greetings all, Sabotender here.
Im generally new to Drowtales, though i have been a fan of all the free stuff for a couple of years. I bought the book and poster last year, and started my combo subscription a few days ago :)

Well, here is my character info:

Name: Gar'Krox Gender: Male
Age: Unknown Race: Half Lizard/Drow
Background:
Gar'Krox was born on the surface and raised in a tribe of lizardmen. He was raised in chains as an arena fighter, but during a human attack on his tribe, he escaped. On the surface he never found any place that would accept him. He decided to go down to the underworld to find the drow that he had been born from. Hopefully they would respect his strength more.
Gar'Krox is a powerful fighter, he uses two enchanted chains in combat, one can be set ablaze at will, the other has an increased chance of defending him. Additionaly he also has sharp claws and fangs has and increased agility, due to his mixed blood. Although Gar'Krox suffers a short temper and a barbarian like personality, he still has the disciplined training that most drow warriors have. When traveling around the Underworld he stumbled across a clan of Drow that had been exiled. In need of worthy fighters, they decided to take along Gar'Krox.
Appearance:
Gar'Krox is a medium sized masculine male with a dark gray-green skin. He has green eyes, and scales on his back and shoulders. He sharp claws on both hands and feet, and a short tail. Gar'Krox wears a battle kilt (plain, no tartan) and a shoulder cape with clan logo on. He has medium length braided black hair.
Proffesion:
Gar'Krox is suited as a War Master, or a Slavemaster. HIs third choice would be scout, as long as he is promised some killing :D (he gets a little bloodthirsty from time to time)

(PS. i am working on a picture of him as we speak, may take some time though, as i left my wacom at home (i am currently on summer holidays away from where i study))
(PPS. I hope Gar'Krox makes it into the Visual Roleplay some day :D)

Velkommen ^^
Inspirert av D&D? I Tei'kaliath finnes det bare drowolath, ingen halfbreeds. I tillegg er ikke vi heltene, An'jhali er. :D

Yes, there's the viewtopic.php?f=73&t=10926&start=300 registration thread.

All you need to be hired by anyone is a name tho. Here's how you can apply for an assistant job.

The name field is the only required field.

After completing this, post in the relevant thread (Slavemaster is looking for more Overseers, Warmaster is probably not adverse to getting another warrior. I don't think the scouts are recruiting atm) that you'd like to join as an assistant. :)

Great to meet you Sabotender!

Just... I think your character is a bit out of place for P2P. We have had no contact with the surface, half-breeds, etc.
Our old Clan home did have Dark Elves and a lot of lore/knowledge from the surface, but we were isolated from both the main Chel'el'sussoloth cavern and the surface. Also, for those who track the religious aspect of DT, we don't really know much of Sharess as well.

yepp, Gar'Krox er en av mine karakterer jeg spiller med i Hamar :)

sorry, dont mean to stray from english, its just unsual to meet someone who speaks norwegian ^^
what i said to Thalar was that Gar'Krox is based heavily on one of my Dungeaons & Dragons characters i play as.

I would like some suggestions as to how I can more adapt him to Drowtales.
My thought was that an underworld scout party attacked a lizardmen camp on the surface, somehow this led to Gar'Krox being concieved (doing what Drowolath do best :P)
The reason his "race" is Lizard/Drow is because those on the surface cant see any differance between Drowolath and Drowussu.

The only real thing that is important to keep is his personallity though. Any background information can be changed to fit Drowtales more.
However i would like to keep him half lizard (could be a magical thing), this because i have started colouring my picture of him :P

My sincere apologies, mate, but really... by the time your character would be completely adapted to the drowtales world and, more specifically, to Tei'kaliath, he'd likely only have his name left over.

I'm sure you're attached to your character - we all have our dearly beloved ^^ - but I would sincerely suggest reading up on the world setting and the rules for this game, and start from scratch. Everything, from culture to magic, is different from what you're probably used to.

If you have any questions specifically about character building, head on over to viewtopic.php?f=73&t=10925&start=195 and ask them here. :3 We're more than willing to help!

Much of the problem with that concept stems from a few basic guidelines which everyone has to follow in order to make a Tei'kaliath character.

We all (with the exception of the ex-Relentless) come from a city in the underworld, far far removed from both the surface, and from any other drow society.
The drow culture in this worldsetting is significantly different from the primary one in D&D.

In our city there were only drowolath, and dark elves. No dark elves survived the Exodus, in fact they may all have been killed in the chaos that destroyed the city.

One problem with a half-lizard or half-lizardman character, is that there are no lizardmen in this worldsetting. Another problem is that it is not so easy to create halfbreeds in this worldsetting as it is in D&D. A third problem is, the only allowable race for Tei'kaliath is drowolath.

Also, there is one point about character creation here which is rather important. We are not the heroes of this story. Normally when you make a character, that character is intended to be a hero of some kind. Here the characters are the backdrop for the real hero, Ilharess An'jhali. We are just your normal run of NPCs working behind the scenes to make her shine.

So my basic advice is the same as Madea said. Start from scratch, instead of whittling away your favorite character to the bone to get something playable.. You'd be betraying your old character as well as your new one if you tried to force him to confirm to this worldsetting. *doh*

thanks for your insights, it is rather depressing though, as you all understand.
(what i dont understand is how "drow"-tales has kept the name drow, when it is apparently so far from the obvious inspiration D&D)

anyway, back to DT, I will see what i can come up with for a PTP character, and hope that someday Gar'Krox will be in the Visual Roleplay.

PS. one thing is sure about my PTP character, he is going to be stubborn, as i am stubborn by nature myself :P

PPS. about there being no lizardman like races... you do not know that! Kern and the rest of Studio Drowtales may yet reveal new never before seen undiscovered races! Mwhaha 8P

PPPS. can Ver'drowendar produce offspring? is it too much to ask to have a decendant of a Ver'drowendar and a Drawolath. (no longer has a demon seed, but some of the traits remain.)

Welcome to the club. XD

Sabotender wrote:PPS. about there being no lizardman like races... you do not know that! Kern and the rest of Studio Drowtales may yet reveal new never before seen undiscovered races! Mwhaha 8P

That may be so, but I feel confident enough in my guess for the time being.
And since the only allowable race for a Tei'kaliath is drowolath, it really doesn't matter whether I turn out to be right or not. :D

Sabotender wrote:PPPS. can Ver'drowendar produce offspring? is it too much to ask to have a decendant of a Ver'drowendar and a Drawolath. (no longer has a demon seed, but some of the traits remain.)


A Ver'drowendar is just a drowolath with a demon seed in their aura.

There were no Ver'drowendar in the city we fled from, so no, you can't be a descendant of a Ver'drowendar.

Also, when a Ver'drowendar breeds with another Ver'drowendar, the offspring is drowolath. Same goes for Ver'drowendar x drowolath. The demonic seed does not transfer or transmit a part of itself to the offspring. No traits are transmitted either. The child of a Ver'drowendar is in fact as boringly ordinary as anyone else's child.

And on that point I'd like to reiterate my previous statement.

She's the hero. We are the support.

I know that we are only support characters, but in the event of being promoted to a possission where my character gets an appearance in the comic, all comic characters need some identifying traits. (that is why manga characters developed strange hairstyles)

so i am just trying to rule out the possibilities so that i can think of a unique character in the event of a comic appearance.
I can foresee a "Hey i was on that page!" "who were you?" "that guy next to all those other guys, the one that looks identical to all the others"

With out a unique appearance and personality, all the characters might as well be clones :P

So you think all the people with faces so far have been clones of eachother? :U

The faceless represent subscribers who haven't made a character.
Every character shown with a face is a player character, with the exception of the Ilharess and the Relentless.
You don't need to have some kind of special or unique background to have an interesting character.
