Name: Dawnlord Dirk Ambercrown, itinerant priest of Lathander

Race: Human

Class: Cleric (Life Domain)

Personality: Dirk strives to be an inspiration to others. He is reflective and quietly caring. When things need to be done the cleric sometimes is a bit gruff. Dirk can be creative when he needs to be. Normally, he can keep his emotions in check, but when he sees undead he gets angry to the point of almost raging. Sometimes he'll talk to his mother as if she was still alive. Whether he gets an answer, only Dirk knows.

Appearance: At five foot eight and weighing two hundred twelve pounds, Dirk is a brute of a man. His hair is brown as is his eyes. Dirk has a fair complexion with rosy cheeks. He prefers colors of gold, red and white, Lathander's favored colors. Dirk normally wears his vestments over his armor.

Backstory: Where his parents, Roland and Marta, originally hailed from Dirk has no recollection, his first memories being of Khedell. They were traders of fine wood, making a living selling their goods to Waterdhavian carpenters. Dirk always travelled with them as there was no extended family in the thorpe they hailed as home.

In his eighth year, the wagon train that Dirk was traveling in was attacked by a wizard leading undead brigands. Before going to fight, his parents hid him in a secret compartment of the wagon. Dirk was afraid, so scared that it took him three days to exit the wagon. He found his parents and the other half dozen merchants all dead. The lad stayed by his mother's side.

Dirk would have died of thirst had it not been for a priest wandering by. Taking stock of the situation the priest, Grimgor, took charge of the boy. Dirk would spend the rest of his childhood and into his late teen learning so he could be anointed into the clerical order. On his 19th naming day, the young man was made a priest of Lathander and the right to be called 'Dawnlord'.

Over the next few years, Dirk made friends with two adventurers, a halfling named Brandeon and a human named Lyra. Slowly but surely, the two fed the young cleric with the teachings of the Lord's Alliance. Dirk saw the mission of the betterment and protection of its member settlements as a good thing. Eventually he joined as an agent of the faction.

Lyra, a swordmage, taught Dirk the fundamentals of summoning a familiar and the spell Green Flame Blade. Due to his connection with Lathander the flame was not green as usual but gold, red and white strands. The cleric decided that this was a sign that his god approved of him dabbling in the arcane.

At the age of 26, the church elders decided that Dirk's calling was as itinerant rather than a rector of a set church. So it is that he found himself wandering the Sword Coast. Dirk did his best and mostly that was good enough. Lately he could be found in the Luskan Region, spreading the word of the Morninglord to the poor souls there.

What most in the church do not know is that Dirk carries a text describing the Risen Sun heresy. He was a diehard believer. In short, the heresy prophecies that Lathander would be fully unveiled as Amaunter. Dirk keeps the text secret except to the cleric, Nigel Greyjoy, who introduced him to the book. Fervently he prays every morning that this would be the day of the Risen Sun's return.

Background [Faction Agent (Lord's Alliance)]:
  • Personality Traits: The roads are open to me, I follow my feet and enjoy the journey that they take, like water filling a cup.
    I strive for a better me tomorrow, always improving both physically and spiritually through hard work.
  • Ideal: Avenger: I always seek to destroy evil, especially undead. It is my truest purpose.
  • Bond: I seek to preserve a sacred text that most of my fellow clerics consider heretical and seek to destroy.
  • Flaw: I'm an honest person and I can hardly lie to save my life.

Hometown: Born in Kheldell, a thorp on the northern brim of the Westwood in the foothills of the Sword Coast Spires. From the age of 8 raised by the clerics of Lathander at Morninglow Tower, Waterdeep.

Would you accept a Githyanki fighter? The player race is in Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes. He wouldn't have been born in Faerun since they are from the Astral Plane, but instead could have a longtime base of operations there.

Normally, I'd say no, but there's already a Fey kind Rabbit in the mix, so yes, the more the merrier.

Character Sheet

Character Name: Taren Zarichar, aka "Doctor Eldergrove"
Race: Tiefling
Class: Bard (College of Glamour)
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Description: Taren Zarichar is a tiefling male, 32 years of age, and a most conspicuous one at that. Of average height and lean build, he is not the most physically imposing individual, but can appear rather intimidating to those who have spent little time around beings with infernal blood. Large, curved horns sit atop Taren's head, growing amidst a thick mane of dark brown hair. He is tattooed with strange, blue markings (which he will eagerly talk about, given the opportunity) on his limbs, torso, face, and tail. Taren is ostentatious, among other things, and prefers expensive, exotic clothing. Lighter skinned than most other tieflings, his complexion is markedly more human, though there is little denying his hellish heritage.

Background: Charlatan
Trait 1: I have a joke for every occasion, especially occasions where humor is inappropriate.
Trait 2: I’m a born gambler who can’t resist taking a risk for a potential payoff.
Ideal: Independence. I am a free spirit—no one tells me what to do.
Bond: I keep my thoughts and discoveries in a journal. My journal is my legacy.
Flaw: I’m convinced that no one could ever fool me the way I fool others.

Personality:

Application

Name: Exidor

Race: Githyanki

Class: Fighter, Eldritch Knight

Appearance: Like all of his race, his frame seems thin and deceptively frail, belying his powerfully wiry muscles. He keeps his head shaved except for a small topknot and has a neatly trimmed goatee, and sports an impeccably waxed thin mustache hanging well below his face. He is among the taller members of his race, and his eyes are narrow and sharp.


Background: Soldier, Scout
Personality Trait 1: I’m always polite and respectful. (my note: Although in a deluded "Dwight Schrute" way)
Personality Trait 2: I’m full of inspiring and cautionary tales from my military experience relevant to almost every combat situation. (my note: ditto to my note above)
Ideal: Might. In life as in war, the stronger force wins.
Bond: Those who fight beside me are those worth dying for.
Flaw: I have little respect for anyone who is not a proven warrior.
Note: Although he was raised in a Lawful Evil martial society and it determined his alignment, his social instincts ended up countering the callous approach toward life that most Githyanki possess. So the evil part of his nature remains as an "end justifies the means" attitude and a degree of haughtiness toward those perceived as weak or foolish. But he cares about preserving the institutions of culture including those not of his own culture,and will fight to save them. He is also loyal to his companions and protective of anyone he considers under his care.

Backstory: Exidor was naturally one of the brightest of his cohort and although he focused on martial training, he showed some interest in arcane matters as well. After his rite of passage, he served as a spy and a scout ahead of Gith invasions. However, he became highly influenced by the cultures he observed and came to regret the destruction of their achievements (although still lacking in pity for the loss of the people themselves). He came to view the endless Gith war as pointless and his own Githyanki society as hopelessly inert. His dissatisfaction eventually led him to the shadowy Sha’sal Khou movement, where he works in secret to put an end to the Gith intra-racial war. Posing as a Githzerai warrior in hiding from assassins, he has been living in Luskan itself for some time, and has been providing service as a guardsman and providing other services to earn his keep and to win over the locals. But his true intention is to gather information on the landscape, peoples, and culture of the area, to identify assets that might one day serve to thwart a Githyanki incursion.

Deadline to submit a character is Midnight 5/26.

I will be choosing two characters to add to the group, one of which "will be" strong in healing spells/abilities. The other can be any, but a fighter type is probably a better fit (still a knockout character app will win me over every time)

The list of Applicants so far:
  1. Jrod's character, Arthur Korvos - a Sorcerer - Divine Soul / Warlock - Celestial
  2. Treslo Kresha's character - Jura Duhlome, a half-elven Ranger
  3. Shula's character - Dawnlord Dirk Ambercrown, a Human cleric of Lathandar
  4. thefeywild's character - Taren Zarichar, aka "Dr. Eldergrove", a Tiefling Bard
  5. Yoshimi's character - Exidor, a Githyanki Eldritch Knight Fighter
  6. BobManGM's character - Kal Dorian, a Human Cleric

Taren Zarichar's application is complete. None of the bonds from the Charlatan background really fit his personality or backstory, so I changed what I had selected initially to one from the Haunted One background. Let me know if this is okay.

A couple questions:
  1. Would you have any issue with Taren knowing an additional language—specifically Sylvan? I think with his backstory it would make sense that he knows the language of the fey, but no problem if that doesn't work for you.
  2. With the additional 50 gp, would I be able to purchase a mule and cart? I believe those amount to 23 gp. I'm wanting them as a method for transporting his sideshow from town to town.

Background changes are okay.

For knowing Sylvan, I'm okay with it as long as you provide some background as to when/how they learned the language.

If you really want the mule and cart, he'd have to be newly joining the group in Red Larch as the current group "flew" from Luskan to Red Larch. So, I'm okay with that I suppose.

You're the DM, so your call! My thought for learning Sylvan was that Taren learned the language during his time among the revelers of Hyrsam in the Feywild. As far as the mule and cart goes, I'm fine either way. If it makes sense to meet the party in Red Larch, I can roll with that. In your post, you mentioned RPing like we've always been with the party, and if they've flown to Red Larch I can just forgo the mule and cart. I didn't realize they were in an area where that might not make sense to have.

Yeah, easy for all to say the two new characters have always been with the group.
And... he can always purchase those in Red Larch.

I'm posting this like he's already in the game. I haven't even begun deep diving to chose yet.

Hoping You Still Have an Opening....

Afternoon,

I'm new to RPG Crossing, so if I've made a mistake, I apologize. I play and DM over on RPOL, but this is my first try here. I have not read anything on Forgotten Realms in a long time. If a general lack of knowledge is an issue, I'll bow out. Both risks, I know.

If I read this in the correct order, it seems you need a cleric. What about Kal Dorian, a cleric of Lliira? Thanks for reading.

Name: Kal Dorian
Race: Human
Class: Cleric

Appearance: Kal is a giant of a man, with the strength to match. His red hair and beard stand out and seem to turn a shade brighter when he laughs and smiles. Being a 'free spirit' he is always ready with a joke, a smile, a beer and a willingness to dance (which he does with a little skill).


Background: Acolyte
Personality Trait 1: I love a good insult, even one directed at me.
Personality Trait 2: Nobody stays angry with me or in my around me.
Ideal: Charity - I always try to help those in need, no matter what the personal cost.
Bond: I owe my life to the priestess that took me in when my parents died.
Flaw: I judge others harshly, and myself even more severely.

Backstory: Kal was left with Joybringers as an orphan. Why there, nobody knows. Nothing is known of his family and he has never worried about it. It seems to him, that if they made a decision to leave him that they were the ones that lose, not him. Raised in the temples, ballrooms, festivals and occasional bacchanal when he was old enough, he never looked back. He worked as whatever his 'sisters' or 'brothers' needed; waiter, groom, cook, host or courtesan. When of age and knowledge, he moved to the clergy easily and happily.

When he was 18, he followed Maira Margaret Henry, a senior in the order, off on an extended errand. They were to take missives and a small dowry to the south, and return with the groom (who was very young) for his nuptials. On the return trip, they were attacked by thieves on the road. Although they tried to avoid a fight, it was inevitable with the 'poor and hungry' men. Maira Margaret ordered him to ride with the boy to escape, and he did. They arrived safe, but Maira never made it back. Kal didn't blame the men, but himself. If he had stayed...she may have made it back.

After this, he picked up his things and started to travel. If he can bring a little joy to others, maybe it will repay his debt to Maira Margaret.
