Shadow of the Brave New World

Game NameShadow of the Brave New World
Game SystemDnD 3.5e Forgotten Realms
ThemeExploration / Invastigation. Some dungeon crawls. There will be rewards for exploring the world and finding its secrets.
FlavourMystery
Plot SummaryIt is year 1372 DR. Over a decade ago Captain-general Cordell of the Golden Company discovered a new land far west from Faerun named Maztica. It is a land of great opportunity and untapped riches for those brave and strong enough to claim it, or a grave for those who are not. Amnian Council of Six made great efforts toward colonization and exploatation of this land, starting at Gulf of Cordell and trying to secure the coastline before other powers in Old World catch up. However for every great change there is also resistance to that change. Natives of Maztica did not offer a warm welcome for new rulers to say the least, and relations have been more and more tense ever since. To make matters worse, recently it turns out that natives and local fauna may prove to not be the only danger of new lands...

Your story begins aboard "Golden Opportunity", a merchant ship belonging to Ophal family of Athkatla. You were hired to assist new governor, Wilhelm de Croux, on a remote island not far from the western coast. What exactly are you going to assist with is unknown to you right now as you are going to be debreifed by governor de Croux upon arrival. The presence of soldiers, weapons and armors on board does not bode well...
Creation rulesSources: SRD only
Level and abilities: 4th level, 38 point buy. I don't have whole leveling planned up, but I expect to end the game around level 6 or 7.
HP: Max at level 1, then max / 2 + 0,5
Traits and flaws: one of each is ok, you can pick from both UA and Eberron ones, but make them relevant to your character!
Equipment: 1 light or medium armor of choice, 2 melee weapons (shields included) of choice or 1 melee and 1 ranged weapons of choice (+1 pack of ammunition). 4 potions and/or scrolls (wizards can add the scrolls to their spellbooks) of choice with max cost of 350 gold each. 2 Magic items with max cost of 3100 each (you still have only 1 piece of armor, same rule for weapons). Thives tools for rogue, holy symbol for cleric and paladin, musical instrument for bards, spellcasting tools for spellcasters, healer's kit for those with heal class skill.
Roleplay:picture of your characters, 1-2 paragraph backstory and personality description.
Post frequency:I would like 1/day, but I can extend that to 1/3 days.

Deadline is due 20.09 (or 09.20 if you are in US)

Remember to add link to character sheet!

Make your applications in one post, please and thank you.

Important note: While playing PbP I prefer something I call "poster rolls". It is a forum rule that says that whoever posts makes all neccessary rolls, for him and others. It significally speeds up combat. For example, player wants to start a grapple. The player rolls his d20 and adds modifiers and rolls d20 for opponent (without modifiers, I add them "behind the screen"). After that DM deems if the action was succesful. Another example is rolling initative, where DM rolls for everybody. That all being said, I would like everyone who applies to write if they would like to use poster rolls in that game.

There questions:

1. What are the rules for character creation?

2. What posting frequency do you expect?

3. Is someone returning to TTRPGs after a break, therefore not remembering all mechanics, acceptable?

3. Of course! I am not picky DM and I would gladly help anyone if there are questions.
Also: Sorry for the inconvinience, I played PbP before but I'm new to this site and didn't know that there will be delay between request and forum creation.

EDIT: Moved some of the stuff to first post because I didn't understand rules (now I do though)

I think 1/3 days is maximum I can do. Still bit busy with RL stuff that actually forced me to quit playing here a few months before...

I'll start cooking some character. Any deadline for application?

Solas
right-aligned image
Name: Solas "The Good"
Race: Troll
Class: Troll (Savage Species, pp200)
Trait: Benefit You gain a +1 bonus on Escape Artist checks to escape a grapple and on grapple checks to escape a grapple or avoid being grappled. Drawback You take a -1 penalty on all other grapple checks.Slippery
Flaw: You are afraid of a particular kind of object, creature or environment, as chosen from the list below. You are shaken if you are aware of the presence of something that would trigger your phobia within 30 ft. The condition lasts until the triggering situation is overcome, or 1d6 rounds if the trigger is an instantaneous event. If the trigger is an object or creature, you become frightened if you touch (or are touched by) the object; or if the creature speaks or makes a cry directly to you.Pyrophobia

Personality: Brought up amongst humans, Solas was taught by the priests to always seek the good in people and be prepared to step up whane facing eveil in all of its forms. this always clashes a bit with his primitive brain that tells him to suspect everyone and take advantage with his brawn at every chance he gets. The priests added to his name the epiteth "The Good", so that he could have a better chance in social relationships and donned every bit of his equipment with icons of Lathander. Nonetheless, he still had to get used to the stares, the fearful murmuring and the hostile reception. Which is why he always has to carefully present his papers from the temple when arriving at any guardpost or city gate.

Background: Found as a baby when a group of paladins was freeing a small village of the nearby monster, the young troll was adopted by the holy warriors that couldn't bring themselves to kill an infant. Brought to the temple of Daggerfell, it caused a lot of anguish as nobody really knew how to bring up a baby Troll. After understanding that meat, even a bit spoiled, was all the infant needed, things got moderately easy.

The priest at the Morninglow Tower tried their best to teach Solas him the dogmas of Lathander and their ramifications, but the youngling proved to be a bit too thick to really understand what they were talking about, so they switch curriculum focusing on human civilization protocols, baking him a sweet meatcake when he first took his first unsolicited bath. The paladins taught him how to fight and when to fight, but he was definetly not suited for the discipline life of a Dawnbringer.

When he was (approximately) eight years old Solas towered almost everyone at the temple in height, was an adept warrior and had learned to peacefully coexist in a human society, so despite not being honoured by any of the official titles of the church of Lathander, he had documentation proving he was an agent working for the temple, and could be sent around the Faerun to assist minor temples and whoever was in need.

Recently he received the duty to escort Governor de Croux to the colonization of a newfound land, and to spread the tenants of the Morninglord (to the best of his abilities) to the natives.

Posting Frequency: usually a post every two days is my average.

What, if any, 3rd party material is allowed?
I might want to be a psychic, if that is permitted.

Ursinorum, your character is intresting so far. I would like to see the sheet though.

As of Ericg1s and Clawsome's question, I have never played with psionics and such if that's what you mean. I am flexible though and if you PM me what you want and it's source (preferably with direct link) then there is a good chance it will be allowed if it's not broken
