Welcome Kingowlbear! Looking forward to having you in the game. I too was new to play-by-post when I joined this campaign earlier this year and am thoroughly enjoying it. Hope to have the party run into your character some time soon!
Kingowlbear, I too was a [New person] to play by post, when I joined. That was just before Anronrosby, so not so long ago *smile* Welcome to the fun!
It has been great having you in our game. Thank you for letting us know about your upcoming schedule. You will soon be very busy!
Your writing is very good. You have nothing to worry about in that regard. As to finding your character's voice… I have the same problem at first with characters in play by post. You will discover it more as you go. No matter how detailed a background I have for a character it doesn't really come alive until I've played the character for a while. As your character interacts with others and deals with the challenges of the adventurers life it will all come together. Enjoy the experience!

Hi Kingowlbear. Congrats on being a father very soon!
I've very much enjoyed having you in Daishain's game thus far. (Not sure if you joined any other games.) I agree 100% with everything Ky said. I too usually find my character more through interactions during the campaign than in my pre-written description and backstory. I think you've been great anyhow, but I'm sure you'll figure Nikolaos out even more to your satisfaction very soon. I'm still figuring Velon out and he's been around for much of 2017! In the meantime you won't hear me complaining about bonus HP, lots of heals, and lots of help to the party in general!
To be more specific, I like that Nikolaos isn't shy at all, shares his ideas, and cracks the occasional good or bad pun. (Bad puns perhaps being more amusing than the former!) I think our party, in character even, is pretty open to newcomers and all are treated equally after a very brief 'getting to know you' period. All the more reason for him to be open and be himself. Occasionally the notion of 'those who have been with us the longest' comes up, as it would if the characters were real, but otherwise we try to be very inclusive. Keep the heals and humor coming, please! ;).
