OK, I've had a bunch of disparate ideas floating around in my head, and I've finally come up with a story that ties them all together! However, I have a question for PIG regarding application format: regarding the RP samples, would it be acceptable to submit a single, longer piece that combines the "trait" and "secret" expositions? Because I started writing the former, and it kind of organically grew to include the latter

That's fine Bloodcookie, I'll make with what you got. Keep it under 800 words if you haven't finished. If it already is more than that then no worries.

If you want, Hanz, then you can do that. To everyone, choose one application per player though, not more. You can always change the application though.

Whoa! 1153 words, actually lol It's okay, stories get away from you sometimes and start building their selves without you even trying. But when working on RP#2 try to keep it at 800 max. I want to judge everyone on equal merit when I can.

Use this (http://www.wordcounter.net) if you are not using Word or whatnot.

Jayed the Clanless
Race: Gnoll
Class: Magus (Hex archetype)
 



Music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLSOzcEQjiE (To demonstrate his inner drive)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyP0DACgdgc (To demonstrate his desire for purpose and belonging)

Traits: Finding Haleen ; Affable

Appearance and Personality:


Sitting on a bedroll in the flickering firelight Jayed yawns, stretching his lanky legs after a long day of travel. This gnoll is a runty thing, thin and short for his kind, his face a sad history illustrated in scars. He runs a well-used brush through his short, spotted fur "to keep the bugs out" with the same sort of care you'd see in any human at a mirror. Whatever tensions his ropey, muscles carried on the trek ease in the twilight. The eyes, like mirrors reflect the orange light of the fire out from under the red, silk banana wrapped around his head. Otherwise he's attired simply, careworn armor, a fraying loincloth, a well-maintained leather harness with pockets and places for tools.
His ears flick and flutter at the conversations around him attentive but passive. When he smiles it is with his lips and he snorts for a laugh, long ago having learned that his teeth and cackle wouldn't endear him to the Katapeshi. When he knows he's welcome he gently bops his fellow travelers with his snout but otherwise keeps to himself. He speaks sparingly and quietly around humans, trying to compensate for his gruff, deep voice. It's better to conform to human pack rules rather than try to bluster and intimidate them. It's the tallest nail that gets hit after all.

Q: So what's your name?

Jayed...

Q: What's your job here, Jayed?

I'm... uh... here to protect the caravan.

Q: How's a guy like you going to do that?

Uh... well. I'm quick and I bite harder than I look.

Q: When you're not working what do you do?

Look for more work? I have to eat.

Q: What do you do for fun, I mean?

Well, I've always... uh... liked the poi dancers. To watch I mean.

Q: What's with all the pauses?

This isn't my... uh... mother tongue...

Name: Basil ibn Fariq Abdul-Rahim

Race: Halfling

Class: Rogue

Music: Desert Rose - Sting (I picked the song because it fits Basil's back story, but the Arabic influences in the music doesn't hurt.)

Alignment: CG

Traits: Freedom Fighter, Affable

Appearance and Personality:

(First, let me say that if we're all sitting around a fire and food is being made, I wanna be the guy with the stuff for s'mores!)

Basil is a Halfling of taller stature than most, with dark hair and deep blue eyes. He's built lanky and lean, with strong limbs. When wearing his leather armor and blades, he cuts a dashing figure. Usually Basil has a ready smile, but he carries himself with a 'don't touch me' posture and an overt strut of confidence. Perhaps this is why he bears various scars on his body, including one vicious-looking one on the back of his neck.

Coming across as genial to almost everyone he meets, Basil has a way of endearing himself to people. He can say all the right things when he has to, and he knows when to listen. He's also capable of cutting people off without a second thought, but this happens rarely. He treats most of the races with respect, but bears an active prejudice against Chelaxians.

In conversation, eventually Basil will speak about the plight of his fellow Halflings in Katapesh. He'll point out that, proportionately, there are more of his people enslaved in Katapesh than any other race. With anger in his voice, he'll talk about the helpless children separated from parents by Chelaxian slavers, and how even in Katapesh such things are regarded with indifference. By conversations end, Basil may have even the most amoral people questioning the rightness of slavery, or at least questioning how long a Halfling with such vocal opinions can survive in a nation where the slave trade is practiced with impunity.

Wishcrafter was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw this game.
