This thread is for new players to post and get introduced to the DnD Campaign without being haphazardly dumped into the laps of their comrades. It's also meant to gear players towards the most seamless integration into the party as possible. With that being said, our first contender is Eva(Theguy)!
Traveling the world, honing her skills, and taking on common adventurer tasks, Eva soon graduated from being a green adventurer. She met her fair share of odd creatures and bandits, nothing of legend or too much note, and allowed herself to become adept at doing more than the common guard. Though she was far from a knight yet. She went from town to town, acting on her whim, performing quests for coin and doing what she willed, until the very day her destiny revealed itself... In a quiet nameless town some miles away from the Capital city of the human kingdom...
She'd awake from her room at the local Inn to the sound of screaming and fire. Even after generations, human memory didn't fade. The most common scream outside was a deathly fearful outcry; "Chaos! It's Chaos! The dragon has revived!" cried a woman's voice. Soon, the building she was in was met with flames as red reptilian creatures spewed fire from their mouths, the flames appeared cursed, as if not just fire, but gifted with unholy magic. This left Eva with but one option, to leave quickly before she died inside. Either through the window for speed or down the stairs to avoid getting hurt, Eva emerged into the sight of a whole village in flames, under enemy attack. There, a familiar face made itself known to her. Among her many quests she was sent to deal with a band of gnolls causing havok, and she defeated their leader with a strike to the eye, presumably killing him. Somehow still alive, it's left eye was pure white in contrast to the blue eye that remained. Before she had time to react, he crossed swords with her and let out a howl. "ELF THING!" it cried, suddenly able to speak common.
It's maw near her face, he snarled at her amidst the chaos, guards overwhelmed, and not long after women in the streets being violated. He barred his teeth. "You got lucky, taking me eye, but the dragon gave me a second chance. Now, I'll 'ave YOUR ASS on a platter as I serve you to my god!" it howled before shoving her back such that they now stood at combat with one another. "Get her, boys!" it called out, as two lesser gnolls joined the fight!
The town seemed to be in a state of a losing battle. The guard stood no chance against overwhelming numbers. If Eva did not get past the gnoll quickly, she'd be caught in the tide and become among the first victims of Chaos.
