Gerald Longhouse is a warrior from the south. A sword for hire with very little actual experience, he has served countless jobs as caravan escort, guard duty, and treasure hunter, yet the dangers he was hired for never arose. He arrived in the north only yesterday having "protected" a supply wagon over a long, uneventful journey.

A Recent graduate of the Dragon School (no actual dragons), he realized he was flat broke and had studied the most useless subjects, he got a tip that the north had a lack of magic users and got on the cheapest trawler to the north.

Adarim
Race: Human
Class: Fighter

Stats:

Str 10
Con 8
Dex 10(8+2)
Wis 8
Int 14
Cha 13(11+2)

+1 Melee or Ranged skill
+2 Fortitude

Alignment: Rajcha
Rajcha is a God typically described as chaotic good, but both are sort of grey areas in his case. He supports justice over order and vigilantism for those who have been wronged, and guides those who have been cast out of society for such offenses. He is typically depicted as a wolf.

I'm going for an outlaw/ranger type, I'll write up backstory later. Is this otherwise good?

Saucix Leilief was sent at the age of six to the Eisgir monastery. Though his traits resembled that of a warrior's, he had a notable aptitude in clerichood.

Adarim is a man who has cast off his last name and taken on the life of a wanderer. He tries to right wrongs when he comes across them, but is never truly able to settle down. This is because he killed his father, an act to defend an innocent man from the murderous rage of a drunk. His father was the captain of the guard for the town where he lived, however, and a bounty was placed on his head immediately. Now Rajcha guides him, and his own sword and bow protect him.

The sun finally rises over Eisgir, on a clear and frozen morning in late winter. The great cathedral of Päkkaan throws a long shadow across the city, and the streets are getting busy as furdealers, tavernkeepers, toothcarvers and others open shop.

Gerald Longhouse wakes up in his cheap room at The Old Bear inn. He was laid off the day before, his employers cut down on protection due to the lack of danger. He'll have to find a new job today.

Gregor Polzin feels the musty scent of ale from The Old Bear as he walks past in the snow outside. But he's loath to spend his last coin on such luxury.

Nisos Bronzetongue glances down at the dirty beggar in the street, from the upper floor of The Old Bear. There aren't many mages in Eisgir, but there isn't much demand for them either. He has to get a job soon, or end up like the poor sod outside.

Adarim crosses the bridge over the frozen Eis river, having arrived in Eisgir just this morning. He's had a rough night. One of the more persistent bounty hunters caught up with him in the wilderness. Though Adarim prevailed, the feeling that he will always be hunted remains. He's already at the end of the world - where can he run from here? But now there's an inn up ahead. The Old Bear.

Saucix Leileif is still sleeping in his cell at the monastery of Päkkaan. And dreaming.

Saucix flies high over Eisgir. All the great buildings look tiny from up here. He heads north, and travels high above the wilderness. For a moment, he spots a huge white animal making its way through the snow. Soon he sees a large rocky outcropping. He flies down towards it. Some of the snow covering near the ground has been removed, and in the side of the rock is a large stone door. He hears the drip of melting ice.

Then there is a great fire that consumes everything

and Saucix wakes up.

Praise the sun: a new day has arisen. The proper cycle of another day has met it's logical end - and also a beginning.

Today is a day of selling my services. It is appropriate that I begin my new profession at the beginning of the day - so that the rest of the day I shall remain employed. I make my way down the stairs and await in the inn for someone to notice my gleaming sword and brilliant armor. This is the natural order for which contractors hire swords - and so I must conform. Though I have but two gold pieces left, a new job comes today, and I am at liberty to spend one on a simple meal and drink. One gold piece shall remain in my posession, should disorder arise.


Everything I say in-character's gonna be in italics from now on - it might be easier if everyone else does the same.

Adarim
Well, I'm not dead yet, thank Rajcha. I suppose I'll just find out what's going on around here...hmm...Yeah, I guess I'll look around and listen for work or rumors. I need to be financially prepared for anything.

Gerald gets a mug of ale, bread, and some salted pork. As he eats, another man comes into the inn. He doesn't look like a local. Gerald gets a vague feeling he recognizes the man's face, but can't remember from where.

An inn is as good a place as any to find work and rumors, so Adarim enters The Old Bear. There are not many customers this early. One heavily armed and armored man eats breakfast; he looks like a southerner. Two locals eat at another table. They talk in worried voices.

"After what Mother Salvegard said in her last sermon, how could anyone be calm? Watchfulness and courage... I have one, but the other I'm not so sure about."

"If I was her, that's what I would say too. I heard the fang-readers saw the Rooster upside down, and the Eastern Wind."

Damn, another near sleepless night, you'd think that that habit would wear off since I haven't needed to study for almost half a year. Ah well, I'd better drag myself downstairs and get some cheap food to calm my stomach.

I will head to the common area.

Gregor thinks:
Hmm, the morning is yet young and some of these tradesmen may remain groggy from the night's sleep. I must choose quickly and carefully, though...the cold wind brightens their eyes with each passing minute and the streets have not quite reached their full congestion, leaving me somewhat exposed to wary eyes. Step lively, Gregor, or you'll be skipping breakfast and you'll have to wait for the lunch rush.

Gregor acts:
I look around for a groggy mark with a solid purse to pickpocket. If I find one, I'm going for it.

I'll do the in character italics as well, leaving plain text only for "table talk."

Nisos heads down to the inn's common room and buys himself some breakfast. He sees two foreigners, both look like warriors, as well as two local citizens.

Out in the street, Gregor spots a merchant coughing and walking heavily. Looks like he's up too early after too long a night. Gregor tails him. When the opportunity comes, he reaches out for the man's purse...

Rolled 18+1 vs. Ref

...and plucks it quietly and efficiently. Later examining his plunder, he finds 11 gold pieces and a pair of knucklebone dice.

Saucix gets dressed for the day, putting on his robes, and leaving his sword, bow and armour behind. He then leaves his cell to get some breakfast.
