I read that as the bathrooms at first, and was like, I really hope you don't need portals to find the bathrooms. That's one way to instill a sense of urgency, for sure.

The nice thing about portals is that if they are positioned conveniently, you don't need to find the bathrooms.

Imagine you get stuck in the Backrooms, spend a week trying to find your way out as you duck and dodge the attention of nightmare beings, and you find a room full of human waste that materializes out of nowhere with no explanation.

Ready as I'll ever be! ☄️

Sera Wigglehorn
right-aligned image

Character Name: Sera Wigglehorn

Class: Barbarian (Skypony Totem Warrior)
Species: Stout Halfling
Affliction: Vampyr

Background: Soldier
Trait 1: I enjoy showing off my strengths and like breaking things

Trait 2: I'm haunted by memories of war. I can't get the images of violence out of my mind.

Ideal: Greater Good. Our lot is to lay down our lives in defense of others. (Good)

Bond: My best friend saved my life in exchange for theirs on the battlefield. To this day, I will never let a friend die on me again.

Flaw: My hatred of my enemies is blind and unreasoning.

Description: Born in a different time than today, Sera's appearance has a strange gothic look to it. Her bright, auburn hair is tied neatly to a bun, accentuating her dark dresses. Despite her comely appearance, her eyes, that of a crimson red hue, give the feeling she could rip and tear through one’s flesh if she wanted to. Her meek smile, capable of turning to a snarling, almost bestial smile. Those beware if you cross paths with this 2 foot halfling for she has the might of ten men despite how short and frail she looks.

Even with her old life gone for good, Sera bounds herself to old habits. How could she forget the memories she made, no matter how much it hurts to do so. No matter how much violence she sees, she often reminisce of her life before her transformation to a monster. It's why generally she's polite to any she meets, even if they have a weapon raised on her. Well, I mean, if they threaten violence, she's gonna do so in turn and with such bloodthirsty glee. The gnawing desire for blood is all consuming, yet, she knows restraint, she has the totem to thank for that.

But anyways, another reason is that when your wandering alone as long as she, it forms a different craving, the need to cultivate a relationship that will vanquish her loneliness. She would much rather spend her time talking and drinking with comrades instead of shedding blood, yet fate can be cruel.
Backstory: Sera Wigglehorn was a soldier in the time before the pandemic that unleash Eldritch monstrosities upon the world. She joined up the army with her best friend, Bree Winters, that is until her untimely death in the battlefield that has scarred the young Sera even today.

That was the day she died too and came back. She was carrying the lifeless corpse of her friend toward the frozen tundra that has become a field of death. She kept trudging along, and kept going despite her very knees breaking by the cold. And soon, she fell, never reaching camp, all she could hear was the sound of winter's breath slowly killing her.

That is until she was found by a shaman. She found refuge among a circle of these shaman's focusing on some strange form of magic on the blood. They used this blood magic to revived her, transform her to a monster.

Yet she went on a rampage once she learned of what was used to revive her, her friend's heart, and without that heart Bree was loss forever. Her fury rage on for the night, bringing disaster upon those corrupted shaman. Her bloodlust lashing out, no longer seeing friend or foe, only the hunger remained. The blood flowed like a river before freezing over, and all that remained was a beast.

And then their came a silent calm, and tears shed as her senses returned to her, and the realization of the monster she become grew ever more dreadful. She thought she would die in the cold... Yet, the totem was what saved her on the end. These shaman's, exiled Ulthgards, still worshipped their totem. But this was corrupted and defaced in glory to their blood magic. Despite that, this totem called to Sera like a mother and inexplicably, she was guided through the frozen hellscape and soon wandered for many years until one day the pandemic that ruined the world came.

@Onward, I've got you marked in as "Completed"!

Announcement@All, we're 2 days out from the final week of the application deadline, and I am so grateful for all of the wonderful characters that everyone has brought to the table!

If anyone wants to make any changes to their completed application, I would recommend doing so by Midnight on November 25th. On the 26th, I will begin my comprehensive readthrough to start the filtering process, and may miss any changes that occur after that.

Applications will continue to be accepted until the countdown timer ends.

Application Deadline
Application SupportMuch to my chagrin, it won't be possible to accept all of the great applications. Different arrangements of characters will be better suited to different narrative paths, and it is my responsibility to choose a grouping that will tell the best story collectively, even if an application absolutely sparkles when read on its own.

The difference between a great application and an accepted application is often unknowable, however, if anyone feels like they have a good application that could be massaged into a great application, I encourage you to bring it to the Critique My Character thread to ask for feedback.

I won't personally critique any of the applications submitted for this game, but I've added a rubric there to make it easier for volunteers to do so.


*This is an unofficial resource, so it's entirely possible that no one will respond in time for the deadline. In which case, I would still encourage you to critique your own application using the rubric provided.

Puck
right-aligned image
Puck

Arcane TricksterRogue
Mordenkainen Presents: Monsters of the MultiverseFaerie
Vampyr

Physical Description: Before his affliction Puck was like many faerie, glowing skin with a hue of gold and bright green eyes that shine with the light of the Feywild. Since the acquisition of his vampiric curse his form has deteriorated.

Puck stands just shy of three feet. His once fair skin has wrinkled and faded and his feet and hands have grown weathered and hard. His eyes have turned a pale fleshy pink and his wings, once a beautiful tapestry of color that would reflect light like stained glass, have turned a blotched grey and begun to rot away.

He once adorned his body in beautiful flowers but now only death follows him leaving dried leaves and twigs as his only connection to a former self.

Personality: Puck is mischievous. Not even a vampiric curse can deprive a faerie of such a trait. He views his vampiric affliction as a burden, something that leaves him devoid of his connection to the Feywild and leaves him with an emptiness he his constantly trying to fill. He is kind when needed but will hold a terrible grudge to those who slight him and he puts his loyalty to the fey as a priority, perhaps in someway to retain a piece of his former self. He hides his wings whenever suitable in a vain attempt to forget his current condition and while a bitterness has crept upon him there are still occasions when a childish manner slips out.
