Trug

Name: Trug
Race: Half-orc
Class(es): Barbarian/Fighter
Brief one sentence summary of your character: Orphan, sort of.

Background: Born like most half-orcs, but he grew up tall and with muscle. His father, an orc raider, his mother a human. She cared for him and loved him. The problem was when he went out to play. This was a human village and he was not. The human boys always gave him a hard time and at first fights happened often. They soon learned they could not beat him, so they found a way to really hurt him. They would not play with him. His mother kept him home to be the man of the house teaching him all that she could. The older villagers would treat him well, but at an arms length.

His mother became ill for many months with him the only one to care for her. It became spring, with the sun shining and a warm breeze when she closed her eyes for the last time. Now he had nobody.
With nothing but his clothes he left. He did not look back, nor did he have a heavy heart for the only home he had ever had. His only thought was of his mother. The ground was dry and his feet raised puffs of dust as he turned a bend in the road, and the village was no more.

He was looking to his left and his right to find the noise he was hearing. It did not take long to understand it was his empty belly. Several days with no food can do that to you. Weary and hungry caused him to stop and knock on the great doors a an obscure monastery. Asking for work so he could get some food, rather then trying to take it put him in good with the abbot. Given food in return for work they allowed him to study in the evenings filling his days and his heart. These were good men who looked not at ones face but at their hearts. Here he learned to fight. They, the monks and the abbot, helped him develop his best abilitys. Strength, of the orc, and combat, of the human fighter. When they could teach him no more, he had to leave.

In his travels he met many good men, one was a human named---, now what was it? Ho yes Hubert! Yes that was it. A healer, and a good one. He took care of some, ahh, scrapes(?) Trug had. They shared a meal then went their own ways. Hope he is well.

Then their was that tiefling. Can't remember his name, but a fine little fellow. Seemed to be happy all the time.

So many good guys, But Trug heard of some not so good guys to.

Personality: Quiet and reserved. He appears to be in deep thought most of the time. Mostly he listens, and does not do harm. But if it is against him, a child or anyone not capable of defending themself watch out. He will lose his temper quickly and with a deep throated growl, go to their defense with anything at hand.

Misc. (Whatever else you want to throw in): Appearance: Slightly tall, and and heavily muscled, Klug may be bigger then most half-orcs. His skin although green has a touch of brown which deepens with the sun. He has a small patch of hair on top of his head which he parts and lets grow long down each side. Scars cover some of his body, mostly his face and hands yet he does not look battle worn.

Allright, now that the "fervor" of applications has subsided, I'll be doing some reviews. These are my thoughts and reflections. I will also be linking the current party to your applications for their feedback as well, though I suspect their comments will come filtered through me instead of direct.

Brightheart

BrightheartName
Brightheart

Race
Human

Class(es)
Sorcerer(Rakshasa Bloodline if important)

Brief one sentence summary of your character
Charming magical explorer. No real aim in life but to explore and grow more powerful and knowledgeable.

Background
There is something beguiling about Brightheart. He never seems too hurried or too aloof. Always knows what to say to get his way. He draws people into his personality, giving them attention and creates a sense of exclusivity.

Born in a glittering family of sorcerers, those expertly selected for their own beauty or magical prowess. The family wasn’t particularly wealthy, simply following the prescriptions of one old diviner some several generations before Brightheart. They never wanted for money or food or clothing. There was “always money” somewhere and Brightheart learned from an early age, most of it was probably plucked by his mother and grandmother’s taste in art and even keener taste in wealthy suitors. The men in his family were often seen as overly aloof and foppish to some, but they were always magically gifted.

Around age ten Brightheart would take to the streets. His magical potential already budding. A few adjustments to someone’s perception, a cleverly placed lie and he would peddle off stolen wares. By fourteen he discovered that people loved attention from someone who seemed confident. Fifteen, he was a heartbreaker. Eighteen he had taken up focusing on married couples, partly out of curiosity about what it was like and partly as practice for his more magical machinations.

One time too many he would come home with a bloodied lip and his mother, now late middle aged would shake her head, patch him up and offer a warning, “We may be gifted but we aren’t immortal.”

Age twenty he felt the need to go exploring. His father decided he would accompany his child. Brightheart figured it was due largely to the sordid affair with one of the town’s priests. And that Brightheart was going to have a younger sister birthed not by his mother, but by his grandmother. The duo set out and Brightheart who never knew his father gained a fondness for him. He was, however a show off, a gloat and when drunk, exceptionally handsy. Too Brightheart’s sadness, his father spent most of his time drunk.

It was with sadness that his father took the wrong woman, charmed her and was promptly disposed of by the husband after a drunken brawl that took out the small tavern. Brother had his father’s body immolated as was the custom of his family. Something about never wanting the lineage to be “raised” again.

After his father’s death he returned home, gave the ashes to his mother.

“It was bound to happen,” was all she said. She didn’t weep, she simply held the newborn and her husband’s dead ashes.

Brightheart left that day, out for adventure.

Personality
Brightheart never really had to work a day in his life which means he sometimes comes across as petulant and impatient. He is a doting lover, confident and assured he will get his way, either through his words or his powers. He takes pride in his lineage, but learned from his father and grandfather that showing off isn't always the best way to gain friends. The man seems content surrounded by people, often eschewing his own personal health merely for companionship.

October is here and applications are closed, giving me the weekend to mull over my decision. I'll make an announcement Monday.

Congrats! Sorry i couldn't get it together to refine my application. Sometimes the character idea just doesn't set right.

Hope the game goes great

A couple questions:

I see that your original ad is well over seven years old; is this a new game in the same setting, rather than an 'add on' to an existing game? I assume this is the case since we're staring at Level 1...but you know what they say about assumptions...

Is there an expected end to the campaign, and if so, at what level?

The first post has been updated to reflect the current recruitment for the Unlikely Heroes game. The original Knick Knacks of Doom, which I've redubbed Trinket Hunters, is still running now from when it started in 2012. They are closing in on the end of their campaign. This campaign begins about thirty years after the currently running game should end, in-game time.

Unlikely Heroes is one of many campaigns written for the "of Doom" world and timeline. This campaign does have a written end, which will be 18th to 20th level.
