Rory is 21 when the desperate brigands(I just think that word suits them, it has a seaworthy air about it, and I removed any mention of pirates) attack his village. A total of 15 months pass to the present, and now he is 23.

When you say they steal a hlaalu ship, do you mean to say that these people are from further inland and came to the village with the intent to steal a ship from the settlement? Or, do you mean that the ship was already commandeered, and they decide to make a quick stop at Rory's home? I have it set up to reflect the latter at present.

If you could come up with a plausible explanation or something other than active military duty(something that would allow time off for over a year), I'm all ears.

Also, at this point, Rory isn't taking any jobs that require purchase of armor or weapons. Would it be alright if he acquired a hunting knife? Also, I appreciate your level of patience with this.

What probably was meant is that these people were a band of plunderers (which is the exact meaning of 'brigands') that panicked and, despite not being sailors, stole a ship in order to escape the island. A 'sea brigand' is what we call pirates, but these fellas are just so desperate they didn't think in a longer term than get away from the 'apocalypse'.

Okay so. First: Vesayen Lassel was not aware there was a 'rest of the world' until quite recently. I'm willing to allow a player to play a human from Vesayen but the lore/backstory requirement is that they pretty much just got to the mainland, like... within the last week as of 'now'. So however you want to do that, but I'm afraid I'm unmoving on this point.

As for what I meant about the hijacking, what Essoje said pretty much hits the nail on the head. I was assuming this happened basically just now, and these brigands who... are not really smart nor thinking straight out of fear just grabbed a ship (any ship) and went. And that didn't go well and the ship crashed and you ended up drifting to shore.

Finally, hunting knife works if that's what you want.

Oh right, I remember that being mentioned in one of your videos. Okay. Rory is 23 years old. Long story short, he ends up on a boat(headed towards the Lonely Island), shipwrecks and has to start over in Hebian-To. Other than time it takes to earn money for room and board, a local odd jobs license finder's fee, learn to read and write, and finally get robbed and spend the last of his pittance on a drink or two, no time has passed beyond that. Hopefully that's fixed.

Okay, nonseaworthy brigands it is.

Thanks, I just worked it into the backstory. After all, it's kind of difficult to beat some animals to death(they got fast feet, y'no?)
And for the most part, I'm planning on keeping my knife sheathed, brought out only when needed or to serve some purpose as a tool, or a desperate grab during combat if it requires an action point to draw.

Both linked in the signature.

This is as good a time to bring this up as ever. While I am not opposed to intra-party conflict, I've always felt there's a line that shouldn't be crossed. Where that line is varies but it comes down to my Rule 0: We're all here to have fun. So don't cross that line and we're all good.

Consolidated character sheet to be nice and neat(finishing touches), should be good to go.
Added character description for anybody who's interested.

I have to be at a wedding on the 16th(reminder: UTC-0600), my aunt's remarrying. Just an availability update, in case everyone else manages to get their characters in order by then.

Character sheet maybe

I like the backstory, first off. Full approval from the GM.
The character sheet looks quite good given the circumstances. There are a few small nits: First, you get +3 Willpower as being a White Mage, so that's your rank therein, right? Now, Willpower is governed by Wisdom, so you would add your WIS modifier to that to get your total Willpower, which (at the moment) would be 6.
Second, I know you didn't fully have room to put your whole Mana-gain formula in there but I'm going to mention it here so you can jot it down somewhere and ensure you don't forget about it in the future: (Level -1) + (INT Modifier / 2)
And that is it, just two nits. Very well done, props.

Yup. I want to be friends with everyone! (the players I mean, my character will probably go with the flow of the party).

Just one thing I want to change to my character sheet: Power Attack is replaced with Improved Grapple. Complete. Done.

Open question: Anybody know of some good music to listen to appropriate for a D&D session? Arch, I know you've stated in one of your reviews that you were listening to the game's music with your headphones on. Any thoughts?

Just want to add that your Fortitude should be 2 because it is based off of your CON modifier. Seems to be pretty legit as a whole though.

No problem with the feat swap.

As for music? Well you know me (actually I guess you don't hah), I listen to video game music. I have quite an archive actually. That being said, for D&Ding I prefer mostly environmental stuff... Morrowind's soundtrack, Oblivion's soundtrack, select songs from all over (I'm fond of Overworld themes in general from the Final Fantasy series, for example, and songs from Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, Donkey Kong Country Returns also has some wonderful pieces). Ultimately I could recommend a billion things but it's all video game cuz... that's what I listen to, hah!

Just to make sure, the value modifier of materials is a multiplier, right?
Also, is the default material cooper then, meaning I should consider default stuff half of the price than what the d20 srd tells me?
... which would also mean Steel stuff is like 15 times the normal prices... wow.

Yes, and yes. Those are of course defaults, prices will vary based on region, Reputation, and any other number of variables.

Document Reference, close to the bottom.

Edit: I'll run run a check to my gear. You guys should do the same, because I think I saw a few characters in steel gear, they might want to check if they can buy those at all.

"I'm so dumb" Edit: This was meant to another topic. Oh well.
