Thorgrim Cromson (Human Barbarian Warrior)

Postby Thorgrim » Tue Mar 17, 2015 12:35 pm

Player Name: Garrett
YIM Handle: per5gjohnson

Character Name: Thorgrim Cromson
Alias: Goes by "Thor" as well amongst friends
Race: Human
O.C.C.: Barbarian Warrior
Alignment: Unprincipled
XP Level: 6th
XP Points: 32,719 [Ace of Spades 6/9/18]
Next Level @ XP: 35,001
Racial Hostilities: Generally none. Does not make distinctions between most races after growing up in the wild amongst humans and non-humans alike. Does have anger and hatred toward Demons, Deevils, and other supernatural creatures of evil.
Sentiments/Western Empire: Views this expansive power as a corrupt example of civilization at its best… ancient and wicked… growing and absorbing/enslaving smaller communities along the way. While not overtly hostile to it, he greatly distrusts it and its ruling authority. Despite how mighty their forces or how far their reach can extend, he feels what cripples them is their bureaucratic nobility and greed.
Sentiments/Dominion of Man: Views the Dominion as a land of vast wealth, adventure, and opportunity to be had. The jeweled kingdoms of civilized men are filled with riches for the taking, and glory to be earned.
Disposition: Thorgrim became an accomplished warrior from a young age, and has faced much savagery growing up. Driven to explore and adventure by wanderlust, he carries great melancholies and mirth, often finding great humor and enjoyment in danger and excitement. As a simple barbarian he is very proud, confident and scoffs at the modern palladium civilized man. His simplistic view of things is very direct, gruff, and sometimes filled with beliefs in superstition/omen's...
Insanity: Psychosis, Superman Syndrome. He thinks he is physically superior to everyone else, and often times underestimates opponents and challenges. Tends to respect only brute strength, raw power, and ruthlessness.

Special Abilities
1) Barbarian Physical Strength Attribute Bonus
2) Barbarian Toughness
3) Berserker Fury: During combat, the Barbarian may enter a state of rage that turns him or her into a walking killing machine and the character becomes immune to the effects of fatigue and pain.
While berserk, the Barbarian also is -3 to parry and absolutely refuses to dodge incoming attacks. Berserk Barbarian's favor simultaneous attacks with their opponents, doing out blow for blow. The berserker fury lasts until no obvious threats remain in view. When berserk, Barbarian's can distinguish between friend and foe. After this rage has subsided, the Barbarian is emotionally and physically drained and functions at half speed and combat ability for 20 minutes, during which time the character cannot enter into another berserker fury. In fact, the fury is such that it can only be done three times in a single day (24 hour period).
4) Barbarian Stigma: Has an irrational positive stigma of ghosts/spirits (especially that of esteemed warriors) and views them as a good omen; he is compelled to consult with spirits when weighing a large decision or preparing for a major battle. Thorgrim has a negative stigma associated with robbing graves, and the dead. He truly feels that doing so will bring imminent disaster and harm to himself or others; as if their ghosts will come to haunt and avenge such a wrongdoing. He also has an irrational negative stigma concerning mahogany wood, especially fancy polished smooth types (whether furniture, weapons, etc.). He feels that it is unnatural and a bad omen. If he comes in contact with it he suffers a stigmatic distraction; where combat bonuses are half, and skills are performed at -15% until he can "resolve" the situation, or try and get it out of his mind (taking 1d4 days)

Background Story

While most of the barbarian tribes living in the Disputed Lands are known to be predominantly filled with Wolfen, Orcs, Ogres, and Trolls, there exists a scarce few human barbarian tribes. The humans who call the Disputed Lands home are among the hardiest and most independent that the Dominion of Man has to offer. These are tough men and women willing to brave the most hostile wilderness to live independent of foreign laws, customs, and beliefs which are not their own. Instead, content to do battle with opposing clans and fight the harsh environment to live their simple way of life…

High up in the Bruu-Ga-Belimar Mountains these so-called barbarians lived and survived in a climate none thought habitable. They were called barbarians by the southern lands who viewed them as unthinking, brutish, uncultured people. However, they were often underestimated by the "civilizations" of the Palladium world. Their leaders did not dress in golden robes but in bear skins. Power was not measured by wealth but by the honor in a name and the strength of a clan.
Clans and family units were to them the equivalents of nations and armies. They were brutes, but only strong hardened people could call those bitter cold mountains home. Kings thought themselves civilized only to turn on a close friend if it served his purpose.

This was Thorgrim’s beginning. And his youth was spent in the Bruu-Ga-Belimar.

Thorgrim Cromson was born the bastard son of the clan’s chief, but was raised to be a warrior as were all the males of the tribe. From an early age conditions were harsh, and training was even more austere. It had to be, for the clan was constantly defending itself from Orc raids and battling troll and ogre war parties seeking to destroy the unwelcome humans.

Thorgrim embraced the harsh life and grew strong and able faster than his peers, which surprised most of his patriarchs, being a lowly bastard son. Too young to care or understand what this meant, Thorgrim focused on his training, consumed with mastering his weaponry and body. His thoughts drove him forward… I have been given life and will. I need nothing else, but what I make of my life by my own flesh and steel.
He saw fierce combat as a teenager.

A powerful clan of Trolls, Orcs, and Demons was raiding Thorgrim’s camp many years ago. The land was soaked red with the mixed blood of Human and Non-human alike. Strewn about one particular hill were a dozen orcs dispatched by the lone barbarian youth. While the young barbarian had survived the initial onslaught, he was quickly overpowered and captured by the Demons leading the attack.

Thorgrim and his captured compatriots served as human pack animals for the monstrous clan, bound and tied, hauling gear and stolen loot from camp to camp across the Western and Eastern Disputed lands. After over two years in captivity a perfect opportunity came to escape. A heavily armed patrol of paladins carrying the banner of Llorn ambushed the traveling column of the monstrous clan in a sudden attack. The steel clad, mounted warriors rushed through the shocked demon ranks dealing cold death as they plowed through the unorganized rabble. As quickly as it started Thorgrim grabbed a weapon off of a fallen Orc, cut his bonds, and snatched what supplies were on hand and ran as fast and hard as he could…

Thorgrim made his way through wild forests and clearings, quickly running out of the rations he was fortunate to have grabbed. Desperate and beginning to feel overwhelmingly exhausted he came upon a homestead inhabited by an experienced ranger and his family. The kind ranger took Thorgrim in and heard his story, while offering his hospitality. Reluctantly, Thorgrim stayed for a month to gain his strength and health back, and worked for a small amount of pay on the homestead. However he quickly grew restless, struck with wanderlust. I’m no needy whelp to be nursed, I must carry on with my life. I want to know who those warriors were who were able to fell those Demons so swiftly. “I must be on my way, you have been a gracious host, but I seek the warriors who brought about my freedom.” The ranger questioned Thorgrim’s leaving so soon as he could have a steady job working on the homestead… “Thorgrim, the banner they carried should lead you to Llorn. Are you sure it’s not foolish to leave so soon with so little? …your savage dress, few supplies, and little gold won’t get you far, y’know.” Thorgrim tossed back his head and laughed heartily. Silly farmer man, Thorgrim thought to himself. “Of course it is time… Don’t worry.” He smirked to himself as he packed his meager belongings to head for Llorn. I’ll show him a thing-or-three about Barbarians!

The Goldenbeard Connection...
In the winter of 320, Clan Chief Crom Thorgrimson led a detachment of elite barbarian warriors in the Reclamation of Northholme. The Bruu-Gra-Gar Clan of mountain-men worked with a unit of mercs helping to coordinate actions between the Bruu-Gra-Gar Irregulars and the Llorn-Dwarf Allied forces.
Thorgrim's father fought his last days during the Battle of Northolme Peak, the final and bloodiest engagement. The Clan Chief and a troop of Bruu-Gra-Gar warriors were separated from the main forces and surrounded by a stronger group of Trolls. For a day and a night they fought, the battle only coming to a stop when the bulk of the Allied group pressed the Troll flank. In those last moments, Chief Crom who had suffered one too many Troll-blows, succumbed to his wounds.
The Goldenbeards did not forget such sacrifice, and few have forgotten the fierce warrior prowess of the mountain barbarian clan responsible for aiding in the Reclamation of Northolme.

---Fast forward to present time---
Thoran Goldenbeard couldn't help but notice the uniquely massive barbarian shopping, one day, in his flagship store in Llorn's Grand Bazaar. After making the acquaintance of Thorgrim, Thoran has always enjoyed reflecting on their homeland in the mountains, and sharing news from the area freely with Thor. Thoran, since meeting Thorgrim, has always considered him a friend.

Background Reference Material

Concept
1. What emotion best describes your character? grimness
2. What emotion does your character evoke in others? distaste
3. What does your character need most? A worthy opponent or challenge in which to prove his worth
4. What is your character’s goal in life? Revenge against those who destroyed his tribe
5. How does your character believe this goal can be accomplished? Growing in power, skill, and partnering with worthy allies to join his cause

Background
1. Where did your character come from? Bruu-Ga-Belimar Mountains
2. When did you grow up? When his tribe was facing more and more emboldened raids and attacks from orcs, trolls, and demons in the mountains
3. What values does your character hold? Men should be free and are not owned by gold, strength of arms and a strong will are more important than anything.
4. How does your character dress? Simply. Why spend money dressing up like a woman, ha! Extremely tolerant of varied climates as well, not in need of different clothing, let alone comfort.
5. What are your character’s means? Very meager... he's a barbarian

Details
1. What are your character’s personal tastes? Enjoys the finest extravagances when they're available, but is content with the most basic of things
2. What are your character’s opinions? Straight forward, brunt, and always right (at least he thikns so)
3. What is your character’s comfort zone? incredibly vast, except when doing things un-manly or warrior like
4. Who has had the biggest impact on your character’s life? His barbarian tribe and patriarchs which raised him to be a warrior, and are all now dead
5. What are some of your character’s unexpected quirks? Won't back down from a challenge, and is quick to throw caution to the wind. Is superstitious and it can play an interesting role in his simple view of things.

Play Details
1. What kind of story does your character belong in? An epic, swords and sorcery kind of story
2. What role does your character fill? He's a Tank
3. What should the other players know about your character? He's rough around the edges, literally and socially/personality wise
4. What is your play style? I either find ways to employ my characters strengths and take the lead or will hang back and await suggestions/direction from other characters
5. How do you want your character to die? Immortality isn't impossible... and if it is, then in combat against a worthy opponent

Wishlist
Item 1: Castlerake, or some other awesome kind of rune sword/weapon.
Item 2: Holy weapon. To better combat deoms with, my dear.
Item 3: A monster slaying weapon, some type of weapon that does extra damage to the supernatural and magic users
Item 4: Magic rings or amulets: understand languages, see the invisible, provide a natural A.R. ...so he can 'rock' wear a loin clothe
Item 5: An animal companion or pet, one that could track and serve as an early warning or security

Goals
Short Term Goals:
Goal 1: Find a new group and source of sustenance, currently homeless and wandering.
Suggested Solutions (Goal 1): Join the player character’s group and prove worthy
Goal 2: Find a "home base"
Suggested Solutions (Goal 2): This is just a pub, inn, boarding house, or something where the people "get" him and leave him in peace. it may also be the opening for some of the mid- and long- range goals to be introduced.
Goal 3: Identify supernatural-evil rulers and set out to topple them.
Suggested Solutions (Goal 3): Find a cause, something he can direct his energy toward. This could be the current player quest or a subquest to collect items/allies which are the means to achieve his main goal.
Mid Term Goals:
Goal 1: Develop a meaningful relationship.
Suggested Steps and Solutions (Goal 1): This could be with a person, another PC, or even an animal (see wishlist item: Familiar above). I like the idea of finding a side-kick or orphan who Alric projects his own experience onto and tries to "save". See goal #3 above.
Goal 2: Uncover a deeper purpose.
Suggested Steps and Solutions (Goal 2): This could be a big quest or plot, barring that it could be something more personal like using his money to support an orphanage in Llorn, perhaps in reference to mid-term goal #1.
Goal 3: Conquer his past: both slavery but also the evil that befell his master.
Suggested Steps and Solutions (Goal 3): Kill the same type (or even the very same) creature who killed his master and sent him on his current path. I leave the “who or what” of this creature open on purpose.
Long Term Goals:
Goal 1: Take down “the man”, this could be usurping a correct nobleman to fostering a slave revolt.
Suggested Steps and Solutions (Goal 1): This would likely have to be part of a the wider campaign but I particularly like the idea of uncovering and conquering the demon who is influencing the Duke of Llorn and fomenting war with the Wolfen. Even bigger than this is preventing the re-arrival of the Old Ones.
Goal 2: Make a lasting difference in the world.
Suggested Steps and Solutions (Goal 2): Following on the orphanage idea above, this would involve doing something that fundamentally changed someone’s life for the good - almost a redemption of everything that went wrong in his own story.
Goal 3: Have a group of people he can trust.
Suggested Steps and Solutions (Goal 3): While this could be the PCs, it could also be those who work with the orphans (above), the people from his "home base" (above), or even a particular church.
