You're more than welcome to follow along. If you ever have any thoughts about the game, I'd be happy to hear them too.

But know that while the reputation of the Drow is better than what it was back in the 13th Century (thank you, Drizzt), it's not great at the end of the 15th. You'll have a harder time in-game making the yokels comfortable. But it's unlikely that the whole town will come after you with pitchforks (although it's possible, depending on what's going on -- almost everything is possible) .

I am hesitant about one thing though. I'm not so sure Bard is the correct class to represent Sune as I see her in mortal form. I was thinking Sorcerer, or Warlock perhaps. Maybe... Wild magic for Sorcerer if she gets to 3rd level, and Celestial for Warlock?
Thoughts?
You know when your own app is complete, not me. It looks fine to me. The only real question I have is this: how is her second secret a secret and not a flaw?

As for your class problem, it's not really my place to intervene. In your mind, what makes Sorcerer more apt than Bard?

As for the reason, it's because it'd be a great fit for Nephtys. These Monks are empowered by the death of others, can terrify people with their mere presence, and can kill with a touch. Those powers seem really appropriate for a Goddess of Death.
They do seem especially apt for Nephthys, don't they? Yup, I'll allow it. Just make sure to include a version of that reasoning in your Race and Class section.

I find your reasons for choosing Air Genasi more than acceptable. I'm less sure about the race itself, as I can see some rampant abuse with some of those abilities. I'll allow it, but I just want you to know that I might have to nerf some of them depending on how the game progresses. Levitate can be a super-powerful spell, but it's far less concerning than being able to hold your breath indefinitely. We might have to change that to 'ten minutes' or something. But I'll allow it and, if you're accepted, we'll see how it plays out in-game. Does that work for you?

Given that you're character's personality has changed so much in his re-birth, I'd suggest a god with whom he used to be close. Unfortunately, my first three thoughts were Bane, Cyric, and Shar -- and I specifically asked you not to choose those three. Maybe find someone else who was in on one of Mask's pre-Death schemes, hurt by it, and now wants particular revenge?

Great! Looks good.



For Everybody: Please do tell me when your characters are done. If after a day or two, you don't see that the chart on the front page has been updated, please remind me. Thank you!

Oh that's fine. If you'd like we can replace levitate with using Gust once per long rest and hold breath for ten mins per short rest?

ApplicationName: Eilistraee
Race/Class: Drow Bard (College of Swords)

Traits: - I judge people by their actions, not thier words.
- I have a lesson for every situation, drawn from observing nature.
- I change my mood as quickly as I change keys in a song.

Bond: I am a shepard of my people, guiding the list to the light of the Surface.

Ideals: It is for our actions we are feared, and it will be by our actions we are forgiven. Give to those in need of aid, and free those who are enslaved either by shackles or by dogma.

Flaws: The Lost must be given the chance to come to the Surface, even in the heat of battle. It is not thier fault they have been forced to live in a web of lies.

Answer: Wouldn't a flaw qualify as a secret even she doesn't know about herself? If not, I'm just not grasping what a secret about herself would be that she doesn't know about.

Answer: Heh... in my mind I can flip that and say the same about Bard vs. Sorcerer. Or even Warlock for that matter. The reason I thought Bard was appropriate initially was for the definite Beauty/charm that would go along with some spell use.
I think I'll stick with it.

Drachenspirit. Some examples of a secret she wouldn't know about herself would be something like:

Having a sibling she wasn't told about
Perhaps something like, she always called sea gulls, water chickens and never knew there was a different name for them.
Or even, when she was originally made/created/came into being, she has a birthright unknown to her.

If I were superstitious, I wouldn't reply to your post numberd "666."

Ah. So... if I went with, "One of her most trusted allies is the reason she "fell from her immortal" status and is in human form", that would work. Gotcha.

Ha! I didn't even realize that. *snickers*
And yea, I mean, I see that as a definite example of a secret she wouldn't be aware of.

I will draw inspiration from Discworld pantheon. I'm about 1/3 into re-reading the books, and I keep thinking... Om would fit this!

App to follow presently.

Om
right-aligned image


Name: Om

Race and Class: Tortle Warlock. Despite what people think, gods also have a (very twisted) sense of humor. So instead of casting Om down as the form his worshipers imagined him - a great white bull, whoever was responsible for this mess thought it'd be funny to see Om humbled by reincarnating him into an avatar of a measly, ugly turtle. They were merciful enough to allow some of his former powers to seep into this clumsy body. Mercy came as a price though, as his Patron turned out to be one of his rivals.

Traits:
- I am fairly lazy and I expect others to do the heavy lifting.
- I . . . speak . . . slowly . . . when talking . . . to idiots, . . . which . . . almost . . . everyone . . . is . . . compared . . .to me.
- I tend to shoot first and ask questions later.

Bond: I will return to my former glory and exact vengeance on my current Patron.

Ideal: My Patron is a twisted master. For now. He trickles down power to me in exchange for various menial or demeaning tasks which he thinks will teach me a lesson of humility. I only see them as a means to an end.

Flaw:
- I speak without really thinking through my words, invariably insulting others.
- I still treat mortals like subject and often forget I am weak and most often than not powerless.

Personality: Om can find a silver lining in any situation, as long as it serves his purposes. Being quite egocentric, he's having a hard time making acquaintances, let alone friends. However, once you get under his skin shell, he'll prove quite the loyal companion.

Appearance: Having been spoiled with the finest drinks and food as a god, Om finds it hard to adapt to a body that craves lettuce, out of all things! And this cumbersome shell - how will that help with virgin sacrifices?! As if there aren't enough reasons to be grumpy already! He did his best to accessorize himself, but options are limited for this unwieldy body. A ragged cloth draped across his waste should suffice to hide his... Om didn't even knew if he had anything to hide, at this point! But appearances count. And a makeshift sling held his meager belongings across his back.

Secret: I take my believers for granted and I am indifferent to their prayers.

Secret #2 The reason of being cast from the pantheon is my Patron himself. His machinations lead to my demise.

People:
- Brutha, the only true Om believer left in my flock, who keeps my spirit alive.
- Vorbis, grand Exquisitor of the Quisition, the martial enforcer of the Omnian creed.
- Didactylos, keeper oft he Great Omnian Library.
- Libertina, Goddess of the Sea, saved Om in his current mortal form in exchange of an unnamed favor.

Backstory: Om started as a faint pinch of ego, and as he accumulated belief he became more powerful and vengeful. After conquering and smiting his opposition's flock of believers he became the most powerful god in the area. Eventually the rituals and priesthood became the true focus of belief, leaving the god withering away within the shell of a religion. By the time he realized this, he was left with his only true believer, Brutha. No other voice to carry his commandments. No other medium to manifest his powers. No other litany heard except his prayers. This was his first lesson in humility.

Bonus Background: The memory of The Time of Troubles was hazy at best of Om. He remember nonchalantly playing with people's destinies for fun, with other Gods. He remembered the echoes of his flock's prayers growing fainter but paying them no heed. He remembered many rivals and few friends. Memory tends to pay tricks on you when your whole daily focus seems to be finding the next head of lettuce...

RP Sample: Om and Blind Io were sitting at a table on which there was a very life-like representation of Faerun, down to the finest details. One might even think that was Faerun, and not a mere scale model. He was engaged in a game of Fate concerning several of his worshipers who somehow got embroiled in a political plot to kill one of Io's high priests. The game was fun, he didn't cared about the immediate effects of his actions on the board. Io, on the other hand, seemed a lot more invested. At one point, the plotters came within inches of assassinating the priest, and that's when Io snapped and blasted Om across the room with a thunderous burst of lightning. He was sure Om was somehow cheating. And Om was sure he hid the 5th dice really well in his sleeve, though! Sure enough, a brawl ensued, one that only Fortuna broke up, with a gentle tap on Om's shoulder. The extra loaded die somehow dislodged from its hiding place and rolled defiantly up to Io's sandal, landing on 13 (on a 6-faced die). The accusing stare of everyone present is the last thing Om remembered before finding himself hunched down over a bowl of lettuce with a terrible headache and an even worse urge to talk reaaaaaally slow.

Bonus RP: Sorry mate, haven't been on the forums long enough.

Player goals for this campaign: Have fun, roleplay a headstrong character with a race I've never played before, find out what Om really did to be outcast (gods feud all the time without any real consequence except perhaps a rain of toads here and there), get back in the game (a series of unfortunate real life evens had me abruptly vanish from RPGX), oh and did I mention have fun?



Application hopefully complete. Sorry for the black & white picture, you'd be surprised how few hits you get if you search for Tortle Warlock!

UPDATE
Thanks to MeredithS, replaced the b/w image with a colour variant.

Oh man that's cool @Vokub!

@MeredithS. My app should be complete! I think Baal would be a pretty big feud considering Mask helped kill the friggin' Lord of Murder. XD If you have an questions or recommended changes, I'm all ears!
