That is more or less why I put it there. When I talked about convenience, honestly it was for my own, sure, but also yours and the others'.

Application
Name: Stormrider (Qué-Shu Tribe)
Race: Human (Variant)
Class: Barbarian (Path of the Ancestral Guardian)
Personality Traits: Thinking is for other people, I prefer action. I judge people by their actions, not their words.
Bond: I protect those who cannot protect themselves.
Ideal: Respect. People deserver to be treated with dignity and respect.
Flaw: I have a weakness for the vices of the city, especially hard drink.
Background: Folk Hero - I saved people during a natural disaster.

Appearance: 5'10", 170 pounds, with tanned brown skin and dark brown eyes. He is rarely seen without his sword and axe strapped to his back, and even more rarely without a drink when available. He stands with a presence that exudes confidence but humility, strength but vulnerability, and respect. The clothes he wears are simple and unrestrictive, allowing him to move as needed. Tattoos cover his head, upper arms, and chest.
Personality: While he may appear brash, Stormrider is kind and protective. He does not like waiting around or indecisiveness, but would rather just act. While not necessarily immediately trusting of others, he will always respect everyone, and do his best to keep his friends and allies safe.
Backstory: Growing up, Stormrider was always the one to go to for help, willing to do whatever he could. Upon hitting puberty, he started welling up with anger that he couldn't understand. Not wanting to hurt anyone, he learned to feel when it was coming on, and would isolate himself. Eventually he went to an elder spirt guide of his tribe, through who he was able to commune with elder spirits of his tribe. They were able to explain to him what was happening, and with time he learned to control his rage, and call upon it when needed. One day, while out hunting, a windstorm came out of nowhere. Returning quickly to his tribe, he saw a number of buildings on fire, several of them collapsing. Falling into a moment of tranquility, he called upon his rage and rushed in, removing doors and debris, carrying people out of dangers way, and eventually helping calm the fires and protecting everyone until the windstorm was over. He was celebrated by the townfolk, but wanted none of it, and tried to continue living his life as any other villager.

Stormrider thrashed in his bed. Unconsciously he was grinding his teeth, clenching his hands, kicking wildly. His eyes flew open momentarily, the thought "It's happening again" flitted through his mind, and everything went black.

When he could see again, he knew it was different this time. The colors of the field around him were more vibrant, the sounds clearer, the breeze upon his bare chest crisper.

"Let me see that!" cried a voice from behind him, and his eyes flashed briefly as a hand snatched towards him. Realizing it was just Riordan, who had picked up the bad habit of following him, he cooled.

"What're you doing out here, shouldn't you be home doing chores?".

Riordan chuckled and shook his head. Grinning, Stormrider's face changed in an instant, seeing movement in the distance.

"Get out of here, now!" he shouted to Riordan, as he watched the riders closing the distance. Drawing the weapons he didn't even remember having on him, Stormrider prepared for the bandits, not expecting them this soon.
Again, everything was different. He had always been alone before. His heart hammered in his chest, and time seemed to slow down. Each hoofbeat thundered in his ears, the sound of steel reverberated through the air. Reaching into himself, he called on the rage that had already started to bubble up. Glancing to make sure Riordan was running, he threw himself into battle with the first rider. Deflecting a blow with his axe, he used his sword to cut the banding holding the horse's saddle. As he did so, he ran to move in between the riders and Riordan's path.

In his rage, he didn't feel the cut of steel into his flesh, didn't taste the blood in his mouth, didn't notice the sweat in his eyes. But he did hear the arrow - an arrow? Everything was different. Looking down, expecting to see a shaft protruding from somewhere in his body, he looked around in confusion. Realization dawned on him in an instant, and time seemed to come to a standstill. Turning towards Riordan, watching the arrow in flight, it's trajectory exact, Stormrider let out a primal scream. Emotion pouring out of him, something happened. The tattoos on his body started glowing, and he watched, almost as through somebody else's eyes, as those spirts that had always guided him manifested, and in an instant had surround Riordan. The arrow hit the newly formed beings and clattered to the ground harmlessly. Panting, Stormrider sank to his knees, as the guardians glided over to him. Each of them, one by one, touched his head, then faded back into him, one tattoo at a time fading back to the normal color of the ink. As the last one returned to him, Stormrider awoke, drenched in sweat.

Everything was different.



Edited to update race to Variant Human

application= Complete
right-aligned image

Name: Auberon leafweave
Race: Wood Elf
Class: Druid - Land (Grass)
Background: Hermit - medicine , swap religion for nature

Personality trait: I am utterly serene, even in the face of disaster.

Ideal: Greater Good. My gifts are meant to be shared with all, not used for my own benefit.

Bond: I'm still seeking the enlightenment I pursued in my seclusion, and it still eludes me

Flaw: I harbor dark, bloodthirsty thoughts that my isolation and meditation failed to quell

Back story:
A warrior veteran turned retiree after only a short career in the great elf legion. After serving only a short time , Auberon found the strife of war and duty to much for his gentle soul. And so he left to find peace within himself and turned to a life of solitude. There he found his connection with the wild.

He lives on a secluded acerage deep within the woods, out of sight. There he has spent his life offering kinship to other travelling men of the woods. He offers aid and medical attention to those who needed it, Both humanoid and beast alike. He trades and barters from time to time when travellers cross his path. More so though he is self dependant with a high skill of survivability. Here he harvests crops, hunts to better manage conservation in his region, fishes from the local water sheds and even cares for a host of bees to produce himself honey.

Having now spent the majority of life away from society, he has found inner peace.
But a pressure looms in the air, A dark unsettling pressure. Beasts of the night are more and more common. Their presence more known and vileness more dangerous. They trek further to encroach on mans civilization and do so with no respect or care of all that is good and peaceful. Mother Nature will not stand for it.


Appearance:
Braided and loose brown hair combined, left messy and long. His face brandishes the same type of goatie.
He has Hazel eyes which almost seem to swirl with a dull shade of yellow. He is slender, but with broad supportive shoulders.
He dons bark and hide armor, fastenned by more of the same material. He walks with a straight staff of impeccably hard wood, fashioned of his own craftsmanship. A true manifestation of one with nature.

Personality:
Very positive but in a calm, quiet way. He is reassuring to others, offering support and aid. He is a peaceful and soulful being, often reminiscing or referring to nature in his speak. He is very connected and rooted with Mother Nature and her woodland beings. He tends to shy away from conflict, but not out of fear for himself, rather for others, as his powers have manifested to great strength. You can often find him side tracked, off path, communicating with creatures, insects and plants.

Auberon is not one for dramatics, an so shy’s away from using his magic in grand Genstures. Rather, he conserves his abilities and mostly uses them for good and independence.

Ah, a Dragonlance game! Does that bring back memories from 25 years ago...

Please, consider me also. I will be submitting a kender monk! Because I suddenly find the idea of a taunting little devil bashing around in a hoopak unresistable.

Two questions, if I may:
- Is there a specific way to create stats?
- Are Tasha's monk abilities allowed?

Hmm... It would mean I have to hurry up quite a bit depending on my free time in general, but I do not have a problem going with what the majority wants.

Dragonlance! I loved those books!

Arkanis apologies if this has been asked before but would a magic using subclass (like the Arcane Trickster or Eldritch Knight) 'count' as a member of White, Red or Black Robes?

I should certainly be able to finish the RP sample until then, so no problem for me too.
