I am seeking 1 player to join a group that includes a cleric, druid and swordsage. I am looking for a mage or skilled character (bard, rogue, you get the idea). You are free to create NPCs within reason (teachers, parents, siblings, partners, ect) while writing your back stories, but if you give yourself the legendary Excalibur that you won in a game of poker, you might not get in :P

Books: I have almost all except setting books, but if there is something rare you want to use... Let me know what book you are looking in.

Level 3, 32 point, Gold standard (no more then 1/2 on one item)
LA +1 (if you ask me about it first)

Name
Class
Race
Alignment
Description: 1+ paragraph
Personality: 1+ paragraph
Back story: 3+ paragraphs
Roleplay sample (game you are in or small in character sample (or write your backstory from your character's perspective, be creative), just something so I can see your writing style)

Game Description:

It was almost 300 years since the world ended, or so the elders say. It started with what they called the first of the superbugs... No vaccine or cure could be found to fight it. One by one, the medicines of the world seemed to stop to function, and a hundred years of medical knowledge seemed to slip out the window. Than machines started to break down... From the most complicated of supercomputers to the lowest of little gizmos that people seemed to take for granted. The large cities became death traps, as those whose skills were more suited for the office struggled to make it in this new world.

It is said that close to 6 billion people died that first year alone, and humanity itself seemed to be heading on the fast track to extinction. No one knew why this happened... Some suspected that God had abandoned the world, either through our own choices or from giving up on mankind. Governments all over the world broke down, factions split off in a desperate struggle for survival.

275 years ago was the first known occurrence of magic. While rumors say that it was someone in the middle east, it spread throughout the world like wildfire. No one was sure why some had the gift for the arcane, but these early mages were worth their weight in gold.

Fifty years later, the gods arrived into the world. At first people were sceptical of these new powers, clinging to the faith of their grandfathers. As the years stretched on, the temples of Pelor and Boccob seemed to become as easily locatable as the churches and temples of old.

It is about this time that people started to notice that humans did not the only ones on this planet. Maybe they had always been here, hiding in plain sight... Maybe they are how people mutated to adapt in this brave new world. Those who fled to the mountains were said to become what we know as dwarves, Elves to the forests, and all numbers of other variants upon the human condition.

The cities of old are little more than ruins now... Many of what had once been thriving metropolises became little more than wastelands, where little more than dangers await those who are willing to delve for treasures of the past.

The year is 238 NE, and a story of new heroes is about to begin in a little fishing community called Issaquah the end edges of Lake Sammamish... Though the original meanings might be lost unto the sands of time, the names held.

Sounds good.

Do Tome of Magic and Magic of Incarnum count as "rare"? Skilled/arcane could, to a certain extent, be covered by a Binder or Incarnate.

Otherwise I'm feeling Beguiler, I think.

Interesting. I'd like to play an elf bard/wizard of Old or Venerable age, but that might pose complications for such a "young" setting, even if I run with an amnesiac background I've got kicking around my head. What do you think?

@TheFred: I have both of those books, but I admit I have never really used those rules and as such... Beguiler might be best as that way I don't have to worry about balance issues. If you had your heart on a binder/Incarnate, pick one and write a 1 paragraph description on the class and a 1 paragraph on why your heart is set on it and I'll consider it.

@SlyJohnny: I am totally cool with playing an elf bard/wizard (one or multi-class), but I will agree with you that an old/venerable elf might be a small issue with the world being so young (as its entirely possible that the said elf might have been there during the downfall of humanity). Also add into that, why would one who is well into their life become an adventurer? Why would one want to adventure with a newbie elf who is old enough to worry about falling and breaking a hip? I don't ask to be critical, I meant more questions for you to consider if you really wanted to go down that path. If your heart is set on it, I'll come up with an age chart for the more slow aging races.

you said characters start at third level. so i cant imagine trying to do anything too complicated to start but i do have an idea for a 2 rogue,1ranger. your basic all dual wielding build, im thinkin human for the race. so i am free of penaltys to skills and abilitys, and for there extra skill points. keep in mind i am super new to this play by post style of play, although i have run the character before in pen and paper campaigns. would you be willing to basically have a tag along. lol i would greatly appreciate it. thankyou for considering.

Incarnate just seems appropriate since it's a sort of Warlock/Dragonfire Adept type of class too, capable of being a skillmonkey and whilst not really filling the role of a primary arcane caster, adding a lot of utility. Binder is likewise capable of similar roles.

However, I feel like Beguiler or something similar could work quite well, too, so I might just stick with that. If you are interest, though, here is my attempt at explaining MoI (in a bit more than a paragraph, mind you, but this goes into a bit more detail).

Where do you want applications, by the way?

@Demonbane: I will say ok to that, but I'll give my usual "Thou shall not munchkin" warning. So more power to you!

@TheFred: I am going to say a ok. Applications go here.

The post rate is going to be 1post/2days as I know people have lives and things come up. I will go faster if people are posting at a faster rate (or slower during periods like the holiday season when people have things to do IRL).
