Scarf
Needs more scarf!

Everything looks okay at first glance with one exception: I have a question in regards to the Speed you have listed. It's set at 35, but 30 feet is the default for elves.
Was this a typo or did I just miss where he got the bonus?
Thanks.

He's called scarf because he wears a headscarf. :lol:

His subtype is technically Wood Elf, and they have a feature which makes them a little bit quicker. I simply refer to him as a Desert Elf as we're sticking to core.
Fleet of Foot
Your base walking speed increases to 35 feet.

Ah, neat.
Of course now I have the urge to see how fast I can make a character... I'm sure the PCs would in no way be annoyed by a character they can't quite catch up to. ;~)

Big update for Jade. Mostly just need to insert a few flavor details and her combat details, but largely done.

Is there enough niche protection between a (half)orc mounted raider and a dwarven bar brawler? Both being barbarians?
Just noticed this.

It's probably more up to Arkrite on this one. It's only 4 characters for the party, so he'll probably prefer them as diverse as possible.

That said, I don't really mind. I haven't given too much thought to progression since this might be a one-shot sort of deal down an adventure path only going to level 3-4. But Barbarians before level 3 are really only different in their weapon loadout and personal characteristics. Mechanically they are basically the same.

I did get the feeling that it seems as though a lot of us all wanted to try rolling up somw materials out of coincidence. Might have to go reroll as a wizard or something if that keeps up. ;)

I assume you meant "martials"? :P

I mainly just picked something I figured would be fun to play in the early levels without worrying too much about post-early-level since we may not play that far.

Yes, I did mean martials. Phone isnt familiar with gaming terms at all...

I picked out Scarf, as literally the first thing that came to mind when I saw a new D&D game was a rough and rugged elven swordsman. Plus, I love playing fighters and barbarians.

To my understanding the game can work with a party of any type, I'd just need to modify what you guys run into to take the group into account.

So I'm not as worried about niche protection in this game as I might have been in a M&M game.

Build looks good, background is a little small.
Any personal goals or hobbies Jessica has?


Just saw the new picture on Alden's build and I have to say, those pouches are adorable :lol:


Added a list of submissions so far on the first page. Think I got everybody so far.

Since we have a rogue already submitted I think I'm going to change my entry concept.

Tiefling Bard or Sorcerer I think. Those tend to be fun.
