Will there be any firearms in this campaign? I want to know exactly what flavour of fantasy sailor I'm building for.

Actually, never mind, I've settled on a concept that doesn't rely on guns. I'll have it up soon.

... still trying to find something nautically thematic. Swarmkeeper with some goblin like mini mermaids perhaps but that feels a little to 'imaginative' for my character

@ everyone I'm thinking the fantasy vibe is Pirates of the Caribbean and older.

Is it too late to throw a hat into the ring? Oh cool I can post now.

Application

Salt of the Wharf (Salty)
Tabaxi Swashbuckler Rogue (3)

left-aligned image

Background

Growing up an orphan in a port town meant that Salty had to do whatever she could to survive. From picking pockets to running errands, she grew an eclectic set of skill that eventually saw her eventually live enough of a life. By day she would be running around the wharfs, hauling goods and setting up port for incoming ships. By night she frequented the taverns in which many a bar brawl would occur, often cause by her own drunken rage. Even if they threw her out, she would always find a way back inside for a good time and a ferocious fight.

However, every morning, she would face the coming sunrise over the azure horizon. Deep insider her, Salty could feel the sea calling out to her. One day, she told herself, she would be able to find work aboard a ship and make her own journey out into the sea. Clutching a somewhat rusty saber she kept shiny and sharp to the best of her ability, she also thought about maybe one day learning what happened to her wayward father who was said to have died out at sea. A man that her own mother was content with waiting for him at port until her final breath, leaving a child alone in the world. Deep down, she didn't know if her own rage was due to her being angry at her father, or jealous at the life he led upon the distant oceans.

One early morning, after minding to her daily chores on the pier, she espied a notice on the board. "Calling all adventurers! Seeking sailors and greenies alike for a hunt of an ancient treasure! Inquire within!". Upon seeing this posted, Salty immediately ran back to her room. In a flash she took the little she owned into a simple rucksack and immediately bolted back to the pier. Finally, an opportunity, she thought to herself.

Every ship needed a cat, and she was determined to be just that.

Appearance/Personality

Bengal-striped Tabaxi, slightly shorter than the average Tabaxi at 5'7", wearing a simple striped bandana and sailor gear. She is quick and nimble, giving her an edge in the many brawls she's a part of. She's very quick to anger and sometimes easily startled. But she will never back down from a challenge, no matter what. However, she has much to learn to be part of a crew as she grew up wary of strangers all.

Info
Age: 22 Ideals: Become the Master of the Seas!
Background: Urchin Bonds: Needs to pay back tab at the inn that helped take care of her
Alignment: CN Flaws: Quick to anger, slow to trust
Size: Medium Physical: 5'4", 130 lbs


Stats
 



NotesThe idea for this character is to create a Swashbuckler with a penchant of rage, eventually multiclassing into Ancestral Guardian Barbarian. Wanted to make a character that was crafty, but would eventually be able to bend the storms themselves to protect her friends and crew alike.

EDIT: Now that i'm going through some stuff, wanted to ask a few things.
  1. Can Scimitars count as a weapon that Rogues are proficient in?
  2. Can I flavor Ancestral Guardians like Storm Herald where I call down lightning instead of Guardians? If not, I can instead just say that the Guardians are her father's dead crewmates.

Yes to the Scimitars, and you want to replace guardians with lightning. We can test it, if it doesn't work we can call the ancestors her father's dead crew.

So I was thinking Storm Herald until I looked up what the subclass actually does. It honestly doesn't feel like a fun class to play since all it gets is 1D6 worth of damage with Sea aura, despite flavorwise working with the setting.

Character submission
"Don't you lot tell me you're afraid of those sorry excuses for pirates! Look at the state of their ship! Their sails ain't fit to wipe your crack and their hull's held together by barnacles and gull scat! Not one of them brine-drinkin', scurvy-ridden, flea-bitten incompetents is fit to serve as our cabin kid! Sort your drawers and draw your swords, and we'll be laughin' over our rum tonight!"
right-aligned image
Source: https://www.deviantart.com/anry/art/Beatrice-4606919
Name: Patricia "Patty" Bulgati

Class: Bard (College of Swords)

Race: Human (variant)

Background: Sailor

Personality: Patty seems possessed of infinite energy, working cheerfully and tirelessly from the hour she wakes to the hour she falls asleep. The source of this energy is twofold: her extroverted nature and her love of the sailing life. Gifted with a powerful voice, she encourages her crewmates with banter, cajoles, and shanties, and is never afraid to pitch in on a job - no role is too demanding or demeaning if it will help the ship. She subsumes her identity to that of the group, and draws energy from her crewmates and the fulfillment of her responsibilities. Indeed, she needs that codependency; she lacks imagination and personal ambition, and if she's ever left without orders to fill or an obvious role to play, she doesn't know what to do.

Appearance: Patty is a young woman whose petite build seems downright incongruous with her powerful voice. Her sun-browned skin, weathered clothing, and ever-chaotic mop of red hair are all evidence of someone who works hard and cares little for vanity.

Backstory: Patty is a sailor born to a family of sailors. She's lived and worked on ships for as long as she can remember and has served in almost every role, from cabin girl to powder monkey to quartermaster to boatswain. She cannot imagine living any life other than that on a ship, and her crew is her family - to the extent that she doesn't understand why anyone leaves. The only position she's never served is the captain, because she lacks the individual thought to do so; all her life she's done what's expected of her, and while she can command people so long as she has someone above her, she doesn't know how to set the course herself.

Personality traits:
  • I used to swear like a sailor, but I got bored of using the same words all the time, so now I challenge myself by never using profanity.
  • I hate shore leave. I spend every minute of it wanting to be back on the job with my crew.
Ideal:
  • Loyalty to my crewmates is more important than loyalty to any laws, philosophies, and gods.
Bond:
  • My crew is my family. I didn't choose them and I may not even particularly like some of them, but if necessary, I'll die for them.
Flaw:
  • I lack independent thinking skills.
  • I'm terrified of being alone.

Seems like a perfect time to try out this homebrew Pirate class! If DM will allow of course.

so its a fighter, but it gets a slightly weaker rogue's sneak attack when it duels? and it gains either double the "duel dice", the ability to cast warlock spells, or to apply condition effects, based on it's subclass... it's an interesting concept, but it seems like it's trying to mix a little too much of everything to me... then again I'm not the DM lol
