Welp. 18 in a week. I'll finally be able to see what's hidden in all those 18+ threads.

So, my body aches. I simultaneously want to sleep and don't want to sleep, want to eat, but can't be bothered to eat, and all that jazz. This is an issue.

Hey, there. Myst here, as you've probably guessed. Can't exactly write in other people's bios, can you? But, you're probably reading this for a reason, so I'll get to it.

I'm a something-teen guy from the UK, and I've a history of not being in education for a long period of time. However, I'm back in college and I'm on a Level 3 IT course. It's a lot broader than you'd actually think.

I prefer high-Casual and Advanced games, in a medieval, fantasy or sci-fi setting, because that's the sort of nerd I am. Most of my characters will likely be male, given that I am male myself.

You could probably call me a 'bleeding heart', given that my nature would make it very tough for me to be mean to someone who wasn't outwardly bigoted. Thus, I find it quite difficult to deviate from my morals in terms of characters.

Also, you can expect me to occasionally use 'fancy' words and ways of speaking in casual conversation, because I have a rather extended vocabulary, and according to the people from my secondary school, I apparently 'speak quite poshly'. Even though I'm far from it. And I'm a thinker - I've thought a lot on certain things, and am firm in my beliefs. So you could ask me what I thought about a good few things and I could give a well-reasoned answer. Or a less reasoned answer based on my morals.

TheCharactersOfMyst - This is my storage for past and present characters, and where I might occasionally go for nostalgia and/or recycling a character I've used before.

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.
@Vertigo Actually, it's a Paladin and two Clerics of War... so you guys have a lot of heals. But reminder that one of these clerics may not be playing, depending on when I actually start up.
@Vertigo Nah, you do what you think works best for your character. Worst comes to worst you all die horribly glorious glass-cannon deaths.

Ahem. I mean, no, no, that’s perfectly fine. You still have a few things to sort out in your writing sample, but other than that, looks good!

@LordOfTheNight Looks good to me!
While I do already have quite a few applicants, I always welcome more. If you want to check out the Tyranny Of Dragons interest check, feel free. We’re in sore need of non-spellcasters, from the looks of things, so if you want to apply, keep it in mind.
@Tangletail Other than a few incorrect words (too instead of to, Baulder instead of Baldur), looks good. If you could keep in mind my formatting request for the spells, that would be great, but yeah, other than that it looks good.

I guess I should be getting the actual thing up soon, hmm?
@LordOfTheNight Yes. Only very minimal information is required - a full description isn’t needed.
@Tangletail Alright... I just don't know how useful it is, or how likely it will be that you will encounter the one specific race that speaks Gnoll... that being Gnolls.
@LordOfTheNight I see. Therein lies the confusion. Your stats don't reflect what they actually should - which is the final number. So these numbers in the column labelled 'total score'.

@Tangletail It depends on where and how, tbh. Sebastian is the one that you're more likely to encounter if a fight is involved - he knows where to look, values fighting prowess, and is more likely to interject himself if a fight breaks out. Cassandra is more the one to wander the streets looking for someone who looks suitable, as well as acquiring the supplies they need. She's more of a negotiator but is willing to fight if things look dangerous.

@The Harbinger of Ferocity We've discussed your character, so most of this checks out already. The only note I have is that we don't need the whole thing when it comes to spells (you only need the first letter for the components, spell effects can be shortened - eg, Guiding bolt can be shortened to 'attack +4, 4d6 radiant, next attack has advantage'). However, I'm not going to nitpick too hard, especially since this is only meant as a reserve character.

I admit I did kind of forget that you're a new player, but please remember if there are any questions, you can ask. We were all new once, so it's not an issue for us to answer questions.
