    Since Avren is in Idle Champions now, I think it is a matter of time until we see the rest of this crew in Idle Champions, huh?
    I look forward to seeing another half-orc besides Krond make it to the game. Orkira seems she could be a fun character too.

        I've been loving these heroes' adventures. But I do have a request to the cast and all my other fellow D&D players. As a person of Irish heritage who speaks a smattering of Irish Gaelic, it really grates on my ears to hear people pronounce the name Oghma as "ogma" and the word "ogham" as "og-ham" or "oggem." They should be "Ohma" and "ohm," respectively.

        In most dialects of Irish Gaelic, the "gh" sound is either silent or mushed into a vowel or diphthong when appearing in the middle of a word. "H" is not a letter in Irish Gaelic, it is an operation. When paired with another consonant, it indicates the pronunciation the other consonant should be given. So, when paired with m or b, for instance, the mh or bh sound is most commonly "w" when in the middle of a word (so Samhain is pronounced "saw wen" rather than "sam hane," for instance), while having a soft "u" sound when at the end of a word (see my parting sentence below). If paired with g, the gh is pronounced like y when at the beginning of a word, and most often is silent when in the middle, as in the English words "light" or "fight." This is especially true in formal Modern Irish, which has standardized pronunciations in an effort to preserve the language.

        So, it's "Ohma" for Oghma, and "ohm" or "oh-em" for ogham.

        Go raibh maith agat! <---- That's irish for "thank you." You say it "go ruh muh a-gut."

          But oghma has a g sound in its pronunciation. It always has. You can look it up on the forgotten realms wiki where it says how to pronounce it, with citations.

        The anthropologist wizard is my favourite character concept, I'd already played a character who was a wizard second and an architect first, becoming an adventurer to study ancient ruins, the building techniques and sacred geometry of past cultures, with formidable arcane knowledge being a happy side effect.

              Love the idea of an anthropologist! I've always wanted to play one so it'd be interesting to see how the character works.

                  Briv best boi. Penelope best gurl.

                  Also TJ Storm usually has some really interesting characters so Keen seems like he'll be a lot of fun.
