Made a couple of quick adjustments to add his patron Goddess and fix the Fieldset title.

How does an Elegant Elven Lass end up running an dwarf-centric campaign anyway? ;-)

The world of Eregold has been the setting for all my FantasyGMing for over 30 years. Lots of things in it from lots of books I love.

I love playing Elves, bur the Folk are something I have used as a storyline for a long long time. The first Lightbringer type character strode AD&D2 in 1980

Sounds cool! My cousin was my first DM. Made up his own world and we played in that word once a week, each Saturday between 1pm and 11pm. Played non stop weekly from 1978 until 1985 when I ad to work on some weekends, then, time to time because he also had to work on some weekends. Then 1994, we stopped completely do to life. Started with D&D, then went to AD&D. He used different things from different books as well. I still miss those days.

Hero
right-aligned image

Name: Lufrael Goldennail
Race: Mountain DwarfDurlini
Class: Paladin 2/ Probably College of Swords after first level up.Bard 2
Deity: Zircona

Trait 1: I get bitter if I’m not the center of attention.
Trait 2: I love a good insult, even one directed at me.
Ideal: Tradition. The stories, legends, and songs of the past must never be forgotten, for they teach us who we are.
Bond: I want to be famous, whatever it takes.
Flaw: I’ll do anything to win fame and renown.

Personality: Lufrael is extremely full of himself, yet a complete coward. He always tries to show his best side, even if it's fake. The dwarf has to constantly force himself to do the right things. When no one sees him, he lets the mask fall, showing his complete clumsiness and misery.

Background: Entertainer (Writer)
As long as he can remember, Lurafel was always passionate to listen about the great heroes of the past, hoping to also become one of them one day. During his education, he paid little to no mind about the important parts of the religion or history, focusing only on the parts that involved the great people like Balen, the Fist of Dwarves. Lurafel never was the brightest or the fastest or the strongest. His parents had little to no hope that he would achieve anything, so they forced him to at least devout himself to a god. He opened one of the tomes, to find a bit more about their Pantheon, and his sight instantly fell on Zircona, the Goddess of Beauty of Nature and Joy of Life. What was there to life, if not joy?
After reaching the adulthood. Lufarel, like many others, had to join the war. Only a few years after joining the unending battle, he had witnessed enough of the horrors to turn his tail and run, abandoning his post. His cowardly escape didn't allow him to return home, so instead he ventured further, to Eregold, where he was welcomed as if he was one of the heroes. Seeing the opportunity, Lufarel decided to roll with it, becoming a storyteller, spreading the great tales about his made up achievements during his service. A few years went by and his fame grew, but with every lie told, the risk of being found out was getting bigger.

Link to Saria:
Eventually, a young investigator decided to dig deeper, trying to build her own success on bringing Lufarel's demise. The dwarf knew that his comfortable life was coming to an end and decided to confront Saria with an offer. She would shadow him on him on his next adventure and see herself, that he really is a hero. Led by his guilt, the dwarf decided to resume the Watch of Korgal, that he abandoned 3 years ago.



Sidekick
right-aligned image

Name: Saria Kelvarin
Race: Human Artificer Initiate feat(Variant)
Class: Wizard 2 (Divination)

Trait 1: I can stare down a hell hound without flinching.
Trait 2: I’m always polite and respectful.
Ideal: Nation. My city, nation, or people are all that matter.
Bond: My honor is my life.
Flaw: I have little respect for anyone who is not a proven warrior.

Personality: Saria is stern and heavily lawful. Her face is almost unable to show emotions, though she doesn't even feel them often. The woman is dedicated to her work and wants to discover and document the truth about everything around her.

Background: Investigator
Saria always was the seeker of the truth. Growing up as a noble's daughter, she was able to learn a lot about the history but it wasn't enough for her. Eventually, she managed to convince her parents to let her join a wizard school. As expected, she was a diligent student, managing to not only understand the past and present but also see glimpses of the future.
During her second year at the university, her family was found guilty of many years of fraud. Almost all of their possessions were confiscated and the head of the house was locked away in prison.
With a sudden lack of funding, Saria was forced to leave the school and search for work to support herself and her mother. She tried many things but the fate eventually led her to becoming an investigator. However, it wasn't what she expected. All she received were some small, meaningless cases. She wanted more. Searching for a fitting mystery, she overheard that Lufrael, one of local stars, lied about his exploits more than once. Saria decided, that she had to find the truth.

Some really good applications so far but there are still weeks to go. Their are no Clan positions to choose from, no Artificers or Gunslingers. It would be nice to have some to choose from. A Folk party without a technological character would be 'different'

@PapaHuck. Thanks for your application. If chosen we will need to agree on your 'Hermit Discovery'. Lighthold is in rolling hills but otherwise the application is strong. Which of the 14 is she particularly following?

Sounds dope. Bhargda reveres Duradonus above all others (of course), although she identifies personally most with the Earth Mother Boruna. Also close to her heart are Korgal/Eldaron (as the Father of Dwarves), Renchar (Bhargda works intimately with death), and Somonol (as well as birth/rebirth).

You need Artificers & Gunslingers in this game? I wouldn't know what to do with an artificer, never played one, don't think I could. Gunslingers, well, I never did like having guns in a fantasy genre.

Telorin the Damned
right-aligned image



Name: Telorin Stormbrow
Race: Durlini
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Class: Barbarian5/Rogue1 Path of the Berserker
Background: Artisan Leatherworker
Deity: Duradonus (The wise one) and Destuvar (God of Dark Air and Storms)
Role: Battlefield DPS. Stealth, Quiet brooding and extreme violence. And bagpipes.

Appearance/Personality:
Telorin stands just shy of 5ft tall, heavily muscled and bald with a long red beard filled with leather and metal charms and runes. He rarely wears much in the way of clothing except for a leather and hide kilt with a chaos banner hanging down the front. His arms are strewn with tattoos and two symmetrical tribal images grace his bald pate. He has a huge, fur cloak which he wears when weather or propriety requires it but can be shed when entering combat.

The first thing people would notice when meeting Telorin is his calm demeanour and menacing, rasping voice. He is often quiet and attentive and seems to consider his words carefully. He is rarely found at the front end of conversations but rather on the periphery. He carry’s a great sword, in an elaborate leather scabbard, which he can often be seen adding detail to as a leather working artisan.

 


Personality Traits:
I have been isolated for so long that i rarely speak, thinking carefully about my words and my meaning.
If I draw my sword, it must taste blood, either from an opponent worthy to my cause, or myself.
Ideal:
Emotions must not cloud my sense of what in right and true
Bond:
I am guilty of terrible crimes and to make up for this I must protect those who cannot protect themselves
Flaw:
I am inflexible in my thinking

A little something to add to the Lore, and allow you to build some more of it into your applications

Lore Update 1:

The Book of the Folk: When a Dwarf is born, the proud parents take it to the local temple of Korgal to be registered. The name, and the lineage are recorded in the volume of the Book of the Folk for the current year. At this point, the child becomes one of the Folk. As they live, their lives are recorded by the priests and the Book updated. This allows the exploits of any Dwarf to be checked and it is believed that there is a link between the Book and the Folk. One thing that creates the Folk is the Book. Any Dwarf who disgraces the Race has their name removed from the Book and their name is never spoken again.

By some miracle of Korgal's making, every copy of the volume, in every temple, is updated simultaneously providing the Priests of Korgal with a full genealogy of every Dwarf who has ever lived. The Book is complete for the whole of the First Age, and for the Third, but there is a gap of some 1500 years in the record in the Second Age as many copies were destroyed when the Holds fell to Chaos during the Decline. Recently, adventurers have been entering ruins to search for copies of the Book, and the gaps are being closed.

The Book is currently being used to identify the descendents of the 7 Founding Fathers so that the Kings can be identified. Relin Relindorn reigns in Reginhold, and Islanne Balendorn lives, but left the Northlands 10 years ago to journey to the islands of the Eastern Sea. The heirs of the other 5 Kingdoms are still to be identified, and until they are, a High King cannot be elected.

Identifying a new goal for Bran. To get his name installed in The Book as a member of the Folk without giving up his family and heritage.
