Hey Moon, I'm finished except for the PC relationship part. I think I need to wait for more people to flesh out their apps before I tackle that.

Let me know if anything doesn't jive.

Thanks

Sorry to dredge this up. But it's worth recognising that Atheism is a functional term here, but it's used in an atypical way. Instead of rejecting the existence of the entity "God" it's a rejection of the godhood of the entity.

In other news, I am returning to redo my application now.

If you've got the time MoonZar, I'd like to hear a bit about the position of the Night elves within the realm. You say they're better integrated than the Day elves.

Do you have much defined by way of their culture?

Kalvalas (night elves) is not part of the empire, they are the equivalent of wood elves, that live in small communities in trees. They have dark skin and are CG, they are lead by a Monarchy Theocracy following the goddess of night and dreams called Alashra.

A while back they were at war with Patrenia because they started to invade their forest and chop down a lot of trees. It was resolved with a treaty of peace and a settlement to share the resources of the forest responsibly. The night elves have an ambassador in Patrenia at all time.

How would you describe the cloak and dagger environment with the death of the empress?
I was also thinking of making a bastard child spy master in grooming for Cornaya who would be my characters mark but also love. Up till then he has balanced his lies and love but now with the death of the empress he is forced to make tough choices.

@ALL

Good question for everybody. Here's a sneak peek of what could happen.

The 4-5 Kings\Queen knows about the will, officially they will support it. Most noble will actually since nobody would benefit from a bloody civil war that could burn half the empire.

The thing is that some powerful nobles, rebels against the empire, other nations not part of the empire, even rich people will see that as opportunities to destabilize the empire for their own gain. People on the will become a target for them, but just the absence of the empress to keep everybody align is enough for those people to make a move.

It can go from, trying to assassinate the people on the will (PCs), to doing something crazy like insulting a duke to trigger a cascade that can lead to war and have somebody else blame for it etc...

This is a powder house ready to explode and I can promise that someone will light it up at some point. They will be no campaign if things stayed quiet. The party will have to complete the trials with that craziness in the background.

Sure that work. Propose something. Helena is an empress, not a queen.

(Application in progress. It's 4AM now, so I'm going to have to return to write up my actual character later. Hopefully the history that led up to her birth will give you an idea of the challenges she is going to face.)

Kieyenna
Daughter of Mirrendier, of Kalvalas Blood; Daughter of Adelaide, of Human Blood
Touched by Alashra

Details
left-aligned image
Age: 28; Race: Half-Elven
Class: Investigator (Can't find a PFSRD link, as it's got Golarion copy-written material. A short discussion is below.Tekritanin Arbiter, Archive of Nethys Link, not a sticking point)

Personality:
Kieyenna is a playful, but rarely exuberant, taking her pleasure from the story or scene she creates in her mind. The sort to observe events with a wry smile, or to mutter a joke to the person standing next to her during the mundane events of court.

Appearance:
Taller than average, slimmer than average, but neither really worth commenting on. The white hair, dark skin, orange eyes and pointed ears however, are frequently commented on by humans.

The Trials: Though the controversy of Kieyenna's birth had largely drifted into irrelevancy by the time she was old enough to understand it, she does know about it, and as a student of diplomacy Kieyenna knows both how fraught with trouble the current political climate is. She wonders what the empress' motives were in choosing her. Perhaps she was chosen as a diplomat, though she thinks there must be better options. Perhaps she was chosen for her links to the the Athenyan crown and the Camoryan court, an attempt at peacemaking, or even antagonising. Perhaps it has nothing to do with the immediate events. Did the empress want her claim to Kalvalas, weak as it was, to annex the kingdom, just another step in her empire conquering the known world, even her death a part of that plan?

Kieyenna's not sure why she was chosen, but she knows that she is now a part of these events, and even abstaining would have ripples. She can't control those ripples by staying away though. Going gives her a chance to influence events.

As for the outcome? Having to answer to nobody sounds nice enough to tempt her, even if she knows the reality is far more complex.

 


Background and Family
Short version, to be fleshed out later.

Kieyenna was born as a legitimate bastard of the king of Athenya's dynasty, and an illegitimate bastard of the Kalvalas one. To avoid giving the Athenya royal family a claim upon Kalvalas lands, and to protect her against being their tool, the Kalvalas royal family cut public ties.

Despite her potential, Kieyenna is reduced to being largely politically irrelevant and she, her mother, and her adoptive father return to his home, Iridya, away from the tyrannical militarism, to one of enlightenment. There Kieyenna is a greater oddity, away from the lands of the dark elves, she becomes something of a curiosity for the court.

A combination of this interest, and her quick wit and charm, leads to her being offered a chance to study at the university, where she studies a broad range of subjects, particularly specialising in training as a diplomatic envoy (The preparation and enaction of treaties, delivering messages, the laws of the different imperial and adjacent nations, languages, customs and such)

You excluded Occult classes, would also exclude the Psychic Sorcerer bloodline?

Yup, no occult and psychic magic. I never saw them in action, and I feel there is enough options with other kind of casters. Thanks.

Work in progress

Application
left-aligned image
Name: Elena Marguerite de Bandeaux
Age: 25
Race: Human
Class: Swashbuckler (Bravo archetype)

Physical Description: Elena is a slender young woman, boasting far less of the curvature possessed by her mother or sisters. Fair of skin, she keeps her golden hair short to avoid being grabbed in a duel, and out of the way of her ice-blue eyes. Despite being spurned by her sisters for her tomboyish behavior, Elena is every bit a fashionista as the other female de Bandeaux; she simply shows it in the form of elaborate hats and tabards instead of dresses.

Personality: Due to placement in the family line, Elena grew up fairly care free and fully able to choose her lot in life. This "devil-may-care" attitude has never left her, and if anything it's only grown stronger since she entered adulthood. Her 'profession' as a master swordswoman gave her an avenue to express her feelings and emotions, and she loves nothing more than the adoration and roar of the crowds. However, it's also fairly easy to push Elena to anger: just insult her family, especially her sisters, and then see how fast her blade comes at your throat.
