The Eternity Showcase Character Enrichment Thread

Recommended Posts

Hello, and welcome to the Eternity Showcase Character Enrichment Thread. Perhaps one day you were walking on the street or doing whoever knows what, and thinking of the standard thing (Pillars of Eternity, of course!), and you got a really cool idea for your main character. This is the thread where you try to delve back into your memories and bring out the amazingness you dreamt up on a whim. Furthermore, if you need ideas or just want people to see the glory you have invented, then this is the place! Indeed, the Eternity Showcase Character Enrichment Thread is just that! A thread where you showcase your character to enrich them.
Some of you may ask "But random guy who just made his second post, isn't PE just too young for us to start? We just don't know enough about the world!", or perhaps, the primeval, "Your thread sucks!" this may be true, but remember that the way a character is made (I.E. At the beginning of the game) no one technically knows anything about the story anyway, so any such casus belli is futile. This thread isn't only for those who have made a full character complete with a genealogy and biography to boot, but also those who just have an interesting character concept that they want to share, or perhaps a rough-around the edges character they've been using since pen and paper. Anything goes here, so long as your character isn't uber haxor l33t and all that nonsense. Nobody likes a 'perfect' character. I'm looking at you Godlike players. (I kid, I kid)
So, where do we all start? I'm sure you all got your thinking caps on and your keyboards ready to be mashed with all the keyboard warrior skills you have acquired on this forum. Well, the only place TO start is to sneak off to another forum filled with PnP enthusiasts trying their hand at a virtual approach to their madness, and requisition a character template for you guys to use.


It is important to reiterate that this template is entirely optional, and only serves to help you guys organize a befuddled mind in need. Some of these options aren't even available to use yet, for instance, a complete list of deities or languages is simply not present. That's fine, we'll get that as-we-go, we can do without until those are a thing. Hopefully this thread will last until PE releases, and maybe longer.


Well, that's all there is to it. Let's hope we see some awesome characters and such.

Befuddled minds, great-cat druids, Dyrwoodans with hobbies ... all of these groups face an imminent sunset to their mortal existence. My dark paladin ... who has yet to reveal a moniker, grandiosely fear-inducing though it must surely be ... is on the precipice of laying waste to the Aedyr Empire. Bleak Walking has never been more ominous on the wind.


His magnificence is rumored to be death godlike, both in race and intent. Night-blue plate armor protects his darkness from pitiful piercing attempts, wrapped in inextinguishable Flames of Devotion. From a distance, cowering foes are beheaded, then crushed under the massive weight of an enchanted poleaxe. Up close and so personal as to smell the leather and blood in their final act, whimpering fools are ended by a double-bladed sabre.


Disposition is inexplicably, equally Cruel and Rational, except in the appearance of Sworn Enemy great-cat druids, wherein an Aggressive bent lasts exactly as long as the life of the druid.


Sleep, now, monarchy to the Aedyr ... dream the last dream before the sun shines its last ...   

All Stop. On Screen.

Template For Character Creation:


First Name: Herne

Last Name: Bearsbane



Race: Human

Age: about 25 winters

Height: Average

Weight: Average

Eyes: Two (Brown)

Hair: Long and possibly dreaded

Facial Hair Style: Clean Shaven, Thick-Eyebrows


Personality Profile:

General Health: Well, he smells like a Druid, but he's in good health

Deity: Will have to see which one fits a druid best.

Initial Alignment: Vertical (PoE doesn't have alignments as such but he'll be closest to Chaotic Good)

Profession: Woodsman

Base Class & Proposed Development:  Druid - specialising in Spirit-shifts - I like that Stag-form

Habits/Hobbies:  Likes collecting acorns for some reason.  He strings them on a necklace

Languages: Fluent in the calls of the wild and Glanfathan

Weapon of Choice: Staves or Spears, maybe a short-bow for ranged.


Background:  Raised by a small group of druids to understand the necessary balance of nature.  Left when he was old enough to understand the wider world.  ... wait, that's boring... he left because the druid-clan were eaten by bears. ... yes, that's better - now he wants to figure out if they ever knew diddly about balance and nature or were just too dumb to stay away from bears.


Goals: Oh, he wants to grow in power so he can help people (especially if they're in danger of being eaten by bears).


Possible Plot-Hook Ideas and Misc Facts:

He looks like my avatar.  He will immediately challenge anyone who is throwing rocks at bears.  He is afraid of spiders, ever since one dropped on his head as a child, and is unable to fight anyone else until all of the 8-legged vermin have been eradicated, preferably with fire.

I was honestly just going to ignore this based on the tl;dr, but you're self-aware of what you're doing so now we're in a whole other ballgame.


I will make every character of every sex, race and class. Rolling characters is my methamphetamine. I will not be satisfied. Ever.

Loves her creature comforts and strongly believes she will return to the life she deserves one day.

Remember: Argue the point, not the person. Remain polite and constructive. Friendly forums have friendly debate. There's no shame in being wrong. If you don't have something to add, don't post for the sake of it. And don't be afraid to post thoughts you are uncertain about, that's what discussion is for.
Pet threads, everyone has them. I love imagining Gods, Monsters, Factions and Weapons.
