    1 What game system are you running (D&D, Call of Cthulu, Palladium, GURPS, etc.), and if applicable what edition (Original, Classic, Revised, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 10th, etc.)?

    D&D 3.5

    2 What 'type' or variant of game will it be (i.e. "Shadow Chasers" or "Agents of Psi" for d20 Modern)? What is the setting for the game (eg. historic period, published or homebrewed campaign setting, alternate reality, modern world, etc.)?

    Monsters. Most likely as cops.

    3 How many Players are you looking for? Will you be taking alternates, and if so, how many?

    4-6

    4 What's the gaming medium (OOTS, chat, e-mail etc.)?

    Play by post.

    5 What is the characters' starting status (i.e. experience level)?

    12th level. Half way to 13th level.

    6 How much gold or other starting funds will the characters begin with?

    99000 gp

    7 Are there any particular character classes, professions, orders, etc. that you want... or do not want? What are your rules on 'prestige' and/or homebrewed classes?

    Monsters of course.

    8 What races, subraces, species, etc. are allowed for your game? Will you allow homebrewed races or species? 'Prestige' races or species?

    Monsters!

    9 By what method should Players generate their attributes/ability scores and Hit Points?

    32 point buy. Max for first hp. Average for the rest.

    10 Does your game use alignment? What are your restrictions, if so?

    Yes. Evil characters are allowed, but please understand the department has PR concerns.

    11 Do you allow multi-classing, or have any particular rules in regards to it?

    Mutliclassing is allowed.

    12 Will you be doing all of the die rolling during the course of the game? Will die rolls be altered, or left to the honor system? If players can make die rolls, which ones do they make, how should they make the rolls, and how should they report them?

    I'll make enemy rolls, and any private rolls.

    13 Are there any homebrewed or optional/variant rules that your Players should know about? If so, list and explain them, or provide relevant links to learn about these new rules.

    Gestalt, with the monster's CR equaling one side of the gestalt.
    Monsters will be slightly tougher then normal.
    When you submit your character, I'll randomly determine 3 CR 17-19 monsters, and using a ADR (average damage per round) determine if you would beat said monsters. If you beat more then 1 of the monsters, the character will not be accepted.

    14 Is a character background required? If so, how big? Are you looking for anything in particular (i.e. the backgrounds all ending up with the characters in the same city)?

    Yes, and when you are selected I'll be adding how you got into the police department.

    15 Does your game involve a lot of hack & slash, puzzle solving, roleplaying, or a combination of the above?

    Mix of all three.

    16 Are your Players restricted to particular rulebooks and supplements, or will you be allowing access to non-standard material? What sources can Players use for their characters?

    If it's out of core, ask for the book first. Assuming I say yes. (I probably will) cite it with the book and page number

    Appearance

    Show

    Sy'triniaza is a tall busty and curvy young draconian. Her slender platinum wings are adorned with a few rings of gold, her platinum scaled tail shows the sign of a gentle life. Her light mocha skin shines gentle, while platinum scales mark sections of her thighs, sides, and arms. Her hair is jet black and shimmers metallically as it tumbles to freely to her thighs. Her bright platinum colored eyes shine with a playful nature. She usually wears little, an eccentric draconian unused to the cultures of the mainlands peoples. What she does wear though is a black side split skirt that adorns her shapely hips, a pair of black boots that rise just below her knees, and a bikini-top. The top which gleams with a metallic red symbol of her homeland. Upon her arms are a set of armlets that look to have seen better days, an band of black metal encircles her neck, and a black simple ring adorns her slender and clawed hands.

    Some history roughly done...
    Spoiler
    Show

    Sy'triniaza was sent to these lawless lands to conduct a ritual her mother, and her mother's mother, and countless predecessors have done since her tropical nation began. She is to return to her homeland with accolades as benefiting the magically inclined Platinum Family and she must acquire them from the lands beyond the shores. Should she fail to do so she will be exiled for all time and while Sy'triniaza is a playful girl who loves to tease and play pranks upon her peers, she loves her home dearly and would die to be sent away from it forever. Of course she suspects that they have sent her away because of her behavior and hopes the journey will improve and mature her allowing her the insight with which she will one day rule their nation with.

    So here she is, in the strange and unusual lands beyond the tropical island nation of Szune. A place where clothes are common place, where not everyone obeys the laws, and where the strong prey on the weak. Of course she fell prey to this, a few cunning people tricked her and kidnapped her. Selling her off was no issue, no one had seen a Draconian in centuries and her exotic coloring made for a quick lucrative buck for someone. Kept under control by a collar she was bought by a powerful man(-thing?) who held a part of the city under his terrible brutal thumb.

    She was occasionally shown off to his fellows and many wanted more than a piece of her. Eventually however he taught her the deadlier edge of her martial skills. She would steal for him, kill for him, she could not resist him. And yet others could. Late one summer day, a small group assaulted her master's home and in the chaos she broke free of his control. Her rampage brought the building and most of the block to a burning rubble. Those hunting for her master found him in a small shattered room begging for forgiveness. Of Sy'triniaza there was no sign.

    Until recently. Starving perhaps, without direction, she has decided to help the forces for order and peace in the city. As long as they keep her fed she has promised to use her skills for the city. As long as she is fed she'll do anything they ask of her. Mostly.

    Let's see how many of your characters I can actually identify...

    Spoiler: Knowledge Checks
    Show

    "Nature - Frost Giant" - (1d20+22)[34]
    "Religion - Half-Celestial" - (1d20+6)[15]
    "Nature - War Troll" - (1d20+22)[26]
    "Planes - Moon Dog" - (1d20+6)[18]
    "Planes - Naztharune Rakshasa" - (1d20+6)[21]
    "Arcana - Platinum Half-Dragon" - (1d20+6)[22]


    So, Psalacantha can recognise Frost Giants and Half-Celestials, War Trolls, Naztharune Rakshasa and Platinum Half-Dragons, but doesn't know what a Moon Dog is. Well, that's more of you than I was expecting to identify!

    +24 Sense Motive, +27 Bluff, +27 Diplomacy. Psalacantha as good cop to Sirus or Slissht (who also has her intimidate trained, to +22) as bad cop looks like our best interrogation team. The main issue is with persuading Psalacantha to join in the interrogation when she's got her heart set on doing... well, anything other than an interrogation.

    Just realized that because of lack of skill points I didn't put many into, you know, the useful ones. I think it would be best if I were just in the room and using my church inquisitor abilities on him as someone else interrogated him.

    Illven do you mind if i change my skill points a bit, I have no idea why I have 15 points in craft weaponsmithing yet none in sense motive when I have it as a class skill from my prestige class. I think I just put the points in craft as a to be determined later and forgot to use them. (So essentially can I just try to redo my skill points? I'm sorry I just want my skill points to reflect my characters background I won't be too disappointed if I can't though.)

    So from what I read, the split up seems to be Psa, Shiver, Sisus, and Thoros are interrogating the prisoner.

    While Malicious and Sy'triniaza go to the academy?

    I'd like to get a cross class rank in Autohypnosis (knocking down spot and listen by 1), so I can take 10 for the DC 15 check. It's a bit more rules legal when trying to act as a telepathic interpreter than concentration, and it lets me remember what I was interpreting as well as let's me memorize the files and such.
    And so doth the winds of destiny change my course for better or worse for the whole of time.
