That fixed it, dur . The whole post acted as a big hyperlink to your image's source for whatever reason.

-==Oota Dabun, The Beast of Valejo==-
left-aligned image
-=Mood/Theme Music=-
================================================== ===============
Name: Oota, The Beast of Valejo | Race: Hobgoblin: Sneaky (+4 to Stealth) and Scarred (Trade Darkvision for +1 Nat. Armor).
Ogrekin: Lanky (Natural Reach 10) and Low Light Vision,
Stunted Legs (-10 ft. Movement Speed) and Massive Girth (-4 Stealth)
Hobgoblin (Ogrekin) | Age: 26 | Gender: Male
Class: Bloodrager 10 | Role: Some Battlefield control with the reach/combat reflexes and stand still feat mix.Tank/Damage Dealer | Deity: Abadar | Alignment: He is a slave, and a servant of Abadar in his own way. He holds to the spirit of the law more firmly than the letter, and with his bloody position, he knows that there are exceptions that must be made at times. He doesn't think about good or evil too much, just impulses that he controls in order to do what is expected of him.LN
================================================== ===============

Physical Description: Oota, servant of the Dabun family, is known among certain circles as the Beast of Valejo... and one look at the man makes much of the reason immediately clear. At first glance, most people usually assume that he's a mutated orc or hobgoblin, but even among the bestial slaves and former enemies, Oota stands out. His hair is black as pitch, braided tightly and tied back to keep it under control. His skin is rough and weathered, gray as the stark stone of the north. Carved in that stone, his features are brutish and unique. His forehead slopes back sharply and his brow juts over his beady red eyes slightly. His cheekbones are high and sharp, like his ears, and his nose is wide and flat. His thin lips sometimes struggle to hide his sharp teeth. His jaw is so square, it nearly hides the presence of his chin entirely. Seemingly to drive home the point, his visage is marred with several scars, as if to represent cracks in the ancient stone and his voice is deep and gravelly.

But it isn't the brutish visage that makes Oota unusual among his kind - all giants, goblinoids and orcs are inhuman, after all. This young hobgoblin is the very image of a demented scarecrow, given flesh. Standing tall at seven and a half feet, Oota looks down at most people, and he is almost unnaturally thin and wiry, weighing only 203 lbsfourteen and a half stone. His shoulders are broad, but the length of his arms is unusual - when standing straight, his knuckles fall past his knees naturally. But he rarely stands completely straight, but rather looks down towards the ground with a slightly bent back, which does little in regards to making him seem smaller. His body is slim, and if it weren't for the hard and wiry muscles, he might look emaciated. Despite his great height, his legs are relatively short and bowed, which causes him to hobble around as he walks. His clothes and accouterments make his rank clear to those in Valejo... He is heavily armed, his clothes are designed for military engagements, and his boots aid him in the harsh climes of the north, which might mark him as an explorer and adventurer. But it's the shackles on his wrists, and the collar that bears the Family Crest of Dabun that truly define him - he is one of the Bloodwatch, a slave who serves as a guard, specialist soldier and sometimes mercenary, on behalf of his owner.

Personality: Oota Dabun's personality doesn't match his appearance, most of the time. Having been raised by the servants of the Dabun family, he is gentlemanly, polite and soft spoken. He knows what he is, and despises the harshness of life that his people face, but he knows that it would only get worse if he were to sink into meanness. But even with that knowledge, and the strict training he's been subject to, his emotions remain strong and there are times when he'll snap and display his disdain of society and the hidden chip on his shoulder - or worse, fly into a rage.

Though Oota was born, and lived a few short years among his kindred, much of his life was spent among the citizens of Valejo. And his masters had been strong advocates of Abadar, so it is largely by his tenants that he lives. He tries to be patient, even if it is a struggle at times. He knows and does his best to follow all meaningful laws - as even the Judge of Gods doesn't expect his followers to obey laws that are ridiculous, unenforceable, or self-contradictory. Further, Oota does allow for context to inform his actions, as he tries to apply the right thing, at the right time. And while Abadarans are typically peaceful, his role in The Bloodwatch is intended to act as an enforcer to keep the peace as best he can. His fight, for the peace of the Empire.

Hail Jack!

For the sake of complete transparency, Oota was a character in this game's previous incarnation and I promised Jack a spot. We now have 3 or 4 spots to fill. This could affect some people's build choices since we now know 1 character in the group for sure.

Going to change my thinking seeing as Oota is already in.

Leo I am looking for information on colleges or universities one might study arcane magic in Orgin. Do they differ between Elf or Human? Or should I just flesh something out on my own?

Cheers

The College of Delmar-Nar or the Order of Focii are the 2 major institutions. You can create your own for elven lands.

I'm going to withdraw, due to the fact that there is another ogrekin bloodrager 10 that has already been accepted! Good luck everyone!

@LeoByron do you prefer the traditional party type make up can we just go a band of barbarians if enough apps like that come in. A bunch of barbarians kicking butt could be amusing

I will be selecting those apps I like best regardless of class, race, or specific build.

I've just got the shell of a character at the moment, but I wanted to throw my hat in the ring...

Name: Genyar
Race: Samsaran
Class: Shaman 10 (Name-Keeper archetype)
Intended Role: Support Caster
Alignment: Neutral Good

The rest is still very much a work in progress. I know the major highlights of his back story, but I need to look through the lore to fill in the details.

If you are on the fence, don’t be! Leo is a great story teller and I have been in his games before! Trust me, if you like telling a story you want to be in his game! Good luck to you all!

Appears a reach polearm tank is a common theme. I will adjust seeing as how we have plenty of time.

I second this with much enthusiasm.
