Living in self imposed isolation for countless years, Hollywood was the caretaker of the shrine of the Forestmaster. No one imposed this duty upon him, but rather he took it upon himself. Hollywood stumbled upon the ancient ruin while out hunting. How he - or any of his people - had never found this ancient grove before is a mystery, but he was grateful for the experience. Filled with a sense of serene tranquility, Hollywood dedicated his life to taking care of the grove and the shrine at its heart.

During the first few years of his guardianship, Hollywood attempted to renew interest in the ancient shrine. Despite his best efforts, it remains mostly forgotten and ignored by the elves of his homeland. Solitude became the new normal for Hollywood. When in the company of others, he frequently gets lost in his own thoughts and contemplation, often oblivious to his own surroundings. The decades of isolation have left Hollywood to take a 'Live and Let Live' attitude. Meddling in the affairs of others only causes trouble - if you can get there attention in the first place.

Hollywood still seeks the enlightenment he pursued when he first discovered the grove, and it still eludes him. However, one day during his meditations, the Forestmaster spoke to him and told him to seek out the Circle of the Moon. The Keepers of the Circle would continue his teachings and to send him out into the world to be a more active guardian of nature. However, now that he has returned to the world, Hollywood enjoys its delights a little too much.

Looks great! "Hollywood" is such a great name for a druid, I think I'm going to steal that.
Thanks! I have trouble with elven names - they often sound silly to me, like Scrabble tile names (grab a bunch of Scrabble tiles and try to make a name out of them) - fine for an NPC, but not a character I'd like to play. I wanted to lean into something 'naturey' for the wood elf and druid.

Our modern use of "Hollywood" as an adjective is just gravy which made my decision easier. :cool:

I suppose "Hol'lyw'ood" would LOOK more elven. :)

Elidred, ever since she found the gauntlets, likes to cast Mage Armor and Armor of Agathys on herself then wade right into melee with her battleaxe or her war pick (and both if/when she hits 8th level and takes the Dual Wielder feat) while surrounded by her 13 HP Arcane Ward.

Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal
So, part of this is drafting as a group for a game. So, do we have a party with decent synergy?

We have:
Judgement Demne of the Embereye, Leonin Paladin (Conquest) 4 [Urban Bounty Hunter] - Blue
Whispers Under Vines (Whisper), Tabaxi Ranger (Gloomstalker) 4 [Urban Bounty Hunter] - Fenris-77
Sampson Starkweather, Ranger 1 / Wizard (Transmuter) 3 [Folk Hero] - el-remmen
Håkan the Horrible, Trollborn (Half-Orc, reskinned) Fighter (Battlemaster) 4 [Pirate] - Mannahnin
Doc Ghoulliday, Reborn Warlock (Hexblade) 1 / Rogue (Phantom) 3, [Doomed Wastrel] - Snarf Zagyg
Hollywood, Wood Elf Druid (Circle of the Moon) 4 [Hermit] - akr71
Eridred Rubyeye, Mark of Warding Dwarf Abjuration Wizard 4 [Anthropologist] - Swarmkeeper

I think it works. We do have a preponderance towards melee, including the Wizard with Armor of Agythys and Gauntlets of Ogre Strength. Actually, we have two characters with AoA. Add in a PAM paladin and the Moon Druid with the Flametongue Scimitar for when not in beast form and we're very in-their-face.

EDIT: In the time it took to write that, both Snarf Snarf and CleverNickname ninja'd me about them as a whole party. :)

Yea, little light on the support maybe, but should do a ton of melee damage to cover for it. Looks like a fun party to me, and plenty of good RP hooks but nothing that screams "obvious party tension".

Don't be a hater just because the DM's character just happens to be better than yours in every possible way!

Every possible way?

Do you think that Sampson Starkweather can OUTDRINK Doc?

...I rest my case. Even with the DM's thumb on the scales, nothing can outdrink the Reborn. ;)
