Hello everyone and welcome to my Story Hour! This is my first long-running campaign and I hope you will all enjoy it. Before I began playing, I read other threads(from where I stole my plot hook, I admit), lores of various games et cetera, and I took the best from everything in order to create the best world and campaign I can. I hope you will enjoy reading my party's adventures. Speaking of which, here is a short description of each party member:
1. Thorunn is a female human ranger whose favored enemies are orcs. She grew up in a large and poor family which didn't find any time for her, so she escaped from home and started living in the wild. She often tries to act all tough and show no emotions, but she has a good heart.
2. Rihud is a male drow fire elemental heritage sorcerer. He spent his life wandering the deserted lands, barely surviving. He doesn't really like...well, anyone, and is in constant search for knowledge and power.
3. Azazel Evander is a male human red-haired barbarian. He grew up in a noble family, but he was never happy until the moment raiders attacked his house and took him prisoner when he was 15 years old. There he earned a great respect after a marvelous escape and the murder of their leader, for whom everyone thought was invincible. After feeling the adrenaline of the fight for the first time, he decided to join the raiders and forget his old life. It worked well for years, until one of their attacks failed....he was the only survivor.
4. Panor Kolios is a, shortly said, a pirate. Based on the iconic character captain Jack Sparrow, he lives for freedom and his ship. He is a male human wizard/fighter who reads lots of book because he went crazy out of loneliness. On one of his travels he accidentally found a book about arcane magic and started to dabble in it, even learning a few spells.
Before the campaign started, I asked my characters do they have any special character concept that they cannot achieve through normal rules, and they said yes. Thorunn said that she wanted some powers related to the wind, Rihud said that he wanted to become "Ascended", free from the bounds of flesh, a being of pure energy and power(but not elemental). Azazel told me he doesn't know what does he want, but that he always found lightning and storms fascinating. As for Panor Kolios, he is my NPC and I decided not to give him any special powers related to his character.
