Game Type and Setting
DnD 3.5 game with some horror elements, set in a dark fantasy world inspired by the Innistrad Magic the Gathering sets.
Little ol' me.
The game starts in the quiet fishing town of Redfil. The town wisefolk have divined that the regular but infrequent Rise of the Drowned is set to coincide with the more frequent Walk of the Blooded Trees. The player characters have been asked to travel to Gavony and request help. The journey by road is long and dangerous and it requires those with skill and bravery to match.
Travelling to Gavony is where the journey starts. Dealing, or failing to deal, with the dual Rise and Walk is where the first chapter ends.
Your characters need not be local just as long as they have a reason to help. (Yes, they will be paid :-) )
Redfil, like every other settlement suffers from random disappearances. In the last few months however these have worsened. There is a curfew and no-one is permitted to be alone outside at any time of day.
Your characters, even at level 2, are among the top 10% or so in the town, power-wise. Similarly elsewhere in the world. The vast, vast majority of folk are 1st level NPCs. There will be others around with mojo but they are a rarity (of course in game it won't feel like that necessarily because of who you end up interacting with...)
Please fit the following into your application:
* Character bio (name, age, race, description, background, personality)
* Role in party (class + anything else you think is relevant such as feats or plans for progression)
* Why your character would be asked for help and why they said yes (or perhaps it's not that straight-forward...)
Feel free to put parts of your app in private tags if you want to keep any secrets.
Application will be open for two weeks and I am looking to take approx. 4 players. Applications go in the game forum, questions can be asked here or in the forum.
I'm looking for interesting characters that fit into the mood of the setting, combined with coherent writing.
Level 2, 32 points, max HP, standard wealth (900gp). No alignment restrictions.
Acceptable Source Material
Core (including UA, Psionics and PHB2)
Tome of Battle
Magic Item Compendium + Spell Compendium
Maybe. Feel free to ask
WotC website material
Anything else - don't ask, please.
Any additional information or requirements
I am open to new players and new 'Weavers. As I'm trying to diversify my player base I will be prioritising the apps of players I am not already GMing for.
Posting rate: I'm looking for a commitment to three times a week. I normally post Monday, Weds-Friday and at the weekend depending on what's going on.
Notes on wealth, loot and progression:
I am intending for the characters to advance fast by PbP standards. Expect your characters to level up. This tends to be rarity in PbP games so be prepared :-) I also intend to give out rewards and bonuses beyond XP such as bonus feats. I'm not going to tell you what these are in advance. If you don't like surprises and don't like your characters to be boosted beyond the rules this likely isn't the game for you.
Partially because the advancement rates will outstrip actual encounters and partially due to the nature of the setting, you shouldn't expect to follow WBL. Neither should you expect to be able to find and purchase particular expensive or magical items. This shouldn't be an issue just don't base your concept on getting your hands on particular items - unless of course you can make them yourself!
