Phntm888, Saleem Halabi, Diaz Ex Machina, ElbowtotheFace, thank you for the notice, and I wish you good gaming.
Recruitment is now closed.
Some of you may receive a PM from me asking questions about your character. If you don't, it doesn't mean you're not under consideration, only that I feel I have a handle on your PC and how they may fit into the party and narrative.

In addition to the number of submissions, this was a difficult recruitment for me because I have had the pleasure of gaming with many of you in the past and others of you I know and respect from just seeing around the boards. I decided early the only way to make it fair and not torment myself over who I was including or leaving out was to make my selection as blind as possible.
As such, I copy/pasted everyone's submission into a document without their name attached, read them all through, and sorted out the backstories that immediately made me want to GM for the character. Unfortunately, that still left me with far too many PCs to fit a table. So from there, I began trying to sort my short list into viable adventuring groups, by background, general alignment, and party composition.
At the end of the day, there are two Ways In to the adventure that I see, so I have decided to do the thing I always shake my head at other GMs about and say they don't know what they're getting into and run two tables. (Hey, I only have to make the maps once, right?) There are still PCs left out that I'm kicking myself that I didn't find a way to fit in.
Group one will use the discussion thread attached to this recruitment; group two will use this discussion thread.
If anyone drops out, I will offer spots to PCs from this recruitment thread; however, I hope that you will all find a game for your concepts. There is another Age of Ashes campaign recruiting right now over here, and I wish you all the best of luck!
