Fighters, Thugs, Soldiers, Mercenaries, Sometimes even Pirates. They go by many names and in many groups of those who have done great things have at least one within their group of companions.But frankly, they always have the worst of the worst compared to many. They have no innate Magical Talent, they cannot speak to animals, and they cannot even enter a rage like Barbarians can.But many have such potential they could grow into an extremely powerful Fighting force the realms have never known nor thought of. Though all Fighters must learn how to battle. This is where you come in good fellows. Who shall lead the Fighter's Guild in a new city to bring about the greatest Fighters the world has known?A: Sir Lawrence: Chaotic Neutral. A tall Dragonborn (Black) about thirty five years old, a former adventurer and current Noble in the council of a king in a grand metropolis of people.B: Lord Ironshaft: Chaotic GoodA Lord of Dwarves living within the mountains far from many. While the people of these lands are hardy the dwarf can boast fine training from many on his journeys and war.C: Lady Lenne: True NeutralA Fighter and Lady ruling over he father's lands. She did go on her fair share of adventures and war bands but now she hopes to turn her ancestor's lands into a grand Fighter's Academy!D: Write in.Each have hidden bonuses. Vote on each and first to 5 Wins.
>>27454798>A: Sir Lawrence
>D: Write inErik NobleRat Lawful GoodErik is a pirate but he is no black hearted criminal. He travels across the sea to bring punishment to those who need it. His crew are paid there Shari and are treated like family. He is working as the guild leader because he needs a corporation behind his back to help him find his daughter. Although he isn't the strongest fighter he makes up for what he lacks in brawn with wit and the brawn of others
>>27454798A: Sir Lawrence: Chaotic Neutral. I like Dragonborn, and being nobility ought to be rather useful.
>>27454798C. Though are we allowed to modify their personalities and fighting style?I'd prefer it if the Lady was a Fighter who used her head, out-thinking her opponents more often than not, and always being prepared. Victory comes through long preparation and extensive calculation, not rushing in and fighting to achieve victory.
>>27454798>A: Sir Lawrence: Chaotic Neutral.
>>27454957Sounds fun. This.

I'm probably being uncharitable, but how many are voting for the Chaotic Neutral just so they can justify doing whatever lolrandumb thing they want because of the alignment?
>>27455010No, they each have a different weapon depending on their race and location.
>>27455048Most likely all of them. I kind of want to play the pirate myself by majority rules
>>27455079A Lawful Good pirate would be more akin to a privateer, wouldn't they? Since they have a Writ of Marquee they are working within a legal and codified framework. Or would he be a pirate to whom the Code is a set of rules, not just some guidelines?
>>27455048You got me.

>>27455149Is that really too hard for you to imagine?That's a pity. But try harder.
>>27454798>A: Sir Lawrence: Chaotic Neutral. Why? Because fuck you, I'm a Dragon(born).
>>27455017Sir Lawrence is the winner by Majority Rules.-------Sir Lawrence sat at the edge of the Metropolis and nodded as the people he had sent built his new large Academy beyond the walls of the Capital City. He smiled as the final bits and bobs were put into place, much of it now decoration mixed in with the fortress walls.He stepped within and breathed deeply, most of his gold and old favors of many had gone into building this place and much more would come to pass in not only profit but seeing others like he was when he was younger succeed was something he savored thinking of.But he had much to do before he could open his academy of fighters proper. He had to find proper people to be students for his first classes and others to work around. He had one of his old friends working nearby as a healer in a medical wing near the temple of the gods he had built within the walls.Along with it he checked his Spear, sharpened Mithral head with a Ironwood handle was perfect for him and much of his armory consisted of simple weaponry.But he had to make some money back somehow along with attracting students...he looked to the letters in his pack and read them over after putting his Monocle on to see what those who had heard of his project were offering him.A: Letters from some of the Rich and High HousesB: A letter from the Grand General of the King's Court (An old friend who had become very distant)C: A Letter from a guild of Blacksmiths.D: An unmarked envelope on seemingly filthy paper.
Chaotic Neutral makes for poor leaders.True Neutral doesn't make sense as the whole poimt of the guild is to upset the status quo by producing exceptional fighters into the world.Some random Dwarf who lives in bumfuck nowhere is a poor choice too, people need to relate to their leaders, particularly if we're talking about disenfranchised warriors and ex-soldiers from Human-dominated cities.Can we have a D?>Descrates, Blade of the Legion>Neutral Good>The ex-Champion of his Legion, this stalwart fighter grew up in the docks, immersed in the culture and goods of foreign merchants. In his youth, he answered his king's call to war with neighbouring states and joined the Legion.>Proving himself to be a capable commander and expert swordsman, Descartes fame grew to a legend in his Company. He served as the Champion of his company, and soon bested all others to claim the title of Blade of the Legion.>An expert leader and warrior exemplar, known for his charisma, skill and fighting spirit.

Seems we made the right choice
>>27455456He nodded to himself and put the other letters in his desk in his office, a gift from a noble he had saved from a malfunctioning warforge, and set off out of the building. Mounting his horse he set off into the city, he breathed deeply of the air and sighed contently. None would attack him outright here, not when he was one of the heroes of the kingdom. As he road along he saw something happening not far along, a small Giant had stopped all traffic going in and out of a certain road and was arguing with an Orc dressed in leather.Sir Lawrence didn't need to go this way...there was a faster rout to the King's Castle in the center of the city. But this didn't seem to be ending peacefully any time soon.A: See what is going on, observing from afar.B: Ignore it, and head for the castle.C: Go forward and ask them what is going on.D: Write in
>>27455524What...the hell is that?
>>27455650a dick analyzer
>>27455586C: Go forward and ask them what is going on.
>>27455802Riding forward Sir Lawrence adjusts his chainmail and other light armor for moderate protection and whistles as the two parties continue to argue."What is going on here you two? You are causing a disturbance within the city." The Dragonborn said eyeing them both carefully."Tiny Orc steal Ginnlen's Club." The Giant said growling and reaching for what looked like a huge totem pole near the orc who pushed it away."Not a club, Totem Pole of Ancestors. You stole it first and now I take it back!" The said growling and pulling what looked like a battered hand-axe from his belt.What do you do?A: Help the GiantB: Help the OrcC: Call the Guard.D: Write in
>>27455853D: Write in"Mr. Orc, how exactly do you intend to bring a totem pole that big back to your home by yourself? It looks rather heavy and I don't think you'd want to drag your Totem Pole of Ancestors through the mud.Mr. Ginnlen, is it really that important that it's this specific club instead of a different one? Maybe even a better one. It could be even bigger.So now that we've covered that, Mr. Ginnlen, why don't you bring that totem pole back to where you found it, it's very important to them. I'm sure that Mr. Orc here would be willing to help you make an even bigger and better club from some tree if you did that and helped out a bit. Now that a mutually agreeable middle ground has been reached you can both DO WHAT I FUCKING SAY AND GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE MIDDLE OF STREET! YOU'RE HOLDING UP TRAFFIC!"
>>27456009The Orc and Giant look at one another than at Sir Lawrence and nod. Mumbling in agreement the Giant is allowed to pick up the Totem Pole once again and the Orc leads them through to a gate not far from where they currently were. With a curt nod and smile he road off toward the King's Castle and headed toward the Royal Barracks. Where the elite and Generals were currently staying in this time of Peace. "Ah, Lawrence!" Said a loud voice from across the training fields where a few large beasts of war were being trained. The voice came from a half-orc about seven feet tall wearing heavy plate-mail with symbols of the god of war."Good to see you've gotten my Letter. I was hoping you would join me, I've had much to do with the skirmishes with the Ice Goblins to the north." He grinned showing you his rather solid smile with a few missing teeth, one of which Lawrence had knocked out himself during a drunken brawl when they met."Good to hear that, battles seem to be going well if you can train beasts like these..." Lawrence said gesturing toward one of the small Drakes who were being trained as a war mount for a few humans. Most of them were being thrown off or bitten but it was going better than the last Bullet training session."Speaking of...I need a favor of you, for the army. I have many new recruits coming in from recently conquered lands to the east who have...training of a grunt. I'll pay each of their way along with support of me own Warbeast training outfittin' ifin' you do me this."A: Of course, sounds perfect for my new students.B: That would be a lot of coin and mounts...but for a friend I'd only do the best.C: I am interested in the War mounts, less of the grunts. Tell me about them.D: Write in
>>27456180A: Of course, sounds perfect for my new students.This does sound like a nice offer. Though ask further about it, get numbers and figures we can look at.
