So I believe he is using his own created gods not the Forgotten Realms ones.

Can we get confirmation on this? From my understanding the note applied only to the hamlet of North who had their own pantheon - if not I need to do a quick fix on my cleric

This is how I read it as well, but you'll have to wait for the DM to return. If I were a betting man, I'd put money that Meredith would be flexible and work with players on the pantheons (where they haven't already been explicitly described).

ApplicationPENDING COMPLETION

right-aligned image


Name: Kiirion Moonstrider
Race: High Elf
Class: Wizard (Necromancer)
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Character Sheet: https://www.rpgcrossing.com/profiler/view.php?id=78572

Appearance: Kiirion is average in height and thin of build. His long blue hair is usually a mess, but somehow never manages to get in his face. His eyes are seafoam green and flecked with gold. His skin is pale in color, scarred and blemished from his long years, the most prominent marking being an X shaped scar on his face, which goes all the way from forehead to underneath each eye. His default expression makes him look sad and lonely and when he smiles it never seems to reach his eyes.

Kiirion likes to wear monochrome colors, mainly black and gray. He is usually seen wearing black pants, a gray tunic top, black boots, and his favorite long black hooded coat with it's half a dozen inside pockets. When feeling nervous or overwhelmed, Kiirion will wear the hood up as if it's some sort of protection. His most common fashion accessory is his familiar a weasel named Filia. She likes to drape herself around his neck like a scarf, or curl up inside his hood. He carries a leather satchel which has been dyed a mottled gray and black where he carries most of belongings. His spellbook, components, and arcane focus he hides in his coat's inner pockets. On the back of his right hand, always hidden by a pair of gloves, is the brand of a human skull, marking him as a Necromancer.

Personality:
1. I feel tremendous empathy for all who suffer. Despite the reputation that Necromancers get, Kiirion isn't cruel or merciless in any way. He studies the dead and undead because he believes that the more something is studied and more it is understood, the better he can make it. He wants to stop people from dying and put the undead back to rest. Believing that the best way to do that was to become what other people consider a monster. In reality, Kiirion's biggest weakness is the fact that he cares too much about other people and not enough about himself. He doesn't care about his own safety, and would much rather other people were taken care of than himself. He put himself into isolation so that the people around him didn't come to harm because of what he is even more so than he did to be able to work in peace. If it weren't for Filia as his constant companion and reminder, he would frequently forget to eat or sleep.

2. I am working on a grand philosphical theory and love sharing my ideas. Though Kiirion chose isolation, that doesn't mean he dislikes the company of people. He is incredibly awkward and uncomfortable around them now, but still wants to be near them. He's quiet and doesn't like to start conversations, but if you talk to him first, he'll talk back. Get him on a subject that he's passionate about and you'll never hear the end of it. Getting him to talk lets people see what he may have been like before his isolation, but only in glimpses. That person is long gone and will likely never return. What you're left with is a quiet, lonely, and very misunderstood Wizard. As uncomfortable as it makes him, now that he's come out of isolation, Kiirion will take any chance to be near people and avoid solitude.

Hey everyone. To answer the Deities question. I am, indeed, super flexible. If there's someone in particular you would like to use, by all means use. If there's a specific question regarding mechanics with the Deities just ask. I did post the 11 from the North hamlet in the starter information,though I have not put a lot of focus on any of them in particular for the campaign. I hope that helps a bit. Tomorrow is my sister's burial (It's been a long week) and I appreciate everyone's patience while I've been offline. Typically I am a daily poster, frequent updater and always around to answer questions within hours of someone asking. As life returns to normal for my family, I am sure my presence here will too. =D Thanks again for all the warm wishes and thoughts!!
Meredith

Off-topic, sorryFor my fellow newcommers to RPGX:

try using this site to resize the pics in your apps so they aren't so huge and use the <imgr> or <imgl> to have the words format next to it. (used <> for [])
<imgr> (pic URL) </imgr>example
It makes the app look nicer and easier to read

So this is particularly interesting! I love the setting this is taking place in!

Character Creation
right-aligned image

Pending Completion

Name: Orthellion
Race: Elf (Wood)
Class UA Ranger (Hunter's Conclave)
Alignment: NG
Character Sheet Link: Orthellion Character Sheet

Appearance: Orthellion is average in height with a somewhat average build that's more on the leaner side. He has wiry but dense muscles underneath his clothing from his time in the wilds. He has well groomed shoulder length black hair that's parted to reveal the characteristic ears of his race. And although there are no scars on his face, there are small pock marks one can notice if they look closely from a few run ins he had in his past. His face is somewhat narrow with strong jaws and high cheekbones. Many would say that Orthellion, like all elves, is incredibly handsome. In human standards however, to his brethren elves he is average in looks.

He often wears clothes of a darker variety more out of necessity than anything else. Dark greens and blacks are his go to since it allows him to easily blend in with his surrounding. He wears simple leather armour dyed black with dark fur-tipped cloak. His attire when he's not out in the wilds shifts drastically however, his clothes becoming far more vibrant and colourful, as though compensating for the dark colours he constantly has to wear when outside of civilization.

Personality:
"I Believe anything worth doing is worth doing right. I can't help itI'm a perfectionist."
Orthellion is a perfectionist indeed. Ever since childhood the mantra that he should give his all to anything he did was constantly repeated by his parents over and over. And he took it to heart. If he doesn't believe that he'll do his best on a project or a goal, he won't bother doing it since believes not giving one's best is disingenuous and an insult to those who do. He's also very open about what he can and cannot do, and will openly say he can'tt do something without shame. In his yes, pretending to be able to do something and not doing it to perfection is far, far worse.

It's this mindset that makes him such a deadly user with his bow, considering he practices with it every chance he gets. But just as well, the environment around him has also shaped this trait of his where he has become one with the land. The need for survival beyond the boundaries of civilization forced him to apply his perfectionism in finding ways to live, and what better way than observing what animals did in their natural habitat. Thus, in a way he has become almost one with them, a sort of kindred spirit, embracing the wild and throwing off the shackles of civilization. Downside to this however is that he is now a bit awkward when in towns or cities, having now lost his sense of social propriety.

"I don't part with my money easily and will haggle tirelessly to get the best deal possible."
Out in the wilds, money is hard to come by. Coinage can be earned hunting and selling furs and meats, but only a scarce amount when compared the amount of supplies that Orthellion needs. Thus, this caused him to develop a sort of mentality where he has to keep all of his coins and try to get the best deal that he can. He haggles tirelessly, often going on for so long that he'll eventually wear the sellers out and force them to accept his deal, or try to persuade them via other means. And as much as he'll haggle to get a great price for something he's trying to sell, he loathes to buy anything except the barest of necessities and even then he will haggle. He realizes his attachment to coin may not be exactly the healthiest thing for him, and there's little use for it beyond civilization, but he enjoys hoarding it nonetheless.

Hi everyone. Just an update. Life is finally returning back to the normal grind for me. I've been updating the private messages i've had the last couple weeks and will start thoroughly going over apps, I'm really sorry to have lost anyone's interest while I've been gone. The deadline will be extended until Feb 1st so that I can make up some of this lost month. I can't believe It's been 16 days already... I feel like I've only been absent a day or so. Thank you for being patient with me. Im really looking forward to starting this adventure. But I don't want to cut short any character creativity because of being gone and not answering any questions.

Meredith
