Secondly a few questions. You mentioned we should ask about 3p classes.

I'm playing with the idea for a Warlord with the Bushi ACF. Is that something you'd be willing to allow?
I'd also like to chime in on that. Are the Path of War classes acceptable or not?

I mean, depends on which class. Im not familiar with PoW so if i feel its too strong, i hold the right to ask you tone it down, even during play, when its in action

Unchained classes are fine

Also, @Angel I looked it over. You can go Warlord

Name: Nyira Addellyph

Race: Half-Elf

Class: Warlord (Bushi)

Alignment: Chaotic - Good

Description: Standing at 5', Nyira was ever the shorter among the elves she grew up around. Nowadays, her figure is something that can easily be described as function over form, not attractive in it's conformity to what many an artist would sculpt to be the image of a goddess of fertility. For if hers would be the silhouette of a divine being, then it would be that of a goddess of war. A valkyrie, whose every muscle and tendon is chiselled with deadly purpose. A beauty honed with ceaseless efforts, that comes to fruition in the flow of her movements only in the zenith of battle, when decisivenes and experience tilt the balance on the razor's edge between life and death.

Though even when her sword is at peace, her face seems to carry a sort of ceaseless determination. In contrast, a tinge of playfulness, like a predator who has already seen ten moves ahead of it prey, never leavers her dark amber eyes. Regardless her hight, she always seems to be able to look at someone, as if she were standing taller.

Nyira is dressed in an explorer's outfit and carries a backpack. Her garments in brown to red and dark to black green cover the Lamellar armor underneath and almost fully blur out the more alluring subtitles of her features. The scabbard of a strange sword can be found at her side, and if she were to use the cowl of her cloak one may be hard pressed to distinguish her race. For as long as people don’t notice the pointy ears, which would normally hold the wild strands of the dark-brown shoulder-length hair away from the young features of her face, she can easily pass for a human.


Traits: Chance Encounter, Psychoportive Talent, Unorthodox Method

Drawback: Headstrong

Backstory: Nyira's earliest memories are from the grand elven court she grew up in. Her family name wasn't one that matched any of the lords, that she was told never to raise her eyes towards, nor was it that of any of the elven retainers or servants, who busied themselves with tasks, ranging from cleaning, to oversight and maintenance of the army. Ever the runt of the litter, shorter, younger and in most ways not measuring up to elven standards, she was still found a purpose. It was perhaps her struggle to fit in anywhere at all, or possibly, that the budding interests of a mare child into her origins were starting to stir up questions, that someone didn't want answered, that lead to her being given the opportunity to pour some of that seemingly boundless energy which she exuded into physical training. So she was formerly accepted into the newly reestablished martial academy of one of the High Lord's generals.

Nyira spent many years, in what she considered dull repetition and had more than just the occasional verbal joust with her would be master. Her reluctance to adhere to the traditions her mentor was almost desperate to pass onto her more than once lead her to leave the safety of the High Lord's sizeable estate grounds, convinced yet again to have outstripped her curriculum. In her eagerness she even once found herself far beyond the safety border, heading deeper towards the Worldwound. A fatal mistake, were it not for the intervention of a mysterious woman, who's name Nyira never got the chance to ask. The young half-elf couldn't however help but note the symbol of Desna her saviour was clutching, as if for dear life. It was almost like the lady luck herself was giving Nyira a passing nod through the whole ordeal, up to the very point where the two happened upon the border patrol that would ultimately take her back to the place she had been so eager to escape. Perhaps it was luck that saved her that day, a divine tempering of the dice, or maybe it was the inspiring skill with which the worried woman handled every hurdle the world threw their way that day. Nonetheless one thing was for certain, her saviour was the one of the two, who was prepared and proactive that day…

As troublesome a student as Nyira was, it was never the less strange how she never got straight up kicked out of the fairly elitist martial dojo the general ran, be it for her misconduct, or blatant disrespect of hierarchy and traditions. Regardless of how many times she ran away, or in what manner she came, or was brought back. If anything her master was the most forgiving of her when she was pulling away and the strictest when she was cooperating...

Elves are however creatures of patience and as for Nyira, as the years rolled by, she got ever further ahead of her peers. Maybe it was due to a an innate drive elves seemed to have the luxury of not needing to hone, or perhaps it was something that was hers alone. It was however a matter of a difference in opinion, when a final fight with her master lead to her leaving the estate and setting off for good. For all the words that were exchanged that day, she simply felt like she was stagnating, or rather slowly but surely settling to move in place. It wasn't therefore a journey to prove something, that she set out on, but rather one simply to be. Unrestricted by other's notions of propriety, she intended to grasp the reigns of her destiny and seize the infinite possibilities that the world had to offer her. This time she knew she was prepared.

...

First thing's first then… - thought the young half-elf as she looked up at the gates of Kenabres, a smile creeping slowly across her face and the spark in her eyes dancing with excitement - …what did that old geezer use to say? One needs at least a fifty years to hone the skills that being part of the crusade necessitates?

He's probably never met a living creature outside the comfort of that estate.

Not even his greatest student yet.

Name: Lisla Alttair

Race: Human

Class: Magus

Alignment: Lawful Good

Description: Lisla is a woman with light brown hair and eyes, and a head shorter than most other women with angular features that would almost make her appear to be a short elf. She has small scars consisting of burns and scratches on her hands.

Traits: Riftwarden Orphan, Bladed Magic

Drawback: Overprotective

Backstory: Lisla was raised by her aunt and uncle, her godparents really (a sickly dwarf and a crusader missing her left arm and leg), and grew up on their stories. From her uncle she hear stories of what the land was like before the Worldwound, and from her aunt she heard stories of the grueling wartime exhaustion of the Fourth Crusade. And from both of them she heard tales of her parents, Riftwardens fighting against the demons of the Worldwound.

No one knows of her parents fate however, disappearing a month after her own birth. Lisla does not dare hope that they are alive, knowing that the Worldwound and the demons who inhabited it take all without mercy. But she knows, in her heart, that whoever is responsible for her parents disappearance is still alive, and that they're destined to meet one day.

Growing up on stories of righteous crusaders and her Riftwarden parents left her confused for most of her childhood, unsure of what she wanted to be growing up. Lisla wanted to go in and lead charges against the demons and fight for righteousness in the crusades, but she could feel arcane power coursing through her veins and had heard tales of what her parents had done before their disappearance. As she grew out of her youth she decided to use both, wield a sword in one hand and magic in the other and started experimenting with such forms of combat. The results of many of these experiments can still be seen on her hands, but she kept practicing and eventually started to strike a balance between the arcane forces that she wielded and the material equipment that she carried with her.

Eventually she caught the attention of a bard who had spent much of his life fighting for the crusade.

Valentene was inspiring, smart and strong, he was everything Lisla needed in a mentor and more. She learn fencing, academic pursuits, appreciation for art and literature. But perhaps the most important thing she learned from Valentene was philosophy, particularly Valentene's philosophy.

Valentene understood that the life of the common crusader was often too short and believe that the efforts of romantic pursuits and the preservation of one's chasity for the sake of marriage was often a waste of time, do he often held many romantic relationships at one time. This gave him the reputation of being lecherous, however Lisla understood the deeper meaning of what Valentene said. It is not to pursue romance for the sake of carnal desire, but rather to give love openly and freely with little concern for ideals such as marriage and preservation. Understanding that this would often lead it to heartbreak in a place such as the Worldwound.

Lisla never found out what happened to him, as he just disappeared one day and never showed up again. However she took his lessons to heart and never forgot the bard.

Definitely interested.

ApplicationName: Linissa

Race: Gathlain

Class: Unchained Rogue/Swashbuckler (Flying Blade archetype); intending to start with 3 levels of URogue, then progress as Swashbuckler.

Alignment: Chaotic Good

Description: At first glance, Lin might be mistaken for a human child or possibly a halfling, but only at first glance; the second glance would be for the vine and leaf wings growing out of the backs of her shoulders. her hair would be green like her eyes, but for the unfortunate effects of decades of living in or near the worldwound which have faded it to a mottled yellow-brown. On closer inspection, much of her skin seems to have a mottled texture closer to that of tree bark than that of skin.

She generally dresses in simple clothing, favoring plant fibers when she can get them, and incorporates bits of greenery whenever possible.

Personality: Lin is... surprisingly grounded for a winged fey. While she maintains the mercurial movements and quick temper of her heritage, she rarely laughs or sings, and carries with her an intensity that is almost frightening.

Traits: Campaign Trait: Chance Encounter, Scholar of the Great Beyond, Demon Slayer

Drawback: Unlearned

Backstory: Linissa can just barely remember a time when the world was not demons and darkness and evil. A time when she opened her eyes in the fey court in the woods in southeastern Sarkoris, frolicking in the trees or peeking at the occasional human who ventured into the forest. Then came the death of Aroden, and the opening of the Worldwound.

For some time, the fey court was able to avoid the notice of the demon armies - more focused on their war with the native human cities and then with the Mendevian crusades - through their fey magic and trickery. Many of the fey fled back to the First World, but as the influence of the Abyss grew, those ways became harder and harder to use, until they closed entirely. Those left behind fortified their forest home and used every trick at their disposal to avoid extermination - the entire woods became a fortress of illusions, traps, and trickery. But with the demons contained by the wardstones, their magics could not protect them forever.

Eventually, the demons broke through the defenses and fell upon the court, and the surviving fey severed their ties to the land that had sheltered them for so many centuries, and fled east, hoping to find safety in the lands beyond the wardstone boundary.

The flight was a nightmare; demons swooping down to pick off fey one by one; corruption and disease on all sides, perverting that which the fey had so long nurtured against them. As their numbers dwindled, eventually the survivng fey warriors chose to make a final stand against their pursuers, hoping to give the younger fey without the battle skill to stand against the demons the chance to flee. Lin was in that group, that ran from the battle, the sounds of her friends and family screaming and dying behind her fading as she flew as fast as her wings could carry her.

Even then, it's unlikely she would have escaped the worldwound if she hadn't been found by a human woman; a woman who helped her sneak past the patrols of demons and cultists and make her way to safety in the city of Kenabres.

For nearly a decade now, Lin has lived in Kenabres, mostly keeping to herself in the small section of parks in the gate district. She's struck up friendships with some of the city's street folk, and learned a few tricks from them, but she fights a battle in her own mind constantly - her nature screams at her to continue fleeing, to go far away from this pit of horror and corruption, but after over a century, she cannot bring herself to abandon the soil that gave her life, however tainted it might have become, or the friends and family who died so that she could reach safety. With the announcement of the fifth crusade, she has a decision to make: does she continue hiding and letting others fight the evil that destroyed her home, or does she stand up and fight?

Thank you everyone who submitted an application. This was a very difficult decision but I came down to these 4 early so I decided to start the game sooner than expected. You all did great with your characters and I wish you luck with finding other games.
