201 to 245 of 245 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | next > last >>

I'll post the shortened version of the thing I sent Clebsch (reading over the pages/applications I missed, I probably sent way more info than I needed to, hahaha.)

Tiefling Alchemist, Trickster:

Appearance
Personality:
I filled out this quick reference personality sheet to give a fast overview. Some other themes:
Loneliness/Low Self-Esteem - Naali grew up unpopular as a child because she was different, and has always worked very hard to gain the praise of others. She always carries board games with her, because as a child, it was the only way to make the other children interact with her.
It also shaped her religious views, driving her towards Sarenrae, who seemed to accept anyone who was a good person, regardless of background or appearance.
She is quick to accept others, and sometimes too trusting.

Hard Worker - Naali works very hard so she can be the best at what she does. Sometimes her drive to achieve puts her in dangerous situations, as she sometimes overestimates herself.

Short Bio:
Naali grew up with her mother in the city of Egede in Mendev. Her human mother, Almorra, was an herbalist in the city, running a small shop that she founded soon after Naali's birth. Naali's demonic ancestry was immediately apparent when she was born, and her mother wanted to keep her safe in a hometown where people would understand and be accepting. Naali grew up in the shop, learning about the herbs and mixtures, and eventually helping her mother run the day to day operations. She spent many years like this, as her mother grew older and she stayed looking the same. Eventually Almorra passed peacefully in her sleep, but other inhabitants of the city became less friendly towards Naali on her own. They resented her looking the same as she had 30 years ago, and the shop started doing badly. Naali eventually sold the property, donating almost all of the proceeds to an orphanage, before embarking on a life of travel.

Naali was drawn towards Kenabres and the Worldwound, especially upon learning of the rarer herbs that grew readily in the region, where most were too afraid to look for them. Unfortunately, her bravery was a bit more than she could handle, and soon she found herself stuck in a ruin with cultists camping outside. Luckily, and to her surprise, a mysterious woman came to her rescue, helping Naali sneak by and distract the cultists and protected her until she was found by a patrol of crusaders. Since then, Naali has remembered the beautiful woman fondly, and most recently had unofficially pledged herself to the crusade in whatever way she could, hoping to see the woman again. She found herself in Kenabres, learning more about combat and the Worldwound, training to take part in the war effort.

Character tie ins are neat. Naali would have been in Kenabres since a bit before the 'Chance Encounter' trait. I don't know how long ago that could have been, and tieflings live a long time, so it wouldn't be ridiculous if she's been there for several years by now. I'm sure there's some reason she'd meet others.

Edit: Oh geez, top of the page. *Hyperventilating*

Just read your background Karas. A very interesting and well written story. Very well done. I enjoyed reading it. I wish you good luck in the recruitment!

Thank you! I very much enjoyed writing it even after the original was eaten by the forums lol. I was worried it wasn't as good but it's really reaffirming to hear a compliment! :)

Velkaria is very well written too! Quite the personality.


You're welcome and thank you! I enjoyed how you did your homework on the Worldwound lore as children born so close to it would most certainly be exposed to planar energies. And also a very interesting way to introduce the silver dragon Terendelev not to mention creating a connection between your character and her.

I had to do my homework on not only tielfing's but also Shelyn, Jalmeray, and rakshasa, figuring out how a divine goddess give birth to a tiefling. And I enjoyed designing her personality too.

I was a bit nervous myself actually as I was worried that I went overboard! But it's good to hear that you liked her! Thank you!

All right, so some new characters to enter into the possible mix. I'm going to be working for most of the day after I post this, but the cut-off for new characters is still noon (EST US). I may not have any announcements to make until Wednesday morning, so don't hold your breath the rest of today. Thanks for the feedback and enjoy possible backstory collaboration. Even if one of the characters you connect with does not get selected and your character does, it will help give you more connection to the game world. I might work some things into the story, but saying more than that would be to give out spoilers.

Just so you know, my work schedule shifts every five weeks. Currently, I'm just starting 5 weeks of working from about the middle of the afternoon to late evening on Monday through Thursday. Then it will be back to a day shift schedule working from about 7 AM to the middle of the afternoon, M-Th. It's not a full time gig, so I usually have lots of time to post in the hours I'm not working. I'm not prone to large amounts of overtime or other irregularities so I should be pretty consistent despite such a shifting schedule. I'll keep you posted as things go from night to day.


Cleaned up a little of the language in my application (mostly in the character concepts portion), because it was a little clunky. The application is updated in the profile.

Good luck, everyone!

Thank you for letting us know. You just spared my F5 key from an otherwise brutal day. In fact, I think I just heard it let out a sigh of relief. :)


Recruitment is officially closed. I'll announce something in 24 hours. It may just be the final 12 from which I'll narrow the decision down to 6. Should have final announcement in 48 hours at most. I will post news here first and then PM final selection as well.


Take your time! No need to rush.

Even if not selected it was nice to see all the great concepts! Take your time. We'll be here.

Real life has been extra busy this past 24 hours, so I've made no progress on the selection. Looks like it will be 24 to 48 hours before I'll have news. Sorry for the delay.

Well, that's a downer but understandable.

I'm thinking you haven't discarded anyone yet or made a short list, right?


Thanks for the update!

Silver Crusade

Thanks for the update! Hope everything is going okay.

I'll be trying my best to wait patiently.

I am endeavoring to remain patient but I am so excited to see who gets picked! No worries about the delay.


Seems the gods are still deliberating. Maybe they can pass a budget while they're at it...they have as good as a chance as anything else! =)

A Jester's tale while we wait:

"Upon a cave were three men,
who sought glory, gold and fame.
The first a strong proud Kelish man,
A Knight of Everflame.

Second a vogueish, rogueish sort,
who stole for fun, for glee.
A halfling man with half a mind
to take from you or me.

Last a man a day from death,
this wiz was one so wise.
His life had but a few breathes left,
till he chokes and croaks and dies.

The Paladin of Sarenrae
charged in with a yell.
But to the holy man's dismay,
He tripped, he slipped he fell.
And a paladin, when they fall,
must pray, redeem, atone.
He threw himself onto his knees,
in prayer upon the stone.

The tiny little halfling knave,
who always acted bright,
walked cautiously into the cave
after he lit his light.
And a torch in hand the man did see
a laid out iron strand.
This wire we must all agree,
tripped the man from Lands of Sand.

The wise old wizard wandered in,
senile in his age.
He gave the rogue the widest grin,
'Nothing cantrip a mage.'
"

I hate to say it, but I'm going to withdraw from this recruitment. Though it's full of awesome, energetic people... Well, my confidence that I could stomach that much Pathfinder is waning, and it would be a real shame to get burned out partway through by the same issues that drove me away from the system in the first place, especially when there are so many awesome people wanting a spot. So count me out, and I hope you all have fun. :)


Sorry to you go. I wish you good luck on your further adventures!

Clebsch is just building the suspense.

Actually though, it's exciting.

It has been an unusually busy week, sorry to say, so I'm just now settling down to consider pros and cons. [I'm a teacher and this is the first week of a new term and I've had to develop some new assignments, which takes hours of time that I'd usually have for role play.] I'll try to have a decision as soon as possible. Thanks for being patient.

Is this part of the test? Are you testing our patience and commitment? :)

Seriously though, what's your best guess on 'as soon as possible'?

Game on!

It takes as long as it takes.
We are in no way a priority over teaching.

Do what you need to Clebsch. We'll be fine so long as the wardstones hold out.

Totally. Real life comes first. We'll see you back here when you're ready.


Absolutely RL comes first :)


Indeed real life comes first always. But take your time Clebsch we will be waiting for you! And you're welcome!


I'm away for the weekend, so if I get selected I'll be a little slow for three days.

Silver Crusade

Take your time! I'm fine waiting.


I know how you feel - I'm working 9 to 10 hour days with an hour plus commute on either end of it. Oh, and my work computer system blocks the boards so no posting for me during the day =(

Good think my wife goes to bed early and I get a couple of hours to be online each night!!

Besides, anticipation makes it that much more interesting! =)

Now excuse me while I go attend to a few matters - my patron is calling and he is not patient...

Drum roll. The following characters are invited to post on the discussion board in preparation for starting the adventure path as soon as characters are ready to go. It was a difficult choice with many good characters and players left out. Best wishes to those who did not make it and keep an eye out for a PM, in case one of my first choices drops out. I'll invite another character to fill the hole if it happens early enough in the campaign.

Franti the Fool
Avelina
Ellena Lovain
Tauni "Rabbit" Desba
Karas Argentus
Anarya

I want to thank all the players who posted for your interest, your comments, your enthusiasm, and your spirit of adventure. May you always make your saving throw!
