Eh, why not.

Name: Solomon Mutatio
Gender/Sex:Male
Age:31
Bio: Solomon was born in Jerusalem not as a Muslim or Jew or even an Orthodox Christian, but a Catholic. That in itself would not have been too strange if he wasn't a full arab going back for quite a few generations. While Jerusalem was particularly tolerant of faiths under the laws placed by it's leaders, he still felt odd being one of the few Arab Catholics in the city. He wasn't accepted by either group too well either. As Solomon grew, he took an interest in theology and the study of life itself, eventually learning to become a priest. He went to Rome itself to learn, although he wasn't well received. As his training there ended, he was requested to serve at <castle> at the behest of <castle owner>.
Job: Court Priest/Scholar
Positive traits: Knowledge of the Orient-Has knowledge that was lost to Europe but known in the Middle East and the Roman Empire. Proper medical tools for one.
Educated-He has knowledge in astronomy, mathematics, philosophy, and history.


I vote that the castle either be in France, Italy, or the Roman Empire (Byzantine). A big stone one surely. What exactly is the year of the game?

Right, going in. Newbie too  :)

Name: Aurin Ravenus
Gender/Sex:Female
Age:33
Bio: Aurin was born to a noble family. Typical. But it was not easy for her in her early years, being constantly bullied by serfs, pages and squires because of her 'different' attitude towards others. She was, as they called it, male in character. Other than engage in activity with others, she preferred to watch and study by her father, who was a stableman taking care of various breeds of horses for the local Earl.

       Her efforts went not without notice, as some of the local guardsmen would report. She was finely skilled in swordplay and a good rider too. The only thing left out was her crude attitude when talked down to, 'an arrogant whelp' they would say. Nonetheless, the Earl was amused by these and contacted her.

Job: Cavalier
Positive traits: Stalwart

Vote: Voting on an English Castle or one of the late Byzantine kingdoms. One fortified with the technology of its time [i.e. portcullis, moat, drawbridge, no guns yet or cannons.]


[Q: Is this RTD realistic, low-fantasy or high-fantasy?]

EDIT: Finished my sheet and removed typos.

You really can both sig it.
But... That would break the laws of sigging! We can't have everyone running around with the same quotes. IT MAKES THEM UNFUNNY FASTER!

Name: Belché Dewberry
Gender/Sex: Male
Age: 45
Bio:
Being half-french never were easy growing up.
Fortunaly he grew up in the castle's kitchen,
eventually replaced the former chef/cook when he kicked the bucket.
He might not be very good at cooking and the Castle's inhabitants may not even like the food,
but at least he's better at his trade than the rest of the rabble outside the castle.
Job: Castle Chef/Cook
Positive traits:
Always prepares food ahead of time.
Lives to work, works to live.
Loyal.
Not picky about any foods or drinks at all.
Dosn't say much, which makes him a good listener.

Name: Frederick of Plebesshire
Gender: Male
Age: 42
Bio: Frederick was born to a simple pair of servants in this very castle. However, his sharp mind, work ethic, and unwillingness to put up with anything less than perfect quickly alienated him from many of his peers.  On the other hand, his superior saw promise in the young lad, and gave him both instruction and responsibilities.  Eventually, he rose up to succeed his predecessor, keeping everything so perfect that the lord's desires are met before he even has them.  He has served loyally through all of his adult life, and considers his reputation at stake every day.  Should anything be less than perfect, it will be fixed, or someone will pay.

Job: Chamberlain/Seneschal (directing servants, supplies, feasts, and other non-military matters; ensuring that the day-to-day life is kept orderly)
Positive Traits: Motivating, Observant, Intelligent


Vote: Definitely something Western-European.  Perhaps in northern Iberia, where we can stave off sieges from the Moors.  Or a traditional English castle, since the culture might be more familiar to us.  Definitely voting for something on the frontier that was made for defense, not noble fancies.

This morning I found myself looking at the numberplates of the cars on my drive in to work and seeing them as tileset characters in ASCII... a silver Renault I was behind had an interesting scene of a Human wrestling a Minotaur near a bin.

Erm, I see nothing about the max players available, but maybe thats just me being the new guy. Is there some sort of hard cap to the number of players in a RTD game?

It depends on how many players the GM thinks he can/wants to handle.

Oh yeah, sorry about the whole max players thing :P. I can accept about 6 players. Also I'm putting up a poll that lets you vote for when the RTD takes place and the amount of fantasy.
