Looking good so far. Just a few details need to be sorted out before we can get started.

Arnost needs something filled in under faith. Usually I wouldn't make a player have to fill out a faith, but it looks like this campaign is going to pretty religious as that's the nature of the Hussite wars and several PCs have religious or faith based drives and traits. If you think Arnost isn't particularly religious, you can just put something like "non-practicing Catholic".

What are your thoughts on the "impressive singing voice" trait? I'm just a little worried it would function a lot like +1 Singing Skill and not really do anything else. Maybe tweak it to something like "Booming voice" which you could use while singing to a crowd, or use in other situations?

Can you give a few sentences of physical description of Arnost? And a character portrait if you like.

Can you fill out a bit about the Battle of X? Feel free to make things up, inventing people or places. I'd like most PCs to have atleast 1 contact as well, and introducing a contact as someone you know from the Battle of X would be a good way to do. A contact should have a name, a few sentences on Arnost's relationship with them and optionally a description or portrait.
