Sneak Attack-You gain the sneak attack ability of rogues. At first level it will progress the same for a rogue of the same total level as yours. If taken at higher levels, say level 5 is where the feat starts counting your levels, so at level 8, three levels from 5, you would get +2d6 sneak attack damage, like a rogue who was level 3.

World details:
Named World of Chaos or Chaos
Game takes place in one of the villages. All villages are ruled by the Kor, who lives in the capital.
Chaos is basically like any core D&D world, weather/terrain wise.
Kor Slyven Thunderstorm rules the villages from his capital of Falling Leaf. He serves Gor Haila Swiftfeet.
Elves rule the world. Non-elves are slaves or second-class citizens. Elves are not standard elves; they are Evil.
There are no half-elves, as the elves kill all elves who consort with any non-elf. There are no gnomes, elves have killed them. Other races are enslaved or are treated as second class citizens with little or no rights.
Elves have outlawed music and barditic traditions as it encourages dissent and rebellion. Magic, through wizardry, is only available to elves, non-elves practicing magic are killed on sight. Sorcery occurs randomly, the Elves hunt down sorcerors and compel them to serve them. Elves have outlawed monastic traditions and paladin orders, as both are a source of dissent or rebellion to their rule.
The law of justice is as follows: Elves will recieve a trial, other races are simply killed if they are accused of a crime. The Elves do not investigate either.
So thats everything.

I'm interested in playing, but was wondering where the game was happening? In the header it says "n/a" and in the post it says "here". You're running it on a chat page, then?

I'd like to play a dwarf or half-orc. Probably fighter.

I did have some additional questions: Can you describe the village situation? Are there stereotypic race locations (i.e. dwarves and orcs live underground, etc.)?

Can you describe the history a bit more, as far as how the elves took over, how long ago that happened, if there is organized resistance, are there other kingdoms or city-states that are not controlled by the elves? Are there memories of the monastic/chivalric orders that characters could aspire to refound? Are there half-elves or gnomes that exist in hiding (like you describe sorcerer characters)?

The setting sounds cool. Let me know if you have room.

Thanks,

I'm interested if you still have room, but could you clarify the playtime? Are you wanting to play all five weekdays, or some combination of them? And what time/timezone? If I'm misunderstanding the chat play format (not message board), I apologize.

The elves just took over. They have been in charge for 1500-2000 years. There is no official resistence, there are some isolated groups. There may be some who remember the different orders as legends some.

The village is controlled and run by the elves. Its a base for housing for the workers for a local mine.

Dwarves don't live underground. Not anymore. Orc don't live underground.

There are no groups of gnomes or half-elves in hiding. It is easier to hide one's sorcerory talents than to hide one's being a member of the gnome or half-elf race.

Playing in the Pen and paper games chat. Playing one of the days listed a week. I am using pacific time, being in the state of washington.

I'd like to play a human barbarian.
I'm living in Argentina, so coordinating playing time could be a problem.
Thanks

I am definitely interested. I am new to the online dnd world so just talk to me some and I will make a character for the game and download any needed programs. I used to play multiple times a week until i moved. I am very knowledgeable about the game. aim me at MegaMDude when you get a chance, or pm me on here (preferably aim though if you have it).

I have two players with finished char sheets, so i have 4 player slots available.

Also, I need times for people, as in when they can play so a time can be made up.

I can do monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday, friday.

After 1pm to 10pm. Thats Pacific standard time, as I am in washington state.

When players get their characters done, can I get a backstory posted in here, as well as the char sheet or a link to it? If you don't do this, I am dropping you from your slot.

You can call me Sam McGeer. Some people see me, most don't see much else. I have been surviving the past season off of the scraps of food that those bastards at the shop called trail rations and a running stream. My camp has been undetected thus far, slightly outside of the capitol of Falling Leaf. I have avoided becoming a slave by sticking to the woods, and taking out and of those ****ing elves that get in my path. It all started about a season ago when my friend and I made our escape from a slave camp several days walk from Falling Leaf. Unfortunately, he was stabbed in his face during the escape. I am waiting for my chance to get back at those foul creatures for the years of torture I endured... its all I ever knew. I will be available for recreational elf hunting or retrieving most bounties after 2 PM Pacific.

I've pretty much hated elves my whole life. My parents wanted nothing more then to live in peace, they tried to appease the elves in hopes that they would leave our family alone. When i first showed my magical aptitude, my parents were worried that I would be killed. They tried to force me to never use my cursed powers for any reason, but it was like putting a lid on a boiling kettle...sooner or later it will blow. When i was scared or angry it would just spontaneously happen, objects would move, flashing lights, etc. When the elves finally came to the house my parents sacrificed themselves to save me. I vowed then that i would avenge my parents death, though i am far too weak just yet.

I'm usually available after 4PM Pacific, Fridays are preferable for me.

I am the elf Nyrail I hail from the Taizair family line an time old and honored group of wizards that fully support the government but secretly help the minor races especially sorcerers hide or find some form of liberation they're interests are less about good then simply wanting to know everything they can about magic having found this way an easy way to study innate magic. I was recently released from a towns militia having received my 4 years of training and service i know seek to learn the ways of my family.

Backstory

Joon fled her owner's tender care with her sister, Evee, leaving death behind. Evee died from wounds improperly tended about a week following their escape, as they tried to get as far away as possible. Consumed by grief, Joon devoted herself to Destruction to seek vengeance for her sister's abuse and death. Though Evee killed their master to make escape possible, Joon blames all elfkind and seeks their downfall. For now, she works on the edges, building her strength and waiting for her chance to do more.

The new characters look good.

Absidey, you have a long spell list. Were you just putting all the spells of level 0 and 1 in your sheet to mark them individually if they are memorized?

Sounds like after 2pm works, after 6 to 10 works for some, fridays work. Time not yet picked out. Waiting for all the slots to fill.
