I do have to say that Moon's pictures both at the beginning of this advert and in the game thread do not make the future for our poor beleaguered city look too bright. It might be time to rethink all those real estate investments folks.

See this is why the discerning citizen lives likes a street rat. They can't burn down your home, if you're homeless *taps noggin*

My PC (if admitted) is kind of a young out-of-town vagrant wandering from bar to flophouse, so works for me.

My applied character would be a bit put off by her home being burned down or occupied by sweaty occupying soldiers. That'd be some good roleplay, though. Sometimes you gotta lose something big before you can gain everything.

I believe my application is complete. Fitting an arcane role, but also some short-mid ranged combat. Please let me know if there's any questions!

This seems like a truly epic campaign!

Placeholder for an oracle of life.

I am not sure if you have already answered this, MoonZar, how many years have passed since Gate Pass was conquered (not liberated) by Emperor Coaltongue? You mention „a few decades“, I think. Also, did the city surrender to the Old Dragon‘s forces or was it taken forcibly?

Thank you in advance!

Does anyone want to be friends with a young paladin of Iomedae who grew up in the city?

So we're all pulling an Aladdin here? My Otto basically lives at whatever house he can talk himself in to.

It's possible that Sarielle and Lauds would have met or at least seen each other at the Festival of Dreams each year. As they both live in temples they both might have had roles in the festival and interacted. Besides that Lauds has been kept primarily (but not exclusively) within the temple until six weeks ago after her ordination. After that it is possible she could have encountered anyone else during her travels through the city as a cleric.

@Chrystrom: That would be perfect actually since they were both left at temples as children. They would no doubt find some commonality in that alone. I could see Sarielle looking forward to the festival each year, just so that they can visit some.

And for those interested in the seedier side of Gate Pass, frail con men generally enjoy having muscles in their back pocket...

Finished

Liber
right-aligned image

Name: Liber Garnaut

Age: 24

Race: Human

Class: Magus (Bladebound)

Physical Description: With an athletic figure, Liber has a tall and agile built, with long limbs and a well-proportioned body that the man takes no small deal of pride and care in. A blonde wavy hair cut just short of his shoulders is tied back in a short and baggy ponytail, while loose strands run along the side of his fine jawline. His amber colored sharp eyes along with his perpetual half-smile added to an expression of serenity and calm that the man carried with himself everywhere and in every situation.

Personality: Liber is a calm and analytical person, dealing with situations in a rational manner and rarely letting passion take control of his decisions, favoring the pursuit of the magus knowledge above all. While the man is rather easy-going and friendly with others in most situations, he tends to be brutally honest too, not hiding his contempt and criticism for them, much more those of a simpler or, what he considers to be, uncultured upbringing. Likewise, although this might not make itself apparent from his usual actions, Liber tends to be rather overly-proud about his position in society and abilities, thinking he's naturally destined to accomplish great things in the world.

Living in Gate Pass (Present): Being raised in the household of Bertib Remund, a powerful merchant and a member of the City Council, Liber is often involved in matters of the high society of Gate's Pass. More specifically, the man serves as a personal tutor to the children of the wealthy and powerful families of the city, teaching about matters such as history, science, etiquette, and even dueling, among many others. In such a way, he has many connections inside Gate's Pass, though none as close to the friendship he has with the Remund brother and sister pair, Alcher and Evelyn, heirs to their father's fortune, sharers of much the same principles as him, fierce Gate's Pass loyalists, and whom he had been raised since childhood with. Due to that, the rest of the Remunds consider Liber as part of their own family, something which had allowed him to raise his standing in the city as he grew up, and also avoid capture from the city guard once they started arresting magic users.

In his spare time, Liber puts much dedication into his studies and practice. As a magus, the man had learned the art of sword-fighting very early in his life and likewise had shown great intelligence and talent towards the arcane. Instead of choosing one or the other, though, he decided to find the perfect balance between them and try to achieve the perfect combination of body and mind, the pursuit of such an objective became one of his main drives in life. Although he has no official position, the young magus also takes a particular interest in the politics of the city, often accompanying the Remunds in their official affairs.

Liber's father, Lithhelm Garnaut, works as a merchant under Bertib, his long time friend, overseeing a lot of his operations far from the city proper. The two of them rarely meet, and the magus has a strained relationship with Lithhelm, being able to count on one hand the number of times they meet every year, much less talk at length. What had once been resentment for Liber's gradually turned into indifference, as the relationship between them became one of distant acquaintances rather than that of a son and a father.

As for enemies inside the city, the man had no serious disputes, though he had gotten in confrontations with Gabal's students more than once, ranging from discussion to sparring matches, gathering no small amount of animosity between its members. Although Liber admired the famous evoker for his deeds in defending the city years back, he hardly agreed with his philosophy, thinking that it was humiliating for him to make his disciples work military jobs, much more so for such a low price. The rash personality of the people in the school added to his straight honesty created conflict whenever Liber and any School of War student encountered each other on the streets.

Background (Past): Liber was born to a pair of disgraced Ragesian nobles who had been exiled from their homeland after their family was found to have been in collision with enemies of the empire, more specifically of smuggling contrabanded magic weaponry to whoever paid the highest price. Lithhelm, his father and at the time the third in line for inheritance, was on a business trip with his wife at the time in Gate's Pass and was thusly spared the fate of execution that befell the rest of the family in the capital of the empire. At the time, found with no choice but to seek asylum, the sole surviving member of the noble family was able to acquire such under his good friend Bertib Remund, changing their family name to Garnaut and some years after finally having Liber with his wife. Although the magus himself knew of what fate befell their family, he grew up completely unaware of the specifics, as the matter was quickly swept under the rugs by imperial officials. Whether the claims were true or whether his father knew about their crimes at all, the boy was unable to know the truth, no matter how insistent he was in his questioning or research.

His mother died when he was at the age of 3, as such Liber grew up with little to no memories of her. Around that age, his father also started to distance himself from the boy and became more and more buried in his work over the years. The fate of raising this child fell to the Remund couple, Bertib and his wife Brytha, and their maids. Despite not having any parental figures, however, Liber could hardly complain about his upbringing, as they spared no expenses in raising the boy alongside their two other children, Alcher and Evelyn, who were around the same age as him. The three of them grew up very closely and developed a friendship and relationship that transcended mere bloodlines.

As Liber grew up, his intellect became more apparent to those around him. The boy displayed great talent towards academic matters, and later to the arcane too as they found out. Hiring a private tutor, he was quick to pick up on the wizarding practice over the years, analyzing and learning things with wisdom beyond someone of his age. Despite his interests in magical subjects, however, the boy still refused to become a full-fledged wizard, partaking in physical practices of sword-fighting alongside the Remund siblings, something he became quite proficient with too. It wasn't until his teenage years that he became entranced with the path of a magus, the union of body and mind, physical prowess and magic, and decided to embark on it. Albeit, this time, there was no one to guide him in this pursuit.

It was also around then his relationship with his father became more and more hostile. As he grew up, so did his curiosity about the specifics of his noble descent. Despite that, questioning Lithhelm only brought about increasingly hateful discussions and pursuits of such knowledge on his own also didn't yield any results, the empire seemingly intent on keeping information about the matter hidden. Still, amidst his upbringing in the political scenario Gate's Pass, amidst the powerful people that yielded both authority and power and made the city what it was today, Liber started to yearn for such things for himself. To become something greater, something more. The first step, however, was to find out about his family, what kind of power they had in the past, what they were accused of, and hopefully clear their name, being able to use his noble title again and stand proudly amidst the masses.

As adulthood arrived, his motivations solidified. His knowledge and expertise around both academic and athletic subjects, as well as a newly discovered vocation for teaching, gave him work as a personal instructor for the children of the rich families of Gate's Pass. Likewise, as his and the Remund siblings' interest shifted from juvenile matters to those of business and politics, their relationship didn't distance, and instead, the foundation they had built since they were young started to transform into a cohesive and loyal cooperation in which Liber helped the two of them in negotiating deals and finding business and political and allies for their family. His reputation increased and his career to ascension in the social ladder seemed to be on track, that was until the Immortal Emperor fell, and his identity and talents that had allowed him to rise this far seemed like they would be the cause of his downfall too, as Gate's Pass seemed ready to bend the knee to the Empire once more.

I take offense to that. Grym comes from a very respectable house, he chooses to live on the streets.

Technically speaking Edler has a home with a baker (who I creatively called Baker). But its not his house, and he has no concept of home ownership, just like millennials today!
