Zevalyn Ives
Arrival of Amber the Valorous
Sun Feb 11, 2018 15:25

Zevalyn arrived in the library a bit early, intending to grab some books for her DADA supplemental reading to close that last little bit of gap between where she was and where she was supposed to be for her age group, but before she found the books, she found the D&D table. For a moment, she stood there abruptly uncertain about the wisdom of this, with her now being sixteen and the other two already at the table being kids who started Beginners after she had left it. But she had already told Gary she was in, so she approached, kibitzed about the table until she found the Fighter's character sheet, then sat down in front of it.

She pushed the provided bag of dice back towards Gary and dropped her much larger purple suede bag of dice in its place. "I've played before," she explained. "I'm a second generation geek." She made this statement of fact with a smile and a note of pride in her voice so they both knew she wasn't speaking ill of them for opting to play or gm. 'Geek,' in the Ives family, was a compliment.

She untied her dice bag and dumped it out over Amber's character sheet. Most of the dice in it were purple and black or a cool swirly and shimmery mixture of both colors. She separated them out by dice type, having about four of each of the lesser used four, eight, ten, and twelve siders, with six twenty siders in case they turned against her, and a few extra six siders just because they were the sneak attack damage dice from the previous character that she last played.

"Hi, I'm Amber," she told the second year who wasn't Gary, holding out a hand for shaking. "Amber the Valorous. I'm blonde," which was true for Zevalyn as well, "really tall," she glanced at the strength attribute on her sheet to double check a basic assumption, and continued, "and really muscular." Those later two descriptions were decidedly less true for Zevalyn herself. She checked another two parts of her sheet and finished, "I'm wearing chainmail and carrying a freaking huge greatsword."
