Title: Cailean - Brief Bio & Stats
Post by: Kismet on March 31, 2004, 09:17:27 PM
Name: Cailean Fa'lasan
Race: Half-elf
Kit: Archer
Alignment: CG
Racial Enemy: Shadow
Proficiencies: Long Bow 4*; Axe 1*; Short Sword 1*??? -- 2 weapon prof. 2*(automatically)
Str: 15 need strength to even pull a long bow
Dex: 17 spent several years rangering plus spent past year ducking BHs.
Con: 16 A healthy guy!
Int: 10 Avg. Int. not stupid; not brilliant
Wis: 14 Has learned a bit in the school of hard knocks lately
Cha: 13 A likable/personable guy
Tot: 85

Equipment:
Generic Studded Leather Armor
Generic short sword? Axe? (depends on what proficiencies we give him)
Cailean's Bow (+1 longbow), 40 fire arrows, 80 arrows +1
Cailean's Amulet - Given to him by his mother, it casts Selne's Mooncloak while equipped. This creates an aura of moonlight around the wearer who gains a +1 to saving throws versus spells and effects dealing with shadows and darkness.

Personality:
A natural risk-taker with a good heart and a strong sense of loyalty towards family and friends, Cailean also had an unfortunate tendency towards impulsiveness coupled with a weakness for the occasional practical joke. After months on the run, however, he had become somewhat withdrawn and wary of others, a little fearful of letting himself be manipulated and taken advantage of again.

Romance Details:
Cailean will romance females of any race and any class except Bounty Hunters. Charisma, intelligence and wisdom must be at least 7.

The romance is broken into two distinct parts. The dividing line between the two parts is the completion of his quest. In the first part of the romance, the PC will have to make all the moves and initiate all conversation. PC init LTs will begin shortly after picking up Cailean. The PC init LTs will have the option ability of the PC init flirts. The PC would have a menu of conversation choices like so:

1.Ask Cailean about Masalina.
2.Ask Cailean about growing up near Riatavin.
3.Ask Cailean about being a Ranger.
4.Ask Cailean about his parents.

So if you pick "Ask Cailean about his parents" you and he have a short chat about them...maybe learn their names and what they do. The next time you talk to him you'll get something like:

1.Ask Cailean about Masalina
2.Ask Cailean about growing up near Riatavin
3.Ask Cailean about being a Ranger
4.So, how did a Priestess of Selne from <wherever> and an elvish fighter from <someplace else> end up meeting and falling in love?


Non-romance details:
Non-romance would run a similar course where the PC would have to initiate conversations before the completion of Cailean's quest and Cailean would initiate conversations after.

Brief Bio:
Cailean had a relatively carefree childhood, the only child of a human mother and elven father. Approaching adulthood, he was allowed to go adventuring with his Aunt Leandra, a veteran ranger in order to hone his skills as an archer. After his Aunt decided to retire, Cailean returned home to his village to ponder his future and became infatuated with a childhood companion,Masalina, who had matured into a beautiful young woman who was not above using her feminine wiles to get whatever she wanted. Cailean turned a blind eye to the unsavory rumors that swirled around her and attributed the talk to jealousy and sour grapes. Eventually, however, he began to feel uneasy with some of the things Masalina persuaded him to do, the least of which was stroll through the streets fully armed (she was very jumpy, always claiming there was someone in the shadows). In due course, events conspired against Cailean and he was forced to flee for his life, having been set up by Masalina for a crime he didn't commit: she had unflinchingly used him to further her own nefarious schemes.

Cailean made his way to his Aunt Leandra, taking to the forest and avoiding the main roads when he could help it. Sometimes when hiding, he is able to overhear travelers excitedly relish the latest gossip Masalina had been spreading about him. Cailean felt sick as he listened to the tales that seemingly grew more fantastic every day. His Aunt agreed to send a note to an old friend in Athkatla; he had a number of contacts that may be able help Cailean in clearing his name. As for Masalina herself, she was making her way to Athkatla as well under the guise of an innocent starting her life anew; nothing could have been further from the truth and she began to surround herself with thugs who would do her bidding. Cailean watched from a distance as she became more hungry for money and for power; she began to chafe at the role of an innocent betrayed and wanted some credit for the deals she arranged.

Okay, so I've been thinking about breaking out the entire Baldur's Gate game, all three, and installing them to play again. Except I know I shouldn't since I'm pretty busy.
The fact that I have a lot of stuff to download and try is not helping me. The fact that Cailean may be coming out soon is just the devil on my shoulder.
Bah! Discipline is over-rated. I can't wait to see this.

Yup, he is very pro-animal.  I think he might have a few banters/interjections that mention different animals, in fact.   :)

If you start in Baldur's Gate you are told that your character is 20.

Is Cailean a Breast Man, a Leg Man, or a wacky, wacky Ass Man?

Please to be keeping abreast of the situation:  Is Cailean a wacky, wacky ass man?  Two reasons the signs point to no! (http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php?topic=17910.0)    :-*

What exactly is PPG's official stance on puns, again?  My vote goes for BANEing.  Of the forevar variety.

So, so awful...

So are you saying it should be pun -ishable by BANEing?   :P

/me saves vs. death.
Ha, you'll have to try harder next time.

On a random note, will Cailean travel back in time to join the BG1(Tutu) Bhaalspawn's party?  I hear there's a sucking void in the universe where mods for Tutu should be.

I suppose he really wouldn't have to time travel if we just gave him amnesia.  A conk on the head and he's good to go!  Just think of the banters he could have with Minsc!
