My apologies, it seems I don't have the patience for a pbp. Please have fun :D
To be fair, we have been delayed to start (partly because players haven't rushed to get their characters in and partly because I'm not done my current PBP. It will move faster once we get going. Still, it IS slow as hell (and usually slows down after an initial burst), so if you're concerned that you will find it too slow - you probably will.

Speaking of which, we should get started soonish. Can I get @VLAD the Destroyer and @Steve Gorak to try to get your characters together soon? (I know I said I'd start when Candlekeep wraps up, and it hasn't yet, but we can overlap a little). I'd like to go before any more players get bored of waiting.

Oh, and @gnarlygninja You need to finish William (and I need a picture).

Working on it now. Hopefully have it done today.

Also working on it. My big hesitation is to go echo knight 5 or EK3/ ranger 2. I’ll likely go full 5 on EK.
Aside from that, I want to reskin the echo: I want it to be fey portals, this way, my character learned from fey how to bend reality. No mechanical difference, just different flavor.
Half drow half wood elf (drow stats), EK5, likely tough, skilled or magic initiate for level 1 bonus feat and sharpshooter level 4 feat. Focused or archery. Chain shirt for armor (to be stealthy).
Proficient in carpenter’s tools, currently running gigs on ships.
Haven’t decided for a male or female character (it’ll likely be a coin toss).
Advice & opinions are welcome.
Cheers,

Sg

That all sounds great to me. So you mean, the "echoes" would be summoned fey come to help you out? I'm okay with that.

No, actually, the echoes would be shimmering portals that would allow my character to teleport, or to do some attacks. Exactly as per the echo knight description, but the ability would be fey in origin, rather than an understanding of space-time.
I’m also hesitating to have the character be a fairy vs an elf. Still deciding that one.
Cheers,

Added my character to the RG. I need a character picture. I am also making small tweaks to the sheet. I also took Find Familiar as one of my Rituals. Was wondering if I could use the Flying Monkey from ToA as my familiar? It just fits the Sailor vibe.

I posted my character, with picture. I changed my mind about echo knight (my character was boring me and we hadn't even started!), and decided to go with something I've never tried before: an artificer. I love all the decisions! Anyways, It`s 90% complete. Just need to create the background, wrap up the spells and firm up the feats. His justification for being in the harbor is that he makes and fixes ships. I'll write something better soonish.
Cheers,

SG.

@gnarlygninja may I suggest this picture. It's not exactly a longsword, but he's got a STR 18!

I think this is legal (The weapons on the image are all wrong)

Delphne Brookesbed

Back Story
Delphne (DEL Fnee) Brookesbed grew up in a wooded area she does not remember. She found herself in [the big city] one morning with no memory of how she got there or why she could not remember. She quickly fell in with a gang of full of themselves thieves for her own protection. She discovered she was pretty good at sneaking into places and sneaking out with stuff that didn't belong to the owner of the place any more.

Overtime the group membership shifted and she drifted away. She maintains a relationship with Hagr Brightshield, a dwarf fence who also provides her access to the city thieves' guild. (Her criminal background contact.)

She has started working with a group of adventurers. Those types tend to get rich fast, or die fast. She hopes these folks will be in the former group. When asked about her past she doesn't say much. Those who know she lost her memory have never gotten a good answer for why she never went looking for her old home. She has never left [the big city] in all the years she's been there. She won't admit it but she's afraid to find out how she ended up here. She figures if she never leaves she'll never find out. While she says she doesn't remember her family, strong images of Kileil and Edemal Brookesbed are in her mind, though not their names or the name of their village. When she trances and their faces float to the top of her memory she can be seen crying in her trance.

Delphne wear a sapphire, teardrop shaped earring in her left ear. She knows it has some personal significance but does not remember what the significance is. She has a scar on her in left forearm, a straight cut from elbow to near her wrist. She remembers being told she's not allowed to use a bow and remembers the wound reopening many times as she spent time learning to fire a bow. But she does not remember who cut her or why.

Everyone ready to start? (Aside from @DragonBelow who is apparently so long past ready that it's "so long" to this game!)

I still need a couple of Icons, I think. And it would be kind of you to come up with a status bar for my round roller, which most of you (all?) should be familiar with from my other games. Ask if you're not sure what I need.
