Character Creation rules see link and roll for abilities. PHB, XGE, Taldori Campaign Guide are the books to use. Expectations of the "Table"
I will DM to the best of my ability and hope to provide fun for you. I will be using roll20 for maps and tokens (this is a pbp game not a stream). I ask that you post every at least every two days or sooner. Let me know if there are any issues with posting due to real life we can work that out. I am looking to start next Tuesday.
Allister Lewis, V. Human Great Old One Warlock, From Arcana Panasophical
Ability scores: 10161312109
Background: Recovered Cultist
Allister’s family was involved in many cultist activities connected to the Betrayer Gods way before his birth. His family played one of the major roles in the cult and he was expected to carry their mantle after their death. Allister never fully liked the idea of worshipping evil doers and frequently resisted their bidding and did not attend the usual ceremonies and rituals. This however, was not unnoticed and he was punished for such behavior by the superiors in the cult and his parents. Around this time his mind became connected to a being from the Far Realm, a Great Old One. His mind radically expanded, his thoughts leaked into others’ heads at times. Although he began to despise the cult itself more than the idea of it, he still was of the opinion that this lifestyle must be eradicated from the society. Following this line of thought he prepared a plan to escape the sinister clutch of the cult and succeeded at that with the help of a covert member from Arcana Panasophical. He then reported the cult to the local forces and joined a blood hunter order to become the part of the people who eradicate such cults from Tal’Dorei. After the cult with his parents was destroyed, he never knew of their fate and made his living by hunting beasts and demons for Arcana Panasophical. He is not a good person, but he does not enjoy unnessecary evil and he does not believe that means always justify the ends.

Born to a wealthy merchant family in the city of Emon, Adele didn't want for much as a young child. This lead to a wide variety of study topics as she grew older and a fascination in the arcane powers that she watched her mother preform. She began to read through her mother's spellbook late at night, trying to comprehend the runes and spells that made no sense to her. Not long after her mother caught her studying her spellbook the first time, she began to teach Adele what she could of magic. Once Adele had a proper mentor, she flourished. Her own magical talent soon began to surpass that of her mother. Talk began of sending her to the Lyceum.
When Adele arrived at the Lyceum, she was excited. Surrounded by students and professors who were working together to discover and record new spells and arcane teachings. She also met So-Kehur Sepret, and from the moment they laid eyes on each other they knew that they were going to have to outperform the other. They were also the best of friends while doing it. Professors knew to keep the two of them out of the same classes when possible, know that they'd either disrupt the class or try to 'sabotage' each other to try and get the better grade. Students loved watching them practicing spells on each other, either willingly or surprising each other.
That's all I have for now. I'm currently deciding how she chooses to leave the Lyceum to adventure
Bard Anthony (middle name comes from a human friend) is the youngest son in House Salvathore. He has six older siblings and two younger ones. B.A. always enjoyed telling stories, especially to his twin baby sisters, and would get into trouble for his tall tales. After traveling with a troupe of actors, he began writing stories based on old heroes from Taldorei. Now, some of these stories aren't accurate and will contain false information from other stories, but he doesn't tell that to his patrons or customers he sells his books to.
Note, I don't have a character sheet, because I don't have access to the drow race on my character creator. Once I do, I can draw one up.
