    A shame about the revenant, but I shall live. I'm assuming PHB races are fine correct?

    Let me introduce you to...

    Ceana, The Orpahn Child

    I didn't mention it in the backstory, but she's only about 9 or 10 in real life, but in her dreams she a fully grown woman.

    Prepare for a wall of text:

    Gwyn-Lai, Windsoul Genasi Monk
    Spoiler:

    A little different, having a dream-self that's a different race, but Gwen is a dreamer(hence her Psionic power source in her dream-self, she has a big imagination,) and a Windsoul Genasi is the closest thing to perfect freedom she could get.

    My vague idea for her inspiration on that was seeing a Genasi(or a group of Genasi) heading north through the town, with all kinds of rumors spread about them, that they were heading far north, into the barren lands, etc. Gwen just wishes she had that kind of freedom.

    He will be a human Paladin of Bahamut, and shall be loosely based on Ace Rimmer, ie, charismatic and suave, but a little foolish. Always does right by everyone, though those who win.his favour will invariably be praised above all.

    It's actually based on an NPC I created for a home game. I love creeping my players the fuck out, as it makes it that much more satisfying for them when they finally put down the BBEG (and they're usually that much more motivated to do so :P).

    I should probably mention that you don't necessarily have to have a psionic power source for this to work.

    Oh, I know. I was considering making her a paladin, but someone beat me to it, and besides, half-elf stats fit better with battleminds.

    This game concept is intriguing. Race question: how are you on Kalashtar? Too planar? Too Eberron?

    Updated my post with a picture and am planning some background expansions, so will post them when they're decided and (slowly) typed up...

    Edit:
    By the way, I put a level 1 and 2 item on my character (plus one I bought) If it was only meant to be a level 2 and 520 HP, I'll drop the magic scale down to scale.

    Korsahn you only get a level 2 item for free. If you want to spend the gold on another one, that's your choice.

    Also did you try using mythweavers for uploading a sheet?

    Ok, then ill drop the scale to.mundane.
    It's not the uploading, its that I'm not actually using a pc (in using an HTC phone)
    It's really useful, but not fully compatible with everything, unless anyone knows differently?

    I like how I never exactly specified that these had to be incredibly depressing origin stories, merely that the real character had to be working class

    And so far we've gotten a waitress/prostitute, a deaf minstrel, a paraplegic orc, a war machine used as a scarecrow, an orphaned 9 year old, and others
