Name: Abigail Nightwatch

Gender: Female

Age: 22 years of age

Race: Human

Tribe: Centoraurian

Occupation: Explorer and Sell Sword for hire

Title: Rover of the Moon

Physical Appearance: Abigail stands a firm 1 ped and 2 fores tall, weighing 1 pygge and 2 hebs of toned muscle. Her skin a light tone of sun kissed from years of traveling and questing. Her toned muscles are set off by her alluring curves and perky backside.

Silky black hair falls elegantly around her soft face and slender neck, cascading off her strong shoulders to just above her shoulder blades. Exotic green eyes pierce the soul and full lips hold ones attention. Her small nose pulls together the warm features of her slender face.

Abigail is often seen donned in traveling apparel and armor typically consisting of flowing fine cotton shirts worn belted rather than tucked, leather breeches, fine dark leather riding boots and sleeveless wool over tunics in the cold weather. In harsher weather Abigail is usually seen under the cowl of a brilliantly woven elven forest cloak, passed down to her by her father.

Though very much the adventurer, Abigail is in fact part of a well off family and does carry with her finer garments such as fine silken chemise of which she wears under expensive maiden dresses and fine leather bodices. Form formal events Abigail will don a sleek cotehardie gown adorned with lace and golden trim to which she will accessorize with expensive jewelry and such.

While traveling or exploring, Abigail tends not to prim herself anymore than a merchant woman might. That is to say that she doesn't bother with make up or dressing her hair up as she would for formal events and the like, but instead can be seen usually with either a single ponytail or at times with her hair let down, falling over the silver circlet she wears that was given to her by her mother.

Personality: Courteous and compassionate, Abigail is a soft-spoken person who reflects her strong sense of independence. She personifies herself as a very capable and competent person, her confidence easy to detect. She is modest and seeks the truth of matters, dedicated and loyal to her causes and her comrades. On the battlefield she is focused yet merciful, never one to commit senseless slaughter. As her family name indicates, Abigail takes it upon herself to defend and watch over those unable to stand up against the wicked and evil that prowl the darkness of night, as has been a tradition of her family for decades.  

Strengths: Abigail is a confident and capable fighter and explorer, having gone through years of training with her father since she was a young girl. She knows her physical and mental limitations and can act accordingly. She is kind and compassionate which makes her very likeable and charismatic. Abigail has a high threshold for pain and possesses a determined spirit.

Weaknesses: Due to the knowledge of her capabilities and limitations, Abigail has been known to push herself past her limits, inadvertently causing herself harm. While not a quitter, when there is a goal she cannot achieve, Abigail has a tendency to get discouraged, which for her, often leads to frustration and finally anger. While she knows full well she cannot do everything, she can become angry with herself for her own limitations.

Another weakness of Abigail’s is that her compassion and mercy can at times get in the way of getting the job done, or even, lead her into being manipulated on the rare occasion. Another weakness one might consider is that her youth was spent confined to one providence, so there is much of other customs and so forth that she is unaware of short of the passerbyers happening through Horth during the horse auctions.

Family: Annabelle Nightwatch- Abigail’s mother (Caltharian)
        Barret Nightwatch- Abigail’s father (Centoraurian)
Abigail is very family oriented and is very big on family tradition. Her father, Barret Nightwatch, spent most of his life as a successful and well-revered adventurer, making the Nightwatch name famous and respected. Abigail wants nothing more than to follow in his footsteps. Soon after she was born, Barret laid down his sword to be with his family and had begun training local militias and warriors to bring steady money into the house. While Barret had amassed plentiful wealth during his years as an adventurer, upon retirement he had just enough to get by for a few years as he had given his wealth back into the communities he helped as well as into his own tribe over the years. As Abigail sets out on her own and her mother, Annabelle lies on her deathbed wrought with an incurable illness, Barret plays on the idea of picking up the sword once more in the hopes of being laid to rest were he belongs, on the battlefield.

History: Born in the city of Horth in the providence of Xaramon, Abigail lived a playful and loving childhood with her mother and father. As a young child her mother taught her how to dye fabrics and make exquisite clothing that they would sell together at the market. Abigail’s father, the great champion Barret Nightwatch, took any time he had free from training troops and warriors to teach Abigail everything he knew. By the time she was a teenager, Abigail was skilled enough that she would assist her father with his training the soldiers and local fighters.

Working side by side the two became well known as one of the best training teams in the area. Despite her helping her father, she continued her own intense training, both by her father and by herself. Through the years she had become intent on following in her fathers footsteps and carrying on the family name and it’s honor and success. As a young adult there had been a brief period where her mother had fallen ill for an extended period of time, Abigail having to set out to find a priest able to cure her ailing mother.

It was on this quest that Abigail had the chance to test her metal and see how all her years of training would pay off. It had been a rough journey with some very perilous moments where Abigail was unsure if she would even make it out alive, yet she had seen that her training did in fact do her well, and when she arrived back home with the priest, she set back out to roam the countryside looking for injustices. In the following three years, Abigail would be found roaming around the Cheniar Foothills as well as the Anghorth Alsea Mountains. During these years she faced many victories as well as her share of defeats. Through it all she kept on and never gave up hope, taking everything in as valuable experience to be applied later, as her father had taught her.

It would be around her 21st birthday when it was revealed to Abigail and her father that the priest they had summoned had in fact been a priest of Queprur pretending to be a priest of Nehtor, as they had believed. The priest of Queprur had masked the illness with temporary good health only to have the disease come back stronger and more lethal later. Now her mother lies on her deathbed with no hope for a cure unless the priest can be tracked down to possibly reverse his wicked spell. Abigail and her father had later learned that the priest of Queprur held a vendetta against Barret for something years ago, but Abigail’s yearning for her mothers good health had allowed her to be manipulated and deceived by the priest.

Now Abigail sets out on her own, leaving the providence she knew for so many years in an attempt to track down the wicked man that has depleted her mothers health as well as to take down any other wicked man that might cross her path along the way. While she does not set out with a vengeance in her heart, she does hold her morals against wicked folk and now looks to hunt them down like dogs.

Weapons: Long sword - Sheathed within the frog hanger of Abigail’s leather double wrap belt hangs an immaculate long sword crafted specially for her by a dwarven friend of her fathers named Kendreng Thunderclap.  The fine craftsmanship of the dwarves is evident at every angle of this blade. Perfectly balanced with a full tang, this immaculate blade with all of its intricate engravings makes it a prized piece of weaponry to own.

Elven Long Bow- The very long bow given to Abigail’s father Barret so many years ago by the elves, gracious for his help, he has since passed it down to his daughter. This finley crafted long bow is so finley made that one would be hard pressed to miss their target.  Intricate runes and designed had been carefully carved into the shaft of this bow, a true work of art to behold.

Belongings:       Long sword
               Elven Long Bow
               Medium Shield
               Half Field Plate Armor
               Dwarven War Helm
               Elven Circlet
               Elven Forest Cloak
               Steel Vambraces
               Nightwatch Family Over tunic
               Various Silken and Cotton Shirts
               Various Leather Breeches
               Riding Boots
               Leather Double Wrap Belt
               Backpack and Various Traveling Equipment
               Fine Gowns and Jewelry
               Fine Undergarments
               Traveling Coinage
               Miscellaneous Items
               
Familiars: Abigail always travels with her loyal steed Fairfeather, a beautiful black Centoraurian horse. Being from Horth, her father had purchased Fairfeather for her the same year she had begun training. Raised in the Nightwatch household since shortly after birth, Fairfeather has grown alongside Abigail her entire life. Due to their long period of time spent together and because Abigail is half Centoraurian, the two have an inseparable bond and rarely go anywhere separately. Abigail is always reluctant to embark on any quest that she cannot bring Fairfeather on or back from.

Yeah, it's taking ages at the moment because all the admins are at the festival which they talk about on the main page. Also I think they are still recovering from a hacker-induced crash, so probably a lot of their time is still being used restoring story threads. Oh well, gives us a chance to get to know the world - and other newbies - before we start!

Thanks for the compliment on the name. Her father is a character I've written about for some time. I'm an D&Der DM myself. I'm looking forward to trying this method.

Just thought I'd comment. My comments are in red. By the way, don't repost simply edit this one. A mod will delete your other post.
Name: Abigail Nightwatch

Gender: Female

Age: 22 years of age

Race: Human

Tribe: Centoraurian

Occupation: Explorer and Sell Sword for hire

Title: Rover of the Moon

Physical Appearance: Abigail stands a firm 1 ped and 2 fores tall, weighing 1 pygge and hebs of toned muscle. Her skin is a fair complexion kissed by the sun from years of traveling and questing. Her toned muscles are set off by her alluring curves and perky backside. I'm a little confused, does she have tanned skin or does she have a fair complexion? It sounds like she was once fair and is now tan.

Silky black hair falls elegantly around her soft face and slender neck, cascading off her strong shoulders to just above her shoulder blades. Exotic green eyes pierce the soul and full lips hold ones attention. Her nose small and slender pulls together the warm features of her slender face. Your grammar could use some work in the last sentence of this paragraph.

Abigail is often seen donned in traveling apparel and armor typically consisting of flowing fine cotton shirts worn belted rather than tucked, leather breeches, fine dark leather riding boots and sleeveless wool over tunics in the cold weather. In harsher weather Abigail is usually seen under the cowl of a brilliantly woven elven forest cloak, passed down to her by her father.

While she knows full well she cannot do everything, she can become angry with herself for her own limitations. Another weakness of Abigail’s is that her compassion and mercy can at times get in the way of getting the job done, or even, lead her into being manipulated on the rare occasion. I think you did a good job balancing your strengths and weaknesses.

Family: Annabelle Nightwatch- mother (Caltharian)
Barret Nightwatch- father (Centoraurian)
Abigail is very family oriented and is very big on family tradition. Her father, Barret Nightwatch, spent most of his life as a successful and well-revered adventurer, making the Nightwatch name famous and respected. Abigail wants nothing more than to follow in his footsteps.

It would be around her 21st birthday when it was revealed to Abigail and her father that the priest they had summoned had in fact not cured her mother, but instead masked the illness with temporary good health only to have the disease come back stronger and more lethal later. Now her mother lies on her deathbed with no hope for a cure unless the one priest can be tracked down to possibly reverse his wicked spell. Abigail and her father had later learned that the priest in question had actually always been a wicked man with a vendetta against Barret, but Abigail’s yearning for her mothers good health had allowed her to be manipulated and deceived by the priest. You need to clarify what order the priest belonged to, it sounds like you want him to be a priest of Nehtor(Healing God), but a priest of Nehtor would not have decieved her. Maybe you could make it where he was a priest of Queprur(Death God) and he pretended to be a priest of Nehtor. I think that would work.

Now Abigail sets out on her own, leaving the providence she knew for so many years in an attempt to track down the wicked man that has depleted her mothers health as well as to take down any other wicked man that might cross her path along the way. While she does not set out with a vengeance in her heart, she does hold her morals against wicked folk and now looks to hunt them down like dogs.

Weapons: Long sword of Focus- Sheathed within the frog hanger of her leather double wrap belt hangs an immaculate long sword crafted specially for her by a dwarven friend of her fathers named Kendreng Thunderclap. When drawn in battle, this sword enhances Abigail’s focus and prowess on the battlefield. If ever welded by another without Abigail’s blessing upon it, the sword will grow hotter and hotter, badly burning anyone holding it until let go of. I doubt the mods are going to let you keep the enchanted sword, such things are very rare. But if they do, you have to explain how it works using the Ximaxan system of magic.

Elven Long Bow of True Shot- The very long bow given to Abigail’s father so many years ago by the gracious elves for her fathers help, Barret has since passed it down to his daughter. This intricately crafted long bow has an enchantment that ensures that the enemy targeted will in fact be the enemy struck. This long bow however will not strike anyone of good moral standing or of reasonable ethics. Once again, an enchanted weapon would be rare. I don't think its likely that your char would possess two of them. You'll have to explain this one as well, using the Ximaxan system of magic. I think the mods are going to tell you to pick one and drop the other, but I'm not a mod and I could be wrong.

Belongings: Long sword of Focus
       Elven Long Bow of True Shot
       Medium Shield
       Half Field Plate Armor
       Dwarven War Helm
       Elven Circlet of Perception This sounds like an enchanted object, the same comments I said earlier about your weapons would apply to this as well.
       Steel Vambraces
       Nightwatch Family Over tunic
       Various Silken and Cotton Shirts
       Various Leather Breeches
       Riding Boots
       Leather Double Wrap Belt
       Backpack and Various Traveling Equipment
       Fine Gowns and Jewelry
       Fine Undergarments
       Traveling Coinage
       Miscellaneous Items
               
Familiars: Abigail always travels with her loyal steed Fairfeather. Being from Horth, her father had purchased Fairfeather for her the same year she had begun training. Only a mere pony when purchased, Fairfeather has grown alongside Abigail her entire life. Due to their long period of time spent together and because Abigail is half Centoraurian, the two have an inseparable bond and rarely go anywhere separately. Abigail is always reluctant to embark on any quest that she cannot bring Fairfeather on or back from. I'd like to know what breed of horse or pony Fairfeather is, choose one from the Beastiary forum. Also, a pony and a horse are two seperate animals. If he was a pony when your char got him, then he is still a pony.

Only mods can delete posts or threads. Just ask one of them to delete whichever post you want to delete. For example, at the bottom of the post write, "Please delete this post" and a mod will delete it sooner or later.

Enchanted weapons are very hard to come by, but if you want an enchated item you will need to write out its full history within your history. I highly doubt the Trueshot bow will be allowed  at all, since thats seemingly more of an artifact, at least in my opinion. Artifacts need to be approved on the dev board.
Also theres no "masterwork" in santharia, from what you placed in its description is that it is of excellent quality.
Another weakness I can see is her youth comes inexperience in the ways of the world since she has seemingly lived in one place all her life.

Aside from that you seem to be off to an excellent start.
