The purpose of this thread is to describe characters you currently play in one sentence . No huge backstories, just the "elevator pitch". In order to keep this ROll20Con-oriented, if the character is (hopefully) playing in a Con game, feel free to plug it or mention which games they will play in. People looking for players might see some good fits here, or get some ideas for what sorts of games and characters others are playing. Here are some examples (no games yet, of course): Random (D&D 5e), a lore bard/arcane trickster tiefling born without a conscience, but trying to create one for himself in a world that makes nothing simple. Marmaduke Gallant  (D&D 5e), a barbarian half-orc born in a poverty but obsessed with battling his natural rage by cultivating an air of sophistication that approaches foppishness. Malaya Five Arrows  (D&D 5e), a battlemaster human who is the resurrected form of an ancient legendary hero, trying to live up to the legend while fighting battle weariness and personal hatred of the races responsible for her original death. Tapper Brimstone  (D&D 5e), an artificer dwarf mustered out of his clan's militia and seeking the presumed-dead military warlord who killed his mentor and destroyed most of his company.

Your character's name is Random ? So you roll for a new name, every time? 😀 GAME NAME BIO Description INVITES in "Join A Game" on Roll20:&nbsp; AD&amp;D 2nd Edition Beatrix Black gnome illusionist , playing in an Open Table, Massive Multiplayer, all day, come-and-go when you like, 2e Tavern-based roleplaying meetup. <a href="https://app.roll20.net/lfg/listing/7880/2e-tavern-ad-and-d-2nd-edition-roll20con" rel="nofollow">https://app.roll20.net/lfg/listing/7880/2e-tavern-ad-and-d-2nd-edition-roll20con</a> &nbsp; Dark Sun 2e DND Dulch'Tok thri-kreen ranger , she is one of 4 characters I can choose among, each game session in Athas, the Dark Sun setting of D&amp;D. There are 3-4 DM's, and your character can transfer between them. We all run on a common timeline, like a living world or west marches. <a href="https://app.roll20.net/lfg/listing/251865/character-creation-table-for-dark-sun-hub" rel="nofollow">https://app.roll20.net/lfg/listing/251865/character-creation-table-for-dark-sun-hub</a> &nbsp; BFRPG (Basic Fantasy) Aleena Cleric... like each PC in this game, she had her own backstory (in a temple, and a basic dungeon...) when she met a mysterious bard. The bard's magic transported her to this megadungeon, which appears to have no windows, no stairs, no exits. The party's challenge is to find a way OUT. The campaign title: "Explore Dungeons Inside a Strange World".&nbsp; <a href="https://app.roll20.net/lfg/listing/9145/explore-dungeons-inside-a-strange-world-basic-fantasy-rpg-ad-and-d-osr-80-s-number-dnd-twitch" rel="nofollow">https://app.roll20.net/lfg/listing/9145/explore-dungeons-inside-a-strange-world-basic-fantasy-rpg-ad-and-d-osr-80-s-number-dnd-twitch</a> &nbsp; Lasers &amp; Feelings (one-page, one-shot, one stat, space opera) Doon Spicer Spaceship Pilot who is all in his feelings (5/5). Doesn't focus much on how to pew-pew-pew. ONE-Page rules PDF provided freely. Each character has one stat (your watermark on a scale from Lasers to Feelings). My pilot leans towards the feelings side, can roll against either stat, but has the better chance if he uses the feels. <a href="https://app.roll20.net/lfg/listing/194700/lasers-and-feelings-one-page-game-roll20-crew" rel="nofollow">https://app.roll20.net/lfg/listing/194700/lasers-and-feelings-one-page-game-roll20-crew</a> &nbsp; Channel A...

This looks fun, I'll throw one out there! Tiernan &nbsp;(D&amp;D 5E), Tiefling Glamour bard/Warlock. A once wholly unremarkable and disappointing second son of a high-ranking noble, Tiernan was constantly overshadowed by his can-do-no-wrong-Tom Brady-esque older half-brother, which made an offer of power and influence from a mysterious entity too good to pass up, but at what price...?&nbsp;

Gold, I played Lasers and Feelings last night for the first time. Surprisingly workable and fun.
Modar/Uldon &nbsp;- a Vedalkin WuJen/Immortal Mystic; only child (Modar/WuJen) struck unconscious by magical backfire who, upon waking, discovers he's now a twin (Uldon/Immortal); seems to talk to himself often but, in reality, talks (sometimes argues) with his other self even though it may be 100's of miles away, self-consciously knowing that he is not whole he is always in search of knowledge and perfection.&nbsp; (Played in 5e in-person as no VTT has Mystic class.)

Not in a con game, but i am at work, so why not? Gary "Holy Avenger" Gray (Deadlands: Hell on Earth): A delusional harrowed martial artist who believes he isn't 'just' the town's superhero but also the town's mild mannered librarian. He narrates his life, believes he has a secret identity, and his 'library' is a run down ex comic book shop with nothing of any value to anyone except maybe an actual librarian. The town he protects is vacillating between killing the dangerous undead lunatic or letting him continue to wander around thumping anything dangerous that threatens the town. The town's other two dangerous adventurer types are probably the only reason he is still moving.&nbsp;

Always the GM, but... Bubbles (Savage Worlds Cyberpunk): Not only did is this party so good at working the party circuit, she made a business out of it, she is also the only person in the crew who is openly happy and joyful with everyone. Mariah (Savage Worlds Cyberpunk): &nbsp;An angry woman in her 30's, Mariah runs a drug assisted, hate filled conspiracy podcast with a ten of millions of subscribers (she is the bread winner of the crew) and is the only person in the crew who is activistly suspicious with the Lovecratian operatives that have moved into their flat. Danny (Savage Worlds Cyberpunk): &nbsp;A mechanical savant with an oversize cyberarm, Danny is a poor judge of character, overly trusting, and a terrible driver whose only friend in a tiny firefly no one else can see.&nbsp;

Here's some of my current characters: Baeshra (5e): Non-gendered Druid lizardfolk who likes to buy or acquire humanoid fingers for pickling and always refers to themself in the third person. Jo Eastwood (MotW): A Chosen who is 40, widowed, twice-divorced, blunt, carries a green bastard sword everywhere and just wants to stab monsters--oh and she's cursed. Sheri (Motw): Earnest 14yo vegan who sees dead people, and is the adopted daughter of the party's boss — who may or may not be a plant person. NPCs (5e): I'm the DM :P

Grenngew (5e)&nbsp; - grew up in possession of his grandfather's demonic book (he was a warlock), and while he has magical talent, tries to take only spells that can be passed off as wordplay, singing, or playing to people's emotions, hoping he never falls to or needs to turn to his Grandfather's legacy. (bard, lore) Mouse (5e) &nbsp;- a very alert urchin recruited for his perceptive nature and impeccable lookout skills (variant human, observant), he hides a lot of his past and holes up like his namesake to sleep (rogue, thief).&nbsp; The Most Interesting Man in the World (DC Heroes) - A fearless 67 year old man who is very, very convincing at bringing out what you really want to be doing instead of opposing him, tells great stories, and can break out of any restraints given time.

Ragini (D&amp;D 5e) - Goliath Wizard (Illusionist) from a town where brawn and courage are expected and lauded; her massive inferiority complex and self-ostracization (worsened by the might and valour demonstrated by her twin) motivate her to craft illusions for herself, wherein she is the strongest and the bravest. Antania (PF 2e) - Changeling Elf Witch (Curse) birthed by the magic of a coven of hags, in response to an Elven family burdened by a curse wrought by another coven of hags; stolen from the hags by the Elves, she is neither aware of her true parentage nor that her magic is twice-cursed.

Carl Saveordie (Any system): &nbsp;This grizzled and mangled dwarf veteran, with his trusty pet Rottweiler "THAC0" at his side, shuns all things new, innovative ("pfft"), or otherwise contrary to how they used to do things back in the good old days.

Haha, yep, it's "strapped to his back", along with his two-handed sword, warhammer (for skeletons), shield, fully stocked backpack suitable for solo traversing the Appalachian Trail, 50ft of rope, water clock...
All Pathfinder First Edition Kai - A pathological liar with a questionable sense of humor and a cruel disposition to those who cross him or those he considers close, though he is generally a good guy, his isn't above flexing morality if it gets what he wants done. Johnny Two-Legs - An over the top cliche pirate that sank his dingy he called Majesty days after buying it, learning to fight as a ninja in a foreign land without ever leaving the ideals of a pirate behind (a pirate never goes anywhere without his guns, all 9 of them) Lasair Foraoise - A not-so-bright fire wielding evangelical follower of the Green Man, the deity that started the society of druids, that combats his foes with his sick moves and friendly cactus companion, Spikey Boi

Medae of Sslag: a mythic Nagaji fighter who lost her people to a plague brought on by the evil wizard her party now pursues. Also, she likes throwing darts. O'range Lapin: A French Rabbit Bard who is just looking for a good time, and maybe some more topaz gems that she may or may not have taken from the party items when the tortoise and otter weren't looking.

I'm usually the GM and only play in one campaign myself, so only 1 char that is not a npc and more than a concept for the future. Oriana Penningford (20yo, NE, human variant, Divine Soul Sorceress 5/Knowledge Domain Cleric of Shar 1) is currently distracted from her quest to find a remedy for a curse over her family that claims every caster at the age of about 30-35ish, by being stranded in barovia, and spreading her mischief as a social caster there and generally not really caring about anyone but herself and her search for a longer life.
