Appearance: Semabin is a large and agile man, and not very muscled. His black hair is long, and he shows first signs of growing a beard. He always seems a bit dreamy, not quite in the present. Semabin prefers loose clothing in "airy" colors (such a light blue and white) that allows much freedom of movement, and considers even his light armor to be quite limiting.
Background: Semabin, son of Harudan, hails from the distant south-western land of Sairundan, a loose federation of several seminomadic tribes, supposedly founded by djinni. The tribe Semabin comes from, the Zephyr, traditionally sends promising young members onto a journey to distant lands to prove themselves if they show promise to become one of the elite warriors of Sairundan, the dervishes.
Semabin is one of these young men, and he joined a caravan to Orussus, a city where few Sairundani have traveled yet, hoping that here he can prove himself as a fighter and learn the dances of this land, to add to the deadliness of the dervish dances.
Unfortunately, at least from his perspective, the travel to Orussus has been largely calm, if not to say boring, and he hopes that the city is more exciting.
While he is certainly not stupid, Semabin is sometimes prone to act without thinking, just giving in to his whims. While following one's whims is one part of the philosophies of the Sairundani Dervishes, it should be tempered with a regard for the whims and feelings of others, something that Semabin still needs to learn.
Semabin soon embarked from the Red Dragon Inn on an adventure, in an unusual way. A wizard created a portal for the adventurers to step through, and Semabin was one of five to do so. These were Durg, Cailean, Halydin and Rogar. The wizard, Harnfal Interirion, wanted them to find and return his daughter, who he suspected to be kidnapped by orcs. The truth however was, that Annalyn ran away to marry a half-orc wizard Modar Kreel. Harnfal was not pleased by the news, and requested the adventurers to remain silent on this affair.
Shortly afterwards, he and others tried to solve the mystery of a lost gem, which turned out, after a long chase, to have been stolen. The culprit had previously been captured by bounty hunters.

Most often he can be seen wearing a worn outfit of thin leather and wool with plenty of pockets. When travelling or working he dons a well kept suit of green and russet colored studded leather worked in knotwork patterns. It has the look of armor that could be extraordinary if left in the care of a good leather worker for a few weeks.
Background: Cailean was the son of mercenary and his wife. His mother died in childbirth so he never knew her. His father, Aldren Riok, took to raising him in her absence. At first, while Cailean was an infant, Aldren signed up exclusively for caravan guard duty for the steady jobs and ease of care that wagon trains provided for an infant.
Over the years Cailean learned to read and learned the rudiments of horsemanship and woodland survival from his father and the many caravaners that he met and stayed with. Once he was old enough, near 15, he began signing on with his father as a guard himself. It was then that his father began passing on his skill with polearms to Cailean.
During a particularly hard winter some years later, jobs with caravans dried up for the two of them. They were forced to travel by themselves seeking out jobs as tavern bouncers or farm guards as they worked their way back towards a larger city. He and his father came to depend on each other for far more than just companionship and familial ties. When they finally made it back into a big city, his father was stabbed in the back and killed by a cutpurse while stabling their horses at the first inn they stopped in. After months of surviving against the odds in a cruel winter, the irony of his father's unexpected murder was not lost on Cailean.
The loss of his father was extremely hard on Cailean. He had been hardly separated from his father for an hour since his birth and now he was utterly alone. He stayed on as a tavern tough for nearly a year. Unfamiliar with grief and the lack of his life-long companion, he felt frozen to the spot. Eventually, things began to turn around for him. Days felt less and less empty, he was beginning to make friends of the Innkeeper and his family, he found himself smiling again. He also found himself with enough money to outfit himself and begin travelling again.
He has been doing so for the last 4 years, still plying his trade as a caravan guard and polearm for hire. Just now he's found himself on the road a bit far from supplies and is trotting his horse up to the Red Dragon Inn, a day past his last rations....

Background: Like many dwarven youths, young Rogar Flowstone was introduced to the art of combat at during his childhood, and immediately came to love it. Naturally strong and as tough as any dwarf has ever been, Rogar excelled at it, taking the heavy mace as his weapon of choice as he prepared to become the next in a long family history of dwarven fighters. The gods had another calling in mind for young Rogar, however; when a human priest of Grendath visited the dwarven settlement for a month-long rest stop during a pilgramage, Rogar was immediately taken with the man, who, despite his human frailty, could out-wrestle, out-fight, and out-class all but the most experienced dwarven warriors. The man's excitable, let-the-gods-decide attitude struck a chord with the rebellious young dwarf, and when the cleric left, he had a new apprentice at his side.
With his loud, almost obnoxious nature, it took Rogar several years to fully gain the trust of Grendath's priests, and even longer to manifest Grendath's power. The priests had patience, however, admiring the dwarf's enthusiastic participation in combat, and the sturdy resilience common to his kind. At the relatively young age of 89, after a decade of training, Rogar became a full-fledged cleric of Grendath, and set out into the world to seek glory, but, more importantly, to help others seek it as well. Mounted upon his faithfull mule, Maurice, Rogar made his way to the Red Dragon Inn, reputed home of many adventurers, and as good a place as any to begin his adventuring career.

Background: Loskradís dark attire often betrays his personality. Heís not particularly outgoing or gregarious, in fact heís rather socially inept and quiet around those he isnít familiar with, but by no means is he ďdarkĒ or ďbrooding.Ē To those who know him he is very friendly, but to get close enough to know him in itself is something of an accomplishment (in other words, he has a low charisma score, ).
He comes from a smaller city with a strong tradition in arcane military, emphasizing the simultaneous perfection of the mind and body. The city hosts an academy that trains individuals from all over in this unique combination. Students often use their spells to augment their fighting abilities, rather than as a direct means of combat, though itís certainly not unheard of for them to throw fireballs every now and then. Sorcerers, especially, have a greater tendency to learn a few damaging spells to use in a pinch.
It is from this city, in this academy, that a large amount of magical arms and armor are created and traded. Magic item trade is a huge part of the cityís economy. The smiths are surpassed only by the Dwarves in their ingenuity and craftsmanship.
Loskrad displayed excellent potential and drive early in his life. He was born and raised in the city this academy is located in and has always taken great personal pride in his homeland. He was one of the smarter children growing up, though by no means the brightest. His intense commitment to achieving his goals, however, has made him one of the most extraordinary students.
Originally he was only interested in learning to use magic. Ironically, due to the rigid structure for beginners at the academy, he hasnít even gotten to that yet. Training begins with basic fighting before one can move onto magics. Every wizard and sorcerer in this school knows how to use a sword. When they are deemed ready, the fighters are taught how to wield magic. Of course, most Sorcerers learn to use their magic on their own before their basic combat training is even finished and therefore donít really face this obstacle.
At first they can only cast the simplest of spells in the most primitive ways. In time these fighter/mages throw out their component pouches and learn to cast spells with mere words (i.e., they take the eschew materials and still spell feats). Low level students tend to wear light armors so as to minimize the interference their spells suffer. The more powerful ones often prepare most, if not all spells, as their stilled versions, freeing them up to wear protective armors.
Hoping to speed up his training and prove his early worth to the academy, Loskrad has left to seek adventure and build his name in the world. Some students choose to pursue some sort of quest or adventure as a quick route to being accepted as someone deserving advanced placement into magical training. Those who survive are generally granted this honor.
Though he was originally fascinated by magic and wanted only to learn its secrets, over time he became fond of the combative arts as well. He worked hard and grew stronger, favoring the greatsword and other large, powerful weapons.

..."My parents didn't write me back for 2 weeks now so I'm going home"...
..."when I arrived the smell of blood was unbereable. Everywhere I looked, I saw bodies, I ran to my parents house as fast as I could. Before my house I saw my parents lieing on the floor dead. They had bites over there body from so kind of big creature. I went to look of anyone survived, but the whole village was slain. Everything I had was gone. Just one word went through my head "REVENGE". I first burned down the village, so everyone would rest in peace. After that I began to track down the creature responsable for this bloodbath. I only took my fasthers bow and my own belongings. And so the hunt begins"...
..."After 1/2 week I was resting. During this I was studying my fathers bow. I remeber that my father said it was an acient elven bow. It has strange marks on it. My father also told me, the marks where probably a key to magic, but because the marks were in a unknow language nobody knows what the bow does, and it's used like a normal bow"...

wears his hair very close cropped shaved on the sides to a near flat-top
with a tight short braid running between his shoulders. Green/Red/Brown
Fey scribed tribal tatoos adorn the shaved sides of his head, wrap down his neck and
cover his arms down to his hands. Halydin wears a green and brown riding
cloak over his studded leather armor which was tanned from the hide of dire
lion (treat as studded leather).
Background: Halydin was born of a Human father and elf mother who were
forced to flee from their village due to problems currently unkown to Hayladin
(DM feel free to insert RP hook here: Parents were the targets of Racial prejudice,
Father was a thief/assasin caught in guild problems etc) and were ambushed in a
great wood during their journey by a group of Gnoll Brigands. As their final
dying act Halydin's father and mother concealed their child from the rampaging
gnolls. Several days later a powerfull Druid (insert name here) found the
lost child and adopted him as his own, giving him the sylvan name Ili'g
Elortu' (the orphaned one). Over the next decade the Druid and his allies taught
Halydin the secrets of the forest. Recently the Druid was called away on urgent
Druidic Society business. Before leaving the Druid presented Halydin with a
signet ring that belonged to Halydin's dead father and explained Halydin's past.
The Druid encouraged Halydin to travel to the nearby Red Dragon inn and seek
answers to the many questions he had.

Background: Born to a humble farmer, Mintrik knew from a young age he would be a wizard. In his early teens he left home and through sheer determination, was accepted as an apprentice in the local wizard's academy. Now, four years later, he's ready to face the world. He is driven to succeed, and obtain great riches and power for himself. The life of the farmer is not for him.
Adventures: Mintrik cleared out the sewers of nasties for the new temple of Hyrag. He found Lothe, a long-trapped elven rogue, who had survived for untold years trapped in the sewers. After initially charming him, Mintrik released him to the care of Hyrag's high priest Leonard. Based on a book in Abyssal they found, Leonard believes that Lothe had been experimented on, and will look after him.
Mintrik gained 1,220 exp and 1,060 gold (or 1,200 gold, depending on final resolution of how to split the treasure.) He will be levelled to level 2 once he is approved at level 1. (Unless you'll allow me to level him up first).

When outdoor, Calamar the Dark can be seen wearing a sturdy adventurer's outfit. His only noticeable items are a simple walking staff and his backpack.
Background: Calamar the Dark is rumored to be of Drow decent because of his appearance but those that know him know that his heart has a different mission and that the unfortunate reality of his looks mask his true intent towards others. He seeks power through faith, but worships no Deity, and seeks the way of the Mystic Thurge. Power above all else is his mission but he often takes time to aid fallen companions in battle and other unfortunates, as long as they can get past his appearance.

You burn your life force to strengthen your powers.
Benefit: While manifesting a power, you can increase your effective manifester level by one, but in so doing you take 1d8 points of damage.

At 15th level, you can increase your effective manifester level by three, but you take 5d8 points of damage.
The effective increase in manifester level increases the number of power points you can expend on a single power manifestation, as well as increasing all manifester level-dependent effects, such as range, duration, and overcoming power resistance.
Normal: Your manifester level is equal to your total levels in classes that manifest powers.

Tril flicked the reins, encouraging old Doby to keep his attention focused on the road, and not the tempting flowers to its side. This may need to be Doby's last journey, thought Tril, but that's ok, these last few trips have been very rewarding, and I can afford a new mule. For that matter, I could afford to hire someone else to make the trip, he thought, but grinned to himself knowing he would never give up the road or the thrill of negotiating a trade. At least I found that necklace for Rhiannon. She's been so unhappy these last few months, she just wants a family, but the gods dont seem to agree.
As the cart came around the last few trees into a clearing, Tril was able to see Caem standing by the road. Caem, tall, blond, and with the tell-tale ears of a half-elf, all but blended into the terrain, in his browns and greens. Tril was certain he only saw Caem when Caem wanted him too, and Needle was even worse (or better).
"Needle has found signs of a caravan up ahead. Not much left, just a few women and only one guard, all dead."
"Any idea who they were?" Tril said.
"Kinda looked like tribesman, but their clothes look a little fine. Hard to be sure, especially since the carry no totems."
"Well, let's take a look, at least we can bury them."
Caem and Needle might cost him a little more than the average guards, but he never regretted it. While the tribesman would never bother to test their strength on a halfling, there were always bandits walking the edges between the tribes and civilization, and you just cant beat a pair of rangers for keeping you out of trouble. Caem walked alongside the cart and led Doby to the side as they approached the remains of the caravan.
Tril jumped down from the cart, and as he approached the bodies he caught a glimpse of Needle disappearing into the trees at the far side of the clearing. Clearly the elf wanted him to know he was scouting ahead. In the 3 years he had worked with Needle, he wasn't sure if he had heard the elf speak more than a dozen words, and most of them had been simple imperatives like "Hide" or "Wait".
Just as Caem had said, the bodies of a few men and women lay near the road. Tril and Caem dug graves, and then carefully started to lay out the bodies. As they started to pick up the third victim, a bundle rolled out from under it, and began to cry! It was a baby human, less than a year old, though neither Tril nor Caem had much experience of babies. Like the others it wore no distinguishing markings, however, it did have a tiny sword shaped birthmark on the inside of its right wrist. Not knowing what else to do Tril took the baby to his cart, while Caem finished the buriels.
Shortly, Caem had finished, and they continued on to (INSERT TOWN NAME). Tril took the baby home, hoping to find its clan or homeland. He knew the moment that Rhiannon picked up the baby, however, that he could never take it away from her. He made some desultory inquiries about the baby, but his heart just wasn't in the search. As months, and then years passed, no one came looking for the lost human baby, so Tril and Rhiannon named him Rillian, and raised him as their own.
The life of a human child raised by a halfling merchant is a difficult one, but Rillian loved his adoptive parents dearly. Fortunately, while his father taught him the art of the DEAL, trade, and how to protect your goods (they spent many nights playing who can pick the lock fastest), Uncles Caem and Needle showed him the way of weapons, stealth, and survival in the wild. Needle, suprisingly, took an especial shine to the child, and lovingly taught him the art of the bow, from curing and preparing the wood all the way to the release of the string.
Rillian is a strong, quick and agile youth, well prepared for a life of adventure. He suspects that his parents were tribesmen (read barbarians), but has no real clues to follow to track them down. He will be taking equal levels in Rogue (his starting class), Fighter and Barbarian.
