You both realize that if you go caster.. you will have to either use blood or risk wild magic effects?  Cantrips are safe (no blood needed, spells have no risk of wild magic.. yet).  For each spell level, however, you need 1hp worth of blood to cast safely.

What blood? Any blood? Because I have 16 Con and a familiar. That's a lot of blood.

Just remember Blood magic is considered evil.. and there is prices to pay beyond just blood.   Anyhow, I will make the first IC post soon (ish), and we will see if anybody else wants in on the mayhem

Do we have  freedom when it comes to weapons? no over the top magical ancient heirlooms of course. Let's say I want to wield a poleaxe right from the start.

I do have a character in the making.

Well magical items have the chaotic magic thing going.. and can't even benefit from blood so .. dangerous to have magic items anyhow.  However here is the standard starting equipment (cost 75 gp of your starting gold, limit one..as the horse alone cost 75gp it is a great bargain)

1 Non-Magic weapon of choice.
1 Non-Magic armor of choice up to chain.
Light Riding Horse
Tent
50' hemp rope
Grappling hook
1 month iron rations
Back Pack
1 set of sadlebags (one for each side of your horse)
Bit/bridal
Saddle
(for mages) enough basic (10gp or less) spell componits to cast 10 spells of any level(not including blood if you are going that route)
Soap
canteen
enough water flasks to carry two weeks of water
3 torches
small silver mirror
2 blankets

Everything else must be bought.  I will get a list of prices and post a link to it.

Came up with a Character for this. Tell me if anything needs changing.


Name: Witold The Red
Race: Human
Age: 30
Class: Fighter
Appearance: Witold could be described as a mountain of a man. A bit over 2 meters tall, Witold is of strong build. He has long, reddish hair, tied into a braid, and a dense, well kept beard, which is also braided(in this style) Out of combat, he wears a rather plain garments, consisting of plain leather boots(with felt inserts for winter), warm, wool-linen clothing, and a colourful, woven sash

Stats:
Strenght :  14
Dexterity:  15
Constitution:  17
Intelligence:  14
Wisdom:  12
Charisma:  13

Feats: Endurance, Combat Expertise, Athletic, Combat Reflexes

Equipment: The starter pack. Witold's weapon of choice is a bardiche, and he has a chainmail shirt(yes, the chainmail chestpiece is called a shirt, any HEMA nut or historian will tell you that) for armor.



Background: Witold was born a youngest son, to once wealthy farmers of Fairrun. Even few decades after the cataclysmic wars, his family managed to maintain some degree of wealth and were able suppliers of grain to the folk, even under the taxation of the Knights of the True Tyr, who now governed the land. Witold first took up arms as a guardsman for his home hamlet, fending off the occasional murderous bands of The Wild that somehow made past the Knight's defenses.
Yet Witold always felt distrusting of the Knights themselves. Fanatics is what he thought of them, no better than the goat skin clad Wildlings. There was something about them that just didn't seemed right.
One day, Witold just packed his measly belongings and left. His parent's were already passed away, and he left the farmstead in the care of his elder siblings and their families. Witold took on the road. He eventually joined a group of adventurers, like himself. He did a couple of jobs with them, but all that camed to an end, when a band of the Wild ambushed them. Though Witold and his companions repelled them, most of the band was killed or succumbed to their wounds. Witold was the only one left alive. After a few weeks of travelling, Witold had reached the town of Winterhaven. Here he decided to either spend the winter, or find another group of adventurers to tag along.

Looks good.. but one question.. how old is he? The god wars ended 50 years ago, now there have been skirmishes between the Knights and the group from Wilderkin.. but unless he is kinda old.. not sure he would have been in the cataclysm wars.

Well, let's see here...

Name: Brugd
Race: Half-Orc
Age: 23
Class: Wizard
Appearance: Brugd looks more like an orc than a human. He is tall and wide. His skin is light green. He does not have protruding tusks, but his lower jaw is way too big for a regular human. His head is completely bald. He wears a dark red robe.

Stats:
Strength :  11
Dexterity:  14
Constitution:  16
Intelligence:  12 + 2 = 14 (after the vision)
Wisdom:  14
Charisma:  12

School Specialization: Transmutation.
Forbidden Schools: Evocation, Necromancy.


Familiar: Toad.

Feats: Eschew Materials, Spell Penetration

Equipment: The starter pack. Spellbook. Brugd carries a quarterstaff.

Affiliation: Red Cloaks.


Background: Unlike most half-breeds, Brugd was raised by the orcs. His tribe was by no means peaceful, but it minded its own business And didn't cause too much trouble to the surrounding settlements. His eldest brother was the strongest orc in the tribe, but he was also dumbest. Destined for greatness at first, he was cast out when he lost his arm and was of no more use to the tribe. Appalled by this cruelty, Brugd decided that he will not rely on his strength and decided to learn magic. He searched for someone to teach him and found the order of the red cloaks. He was not nearly as smart and gifted as the rest of them, but his great stamina and stubbornness helped him survive in the duels and rely on the use of blood more than any other wizard in the school. Once his training was done he went out into the world to seek his fortune.

Almost done, I am ironing out my character's details. What is the starting level? Are ranger spells affected by wild surges?

Starting level is 1st.  You don't have to worry about spells until like 9th level I believe.  However, as a ranger you get a wild companion of some sort.  Bear, large cat, large canine, etc.  Nothing magical, but you can .. sort of communicate.  It is a companion, however, not a pet.  It will protect you, but it does it's own thing.. you get no control over its actions.  Though if you get the skill animal handling, you can try to sway it one way or another.

Yes, even druidic magic is effected by wild magic.  Since you get tracking free.. it is easy enough to find sources of blood though.

Oops never mind, you get the companion at 4th level, and they have a list.  Search srd ranger on google.

Do not forget to pick a favored enemy from the list there as well.  ((You can also choose humanoid(Human)))

You also get spells at 6th level, but if your wisdom is high enough... you get some starting spells, and spells you can cast at 1st level

Speaking of which Geny, your int gives you one bonus 1st level spell you can cast per day.

Did You specialize..  if so I need to know what school you are specializing in, and what school you can not pick spells from.

Meet Ytil the elven ranger

10 STR
18 DEX
11 CON
13 WIS
12 INT
13 CHA

Slim and of average height, clad in a green cloak with a hood. Has long dark brown hair. Carries a longbow and a handaxe.

Ytil is mostly concerned with practical skills and favours solutions that do not require the use of force. Mostly at home in the woodlands but visits the town on occasion. Neither friendly nor unfriendly, Ytil's nature remains rather elusive.

Skills: Focus on handle animal, hide, move silently. Some survival, heal, nature knowledge, ride, climb, swim and use rope. Speaks common, elven and sylvan.

Fighting: Use whatever method available to distract or otherwise gain an edge before engaging in melee due to low constitution. Favouring finesse over brute force in melee, Ytil plans to pursue the path of dual wield.

Favoured enemies: Fey! Those goddamned fey!
