Uh oh... I think you may have me confused with somebody else, I've never been an RPGX member prior to this account and I've never left yet. Unless you mean the amount of time I took between posting interest to posting an actual application, but I don't think that is what you meant.

Okey, I admit, it is 12.16 over here so slightly passed the 'Goodmorning'-conditions ;-)Goodmorning,

@Cloverlord, I might have mistaken you for RomanAegis, who was offline for a while, apologies

* worked on the Game Threads
* PM-ed RomanAegis and Souleaterx if they are still interested
* using old fashioned pen and paper to decide on groups...

Question: for the people with some 5E knowledge and a >500 post count:
- please let me know how attached you are to your application character, and eager to play the one summitted.
Is there room to change race/class if it would suit the 5E newbz?
No problem if you want to roleplay the character in this application thread, this is just a pre-game inventarisation

I'm flexible - just let me know, and I can whip up another character for you in a needed race/class.

I am vaguely familiar with 5e but if you need me to change up, that isn't a problem.

I can play anything you need me to. I would prefer to not be stuck with a Gnome Barbarian with low STR, DEX, CON and high mental stats, but whatever you need! (Granted, if it fits I would prefer to play the character I applied with)

There actually is some validity to a gnome barbarian, you know magic resistances and all. Sorry my nerd is showing.

Oh I agree, but not one with 8 STR, DEX and CON. Unless you want to multi-class later, but even then...

Sorry for the delay! Here goes:

Application
left-aligned image
"Dunbar Icehowl "
Race: Dwarf
Class: Barbarian

Background:
Who am I you ask? My name is Dunbar Icehowl, I was born as the son of Gondar and Arga Icehowl leaders of the Icehowl tribe. Our tribe had lived for centuries in the caves of the Sword Mountains where we had good and happy lives. Sure, we might not have had the luxury and civilization of town folk but life was good on "our" mountain. The game and fish were plentiful, the water from the mountain creeks was clear as crystal and more delicious then any I've tasted since and the comradely and friendship of the tribe kept us happy and strong. Unfortunately this life would not continue forever as something evil was stirring in the mountains. One day the tribe got attacked by giants descending from the high peaks, scattering the tribe and leaving many tribesmen dead. Thankfully my mother and I could escape unharmed but I've not seen my father since then. After the disaster me and my mother traveled to Neverwinter far away from the lurking danger in the south.

I've lived in the city ever since. In the beginning it was very difficult to make enough money for both me and my mother but over the years I've made quite a name for myself as a bodyguard and strong arm. I've lived here for 6 years now and finally felt like I had left my past behind. I guess I was mistaken, when Gundar Rockseeker came to the inn where I am a regular asking for able bodied men and women to protect a caravan heading to Phandalin I didn't think for one second and jumped on the opportunity to go. Phandalin is very close to the Sword Mountains you see, maybe I could find some of my lost tribesman there or, if the gods are good, I could even find out what happened to my father.

Very much a newbie to PbP and recent graduate of the new player solo game (thanks Bhelogan!). Getting this application in before the deadline, with little time to spare:

Fun facts

Let's see

* There are 26 applications so far; and the diversity is amazing!
A conclusion could be that The Wizards of the Coast did an impressive job to make every class have it's awesomeness
  • 2 Barbarians
  • 2 Bards
  • 2 Clerics
  • 2 Druids
  • 3 Fighters
  • 2 Monks
  • 2 Paladins
  • 3 Rangers
  • 3 Rogues
  • 2 Sorcerers
  • 1 Wizard (awwww)
  • 2 Warlocks

* The races chosen have less variety; human is far most popular (is this race so cool or is it the most 'safe' to play in a 'new' system?).
What I thought was odd, there is nobody putting a half orc nor tiefling in. Are they the 5E outcast?
  • 4 Half-Elves
  • 5 Dwarven
  • 2 Elven (one Wood, one High)
  • 12 Human
  • 1 Dragonborn
  • 1 Gnome
  • 1 Drow

The genders, well, as expected and common within D&D tabletop there are:
  • 6 female characters
  • 20 male characters

Now the small not interesting facts which say absolutely nothing and even beyond nothing
Averages in RPXP and post count, (for the nitwits/nerds, I calculated the post counts from yesterday evening)

RPXP 673
Post count 652

Making all of this I learned a whole new side of Gundren one never reads in DM manuals,
  • he had one adviser
  • he met one new employee at a drinking contest
  • he saved one new employee
  • helped a Druid to find his circle by giving him this job
  • helped out finding another one his lost respect and honor
  • 4 people were simply looking for work
  • 4 new employees were apparently his friends all along
  • one is family
  • two were his old childhood friends, and they grew up together
  • one new employee saved him from a fire (he completely blocked that traumatic event apparently)
  • seriously: 5 new employees knew his Father, good friendships there and he never knew
  • besides the drinking battle he met another one in (the same?) bar
  • saved the last one from his Temple

Last but not least; how does the DM see you

The Rangers and the Rogues
The Melee Powerrrr (minus 1)
The Magic people and the missing Figther ;-)
The Medical Rescue Team
the Hippies

Updates have me giggling like a schoolgirl Choco ~ nice work!

My general guess would be that people have never liked Half-Orcs (I blame Tolkien!) and Tieflings are perceived as being a bit 'cliche', I guess ~ tormented son/daughter/spawn struggling against/embracing inner demons and the like: everyone loves John Constantine, but it's hard to pull off a good British accent in PbP!

The variety of class applications does surprise me!

On a final note, I'm glad to see my character is doodled as the sort of man you might buy an especially cheap couch off, or who turns up to your party uninvited, acoustic guitar in hand.
