A while ago (i think a year and some change) I put out a census asking for unique player character races, which I then used to create a big collection of different races people had created. I like to think it was a huge success with tonnes of you guys sending in your unique character races for others to see and use, and I hope that the page was consulted often, leading to more folks using similar races, and creating a sense of community. Anyway, now we're back, and we're putting in new work! This time, however, I'm aiming to lead everybody towards more roleplay opportunities, for reasons I've made known more than once before. So, what's the plan? I think that we can probably make merchants, shops, and craftsmen more functional on Valucre. Currently, there's not really much incentive to seek out a shopkeeper, or a blacksmith or anything like that because you can always just write out one yourself to suit your needs. I think the reason for this isn't based on unwillingness, but rather a lack of availability; it can be tricky to find these merchant PCs and NPCs. By putting this out, I aim to keep a list of every named merchant, tradesperson or anything in between. If they offer a unique or useful service, they can end up on the list for other folks to peruse and use at their leisure. This use can be active, as in they go looking for you and write out an exchange, or passive, where you can simply leave a general idea of how they might deal with customers. So, if you're reading this, you might already have a character that offers a service that doesn't get used. This interest check is for you! Write in some information regarding your character. If I get enough of them, I'll go ahead and compile them all into a single thread, where everyone can see your character, and seek them out for a service if they require. Board Leaders, Regents, or other makers: if you have NPC's, shops, and other characters in your boards, cities and kingdoms, this goes for you too! Drop whatever information you need to below in order to better advertise them. The information I need in order to best catalogue your characters should be as follows. Try to follow it as closely as possible, or with whatever relevant information you have available. Edit: Hey, if you feel like chatting about this, proposing your own ideas, asking questions, or anything that isn't a specific addition to the index, put it here! (Click the Link)
Kill me if you can! For those of you who aren't aware, the Nehalen provinces have been historically ruled by someone called the PRIME. You can assume that to mean something like King, President, Prime Minister, etc. However, the current plans for Renovatio, without spoiling anything, will be removing that title/ position from future existence. In her absence, Aleksei has given me free range to do a lot of stuff in Nehalen. Of those permissions, fucking around with the remaining PRIMES is one of them (with the exception of Oo'Xora since that's player controlled obviously. So, what to do, what to do has been my question. I've debated just using Lilith to kill them, but then I was like nah she has enough infamy. Adding anymore is like trying to put more hot chocolate in a cup already full with hot chocolate. Just kinda spills out. Then I was like, how about I give it to the Cult as a whole? But eh it's kind of the same situation. Instead, what I'm going to do is roleplay the PRIMES of La Guardia and Avylon. Both PRIMES are will be currently meeting in a negotiation structure that sits on a piece of land that borders both provinces. Here's the Map of Renovatio if you're interested in better placing my words. The goal of this thread is for both characters to die... BUT I'm not gonna make it easy for you. Where would the fun in that be? I'm not gonna mess with any of the dice and stuff for this, it's just gonna be GM'd with the ultimate ending being predetermined as both PRIMES being dead. That's where you guys come in. I need a small group of people with the goal to kill the PRIMES. For whatever reason. Maybe you're an assassin for hire, maybe you just want to kill them, maybe your character is rebelling against their rule, whatever you'd like. It can even be that the Cult or w.e. bad organization hired the assassin character. This is a chance for your character to get a +100 in the infamy department. Not everyday you get to kill a big-wig head of a Province character. Disclaimer - I won't accept any godmodding in this. All characters will get injured, increasingly so as the story progresses. If you want to walk in super edgelord and kill everyone in the building cause you're dope af, swipe left. Go to my other threads LOL they all open
and then the world shook (for it cannot fathom the unknown)— Hello everyone! Vielle here. ? I'm looking for some writing buddies to go have a bit of an adventure of sorts, to ease my way back into the writing rhythm. Seeing as my own lore and locations haven't been properly canonized yet, I'd like to go out and play in other people's sandboxes while I sort my own stuff out. ? So: a "casual" adventure exploring the wildlands of Taen it is! Taken from the Taen Quests and Opportunities index: I'm thinking post-apocalyptic, isolated, mind-wrenching, Death Stranding/HP Lovecraft/Portal themes as we venture out from the safety of civilization and into the unknown reaches of Taen's mountains. With the worldrift portal a yawning nebulous hole in the sky, we might even encounter some strange things from other realms, other worlds—and who knows? If we can make it back home with our minds still our own, then we'd have quite the story to tell. ? tl;dr: I'm looking for 1-2 writing partners who can post at least once every two days! Preferably people I haven't written with yet before, so I can make new friends with y'all I haven't met yet. ❤️ Also, I don't mind if we all post with the brevity rules—it is even encouraged! Keeps the story moving and no one gets bored, and I'd also very much like to shape this story alongside you guys. ? Will probably start this one up by this weekend or sooner. Just let me know below or in a PM if you're interested! Have a nice day, you! ❤️
I have a character whose a professor of adventure-ology and adventure-nomics I’m looking for characters at the novice level of adventuring who want to learn how to dungeoneer and make a practical living off the adventure. Naturally they won’t learn everything, it’s just the 101 class after all. Gotta get the basics somewhere right? This would be starting in May and should be for “freshman” characters (in terms of applicable skills, not necessarily age) Anyone interested? IC Characters Donovan Leo Yineffe
something heinous a w a k e n s. . . Hello everyone, Vielle here (representing @Wade too!) ❤️ Anyone up for a little D&D-style dungeon delving? As stated before, I’ve made quests for Vanora and wanted to try my hand at GM-ing some of them. After bouncing ideas back and forth with Wade, I figured this particular quest would be the one to start things out, and so here’s a quest to be co-GMed by myself and Wade ? I won’t lie—I’ve been greatly inspired by @OBELUS's CYOA-esque thread and its story mechanics, and also by @Jotnotes’ fabulous dungeon-threads, and so will be borrowing some elements from them as well as from the love of my gaming life Dungeons & Dragons in order to create this system of play-writing. The premise: A collapse in the streets of Vanora reveal a hidden underwater grotto with an extensive cave network. City officials are willing to pay for the exploration of the caves after an initial search of the shallow areas has recovered some long lost treasure from the era of the Queendom. The party’s objective is to explore the grotto and bring back whatever treasures and information they can find. But of course, nothing valuable is so easily given, and something is stirring in that musty darkness. . . The rules are simple: Speed is da wae. Brevity rules ftw! I don’t mind if people take some time to post, but I’d definitely appreciate a little more speed for this one ? Two days before skipping is in play here, unless circumstances prevent posting, in which case let us know in the OOC thread! Be curious. This is most definitely an exploration-focused adventure quest (with a dash of combat on the side). We won’t be giving up clues all willy-nilly, and so proactive interaction with each other and the environment is key to success. Who knows what mysteries and shiny things you’ll find? ? Roll to determine success. When it comes to traps, perception checks, and certain event triggers/prompts, we’ll be asking for dice rolls to determine what happens to your characters. Fate is unpredictably fun that way ? One last thing: This quest is part one of the A Darkness Beneath narrative questline, and so the events of this thread will be the foundation for the upcoming quests and plotlines that will spawn from its completion. You can choose to stick around for whatever comes next, or go on to continue your tales elsewhere: whichever floats your boat! ? Optimally, we’re looking for 2-4 writers to join us! The IC and OOC thread will be up by Wednesday next week, after which recruitment will be closed. If anyone is interested, please let us know here or in a PM! ❤️ . . . in the darkened world b e l o w.
