Hahah, I'm an idiot. I forgot about Xanathar's. So... Other licensed content is fair, thats cool.

Good luck with your first time DMing!

I hate to be that b1tch, but I noticed applicants here are using UA content, which is currently off the table. Are you willing to lean on this, or do you really want us to stick to the PHB? Nevermind, I'm dumb.

Placeholder App
Character Name: Faxanadu Pistolwhip (not a real name)
Race: Probably dwarf
Class: Wizard, Bard, Fighter... Not sure yet
Background: Probably Soldier, maybe Cloistered Scholar


So here are my favorite questions to ask about a campaign:
1. What are the dwarves up to?
2. Is there an Underdark?
3. Do PCs know what the greater threats are? Is there a way to tie our motivations into the plot?
4. Do you believe in love at first sight? Nevermind, don't answer that one.


*Dont be pedantic, you know what I mean lol
1. Dwarves live in Danielle next to the silver lake and are in their opinion the finest crafter in the land. They lay clans to the mountain range from the ferian gap downwards. In dispute with mellisand as they have been found to be mining the mountain.

2. You don't know

3. Roll for knowledge in most cases. And I will try if you tell me the motivation.

Anyways, I'm interested, so this a placeholder post of sorts. One question:
How optimized would you like characters to be? Alternatively, how deadly is this campaign likely to be?
Deadly..... Mabey after level 8?

Play the character how you want. I don't know how to answer.

Amos ben Isaac
left-aligned image

RACE: Human
AGE: 52 (and feeling it!)
CLASS: Fighter (Battle Master)
BACKGROUND: Faction Agent

DESCRIPTION: Amos is a dark skinned heavy man with greying grizzled hair and beard. He moves slowly, sometimes with a limb and is troubled by pain in his feet (plantar fascitis) and his hands (rheumatoud arthritis) as well as all the other stiffness and aches that come with age. He is still alert and strong willed however, and the old tree may be less supple but its roots run deep.
HISTORY: Amos was an infantryman for the empire, and a good one. Until, that is, he came into contact with this new religion that they had been ordered to put down. He had done brutal and ugly things for the empire but somehow, these people gave him troubled dreams and sleepless nights. He started to question everything he had stood for: duty, loyalty, obedience. And so he started talking to the people, first the captured ones due to be killed and later those still free. And they made sense of the world for him. He became a convert, retired, and started a farm. Now his sons are running the farm and one of the leaders of his faith has come to him and asked him to follow and guard <a person>.

"You've heard right. You'll not find a finer ring anywhere."
Brokkr shakes his head slowly and majestically, making the gold rings in his beard shine, and glint in the sunlight.

QUESTIONS:
(1) I have based this on the early Christian movement during the Julian emperors of Rome. What would be the equivalent in the empire of your world? The more information, the better I can roleplay the differences.

(2) What are we told about our mission when we start? How do we find out we are needed? I have tried to give a hook about protecting someone (possibly one of the other party members) who might or might not know more about this than I do but that's really just putting off the question to one remove.

 
Trust me, you'll know what your working to prevent. But it won't be handed on a platter. A friend will direct you to your intent, but won't give you the answer.

Changeling Traits

Ability Score Increase: Charisma +2. The chosen ability score is Pending.

Shapechanger: As an action, you can change your appearance and your voice. You determine the specifics of the changes, including your coloration, hair length, and sex. You can also adjust your height and weight, but not so much that your size changes. You can make yourself appear as a member of another race, though none of your game statistics change. You can't duplicate the appearance of a creature you've never seen, and you must adopt a form that has the same basic arrangement of limbs that you have. Your clothing and equipment aren't changed by this trait. You stay in the new form until you use an action to revert to your true form or until you die.

Changeling Instincts: You gain proficiency with two of the following skills of your choice: Deception, Insight, Intimidation, and Persuasion. The chosen skills are Insight and Persuasion.

Languages: You can speak, read, and write Common and two other languages of your choice. The chosen languages are Goblin and Infernal.

Warlock Patron: The Hexblade
Bard College: College of Whispers
(Half) Changeling Warlock 2/Bard 3
Passive Perception 11 Initiative +0
Languages Common, Elvish, Goblin, Infernal
Background Faction Agent {Many organizations active across the world aren't bound by strictures of geography. These factions pursue their agendas without regard for political boundaries, and their members operate anywhere the organization deems necessary. These groups employ listeners, rumormongers, smugglers, sellswords, cache holders (people who guard caches of wealth or magic for use by the faction's operatives), haven keepers, and message drop minders, to name a few. At the core of every faction are those who don't merely fulfill a small function for that organization, but who serve as its hands, head, and heart. As a prelude to your adventuring career (and in preparation for it), you served as an agent of a particular faction in the world. You might have operated openly or secretly, depending on the faction and its goals, as well as how those goals mesh with your own. Becoming an adventurer doesn't necessarily require you to relinquish membership in your faction (though you can choose to do so), and it might enhance your status in the faction.Safe Haven}

I'd like to put a character forward for this

Application
right-aligned image
Name: Dianthus
Race: High Elf
Class: Bladesinger Wizard
Background: Entertainer

I'm envisioning a dancer trained in a lost art of sword wielding combined with magic, who makes her living as a dancer and wants to make the world a better place.
  • Trait - I change my mood or my mind as quickly as I change key in a song.
  • Ideal - Beauty. When I perform, I make the world better than it was. (Good)
  • Bond - I idolize a hero of the old tales and measure my deeds against that person's.
  • Flaw - A scandal prevents me from ever going home again. That kind of trouble seems to follow me around.


I hope that's something that might fit into your game. Good luck to everyone looking to join.

Character Background: Charlatan
Details: A 'magician' who relies on brilliant tricks and clever illusions to supplement his almost total lack of magical ability.

Hmmm interesting.

Placeholder! Done with the initial concept, hope it appeals to you! Thought of a hook that could be related to this Armageddon you've got planned. If not, it's fine as a possible side quest as well. Tell me what you think and I'm open for suggestions/constructive critique.

When's the deadline for applications?

Character Application

Strength demanded respect for Burzlog Frostfang. As a Barbarian 3 (Bear Totem)/Druid 2 (Circle of the Moon)barbaric half-orc who lived amidst the chaos and dangerous wastelands in the wild western plains, strength meant survival; for only the strong could truly thrive in those barren lands. That is, until he and his tribe were driven from their homes by some kind of eldritch blight, that sapped the life out of all that lived and breathed in the forest. Most of his people managed to escape with their lives, but it was only a matter of time before the disease spread and would again reach them.

Now, Burzlog sought help from the eastern kingdoms to investigate and end the plague; with luck and a little help from new friends, perhaps he could give his people a fighting chance...
