I am about to launch, along with 25 others, into a West Marches campaign as both a player and as a DM. I am looking forward to doing both and can't wait.
Here is a quick sketch I made with a few notes about Hoxus my Half -Orc barbarian with a yen to learn the flute.
No she isn't an orphan and her parents were reasonably bright and affluent, but it just so happened that Hoxus did not inherit any of her parents natural abilities. She does have plenty of her own though. More when I have her figure all sorted out.
