EDIT: The ad has been edited to show that more character spots are available.
The City of Doors sits at the top of a endlessly tall spire in the middle of the Outlands, and it's residents represent all of creation in their make-up. Innumerable gates, called doors, open into the myriad of worlds and planes that stretch into infinity, and from all come the citizens of Sigil. With so many faces, beliefs, and customs, is it any wonder that Sigil is considered the Center of the Multiverse?
*For those familiar with the Planescape setting, all events are considered to have happened before the Faction War.
Drowbane's games are truly legendary and magnificent. The only thing that can let them down is if the players start to think of themselves as a statblock and forget about their characters. I had to drop out of the last game because I felt this was happening with some players and I just couldn't muster up the same enthusiasm as I had previously. I regret that now.
Wow. Turn my back for a couple days to wait on submissions and get a ton thrown in. I'm really impressed with how many people have seen the advertisement. Thank you all for applying.
Yes, this is a Drowbane and Mishra game. Mishra and I are "sub-dming" for Drowbane, who may drop into the games as he wants. The final applications will actually be vetted through both of them, though for my game-thread (which exists within the larger City of Doors framework) I shall have the final say, with veto power vested in DB. In other words, I'm running one game under the supervision of DB, who is running the campaign setting.
As I said, most anything 3.5x is permitted. DM approval for all things is necessary though, so while you can build any sort of character, "broken" builds are likely to be vetoed. Something that is considered game-breaking can be viewed in the light of the (Complete Arcane) Warlock with the Dark Speech feat. Something that is so obviously abusable will be thrown out.
That said, this is a very high-powered game world. The distinction between "high-powered" and "overpowered" is often in the eye of the beholder. So go ahead and submit an idea if you have one. I evaluate characters first by their role-play value and then by game-worthiness in terms of rules and builds.
In short: You have a free hand to build your character, but broken builds will inevitably be cut. What constitutes broken is in the eye of the DM: but if you have to ask yourself if you're abusing the rules, you probably are.
I would remind everyone that I said to PM me with your submission. First consideration will be given to those who have, though I'll be accepting submissions until the end of the week. For those of you who've held back due to looking for clarification, I hope I've provided it with this reply. If not, ask again with @TZ at the beginning of the post and I will answer.
As a general rule, everything that Wippit has said I now confirm, and his build is a good idea of what sort of characters you'll be gaming with.
I forgot to add: Submission deadline is midnight EST, Sunday, 6 Oct. 2012. You have until then to offer me a synopsis, after which I'll ask for a full build if your character strikes me as a good pick.
