Last night I introduced a new group of players to the wide-world of RPGs. One of the players has played with me before, the other 4 were new to the game and to the concept of role-playing. Since this is my first venture outside of Dragonquest in ages, it was a slower then normal process in character creation.
Sadly i left me bag of dice at home, but thankfully a Yatzee game had enough d6s for character creation. I did think about using the pre-generated stats for Dungeon World, but rolling up characters is part of the fun.
THE CAST: Yuki - The elven druid. With wild eyes, braided hair and weathered hides, Yukie is born of the great forest and has roamed the frozen north. She is thinks that Ceridwyn the bard smells more like prey than a hunter. She is worried about the danger that seems to follow Yori the arcane duelist. During her travels she has revealed one of the secret rites of the land to Titanius the paladin. Her pack mate Mori travels with her and they are bound by blood. Mori- The elven druid.Wild eyes, messy hair and practical leathers adorn her. She too was raised in the great forest, but has roamed the whispering plains. She is thinks that Titanius the paladin smells more like prey than a hunter. She is worried about the danger that seems to follow Yori the arcane duelist. During her travels she has revealed one of the secret rites of the land to Ceradwyn the bard. Her pack mate Mori travels with her and they are bound by blood. Yori - The human arcane duelist. Firey eyes stare at the world from beneath a hooded head. Her threadbare clothing and lithe body testify to the demands of life she has faced. She is grateful to Yuki the druid for breaking up a fight that was not going well for her, but she tries to conceal that detail from her. She is a regular training partner with Titanius the paladin. She is worried that at some point in the past she may have killed a relative of Mori the druid. She does not trust Ceridwyn the bard to remain steadfast in a fight and fears she will fold at the first sign of trouble. Ceridwyn - the human bard. Her joyous eyes, wild hair and well used traveling clothes indicate how widely traveled she is. Ceridwyn is welcome in many towns because of her charming personality. She has adventured with Yuki in the past but often makes Mori the butt of her jokes.She realizes the Yori does not trust her and for a good reason. Ceridwyn's training has made her very knowledgeable about the dead and undead. Titanius - the human paladin. His glowing eyes, styled hair and fancy holy symbol reveal his passion for serving his god. Titanius is concerned that Ceridwyn the bard's misguided behavior may endanger their very soul. He has a deep trust of Yori the arcane duelist who has stood by him in past battles. While respecting Mori the druids beliefs, he hopes she will one day see the true way. He admires the bravery of Yuki and hopes to learn much from her in their time traveling together. He has yet to discern his quest and the blessing he seeks while on it.
Well there you go. Hopefully you will hear more about them as we begin play in the next week or two. I do find the various bonds interesting and look forward to weaving them into play.
