Using the alternate backstory generator provides stat bonuses but we will still be using the standard array or point buy for character creation, correct? There are a lot of paladins and not many clerics. I could go with a war cleric with this background pretty easily too.

Use the standard array or point buy to set your ability scores and then choose options from the backstory generator to final ability scores. You don't need to roll any dice.

I'll close applications in about 48 hours.

Yeah, I've been posting almost exclusively from my phone for the past two weeks. You aren't kidding.

Apologies about the delays. I went looking through the backgrounds again to see if criminal or artisan would work better and then I got distracted exploring other new things from 5e. Between that and prepping for moving in June, I keep running out of time. Quick question, is background more history or what you turn to in between adventures? Eragunde was formerly an alchemist working with a raiding party of her people. Then her redemption began and she has put that life behind her.

Gin can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe its just the background/backstory. So you could be a retired soldier but still have the trait were current military recognize your (past) service and help you out. Even a person leaving their past behind them still lived that life and so have contacts and skills from it.

It's more your history. However, it could be something you return to in your downtime between adventures. It would depend on how the campaign is structured. In the case of this campaign, it will likely be something that was in your past.

So I banged my head up against a wall with Eragunde forever and I finally gave up on her. So I've cobbled together two apps, a married couple by the names of Magnus Steelchant and Durana Forgebane. They're apart at the moment due to a lover's quarrel so you can pick whichever you find more interesting (if either). 'Tis not my best work, but it's 4 a.m. and I need to sleep now.

Applications are now closed.

Thanks for everyone who expressed interest.

I'll try to have the selections made by the end of the weekend.

Since you expressed interest before and my time zone makes it a bit difficult for Northern American players, yes. But yours will be the last one I consider.

Thanks. I fell asleep while typing it up last night and finished during lunch today. I'll upload it as soon as I get home from dinner.
