Biography
The oldest of seven siblings, Yazul has always been a bit too restless, a bit too wild for life on her family farm on the outskirts of town. She's no stranger to the hard work of farm living, and loves spending time with her younger siblings, but... well, there's always a 'but' somewhere.

'Yaz' has more than a bit of a temper, and she's started more than her fair share of brawls in town, looking for a fight. To try to keep the peace her parents started sending her into town less and less, keeping her home on the farm to watch the plots, or her siblings, or just twiddle her thumbs. That didn't sit right with her either, so she started to venture out into the forest. At first it was just to look around, trying to find adventure, but as time went on she started to learn real skills. Hunting, how to keep an eye on your surroundings. How to trap, what kinds of berries and lumber were worth marking or bringing back to town. Out in the wild there's a whole education to be had.

Of course, there's more to the world than just one wild, and just one wood. And the next chance Yaz sees for some real adventure, she's going to take it.

I understand vastowen.

I have just posted up the OOC page.  No one should post in it, until your character has been officially confirm here in the recruitment thread.  The reason I'm directing everyone to it is because it contains some pointers that everyone should be clear on and agree to.  If any of them are going to be a problem, it would be a good time to bow out (or PM me if you don't want to do so publicly).
That schedule should work for me, and the rest all seems fine... I have seen games ruined by party conflict and OOC arguments (though not on this site), so I can understand the concern. It's definitely something I want to avoid.

That's okay persephone, it was all rather short notice :-[

Perhaps we can meet in some other game when the time permits? :-)

Of course! I was going to say "Perhaps next time", but I didn't want to be too presumptuous. ;)

I do hope this game turns out well for all involved! ^^ It looks like fun.

Am I supposed to use 60GP in place of my class and background starting packages?

Biography

Aramis is from a family of guild merchants that came to Besander to raise a family and retire. They have a son whom whilst he doesn't have the vernacular for fighting has a keen mind and cleverness that is not too common amongst Dragonborn. He was born a runt which didn't help his chances of growing to reach full potential as a Dragonborn in terms of martial training nor making him appealing towards others of his kind. Whilst he was born in Barroc he has no memory of it as he was an infant by the time his parents had come to retire in the sleepy little village. Much of his youth was spent toiling and doing his part to help the fields and crops, just so he could fit in and not be a shut in. His off time was spent pouring over fables, legends and books, anything he could get his hands on in terms of knowledge. His true talents manifested however when the traders came in to peddle their wares as they do.

There he found a leather-bound book with immaculately white pages and a lock upon it. When he stopped to have a look at what he bought with his small savings he was disappointed to learn that there was nothing within the book. All the pages were blank yet he felt his mind becoming amazingly clear and focused whenever he looked upon the empty pages. He couldn't part with the book in spite of what he saw. He wouldn't stop looking over the book to try and figure it out. His parents, being merchants themselves found his fascination with the book to be both unhealthy and suspicious so they removed it from his person and sought the aid of the local elven wizard to determine if the item in question was cursed. When she came, she was able every quickly figure out what it was about.

There were magical protections upon the book that kept the pages blank. It still didn't explain the fascination and clarity so she asked the son to now look and see what was on it pointing out one passage in particular. Surprisingly he was able to read the markings upon it and inadvertently cast his first spell. A cantrip of minor tricks and pleasantries that allowed him to snuff out the candles at the dining room where this experiment took place. A spell book from an unknown wizard had found it's way into the hands of a person with a talent for magic. With this realization she took the Dragonborn as a rather unique apprentice. Needless to say he jumped at the opportunities this presented and whilst having a firm grasp of the basics he has become a proficient magic user.

Correct.  I will put the cat at around 3 gp.

Alrighty!  The application process is now closed; now for my least favorite part.  Choosing :-\

Okay, I'm not going to procrastinate for longer than I need, and just throw it out - it has been something of a difficult, if not painful process at times - so the chosen ones are:
  • RedPhoenix - LG Female Mountain Dwarf Fighter - Bretta Brassknuckle
  • Caitlin - CN Female Half-Elf Bard - Carmen Silverwood
  • clonkertink - LN Male Half-Elf Cleric - Damien Fairbright
  • Quasar - NG Male Half-Elf Paladin - Kyras
  • Frelance - CG Male Rock Gnome Warlock - Kess Strongfold
  • Elven Sex Goddess - CN Female Half-Elf Warlock - Domina
  • CeruleanSerenity - CG Female Tiefling Rogue - Iris

To say a simple thanks for your participation to the rest of you would be to cheapen the characters you've presented, so let me say instead, thank you for making it difficult for me. :-[

The rest of you have gathered your party and may venture forth! (to the OOC)
