I'll be accepting 6 characters, one per person (not including myself). Events will be randomized by a grid I've laid out and dice.
Eastern Occupation (what your job was when you were back East):
Skills acquired over lifetime (such things as fishing, marksmanship, dueling, hunting, anything pertaining to a skill that's been learn and might be handy in this setting):
Short Bio (10 lines or less, just explain what state your character came from, if they have any family [and if they came on the Trail with them], why they went on the Trail [remembering this is also a couple years after gold was found in California, so your character may be interested in that], if they've had any notable experiences like being stranded in the mountains, etc):
Equipment (Weapons, valuable furs, leather, etc):
The story post will be the next one, when I flesh out a few details.

Name: Jimmy East
Eastern Occupation: Carpenter
Skills: mastery of carpentry/woodworking, average hunting ability, expert marksman
"I've been in the carpenter business ever since the town carpenter took me under his wing after my parents died. I was really young at the time but he turned into the good man I am today. I learned how fend for myself. I had a ton of free time so I learned several useful skills when I had nothing else to do. It may not have been the best life but it made me stronger in mind, body, and soul. After my apprenticeship was complete, I became the the new town carpenter and my master retired. At first I thought I'd stay avoid the hustle and bustle of the gold rush but I've been feeling like I'm in a rut lately. I hoping to live a new meaningful life in Oregon. I'm hoping to catch one of the last wagon trains going there." Let's say my character lives in Ohio.
knapsack (or whatever they used to carry stuff), reliable multipurpose knife (for hunting, woodworking etc...), a few basic woodworking tools, the average pistol and rifle they carried backed then, ammo, custom carved wooden staff, hatchet, canteen, hammer
Note: I might edit this but this Is pretty much it
