Name: Hi, my name is…

Race and Class: Unlike mortals, you weren't born to certain parents and you didn't train in a certain discipline. So tell me why your godhood manifested in this particular race, with these (very) particular (set of) skills.

Trait: Please give me at least two, and something more than what your Forgotten Realms wiki or the PHB would tell me
Bond: What are you most attached to in your divine existence?
Ideal: Give me a sentence or two which describe your portfolio and/or domain
Flaw: What does your character overlook? What are your character’s personal weaknesses? Please give me at least two.

Personality: Try to combine and reword your background traits into one or two paragraphs that describe your character.
Appearance: Describe how your character looks and feels in his new mortal body. A picture is acceptable and even welcome, but neither necessary nor sufficient.

Secret: Gods have secrets. Tell me one of yours.
Secret #2 Other people keep secrets, even from gods. Tell me a secret that is about you but that you do not know.
People: List at least three mortals and at least one other god with whom you have a relationship.

Backstory: Describe for me one moral quandary that your character solved in his long life.
Bonus Background: What were you doing during the first Avatar Crisis (The Time of Troubles)?

RP Sample: Choose an evil god of equal or lower rank than you with whom you are in a feud. Describe the interaction with him that sparked that feud. (Please do not choose Cyric, Bane, or Shar.)
Bonus RP: If you want and you can, please link to an actual piece of PR from another game.

Player goals for this campaign: What are you looking for in this campaign? This will have absolutely no (zero, zip) impact on whether you are chosen. I’m just curious.

Inspiration has fled, unfortunately. I'll have to withdraw my application.

Sorry to hear that, but thank you for telling me. Best of luck with everything in the future.

I've seen those campaigns here too. ;-)

I'm not feeling that confident about the originality or brilliance of my concept either. If you have the time and inclination to provide feedback to strengthen it, I'd love it too but it's certainly not something I want to push you on.

You're welcome.


For Everyone: Since two people have asked now, I might as well put it out to everyone. If you want my reactions to your application so far, please ask and I'll be happy to provide.

I do feel a bit uncomfortable giving this offer out, though. Applications are dedications enough for most people, and having feedback doubles that attachment and effort when one goes to edit. That's not fair. Even if no one else posts, I will have eleven applications at the end. I can only take five, maybe, maybe six. That means about half of you won't get in, no matter how spot-on these applications are (and many of them are).

I feel rather bad about that, and I don't want to encourage you to dedicate yourselves more to my own idiosyncratic brand of judgment just to then slap you down and laugh at you (not that I would do either). Having said that, if you want my reactions, I shall give them to you. Just please know that getting a reaction won't (on its own) increase your chance, nor will not wanting one make me think you're less dedicated than those who did get one.

Again, thank you all for applying.

@LinguaManiac

That's a very generous offer (far more than you have any need to make) and one that I'm tempted to take you up on. However, I figure my application either stands on its own or it doesn't and I don't want to ask you to put in work on my application. So thank you for the offer but I'll leave Bahamut be unless I decide to do some further edits independently.

I am quite happy with the state of my app - if feedback would be required I'd feel compelled to somehow shoehorn my concept into the DM's vision, and that will definitely make the whole process moot.

What a great gesture LinguaManiac. It's a reflection of a good DM, one who takes the time to work with us mere applicants and not true players (yet or likewise). That being said, unless there's an enormous conflict with how my character fits in your world, I shall leave her as is.

This looks like a blast. I'm going to try to throw an app together tomorrow. When is the deadline for apps?

Hats off to you LinguaManiac. Seeing past the words and into the heart of what people are really writing is often overlooked in the application process. We are sharing our stories and parts of ourselves here, and your respect for that is highly commendable.
Thanks.
And as others have said, I too, will leave my app as is.

My app can be marked complete. Your feedback has given me much food for thought, but I didn't end up changing much really (at least in the app itself).

If we play a cleric, who are we a cleric of? Ourselves? Or are we a cleric of another god, thus making ourselves subservient to them?

How do backgrounds skills work? IE, if I'm playing Liera, then might I declare I'm taking the charlatan background, granting me Deception and Sleight of hand?
