Keep on the Shadowfell Request
That's a tough one, honestly.

I tend to want to let players play the character they want, as I would expect players to be less likely to engage if they don't enjoy the character.

This character troubles me in part because it's a child, but also because it seems very wrapped up in itself. It has a self-contained backstory, the character is a "lone-wolf" and "stubborn," which doesn't imply a very good teammate, and the other characters are written in as subordinate and beholden to her, whether the players want to be in that position or not.

I happen to know that you have had a number of opportunities to play this character, so me not allowing it doesn't entirely prevent you from using the character. That diminishes the obligation I feel to allow you to utilize it.

I would be open to you using the character if, as I had been thinking, the game opens during a time when the original keep still stood and on the night of the events that led to it being considered haunted and cursed. The players would create partial characters for one or two scenes in which those events occur and those characters would die at the end of those scenes. Then we'd pick up the adventure in the "present" and the players would play characters unrelated to the original ones who could find hints of the existence of those people and their actions and demise in the keep.

You could play this character as the one during the tragedy at the keep and then make a new character different from and not related to this character.

As for when we would start, that depends on interest. It would probably not be for a few weeks.

I do not know about Eberron backgrounds. May I use Scale of War backgrounds instead? Here is my character sheet. Maybe you should set up a game and put up an ad?

No, you may not use Scales of War backgrounds, but if there's a particular mundane language you want your character to speak, or a particular skill you want as a class skill or need a +2 bonus to, we can do that.

I usually ask that my players stick to the standard array (16, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10) for character creation. Otherwise it seems fine. A warrior fits in well, since the Last War, which lasted almost 1000 years, only just ended. I'm a bit surprised you made him an orphan, though.

I would prefer not to create a game until I have definite interest, as I believe every game I create goes on my record here. I don't want to post a game that might not go anywhere. I have several of those already.

Do you know of anyone else interested in this? Three players is my preferred minimum.

I have stated a willingness to run, but I would like to know there's an interest base before I create a game.

I might be interested in running this, but I'd want to use 5e. Any interest in that? I've actually looked at using the Fallcrest/Nentir Vale setting as a sandboxish 5e campaign, so you might say I'm already working on it.
