(This character interview is a list of questions you can look over that will help you  - or even others - understand the personality of your character. It's a useful tool for refining character's, or even starting them from scratch! If you're going to post a reply to the questionare for others to see, just remember

- Once information is out there, people are going to read it. Thus if you are really afraid of being Meta-gamed by other players, don't post anything that will crush the secret of your story unless you're open to others knowing it OOC

- If you read something about someone's character, dont meta-game it (meta gaming is when you use player knowledge in game that your character would have no way of knowing). Approach them OOC and ask them if it's alright if your character knows of a certain detail they've revealed about 'themselves'

----------------------------Character Interview ----------------------------------
((Answer the questions In Character. If there is a question that you feel your character would not answer, that is ok.))

Q: What is your given name?

Q: What do others call you? (i.e. nicknames?)

Q: What is your most fond memory from your youth or past?

Q: On a typical day, where in the city of Stormreach would one find you relaxing at?

Q: What is your favorite food and/or drink?

Q: Of all your accomplishments in recent days, what was your single greatest?

Q: Name one of your fears:

Q: Who would you consider to be your closest friend?

Q: Have you ever done anything that you are ashamed of?

Q: You're in a terrible accident, and your healer has no regeneration spell available. Their skill can save some of you, but not all. Given the choice, would you rather lose the use of your hands or your feet?

Q: Into what lifestyle were you born? (i.e. rich noble, poor, merchant family, etc)

Q: Have you ever found your 'true love'? Or any love for that matter?

Q: Do you have any bias towards anything? (hate elves, look down on necromancers, love all things of the warrior,  etc.)

*The interview has been filled out, though the lettering is large, blocky, and almost illegible at times.*

Q: What is your given name?

Deriaz Ironfist, but just Deriaz will do.

Q: What do others call you? (i.e. nicknames?)

'Der', 'D', or even 'Bolts', which is short for 'Bucket o' Bolts', which a Halfling gave to me a long time back. I have also been called 'Big Blue'.

Q: What is your most fond memory from your youth or past?

There's no visual, but the sound of waves is my fondest. It's the first sound I heard when I woke up out on the Harbor a short time ago.

Q: On a typical day, where in the city of Stormreach would one find you relaxing at?

In the day, I can be found all over town, though more in the Harbor than anywhere. Though I am fond of the Fellowship Guild Hall, and Jaggie's house is comforting.

Q: What is your favorite food and/or drink?

I don't eat or drink.

Q: Of all your accomplishments in recent days, what was your single greatest?

Recent days. . . I would have to say being able to take down a dragon with my friends in Blue Line.

On a more material accomplishment, I found a nice Bastard Sword on the Auction House. There's nothing much really going on as of now.

Q: Name one of your fears:

Water, and after a mishap when I was with Uxor, fire doesn't rub right with me either. My absolute greatest would be losing my memory, I suppose.

Q: Who would you consider to be your closest friend?

Uxor, though Jaggie is tied up there, just because I can relate to her easily.

Q: Have you ever done anything that you are ashamed of?

To be honest, yes. But I won't go into detail. . .

Q:You're in a terrible accident, and your healer has no regenerationspell available. Their skill can save some of you, but not all. Giventhe choice, would you rather lose the use of your hands or your feet?

Tough question. . . I don't know. I guess if it ever happened, I would decide then and there.

Q: Into what lifestyle were you born? (i.e. rich noble, poor, merchant family, etc)

I wouldn't know. . . I have no memory of my past.

Q: Have you ever found your 'true love'? Or any love for that matter?

A love for combat and keeping an eye out for others, yes. But a true love?. . . No.

Q: Do you have any bias towards anything? (hate elves, look down on necromancers, love all things of the warrior,  etc.)

If it has to do with a sword and shield, you can count me in. And if it involves any of my friends, again, count me in. No bad bias though. . .

Q: In a dangerous situation, what is your weapon of choice?

One of my four Bastard Swords that are with my at all times and a Steel Tower Shield. Wouldn't fight any other way.

Q: Do you have any living family?

No. . . Not anymore, after what Ragyr did.

Q: Is there anything that you would absolutely refuse to do?

No.

Q: What would you wish for if you had a ring of three wishes?

1. Ability to be more helpful to people.
2. Better, or best, ability with a sword and shield.
I would save the third for when I absolutely needed it.

Q: What was the saddest day of your life?

I don't think I have one. There was one when I was mobbed by 6 Drow in an alleyway, but that was only one small incident in the day.

Q: Who or What has been most influential to you?

Probably Uxor, the Fellowship on the whole, and my guild, Blue Line. They're all my friends who have pushed me to become better. Jaggie, also, has helped me a lot, with relating experiences of a Foundry to me, and other various things.

Q: Do you have any weaknesses - serious or lighthearted? (Death by fire vs death by chocolate for example)

Anything involving memory is my weakness. I try to remember as much as I can, and losing all that I have would be devastating.

Q: If money were no object, what would you buy?

A better Bastard Sword and Tower Shield, a Docent, and gifts for the Fellowship, Blue Line, and big ones for Uxor and Jaggie, for everything they've done.

Q: Of all the factions of our city, what House or entity do you enjoy working for the most?

All of them are equal, to me. As long as they don't refuse to give me a job, for being a Warforged. . . Like that one Drow. . .

VARRO'S ANSWERS

Q: What is your given name?
I am called Varro Valerius Velox. I won't give you my given name... it is irrelivant

Q: What do others call you? (i.e. nicknames?)
Minstrel.

Q: What is your most fond memory from your youth or past?
The adventures I had with my wife when we were courting. Adventurers with benefits you know.

Q: On a typical day, where in the city of Stormreach would one find you relaxing at?
At my usual table in the Phoenix Tavern

Q: What is your favorite food and/or drink?
A mixure of wine and energy distillate ((think Redbull + wine lol)).
And I like anything tart.

Q: Of all your accomplishments in recent days, what was your single greatest?
Becoming an ambassador

Q: Name one of your fears:
Spiders. Big...small....phantasmal...doesn't matter. I hate spiders.

Q: Who would you consider to be your closest friend?
Uxor

Q: Have you ever done anything that you are ashamed of?
Shame is such a relative term. I would say it's more a matter of are there things I would rather not recount. Then I would say... yes.

Q: You're in a terrible accident, and your healer has no regeneration spell available. Their skill can save some of you, but not all. Given the choice, would you rather lose the use of your hands or your feet?
Kepe my hands. I can't make music with my feet... and I'm sure to learn to hobble about in some fashion. Peg legs are quite the rage I hear.

Q: Into what lifestyle were you born? (i.e. rich noble, poor, merchant family, etc)
A patrician one. I was well provided for.

Q: Have you ever found your 'true love'? Or any love for that matter?
Yes to both.

Q: Do you have any bias towards anything? (hate elves, look down on necromancers, love all things of the warrior,  etc.)
I think the Silver Flame are stuck up. People trying to push their values onto others.
I have a great respect for anyone who is a student of the arts of speaking and language

Q: In a dangerous situation, what is your weapon of choice?
The rapier. It is the weapon of the educated... finesse over brawn. Though truth be told, in danger, my music is my most reliable weapon.

Q: Do you have any living family?
Yes.

Q: Is there anything that you would absolutely refuse to do?
There are few things... but among the few would be - I would refuse to selflessly help the House Deneith. There has to be something in it for me, and even then, I do it with great disdain.

Q: What would you wish for if you had a ring of three wishes?
- Different parents
- My wife to be alive again
- the House D to drop from the face of the earth

Q: What was the saddest day of your life?
Holding Endaria's lifeless body in my arms and being powerless to bring her back, clueless as to what happened, and hopeless with remorse.

Q: Who or What has been most influential to you?
I would have to say the Fellowship. They have taken me under their wing and sheltered me... and asked nothing of me in return.

Q: Do you have any weaknesses - serious or lighthearted? (Death by fire vs death by chocolate for example)
I cannot resist the urge to make conversation.

Q: If money were no object, what would you buy?
I would buy the lighthouse, clean it out of all its traps, have a brother purify the site to eliminate any lingering undead problems, and refurbish it into a multi-level dance hall/bar.
I would pay a heafty sum to see a Deneith noble spat on
I would start my own vineyard
I would also have a wand of endless charges of Otto's dance. Seeing the dance stylings of our lands various creatures never ceases to make me smirk.


Q: Of all the factions of our city, what House or entity do you enjoy working for the most?
I would say for me the matter is which do I like the least. I have no great love for the Silver Flame, but working for them beats doing anything useful for House D

UXOR'S ANSWERS

Q: What is your given name?
I don't know the name of my birth. But the name I have now, Uxor, was 'given' to me by my former master.

Q: What do others call you? (i.e. nicknames?)
Uxor. Though I have been called "the maiden of living ice" by my father's countrymen... since he was known as "Living Ice of the East" they took to calling me 'Maiden of Living Ice' since I was his daughter.

Q: What is your most fond memory from your youth or past?
My most fond memory is the day I got to meet my father. To look at him and know we were family after so much confusion felt good.

Q: On a typical day, where in the city of Stormreach would one find you relaxing at?
I sometimes go shopping as a change of pace from fighting. Though I find sparring is more relaxing than you might think.

Q: What is your favorite food and/or drink?
I will drink anything - though I'm not fond of 'hot' drinks like teas. I prefer my food cold, but I am becoming fond of pot pies. It's an adventure to eat one - you never know what they'll hold, and I seldom ask the tenders so it is more of a surprise.

Q: Of all your accomplishments in recent days, what was your single greatest?
Being promoted within the Fellowship

Q: Name one of your fears:
Fire.

Q: Who would you consider to be your closest friend?
A toss up between Deriaz and Varro. Varro I have known longer, but I think he may not feel as close to me as I do to him. Our bond has been growing from our work together around the city and guilds. Deriaz, however, I feel kindred to. I know what it is like to not know your past, and be lost in the present.

Q: Have you ever done anything that you are ashamed of?
Yes. Even though it was for a good reason, I still am not proud of it, and I would take it back in a heart beat.

Q: You're in a terrible accident, and your healer has no regeneration spell available. Their skill can save some of you, but not all. Given the choice, would you rather lose the use of your hands or your feet?
Difficult choice. I would say one of each? Keep my primary hand, and either of the feet.

Q: Into what lifestyle were you born? (i.e. rich noble, poor, merchant family, etc)
I don't know excactly. I found out my mother was a priestess. My father was a military man. I think life was not hard if that is what you mean.

Q: Have you ever found your 'true love'? Or any love for that matter?
I was married once. Whether or not it was my 'true love' i will never be able to know. That part of my memories was taken from me.

Q: Do you have any bias towards anything? (hate elves, look down on necromancers, love all things of the warrior,  etc.)
I am not here to judge others. I do think tactics are required in the field of battle, but no one can tell another what to do. We can only suggest.
I do hold a special place for music makers. . . I think the power of song is beyond even combat. Music can speak in ways without words, and I have no talent for making it, so I admire it, and those who make it, greatly.

Q: In a dangerous situation, what is your weapon of choice?
A greatsword. I have a better ability to reach further out with it. Few will come close to a whirling blade of that size.

Q: Do you have any living family?
My father, if he is still alive. When last I knew, he still lived.

Q: Is there anything that you would absolutely refuse to do?
Speak aloud.

Q: What would you wish for if you had a ring of three wishes?
For myself, only one. To have the memories that were taken from me.
I would save the other two to use on behalf of those close to me

Q: What was the saddest day of your life?
The day I was freed. Suddenly having an awareness that I had been the tool of another, with no will to act of my own.

Q: Who or What has been most influential to you?
The monks who helped me once I made my way into the world. They taught me that one doesn't have to speak to be heard. And that all actions/choices have a reaction, for good or ill, and that we must learn to live with those reactions and choices.

Q: Do you have any weaknesses - serious or lighthearted? (Death by fire vs death by chocolate for example)
Fire.

Q: If money were no object, what would you buy?
Never ending protection from fire

Q: Of all the factions of our city, what House or entity do you enjoy working for the most?
I would say I see them all equal really. I am a fighter for hire, to be picky about my comissions means fewer choices for work

New from the forge I was named Jagy for the strange jagged characteristics the metals of my body took. A traveler named me Jukebox during my days of the Silver Flame.

He is gone now and I know not where to find the Cannith trainer who taught me song.

..........yes.................

What use is a 'forged that cannot walk or fight? hmmm... But I am bard. If I lose my hands I will learn to play music with my feet. If I then lose my feet then I shale learn to play music through some other means  

Q: Into what lifestyle were you born? (i.e. rich noble, poor, merchant family, etc)

I was born 'forged but now I am free to choose how I might live.

Q: Have you ever found your 'true love'? Or any love for that matter?

I have found comrades. I have found friendship. But I am not sure if I have found love...

My mace and my song.

My comrades are my family

Q: Is there anything that you would absolutely refuse to do?

Yes...

Q: What would you wish for if you had a ring of three wishes?

The dark bothers me for I've only one sensor to see. Extreme heat and cold are problematic and these bug like creatures of rust are most dangerous.

Q: If money were no object, what would you buy?

Perhaps that finely carved lute I saw in the market place last day. Perhaps this ring of three wishes you mentioned before has well.

Q: Of all the factions of our city, what House or entity do you enjoy working for the most?

I prefer any place where one does not have to venture into the sewers, though it seems like the sewers are favored living spaces for most unjust cruel creatures.

 Q: What is your given name?

Long forgotten by most everyone, and good riddance. I am called Jinna by those who know me.

Q: What do others call you? (i.e. nicknames?)

They're more stage names than nicknames, really. I was often billed as Starsinger in Sharn, for example.

Q: What is your most fond memory from your youth or past?

Almost any time spent with my old adventuring guild.

Q: On a typical day, where in the city of Stormreach would one find you relaxing at?

On a typical day, one would most likely find me lost in the city of Stormreach.

Q: What is your favorite food and/or drink?

Pastries and white wine, anything light and sweet.

Q: Of all your accomplishments in recent days, what was your single greatest?

Recently, I am most proud of surviving the horribly rough seas on my voyage to Stormreach.

Q: Name one of your fears:

Being found by certain individuals I would prefer to avoid.

Q: Who would you consider to be your closest friend?

In Sharn, my adventuring companion Begel, a delightfully innocent little gnome training to be a wizard. I took him under my wing and taught him how to survive in the big city.
Since my arrival in Stormreach, the individual I've spent the most time with is probably Liyra. Her friendly, warm nature makes her a most pleasant companion. I'm also quite enjoying getting to know Jaggie, as well.

Q: Have you ever done anything that you are ashamed of?

Who hasn't?

Q: You're in a terrible accident, and your healer has no regeneration spell available. Their skill can save some of you, but not all. Given the choice, would you rather lose the use of your hands or your feet?

I can't imagine losing either. I've often been in situations where I've had no possessions to rely upon save my body, and I would gladly give up everything else I own rather than part of myself.
But if I had to make the choice, I would probably lose my hands rather than be crippled. I can still make a living from my voice, but I don't think I could stand being unable to walk.

Q: Into what lifestyle were you born? (i.e. rich noble, poor, merchant family, etc)

I don't know precisely where I was born, but I was raised in some of the worst slums in the underbelly of Sharn.

Q: Have you ever found your 'true love'? Or any love for that matter?

I've found many flirtations over the course of my career, and some of them have been useful in my rise through the city's society. But as for "true love", I'm not entirely certain I shall ever have or want one.

Q: Do you have any bias towards anything? (hate elves, look down on necromancers, love all things of the warrior,  etc.)

I greatly enjoy the company of bards and others of quick wit and good humor. I tend to avoid those who take life too seriously and aren't willing to share a few stories and laughs.

Q: In a dangerous situation, what is your weapon of choice?

My voice. I would much prefer to talk or sing my way out of a bad situation.

Q: Do you have any living family?

Not that I'm aware of.

Q: Is there anything that you would absolutely refuse to do?

Probably, but it would depend on the circumstances.

Q: What would you wish for if you had a ring of three wishes?

Ah, but don't you know that wishes won't come true if you tell them?

Q: What was the saddest day of your life?

Probably the point in my childhood where I realized that not everyone lived the way I did and there was so much more to society that was denied me because of my birth and circumstances.
That was also when I resolved to change that situation.

Q: Who or What has been most influential to you?

I believe my life is influenced by everyone I meet. I am a product of the sum of all of my experiences, and every interactions helps shape who I can become.

Q: Do you have any weaknesses - serious or lighthearted? (Death by fire vs death by chocolate for example)

If I did, why would I tell you about them?

Q: If money were no object, what would you buy?

The silence of those who have spoken against me.

Q: Of all the factions of our city, what House or entity do you enjoy working for the most?

I don't know that I've been here long enough to form a definite impression of the local groups. Although I must say that the Free Agents often need interesting things done.

((Now that he is separate from Deriaz, has his own body, and his creator isn't lazy at the moment. . .))

RAGYR'S ANSWERS!

Q: What is your given name?

Ragyr Ironfist. Remember it.

Q: What do others call you? (i.e. nicknames?)

Hmph. As if I need them.

Q: What is your most fond memory from your youth or past?

The jobs. And the amount of them. There was always someone out there who wanted someone else dead.

Q: On a typical day, where in the city of Stormreach would one find you relaxing at?

In an alleyway, or something, or just hunting a job. I don't have any favored place in this dump. . . Though honestly, anywhere to be away from you is fine. . . Unless it would work to my advantage to talk to you.

Q: What is your favorite food and/or drink?

Anything bitter tasting. I honestly don't care.

Q: Of all your accomplishments in recent days, what was your single greatest?

Getting my own body, and getting away from the runt.

Q: Name one of your fears:

What kind of a question is that? Fine. You want to know? Rust Monsters. . . .

I swear to Blades, it you bring one near me, I won't hesitate to roast you where you stand.

Q: Who would you consider to be your closest friend?

Hmph. Who needs them when you can have power?

Q: Have you ever done anything that you are ashamed of?

Of course not. Why dwell on the past? You do what you have to do to get by, and you do what you do best. If killing is your best trait, then use it, I say.

Q:You're in a terrible accident, and your healer has no regenerationspell available. Their skill can save some of you, but not all. Giventhe choice, would you rather lose the use of your hands or your feet?

. . . I'll heal myself, thank you very much. I don't need some fleshie healer thinking he can fix me. Unless the healer is a Forged, then I'll let him give it his best shot. I can always find a part to replace what I lose, however.

Q: Into what lifestyle were you born? (i.e. rich noble, poor, merchant family, etc)

Ask the runt. I've told him what he needs to know. At least the basics.

Q: Have you ever found your 'true love'? Or any love for that matter?

A love for death. That's about it.

Q: Do you have any bias towards anything? (hate elves, look down on necromancers, love all things of the warrior,  etc.)

Fleshies. I don't know where you all got it in your head that you're better than a Forged, but I'll let you know now, you're dead wrong.

Q: In a dangerous situation, what is your weapon of choice?

It USED to be a sword, until the runt decided to stick me in a below-average body. So, magic.

Q: Do you have any living family?

My creator is dead, by my hands. So, not anymore.

Q: Is there anything that you would absolutely refuse to do?

Swear allegiance under a fleshie. . . UNLESS he had obvious prrof he had an immense amount of power and money.

Q: What would you wish for if you had a ring of three wishes?

1. I'd wish for the connection between me and Deriaz to be gone. Sever it.
2. I'd wish Deriaz dead.
3. Either save it, or wish more another ring of three wishes. The more power I can get, the better.

Q: What was the saddest day of your life?

. . .

. . . I'd rather not say. . .

Q: Who or What has been most influential to you?

Besides what I've heard of the Lord of Blades, nothing.

Q: Do you have any weaknesses - serious or lighthearted? (Death by fire vs death by chocolate for example)

Rust Monsters. That's about it.

Q: If money were no object, what would you buy?

Whatever I feel like.

Q: Of all the factions of our city, what House or entity do you enjoy working for the most?

Whichever one will give me the most challenging job.
