D&D 5E 5e Exploring a New Frontier OOC (Closed)

ADVENTURE SEEKERS WANTED!
Now seeking a few brave souls to cross the ocean in pursuit of Fame, Knowledge and GOLD!

Captain Tyrlius Faroshi is seeking a few brave souls to join him in his pursuit of the legendary treasures of the New World. Long thought to be a myth, the existence of another continent far to the west has sparked much speculation throughout the city of Haven. With the nations of this continent just starting to recover from a major war, the Council of Peace in Haven is helping to sponsor the expedition, under the hope that a new world to explore might help aid the peace process in the old. If you are interested, meet him at the “Shalimyr’s Embrace”, near the docks, on Stormblessed Eve. [Stormblessed is the 4th month of the Council Year, Stormblessed Eve is a special holiday between the 3rd and 4th months.]

Character creation:

I’m looking for 4-6 5th level characters who have an interest in exploring a new continent. If more than 6 people are interested I reserve the right to pick and choose.

Creation Guidelines

You get an extra +1 to one ability score, but this cannot be used on an ability you get a +2 racial bonus on.
Hit Points: Max at 1st, then average for 2-5. (d10=6, d8=5, etc.)
500 gp to equip yourself, and you may have one uncommon and two common magic items.

Backgrounds: I’m very flexible and willing to entertain custom backgrounds.

In! It’ll be nice playing a lvl 5 again.

Exploration, huh? Someone willing to leave their life behind and start something new and unknown? I’ll ponder a bit.

Since they are unavailable why does it matter?

Well, the OP thought it important enough to mention it. But since I can't tell what he's talking about clarification is needed....

Unless of course you wanted Gauntlets of Ogre Power or a Headband of Intellect. But if you did you might've figured it out.

Might being the key word. Probably not. Because I wouldn't be thinking of those initials when picking items.

I would be interested if there's room, sure. I might use Lily, my halfling rogue.

5e (Recruiting) Exploring a New Frontier (5th level characters)

I’m looking at a Kensei monk. Still deciding on race. I really want a Genasi, I just always play Genasi. Can’t help it. They’re awesome.

Jumping back and forth between an Air or Water Genasi.

Edit. I’m going with Water Genasi. Gonna say he’s the brother of a Water Genasi Rogue I played with my brothers’ group. He was awesome. This will be his more disciplined, but just as wiley, younger brother.

I’m viewing my Genasi as less a monk and more a Master Swordsman. Disciplined and self assured. I haven’t picked a background, yet. I need to give him a real motivation for going to the New World so he doesn’t end up a stock character.

Just throwing some ideas out there.

Seeking a legendary sword, said to exist within "the Highest Mountain in the West" according to ancient legend.

The Folk of Water and Air have always existed together. Ancient legend refers to others, born with the powers of fire and earth, but none have ever set eyes on them.

Oh, I'd love to join. I've been wanting to try a Scout/warlock character for a while, but don't want to step on [MENTION=6801311]KahlessNestor[/MENTION]'s toes. Perhaps a wizard or divine caster, no one seems to have claimed those roles?
Cheers,

I’m having difficulty with the background. Nothing really fits. Here’s what I’ve got.

Rolan Dye is the younger son of Corealis, a powerful Sorcerer and highly ranked among the Water Genasi (Who in my original tale had at least a city to call their own). His older brother, Ryder, was a Rogue who became fairly well known, mostly for his silver tongue many said could convince a devil to come to his side with merely two words! (This actually happened to me. The chain devil starts running at us, and Ryder says “We’re Friends!” I rolled a 20 on my persuasion, and the devil rolled a 1 on Insight. It was glorious.).

But alas, even though Ryder and his Frostbrand Rapier became well known in the outside world, among the Water Genasi he was a troublemaker who caused an unending series of problems for Corealis. Seeing this, Rolan was determined to be the “good child”, and follow the laws of his people.

Showing an aptitude for discipline his brother never had, Rolan managed to impress a Master Swordsman into taking him under his wing. He toiled for years, mastering his body under the tutelage of this Master Swordsman. He has since claimed the title of Master Swordsman for himself.

But he is more like his brother than he let anyone know. He longed for adventure, to leave the confines of his home and travel the world, as his brother did. He wants to win a noble blade, befriend those from strange countries, and generally live life. When he heard of this expedition, he began convincing his father, and his old Master, to allow him to go, to find a blade that had been whispered of in the West. They reluctantly agreed that such a boon would only help their people, and therefore agreed to let him leave.


So...what background would fit in here? Rolan is fairly young. I could do Knight, but he really isn’t one. Or soldier, but he really isn’t that either. Thoughts?
