Well you have to choose from your bonus languages, so that limits things a bit. My suggestion would be to follow your character's roots and think of the languages that Pesh dealers would use. Otherwise draconic, celestial, and sylvan are always good choices for dealing with supernatural NPCs.

So I did. Hmm, now do I want +1 damage and higher carry capacity, +1 AC, an extra hit point per level, an extra skill per level, +1 perception/sense motive, or +1 diplomacy/bluff/intimidate? Tough question.

In Cheliax, Infernal's usually a good choice, though not in the elf bonus language list so that's up to corporeal. And Draconic's always good for an arcane caster. Also, given that Westcrown is a coastal city on the Inner Sea, almost any human language might turn up to some degree - Kelish, Osiriani, and Varisian being the most likely.

Huh, just noticed that, at your character's age, you'd probably have vague memories of Cheliax before the rise of the house of Thrune, when Aroden (LN w/ good leanings) was the chief deity. So Celestial might not be out of line, either.

Edit: Oh, yeah - Katapesh is the hub of Pesh trade, so you'd probably be dealing with Katapeshi merchants. Their chief language is Kelish, but all the human languages I mentioned, plus Vudran and Tien, are spoken there.

Will firearms be in the campaign and will they be a purchasable option?

EDIT: Sheet's done.

Orange, the only thing I noticed was that you forgot one skill point. Otherwise it is all fine and good. Now here comes the tough part. I want you all to work together to figure out how you three fell in together, if at all, and or what precisely brought you to Saltmarsh.To help in this endeavor I want you all to roll your trained knowledge skills.

Well, there seem to be three likely scenarios for Ardanis to have met either of you - as a client, as a target, or as a contact. As a general rule, he doesn't do crime, but he's not above taking honest work from people who are otherwise involved in less-than-honest activities, or working with such people.

Wow. E'loi knows jacks***.
E'loi would probably know these cats as contacts himself, as he generally keeps to himself. Yet recently in his life he's been working to try and take on "semi-honest" work in order to raise his standard of living. So working along side others wouldn't be something he was used to and would be quite a new experience.

Oh. And the money.

Well, I knew witches would be distrusted, but to be actively hunted puts a damper on things. I supposed I will be trying to pawn myself off as a wizard or sorceress, since I have Ned the rat as baggage. As an elf and street urchin, she would have lived in the poorer section of Cheliax, which later became Saltmarsh.She will be walking the tightrope between keeping a low profile and trying to get new clients for her black market dealings.

Ardanis may have contacted Anikara when he found I had dealings with someone he's looking for. As this person owes me money, I ask to tag along to help find the guy. Maybe, E'loi was hired by the same guy as a guard. But he's mad since the guy short changed him, so helps us instead.

Lol, that works for me. Though Ardanis is concerned, since he's hunting this guy because his client is owed money. So now he has to collect from a deadbeat who owes at least two other people.

It's a busy time of year, so don't worry. My internet is still a bit choppy after the storm so we all have problems.
