    Concept: escaped prisoner on the run from both the people that wrongfully imprisoned him and the actual authorities.
    Wrinkle: Lawful good alignment;

    Human male ...older though not elderly. Not quite sure of class yet, likely a fighter or fighter/rogue.
    The cops in the back of that book are super cops... they're Jason Vorhees with a badge.

    We could do an all Human party

    Me knife-throwing Human Rogue NG alignment. He was a street urchin who took to the road and has lived a gypsy life for the past few years. He is not above a bit of trickery or working outside the law but overall he has a good heart and is loyal to his friends

    (the concept works in with Post Life Entity's prisoner on the run if we want to explore that further)

    Otyugh: "I like poop."
    PCs: "Umm, what?"
    Otyugh: "Do you have poop?"

    I'm not sure I'm feeling the all human thing. I mean, if that's the way it works out, then great, but I don't think I want to place that restriction on character generation.

    However, if you and Post Life want to get together on your backgroungs, feel free.

    On to other things:

    Start at 5th level
    28 point buy
    Standard PHB races
    No evil characters
    Use psionics if you must, but know that I'm not personally familiar with them.

    I'll take submissions for a few days and then make my decision on 4-6 chatacters to continue on. It is _not_ first come first serve.

    Until then, keep the submissions coming!

    My Character Concept

    How About It....

    Golgothal... the slayer.
    Githyanki ranger who focuses on killing aberrations.
    Like most of his race... except for one thing. He hates Undead... and therefore... hates his people's leader, the Lich Queen. And he's a good guy.
    Living in the land of chaos is not always safe.... and Golgothal's mother found that out the hard way. Having been banished from her home because of her disagreement with the current political situation, the githyanki woman carried her only child with her when she left. She lasted a whole three minutes. A great rip in the fabric of reality engulfed her, annihilating her utterly, but sending her newborn babe hurtling through space and time.... to land in "insert chosen backdrop here". He landed, miraculously unharmed, in a Wood Elf glade. Being naturally curious, they took him in and raised him. Teaching him aboutthe fallible evil that had encompused his race, and the right way of good, the elves trained the young Githyanki in the fighting arts. He became a ranger of quite skill and agility... with a kind heart unlike most of his race. He has recently sent out on a quest of self discovery, trying to come to grips with the evilness of his race, and how others view him.

    And that is it....
    What you think?

    Sounds like an interesting concept, but I think I'd rather stick to the standard races from the PHB. I edited the guidelines to reflect that as well.

    Concept: A smooth-talking, quick-witted, charismatic preacher and man of the people. He gets along with everyone and can defuse tensions with his quick turns of phrase. His style and mannerisms are as smooth and stylish as his speech, and he's popular with rich and poor in his community, especially the ladyfolk. It's hard to catch him in a moment of hesitation or in a situation where he's at a loss for words.

    Race/class: human or half-elf cleric

    Martok is the by-product of an orc raid on the local druidic grove. His mother, Selenia, survived the attack, and continued her druidic duties. Most outsiders do not trust Martok because of his heritage. He has spent his years with the druids as a ranger. While the local elven community does not like his heritage either, they have come to respect him as a defender of nature. Selenia has told him that it is time for him to venture beyond the forrest for a time.

    I'd like to see more about this character. How long has he been on the run? For what crimes is he accused? Is he out to clear his name, or does he just want to run as far away as he can?
