The morning was a beautiful early autumn day as the trade caravans left the coastal town of Hermits Spire and destined for the inland harbour of Pallaville, stopping at every town on the way as some tradesmen will leave and some will join. You joined for the coin that you will get for protecting the goods and people from bandits and monsters; this was like a regular job as the train took about 60 days and as long as you lived and fought you got paid 100gp for the full journey. You worked for the trade guild and sometimes it was easy money and sometimes it was dangerous, on the whole you gained experience and could make some useful friends. There was always at least 10 such protectors and sometimes more, anyone wanting to tag along paid the guild and was afforded the protection provided.
As you travel along you come to the old town of Monks Green and this is where the story begins, you could either be part of the train or join at this point.

I am not in a good place right now

2. I hope to get a balanced game where characters can interact with each-other and will get the opportunity to role-play
3. I will be using grids of a sort but not too sure which so you may be guinea pigs lol.
4. You don't need to fill in your character sheet as it will be your background that will be the most important, I would however do your dice rolls as it may influence your character (a CHA of 6 may mean you are ugly or socially inept lol).
Thanks, mate. I will get my application reworked and polished.

There are some decent and free mapping programs, not very hard to learn either. I can link you information and stuff if you want.

Sort of looking at a magical animal of some sort, Druid Cat, cleric dog that sort of thing, a pure melee animal does not really work, using this system unless you are using Tome of battle, but then you want to go more some sort of monkey.

After much deliberation, I'm going to withdraw the half-orc barbarian from consideration from this game. As much as I want to play, I'm just not comfortable enough with the 3.5 ruleset to believe that this character will go anywhere. People are talking about things that I don't understand (such as the Druid Cat above), and it will take more time for me to learn the 3.5 ruleset than will be worth it for me to jump into a campaign at this point.

Sorry for bowing out, but if I'm not comfortable playing I won't enjoy it.

Ah, don't worry about "Druid Cats", that's just a weirdness. I don't think anyone ever actually plays an Awakened Animal.

A Half-Orc Barbarian might be almost naively traditional, but that doesn't mean it's bad. I really wouldn't think that you would have any issues, at this level.

Silverwolfer I am sorry but I am not going to allow the Awakened and Scarecrow71 do not worry about all the options some of these players are coming up with there is always room for newer players in any of my games and I would encourage newer players to apply as they need to get experience from somewhere. If you have any concerns please please send me a PM.

Yeah, I think I'm going to sit this one out. I know - I eventually have to get into a game in order to get the best grasp on the rules. But I need to read more of the rules other than Character Creation to get a grip on them to begin with before I get in a game.

And i'd rather be in a game that starts at level 1.

I'm curious how far we can go with making up our own backgrounds... Being a Jungle Elf Monk I was envisioning being a secret guardian of a long forgotten elvish city now long abandoned and overgrown in a jungle someplace. Would that fit your homebrew setting ?...

Possibly a L1 game with restricted (Core only) sources might be more appropriate, it's true, but I'm sure whoever gets in would be happy to help you out with anything (I surely would be, but of course I might not get accepted... especially if I don't finish writing up my char...)
