I had contemplated a dervish bard for my potential shadowdancer trusting in the arcane abilities to be more usable but it just didn't have the same feel for the character, especially when I wanted faith to be a big part of her as I started putting thoughts together and if it means she doesn't have much in the way of divine spellcasting ability thats not world ending for me so no worries there.

One, I am very happy to hear that. Second, it is not to say that divine magic will not work at all... it will... it is just how should I put it "interesting". The player/character will have a choice and the outcomes will be based on that choice!

Also I do not want you to think that arcane spell casting is without its risks as well... while divine magic may be diminished... arcane magic can be outright hazardous to caster and subject alike.

As I mentioned before, Ravenloft does a good job of flipping the normal Tier system on its head... power comes at a price...

Again, keep up the wonderful work. Nothing is really locked until acceptance and even then the first chapter will be geared towards any adjustment that did not flush out in the initial application phase. I am easy to work with!

Onward!

Cheers, Xian

Please only consider my second app, Rooklyn as an option. I will post an RP sample tomorrow.

Oh, you never mentioned you were starting a game Xian :P

Question, do we have to apply using the 10-Minute Background or can we still apply old school way? Was thinking about taking a stab back at the fun loving Del, but there seems to be a few casters already. So I have another idea brewing...

@kaylara,

It is great to see you here and excited to see your app. As far as a different format, I would prefer the at least the general format is used, but if you need use another format to create I have no issues with it as long as I can understand your core concepts.

The 10 Minute Background was done primarily to preserve creative energies that could be used in Phase 2.

Onward!

Cheers, Xian

SURGERY FOLLOW-UP:My left eye cataract surgery on 1/7 went very well. My challenge now is having one eye fixed and one not. My glasses are almost useless, even with one lens out. I should have the other eye done in about 2 weeks. I can write, but it is slow going; shorter posts and more potential for errors for the next ~2 weeks. Thank you.

Okay, my app is finished (complete with RP sample) and my other app deleted. I think I'm ready to go.

I should have something coherent up for your consideration this weekend. My mother has been under the weather lately, and she is one of the worst patients imaginable, so I've been busy running every kind of chore possible.

Sounds good. I'll noodle over a few things first.

Alexis

Alexis, The Lightbringer
NG Male Shifter Feral Hunter

Personality: Alexis is loyal to a fault and noticeably more prone to issuing his trust than most Shifters. He is generally well-meaning, but a non-existent education growing up has left him with a number of yawning voids where common knowledge should be. He is every bit a Shifter, however: tough, adaptable, and dependable. Although inarticulate on his own, he is quick to form bonds with those he serves besides, and he gives himself over quite willingly to an instinctive pack mentality.

Alexis is comfortable with violence, because it is what he has known for the vast majority of his life. Peace-time matters leave him feeling ill-at-ease and anxious. He would rather be doing something physical instead of nothing. While of generally buoyant spirits, Alexis can quickly become gloomy if he is pushed to be introspective. He craves companionship in a way that can occasionally seem desperate.

Origin: Graywall Arena, Znir, Eberron

Chosen: Alexis is the light in the dark. No matter the depth of shadow or the crush of darkness, the light is there for those who wish to find it. Alexis is a challenge and a herald-- he is an icon that the Forsaken Plane desires, for he is a light that cannot be easily quenched. Death is a simple matter, and one easily accomplished. Yet, the Forsaken Plane is dawn to challenges, and pushing Alexis to the edge of hope and into the abyss of despair is nothing less than the great struggle it desires.

Core Concepts
•Alexis is a slave gladiator, thrown into the pits to fight and die for the amusement of others. He has fought and survived for many years. He has made as many gamblers wealthy as he has bankrupted.

•Alexis is never beyond hope. Despite the threat of a violent, gruesome death hounding his daily life, Alexis is able to find both the simple pleasures of life as well as the light at the end of the tunnel. He has a knack for finding the best in the worst situations, and he believes that despair is a worse fate than death.

•Friends come quickly to Alexis. Open, gregarious, and often affable, it has been a tremendous sadness that most of his friends will inevitably die-- many by his own hands. He remembers most of them fondly and often. He is pleased to be the one to bear the burden of having murdered his friends; their spirits can rest easier for that, he believes.

•Alexis will fight to the death to protect his friends and family. He was captured by gnolls at a young age when he chose to save his younger sibling instead of flee. He values his life, but he values the lives of others more.

•Alexis no longer fears death, but he will not be content to meet it under anything but his terms. To die in a violent battle is expected of him. To meet death stupidly or by giving anything less than his best is anathema.


Goals
•Alexis has many goals, most of which are quite easily achieved. For example, he wants to write down the name of every friend he has had to kill, so that someone else can know that they lived. He wants to dine on a meal of fine food and drink. He wants to have friends, so that he can have happy memories before he dies. He wants to spend a night with a woman who cares about him more than him just being a slave. In so many words, Alexis wants to live, not just survive. A surname would also be nice.

•Alexis is inspired, in many ways, by the Slayer Oath. He is so sure that he can die at any moment that he has forgotten what it even means to live. Seeing him forced into a position where he must alter this perception of himself and his surroundings is what I want to see to push him into very dark corners. To him, all he has is his death. What happens when he truly realizes that he has more that can be taken?


Secrets
•Alexis doesn't remember the exchange, but he agreed to be sent to the Forsaken Plane, though he had no idea what it was at the time. He occasionally experiences half-remembered dreams of a conversation with a Shadow. He doesn't believe that he would have ever had a good reason to make a deal with something like that; he dismisses the dreams as just that. Still, he occasionally wonders what could possibly I know. tempt him into a deal.

•Alexis has been growing sicker since coming to this place. His muscles ache more every morning, and his vision occasionally swims between chromatic and monochromatic; he hears whispers at the edge of hearing, and every sleep he wakes from feels one step closer to not waking at all. He assumes that he is dying, however, this “sickness” has yet to meaningfully affect him-- it does not hamper his ability to fight or survive; it usually strikes in times of tedium, when he has little physical activity to occupy his mind. The idea that he might die to a simple disease terrifies him, and he refuses to speak of his condition for fear that giving it voice will make it real.

Connections
•Since emerging on the Forsaken Plane, Alexis has been busy. As a former-gladiator of no mean skill, he endeared himself to a traveler being stalked by hungry predators. Gabrielle Heradin identified himself as a merchant of many wares! Although in truth he is little more than a snake-oil salesman, he proved himself appreciative enough to Alexis to gift him with a fine, Read: old cow leathergenuine royal-ambrosia-bullhide greatcoat. For whatever reason, Gabrielle has yet to try to pull any cons on Alexis, and Alexis has made a friend and got a fine coat out of the deal. All for the low price of killing some hungry wolves. Also, he got dinner!

Alexis ought not to be allowed to name thingsMs. Snugglekins is a large wolf spider that sometimes follows around Alexis and occasionally brings him cocooned and organ-liquified presents. Alexis first found Snugglekins when she was the size of a small dog; he fed her a small or, more accurately, a small canine-like creature that was too stringy to properly eatdog. While not exactly inseparable, the now horse-sized arachnid has clearly taken a liking to Alexis. Luckily, he isn't arachnophobic. Anyone unfortunate enough to be with Alexis when Ms. Snugglekins is around has it pointed out to them that she got her name because she really likes getting hugs.

•Kelles is an awakened giant vampire bat with a grudge against Alexis. For a modest monetary fee, Alexis slew her offspring with steel and flame at the behest of a village she had been preying upon. She escaped the flames and the former-gladiator's weapons, and now she eagerly plots her revenge against the hero-apparent.

Quirks
•Alexis is quite thick-skinned, literally and figuratively, and he is keen to forthrightness and blunt honesty. He is quite capable of issuing offense without intent, for it takes great effort to leave him feeling offended. A life of pit-fighting has done little to provide him with any sense of decorum, and his sense of fashion would frighten even the most resilient courtiers.

•Alexis is not very smart, but he is by no means slow. One of the few things that can get under his skin is treating him like a brainless savage. His issue isn't in his intellectual capacity, but in the fact that gnoll slavers are not very big on offering a well-rounded education. Teach him something, and he will remember it. Treat him like a brainless fool, and he might not step in front of the next arrow aimed at you.

•Seriously, don't let him pick out his own clothing if you want to ever be seen with him. You will never be respected. You will never be invited to fancy parties. The simple notion that you are associated with him will be enough to disbar you from everything but the lowest of social circles. He's an absolute delight at those fancy parties, though! Just make sure that you pick out his clothes for the occasion. Your reputation will be dragged through the most vile of feces if you don't.

RP Sample
The sunlight burned his eyes. Why did it burn? It had never done that to him before. Where was the noise; had he gone deaf? The cheers, the jeers, and the howls for blood, death, and more blood were conspicuously absent. The burning in his eyes faded, and Alexis observed the place he was standing in. It was not Graywall Arena. It was not even an arena. It was an empty glade, surrounded by tall, dense trees. Immediately to his rear was a small cave-- more of a rocky hole in the ground, really, which he had emerged from.

He sniffed at the air. Foreign scents assaulted his brain, and his memory turned over and over again trying to place them. He failed. This place was not Znir, either. Which meant he was where? Dead? He lifted his hand to his mouth and bit it hard enough to draw blood. Pain. Probably not dead. Probably. So how had he gotten here? Alexis thought back. He didn't have amnesia, apparently; he remembered most of his life. But his recent memories are... fuzzy. Like a peach. Like every time he tries to grasp them, they tickle him, and he can't hold onto them and laugh at the same time.

Magic, probably. This wasn't some wizard's illusion magic, though. It was too real for that. Those illusions always had a flaw, a weakness to findig the way out. Hunh. Maybe this was just a really good one, then. Or it was something else. Could a Wizard have sent him somewhere else entirely? It certainly wasn't against the rules, but it did seem like an awful lot of effort over simply killing your opponent.

He stretched. By all the gods and their holy whores, that felt good. Being free of his fetters felt nice. He also felt the familiar weight of arms and armor. How had he forgotten those? No matter. If this was a wizard's illusion, he probably didn't have time to escape it bfore his throat would be slit. If it wasn't... then it still didn't bring him any closer to understanding where he was standing or how he go t there. Alexis shrugged. He knew that he wasn't smart enough to figure this out on his own. He had to assume that this place was real until proven otherwise.

The idea of it being a cheap trick brought a scowl to his face. There were ar better ways to die than having your throat slit while your consciousness was somewhere else. He had to try and get out, just in case. Best way to do that was to test its limits. He spent a moment securing his few poor-quality belongings. Then he picked a direction and started moving in it. At first, he jogged his way to the treeline, then he moved slowly, but surely. The terrain was unfamiliar and broken. Turning an ankle could prove as deadly as missing a parry, so rushing seemed like a poor move.

Until he heard screaming. Long and drawn out. Terrified. It lacked the stutters and pitch of someone being actively harmed-- or eaten-- but that probably wasn't far off. Then he heard the wolf howls. Ah. That was a troubling bit of news. Alexis wasn't sure if he could fight off a whole pack of wolves, but even if he couldn't, attempting to save that poor sodding soul who is about to be eaten isn't a bad way to go out.

Trusting his instinct more than his eyes, Alexis broke into a full sprint over the broken ground, heading toward the sounds of inevitable bloodshed.
