    The required pieces for a character are as follows:

    Race

    Class

    Alignment

    Height

    Physical Description/Biography (this doesn't need be extensive as I imagine your character will develop through the RP)

    Anything else is up to you, but don't feel obligated to do so.

    I should add, just to reinforce the fact, PCs start low level, no returning heroes here. Sorry.

    Use this NPC as an example:

    Herna of the Winter Wind

    Race: Half-elf

    Class: Cleric/Fighter

    Alignment: Lawful evil

    Height: 5 ft. 5 in.

    Description: You see a slender half-elf before you with blond hair and blue eyes dressed in beautiful mithral chainmail with a wooden round shield slung across her back and armed with masterwork quality short spear. She is very beautiful, the most beautiful of the ice maidens who have captured you, her elf blood seems to manifest itself stronger then her human blood in her features and she appears to be in the full bloom of her youth, though you know from the way the other ice maidens talk of her that she isn't a young woman anymore. She talks with a heavy accent that marks her from far to the north and west of the Northlands. From the run ins you've had with her and all your fellow prisioners seem to have have had with her, you mark her as cold and cruel even by the eyes of her fellow ice maidens. It is also clear that she is the one who is leading these ice maidens, commanding the respent of all the servants of Illorun in this venture, save one, a young favored soul by the name of Iselda Bluethorn.

    Here are the other important NPCs at the beginning of the story:

    Cortia Bramblehill

    Race: Lightfoot halfling

    Class: Rouge

    Alignment: Neutral

    Height: 2 ft. 8 in.

    Description: You see a quick, youthful looking halfling lass with brown hair, gray eyes and rosy flesh in masterwork studded leather before you. She appears rather girlish in her facial features and that coupled with her size has the effect to make her appear very cute. You've learned either through experience or from hearing the experience of others that you aren't found of being around her for things tend to disappear from one's point when she's near by. She's a city girl and was in such when abducted, apparently following the commotion Ralsion Graywood's presence on Loskgrod made, for the presence of easy marks that the sight seeing created.

    Iselda Bluethorn

    Race: Human

    Class: Favored Soul

    Alignment: Lawful evil

    Height: 5 ft. 9 in.

    Description: You see a stand before a magnetic young human with blond hair and blue eyes, like much of her fellow "sisters", dressed in beautiful chainmail, holding a masterwork spear. She is beautiful, but something about her you find unnerving, you feel as if every time she casts her gaze upon you, her dread goddess is watching you through Iselda's eyes. She is certainly young, appearing only in her later teens, but she already is noticeably more then yourself. She seems to be somewhat different then the ice maidens (which she technically isn't one of), though she certainly is evil, but it would seem, from her behavior, that something is influencing into taking such actions. The ice maidens talk about her as if she's something important, mentioning something about statements made by a woman of obvious importance Astrilia Snowdiamond (depending on your character's knowledge, said character may recognize that Astrilia is great mystic and is considered to be the leader of Church of Illorun).

    Lorenzal Cortena

    Race: Human

    Class: Sorcerer

    Alignment: Lawful neutral

    Height: 5 ft. 10 in.

    Description: You see a graceful and elegant man before you with jet black hair, black eyes and olive skin that is painstakingly kept fair dressed in noble attire, sporting a signet ring, a heavy mace sling at his waist and a light crossbow across his back. His features are aristocratic and he is beautiful without being effeminate. He appears to be in his early twenties. You've found Lorenzal to be an elitist, but his eloquence and sophistication helps you tolerate him. He comes across as what many peasants feel an aristocrat should be, cultured, well maintained and aware of the differences of the classes. The ice maidens keep their distance from Lorenzal, save Herna who is largely indifferent to him.

    Osrik Balgehr

    Race: Hill Dwarf

    Class: Rouge

    Alignment: Lawful neutral

    Height: 4 ft. 1 in.

    Description: You see a relatively wiry dwarf before you with dark brown hair and eyes and olive skin wearing masterwork studded leather, with a masterwork buckler strapped to his left hand, a masterwork handaxe in his belt and a masterwork light crossbow slung across his back. He is a homely creature with sharp features a long hooked nose. You don't have much contact with him as he goes out of his way to avoid contact with others and when you do he is standoffish, gruff, crude and sexist. The few times you've heard him comment on the ice maidens, you almost feel the need to wash your ears after hearing his crass sexual remarks. His one redeeming quality is he seems to be very good at disassembling traps and other such things.

    Ralsion Graywood

    Race: Human

    Class: Rouge/Fighter (much heavier on the fighter)

    Alignment: Neutral

    Height: 5 ft. 10 in.

    Description: You see an able man before you with dark brown hair that falls to his shoulders, dark brown eyes and olive skin turned bronze wearing fine chainmail, a well made shield and a finely crafted longsword, all of which you assume to be magical. The man's face has a serious look to it, but his otherwise unassuming; he usually sports a days worth of growth on his face. You know who this man is, few are unaware of him, this native of Auvelaine is the most famous mercenary in western Waern. He has coined his own little piece of wisdom "If you always chase the coin, you’ll find you chase the coin away" about the mercenary lifestyle. He tends to be a bit stoic and is as serious as the expression on his face. His personal power surpasses all others in this group by a good measure, even Herna. Ralsion is in his later twenties.

    Rusknar Iceaxe

    Race: Frost folk

    Class: Barbarian

    Alignment: Neutral evil

    Height: 6 ft. 2 in.

    Description: Before you is a muscular figure who resembles a human with long white hair, a right eye of the palest blue and a white eye that is pure white with magical energy that roils of if it like snow in the wind. His flesh is exceedingly pale and colored by what would seemingly appear to be a very mild frostbite and he wears a fine set of leather armor, a wooden heavy round shield, a masterwork battleaxe hangs at his side and composite longbow is slung across his body. Rusknar is xenophobic (like most frost folk) and appears to be sadistic; few interact with him and for good reason. Most frost folk possess strength comparable to orcs, but Rusknar's strength is super human and he is also in possession of exceptional dexterity. Of the followers of Illorun, only Herna surpasses him in terms of power. Rusknar's left eye can produce a blast of cold energy on frequent intervals. Like all frost folk Rusknar is bound to Illorun for the oath his ancestors swore to gain power over the cold. You've noticed that Rusknar stays away from the fires that burn at night.

    right here goes (i can always come back and edit if the need arises)

    Name: Dentarg Skullcrusher

    Race: Half Orc

    Class: Fighter/Cleric

    Alignment: Chaotic Good

    Height: 6 ft. 4 in.

    Description: Hailing from the lands of Old Lyonesse, and donning full plate and wielding two mighty warhammers, Dentarg is no strange to combat, nor is he a stranger to a battlefield. He has distaste for large cities, believing that they only warrior spirit should never be caged, when it should be allowed to roam free on a battlefield, though the taverns do provide some relief, from the perils of combat. Bullheaded, and narrow if not simple minded, Dentarg is not the most intelligent of creatures, and will often prefer to solve matters with his hammers rather than with words.

    His ferocity in combat is met only by his devotion to the deity Borgerix, He will often see only one side to things (Borgerix’s side) and only do things in accordance with what he considers to be Borgerix's will. If he must commit a small evil to serve a greater good, then so be it. He seeks what he considers to be a glorious death, one most befitting of a follower of Borgerix. To die upon a pile of his enemies, to die in any other way is unthinkable. This he hopes will earn him a place on The Glorious Battlefield of Valland along side the other warriors of Borgerix, who have fallen in combat.



    I guess you could view him as a more clerical version of Minsc in a way (but that wasn't my original plan, it just sort of worked out that way).

    Dawken

    Race: Half elf

    Class: Barbarian

    Alignment: Chaotic Good

    Height 5'8

    Physical Description/Biography: A little taller then the normal half elf his heritage is betrayed by his height and build. Despite having pointed ears, his father was barbarian and he developed some of his traits. He got a little bigger and stronger than the elves he was raised with. He has dark brown hair bordering on black and is deeply tanned from many days spent traveling, he has a history of not staying in one place for to long. The most striking thing about Dawkins is his eyes. Due to an abnormality his eyes are solid black giving him an odd appearance. His face is handsome, a little thicker than a normal elves but that doesn't hide his elfin traits.

    He wears a simple combo of chain and leather armor under black and blue cloak and carries a slender albeit battered two handed sword

    He follows the teachings on Linpai, but is not diligent.

    Sestrum

    Race: Human

    Class: Fighter

    Alignment: Neutral

    Height: 5'10"

    Physical Description/Biography: Presumably born of common peasant stock, Sestrum knows only that he fights to fight. He has served in military campaigns as a soldier, both as conscript and volunteer, and follows orders (though not to the exact letter, but finds his own way to the end). His hair is brownish blond and brushes along his shoulders. Couple with hazel eyes and a wiry build, he blends into nearly any situation.

    Sestrum's stance is of neutrality. Any god he may worship is kept private.

    Alixnan Shadowhand

    Race: Planetouched (Tiefling)

    Class: Warlock

    Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

    Height: 6'4''

    Physical Description/Biography:
    With golden-white skin and delicate features this man might be mistaken for a half-elf if not for the horns and black fingernails. His eyes are a piercing green and his hair the color of darkness (not black, darkness. like a starless sky). He is dressed in black clothing and black leather armor with red runes and sigles inscribed on them.

    Alixnan's last name comes from his great grandfather, a demon of minor power who had a high opinion of himself (which ended up killing him). Alixnan's abilities and appearance lead no doubt as to his heritage. Most of his life has been spent hunting down knowledge of warlock arts however he hires himself out as a mercenary if the pay is good. Alixnan has questionable intentions in everything he does, but is definitely the man to see on matters on demonology.

    Ellesa Wildheart

    Race: ???

    Class: Fighter

    Alignment: Neutral

    Height: 5 ft. 7 in.

    Description: You see a human woman who appears to be in her mid twenties before you with wild brown hair and golden eyes, wearing a simple commoner's outfit with a well crafted battleaxe hanging from her belt. Her face is a pleasant one, but she not a not beautiful.

    Orisa Ramhorns

    Race: Tiefling

    Class: Wizard/Demonologist

    Alignment: Chaotic evil

    Height: 5 ft. 4 in.

    Description: You see a strange looking woman with fiery red hair, burning red eyes in a black hooded cloak (a hood which she usually wheres down) covered in strange markings. Her other features tend to get lost in the two curling ram's horns that sprout from her temple and curl around her ears. Orisa has full lips, but the rest of her face, to mortal eyes, seems more demonic then human.
