One week to go. Applications still welcome especially for Clan leadership

Lore Update
The Benisons of Boruna: When the World had been formed by the Gods and the Kindred's, Boruna looked out at the barren landscape, with shaped rock ornamentation, and decided that there should be things that grew upon the rocks. She thought deeply for a while, and then produced three Benisons for Nature.

'LIFE SHALL FIND A WAY': She created tiny pockets of living material. First she created some that took sunlight and converted it into their bodies, then some that broke down rocks and dead tissue to make theirs and then some that ate the bodies of others to make their bodies. She made them so that they would constantly change and grow into new forms and that Intelligence should arise in many forms.

'GO FORTH AND MULTIPLY': She formed the World so that living things would continue to multiply and grow so long as they were able to find the resources to do so.

'THE GREAT BALANCE': Boruna made it so that, if left to themselves, her creations would be in balance. There would be harmony and the Laws of Nature would apply..

Life started as slimes and molds and bacteria. With Boruna's care, supported by Baleni and Throrini Folk, it developed quickly and spread into all environments. It became more complex and webs of organisms developed. As intelligent life began to appear, the Gods withdrew and the First Age ended.

Clan Elder
Bazi
right-aligned image
Name: Bazitelin Twilightbringer

Race: Baleni

Class (with subclass): Ranger/Hunter 3

Background: Urthgardt Tribe member Background from SCAG renamedClan Elder/member

Personality:
Trait I place no stock in wealthy or well-mannered folk. Money and manners won’t save you from a hungry owlbear
Trait I have a lesson for every situation, drawn from observing nature.
Ideal It is each person’s responsibility to make the most happiness for the whole tribe.
Bond My family, clan, or tribe is the most important thing in my life, even when they are far from me.
Flaw I am slow to trust members of other races, tribes, and societies.
History: Bazi is of one of the older named families that can accurately trace the line back to the first tellings of the Clan. Being something of an oddity in that she has an affinity with nature, she is young for an Elder, but has had her position for two decades. That position being Elder Hunter. One is called Elder Hunter at a young age - for a Dwarf - when one is the only Clan member who is doing such a thing.
To other Hunters and Rangers she's crossed paths with, they think it odd that she uses a crossbow instead of a longbow. Bazi thinks her affinity for the weapon comes from her kind being more familiar with tools and the crossbow is more like a tool than a long or short bow is.

 


Position on Council of Elders: Elder Hunter

Link to Sidekick: Wisica Softbranch is from another Clan, but taken in at a young age when her Ranger mother was killed in the wilds. For just over a decade, she's had Wisica under her wing, so to speak.

RP Sample between the Elder and Sidekick: "So, you could have picked any creature to take the form of this... this Wildfire Spirit, and you chose a chicken? Why not a formidable beast, or dwarven looking warrior?", Bazi asked her young apprentice of sorts.

"No, no. I could NOT have chosen anything but the noble chicken. It's fearless, inquisitive, friendly..."

"And they taste good. So is that why you went with a chicken? Because it's the best tasting beast if roasted over a fire? And why not a rooster? They look a bit more menacing at least. If that's even possible."
Wisica's brow furrowed as her mother just wasn't getting it. "No, it has nothing to do with how they taste if basted right over a fire. They're majestic creatures? And why would I choose a rooster? What's noble about waking everyone up in the morning with all that crowing?"

Bazi sighs and says, ""I knew I shouldn't have let you sleep with all those baby chicks you were raising when you were little. I had a feeling that would come back to be regretful."

Sidekick - Wisica
right-aligned image
Name: Wisica Softbranch

Race: Khamuli

Class (with subclass): Druid - Circle of Wildfire 2

Background: Clan Crafter

Personality: The diminutive personage that is Wisica almost always has a mischievous or whimsical look on her face. She's short even by dwarven standards. Her long auburn hair stays braided most of the time, always when she's working. Aside from the Scimitar hanging from her belt, and the two javelins in the thin sheath hangar on her back, she's only got a pack on her back, a shield in one hand, and her leather armor under traveling clothes. If she's awake, there's probably a fire nearby or she's holding something burning. Fire makes her happy. And beer. Or Ale. Or whatever she can brew up.
Trait I always want to know how things work and what makes people tick.
Trait I don’t part with my money easily and will haggle tirelessly to get the best deal possible.
Ideal My talents were given to me so that I could use them to benefit the world.
Bond An injury to the unspoiled wilderness of my home is an injury to me.
Flaw There is no room for caution in a life lived to the fullest.
History: One might think that Wisica's outward demeanor is atypical of that of the clan of her birth. She's lively, outward going, enjoys a good time in the company of others, and doesn't scare easy. Her birth clan is more serious, a bit barbarous, doesn't like outsiders, and tends to be more quiet around others. It might seem odd for those of such small stature, but Wisica likes to say that she's the small package that good things come in.
Having a deeper affinity and love of the wilds than her typical kin, Wisica quickly stood out. Instead of being wary of fire anywhere but in a controlled environment, she deeply connected to the spirits of wildfire that are so often misunderstood by Rangers, Druids, and the fey alike. Fire washes things cleaner than water, and sometimes it is necessary to destroy in order to let life start anew or make way for new things.

Adopted Mother - Bazitelin Twilightbringer

Lore Update:
The Watch of Korgal: At the end of the First Age, when the Benisons of Boruna were completed, Korgal called to him the leaders of the two Kindreds of Servants. To the gathering, he presented two options. They could become subject to the effects of the Law of Change or remain as the Servants of the Gods. Unanimously, and without hesitation or consultation, the Fathers of the Folk and of Giants voted to remain as Servants.

Korgal explained that the Gods were about to depart to the Celestial plane from which they would observe the outcome of their project to build a world. They would not be able to protect that world in person. Korgal then said. " I place upon you, faithful and loyal servants, the task of protecting this world which you have helped to create. You shall Watch over Boruna"s children and allow them to multiply and change. Your stout arms and hearts shall be their protection. "

The Fathers stood, saluted with hand over heart and cried our " On behalf of ourselves and our descendents, we accept this charge unto death and the end of time.". The Watch had begun.

Marked you complete. Am working up the Clan rules and Clan sheet now that I have an applicant. Other characters might get the chance to run a Clan in play but it is great to have that option from the get-go.

Last weekend of applications. Hope you are all as excited as I am

Lore update:
Folk Military:
The Folk base all their military on the Squad of 20. 18 troopers, 1 Lance-Corporal and a Commander. All troopers are trained as either Mason's, Carpenters or Smiths (16:2:2) whatever their weapons specialisation.

Squads are grouped into Fingers. A finger is 5 squads. The first squad is led by a Centurion, the second squad by a Sergeant and the others by Corporals. Squads may have different weaposn specialisations.

Fingers are grouped into Hands. A Hand is led by a Senior Centurion.

Where there are sufficent warriors in a force, Hands are grouped into Arms (An Arm is two hands led by a Tribune) and Arms into Legions (two or more Arms led by a Legate). Such forces are very rare in the Third Age, with the Bannerguard being one of the few Legions in existance.

Multi Legion armies are led by Generals or Marshals
