I want in. As a 90 year old grampa. >.>
Ha ha nope.
Name: Victor Ravenheart Age: 24 Sex: Male Race: Human
Appearance: Victor stands above average human. Being dressed in plate armor gives him rather impressive outlook, even if he's armor is very tarnished and there are several leather straps holding together loose plates. Victor tends to wear his helmet everywhere, even in searing heat. He has gray eyes and his medium length hair are black as the night itself. His eyes have fiery gaze, the very same gaze that most warriors share. He speaks in rather low toned and silent voice, but it appears to be mostly commanding in it's tone. Longsword he wields has emblem on it's hilt - a black raven. Victor's shield has many sword marks and appears to be used in many battles. He generally appears to be shady and thoughtful in his appearance. An uninviting aura surrounds him.
Personality: Victor is rather silent, but when needed, he can be very manipulative. He uses coercion to achieve what he wants from the weaker and charm to plead himself to the mighty. He has short temper, and he has gotten in many troubles because of it. He dislikes knight and paladin personality types, as he believes that weak are there to be exploited and he also believes that weak allow themselves to be exploited. His work as mercenary has given him rather professional attitude when dealing with adventures and singing contracts - highest bidder wins. Sometimes he is called blackheart by fellow mercenaries because of his cruelty. He was born in noble house, and thus, believes himself to be noble in exile. Victor rarely trusts anyone and has barely any friends. Victor considers friends to be persons who share very similar attitudes and ways to operate as he does.
Magic/Abilities: Victor is skilled bladesman. He can use both one handed longsword and two handed greatsword and he likes using bastard sword too. As much as he is skilled with blade, he is also skilled with shield and knows how to put it too good use and he has some experience with heavy armor. Victor has very little knowledge of magic - he sometimes casts a fireball in a combat, but it only happens if Victor is very immersed in combat and his adrenaline is rushing high. Otherwise he hasn't practiced magic and believes that this spontaneous use is useful when it happens, but he could go off without it.
Weakness(es): Victor is only skilled with blades. That means he doesn't know how to fight with axes, spears and other weapons that warriors use. He is very limited to blades. His short temper can sabotage any manipulation attempt of his. Having friends in dangerous world is very good, but he rarely had any and doesn't have plans to get some allies.
Background/History: Victor was born at Castle Ravenrock, a castle located in thick forest clad mountainous region. House Ravenheart has always been known as a famous house, both known for it's riches and it's success in wars. They were also known for cruel acts and tendency to repeat them. His father was current leader of House Ravenheart and his mother was from another noble house that was perishing by the time of Victor's birth. House Ravenheart had many problems themselves. First of all, they had lost some of their villages and their castle estate was threatened by wild clans of orcs who roamed the dense forests. They were also losing a political fight as local overlord had refused to receive loan from Ravenheart's in exchange of favorable terms for them. Instead he had favored an local Baron who had recently usurped his title. In these turbulent times Victor's family had decided not grant Victor education in city because they feared that he could be kidnapped, and being only child to his father, he was rightful heir to his house.
As Victor grew older his noble snoobish attitude became more and more visible. He harassed many of castle's servants and would often play cruel pranks on some of father's advisors. His father didn't have time care anyway and Victor's mother had recently passed away. House Ravenheart was going deeper and deeper in debt. They were threatened by all sides and it was very evident amongst the house. Many fled to northern estates, while some sailed seas to establish themselves in exotic lands. When Victor reached his 15th birthday, he had already been well tutored in the ways of warrior. His bladesmaster was the one of the rare persons that Victor held as friend. He would often share hunts with his bladesmaster.
House Ravenheart could no longer sustain itself at the Castle Ravenrock. Debt was ever larger and a newly self proclaimed king had decided to add Ravenrock to his kingdom. This king had hired the local orcs to storm the castle and they were given siege equipment. Castle was captured in a short night. Victor and his trusted bladesmaster had managed to escape the castle using an old sewer that lead them to a small river. Blademaster warned that his house will be persecuted and he also told that they will flee to south.
Victor was 20 years old. He made his living by working as a sellsword. He was sometimes contracted by a local noble, sometimes by a warlord. Usually mocked for his title, he grew grim attitude. In his dreams, he wished that he could restore his houses honor, but he had no means. Firm belief was the only thing that kept his dream alive. Years passed and on motives only known to Victor himself, he had traveled to Bitewind.
Additional/Miscellaneous: Victor will probably betray you at some point in this RP ( if he gets accepted ) .
I decided to post CS earlier. If there's something wrong with my CS I will gladly fix my flaws.

I've spent so long trying desperately to learn how to love. I gaze into her eyes, she's beautiful, my love.
But there is something within me, which forces me to look away, and when I do, I see darkness. I see filth, and depravity, and greed.
I see not the world with all of it's shine, and lost is the love I found in her eyes.
All that remains is hate.
Cool, we definitely have enough people. I'll make an OOC in a couple of minutes, since I'm home from school. Character sheets should obviously be posted there. I'll generally be pretty accepting, as this is the first RP I've made on this forum, so don't be disheartened if I act annoyingly meticulous and point some stuff out.
It's good, but I mean, one man being able to succeed against the entire party alone is, you know, unlikely! Of course, I don't mind such things, it adds flavor. Just a warning. (:
The deed is done.
Man, there's actually (surprisingly) a lot of people.
