Cool, let's go with that for the movement speed.

As for feats, I took ability score increase to con twice. For +4 to con.

Really curious about how this will play. A few questions.

1. Metamagic at level 1 with Blood Magic or do we have to wait until level 3 to use it?
2. For Basic Spellcasting, when you say a spell sot for 1 and 2 do you mean that it is a single spell slot that can hold lvl 1 or 2 spells? Or do you mean it's adding onto the level 1 and 2 spell slots already?
3. For custom lineage do you want us to choose between dark vision and a skill proficiency, or just ignore that completely and follow along with what you gave us?
4. Do I need to have a shied if I play a spellcaster, and what does that mean for gold?
5. What do you want us to do for background?
6. As a custom race feat, what if I were to take Metamagic adept? How does that play with your Blood Magic?
7. I know that some classes use a particular spellcasting ability, so for something that says "Add Cha mod to____" for sorcerer, would I instead use the chosen spellcasting ability with Basic Spellcasting?

I'll bother you more if I have anymore questions!

Non-application BitsSo, inspiration struck and an application was made. That said, I really do like this idea and enjoyed character generation a lot more than I probably should have - support build go! Nevertheless I think Calla's pretty much done save for going over everything with a fine-toothed comb to root out all those pesky spelling errors or to fix anything that I did incorrectly on the mechanical front.
Character Application - Calla Tivin
right-aligned image
What is your name?
Oh, y'know something short and sweet, like Bren. That's cute right? What don't believe me - too bad. To you I'm Bren, to that guy I'm Leah, to the local bartender I'm Trouble. To my friends though, to them I'm Calla, Calla Tivin.

What are your pronouns?
Hmm, that's a toughie buuuut I think she and they work well and suit me just fine.

How old are you?
Who's askin'? If you gotta know I'm the ripe old age of 19. Don't see why it matters though.

Were you from Great Uhl Originally?
Yep, lived out of an inn, but hey, it was better than the orphanage and the owner was a nice guy. Think his name was Kent, Kant, Kart, eh - somethin' with a K.

If I may ask, how did you lose your parents?
They died, but you knew that. You want the specifics, well there ain't much to it - Ma was healer though she was picky with her patients, gave some hot-shot the boot for a superficial problem and paid the price. As for dad? Never met the guy, Ma said he was a good sort but considering he ditched her before I was in the picture, I don't believe it. Probably ended up in a gutter somewhere, no big loss for the world if you ask me.

Do you believe the huckster's tale?
Pfft, nah. Any darn fool could make up something like that and get a bunch of folks to believe. Sides, I learned a long time ago most things that sound too good to be true usually are. But everyone else seems invested so might as well tag along to keep 'em standing.

What will you wish for if you find a shard?
Huh, to be honest I haven't really thought about it. Depends on how the wishes work really, if the wish only goes to the person who finds it - meaning one wish no matter what - I'd wish that everyone else got their wish. If everyone who finds the shard gets a wish though, I'd probably go for something really superficial - like money or something...maybe even wishing I was normal, after all being different didn't do Ma any favors.

Did you have a job before this? What was it?
I was a street performer of sorts, did some tricks, picked some pockets, made the kiddos smile, and snuck into some places I shouldn't have. Nothin' too fancy really. Didn't even manage to pay any bills to be fair - it was more of a hobby than a job.

Appearance: Calla, yes that is her real name, is a bit above average height young woman whose slightly underweight, and has a head of full grey hair despite her young age. With fair skin, and sharp features she cuts a striking figure with her taste in clothes. Most of which are black to contrast with her otherwise pallid color scheme. Perhaps her most notable feature is a black bit of cloth constantly wrapped around her eyes while in public. One might ask why and her response is it adds to her mystique, besides the thing isn't exactly thick and is easy enough to see through. Behind the fabric lie two oddly colored eyes, each a brilliant silver almost white that seem to have the faintest glow about them. A gift according to her mother, but a curse if you ask Calla. Folks who knew her mother sought her out after the woman died to heal them all because of those blasted eyes, and she wasn't about to follow in her Ma's footsteps.

Blood Magic is Metamagic at 1st level.
One spell slot each for 1st and 2nd level spells.
Skill or darkvision, I just expanded the options.
No one needs a shield; you have it as one of three choices.
Background just take flavor stuff, if you want. No skills or anything from it (that's already factored in).
Metamagic Adept is fine, it just will have a seperate pool of sorcery points as usual instead of using hit dice.
I hadn't even thought about that, but yeah, use your spellcasting mod.

I didn't see damage listed for Mind Limbs. Do you have to take Fighting Style: Unarmed Fighting in order to take this ability?

You don't have to take it, but it will improve the damage. By default, they do the normal unarmed damage.

APPLICATION wip..

What is your name?

-Kip, pleased to meet ya!

What are your pronouns?

-Him, He

How old are you? (18 to 24)

-I'm 18 years old.. I think.

Were you from Great Uhl originally?

-As far as I know, sure!

If I may ask, how did you lose your parents?

-Can't lose what you never had. They lost me, more like.. Got raised by the wildest of street kids before being taken in by the orphanage.

Do you believe the huckster's tale?

- Sure! What do mean? What's not to believe?

What will you wish for if you find a shard?

- Don't really know yet, to be honest.. what say we find it first?

Did you have a job before this? What was it?

-Well.. I've been know to be browsing the markets for good deals (pickpocket) and selling them to upstanding businessmen over at the docks. I'll also took part in some neighbourhood watch activities, rooftop activities to be precise, distributing goods as I saw fit. But not much of a dawn to dusk worker, no. I'm one of the last to leave the orphanage so my experience is limited.

Appearance: I'm the runt of the pack. I'm short and have a lean physique. My dirty blond hair sticks out in all possible directions and I don't have much of facial hair yet. A bit scruffy from the neck up, but I dress dapper, I think. I feel it's important to look good and you will probably see me dressed in brown pants, a black vest and a white shirt underneath. I do own a mask that covers my entire head except for the eyes, and I have a dark coat with many pockets sewn on the inside, but those are just to keep me warm, you hear?

Chosen Feat(s):
Chosen Abilities: Expertise, Mimicry, Pocket Space, Wildshape, Proficiency

What is your name? Agent Skyla Morgan Rayburn

What are your pronouns? She/Her

How old are you? (18 to 24) 24 years old. My age was known when I was taken in by the orphanage.

Were you from Great Uhl originally? I don’t know, but I was raised in Great Uhl, so I guess you can say that I’m from here.

If I may ask, how did you lose your parents? I didn’t lose my parents, they are….. just lost. For reasons unknown my parents left me at the orphanage. I know I have a mother and father, but I don’t who they are, if I have any siblings, where they are or even if they are still alive. I suspect that the orphanage might know, but I haven’t been able to prove it yet.


Do you believe the huckster's tale?

What will you wish for if you find a shard?

Did you have a job before this? What was it? Yes. I am an investigator. I investigate crimes both mundane and supernatural in origins, mostly of the supernatural variety. I can see and sense things that others normally can’t. I use my abilities to help in the solving these crimes.

Appearance:

Chosen Feat(s): Gift of the Gem Dragon and ASI
Chosen Abilities: : Eldritch Invocation, Divine Grace, Psionic Sustenance, Psionic Weaponry, Supernatural Sense.

I'm assuming that the feats we choose are from official WoTC releases?

OOCInteresting concept and world, so I figured I'd throw my hat in. If you have anything more you need from me, let me know!

Application
right-aligned image
What is your name?
"You wish for my name. How about Tiil? Does that suffice?"


What are your pronouns?
"My pronouns. Well, I have no true preference, but if you need something to call me aside from the name I gave you, perhaps he/they should do?"


How old are you?
"You may have noticed I'm not a human. I'm a Vedalken, and we don't age like humans. We mature by the time we are in our 40's and live for much, much longer. I am, in fact, 53, though in human terms that would make me the equivalent of a 24 year old."


Were you from Great Uhl originally?
"Do you mean the place I was born or the place I consider myself from? I was not born here. However, I have lived here for the last 18 years, thus I do consider myself from Great Uhl."


If I may ask, how did you lose your parents?
"I'm a magic user. My parents were magic users, but in our culture we carved magic into wood and were instructed to create staves for sorcerers at the Academy - among other various items. My parents wanted more for me outside of woodcarving, so they sent me to the Academy where I would discover other ways magic cold be used. Naturally, I excelled; honed my abilities exceptionally, but I wanted more.

I came into the company of a blood mage and he taught me everything he knew about what the Academy would consider the "dark arts." Only fools would believe that all who wield power are evil because they themselves envy such power.

I brought my new abilities to the Academy hoping to explain that there was, in fact, a safe way to use blood magic by using one's own life force, but the Academy feared it, so they banished me. So, I walked for a long time until I came upon this city and this orphanage for shelter. I stayed, I worked, and I lived. Now, you speak to me asking me personal questions."


Do you believe the huckster's tale?
"I'll ask you the same thing. Do you believe the huckster's tale? Because whether it's real or fictitious doesn't matter to me. What matters to me is whether I'm busy or not, and, considering I've taken this time to answer questions for you, I'd say that I don't have anything currently on my schedule. Therefore, I have time to listen to anyone."


What will you wish for if you find a shard?
"What you're asking me is what I'd wish for in general. What I'd wish for is power. Enough to get me what I want. Within reason, of course."


Did you have a job before this? What was it?
"Well, I'd already shared that my family worked with wood, so I took those skills and used them here. Most of my buyers don't even understand the power within the items they're bringing home."


Appearance:
Tiil, like most of his kind, is tall, bald, and blue. Markings - which appeared during his time studying magic in the academy - run about his entire body in a lighter purple; intersecting with each other and creating patterns that look too perfect to be simple body paint. His arm definition indicates years of woodworking experience, and the muscles on his legs depicting the thousands of miles he has walked. Tiil's cheekbones are high and defined; a round chin sits between two broad sides of a jaw that work with the cheekbones to create subtly concave cheeks. Tiil's lips are as blue as his skin, and his mouth reaches as far apart as his eyes are from each other. A pair of round, dark blue eyes sit beside a wide and crooked nose. The nose sitting between (what should be) eyebrows that create arches along the eyes. His ears aren't anything special, just some stanard pointy Vedalken ears.

As for how he dresses, Tiil never wears anything too fancy. Underneath a light orange linen poncho, he wears brown cloth pants, and his arms and wrists are covered in white wrappings. Sandals are Tiil's go-to choice for footwear as they're simple to take on and off. He carries with him a magic wooden staff which he crafted himself, and a carving knife that he carries on a leather belt hidden by the poncho.
