PostSubject: Minstrels! (OOC)   Mon Feb 01, 2010 11:19 am

You are but a simple band of four minstrels; or BARDS as you prefer to call yourselves. You travel from town to town, performing for money, food, drink and what not. As well as doing other work on the side when times are tough. But the adventurous and perilous life of a Bard is the only one for you.

However others don't see you as the adventurer that you are. To them you are just an annoying minstrel whom while a fair amount of people find entertaining; just as many people would love nothing more than to break you're instruments off your head. Truth is you fancy yourself a mighty adventurer... But really you are just a delusional loser whom thinks just because you know a spell or two, or how to throw a dagger that you are some how a hero.

You've come to Port. Raven; a very large trading down by the sea. Almost a small city in it's own right; the docks are over run with foul mouthed sailors and small time pirates, the streets infested with thieves, thugs, swindlers and worst of all... Other minstrels. You expect nothing exciting or unusual from you're stay at Port. Raven; but in fact you'll find quite the opposite.


Looking for 4, maybe 5 Minstrels (Myself included)

Sounds like this should be enjoyable... Will there be any form of the minstrels interacting with eachother? Where is the roleplay set? I will most likely have more questions, but that only means that I will be joining up.

Well by setting, I meant where will us minstrels be playing, such as Medieval Europe, Italy, Spain?

Hey I think Vanilla is back from Queensland.

So are we gonna do this or will I just abandon this RP like all the others?

Hell I can keep coming up with ideas and whack em up and people can just post in the thread and talk shit about how they want to play... Yet never seem to get around to doing it.

Or how about the people who who just decide to come up with the most god awful unoriginal characters they can conceive. VAMPIRE OR WEREWOLF?! Take your fuckin pick.

Name: Jarl Hagrand
Age: 17
Gender: Male
Race/Ethnicity: Human/Vorrish
Appearance: Jarl stands 5.7 feet tall; he has a somewhat broad, stocky build, he is somewhat muscular but still quite skinny. Jarl haes pale skin, blue eyes and brown hair; his hair in the traditional Vorrish shaved head/ pony tail hair style. Jarl bares a scar over his right eye from a run in with a knife wielding opium addict whom once tried to rob him. Jarl wears a fur cape, a blue tunic with black fur trims, a pair of baggy black trousers, a black leather belt, a pair of leather vambraces, a pair of bear skin boots, black fingerless gloves, an axe idol around his neck, a Vard (Traditional Vorish dagger) on his belt and lastly a patchwork kilt.

Spoiler:
 

Personality: Jarl sees himself as a great warrior... However other Vorrs don't. While Jarl may be a vicious, aggressive and violent little bastard; he just isn't tough or skilled enough to hang around the big boys. Incidentally this has provoked a severe case of small man syndrome; picking fights with bigger, stronger men whom often beat him to a pulp. Jarl is also very paranoid; typically thinking that anyone and everyone is out to get him- He is also quick to buy into conspiracy made by his own stupidity and inability to understand a situation correctly, or because someone told so...

Jarl is an alcoholic whom is prone to drunken violence, depression and exposing his genitals to nearby women. Jarl loves fighting, the only thing he loves equally to fighting is music and most specifically the Krazarg. Which he plays loudly and when drunk- Constantly. Jarl is a proud Vorr, although is a joke amongst his own people; he often shows a great deal of racism towards other human ethnicities and intolerance to other human cultures, yet takes great offense when others show the same to his people and culture. Which inevitably begins a violent situation- Initiated by the question "Are you bein racist to me?"

Jarl although a heterosexual; often fears that people may suspect him of being a homosexual- Due to the bullying he received amongst his own people where many accused him of being a homosexual because of his love for music; thus Jarl becomes hostile, defensive and quick to throw around accusation when he himself is accused of being a homosexual.
Instrument/Talent: Jarl is decent with a Krazarg; a traditional Vorish trumpet made from an oxes horn; it is a long instrument with a brass mouth piece, the standard three holes and a brass splint around the bell of the horn.
Skills/training and abilities:
- Knife fighting: Like most Vorrs, Jarl is fairly skilled in the use of knives and daggers as weapons. He is able to fight with a knife in close combat, and to a lesser degree of skill throw them.
- Unarmed combat: As expected of a Vorrish male; Jarl is good at fighting. Specifically he is a good boxer and wrestler; he also can kick quite hard.
- Leather Tanning: For work on the side; Jarl often works at leather tanneries. Although he is more of an experienced factory hand than anything- He is skilled enough to get and hold a job in the tanning business. Although he is still a low level worker of basic skill.
Strengths/Weaknesses:
Strengths:
- Strong: Jarl is quite strong for a boy his age and size.
- Hardy: Jarl is pretty tough, and he can take a hit... Or three.
- Good Reflexes: Jarl has quick, strong reflexes that complement his fighting skill. He's good at blocking and parrying punches or knife thrusts, and he strike quite fast too.
Weaknesses:
- Heat/Sun: Jarl is used to the cold and not bright sun or great warmth; he tends to get sun burn easily on a very sunny day and when it's really warm he tends to get slow and sluggish- Especially with the clothing he wears.
- Alcoholism: Jal is a severely heavy drinker, as well as a constant one. To the degree where it can be a great problem for his ability to function and the welfare of not only himself but his companions.
- Ferocious/Violent Nature: Like any good Vorr; Jarl is a little psychopath. He loves fighting, he by nature is an aggressive, hostile person and he tends to think with his fists. He is quick to get into confrontation and even quicker to throw the first punch without even as much as a word coming out of his mouth. His presence is a disastrous element in any diplomatic situation.
- Illiterate: Like many, many unfortunate Vorrs- Jarl is illiterate and cannot read or write in any language. However he still has a basic grasp of mathematics and can still count.
- Fear of Mollusks: Jarl is terrified of slugs and snails; nor is he thrilled about octopi or squids either. In a town by the sea, in a country known for it's moist winters and it's consistency of rainy days- This can be a problem.
-Delusional: Jarl considers himself a legendary warrior; however he isn't. He lives in a state of delusion and denial about the reality of himself- He also tends to exaggerate excessively.
Equipment and clothing: Jarl wears a fur cape, a blue tunic with black fur trims, a pair of baggy black trousers, a black leather belt, a pair of leather vambraces, a pair of bear skin boots, black fingerless gloves, an axe idol around his neck, a Vard (Traditional Vorish dagger) on his belt and lastly a patchwork kilt. His Vard acts as his only weapon other than his fists; although he could probably hit someone pretty hard with his Krazarg.
History/Bio: Jarl was born into and grew up in Vorrish society until the age of 15- Where his lack of fighting skill and brute strength in comparison to his Vorrish peers made him the laughing stock of his tribe; his enthusiasm for music also brought him a great deal of negative reputation as other Vorrs accused him of being a homosexual because he liked to play the Krazarg so much.

Out of shame and lack of courage to prove them wrong; Jarl abandoned his tribe for life amongst non- Vorrs. Surely he would have not trouble beating up on them; for he would be a much greater warrior by comparison. However as he found that people were less interested in honorable combat and more interested in ganging up on and beating rowdy foreigners silly; Jarl realized after being kicked and beaten by disgruntled mobs- It was time to fulfill his destiny as a warrior in ways other than trying to fight entire towns; thus it occurred for him to be an adventurer- Where he would fight monsters and rescue maidens; where he would find treasure and defeat bandits... However this dream came to a delay; as actual, professional adventurers found no use for him.

Yet Jarl discovered that he could combine his love of music with his love of the warrior lifestyle by becoming a special kind of adventurer! An adventurer that wielded swords, yet still played the harp, an adventurer who could still sing but could also cast great and powerful spells.

Jarl was to become a Bard! However while many Bards were impressed with his skill as a fighter... They laughed at him for his lack of magical ability and mediocre musical talent. However there were numerous groups of bards who would still accept Jarl; however these were the REAL bards, the down trodden, unsung heroes that people gave the undeserved slur "Minstrel" too. Jarl now knew that he would find his place amongst adventurers and musicians; amongst the minstrels of Port Raven.

Eric was short for his age, and that lead to that he got bullied sometimes, but it then ended up with that he beat the crap out of the main bully.

He quickly learned to jump over rocks and such when he and the others where playing games, and that he could climb up on houses to bring down the only ball in the village. He then left the village at the age of 18, after saying goodbye to everyone, and started his life as a Minstrel. He traveled from village to village and farm to farm, entertaining people with his acrobatics and old time jokes.
