Posts per day: At least one and if you don't post after two weeks you will be dropped without notice if you don't give me forewarning.

Of course I require the standard history, personality, and appearance as well as a solid reason to be looking for the culprits. I will also be judging you on pregame roleplay as well. If deciding becomes tough I'll look to your roleplay style to get you in.

Also this game I'm being especially generous this time. I want you to create characters you want. I might accept homebrew, but I will consider everything. That being said I want this to be a fun and interesting game so no cheese please.

LA buyoff in effect

Pregame roleplay: My reasoning for the pregame roleplay is to see how well each person's playstyle and posting rate meshes with mine. When I feel I have enough candidates I will open up an open one where everyone can roleplay. Until that time I'll be using private threads when the applications are complete. I will also be taking a little bit of time after applications close. I'm hoping this will show me a little bit more about both you and your characters.

Game Description:

The kingdom of Rysha. A relatively peaceful kingdom compromising most of the Dragon Reach mountains with a piece of the highlands off to the east. Ruled by king William and queen Eilonna rule with a a firm yet less intrusive hand. Under their rule trade from the dwarves who rule their mountainous territory and trade by sea has also flourished. It is this trade that has made the country so successful. For the farmlands though as fertile as any other country isn't enough to sustain the ever growing country.

And yet for all it's prosperity and general lack of conflict there are problems within the world. Pirates and brigands still roam the wilds while beasts of natural and magical descent prowl there as well preying on the unwary travelers. And lately something much worse has been happening. Several smaller fishing villages have been sacked as of late. The bodies left were mutilated; that is except for the women of child bearing age. There have been few of their bodies found. All of these attacks have taken place at night without any warning it would seem and the culprits have disappeared back into the water. All that is left is the carnage and broken bodies by daylight and strange webbed footprints.

For whatever reason something didn't feel right. Something that wouldn't just go away about the attacks. And the pursuit for the truth began. Though the truth is much more slippery than one would believe. All that has been discovered is that these attacks were committed by something smarter than people want to give them credit for.

Rumors began to crop up that the king wanted to send people to investigate the massacres. Being picked for such a mission you set out to find the source of the attacks for better or worse. Only time will tell if the source of the attacks will be found. Or if they can be stopped.

What happens when there are no wonders to be seen?
What happens when the poet cannot dream?

Many thanks n_n I was working on the character a little while ago and really liked the build and character n_n

I've finished my crunch, but for some reason I'm having a hard time getting the background to gel. If it doesn't come together by the weekend, I think I'll have to pass, as interesting as this sounds.

I'd really appreciate it if you could get your applications started. After all I can't judge anything by a character sheet.

I have my 1st draft completed and should post up in the next day or so. I don't like posting up WIP.

It's nothing against anyone really. I'm just more or less saying mechanical stuff can wait.

Understood, DDS.

My sheet is preliminarily done, I usually leave some of the gear choices until after knowing who all I am playing with, big ticket items are already purchased though. That is not a problem, yeah?

The rest of my app still needs a final proof-reading before I publish it, that's all. Maybe posting it tonight. Then I will be ready for some pre-game RPing.

Sometimes I like to choose the feats, flaws/traits (when allowed), and even equipment because I like to include them in the back stories and descriptions of my characters. I'll finish one up soon though.
I think people are taking their time too b/c the ad says it closes on 11/30. A lot of people love to procrastinate! Me included.

And, at the risk of sounding creepy, may I say about Paro's app...Hellooooooo Nurse!!

Ha ha.

Just a reminder that sometimes sources differ so if you could list the book and page where you found something it would be helpful if you know there's multiple sources. Magic Item Compendium and Spell compendium trump other sources by the way.
