Level 2:
Curse: -2 to attack and defense for the rest of combat
Blighted weapon: Curses a weapon so successful hits cause wounds to fester rapidly    Strength/dexterity debuff on hit

Armor Proficiency: Light armour
Items: Quarterstaff, Robes, Magpie familiar

Bio: Born in the castle to the Borsmorth family she lived a happy life. Until one day she sneaked into the throne room with her friends and witnessed the blinding of a woman who had displeased the king. Watching from between the curtains as the woman screamed having her eyes burned with hot iron they trembled in excitement. Dashing off to the dining hall they grabbed two candlesticks and headed to the stables. They carried a bunch of hey to the back along with a chisel. Having set fire to the hey they realised they still had not settled the most important thing, who got to be the mad king. Having hey at hand, they cut five at different lengths. She drew the longest one. “If you’re that blind, you might as well not see at all! Blind HER!“,she commanded. Two of the boys grabbed the other girl, who screamed “Not fair, I want to be king!” and the third one took the now hot chisel from the fire. “It burns!”, he wailed as he dropped it. “Worthless maggot! We’ll do it ourselves!”, she exclaimed and took the hot chisel herself. It really was quite hot but she couldn’t let go of it, not after saying that. She bit down and plunged to chisel into the other girls eye. She screamed even harder than the woman before. She grinned and looked at the boy who had dropped the chisel: “You’re weak! Here! You do the other one!”, she shoved the chisel into his hands.     The boy hesitated. “Hey! Over here!” A guard shouted while running towards the smoke. They immediately scattered and ran. Only the weeping girl was left behind with the boy holding the chisel.

The other girl refused to talk and a week later, the boy was executed. His mother was devastated and fell ill to the worry of his father. Two years later she died. The day of her funeral there was a letter on the grieving husbands pillow. With a single black eyed susan on top. There was no name, no sigil, just the flower.    Returning home from the funeral she just fell on the bed without bothering to close the door, these kinds of proceedings bored her to death. Who cared about some dead hag. For all she cared they might all drop dead and it wouldn’t move her. She felt eeriely drowsy. It was then that she noticed something crudely carved on the ceiling: “In the land of the blind..” Why did her eyelids feel so heavy? What is that? “...be king?” But she could not stay awake to make sense of the rest and she fell under.

She could hear her mother fuming and shouting at the servants. She tried opening her eyes but couldn’t see anything in the dark. She tried getting up but felt hands pushing her down. ”Lady should not try to get up, just rest now.” That was when she understood. It was not dark, she just could not see. She brought up her hands and touched her eyes. They felt hard. But she could not feel her fingers on them. This was it. That sneaky little rat. At first a giggle escaped her lips, then it turned into laughter. She laughed so hard didn’t hear her parents enter the room. “What am I gonna do with her!? She’s not fit anymore!” Her mother shouted. “At least her face wasn’t ruined.” “Her face? What good is her face if she’s blind! They’ll never accept her now!”...”you said she wouldn’t talk. This is all your fault. You’re too weak.”, she could hear her mother storming off while shouting “I’ll hang her from the palisades myself if I have to!” “How does this help your daughter?”, she could hear his father shout after her. “Help? Might as well hang her too, she’s of no use to me like that!”    A week later she was already at the western temple. The old door creaked loudly and a wrinkly hand lead her inside. The floor was hard and made a loud sound when her sandals touched it. She could hear other people walking around in sandals as well but there were also soft boots that just shuffled. Her guide was one of those. The shuffling boots took her deeper and the hallway changed into narrow passageways. She had to walk behind the wrinkles to fit. It seemed wrinkles was fat. After what seemed like forever they stopped and she could hear keys clinking. She was pushed in and the lock closed. This was to be her prison from now on.

*Flap..Flap*Flap…*Flap*...*Flap*Flap* There it was again. Lying sleepless in her bed she could only listen to the irregular footsteps getting closer once again. They had been coming almost every night since she got here. *chink*chink…*chink* The keys chimed as they got closer to her door. Then the flapping stopped. *Ker-clonk* the lock went. She knew what was coming next, the smell of incense made her want to throw up and her stomach turned. *Flap...Flap*Flap* the sandals reached her bed and she felt thick fingers crawling up her leg and thigh, lifting her hem as they went. She could feel the hot breath on her neck as the bed bed creaked from the added weight. Revolted she buried her face deep into the bedding. Swearing herself this would be the last time, she bit her lip and waited.

After what felt like an eternity the weight lifted from her back. She tightened her grip. Just a bit longer. *Shuuf* NOW! She pushed herself up and reached up with her left hand. Grabbing on the fabric she pulled with all her might and struck at where the surprised yelp had emerged from. As the knife met with resistance her hand slipped and slid over the blade, cutting her fingers as well. The man cried out in pain. She tightened her grip and pulled it free to push it in again. And again. And again and again and again. She kept going until her hands slick with blood couldn’t hold the knife anymore. There had been no screaming for a long time now. She felt sleep take over her and for the first time since coming here she rested well.

“AAAIIIIEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!”, a scream rang out in the detached wing first thing in the morning. Wrinkly hands shook her awake. “Child! Awaken child!” Feeling groggy she turned her head. “Oh my poor child why, oh what have you done, what have you DONE”. The hands lifted her up. “You must go. Here. Before they start.” She felt something cold press against her palm. “Hurry now, you can’t stay here. You. Must.Go.” There was a door leading to the fields at the end of this wing. She hurried along the wall listening to her foot steps echoing from the stone walls. They were getting closer and closer, finally she reached the wall at the end. *chink*, not that one, *chink* not that one, *Chenk* this one. She felt for the lock and pushed the key in. A good twist and a push and the door opened. The brisk air stung her face as she slipped out.

A cane came down hard on her head, “Stupid girl, this is a brown amanita, I asked for a red one!” “I apologise master, I’ll get it right next time.”, another hard hit from the cane. “You’re already fifteen, you better start acting like it. AAH, forget it, it’s already overboiled.”, her cane tapped on the floor as the old woman shuffled away. It had been over a year since the blind girl had followed the old woman back to her hut. Cold and malnourished she had been throwing up in the bush beside the road leading to the village nearby. “Feeling a little sick, are we? Hmmm.” Her eyes had narrowed. “If you give it to me, I will take care of you.” The woman had poked the girl in the belly with her cane. Since then she had been following and learning from the old woman. “What are you standing around for, come quick!” She rushed to her master at once.

It was loud banging on the door followed by shouting that woke her up. She hurried to rise from her corner. Seven, no, eight different voices. The door cracked and boots stomped on the floor as three rushed inside. The hut was small, there was no place to hide. Strong hands grabbed her and dragged her outside. They took her to town, along with the old woman. On the way there the lead rider was thrown off his horse and broke his neck after a snake appeared and scared the horse. One of the men had started to scratch his neck repeatedly halfway to town. Another had to excuse himself repeatedly. The sun no longer warmed the skin when they arrived as their pace had been slow. She was lifted off the saddle of the horse with the dead rider and gently put down. A woman huddled over to her and took her away but she could already smell the smoke and feel the heat from the flames. It wasn’t festival night though. Even as they moved away she could hear the leering of the crowd. As the wind picked up she could smell something that made her grit her teeth, burning hair.

Yeah but you roll low. And missed. Are you sure you used the formula? Or its just the result of rolling a d20?

I don't want it to be complicated and I don't want it to be easy either. If we, or maybe I, found this thing stupid later in time then we can always change. But as of now my mind is not working at its clearest.

You said that default ac is 10 without modifiers. Assuming +1 Stat bonus, you must roll at least 9.

So your average chance to hit is 55%. But even 75% would be annoying

The default AC depends on my mood. I'm sorry you rolled really low...

EDIT:

Get over with it Elvin. The d20 thought you were drunk that's why you missed bad.
