Sorry to hear that life isn't being kind to you, Nomad.

Though a decision for this game will be made sooner rather than later, feel free to drop a note if things ease up after the holidays. I hope to be able to reach out to the listed players in the future, if I opt to run a second group.

Hello @Gaijin

I've been on hiatus from RPGx for over a year, and therefore all the games I was in seem to have fizzled out-- I wouldn't doubt my own part in that but IRL can be... Unforgiving.

At any rate, I'm looking to jump back in and your game looks fantastic. If nothing else it will let me stretch my character building muscles. I just wanted to let you know that I'm cooking something up, and that it'll like be coming in just under the wire. Anyway, thanks for all your hard work already!

Regards, Lazarus

Application
right-aligned image
Character Name: Rance Blonkriss
Class: I intend to reskin the barbarian features as vampiric ones, so rage will be bloodlust, etc.Barbarian (Path of the Beast)
Species: Human
Affliction: Vampyr
Background: Reskinned HermitApprentice Herbalist
Alignment: Lawful Good
Personality Traits:
  • Trait 1: I care deeply what people think of me and constantly worry that I may offend them.
  • Trait 2: I prefer a mossy bed and the open sky to all of the trappings of the city.
  • Ideal: Understanding. If we could just see things from other points of view, perhaps we could all get along.
  • Bond: I will find the star-shaped mushrooms and unravel their secrets.
  • Flaw 1: I thought I would be able to control the bloodlust, but I was wrong.
  • Flaw 2: My words doesn't mean what I wants them to mean.

Description: A tall and rangy young man with short sandy hair and a perpetual frown, Rance has not taken to the vampiric life easily. His normally placid and amiable nature is at odds with the predatory bloodlust which overtakes him all too regularly.

Backstory: Apprenticed to Master Herbalist Onwar Harcrush from a young age, Rance never spent a lot of time among city folk, instead ranging around seeking out ingredients and counting stars. All of that came to a screeching halt when the Monstrum Virus appeared, and suddenly the only safe place for good folks was behind stout city walls.

His master went to work immediately trying to find a cure for the plague, and was soon questioning every one of the steady stream of incoming refugees arriving in the city. He found that the ones who had survived on the road for the longest all came from the same direction, through the Marsh of Chelimber. After much painstaking research he found that all of them had encountered I realise that this is probably at odds with what you have planned, Gaijin, but for all Rance or I know this could be a complete dead-end. I'm not trying to usurp the adventure and am fine with it turning out to be nothing. :-)star-shaped mushrooms on their travels, and he theorised that they had somehow conferred a resistance to the plague on these lucky travellers. Since he had recently developed a canker and had very little time left, he embarked on a daring expedition to track down these mushrooms and return some samples to New Evereska where they could be safely studied. Unfortunately he never returned.

Rance was determined to carry on his master's work, but knew he could not go out as he was. He sought out a vampyr and convinced the monster to turn him, sure that he would through sheer grit repress the worst of the curse. Alas, as with so many young men, Rance may have overestimated his own strength. The hunger burns in his gut constantly, pushing the once gentle boy to do horrific things.

Welcome! Welcome!

Sneaking in under the wire! I'll get you both checked in.


Thanks, Azure Nokori!

So, this is my completed application (barring any comments, suggestions or necessary corrections from @Gaijin). I willfully admit that my character inspiration came from Mirasiah's wonderful application. Thanks for the consideration! ☄️
Application
right-aligned image

Character Name: Heilan "Hoof" Taursus
Class: Barbarian (Eventually Path of the Beast, TCE)
Species: Half-Elf
Affliction: Lycan (Bull)
Background: Criminal (Enforcer) (Permission to make skill proficiencies Athletics/Intimidation -- like soldier --instead of Deception/Stealth?)
Starting Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Physical Appearance: Just about the only things that give away Hoof's mixed heritage are his slightly pointed ears, and piercing green eyes. Other than that, he's almost completely human in nature. Large and muscular (even for a human) Hoof's 6'6", 240 pounds frame is massive for a Half-Elf. His imposing stature and his usually glowering demeanor make him incredibly difficult to miss in almost any setting.

@ProjectLazarus, Got you updated. Clever move to tie in with another character!

*buzzer beats*

Wooooo I couldn't resist!
right-aligned image

Character Name: Malaric Wunderfoot, "Mack"

Class: Rogue (Soulknife)
Species: Halfling
Affliction: Harrowed

Background: Urchin
Alignment: Chaotic Good

Personality Traits:
  • Trait 1: The best way to get me to do something is to tell me I can't do it.
  • Trait 2: People say I'm optimistic, but that's usually because I see life as one big joke.
  • Ideal: Adaptation. I sincerely believe that the virus mutating will be a good thing, one way or another.
  • Bond: Outcasts stick together. I owe my life to people who are like me, surviving in the gutters of civilized society.
  • Flaw: I feel little to no empathy to the sheltered cowards who hide from the plague, especially those in positions of power.

Description: All wrapped up in his dingy yellow rain jacket, Mack looks little more than a three-foot tall boy urchin with a warm, nonchalant grin on his inky face. The smile usually distracts from the sunken, sad eyes that glowed purple in the darkness. His skin is covered by blackened scars - signs of his terminal condition - but he had those disguised by covering them with tattoos of mythical creatures and various fascinating and fantastic flora. Mack has been known to be friendly, even motherly at times, to those afflicted by the Monstrum. On the other hand, others have observed and knew better than to comment on the hin's coldness and apathy towards the general populace, most notably figures of authority.

Thanks! I'm definitely a fan of making the most of as little as possible.

With 24 applicants, I've got my work cut out for me. There are so many people that I want to play with that I may have to start a second group once I've gotten the first group comfortably underway.
