    Sorry to hear that. Good luck.

    Is it <=6 or strictly <6? If the latter then I guess my first set of scores are admissable.

    Hello! Yeah, with these rolls I don't quite know what to play! A redshirt maybe

    Name: Athos the frail
    Class: Magic User

    Alignment: Neutral

    Description:

    Athos is a frail young man of poor constitution, but a bright mind. Despite his physical shortcomings he has a positive and optimistic outlook on life. Dressed in a simple, but well made and clean robe he considers himself ready to venture forth in this world, armed only with his wits and his mostly empty spell-book.

    History:

    Hailing from a family of masons, Athos was from an early age deemed to frail to carry on the business, and was instead sent to assist a local scribe. Despite being nearly killed by illnesses while growing up, which left him frail, and suffering from fits of dry cough, he learned to read and write well, and showing aptitude for the intellectual endeavours of magic he was eventually offered the place as a Wizard's apprentice (Lorentus the Brown). Having passed the examinations of the apprentice magic user, Athos is now eager to prove himself in the real world.

    In the rules it says the DM provides the first spells, but I took the liberty of picking two. If you want me to change them please let me know.

    I need to work on the equipment list, and figure out a bonus language. Any suggestions?

    Edit: Also, I have trouble finding the rules for using skills and bonus skills based on INT (it is mentioned, but not referenced). Please give me some suggestions for suitable skills since my knowledge of where you are and the dangers you are facing is very limited.
    Could I have a link to the IC thread?

    IC Thread:
    http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=284117

    We've encountered Orcs, Kobalds, Goblins - I think, Centaurs, Troll, Elves, Dwarves, Giants, and other non-sentient beings, etc...
    I don't have any suggestions for a language, but if you think a certain enemy race would be useful to speak and negotiate with or trick, then that might be a good language to pick.

    Page 82 of the Rules Cyclopedia has a list of skills for you to choose from.

    One of your first level spells needs to be Read Magic.

    But your next task will be to level up to level 3. Choose whatever spells or skills you'd like. Set your XP at the minimum needed for level 3.

    You'll meet up with the party in Verge, which will probably a few days in RL time.

    Yes. For now, Dural remains with you, too. When he leaves at Verge, he'll leave the wand with the Companions.
