Everyone with an application in has until the posted deadline. If we start getting many more apps then I may cut off new submissions earlier. That's a warning to any lurkers waiting for the last minute!

Character Basics
Name: Vinicius "Vee" Ovidius
Race: Chelaxian (Human)
Alignment: Neutral Good
Class: Ranger (Trapper Archetype)
Traits: You were born and raised in the town of Trunau, one of the few human settlements in the orc dominated Hold of Belkzen. Orc attacks are an ever-present threat, and like all Trunauans, you have made the Standing Vow: to hold Trunau against all attackers, orc or otherwise, to stand your ground, and to live free or die trying. Upon coming of age, you were given a hopeknife—a small, sheathed dagger, usually worn on a chain under your clothes—and taught how to use it to take your own life to avoid capture by orcs, or to grant the mercy of a quick death to the wounded. As a native, you have served in Trunau’s militia, and fought alongside Patrol Captains Kurst and Rodrik Grath. You begin play with a hopeknife (a masterwork dagger), and your tenacity in the face of adversity grants you a +1 trait bonus on Will saves.Trunau Native / You have a tendency for rash behavior, often disregarding your own safety as you move across the battlefield. You gain a +1 bonus on Acrobatics checks, and Acrobatics is always a class skill for you.Reckless

Description:
Vee has many of the qualities of his Chelaxian heritage such as being pale skinned with only a bit of weathering from exposure to the harsh winds that sweep the Mindspin Mountains, thick black hair that is swept back away from his face in with a well trimmed short beard of the same coloring. Evenly spaced dark brown eyes watch calmly the world about them as they sit over a strong nose with the remaining facial features being lean and tight. Roughly six feet in height, give or take a couple of inches, with broader than average shoulders that taper down to a narrow waist with his arms and legs showing wiry muscle from long hours of exercise and effort.

Physical characteristics aside his clothing is sturdy and functional with extra stitching and support in the important areas, with colors that favoring greys and browns, and commonly accompanied by a heavy fur lined hooded cloak. A sturdy looking handaxe hangs conveniently on his belt but all know he favors his handcrafted longbow when he goes on patrol that has been artistically decorated through the use of wood burning giving it a distinctive appearance. Even when unarmored he typically has a thick leather bracer upon his left armor, though if you ever looked close enough under it you would find enough faded scars to suggest why he has it.

More important than his general appearance and dress is the way in which he carries himself, he has the confidence of youth which gives him the bold stride that is not swagger but more a sense of pride in his service, being light on his feet more than one Truauan has seen him cross the busy commons weaving easily through the crowd without missing a beat. Not surprisingly his smooth baritone voice follows his stride, deep and assured but one of his few aspects that isn't reckless and instead takes on a steady cadence neither rushed nor drawn out but is useful and easy to follow when he is speaking. He frequently uses his hands to gesture as he is talking to help make his points and indicate direction or whom he is referring to which helps those trying to interpret his intentions from a distance.

And Valerius has been updated, with your feedback in mind, Jarl. Thanks again for that.

KIDDING!Nope, too late, OneDarkness. Table's updated. That's 30 apps.

Anyone else looking to put in an application - that has not already done so - has until the end of day on Monday, 13 July to put something down. Deadline for final submission remains unchanged for 17 July. I'm not a hard-a#@ for deadlines so it's flexible until I get up the next day and check the boards. So likely around 9 am EST the next day.

Want to give anyone working on an application a chance to still submit but there are a crap load of apps and ALL of them are looking good. So this will hopefully cut off those last minute-quick-draft-how-much-time-do-I-have things on the last day before I get to spend all weekend flipping coins to see who gets in! Have gotten messages from a couple people that were interested but have decided they will not be applying.

Again, let me know if there are any specific questions!

Jarl/Team,

My updates to Makkari have been completed based on feedback... just props again for taking on such an undertaking, but given your choice of role models it is not surprising that you brought so much pain on yourself!

Onward!

Cheers, Xian

I just realized that Samiale has two Social Traits, I've made the necessary changes. Mr. Dalin is complete and ready for review at your convenience.

Application is updated, mostly in terms of writing. Not a real re-write, just additions. A re-write may be in the books, possibly.

Completely reworked my app HERE. It still feels terrible, so if anyone (other than the overworked Jarl11) would give me criticism, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Many thanks!

Modified Anders' app slightly.

@Jarl, the Youtube link should work again now! The more I listen to it, the more I am certain this is the perfect piece for the shy halfling warpriest.

My app is complete.

I didn't come up with anything yet in terms of how or why Kyra is halfway across the world from her home, but I have a jump-off, and (a) I think it's not necessarily super impacting in terms of placing her in the story (and in fact, I think sometimes these vast character histories can do more to box a character in than lend to good roleplay. That might just be making an excuse, though. ha!! (b) I'd definitely be open to pairing up with a character to help place her there and create a pre-existing bond of some kind--which of course would only be if I am selected.

So... for now, I'm done, ready for critique, criticism, berating, etc.

Aye aye, mes amies!

Will try to get a couple more reviews done tonight. Tomorrow no reviews will be completed as we'll be out of the hotel and into a house with no internet for about a day. Won't be doing those from my phone. Rest of the week will be busy unpacking and sorting. Will try to knock out a couple a day but no guarantees after tonight. Sorry folks!

Congratulations on the new house! Unpacking was always my least favorite part of moving, so hopefully it goes well for you.

Name: Sittania Weatherflower
Race: Halfling
Alignment: Lawful Good
Class: Rogue
Traits: Armor Expert (Combat), Adopted-Elf: Warrior of Old (Social), Vexing Defender (Campaign)
Drawback: Family Ties. Both her sister and the community of elves that raised her are extremely important to Sittania. She would seek to do almost anything they asked of her and would be distraught if she were not able to.
