Given that elves' thing is being exceedingly healthy and universally hot, drow are effectively... normal. Being drow has nothing to do with skin color or relative evil or criminal activity. It's like comparing someone who would be considered pretty in normal society to movie stars and supermodels. There was an incident where most of the drow existing today are the descendants of elves who lived in underground shelters that were cheaply made and placed too close to buried radioactive waste. It does say something about the resilience of elves that despite all this, most of the consequences were a mild cosmetic dampening. The rest of drow are merely elves that aren't sufficiently "elven" though still fully elven genetically.

I'm surprised I missed this. Looks great. Would you allow the UA Rune Knight subclass for the fighter?

Actual giants are functionally extinct as a species (not biologically viable, oxygen requirements of megafauna), but half-giants are a thing. They are reclusive and nomadic, wandering the plains. Their secrets are jealously guarded, and their trust hard-won. In order to learn runic magic, you would need to have done something to really impress them.

It's not a make or break deal. If not I can go with another version of a fighter. Anyway, here's my WIP application.

ApplicationReady
right-aligned image


[Name:] Davi Althuyzer; Davi the Wastrel

[Race:] Variant Human

[Class:] Fighter

[Subclass:] Rune Knight

[Background:] Urban Bounty Hunter or Resurrection Men

[Writing Sample:]

The bloody sack's impact sent dust and tattered notes into the air. Considering the sorts of things that crossed this counter top, Davi was mindful to keep her mouth shut until the air had cleared. The surety on the other side did the same. Despite the precaution the air still tasted of the grave when she decided to speak.

"Wilhelm Arneson," she said with all the enthusiasm one reserves for paying their taxes.

"He's in a bag."

"Warrant and writ of procurement," she pulled two crumpled papers from her pack and handed them over. The sack groaned and rocked as the surety skimmed the writing.

"He's in a bag," he stated the obvious once again before crossing his arms, "Why the hell is he in a bag?"

The answer wormed its way out of the sack. Skittering along the counter a severed hand leapt for the floor. Its beeline for the door was only stopped by a well placed stomp from Davi's boot. It clawed and scratched at her foot in futility before she picked it up and tossed it back in the bag with the rest of the writhing mess, cinching it properly this time.

"Warrant said to bring back the whole body. The parts I cut off didn't want to stay put so... bag..."

[Secret:]

@danab It looks good to me. Davi seems pretty solid.

...Huh. I didn't pay attention, but Davi and Seraphina are remarkably similar characters. Whoops.

No worries, there is time.
I was actually thinking, given the structure of the setup, I might run two groups if there's enough interest before the deadline.

@AllyDJ Similar, but not the same. I think Seraphina is pretty unique.

Also, I suppose there's the specifics that Seraphina doesn't take contracts for people, only monsters. But yeah, they're similar but they have their specifics and very different attitudes towards the job.

I see them as complementary in respects but distinct. Seraphina, being with Reclamation, is more concerned with ridding the world of monsters, and Davi, being with the Resurrection Men, maintains a symbiosis with them.

Yep. I think they might get along, though Seraphina may enjoy the job a bit too much for some people's tastes.

That being said, I think I captured the feel of what I was going for-the professional that loves her work, especially when work is good. And also a bit of an instinctual predatory kinda vibe.
