I can't very well see others wishing to travel with him if they risk infection.
Why is he leaving his hermitage to come to Phandalin? Is he seeking succor? Also, in a world where diseases can be wiped away with a simple divine spell or a touch from a Lv1 paladin, would the disease be immune to such thing or would he forbid the disease leaving his body due to holy reasons?
If the Cure Disease issue is a problem, how about horrible burn scarring or the like. Clerics could fix him so that everything works but he feels he is horrible to the world, especially if you mix in some guilt. Sort of a phantom of the opera vibe.

You know what, I'll spoiler my idea and Chy can take or leave as he sees fit.

@Retry - It is my intention that the disease is mostly cosmetic (however, I am open to the idea of suffering mechanical penalties if that is necessary or you think it more interesting). I was also sort of going off the assumption that, even if it were contagious, it would only be through direct physical contact; skin-to-skin. Hence, as the reference image shows, the bandaging and top-down dressing. This, too, I don't mind going either way on.

I'm currently brainstorming the private/personal purpose of his presence in Phandalin, but I intended for the overt reason to be that of proselytizing -- general missionary work stuff.

Also, presumably, yes, the disease would be nigh-incurable, even from a divine spell or touch. Although, it could be an interesting twist that, as you say, he holds on to the ailment for religious purposes. I imagined his cult/order's diety would be Tyr, the Wounded God; perhaps it is a "blessing" from him? Again, something I don't mind going either way on.

That does sound pretty B.A. -- not gonna lie. We'll see if the DM approves or not!

@Retry - I have updated / completed my application. Any further edits of it on my end will be grammatical / spelling (but the context will remain the same).

Let me know if I need to make any necessary edits! Otherwise, I thank you for the opportunity and will await the selection date!

Any feelings on either a 'cat' variant of gnome or using the gnome crunch but having her be a spliced gnome catfolk? I was going to add a bit about her cat ears but don't want to break out of FR setting too much. Might adjust my plans for a little backstory here one way or the other and whether or not she's wearing a hat

@SinnerBeta - No worries, you still have plenty of time. I don't close early since I know folks sometimes like to slip under the wire.

@Krazy - You can have her have all the crunchy mechanics of gnome with feline features for cosmetics. Being a wizard and having attended a magic school it can be easily chalked up to a spell/experiment/potion/etc. gone wrong and she never felt like fixing or couldn't fix.

Anything from listed sources. If you wish to try something UA or something from a different source shoot me a PM with what you're planning.

Hey folks!

Tomorrow morning I'll be closing applications. Anyone lurking and waiting to slide in under the wire; this is your time to do so! Same for anyone looking to change a WIP into a completed.

Accepted adventurers will be sent a PM with a link to their group. The first few days will be spent smoothing out any rough edges and getting sheets handled.

Those not initially accepted will be held in reserve in case someone drops right away - which happens, and I'd assume more so now with the world starting to recover from COVID and Outplay launching.

And done, hope I slid in time. I rewrote it like 20 times, but it was always too long, spoiled too much or took too many liberties with the setting. So I decided to leave it short (relatively, it's still a few paragraphs) but sweet so that he has more room to growth and the story can be fleshed out retroactively.

You really did slide in just in time, I'm doing my re-readings now to make my selections.
