I guess it depends how old he is now??

Na'naya is not older. Although they could still be linked through the Witch in a manner, perhaps both 'inheriting' the cottage. Na'naya could surely Push him in her own way.

Hey GeneT. Thanks for the application.

As for the overlap on the backgrounds with the witch, I think they're both find as is. Anders could of had his interactions with the witch in the recent past, but her death could have been more recent. Perhaps he does not even know yet? Nothing we can't narrate around.

Donal only had to see the mysterious stranger, not interact, so I opted to leave it open for anyone who got involved (such as Anders sneaking or having a chance meeting?).

Not a worry, just adjustments in thinking. I was thinking one of the main OOC plot hooks in the apprentice beast keeper's playbook was the disguised affection of the witch who has come around to thinking of him as her son (without letting him know or necessarily even admitting it to herself).

But there are many plot hooks that can work in many and various ways. As you say, you can write around most things.

COMPLETE



Character name: Duncan McClain

Playbook Rogue The Untested Thief

Description Duncan is a young man in his twenties. He wears a green tunic with black shirt under the tunic, black leather pants, and a pair of boots.

Personality: Duncan is a people person he will talk to anyone willing to listen. He likes to spend his time drinking and sharing his stories of his exploits even if the stories are not true.

History

My father George McClain was an outcast from the village. He would always tell me when I would ask "why we live in a hut on the outskirts of the village."His answer would "Be son you will hear tales, rumors lies and part truths about me. You believe what you want, but, the truth can be dark thing to learn." I never met my mother, I would hear people say she was a town wench. I also heard she was just a visitor to the village and just left after I was born, and left me with my dad. Dad would run off and do only what God knows, while I would go to the village and explore. Some of the town kids would fight with me cause I was either poor or because I didn't live in the village. I would hold my own. But, not everyone in the village shunned me like my father. I had friends. Even the old widow Mrs. Beatrice would ask me to help around her house to do chores. I did helpfully because she would tell me "Do not judge the son for the sins of the father." Now she didn't pay me coin, but she sure could cook up a stew, or soup. Sometimes when I would finish the chores she would have made me a new outfit.

Now when Mrs. Beatrice passed away when I was 12, I befriended John Smith the village locksmith. This is when I learned my trade of lockpicking. I learned about all sorts of locks. I would help with repairing, or replacing, and sometimes make ing locks. But, even then I didn't make much coin. As I got more into my teens 14 or 15 years of age I started boosting various things of off the travelers in town. See I had a belief or code of honor, don't steal from the village that raised me, instead prey on the visitors. Now we all have our first story and we all have our first failed try. This first time is no different. I made a mark to go after. He was an older gentleman maybe in his fifties. I figured he would be easy, boy was I wrong. No sooner I tried to reach for his coin pouch he grabbed my wrist I was caught and didn't even bat an eye when I gave the man a sob story, about being poor, and hungry, and as I keeps talking the man released my hand and gave me a few coins for bread and meat. He said "Boy just ask don't steal.". So we sat and talked, then Anya joins us at the table and bought a round of drinks. She listens to the stories of the old man and some of my exploits. Anya shared some stories of battle.

Now with all jobs failed and successful ones a like, there is one to be known as the greatest heist and this one is one for the books. I learned that the Order of the Black Rose had a temple in the next village. I made myself look like a begger and a bum. Made my way to the next village, looking around for hours I finally found the temple of the Black Rose. Walking up to the temple a guard stopped me. I simply just asked for shelter from the rain, for a homeless man has no shelter. After a few minutes of begging and pleading for shelter he let me in. Once inside I saw the most mysterious Idol. I just knew I had to leave with it. So I sneaked my way to it and swiped it and casually walked out and back to my hut. All with the Idol.

@Silent Rain. We do not seem go get a trait as part of the playbook. Do we choose or is this something you assign once the characters are complete complete?

Hey Zangul, thanks for starting an app.

Regarding traits, yes, all players receive a trait at level 1. This is not mentioned on the playbooks. Thank you DebRedHair for bringing that to my attention. I have also updated this is initial post instructions.

So I am at the part where I need one of the other players help for my history or back ground.

This is what you gain

You fast-talked the mark and made nice. Your friend bought you both drinks and joined the party, and gains +1 Cha.

Anya ready for review. I have fitted in Katrin but could link with others if it makes sense to have a link between the 2 characters

@DebiRedHair would you mind being the friend that buys a round of drinks and joins the party? If you do it's +1Chr.
