Regarding Applicants - I am looking for greener and fresher-faced characters to join in this Campaign; enough substance
to add some of their own personality to the party; with less over-abundant pages of backstory or previous roleplay engagement.

This Campaign is reliant on progression, and more accepting of characters with lesser established roleplay under their belt.
This is for the benefit of the roleplay; its opportunity of progression; party engagement and Dungeon Master material - in what can be conjured.

Name:                 -  James Cassingrove
Race:                   - Human
Profession:          - Weaponsmith
Desired Class:     -  Warden
 
Brief Character Backstory (this will affect the prologue event of your character if accepted):
- James Cassingrove - once one of the most promising young blacksmiths in Stormwind. Abandoned at birth by his irresponsible mother, James was found and adopted by a family of Bronzebeard dwarves and was raised in Menethil Harbor. The young Cassingrove sought to make a name for himself. Following the steps of his everloving adoptive father Mogi, a blacksmith, James travelled through Khaz Modan in his teenage years learning the craft and studying the Eastern Kingdoms' native ores and minerals, with the advantage of fluency in Dwarvish taught to him by his mother. He met with renowned artisans and ambitious journeymen who taught him the profession inside out throughout the years, allowing him to settle in Stormwind and estabilish himself as a respectable weaponsmith. After the events of the Cataclysm, James returned to Menethil Harbor only to find his childhood home ravaged by disaster, with none of his family members to be found. Desperate and wayless, James quickly became an alcoholic and fell into depression. Surviving on his craft and heavy liquor, his face quickly spread amongst posters and warning signs around the Wetlands, where he made a home for himself plundering and assaulting caravans with his intricate traps and mechanisms. In a chaotic search for purpose, James Cassingrove stumbles upon an unexpected fate..
 
Brief Character Personality Synopsis:
- Although James used to be a mild mannered and rational young man, his mental health has gone downhill after the events of the Cataclysm. He has become a bitter, cynical and scheming drunkard, as he seeks to find someone or something to blame for his family's disappearance. He is grumpy, unsettled and impatient.
 
How much time can you commit to the campaign?
- I work 12 hour days on a fixed pattern so I have free whole days to spend. I work Saturday and Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Monday, with four days off in between each cycle. I will have a week of holiday starting on the 20th April, so I will be able to participate in the first event for sure.

What time zone are you based in?
- UK
 
Are you comfortable with character death for this roleplay?
- Yes, as long as it is not something stupid like getting crushed by a free falling boulder, I'd like for it to be somewhat meaningful and related to the character's struggling search for self-purpose.

Name:                 - "Captain" Gershwind Ehrhardt
Race:                   - High Elf
Profession:         - Archaeologist
Desired Class:     - Marksman
 
Brief Character Backstory (this will affect the prologue event of your character if accepted):
Ehrhardt is.. well, the simplest explanation is "late". Born in Quel'thelas, he showed an early interest in the research - and eventual acquisition - of Highborn Elven antiquities. Born too late to make any true breakthroughs into Quel'dorei history, he nevertheless found a niche in Thalassian culture as a treasure hunter and 'specialist of artefact acquisitions'. When the Orcs fled to Kalimdor, he joined the Kul Tirans in pursuit - solely, of course, so that he might lay first claim to any new archaeological discoveries. He was very, very far away from home when the Sunwell was destroyed. The expedition dragged for months. By the time the archaeologist returned, his people - the High Elves - were no more. The Sin'dorei had left for Outland in massive numbers, and his entire civilisation was shattered. Refusing the temptation of the Fel, Ehrhardt was technically exiled from Quel'thelas. Years have passed, and he has yet to return. Cut off from magic, he drifted from digsite to digsite, claiming artefacts in the name of his people, but more often than not selling them for miserly profit. 
 
Brief Character Personality Synopsis:
- Captain Ehrhardt is an arrogant, self-obsessed narcissist. He cannot stand getting dirty, being hurt, or being inconvenienced in any way. However, in these tough times, when the fortune you are so clearly owed is nowhere to be found, he is beginning to buckle down and think within the realms of practicality. He is as likely to aid the Horde in the excavation of an orcish tomb, as he is to appear amongst the Guild of Explorers on a jaunt into the deserts of the Eastern Kingdoms. Anything that keeps gunpowder in his pistols, and food in his belly.
 
How much time can you commit to the campaign?
- As much as I can! I can pretty much always make myself available, with enough warning.

What time zone are you based in?
- UK/GMT
 
Are you comfortable with character death for this roleplay?
- Usually, yes, but I love Gershwind far too much to let him go out like a chump!

Name:                 -  Badoula Oblongata
Race:                   -  Goblin
Profession:          -  Engineer
Desired Class:     -  Shaman
 
Brief Character Backstory (this will affect the prologue event of your character if accepted):
- Badoula Oblongata is about as Goblin as they come. Born and raised in Booty Bay, she's spent most of her life navigating the intrigues of the Steamwheedle-Blackwater alliance, and trying to build a reputation as an engineer, in order to make her fortune. She isn't very talented. Mostly, she's fallen into doing basic repair-work, kitchen fittings and plumbing, dreaming of one day setting up a workshop of her own. Booty Bay - hive of scum and Goblainy that it is - sees all sorts passing through, and Badoula's used to meeting people from all over the Alliance and the Horde. 

Soon enough, however, Stranglethorn is ravaged by storms that tear the land apart as Deathwing soars overhead. Many of Badoula's friends and acquaintances go missing, and work begins to dry up, as the focus of the Cartels shift away from Booty Bay. It became a turning point for Badoula, and she began to realise that she wasn't getting any closer to having the stability and independence she wanted. So she tucked all her belongings into a backpack, and set off, heading North, in search of work.


Brief Character Personality Synopsis:
- Badoula is chipper and personable, always pleased to be meeting people of all walks of life, but still a Goblin, and often met with suspicion. She frequently assumes the best of people, and wanders into danger because of it. Cheerful vice.

 
How much time can you commit to the campaign?
- I work up to 6 hours a day on weekdays, am thus generally around! 🙂

What time zone are you based in?
- UK/GMT
 
Are you comfortable with character death for this roleplay?
- I've a fondness for Badoula, and will have to say no. Perhaps eventually. Any other consequences thrown my way I accept gladly.

Brief Character Backstory (this will affect the prologue event of your character if accepted):
- Relena Snowbreeze, born in Winterspring and spending most of her life there alongside her mother. Living alone in the more isolated planes of the snowy mountains near the ruins of the old highborne kingdoms, they lived as simple lives as they could. Living off what they knew of the local animals and plant life, working with the goblins of Everlook as local healers and guides- evidently on a hunting trip her mother was gorged by a lost boar who was armored up to be a mount. Leaving Relena to trying to tend to her mothers wounds but eventually failing in the endeavor. Leaving her to be lost within the snow of winterspring
 
Brief Character Personality Synopsis:
-Relena is an optimist with an (annoyingly) chipper voice, talking about the better of every situation and how after everything blows over they could get some hot chocolate with marshmellows. She usually sees the good in everyone but is extremely hot-headed, and if she is pushed enough she will eventually start giving death threats over someone shooting her optimism down.

Race:                   - Human
Profession:          - Enchanting
Desired Class:     - Sorcerer
 
Brief Character Backstory (this will affect the prologue event of your character if accepted):
-Camilla Cliffmour – Aspiring Enchantress.   Camilla was the Niece and Apprentice to Enchanter Ramus Cliffmour, who was the proud owner of “Cliffmour’s Enchantments” One could find his store in the Mage District of Stormwind or catch the jolly man strolling with his niece through the park. Camilla saw her uncle as a father figure and aspired to become just like him. When she was of age, he arranged a pilgrimage to Ironforge to grasp an understanding of how their neighbors perform their own enchantments. A week after her arrival the Cataclysm happened, Camilla took the next tram back to Stormwind to witness the ruined Park and rushed home hoping to find her uncle but found that he was not there. She prayed to the Light hoping he would return but to no avail.  Weeks passed before she came to terms with his death no body was found, and she felt uneasy burying an empty coffin. She’d take down the sign and close his shop packing things away to be locked in the Cellar. There she found a Box, locked away with a letter attached for Her. Within the box contained a Tome and Necklace, when she placed the necklace around her neck she saw an echo of her beloved Uncle expressing his love and desire for her to discover what type of Enchantress she’d like to become. A flame was kindled within Camilla, she sought to learn what Azeroth had to offer and to one day be the Enchantress worth of her uncle's store.

Name:                 - Marcia Pike
Race:                   - Human
Profession:          - Deacon
Desired Class:     - Cleric
 
Brief Character Backstory (this will affect the prologue event of your character if accepted):
- Marcia has always been altruistic and charitable. Even in childhood, she always took the opportunity to help her friends with even the most menial of tasks. This meant she was cherished by the small village in Northern Lordaeron where she resided. This amicability from her peers, and some small prodding from her parents, led her to join the clergy and become a priestess when she was but a teen. Such an early initiation, of course, only amplified her qualities, and she became a sort of paragon of her abbey. However, with time, she became more and more secluded, and opted instead to focus on her studies. After all, there was much she had yet to master, and even more she had yet to learn. 

After the fall of Lordaeron, Marcia was left without a purpose for a time. She had no choice but to take refuge in the regions unaffected by the blight of the scourge, which eventually led her to the new human capital of Stormwind. There she took residence for the foreseeable future, and found a position within the Cathedral of Stormwind. She has been keeping faithful ever since, hoping that one day she would be able to return and see her home once more.
 
Brief Character Personality Synopsis:
- Marcia is a soft-spoken, kindhearted clergywoman, who busies herself with the needs of others over her own. Her faith remains unchallenged, and she believes with every ounce of her being that the light will prevail in all. She especially shies away from battle because of her affectionate nature. However, that is not to say she lacks prowess, and she would jump at the chance to assist an ally in any way she can.
 
How much time can you commit to the campaign?
- I am mostly free during the day, but can't reliably stay active past 8 or 9pm.

What time zone are you based in?
- UK/GMT
 
Are you comfortable with character death for this roleplay?
- If warranted, yes.

Name:                 - Elric Albrecht
Race:                   - Human
Profession:          - Explorer, Peddler of Rare Relics
Desired Class:     - Sorceror
 
Brief Character Backstory:

Born in a small hunting community in the Highlands; at a young age he was sent to Dalaran for his studies together with his twin sister. Rebellious and callous, with a deep seeted need for knowledge he was aspiring to be a sucessful mage, but after the Scourge had sacked the city he found himself far away from and lost, with his sister missing and presumed dead. He spent some time as a mercenary, working odd jobs just to sustain himself while looking for his sister, and interesting artifacts and books that may deepen his knowledge of the arcane.

 
Brief Character Personality Synopsis:
Well spoken and educated, a lover of the arts and music. He's narcissistic and cold, borderline apatethic towards strangers.
 
How much time can you commit to the campaign?
Enough time.

What time zone are you based in?
GMT+1

Yes, if it makes sense.

Name:                 - Perton Derryn
Race:                   - Human
Profession:          - Questing Swordsman 
Desired Class:      - Paladin

 

Brief Character Backstory:
- A young man that has been serving the Brotherhood of Northshire for a few years and, after his trials, aspires to be a full and true paladin. 

Perton is reluctant however to speak of his wealthy upbringing and his past in general, saying only that he petitioned the Brotherhood without the support of his father, Lord Anton Derryn, a Stormwind noble whose line is renown for their mercantile exploits.

Since he could not be sponsored as a squire, Perton chose the route of the questing warrior instead, and has taken part in many small skirmishes against the lesser threats of Elwynn ever since. He is confident that his deeds will prove worthy of his knighthood, even if sometimes the man seems to be trying to convince himself of that fact more than anyone.
 

Brief Character Personality Synopsis:
- Perton is best described as an ally of justice and of all that stand for a right cause, though often this makes him look down on those that don't embody the ideals that he ( and most importantly, the order he seeks to be a part of ) represents. He has a tendency to overcompensate his insecurities through unabashed impulsiveness and one-upmanship, traits that can sometimes cast a shadow over the very ideals he strives to uphold and cherish; a fact that concerns some in the Brotherhood.

Despite these faults his heart stands in the right place, and Perton shall abide no wicked and wantonly cruel people in his company.
 

How much time can you commit to the campaign?

- WHENEVER I'M NOT RAIDING ULDUAR IN THE EVENINGS.

What time zone are you based in?
- GMT+1

Are you comfortable with character death for this roleplay?
- Snake... HURT ME MORE.

Name:                 Zevana Hollowsong
Race:                   Quel'dorei
Profession:          Exotic Dancer
Desired Class:     Warlock
 
Brief Character Backstory (this will affect the prologue event of your character if accepted):


Zevana was one of the Quel'dorei to survive the fall of Quel'thalas and take refuge among the denizens of Dalaran. Unlike her brethren, she did not consort with demons and find herself locked away by Garithos. Things would change, of course... Over time. The woman began as a sorceress. A capable one at that. She served her people as a combatant on the front lines, utilizing arcane to take down enemies of Dalaran during the Northrend campaign, and subsequently after the Shattering during the wake of Deathwing's madness.

It was in Northrend that she met Nolric. A man that lead her down the path of power. And demons. Though she'd always been told of the dangers of fel, and how the Sin'dorei let it control them... Here was a man that had done the opposite. No consumption. No loss of control. He controlled it. She saw his power on the frontlines. Draining enemies, consuming their souls and using the power to boost his own magic and keep himself alive. It was fascinating. And so she began her studies.

Over the course of Azeroth's struggle against undead and shadowy monsters, Zevana trained her abilities, taking up the proper mantle of Warlock during the campaign against Deathwing. She commanded fel, consumed the energy of her enemies, and crushed those in her wake. Unlike Nolric... She was not humble about this. It changed her, made her haughty and spoiled. And so it showed. She believed herself incapable of failure, and worthy of greatness... And that attitude would follow her all the way to Pandaria, where she planned to unlock the ancient history of the lost land and make it her own.
 
Brief Character Personality Synopsis:


Zevana is a high brow, haughty Quel'dorei who has bratty tendencies. She's been spoiled by her power and knowledge, and fails to acknowledge her own shortcomings. From her looks to her abilities, she believes herself a cut above the rest. This can make her reckless and overbearing when not put in her place. As with most brats, a proper reprimanding does keep her off her pedestal when enforced from time to time.

As an exotic dancer on the side, Zevana's adoring regulars have convinced her she is the pinnacle of beauty. Frankly, she is quite pretty, but the confidence she exudes can be nearly overwhelming. When necessary, she'll bat her lashes and pull out the charm to get what she wants, but she'd never admit she actually had to try to get it. In Pandaria, she knows she's going to need allies. And begrudgingly, she'll take what she can get. Her allies have never been up to snuff, in her eyes, and have fallen around her time and time again during the battles presented to her on Azeroth. She prays one day this will change, but has little hope for those that accompany her.

 
How much time can you commit to the campaign?

Name: Brisha
Race: Half-Orc
Profession: Brawler
Desired Class: The Fighter - Berserker
 
Brief Character Backstory:

Brisha was cursed from conception. Her mother forsook her the moment she was born, and so she spent much of her early life in orphanages across Alliance lands. There, she faced all manner of terrible things: abusive matrons, deriding peers, and cruel townsfolk all served to embitter her to the world. She was swaddled in violence, and so, once she was of age, she did what she knew best—she fought. A life of brawling in tavern basements and back alleys was not at all what she desired, but it was all she felt she could do. At least until she crossed paths with a kind soul in one of her frequent haunts; it was her words that empowered Brisha to do better, to be better. From then on, she vowed to make something of herself. She would not perish on the streets like a mutt… instead, she would be a hero.
 
Brief Character Personality Synopsis:

Brash and a touch insolent, Brisha was not exactly the most enjoyable person to be around. She was quick to judge and even quicker to insult; such behavior was standard for her, however, so she did not see any issue with it. Bullheadedness got her more brawls, and therefore more gold. Now that she is moving into the next chapter of her life, she may realize that this attitude she held onto is more harmful than helpful—she is in the prime time of her life to change as a person, and so time will tell if these traits remain. Conversely, a more positive aspect of her personality was her compassion; she would always stick up for the little man, no matter what, for she knew how torturous it was to be on the very bottom.
 
How much time can you commit to the campaign?

A lot, probably! I do prefer doing things on Fridays and Saturdays; if I have anything to do, it’s usually on those days, and I usually get done by 2 PM or 3 PM EST.

What time zone are you based in?

EST!
 
Are you comfortable with character death for this roleplay?

Absolutely. Mess her up.

THROMGAR HOWLSTEEL
THE SCION

𝅘𝅥𝅯𝅘𝅥𝅯𝅘𝅥𝅯


BRONZEBEARD DWARF
Wandering Scion

Desired Class:     - THE DEXTEROUS MARKSMAN
 

Brief Character Backstory
Let nay any father, brother or uncle tell thee of the Story of Thromgar. Shame has come to his Clan, his Thegn-and-Father, since his birth. Eighty years have passed since the day the old Thegn of the Howlsteel Clan in the far reaches of Dun Morogh would father his first and only son, with the young and boisterous Brida, Clan-less and wandering maiden of dun Morogh. Sadly, her life was restless, and the old Thegn did not interest her as he did once. Indeed, Thromgar is a creation of one of her illustrious adventures out into the fields of merriment and debauchery. Quickly, the Thegn sought to legitimize his bastard, still needing, and wanting, a song. However, the hot blood of his mother seeped through Thromgar, and those that saw him as Bastard would also see him as scoundrel and fool. He preferred the flute and lute, over the song of the hammer. he preferred to use his voice and guile, rather than that of his power, even as a Son of a Thegn. And he never preferred to cross short distances, seeking to take his enemies on with bow and arrow- and from the back. Despite this, the Scion of Howlsteel Clan would become popular, not only to other hot-blooded and Young Dwarven men and boys, but also to many a woman. Finally, the Thegn sought to teach him of life, and has now sent out the young Dwarf into the wider world, that which he does not know of as much as he'd want to. Besides, how bad can it be...?
 
Brief Character Personality Synopsis: 
Thromgar is hot-headed, arrogant, playful and quite charming. The Dwarven features are there, but his beauty compliments his voice and demeanor. Preferring parley and speech over blood and steel, he will always seek the route of the bloodless. Though this may ostracize him from other Dwarves, he does not care for such barbarities and prefers to go with the teachings of his mother: Peace before War.


How much time can you commit to the campaign?

Though I have my own projects and different things I work on, you can expect me most of the time, or at least try to get into the RP any time I can.

What time zone are you based in?
EU, GMT +2


Are you comfortable with character death for this roleplay?
Yes. Kill me.

Name:                 - Jebeddo "Scumbleduck" Ningcl
Race:                   - Gnome
Profession:          - Scholar
Desired Class:     - Occultist
 
Brief Character Backstory (this will affect the prologue event of your character if accepted):
- Born in the trade port town of Menethil Harbor to a couple of quiet-living anglers. There he grew up learning the fishing trade of his mother and father who had moved away from Gnomeregan not long before his birth. Mr. & Mrs. Ningcl were oddly content, for a pair of gnome, to be spending their days in humble trade and fishing by net and rod. Jebeddo was never satisfied with the monotony of it as discovery and ingenuity was in his blood. After saving up enough money dozen years after he had come of age, he left his life there behind to venture to Stormwind where he would learn all he could about the world, its history, and the wonderful complexity of magic.

It was within the city of diversity he began a career as a scribe under the tutelage of a wizard within the Mage order, Ramshar Widalin, a fellow Gnome at that. There he spent his days joyously creating copies of history books, learning the lore as he went, as well as translating foreign languages and archaic dialects, which he acquired through the mentorship. The tomes that interested him the most to work on, however, were that of magic, arcane or otherwise. The less practiced and secretive the art, the more he desired to learn of it. This is what lead to his unfortunate descent down the rabbit hole of the occult.

Ramshar was always quick to dismiss Jebeddo's questions into the occult, calling the arts a lesser form of magic where risk outweighs reward. While, yes, all knowledge is good knowledge, the wise know what not to dabble in. Jebeddo, as intelligent as he was, still lacked the wisdom needed for such choices. His pursuit of the forbidden arts lead him to find like minds within the lower circles of the order. He did not make it far in his haphazard practices before him and his peers were discovered. Mere expulsion from the order was admittedly a lenient punishment given the damage such practices have dealt in the past.

Though being removed from methods of formal practice, Jebeddo still seeks to further himself in his practices as well as learn additional schools when possible. It will be a hard road ahead outside of a library, but there will be plenty to discover out in the unknown world.
 
Brief Character Personality Synopsis:
- Truly a knowledge seeker. He takes joy in reading about events of history and learning about how magics, deities, and otherworldly beings work. While occult may be his practiced school of magic, he doesn’t have a specific set focus on any particular subject. He just likes learning about all of it. He'll often be seen writing notes when coming across new locations or even recording conversations with strangers. As for how he is emotionally, generally good-natured. He is one who would help other people out with menial tasks should he see them struggling. Being a part of a settled community was once important to him, but now he considers his momentary company his community. Often becomes frustrated with disorder and likes things to be labelled and organized.
 
How much time can you commit to the campaign?
- I generally work 40 hour work weeks on shifts that can change week to week. If I'm not working I'll normally be available to play.

What time zone are you based in?
- Mountain Standard Time (-7)
 
Are you comfortable with character death for this roleplay?
- Yes I am. The risk of failure and loss makes reward and success all the greater. Having genuine consequence is healthy in RP.

Brief Character Backstory (this will affect the prologue event of your character if accepted):
- Born in the trade port town of Menethil Harbor to a couple of quiet-living anglers. There he grew up learning the fishing trade of his mother and father who had moved away from Gnomeregan not long before his birth. Mr. & Mrs. Ningcl were oddly content, for a pair of gnome, to be spending their days in humble trade and fishing by net and rod. Jebeddo was never satisfied with the monotony of it as discovery and ingenuity was in his blood. After saving up enough money dozen years after he had come of age, he left his life there behind to venture to Stormwind where he would learn all he could about the world, its history, and the wonderful complexity of magic.

It was within the city of diversity he began a career as a scribe under the tutelage of a wizard within the Mage order, Ramshar Widalin, a fellow Gnome at that. There he spent his days joyously creating copies of history books, learning the lore as he went, as well as translating foreign languages and archaic dialects, which he acquired through the mentorship. The tomes that interested him the most to work on, however, were that of magic, arcane or otherwise. The less practiced and secretive the art, the more he desired to learn of it. This is what lead to his unfortunate descent down the rabbit hole of the occult.
