I'm interested. I think I'd like to play a young sorcerer, who gets his magical powers from a mysterious, glowing red gem which he believes sometimes talks to him. Human, NG, I imagine. I'll write up a character sheet and a more indepth background later, if this is ok. _________________ Character Descriptions | deviantArt
Ok, here's a preliminary sheet for my character. I'm a bit unsure about a few of the details, mostly equipment and spell selection, so I'll probably change that a bit before play.

Presmer grew up in southern Halruaa, and like most people there studied the arcane arts from a young age to become a wizard. But Presmer never ended up a wizard despite both talent and interest, instead he chose the path of sorcery after purchasing a seemingly mundane red gem from a Calimshite merchant. Shortly after buying the gem, Presmer slowed down his studies, to the great concern of his mentors. Despite this, Presmer gained arcane power far quicker than should be expected from his meager studies. Presmer claimed that something within the gem granted him the power and guided him in his studies, so that he could focus on what was important rather than all the repetitive studies and practices he'd have to go through as a wizard.
Not surprisingly his mentors sought to convince him to stop this foolishness with the gem and return to wizardry. Presmer did not comply and in the end had to flee the country for fear of persecution. The truth about the gem and Presmer's newfound powers remain a mystery, and Presmer has learned to keep his beliefs about the gem to himself.
Description and Personality
Presmer is tall, young and rather handsome. Presmer is studious for a sorcerer, and social for a scholar, not quite fitting into any normal perception of his kind. Like most Halruaans he's rather distrustful of others, but tends to act friendly. Despite his distrustful nature he may not possess the wisdom to see through even obvious lies and deceptions, as the deal with the gem suggests.
well, seems Deadly has already taken the Arcane spot...
Cassie, what are you planning to do? i'm a little torn up between a divine caster or a sneaky type... _________________ "I run, therefore I am; more correctly, I run, therefore with any luck I'll still be." Rincewind, the Wizzard.
Born in the city of Sshamath, the daughter of a slave human and a priestess of Lolth. Abused when young, made a slave and trained to be a slave. Gets caught stealing, but manages to escape. After much wandering through the endless tunnels, she makes it to the surface, and now wanders. Unsure of what she's searching for, but sure that she needs to keep moving, in case the drow are still after her. Doesn't care for much in the way of gold, or helping others. Just wants to survive, and help herself. She comes first, others later.
..i couldn't make up my mind, so i rolled a dice on gender. seems this Presmer guy may be a pimp.. _________________ "I run, therefore I am; more correctly, I run, therefore with any luck I'll still be." Rincewind, the Wizzard.
Also (which I neglected to mention before) I need a reason for you guys to be in Almraiven. =). If you have no FR book, it says:
Almraiven: This port city is home to the country's largest shipbuilding facility. Aside from the whirlwind of merchant and guild activity, wizards and sorcerers know it as the premier centre for magical study in Calimshan.
So all I need is a (feasable) reason to be in Almraiven. =).
Oh and I'll give you a little more time if you want to make any changes.

And the only good-aligned character in the party? And teamed up with a (possible) Thayan? Poor Presmer, I can see his doom already
yeah, but look at the bright side of life... his cause of death may be by smothering _________________ "I run, therefore I am; more correctly, I run, therefore with any luck I'll still be." Rincewind, the Wizzard.
Well, it's real easy with Presmer. His gem comes from Calimshan, so it makes sense that he'd end up there. He probably believes the gem told him to go there for some reason. And if Almraiven is the center of magical study it makes even more sense.
