:rollin  birds aren't repptiles nor mammals, are birds...

Then, California does have similarities to Mexico, but isn't the same as here, we really have mosquitos, and BIG ones, we call the Zancudos, because they seem to be standing in those sticks some people use to walk on carnivals.

We only kill two kinds of spiders: Black widows and Red berry, cause both are dangerous for humans, and bees, isn't good to have them arround, and these days my garden is filled with flowers and bees... I fear bees and wasps, dunno why, but I hate them.

I kill any bug close to MY garden... you know, is hard to keep a garden without many bugs, but thanks to some techniques this year I don't have as many as I had the last year...

Then, if you hate bugs, the worst place is the hot house in my school at these days, you CAN'T walk because we have swarms of diferents bugs there (maybe we should open a bug zoo...:lol )

Well, Red Berry is literal traslation, so maybe in english is named in other way... Sorry Thorgas, I'll pay another two ale rounds for asking you forgive us.

i hate my stupid computer.

First off, i have dial-up as you know, because i live in the forest, which meens my computer is super slow. my computer freezes. i have dealt with this. i just cancel out a few programs with task manager and viola! but then, my computer just turns off. i try to turn it back on but the moniter just keeps on saying check for signal. i then look in the back off my computer and saw a plug was unplugged. i replug it and try to turn on the computer. it wont turn on! after i tried a few times it finally turned on *scratches arm* stupid mosquito bites. thus, the computer crisis ends.

Oh and by the way. i found a new website. don't know if you'll like it, but here it is. www.kingsofchaos.com/  if you do like it, mail me, i am The_Elven_Warrior_Of_Adun. i know. weird name. by the way. i meen mail me on Kingsofchaos, just to make sure.

Dwarves are almost always Earth Mages, though the runner-up would be Fire, so it's not completely improbable.  However, there are a lot of little things that aren't consistent with Caelerethian Thergerim - as opposed to, say, the Dwarves of Mithril Hall from the Forgotten Realms universe... (sour face)

Not to :hammer  completely bash your character concept, Thorgas, but Santharian dwarves are NOT the stereotypical heavy-drinking, overweight, rather quarrelsome buffoons that R.A. Salvatore and other D&D-style writers find so amusing to portray.

Rather, they are conservative, devout, meticulous craftspeople who are completely loyal to family and clan (think of the Scottish Presbyters of whom George MacDonald so often wrote, or the old Dutch Calvinists).  As elves are not merely 'pointy-eared humans', so too, dwarves are not short alcoholics - they have their own very detailed and ancient culture, a strong faith, a clear worldview, and a unique system of reproduction.

Please read the relevant tribe/clan entries before deciding how best to begin editing Thorgas the character.   Though the Zirghurim (magic-users dwelling on the Ximaxian peninsula) are not yet up on the site, they can be found in the Races, Tribes and Clans Forum on the Dev Board - Zirghurim Dwarven Clan .  It's a long entry but will hopefully give you some details you can use for your CD.   I'd also strongly recommend reading through the specific Thergerim entries on the site: government, sexuality, diet, and so on are all available and make fascinating reading (if I must say so myself...)  One warning - the so-called Overview is completely out of date and will be a priority of mine to replace/revise once the Zirghurim are up...

I'll comment specifically, line-by-line, if you'd like, but please do some reading/research first and see if you can give Thorgas a more unique and authentic Caelerethian flavour!  Thanks!

Character Description:
Thorgas' the "the" should be "has a" magical talent and an affinity to fire that was discovered in "in" should be "at" an early age, so he never worked in the mines nor dug tunnels as part of a dwarven life. He studied diligently to become the best mage he could, but sadly this had "had" should be "has" made him an outsider to his own people.

Personality:
Glutton: He could usually be found in a tavern drinking a mug or two and eating stews.

Loud: If you could have him as a friend, you could stay all day in a tavern listening to his stories and laughs. As Drasil mentioned: There should be some mention of how boisterous he is in telling his stories.

Kind: Inside this fat dwarf is a very warm heart that welcomes anybody.

Honest: Anybody will feel confident going to him and asking for directions because they know he will give them a honest and good opinion.

History: Thorgas' parents are very much fascinated, and at the same time worried, about their son's unusual behavior. As a boy, Thorgas was very much fascinated by what fire can do; how can it burn? why does it light? How does it help in the forging of weapons used by his people? This thoughts always played in his mind. His family, somewhat concerned about his unusual behavior, tried to pry him from this fascination. As expected of a dwarf, he stubbornly refused, and after much effort they gave up on it, although from time to time they talked to him about it. This carried on until he became a teenager.

When Thorgas grew from being a boy to a teenager, his father found him a job as a blacksmith's apprentice. Though Thorgas tried very hard to learn the trade, his thoughts always led him to thinking about fire. His master scolded him from time to time when he makes "makes" should be "would make" mistakes, melting weapons, forging an axe with no edge, burning scabbards for swords and such. "You call that a hammer?" The smith said as he points to the big puddle of molten metal on the floor. "Well, it was a hammer a while ago..." Thorgas said.
Space
One day, after helping his master set the metalwork on a table for the purpose of selling them, he sat down to rest. He took a wooden handle of a shovel, thinking about the burned scabbard that his master threw away earlier. "Fire." He thought. "If only I could control fire, it would be great." He looked at the handle and imagined it to be a burning torch. Without thinking, he held one close to the forge's flames. Suddenly, the wood caught on fire. Thorgas, surprised, accidentally threw the burning wood on the table. The fire suddenly blazed. The blacksmith, alarmed, shouted for help and everyone rushed to the smithy bringing buckets of water and saving the blacksmith's wares.
Space
"It's that pyromaniac's fault!" the smith angrily told Thorgas' family. "He did that on purpose! I won't be surprised if he turns out playing with the weird dwarven mages of our tribe! I don't want to see your beard in the entrance of my cave again!"
Space
After the smith left, his father approached him and said," I supposed you're not cut out to be a blacksmith, son, but it can't be helped. Your mother and I talked about sending you to the Magical School of Ximax, but she said you didn't have any magical talent. We know you strangely love fire, and I know you have a talent, which can be honed to perfection if utilized properly, and you did burn that smith's furniture. You can start packing your things and tomorrow start travelling to the academy, if you want to leave. Oh, before I forget, this is for you." He said, handing over a beautifully crafted iron staff, carved with runes and with a psyrpent-made crystal attached on top." It's staff traded to me by a passing merchant in exchange for a good deal of silver ore. And I bought you a tome too."

It was easy for him to leave the mines ,because even though he was still a part of the community, others usually avoided the "strange pyromaniac" and would have been glad to have him gone, and such made little friends. He joined a merchant caravan heading for Ximax.
Space
Thorgas, he "he" should be deleted was 20 years old at that time, arrived at the academy, and upon entering the Tower of the Guard, he saw many portraits, but was surprised to find a portrait of a powerful looking dwarven archmage. "That's Ungur Firehands, one of the few dwarves who mastered magic." Thorgas turned around and saw a very old human wizard whom he guessed as a professor at the academy. "If you will study hard here, you might have your portrait hanged there too." The old man said with a chuckle and walked away.
Space
Thorgas proceeded to the tower of flame and talked to the archmage who is in charge of the tower. "He looked very old indeed." thought Thorgas. "and what a nice beard." he added. "Yours is not bad either," said the elder. Thorgas was surprised at how this man knew his thoughts. The Old man smiled, "how unusual it is for a dwarf to come here. But then again, anybody who is worthy may come here and learn. A room has been prepared for you; rest yourself and tomorrow class will be in session."
Space
Thorgas studied very hard at the academy, learning spells and transcribing the reagents in his tome. He also spent some time practicing and improving his concentration.
Space
Years passed, and finally he's reached level six, at the age of 60. Sixty should be around eighty to early ninties. IMHO He decided to go home for a while and then afterwards continue his studies at the academy.

Thorgas was travelling along a path to his home when he heard a bunch of squeals nearby. He approached the source, with staff in his hand, and found a rather large piglet lying on its side, beside it a broken crate and some fruit seeds scattered. The pig, after seeing Thorgas kneel down to take a look, jumped up and looked at him, and then looked at his pouch. Immediately, it approached the bag and ate Thorgas' meal out of it. Thorgas laughed, realizing that it wasn't hurt, just hungry. He decided to keep the pig as a familiar and called him Buri, and afterwards continued his journey home.

He got home just in time for supper, and was welcomed by his family, but the other dwarves, seeing the 'pyromaniac' in their mines again gave a sigh and went on with their chores, some prepared buckets of water, just in case. Thorgas stayed there until he became 90 years of age. His age should be altered to reflect an older age at the time of his graduation from Ximax.
Space
Time came for his of Age of Choosing. As expected, with those dwarven 'wolves' prowling about and his reputation as a pyromaniac, he didn't find any mate, nor did the females want him 'accidentally' burning their furnitures. As a result, he has no mate, and therefore decided to focus only in his studies.
Space
He decided that he would returned to Ximax, with his pet pig Buri, now his companion, to continue studying fire magic, but right now he will remain within the mines and perhaps dig a cave for himself in which to call home.

Integrate Lady Judiths comments and I shall return to go over this once more.

~Bows gracefully and departs~
