Round 0 - Applications

Applications are now closed!


PrologueThe Nine had found a new champion in Tobias to fill their ranks. Now that they were at full strength, the world was supposed to go back to normal. Balance restored. But, it wasn't. Every step the Nine made to bring things into balance was countered by unknown forces working against them. As their strength grew, so did that of the opposition, seemingly by double. The troubles of the world seemed to be just too many for such a small group, powerful as they were, to control.

So, what does one do, when there is no help to be found? Take matters into their own hands! Adventuring Guilds sprung up like weeds dotting the land, taking in those who would stand up to face the problems of the day. For a small fee of course. Experienced and Novice adventurers alike joined their ranks, in order to band together and defeat the evils of the day.

You are one such an adventurer. A member of the Crossing Companions Adventuring Guild. You and your team of fellow adventurers work together to fulfill contracts, earn some coin, and do some good in the world. Each has their own unique set of skills they bring to the table, and together you are a formidable team. Today's news though seems a little different. While your Guild Head, Sir Ethan is busy interviewing new recruits in his hometown of Harthford, a large contract has been issued, requiring the participation of all available squads at the nearby city of Orchardbrick.



Application rules
  • This year we using Outplay 2021 The System
  • Applications will have two separate sections, each to be in their own fieldset. First is the Stat Block, which should be appended to all game posts in place of a character sheet. The second is the Character Write-up. The Stat Block will have a word limit of 500 words. The Character Write-up has a limit of 1000 This excludes any BBcode mark-up, but DOES include any and all visible text in the application for both sectionswords. The judges will be relying on this website to count your words, so it is recommended you do the same.

Stat Block
  • Character generation is described in the system rules in 4 steps. You may choose your Race and Character Number (CN), or roll for a random result. Random rolls will receive an extra point in the Judges Scorecards.
  • All Signature Moves (SM) and Known Spell(s) (KS) will be reviewed and must be approved by the GM and Judges. We will attempt to answer questions throughout Round 0. Anything not reviewed or corrected by the deadline will be addressed during Character Sheet Reviews and should be adjusted on July 3rd and 4th.



Character Write-up
  • A description of their physical appearance and personality
  • A backstory
  • Tell us why your character joined the Crossing Companions, and maybe list some of their achievements since joining their ranks

  • Images are not required but may be included. Please keep them to a reasonable size, if you include any. Musical selections will likely not be considered by the judges.
  • Your application should be anonymized. When you post your application, please put it under BOTH a spoiler tag AND a secret tag
     
  • Applications close on Friday June 25th at 6pm EST. You may freely edit your submission up to that due date. Any edits after that time will result in disqualification.

So far, I'm just making the random rolls to see what I might get. Gotta think on it after that.

With how the character is coming along, I guess I wouldn't want to miss playing with them.

As if I didn’t have enough characters already… Well, I’ve never done Outplay before, but pianoman90 invited me to try it out. So let’s roll some bones.
