Removed - I would like to drop out as life just hit me and I don't think I'd be able to give your game the attention it deserves. I hope those that get in have a grand time though

Character Name: Cyril Harwin
Class: Oathbreaker Paladin
Species: Fallen Aasimar
Affliction: Lycan (Werewolf)

☄️DM NOTE:☄️ I read what you said about walls of text and I promise you I did not mean for my backstory to turn into a whole-ass seven page novella (yes I pasted it into Word to count) yet here we are. My posts in-game would be much more concise lol. Also I kinda took some liberties just on the idea of "flesh horrors" so if anything I wrote is incompatible with what you've got planned, it can all be retconned at some point. Besides that, this is a complete application.

Lefty's Application
right-aligned image

Character Name: Thanadon Ashvein

Class: Wizard
Species: Mountian Dwarf (with Dhampir template)
Affliction: Vampyr
Background: Cloistered Scholar
Trait: I have spent so much time away from others in pursuit of my studies that I have no idea, or desire to learn, how to act in social situations.
Trait: I will not stop until I learn everything there is to know.
Ideal: The path to power is through knowledge.
Bond: My life's work is a series of tomes related to a specific field of lore.
Flaw: Most people scream and run when they see a demon. I stop and take notes on its anatomy.

Description: Thanadon smiles rarely. He sees the world as a series of equations: how will this component react with that one? How will that person react to this situation? As such, he feels that humor and laughter only get in the way of data collection and observation. His black beard flows over robes that are more utilitarian than fashionable. Pockets and pouches line his robes filled with odds and ends which would engross and fascinate the average passerby. Thanadon's thirst for knowledge had led him into danger more times than he could count. It was also the reason that he became immune to the plague.

Backstory:
The Ashvein clan had long since moved on from this area, but Thanadon had stayed behind. He still had research to do. The plants and animals near his home provided all the alchemical components he needed. Occasionally he ventured off into the wilds, or worse, the cities, to find more exotic materials. But for the most part, he stayed in his hut in the wilds: extracting essence of toad, distilling chinchilla gizzards, and pickling goat hearts.

It was his quest for exotic ingredients that changed his life forever. He had been seeking the blood of the undead, a paradoxical problem from the onset when he first thought of the vampyrs. Their kind had been hunted for centuries, and generally considered a blight upon the land. But nobody could refute their staying power. They had been hunted for so long primarily because they had keen survival skills. Something that difficult to kill must be made of interesting alchemical components indeed. Imagine what a vampyr vivisection might reveal!

In the following months, he saved his most exotic reagents in preparation for the purchase. He sent out magical messages to all his contacts, and waited. One day an old woman came to his door. Excitedly, Thanadon invited her in and began rushing about his hut gathering all his exotic components to trade with her. But when he turned around, he gasped.

Before him stood not an old woman, but a tall, beautiful woman. She had long flowing black hair, pale ageless skin, and long slender incisors- Wait, teeth? Thanadon realized his mistake too late. When he came to hours later, a horrible thirst clenched his throat. He sat up from the floor and looked around.

The woman, or more accurately, the vampyr, sat on the edge of his bed reading through his research notes. "Interesting work you've been doing here. Whoever would have thought to hydrogenate harpy bile and combine it with powdered giant toenail. What were you hoping to achieve there?"

His academic side took over and Thanadon immediately forgot his terror. "I had observed a strange trait in harpy eating habits, how they often consume the bones and sinew with the rest of the animal, but unlike their other avian cousins, they do not cough up pellets. So I thought, what might be in their bodies that helps them digest the bone? It must be the bile, right? And everybody knows how tough giant toenails are so I wondered if-- Wait a moment. Did you bite me? Have I uh... changed?"

She smiled wickedly, showing far too many teeth. "Changed indeed. And for the better, I'd say. You will need to find ways to slake your thirst, but what I've given you is a far better trade-off. And besides," she pulled out a slip of paper with writing on it. "Your message said, 'Wanted: vampyr blood. One vial or perhaps more. Cost not important, willing to negotiate.' Well, I just skipped the negotiations."

She rose and walked toward the door, pausing to glance at the contents of his workbench. "Don't stop your research, though, whatever you do. Something dark is coming. You need to be ready."

With that, she was gone. Thanadon set about cleaning his lab and now that he had a nearly endless supply of vampyr blood, he nearly forgot about the whole ordeal. On occasion, he would send out requests for adventurers to help him gather some of the more dangerous alchemical reagents, and then when they were done he would drain them and dissect the body. But besides that, his work went on uninterrupted.

That is, until the plague hit. Out in the middle of nowhere, Thanadon never heard about the plague. His first inkling that something was amiss was when the adventurers stopped coming. As his supply of blood dwindled, he decided to set out with what he had and try to find out why.

Oh, ho! More adventurers looking to get down with the sickness!

I'll get the list updated!


@Nomad240, Let me know when you're ready and I'll get you checked in as "Complete".


@GreatSw0rd, I'll give the substantial backstory a read when I find some time! Definitely appreciate the note about keeping it more concise in-game.

However, there is one kinda-but-not-really sneaky element from the advertisement that you'll need to find before I can get you checked off as complete. Make sure to give every section a readthrough and find the highlighted "thing".


@leftyyy88, Welcome! I'll get you checked in!

Alright, I'll update your status!

Your application looks good. I'll be going through them all before the last week to give out any pertinent feedback. Generally, I assume that basic details can be realigned after selections are made, so I'm not being too critical at this stage.

Welcome Boss Nadar!

I don't see anything outlandish other than Sarah Kent herself, and that's just fine by me. I'll get you checked in!

Sorry to be that person, but if you want to talk privately, could you please use Private Messages, rather than send an alert to anyone following this thread? Thanks!
