The Lord Ruler's perfect capital city, Luthadel, is doing the impossible: rebelling. Skaa half-breeds are being taught the power of Allomancy, something that the Lord Ruler's obligators said only existed in the nobility. The enslaved skaa, with their murderous benefactor, now fight back against a living god's oppression.

So, the Inquisition was formed. The nobles begin to fear assassination from all sides. The times of nobility Mistborn killing each other are over. The Steel Inquisitors look for aristocrat traitors and insurgent skaa, and the skaa try with all their strength to merely survive. The Lord Ruler's perfect Final Empire is slowly devolving into chaos.

Ok, I said I'd put this up, so here it is: a guide to using d&d terms io character apps. All references are from the Player's Handbook and/or d20SRD.
First off are the explanations for the ability scores, skills, and proficiency. Next explains alignment and how character species/subspecies affects ability scores. Then, an explanation of feats. After that, items are explained.
Please, don't reply to this topic directly - just PM me. Admins and mods, all my character apps will use this, so please leave it up, if only for ease of understanding my apps.

Hello Abraxis. I am going to move this, as this section of the boards is just for character applications. Also, since we already have a character application template we will only be accepting characters whose applications are in our standard template.

I know. This guide is designed to aid in comparing characters' capabilities via their apps. Thus, modifications to the standard template are optional. These modifications will be in such a format as to not interfere with the standard template, and will be detailed in the last post here. An example is Caedrus' app, except regarding the snippet, which is combined for my first 8 characters. Please PM me about further issues, queries, etc.

We aren’t really a combat focused role play (as you will are from our story threads). The standard application is designed with that in mind and has suited our purposes thus far but I will take a look when I have the chance.

Hi Abraxas, and welcome!

You may have missed it, but our FAQ very clearly states that we do not use numbers, stats, or any sort of modifiers in this RP. We are narrative-based only here:


There's no system, skill points, or dice that we use here. This site is really about interactive storytelling, and we feel it can bog down the story to have dice or skill points. In addition, keeping track of these numbers would be a heavy burden. Such things work better on a tabletop RPG than a forum-wide RP.

As such, please remove all references to the PHB/D20SRD in your apps. Once you have, we'll take a further look at your characters. I'll be posting this reply in your other threads to make sure you and the other staffers see it. Thanks!
