Instead of the mystic, I will stick to a more traditional character: The arcane trickster rogue.

Name: Weston the brown.
Race: Tinker Gnome.
Class: Arcane Trickster Rogue.
Appearance: Brown eyes, skin, and hair. About average in weight and height for a gnome. His noee, ears, and chin are very round, as are his eyes, His fingers are long and thin.
Backstory: His childhood was a bit dull, spent mostly fishing in the creek (there were no fish to be caught; it was just a way to spend time with his friends.) He didn't apply himself very hard to any subject in school, nor to his chores at home, and tended to doze off during temple services. He was supposed to be apprenticed to an alchemist, but, due to concern that he was careless and would cause disasters, he was instead put to work assisting the man who made the glass bottles which alchemical ingredients are stored in. He discovered that the cutting tool used to trim the edges of jars could be used to make tiny, silent holes in windows....perfect to slip a wire in and slip the hook holding the window shut! After practicing on his own house when no one else was home, and finishing his training, he gathered what supplies and wealth he could and set off to make his fortune.
Background: Artisan (glass blowing.)
Alignment: Neutral, with slight chaotic tendencies. No real desire to hurt anyone, but a bit greedy.
Goal: To become wealthy.
Ideal: He starts out with wealth as his main idea, but during play he might develop actual principles.
Flaw: A bit lazy; does not try very hard at honest work.
Weakness: Not accustomed to violence.
Bond: He truly loves his parents and does not realize how much he is hurting them by not making anything of himself. He tries hard to conceal from them his true plans...they think that he is simply a journeyman artisan.
Attitude: Tends to complain when given actual work to do.

I'm sorry for being so bitter. I guess most of it is a lack of faith in myself, or my fear of rejection has hit emotionally unstable levels. None of it is stuff I should be bringing around here.

@DeepFriedWyzard
Hello! I don't think we even have "rejection" here, what's not fitted to one thing is perfect to another. And when we get a "no" in return to something we did, it's just a great opportunity to find out what would be better to fill that niche. In the end, it's always about personal tastes when we get to RPG. I'm sure you'll find a very nice group that will have the same way of thinking as you, sometimes it just takes a little bit of patience.

@Ericg1s, So if you just want to select a free feat for Weston, you'll be finished for your app.

Edit: Also, building your character in a D&D 5e charsheet and posting the link would be much appreciated.

Brother, it's a hard time for everyone right now.

If you need to vent, vent.

Though a tread in the general discussion section would probably be the appropriate place to do so on this site.

Thanks for being so accepting. Even if I don't get picked, I should still put in the effort, of course. Even friendly competition scares me.

Race: Human, (src: Eberron: Rising From the Last War)Mark of Sentinel
Class: Fighter (Eldritch Knight or (src: Xanathar's Guide to Errythang)Samurai)
Profile: 6'1'' // 211 lbs // Dark skin // Black hair // Blue eyes

It is, if you mean the Revised Ranger.

Revised is my default.

DeepFried - I like what you have so far, but I'd like you to add a race and class to meet my (Foolishly not written down) minimum expectations for an app.

After you add those, you'll be moved up to 'Completed' and be under serious consideration.

and i can see how putting in this kind of overly characterized backgrounds can feel like you're kind of stroking your own ego before we can even get together and collaborate (if that's what you feel).

I sometimes feel that i'm stroking my ego just to have my hopes dashed and my character erased when i don't get picked in the end.

a lot of times its hard for me to reuse a character that was never used like that, because his/her true purpose was never realized and so their concept falls back into half formed.

I try to push past that feeling and treat it a bit like a job, to show my skills and if i don't get picked.. to maybe if i have to let something i created die.


also i'm posting my interest, i forget if i missed the deadline but i'll try to put my app in tonight.

I appreciate being understood, no hard feelings to anyone doing things their own way. Still working on mine.

After a thorough, brain-searing scan, I settled on Human Fighter

I'll add more detail tomorrow.

A oldie and a goodie.

Edit: Everything looks in order for your app. Right now I'd say you're basically in. I'll make my decision within the hour.

"Make my decision within the hour." LOL. You're totally in.

Oh, also Victor needs a free feat. Don't forget that bit.

Besides that, any as-yet undetailed specifics for characters will get ironed out once approvals finish & the game starts.

I don't think i made the cut off but i'll put my app in right now just in case there's room for me.

Name: Baelin Amanore

Race: Elf (Drow)

Class: Sorcerer (Shadow)

Feat: Extra Cantrip: Primal SavagerySpell Sniper

Appearance: A slender, grey skinned Drow with grey-blue eyes. Average height and weight for a Drow. Slash marks across his neck and face.

 


 


 



Background: Performance, InsightCarnival Folk

Alignment: Chaotic Good

Goal: To live comfortably without fear of ridicule or hostility. (To find acceptance)

Ideal: Truth is the most important thing to me. (To give and to receive).

Flaw: My fear of rejection keeps me from making close relations with people, which is made worse by my silent nature.

Bond: Carnival folk, misfits and underdogs are his closest bond. (He feels that he can be vulnerable with them, with his mind if not with his pockets).

Baelin's mother rejected him, he is trying to move on. (Baelin knows of his father's fate but has never met him. He assumes their meeting would be fruitless).

Attitude: Hard working, tries to be helpful and useful. May seem aloof or disinterested but inside is a deeply caring person. If you are trustworthy with him, you'll have a true friend and companion at your side.
