Hi DM MP, thanks for the selection. I apologize I only posted the concept - thought I had more time (he will be a dwarf zen archer monk). I have the crunch done, will post it immediately. About me, I am an immigration attorney in Miami, FL and I have been playing since Unearthed Arcana came out for D&D. I am also a fan of rping video games, mainly Dragon Age, Oblivion, and Skyrim. I look forward to the game, as I have never played this mod.
Yes, I understand your concern. My job does get extremely busy at times and it has affected me in GMing games, but never as a player. I always post faithfully and that is never interrupted. I am applying as a player here. However, I can bow out, if necessary. It just seemed like a fun group to join. Let me know.
Here is the backstory. I tried it to make it heroic but it came out being a bit of a love story. :)
Kaegan Fellhammer, 8th son of Gorek Fellhammer, a notable dwarf noble and warrior of his clan, knew it would be many years before he was next in line for any title of nobility, so he lived his life lazily and with reckless abandon and irresponsibility. He was a ladies’ man (as much as a dwarf could be with 8 charisma) and was an overall disappointment, much to the chagrin of his father and his clan. Kaegan the Selfish became his honorary title. However, all that changed when he met Anora Twin-Axe, a beautiful young female priestess in training of Torag. It was love at first sight, but she had no time for the spoiled rich dwarf and resisted his advances at every turn. Even when he was so desperate for her attention that he joined the priesthood! She still resisted him. Determined to win her heart at any means necessary and desperate, Kaegan turned to his father for help. Gorek smiled at his son’s decision to change his life for the love of a female. Determined to teach his son the values of responsibility, honor, and clan, Gorek suggested that Kaegan, now a junior acolyte, travel with a band of dwarves on their way to assist the warriors in Mendev. Kaegan, having never before left the clan’s mountain retreat, was shocked at the horrors he saw on the battlefield. He assisted in tending to the wounded and that was the extent of his duties until the fateful night when devils overran the dwarves’ encampment and Kaegan and the survivors were forced to retreat to the ruins of a fort, warhammers in hand, until morning when reinforcements arrived. That night, fearing it would be his last, the selfish Kaegan finally heard the voice of his god and realized that the priesthood was his calling. He inspired the troops with his magic, healed their wounds until his magic was used up, and battled alongside his brothers in arms. He learned what it meant to be a dwarf. In the morning, still alive, Kaegan came upon Grundelyr, famed Warhammer of Defense. For his heroism, Kaegan was allowed to keep the hammer, since it had chosen its champion. Shortly thereafter, the battle-tested dwarf returned to his clan to the cheers of his family and the respect of Anora. Months later, that respect turned to love and then marriage at the young age of 50. A year later, the couple was blessed with Thargrim, a son. 30 years later, Thargrim, a curious dwarf full of wanderlust, journeyed to Korvosa with his uncle, Jergen, on business. Three months later, Thargrim disappeared, said to have been lured by the wiles of a criminal named Gaedren. Upon hearing the news of his son’s disappearance, a frantic Kaegan grabbed Grundelyr and swore to Anora that he would bring their son back or die trying. He has since traveled to Korvosa, looking for his son.

Ok, Thrynn and Jon. Here's the story: For whatever reason, as indicated in your back story, you found yourselves stranded in the Mwangi Expanse and paired up for mutual preservation from its dangers. You traveled for nearly three days before you reached this camp with guards this morning. As long as you pledged your song and sword to defend the camp from wild elves attacks, you were given permission to stay, even though you are ignored and treated as second class citizens for the most part. At least you got a warm bed to rest. At night, there was commotion that snapped you out of your reverie, as newcomers on a riverboat have arrived with supplies. Any questions or comments, please let me know.
Applicants thus far:
Scranford - how does your character get around requirement that shahepshifter archetype must take natural weapon combat style at 2nd level and not thrown weapons, as listed on sheet?
Rysky - given that main big baddie of Savage Tide turns out to be an antipaladin, going to say no to that.
Deadline for submission of characters - Monday, July 6, 7:00pm EST.
If recruitment is still open, I present Desmond Firecaller, halfling cleric of Sarenrae and reformed brigand. I will make an alias if chosen. I have so many. :)
Male halfling cleric of Sarenrae 4

The halfling named Desmond was born into abject poverty in Brevoy as an orphan. Naturally, his circumstances led him to life a thievery given his natural size and uncommon speed. He was not a skilled thief by any means but he small and fast so whenever he was spotted, he took off like the wind, using his natural agility. He was also very charming and wise. He distracted you with his cuteness before robbing you blind. He became known in the streets as Desmond the Fearless for his brave thefts. But Desmond was never a bad person. He did what he did to survive and the streets taught him to stay ahead of danger at all possible costs. He developed a skill for spotting the guards, other criminals, and other dangers that crossed his way. This skill proved to be quite valuable to a band of brigands who needed a lookout for potential caravan ambushes. Desmond was assured no one would be hurt so he went along with it. After 3-4 such ambushes, he became a favorite of the brigands for his great observational skills. Then one fateful night, while on lookout, he spotted an unusual caravan. The people all wore desert garb and covered their faces. The brigands ambushed the caravan and a cleric of Sarenrae was present. One of the brigands got too handsy and slapped one of the women, who just happened to be the cleric's daughter. A burst of fire engulfed the brigand and he died a horrible death. The other brigands ambushed the cleric, who could not fend so many attackers and he looked at Desmond for aid. The fearless halfling was too much of a coward to help and turned his back on the priest, who died a horrible death. He did however preserve the priest's holy symbol, the ornate sun medallion. For days after the incident, Desmond saw the priest's face in his dreams and nightmares and he felt a calling for the first time in his life. He ran into the woods at dawn and there he swore he saw the goddess appear before him, offering the halfling salvation. He immediately took it, bowing in tears at her feet and swearing his services to her if she forgave his transgressions. She did and Desmond abandoned the brigands stealing their gold in the process. He found a Temple to Sarenrae and trained for year in her teachings. A year later Desmond reappeared, no longer Desmond the Fearless but Desmond the Firecaller. He now seeks to spread Sarenrae's teachings all through the Kingdoms and if the brigands come seeking for him, he will be ready for them.
After a brief hiatus, I am taking this Savage Tide PbP up again. Party is currently 4th level on its way to 5th and is running a side trek adventure. They are currently on a riverboat up the Vanji river.
Party consists of:
I want to recruit 1-2 players, if there is any interest.
Sure, you're all stuck in the swamp of death and swarms...LOL. You went to find a special source of energy to fuel the riverboat you are on and it just happened to be guarded by a Shambling Mound, who severely injured Gruug, almost killing him. You vanquished the creature and were carrying the fuel source and Gruug back to the ship when you are ambushed by lizardmen led by a shaman. You vanquished them pretty easily and are going to resume your trek back to ship.
