From your descriptions, above, I'm assuming that Tirandir the Elf is starting out as a fighter, while Firas the Elf is starting out as a magic-user?
Correct on my part... Tirandir will start as a Fighter, I hope to flex some magic-user muscle eventually but not now. Hopefully there will be a nice in-game point to make a shift. No idea what I should do about the Spellbook but perhaps that will be the in-game cause/effect.

Dubeers has already explained, but I'd also add that "man-type" is the terminology that preceded "demi-human" and "humanoid", so we use it in DD for a little bit of authenticity, if you want to call it that.

Ta Im thinking elf with those rolls. Must re view char gen section edit> doh was going to go backwards with rolls so str 14, int 15 etc...thought it looked to good to be true...still thinking elf mind as I dont feel we need yet another cleric. I wouldnt mind being a cleric however ps if i go elf i assume i could start as a fighter to get hp(hd1+2) then sneakily become a mu to get spells and scrolls?? or do i need to be mu for scroll and spells then switch to F? the joy of minmaxing old skool style For spells im torn - comprehend languages may be needed for an int 9 elf. Sleep is a solid choice and read magic i assume needed for spell book understanding. I think i spotted good ol magic missle so a ranged attack may be a good choice....dear o dear i remember why i always played a thief now

you dont get as charming as me without feeding them up first you know...i guess i need to type it up and do some fluff then
edit> done, an eye for the ladies and a tendency to favor knives marks this elf as always able to find trouble. You find food can go a long way with mortals whom seem obsessed with the stuff- all good elves like berries and wine (made from berries) ps what monsters?
Malaveque is an outcast Elf, in part due to his brooding and sarcastic nature and also his deformed appearance, the result of an ambitious alchemy experiment gone wrong as an adolescent. His skin is marred by acid burns from the right half of his face across his chest and down his right arm. His right hand is functional, but badly scarred, leaving him somewhat weak. He has lost his hair on the right side where only scars remain, while on the left it grows unkempt due to inattention. Driven out by his own people, he has sought various employment in order to fund continued magical studies. He has been with the mercenary band for about a year, and has been considering leaving as the rewards have been lacking.
[Edited: PS. Assumed rope was sold by the foot and weight works proportionally.
If this is good, I'll repost to the active character thread.]
[Edited again. Does the referee wish to roll for the starting hit points?]
