    [​IMG] I'm looking forward to having the guild rounded out. 7 is a good start but I'd like to see another 7 or 8 members join when ALFA comes back up.

    [​IMG] Count me in!

    As soon as I've thought about my Monk's background a bit anyway. ;)

    [​IMG] Here is the link again. http://63.210.143.48/ It may change once the real site is up but this should still get you to where you need to be.

    As far as having a paladin, you are more than welcome. And I never really thought of power word kill as a fancy spell. ;)

    [​IMG] Yeah, Voltric. I'd like to see us up around 20. That would give most people a good chance of finding ~ 4 chums to go adventuring with whatever time of the 24/7 they live in.

    Of course, Bateluer will be joining AORTA as well. I'm sure you could use my unique talents.

    talents? i look good in a catsuit (studded leather-for her pleasure) can distract the enemy with my 'assets', can sneak, open doors, render traps useless and buy the first round at the pub :) i can also make shish kebabs of thine enemy whilst whipping the buttocks of evil (muhahaha)
    same old stuff, y'know

    [​IMG] Erran,
    I want to play but I've been procrastinating.
    I have yet to look at what is involved with an ALFA application?
    As far as AORTA is concerned, are you still accepting members?
    I notice that Lord Bane is a Monk that will perhaps be in your ranks, I too would like to be a Monk, are two too many?
    One last thing, my knowledge of 3E rules is limited, how detrimental will this be to my application when ALFA opens again?

    Don't worry about the 3E rules, at least for the app. If you are up on 2E you be fine. There are not any question that apply to the rules that much. Just make sure you brush up be the time NWN comes out. Knowing what's going on will be vital in playing the game and making your character.

    [​IMG] Hi and welcome Lord Moeken.
    Your timing could not be better, ALFA should be opening its doors to new members today or tomorrow.
    AORTA is still accepting new members.
    Don't worry too much about 3E, that's more a problem for the DMs. ALFA has said many times what they are looking for is ROLEPLAYERS, not rules lawyers. Check out the AORTA FAQs for some background info. If you want to play around with what your monk might be like in 3E, download the FREE 3E character generator from www.wizards.com
    then go games, electronic, master tools.
    You may notice that with the choice of feats and skills no two monks will be the same -its almost like having your own personal kit.
    Plus you have a wider choice of races and multi classes; so while one may chose a human who later becomes monk3/fighter1 another chooses a halfling who becomes monk2/wizard2 or whatever. Which partly answers your last question - yes several monks are good!

    [​IMG] Voltric : 3E PHB&MM (more or less anyway)

    And Erran, I'll finish my Monk and send it to you one of these days, ok ?

    [​IMG] One more quick question:
    As far as the application to ALFA goes, how important is our character's birth place and present location within the realms?
    If I want to be an AORTA member is there somewhere I should be?

    [​IMG] ALFA does ask for a character history. And that history is one of the most important parts of getting accepted. I don't think your birth place matters much as long as it fits into your history. If reference to your current location, I just felt it open ended for my PC, but we did have AORTA at that time.
    The guilde plans to start in the dales region. The ALFA maps will be finalized at the end of the week so we will know what server we'll be on.
    You could write that into your history if you want but I don't think it will be an issue if you are a little vage. Remember they are looking for good RP not a history lesson of FR.

    Good luck and welcome aboard.

    [​IMG] OK here's the scoop: I'll tell y'all more about this later, but since we are all in to roleplaying I'd like you all to roleplay your induction into the guild. We are at present outside Waterdeep, near a place called Bargewright Inn. Don't worry if you didn't put that on your cv, they don't keep track.

    Here is my intro for Voltric,

    The sun slides behind a cloud and the wind increases its constant assault upon the population of Waterdeep. The figure approaching the inn pulls his reddish-brown cloak closer about his frame. He stops in front of the inn and extracts a scroll case from under his cloak, pulling a sheet of parchment from the case he compares the name on the parchment to the sign over the inn’s door. “bargewright” he mutters under his breath, “Here we are”. He strides through the door into the dim smoky interior.

    After order a warm drink from the bar he finds himself an empty in a corner. He removes his cloak and leans back in his chair. Several regulars in the bar glance over at the new stranger. He is a younger human with shoulder length brown hair held back by a strand of leather thong. He blue eye, set in a weather beaten face are his only remarkable feature. His white tunic and black hose appear of good quality under the layer of dust from the road. He is wearing a wide leather belt with a number of pouches and scroll cases arrayed around it. Even though he is wearing a light shirt of chainmail, his only obvious weapon is an iron capped oaken staff he leans on the wall behind him.

    He raising this drink to his lips and surveys the public room.
