If I work on an application tonight and make sure I get it in ASAP, will I still be eligible to play? I understand the deadline is today, I just wanted to make sure. I've decided today to try and get back into this forum and I'm new to D&D 5e. I would love a chance to be part of your game.

Don't stress over it. If you don't make it in time, I'll have you as backup in case someone in another group drops, or the like.
Or, for a very unlikely group 4.

Character Application
right-aligned image
Credit dragonsparkz
Name: Torryn Mightymaw
Race: Mountain Dwarf
Class: Barbarian
Alignment: Neutral Good

Background: Folk Hero (I plan to customize it using the PHB rules)
Traits: If someone is in trouble, I'm always ready to lend help.
I watch over my friends as if they were a litter of newborn pups.
Ideal: Respect. People deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. (Good)
Bond: I protect those who cannot protect themselves.
Flaw: I get offended when people donít want my help.

Appearance: Torryn is fairly large for a dwarf, both on the taller side and broad shouldered. Her pale, freckled complexion marks her as one of the shield dwarves of FaerŻn. She has strawberry blonde hair with a braid on either side of her face, and half of the rest her hair is pulled into a ponytail.

Personality/Backstory: Torryn grew up with her father and twin younger brothers. She often had to rescue them from the messes they made for themselves. Because of this, she has a strong protective instinct for anyone she considers family (which includes actual family, friends, and that urchin on the street she just met). She often accompanied her friends when they would meet new people, just to make sure nothing shady happened, and soon she started getting requests for other things. Guard this store from bandits, escort grandma to the next town over. Word spread, and soon it was more than just her friends asking. Before she knew it, Torryn found herself working as a bodyguard. But she always had time for her friends and those who needed protection the most. She has a kind heart but will unleash her fury on those who threaten her family.

Notes: Iíd like for Torryn to be a cousin of the Rockseeker brothers. Easy buy in, and it gets us in a place where she can show her protective instincts. If the bond I currently have isnít okay, Iíll change it to have something to do with the Rockseeker brothers.

About Me: Just hoping that you as DM can keep the adventure moving since PBP can be prone to trail off. I love roleplaying, but Iím not sure how much diplomacy Iíll be engaging in as a barbarian. Although, sheís a fairly nice barbarian, all things considered. I love building characters, but usually Iím more focused on getting the build to perfectly reflect my character concept rather than min-maxing.

Posting Rate: ~2/week sounds great. I look forward to reading a new post every day, but we as individuals donít have to post that often for there to be something new to read each day.

P.S. I am writing this as my power is out from a cold snap.

Welcome you two.

@Runestone525
-Faen sounds like a sweetheart! I can't wait to make his life even worse Let's hope he eventually finds peace.
-The only Druid so far!

@AG128L
-I like the idea of Torryn being cousin to the Rockseeker's. Sure, let's work with that!

We should be ready to go. Just waiting on my friend MisterKent.
They were our forever DM. I wanna repay them by running a game in which they can participate too.
I just never expected LMoP to be as popular still hehe
Don't get me wrong, I am thankful to have so many people intersted. <3

Posting the application as you told by PM. The ability scores were chosen using the point buy method and the custom origin simply changes the +2 charisma and +1 Int of the race to a +2 Widom and +1 Cons. Sotrywise I intend to simply have the character be in the starting point of the adventure because of pilgrimage, this way the character history can fits with whatever works best for your plans. Hopefully I get to play.

Application
right-aligned image

Name: Omei of Newerwinter
Race: Yuan-Ti Pureblood (Custom Origin)
Class: Cleric (Twilight Domain)
Alignment: Neutral Good
Background: Far Traveler
Character Sheet:
 


Backstory
 


Personality Traits:
I have different assumptions from those around me concerning personal space, blithely invading others' space in innocence, or reacting to ignorant invasion of my own.

I have my own ideas about what is and is not food, and I find the eating habits of those around me fascinating, confusing, or revolting.

Ideals:
I have much to learn from the kindly folk I meet along my way.

Bonds:
My freedom is my most precious possession. I'll never let anyone take it from me again.

Flaws:
I pretend not to understand the local language in order to avoid interactions I would rather not have.

Appearance:
Omei is a tall, slightly too skinny Yuan-Ti Pureblood. He has raven black hair and patches of scales on his forehead, in the sides of his neck and mid-face. His eyes are snake-like, mint green and a distinctive scar crosses the right side of his countenance.

He usually wears a a lightly adorned gray mantle with a white hood over his leather armor and simple dark trousers.

Sources:

1. Race: Volo's Guide to Monster p.120 (Yuan-Ti Pureblood), Tasha's Cauldron of Everything p.7 (Custom Origin)
2. Class: Tasha's Cauldron of Everything p.34-35 (Twilight Domain)
3. Background: Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide p.148 (Far Traveler)

About the Player:
I am a new player with very few games to count (none of them in this adventure - Lost Mines of Phandelver) so I wish to experience a little bit of everything DnD has to offer. The idea of having an efficient character is appealing to me, but not the idea of having a character that is good in everything so I would put myself as more of a casual player.

I expect from a DM a balance of combat and roleplaying and wish only for you to not use history circumstances to negate player success. For example (mild horror history), I played two games in which my character succeed in charisma checks to avoid certain conflicts, but in one of the games the DM made some random stone hit a guard to initiate the conflict either way while in the second game the DM outright ignored my success (despite himself having stated that I had succeeded). I fell like it was useless to have any of the successes and it really killed my investment in the games.

Posting Rate: Any.

-Welcome.
-Oooh, a Yuan-Ti. Never had one in a game, looking forward to have Omei in a group.
-Successes are successes in my book. Someone in the groups I'm running managed to intimidate a group by rolling high enough. I like different approaches to combat, and if diplomacy is the way the group wants to go, I am more than willing to adapt.

Thank you and I confess that I only choose this race for the possibility of playing a character who ran from a bad path and decided to change his life. It was Yuan-Ti or Drow for the idea, but since I play with a Drow in Baldur's Gate III this time I choose snake-people.

By the way I edited the application just to make some grammatical corrections. Thought it was fair to say it here.

And you have no idea how much of a relief is to hear about this succes of a group you are a running. One of my two that where invalidated was a Intimidate Check in Avernus. I had a Bard that was separated from his group in a camp of some kind of lizardfolk-like monster native from the Plane of Fire and even then managed to intimidate the three devils that ran the camp. It was a success in a high DC and a moment that took some good thinking RPwise. It felt epic, until the DM made the devils start discussing in Infernal and ultimately take an decision like they were not intimidated. Little detail: my character could speak Infernal. I didn't even had the chance to intervene and try another test. As my character was quite roleplay heavy (and not a horny Bard) it felt like the best successes I could have would just amount to nothing.

Application
right-aligned image
Petyr

Name: Petyr Blackwater

Sheet:
 

Race: Human Variant (Tethyrian)

Class: Bard

Alignment: Neutral

Background: Entertainer
  • Traits: I love a good insult, even one directed at me.
    I like to read and memorize poetry. It keeps me calm and brings me fleeting moments of happiness.
  • Ideal: People. I like seeing the smiles on people's faces when I perform. That's all that matters.
  • Bond: I want to be famous, whatever it takes.
  • Flaw:I talk to the spirit of my sister that no one else can see.
Personality: Petyr is compassionate. He tries to see the potential in everyone. Petyr tends to ignore the unpleasant. He is a bit on the idealistic side intellectually but when the rough decisions come he tends to go with what's pragmatic; you could say he talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk.

Appearance: Petyr stands at 5'8", weighing at 155#. He has Black Hair, Blue Eyes, and a Complexion that is pale and tans to dusky. His favorite color is purple and he often wears clothes of the various shades of it.

About the Player: I've been playing since the early 80's. My home group only plays DND (I DM) or Shadowrun (which my friend Jake DMs). I have the core books of so many systems I couldn't tell you how many. Unfortunately, I can never convince them to try anything else (but they did one session of Earthdawn- original edition).

What do I expect: If you set a 1/week post rate and a player hasn't posted then you move on. Waiting on players and slowing down post rate is one of the killer on PBP games from my experience on the Shadowrun forums. To me interparty verbal arguments is ok but actual combat is a no no (unless evil party and the group has approved of fighting before the game started). Rulings should be as close to the rules in the book as possible; if you have house rules, they should be clearly stated up front. If you make a mistake as GM, don't kill yourself about it... it happens. I am more of a ROLLplayer than ROLEplayer but I expect a hefty bit of both. And don't forget them Traps and puzzles. A sprinkling of them is always fun.

Posting Rate: No less than 2/week is my preference. Can post every day.

Note: Though my sheet shows stats as of standard array, I would prefer to roll. I love letting Lady Luck decide whether it's good or bad.

@1Skell
-It would have been understandable if the lizard-like enemies wouldn't be able to understand, but if they spoke the same language then??? It happens sometimes I suppose. We have an OOC thread where eveyone is free to yell at me in case I mess up. (it already happened roflmao)

@Shula
-Welcome!
-Not sure if this might be the group for you. At the moment I'm doing a weekly update, since things have been a bit troublesome for some of the members. I'll write you down of course though.
-I can try to run a solo campaign for you if you want daily posting; Throwing that out there as a possibility. Bad Decha, bad. Don't take on more than you can handle aaaaaaah

I prefer to play- if once a week posting is all there is, then once a week it is.
I believe my app is complete. Let me know if there is anything else you want.

My point exactly and that is the kind of thing that was missing in that game.

I meant to ask, was it okay that I rolled my ability scores? I did it through DnD Beyond while I was making my character sheet. If you'd rather I rerolled here when we get started, I don't mind.

I can help with that one. Here is the offical help page on it, but here's the quick and dirty version:

1. At the top of your screen, click the "tools" dropdown button.
2. Under the gray "Character Databases" header, click "My Characters". Be careful NOT to click "My Characters (Old)"
3. A paragraph or two down the page, you'll see "New Character Sheet".

From there you can probably figure out the rest, but if you run into any more hang-ups, don't hesitate to ask!
