I don't want to be that guy but I'm pretty sure the qunari aren't raised by their birth parents.

Some might have.. Like... Feelings. That could make him unique.

Change his age, though. A 14yr old does not a threatening warrior make. Make him 19 or so, give him that boastful arrogance that so defines that age.

I thought of making him older, but I just want to get into the world and learn about it. I think 14 years old is a good age for me to use as an excuse to get out of certain situations.

You're a Qunari. They don't really just avoid fights unless it benefits them. They are an honor-bound race, so retreating or surrendering is never an option in their minds.

I used the race as a way to be introduced into the world without connection to it. The character only has a basic understanding of his people, and after 2 years of scavenging, he's honestly only Qunari by race.

He's only qunari by biology then, not one bound to the qun and thus devoid of the culture and its ideologies

Not really sure the age thing would work though, being armed and stealing stuff kinda nullifies the innocence of youth factor. Especially in medieval style worlds. I doubt you'll find a persons full wrath directed at him, but getting off scott free could be difficult as well...

Not scott free, but I won't get my head removed for eating an apple, that no one noticed. Not to mention he has no combat experience with the knife.

So he's something of a petty theft expert? His sticky fingers don't target anything vital or really valuable?

His basics on Qun still effected his personality. He only steals what he needs, and only if he thinks it's not needed by another. He tries to not show his ego, but isn't very good at it.

Qunari do not have familes. They mate for purpose, and the child is given to the Tamassrans for tutelage and guidance within the Qun as they age. They are very strict on this and have ways to force obedience when no other option is available.

And Qunari is not race, but the people of the Qun. An elf that follows the Qun is Qunari, same as any of human, dwarven, or other birth. To not follow the Qun makes him not Qunari. If he was born to the Qun but left, he is Vashoth -- an outcast who has abandoned the Qun. If he is violent toward the Qun and Qunari, he is Tal Vashoth.

I know that they're supposed to follow the teachings of Qun. But, the wiki for it says that the horned race is called the Qunari. Should I just change the race to Vashoth?

Not...incorrect. The race is called Qunari because Qunari do not care about race... It's a bit odd, I know. But they just don't have a name for their own race as they do not require it. You are either Qunari or not. And if not, then they have names for that as well... Some, not quite that nice.

But yeah, Vashoth is the best you can get for his race.

Sure.

And to clarify, your guy's parents left the Qun before he was born so as to keep him?

This far into it? I'm not completely sure.

I agree with this, I did over look the age, my bad... as is the parent thing, ehh I can see its getting worked on. 17 or 19 works for me for your character, Tenshi.

Ro Wong is the expert on Qunari here, seeing as he is literally the only one using one right now. Probably chilled back the most with Sten too in the game.

So yes, adjust the age, and the parent thing is going to have to be looked at as well.

I'll overlook the length of your CS. I like long ones because I try to incorporate some of the player history into the game as well.


Also just a general note guys, I'm going to be posting tonight, but you won't see me again until Tuesday. Nothing serious, just finals. I'll check incognito to make sure things are going well, but that'll be about it.

One more thing, just to make this clear. Killing each other isn't permitted, but severe injury is. Be nice with each other a bit though. I don't want to show back up with half of everyone bleeding out in some forsaken haystack or on the nice rug.

Zel will mediate it. As some of you are aware, he is my Co-GM.

I'll be back on Tuesday.

Give him a painting and Sten's a bro for life. He and my mage got along the best, oddly. Both very...practical.

I can't remember, but did he get a long with anyone in the party besides the Dog?

And Draken, I hope that works. I'm struggling with the post myself to be honest. I'll get better at it though to make it more enjoyable.

The relationship between Deacon and Gregor reminds me of another pair of characters. I don't know how many of you have played Tales of Vesperia, but Yuri Lowell and Flynn Scifo have a very similar past and present relationship.
http://aselia.wikia.com/wiki/Yuri_Lowell
http://aselia.wikia.com/wiki/Flynn_Scifo
Picture Deacon as Yuri and Gregor as Flynn (without the massive amount of bloodshed) and they have quite a few similarities. It's kind of funny, really.

Methinks Ro should give the final say on this, considering his vast knowledge on the subject here. So he'd be the best judge of its completion..
Personally, seems fine to me now.

What say you Ro / Blood King

If nothing else, you may want to expand your inventory. A knife isn't much here, and what you are saying is that is all that he has. You need to state food, supplies, equipment. Anything and everything that he has available to use, you need to mention it. Otherwise it will seem like he's pulling it out of his ass, so to speak.
