It depends on your background so you can not quite be one yet or you can be one. The journey would work quite well for the threads which I will attempt to work towards joining other groups.

Well alright! In that case, I shouldn't need to add any more to my app unless you feel it needs a few more layers. If you go back a page, you'll find it happy to hear any criticisms or ideas you have for him.

Character Application #1
Name: Monia Scarlet
Class: Titan Fighter 1/Battle host 5
Race: Human*
Appear: wild fiery hair, emerald eyes, Tan complexion.
Background: Novice to the order...
Flaw: ill famed proportions
Role: WARRIOR
Special: can wield a large sized 48 lbs falchion two handed
***********************************************
BACKGROUND
__________The Sword of misfortune has never left our house______________

When Monia was little, Her human mother taught her many things: The brutality all men were capable of, How the degree of one's freedom is equal to the strength of the sword arm or the might of magic, and perhaps the greatest secret of all...
Her great grandmother Stryel'Scarlet was born of an orc of great size and a fire giant.
She in turn bedded a mighty orc chieftain. Her daughter Astrid was smaller than she, but Astrid would bear the blade to win her own battles and she lay claim to a mighty Man. The daughter of that union Mariell was smaller still, but she too bore the blade. Take heed, for I am your mother. You must bear the blade as well, for the sword of misfortune has has never left our house. You monia are daughter of a man whom I rode into battle with, we were raiders. Defending her tower an elf enchantress, smote us with spells of heated passion and frenzied lust. Skyclad and stripped of weapons the elven sorceress found us. She cast a charm on us, forcing us to make war against our own. My love did not survive. I your mother have survived, and I bore you.
_ _ This is why monia is so big. This is why monia is so strong. This is why she alone was worthy to train with her great grandmother's blade. In the generations that followed Stryel, each generation the daughter took up the blade. They would take up the blade to discover their strength, They would take up the blade to earn their freedom. Monia would be no different.
_ _ As a girl she could barely lift the blade. As she grew the training was torture: each swing would break bones in her wrists, each furious swing had enough momentum to yank her off of her feet and send her crashing headlong. Each time she would receive only a drop of a healing elixir so that she would mend right. Though no more than that drop, for complete magical healing returns everything as it was. Just a drop to mend rightly, and the rest of the healing causes the bones to heal stronger. As she grew, She trained, and in that training Monia's bones broke many times. She learned to wield the great blade, she learned to swing in swift sweeping arcs, she learned to use the momentum of the blade- not to fight against it. Monia learned powerful stances, swirling combinations, and defenses against the small, the tiny.
_ _ Then one day, Monia was visited by her ancestors in a dream. They told her it was time for her to go into the world. It was time for monia to earn her freedom. They stand with her, they would give her guidance, they would lend her strength. In time they would help her to find a man worthy of her.

Keep in mind that you should stick to the core classes. Battle Host is some sort of Occultist archetype right?

Yup.
Didn't I attach the character sheet in the Name?
You can think of it as a Bard that doesn't sing...
Let me know what you think: is the character original? is Monia worthy of knighthood?

Would need to see backstory first. That's really the most important part of a character. A giantess could be interesting though.

Looks good so far Psychic Guy, just need a background.

For anyone else interested the groups are level 6 and here's a description of the city of Fallhold:
In the distance is a large mountain peak at the bottom of a cliff is a city unlike any you’ve seen. Windmills scatter around the bottom of the cliff and the city itself is built into the mountain seemingly carved from it and it gleams of various stones polished to a pristine sheen. An aqueduct flows through the city from the heights of this cliff seemingly constructed in the deep snow pack at the top it ends at the very bottom of the cliff in a huge reflecting pool with a gleaming Mithril statue of a winged woman standing over a demon lord stabbing her blade into it. Wounds in the statue including a wing that has been ripped off bleed water from the aqueduct into the reflecting pool. You suspect that at the right time of year the rising sun would color the water red and make the scene complete.

Remember to adjust your trait your Trait and your Gear, psychic guy. Only one trait allowed in this campaign, and you only get some mundane gear to start out with.

okay, "Pass for human" trait removed. Also stripped to minimal gear...
However, her ancestral blade is made from Silver Sheen and masterwork quality is incorporated in that cost. The weapon counts as silver, is immune to rust (including rust monster attack), and by virtue of being the battle host's bonded item it is also immune to the broken condition...

Monia, she may love her blade... but, is fully aware there will be situations where it can not be used.

Another of my homebrew adventures - Run Away Bride

A horde of monsters was bent on sweeping westward... eradicating all the "Races of Light". Goblins, Hobgoblins, Orcs, Gnolls, kobolds, Lizardfolk, Troglodytes, Ogres, and Hill Giants, even a green and a black dragon. All united under the banner of a former hero paladin (under a crown of reverse alignment)...
The war had been long, and terrible. The paladin taught his army of "Snarks", or "Snarkin" to work together and utilize their strengths. He gave them leadership, he gave them purpose, he gave them order and organization, he gave them... strategy.
A dozen Human cities razed to the ground, leagues of halflling farm plains flooded becoming swamps, and an entire elven forest kingdom burnt down, Dwarves under mountain were not able to keep their steadfast holds. It took a year of ruin before the "races of light" could overcome their differences and their legacy of feuds. Realizing that they must fight together, or be extinguished one by one- They united. They rose up. They fought back to protect those they love, to reclaim their lost kingdoms, and to defend their way of life. Monia joined the fight on the side of the "light".

Someone saw her, someone who would try to claim her as a prize, as the spoils of war.
One of the "Nobles" in the brave "rear guard" none the less...
****************************************And Then***************************
Being forced to marry a man is one thing, but forced to marry an old ashen tyrant, one that had mercenaries drug, capture, and imprison her in the high tower of his family mansion... this was entirely another!
The man was lou Des'Xan the last of the corrupt Des'Xan bloodline. A noble family that had been tyrannical, abusive, and at one time made their family power and wealth from slavery. She discovered the old wretch's secret and learned of his plans for her.
She escaped and fled.

About the Rings...The wedding rings had been passed down through the family for generations. The husband's ring was called "The summoner's circle", and the wife's was the "binding Circle". Lou Des'Xan, was already wearing his ring...
If Monia should somehow be forced into wearing the other ring, she would face a fate worse than death. The magic of the rings gave the wearer of the "summoner's circle" total control of the wearer of the "binding circle", as if the wearer was the subject of a planar-binding/ with the service being a wedding vow twisted into a single command to love, serve, and surrender to the wearer of the summoner's ring until death...

A call for heroes, mercenaries, and other groups of "problem solvers" to come to the Des'Xan Manse where the one and only servant will greet them and lead them to the study. There Lou Des'Xan tells them that his betrothed wife was abducted the night before the wedding day. He plays on their "do'gooder" nature and/or greed with promises to pay a most generous reward for the return of his wife. He wishes them to hurry as her life may be at stake!

Heroes who search her room and the grounds for clues rightly assess that She left without struggle. As it is entirely possible that the kidnappers used magic to compel her to go with them, this is just a "Sticking point" rather than a clue that something is amiss...
Once out the back gate, the party is traveling through the wilderness, tracking and searching as they go.
They have a wilderness encounter (wolves). They meet another neutral search party. later on find her just having escaped the clutches of a large strangle vine, The heroes try to catch up, but have to deal with the strangle vine. After this the heroes encounter a hostile search party that has her trapped, these bounty hunters don't want to share the reward at all!

Once the heroes deal with the murderous bounty hunters, Monia tells them what she's learned. The Des'Xan family fortune is long gone, the mansion and lone servant is all that remains. She tells them that there is only one certain way for them to collect their due. She has to go back with them, she has to marry him.

They do this, but there is a twist. Lou Des'Xan has his servant pass out glasses of red wine, and tells them they will get their reward after the ceremony is finished. The wine is poisoned. The doors are bared. Des'Xan doesn't intend to pay anyone anything.

With the ring on, and the words you may kiss the bride...
Monia uses enlarge person and grapples the geezer in between her outrageous cleavage... In moments, the deed is done. The evil geezer is smothered to death.
Monia removed the ring, and says, "Till death do us part".

Monia bequeaths the manse, the grounds, the rings, and any of the Des'xan fortune to the heroes before she leaves. Debtors arrive with a young noble who wishes to buy the Estate. The mansion is sold to clear the debits, severance pay to the servant, and the remainder is given to the heroes.

Monia, is long gone. Her certificate of marriage burnt to ashes as if it never was...

***************************And NOW*********************************
This brush with tyranny, has given her a new fervor. A desire to serve something greater, incorruptible, to uphold ideals of justice and to fight for what is good and true. Monia chooses to become a knight, to devote her strength, honor, and courage to serving and protecting the weak and downtrodden.

For stuff an giggles, the Name Lou Des'Xan is a twisted play on the word "Scandalous"...

A little strange, but I can work with it. I’ll bring you in at the Knights Chapterhouse in Fallhold.

Could still use one or two more....
