BIG Note: "Class" isn't necessarily job. Choose a 'role' first, then choose abilities to suit it. Feel free to adjust the title, concept, or backstory of the classes provided to fit your character, not the other way round.

Starting Level: 1
Starting GP: Max Per Character Class
Starting HP: Max for 1st Level, roll for successive levels.
Alignment: Does not exist. The one thing I insist upon is some devotion to the group, but beyond that, your morals are your own.
Traits: Maximum of 1.
Flaws: 1 is Required. Bonus Feat can come from any resource. No more than one flaw is permitted.
Other Bonuses: Player's Guide to Faerūn, as per the regional documentation on pages 6-31.

Notoriety System: Notoriety will be a specific property in this game that will track the group's (and individual's) notoriety, which will no doubt affect the pressure the group feels in their current place of crime. Higher notoriety will draw the attention of law enforcement, skilled bounty hunters, and the players will find that procuring assistance will come at an increasing cost. There will be several ways to decrease notoriety, including moving to a new city, or by setting people up to take the fall for them.

Application:

Character Description: Who are you? What do you look like? What things are noticeable about you?
Party Role: Are you a skill-monkey? An enforcer? A scout? A sneak?
Character Sheet: The more detail, the better.
Your Story: I don't expect a novel here. Why are you in this line of work? Give a quick setup, under 500 words or so.
Your Psychoses: What makes your character tick? Just a brief outline of the character's way of thinking.

Applications go HERE.
Die Rolls go HERE.

The Story:

You've found yourself a member of the Night Knives, a copycat guild named after the ill-fated guild of the same name from Sembia to the south. The guild is small, at the moment, and you're not much better than new recruits. Coin is sparse, you've got little support, but there are always jobs to be found. You've scored a few small victories, but you're all confident that your big scores are just around the corner.

Well, I'm interested. I may have something up in a few days.

JimmyAgent007 Sep 19 '11 5:08am

ninja, warlock or swordsage. Finally a game where I can play a sociopath.

Hiyami Sep 19 '11 5:19am

This definitely looks interesting. I'll have to look at the books a bit before deciding, though. :D

JCBarnes Sep 19 '11 5:27am

Posting interest. BTW, the dice rolling formula should be 6m5d6v2 or you will get garbage.

Zarae Sep 19 '11 6:00am

well, i have a character i'd like to apply with. i am very familar with FR, as that is what my main OC are from.

not finished as no stats and skills added till i know how to do the dice.

StyleX Sep 19 '11 7:32am

I am interested, but I don't know all that much about 3.5 other than what is in the SRD... will that be a major problem? For instance I don't have access to the Player's Guide to Faerūn for the bonus feat. This sounds like a very good concept but I just thought I'd ask first :)

Aiden Sep 19 '11 2:44pm

JCBarnes: You are correct, sir. Thanks for pointing that out! I'll update my original ad momentarily.

StyleX: It'll be difficult to work in a 3.5 newcomer, but not impossible. If you have a desire to learn and can parse through lots of options, that would be great, but keep in mind that with only the SRD, you'll only really have access to the Race and Class options that are listed as PHB. It should be relatively easy to find a reference for the bonus feats, but I'd be loathe to post anything that may or may not be within WotC's terms of use.

Aiden Sep 19 '11 3:15pm

Naturally, I forgot to mention, Complete Scoundrel is an excellent resource for this kind of game. As is Complete Adventurer and Cityscape.

Jreece Sep 19 '11 3:32pm

Oh so interested, Just a good old, evil human.

Would you allow the Unarmed Swordsage?
