If you'd rather, I can roll for you, but I felt it might be more interactive if you rolled them yourself.

are subject to both high and low justice. You may not remain in a town or city after being asked to leave by
the mayor, clergy, noble, or royalty
Homeland: The Jungles of the overgrown Brush District of CandleGlow, a member of one of the clans residing in the district. The district leadership is described by outsiders as Kakistocracy, or, rule by the least qualified and the worst of the inhabitants; this is due to a recent clash when the previous rulership of the district was overthrown by a societal revolution.

This puts you at +1 to all Wit-related rolls, instead of +0, and you now can have 1 Known Survivor Environment instead of 0, and you may choose one action type to become apt in by default (which gives you +1d4 to all rolls made on that action type).Your Soul Rating has also gone up to the next tier. This puts you at +4 to all Soul-related rolls, instead of +3, gives you +40 maximum sanity points instead of +30, and brings your mirth up to +4 instead of +3.
You may now choose an archetype from the archetypes below.
Suggested Archetype (to receive the most XP)
The Pardoner (Vigor and Soul)
Faith, forgiveness, and punishment; makes up the pardoner’s path. Traveling the land, hearing
the sins of the penitent, offering forgiveness for a fee and punishment to enemies of godhead. The
Pardoner is a welcome party member for their faith and ability to absolve sin.


Other Archetypes available to you (Also great choices)
The Blackguard (Yare)
Gold, Ambushes, and Treachery; the path of the blackguard is a bloody one. Blackguard always
believe survival and prosperity trumps any notions of chivalry. Blackguards specialize in the hunting and
killing the races of men. The blackguard is a welcome party member for their lack of scruples and
pragmatic attitude toward combat.
The Cypher (Soul)
Gnosticism, psychic mastery, and the mass unconsciousness; this is the path of cypher. The
cypher are practitioners of psychic arts; they seek to control their earthy desires as they master the
orgone energy that flows through all things. The cypher knows the price ego exacts on those with great
power; thus, they keep themselves humble- unlike their magi counterparts. The cypher is a welcome
party member for their psychic powers and vast wisdom.
The Fool (Luck)
Fate, luck, and luck; this is what governs the life of the fool. To them it is better to live by the
chances of fortune than by grit of hard labour. Fools travel hither and thither in search of adventure and
jolly cooperation. The fool is a welcome party member because at least everyone in the party then
knows who the fool is.
The Heretic (Soul)
Sin, blasphemy, and mercy; this is the path of the heretic. Heretics ignore the dogma of the
church, offering absolution of sins for free and spouts offensive blasphemy on love, tolerance, and
peace. Perhaps in a softer world such wanton and flippant sinners would be viewed as saints. The
heretic is a welcome party member for their ability to absolve sin and care for the lost.
The Hunter (Yare)
Exotic trophies, dangerous locals, and deadly weapons; the path of the hunter is overgrown with
brambles and death. Hunters rely on their speed and cleverness to trap and kill their prey. From the
primal savage to the renowned explorer, hunters exist the world over. The hunter is a welcome party
member for their survivalist knowledge and combat abilities.
The Pilgrim (Soul)
Evangelism, godhead, and travel; this is the lot of the pilgrim. A pilgrim is a traveling devotee of
a faith. They spend their time paying reverence to godhead and spread their faith’s gospel and teachings
to the world. Depending on their faith their sermon may be one of mercy or hellfire. The pilgrim is a
welcome party member for their faith and devotion to godhead.
The Thief (Yare)
Wily, sneaky, and clever; the thief always has their tunnels dug and ready for a quick escape.
The thief is a welcome party member for their cunning guile, stealth and deadly ambushes.
The Viking (Vigor)
Pillage, blood, and glory; this is the wild life of a Viking. These ruthless warriors travel the land in
search of loot to haul back home. The Viking is a welcome party member for their violence and
fearlessness.
The Warrior (Vigor)
Death, war, and steel; that is the warrior’s trade. From the taciturn mercenary, to the common
footman, or the elite royal guard, there are always those in each culture who prefer swords, not words.
The warrior is a welcome party member for their mighty and their Occam’s razor approach to problem
solving- the simplest solution to a problem is kill everything that causes a problem.
After you have done these, you will be expelled from CandleGlow to join the Foray.

Ivor watches in silence as Mara and Barbados approach the hooded figure who has revealed himself, brandishing a torch.

The figure removes his hood, revealing the slightly-aging, worn, and dirty face of a peasant. He looks back and forth from Barbados to Mara, his face going through looks of confusion, disdain, and amusement.

"What are the two of you doing out here, completely naked?!" He asks quizzically, trying hard not to look at Mara's naked form.
"I didn't think anyone was around here anymore, and I like to take walks here."
Then a look of recognition flashes across his face, and he glances up the tall hill to the city of CandleGlow.
"Are you..." his words trail off in amazement, as he continues to shift his gaze from Barbados' face to Mara's, careful not to let his focus drop below their eye-level.

Barbados' stomach growls audibly. The hunger pangs are becoming fierce, since he hasn't eaten anything for quite some time, despite Mara giving him a ration of food.
"Greater than I, none. Less than I, none. For I am Chayrus. All shall be one, as I am."

"We are from the Foray, if that's what you're asking. Do you know where we can get some clothes?"

Ivor stands up slowly from the behind the rock. "Well, at least you don't seem to be dangerous. And before you ask, yes, I am part of CandleGlow's foray." Ivor stretches his back as his fluffy tail contorts behind him. "Pleasure to see something besides rubble. My name's Ivor, Ivor Fletcher. That's Mara, and that's Barbados. Have any good places to search around here?"
"And fear struck the hearts of the dodos, as they realized they were being watched..."

The peasant smiles wryly, revealing a set of rotten yellow teeth.
"My name is Caldris. There has never been a Foray in my lifetime, but I have heard many tales of the Forays, and how they ruthlessly take things they want and leave without a moment's notice. I won't give you a thing if you're going to be as cruel as the legends speak of them to be!"
(Default NPC reaction to the group is hostile, due to the low Charm level of everyone)
"Greater than I, none. Less than I, none. For I am Chayrus. All shall be one, as I am."
