I had to make an app, the premise was really unique and I was struggling for a day and a half trying to figure out the best concept for a character. I was stuck on an Achilles-type of guy for most of it, but went with my current guy instead.

For the gear, I wanted to ask, do we roll for our class's specific funds?

Your ranger concept turned out cool, so struggles aside - congrats on that!

I think it's PHB143... its variable so you'll need to roll. Don't forget you also get your class and background granted gear which you can sell back at 50% if you wish.

I hope that helps! - Savy

@Drachenspirit - Looks like your just about there so I went ahead and marked your application COMPLETED!

Feel free to continue to finish up the little details or make any changes you like all the way up to first selection day. Cesheria is looking GREAT.

Coming into Land and a Strong HoldBack story:
right-aligned image

Uncle Turrolf was an adventurer. He left the family seeking glory and honour but he always wrote home to his nieces and nephews. Every two months a letter would arrive with enough coin to send a return letter. All 9 nieces and nephews received letters but only those who replied got more in return. It was only Constance who continued penning letters over the last decade. She enjoyed the letters so much that they were what inspired her to do a little adventuring himself. For two years she wasn’t able to send letters, but he settled down in a temple to Chauntea and sent a letter away. Another 7 letters were sent until the final word was delivered by a human man in House Turrolf colours.
“Mistress Edgewater.” His face down cast, the man continued “It is with great sadness that I must inform you of your Uncle's passing.”
Constance nodded grimly but her manners were not forgotten. “Please come in, sit and tell me of my uncle.”
“I’m afraid we cannot. We must be off.”
“We?”
“Mistress Edgewater your uncle named you as his heir. I, like all those in house Turrolf will swear their loyalty to you as soon as you arrive.”
Constance took a step back. Her uncle had married, she knew he had inherited the lands of his father in law and that his first child was due any day. “The baby?”
“Healthy though his mother passed after the grueling birth. Your uncle named you heir of his lands and guardian over his son.”
Constance nearly fell over, she had thought she’d like to be a mother one day but she hadn’t found a man to love her and now she was skipping that part. “Aunty Constance.” She mumbled to herself. Regardless of the lands the boy needed family to raise him, to love him. She could do that for him at least. The rest would have to been addressed when she got there.

I'm new to pbp and I'm not super experienced with 5e. I mostly play Pathfinder, but this sounds really cool! This is my concept so far. I'm very open to any feedback

Zang
right-aligned image


Name: "Zang" Zangim Horzu Wrewin Mertix Waryur Orumorn
Race: Rock Gnome
Class: Ranger
Background: Soldier
Alignment: LG

How I acquired my stronghold:
The Silverhawk Corps isn't your regular rag-tag group of bloodthirsty, greedy mercenaries. We're professionals, and we follow a strict code of honor. We have guild halls all across the land. We're the ones you send for when the treasury vaults are emptied without a trace, or when your city is stuck under the heel of an unjust ruler. So, nobody was more surprised than me when I caught our local guild leader in the act. It seemed like a routine bust. We followed the leads to a barn on the outskirts of town. We approached the rotting building carefully. Once got close enough to hear the awful sounds pouring out, we were horrified. We gathered our wits as quick as we could and bashed the door in. I'll never forget the look on her face when she spun around to greet us. Her twisted grin, splattered with blood, reached from ear to ear. To this day, we don't know what drove her to that madness. I just hope I don't let my men down.

Banner/Sigil: A royal blue and black checkered background with a silver hawk in diving position in the middle
Words: For honor and valor

Application StatusComplete


Application
right-aligned image

Name: Ronin Buckman

Race: Half Elf
Class: Rogue, Inquisitive
Gender: Male
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Property Type: Noble Estate with Manor

Physical Description: If not for my well groomed facial hair, I could easily pass as a hearty wood elf. Although muscular, my 5'9" frame is not what any human would call "large." I also have long dark brown hair and hazel eyes.

My armor is typically some variation of leather, as I enjoy moving freely and quietly. For my clothing, I prefer shades of green and brown, as those are the colors of my house.

Background/History: My father was a powerful (Human) Knight with his own estate, in the forest south of The Sword Lands. He was awarded that title and property after leading several successful incursions as an officer in his Lord's Army. My father met my mother, a Wood Elf hunter, in the forest near our estate. By then, he was nearing 40 years of age. Although they were tecnically very close in age, my mother always seemed much younger than him.

My parents loved each other, and me, very much. However, they never hid the fact that none of us would ever be fully welcome among the Human or Elven community. Despite that, the Noble status of my Mother and I was never challenged (not openly anyway).

Things were wonderful for my first 20 years. I learned how to handle a sword and the basics of bureaucracy from my father. From my mother, I learned to appreciate nature, how to move silently, and how to properly use a bow. Finally, from watching them with each other, and in their dealings with others, I learned to be humble and to never judge another by their race alone.

Shortly after my twentieth name day, my father passed of natural causes. My mother was left in charge of the estate and I foolishly left her, to seek adventure and to make a name for myself. I hid my true identity and found work on a merchant fishing vessel, where I spent days (sometimes weeks) gone to sea. Instead of adventure, I got long days of back breaking labor. Still, it felt good to earn my wages and I learned a lot about surviving (Thieves' Cant, Sleight of Hand, Stealth, etc..)

About six months ago, a new guy joined our crew. He was a young, shifty looking human that looked like he had never spent a day on a ship. I could relate and even felt badly for him That was until he tried to pull a dagger on me for seemingly no reason. In the struggle, I managed to turn the dagger back on him. I didn't intend to kill him but the Captain and crew agreed that it was self defense.

After the attack, I was shaken up pretty badly. Despite having trained for combat, most of my life, this was different. As far as this man knew, I was nobody and nothing was to be gained by attacking me...When we returned to shore, I went straight to the tavern. I was shocked to see our estate's butler waiting for me at one of the tables. When I was sure that we would not be overheard, I smiled at him and shook his hand. I recall thinking how good it was to see a friendly face. I also recall the solemn expression on his face as he told me that my mother was very ill. The healers believed it to be some sort of poison but for reasons beyond their knowledge, they could do nothing to heal her.

Suddenly, the "random" attack on me made more sense. Someone knew exactly who and where I was. Whomever it was meant to destroy my family. What I could not (and have not) discovered was who or why. We rushed back to my family's estate, barely taking time to rest. I made it in time to spend one helpless week with her. Through tear filled eyes, I vowed to her that I would take care of the estate and that I would seek vengeance on those that brought this pain upon our family.

@Xalnaga - very nice start, and its awesome to have you here.

Quote:
Savoy, how much room do we have to play with NPCs and the like?
Well, within your domain (the area around your Keep) you have A LOT of liberty with your own followers and units (which you can write in whatever way makes story sense for you). A follower can be the traditional idea of people that 'work' for you in some capacity or you can write them up as important family members or friends. A follower will have the ability to impact the game in some important way and/or grant you abilities or traits you'll be able to use when they are around.

Units and your stronghold work in a similar way.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or if that did answer your OQ.

- Savoy

Lets put your previous home just south of "The Sword Lands". Laerakond is the name of the continent. The only thing south of it would be Evermeet and I'm not sure a human would be welcome there

Let me know if I can help in any way but you look like you have things very well under hand.

We need to get rid of that gold name of yours so head over to my roller room ( and roll about 5 times to get you post count up ) . Then we can start to send you Private messages if we need to.

This is the code you need [dice]6x4d6kh3[/dice] Also, [dice]rstat2[/dice] will accomplish the same thing. As always, ask any questions you have, especially the dumb ones.

A good way to 'see' what codes people are using when you see something you like, is to use the "quote" reply button at the bottom of the post. That will show you all be BB code that was used.

There are a lot of things you can do with the dice roller!

From a recent issue of our sites Ezine:
