    Too dorfy. If he's an adoptee then he'd have to be raised by eladrin or something, a sober, soft-spoken and clean-shaved fellow who brushes his golden hair twice daily to retain its brilliant sheen.

    Also, he'd use an orb, because wands are so... plebeian.

    A dorf among elves makes him look out of place.
    Which, in this case, might be just the thing we are looking for. I'm partial towards the clean shave, because that's just wrong... but again, given the other characters, and imagining Sandwich's reaction...

    As a sidenote: I thought Sandwich had more braids? She reminds me of griffith in these pics for some reason. Also, I love Keekee's backstory, or at least the way it was delivered in the previous thread.

    Dwarves can't be clean shaven, because their beards are vital organs.

    Wouldn't Sandwich be the default party leader being the paladin and all?

    Also, I like the idea of a duel-wielding dwarven wizard.

    Could we challenge his dorfy blood with having him be cultured and gentlemanly to clash with Sandwich's upbringing? A dwarf who admires and desires all things elven - which is why he's in the party in the first place as a 'scholar' who would like nothing better but to teach these wayward elves how to be an elf.

    >> Anonymous 11/05/10(Fri)16:49 No.12691209

    So basically a clean-shaven, well-mannered and well-spoken dwarf who studies or teaches at an elven-dominated arcane university or something. He finds the girls as odd curiosities that must be studied and educated back into elven civilization, and he's convinced this will make him famous/grant him tenure at the academy where actual elven wizards give him the cold shoulder despite his best attempts to out-wizard them.

    He'd be heavily involved in trying to teach the barbarian, cleric and rogue about elven custom, tradition and glory while getting into arguments with Sandwich at the drop of a hat. He'd be extremely cautious around the drow while sometimes feeling insecure due to her dorfy nature reflecting against his lack thereof, and Sandwich would be extremely prickly with him due to her history with snooty elves looking down on her drow-birth and her own belief on how a dwarf should act thanks to her upbringing.
    >> Anonymous 11/05/10(Fri)16:51 No.12691231
    I think that would work, though I'm not too sure on how the dual-wielding wands fits in. Maybe it's because I've first seen it in Penny Arcade, but I seem to associate dual-wielding wands with some kind of action-hero wizard who is so full of himself.
    >> Anonymous 11/05/10(Fri)16:51 No.12691233

    I think a writefag explained how her hair growing would constantly make dying look bad when she was young after a few days/weeks.

    Personally, I don't see why she wouldn't get back into dying her hair red, especially after the first few weeks on her quest as she feels more and more homesick.
    >> Anonymous 11/05/10(Fri)16:52 No.12691254

    I say he'd pick wands as any proper elven wizard would use, but his suppressed dwarven instincts naturally drew him to the idea that two wands are more efficient and better.
    >> Slow Drawfag 11/05/10(Fri)16:58 No.12691307

    Just my interpretation of her. Had her hair drawn before I thought of looking for reference...


    Ah, yes, I remember reading that. All pictures I fou
    nd of Sandwich seem to depict her with white hair, though...
    >> Anonymous 11/05/10(Fri)17:03 No.12691367

    This is because the red hair was a one-off thing, a cute anecdote from her childhood. It wasn't carried on through her teen years or training years.

    Still, I think she'd probably pick up the habit once again out on the road, getting hounded on and on about how she's a Drow any time her helmet comes off.

    I'm sure Violet, unless she's a natural orange/red-head, would help her out with professional tips.

    Are there any other suggestions for interesting characters for this party? I'm fond of the 5-man-band, but I won't think twice about 6 or 7 to be honest. I like the dwarf at the moment due to the potential conflict/synergy with the original lynchpin Sandwich.

    Also, ideas on stories and quests? Elaboration on the other characters?

    Guys, what's the natural meeting point of a dwarven beard and a clean-shaven elf? A moustache. Our dwarf should have an extremely well-kept and elaborate moustache. A moustache so elaborate that an ignorant person might even mistake it for a small beard. They would, of course, be in error.

    Prinugulus Stonemight, Vassal of Lightbrand, with Stonemight being his "dwarven" name (given by elves as a mockery but eventually sticking because it's not bad at all), and Lightbrand being the surname of the elven family who adopted him.

    He's pretty much a British gentleman dwarf, especially with the whole moustache thing that >>12691611 has going on.

    Okay, okay, everybody. >>12690863 here. I've turned this guy into a secondary character for my DM's current campaign. (We're lacking a person who's not retarded and knows Arcana.)

    His name is Belethil Lomion, which is Quenya (Tolkein elf language) for "Divine Radiance, Son of the Twilight." He uses a tome (of Binding, summoner wizard) and is obsessively clean. Nine times out of ten, when he casts Prestidigitation, it's to clean something or someone (usually himself), and he's memorized the Fastidiousness ritual, which prevents a person, object, or area from becoming soiled.

    He has platinum blonde hair and keeps himself clean-shaven at all times, and in the tradition of miss Goldtusk up there has had his ears altered to be pointy. In fact, he keeps himself free of any and all body hair. It's not a matter of wanting to be an eladrin or anything like that, it's simple fashion.

    This is my character portrait.

    How about we dump all but Sandwhich and Goldentusk then add in some other races. Like Half-Orc raised by Eladrin, or Dwarf raised amongst Humans so he's always tinkering with something, loud, and generally obnoxious.

    Actually I think it's fine as is, three odd elves and one gentlemanly dwarf. It's not exactly fap-fodder because, for whatever reason, dwarves aren't sexualized that much (Dwarven males, that is, don't think I forget all our dorfen women threads)

    Also, a dwarf, no matter how gentlemanly, elven or Fabio, sticks out like a sore thumb among three elves no matter how strangely they were raised.

    I'm all for the dwarf with an even more exaggerated moustache than this >>12691763

    Because while they both have that sort of savages angle, the size difference could be played up on this. Imagine if you were raised by a people incrediblly taller. Imagine growing up as a kid, being the size of a toy in comparisson to other kids. I just find the image of a tiny elf warrior fighting alongside giants funny.

    Imagine trying to get a girlfriend in those sort of situations. With the stereotypical role of a strong male in tribal societies, and being that size in comparisson... it could be fun to play around with.

    If you feel some more flavour is necessary, we could use a specific type of giant. A Fire Giant, very military orientated, very strict and orderly and with all the invonveniences of being surrounded by Fire Giants.

    I'm debating whether making the dwarf a older (read 200 years older) gentleman would increase or decrease the fap fodder level. While on the one hand you have they very Buffy-verse Giles trying to keep a handle on a few out of control youngsters, you also then run the risk of making the girls seem younger, introducing the whole loli-angle..

    I know what you're saying, but I don't think he'd fit into the party. Right now each member is kind of reflective of an inverse of a trope associated with elves-

    Elf with an inferiority complex? I'd imagine being surrounded by giants might do that to you. Elves often have superiority complex.

    An Elf who's really, really insecure about himself because he's failed in a lot of things Giants find important (he's not as stong, tall, might, brave, etc). Maybe he runs away because of this and joins the party?

    Eh, it's just an idea I had from a funny image in my head. If it really doesn't fit then just Dwarf Elf will probablly be fine.

    Right now we've 5 for the five-man-band, so I think we're good. With a paladin, barbarian, cleric, rogue and wizard we're covered well enough with the standard niche class types.

    At the same time, we've a healthy mix of normally inform elves from various backgrounds that give very distinct personalities - and each would have great synergy with the other members of the party. Professor Dwarf makes it perfect I think (unless someone disagrees and wants an all female/elf party and demands a standard female elven wizard).

    Sandwich is a dorfy paladin on a quest from her dwarven god. She's the idealistic heroine that tries to get everyone moving to her pace thanks to a combination of lawful good self-righteousness and dwarf bombast.

    Goldentusk joins Sandwich and her quest to complete a mutually beneficial objective for more personal, emotional reasons. She'll likely clash constantly with Sandwich for team-leader position.

    Violet is team mom if she ever musters the courage to speak above everyone else's chatter. She follows the group out of hope for friendship with the first pointy eared girls her age and height and wants to fit in well with both the paladin and barbarian.

    Keekee is caught trying to steal from them but stays for the chance at finding greater loot than she could hope to see on her own. She's always looking to steal Goldentusk's jewelry, Sandy's armor, Violet's glasses, or anything else that catches her eye. She latches onto a quiet Violet as she confuses her less confrontational objections to her pilfering for being super friendly and not mean like the other two who are always watching.

    Professor Dwarf can't get enough of them both for his research and study on elves and for his ego in thinking he could tame and re-educate all four into proper elven ladies, becoming famous for his work in the process. Beyond the whole Drow thing, he takes issue with Sandwich and her dwarf nature that goes against his rejection of his own heritage. Goldentusk's utter barbarity offends his well-mannered lifestyle. He dotes on Violet as a sort of star-pupil on scholarship from an unfortunate upbringing due to her love of reading, and Keekee makes him almost catatonic with her disregard of cleanliness and love of touching all of his meticulously cleaned, shiny possessions.

    To Sandwich she is the 'racial' rival that just annoys her to no end, though she feels its her duty to educate her on her wrongs and try to guide her to more productive pilfering. She keeps her happy by tossing a random dwarf-forge trinket her way from time to time.

    To Goldentusk she's the scrappy little sister she's never had, delightfully feral and not afraid of getting dirty like the others - she feels sorry for her being so frail and flimsy though, so Goldentusk feels obligated to watch out for her.

    To Violet she's a playful, hyperactive chatterbox that would probably turn out alright if she just had some good old-fashioned halfling cooking and a caretaker to keep her from hurting herself too much. She spends a lot of time constantly healing Keekee's nicks and scratches due to the girl's lack of concern of obstacles and dangers in between her and the next shiny trinket in the distance.

    To Professor Dwarf she's plague manifest in an urchin's body, and like a child discovered in the woods he sees it as his duty to teach her everything there is to know about being an elf from step 1, starting with hygiene. She provides him enough material for more than two chapters on the proven theoretical limits of elven survival when debased to the lowest form of subsistence, and he considers passing her off as a potential missing-link between elf and kobold if his initial thesis gets rejected by the academy.

    Rather obviously, his name is not actually "Professor Dwarf", but rather some ridiculously elfy name with extraneous vowels and/or apostrophes. They just either never could, or never tried to, pronounce it properly, so they just call him "Professor" - except Keekee, who just calls him "Dwarf" because she finds it hilarious the way he gets ruffled up when she does so.

    To Sandwich she's her new best friend, a girl that grew up with roughly the same sort of issues and life hiccups as her, and she's a good-at-heart cleric to boot. She thinks her the only sane if soft party member and constantly asks her for her agreement on all arguments (most times she doesn't bother to wait for an answer and assumes a yes). Also, she constantly fights an all-conquering urge to braid Violet's red hair, but can't muster the courage to admit it. Violet, though, has no problem helping Sandwich dye her white hair reddish to remind her of her proud clan.

    Goldentusk appreciates the healing, but can't help but think Violet is the one most in need of it being so pale, flabby and sickly looking compared to the rough-and-tumble Keekee and lady-of-war Sandwich. She thinks, like everyone else, that Violet's a good listener and doesn't think it strange to tell the poor girl her life as a once-married orc bride with children - the halfling-elf is always left in shock.

    Professor Dwarf think her his most promising, most civilized student of the group. He sees her as an earnest, uneducated country bumpkin that has great promise if educated due to her love of his small library of books he carries, but because of this he doesn't think twice about launching into crazed lectures on topics way beyond the poor girl's ability to grasp just yet. Professor Dwarf may possibly have history with Violet's mom, either a favor or maybe distant fascination for her work and feels obligated to watch out for her daughter.

    She butts head with Sandwich constantly not so much for being a drow as for being an uptight paladin that seems to take issue with every little thing she does. She also thinks her aggressive approach to situations would help a lot more than Sandy's defensive, disciplined approach. She does, however, respect the little girl's drinking ability and regularly tries to drink her under the table. They're around the same age, she thinks, but she thinks herself far more mature due to having had children and growing up in a less sheltered environment among the orc tribes.

    Professor Dwarf can't help but turn his nose at her. Everything about her offends everything he holds dear about elves though she can't for the life of her see the appeal.

    Basically, I was thinking for a way where each character, if paired up as a duo with another, could carry an interesting relationship as friends/rivals/comedy-duo.

    And each one would represent an elven ideal turned on its head in direct challenge to Professor Dwarf who, as the most elven of them all, seeks to both understand and 'correct.' His working dynamic with Sandwich is probably the most complex of them all due to being both Drow and Dwarf-in-actions.

    Goldentusk also has been simliarly fleshed out- she's questing to help prevent war between the elves and orcs
    Keke- she's here to steal as much shit as possible, and also because the party wouldn't feel right if they just left her alone (Perhaps her Kobold adopted family was exterminated by low level adventurers?)
    Violet- so far, drawing a blank, though I like to think that it's because Keke stole from her at a market place, which led to Sandwhich and Goldentusk both getting involved in a standard chase scene through a city bazaar

    OP needs to work on their anatomy.

    Sandwich's head looks like it's trying to escape her neck, and her upper torso isn't quite in line with her lower torso. The back of her hair is also pretty off.

    Violet's eyes and lips seem too big for her head, and the bridge of her glasses is too wide. It should be resting on the sides of the bridge of her nose, not on the flat of her cheeks. It looks like you kind of squashed her face to fit onto hre head. The underside of her bust looks strange, but I can forgive that as being the fault of clothing.

    Keekee's nose seems to be protruding a bit much, but perhaps that's intentional? The right side of her neck seems odd too, like it's thicker than it should be. Her arms should have more variance to their thickness I think.

    Gal'ahdrah appears to be having the "face trying to escape" problem here too. The shading and positioning of the ear don't help. Left side of stomach curves oddly. She has man hands, but that might be intentional.

    Overall, very nice job OP. I'm usually far more nitpicky with these sorts of things. Definitely above average, I'd love to see more.

    I was thinking Sandvich killed a pack of gnolls raiding dwarven caravans and found this human boy, about 9 to 11 years old or so, in their camp. She thought he was kidnapped and he was too much in shock to set her straight so she dumped somewhere and hadn't thought of him since.

    Now he's back for revenge. He casts spells through jokes and puns and people who laugh at his humor fall under his spell. He acts as a mastermind sort of guy, charming a horde of thugs or an important personage to get in the party's way, using illusions to trick them or frame them for crimes, messing with their heads and doing his damndest to get Sandvich to fall.

    Cute, but the whole "funnyboy gnoll" is a bit cliche'd. Was thinking that, since real hyena "laughter" is actually done when they are angry or frightened (and gnolls are basically bipedal hyenas), maybe this guy could be kinda mentally off-tilt a la The Joker, and it's when he starts laughing/cackling that you know shit's about to go down hard.

    Gives a nice excuse to work on the whole Villainous Laugh, anyway...

    The party storms the audience chamber and there the skull helmed man sits on his throne of bones.

    "We have you now, Skeleton King!" Sandvich shouted.

    The Skeleton King laughs. The party expects to hear some grandiose evil speech but the Skeleton King continues to laugh. And laugh. And laugh.

    He bends over his knees, clutching his stomach and cackles madly. He fall off his throne, rolling on the ground in laughter. The party stares, not knowing quite what to do.

    He rolls down the flight of stairs leading to his throne and to the feet of the party. They back up, looking disconcerted by this behavior from their big bad who has terrorized the nations for so long.

    They look up as another man steps out from behind the throne, the Laughing Man.

    "Well, /he/ found my jokes funny," He quipped before settling down on the bone throne.

    Writefaggin it up.

    Through the busy streets and cobbled roads, through cramped throngs of people hawking goods and picking pockets strode a dwarf, regally robed and magnificently mustached. Scrutinizing a scroll as he wandered through the busy market, his mind was occupied. For the past week after a local meeting of the mages guild, he had been gifted with a particularly odd task to prove his continued worth. Though he was a mage of no small worth, he had a feeling that such a difficult job had been gifted unto him because of his odd lineage. Being raised by elves only helped so much in the field of arcane diplomacy. He sighed and put his monocle back into place. His task, specifically, was to find a potential link from the olden times of the elves. This was hard enough considering his rocky heritage- It is not every day that a dwarf claims to have been raised by elves, after all- and made harder still since the only places available to him were a distance away.
    >> Anonymous 11/06/10(Sat)03:42 No.12697492
    He straightened the miniaturized map of the region in front of him, planning his journey out. Immersed such as he was in his work, he did not notice a quick, dirty figure running through the crowds being chased by a red-haired woman, weaving through the crowd as though she were swimming. The redhead adjusted her eyeglasses and focused on the dirty elf urchin that stole her pouch as she avoided a pack mule. The filthy ragamuffin looked backwards, eyes wide in terror. She did not notice as she stumbled into and over the dwarven scholar. Several high-pitched skrees were heard as she scrabbled back up and tried to escape, but found herself entangled by the sheer intricacy of the stout fellow's mustache. "Are you okay?" A hand came down to help the dwarf up. He groaned and opened a grimy eye, seeing the slender form of a red-haired elf lass standing above him, looking worried. "I'm sorry the pickpocket knocked you down, sir dwarf." Groaning and trying in vain to reorganize his once-proud mustache, he took out a cloth and began to daub at the dirt that seemed to cake his face.
    >> Anonymous 11/06/10(Sat)03:45 No.12697520
    "Begging your pardon, I need to get it back now." The lass stated, pushing her glasses up once more and starting ahead. She stopped abruptly when confronted with the stern visage of a dark-skinned elf female clad in heavy armor and hefting a large looking hammer over her shoulder. "Did me friend take somethin' o yours?" The stranger said, voice flecked with a heavy dwarven accent. The pickpocket was tucked behind the figure of a burly elf female- my, did there seem to be a lot of elves in one place today- peeking around her leg and clutching a dirty bag. The dwarf stood up woozily and tried once more in vain to straighten his facial hair before giving up and dusting off his monocle. The redhead, meanwhile, Simply gulped and gave an almost unnoticeable nod. The drow looked back to the elven pickpocket, saying, "Kee? Did you take this lass's pouch?" The filthy form shook her head furiously until she looked back to the drow, and fell silent. She slowly nodded her head. "Aww, but she did wot she was told." The third elf of mighty stature said. This one was golden haired and clad in the furs of animals and tattooed in a few places.
    >> Anonymous 11/06/10(Sat)03:46 No.12697540
    Curiously, she wore a delicate, well-worn blade with a crude hilt, and two glittering golden fangs poked out under her top lip, giving the appearance of tusks. The drow nodded. "Aye, that she did, but She were no' told ta take it from the hands of a stranger. We gave her coin fer that." The drow once more looked to the redhead, extending a hand. "Name's Sandwich Stoutaxe, and this is Gal'akdruk Goldentusk. And the little rascal be'ind 'er is KeeKee. At yer service, marm." The fiery scalped woman took the hand shakily and squeaked, "M-my name is V-Violet. Vanthais. Err, Violet Vanthais. I serve Yondalla as a clergywoman." By now, the dwarf had collected himself enough to observe the situation. What a strange occurrence this day, four female elves- one a drow, no less!- all from different descents. He looked carefully at each one, until he came to the last, the one they said was 'KeeKee'. THAT was the ruffian that mangled his marvelous mustache! She looked back to him and smiled sheepishly. He wiped his face off again and stopped, midswipe.

    Her teeth were pointed, and oddly spaced. She looked as though she was always crinkling her nose, and carried many small pouches around her form. She reminded him of his old adventuring days, fighting kobolds and killing gob- A KOBOLD! She must have been raised by kobolds, of course! The smell, the body language, the noises she made when frightened, even her smell reminded him of those filthy, scaly things. An idea suddenly popped into his head, one that may solve his present dilemma. He loudly cleared his throat as the drow managed to pry the bag out of KeeKee's hands and hand it to Violet. "My dear ladies, it appears as though my map was lost in the tussle. Pardon me, wherever are my manners? my name is Tithranidan Dlaralsyr, from the land of the sun..." He stopped and pretended to look around. "...And I appear to have lost my map and my way. Pray, you four look as though you know the area, and you all seem a bit exasperated by this ordeal. Perhaps we may speak more at an inn, patch up misunderstandings?" He smiled daintily and bowed lough, despoiled mustache touching the ground. He whispered three syllables and straightened, dust and dirt crumbling off of him, leaving him clean once more.
    >> Storyteller 11/06/10(Sat)03:49 No.12697574
    Sandwich and Gal'akdruk grinned and nodded in unison, and KeeKee squeaked her approval. A bit flustered, Violet also agreed, seeing no other way out.
    Some time later, the five had found an inn by the name of the Pale Wind. Settled around a table with warmth of drink and food now placating them, they shared their respective jobs. Sandwich, a paladin of Moradin; Tithranidan, a dwarven Wizard; KeeKee, a rogue raised by kobolds; Gal'akdrak, a savage warrior who was raised with Orcs; and finally, Violet Vanthais, an elf maiden taken in by Halflings. Sandwich told Violet and Tithranidan both of what keeKee's mission was. She had been sent out, Sandwich explained, to gather their food supplies for the day and had been given a pouch of coins. Once into town, it had been made apparent that KeeKee couldn't read the signs posted. Frustrated, she had seen a large sack filled with food that had been left in a stall. Unbeknownst to KeeKee, the owner was still next to it.

    Using an archaic and inaccurate text document to write, forgive the sloppiness. Also there are some cookies issues that make it a pain to update, so I aim for speed over bulk.
    So had ensued the chase, so had ensued the meeting. Violet smiled at KeeKee. "I understand now, and I offer you some of mine. Yondalla would have those who can share do so." Sandwich waved her hand in response. "Nay, Ah be thinkin' you can keep the food. We're just comin' back from a particularly nasty bog of a village, and just got back from the temple. Now, I'm no slouch when it comes ta healin', but ah cannae do it all. If ye're a cleric, as ye say, we could use yer help on the road ahead." Sandwich rambled on about the places they'd see and the things they'd do in the name of all that was good and righteous while Tithranidan contemplated. He had been correct about KeeKee, and now his Idea was coming to fruition. Travelling with elves would make it easier by far to learn more about them, and the one raised by kobolds seemed very primitive. It may be a stretch, but if studied enough, she may prove to be the key to completing his quest.
    >> Storyteller 11/06/10(Sat)04:09 No.12697743
    But, he vowed to himself, If he was to travel with these ruffians, the least he could do was to teach them what it meant to be an elf- or in KeeKee's case, at the very least, civilized. "Say," Began the crafty dwarf. "You're adventurers as well? I seem to have lost my map in the earlier ruckus. I can cast a variety of useful spells, and I grow tired of toiling day and night in a library. Would you fine women be adverse to having me accompany you on your trials and travails?"
    Though Violet was still fumbling around for an appropriate 'yes', sandwich gave him a look over, frowning. "Have ye ever been adventuring 'fore now?" She asked. "Yuh, you looks real skinny. Dont want you snappin' like a twig when the going gets tough." Said Gal'akdruk. Tithranidan raised his hands placatingly. "Admittedly, I am a good deal paler than my biological kin, but I assure you that I have delved many a dungeon before this one. You will not find me lacking should the reason arise." Sandwich, at least, seemed content with that. "So be it, Tilthan...Tutha...dwarf," -Tithranidan winced at that- "ye're in!" Sandwich raised her mug high, yelling a hearty dwarven toast joined enthusiastically by Kee and Gal, and halfheartedly by Violet. Tithranidan raised his wineglass and leaned back in his chair. His mission just got a whole lot easier.

    I'd prefer a british dwarf than a Elven dwarf but whatever...
    What would be even more interesting is having, say a mission giver.

    While in a fantasy world a dragon/mage/king would fit the role of benefactor and quest giver,
    I thought of maybe making it a interplanetary explorer. A human who managed to get his ship into the orbit of a long lost experiment world (genetic) and is now giving the party missions and paying them with information ( through hologram transmissions). They can always buy some orbital support, but at the cost of several missions, as He/she loaths to bombard planets....

    and they consider this human a spirit or a ghost with an od fascination of exotic jewlery ( cyber implants)?

    Works.. kind of, .. if it only tells them stuff seeing all the planet and going thermal and active sensors on underground obs, but being unable to help them, except to communicate with them through quantum entanglement box when they leave to other planes

    she appears shy? if i were writing this character i'd be more inclined to make her more jokey and witty, with a retreat to concerned caregiver in the proper situation.

    I kind of saw her like Maggie from Read or Die at first. Tall and awkward, compared to her adopters at least.

    One thing I'm really liking is the difference between her, Sandwich, and Goldentusk. They may be around the same age, but Goldentusk is a widow and a mother while Sandwich is saving herself for a marriage she hasn't even started thinking about yet. I'm assuming Violet is along the same lines as Sandwich.

    Just a vastly different level of experience in some matters between them that could be interesting.

    Shy, bookish, freakishly tall compared to the rest of the cast at times, awkward.

    Probably a lot more quiet than what Violet is intended to be. Generally weird too. She would crawl into tight enclosed spaces to curl up with a book out of sight from everyone else. Probably a LOT more dysfunctional than what people want for Violet.

    Why not have Professor Dorf be the one who gathered them all in the first place? Officially, because he needed a group to go find him the long-lost scroll of Bigby's Chocolatey Donuts or something a wizard might want, but in reality that was just a cover for his real goal of field research.

    All four of them should figure this out at some point along the trip. For shits and giggles, Keekee would be the one who knew from the very beginning, because she pickpocketed his original research grant request when she first met him.

    The Professor should also unknowingly become more and more dwarfy as he travels with the group, mainly because he loses his ability to keep up the veil of cultured bullshit that constitutes the elvish way of life after too long dealing with this motley crew. The drinking probably won't help.

    Also, while I'm admittedly ripping this off from Anachronauts, the Professor's spellbook should be in the form of a monocle that's sort of a magical e-book reader.

    Chronology of meeting:
    Elf/drow pally encounters elf barbar on route to X and they converse, with elf pally pledging herself to elf barbar quest. Upon arriving at X, elf kobold steals from elf pally, and is then shorter/later caught by elf barbar. They drag elf kobold with them to building Y, where they encounter Violet, who decides to defend elf kobold due to misunderstanding, and when she gives a small gift to elf kobold elf kobold takes a liking to her. Violet decides that elf barbar quest is a good idea, but says they need certain supplies from city Z. They leave, but elf kobold sticks with violet (prob with thinking along the lines of 'Free shiny!/Friend!') and as such comes along with. At city Z elf pally tells elf kobold to be useful, resulting in the situation written by Storyteller writefag in:

    I see Sandwich as the group leader, with elf barbar being the primary plothook and damage dealer (i.e. the main character).

    I personally would go with Keekee being the smartest of all of them, and just having very little education. Life as a kobold tends to weed out the stupid pretty quickly, after all, and it also just feels right that the most intelligent member of the group is the one who cares the least about it.

    Kobolds have to be brutally practical about everything, because they're at the bottom of the totem pole pretty much everywhere. When you have to spend practically every minute of every day just surviving, you don't have the time to develop much culture. Lots of oral tradition, though, and knowledge about things directly related to survival. Also, Keekee probably can paint very, very well, since I see kobold warrens being covered in cave paintings for ritual and storytelling purposes.

    Eh, if it meshes it meshes, if it don't, alternate universe. ;)

    It was kind of on the dead serious side of things. Original four come upon a village in need. Flashbacks to how each of them started off on their adventuring careers interspersed throughout.

    Kind of plays off an obscure elven ability that makes them the ones for the job in the situation that arises, but it hopefully avoids the "elves are better" crap that Goldentusk's player specifically said she was aiming to avoid. That ability gives them a bit of a leg-up, but it's their upbringing by their adoptive families that really carry them through it.

    Second story involves a ball being held in their honor for some deed. Professor Dorf HAS to be involved for that one.

    Third is A Very Sandwich Christmas. Already plotted out, not doin' till December. Kind of assumes that everyone's tribes/hometowns are still around.


    Actually have one for the first story. She won't be joining though. Can't say any more than that.

Keekee'd obviously get everything dirty and steal from the buffet and jewelry of some very important people.

    When I first saw gnoll-raised human bard I thought he would be more like a comic foil that the party would occasionally encounter, a crazy-ass bard with an occasionally awesome sense of humor that they would tolerate for a while before he wandered off again.

    But I like what /tg/ has done to the guy.

    I propose he could be BOTH.
    Early on he would be acting just silly and annoying while getting close to watch them. Keekee's traps would get everytime he would try something and he would just act kookier to get himself excused. He would crop up occaisionally as just another comic reliefe and expy character, kiindof like some favored NPC, but in reality he would be collecting information and then using his abilities and contacts to arrange 'incidents' in their path over and over, until they actually get one of his major puppets (the Skeleton King?) and reveal himself as the strange BBEG 'The Laughing Man' that some mobsters they had beaten up before had mentioned.

    Can one of them please get killed off at some point? This needs something to make it a bit less "my fetish waifu traipses through fantasy land while doing cute things." It doesn't need to be grimdark -- it could be in an epic battle against some gigantic beast, or in a dramatic showdown with an evil wizard/sorceror/lich, or anything (that isn't rape).

    Normally I'd slap someone for blatantly using character death to give a story a sense of weight, but I really think it's justified in this situation.

    If you want, Professor Dwarf could then go into super badass mode for the rest of the fight. Then maybe he feels guilty for always sitting on the sidelines studying while these young girls charge into battle, and goes through a bit of a transformation from "knowledge-seeking old dwarf with a soft spot for those amusing children" into "grandfatherly guardian." He's still interested in learning and studying, but he realizes that there's a lot wrong with the world, and he intends to help the girls fix that.

    I know no one wants to lose their personal precious waifu, but I really think the story'd benefit from it.

    Keekee would have the most trouble, I think. Goldentusk won't have experience with balls in particular, but as lorekeeper for her tribe she'd be no stranger to formal gatherings where people wear elaborate garb and carry out strange rituals, most of which are ultimately related to showing off and/or finding a mate.

    Keekee's problems are going to start with "bathing" and continue from there. Especially since she'd probably be afraid of baths; something that makes you smell clean is a liability in the wilds, where all it does is make you stand out from your surroundings. Even worse, it erases your own smell/taste, and that's probably how kobolds identify each other underground.
