@pyromanNah I was referring to the unarmed human bounty hunter that came in.
I don't want to play (not real big on Pokemon) but I am very interested in how the system will work.
Alright my first post is up! This oughta be fun.
Urshok felt little but disgust upon entering this strange new realm; disgust that an entire world would bow before Aku before accepting death, disgust that true warriors and sorcerers were less valued in this time than armies of fools with guns, disgust in himself that for all of his own efforts he had been little more than a thorn in Aku's side.

But here was something that made his heart soar -- a gang of bounty hunters after his head. Not very good bounty hunters if they believed they could take him (and these other three targets of theirs) on their own.

But it was a start. He was finally making a name for himself among the ranks of his enemies.

The human with no visible weapons excited him most; was he merely overconfident, or did he have spells at his command? Urshok wasn't sure whether his amulet would absorb those spells, but he wanted to find out.

In the commotion of gunshots and screaming, Urshok took up his sword and shield and with a deep growl charged the unarmed man, hoping to tackle him to the ground.
I like the idea too, if you ever need a player.
@rocketrobie2That's kind of funny because I just started playing Twilight Princess for the first time two days ago, so seeing you use him was kind of cool!

I sort of did the same thing with building my character around a picture -- I believe the image is of an old D&D character named Warduke who always looked cooler than he actually was, so I'm hoping to give the picture more personality here than he had in his original print run.


Name: Urshok
Aliases/Nicknames: The Dread Knight
Age: 37
Sex: Male
Race: Human (Orshenian)

Appearance: Urshok is very muscular, and stands at 6'6". His eyes are a blood red when he wears his winged helmet but are blue otherwise -- the helmet merely providing an illusion to strike fear into his foes. His head is entirely bald, and adorned in blue arrow shaped tattoos. His body is covered in numerous scars; by most standards would be considered quite unattractive. His demeanor is mostly very serious and cold, but in his off-time he carries himself much more relaxed.

Carried Weapons: A worn broadsword that radiates a chilling aura -- even touching the blade can result in frostbite to someone without Orshenian blood. He carries a dagger at his hip as well, but there is nothing special about it.

Worn Armor: His winged helmet and and a hodge-podge of whatever he's managed to scavenge from past defeated foes, currently crude chainmail. He carries a roundshield from his homeland, in the shape of a horned skull, and its metal is strong enough to deflect nearly any blow.

Miscellaneous Items: The amulet around his neck is jet black and he has carried it ever since leaving Orshen, and is enchanted to absorb the spells of lesser-magicians.

Supernatural/Superhuman Abilities: He has some control over supernatural winds which aid greatly in things like sailing, or blowing slower projectiles and arrows away. He may also conjure small floating orbs of light that are useful for lighting dark places or blinding unsuspecting foes.

History: Urshok's home of Orshen was a great fortress island that stood for hundreds of years, dominating the Black Sea on a world parallel to Earth. His people were ruthless and cruel, taking whatever they wanted from the neighboring lands, and their mastery of magic and warfare was such that only fools dared retaliate. Such was their power that word eventually reached Aku, who decided they would make excellent soldiers in his empire. First he came with bribes, and then with threats, and when they still did not submit he razed their cities to the ground, and saw to it that their entire island was plunged beneath the waves.

Few survived; Urshok among them, who was a young guardsman at the time, too low in social standing to be afforded a respectable position, or to be taught greater magics. Those few survivors went their separate ways, convinced their people were fated to die. He survived in his world for some time as a wandering adventurer, a mercenary, and in his travels he came to respect the varied people and cultures of the world. Although still a conqueror at heart, the cruelty he had been taught by his people was greatly diminished from these experiences.

Eventually in his travels he found what he was looking for; a portal to Earth, to the dimension that Aku ruled with an iron fist. It had been decades since Orshen fell, and he thought himself the last survivor of his people. Though probably a suicide mission, he thought there would be no better end to the Orshenian legacy than to fall in combat with the great demon itself.
@DepressedSovietCool, I'll do that once I'm not on my phone (and therefore less likely to screw up the formatting!)

Sorry it's a day later than I said it would be, I guess I'm just a terrible person. Will our characters already be familiar with eachother when the game starts?

@rocketrobie2Hey I like that picture, is that the Hero's Shade?

My sheet will be up tomorrow at the latest, but I might get to it after work today.
