Weeeell... I just lost the 45 minutes of typing I did for this, so I guess I'm going to either do a shortened version of type it all again... *sighs* stay tuned.

Due to when the campaign will take place, and some limitations of how this will be run, the following are unavailable:

[li] Channelers of any description. Too fiddly without everyone having a copy of the rules.
[li] Aiel. They havent come west yet.
[li] Sea Folk. Rare.
[li] Any character concept that requires events after the first book to have ocurred.

Due to the loss of my massive post, I'll do this in stages rather than all at once to preserve whats left of my sanity. Everyone should post the following:

Character name:
Homeland: (Borderlands/Cairhien/Arad Doman/Ebou Dar/Illian/Andor/Tear/Tar Valon/Tarabon)
Class: (Algai'd'siswai (NWN Barbarian... kinda... a bit) Armsman (NWN fighter-ish), Noble (NWN Bardish... a bit), Wanderer (NWN Rogue-ish), Woodsman (NWN Ranger-ish))
History: (As vague or detailed as you want, but it should cover their key abilities and concepts)
Physical description:

For example, my sexy Domani character would be:

Character Name: Sansa
Sex: Female
Age: 22
Homeland: Arad Doman
Class: Wanderer
History: The daughter of a wealthy Domani merchant, Sansa always wanted to head and explore the world. At the age of 18, she left home with only a few possessions, without the knowledge of her parents. Now, 4 years on, she finds herself in Caemlyn, at the time Logain is captured...
Physical Description: Thin, lithe, and attractive, Sansa is everything that most have come to expect from Domani women. She stands 5'7" tall, and has long, dark hair worn loose to the middle of her back.

... and so on. Once you've all posted I'll... continue...

History:       Having spent the last 8 years in the Saldaean foot infantry this individual has seen enough of the blight border for his share of dreams.

Deep brown almost black eyes, with almost always drawn down eye brows a top, he scowls at all in his way and doesnt seen to care who jumps where. His thick black hair is drawn to the crest of his head where a topknot is tied so the hair protrudes upwards then falls down his back.

Character name: Thalia Siell
Sex: Female
Age: 21
Homeland: Arad Doman
Class: Wanderer

Physical description: Around 5"1 and rather pale, has blue eyes and light brown shoulder-length hair which is tied in a pony tail, usually adorned with a flower of some sort. She is slim and appears very dainty. She is odd for a Domani, as she tends to dress more normally, and not quite as revealing.

History: She grew up in Dahashaa, a small fishing village along the river Akuum. The daughter to a semi-successful manager of a small fishing company called Aku-Fish, she begun life with a great interest in water and the animals that live in it. Throughout her childhood she was a rebel, her mother tried to bring her up as a traditional Domani Woman, but she would have none of it, her passion for nature meant that she would not have been able to do the things she liked doing if she had to wear tight fitting, revealing clothes. She prefered more loose dresses, that allowed her to move and bend down easyer, allowing her to examine things.
She cared nothing for settling down in one place, and felt that her life needed more "sprucing up", and therefore, at the age of 16, she left her home in Dahashaa, and begun to roam the land.
She spent 5 years wandering in the Wilderness, with only her horse, Mushuu to keep her company.
When she came across a town, she begun to rely on her good looks and charm to get her the items she needed for the basic life she led.
Eventually she managed to find herself in the city of Caemlyn, as she was forced near civilisation due to the harsh winter surrounding the place.
She itends to keep as low a profile as possible, but she is curious about this "False Dragon" that is soon to arrive, and thinks she may venture to see him, from a suitable distance ofcourse.

Character Name: Lin Illani
Sex: Female
Age: 19
Homeland: Tar Valon
Class: Initiate (1). (Aes Sedai Accepted)

Physical Description: Quite tall for a woman, standing 5'9", with a slim but robust figure, hazel eyes, and dark, mousy brown hair worn loose to the middle of her back. She appears to be somewhat clumsy. She dresses quite plainly, in fully covering white dresses, that perhaps would be considered a little clingy by the people of countries like Andor or Ghealdan, but nothing compared to the styles prefered in Arad Doman.

Background: Lin had a very quiet childhood, all told. Her father and mother are both tradesman locksmiths of no great repute in Tar Valon, and she picked up some of their skills in her time living at home. At age 14, she was tested positive for the ability to channel by a sister from the Tower, and quickly ushered away from her family to begin training as an Aes Sedai. Aged 19, she passed her test for the rank of Accepted with a few issues, but nothing really worth worrying over. Now, not long after receiving her Great Serpent ring, she is away from the Tower, alone in Caemlyn - and appears unwilling to be questioned on the reason.
