 Gromish Valen

 The house of Winterbane
★ Provide a detailed and well thought out biography for your Character - include your characters history, age, characteristics, appearance and any other relevant information :

Gromish is a fish out of water. This thin lanky boy was Ironically born to a War hardened Barbarian, who was not to keen to how his son had turned out. In his youth Gromish rather than playing outside and building up their strength with the other boys, Gromish spent his time indoors studying the ways and the history of the world. His mother was surprisingly supportive of his studying and often told him stories and myths that she had picked up in her lifetime. He was fascinated by extraordinary feats such as men producing fire from their hands, teleporting across the world and back, and healing crippling wounds with a snap of their fingers. Naturally his father was not so supportive and attempted to shape his son into a warrior ready for battle, he trained him in how to properly strap armor on and how to wield a weapon. No amount of Winterbane blood would give him the physical potential to become a skilled warrior...or any kind warrior at that. He learned how to wear armor and wield an ax, but do to his gangly stature his mobility was severely cut and he couldn't stand against anyone, without the armor and a dagger however he became quick enough to hold his own against the average man on a good day. His father realized that his son wouldn't be the warrior he anticipated and gave up training him at the age of 12. His father attempted to become supportive of his sons hobbies and ambitions in life, he gave Gromish numerous books to study as well as a small alchemy set. Gromish loved the alchemy set his father gave him and spent much of his time fiddling with different concoctions of varying effects. His potions never had any great affects, only simple potions of weakness and some other quite awkward potions. During his teenage years he worked odd jobs such as a shopkeepers assistant. At the age of 22, he was trying a new potion recipe he had been working on, but something went wrong resulting in an explosion. His father burst into his small laboratory with unstoppable rage. His mothers words did not calm the raging bull, and his father screamed about how he had to be cursed an unusual son. In his rage he drove Gromish out of the house, telling him to not come back until he was a son he could be proud of...Gromish's story starts in Borealis.

★ A ship is bound to take you to your home county. You are told by the ships captain that the journey may take several weeks. What items do you take and why? : I take a small collection of books to read as well as an alchemy set with some reagents and my recipe book to keep me busy during the voyage, and a small iron dagger for defence.


★ Rumours sweep your home town of bandits and thieves en route causing carnage on their way. What actions do you take? : I supply some strength potions to the local wariors, barricade my home, and sharpen my dagger.

Fair question. We are currently running 1.4.2 If you client is 1.4.3 you will still be able to play. Minecraft has updated to 1.4.4 today, which we have NOT updated to, as we are awaiting for bukkit to update.

As soon as there is a build available we will go ahead and update.

Alright, thank you very much. I unfortunately did update so I will run MC Nostalgia real quick and downgrade. I've also just applied on your forums, as I saw it wasn't required to post here.

In Game Character




★ Character Name :
 Sven Celery
★ Which house do you serve? :
 Sarrowmerk
★ Provide a detailed and well thought out biography for your Character - include your characters history, age, characteristics, appearance and any other relevant information :

Sven Celery was born in a small peaceful village in Sarrowmerk. His mother new the little brown baby that cast from within her would be welcomed with loving arms to the household. Sven and his brother, Vincent, was raised by his mother- a potter, and father- a gardener. He and Vincent did their chores and finished the studies their mother had given them in the mornings and played out in the forest in the afternoon. Vincent was very strong and gained attention from quite the amount of ladies. The brothers lived their peaceful lives of comforting routine their childhood when puberty struck. Vincent went off to the military and Sven started to think about his own future.
Sven Celery became an apprentice at the local apothecary. He was eagar to finally get some responsibilities. He quickly became friends with his mentor and was passionate about his new studies. Vincent kept good contact with his younger brother and was a fine soldier. Sven learned potions ambitiously and sent his brother back energy drinks and boosters. As Sven advanced in his studies people started seeing him as an involved and appreciated member of the community. When he wasn't with at the apothecary he was helping the sick with healing potions or working at a daycare for the village children. He also loved to help his father garden. Sven loved the organic, Eco-friendly, potion brewing lifestyle. So by age 20 he realized he was getting cooped up in his beloved town and it was time to leave his cocoon and fly out like a butterfly into manhood. He would travel around Elysion!
Sven Celery first journeys west to the mountains of the House of Stormhammer. He came excited with a good attitude, but alas he was disappointed. He thought these polluting pigs don't appreciate the land that gives the m life, they tear it up with greed. He felt a surge of pride in his own House of Sarrowmerk. Although this was the first house he visited, maybe the next one will be better. Sven traveled south to Winterbane. He was not used to this cold climate. He entered the city and admired the foreign culture. He went to a local bar and tried to talk to some people, they were imedietly rude and called him names. Rude and rowdy, thought Sven. A fight broke out over a spilled drink. Sven stood in shock, for back home everyone was so much more loving. If someone spilled a drink people came to clean it up. This was a group a barbarians Sven did not want to be around. He went north west to Darrowmere. Sven came grumpy, not expecting much, but thankfuly the people were nice! Sven was amazed at their method of farming, for he was used to the simple gardens. He made good friends and learned a couple new potions. He promised he would be back some day to learn this way of farming and plant a small wheat garden back home.
Sven Celerys journey days were over. He has countless stories of the people and sites he saw. The House of Darrowmere was the only other respectable house in his eyes. Now he want to grow this new kind of plant, wheat, and brew potions to stop hunger, and help the sick. It is in Sir Celery's blood to be a person of aid to the weak. He is now 53 and balding and all he wants is a better cleaner world.

★ Character Name :
 Gamyr Torvar

★ Which house do you serve? :
 Winterbane

★ Provide a detailed and well thought out biography for your Character - include your characters history, age, characteristics, appearance and any other relevant information :


Gamyr grew up in the wild forests. His father hunted whilst his mother stayed home and cooked. Gamyr had little contact with the outside world, he learned to hunt from his father using a handmade longbow inscribed with their family crest. For the first 7 years of Gamyr’s life he hunted alongside his father, watching and learning how to use a bow. By the age of 9 Gamyr was already hunting small deer, rabbits, and other small rodents. His mother was a talented cook when it came to soup and stew. They ate in quiet peace at their home in the woods. At the age of 11 Gamyr’s father succumb to a very bad cold. He was forced to stay in bed for 6 months before finally passing on. Gamyr’s mother, filled with grief for her lost husband quickly fell into a great depression that threatened to kill her. Gamyr hunted what wild game he could find and he tried to keep his mother sane. At the age of 14, Gamyr was holding his mother, trying to calm her down after another crying fit when she started to choke violently. His mother died that moment, choked to death by the very tears of which she was mourning the loss of her husband. Now, with little money and food Gamyr was forced to venture from his secluded forest into the world of which he has never seen. The nearest town of Belmark was a quiet town, one that he could make a start in any form he could. He ended up hunting game for a friendly merchant who seemed quite interested in Gamyr. It was not until later that he heard of the great city of Valguard. Gamyr made it his goal to make it to that city, and hopefully make a living any way he could. While working for the merchant he was told stories of distant lands, and savage creatures. When he was 17 years old he has finally made enough money to buy a ticket on a boat to Valguard. The boatride there was horrendous. Rats and lice crowded the boat, and there was little to no food to eat. When they finally docked into the port of Valguard, the sight Gamyr saw amazed him. A very large city that extended farther than he could see, along with thousands of people busling up and down the streets. The first thought going through his head was “work”, so he set off to find a small job. He checked thousands of stores and business’s and it seemed none could use him, so when he was resting in the back of an inn he saw a small flyer on the ground. It read “Join the Valguard army! Help secure the city from the evils of the night!” He knew this was his only chance at work. Prior to seeing this flyer Gamyr had stared drinking heavily, it turned him into a violent man. He would get angry easily, he would rage unpredictably. This made his time in the army difficult. When he joined he was sent to the barracks with all the other new recruits. He found he had nothing to connect to with the recruits so he made little friends among them. After finally finishing training he was introduced to the weapons he would be using. He was given a rusted shortsword and a terrbile bow. He discarded the bow immediately and pulled out his bow given to him by his father. He found using a sword awkward and barbaric, he preferred the deadliness of a bow. Out on the training course he showed what he could truly do with a bow in hand, he it every target right in the bullseye. After training he was put onto the town guard and he had the night shift. Everynight from Dusk to dawn he would patrol the streets of Valguard. One evening he had been drinking before he went onto patrol, he came across a young couple that were scuffling over trivial matters. With being drunk already he lost his temper at the young civilians and accidently injured one of them. After his senior in command heard about, this he was immediately discharged from the military, his sword, armor and only source of shelter and food taken away from him. Having no work he went to one of the inns in a lonely part of town, he had a quick conversation with the innkeeper and they decided he could stay there until his situation turned around. Now Gamyr is 27 years old and he has nothing except his bow, his skills and his mead.

I would coolly sit down and shrug him off. If he proceeded to assault me I would push him back, I'm confident I could take him in a bar fight.

★ A ship is bound to take you to your home county. You are told by the ships captain that the journey may take several weeks. What items do you take and why? :


I would take spare food, a bow, some arrows and an axe. My character being a lone hunter knows the value of food, and a good weapon.

★ Rumours sweep your home town of bandits and thieves en route causing carnage on their way. What actions do you take? :

I would grab my bow, arrows and bulky hide armour, I would then proceed to intercept the bandits, keeping an eye on them but not getting their attention. Once they begin to raid I will do what my character does best, pick them off one by one.

His mother died that moment, choked to death by the very tears of which she was mourning the loss of her husband. Now, with little money and food Gamyr was forced to venture from his secluded forest into the world of which he has never seen. The nearest town of Belmark was a quiet town, one that he could make a start in any form he could. He ended up hunting game for a friendly merchant who seemed quite interested in Gamyr. It was not until later that he heard of the great city of Valguard. Gamyr made it his goal to make it to that city, and hopefully make a living any way he could. While working for the merchant he was told stories of distant lands, and savage creatures. When he was 17 years old he has finally made enough money to buy a ticket on a boat to Valguard. The boatride there was horrendous. Rats and lice crowded the boat, and there was little to no food to eat. When they finally docked into the port of Valguard, the sight Gamyr saw amazed him. A very large city that extended farther than he could see, along with thousands of people busling up and down the streets. The first thought going through his head was “work”, so he set off to find a small job. He checked thousands of stores and business’s and it seemed none could use him, so when he was resting in the back of an inn he saw a small flyer on the ground. It read “Join the Valguard army! Help secure the city from the evils of the night!” He knew this was his only chance at work. Prior to seeing this flyer Gamyr had stared drinking heavily, it turned him into a violent man. He would get angry easily, he would rage unpredictably. This made his time in the army difficult. When he joined he was sent to the barracks with all the other new recruits. He found he had nothing to connect to with the recruits so he made little friends among them. After finally finishing training he was introduced to the weapons he would be using. He was given a rusted shortsword and a terrbile bow. He discarded the bow immediately and pulled out his bow given to him by his father. He found using a sword awkward and barbaric, he preferred the deadliness of a bow. Out on the training course he showed what he could truly do with a bow in hand, he it every target right in the bullseye. After training he was put onto the town guard and he had the night shift. Everynight from Dusk to dawn he would patrol the streets of Valguard. One evening he had been drinking before he went onto patrol, he came across a young couple that were scuffling over trivial matters. With being drunk already he lost his temper at the young civilians and accidently injured one of them. After his senior in command heard about, this he was immediately discharged from the military, his sword, armor and only source of shelter and food taken away from him. Having no work he went to one of the inns in a lonely part of town, he had a quick conversation with the innkeeper and they decided he could stay there until his situation turned around. Now Gamyr is 27 years old and he has nothing except his bow, his skills and his mead.

I would coolly sit down and shrug him off. If he proceeded to assault me I would push him back, I'm confident I could take him in a bar fight.

★ A ship is bound to take you to your home county. You are told by the ships captain that the journey may take several weeks. What items do you take and why? :


I would take spare food, a bow, some arrows and an axe. My character being a lone hunter knows the value of food, and a good weapon.

★ Rumours sweep your home town of bandits and thieves en route causing carnage on their way. What actions do you take? :

I would grab my bow, arrows and bulky hide armour, I would then proceed to intercept the bandits, keeping an eye on them but not getting their attention. Once they begin to raid I will do what my character does best, pick them off one by one.
