You're welcome :D
I've actually been asked to write up backgrounds for at least one other character in the group, and this is the exact method I will be using. I might take some of my other, older characters from other campaigns and write them up this way for all to see.
Aw, man. Chali's story's got to be one of the most tragic, and well-written backgrounds I've ever read. Kudos.
I've been lurking on this thread for a while, and I'm happy to say that this has become a source of inspiration for me. Do you mind if I use a modified version of the TMB template for my own campaign? It's really helpful for me to read as a DM. Much easier to read :D
That would be a cool picture of a gnome rogue. Instead of the bells he'll just have magical orbs hanging at his hat. Orbs the he can throw with their own effects. A gas orb to create a smoke screen, another container some sort illusion etc etc. Would also give the gnome some style.
Pock "The Joker" Giblyrock
kingpin of the Forgotten Realms :D
rogue mc bard.
Loads of text
This is my original 4E character. I tend to go a little bit overboard with details, and here I did so especially in the "Five Facts" section. As someone earlier suggested, I filled out the TMB backwards, so it might be easier to read it that way. Alright, here you go...
So...do you think she's too cliched? Does she draw too much attention to herself? I know I kind of rattled on (okay, really rattled on) - would it have been much better to sketch out only the basics and let her grow more organically?
Kiah's my original fourth edition character. Any comments would be appreciated.
There's been a lot of activity and cool concepts since I posted last, but all I can bring myself to comment on is the Stray's awesome character portrait of Jack.
Was it a commission from somewhere, did a friend do it, or what? Simply put, I love the art style.
