Can you find your way home and defeat the Evil Queen?

Game Description:

The war against Grunella the Evil Queen was over generations ago. Her power stretches across the known world, from the Sea of Dragons to the Golden Hills of Vandorn, from the Swamp of Tears to Ironshield Mountains no one has escaped the cruelty of her reign.

A group of brave heroes were brought together in hope of breaking her power and restoring freedom to the people of the world. They suffered many losses. The Queen’s forces claimed the lives the wizard Drummond, and his apprentice Teig on the fields of Nottingate. Almunt the Mighty stands, battle axe raised high above his head in the bailey of the Queen’s fortress at Sorin Lake, turn to stone by the foul magic of her sorceress Morrigana.

Some battles were won. The Queen’s favorite pet, the Black Dragon Draxin, is dead. The town of Farlong was liberated from her undead cohorts and provides a base from which further resistance might grow, throughout the lands people of all races struggle against the shackles of her oppressive rule.

You have fought long and hard side by side against the forces of the Evil Queen but now are captured and at her mercy.

Gathered together in the dungeon of the great Palace Quell you are dragged from your cells and brought before Grunella herself. Her countenance is terrifying to behold, the demon blood that mingles with that of her human ancestors have left its mark. You may have thought her heritage a rumor once, but no more. The antler like horns a top her head, the barbed tail the swishes with menace. When she opens her mouth to speak her voice is like fire and gravel, “You have dared to raise arms against your rightful mistress and Queen and for that crime I banish you to the outer reaches to wander in sorrow, never again to see the lands of your birth, never again to feel the touch of your families and loved ones who you will leave behind to suffer further for your crimes.”

She waves her darkwood staff in intricate patterns, speaking words that even demons tremble to hear. The large crystal shard that tops the staff glows with a baleful light that intensifies as she weaves her magic culminating in a blinding flash. All the air seems to leave your body and you have the sensation of falling at a frightening speed.

Then there is blackness…

Applications should be 5th level (or equivalent) characters using a 36-point point buy. Maximum hit points for 1st, re-roll 1's after first level.

The PCs start with no equipment save one peasant outfit, the clothing they were wearing in the Queen's dungeon.

I am pretty wide open for character concepts but assume your characters have fought together against the queen.

Classes, feats etc. can come from any supplement but you must provided me with a reference link or title and page number for anything not found in the Player's Handbook I.

You may take up to two Traits and up to two Flaws at 1st level but are not required to take advantage of this option.

What exactly are you looking for as far as applications? Completed character sheets? Concepts only? I've a ranger/duskblade (PHB II, p19) in mind, possibly goliath (Races of Stone, p53).

Sounds neat. I'll see what I can come up with. A wizard would definitely be at a loss at the start of this game....would spellbooks be find-able or scavengeable?

If we were to play a Druid, or Ranger, with an animal companion, would that Animal Companion be teleported with us, or would we need to track one down?

@DragonMech: New Animal Companions would need to be obtained.

@KillerK: Okay!

@Grodech: If you're so inclined you may link to or post a full sheet over in the game's application thread. I'd like the concepts first so that I can cut off any "crazy" ideas before you waste your time. A full sheet will be required for acceptance. Your idea is fine.

@Blick: A Pixie with 1 level in Ranger and no Irresistible Dance, I'm okay with that.

I have a couple concepts I'd be interested in playing. Either a CE Barbarian (motivated to fight the queen by hatred of oppression), or an LG Cleric/ Rogue.

How newbie-friendly is this? Been a little bit since the last time I played D&D (3.5e forever though!) and so I'm gonna fumble a bit here and there 'til I get back in the swing of things. I'm simply aiming to do a Rogue character.

I was thinking of playing straight fighter, or a paladin who was a minor noble.

@SurlySeraph & silverlock: Haven't heard a concept yet I wouldn't be on board with.

@Zeich: I'd imagine this will be pretty newbie-friendly. The more experienced players might use a few of the more esoteric options in an attempt to compensate for the no equipment starting point but things will be fairly straight forward game play-wise. I'll encourage players that use those option to "show their work" so to speak so we can all marvel at their cleverness. I haven't met a player yet who doesn't appreciate some marveling at their cleverness.
