This is probably a Halfling (furry bare feet) and it might even be a bard, but it has the look I'm sort of imagining. I may change it later.

Name: Barlamox Settspelunker
Race/Gender: Gnome Male
Class: Monk
Background: Artisan
Appearance: Barlamox is 3'5" and 40 lbs, fairly average for his race. His eyes twinkle like green tourmalines and he has dirty blond hair cut fairly short.

Personality: He is fairly quiet, and seems serious, but once he gets to know people, his gnomish good humor comes out. He loves to talk about gems and jewelry and is quick to tell you about his craftsmanship.

Alignment: Lawful Good

Bonds: He wants revenge, well, okay, justice, against the criminals that destroyed his business and killed his father.
Ideals: Community. A strong community is good for all people.
Flaws: Jealous of anyone who outshines me at gemcrafting.

Maybe something slightly more comprehensive, like;
Ninniachon
Ninniachon was only 35, still young by the standards of his people, his build still one full of vitality and his face was often dirtied, sometimes decorated. The same could be said of his hair, however rarely would his clothing be considered anything but practical/filthy.
His ways were honest and forthright, attuned to the ways of nature yet far from masterfull of them. It was a meeting of both circles, of land and moon not far from his home that had decided that it had been too long since Phandelver had been without supervision. Too long had these circles been stretched beyond their means to accommodate the breaking of that vales own circle.
They had not the resources or time to establish a new circle or or wardens, yet Ninniachon was marked for a place upon his own circle in good time, for now it would prove useful to himself and this council of circles to have him survey the situation.

It was fortuitous for Ninniachon to encounter a caravan upon the long journey, the weather had been unforgiving. Still many days from Phandelver they were suffering and offered a short contract to him to join them for the remainder, which offered him the opportunity to learn more of what awaited him there. So readily he accepted.

Basics
Name: Ret Marrow
Race/Gender: Human / Male
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Class: Bard
Background: Soldier




Details
Appearance: Ret is a stocky 5'8, and has been unshaven these last few weeks. Dark brown hair is cut to a medium length ~ enough to be vaguely dashing, but not get in the way. Soft brown eyes and expressive lips often crinkle and twitch in amusement, respectively - the face of a man who has a fairly funny story to share, and would love for you to hear it some time.

Battered but serviceable leathers and the well kept scabbard hanging off his waist give the impression of a mercenary or caravan guard: someone who fights for a living and doesn't mind it much at all.

Backstory: With a minor knack for magic and undeniable ability to inspire his men (even the occasional malingerer who hung 'round armed outfits like whores off a pontiff) life was looking good for Seargant Marrow ~ more than decent coin, a remarkably senior position for the tender age of 27 - dead man's boots notwithstanding - and even a 'bonus' for the successful conclusion of that last little trade war! Signing on with Capstan's Free Foot was proving to be a brilliant career move: until the old man kicked the bucket, anyway ~ the physicians had said it was a combination of stress and unhealthy diet. Ret wasn't convinced, though - the man had been an ox, even if he had a fondness for full cooked breakfasts and deserved reputation for a rough temper!

Then that thrice-damned heap of dragondung Halfstromdt had taken over - and, well, they'd never got along to say the least. It was either out of the company, or out front in a position which didn't quite get reinforced in time: operational realities they'd say, rather than 'cleaning house'.

So here he was, a friggin' caravan guard of all things - how the lads would've laughed! But coin was coin, and his friends in the guild had put in a good word for him as someone who could handle a sword and keep hold of his tongue. Word on the grapevine was these dwarfs were involved in something magical, and that meant danger pay, didn't it?

Personality: A rough and expansive good humor hides a more thoughtful and calculating side: he's gonna go places, even if he doesn't know quite where yet ~ no need to trample over anyone to get going though: it's best for others to have your back, rather than plant something there, after all.

His own minor magics, whilst never formally trained, have been good to him, and left Ret pining for more knowledge on their nature and use: he's never going to be a wizard, but it's always best to have an edge, isn't it?

Being born the son of a city guardsmen and weaver and growing up just this side of middle class has left Ret with an enduring dislike or at least distaste for nobility: having had to quite literally fight for his successful niche in life has left the man wary of those 'who had it handed to them'.

That said though, life in a big city left it's cosmopolitan mark: live and let live, and if you don't, you won't live.

Personality: I'm full of inspiring and cautionary tales from my military experience relevant to almost every combat situation.
Bonds: Someone saved my life on the battlefield. To this day, I'll never leave a friend behind.
Ideals: Ideals aren't worth killing over, or going to war for.
Flaws: My hatred of my enemies is blind and unreasoning.

REMINDER
All I ask :-)To do list:
  • Think of a Race and a Class, and give him/her a name
  • Search and google for the perfect image of your character, and add it to your application (please use this to resize your image to a reasonable format)
  • Meet me in Phandalin
    The characters are in the city of Neverwinterwhen their dwarf patron and friend, Gundrun Rockseeker,
    hires them to escort a wagon to Phandalin.
    Gundrun has gone ahead with a warrior, Sildar Hallwinter,
    to attend to business in the town while the characters follow with the supplies.
    The characters will be paid 10GP each by the owner of Barthen's Provisions in Phandalin
    when they deliver the wagon safely to that trading post.

    Just get into some roleplaying here, and tell me how did you character meet Gundrun Rockseeker,
    and why did he sign a contract to deliver goods from Neverwinter to Phandalin?
    What have you heard, what do you you know???

    Don't go overboard, keep it within one or two paragraphs,
    and to keep your post tidy, use the 'spoiler tags'

  • at this point no character sheet is needed, you can try and add one if you want
    but I will check it when the Game is up and running :-)


Impressed by the applications, but I still want to emphasize on the fact I am DM-ing this Starters Set for the newbs at the Crossing.
So please do not go overboard with your application, and re-read the things I asked to be in an application.

If you want to make the most awesome application evurrr, this is not the game for you .

Oh what better way to continue learning the ropes here than with the starter set!

Application
Introduction
right-aligned image
Stop lookin' at me, will ya? Geez! No, I swear, I was just looking. No, promise! Hey—don't just snatch it from my hand. I don't care that it's yours, have a little respect for a young lady. Yes I said lady. Am so! Okay well maybe not, like, a proper lady, more like a lass, but even then... Look, you could have better manners, is all I'm saying.

It's pretty though. And I like how it feels. It feels... old. My father had a timepiece just like it. That's why I wanted to look at yours. Oh? He's around. Yeah, my family's... What do you care, anyway? You give all your potential customers the third degree?

'Course I'm from here! I just keep to myself, s'all. Ask Bob, he'll tell you. You know Bob? You don't know Bob?! Everybody knows Bob! Who are you, don't know Bob?!

Yeah well—I'll just take my money elsewhere if that's how you're gonna be!

BuildName: Lyssa
Race: Human
Class: Rogue
Gender: Female
Alignment: Neutral Good

Description and BackgroundLyssa—she won't tell you her last name—is a scrappy waif of a girl, barely tall enough to sit a barstool without a bit of exertion, but that doesn't stop her. In fact, oftener than not she'll use her diminutive stature to her advantage. Apt to climb a tree or squeeze between the banisters rather than fight or be caught, Lyssa's a slippery one—and she likes it that way. She gets antsy, itchy, staying in one place for too long, and provided she's stuck put she'll start expending all that extra energy through a tirade of expletives that would make a pirate captain blush. Lyssa knows one thing, and one thing only: survival. She couldn't tell you what she lives for or how, but by Conn she'll do it.

On Gundrun Rockseeker, the contract, and Lyssa's knack for lyingLyssa had been fed up with the city of Neverwinter thrice over when she heard through the grapevine that her old friend Gundrun Rockseeker was seeking, not rocks, but guards for a wagon escort. Well, she'd call him friend, but he might have a different, more pejorative word for their relationship. He'd saved her from being arrested for petty theft one cold night, she couldn't thank him enough, and he still hasn't heard the last of it. But now this, perhaps this was her chance to leave the city behind for once and for all, and the thought of it filled Gundrun with a certain hope of relief. Despite her being a wafer-thin rogue, he hired Lyssa on with the idea she'd does that thing she does in a fight which is to fight dirty, tooth and nail, if they came upon any trouble. She assumed the job was just the latest of Gundrun's clever schemes, but if it meant work and a ticket out town then so much the better for her.

Almost off to bed, but first edited the application table in the original post,
and I am impressed by the amount of interest.
When I was having doubts about the interest to fill one group,
I am now considering mutiple groups and doing the math with my available time and energy

Goodnight all....

I'm new to 5e, I do have the starter's set and I've played some of it as DM. I'm confident in my ability to not-metagame and will definitely not reveal where the +5 vorpal greatsword is spoil any of the surprises if I get the chance to play. I just really want to try the protective style out

First draft below and still a WIP (hunting a suitable pic for one!). I'm very raw when it comes to DnD's setting and so not been able to tie it to the world as much as I'd like but working on it! All feedback welcome, especially as know it still needs a bit of work.

So much interest! Thanks for doing this for us newbies, choc! Almost done with Tower, so it'll be nice to try a game with more than just me and the DM.

If it isn't too late and you're not too overloaded with players, I just wanted to express my interest as well. I am a newcomer to 5e and I haven't played the Starter set before. I'll have my application done by sometime tomorrow morning. I pretty much have the answers to your questions already in mind but I just need to find a good picture.
