Application
right-aligned image

Name: Ryldnet Quavylan
Alignment: LN
Class/Path: Monk (Shadow)
Background: Hermit

Ideal: Logic. Emotions must not cloud our sense of what is right and true, or our logical thinking.

Bond: I'm still seeking the enlightenment I pursued in my seclusion, and it still eludes me.

Flaw:I like keeping secrets and won't share them with anyone.

Personality: There is no drow that could care less about what happens to others or to society itself. Ryldnet is a an almost emotionless drow that follows logic behind his actions. He rather stick to the rules unless the risk is really outweighed by the reward punishment seems senseless unless there are really compelling reasons. Ryldnet likes to participate in new experiences to try to feel any rush in his emotions so he'll always pursue something that might seem like a thrilling experience.

Ryldnet is indifferent if we speak about Lolth and his followers. The goddess is not anything new for him and her followers are too much of a hassle for him to take any importance to them. He respects and follows only to not receive a senseless punishment.

History: Ryldnet is one of the clear reasons why you should never try to venture into the underdark. Being in another drow settlement Ryldnet was the third born male heir of a noble house, the now drow Monk couldn't cope with the insignificance, indifference and abuse expected of a male and as more time passed he grew more till he was exiled of his house.

Ryldnet actually managed to survive some months in the underdark, a rough survival but a short one. Some time in the underdark he was captured by a fleeing drow wizard somehow had managed to get hold of a lone structure in the middle of the underdark. This lead to experiments in the control of people, the test subject was Ryldnet and the result was the depravity of most of his emotions.

Ryldnet's salvation lasted too much to come as he suffered for 10 years. The reason of his salvation was a mistake from the wizard he dwelled too close to Cloibbra while looking for a new test subject but did this in the monks rounds of patrol, the wizard took out some but was overwhelmed and by the monks. With some investigation and "interrogation" locating the structure and with it Ryldnet. Extreme serenity and missing emotions was Ryldnet signature mark and that was enough to impress the monks. Now Ryldnet meditates every day in hope of finding his feelings and emotions, it has certainly worked with almost not noticeable effects.

RP sample: Now getting rather far of Cloibbra Some of the drow start eyeing one another these details don't escape Ryldnet's notice but he decides to pay no mind, rivalries or noble matters were not any of the monk's concerns but, getting farther from the city only seems to build tension in the patrol.

One of the fighters readies his weapons but before he could do anything Ryldnet speaks up "I'm a Monk my only work here is making sure no one gets in or out of the city. I don't care about your mundane trouble but, you should be aware of other things aside other drows. " all of the drows look at each other in confusion expressing some concerns one of the fighters asks "What do you.... " the second he mutters those words a rock smashes against the dark elf's face knocking him to the ground.

"YEEEAAAHRRGHH!!! " the scream was more like a screech that was coming behind the rocks. The group was being ambushed by two duegars but they looked like they had gone mad. Ryldnet scans the situation "they are only two if I don't count the one on the ground we are seven against them. with this thought Ryldnet walks to the rear of the squad and does nothing the entire battle.

The fight was somewhat of a struggle but nothing grave happened only three injured and the duegars were captured for possible questioning. One of the injured approaches Ryldnet with a Furious look in his face. "Hey, you USELESS Monk. why did you not do anything during the entire battle? " the ever Calm Ryldnet responds. "We were more than enough to take care of the problem and I don't see the point of unnecessary conflict. Even if the worse were to come they would had killed you all but would have been weakened enough for me to finish the job. " The monks word didn't improve the drows mood but just as he prepares to shout at him Ryldnet punches him in a vital point.

"you shouldn't had to approach me alone you gave me the chance to knock you out. I could sense you were looking for a excuse to attack me by now." the injured elf collapses in Ryldnet's arms looking at the rest of the squad he screams "HEEEEY, HELP ME WITH THIS ONE HE HAS COLLAPSED. " the cry for help didn't have any sense of worryness so they weren't if taking him serious until they saw the Monk dragging the fighter back to the city.

There are goals, and players can take as long as they want to get there (for the most part). Currently, the party is tracking down some duergar who have discovered the city's existence (with the aid of some traitorous drow from the city).

Name: Urza Halduin
Alignment: LE
Class/Path: Fighter - Battlemaster
Background: Soldier - Officer
Ideal: Might. In life as in war, the stronger force wins. (Evil)
Responsibility. I do what I must and obey just authority. (Lawful)
Bond: My honor is my life.
Flaw: I’d rather eat my armor than admit when I’m wrong.

Personality: Urza believes that his family deserves to be one of the most respected houses of Cloibbra, and will do anything that his Matron's desire to make it so. If he is ordered to kill, he will ask how he should leave the corpses, or get rid of them for good. If he is ordered to torture and interrogate, he will do so with such mercilessness that the Nine Hells would seem like a better place to be. If he is ordered to take out one of his brothers for shaming his family, he will strike without hesitation and leave their corpses for others to see what happens to traitors. Outside of his home, he is a feared and loyal warrior, devout to Lloth and the word of his Matron. Inside, he conspires to become the greatest warrior in his family, to take out the current Weapon Master and leader of his families' military, Foran Halduin, his eldest brother. He has made himself close to his brother, gaining his trust, but knowing that Foran will do anything to keep his position as well. As of right now, they have no reason to kill one another, but when the time comes, one of them will fall to the other.

He is calm and collected, speaks with authority and doesn't flinch in the face of fear, he is quick to action, especially if someone is taking a jab at his family and his house. His skills with weapons is impressive, he enjoys the life that he lives and the role that he plays within his house. He hopes that when he comes to power and takes his brothers title he can bring pride to his family by leading them to a spot on the council. If he were to die, it would be in battle, meeting his match on the battlefield.

History: Urza is the 4th oldest of 6 children that his mother and father created in the name of Lloth. Four of them are his sisters, members of the clergy, as well as paladins, worshipping Lloth, performing rituals and sacrificing to their god to aid in their rise to power. He only has one brother and he is older than Urza by several decades. When he was young, he was noted for following the words of his sisters and mother well, only receiving a few lashings hear and there when he didn't know what he had to do. But he learned quickly and made sure that he did not do so after the first time. He respects and fears his sisters and mother, their powers and closeness to Lloth makes him envious as well.

He was sent to the military academy, where all designated fighters were sent to learn the art of martial combat. There he began to flourish, he picked up things quickly, learning how to defend himself, while placing a lot of pain on his opponent. His teachers were pleased, his mentor, a member of his house trained him day and night, drilling into him the knowledge of combat.

He had been involved in patrols outside of the city, having to take out threatening forces that tried to get near the city walls, he spent years on these tours, fighting all manner of creatures that lived in the Underdark. He was knowing fighting mercilessly, not afraid to stand face to face with his enemy and watch the life leave it's eyes as Urza ended them with his blade. He was feared and respected amongst his fellow soldiers and had stopped many attempts to have his life ended early by other families' soldiers.

When he completed his training and had fulfilled his time on guard duty, he came back to his home and joined his house's military, wishing to one day become the Weapon Master of his house, which had gone to his brother, who had defeated his father in combat. To beat someone like his father, considered one of the best duelists in the land, was no small feat and Urza knew that he had to be careful and patient in order to take his brother's place.

He has since been involved in plenty of raids, attacking smaller houses that wished to take their place amongst the rankings of the houses. As well as being his brother's eyes and ears when they invaded other houses. He has had to interrogate others, torture them if need be, as long as they got the answers they needed. If some dirty work needed to be done, than he would have it done carefully and to the last little detail that he would be told to do. And so his life goes, doing what needed to be done, and plotting for the battle that would come between him and his older brother.

RP Example: Urza walked along the walls of, the city, it's darkness only lightened by the natural eyes of his kind, he walked along the outside of the walls, patrolling the area in case something from the Underdark came and attempted to enter or attack his home. It was simply guard duty, to watch the walls, make sure nothing happened then go back to base and report what had happened. No other creature during his time had attempted to even get close to the walls, the fear of what would happen to them must be well known.

This guard duty was different from his usual ones though, his normal partner for this assignment was a member of his house known as Fillan, a ranger that was good at tracking and finding things that were out of the ordinary. But he didn't show up this time, instead he was assigned another Drow by the name of Jackin Gedoria.

The two had been posted together at the last minute by the generals, his usual patrol partner was said to have been ill and couldn't make the rounds, this made Urza suspicious. If he was sick, he would have heard word earlier about it from the ill one himself. It was the order of things, since the person he was with was part of his house.

The two walked the designated route, the other Drow spoke to him, they made small talk, but something wasn't right. There was some shakiness to the elf's voice, like he was nervous. Urza decided to let it continue, but began to suspect that he was being set up, he moved himself closer to the wall, with his shield now facing Jackin.

It wasn't unusual for something like this to have happened, it was part of the life that he lived. Luckily, he had been trained to look for signs that this might be happening to him and what to do when placed in this situation. He continued on like nothing was wrong and played along with the Drow. They came upon a clearing or rocks and the wall to the city, a good enough spot for an ambush.

Jackin, quickly drew a dagger and tried to stab Urza, but if he had been paying attention, he had placed Jackin on his shield side while they walked, so when the strike came, he was easily able to block the attack.

"I am honoured, you think so highly of me that you would wish me dead, unfortunately, this fight is not in your favour." He said calmly, as he took a club from his belt, he cracked it across his enemy's face. Jackin cried out, holding the side of his face, then attempting to slash Urza with his dagger. But the drew blocked the blade again, listening as it skidded across his shield.

"You pathetic coward, if you would have openly challenged me, then I would have honoured you with a true warriors death, now, you will be beaten down like a pathetic little goblin." He said as he struck the Drow again and again, until all that was left was a lifeless corpse. He then went through the motions of letting the higher ups know that this elf had gone made and attempted to assault him. He had no choice but do defend himself and end the life of Jackin.

As it was within the city and the life of a Drow, he showed him the body and the dagger in his hands. Not much else was asked, they reported to death, but took the words of Urza as truth. They then disposed of the body and went on their way, it was just another day in the life of a Drow in the city of Cloibbra.

@The Dark Star; Background looks fine, but there isn't any light in Cloibbra (for story reasons). Light is only used indoors, and even then only after enough care is taken to ensure it won't spill out into the streets. It's such a serious matter in the city, that the matron of the second-most powerful house in the city doesn't even allow light in her house at all.

Can you write up a character sheet for me to look over? Don't worry about HP to start.

@Boltz; I will accept you ahead of the deadline. Please check your PM for info. We might need to tweak your background a bit (I will give you a better synopsis of the history of Cloibbra), and I will give you a "starting point" so we can get you into the action earlier.

@Superstrength79 that's perfect I don't mind tweaking the background if it is for the sake of the story. I will check now the pm.

@thedarkStar Hope to see you there dark.
