After consideration, I'm going to go with a Sun Elf Beguiler (Class from Players Handbook 2), and will be forgoing the Vows, as you were right about them being rather restricting. This should also cover the Trapsmith Role.


The Ballad of Mirrel the Marvellous - Archmage Extraordinaire
right-aligned image

Name: Mirrel the Marvelous - "Archmage Extraordinaire"
Age: 150
Gender: Male
Appearance: While quite short at a mere 5', he looks a little taller due to his habit of wearing tall headwear (not an accident by the way!) Tends to wear flashy, or at least eye-catching clothing in his ensemble, including a fake goatee beard.
Class: Beguiler
Race: Sun Elf
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Personality: He knows a story relevant to almost every situation. Whenever he comes to a new place, he collects local rumors and spreads gossip. He likes seeing the smiles on people's faces when he performs, that's all that matters to him.
He idolizes a hero of the old tales (a great trickster, known as the "Sainted Physician") and measure his deeds against that person's.
A scandal prevents him from ever going home again. That kind of trouble seems to follow him around.
Background:

@Anarchy - 2-3 posts a week is a good starting point though may adjust it up or down based on the desires of the successful group.

@Arkerpay - knowledge of forgotten realms is not a requirement. If you play a local boy then you can learn about the world around you at the same time as your character does.

Both concepts would work though I suggest you pick something that you would enjoy playing.

@Triedtherest - beguiler is fine

Name: Alia Ibn Abbas (meaning Alia, the daughter of Abbas, formerly Alia abd Hatim, meaning Alia, slave of Hatim)
Race: Human
Class: Rogue
Description: She has a slender body at 5’6, green eyes and jet black hair down to her mid back, which at times will put in pony tail so not get in the way. Her skin is dark, like she been out in the sun all her life. She wears a simple gear, a backpack, bow, a sword and a dagger at each thigh.
right-aligned image

Personality: Easy to get along with and always listens to what is being said, which people like. She is always alert, not wanting to miss a thing, be it business, danger, or pleasure. She is fascinated by what she seen so far of the land she is in, the culture, the weather, the various races. Being alone, having her for a friend, you get a friend for life. One thing she will not tolerate is slavery.

Background: Born in a small town, not a lot goes on, but there are a few town guards that keeps a look out for bandits and raiders, which is common. Growing up, she often wondered what life was like outside of her town. The day had come when she was about to find out.

She was 15 at the time when she was at the market, getting food when shouts ran out. She turned to see a bunch of riders coming hard, dressed in black. Bandits! She ran into a shop and chaos issued outside and hid behind a huge barrel. There were sounds of screams, clashes of swords, whizzing of arrows. Door suddenly burst open, and she tried to stay quiet, but the men were ransacking the place and they found her hiding. Two of the men pulled off the ground and one of them carried her to a rider. She tried to fight to get away, but they just laughed. When the raid was done, she was carried off as were other females.

It was a 3 day ride before the riders reached their destination. A few days later, she was sold to another group who took her and a couple of other women to a small palace. She then found out that she was now part of the harem of the Sultan. Luckily, she was made mostly as a servant and dancer, since the Sultan preferred his women a few years older. Two years later at age 17, a group was visiting the Sultan when the leader, dressed in strange clothing spotted her and asked about her. Being a virgin and young, she was high price. The man paid for her and a few days later, she was with her new master.

It was a long ride, over a week, when they came to the ocean. There was a ship there waiting. She was leaving her homeland, Zakhara. The travel over seas was long too and she took seasick for the next 3 days before she recovered and could handle the rest of the voyage. Finally, land was in sight, she was told it was Faerun. She only heard of it in passing. They stayed at port for a couple of days. Alia was afraid her new master would take her to bed, but no, he wanted to wait until they arrived home, so he could enjoy her better. After the 4th day, a scout stopped, his hand up in warning. All the men looked around, but saw nothing for a couple of moments, then heard growls and strange creatures with long tooth at each end of their mouths, sticking out. There were charging at them with swords out and some where shooting arrows.

Men and creatures fought, and the men were losing. One of them freed Alia, pointing a direction, then yelling her to run into the forest he pointed at, saying the orcs kills men, but they keep women to breed. She looked in horror, then needed no other encouragement, just thinking of being with those creatures called orcs got her running in full speed. An orc saw her and ran after her and followed her into the woods, but the chase didn’t last long, after about a 100 yards, the orc was struck dead by 3 arrows. Alia stopped and looked around, shaken. Some men came into the open, but she noticed they weren’t human, they had long ears and were more slender. Two of them and gone off in the direction which she came from. A few moments later, they came back. The humans were dead, a handful of orcs were left, but after shooting a couple of arrows at them, the orcs turned and left. She found that she was with a band of elves.

They taken her to their home, and she thanked them, then told them her story. They were sympathetic and made her feel welcomed. She stayed with the elves a few months, they were very interested in hearing about her homeland. They taught her to speak elven. Alia was fascinated by them, she was shocked when she learned how long they can live. After her stay, two of them escorted her the city of Silverymoon, figuring that would be a safe place for her. The city is run by the High Lady Alustriel. They talked of her on the way there and Alia was surprised that a woman is running a city. She thanked the elves and she entered the city. The elves gave her some money that would last a couple of days.

In her habit of being a slave, she swiped an item here and there. A man waited until she was alone, then approached her. He saw what she did and was impressed. He worked for the Thieves Guild and offer her to come with him. She wasn’t much interested in that, but the curiosity got to her, and she went with the man and became a member. She spent all her time there, becoming a decent thief. She didn’t realize that there were more than just stealing. Some rogues actually help out a city. Jarrard Lackman was one of the instructors there and took a liking to the girl. Whenever she needed help, he was there. She was 19 now and Jarrard and her took a few days off. The man invited her to go with him to a small village called Eastpass. His brother Gerrad owns the only inn there. Saying it was a nice place, friendly folks and he had 3 nieces that Alia could hang out with. So she went with him.

I am fine playing anything that isn't too complicated, but keeping track of a wizard's spell book is a bit of a chore. The point was to fill any gaps in the party. Since we have a rogue candidate, I can go with a young priest. Should I go with the big, bear-like easy going priest, or the small, intense, militant priest?

This doesn't go with the other questions I asked, just sort of tossing around ideas.

Man, it's been forever since I played 3.5 Forgotten Realms which is still my favorite game system and setting. Unfortunately, I'm taped out on games so I'll just say,

Good luck with your game Alatere and have fun

I loves me sum 3.5. I'll even try very hard to not include Warlock or Binder in my build in any way for this app

Got a deadline for when this app needs to be done?

@Akerpay - Either type of priest would work. I suggest you apply with whichever concept you think will be the most fun to play



@Silk - Thanks for the well wishes

@Maghnuis - As the game starts at level 2 only races with a max of +1 LA are viable. If you mean these rules then yes LA Buy off would be acceptable.

@Schism - Once the game thread has been created I will post the application deadline. You've got atleast a week though. Most likely the end of the month.

My Application for Mirrel is complete, unless you needed a Character Sheet as well?

Also, are Flaws/Traits allowed?

You know me so well...

No savage progression allowed? Was thinking of a Griffon.. a bit unusual, but a decent melee even at lower levels (especially if you allow the CR=levels homerule)

@triedtherest - no character sheets are not required until after the successful party members have been chosen.
- I will most likely allow traits and flaws however I will discuss it with each player during character creation.

@Ursinorum - I’m quite intrigued about how you would roleplay a Griffon
