2 quick questions, would the clocksmith archetype for wizard be allowed and, in that vein, would pre-game crafting be allowed? Like the idea of a little wizard with a couple of clockwork songbirds on his shoulders.

Let me think on the first and get back to you. Clockworks would mostly be imported from dwarves, but halflings have a good relationship with dwarves. No on the pre-game crafting. If you specifically want a clockwork bird "pet", consider a familiar with the Figment archetype.

Also, as a general note, I want to remind everyone that this specific game is a one off. There won't be time for crafting or anything that requires long term commitment (like builds that trade off power in early levels to be more powerful in later levels.)

Didn't end up mentally coming together but to those who get in I am sure this will be a great game!

Yorn Pickety Hornblast application
right-aligned image

Name: Yorn Pickety Hornblast

Race: Halfling

Class: Paladin

Role: Combat, Healing (self mostly)

Affiliation: The Home Guard

Looks: Quite the handsome guy, Yorn has always been a center point for attention when he appears in Hearthhome. Tight fade to a close-cropped black curl top, narrow earlobes, and a chiseled, clean-shaven jawline, frames his rugged-looking face. He is one of those men who carry the suntan and the wrinkles of largely outdoor life with gentleness and make it look cool. He has olive skin, white straight teeth, with a little appealing gap between the front teeth and a few freckles over the cheeks and under the amber eyes. Yorn has an exceptional delightful voice, with which he spills honeyed words and silvery songs for people he met, be they scoundrels or allies. He carries a smell of pine and cedar trees mixed with the olive grease that he uses to take care of his weapons and gear.

Feel: Pleasant as a summer breeze, even as he charges to intercept some runaway bandit, he carries a smile and is often heard humming the song of Bard Bandarby Rhinzel of the Strummers; ‘Oh season of violet and scarlet’. Yorn is generally a happy and positive man. He has had his share of darkness and sorrow but refuses to pass it on to anyone around him, and instead opts for any given opportunity to shine light like a beacon. He is a very tactile man, who love to pad a shoulder here, squeeze a cheek there, and give a great hug to those in need of comfort. It takes a real cranky pot of sour milk to avoid getting cheerful when you are around Yorn.

Story: Octon Hornblast was the first of his name, in the great family tree of vanguard Purple Land Lancers of the Bulwark. He is also seven generations of proud Hornblasters before Yorn’s time and a straight-up legend. Octon the Iron Lung, Octon the Reverent, Eight-mile Sprinter, The Boundless Charger, Wrecker, and Octon the Father of Horns. Many names for a Mythical figure and a true guiding star for anyone leading a baying, growling charge.

Yorn had been in the Bulwark for the first decade of his adult life. He had trained hard under the banners of, first, his grandfather Gunther There had been some clan changes since thenGrimesnack Hornblast, and later his own stout father, Niles Pickety Hornblast. The sorrowful day when he had witnessed the death of his father and captain still sat in him and it was the reason why he, at least for now, had retreated from the Bulwark and taken up a job in the cavalry of the Home Guard.

During these years, he had established a family with Adelia from the Nutmeg Wildfoots, a clan with a rich tradition as huntsmen and prime archers. This meant that the two of them, their eldest son, Rhin, and the twin pair, Ash and Amber, lived in a little squat timber house at the forest edge. They lived off the lush rolling hills, the stream in the back yard, and the thick beech forest. Their home smelled of grease and leather and heated by a cozy stone hearth framed by antlers and feathers, dream catchers, and carved idols.

From this home, Yorn had dug himself deeper and deeper into the Home Guard life, solving crime, upholding the law, and found himself enjoying it very much. Now he was summoned by Harold Talltalker Founder and was tasked with an escort of Barber Whitewool. He had packed his gear on Neeze, his trusty mastiff steed, and gotten all worked up on the idea of traveling Hearth and Heights again. Adelia even had to serve him a steaming hot totty and give him a shoulder massage.

Who’s Neeze
The dog who never lets you down. An especially rare breed created by the exceptional hound masters of clan Slavonia Saddlepaw. His heritage had been tracked through several decades of a colorful and flowering allegiance between Saddlepaw and Hornblast and Neeze’s father, and that dog’s father had also served as a lancer’s mount.

Neeze was introduced to Yorn when he was a mushy little pup and the love and passion for wild, bounding charges and hunts had been shared between them ever since. He had a temper and fierceness that Yorn need to tackle when they were out and about, but just as vigorous and energetic as Neeze could be on the field, just as well as he could turn into a sprawling cuddle pillow in front of the blazing hearth, with three kids crawling all over him and screaming out their excitement.

Yorn has always had the idea that there was something radically unique about Neeze compared to the rest of the Mastiffs of his breed. He was, in so many ways, smarter than the rest and it was as if he, too, shared a connection to old Octon Hornblast. Their paths were aligned and they rode it with immaculate interest and intense focus.

Please, Icereach, let me know if anything stands out as wrong or doesn't match your idea of Gost Halflings?

Will do, Norse. I'm going to start a few informal reviews tomorrow so if I see any nits in need of picking, I'll let you know.

@MundayKnight - If you still want it, clocksmith would be fine. You'd be a rarity in Hearthome, but it's possible. Non-PHB bloodlines are fine.

@Everyone: I'm going to start reviews tonight. Bear in mind that the reviews will be almost entirely lore and setting related. I'm not interested in changing your character, only in helping them fit into the setting.

Full disclosure, I didn't get my reviews written yesterday so I'm playing catch up today. Many apologies.

No worries. It is still two good weeks before your estimated deadline.

I've gone *checks notes* over two months with zero obligations beyond myself. So, of course, when I do have obligations, they all hit at once. Smdh. I would much rather be doing this than waiting at the vet for another day, though.

Two things:
1.) These suggestions are just that. They're designed to help your idea of your character align better with the ideas I have about the world lore. I may bring up something I've decided to add between your post and now, or I may bring up something I haven't explicitly stated but is part of my world vision. Regardless, I've put enough constraints on your imagination as is. I'm not expecting or demanding any of the changes I might suggest.

2.) If you don't see your name in a secreted review, I think you're on the right track and don't have any suggestions based on the lore. No review is a neutral position on eventual acceptance, neither good or bad. I simply think you've done a good job interpreting my ideas so far. Thank you all for the attention you've paid to a project that's taken so much of my time to produce.

No problem everyone. The vet report has me a bit confused but it's nothing immediate.

We've got about ten more days before I bring things to a close and start player selection. Feel free to make any changes you'd like in that time. As noted, my reviews were solely lore based, so I didn't touch on anything like grammar or artistry.
