A heavily armored Paladin/Ronin, basically a walking tank.

He is violently dogmatic. His god is "truth and honor". If he sees a wrong doing, he will confront it and either kill or be killed to right the wrong. Every battle is a suicide battle for him, although he's not careless in the least. He does not compromise at all.

He treats men, animals, and monster all equally. He will spare the virtuous, and slay the evil.

He is very formal, polite, and well kept (if you could tell under all that polished armor).

His tolerance for the inane or confrontational is infinite. Until, however, they over step their bounds.

Laws of men or gods are of no concern to him if they don't adhere to "truth and honor", and he will break them unflinchingly. But will follow them if they are of no consequence.

His over all speed is slow, but all his actions and attacks are all thought out and done with a specific intent. His reflexes within his immediate surroundings, however, are lightening fast.

He may seem to be just staring off in front of him, but he's monitoring his surroundings and people around him constantly. His hearing is exceptional.

Oh great. This guy will kill me when we meet. I'd better make a good liar.

Rev, you want such detail from everyone?

I don't see a conflict if his attention is directed at a greater task, like maybe the campaign at hand Big Grin

More is always good and I will be asking everyone to give me their reason for questing. Why is your character an adventurer? What is his motivation and what is his long term goal?

Can we expect a reason to be associated with each other in particular, or do we all just meet in an inn?

Either or. You can keep your reason secret. But basically what I want is Inigo Montoya "I am looking for a 6 fingered man. He killed my father." Everything he does is to advance his goal of finding the 6 fingered man and once he finds and kills him he gets a new goal to become the dread Pirate Roberts.

RE: Dungeons and Dragons
Like there's a big over all quest, but each character has their own motivation for it.

For example, campaign: Defeat an evil tyrant

Character 1 motivation: purge land of evil
Character 2 motivation: take over as new tyrant/get rid of competition
Character 3 motivation: loot the vast treasures in the tyrants keep
Character 4 motivation: loot a specific treasure in the tyrants keep
Character 5 motivation: get revenge on tyrant
Character 6 motivation: seek glory in battle
Character 7 motivation: got to do something on a weekend
Character 8 motivation: I AM THAT TYRANT. MUAHAHA. I'VE GOT YOU ALL NOW!

They vary in length and yeah you could pick it up watching. Granted I am planning on doing a very simplified version (at least at first) so you could join.

Don't you need to tell us what the campaign is for us to tell you our characters' motivations for participating in it?

What I mean is why did you become a druid or a thief or a Paladin (what's a paladin?) what is you backstory? I will give you a hook or two into the adventure and if it pans out maybe I can come up with separate adventures that help you advance your goal.
