@Togot, are you accepting the revised Ranger? Or just the one from the PHB?

Background Info: Serial Killer
Description:Not much is known about Grim's physical appearance behind her beautifully maintained Plague-Doctor Mask. However, if one were to catch a glimpse behind the mask, you would see that she is one of the Shifter race. Even more unusual, she has several qualities of a Raven. She isn't covered in feathers nor does she have a beak, but rather that her dark skin, piercing green predator bird's eyes, slender frame, and stark-black hair grant her the silhouette of a Raven. She is rather short, standing at a mere 5 ft. 2 in. tall. Dressed in dark grey's and blacks, she is always dressed to be on the move. A backpack, Cane, and bandolier of various vials is all she needs to feel perfectly comfortable, content, and ready for action.

Personality:To some, she's a villain, and to others, she's a hero. Grim illicits mixed reactions wherever she goes. Most are simply curious about the strange Plague-Doctor mask she wears on her face.

Grim fully understands the value of information. It is an integral part of her "Process", and as such, she has dubbed herself a 'Selective Extrovert', despite her proclivity for working alone. She'll buy drinks, play games, and even dance... all while keeping her eyes on her target, or keeping her ears open for information/secrets relating to her target.

Backstory:"I was caught." Her voice is slightly muffled behind the mask.

"You were sloppy!" The voice snarls at her. "You skimped on your research and this is the result!"

"How was I supposed to know that Lady Ventriss was going to be 'entertaining' company that night, huh? It wasn't in any of her ledgers or journals. Not even her staff knew. I even checked with all the local brothels and taverns. She must have had her 'friend' brought in from..."

"Excuses, excuses!" The voice cut her off. "It's not my fault! I couldn't have known!" The voice was mocking her. "Of course you could have known! There's only one way for two people to keep a secret..."

"If one of them is dead. Yes, I know!"

Grim let out a long, exhausted sigh...

"What now?"

"Why are you asking me?"

"I don't know... Just seemed like the thing to do!"

"Look! Just because I'm a figment of your imagination that you created to avoid dealing with your traumatic childhood as an urchin on the streets of Iscalio, and to help you justify your bloodlust and desire to kill all the wealthy, corrupt, elites, doesn't mean I know any more than you do.... In fact I only know the things that you know... because... you know... I live in your head."

A second, even more exasperated sigh escapes the mask as She looks down and fidgets with the golden band on her finger.

"At least you were able to kill her before you got yourself caught."

"Is that optimism?" Grim chuckled. "That's not what I created you for!"

"Hey! I'm allowed to evolve over time!" The voice laughed back. "But seriously, what now?"

"Well... We aren't dead yet, so I imagine that someone, somewhere, wants us alive. Which means that someone wants someone else dead, but is too much of a coward to do it themselves. So, now we'll probably be tortured, beaten, and probably starved until they are ready to come talk to us."

"Ugh! I hate waiting! I'm so bored already!"

"Me too. Me too..."

"Hey!?!"

"What?" Grim asked, catching the confused glare of the guard as he passed her cell; "Not you!" She points at her head, as if that somehow was the universal indication for 'I hear voices'. The guard shook his head and scoffed as he continued along his patrol.

"We should play a game to pass the time!"

"Sure... Why not?" The sarcasm was practically oozing off of every word.

"Ok! I spy with my little eye... something..... grey!"

"The cell bars." It wasn't a question.

"Yeah... Yeah, you're right... You wanna have a go now?"

"Ugh... Fine! I spy with my little eye something that's also grey."

"It's the floor isn't it?"

"Yup!" More sarcasm. "You know this game doesn't work because you're in my head... right?"

"Shut up!"

"No! You shut up!"

"Make me!"

"I created you! You have to do what I say!"

"Make me!"

"Ugh!!!! I'm so bored!!!"

"Me too... Me too!"

Specialty Item:Custom: Grim's Ring (Approved by Togot via PM)

This ring allows the user to cast the Shield spell. It has 4 charges, with each casting of the spell using 1 charge. This ring regains 1D4 charges each day.

NE: Eeevull...
LE: Really? Now?
CN: Woohoo!
TN: Meh.


On a more serious note, I'm going with Book of Ancient Secrets as level 5 Eldritch Invocation. Can I use that starting 2000 gp towards the cost of inscribing rituals, and start our game with some known rituals of 1st or 2nd level? Am thinking Augury and Tenser's Floating Disk.

LE is fitting for this game, in my opinion. Honestly, I find it difficult to believe that any good-aligned character could have messed up so bad that they received 3 consecutive life sentences. Maybe if they are on some sort of undercover mission or if they are atoning for something and taking the place of an innocent... but even that is a stretch.

In regards to my own character submission... She's a serial killer with a Robin Hood complex. She got tired of seeing the wealthy get away with everything while people like her, literally, were dying on the streets of Iscalio. So, she started killing them. She's doing a bad thing for a good reason and has an imaginary friend to help her justify it all. Ergo, Lawful Evil.

I thought it was an interesting concept. I just hope Togot thinks so too!

Yeah it's an interesting concept Relig0770. It makes sense too.

I am going with NE because my character is dedicated to bringing about an ecological disaster and I tired of trying to claim such warlocks are freewheelers with a heart of gold. He's not. He's evil. Selfish evil. More of a kleptomaniac than a psychopath, but still.

For me, I went with CN. Tried to do the right thing in the beginning, but after a while being treated negatively by most people because what he is, he became a bit jaded. So for an example, a child is in trouble, he'll help the child without question. However, if an adult brings trouble upon himself, then he's like, it's his own damn fault, he's on his own.

See, @TheYell, that's an awesome concept as well! I like characters that just say, screw it! But, I guess that also is representative of my attitude towards the game as a whole considering I'm a huge supporter of the theory that "There are no bad classes, only bad players!"

I will play ANY class, just to prove that it can be awesome if done right! Especially warlocks! I'm trying to get away from warlocks at the moment because I love playing them so much. (Which is probably why I gave this character an imaginary friend. Lol. I miss the back-and-forth of the patron/warlock dynamic. Lol)

That's a fairly reasonable attitude, but sounds more Lawful Neutral rather than Chaotic (in my opinion only. Not trying to pigeonhole or critique your character). Seems like your character has a set of principles and sticks to them. I always viewed that as more Lawful than Chaotic. Regardless, I'm looking forward to seeing who gets in and, hopefully, gaming with you all!

Sorry I've been away, I'll be finishing up the Boy's history tonight. Looks like some cool new additions in the meantime. Ultimately the Boy is doing terrible things for "good" reasons. Does that count?

I think Xanapal is ready. I have fine-tuned the character sheet and am spending 1900 gold for 80 lbs of stuff.

Forgot his tarantula, that's 1 lbs...

Poison vials are given negligible weight, I have chosen Serpent Venom and Drow Poison which are both in the Dungeon Masters Guide and have assigned a weight of 1lbs to 4 vials. MAN did they nerf drow poison in 5e!

There are no listed weights for incense, censer and vestments out of the Priests Pack, I have just made some values up. Xanapal the Mad knows the ritual of Ceremony so he'll have use for the priest garb and gear.

For musical instrument I have chosen a nine-string baliset, a fictional instrument something like a cross between an acoustic guitar and a sitar, price of a lute. I googled the weight of a sitar and 8 lbs seems median weight. Xanapal the Mad is not proficient with the baliset so I hope you enjoy his hours of steady practice! Straight die rolls for songs, no proficiency bonus. (NE muhahaha)

Pretty much the same with Arlotto. He's Lawful because he follows a strict code (the Church), Evil because he kills people without remorse simply because he's told to. He wouldn't necessarily consider himself evil...he's an instrument of the gods, after all. At best, he'd consider himself doing necessarily evil acts for a greater good, like The Operative from Serenity.

Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: I don't murder children.
The Operative: I do. If I have to.
Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: Why? Do you even know why they sent you?
The Operative: It's not my place to ask. I believe in something greater than myself. A better world. A world without sin.
Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: So me and mine gotta lay down and die... so you can live in your better world?
The Operative: I'm not going to live there. There's no place for me there... any more than there is for you. Malcolm... I'm a monster. What I do is evil. I have no illusions about it, but it must be done.
