Older recruiting topic will now double as an OOC (Out-Of-Character) Topic.

We will be starting in the Wilderlands by the town of Akmir. I am also starting the party off with a Salt Flats Catamaran Racer (just in case someone wants to emulate Mad Max or a Duran Duran video). Further, it has a jukebox with a band of tiny imps forced to play music, where slain enemies may drop new collectible soul records for the juke's catalog (and yes, songs replays by PCs'll cost lumen, :p). Gonna do a 'Lawrence of Arabia' long shot with the Salt Flats Catamaran pulling into the Akbir Depot while mysterious strangers have their robes billow dramatically as the music builds & swells.

Feel free to mention in the old topic where you wanna start: On Catamaran or Akbir Depot.

Amara will also be riding in the Sand Catamaran


SIZE: 6'6", 160 lbs.
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS: Silvery skin, deep blue hair, distinctive features, slender physique.
PERSONA: great at parties, bad at holding his tongue, utterly naive of how the world works outside of the fantasy of court nobles and magical decadence
SKILLS: Secondary magic, magical operations, concoct potions, artificer, brewer/vintner (Thaecian nectar), enchant items, inscribe spells.
LANGUAGES: Thaecian, High Talisian, Bodorian, Nomadic (recently learned), Read Archaen
EQUIPMENT/POSSESSIONS: Diaphanous gossamer robes, gossamer purse and shoulder pouch, silver bound spell book, 2
amber crystal vials (potions) and spheres (Thaecian orbs), flask of Thaecian nectar.
WEALTH: 1000 gold lumens in mixed coins and/or gemstones (100 coins, 18 gems worth 50 lumens each).
COMMENTS: Thaecians are devout pleasure-seekers who shun hard work in favor of more pleasant pastimes. They are enamored
of magic, and are partial to Thaecian nectar, a drink noted for its exotic flavor and exhilarating properties.

HELIOS was a wealthy and connected hanger-on to the Thaecian court who got bored by the "safe" decadence of the noble's party scene. After a night of too much nectar, he let his inner thoughts fly free and upon sobering, decided swift departure was the right move, and many months later, after a "disastrous caravan disaster", he's wandered into Akbir.
Helios shall begin at the Depot...with the stunning realization he's unarmed, unarmored, without any scrolls or enchantments.

I will be lounging around Akbir Depot
