Can't wait... I just had to comment that this is a first where so much of my traffic for this has come through PMs. I guess it is at the end all the same, but thought it was an interesting phenomenon.

Cheers, Xian

WIP. I actually already know most of this, but it'll take a bit of time to get everything written down nicely. Almost done now. Just need a sample post.

Name: John

Race: Dhampir (slightly modified)

Class: Oracle (Dual-Cursed with Hunger and Wasting)

Alignment: Neutral Good

Appearance and Personality: Although he could pass as human in certain situations, his grey pallor and gaunt appearance give others an impression of the unnatural. This tends to make others wary of him, so he wears a hooded cloak and usually avoids crowds. But nevertheless, he does look for opportunities to relieve someone's pain, believing it a necessary step to atone for his past sins.

Place of Origin: Golarian - Andoran (although he's traveled quite a bit)

"Attraction": John is someone that wants to do the right thing, that wants to redeem himself, but is in a constant struggle with his nature. But he doesn't always win that struggle, and hates himself all the more for it.

Team,

Here is the updated applicant table. I am currently doing the assessment write up for those that have already submitted. From the looks of it, I can begin with Phase 2 with 5-6 of you. You do not have to address the items in your assessment prior to begin Phase 2, but include any adjustments as part of Phase 2.

On sound advice from GM/DM mentors, since I have become split between PM and thread here and bouncing back and forth has become a bit tedious, please put all future and past discussion here in this thread in secret text instead of PMing me. This way, both questions and answers are consolidated in the same spot and does not require me multiple clicks to access.

So for those still in the hunt with PMs, please consolidate them and post them here in secret so I can keep tabs on them. Thanks to my mentors for this great piece of advice!

Second, as I look through many of your applications I just want to amplify on one thing, your character does not seek out the Forsaken Plane nor does it know that they are taken by a plane (or that a plane is responsible). For those taken, it is as if you are in a parallel world (well those from Golarian that is) with places that are familiar, but with a different name and people within them.

For those that are home to the Forsaken Plane, it is exactly that, home. There is nothing that would even hint that anything is happening and those that are "known" are in the form of superstition.

Player Character Name Race Class Land of Origin Complete?
pianoman90 Dennis Crispin Human Alchemist 2/Barbarian 1 Daggermark - Off Plane Phase I Complete
Digorig Valtyra (Val) Shunso Aasimar Cleric Golarian, City of Absalom Phase I Complete

Did you miss my application?

EDIT: I did alter a couple of things a tiny bit.

I did in the table, but not in the review. I will fix this once I get back home, since I am out and about now.

Cheers, Xian

In case any of you were wondering what this sort of game could look like with Xian as DM, check out what he's been doing in this game. It's been a blast. Also, he probably forgot to mention that he won POTM on about page three of this game and it was featured on the revamped RPGX Podcast.

Judging from what I have seen of his posts as a player I am not surprised, and the writing as a DM looks just as good as I would be expecting

I have to second both Goat and One. You would never guess that X-man is new to the DM arena. Whoever is lucky enough to get in this game will have a blast.

Cristal08Darkmoon,

I updated the tables to reflect your app... I assure it was a table typing oversight. I have been reading your app and preparing comments along with the others for consumption which I hope to have out tonight so you will have something by tomorrow AM... well for those of you in the Eastern US Time zone that is.

Goats/Digs/OneD,

Appreciate the endorsement, but you know that I can't take the credit for The Becoming... you forgot to mention that in the game are some of the top players AND DMs around on RPGX and if you look at their posts, the stuff writes literally writes itself. Not to mention the great mentorship these veteran DMs have been giving me... I don't think I could have not succeeded even if I tried!

Thanks all and seriously I am looking forward to this project! Onward!

Cheers, Xian

Ok, here's a bit more... not sure if we could tie it into the land or not... being noble, she would have vested interest in the well being of the city/state of things.. as well as being looked up at, perhaps viewed as a hero in a way... People could approach her and ask for help etc, where she could set out to right wrongs or aid where needed etc...

Please share your thoughts.

Kallev Littleton
right-aligned image

Name: Kallev Littleton
Age: 17
Race: Aasimar
Gender: Female
Class: Sorceress (Celestial Bloodline)
Alignment: Neutral Good

Description/Appearance: Kallev is of average size and height, thou she appears a bit pale, weak and frail. She stands at five foot ten and approximately one hundred and ten pounds. She wears a finely crafted light blue/black dress, tailored perfectly to her body. Her long luscious platinum hair flows freely, though at times she pulls it to one side. At her side she wears a long sword, accompanied by a backpack and long composite bow, both of exquisite taste.

@All - I just want to put this note to clarify the kind of world that the Forsaken Plane for those that may not be familiar with the Ravenloft campaign world setting based on my review of the apps so far.

The Forsaken Planes is a low magic setting, not unlike those found on the material plane. Spellcasters are rare, and common folk seldom witness the supernatural, understanding it only through folklore, though that folklore is very prevalent. Even "common" Core races, are a rarity on the Forsaken and often the subject of wrongful association with the dark powers. Those more "exotic will find their lives and the lives of their team mates very difficult. Subtle and unknown to all but the select and rare few, the natural laws of the Forsaken Plane have been insidiously re-written. It is crucible for the virtuous to be tested and for the wicked to be tormented.

At the very core of the this theme I should have clarified is a Gothic core. The horrors of the Gothic tradition resonate and are horrifying and terrifying because they are inherently us. Innocence battles corruption, where love destroys and redeems, and where magic cannot overcome morality. Just because you are playing in a "horror themed" campaign it is not necessary for the character to BE the horror theme. Thus those that are selected by The Powers to play in this world are being selected to their heroes, not to be one of its inmates. These heroes for the most part study the occult or mysteries beyond the mundane to pursue and combat the evil, not for pursuit of personal power or ambition.

Having said that because the players were selected to be heroes, does not guarantee that they will become heroes and nor should the path be easy. This references that characters that are so good/virtuous that they are flawless. As a Gothic crucible, The Powers selects those with faults and flaws that they can test and challenge. If the character was so virtuous and flawless that their morality could not be challenged, then they would not have been taken. There wold be no point. This goes to the question I posed to the players applying of why they as players believe that The Powers chose to bring their characters to the Forsaken Realm. What faults or flaws do you think that they are going to use you to test your virtue or villainy? For those with darker/villainy characters that tenuous potential for redemption.

The Powers will challenge your morality so not answer are simply black and white, for few, if any, dilemmas and things in the Forsaken Realms ever will be.

Coincidentally, along with a few other qualifiers, this is the basis for my assessments and, in the end, player selections. I will put this in the front advert for all to reference and apologize that if the above was not articulated clearly up front and also understand that if this causes you to change your concept, please feel free to do so.

Thanks for your support! Onward!

Cheers, Xian

Team,

Had a late night/early AM trip to the ER last night so will be delayed in getting the assessments out, but will try to close it out today.

Again apologize for the delay.

Cheers, Xian
