In the funnel system do you have to use your rolls as they appear in order or can you rearrange them as you see fit?

According to the manual, you have to use them in the order that you roll them but I am okay with you rearranging them so they make more sense. I cant see a blacksmith having a low strength score or a hunter with a low Dex considering they hunt with a bow.

Gerveis Hatter Application
right-aligned image
Name: Gerveis Hatter
Species: Badger
Gender: Male
Occupation: Hat Maker
Physical Quirk: Voluptuous
Personality Quirk: Honorable
Bonds: Strength
Stats: STR: 15 (Bond +1) DEX: 7 CON: 12 (Race +1) INT: 9 WIS: 8 CHA: 10

Appearance: Gerveis is one good looking Badger, he stands as one of the tallest races in Redwall at three feet and eight inches high, his body has all the right curves and muscles in all the right places for a male. His hair is shiny, very thick, the white parts are like snow, his blacks are a beautiful darkened charcoal colour and has an oak brown streak that starts from his nose, and goes all the way up the middle of his head and fades down his back into the snow white colour.

He can always been seen wearing a fancy hat, to show off his trade, it is wide brimmed, rounded top, made of very fine materials, with a leather strap wrapped around the rounded part and with a number of long exotic feathers attached to it. He also has a couple other samples of his work, in case someone wishes to try one on. He wears a simple green common shirt with the sleeves cut off to show off his strong, muscular arms and always has his needle and thread ready to work.

Personality: Gerveis is a young, good looking Badger, he is described by those that know him as a work horse type of a creature, he works hard at whatever is requested of him, he is a manual labourer's dream come true when it comes to work ethic and dedication.

He is also known as a scrapper, often getting into fights when something irks him, like someone talking down about the hat making business, his family, his friends, or simply trying to impress someone that he is attracted to. When a skirmish happens outside of his own doing, he will often rely on his friends to indicate to him that he should step in, or leave it alone.

If you want to get into riveting conversations with him, just start asking questions about hats, he will talk non-stop about it if given the chance. He will tell you what would look good on them, critique what they are currently wearing, and will often tell creatures that are wearing hats what he thinks about them.

He doesn't like reading books, finds them boring, and because he has trouble reading in the first place, and he isn't the greatest judge of character right when he meets someone. He is gullible, and often, higher intelligent jokes go over his head and he is often left confused about it. He also despises having to run and will do absolutely whatever he can to not have to exert himself in that manner.

Backstory: Gerveis was born into simple merchant family, they were well known for making hats, generations of his family were hat makers, which is why their last name is Hatter, it was built into their blood. When he was a child, he grew up a hard worker, moving leathers, fabrics, and other supplies for his family and their business. His health was great and he grew into a strong, healthy, good looking badger.

As he grew older, he didn't go to school, his father and mother got him into the hat making trade as soon as they possibly could, teaching him the fundamentals, so instead of learning things that some would learn in a school, he was learning about hats. He didn't mind it, it was something that he could focus on and it made his family happy, so he continued to do so.

He often made friends with other merchant families, as they would sometimes trade labour for supplies, or other services. Gerveis was great for this, as he liked the work, and it gave him a chance to meet other children, who he would then make friends with.

Now as a young adult, he is working full time at his father's shop, he is beginning to make hats of his own, the one that he wears, was made by his father as a gift when he told him that he was going to follow in the family business. It is a family heirloom and one of his most prized possessions, he also carries around a couple of other hats of his own design that he offers as samples to anyone who wishes to try on a hat and see if they like the idea of having one.

His life so far has been simple, the only troubles he has ever worried about are the worries of a merchant living in Redwall, thieves, pranksters, silver tongued buyers and other merchants trying to sell their own products at a much higher price. He continues to learn the business and one day hopes to make a grand name for himself!

Ludwina Marsden

Race: Fox +1 Wis

Occupation: Innkeeper

Physical Quirk: Missing Teeth

Personality Quirk: Fiery

Bond: +1 Con

Str: 13
Dex: 10
Con: 12
Int: 10
Wis: 4
Cha: 8

Backstory: Ludwina has been a tavern wench in the village surrounding Redwall for as long as anyone can remember. Known for being a flirty alcoholic seemingly incapable of putting any forethought in her poor decision making Ludwina has still somehow managed to move up in the world lately. This was due to going from wench to hostess of Redwall's dingiest inn on the outskirts of town, "The Rancid Tail" after marrying it's skunk proprietor.

Personality: Ludwina is something of a fiery tart as well as quite defensive about her choice of loves. This has led her to lack all fear of joining in one her seedy inn's many front-room tavern brawls as evidenced by the many missing teeth in her once beautiful smile. Though it must be said that she still smells quite lovely for someone married to a skunk.

(Thank you Hal!)

I LOVE the Redwall series! It was the first young adult novel that I read when I was younger and absolutely loved it. I also have an affinity for squirrels that has spread through my entire life haha.

My main question for you is what do you expect the posting rate to be?

Posting rate is likely to be about 1 GM post a week, maybe 2 GM posts a week depending on player participation.

I like it, Dark Star. You took a bunch of random rolls and built around it. Good Job!

@Jrod: That looks awesome. It gives me a glimpse of the character but I see more potential hidden there. I look forward to seeing him show himself.

Application - WIP
right-aligned image
Name: Mal
Species: Badger
Gender: Male
Occupation: Tanner

Physical Quirk: White Streak in Hair
Personality Quirk: Romantic
Bonds: Charisma

Stats:
 


Appearance: Once towering over everyone he came across, the years have brought his frame to a much more manageable level. While still head and shoulders above the majority of his customers, at least they can now see the wide grin that's usually plastered across his face when he's showing off one of his latest pieces, or how his eyes manage to both light up and soften when his missus walks into the room.

The years have also seemed to bring a chubby exterior that Mall isn't the proudest of, making him appear a lot softer than he truly is, but the muscles of his youth are still very much present, rippling under the surface as he works. His fur, stretched across the accumulated fat and muscle, has far more white patches than he remembers having in his youth, but the missus says it looks distinguished, so he takes those with stride. Other white stripes mark scars hidden deep below the fur level, though those are not a discussion point Mal choses to ever delve deep into.

Personality: Though he cuts an imposing figure, Mal can in fact be quite a calming presence, and his customers often seek more than just his wares when they come visit him. His wise words have saved more than a few friendships, and he always has a pot of tea ready for the next conflict he must mediate.

A hard-working badger, the lights aren't often extinguished in Mal's tannery. From the early hours to late at night, Mal can be found either sweating over his newest piece, chatting with his regulars, or tossing sweet nothings towards his missus. This would put a strain on many, but Mal's enduring calm is said to be more durable than even his toughest hide.

The only thing he loves more than his work is his beloved, his missus, his wife Piper. If he's not found in his shop, he's mostly likely in a local meadow picking her a bouquet, or buying her a small token at the market, or just talking a walk with her around the courtyard. Piper is the love of his life, and that's apparent to anyone who's seen them together. He would be devastated if anything ever happened to her, though as they grow older, he knows that day will come sooner than later. He only hopes that he is taken first.

Backstory: Mal and Piper came to Redwall as a young couple many moons ago. Not much is known about their time before Redwall, and they don't choose to discuss it, if they even remember it. All that is known is that they appeared one night, in the dead of winter, cold and starving, and collapsed outside the front gates, Mal over Piper to protect her from the winds.

After they were taken in and nursed back to health, they took quickly to the calm, peaceful atmosphere of the abbey. Mal befriended and apprenticed himself under the local tanner, an old mole by the name of Oliver, and excelled in his new position, while Piper proved to be one of the deftest seamstresses the Abbey had seen in quite a while. They quickly ingratiated themselves with the residents of Redwall, and, while the questions of their past followed them around like black clouds initially, they slowly dissipated after being met with either stony silence or subject changes.

Gradually, the young replaced the old, and the questions disappeared all together. To the young, Mal and Piper had simply been a pillar of the community for time immemorable, first taking care of the old mole in the tannery, than just of each other as the time went on. To the old, they simply just knew better than to ask anymore, having exhausted all their need and want in earlier years, and now simply accepting of them who they were currently, not who they might have once been.

Samuel Application
right-aligned image


NAME Samuel

Species Badger

Gender Male

Occupation Forester

STATS STR: 4(-3) DEX: 9 (-1) CON: 8 (-1) INT: 8 (-1) WIS 14 (+2) CHA 9 (-1)

Physical Quirk Humpback

Personality Quirk Mellow

Bonds Wisdom

Appearance When glancing at Samuel, the first thing you notice is his humped back, giving him the distinction of shortest badger in Redwall Abbey. He has a weathered look with clothes, boots, and body consistently caked in mud from his work in the forests.

Personality Samuel has an air of calm surrounding him - he does not move with haste, but rather every movement seems deliberate. Being born with a humped back has given Samuel a humble demeanor. When asked about his physical deformity, he'll smile and say "Every creature has its purpose. This way, I am closer to the ground to plant and care for our trees."

Backstory Samuel was found outside the walls of Redwall Abbey as newborn, likely abandoned due to his physical disability. Badgers are known and revered for their strength; Samuel's hunched back is seen as a weakness that could bring dishonor upon a family - at least that's what the Badger Mother surmised when she found and took him in. Growing up, Samuel had a particular affinity for the forests, often spending hours among the trees. When he initially expressed interest in joining the foresters, the young badger was laughed at. How could he possibly wield and axe, fell a tree, or carry wood in his condition? Surely he was too weak and too slow to ever be a forester. Yet Samuel did not allow the others' derision to derail him. He continued to join the foresters, watching them work and occasionally assisting in the planting of new trees or using his shortbow to fell predatory dangers from the forest. Over time, Samuel's calming presence and mellow, go-with-the-flow attitude combined with his keen perception and almost preternatural sense of danger and ability to fell a foe with a single arrow earned him the respect of the other foresters. Samuel is now a permanent lookout and planter of new trees. He relishes his job - could anything be better than spending your days cultivating new forests and watching the wonder of the woods?

Alright, app should be done above, unless, like @plantgirl asked, we need to make bonds with others. If not, it's done, and I'd always appreciate a review if you're handing them out @Hal.

You can wait to make bonds once the players have been chosen. I'll update the table soon.
