RTJ & Character Creation
Requesting to Join

1. Most importantly, read all available Notice threads before sending across a RTJ. Do not rush your application.
  1a. I would recommend reading through at least some of the available story threads so you get an idea of the posting style of the existing players and what can be expected from the game and of yourself when joining.

2. Secondly, I am looking for good writers and role players over game system experts or powerful characters.

2. Game will be played using the standard Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition ruleset. Some knowledge of 5th edition is recommended. No knowledge of the Forgotten Realms setting is required.

3. Allowed Sourcebooks - Any other source not considered
Player’s Handbook
Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide
Volo's Guide to Monsters
Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes
Xanathar's Guide to Everything
Tasha's Cauldron of Everything.


4. The following is not permitted
No race which has a fly speed at 1st level.

5. I am anticipating to accept only one party of four to five players to this game, playing one character each. Applications will be open for 48 hours from the Wanted - Players advertisement and the selection process may take up to one week. I will be in touch with all players who follow the RTJ guidelines and keep them updated on the progress of their application. Players will be selected based on their concept, character class, background and writing ability. Ability to match the posting pace of the current party is also an important consideration.

6. When submitting a RTJ I would like the following information.
    Character Name
    Character Race and Class from allowed sourcebooks
    Appearance, one solid paragraph
    Personality, one solid paragraph
    Brief Background, no more than 500 words
    Optional: I do love character portraits

Please also answer the following questions.
    In a Dungeons and Dragons game what % of the following are you seeking? %? Roleplay %? Combat %? Puzzles
    How and why is your character in Athkatla?
    What are your future plans (1st to 4th level) for the character? (In character plans and any multiclass plans.)

  6a. Please submit only one character proposal.
  6b. I do not want a character sheet. If you send a character sheet your application will not be considered.
