I have added a note in the Character build section stating, simply, that the option to become Mythic will present itself later in the game. The option is not available at the start of the game, however.

Name: Dragi Utrix
Race: Half Orc
Class: Blacksmith/Commander 4
Intended Role: Buffer, Ally Booster, Melee Defender
Alignment: Neutral Evil
Crime: Murder (Highway Bandit)

Height: 6'2" | Weight: 285 lbs
Age: 24 | Skin: Moss Green
Hair: Shaved Bald
Eyes: Black
Usual Attire: Loose fitting robes with a bare chest and with thick heavy pants with leather boots or reinforced metal plate frequently paired with a massive two handed weapon or a pair of throwing axes.

Description: Dragi is a massive brute of a half orc. His orc side was always more prominent than his human side and it never helped him growing up. Now that he has, he has learned to embrace it. His body is a testament to strength and the skills of a blacksmith as layers of of muscles cover his upper body. It is a also a story of his rough life and constant run in with gangs, guards, and everyone else with a knife. Over his heart he has tattooed the holy symbol of Gorum and on the other side he has the smoking tower of Varg to guide his voice and hand in leading men in battle.

Personality: Dragi is a boisterous fellow who is constantly hanging out with the followers and hanger-ons. He likes to spend his nights drinking, swapping stories about his various misadventures and deeds, and competiting in feats of strength and skill. He dislikes violence for violence sakes among his own people and believes that they all need to look out for each other because no one else will. When he isn't engaging in his night life he keeps a disciplined regiment of work and skill crafting. He is constantly tinkering on everyone's gear, adding a fresh edge to their weapons or replacing worn straps and dented plates. His follower are always strutting around in the best gear for he ensures it every morning and day for he knows that what keeps each of his troop alive isn't the biggest man or the most skill, but having equipment that will stand up to the punishment of the battlefield.

Background:Dragi is a bastard son of a human lord and his lover. A disgrace for his father and a so called stain on the lineage, he was kicked out with his mother to the street to hopefully die and disappear from sight for the rest of his life. Well the first did not happen, but the second did. She ended up working as a waitress in a run down slum of a bar and he was raised by the streets as best as he could manage. He learned all manner of skills during his youth, but the most valuable was how to lead the fellow children in the games and raids against other gangs. As he grew older, his mother got sick from a wasting disease and passed away during a hard winter. Taking up petty thieving and thug work, he quickly had a rap sheet and spent the rest of his youth on and off in jail.

When he reached adulthood he found an out from the city. One of the local gangs liked his strength and skill and recruited him for some jobs. Taking him out of the city, he started to work collecting tolls from bridge crossing and remote villages. The work agreed with his skillset and he quickly advanced to leading his own group around. After a run in with a group of soldiers guarding the road whom he outnumbered 3 to 1, he still watched them cut down nearly two thirds of his squad before they were taking down. Walking away with half his squad dead and another quarter bleeding out on the road behind him, he tried to figure out why they had done so poorly. Men and women who he had learned to like despite their rough ways and questionable hygiene. He knew many of them were as skilled combatant as anyone else. You had to be if you got to their age in their line of work and realized that it was the equipment. The guards had all been well armed, well armored, and coordinated. His group had attacked like rapid animals. Individually strong but completely uncoordinated tactically and the soldiers had take advantage of it. Recruiting the rest of his group, he splintered off and formed his own banditry group. Learning the basics of weapon gear maintenance and the skills to go with maintaining a group of troops, he quickly developed a strong core of followers. Each day he would lead them in tactics and at night they would raid merchants and others for their coin and valuables. It was pleasant work and they kept it clean by quickly overwhelming the guards before an alarm could be raised.

It was that success that lead to complacency and more daring raids. More followers flocked to his banner and before long his smaller troop numbered in the dozens and dozens. He had to break the group apart into different bands and send them to different roads least they attract too much attention. Seeing a large caravan moving along the road, he sent word and gathered up his forces only he didn't know one of his messengers had been ambushed along the way. Instead of the reinforcements, a platoon of soldiers were on their way. The raid turned into a disaster when they arrived and instead of getting away, it turned into a kidnapping. Disaster struck disaster when the army attacked anyway and some of the hostages he had taken ended up dead in the fighting. It turns out one of them was a lord's daughter and her betrothed going to get ready for their wedding. The nobles called for his head and the years of preying on merchant caravans ensured that no one saw any problems with a quick trial and execution.

I am practically tripping over my own feet running in here to apply for this. I have wanted to be in a WOTW campaign for so long.

App complete!

Character Concept
right-aligned image

Name: Gunther Bontrielle
Race: Human (with Alchemically Enhanced Additional Racial Trait if that is what you mean by additional racial trait)
Class: (Side 1) Fighter (Two-Handed Fighter)
Class: (Side 2) Alchemist (no archetype)

Intended Role: Damage dealer, crafter, tank, buffer
Alignment: Lawful Evil.
Crime: Grave Robbery

Height: 6'1" tall | Weight: 280 pounds
Age: 23 | Skin: Fair, pockmarked
Hair: Bald on his head (shaves his head due to hair falling out), facial hair is sandy brown
Eyes: Brown
Usual Attire: Gunther dresses as your typical man at arms - he wears armor and carries steel when he is expecting trouble, otherwise plain functional clothing during his regular day to day.

Physical Description:
Gunther is only slightly taller than the average man, but his girth is formidable and intimidating. He has a square, light skinned face with a heavy brow and brown eyes, with his scalp freshly shaved down to the skin. He has a thin hawk-like nose and a wide mouth, with a light growth of facial hair that runs from the tops of his ears to a beard below. His face is heavily pockmarked and he is missing one of his front teeth, giving him a rough looking appearance. His neck resembles a tree stump, and his torso is as wide and thick as a mead barrel. He is heavy of limb with large hands, with arms the size of the average man's legs, his width stretching the outer limits of the tattered prisoner rags he is wearing. His muscles are hugely out of proportion and show stretch marks from where they grew. The trousers are tied loosely around his waist, barely containing his massive legs, and his large feet have dirty wraps tied around them for protection.

Personality:
Gunther possesses the cold and calculating logic of the scientist with the obsessive streak of self-improvement at all costs. He is obsessed with his own personal power and wealth, and will take any steps to enhance either if the probability seems highly successful. He enjoys the company of those he feels are his equals in intelligence, and has little patience for frivolity or fools. He is highly disciplined and strict with himself, and sees most leisure activities as a waste of time. He would much rather spend his time studying, experimenting, or practicing his swordplay. Gunther feels that the ultimate man is one who blends the athlete and the scholar together, and strives to reach the highest peaks of this ideal. He is grimly practical and realistic about life, and has little time for sentiment or sorrow. Although a scholar at heart, Gunther enjoys a good fight and will be one of the first to close the gap and engage if need be. He has a strict personal code that he keeps to himself and possesses a dogged determination. Once he sets his sights on a goal, he pursues it to the best of his ability. Gunther easily bears a grudge and has a vengeful streak in him that could be his own undoing someday.

I have a Discord Channel for those who would like to join to possibly get answers in real time: https://discord.gg/z8Z4tEfj.

You will only have access to the lobby. Just stick around in there until I assign you the Wicked Whacko Role to get access to the Way of the Wicked Channel.

If you don't get invited to the game I will probably kick you from the Discord when the time comes.

Let me know if this works. Kind of proud of it. :P

Applications
right-aligned image
Name: "Victor"
Race: Human
Class: (Side 1) Oracle
Class: (Side 2) Arcanist

Intended Role: Battlefield Controller
Alignment: Lawful Evil
Crime: The primary conviction of "Victor" is for Consorting with the Dark Powers. It's worth noting that it's his primary conviction solely based on how that's the easiest of his crimes to prove in a Court of Law. Since that conviction he's also been convicted of several other Crimes of the Forsaken; Arson, Murder, Attempted Murder, Blasphemy, Desecration of a Shrine, and Grave Robbery.

You still only get 1 favored class.

I have created an Applicant's table

Ruprect is a stand-in name. I will change it when a name appears for the character.

Already 7 potential applicants! Only one has dared to delve into the excellent Spheres of Power system. I personally find it difficult to go without it now that I've had a taste!

@Gleeful Nihilism Is your application complete? That is an interesting character you have crafted there... I would love to see him come to life using Spheres of Power, if you have an interest. Oracle // Arcanist could be a seriously potent combination with Vancian Magic with the sheer versatility on the table. Spheres would tone that down a bit by limiting the scope of what he can do. Spheres of Power have versions of Arcanist and Oracle if you would like to delve into the system a bit.

Sphere Oracle
Sphere Arcanist.

If you are not interested that's fine. There are ways to mitigate Vancian powers of the Oracle and Arcanist since they rely on a more limited pool of spells. Even Arcanists need their spells to be in their spell book.

I have an idea for a spheres character, but I want to know how optimised I should plan to make my character.

For Optimization, I'd say what will be acceptable will depend on how optimized the other applicants end up being. You should probably scale it down if other applicants aren't going all out but craft what you want for now and if we need to scale back, we can work together to do that.

If you stay in your lane you can probably go much farther without stepping on any toes, but if you can do everything and in some cases better than other characters in that lane, you should maybe focus more and have your own thing.

If you're willing to work with the group to stay close to even in power, we'll be a long way towards a great game regardless of its final power level. If you give your character obvious weaknesses, it will go a long way towards tolerating discrepancies in power.
