Tol Khan
The Demon of the forest

Appearence: You see green spiraling tattoos cover a slim face. You look over at a small body cloaked in brown, camouflaged against the surrounding shrubbery. It rushes for you, with what you recognize as a trident in one hand. In one second, that trident is hurling towards you. In Another, it is in your chest. Just one more second, and he stands above you. From here, you see his long pointy ears and dark hair atop a small, thin, almost fragile body. This is your last sight.

Personality: He is quiet. It is not known whether he has little knowledge of the common tongue, or if he prefers the silence. Only the most crucial of questions answered, and only this after a couple moments of quiet thought. Single word answers are preferred. While difficult, friendship is not impossible. In fact, if one does not mind talking to a wall, a bond may easily be formed for Tol enjoys listening to people talk.

What you'd like to get from this game: I want to have an adventurous role playing experience. I hope to make friends and just have an all-around good time.

Will you accept a Arcane archer archetype from UE?

Will you permit the Half-elf Variant too?

I wonder if you are open to a custom feat for level 4. I want to change "Crossbow expert" Feat for one that can use. I have this Idea for a feat:

Melee Archer
  • You can use your longbow or shortbow as a one handed melee weapon. This attack uses the Dexterity ability modifier. The weapon’s damage die for this attack is a d4, and the attack deals bludgeoning damage.
  • Being within 5 feet of a hostile creature doesn’t impose disadvantage on your ranged attack rolls when you're using a Longbow or Shortbow.
  • When you take the Attack action within 5 feet of a hostile creature and attack with only a Longbow or Shortbow, you can use a bonus action to make a melee attack with one of edges of the bow. This attack uses the Dexterity ability modifier. The weapon’s damage die for this attack is a d4, and the attack deals bludgeoning damage.

To be honest, I would like to be a magic version of Green Arrow, like in the "arrow TV show", he uses the bow to hit their opponents when the approach to melee range or shot to one enemy far away and then hit one opponent that is in melee range!:P

Question: I have JUST started to learn 5.0, barely scratched the surface. Have never played a 5.0 game but have made two PC sheets. I am working with someone 1:1 to learn the system.

Would it be worth my time (and yours) to apply or do you prefer people with some experience?

Thanks either way,

DiG

I'm not a the dm but I would suggest an app anyway since deadline is getting close. 5e is more streamlined. I only played a bit of 3.5. When I swi5ched over seemed like less math. New addition is advantage and disadvantage. Roll d20 twice take higher if advantage. Take low if disadvantage.

Plus, when it comes to PbP, storytelling tends to be more important than a deep understanding of the rules. :3

Exterminator Looking For a Job

Posted on Town Hall Community Board
right-aligned image
Advertisement: Hjalmar Nilsson has been traveling across and below the surface of the land for years, solving the pest problems of towns, cities, and farmsteads.

Orcs and goblins raiding your caravans? Hjalmar can help! Wolves or owlbears making off with your livestock? Hjalmar can help! Bards seducing your wives and daughters? Hjalmar can help! Vampiric Half-Dragon Tarrasque Lich eating your castle? Hjalmar cannot help.


Application (Complete)
Pest Control
left-aligned image

'Got a problem that won't go away? Hjalmar Nilsson can fix it fast.'

Name: Hjalmar Nilsson
Race: Human Variant (Crossbow Expert Feat)
Class: UA Ranger (Deep Stalker)
Alignment: Lawful Neutral (Evil and Good actions, but only when contracted to do so.)
Background: Proficiencies: Survival, Stealth
Feature: Problem Solver - My reputation proceeds me wherever I travel. Wherever there are civilized people, there are problems that need solving, and I can find those problems and turn them into lucrative contracts.
Tool(s)/Language(s): Thieves' Tools
Trait: I am always calm, no matter what the situation. I never raise my voice or let my emotions control me.
Trait: I will accept and complete any job. Ethics and morality are meaningless to me.
Trait: I always follow the laws of the land, and I always follow the provisions of the contracts I agree to.
Ideal: Reputation. If I slip up, even once, my mistake will follow me for the rest of my life.
Bond: I'm secretly proud that my work generally makes the world a better place.
Flaw: It's easier to understand people when I apply a label or stereotype to them, and ignore their individuality.
Exterminator (Pest Control)

Personality/Physical Description: Hjalmar Nilsson grimaced as he looked at his reflection in the mirror. The man who glared back at him bore no resemblance to the man he once was. Vicious scars, burns, and permanent discolorations wrote a diary on his face, of his mistakes and closest brushes with death. It had been almost a year since Hjalmar had seen the sun, and though his eyes had become well-adjusted to the blackness of these underground passages, his skin had grown as pale as a cave fish. 'Bah.'

Hjalmar turned his head, spat on the floor, and ground it into the stone with the toe of his boot. The Duergar don't hire yah because yar pretty. He gave himself a last glance in the mirror before shouldering his pack, and picking up his hand crossbow and custom Svirfneblin-designed shield, and he stalked toward the door of his room. They hire yah because they know y'always finish the job.

Background Narrative/RP Sample: Seeing the Duergar patrol approach, Hjalmar's hand went instinctively to his shoulder, to ensure his identification badge was present and visible. He nodded at the Gray Dwarves as they passed without glancing at him. If he was found without his papers, there was a good chance he would spend a day or three in a Duergar jail cell, before an official would realize who he was. Then, most likely, the stumpy bastards would determine he was more useful as a contractor than as a slave in the mines, and they would give him back his gear and set him free. But then... there was also the chance that they would decide otherwise.

Hjalmar traveled through the foul-smelling Darklake District towards the eastern city gates. He had been tasked with exterminating a group of Derro that had escaped the city and were hiding in the tunnels, harassing merchants coming into and out of Gracklstugh. It was a simple, easy contract, but the Duergar paid well, and as long as he maintained his usefulness to them, he had little to fear. Sometimes, Derro contracts felt like slaughtering kids; insane, homicidal, white-bearded kids, but kids nonetheless. They rarely put up much of a fight, and he usually spent more time chasing the runners down after he put down the bold ones. A job's a job.

Upon reaching the gates, Hjalmar handed the Stone Guard his papers and stood quietly while the Dwarf perused the document, pulled out a pen, and made a note and signature at the bottom. He handed the paper back to Hjalmar and said in a deep, gravelly rumble, 'Three days, sunborn,' a veiled insult to denote Hjalmar's surfacer and outsider status. 'If you aren't finished and back in three days, then don't bother coming back at all.'

Doing his best to hide his disdain for the guard, Hjalmar replied, 'I'll be done long before that.'

The Stone Guard ignored the comment, and staring straight ahead he boomed, 'Open the gate.'

Immediately, chains, gears, and ratchets began their cacophony and they were soon joined by the grinding of the heavy door as it scraped across the stone floor. The gate opened just wide enough for a man to fit through, and it stopped. Hjalmar stepped through, and started down the road. Behind him, he heard the booming voice again command, 'Close the gate.' The angry noises began again, and with finality, the gate crashed into its closed position, leaving Hjalmar alone in the quiet darkness.


Questions, Goals, Secrets
 


 



Further Notes: Hjalmar Nilsson's background story takes place in Gracklstugh, in the Underdark of Faerun. This is just an example of how far he is willing to go in his search for new jobs, and places like Gracklstugh can easily be subbed for any large city in your amazingly detailed and natural-looking world.

Wow... a lot to catch up with.

@Gotha: Dwarves or Elvish is appropriate, even Quaron (Tiefling specific language).

@J2B: Arcane Archer for UA, yes. Half-Elf variant from Sword Coast book? Yes. Custom feat, no. Sorry I just won't have the time to wrap my head around that to make sure it doesn't impact things too greatly.

@Digorig: As @Andrewmeda has said, please feel free to submit an application. Prior play experience with 5e is not required, as long as you're learning and have the materials to learn, I'm ok with that.

Well, About the feat, you will have plenty of time to consider it. I said I will use that feat at level 4. If now I can choose crossbow expert feat instead. I read I can use a improvised weapon and I wonder I can use a bow as an improvised weapon (I think the club table will fill the description of a bow as improvised weapon although the the club doesn't have the finesse property!:P

I will try to post my Character sheet at the end of the day!:P

@Sylivis: ultra-rare and unlikely, BUT, results of each groups actions can be seen by the other.

Thank you. I shall do so. It seems that several others actually have a PC Sheet done. Did you want that before approvals?
