  1. Thanks each of you for expressing your interest! I'm going to wait another day or two, then I'll decide who to write with. Thanks again!
  2. Blurb: No one had seen Aaron Steele in months, not after he moved back to his estate in the Arcane East. He had left his important doings to his advisers, and his riches to the careful hands of his treasurer. Those who had wished to see him were turned away; even his family had not known his exact whereabouts. Master Steele wasn't known to be a secluded personality, which further contributed to the mystery of his disappearance. When he was among the public back in Umbra, people often saw him with a smile on his face, sharing stories about his father, Charles Steele, before his unfortunate passing. Other times a bystander might have seen him greeting a business partner with a handshake and a kiss before discussing the terms of a deal, all in public, social atmospheres. All of the confusion and murmurings of his disappearance were put to a stop, however, when his aides and representatives throughout Genesaris announced to the public that the Steele Estate was in need of a housekeeper, and it's Master insisted that citizens from all walks of life were welcome to apply, and reap the benefits. Now, one such applicant has been accepted, and is now being escorted to Master Aaron Steele's mansion, whose location has never been disclosed. What has Steele been up to all this time, and why has he just now requested an aid? Perhaps these questions may be answered in time. Or perhaps not... OOC: Alright! I'm finally getting round to putting up an interest check. I'm doing something different this time, as I'm looking for someone to write a short 1x1 thread with me to help introduce my new character, Aaron Steele. He is in need of a housekeeper or servant, which is why I'm putting up this thread. Setting: Aaron Steele's estate is located on the outskirts of a small town or village somewhere in the Arcane East. The constantly cloudy and foggy town is infested with savage vampires and other undead, making the location a rather dismal place. The primary setting of this thread will be Steele's mansion, a large home with two floors and an expansive property overtaken by forest and ivy. The forest is a dangerous place to be, so make sure to be swift when approaching the mansion! Content: I expect to be able to post at least once every three days, but I will let you know when I can't meet that requirement. This initial thread will mainly be a conversation-heavy piece, to build character, but I hope to provide a little action and peril near the end, possibly involving some undead baddies! I don't really feel like I'll be delving into anything sexual or romantic in this thread, but light sexual content may come up in future threads if things go well with this one! That's it! I hope you are intrigued. If you have any questions, post here. I didn't do much plotting for this one, so if you'd like to contribute any ideas, I'd be so happy!
  3. Hey fellas. The name's LoganDub, soon to be DubNui, but you all can just call me Dub. I've been a user for quite a while, and have made more than a couple return threads, but I haven't really gotten back into the swing of things since my first couple months back in 2015. I really hope that this time I am here to stay, and I thought I'd introduce myself to anyone who never got to know me before I left! I'm in love with archetypal adventure stories, and my character arcs have generally looked that way, but I want to dive into smaller, more personal tales, where the adventure is a secondary goal, or a side effect of my characters' motivations. I am a big Dungeons & Dragons buff, having played a character in a few campaigns, and I'm currently running one with my buddies. It's great, and has really let me explore my creative side while away from Val. I'm cool with being in charge of multiple characters during a scene, and I'm willing to experiment with being "NPC"-type characters if need be. Starting out, I most likely will NOT be working on character sheets, because I would rather be engaging in roleplay when I have time to write here. If it's important, I'm nineteen, and I'm currently a slave to a grocery chain, so I will most likely be unable to post multiple times a day most days. My hours are unpredictable, but I will try to put in some writing where I can! I can honestly say that Valucre's Discord community has been the single biggest reason for my return, so I must say thank you to everyone there for keeping me engaged! Anyone who would like to discuss any roleplay ideas, feel free to shoot me a message!
  4. I'd like to change my name to DubNui , please!
  5. Looks like my last attempt to respond here didn't get through. I'm sorry guys, but I simply do not have the motivation to continue. Work has been tough, and when I get home to relax, I'm not in the writing mood. I know you all have been looking forward to continuing, but I'm going to have to call it quits for now. I still intend to write around here, but I jumped in at the wrong time.
  6. Britty, my dear! If it weren't for your time away from the site, I don't think I would have had the privilege of befriending you as quickly as I did! I'm really excited to write with you at some point, as soon as I get a little bit of a schedule planned out. So...never. Kidding! I hope to see you around!
  7. I'm sorry guys! I'll be posting soon. I've been pretty busy as of late.
  8. One or two of her special guests were curious as to where the party would start looking. The tiny shrimp girl tapped her index fingers together nervously, putting on a cheery facade to cover her anxiety up. She hadn't actually put any thought into any leads that they could follow. Although Devi couldn't answer their questions, for the most part, she would give them a bit of reassurance. "Well. I'm not actually quite sure where we should start looking. But I do know that a decent bit of adventure is involved. You see this?" Devi asked, gesturing to the steam rising from her bowl, long after the rest of the party's noodles had cooled. "I was able to do this after one of my other friends killed a couple goblins in my presence. Just imagine how much more power I could have if you killed more powerful beasts? "I think we will start by following leads that suggest something dangerous is around the corner, something dangerous that can be slain. I think that the more beasts we extinguish, the easier it will be for me to sense where the source of my power is being held. That is enough of a hook, right?" The goddess giggled nervously, hoping they all would agree. Devi turned to one of those in heavy armor, one that voiced his skepticism of the matter, questioning Devi's very title. "You would not like it if you lost my favor...Jack, was it?" The shrimp girl glared over at him. "I am very much real, and I don't care whether your 'science' challenges that fact. I suggest you treat me like the goddess I am, because it would be easy for me to, er, blow out a candle, if you get what I'm alluding to." She winked at Jack ominously.
  9. Alrighty! I'll get to work on it soon.
  10. If I ever said Shallot, that's definitely a mistake. It's called The Scallop. And I know the links are a little messy. I'll fix everything up in the morning!
  11. Whoops! I forgot about posting a turn order. So! Guys! After I post again, we will be adhering to a posting order, which will be as follows. I will be first. @NuclearCommando will be second. @notmuch_23 will be third. Then @ODSTDRAGON. Then @Wavum. Then @Metty. Metty has told me her character will hop in after a couple rounds. So, Metty, jump in at any time, but after your first post, you'll be after Wavum!
  12. The lowly monk was kind enough to carry Devi back to The Shallot, which was fortunate, as the little goddess was not stupid enough to let strangers carry her around without engaging in a bit of conversation. A few of the interested individuals had patiently waited as Devi continued to advertise her quest, while others left, assuring her that they would arrive at her restaurant by dinner time. So, as evening arrived, Devi and a few of those interested followed her and the monk back to the little boat near Hodra's bay. Any questions her new helpers had, she ignored, answering any bit of dialogue with "I will explain my plight when we arrive at The Shallot, after you all have taken a seat, and each of you have a bowl of delicious food in front of you." Devi was the god of abundance, after all, and she would not leave her guests wanting for comfort. The party arrived at the little boat. A sign was posted out front that read "CLOSED FOR ADVENTURING PURPOSES." As all of them entered the shop, there were no other guests. The smell of seafood and noodles filled the air, a few cooks in the back working away, preparing a meal for the party. The gentle swaying of the restaurant boat could be felt inside as well, which could be disorienting at first, but after a few minutes, the feeling would subside. Devi turned around in her bowl to the monk. "Put me down, please. And you may have a meal as well, sweetie, for bringing me back here," the shrimp-girl beamed. "Now! Everyone sit down, and have a meal on me!" The cooks arrived with steaming bowls of noodles, decorated with all kinds of seafood. Platters of sushi were brought next, and then the chefs bowed and left the restaurant. Now, the only ones in the establishment were the adventurers, and Devi herself. The goddess looked over her group of adventurers. Some were quite outlandish, with technology she didn't recognize as being from this world. There were also two pairs of individuals who seemed to know each other. Good, she thought. Group cohesion would hopefully not be a problem. "Eat and make yourself comfortable, my friends," the shrimp piped up, her tiny voice requiring some degree of silence to detect. "I will share with you my story, and why I implore you help me. "I was once a very powerful god of this world. I was able to bestow riches and food to anyone I saw fit too, and that power gave me great influence over the world of mortals. Adventurers like you from all parts would seek me, hoping I would grant them a wish of sorts. Wars were waged over the gifts I bestowed. I was great. "Recently, though, one of my rivals became jealous, and told me if I didn't give him what he wanted - a child - he would seal me away to the mortal realm. And that he did. Our battle was spectacular. I had the upper hand, but he was sneaky. He defeated me. So enraged was he that he chose that, instead of forcing me to do his whims, he stole my power and banished me here. "Look at me!" Devi exclaimed, twirling in her bowl, frustrated, before finally splashing back into the broth, defeated. "I can't travel the world on my own. If I could, I would, and I would look for a way to reverse this myself. But I can't. So I beg all of you. Will you help me?"
  13. No prob, @Metty! Looks like I'm next then!
  14. At the end of the starter, she has just invited you to come back to The Shallot , a restaurant she calls home. You all are on your way there.
  15. Alright, fellas! I've finally posted the starter for my RP in Hodra! You can find it here! This is where we can discuss how we would like to proceed. At the start of the thread, Devi, the shrimp goddess, has managed to capture the interest of the five of you, and she is now inviting you all back to The Shallot to discuss terms over a meal. This first thread is mainly going to be all about character interaction. No fighting yet! Unless it's between players whose characters get a little angrier than they should be ;) EDIT: The posting order is as follows. I will be first. @NuclearCommando will be second. @notmuch_23 will be third. Then @ODSTDRAGON. Then @Wavum. Then @Metty.
