    Are we allowed a background or theme? I'm applying either way!

    Edit: Would take the Occupation-Hunter background and either the Outlaw or Animal Master theme.

    Logging my interest for the open spot. No familiarity with the story but I'll do a read through when I get home tonight.

    Interested.

    I'll form a character and post tonight. I'm in a Dark Heresy PbP only, a tabletop Pathfinder game (meets once a week), and have a metric ton of time to post and play in this.

    So interested. I've not played PBP before, got some very limited D&D experience as a player and a little more as a DM. Not playing any D&D at the moment, but I've also applied for Aegeri's game. Got nothing to do over summer, and then until summer 2012 I'll be doing some 9 to 5 with no extra responsibilities, so I don't see myself flaking ;)

    Gonna read up on this thread and the IC, then I'll roll a character application.

    Yours truly, Ace Jon.

    Did I link this Character correctly?

    I'm applying! That's Erevan the rogue, whom I believe is setup correctly as level and whatnot. Been dying to get into a game of some sort, (NO ONE in my town wants to play with me. :( ) with tons of time on the PC at work to play, so here's hoping. Not currently playing any other games, sadly.

    I'm in the trollhaunt pbp on these boards, but I've been wanting to use the shadow-worshipping desert nomad idea for a while.
    I'm on gmt if that's a problem, but otherwise I'm available for the 1/day minimum

    Also just realised no powers actually use charisma. Is there any need to put points into it, apart from skills? Otherwise I may just focus on con for durability's sake.

    Edit: switched from charisma to con. Makes sense that he wouldn't be much of a face

    I've been looking over the other submitted sheets and am very curious, I've seen people with "Bags of Holding" and another with 4 magic items total. I thought we only got 1 magic item?

    I'm also looking at doing a second submission, as per the original OP (I came up with another character idea I wouldn't mind playing and I think would fit into the group well). Is that ok or do you just want one at this point?

    1. You get 1 item for free. If you want to pay for more, that's your perogative.

    2. Preferably just one.

    Ok, that changes things. I'm going to fix some things up and look over stuff, that extra money I was unaware of changes how I do my character. I might end up doing a full overhaul now that I've got some more thought put into it (and a better understanding of the story thus far). If it's been to much trouble it's no big deal if you feel I'm "that guy".

    Something new that WotC has added that gives characters more options and more abilities. Probably more trouble to mess with since you don't know about them though.

    DMG states that starting gold is whatever the price of a magic item of level n-1 is, where n is the player level. So that sounds like 840gp (cost of a level 4 magic item), plus the one free 4,5, or 6 magic item.

    Sound good, Farangu?

    ...Oh, and logging interest :D

    Summary
    Saiya is a young hume female of noble lineage and blood, whose young life brims with passion for adventuring and romance. Her long hair falls like silken moonlight over her shoulders, framing the countenance of a pale, rosy cheeked and lavendar eyed young girl. Among polite company, she favors light blue or white silks, hemmed with lace elegant in its simplicity. However, her ardor or perhaps it is better said, obsession with swordplay leaves her with dresses ripped, torn, and in tatters. Despite years of scolding, warning, threatening, and other harsh words... Saiya has seldom missed an opportunity to cross swords with local armsmen, mercenaries passing through, and even the occasional weapon master, though any training she might have gleaned from them is overshadowed by her ineptitude on the battlefield. It's oft been said over a mug of ale that it's more dangerous to be standing next to Saiya's target rather than be the target.

    Her mother, Anathiel, worries about the growing darkness within her ever more reckless and curious daughter. Saiya was born during a new moon in the Shadowfell that forever tainted her child with the strength of shadows. The harrowing details of Saiya's birth have been withheld from her all her life. Saiya's eldest sister, Aria, and her parents keep the secret between them. All others that would have known perished keeping the Shadowlord of Darkening Hall from claiming Saiya as his own, giving her parents time to escape to the mortal realms and back to Dreeston.

    Apparently, it is that time again...

    A spot has opened up in our lineup! I need someone to fill it!

    What I'm looking for: Level 5 character. Currently we have a Hexblade, barbarian, fighter and wizard. Strong preference for a leader character, if you couldn't tell. 22 point buy, then level up to lvl 5. One magic item of lvl 6, 5 or 4 for free. Picture with your application. Familiarity with the story so far is a plus, but I will be willing to fill in the blanks.

    The current members will be voting on who to include in this campaign. I will only be recruiting for a couple of days, so do please hurry with the creation. The one thing I'm looking for above all else: Durability. Fourth replacement I've had to find in a year and a half. I want someone who will stick with this.

    And...go, I guess.

    Oh, hello there. Level 5 leader huh? I do believe I can whip one of those together! As for my stick-with-it-ness, everywhere I go here has MWR so I can keep up one post a day even in this hellhole of a warzone! Submission coming shortly.

    I made a character but before I post it and look like an idiot for being too literal, did you mean one magic item of level 6, 5, and 4, or one magic item and that one item can be of the level range 4-6?

    Possibly gimped character behind spoiler.
    I was going for a flavor more than stats
