Otherworlders: The terrans

Game NameOtherworlders: The terrans
Game SystemDnD 5e
ThemeIsekai 5e
FlavourLost in an unknown world full of danger.
Plot SummaryYou awaken to find yourself lying on a grassy hill at the edge of a forest. After taking stock of yourself you realize there are five other people with you, do you know them? You’re not sure as your memories are a bit fuzzy. After standing in the distance, you can see a dirt path or road. The sun is shining and although you’re not sure of the exact time you know it is morning. While looking around a small semi-transparent blue window pops up in front of you with a small chime. It reads ‘Welcome to the world of Chroma. Saying status will open your status menu to show all of your stats, skills, and abilities.’ After you finish reading it the window vanishes. Now is the time to decide on what to do, at least for now.

You have been transferred to another world, at first you don’t remember what is going on but soon it hits you like a ton of bricks, and you remember everything.



Characters and mechanicsYou were brought here through various means:
1) You were forced, summoned through a magic circle. (Choose two extra skills or one feat)
2) You ‘reincarnated’ after having died (Choose any race, age will be adult which is 16)
3) A portal opened in your room, and you chose to step through. (Choose 3 items to bring with you that were close at hand)
Unless you choose option 2 your race is human (not variant)

You start with no class, and at level 0. Choose 4 classes you would like and during the game your actions will cause you to become one of those classes.
Classes allowed- any official, just let me know where it’s from same with specializations. UA materials will be allowed on a case-by-case basis, and I reserve the right to change them as the game goes on.

Hp- Starting is 10 no con, after leveling it will be max plus con mod.

Stats- will be 14, 12, 12, 12, 10, 8. Once you gain a class it will come with stat increases.

Backgrounds- You don’t have one.

Items- you start with only cloths fitting your race (I.e Terrans will have modern cloths, other races will have medieval make cloths) Unless you chose option 3.

Number of players I seek: 6

Posting rate: I will post 1 or 2 times a week, if the players post more I will increase my post rate as much as I can but I can guarantee 1 or two a week.


ApplicationName:
Age:
Race: if you choose option 2, if not it is default human.
Gender: Male or female

Hobbies: From your life on earth, this may give you extra skills or other in game benefits such as special knowledge.
Items: Anything you brought with you if you chose option 3, if not dont worry about this section.

Backstory: Your life on earth


Deadline for apps:
6/9/2023

Application Name: Alan O’Dale
[/b]Age:[/b] 18
Race: Human
Gender: Male

Stats: Str 14| Dex 14| Con 10| Int 12 | Wis 8| Cha 12
Arrived via: Portal

right-aligned image


Character choices: Ranger, Rogue, Fighter, Sorceror

Hobbies: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Role Playing, Writing, Cooking, Travelling

Items: Hatchet, sleeping bag, waterproof backpack

Backstory: Alan knows that college isn’t his thing. So he planned to just get by delivering pizzas and being an Uber driver while he worked on his intellectual properties. Alan figured he could create role playing supplements until he had finished his first full original role playing game. Then he could write some novels based on his earlier creations and Jackpot! He hit the jackpot alright but not from his intellectual properties, but from a giant portal that transported him to another reality. Now he doesn’t have to just write about fantasies, he can live his own.

Alan just couldn’t believe it. There he was playing Starcrossed Online when there was a sudden shimmer in his room. And from the other side of the shimmer looked like some sort of forest. But not the normal kind, but the enchanted kind. Not that Alan knew what an enchanted forest would look like for real, but this is what came to mind as he saw it.

Should he step through? Was this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? What did he have to lose by taking that step? No one really except his foster aunt February Jones, who Alan was appreciative of for taking him in the last two years, but he had the distinct feeling she would be relieved when he moved on. And the dog, Sparky. He was a good boy. But like Feb, he seemed to prefer his space.

Do it! Alan’s mind yelled out to him to take the step. Taking a quick moment to survey his room, he ran to the closet and grabbed his pack of camping gear and jumped through the portal. Then everything went black.



STR - 12

Howdy. Posting interest!
I’ll try to have an App ready tonight!

The concept sounds pretty exciting, and I like the idea of starting Level 0.
Opens a many possibilities!

Yes, it will be a sandbox for the most part. I will put out plots hooks and the world will adjust to what the players do. Want to try and create a kingdom, be ready for war. want to be a bandit, be ready to be attacked by guards and adventurers. Want to build a merchant empire? be ready for other merchants to try and stop you. Basically, the story will morph to fit the playstyle the players want, and if the players want to split up and do their own thing that's fine to i will make separate threads for everyone that wants to try and go it alone.

@BlackDragon0 Hey, hey. Hey. Can I tell you a secret? You ARE supposed to put a little bit of yourself on your PCs. It’s how we trick ourselves into loving ourselves.

@Rylus If I may be a boring person for a bit… I uh, highly discourage you from splitting the party. I’d rather we all agree on doing similar things.
It’s incredibly fun, I won’t lie. I ran a Ravnica campaign for like 10 people and we had a blast! They were all from different guilds and I ran solo missions for them all as an introduction. But. I burnt out extremely quick.
Don’t be afraid to say no, alright? Alright.

I'd like to apply but not sure if I should. Cause I'd make my ch like me. And that may be too much for your idea here.
Army Ranger, major martial arts background, part native American, tracking and hunting skills. Major weapons training. Weight lifting, Ambidextrous( yes I can do 2 swords, num chucks, sias, Kamas, ect, write draw eat ( including chopsticks with both hands equally). Are you getting the picture. ( and don't think for a second I wouldn't grab my Japanese hand forged katana and military survival pack possibly my crossbow or trench coat and jump through said portal. If I could I'd grab everything but my electronics. And be like yes !!!!!)
That is a helluva background, thank you for serving by the way. Most of that would be very useful to a character i agree, but remember your going to a different world with monsters and such. The way people think on earth will be very much different in this other world. In any case i welcome the character you want to make, if you get selected we would have to talk about what bonuses you would get and what works with the world (I don't want to break the game at the start of it lol). You are meant to because massive entities in this new world, but it wont be easy.

Oh i know about burn out but with the posting rate and only having 6 or fewer players i will be ok, if i need to i can bring players back together. Also splitting up will be players choice and not recommended at the start.

Are we going to choose our class from that 4, or are you going to determine it?

1 hi, my names Ethan I was sitting listening to hair metal when the world started tripping and I was pulled from the earth. I'm wearing a ac/DC shirt jeans and converse. I'm a shift lead at mcdonalds so I know how to handle a rush and deal with people. Can't say I work out much though. I love hiking and getting into the woods. If I were to get a class probably ranger, rogue, druid, or fighter. Wolves are epic imagine turning into one.

Your actions will determine your class, ie if you spend a ot of time in the woods hunting and tracking then your most likely going to become a ranger, handle animals a lot you could become a druid, fly into a rage at slight provocations chances are your going to be a barbarian. I will be keeping track of actions and when you have completed enough you will earn the class you completed the most actions for, does that make sense? but it will always be one of the 4 you chose, i dont want anyone to end up with a class they dont like.

So questions. Would a pair of katanas count as one?
And if I were to grab a Survival pack would I get everything I normally put in it as 1 item, or would it be each item init is separate.
FYI I keep one in my car as a get home bag, one for hunting and one for disasters. All have lots of survival gear and other than the hunting pack having a 125lbs pull cross bow with scope. They all have the same stuff. (The others just have hand crossbow 6in bolts)
a pair of Katanas would count as 2 items. the survival bag, as long as its small (Say under 5 or 6 small things) i would count it all as one. You would need to list out what all was in the bag, but you can be sure that a bugout bag would be one of the first things i would grab if i was going to go through a portal into the unknown lol. The crossbow would be an individual item.

OOCHi hello, I think I want to try an Ow the Edge PC, and coerce him into a Path to Redemption!
Whether by choice, destiny, through a patron, or thanks to a deity. Or all of the above! aaaaaaaaaaa

Oh yeah! Joseph is his real name, but for plot purposes and character development I might keep it secret to the PCs!
I don't know what else to add, I'm hyped!
