Iä! Good luck to everyone. I'd like to swap a spell out before the deadline; not a big deal. I'm inspired to read "The Mound" by HPL now. :)

Yep, lots of great submissions here. Best of luck to everyone!

Gottfried up now for consideration and ready... not sure if parish priest is a profession skill but its on there.

- Bastard Sword weilding human magus bounty hunter/investigator. Zas is a young man, in good shape though a bit short. His bastard sword is unique, in that it is a black blade, a sentient weapon that he has bonded with. When not using his arcane or martial abilities to track down bounties, Zas is often found in one fo the towns taverns or gambling dens.


Zas is a careful thinker when it comes to magic and his job but a risk taker with his money and with women. He likes to analyze problems but once his mind is made up, he pursues his goal quickly and isn't afraid to take some chances (life is more exciting that way). Though in very good pysical shape and in possession of a quick mind, Zas is not nearly as charming as he thinks he is or wants to be. He generally has a tough time talking his way out of a situation and is not the ladies man. Hence he usually relies on his magic and sword to speak for him when his mouth has failed.


Zas is a local. Despite all its failings, this is home and it holds a certain charm and place in Zas's heart. Usually working for pay, bounty, or treasure Zas has a soft spot for home.

Connection to Commander Garus:

Beat the commander at cards and instead of payment has opted for a favor owed. Be it a Job or Tip down the road, or some "official" leverage is needed.

Connection to Arlend Hyve:

An authority on regional history and lore, Arlend has been Zas's go to person for knowledge on the arcane and legends. Zas also relies on Arlend for tips on local ruins, treasures, and maps.

Connection to Rupman Myre:

A successful merchant of middenstone, Rupman courted Zas's sister. Recently they were married, with Zas giving away his sister. Zas still has mixed feelings regarding the marriage, as he stills sees her as his little sister.

Three significant events:

1. His father's Death and his sister's marriage. With his father gone and his sister in capable hands, Zas has much less reason to stay.

2. Knowledge. Since befriending Arlend Hyve, Zas's knowledge of the Arcane has grown. The wealth of history and Knowledge that his freinds posseses has provided many clues to aid Zas as he seeks to blend blade and spell. Recently though, Zas has hit the seeming limit of that knowledge, at least in areas magical.

3. Adventure. Zas likes the adrenaline rush or combat, the risk of gambling, and the thrill of chasing young woman. An adventure of heroic scale would appeal greatly to his thrillseeking ways. Besides, those who return, usually do so with increased wealth and Power.

Called to investigate:

1. Experience - When not drinking, gambling or wooing, Zas is an Bounty Hunter/investigator.
2. Skilled - Zas has some skill in interogation and has knowledge in the arcane.
3. Ability - Skilled with a blade, ability to cast spells, strong, smart, and quick, Zas is able to handle the danger that comes with the job.
4. Conections - Zas knows some people, from hsi time spent drinking and gambling. There's a certain guard, Commander Garus that owes him, and Zas is willign to take a job or a tip as payment.

Cherished item:

Black Blade bastard Sword. This blade called to Zas the moment he found it. Strange that his father would have hid this blade away all these years. More surprising was that the balde was magical and sentient. Zas is still exploring the fast growing conenction between hiself and the sword.

Job or occupation:

Bounty Hunter and Investigator. Zas takes on bounties, be they criminal or monster. He will also accept private jobs, often recovering lost or stolen items. occasionally he supliments this with winnings from gambling (or looks a lot harder for work when loosing)

Polish redone... and I'm out - I'll stick with my two entries. Making 5th level characters is a lot of work.

For what its worth I am a few PbP's and I maintain regular posts - normally 2-3 a day on average between the discussion and gameplay threads per game I am involved in

Zas's profile should be pretty much complete, except for gear.

Any questions or comments let me know.

I submit Grigore Golea a human diviner

Iozef's background:
Iozef Kolnikov was born and raised in Carrion Hill. Growing up, he showed a great deal of promise with the ability to retain knowledge, which would in turn, lead him to the man he becomes. Well, that and an incident that occured when he was but a boy. His mother was bearing his sister, Iolana, and during it all, Iozef nearly lost his mother during the process. If it weren't for the midwife, she would have surely perished.

Iozef has never forgotten that day. Ever since, he knew what he was calling was to be.

Being the studious fellow he was, his parents had scrimped and saved for several years so they could send him to a school of higher learning. Once accomplished, they sent him to Caliphas where he could further his education. Living his whole life in Carrion Hill, being sent off to Caliphas was quite the experience. Having always lived at home with his family, he had no idea what to expect. But it was for a greater purpose, so he was ready. He would take advantage and learn all he could on death, and how various cultures would celebrate it.

After returning home and settling back in, he made his way to the temple of Pharasma and was taken in as an acolyte. After a short time--being as well learned as Iozef is--he was given a position within the hall of records.

Iozef mostly keeps to himself, but when he manages trips into town, he makes it a point to stop and see Arlend Hyve. He always enjoys their talks. Arlend's endless knowledge on that of Ustalav, has always fascinated Iozef.

Along with his trips into town from time to time, Iozef would occasionally run into Old Man Marshan. He always had a tale to offer. Iozef always found him a bit annoying, but refused to be rude and would halt whatever errand he was running and listen. He never realized one man could go on so many grand adventures. And as much of a hindrance it was to have to stop and listen, Iozef couldn't help but find such tales fascinating.

More often than not, his trips consisted of visiting Rupman Myre's and informing of what information was acquired about his ancestors. The man was determined to know if his family line could be traced back to the Ustav lineage. No matter how many times Iozef had come back with a response of: "Nothing yet.", Rupman was determined he was related somehow. Iozef didn't mind, though, he enjoyed delving into records.

Reason for investigating strange occurrences, defending the city, or finding a murder: Iozef has lived in Carrion Hill all his life. This is home. This was his ancestors home. If he was called upon in any situation to where he could be of some help, he wouldn't hesitate to respond.

Iozef is 6'5", 215lbs, and is 26 years old. Tall and lanky, he is straightfoward, brusk, yet respectful. He owns a book that consists of his family tree his parents passed down to him when he became of age. He keeps it with him at all times.

Yay - a cleric!!! And a Thematically satisfying cloistered one.

You told me about your busy schedule. Let me know if you need more time and how much. I'll see what I can do.

Well it's a little past 11 am my time and I probably need at least two hours. Juggling this and work and work keeps interfering.

Edit: Incidentally, I am working on a Half-Orc Sorcerer with the Orc bloodline. Kind of a mix between sorcerer and melee combat. So if that isn't something that fits for you, knowing that now might make the decision easier.

Given that little bit of info, I don't think it would fit so well.

Okay, no problem. I'll withdraw the submission.

That's it for recruitment. I will post my selection later today.

The applications were mostly all of very good quality. Always makes a DM's life harder.

I wish to thank everyone who has put together an application. They were all well thought out and made decision hard.

The selected players for the game are:

  • Helaman: Grigor Vachkov, Human Urban Ranger
  • Javell DeLeon: Iozef, Human Cloistered Cleric
  • Joana: Mireza, Changeling Witch
  • John Woodford: Windle Thetra, Human Inquisitor of Pharasma
  • ZetaGilgamesh: Valiard Tessar, Taldan Rogue

The chosen players can head to the discussion thread.
