Might just be the ol' school vibe mentioned in the setting feel. A lot of folks think nostalgic D&D and single class/classic races spring to mind. Surprised no dwarves XD

I never did figured out why elves and dwarfs in the old D&D were called classes and not races

Because it was heavily influenced by Tolkein. Like... very influenced. So dwarves, elves, and halflings (hobbits) were just that. Their Tolkein-esque stereotype was their class.

PalladiaMors is 100% correct. 1st edition D&D is practically straight out of Tolkien, including Elves living for millennia, etc. I did always like how the 1st Edition Bard required you to be a Fighter, then a Thief before entering the Bard Class. Although by 1st Edition multiclassing rules you needed a lot of 15s and 17s for ability scores! It is sort of like Prestige Bards, Rangers and Paladins are presented in UA.

Name: Maru Hellspite
Race: Hellbred
Alignment: Lawful Good
Class: Duskblade

Description: Maru is a tall, muscular female with red skin and short white hair. She looks rather like a well-built tiefling, all things considered - her rebirth as a Hellbred gave her fiendish traits like the red skin, bat-like ears further up her head, a pair of long horns, a third eye in the middle of her forehead, and fangs at the corners of her mouth. She carries a massive spiked club as a weapon. Her clothing consists mostly of a chest-wrap and animal-fur kilt. She wears armor over these, of course. When she's not, however, it's easy to see that her body bears scars from battle.

 


Personality: Maru is serious in her self-imposed duties when it comes to confronting and combating evil, but she certainly doesn't forget to live along the way. She laughs when she's amused, fights for the places and people she loves, and enjoys life's pleasures when they present themselves at opportune moments. She knows to savor every drop of drink, every note of a song, and every moment in pleasant company, because she lives in the shadow of a simple inevitability: when Maru dies, her soul is bound for Baator. Supposedly redemption is out there, somewhere - but who knows if she's strong enough to earn it, let alone deserve it?


Background: There are two histories to the adventurer known as Maru: her life, and what came after.

 


 


 


METAThe last bit of her "Now" backstory is pretty much just a placeholder - I figure she's been active for a few years doing jobs, training her body and skills, etc. I'm happy to link up with someone else's app! Maru would likely pair well with a casty or healer; she's a duskblade so she could always say she learned to wield magic from a casty compnaion, or went with a healer to help with their goals.

I'd like to make the exact link and story after I know who all is in, though - I'd be sad if I wrote up a whole story and background with, say, the bat girl and then only one of us got in. So batgirl needs to make new friends without a musclegirl oni or I need to do it without my wingy healer bff, you know?

As an open invitation, though, I can see decent reasons for Maru to join and have adventured with just about every other application for various durations. I have it stuck in my head that she'd be with a mage or healer, but I could easily see her joining the ranger to have someone to track quarry with, or the rogue because she sees some of her past self in them and wants to guide them, or the bard because they play good music and get themselves in trouble a lot, etc.

I love seeing so many 3.5 apps, it shows people are still interested in this edition. Of course it is more competition too....

WOO, just a few days more until sheeting potentially! And an excess of good character submissions... >.>

Yea, 3.5 games are always popular when they come up. I'm pretty stoked one came up after another I was in just ended. Here's to a good ol' time slappin' bad guys and helpin' good guys :3

my favorite character to play in 3.5 games is a succubus. Unfortunately, haven't found any games that start off in higher levels. Only two, one was fun, but fame died quick, then 2nd tie, DM didn't allowed Savage Species book. Ah well.

I found myself rather enjoying playing a yuan-ti/naga snake person, the lower-half snake upper-half human thing was a fun idea for a while. Same issue with people not playing a high enough LA or Savage Species to play it. Currently I'm into Oni/giants, and just playing Tiefling/Hellbred and calling them big n' ripped like Oni lol

If I have asked you for extra information I would recomend also adding it to the post with your app in it (even if you keep it secret) as that is where I will be looking when I complete my final review / select succesful applicants.























3.5 is still my favourite edition going. (joined by pathfinder though it feels like an extension of 3.5 to me)
