An application should include:
Name

A basic description of concept/physical description that others can see. Please make it believable (I had a friend who always loved to make petite little 15 year old girls with like 18+ Str. She thought it hilarious) Also please note if your gear differs from your pic, if you have a wizard or social character pic wearing silks but in combat you wear full plate mail we should know that.

Race

Class

(If you want to private the rest that is fine some have already asked about things they would like to keep private)

A brief background (if there are secrets or important things here please make sure they are Noticeable

personality

Any custom feats/Items/unusual spells and so on. (I encourage custom, Mass produced Long sword+1 is boring) I also allow minor magical displays on items (the blade glows a faint gold when in use on my sword.) it makes it easily Identifiable as yours but harder to hide it's magic. nothing that would be useful (a light spell is out) please remember that others can see any sizable gear so even if you private me your special gear a visual description should be public.

I try to trust my characters and really don't want to micromanage your character so I don't demand a character sheet and spell book. but if you want to send them to me I keep confidences and I don't mind sometimes it helps me when character are doing private quests (I can customize your quest better.) sooner or later in a sandbox I assume everyone will have some kind of private quest or secret. a group of characters is made up of Individuals, not classes, not races and definitely not stats.

CaelynnName: Caelynn
Homeland: The Poison Woods
Race: Human
Class: Totemist 2/Incarnate 1
Alignment: NG

Short Term Goal: Deliver Herzog's medicine to its intended recipient in Stormwall. They paid for it, after all.
Short Term Goal: Make some adventurer friends.
Long Term Goal: Learn to read and write at least one language so she can read more about the creatures she's seen in the picture books. Maybe even reading bigger ones with more words.
Long Term Goal: Live up to her father's adventuring exploits, and maybe even show him up in a big score, for prestige's sake more than the reward itself.

Concept: An elite courier, with a matching price, trusted by many merchants in the Poison Woods.
Appearance: Caelynn is light for her height of 5'6", and has well-defined musculature. A handful of her short, black dreadlocks are pulled back tightly, revealing dark brown eyes, nearly black.

Currently, she has dark grey fur around her arms and a chitinous breastplate, dons a pearly crystal crown, and has massive gynosphinx claws. She also has pale, translucent wings and a matching gown over her clothing.
Image

Background: Caelynn was raised primarily by her adventurer father, a rogue of impressive skill, after his messy divorce from her mother. He told all his children tales of his adventures (and his second story jobs).

While she never really picked up his trade, he supported Caelynn going her own way, even more so when she first managed to shape incarnum at the age of 13, a trait inherited from her father's father. She first began shaping the features of magical beasts she'd met or wandered near, before expanding her repertoire with pictures she'd seen in books like A is for Ankheg. She learned from a local alchemist (specializing in making medicines) named Herzog, who remains her friend to this very day, how to shape more "normal" and less "wild" things, like bracers and boots.

When she was young, she got lost in the Woods, but managed to find her way home after a few days, while surviving on local flora her father had taught her was "safe" (some actually safe) to eat.

Caelynn is the second youngest of 8 children, all with differemt mothers, all foisted on the same man, due to his wealth and actual desire to care for them. Whether he was actually able to instill anything in most of them is up for debate, but he did his best to raise them.

A few years ago, Caelynn murdered a spellcaster, a wizard specifically, in an unfair duel over...she doesn't even remember. She regrets it, but not as much as she should. It likely would have been her death if it had not been his. But as it was a duel, it was deemed legal for her to do so.

Personality: Caelynn is not particularly friendly, but will do her best to get along with people she's expecting to be around a lot. She's more concerned with her own survival over anything more luxurious, like gold and treasure, or like social grace.

Ability Scores: Str 14, Dex 14, Con 17, Int 10, Wis 9, Cha 8
Traits: Hardy, Skinny
Magic Items: Ring of Sustenance - a gift from her father - etched with a pattern of the bitterroot plant, the family's sacred plant.

So Claudine as a paladin has Aura (Good), but the Succubus template gives her the subtypes of Chaotic and Evil. Does that mean she pings to detect evil and detect good? Is she an alignment disco ball? How do you want to handle this?

Edit: Also, the Succubus advancement will have Claudine quickly breaking +5 for Charisma. How do you want to address these overages? Should they roll over to other attributes?

As a Good Incarnate (with detect opposition, so detect evil), the alignment disco ball question will be very important for how she is received by Caelynn at first.

But hey, two people with literal auras of wholesomeness (incarnates ALSO have an alignment aura)

Perhaps Caelynn would see Claudine's soul as a suppressed evil, or one wrapped in a shroud of light/good? I kinda envision that her aura looks something like the photo of the black hole. Darkness in the center trying to consume the light, while the light surrounds the darkness and tries to fill it.

That could work. Might confuse Caelynn at first, but she'll get over it. As long as Claudine fights the Good fight, anyway.

She most certainly does; well on most days.

Orichulum She would have all the auras. There are several times I have encountered this before (other forums have had this discussion too.). Secondly go ahead and break +5. I am giving ability boots to about half the character classes in the game. I have no problem with abilities over 20.

Ermine: You only detect Evil I believe. so you would only know that she has an evil aura. but so do many others. you don't have to trust her right off. Your character may also be aware that auras indicate, they don't dictate. you might have seen another on the path to redemption, that would be something to celebrate.

...that is correct. I should probably sleep; I'm missing very obvious things today.

Edit: Now I'm imagining both Caelynn and Claudine pointing at someone together and yelling "EVILDOER"

@Dieuoffire: thanks for the clarification. If that's the case with attributes, then you may want to update that line in your house rules just in case someone were to overlook your post here.

@orichulum: the +5 was for ability bonuses from my house rules (a fighter 20 cannot stack all 10 ability bonuses in strength.) it stacks with and counts as a magical inherent bonus. I will see about making that more clear.

I also forgot a couple of locations. I am updating that too. I will probably do a final Campaign setting PDF when I get it all together.

Oh, I see. Thanks for that clarification!

Ive been working on my character and have mostly completed the character to the best of my understanding of the house rules. She seems to be a little ball of stats and resistances, but I've tried to keep everything in line. If you have a moment to review, I would appreciate any corrections that need to be made.

Smeowlin: it is a +1 CR. So level 2 character and +1 ECL. The MM uses an npc class (warrior) so they are a cr 1at first level. Githzeri is a template with a cr+1 adjustment.
Normally, monsters with only 1 racial HD replace their racial hit dice with class levels and suffer the LA penalty (or CR in this case). So I believe Smeowlin's character would, as you have indicated, take two class levels with a CR +1 penalty (2 class levels with CR +1) to be ECL 3 to start).

Orichulum: monster levels don't give bonus ability points and feats. it looks good. I like the personality you put into it.
