I really wish there was an @everyone function on here... ah well. I'll do that later.
Just a quick update; I plan on having the official thread up by Monday; if you haven't completed a character yet, please make sure to do so, as I will be setting a deadline soon after that. Everyone else, please await a PM from me telling you if you have been accepted, and instructions to follow after that point.
Thank you for the notice, I look forward to it, @CollectorOfMyst, should you have need of me, of course. Until then, best of luck on your endeavors and the modified story arc; I suspect it will contain more surprises than even the original and there were a fair number of those to begin with.
Hi! Applications have been reopened, as due to the potential withdrawal of some players, we now find ourself lacking a tank. In the case that you would like to apply, please consider playing one of the following classes: Fighter, Paladin, Ranger, Barbarian.
I would like to stress that the character example sheet is an example of a high end character. I do not expect more of you than what can be provided.
Actually, would a Warlock/Fighter or Warlock/Barbarian be fine for this lineup? I was planning to start with my martial class level 1, then evolve into developing a pact later down the line. I have an idea for a very in-your-face "hit me" build that mixes the beefiness of martials with the revenge spells that Warlocks have, but as far as levels are concerned, it's a very Warlock-focused build.
@Rondo of Blood For multiclassing, I personally go by these rules; You must qualify for all of your stat requirements. If you are a cleric wanting to dip into rogue, you must have 13 WIS and 13 DEX.
You must reach a minimum level of 3 in order to multiclass once. If you want to multiclass again, you need to have a minimum level of 6 (combined, so it could be cleric 4/rogue 2).
I'd also like to advise you that if you are planning on doing a spellcaster/martial build, don't go with Barbarian. Barbarians cannot cast spells whilst raging, and since that's something you want to be doing as often as possible, maybe stay away from that. (Also stops you from needing to spread yourself too thin - Barbarians need STR, DEX and CON, and Warlocks need CHA. A Fighter just needs STR or DEX.)
@Vexxed Vex We're still open, yeah! The current party consists of a kobold storm sorcerer, a kenku rogue/eventual arcane trickster, an aasimar monk (in my own personal headcanon, they're hard to distinguish from humans), and potentially a tabaxi war cleric, though the player in question may be changing that.
@Rondo of Blood@Vexxed Vex Oh! I will also say, if you guys are accepted, you won't be a part of the main group immediately. In this case, you should change 'how did your character meet Sebastian/Cassandra?' to 'What was your first day in Greenrest like?' or 'What were you doing before the attack began?'
Basically, it's the same concept. 'A day in the life of X' - you've recently arrived in the town of Greenrest. Your purpose there could be similar to the others - you were hired as a bodyguard to protect a merchant or noble on their journey into town. Maybe you're just on your own journey. Or you could have had your own reasons - come up with your own, or ask me for a special one. And then the dragon and an unknown army attacks.

Also the main draw with multiclassing Warlock into Barbarian is using the non-concentration armor spells like Armor of Agathys while raging, and taking advantage of the Warlock's utility while my rages are down. It also helps that the Fiend's level 1 ability has really nice synergy with the Barbarian's Reckless Attack.
That said, I'm actually looking more into a Paladin/Warlock now due to its synergy. Just to clarify though, so the earliest entry to multiclassing is at level 4, or could I enter my second class at level 3?
Was thinking to do a standard Devotion or Ancients Paladin into Hexblade with some eerie weapon shenanigans honestly. I was considering keeping Warlock at a sorta low level, so it's more temptations than anything.
