~ Looks 4

I am one ugly guy hahaha. I wouldn't usually use Looks as a dump stat (I like to be handsome!) but the dice fall where they may.

That's one grizzled character.

I usually use looks as dump stat
Hehe
simonbarns16/06/2020
Low looks has consequences. Children throw stones at you as you enter the village, superstitious peasants mutter and make the sign of the evil eye...
Greg Dzi (Merrowech)16/06/2020
And a character with a low Looks always kinda look guilty of something :wink:

Actually that all makes sense! Low Strength, low Looks, low HP... maybe I was a dashing and handsome youth before the disease, spurned one too many ladies and got my comuppins
simonbarns17/06/2020
I can but say that I'm sorry for your character, but I'm sure he'll be fun to play.
flowers4zombies (Lucky)17/06/2020
Well actually... his high Reflexes gives him great bonuses to DEFENCE and EVASION and he's pretty smart so he seems like a survivor
I'm not scared of dying at Rank 1, it'll make for a good story :p

Hey @Joshua I'm thinking, my character was nicknamed "Lucky" because he was popular with the ladies before all his bits rotted off. Now that he's an ugly plague survivor, "Lucky" probably has a whole new meaning to him. I reckon you're the only person he still lets call him "Lucky" these days.
Joshua27/06/2020
Yeah thinking about it all i reckon sten will call you Maitland in front of others keeping Lucky as a private thing also stops others asking questions.
Sten is a really generous guy but has returned from the crusades a bit disheartened and questioning the true faith real purpose after witnessing some of the atrocities done in Gods name.
flowers4zombies (Lucky)27/06/2020
Hahaha so I thought about it a little more and... do you mind if I completely change my mind? Playing a depressed grump doesn't seem so much fun to me, so I thought of something more like this. Let me know if it works for you:

Maitland arrived in the Principalities all fired up ready for the crusades, but caught plague before even seeing any action. After he recovered Sten found him begging on the street and, recognising a fellow Albioner and perhaps wanting to do some good after the atrocities he witnessed (your call), befriended and helped get him back on his feet. They went on a couple adventures together, scavenged Maitland the weapons & armour he now carries, and reminded him that there was still something he could live for - treasure and adventure!

With this interpretation I'd say Maitland likes to call himself Lucky as something of a joke, a way of making light of his condition, something he may have learned from Sten.
What do you think?
flowers4zombies (Lucky)27/06/2020
I reckon Maitland probably went to the Crusades out of a sense of responsibility to God but has also had his faith shaken thanks to his bad luck - so with the same kind of feelings about it as Sten, but for completely different reasons.
Joshua27/06/2020
Yeah sure Lucky it is then hows this we met on the ship over got split up upon returning i found you begging in the street so i picked you up put you under my arm and off we went we will be tbe greatest knights Albion has ever seen
And with that bold statement i die in the first session lol
I very nearly went with a sorceror instead of knight lol would have been a different kind of sorceror
flowers4zombies (Lucky)27/06/2020
hahaha sounds good!
I rolled minimum for HP so I don't much fancy my chances :p

Hey @simonbarns I thought I'd move all my other random rolling and character generation chat here so I don't completely fill up the character-gen channel. At the moment I'm still tossing up between Knight or Barbarian, but I'm pretty happy with my stats.
My stats are

~ Strength 9
~ Reflexes 16
~ Intelligence 13
~ Psychic Talent 11
~ Looks 4

I must say, with those Looks it's tempting to play a Sorcerer. Just a super dooper ugly warlock. Maybe he's foreign and the Albioners find him funny-looking to explain why that score is so low.
simonbarns16/06/2020
Have a think.
flowers4zombies (Lucky)17/06/2020
So as a Knight, after modifiers for characteristics, I have:

ATTACK 14
DEFENCE 9

STEALTH 14
PERCEPTION 5

M. DEFENCE 3
EVASION 6

HP 8 (ouch)
I'm going to work my way through the In the Beginning chapter from Book 6, rolling for background...

My father was a carpenter, okay.
simonbarns17/06/2020
Okay, I'm sure there's a story there.
flowers4zombies (Lucky)17/06/2020
What do you think of this as a backstory - I really was a dashing rascal, a freeman and son of preeminent carpenter. We had a decent amount of money, I was well known, confident, full of myself, and a royal pain in the ass to my father, always getting up to mischief with the local lads and ladies.

Maybe I knocked up someone I shouldn't have - daughter of one of the local lords (perhaps a neice of Baron Aldred's?) and basically went on crusade to escape my responsibilities. I like the idea that me and the lady actually did have real feelings for each other, because I like the idea that I might meet her again during the game.

Freemen owe their lord 40 days in their army each year, so I learned my way around a sword, and my (relatively) wealthy father passed down his suit of plate to me. And off I went, full of bravado and confidence!

Long story short, the crusades were hot and dusty, maybe I got jaded, but I caught an exotic illness that wasted me away. My nose, a couple toes and a finger fell off before I was well, and maybe half my face is paralysed, and I'm covered with boil scars. They sent me home on a ship expecting me not to make it and I miraculously recovered - but when I was near home I chickened out, too ashamed of who I was and how I looked, and took to the open road instead.
Haha well I basically wrote you a novel. Let me know what you think, I'm open to changing whatever!

No one who knows me from home would recognise me I don't think, so I travel under an assumed name and tell people I broke twelve lances in the crusades.
simonbarns17/06/2020
Yes, but you'd have been able to mend them.
That's a cracking backstory. I think you've got it.
If your knight was a dog they'd call him 'Lucky'
flowers4zombies (Lucky)17/06/2020

I bet he hates it when people call him Lucky now

Here's my character sheet. I went ahead and bought myself a spear for 15 florins - let me know if that's not okay!
simonbarns17/06/2020
I think a spear is perfectly acceptable.
Jimbo (GM)17/06/2020
I always liked the spear. Different ABR, plus it could be used in tighter areas
flowers4zombies (Lucky)25/06/2020
Yah me too, but they never get much love.

I was thinking a goal for my character, the reason he wants to make money, is to get a fabulously beautiful mask made to cover up his awful face. At the moment I think he might wear a cloth mask.
Joshua25/06/2020

Joshua25/06/2020
His great flowers4zombies character story reminds me of anais (my spelling is probably wrong)
flowers4zombies (Lucky)25/06/2020
Never heard of David Gemmell! But I need a new book, I'll look him up
Is he more high fantasy or low?
flowers4zombies (Lucky)25/06/2020
Oh @simonbarns there were a couple other things I wanted to lock in with you before we started. I mentioned knocking up someone I shouldn't have, perhaps the neice of a lord - do you have any suggestions of who this might be?

I also thought it might be fun to actually hail from the fief of Earl Montombre. I'm in Aldred's lands because I'm too ashamed of my appearance to be able to stand going back home, but all I know of Aldred are the dirty rumours that get circulated in Montombre's place
simonbarns25/06/2020
That works for me - let's hold on fire on the specifics for now.
Jimbo (GM)25/06/2020
Never heard of David Gemmell! But I need a new book, I'll look him up
@flowers4zombies (Lucky) Low Fantasy. Some ‘Magic’ but more about flawed heroes.
