    Honestly, I'm just going to swap one of the more annoying abilities here with something a bit better for PBP.

    And Goose - Viper's Strike and shit are powers - you pick 2 At-Will, 1 Encounter, and 1 Daily.

    The PHB has all sorts of this stuff.

    So

    We have Horseshoe, Mike Danger, and Goose. We need one more. Also, wow, lots of healing.

    I'd be up for playing a Warlock or a Warlord.

    Yeah, we need one more, but we already have a Striker, Controller, and Leader, so you guys really need a Defender. (Fighter or Paladin)

    At this point it's basically whoever rolls the character first.

    Okay, I can live with a fighter.

    I'll roll him up now.

    Naw, it's cool, I'll stick with a Fighter. I prefer whacking monsters with things anyway.

    My story? Not a lot to tell. My parents are farmers, and I wasn't gonna settle for that like my brothers. As soon as I was old enough I jumped on the first trade convoy that would take me, and hounded the guards till they taught me all they would. Since then I've been making my way, selling my sword (actually flail, to be most accurate) and trying to become incredibly wealthy and famous.

    Eventually I'll go back home. I just plan on bringing enough gold to buy the whole village and build a keep for myself when I do.

    They are class features of the cleric, its used to turn undead, grant a bonus, and you can use feats for more powers depending on your deity. If you cant get the PHB i can roll something up for you and post it. I love making characters.

    adventurer's kit, holy symbol, flask (3), climber's kit, tent, 29gp
    Soirée Goldleaf grew up in a monastery, learning the way of the light from monks of Pelor since the age of 5. His goals were that of any studious and religious boy: become priest, and perhaps one day lead the monastery, or start his own. However, all was changed in his life when raiders came to call. Soirée was only 17 when the monastery burned to the ground, and he barely escaped with his life. Young, poor, and homeless, the young man headed east, to a nearby port town, and started anew, taking any job he could to keep himself alive. Now 36, he has used his learnings from the monks to become a leader in the bustling port, and a sought after voice among the people.
    Channel Divinity: Divine Fortune (Cleric Feature)

    In the face of peril, Soirée holds true to his faith and receives a special bonus.

    [Encounter - Divine - Free Action - Personal

    Effect: You gain a +1 bonus to your next attack roll or saving throw
    before the end of your next turn.

    Channel Divinity: Turn Undead (Cleric Feature)

    Soirée sears undead foes, push them back, and root them in place

    Encounter - Divine, Implement, Radiant - Standard Action - Close Burst 2

    Target: Each undead creature in burst

    Attack: Wisdom vs. Will

    Hit: 1d10 + Wisdom modifier radiant damage, and you push the target
    a number of squares equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier. The target
    is immobilized until the end of your next turn.

    Miss: Half damage, and the target is not pushed or immobilized.

    Healing Word (Cleric Feature)

    Soirée whispers a brief prayer as divine light over his target, helping
    to mend its wounds.


    Encounter (Special) - Divine, Healing - Minor Action - Close burst 5

    Special: You can use this power twice per encounter, but only once per round.

    Effect: The target can spend a healing surge and regain an additional 1d6 hit
    points.

    Lance of Faith (Cleric Attack 1)

    A brilliant ray of light sears Soirée's foe with golden radiance. Sparkles of
    light linger around the target, guiding his ally's next attack.


    At Will - Divine, Implement, Radiant - Standard Action - Ranged 5

    Target: One creature

    Attack: Wisdom vs. Reflex

    Effect: 1d8 + Wisdom modifier radiant damage, and one ally you can see
    gains a +2 power bonus to his or her next attack roll against the target.

    Sacred Flame (Cleric Attack 1)

    Sacred light shines from above, searing a single enemy with its radiance
    while at the same time aiding an ally with its beneficent power.


    At Will - Divine, Implement, Radiant - Standard Action - Ranged 5

    Target: One creature

    Attack: Wisdom vs. Reflex

    Effect: 1d6 + Wisdom modifier radiant damage, and one ally you can see
    chooses to either gain temporary hit points equal to your Charisma
    modifier + one-half your level or to make a saving throw.

    Hellish Rebuke (Warlock Infernal Attack 1)

    Soirée points his finger and his foe is scoured in hellish flames stoked
    by his own anger and pain. If he is injured, the flames burst into life one
    more time before they fade away.


    Encounter - Arcane, Fire, Implement - Standard Action - Ranged 10

    Target: One creature

    Attack: Constitution vs. Reflex

    Hit: 1d6 + Constitution modifier fire damage. If you take damage
    before the end of your next turn, the target takes an extra 1d6 +
    Constitution modifier fire damage.

    Cascade of Light (Cleric Attack 1)

    A burst of divine radiance sears Soirée's foe.

    Daily - Divine, Implement, Radiant - Standard Action - Ranged 10

    Target: One creature

    Attack: Wisdom vs. Will

    Hit: 3d8 + Wisdom modifier radiant damage, and the target gains
    vulnerability 5 to all your attacks (save ends).

    Miss: Half damage, and the target gains no vulnerability.

    Almost forgot:

    Initiative (1d20 1=8)

    All in all, I'd call him a flamer. :D

    let me put it this way... a level one encounter might be something like:

    3 level 1 skirmishers (27 hit points, AC 15, +6 melee attack for 1d8 damage)

    2 level 1 artillery (24 hit points, AC 13, +5 ranged attack for 1d4+3 and maybe some special ammunition that immobilizes you)

    this edition, it have some more challenging 1st level fare than 3.5

    Perception is one of your skills.

    Like any other skill it is (1/2 your level) + (relevant stat modifier) + (5 if it's a trained skill) + (any others that apply)

    Soiree has 14 wisdom, is level one, and is not trained in perception, therefore...

    Perception = 0 + 2 + 0 + 0 = +2
