DM, can you give us a description or perhaps a map of the region around Taro Town? An perhaps of the eastern portion of the Herald Kingdom as well?. I'm trying to figure out a likely place where my PC and his Mother may of came from. I can make something up if you prefer. I was thinking perhaps from a vast forest just to the northeast of said Kingdom. Across a great river that is the Kingdom's eastern border

Does Taro Town indeed lay within the outer chamber of a vast cavern around a central lake/pond as the picture you have chosen, suggests?

I hope my mention of Taro Town having a six year public school and a militia in my PC's still unfinished Backstory. Is not to much of a stretch. I figured it was a good way of explaining how the PCs may know another one another. Both for those who have lived most their lives in and around Taro Town. As well as those who have only lived there a few years or less. Or at least how he knows the other PCs. As he himself does not spend to much actual time in Taro Town itself. An only over night during the various annually held festivals and the like.

Taro town rests at the foot of a small mountain range. The central part of the town, where most residences are, exists around a small lake fed by a waterfall that comes from the mountain. There are also plains on the outside of the town's edges, where most of the town's food production is done.

I can try to put together a map. Hopefully in the next day or so... it probably won't be fancy though.

That would actually be very helpful even if it isn't a work of art. Some places you have named would certainly help us give a little bit more detail to certain character bonds and such.

Also, thanks to this application process I learned that you can use .gifs for your character sheet! I am so stoked lol.

It is far from personal Alatere! Rivezran is quite leery among the more "charismatic" types due to the nature of his own people. While Jack likely never did anything to him (unless you would like to be one of my three known staples that perhaps gives a little flavor to the uneasiness), he tends to avoid shenanigans before they have a chance to start.

Don’t worry about it it’s fine, sometimes a negative reaction can be more fun to play than a positive one. Let me finish the main body of my application then we can work something out.

Don't be stressed about that. Antagonistic relationships that come good through shared peril can be some of the most interesting and rewarding in RPGs. It's all about the arc, baby!

So I was thinking of adding a librarian NPC if everybody here (particularly our DM) is okay with that?

I'd be up for a link with ya boy too once you're done. Jack and Annabelle both seem to be troublemakers/rule breakers. Jack seems a bit more lighthearted than Annabelle but i'm SURE they must have got in trouble together on at least one occasion! Also she'd be well up for absolutely shameless flirting (even if it goes nowhere, i'll let that be your choice )

Arjhan spent a lot of time in the library as well.

Totally agree with you there. Sounds like a good opportunity for some character growth.

Haha I love it. I can just imagine Jack trying to act as a wingman for a stuttering Trevor... Jack’s advice also might not be the best in the world and that could be rather entertaining...

Sounds great. We do seem to be the rule breakers so far. I haven’t decided yet but Jack might be mostly all talk. He might be in for a big surprise if things go a little too well with Annabelle.


Looks like I could be really busy with this game even before the selection process!
