Yes, but you get to be level FOUR. (Everyone else is level 3). Prisoners get to roll their stats and a bonus feat, Staff get an uncommon magic item and use point-buy. I'm just playing with the concept of balance, for my own amusement.
Yes. But there's also that 8...
Still, will do, for your own amusement.

I'm thinking more of a roped in unofficial staff wizard (guest build). Although, with wizards not 1st level, I always have to ask if they have any access to spells beyond the minimum for the wizard class.

For approval:
  • Goblin chosen as a language, unless there are other groups of known humanoids around, in which case he'll take that. (are there local raiders, perhaps?)
  • some subs in the background. Leatherworking taken, though I was thinking about a Scrimshaw kit.
  • Hermit background taken. Open to suggestions for discovery. Perhaps he knows a summery glen magically hidden amidst the ice, or a lost tribe. But I'm open for anything, or somethign TBD.
  • Still thinking about Primal Savagery (XGTE) as a cantrip. Might take something else.


Doc Halfhand.
NG Goliath Druid 4
d9p5tby-27a7778b-6d86-4b35-be1a-7f02320ae6c9.png

Doc has been coming here for ages, it seems, always helping when the weather turns rough and the food is short. All the prisoners grumble when they’re only given a berry to eat, but when doc’s around no one gets frostbite, and if they’re sick he usually has them on their feet the next day. Doc’s a quiet one, for sure, and he never explains how he lost those three fingers. Some say they were eaten by one of the mountain creatures. Others say they broke off in the cold before he learned how to heal that sort of thing. Some even say he served a spell here, but no one still alive remembers him as a prisoner, or they don’t admit it if they do. What motivates him, and why the Warden lets him into the cells, and where he goes when he's not here, no one here knows.

For those of you working on Prisoners, here's what RotFM has to say about what kind of folk are locked up there:

"To be imprisoned in Revel’s End, one must have committed a serious crime against one or more members of the Lords' Alliance and been sentenced to a lengthy period of incarceration (typically a year or more). Moreover, the offender must have political connections that make incarceration in another facility less dependable. Captured spies, for example, are often brought here to cool their heels."

I guess while I'm sharing that, I'll share who works there (aside from guards, kitchen staff, maintenance, and medical:

"Each member of the Lords’ Alliance assigns one representative to Revel’s End, and together they form a parole committee called the Absolution Council. Rarely are all ten council members present, since Revel’s End offers little in the way of comfort and amenities. If the council needs a tie-breaking vote to determine whether to commute a prisoner’s sentence, the prison warden—a neutral arbiter with no ties to any Lords’ Alliance member—casts the deciding vote."

(The Warden and senior members of the Absolution Council will be NPCs, but if you chose "staff" you will most likely be a member of the Absolution Council. Though we could make you a guard or other staff if you prefer.)
 

Ok I am fleshing out my concept.

My character is the illegitimate son of a very prestigious noble family. Not just illegitimate but he was also plane touched. His father couldn't have the scandal so he banished his mother and him from the kingdom. They had to scrape by to survive.

He became a pirate and specifically targets his father's ships as a form of revenge for what he did. Eventually he is caught and thrown into the prison to make him go away.

...at least you can drop the 6. That's pretty much the array left, isn't it? Not as bad as it looks. Not great, either.
Just about, the array has a 12 instead of an 11.
It's extra funny considering the last character I rolled up here also ended up with basically the standard array.

Anyway, here is the basic overview for the guy.

I can transfer over to a proper forum thread when we are ready.
 

JustinCase

the magical equivalent to the number zero
So here are my rolls:

Stats Blizzard at Revels End:
4D6.HIGH(3) = [3, 1, 3, 6] = 12
4D6.HIGH(3) = [2, 5, 4, 1] = 11
4D6.HIGH(3) = [6, 3, 5, 1] = 14
4D6.HIGH(3) = [5, 3, 1, 6] = 14
4D6.HIGH(3) = [4, 2, 4, 3] = 11
4D6.HIGH(3) = [5, 2, 4, 3] = 12
4D6.HIGH(3) = [2, 5, 2, 5] = 12

So not bad, but not great either. But with the bonus feat from v-human, I can get a stat to 16, so that works.

So (before adjustments) I’ve got 14, 14, 12, 12, 12, 11. I’m happy!

I’ll probably need a few days to finish the character, as I’m on holiday and only have my mobile. Do you have a deadline for finished characters yet?

Hey, I’d love to join.

I have a couple of ideas: Goliath barbarian, perhaps from the same tribe as Kobold Stew’a character, folk hero.

Another idea is a Goliath or hill dwarf tempest cleric, folk hero.

Any preference?
Cheers,

Sg

That's funny, my two builds for my pirate are a Storm Herald barbarian or a tempest cleric. Was leaning towards the cleric.
 


im fine with a barbarian. Here are my rolls. I’m thinking that perhaps I’ll make him a Dragonborn for the dragon fear feat. Could be fun ;-)
Cheers, sg

Only prisoners get to roll, so I guess you're a prisoner? That's a lot of prisoners so far, but that's okay, I guess. I knew the idea would be enticing.

So (before adjustments) I’ve got 14, 14, 12, 12, 12, 11. I’m happy!

I’ll probably need a few days to finish the character, as I’m on holiday and only have my mobile. Do you have a deadline for finished characters yet?

Looks like you got a well-rounded "master of none". No deadline, just whenever the majority are ready. Take your time (within reason).

Do you have space for one more?

I don't even need to be a prisoner.

EDIT- assign me to a group, and I can make a character.
 

Let's see what we're looking at:

Sure. I will absolutely cap at 8. I believe you count as #7. Give me somebody on-staff,just for variety sake. You get to use point-buy and pick an uncommon magic item, too.
