That's fine. You've got something like 60lbs of weight which would be a medium load for you (carrying capacity). Medium load means your movement in combat is now 20ft per turn instead of 30ft, of course, when combat starts you can just drop your backpack.

Next is spells. You need to choose which spells you have prepared (read up on Druid spells, you can pick any). Remember you can change what spells you have prepared every day, so you don't need to worry about what you prepare now too much.

You'll also need to choose your characters alignment in order to restrict your spells.

Nice. Next you need to make your animal companion.

I'll create the animal for you. You just need to choose the animal:
  • badger
  • camel
  • dire rat
  • dog
  • riding dog
  • eagle
  • hawk
  • horse (light or heavy)
  • owl
  • pony
  • snake (Small or Medium viper)
  • wolf
Then you can choose one extra "trick" that your companion knows:
  • Attack
  • Come
  • Defend
  • Down
  • Fetch
  • Guard
  • Heel
  • Perform
  • Seek
  • Stay
  • Track
  • Work


If you can come up with a similar sort of animal to the above, or a new "trick" that's along the lines of the above, then just say so.

Okay. Now you need some backstory. Where does your druid come from, what motivates them etc.

Her parents having disappeared not long after she was born, Celaena was was raised by her aunt and uncle, a pair wealthy merchants who treated her like their own. As a child, Celaena had always been closer to nature than her peers, preferring the company of animals then playing with other kids. She was often found skipping chores to play in the nearby forest.

Even as she got older she never really fit in, her trips to the forest became an escape, she could either be found in the forest feeding small animals, or in her room with her head in a book, the world in the pages fascinating her way more the the world around her. So not long after her birthday, she left, wanting the type of adventures she'd read in her books


It that ok? And can my animal companion level up with my character?

This is fine. Take a look at the world map (linked to in a sticky thread somewhere in the forum) and give me a location you're from; or, if you prefer, you can be from the west of the map.

And yes, your animal companion levels up. I'll put all your stuff together a little later tonight.
