Meet Tristan Greyweather

Character creation is moving apace for the Labyrinth Lord pbp sandbox campaign I've just entered. Barring any changes requested by the GM, and additional equipment to be purchased once we decide as a group where we'll be going and what we'll be doing, here's my character.

Tristan Greyweather, Human Thief

Tristan's Background: Tristan grew up in the lands west of Krom's Teeth at an orphanage. There he learned to read and write common and dwarvish. At the age of sixteen he left the orphanage, apprenticed to a tanner who beat him mercilessly. Tristan ran away and took to petty theft. But he soon decided the risk of getting caught and imprisoned (or worse) was more than his small gains were worth. He chose to embark on a career as an adventurer instead. Joining some companions he made his way across the mountains to the town of Longspear in eastern Yendo. Other than his gear, he has one personal possession as he begins his adventures – a small, worthless stone marble that his parents gave to him before they died. He keeps it with him at all times, fidgeting with it when he is thinking hard, or when he is nervous. In times of great stress or fear, it becomes a sort of totem that helps him to focus and do what he needs to stay out, or get out, of trouble.
