The last Wards of Douven Stahl

Game Description:

[An Introduction]

The day has dawned bright and crisp, a perfect example of early autumn in Nentir Vale and a thrill of excitement shivers down your spine for today is the day. Your training is nearly complete, only one test remains, said Master Stahl a day ago, then you smell the delectable aroma of breakfast through your open bedroom window. Looking out you see two of your fellow wards practicing with blunted iron weapons in the yard, but they stop and turn as the smell reaches them too. You know that all of your classmates must be up as well and so you dash to your wardrobe to garb yourself, Torm forbid you be the last to breakfast! Then it hits again, TODAY IS THE DAY! You are dressed and out the door before the sun-glowing motes of dust can settle on your bed...

[Game Master]
That would be me, Sillaric

[Game Explanation]
This game will take H-P-E series of adventures and convert them for use in the Realms. The theme here is young adventurers, well-trained but wholly untested facing a dark world. The game will open with Keep on the Shadowfell then continue on through H-P-E series of adventures modified to fit in the Realms. In the Realms Nentir Vale runs west from the edges of Deepingdale to the northeastern flanks of the Thunder Peaks. Time-period wise this game will take place just before (and if it survives will take into account the events of) the Sundering, beginning in 1483 DR, the Year of the Tasked Weasel.

[Application Process]
Post your application as its own thread in the APPLICATIONS folder in the game forum in the following format (you can include your statblock at the bottom if you want, but it cannot replace the regular format):

Character Name:

Physical/Personality Description: A paragraph or more (2 max please) describing your character's physical appearance (or common faces/shapes for shapechangers) and personality. If you want to put secrets into your characters personality you can "private tag" them in this area. Include how your character reacts to stress/danger, how your character dresses in the field, in the tavern, etc and how he/she generally deals with others socially.

Background: No more than 3-4 paragraphs (2 is fine if you can get the point across that quickly). Please see below for some guidance on how this needs to be.

The APPLICATIONS folder can be found here:

[Character Creation]
Level 1, standard 22-pt buy and starting gold/equipment as written in the PHB. You will receive a single weapon/implement for free to don't spend anything on that. Of special note you will be beginning the game as wards of the famed explorer/adventurer Douven Stahl. Whether you are one of his actual children (he is a human male and his wife is a half-elven female) or one of the three dozen or so youths given into his care for protection and training over his 5 decades of adventuring life, you are of the last group made ready for a life of danger and heroism. Creatures from all walks of life, all races and many parts of the world have grown up or trained with Douven as his fame is widely known and he has contacts across the known world and from many of the world's goodly realms and organizations.

A special note about how you create your character. For Realms games I care more than anything how much you embed a character into the Realms. You can be as wild and creative as you like, but they must feel like a Realms character. If want to make a shifter or a warforged go ahead, but you better explain why in a convincing and compelling matter. That said, have fun!

[Sources allowed]
Basically everything as long as its been added into the Character Builder/Compendium. I own all of books but I generally game with nothing but my laptop handy. Also, while I'm not disallowing hybrids, I don't like them. Use the mechanic at your own risk.

Can't imagine anyone remembers me, but I'm tentatively returning... so, hi Weavers, it's been a long time!
Hey all, we now have the spot in the Scales of War filled which rocks, unfortunately we've lost another of our Core game players. So we now officially need at least one defender plus a fifth 'free agent' spot filled. Get your apps in, there's a fight going on!

I'm re-tooling my app for the Core game, still an assassin but also an invoker of Zehir.

I'd like to put in my previous application, Sever the Revenant Assassin for consideration for the Core game.

Additionally, I'd like to also submit a defender for the the Core game. It was an app for another game which did not get accepted. So the sheet is at lvl 2. But I'll drop it to lvl 1 if I get accepted.

Name Rorgash Stormedge
Race Half-Orc
Class Swordmage - Aegis of Assault

suyh82, your app is great for the Core game defender, I've sent you an invite!

Zelphi, that would be fine as long at the character still has a reason to be heroic. Also, just a note I have an unreasoning hatred of hybrid characters so please don't do it that way (standard feat-based multiclassing is fine).

Oh it's all there, they're at a cross roads where Zehir is completely meaningless to them but the source of their powers and at this new juncture where they can discover themselves a-new.

It's also a straight feat based MC, not a hybrid.

He's a MC invoker of Zehir but neutral in alignment, so he'll have no trouble doing heroic deeds but his philosophies and upbringing lead him away from being Lawful Good and give him an odd perspective of what Good and Evil are.

I see, I was looking at the wrong post. You've got the spot, I've sent an invite.

We seem to have lost another player. This replacement can be any class really as we still have one of each role already. A striker or defender would likely be best but I'll look at anything. I'll leave this open until Wednesday the 24th and choose from whoever posts an app by then. Please post a complete app following the rules as stated. Anything in the CB goes but I'm not particularly familiar Essentials yet so you might want to avoid that. Good luck and CHEERS!
