Joining the Campaign

Post by shai-hulud » Thu Nov 16, 2006 3:50 am

Sharn: The Rising Night will be a play-by-post game for six characters of 6th level. Create a character and send it to me, either by PM or through email. I will select six players from among these. I also have several special roles that may pop up from time-to-time, should anyone be interested.

The campaign is set in Eberron, and applicants should have some knowledge of that campaign setting. Those of you who are not selected will be placed on an alternates list in the order in which I received your submission. If a character is killed or a player quits, the next alternate will be offered a position.

Due to the nature of the campaign, I would prefer players who are experienced in both play-by-post and with the 3.5 rules. I would also like to give first choice to those who are not already involved in a game on this forum to give others a chance.

I will accept submissions until Wednesday, November 22, 2006 at noon EST. I will make my selections by Friday, November 24.

Please add Eberron to the subject line if you are sending me an email. My automatic Spam filter works with terrible indiscretion :twisted: . I hope that no one's submissions have been deleted :-P. If I have not responded to you, please send again with Eberron in the subject line, and I will get it.

Everyone, here is the list of players:

Tech Trooper (Jason) - Grug
Ceroill - Galeth
Catalyst - Rain ir'Talayin
beltzclan - Jear Florellan
valinor - Auric Aeram
Sunbolt - Sunim
draconas - Art
irdeggman - Goratash

What I need from everyone:
  • Why are you in Sharn?
  • What do you do in Sharn (for a living)?
  • What is your faith? Do you belong to a church?
  • Who do you know in Sharn?
  • Do you have any associations?
  • Where do you live in Sharn?
    • Upscale
    • Middle Class
    • Lower Class
    • Theater District
    • Red light district
    • Adventuring district
    • University district
    • Political district
    • Service oriented district
    • Proximity to xyz within city (where xyz is something your character has interest in)
  • Why are you an adventurer?
  • What does your character do for fun? How does he unwind?
  • What are your characters goals, both short term and long term?
    • What steps is he taking to reach those goals?
    • To what degree would he go to achieve these goals?
    • Are any of these goals guided by faith, or some other facet of your character that can be bolstered through the storyline, perhaps to the point where his ideas are given life? (Ex: A character following Dol Dorn believes that fighting is a means to protect the weak, and should not be used for any other purpose. He then witnesses a man fend off a gang of huligans trying to mug an old man, only to be stabbed mortally. The gang runs off, so the man was successful. His dying words are, "Thank you Dol Dorn", with a big smile on his face. This would be the type of thing that would be an affirmation of your cause. A counter example would be a villain citing Dol Dorn as he uses the Strength of Arms to crush his enemies, inciting you to action, as this villain is misusing the gift of Dol Dorn. It becomes your goal to stop the villain from oppressing the weak). I apologize for the very long description.
Please have this information to me by Monday, as that is when I hope to craft my first post. I am hoping to have enough time to take a 20 on the craft post check. If you have any questions, I will be checking fairly frequently.

Just a reminder to:
beltzclan - Jear Florellan
valinor - Auric Aeram
Please have stories to me soon so that I will have enough time to create the first post, possibly even some time to ask you questions about your backgrounds.
