Alexir the Melancholic


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.


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?


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?

First person definitely.

I prefer 3rd person.

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.

In a crowded marketplace, a man is standing on a soapbox, orating. Some of the crowd are cheering, some hissing, some standing around saying "I can't hear a bl**dy word he's saying". It's a hustings for an election. The PCs can either leave, or stay and listen. If they do the latter, then they can vote too, and they might get quite involved in the cheering. Depending on who wins they might get quite involved in the post-election brawl too...

There are numerous possibilities with this encounter: the PCs might end up talking to one of the nervous candidates before their speech, and offer encouragement and support. Of course this candidate may well turn out to be someone with outspokenly unorthodox views, and the crowd don't take kindly to s/his supporters. Or maybe the seemingly innocuous candidate turns out to be a complete racist, and the PCs wander off embarrassedly, pretending they weren't talking to this person five minutes ago.
