This sounds like a really cool campaign right off the bat, and it has a neat application process, too! I'm definitely going to submit something.

[FIELDSET="Application for Dvalin - Male Dwarf
[/FIELDSET]

[SPOILERBUTTON="Answer #1"] I think for a while then I look into Moradin's eyes
"In one life I was a warrior who was charged with the defence of a gate to the Hold. I was young and enamoured of a Dwarf Maid. One night she came to my post and we were talking and kissing. Orcs chose that night to attempt and assault on the gate and I was not at my post. They broke in and were on us before I could sound the alarm. I died well, killing 7 before I finally succumbed to my wounds but they broke into the Hold and 100's were killed. I failed my people and I failed myself. I have learned to stand to my post and ignore distractions. I have learned that my own needs are subservient to the needs of the Folk. It has brought me closer to my Gods."
[/SPOILERBUTTON]

Application for Lyssryn Heartseeker (Lyssryn is pronounced liss-rin, she often goes by Lyssa or Lyss)

Question #1:

My greatest regret is my early life being spent entirely beholden to tradition and the status quo. Had I been more open to change and new ideas, I would have become a far better person. Had I questioned why traditions existed, I may have been able to help prevent deaths or injuries brought on by outmoded ideals.

Question #2:

I will not point out the flaw, though I will ask if my opponent is sure they want that weapon. If they do not notice, then it is an advantage to me. After all, combat is not dictated by honor; it is dictated by who can use all the means at their disposal. Had this been a duel to yield rather than to the death, I would have told of the flaw due to a fair fight being expected.

Question #3:

I give a subtle recognition of my friend's knowledge before interjecting myself between both groups. I will lay aside my prejudices and mediate between the two groups as a voice of reason and an open mind, hoping it would stop the imminent bloodshed and allow both sides to voice their whole situation freely.

Question #4:

I would tell my brother that he must go home and continue forging arms and armor for money. I would stop by a temple to seek a priest or priestess who would be willing to help rehabilitate my brother from his addiction. Then, I would sell the amulet as material possessions are worth much less than the safety of family.

Question #5:

Distrust of outsiders is a double edged sword. This elf is obviously coming with important information. The vulnerability of my kingdom and the need to protect it from threats overrides my orders to refuse outsiders and the uselessness of the prohibitive law. I would make sure another guards the gate while I escort the elf to the king. Whatever punishment for breaking the law is acceptable, but I will not sit idle when I could prevent the destruction of my home.

Question #6:

I could do many things with the ore. As mentioned, my imagination is the limit. However, I wish to think on a large scale for this one. I would seek out the best minds of the land and gather them to study this ore to unlock what secrets we can about the multiverse, arcane energy, divine energy, and any other subject possible. I would make sure that there is ample representation of science, alchemy, arcana, and divine study to allow the best breadth of study. This course of action may even lead to a means to obtain more of the ore for more study and small scale production of necessary goods to help people survive and thrive.

Question #7:

Though vile power has its price, so too does exalted power. Where the power comes from is irrelevant. If it provides me what I need to accomplish my goals, fighting with vile or exalted power is simply another tool to be used. Should the entities be annoyed by my use of their power without heed to their distinct goals, then that is their problem, not mine.

Question #8:

I would quietly take it and then pull the merchant aside to a private area so as to avoid publicly embarrassing him. From there, I would inform him that the purse was dropped and that I would hold onto it temporarily. I would take him to my friend and set up a mediated discussion about the finances. If the purse was profit, then I would advise to use the profit to pay the debt. If some had to be portioned out for living expenses, though not luxuries, I would negotiate to allow a partial payment now and the rest to be paid on a consistent basis from the merchant's profits, as overseen by me. I would accept no excuses from the merchant and would apply pressure as necessary to both sides to force a resolution to the debt. Once a plan for payment is made, I would then make sure it happens, otherwise I would involve the proper authorities.

Question #9:

Well-worn Boots

Consider my interest cemented, and the questions being considered and answered henceforth!

Looking forward to seeing the results.

The secret Q&A thing means there's really no way to guess how your app stacks up to the competition.

That's only fair! As I work through the selection, I'll put up {secret} responses from Moradin to all applicants. A few of the applications, I couldn't quite tell what class people were going for. Some truly amazing answers in here as well, and I kind of feel guilty that I'm the only one who gets to enjoy them. After all is said and done, you are all welcome to remove the {secret} tags and make your application public for all the world to enjoy.
