Re-recruitment for Inauspicious Beginnings
Inauspicious Beginnings - Forum
Dungeons & Dragons 3.5e - Forgotten Realms 3.5e
Ad Closes: Jan 31 '10
Estimated Members Requested: 2
Inauspicious Beginnings has been running for nearly 10 months now (minus a two-month hiatus over the summer while I was out of the country). It's been a lot of fun both for me and, I gather, for the players. However, the 7 players we started with is now down to 4, so I'd like to add a new character or two into the mix.
Here is the original recruitment thread. Most of what I wrote there still goes, except as noted below.
The party is currently within Cormanthor following a lead, and that's where your character will meet them. Although it's up to you what you put in your application, a story about why your character is in the great forest would be a nice addition. Successful applicants from the first round tended to include "snippets" from their character's past, which helped me get a better sense of their personality and of the player's writing and roleplaying strengths.
Your character will start at ECL 5 plus 1,000 XP. Starting funds is 5,000 gp, spent however you wish.
I will be accepting one player, two if exceptional interest and talent is shown. Ultimately, your character application should go in this folder: start a new thread titled with your character's name, and post your application (including all rolls) in that thread. Everything else, particularly questions that everyone might want the answers to, should be posted right here, in the ad thread.
Our current compliment of players and characters is as follows:
freefallin1309: playing Soloriss (an elven ranger with mean archery skills)
Leonidas1789: playing Graian (a half-elven priest of Tymora, party medic and sometime strong-arm)
TobyGon: playing Barradon (a dwarven rogue-type often shafted with the frontliner role)
Viletta Vadim: playing Cathrine (a "halfling" "mage" with a sharp tongue and a propensity to flood the battlefield with felines)
They're welcome to introduce themselves if they wish, and I'll certainly be asking for their input throughout this process. Good luck and I look forward to reading your applications!
Faerūn, the Dalelands. Times are never simply good or bad in this tumultuous region, but always a mixture of the two. Fortunes vary wildly from Dale to Dale, and from year to year. In this, the Year of Wild Magic, 1372 Dalereckoning, times are not good in the Eastern Dales. The cooler winds of the Fading have brought not calmness but savagery: goblin tribes and worse openly raid the smaller settlements, bandits attack without fear of retribution, and even the animals of the countryside and forests have seemed more vicious in recent days.

To put it bluntly, the weirder your build is the less likely you are to be accepted into the game. Not because I don't like crazy builds, but because your backstory just has to be that much more convincing for me to be happy with your character and their place in the story. If you think your choices are a bit on the esoteric side, it doesn't hurt to ask. Basically, I want you to stick close to core unless you really, really have your heart set on something wild.
