@Geldar: rolling in the advertising thread is not allowed/frowned upon. There will be a thread available once the game threads are created.

@Phil
What level/starting xp?
Since humanoids book is allowed, are the other complete book of elves, come book of dwarves etc allowed?
If starting higher that 1st... is there a gp value to use for picking up magic items?

I like Ravenloft and look back at 2e with sentimentality, but the rose-colored glasses can still see THAC0 tables. Now there's a gothic horror!
I think I have some old books somewhere and might take this on, though. Thanks for the invite.

Application
right-aligned image
Name: Melandru

Race:Half-elven

Age:17

Class: Ranger w/ Justifier Kit

Background: Hailing from Nevuchar Springs, Mel is the daughter or a local elven woman and a human Mercenary Captain. Torn on how to raise their daughter - elven or human - Mel seemed to choose neither. Her father trained her how to fight and to fight well.
Her mother and her mother's family taught her some of the ways of the land around her. She melded these two areas of knowledge to become a type of warrior/bounty hunter of sorts, called a Justifier. She brings law and order - and justice by way of death most times - to them that need it most. Though she doesn't do what she does for the payment, she has gotten a name for herself - specifically for her sworn enemy of Ghouls and Ghasts.
She hates undead in general, but due to an encounter when she was young, Ghouls and ghasts hold a special place of hatred in her heart.

Why Play 2E AD&D?: Love it. Held out playing 2E, never getting into new WOTC versions until 5E about 18 months ago. Also, I have ran many 2E games over time, some here on RPGX, and one still active right now.

I'm a bit nervous about having forgotten all the 2E rules, but if you're all lenient, I'm in!

Application
right-aligned image

Name: Olinar Solune

Race/class: Elven Cleric of Serenrae, Undead Slayer kit (Book of Elves)

Background:
Trapped in Ravenloft, she lives with a small enclave of elves in Sithicus forest. They harrow Lord Soth and attempt to build positive relationships with the distrustful folk of neighboring villages.

Olinar's skills in healing and fervor for undead slaying has brought her enough reknown with locals to at least avoid a lynching with the suspicious humans. Her worship of the goddess of sun and healing matches perfectly the positive, vibrant personality of the young elf.

The priestess' time spent in Ravenloft has made her a grim combatant, though. She has vowed to scorch the land of the undead and let the sunlight burn back the Mists encroaching Ravenloft.

Why 2E?
The nostalgia! Will it live up to the sentiment? Will it play as well on PbP as in the magical times of youth?
We'll see, eh?
