The Path to Redemption
Redemption - Forum
Dungeons & Dragons 3.5e
Estimated Members Requested: 6
Applications forms and explanations of expectations
Let me say that first of all you will be playing characters that are seeking redemption for past crimes.
The game is going to be dedicated roleplay. You will have to prove to both god and mortal that you no longer are evil. That means that character development will be key too the game.
That being said you will be judged solely on the depth and quality of your history, personality, and sins. Sins are of course the evil acts that you commit. These will figure heavily on the path of redemption of course.
One more thing to remember. You were originally evil that means at some point something happened to turn you good. I expect it to be something profound for the character no matter how how small it is. Again the better quality grant you a better shot at being accepted.
Applications will be put in the game forum.
Looking for six characters. Once I find six I really like I'll close it.
Alignment: Must be good
Race: I'm allowing monster classes. More on that below
Class: Starting level 5 standard gold. I'm doing gestalt to allow for monster classes. Intelligent monsters only. No dragons.
Physical description: Put as little or as much as you feel comfortable here. I'm not too concerned.
Personality: Creativity and depth are what will get you in. I don't expect two pages, but I do expect to see a well thought out character. After all the game is going revolve around the character's spiritual journey.
History: Same as above only I expect some kind of momentous event to change your character from evil to good. Such a pronounced change doesn't come without a life changing event.
Sins: Creativity is really encouraged here. I'm not looking for one or two word sins I'm looking for three or four defining sins.
While I certainly wouldn't mind sins revolving around the christian sins I'd like to see creativity.
Example: Sierra the dread necromancer- Instead of saying raising the dead and slaying good aligned people I'd like: Because of the loss of her sister she has turned to necromancy to revive her sister. In that process she has raised a number of undead using black arts in a misguided attempt to raise her sister from the dead and take vengeance on the man that ruthlessly killed her sister. Due to the practice of necromancy several clerics and a paladin have been sent to subdue her. Using her powers as well as her ability to portray herself as something less threatening. She has slain those whom seek to bring her to justice.
Again creativity is encouraged but it needs to fit the person.
Finally we get to the crunch.
Roll in forum: 5d6v2r1 Don't worry about stats too much as the focus won't be on fighting.
HP: Max as I don't want you to die from an errant hit..
Books: Any save setting books like sandstorm or Faerun.
Anything I missed feel free to ask.
For whatever reason you have seen the light from the deepest depths of the inky blackness. Now with the help of those whom can see past flesh you seek redemption in the eyes of mortals and gods alike. Whatever the reason you decided to seek the light in your heart it will be a difficult journey into the depths of the soul. One that most could not make.
What happens when there are no wonders to be seen?
What happens when the poet cannot dream?
