I don't mind about the librarian. That's what that part of the application is for.

I have some ideas for links between characters. Please let me know what you'all think.

Possible character Links:
JasonTheSwift: As a "fellow paladin", I think it might be natural for Kerri and Ander to know each other. Perhaps they could be friendly rivals? They could debate religious philosophy and/or compete with each other - either by sparring or generally trying to out-perform the other.

Binnford: It seems to me that Wuuni and Kerri might be drawn to each other. Kerri has big dreams and (undefined) goals and an outgoing personality. Wuuni is Kerri's near opposite - in that she's reserved and even-keeled. They're a good complement and balance for each other. Kerri's the crazy friend; Wuuni is the sensible one.

Valanor: Kerri and Valanor might certainly have bumped into each other while Kerri was exploring the wilds. I imagine that Kerri might seem a bit too reckless in her explorations for the Elf. But that's for you to decide, of course.

JaredSyn: Kerri would be drawn to Arjhan because he's clearly an extra-planar being "just like her" - or at least shares that aspect of their birth.

ColorsOfTheHeart: A good listener? Calm and thoughtful? Kerri could use somebody like that in her life. She has big ideas and would love to have somebody to tell all about them.

I can try to put together a map. Hopefully in the next day or so... it probably won't be fancy though.
No, it need not be fancy. So how far would the closest forestland be from town?

I like what I'm seeing with the applications thus far. The fact that a lot of you are giving your character's impressions on ALL of the other applicants is really nice and tells me more about your characters than you can know. I look forward to seeing the applications that aren't quite finished start to take root.

I have a real life D&D game today, but if I find the time, I'll work on a rudimentary map and add it to my first post sometime either today or tomorrow. I'd also like to do feedback in the next couple days for the current list of applicants. One of the other games I applied to asked extra questions during the feedback process -- and I'll probably do something similar, because I really liked the idea -- So look forward to that.

Within five miles. Easily less than a day's travel from the town itself, if you want dense forest. There's woodland along the bottom of the mountain, along the trails within the town, but it's generally not great for hunting. Being so close to the town has driven off most wildlife.

@girlplay

Thank you for fleshing out violet further. I'd still like to use her a bit myself for Rivezran's NPC links, and even your character if you'd have it. If not I apologize, my last time checking was buried in the table post.

I may reach out to some of you more directly - seems the Enumerator isn't striking a lot of the simpler connections right out of the gate.

Okay... A basic map of the Eastern Herald Kingdom is up -- It's only a small part of the whole country, but it gives you a basic idea of the surrounding geography I hope.

Keep in mind, I'm not a cartographer, or a geologist, and this is a fantasy world so I don't really care if the landscape strictly makes sense. :P

That’s pretty good for something hastily thrown together.

@girlplay, so are you planning on multiclassing to Paladin ? As far as the character link it seems interesting.

InfamousDasher and I have updated our applications with a requested RP sample - and of course her talented self has started a doodle as well. Might have to hire her.

I hope Rivezran's suffering brings others as much joy as it brought us lol.

Application
Name: Lumin
Age: 16
Class: Sorcerer (Wild Magic)
Race: Scourge Aasimar
Background: Urchin: Abandoned by his mother at a young age. Now too old to live in the orphanage. A street person.
Personality:
Lumin is bright and charismatic. He is eager to befriend those who are open to him. He is well liked in the circles that he frequents. But he is often misunderstood by strangers. He distrusts power and authority. He is resentful of privileged people. And when someone has made him an enemy, he can be ruthless.

Lumin can be quite industrious. He finds work around town regularly. He's not really strong enough for physical labor. But he's eager to be a gopher, cleaner, or helper of any kind. He's acquired a number of acquaintances through this work.
Backstory:
Lumin knows very little about his parents. Until recently, his whole life he was in an orphanage. Once at a carnival an old woman claiming to be a "seer" told him a tale about his mother.

According to the seer, Lumin's mother was a peasant girl who stumbled upon a fey princess, chained to a tree near the ruins. She freed the princess. Her reward for this feat was to be granted three wishes. She wished to be beautiful. She wished to be as rich as the richest merchant in her town. Then feeling guilty about her vanity and greed, she wished for a child that would bring light into this dark world. In several months, she indeed bore a beautiful child. But the boy possessed powerful and uncontrolled magic. The young woman came to believe that the fey princess had tricked her, and that the child was some sort of curse. So she abandoned the boy to an orphanage, and took her wealth to far away Emeril.

Lumin doesn't know if this story his true, but he does possess uncontrolled magic.
Appearance:
Lumin is a very young looking man. His appearance is almost child-like. He is frail and thin. But his features are perfect. He has the face of an angel.

Three NPCs:
Sister Dawn: Dawn is a volunteer teacher at the orphanage where Lumin grew up. She works there for free out of devotion to her deity. She is getting to be elderly now. She still looks out for Lumin. When she can afford it, she will pay him to do errands for herself or for the orphanage.

Karsk: Karsk is an older boy from the orphanage. A half-orc. He used to pick on Lumin mercilessly. One day Lumin had mastered a spell, to throw rays of magical ice from his fingers. When Karsk picked a fight with him, Lumin responded with his new found ability. Not knowing how powerful this could be, he nearly killed Karsk. If not for Sister Dawn's help, it would have been tragedy. Karsk has been out of the orphanage for three years now. No one knows where he is.

Rose Kolra: Rose is the daughter of a local inn keeper. She will occasionally hire Lumin to do work for the inn, like cleaning the stables. He thinks she has taken a liking to him, but he is afraid to approach her.

Links to characters:
Wuuni: Lumin will occasionally work for the blacksmith, and in doing so, he has met Wuuni.
Jack Fletcher: Doing odd jobs around town to survive, Lumin has met many people. Jack is one of his favorites. He's fascinated by the fact that Jack knows so many interesting adults, and has so many amazing tales of adventure. Although Jack makes him feel a bit inferior.
Arjhan Fireborn: Lumin has heard rumors of a man working at the library who has similar magical abilities. He has gone to the library a few times to try to meet this man. But Lumin doesn't really know what to do with himself at a library, and he's been mostly too afraid to try to engage Arjhan in conversation.
Friar Bertram Bellows: When work is scarce, Lumin will seek out food and shelter from Granny Bellow's House. He prefers this place because he knows he won't be pressured by preaching, as sometimes happens at other shelters. He once went to Friar Bertram for healing when he accidentally burned himself trying to learn a spell.
Rivezran Tobiadoreus:One day the mayor hired Lumin to do some odd jobs in a city office. There was a peculiar man who job seemed to be to ask uncomfortable questions, for a purpose that Lumin can not quite grasp. This man seemed to be very nervous about letting Lumin do even the simplest job. He eventually ordered the boy to leave the job early, before it was really finished. Seems that the man was nervous about Lumin's reputation for magical accidents. Anyway, Lumin disliked the man. He asks embarrassing questions. He would think to himself, but not say, Don't ask me about my mom, or my dad, or my home. I don't have any of those things.

Heads up that I have written links to Jack Fletcher, Arjhan Fireborn, Friar Bertram, and Wuuni to my application. Please let me know if these makes sense to you all. I am willing to alter them.
