Premise for Longtooth Cat players

  • The character is a member of a stone age hunter gathering tribe. In the prime of his life. Unlike the other dog using tribes of the area, the Long tooth clan are an ancient Hsunchen people, who came from the far away, who have lost their link to their ancestor spirit... Long toothed cat. Sakkar in ancient peloria?
  • Myths say that during the darkness a daughter of Fralar, king of the carnivores,was seduced by Foundchild, their child was Long tooth cat. Later Hearth mother welcomed her as a daughter and was she was much loved by her Father.
  • Brother Dog became jealous and with tricksters aid, they turned Votank against his half sister. Long tooth cat was killed (at the top of what is now called Griffin mountain, but as Lion's Barrow to the cat people) and her children scattered. Since that time the Long tooth cat people have lost both their cat companions and their associated cat powers. A Tribe of wandering people, that has dwindled to one small clan....
  • You could believe you are a cat who has been trapped in human form or a human who has lost their cat powers. All members of the clan have vague catlike attributes, cat like eyes, or elongated ears, hairier than normal perhaps, some are lazy or others sexual predators. But they look 99% human.
  • Lion's Barrow/Griffin mountain is a holy site and no one is allowed to climb it.

Hunting grounds

  • Far to the North, way away from other human Votanki clans.They are nomadic, but during the winter seasons they shelter in their holy site amongst the bones of a long dead dinosaur, centered around the mystical Longtooth cat stone. Myths and cave paintings tell that it once carried a village on its back, filled with dragon creatures. But out of the South came a man of the sun, on the back of hawks, who killed them all, freeing the stone and the people from their slavery.
  • The land: Tall grasses, clumps of trees, river, hills and mountains to the East, full of Trolls. A lone mountain to the south with gryphons. Bison, deer, dinosaurs that local myths tie in with the giant skeleton that the clan lives under, aldyami (elves) in the big forests, Pentan horse nomads to the North. Dog Votanki to the South , where there are rumours of three giant built citadels.
  • The clan follows the way of Found child the hunting god, and pray to their ancestors. Long tooth cat sometimes answers, but is unable to bestow any powers until the cats are brought back.....
  • Lion's Barrow/Griffin mountain is a holy place, site of the Long tooth ancestor's death at the hands of Brother dog and her half brother Votank.
    • New blood is always welcome to the tribe. Their are several members of the tribe, who as children were snatched from elsewhere, or prisoners offered their freedom if they joined and made a family.

characters of the Darkstar company

  • Rothar Foe-Smiter, son of Garr, is a young warrior from the Three Marks clan of the Bison people. He left home to fight the Lunar invaders, but was forced to lay low in Sartar. The villagers of Apple Lane offered him a haven, and when they asked him to help retrieve what had been stolen by trolls, he agreed. In accomplishing this task, he met stalwart companions and joined a group of newtlings. In the course of helping return the newtling ancestor King Eft, he helped to slay a first age lizard, and made strong allies for the future. He heroquested as Waha, and helped to defeat the servants of Chaos. His new-found confidence shines through. His skin was toughened by the blood of the lizard, and he has gained an uncanny awareness of the presence of certain lizards. The newtlings tattooed a warmth matrix upon him. From King Eft's treasures Rothar was given a bracelet that will allow waterbreathing. Through his heroquest, Waha has granted him repeated access to Makalla, a spirit of Law. The death of one of the villagers has left Rothar in possession of the “Tin Cow Bell” which contains the spirit Buttercup. From one of the defeated trolls he has gained a Shimmer matrix. And finally, he has agreed to continue the pursuit of Whiteye, the troll leader of the bandits. Altogether, things are looking up for the man from Prax.

  • Proxenus. A middle class farmer from Sun Dome country, a conservative patch of ossified culture in which Proxenus is a misfit, he is a tall, lean hoplite of traditional appearance apart from a set of very unconventional trousers. He seems to have a problem with tradition, authority, restrictions and generalists. Rather than outward defiance, he prefers to slide off through unexpected avenues of approach and suddenly appear, having achieved his goals and showing you the paperwork you signed for. This is not an endearing trait, and his perpetual smirk does not help matters. As a result he is often sent on any and all sorts of tasks away from those in charge, a situation that suits everyone. Proxenus, with his aversion to doing anything simple, tends to blunder into complex situations beyond his comprehension and competence. The Adventure of The Rainbow Mounds is a good example, where a simple bounty turned into a series of mythic heroquest encounters, a forming of friendships with a variety of trollkin and his ejection via dragonewt plinth into the far distance. As he was already overdue, this not making matters any better.Proxenus has managed, in defiance to all probability and good taste, to accomplish the harder version of the Hill of Gold Heroquest (entirely due to doughty companions). As such his yellow accoutrements have turned red and he has access to fire powers. Go figure.His weapons are spear, sword and (shudder) mace. He's so for it when he gets home.
  • Dolwynn Flewynn - Hunter.A Tarsh Exile and former mercenary, Dolwynn Flynn passes himself off as an initiate of 'the Hunter' and is a paid up member of the Foresters guild. He is also secretly an initiate of Orlanth Adventurous [the Secret Wind, who are basically a bunch of bandit/outlaws in occupied Sartar], and is seeking a safe haven. He has relatives out West that he is generally attempting to find, though this isn't the first time he's got sidetracked...His formerly noble house has made a living as monster hunters for hire since their retreat to Sartar. He is pretty good at it, but talks up his past kills...a lot. He plays on the friendly relationship between the seven mothers and hunter gods to keep his head down and out of trouble. Dolwynn has a companion, Astis - an awakened and speech capable Alynx. They have been bonded since a hunters high holy ceremony two years ago - but they are not allied spirits in the normal sense. Rather it is a relationship - one both have been known to bemoan as a geas from the hunter god, despite their obvious affection for each other.Dolwynn was passing through Apple Lane when he was approached in his capacity as a monster hunter to retrieve their stolen goods from White eyes gang. Expecting yet another hyped up bushwacking with a bunch of rag tag swords for hire, he was unexpectedly thrown into deeper and deeper peril, starting with the befriending and championing of the newtling folk against an ancient enemy that tested his claims as a monster killer and culminating in representing Orlanth himself in a troll based heroquest.
  • Through it all, he was forced to consider and reconsider his actions, his directions and his responsibilities. For every gift he gained - blood drenched skin, the dance of the thunder lizard, surety and confidence in his own destiny, the bullroarer of his patron god, powers over and with the ice and cold of his lover and his somewhat daughter - he learned a lesson in his place in the world and how it was a right, not a privelige.
  • Now he has entered a dragon path to who knows where, his companion by his side and a new hearth - albeit of rainbow hued lynx kittens - for the hunter in him to protect. He has made friends that can only be made through the experiences they have shared and the bluster he once hid behind has faded away under a new surety - there are things they have to do, this group. There are no coincidences.
