Sweet! An Inem adventure, and a dark one at that!!!

Question... If we go the Druid route, will there be an opportunity to 'find' a companion once we start? Not sure if it is possible to be banished WITH his dog, but if anyone could it would be Manus.



Will be submitting Manus LochLain, Human Druid (Bear Shaman, but his companion would be a Scottish Wolfhound).

Not sure of his crime --- but will most likely be poaching and/or assaulting a member of the royal family.

Along the same lines as Squeak's question: would a Summoner have any trouble summoning his eidolon inside the prison...or in the lands outside?

You ever get going on your background and get a few paragraphs in and realize you have a long road still to go and start looking for shortcuts to get to the real meat of the story.....sigh

I need to get caught up on posting in my games which was cut a little bit short the last two days due to extra work, but once I'm through with that I'm going to hopefully find the time to read through some of these applications and get started on those reviews.

I can't imagine anyone would get banished with their animal companion, so if you wanted that you'd have to come up with one hell of an explanation why the powers that decided that would have considered that a good idea, as opposed to just banishing Manus and putting down the dog. It's not like the dog is going to be mining ore for them, it is however likely that the dog would cause disturbances in the colony.
There will definitely be the opportunity to find an animal companion once the game starts, though like the wizard's spellbook, this would probably be part of the plot rather than just randomly running into one 5 minutes into the colony. However, this also probably limits the animal companion choices to animals that occur in the colony, and I hadn't really planned for dogs to be on that list. How set are you on wanting a dog? Because there might well be more exotic choices that you've never heard of available within the colony

For sake of simplicity I have decided that summoning spells work just fine in the colony, so a summoner could summon their eidolon just fine both in the colony and outside.

Kenneck Keensong

Halfling Bard

Appearance
Standing just over 3 feet tall, Kenneck towered over most of his halfling brethren, but was still able to escape notice when surrounded by 'big people' as he so often was. His hair had once been a rather shocking shade of blue, but is has faded during his time jail awaiting trial, now providing just a hint of what used to be his most glaring feature. A thin layer of stubble covers his cheeks and chin, but it will never grow as thick as the tufts of rough curls that blanket the tops of his feet. At one time, Kenneck dressed in brightly colored tunics and kilts, his fife and drum ever-present at his side...but now he wears only the simple grey shift given to all the prisoners before they are sent away. The most striking element of his appearance now are his eyes, shimmering pools of pale blue within his ruddy face, still twinkling despite his bleak and dreary future.


Personality
Like most halflings, Kenneck is inherently an upbeat person, always looking on the bright side of life. He grew up in a middle class family, never knowing any great hardship, never wondering where he would sleep at night or where his next meal would come from. Working in his parents' tavern gave him a glimpse into all sorts of peoples' lives, some good, many not-so-good...but patrons almost always left the bar happier than they had arrived, supporting his "life is good" philosophy.

Even as he sat through trial, knowing he was destined for a prison sentence, he never despaired. His recently awakened social activism had engendered in him a sense of 'greater purpose'; he felt certain that his stay in prison would be short-lived, either through action by external forces securing his release, or by his captors coming to the realization that his imprisonment was unjust in the first place. His resolve is to make the best of his current situation, confident that his fortunes will soon improve.


Background
Kenneck had made a small name for himself, attaining a modest amount of fame in the city. His performing career began simply enough in the tavern his parents ran, singing songs and performing tricks for drunken patrons, mostly soldiers from the barracks nearby his home. As he honed his craft, he developed a larger repertoire, and began to craft more elaborate stories, mixing song, dance, and oratory. Over time he incorporated more and more social commentary into his routine: satirizing the local social customs, the military (always a hit with his 'target audience'), local government, and even the nobility.

All was going well for Kenneck; he was living a life of (minor) celebrity, without a care in the world, until the war reached the region. There had long been tension in the area, accounting for the barracks that had traditionally provided the bulk of Kenneck's audience. The city had sprung up around the nearby mines, rich in gold and silver- geographically it belonged to the Kingdom, being on its side of the Argent Mountains...but the majority of the inhabitants in the area were of Nekorran descent, their forefathers having been brought here, many as indentured servants or outright slaves, several hundred years earlier to work the mines for the Kingdom. The two countries had for generations fought over which should control the wealth of the area, but now for the first time in living memory, armed conflict had broken out when a Nekorran warship had blockaded the port and seized a ship full or silver ore.

The change in the city was slow, almost imperceptible at first, but after a few months it was unmistakable; where once citizens were free to wander where they would, any time day or night, now their travel was severely restricted; where taverns were once filled with revelers shouting loudly about whatever topic was on their tongues, now conversations were hushed, lest someone be accused of disloyal thoughts; where once soldiers, politicians, and common folk mingled freely, now all persons were expected to 'keep their place'...all of this of course was 'for the common good' - these measures were 'necessary to protect the populace' in this time of war. As the changes happened in the city, so too were they reflected in Kenneck's act. It became less 'simple entertainment', and took on a decidedly political tone, with sharp jabs at the government and especially its treatment of the local populace.

As the days and weeks passed, Kenneck's audience changed; fewer and fewer soldiers were available and allowed to frequent the tavern, and many of the 'regulars' no longer felt comfortable braving streets after dark - but Kenneck found that he had new fans: loud, outspoken, politically active, many local but increasingly more from other towns an cities, even from as far as the Capital itself. And as the makeup of his audience changed, his act did as well. Looking back he still isn't sure if his message drew the new audience, or if the audience influenced the message; regardless, the end result was something that he should have seen coming.

One night, he sat at his usual table following his act, enjoying a late supper and a few pints of ale with some of the regulars, when the doors opened, and four soldiers strode through. Without a word they marched directly to the table where he sat.

"Kenneck Keensong, you are under arrest for treasonous acts against the crown"

Thanks...but as it turned out, when I sat down to work up the background, the Summoner just didn't "speak to me". So I set him aside for the moment, and I'm going with a Bard instead...

I can live without a dog, I guess... As long as the animal companion I get is cool enough.
I mean, I don't want a pet cockroach or three toed sloth, cause Manus has standards...

How would you feel about a changeling, Inem? I'm rather taken by the idea of a dreamweaver witch.


Regardless, you can consider this a post of interest.

Well I was going to say you can wish for any two things you want for your animal companion, but I'll just put down "No pet cockroach" and "no three toed sloth" in the respective fields of the request form for you to save us time
I'm pretty sure we'll manage to find something you'll think is cool.

Both changeling and dreamweaver witch would be acceptable.
