Name
Ben Algernon Socrates

Race
Ratfolk


Age
16
Class
Plague Bringer (Alchemist)
Alignment
NE
Description
He's got pseudo-patchy black fur over a quick, wiry, build due to the parts of fur that got singed and never completely healed right. His Face is half-singed (Zuko eye scar) and half-black fur, with brilliant heterochromia red/green eyes (green on scar side). His back still has slight hunch from when the village was attacked and he got kicked by a horse. His forearms and hands are still scarred from the burning hut he got kicked into. He guards his 'ratty', patchwork satchel closely, as it was a gift from the alchemist that taught him. He also takes special care of his dark green leaf armor he wears under a worn black cloak for a similar reason.

Name
Amelyssan of Crimsonvale

Race
Sin Galermen

Age
28

Class
Unchained Monk, Scaled Fist

Alignment
LE

Description


Background
Amelyssan was born among Galemren tribe of the Inner Fire, one of the most warmonging of those eternal warriors. Following a spoil of war, her mother was a human countess from the empire of Cheliax. The cunning and ambitious leader of the clan sent Amelyssan on an infiltration mission, gathering intelligence. But even more cunning, Amelyssan planned to take over as the leader of the clan, as planned she took over first her house, learning the petty trade of sinister "accidents". She then emptied the coffers of her family and the taxes of her subjects in numerous expeditions to kidnap martial arts practitioners, obsessed with a quest to become stronger. After she learned their secrets through threats, she killed them. Always giving them the chance to gain freedom over her dead body. In the space of four years, the mad countess became a particularly dangerous assassin to the eyes of those around her, that is mercenaries and cultists as the mad countess killed all her servants, and a glorious fighter in her esteem. She felt ready to travel back to her homeland and take over the clan, or was she ? The clan leader was a full blooded Galermen who had 300 years in advance in fighting. For once she felt she had an unbeatable enemy in her path, and for once in a long time she felt powerless, she couldn't admit the feeling. She could do everything to crush that reality, as she crushed everything that opposed her plans. In the shadows of her halls, an insipid executioner was way more than he appeared to be. He "listened" to her torment, and made an offer she couldn't resist.

Two months later,

The essence of Strife blowed its rancid winds through the pics of the StormSpear Mountains.
Atop a plateau that served as the habitat of the clan of the Inner Fire, a rift between cultists and Galemren formed an arena. Because that day was predicted in cryptic scriptures, that day, no red blood cell would escape spilling in glorious splatter, yes! The Herder and the Predator would fight to the death !

The former ! Casseus the might of Kord, 7 feet tall and 200 kg runestone flaming sword, unifier of the Galemren tribe !
The later ! Amelyssan of the Crimson Constellation, 6 feet tall and 300 joules unarmed strike, her ki scrrrrreaaming a hundred murders !

Casseus lifts his sword in one hand, but does not strike yet, and in a voice powerful like a mating earth elemental:

Amelyssan, you reek of betrayal and massacre, you are unworthy of your clan! In an instant your remains will fall to the lowly realms!
The runes of the massive sword lighted, and a beam of alien, raw energy fused from the wide edge at the tip the towards the chest of the monk. She ducked, but (?) the ray was so fast it beheaded her! Is it already over?! See the proud Casseus, ever victorious, walking away under the acclaims of his people! And so bravery triumphed ag...
* snarl *
I misheard right?
* ominous laughter *
Oh nooo how is it possible?! Why in an oniric blur is Amelyssan standing?! And there is only a multitude of worms crawling where her head was! Another ray of scorching eldritch energy fuses her way but she avoids it fully this time and in the momentum backflips once, twice, thrice*!

Guillotine Hurricaaaane!!!!!

Sickening crack of the skull at each hit!
But! Casseus ignores the injuries, catches Amelyssan leg and drag her down to his blade halving her in explosions of worms! She rematerializes from above in a cloud of ashes and racks the warlord with a frontflip kick from chest to the stomach! Sending him reeling on the back!

A carion stench was stronger in the winds as They from beyond the skies watched the ritual!
Now it was one life versus one, as Amelyssan expended the gifts of the artifact lent to her. Thrilled, possessed with frenzy, she didn't let Casseus counterattack and hissed omens of decay and despair, an ancient dark art uncovered from Ustalav's monasteries, and her prey's wounds festered fast. Greatly weakened, his blows slowed, yet Amelyssan gained momentum at each hit*! Dissipating and reappearing at dead angles to sickle flesh and innards with her jagged kama! Alaaas, the warrior's sword fell, and he kneels! Will he die a proud warrior's death?
Nay! For it was the legend realized. The greed, the lust of gore drives the Predator's hand forraging through the chest of the Herder, and she feasts on his very heart! Her people screams her people cries! As her fists ignates with the newfound power she foresees in awe all kingdoms below tremble at the astral wings of deflagration that burns the stars!

Haaaahahahah how could such marvel stagnate in this cold shithole?! I will be the sole bearer of the Inner Fire ! Kill and rape everyone here everyyyone!!

The Gilermen fought, bravely, but were outnumbered, outmatched. And to the full extent,
Amelyssan's order was fulfilled by dawn. As promised, a scroll of dark scriptures appeared above a poll of innards and gore at the middle of the battlefield.

The Free City of Parsantium must fall. The ruling family, the Triumvirate and the Tribunes must be either removed or otherwise compromised so as to be ineffectual or incapable of ruling. You have been selected for this task at the behest of your sponsor.

If you aren't up to the task, say so now and that will be that, we will inform your sponsor of the decision and leave you be. But, should you accept and once you're in the city we would consider you under contract and in our employ and will expect nothing less than success. If you wish to be part of this undertaking, please present yourself in a months time to The Lanced Hog Inn, twelve miles south of Parsantium.

Parsantium, it was at the crossroads of civilised realms. A nexus of commerce, culture, and those were often fertile to peace. To Amelyssan, the choice of the target by her sponsor and those it represented were daring, but made sense considering their goals. A month passed, it was enough for Amelyssan, her fame solid, to consolidate her circle of cultists and mercenaries into a dojo of assassins, it is thus as the leader of the Umbral Claw that she awaits at The Lanced Hog Inn her first contractor.

The Line
Yielding in a duel

What do I want
Playing a member of a party of schemers looks fun ! it requires strategy and good roleplaying
Also I would like to try roleplaying a dark monk, it is a versatile class with plenty of chances to write dynamic combat scenes, stylish monastic dialogues full of wisdom/spiel or do infiltration.

The plan
Infiltrate one of the smaller docker rogue guilds, take over and infiltrate the Umbral Claw. Steal corrupt noble riches and merchants and distribute it to poor populations, acting as a "chaotic good" rebel chelix noble, offer protection and manage to spark hate of the masses towards rich merchants and nobles as well as the corrupt guard, by digging dirt and putting it full under the light, magnifying it if needed (Amelyssan has 22 charisma). Give the power (and military training, weapons) to the people ! Compromise the higher structures in place and make sure to influence in appointing the most hateful and less competent leaders of the masses instead, such as dangerous prison inmates. In all the cases, make it so all actions can with enough eloquence, individually be interpreted as altruistic, while actually put together with the chosen timing and circumstances they lead to the ruin of the city.
Traits
convincing liar

Benefit: You gain a +1 trait bonus on Bluff or Intimidate checks and one of these skills (your choice) is a class skill for you. -> bluff skill chosen

Monk Weapon Skill

Your attacks with monk weapons are even more deadly.
Select one monk weapon with which you are proficient (unarmed attacks do not qualify for this purpose).
Benefit(s): You gain a +1 trait bonus on damage rolls with this weapon. -> kama
