Vulwin
right-aligned image

Name: Vulwin Ailre Tannaren
Race: Snowcaster Elf
Class: Bloodrager (Infernal Bloodline)

Description: With pale blue eyes and long black hair -unusual in Ilverani purebloods- Vulwin displays the typical icy stare of his people, rarely caught smiling. Despite the typical lean body of elves, he sports a wiry musculature, testament to years of training in the northic lands.

Personality: Cruel and snobby, Vulwin's only friend was his trusted steed, Tinesi. His subordinates respected him, but mostly endured his behaviour to avoid offending the spiteful prince.
Being second in line of succession, his parents focused their attentions to his older brother, who on the other side showed to possess all the qualities that a good ruler should have. This left a mark on Vulwin, making him bitter from infancy.

Background: Freed from the complexities of becoming a sovreign in the Crown of the World, the young prince only duty was to protect the icy borders of the realm and he relished it. His position granted him the best steel, the best men and undisputed leadership. The years went by in interminable silences in the snow punctuated by dutiful slaughter with weeks of hedonism when on leave; with the added bonus of honour for representing the crown in the best way he knew how.

One day, during the massacre of some dwarves from Zavaten Gura, in the joyous fury of battle, his sword caught on fire, making the prince even more deadly. Ecstatic, he was sure that the gods were rewarding him with more weapons to perform his duty. Returned home after decades, he showed the court his newly found power, but the wisemen decreed that the fire was of infernal origin. Since the prince swore to never had contacts with such entities, the only possible explanation in the eyes of the sages was that a devil tampered with Vulwin when still in the queen's womb.

For the crime of being tainted, he was sentenced to death, commuted in exhile as a reward for the service he provided to the community. Shunned with his favoured horse, his sword and armour, he was expected to wander through the icy wasteland until dead.
Vulwin spent the first few weeks fighting and eating everything he encountered, until Tinesi died of starvation. Crying and cursing the gods, the fallen prince ate his last friend, which prepared him mentally for his death. A week later he collapsed in the snow, his last thoughts were of his horse, and the thought that he deserved the end that he was embracing.

To his surprise, he woke up in a scorching green land, naked and with a small wound in his wrist.

*..they told me hell was hot, but hell! I'm burning here!*



Alignment wise i was thinking something along the lines of LN-LE but definitely not a murderhobo.

@OneDarkness, roll 2d6 plus 6, two traits, yes to background skills, Feats are as per core rules, everyone starts with nothing however casters will quickly obtain a spell book with their spells in it. a big part of the game is crafting, so divines can craft themselves a holy symbol. the beginning of the game is meant to be hard. correct, no equipment or money. the party start off with nothing and will have to craft or obtain their gear. that's part of the challenge of the game.

Character App
left-aligned image
Cassia Elmwood
Human, Female, Neutral with Good Tendencies
Feyspeaker Druid

Physical Description (As seen upon the beach when they awake)
A beautiful young woman with thick blonde curls that hang down to her mid back, eyes an enthralling shade of green and her skin barely marked by the passage of a dozen and half winters. She moves with a slow and purposeful, and boldly meets the eyes of others with the confidence of youth and something more. Upon her back is a large tattoo done in black of vine spiraling towards a center point of the data that is almost dizzying to follow and and at least a foot and a half in diameter, otherwise there are no other distinguishing marks upon her.

Personality
Cassia is an what you would consider an old soul, having understood young what many youths take far longer to understand, and is secure in her place in the world. She is cautious where needed, bold when required and more importantly has learned which is best when. She is not one to rush to judgement on something, but has a strong gut sense about things as well when required and is adept at calming the irrational impulses of others. She feels a deep connection with the natural world, sometime more fully than with her own kind but she still prefers their company over being along.

Background
Cassia grew iin a small village of no more than three hundred souls with a couple similarly sized villages nearby, and anything close to a city was days away to the point they were almost unknown. For the most part they were farmers, herders and woodsmen who made their life off the land and were ruled by village councils that were nothing more that a few elders around a table. Things were quiet and simply just the way these people liked it, sure from time to time somebody from afar would travel through and bring news of the world or some youngster wanted a grander life and would head for the city, but the rest were fine with the way things were. Cassia is the eldest daughter of the local wisewoman, and as far back as she can remember was groomed by her mother in the arts of healing and the natural world to replace her when the time comes. The wisewomen often served as mediators in the village and between villages, forming a bond between themselves to help keep their friends and families safe, and protecting them from dangerous elements that lurked within the deeper woods such as monsters that lurk or the fey which seek to lure unsuspecting villagers away. They Fey could be bargained with to return those taken or lured away, and those negotiations were carefully done, a talent which which was carefully nurtured when she went with her mother to find those taken.

Almost a grown woman herself now and well beyond her apprenticeship she was considered a wisewoman as well despite her age for they recognized within her one that understood the task before them, and she worked closely with her mother and the others to keep them all safe and tend to the needs of the villagers. Recently their discussion had been about a possible husband for Cassia, a topic she was not overly fond of as she considered herself unready to be tied to another in that fashion as of yet, especially with so few options among those her age to pick from and none really catching her fancy. The hope was though at the annual harvest festival, and the influx of people from the other villages who make the journey to celebrate with them, that she might find someone that would be acceptable but it seemed the fey had something different in mind for her....

Reminds me a lot of Ark Survival. I might be interested...

Is everyone basically waking up in the same place and pretty much playing as a group?

And.. what of deities? Would we assume standard gods that exist in other settings, or would we just make anything up?

Posting interest. I will need to work on my app, as I don't have an ideal concept for this setting in my current character backlog. Toying with druid, barbarian, or ranger, but may go with something else if another concept strikes me.

Do you want us to roll after selection? on another page somewhere? or going to trust what we rolled? And sorry if that's a dumb question, I just came from the NPSG, which was point buy.

Another quick question:
I get that a hunter/druid would not immediately start off with an animal companion (as per starting with zilch, nada, nothing), but I wanted to check that I could get a dinosaur early on. I think the core rule book has one or two of the properly level/hd/etc under the starting duid companions (I don't have the book in front of me atm), just wanted to make sure that was an option. I know it is not going to be an ankylosaurus or t-rex off the bat, clearly.

@DrowNinjaPrincess, Everyone will be waking up together, and the standard deities still hear you.

@Nahl, Rolling will happen in the mechanics thread after selection, Yes there will be several choices for dinosaur animal companions and familiars early on

App is done and ready for feedback. I'll clean it up over the next few days but the pitch, and the hooks to pull from are there.

”Character Application”
left-aligned image


Thrand
Neutral good, Half-elf, Hunter

Description: Thrand has black hair, starting to show more than a hint of grey. His beard and hair are well maintained for someone who lives on the edge of civilization. His dark blue eyes are rarely still, constantly scanning the world around him, alert for any change or abnormaility. His hands are heavily calloused and used to hard work. He is rarely idle, usually working on something, looking around, gathering wood, etc. He has a wiry frame, with more than one scar. He makes no effort to hide the slight points on his ears.

Personality: Thrand loves the wonders of nature, and could spend days immersing himself in it. He makes fast friends with animals. He is friendly to humanoids, until given reason to be otherwise; however, he can come across as slightly patronizing to those who seem to be less experienced in the wild, until he is more familiar with them.

Backstory: Thrand grew up in the woods. His father was a human ranger, his mother, an elven druid. Thrand loved the wilds, and made fast friends with any creature he could find. His parents’ small house was almost bursting with injured sparrows, orphaned fox cubs, spiders, and any friendly or injured creatures he could find. He learned to train many of these pets - here he collected most of his scars.

As he grew older, he began to use his skills to work as an animal trainer, a woodland guide, and a fugitive tracker. Most of the money he earned went to taking care of his ageing parents, until the day they died. His last connection to civilization severed, he buried himself in the wilds, training animals and living completely off of the land. For severl years, he gathered, hunted, or made whatever he needed to survive.

Seven months ago, deep in the wilds, he met Casandra, a human ranger of the Royal Scouts. Casandra gave him a reason to return to the civilized world, a reason to interact with something other than his animals...

Thrand was helping Casandra track an escaped fugitive. His wolf, Eric, accompanied them. He took the first watch, she took the second. He fell asleep, wrapping his cloak around him against the cool mountain air… he woke up naked, on a beach, under a blinding sun...

Congrats to Togot on proposing a game concept that is receiving quite abundant applicants.

If you had a trustworthy GM partner you could have that person co-GM a second party -- sharing all the same underlying game materials, just on a different part of the Island.

GM time and energy is most finite (and I for one don't have extra) -- but just sayin'.

Anyway, just reiterating my own interest per the previous post: Aaron and Escort.
