Yes, it is what I meant. But I don't like to be a stickler when it isn't necessary, and I gathered your background was probably hermit?

I know I'm coming in under the wire, but I will throw my hat in the ring.
Application
left-aligned image
Name: Valoric Reedsinger
Race: Dwarf (Shield)
Class: Ranger (revised)
Alignment: Neutral-Good
Season of the Year: Spring
Appearance: Image attached
Personality Trait 1: Different Assumptions: My understandings of personal space is different from the local norm.
Personality Trait 2: Confusing Traditions: I start my day with strange little rituals native to my homeland.
Ideal: Open - I have met a lot of people along my way of which I can learn from. (Good)
Bond 1: Loved one left behind: I regret having to leave my wife behind, I had no choice and hope to see her again one day.
Bond 2: Pilgrim: I traveled to this place to find and trade for 'exotic' crop seeds and cultivation methods to bring back to my homeland one day.
Flaw: Disagree With Local Actions / Motivations: I am in a strange land where I struggle with some of the local actions and motivations.
Background: Far-Traveler.
Valoric Reedsinger is a rural dwarf of a far off village. A farming community, they rely on trade of crops. The last few years, their fields started suffering problems and diminishing yields. While it's not an emergency *yet*, the village elders decided to send out 4 rangers to 4 different far-off locations to search for new crops or new farming techniques to bring back home and revitalize their homeland. Valoric, a married man with two children already on their own, was one of the selected. His experience as one of the village's rangers and 'expertise' dealing with people made him an obvious choice. He bid his wife goodbye and set off on his way, eventually ending up in the city of Waterdeep.
Have you played Dragon Heist: No

Some good apps right at the end. You guys are all making my job difficult

Anyways, applications close soon. I'll be making my picks by Wednesday of this week.

I don't know if this meets the deadline, but I figured I'd apply anyways! Please give me feedback on my application.

Application
right-aligned image

Character Name: Slippy (he/him / any pronouns)
Race: Half-Elf
Class: Fighter (might multiclass into bard at higher levels)
Alignment: Neutral Good
Background: Criminal

Personality Traits: I tend to trip over myself, usually ruining whatever plan was in place. But hey, I don't need a backup plan - I am the backup plan.
Ideal: I never steal from someone who can't afford to lose a few gold (or platinum). Sure, my family lives well from our thievery, but we never let the street folk in our neighbourhood go hungry. We were in their place, once.
Bond (Personal): The other members of my thieves' guild are my family, and I would do anything to protect them.
Bond (Waterdeep): I grew up on the streets of Waterdeep until a thieves' guild adopted me as one of their own. They've threatened to throw me out unless I successfully complete this last task for them.
Flaw: I can't help it - when I'm upset, my emotions get the better of me.

Preferred Starting Season: Summer (but I'm not picky)
Acquaintance: Yagra Stonefist. I worked with her on a few missions that involved less stealth and more... intimidating others to share their wealth. I admire her tell-it-like-it-is attitude, and maybe one day I'll finally beat her in arm wrestling.

General Description: Tall and muscular, with long flowing blonde hair and piercing green eyes, this half-elf guard standing on your doorstep looks like he just stepped off the cover of a romance novel. You'll invite him in for some friendly conversation over tea, won't you? Well, once he's left, you'll notice quite a few of your most expensive gems are missing. Slippy's done his job - distracting you while his siblings sneak in and plunder your mansion. After all, he's not really a guard, but a member of one of Waterdeep's many thieves' guilds, and he's just completed a mission for his family. Hope that conversation was worth it!

Secret Writing Sample:



I just joined RPG Crossing and posted an application for a NPSG! I've never done PbP before, but I've DM'd and played 5e.

APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED

I will be considering the submissions today and tomorrow and will make the decision by the end of Wednesday at the latest, depending on how much time I have to sit down with it.

A lot of good submissions. If you didn't complete the application, I will consider it based on what was submitted, provided I have enough info to get a good idea of the character. Thank you all for applying, and good luck in all your future applications as well!

Alright everyone, work has been agonizingly slow the past couple days, so I have been able to sit down and really weigh the applications. It's been really freakin' hard, and I can't pick a team without at least a few regrets, but here's who I've settled on:

Retry - Almire
calledThird - Churl
Oakie - Sylvie
Houtoku - Koryn
Azure Nokori - Salty
Draidden - Dvanar


Good applications, guys, you made it difficult. If anyone from this lineup drops out, I will reach out to invite one of the other applicants in first before making a public request for a new player. Thank you all so much for your interest in my first RPGX game as a DM. I wish you all the best of luck!
