. With what little warning he had before the raid of the manor, Bastian's father ordered him to do what none of the stories of Sangue's past ever called for: flee. The young man objected, ready to fight alongside his father to the end, but Leonine charged his son with the safety of the only absent Dulat heir, Arcata. As much shame as Bastian felt for sneaking away from the battle before it had begun, he knew he could not forsake his duty.

    It has been a much harder life since then, as Bastian learned that subterfuge was just as necessary as strength of arms in the protection of his charge. But the House of Dulat must endure, and as the last living Sangue, Bastian was prepared to do what he must to fulfill his duty.
