I'm thinking perhaps a Warlock for my class choice, perhaps a changeling. I have some plans in mind, I'm just wondering if the Warlock thing would fit in this campaign. If not, that's fine, I can change it.

I'm curious but still thinking up a character concept. I've been toying with the idea of a simple villager who realized that her life was going to be dull and boring, and grew up reading a couple of books about fantastic adventures. So, she went out to intentionally become a "dashing hero" without really having an idea as to what that actually meant (in reality). Her time actually confronting danger has made her cautious, even as she speaks boldly. IDK... I'm still working on it.

Factions will be helpful. What does the world have in the way of underground organizations, schools (in addition to the military training academy thing in Wyndham), or major guilds?

Is sea travel very dangerous or just an everyday kind of thing?

Would you entertain custom backgrounds?

As far as underground organizations, Orison tries to keep tabs on all other relevant population centers. Shadow elves are thought to be working for them by most people. The Yuanti try to infiltrate governments. At large the world is fairly empty, so large scale subterfuge is still rare. Charenal had a thriving criminal scene, but the last whole city died. Ascension still has a lot of crime, and a relatively militarized police force.

There are schools for wizards dotting Orison, but Meir is home to a well respected school for wizards too. Really, Orison has the best general education system followed by the dwarves of Sudpek.

Sea travel is very common, but still mildly dangerous. The mariner dwarves of Wylie, make a good living minimizing the dangers.

A good guild to know is the Kobold's Entertainers Guild, KEG, runs Crckto, a tropical vacation spot, inns, and they're highly skilled and famous bards.

Centaurs run the Wayside Guild, a trader's guild that enforces trade rules.

I need to see the background.

I just got the Ravnica book, and immediately wanted to play one of these guys. I'm open to having come through a portal, or being native to this world. Just let me know.



Name: Healer Throom
Race(subrace too): loxodon
Class(intended subclass included): life domain cleric
Background: Throom was a wandering cleric, using his healing skill as an in for some casual evangelism, until he fell in with your party.
Homecontinent and region you come from mostly): Zelestin
Interest in the Lighthouse: Our Eldest Grandmother had a dream about a world omen, and all wandering loxodons are supposed to be keeping an eye out for it. Throom thinks this party is likely to find out a good deal.
Small section of writing examples: His arms were full, so Throom opened the door with his trunk, snorting afterwards to rid himself of the stench of hands covered in sweat, grime and worse that had clung to the knob. The party whirled--one of the things Throom loved about this group was their defensive reflexes--but then they stood open-mouthed, gaping at him.

"I found the child," Throom said. He laid the bundle gently on the table, and lifted the veil away from the little girl's fragile, unconcious face.

"I will need clean water," he said, "and the chest of herbs from under my bed. If we hurry, I think she will be able to speak to us within the hour. After that, she will need soft food, and rest."

In the back of his mind, Throom registered the sound of his companions hurrying to fetch the things he had requested, but his attention was on his patient as he gently probed for further injuries.

Post rate: Daily, usualy early morning here in UTC-6 (US Central).

This definitely looks to be an exciting game that I would love to be a part. As Iím applying with a Tortle, I wanted to know what god(s) if any, the Tortles of Scalia generally pay homage to.

The tortles don't really have gods. Their spiritualism usually takes the form of druidism, but they might adopt someone else's deities.

Got it, thanks. That actually works really well for my character concept 😁

I am super interested in this game but I've got a question before I write up an app. Can I play as a Drow?

Drow are an option. They're called Dark Elves more than anything else, high elves called them Earth Elves, and dwarves sometimes call them Forge Elves.

Application Complete
right-aligned image


Name: Dinaufein Baenar

Goes By: Din

Race: Dark Elf

Class: Monk (Way of Four Elements)

Background: Gladiator

Home Continent: Skittervane

Interest in the Lighthouse: Din's best friend is a Half-Elven, clerical woman named Lianna. A worshipper of Termin who introduced Din to worship of the god, something he's never looked back on. It's been hard to see her powers wane and her connection with Termin waver, while his own elemental abilities stay strong. He is determined to do something to help her and all others like her, and that means going to the lighthouse to see what's going on.

 


Post rate: Every other day to daily as needed. Will inform the DM of any circumstances that would prevent me from posting for any length of time.
