The Deep Waters of Dybeol

"The question of the monster inflamed all minds."
~Jules Verne

Recruiting One Additional Player

Application deadline: August 22

The Need
All qualified Investigators, apply within!

The Deep Waters of Dybeol is a D&D 3.5 game of virulent intrigue, deep mystery, and of both religious and political significance to the fishing town of Dybeol. Investigators originally hired to look into strange happenings have need of your help as they face darker and darker threats, and realize how all too easily the deep waters of Dybeol could close over their heads and fill their lungs with the black waves.

This is where you come in. As the game has lost some players due to real life concerns (unfortunately personal injury, and fortunately a new job and relocation), they have need of your character's aid. The players themselves have suggested that the role they feel most immediately needs to be filled is that of, as they put it, a "meat-shield."

However, you should know right up front that this game is 90% roleplaying and writing, and only 10% combat.

I am looking for excellent writers and crafters of deep tales. I am looking for living, breathing characters, with stories of their own, scars from their past, and hope for their future much more than I am looking for creative character sheets.

I am available, as are my players, to answer any questions you may have. Your character, if you are selected, will likely not enter the game immediately because of narrative constraints, but I will get you in soon.

Pertinent Changes to Original Application Rules
Please, please, please read the original game ad. It is crucial to your application's success. Follow all the rules for application (which are located in the Character Creation/How to Apply portion of the original game ad, with the following exceptions:

Your character should be Level 4, with 7500 XP.

Max starting health for levels 1 and 2, please roll for levels 3 and 4. If you roll less than half, you may take half.

Acceptable resources are the PHB I & II, Unearthed Arcana, and anything on the

I am very firm on class, race, and resources that I allow. Please, no exceptions.

Again, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask (unles you question begins with, "Can I be a dragonborn planewalker...)!

Character Application are still to be posted in the forum - here.

I look forward to reading them and hearing from you.

Please apply soon. Your town has need of you.

Game Description:

Sunset Lady Lost with All Hands!

...Just over a week ago, Isaac Walsh's fishing boat, the Sunset Lady set out from Dybeol Harbor to begin another journey of prosperous fishing in his favorite hunting grounds north of Squall Isle. They were expected to be out for four days, but when the fourth day came and went, and then the fifth, people began to wonder. Now, Alderman Lorlock has officially declared the Sunset Lady lost at sea with all hands. Eight men were aboard her when she was lost. We have learned that Alderman Lorlock is calling for an official investigation...

Everyone knows the waters are dangerous and boats are often lost. Was the incident a hapless sea accident? If so, why are some powerful people pushing for a deeper investigation, and why are some of those same people casting a baleful glance at the Chapel of Deep Waters? Why, too, do the people and clergy of the Chapel of Deep Waters point the finger beyond Dybeol's borders to the economic machinations of House Sand? And why, for the Maker's sake, will the people just not let go of the legend of the kraken for crying out loud? There has always been, and always will be a perfectly reasonable explanation for the tragedies at sea...

The Dark Cloud of Dybeol seems to be hanging low of late, indeed.

@Undercliffe: I was actually thinking of submitting a cleric, since you lack a healer, who could serve as a tank, rather than a meat shield.
@Whitleyrr: You say races and classes are restricted to the ones you list, but does that mean ACFs from other sources are allowed? How about PrCs? Are they subject to the same restrictions as 'classes'?

You hipster, you!

Sorry about the double post, but I didn't want you to miss these questions. Is the pantheon worshipped by all races of Dybeol or do the dwarves, elves etc have gods of their own?
Where would a dwarf refugee find a temple led by dwarven priests to receive (cleric) training?

The pantheon is worshiped by all races and congregations are not divided racially. But rather, if one were a worshiper of Genero, one would go to the local Chapel/Temple of Genero, regardless of the racial makeup of its clergy or congregation.

A dwarf who would be interested in taking the vows of religion would inquire and train at the closest chapel/temple of that deity, or be called directly into service by the deity itself. So a dwarven cleric would not necessarily have to be trained in the clerical arts by a dwarven priest.

Ok, I have completed my application and submitted two slightly different characters for your convenience.
It didn't really feel right having the cleric version trained at either of the local temples in Dybeol, mostly due to the deities worshiped there, so I took some liberty in his backstory. If you disagree, I am tentatively willing to alter it.
