Variel
right-aligned image
Name: Variel Culnamo
Race: High Elf
Class: Artificer
Background: Spy
 

OOC Info: Variel is indeed in training, but that training has as much (if not moreso) to do with espionage as with diplomacy. While it is true that he is on the farm for cultural immersion, it is also true that its position—not far from Neversummer but isolated enough to have fewer prying eyes—is conducive for discreetly moving information and resources between agents in the field.

Stats will be forthcoming once I have a chance to sit down and hash everything out. The plan is to have a lot of tool proficiencies for doing odd jobs around the farm; the specific tools might be tweaked depending on where other PCs focus, but it's likely that carpentry and woodworking will be included, if not smithing and masonry. Someone has to get the buildings into shape (and hide a few dead drops and safe rooms in the process), after all.

Application
right-aligned image

Name: Teela of the Thunderbird Clan
Race: Half-orc
Class: Barbarian (Storm Herald)
Background: Outlander
Sup Farm Girl,

The name is Teela Of The Thunderbird Clan, you probably don't know it since it's pretty far from whatever this place is called. As you may have noticed from my profile painting, (by the way not so bad, I would show you a bit more muscles but my painter friend was a bit too distracted on said muscles), I'm an orc. Well Half-orc, my mother was an elf, taught me some brains unlike the chumps of my tribe. Anyways, enough about my parents, I'd like to apply for the job. You see, I used to be my tribe's run of the mill huntress and I kind of got tired with the job. That, and add in the fact that while I was off mushroom hunting, I found myself in a mysterious cave which transported me to this strange place. But nevermind the small stuff, I want in because my mother always said I was meant for something more than a chieftains daughter. I wanna work hard, so I'll take the job as the farm's accountant.

For my work experiences, as said before I was my tribe's huntress. Add into the fact that I'm top of the class in my tribe's next generation, though it's mostly a muscle contest instead of an actual education system. Also, my tribe are called Thunderbirds mostly because they've been gifted by this magical bird made of storms with storm magic, meaning my clan can shoot lightning out of their chest. I can do that too once it comes naturally to me. But that's not why I'm here, I'm not here to return to my tribe as the most powerful warrior nor am I doing this for some vision quest, no, I'm here because I want to one day open up my own business. I heard in your application that there is enough property to make a restaurant, I wanna be the manager. But I can't do that without a little bit of internship and accounting skills, so if you don't mind I request the role of an accountant til I gain enough experience to be a manager.

So please give me at least the chance to try out, I can make a pretty mean coffee.

Edward Bluebell

Name: Edward Bluebell (Eddie)
Race: Human (V)
Class: Currently thinking Hexblade, Pact of the Tome, but I might switch subclasses depending on other applicants.Warlock
Background: Folk Hero
 


ApplicationDear Ms. Adelmi,

Hello! I hope this letter finds you well... I don't really know what that means, but Norwood said I should write it. My name is Edward Bluebell, and my big brother Norwood and I run Bluebell Farm. Well, sort of. We DID run it before it got blown up by some adventuring types. My brother says we got "caught in the middle of a dern guild war". Not really sure exactly what that means, but we've always had trouble with adventurers coming on our land looking to fight the orcs in the woods nearby. I don't really know why. The orcs don't really bother anybody. Heck, sometimes we trade them vegetables for animal furs and other stuff. Norwood says its because people don't like things that are different from them, which I think is weird because different types of people can be so interesting!

Anyway.

The reason I'm writing this is because I heard talk of you trying to get your farm started up, and I think I could help! I know a thing or two about working land, planting, and harvesting crops. Really though, I think my biggest strength is handling animals. I've always been good with farm animals, and that was before I knew how to talk to them! Oh, I can talk to animals. I couldn't always. That's a whole other story. After our farm blew up, a stranger found me and my brother and agreed to teach us some interesting tricks in exchange for my brother running a few errands for her. Weird lady. Never could seem to get a good look at her face for some reason. But anyway, my brother agreed, and we made a "pact", so now we know some pretty neat magic tricks! I can see in the dark, make stuff fly, you name it!

My brother left me with some savings we had put aside, so I'm on my own right now while he's on the road working. What we both want more than anything is to save up enough to rebuild our farm. Norwood said it's too dangerous where he's headed for me to come along, which is dumb, but he wouldn't let me argue with him. I love my brother though, and I don't want him to have to do all the work, which is why I'm sending you this Ma'am. I need a job so I can save up some money. I don't want my brother to do it all himself, and if he won't let me help him, maybe you will? I promise I can pull my weight, and if you give me a chance, you won't be disappointed! Heck, I bet Grinki and I will be best pals before long.

Armor Class 13
Hit Points 10
Speed 30 ft.

STR 14 (+2), DEX 15 (+2), CON 14 (+2), INT 9 (-1), WIS 12 (+1), CHA 12 (+1)
--------------------
Saving Throws Dex +4, Int +1
Skills Athletics +4, Deception +3, Insight +3, Intimidation +5, Perception +3, Sleight of Hand +4, Stealth +4, and Thieves' Tools +6
Senses Darkvision
Languages Common and Orc
--------------------

Darkvision. Thanks to your orc blood, you have superior vision in dark and dim conditions. You can see in dim light within 60 feet of you as if it were bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light. You can't discern color in darkness, only shades of gray.

Relentless Endurance. When you are reduced to 0 hit points but not killed outright, you can drop to 1 hit point instead. You can't use this feature again until you finish a long rest.

Savage Attacks. When you score a critical hit with a melee weapon attack, you can roll one of the weapon's damage dice one additional time and add it to the extra damage of the critical hit.

Sneak Attack. Beginning at 1st level, you know how to strike subtly and exploit a foe's distraction. Once per turn, you can deal an extra 1d6 damage to one creature you hit with an attack if you have advantage on the attack roll. The attack must use a finesse or a ranged weapon.

You don't need advantage on the attack roll if another enemy of the target is within 5 feet of it, that enemy isn't incapacitated, and you don't have disadvantage on the attack roll.

Actions
--------------------

Shortsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target.
Hit: 1d6+4 piercing damage.

Shortbow.
Ranged Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 80/320 ft., one target.

Daggers x2. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target.

Hit: 1d4+4 piercing damage.

Crowbar. Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target.
Hit: 1d4+4 blungeoning damage.

Equipment. A ratty black backpack with hidden pockets. A bag of 1000 ball bearings. 10 feet of string. A bell. 5 candles. A crowbar. A second crowbar. A hammer. 10 pitons. A hooded lantern. 2 flasks of oil. A tinderbox. A waterskin with a hole at the bottom. 50 ft. of hempen rope. A set of playing cards. Definitely not burgler clothes. Totally real-and-not-forged holy symbol. Completely-genuine-and-no-don't-check-my-work Paladin paperwork. An overdue library copy of Humbleburg's Beginner Guide to Farming.
OOC NotesHometown: Toad Bottom, a den of scum and villainy! And also home to the Brew of the Gods Festival, where the tastiest ciders, beers, and ales are flaunted in all their foamy glory!
Romance: Krow is a firm believer in love, and ideally, wouldn't mind settling down with someone one day. He is nervous about his past, and how it could effect his future relationships, so he is working hard to try and better himself-- to be worthy of being loved. Although some days, he's not sure that he'll ever be.
  • Romance NPCS? Yes! I like romance and I like cheese, so I am down to write that mushy stuff if it feels right!
  • Romance PCs? Yes! I think collaborating with other writers about romance is super fun, but only if we both consent to the idea!
Phobia: D-d-dogs!
Morality: Krow wants to be good. He doesn't want to be a crook or revel in his misdeeds. He genuinely wants to change and be a better person- he's just incompetant at it! And more than likely, he'll need a lot of guidance from those around him before he shows real change.
Role Model: Tharja Heartsplitter. A half-orc paladin whose been his closest friend for the last three years. She's the reason he decided to give up a life of crime, and someone he deeply idolizes. They still keep in touch, writing back and forth as she continues on her pilgrimage across the lands.

A kindly worded letter
right-aligned image
A Letter Arrives

To Whom it may concern:
Imelda,

Hello, I am pleased to meet you. My name is Teequeg. In case that name seems odd to you, I am a Tortle of the local blue-lakes clan that has found himself in need of some work. I don't have a lot of farming experience, but as a ranger in her majesties military I was responsible for a lot of scouting and exploring regions for my platoon. I was hoping you were open to the idea of hiring a farmhand with some expertise in cart driving and irrigation? I am very experienced in working in water, you know. (The letter has a section that looks like someone wrote down a laugh, but then blotted out the words and then scraped the ink off the parchment)

To be honest with you, I'm a little tired of the military life. I've lost a lot of my unit to a Manticore attack, and the military is still busy trying to restructure the survivors into a coherent unit. I've been given an opportunity to take a medical discharge, which I intend on taking. I heard from a friend of a friend who heard about your job opportunity from a bard in a bar, so it seemed pretty reliable. If this is not the case and I sent this letter to a random stranger, please accept my apologies and disregard the above. Unless you've got a job that an old war turtle can handle for you in some kind of unrelated coincidence!

(There is an attached roughly painted portrait of Teequeg hobbling on a cane. On the back of the portrait is a quickly scribbled down note: "The army had this portrait taken for the local paper, I was able to get a copy. It's... while I was still recovering from my injuries.)

Name: Kurnus
Race: Minotaur
Class: Druid
Background: Hermit


The letter is written on a thick piece of paper. The variation in ink quality gives one the impression that the writer wrote it over an extended period of time.

To:
Imelda Adelmi
Lot 441, Birgglewook Lane
East of Neversummer City
The Unremembered Realm

Blessings of the fertile plains to you, Ms. Adelmi.

I am known as Kurnus, and I hail from the minotaur clans of the western expanse. I lived my life as an apprentice to the old mystic in my clan. We mystics typically lived lives apart from the rest of our people, and can be considered to be hermits of a sort, such is life I suppose.

I must say I am in particular a very level-headed individual who takes his time to think things through before acting. I must also insist that I am not lazy, or slow, no matter what people seem to say. I am merely taking appropriate time to consider things.

As for my reason for applying, I must admit that I am no longer… welcome, around in my clan. I feel like I should say that it is for no alarming, criminal, or wicked act, simply an… error, of sorts.
Besides, it can hardly be said to be my fault that we were moving our herds of cattle too close to a chimera den. Yes, I might have been… relaxing, at the time; but I was just trying to read the cloud patterns for rain. Again, completely understandable. But the result was the same, so I have decided I need a change of pace…

So I feel like I could use my special knowledge of nature and animal care to enhance your prospects. I am quite skilled in that regard, and learned more than I think my teacher thought I did. And of course I am a minotaur, and we are no slouches when it comes to physical labour if the need arises.

Application letter
The letter is written in small and scribbly writing. It seems hastily jotted down, as if in a hurry, containing several spelling errors and quite a few crossed through words.

Hi Imelda! Dear ms Adelmi,

Hello, I am Look no further! Your all-important jack of all trades employee is right here! Writing this letter to you. My name is Anthurium, or Anth please don't call me Ant, and I was raised on a farm, so I know what the goings-on are like and I also know that a versatile employee, like me, is absolutely necessary! I've also been to wizarding school, so I got a bit of a magical background too, even though I gor kic the better to help around on the farm. I can cook, clean, do the laundry, do some modest repairing, receive guests (I love people!), sell stuff to them, especially when they do serve tables, ride a cart, tend animals and I also know a thing or two about plant and trees! With my wings I can take care of a tree from top to bottom. And, even though I'm not too big, well, compared to other people, but for a fairy I'm actually above average! Anyway, I can still chop wood, haul rocks or work the soil like anyone. Wherever you'd want me, I'd be the beI'm pretty sure I can fulfill that role! Oh, and I can also create our very own custom glassware, should that be needed! When you realise how awe If you see how valuable my skills can be for your farm, please let me know and I'll be on my way as soon as possible.

Kind regards,

Anthurium the Amaz!


OOC
Anthurium the Chaotic Wild Magic Fairy

Flitting through life like only fairies can do, hopping from one thing to the next, Anthurium's magic is just as unstable as his attention span can be. But he is an open and sociable fellow and always means well. Not too bright though.

Doileag's letter
right-aligned image


Imelda Adelmi
Lot 441, Birgglewook Lane
East of Neversummer City
The Unremembered Realm


Hello Imelda,

I saw your advertisement for your farm. This is my application. My name is Doileag. I am told by my ex-wife this name is hard to pronounce. Though I would prefer Doileag, you may call me Do. I promise that this is the only thing in which you will find me hard-headed. Besides this topic, being my name, I am a hard worker and will do as asked.

As for what I am capable of. This must be the thing of most interest to you. I am very good at making mulch. I know where the best acorns are. You might wonder, why do I care where acorns are? I will tell you. Pigs like acorns. They are like candy to pigs. I assume you have some pigs. On your farm, that is.

Also, I will deal with things that are “unsavory” to you. My ex-wife told me that most people have no interest in dead things. She said interest in dead things is “weird.” Whether or not it is “weird” I could not say. But I do say that I will deal with these things if you do not wish to.

In spite of these attributes, you might say I do not want a stranger on my farm. That makes sense. I will explain to you who I am, and then I will not be a stranger to you. I am from the Wyrmwood. In the Wyrmwood there are many firbolgs. We had no specific name. I did many things there, like making some small magic and like finding acorns. This is how I met my ex-wife. I will not bore you with more details of love, but eventually my ex-wife did not love me anymore. Therefore I am looking for a job. Therefore I am writing you this letter.

In any case these are my qualifications (see above).

Doileag

I'll see to it that the workers are well feed and ready for the adventure at hand. My personality traits are, I let others know I expect them to work as hard as I do, and my opinion is relevant whether you like it or not. My ideal is my gift of cooking is for all to enjoy. My bond is I keep a bottle of my favorite spice and herbs on hand. My Flaw is I'd rather eat nothing, than something bland, stale, burnt, undercooked or otherwise beneath me. If you like what you see may my Mess kit and Utensils serve you and your workers. Maybe around the table I can share war stories.

Hello Dear Miss Lady Madam Imelda,


My name is Usu, of clan Si-Si, and I very much would like to apply for paid relocation and a position at your up-and-coming Fraillie Farm! I've been meaning to get away from the big city life for a while now, and reinstatement of your lovely-sounding patch of land with board and lodging sounds tantalizingly precious!

I am a very capable catfolk and have been dabbling in various mercantile ventures all my life, and everybody that I've ever worked with has told me that I am very great to work with! I think that I will be very helpful around your farm, and if you need a crafty catfolk with roguish good looks and lots of cheerful witticisms, I could fill your empty roles as a salesperson or even as middle-management with ease! What I'm really applying for though is that aside from your farm, your advert letter included mention of a small mine with uncontested ownership on your property!

My greatest passion since I've been a little kitten has always been gems, gleaming metals and all bold, decadent, shiny minerals! I've been apprenticing the last few years under the renowned jewels peddler Master Adrien, and if your mine needs a prospector or a catfolk with an eye for value, then I see a great possibility that I can be your lucky find that might get us through the winter by ever vigilantly unearthing the greatest treasures and putting them into the best possible light to sell them and make your farm lots of gold!! (if we need the gold and don't want to keep our finds as decoration)

I've decided that life in the city is just way too hectic, because if you always have to be about making more gold, there's never really enough time to look at what you already have and to really appreciate it. But as a peddler or worker, I just can't rest my paws! I want to do a job that I love, and I want to keep doing it! But I also want to have a place to go back to at the end of a work day and not feel like I've left any gold lying on the ground. That's why I think the country life would just be the best for me, and I would love for you to pretty please hire me! I already have a pickaxe and equipment for working with jewellery, so your return investment for financing my journey into the countryside will hopefully pay as soon as you let me into your mine and give me some time to drag all the riches topside! And if it's not that rich of a mine, I can still help you around the farm. Because I'm very capable anyways and I'm ready for the country life!!

Please hire me!
Usu (I'm really good at what I do!)

A Letter Arrives!

Imelda Adelmi
Lot 441, Birgglewook Lane
East of Neversummer City
The Unremembered Realm


Felicitations and the kindest of greetings from the House of Ch'tall! While you may have heard of my family, or myself in particular, it would be terribly impolite to leave such things to assumption, so allow me to more formally introduce myself - My name is Mirabelle Ch'tall, and it is a delight to make your acquaintance even through so impersonal a fashion as letters! I am writing to you in response to your request for aid with your agricultural property; first and foremost, my sincerest condolences on the passing of your grandfather - It can be a trying time to lose family, estranged or otherwise, and I do hope this letter finds you in good spirits in that regard. Secondly, the nature of this letter is to express interest in the managing of said property!

If you are familiar with my family's station in the Gilded City, you may wonder what a mousefolk aristocrat's interest might be regarding your inheritance, and considering some noble houses of the land you may even be leery to have caught any such attention - But, if you are familiar with my family's name, or indeed my own charitable proclivities, you are likely to know of our (and, namely, my) philanthropic nature: Rest assured, the interest is far from nefarious! My family's fortune was built upon geared constructions and mechanical wonders - From clock towers to pocket timepieces, wind-up toys to automaton steeds, even some of the intricacies of zeppelins and airships - and, as they say, necessity is the mother of invention: Without experiencing the toil and labor (to at least some degree) of agrarian life, how else can one craft those things that will make such a life less laborious and more fruitful, to benefit both the farmer and those he supplies? I cannot, of course, promise any miraculous device to be devised in short order, if at all, but I can certainly make the attempt (and I'm very certain that I can indeed build something of interest and relevance, hopefully without such undue cost in parts as to make it non-viable for your average farmer!)

Regarding my qualifications, I will freely admit that cultivation activities are not one I am exceptionally familiar with; however, I did graduate at the top of my class from the University of Terminus for Engineering, and spent the entirety of my life assisting my father in the craft. I do not doubt that some degree of maintenance is required for any machinery or implements needed for the smooth running of such a business, not to mention architectural designs for housing (or other) expansion - If you have a windmill, a waterwheel, or the like, or would desire such things (or even something more intricate!) for the property, designing and personally overseeing the construction of such would be proverbial child's play. As an aside, I will gladly attest to also being quite the socialite; I'd be remiss to suggest I have the political clout or societal sway to influence anyone or anything, but there is generally a very good chance that if I do not know someone, I know someone who does, and rest assured, dear, networking is very important in any expanding business!

It is important to note that while I would be bringing some valuable tools and personal accoutrements, should you so desire my aid, the financials and influence of my family would not be immediately available or applicable beyond what I myself might be able to provide; the Ch'talls pride themselves on self-sustainability in their personal ventures.

Should you desire to bring me aboard your venture, or wish to pose any questions before deciding, then do please send a return letter via my delivering courier and I shall come, or respond, immediately upon its recipience!

Warmest regards and looking forward to your reply,

Lady Mirabelle Ch'tall
