Alexir the Melancholic

By:

A melancholy bard, with good reason.

Special Equipment:

An ornately crafted lute from Isend, a gift from the queen there who pitied lonely me. A ring from someone I cannot name.

Appearance:

Why do I not cut my hair? Ask her that. She begged me not to, and I have not cut it since. It flows (elegantly if I do say so myself) in golden streams over my shoulders. Some say I speak resignedly, I say I do not speak at all: rather I think aloud. My attire is comfortable. Why dress up for others’ sake when you could be at ease with yourself?

Background:

My story is a long and convoluted one: my journeys have taken me over all of the known world, and beyond. Why do I travel? Suffice it be known that I once lost a gem to a hideous disease, and I know I shall never find her again. I must fill my life with something, or I shall become restless.

Roleplaying Notes:

A bard I am, though I have a modest smattering of other skills, picked up along the way: Tengrian martial art, proficiency in seven major world languages (and numerous minor ones), Ulisk water-origami, to name but a few. I could never get my head around reading, nor magic. I’m a Jack of Most Trades, I suppose.

Thought I'd give the 1st person method a go like in Crow's last post. Do you prefer this or a 3rd person approach?

I like the air of wispfulness you created. I gives a wise DM or player a way of determining who the character will act.

But I would have liked a little 3rd person background.

Again I am beginning to see your name as mark of quality.

1st person is interesting, but oh so brief.

The Maze

       By: sirgarberto

As far as everyone knows, the Maze has always been there; the strange pair of gates set in the side of a mountain a common feature in every painting of the area, no matter how ancient. One white, one red, nobody knows what they're made of but they resist any attempt to damage them; they’re always slightly cool to the touch no matter the weather, they have a very reflective surface, and if you look at them in a bright light, sometimes it looks as if they glow on their own.

The important thing is what’s on the other side of them, of course. The Maze itself is a strange place where the normal rules are suspended, and its own set takes their place. It’s a place filled with puzzles and riddles, monsters and traps; it’s always consistent with itself in any single run but is never the same two times around, and sometimes you could swear it has a sadistic streak, delighting in tricking the unwary adventurer.

It is a dangerous place, as so many people will rush to tell you; most people who go in never come out, and even those who do usually end up scarred for life. They also bring out with them enormous piles of riches, which is why people keep going in anyway.
