Is it true that we are all elves?

If so, I really like that. Makes a great deal of sense, and will make background and party cohesion really easy.

Yep, I saw so many elves already, I thought it would just make more sense if we were all elves - friends ready to go have an adventure.

So we have Darfin the Fire Magic-User (engine enthusiast), Telros the Thief (Locksmith upbringing), & Branwen the Cleric (Herbalist).

The way I see it, Herbalist is more of a person who goes out, finds the plants and roots and such and knows how to, most likely through a simple apprenticeship, makes medicines from them. A Physician is a trained professional who may know about and use the herbs but has no clue where to find them.

Hunting dogs are for tracking down animals/people, guard dogs are for, well, guarding a person or place. And a war dog is a dog designed to wade into melee and viciously maul anyone who is not a handler (armies usually smelled the same for eating and drinking the same sorts of rations, coming from the same region, etc. allowing war dogs to know who and where to attack).

Also, this is funny that you all are elves! Never saw that one coming.

And welcome to the team, Risha :)

Alright, I'll give it just a bit to see if anyone is going to join. If not, I'll have Solomoriah start up the new sub-forum.

So we have a party of all elves, all different classes too, which is nifty!

I'll be fleshing out the town and surrounding environs some more tonight.

I now have an Obsidian Portal page up about the game. I'll post updates and other info there as the game progresses, if that is fine.

Didn't we have Ser Gavin's interest?

@Longman: Reason why I said I'd wait. Ser Gavin was interested but hasn't really been on recently.

Very nice! A map of the village and the kingdoms would be awesome. Still, very very nice. Good work.
