  1. While one would hardly call it the talk of the town, a particular subject of conversation has come up with increasing frequency among the people of Casper, especially among those that pass by the Lightning Rail on their way to and from work. Namely, that of the weirdo who often hangs around outside the station, telling portents of imminent doom and despair. Perhaps not such an unusual sight these days, but uh, he's a bit more specific than most. He speaks, with difficulty, of an Enrele hivemind - Aleth - and its growing power; its grip upon the city of Dougton. He shows what he claims is the pulped, decaying remains of one such parasite, as long as the human spine. He pleads with the people that largely ignore him, saying that Aleth's power is growing, and he needs allies with which to fight it. Most just wonder if it may be that rumoured murderer that Dougton are after. Without fast travel between the two cities these days, it's hard to say; the exact description is distorted. The man disappears after a while, perhaps evading local law enforcement, but he returns the next day, speaking ill omen once again, even as he looks increasingly tired and worn for wear. It would seem he has planted himself at the Lightning Rail, hoping that someone, from however far afield, may listen to him...! Will you? So this here is a formal interest check and/or planning thread for a potential assault on the Enrele Hivemind, Aleth. Argi's experiences in the matter, which he would relay to anyone willing to ask, can be found here: For those unfamiliar, Aleth is the largest of the Enrele hiveminds; in-universe, last year, it was estimated to have compromised 2.5 million people, and was likeliest to grow so vast as to have such latent psychic will that it could compete with a genius loci. That is scheduled to happen this year, and there's only so many months left. So, might be worth nipping in the bud, even if the means to do so are about as subtle as a sack of hammers. As this is being arranged informally, unless someone with a big backer steps in, the chief reward here would be much less tangible than existential. It's do or die. So... any takers?
  2. Original interest check Mechanics 1) Health Points (HP) When a character suffers physical damage, their HP is lowered. At tip top condition, they are able to perform 3 actions in a turn. As they get injured, their movements slow and they get less and less actions. Your number of actions for the turn is based on your HP at the start of your turn. You don't immediately gain an extra action after healing, only on the next turn. Every character starts with 5 HP. 2) Sanity Sanity affects your character's state of mind. The less sane you are, the more likely you are to miss or damage yourself, or even attack your team mates. I leave it to each of you as to what low sanity means for your character. Sanity rolls are applied per action, so if you use your first action to increase your sanity, you can use the improved sanity for the next action. Characters who participated in the first arc starts from sanity of 4 due to mental exhaustion from the previous failure and prolonged stay in Yh'mi. Fresh characters start with sanity of 5. 3) Skills Unlike the previous round, your character has a set of skills that they draw from, which differs from character to character. Each character will choose a set of skills from the skills list below. This will form the list of actions that your character gets to choose from every turn. Everyone will get 3 normal skills. On top of that, characters from the first thread will get 3 special skills, and new characters only get 2 special skill. The extra 1 special skill represents the characters gaining experience from the last battle and being able to form a better strategy for this fight. Movement does not require an action, but the distance you can move per turn should make narrative sense. Choose the actions that fit your character's fighting style the most! Support characters (heal, buff etc) could be as useful as offensive characters. Normal skills (choose 3 for your character) - Has no usage limit. Can be stacked in that turn (e.g. attack 3 times). You can delay 1 action over to the next turn (e.g. if you have 3 actions, you can delay 1 action so you have 4 the next turn). Special skills (existing characters choose 3, new characters choose 2) - Each one of these actions can only be used 3 times throughout this whole Furthest Point Part 2 arc. These actions are still affected by sanity, but if they miss or backfire, then they are not considered to be used. Use them wisely! Q: Can I choose an action not on the list when building my character's skills? A: Yes, but run your idea by me for approval please! Q: Can I change my skills halfway through the thread? A: I have no plans to allow for that right now, but if we find any of the skills problematic later on, I may allow a change. Put your characters here!: IC thread:
  3. Mae Govanen Friends, Strangers, and Fellow Fortune Seekers, If you happen to be receiving this message you have happened across my Emergency beacon spell. I must be brief but I am Captain Richter Konig of the Justicar. In a recent battle we fought against a Nest of Sky Pirates left my Vessel severely damaged and unable to to make harbor for formal repairs. We are currently Grounded and in needs of supplies to perform emergency repairs. The Goddess has blessed us that most of our engineering team made it out alive. But most of our Personal flyers were destroyed save a handful. We have located a forest and cavern that should provide us the necessary raw materials to salvage my vessel. But alas my former command crew is all missing in action and I need to leave my Ground crew and Marines to keep the Auxiliary teams secure while we secure the resources. I need the aid of a few brave souls to assist me in acquiring these materials. If we all happen to make it out of here alive. I could use capable hands on my Ship. Goddess watch over you. (Themes: Action/Survival/Adventure)
  4. 'Class A: At the eye of the storm that tears across the land lies a floating citadel.' It was early in the morning when researchers at the Department for Meteorology, Ignatz University, had requested to speak with the Regent. It was midday when they were cleared to speak with her. There they told her of a storm system that had, as according to their instruments and verified by their counterparts in Hell's Gate, formed over the former Wastelands. A very large storm system - a hurricane, really - and headed in their direction, with only days before it might cross the mountains, and bring its wind and rain to the valley in which the city sits. Only days to prepare the people for what was coming. One researcher at the back fidgeted. After repeated instances of doubt, she dared to raise her voice. But she was drowned out by arguments by and with city officials as to the best course of action to take in light of such an imminent catastrophe. So, she has spent her afternoon and evening going about the city. To inns and taverns, the train station and the first temple - anywhere and everywhere where travellers, adventurers, or anyone otherwise familiar with the perils of the wild, might be found on such short notice. Asking them whether they wished to be paid well for a quick job. To those that said yes, she directed them to meet her, just before the stroke of midnight, at the University. So that she might grant them access to the Department's airship, with which they might gather 'direct readings' of the event. So that they can determine whether or not her superiors were in correct in dismissing the storm's avoidance of the Plateau of Zühl over the course of the day as simply a natural arc, or if there is perhaps another factor in play... Spoilers: There is. Hoping to put together a party with 2-3 other people (though could always stretch) for what shall hopefully be a 45+ post adventure featuring a flying fortress of doom, cultists awaiting the return of their dark lord, simultaneous revenge plots spanning decades and centuries, a whole bunch of lore references, and more than a few cool set pieces along the way. Boss fight(s) highly probable.
  5. Interest check for a little run-and-gun adventure in Silver Harbor, thread to start in a few days to maybe a week. Background: The sleepy little harbor has been a major dock for smugglers for years, at the town's detriment. Avarice Lynch has recently arrived in town, and is marshaling allies to seize the biggest smuggling ship of the lot: the Iron Queen, when it comes to offload its cargo. To that end, he's recruiting outside help from Silver Harbor and beyond. Looking for: Adventurous action fun. The thread will start with some planning with Avarice and the volunteers, followed by a giant run-and-gun as the Queen comes into port. Any and all are welcome, there will be plenty of chaos (and hidden objectives) to go around. Combat: I like to run a narrative combat, rather than anything crunch-heavy. So really, you're pretty free to do as you like and show off some cool stuff as you like, in keeping with the Rule of Cool. If you'd like to face down a major NPC or something suitably dangerous, I am all about that business, so shoot me a PM beforehand and I'll set you up with some gnarly smuggling sorts. Some minor dice rolls may be in order to determine degree of success/embarrassment. Hit me up with any questions, and start the countdown to the demise of the Iron Queen! @Saerwen Talmiel @Dizzy00
  6. Notice from the Carmine Empire: An unidentified being has been flying across Genesaris, violently massacring town after town. The subject has been described as a very large man in a red suit, in what appears to be a bobsled pulled by what appear to be abnormally large deer. His methods of flight are unknown. His methods of killing vary from witness to witness, though all reports have one thing in common; He always seems to say the same cryptic phrase before he begins: "You have been very naughty." All attempts made by the Imperial Guard to capture or kill this monster have failed. Therefore, we send an open invitation to any who will listen. Calling all mercenaries, adventurers, monster hunters, and anyone that can adequately wield a weapon. The Carmine Empire requests your help in putting an end to this monsters murderous rampage. Any who accept, will be greatly rewarded upon the job's completion. To any who may perish while on this hunt, your reward will be sent to your family. We thank you in advance for your cooperation. Okay so real talk, Santa is evil, and brutally killing anyone he doesn't deem as 'Nice'. Which is everyone. Is anyone -truly- nice? All the time? This will be a raid boss fight taking place in the city of Umbra, in which there are several enemy phases to get through before we take on the final boss, Santa himself. As for what they are... Hollow will be keeping that a secret until it is time to fight them. Upon finishing the event, all who enter will receive rewards from Santa, as well as the Carmine Empire. If you are unconscious when the fight finishes, you will receive less rewards from Santa, but the Carmine reward will be unaffected. There will not be a combat dice system for this event, it will be pure storytelling. However, know that like Santa, Hollow will be both participating, and watching. No god dodging, no unavoidable attacks, and no staying conscious after taking hits that would have you out cold. That being said, dice rolls will be used to dictate a few things. Secret things. Worry not, Hollow is not biased. My character will be having just as hard a time as you, and he will not receive more or better rewards. If your character is knocked out, they are out for the rest of the event unless someone revives them. The amount of people required for this event is flexible, but the absolute max is 9. You may only have one character involved at a time. If you wish an organization be involved, you must pick one representative. Hollow wishes for this to be canonized as well. Please mind the character requirement for canonization. Character sheets for those participating will be an immense help in speeding things along. Current roster of murder victims brave individuals to undertake this task: 1- HollowCipher: Dan Palmer 2- Thotification: Maiden Ravenbush 3- Mr. Optional: Caelus. With Robot Eagle 4- Lawman: Alice Schrodinger 5- Hurttoto: One of Their Newest Characters
  7. Have I got the roleplay for you! So, as an over-arching plot, I've had these body snatching aliens cooking in Terrenus for a while. I'm happy to go into the details of what they've gotten up to in the last few years, and how much of a threat a recent symposium has classified them as, but that's peripheral to what's going on here And what's going on here is that they're branching out. I'm too busy to individually follow these things through but that's the whole point of collaboration right?! It doesn't have to be just me!? So there's two things: 1. Grow an already established presence in Norkotia. This is a slow burn. The thread that comes out of this should be another step, another brick, and not a sudden eruption of ALIENS. Since snatched citizens are already seeded its about establishing and growing a political presence. You can think of this as playing a character with a dark secret, as opposed to a scifi alien plot. This shouldn't be a solo thread although only one of the players needs to be a snatched citizen 2. Establish a presence in another location - specifically Veluriyam empire (wherever their seat is which I believe is Taen), Hyperion, or Predator's Keep. This should be as close to a citizen or vassal or lord as the structure allows; we want to belong to their charter or institution whatever the case may be. There's oodles more locations to pick from but those are the three I want to focus on now. This can be a solo thread (such as the one I did for Norkotia) or a collective effort. Anyone interested? Note for emphasis - I won't be able to join personally but will organize and guide efforts
  8. hello fellow roleplayers, its your favorite rambler who likes to bother people, me. Anyways, I am on the third chapter of one of my biggest rps ever. Its about the war happening in the floating islands due to the princess of the land, Rin. At first she wanted to bring peace back but now she's changed and became evil. What I'm rambling about, is as I decided to focus on the third island, since Athentha and Lyonesse gets tons of exposure. Talia, has its own sets of problems. A dying cult resurfacing. Its princesses caught up in this mess. So for this chapter, I brought in a knight who fought against the mirror and barely escaped. She seeks out Ra, a demoness from Lyonesse, to help her learn more of the secrets of this organization. Lore, though very disorganized, I was wondering if one or two people can help me out by playing a character or two to help destroy any hope of these two finding a light to crush the Black Heart Mirror Organization. So, I need someone to play Nebula's old captain of the Plutonium knights, that has become committed to the cult, and wants to spread more mirror pieces. And another character to play someone from Ra's past to persuade her to the side of the black heart mirror. Sorry if my words are muddled, I am terrible at explaining things. Can ask questions here. All lore, and things Athentha located in the signature and the link posted above. also, here's the girst two chapters to get caught up on if needed. ❤️
  9. Hello ? I have a lot to do with Nymeria of Genesaris’ Ariatic Ocean and I was wondering if anyone was interested in any type of interaction with the Ocean Empire? In regards to Terrenus, I was hoping to establish a consulate, be it with myself or @Malintzin Doesnt have to be something drastic but it can be! Maritime endeavors or land based endeavors. I myself am not picky. I should note that there is a consulate in Port Kyros, if anyone in the west of Genesaris wishes to reach out. But all are welcome to approach this little interest check. Questions regarding the consulate can go here or in my inbox! Any ideas? Hopes? Concerns?
  10. So I admit I've gone a little bored in my summer vacation and those fewer people who I've RPed with have lives of their own and they one of them is in school and the other busy with life, just to name a few. Then again I do have a life of my own, just it ain't as busy as theirs. Because I want more of my 2 year found passion to last till life would get serious with me, I thought I'd make a post and attract some attention to those who are interested and free to RP. I also have an RP going on which is "Legacy of Requiem: The New Leaguers" but because of someone who has some life stuff going on, it's put on hold sadly... But before all that, here are some Genres or Settings I mostly like RPing in. Do bare in mind these are not a most, they are not set in stone, sure I'd like for some to be kept but everything can come to an agreement in the end, because I'm a pretty open person. Fantasy: This can fall into many categories but let's put a few examples out there. First one I think of is the Superhero Setting, for example characters like: Captain America, Black Panther, Deadpool, Wolverine, Superman and many more, there is probably also heroes in the Anime Genre, like Goku and so on but they don't need ot be that, the main premise I'm trying to point out is what I like to call these types of characters "super-powered individuals." But I understand not so many are interested in that so there is another type of category, I like to call that Lord of the Rings one because of the following things such as: Fantasy Land, it can be from floating islands to big Avatar Type trees to Elfs or dark Elfs to Wraiths to Dragons and heck even Aliens not there is also the Angels and Demons which I don't know if they fit in this one as well as the Supernatural one but I might as well mention them, these are some ideas, bare in mind. Sci-Fi: This also falls into three categories, let's start with this one. The Billionaire IronMan/Black Panther category, what I mean by that is one who has an incredible amount of wealth which also happened to be a genius or have a genius around him, enabling him the possibility of an advanced cybernetic you name it suit but he doesn't have to be a Billionaire, he can be a normal guy who stumbled upon a wealthy wise old man, the possibilities are endless. The second one is the Star Wars Setting, which I mean by, either lightsabers to laser guns to flying giant behemoth spaceships to superluminal space travel and so on. I once had an idea of a guy who had an armored suit with a lightsaber on him, since we do RP we don't have to follow the laws of realism after all it's just a RP ? And the last but not least the Mecha Genre, now I know this fits in more into Mecha but you always see Sci-Fi next to it so might as well blend them together for the sake of simplicity. This can be taken to Gundams, which are basically Robots piloted by one pilot to Jaegers from Pacific Rim who are piloted by two pilots to living robots aka the Transformers! Romance: It could be anything in these type of setting. I do like romance if done right and I don't have a problem if it is a part of the RP for example or not, it's just to be out there, it's not a must. This could go to the type of cliche I call "Romeo and Juliet" which falls into the never meant to be category, because I'm different, I'm weird and you are so perfect and vice versa. Or the cliche "Meant to be" like oh yeah, I'm a good looking guy, you a good looking gal, we meet at a coffee shop, we connect eyes and there happily ever after and so on, there are many ideas you can go about it. Thriller/Drama: What I mean by this is to give tension, suspension and deliver. And to also make it seem that maybe the protagonist might not always win and that not necessarily means if today was a good day tomorrow would be the same, hence the drama. You can go endlessly with the possibilities. Supernatural: From Magic Users like, John Constantine, Doctor Strange and Doctor Fate to Angels being on Earth for one reason or the other, being at war with Demons and fighting ever since a millennia, that type of thing to the setting of a Ghost Rider which I do love. I once had a character called Dante O'Brian who instead of having a Demon as his Ghost Rider it was an Angel of Justice, called Kafziel and he had to struggle to accept love again with this Female Lycan called Amber...yeah it's a love story who is still going on to this day with many plots and impactful moments, alright back to the point. All of that to the point of a edgy anti-hero, which we all know to be Spawn or a type Spawn character, to some Lycan/Werewolfe/Vampire and so on. Fun Fact, I watched two dark Animes, the first one was Devil's Line and I loved it. Then I watched Tokyo Ghoul all four seasons and I loved it! So take that information as you will. But basically if you don't know, Devil's Line is about Vampires and Tokyo Ghoul about Ghouls who have kagunes that are weapons formed from their bodies, if you want more information go on google. No again do bare in mind this is not a must or set in stone, sure I'd like to keep some of these premises in my book when I do RP but I'm an open person and when I like a suggestion I'll surely use it and extend it furthermore. And it sure would be nice if some of you would want to RP with me, that number can go to 1-1 to 3-4 to 7-8 players and so on, hey might as well make a big RP that will shake whole Valucre to its core! ? I'm also a writer since Sep. 9th of 2018, my first ever story was a FanFiction about Transformers called the TFCU (Transformers Cinematic Universe) which had marvel elements to it, aka the Infinity Stones. Yeah I went about the 13th Chapter and stopped...it's a writers beginning type thing so it may not be the next stephen king novel that's for sure. Maybe one day I should go to it and edit it...eh we'll see. Then I started to write a original story called "Infinity Requiem" yeah I'm at Chapter 3 currently writing it so I hope that will be well received but to the RP side of things, we have 2019 so I've RPed since 2017, yeah I know not a lot of years but I'm that type of person who learns really quickly if I put my mind on it...or at least if I do enjoy it, so over these past 2 years I've accumulated a lot of knowledge and yet I still learn more and more as day goes by! Well if you are interested please let me know and if you want to talk about it, I'd be more than happy to do so. I'm a friendly, nice guy, so don't be scared...I don't bite...usually...I'm kidding, anyway, I thank you sincerely if you read this whole page and I wish you a great day, peace! ?
  11. You've heard the gossipy tidbits spread wide to cities and countries across of a Blind Swordslayer educating in Swordsmanship and Martial Arts to even the physical impaired. Rumor has it that the Hinode no Gakko Dojo, School of the Rising Sun finally opened for public under instructions of Daiookami, Kenshinobu Momoku, General of the Imperial Army. The land's greatest Bladeslayers and their secret arts available in search of adequate applicants not only subjected to, but all throughout and beyond the Jigoku Nation of Genesaris. Now, you may make a visit to witness the supernatural firsthand in hopes of becoming a dedicated Pupil. Perhaps, you are talented in Combat Arts you came to test such acclaimed theories against an elite Full Moon student or the Head Instructor Shihan, Lord Shiroyasha instead? Or none of the above. You’re a champion fighter and wish to challenge the Legendary Okami no Senjo, to be honest? “We are a community of growing Bladeslayers and warriors from many different aspects of life, not only backgrounds, but social caste yet within the walls of Hinode no Gakko and in the Imperial Nation - - we are Wolves of Jigoku.”

Mercenaries, soldiers, warriors, whatever you may be before, you now have a choice. Ignore this message and move on as if you've never read this, or help us save countless lives. You shall be rewarded handsomely of course for your troubles, that is if you survive. Today, Terrenus calls on you. Will you answer?" -Excerpt of OS-5's message Site-27 is a heavy containment unit built for the containment of troublesome CS's (Containment Subjects). 3 days ago, the Site has stopped transmitting it's daily reports to Facility-01. 2 days ago, the Foundation Security Task Force Gamma-12 (FSTF Gamma-12) was deployed to investigate Site-27. 1 day ago, all members stopped transmitting reports. 7 hours ago, OS-5 [Sentinel] has established a perimeter of 25 Km around Site-27, bringing whatever reserves the Foundation could deploy in Terrenus to prevent a sector-level annihilation event. 5 hours ago, all CS's were found to return to the breached site. OS-5 sent out calls of help to warriors, soldiers, mercenaries, guns for hire, leaders, anyone who was willing to heed the call to fight on behalf of the foundation. The full message can be read below. This is a heavily inspired Containment Breach RP, as to how the organization of SCP inspired the VCF. There are three CS's that need to be contained, each more difficult than the last. Anyone who's character is within Terrenus in more than welcome to help in their own odd way! Whether it is through their brute force, their durability, their strategical mind or their courage to take risks! Any and all are welcome for this relatively casual RP. Details of the CS's will be discussed within the main IC ? Of course, I'll play as OS-5 and the three CS's themselves. Each of you who are interested in joining will be accountable for the lives of each man, who have families, friends, loved ones and the sort. Be sure to protect them! Who's up for some containment breach? ? V.C.F (Valucrean Containment Foundation)
  13. Necessity and a healthy dose of ambition are driving Akako, the current Regent of Port Caelum, to expand her territory. With the immediate threat that the Datsuzoku Empire presents, Akako is amassing power and allies to take down the potential threat. Beyond that, she seeks to spread her influence far beyond the Port City she currently governs. Since arriving in Valucre, the daiyokai had been satisfied to take a supporting role; however, everything has changed with long-standing allies failing her by either neglecting their duties to lead appropriately or by betraying her trust on a more personal level. It is finally time for the rumored Yokai Queen to solidify her status and rise to power befitting someone of her station. Upon joining Akako’s ranks, you will be exposed to a roleplay experience that is unlike any other offered in Valucre. What we offer is a unique prestige rank and influence tier system that will reflect upon in-character accomplishments, which will allow you to earn character and player privileges respectively. I am currently looking for a group of dedicated long-term players that are ready and eager to be involved in both PVP and PVE conflicts in the forms of espionage, diplomacy, war, and much more. Q&A Section: 1. What do you mean be "earn character and player privileges?" There are roles that I have already set, however, they are NPCs which can be controlled by people within the organization depending on what influential tier and prestige ranking you've acquired. Basically, it isn't the position that is of interest to you or any other RPer, but the authority to use a certain level of power within the empire as it expands. For instance, say a higher ranked RPer was writing with a lower ranked RPer, the higher ranked RPer would be able to exercise the most influence over the NPC's regardless of who owns the thread. So, when you first start you would be tier 0, so you have no control over any of the NPC's, but as you rise in ranks you basically have access to more. That being said, there is a cap on how many "cooks" there will be in the kitchen. And to get to the highest tier, there needs to be a substantial amount of work put in.The reason for that is the influence tier system is basically a symbol of trust in you (or another player). Basically, if I am going to let you drive my car, I need to trust that you're dedicated to my cause. 2. Can you explain a little more about the influential tier, and prestige ranking? Like how do you earn them, which one does what, and what exactly I would need to do to increase either? The influential tiers are the overall control you will have in a setting over NPC's, so this is for the player. The prestige ranking basically is how much sway you will have with Akako ICly with your OC. An OC with higher prestige will have an easier time asking her for something or making suggestions than someone that doesn't have that prestige. Prestige rankings can pretty much give an OC minor celebrity status which can be used in other ways aside from how they interact with Akako. So, someone with a high enough prestige ranking could theoretically get a guard to overlook them committing a minor crime or they might be able to eat at places for free. I know a lot of tabletop games and even video games include a Charisma stat. I would think of prestige as something akin to that. So influence tiers are for the player, while each OC has its own prestige rank. (Ex. A tier 5 player may have one OC with 30 prestige points and another OC with only 10.) So here is how the Tier system looks and the requirements per tier. Influential Tiers: Tier 0 - No special privileges Requirement: N/A Tier 1 - Minor control over basic NPCs and some guards. (Ex. If you're following Hanami, I am doing just that when we see some of those staffed by Akako coming and going from the estate and when they watch the interaction between Koji and Akako. You will notice that they do not directly interact with anyone at this point.) Requirement: 350 points, 10 prestige points Tier 2 - Control over basic NPCs and some guards. At this point, you can control them to interact with others aside from your character. That means, you can have them interact with other OC's at this point. Requirement: 700 points, 15 prestige points Tier 3 - Can control mid-level diplomats. Requirement: 1050 points, 30 prestige points Tier 4 - Basically control anyone within the town/city that is under Akako's influence. Requirement: 1400 points, 50 prestige points Tier 5 - Able to declare war and broker peace treaties. Requirement: 1750 points, 100 prestige points The point system comes in two parts, points earned by completing quests and earning “extra credit based on the amount of work and thought put into the quest. The second part is prestige points awarded by the class of quests completed. Obviously, the harder the quest, the more prestige points you can earn. Again, the point requirement to move up in tier includes the prestige points earned. (ex. 345 accumulated quest completion points + 15 prestige points = 360 points)
  14. The Dogs of War are about to mobilize into a mighty mission to make Terrenus a safer place. They intend on venturing out into Terrenus in the hopes of locating cursed objects so they can retrieve, bring them back to Illyana Uldwar who will in turn attempt to either purify the artifact or destroy it if purification is not possible. What artifacts are they going after?: The Dogs of War will be going after several artifacts, splitting themselves into three teams so they can cover more ground and obtain multiple cursed artifacts. These teams go as such. 1. Team Longsword: Rumors are flying that the vigilante group known as Justice is hiring someone with the ability to raise the dead under their will. Concerned, the Dogs of War intend on investigating these claims, and are traveling to a village known as Carrot Hill to gather information. [Sir Ultin, Sir Gamesly, Sir Lucario and Sir Yorefield will be participating in this quest. They will be joined by four squires, four wolfhounds and one scribe to record the journey.] Team Battle Axe (official artifact challenge): The Rod of Peter the Dark is a dangerous item that can cause much suffering to those who wield it. The Knights intend on claiming it for themselves so they can make certain it can never cause harm again. [Sir Roderick Julian, Sir Henry Julian and Sir Daymare will be taking part of this quest. They will be joined by three squires, three wolfhounds and a scribe to record the journey.] Team Halberd: In the far reaches of Norkotia, it is rumored a dangerous Idol of a bygone age resides. This item, if claimed by the wrong hands, could cause untold devastation to the world. The Knights now hunt for this idol, determined to destroy it entirely. [Sir Redford, Sir Cumic and Sir Kingson will be partaking in this quest. They will be joined by three squires, three wolfhounds and a scribe to record their journey.] All three of these teams will be in separate threads that you are welcome to join either as helpful, Neutral or even antagonists of the quest. Post your interest here if you have any and we'll see what we can make happen. More details to come soon.
  15. Everything was going well, until the mountain exploded, and fire rained down upon the island... In an attempt at expanding House Uldwar's economic power, Mia Uldwar has inadvertently angered Mt. Ergon, and all of Misral* is paying for it. Do what you can to save the island, or else the casualties will reach the tens of thousands! This event is open to the public, split into three major areas to choose from for you the writer to take part in. 1. Mia Uldwar and her forces are engaged with a life and death battle against the spirit of the Mt. Ergon itself, who is angered at their attempts to cap the mountain in order to take advantage of its abundant magic. Join her in this epic battle and stop the fire Elemental before it consumes the entire island in its wrath.** 2. Below the mountain, the jungles of Misral are burning, causing a massive stampede of wild animals and native Bugbears. You must do your part in helping to get the chaos under control, fighting the fires before the jungles are completely destroyed. 3. Port Mars is on fire! Help to extinguish the flames before the entire city is destroyed! Where will you choose to place your character? How will you help or even hinder the efforts of saving the island of Misral? Place your interest here with your character and which spot you wish to be part of in the story. Roster list and positioning coming soon.
  16. “I still remember the prophecy of thine people foretold by the soothsayer lost among the unwitting arrogance of our strength of humanity. The archaic imprecation of witchcraft and evil had spellbound us all. Were we not oft to condemn the unknown I'm sure our blood would not be cursed by the sword of the night. With faces clear and pale as the moon they flooded our lands with death and forced us to accede to a curse beyond generations. Even as I write this with great vehemence I am forced to undergo timeless torture without the honor to perish, but what more do we deserve to have lived in such hubris without recognizing the veritable truth? We are nothing to the Blood God, and worse yet, his left hand: The Blood Sword.” The Blood Sword— Gabriel Cantor. Greetings and welcome to my interest check! As I've been pulled back into the fold of Valucre, I was given the idea by @King to begin a new saga involving one of my favorite characters from Genesaris, Gabriel Cantor. He has quite a bit of history in Genesaris and throughout, but most of that is the distant past as Gabriel has been particularly "quiet". The reasoning? No one's sure, but between us here in the OOC, the truth is he's been gathering swordsmen from across the lands willing to serve Rafael/Sauriel to achieve an eldritch knowledge to which the strongest swordsmanship can be found. I already have the general idea of the saga and how things will unfold, I only need active participants and those willing to develop their characters to new heights! All are welcome. Be prepared for PG13 - R rated writing (though tastefully) as the story calls for it. Due to my experience with RP, I only actually need three people at the moment. If things go according to plan and the story stays on the rails, I'll continue to recruit and renovate the concept and story overtime. If anyone has any questions, this is certainly the time and place!
  17. @supernal I want to have an event of sorts as a send off for my 14 year old OC. I haven't been able to write much lately due to a bad mental stigma associated with it, but recently I was given an idea and its been churning in my mind for weeks. Basically, need to make sure this would be approved (You have given me permission to state in my posts before that my character possessed a means with which to cross universes/worlds using portals created by his goddess), But essentially I would like to have a massive, cursed clocktower be ripped from its normal location of Gaia Prime and dumped out somewhere in the Terrenus wilds or near Predator's Keep. The tower itself recreates events and memories for anyone standing upon the moving gears at the tower's highest level, behind the clock's face. My character, tormented by his past, returned to the tower to try and relive memories he had long buried, but the goddess who torments him twists the magic of the clocktower and forces Vince and whoever else may be in the vicinity to physically relive those events, the events themselves being corrupted recreations of Vince's actual memories in order to drive him further off the edge. I have another OC who is related to Vince, which I would use to kickstart the thread/event and lead people into the clocktower after its sudden appearance, his goal/intent to find out why the clocktower was now in Valucre [having also been familiar with the clocktower.], and why his adopted father was using his [suspected] innate magic to twist the cursed sorcery even farther. The event would have participants relive moments that I find important/of signifcant history to the character, culminating with a send-off of sorts. Is this something that you would allow me to do? Willing to work with you on the details some to fit in with Valucre lores/rules if any of that bends them.
  18. Many of us probably don’t like being hunted down. However, sadly that’s exactly what’s happening here. you and a band of others have come together to live free. To be free. However you are all either Anomalous in other words, you’ve broken the world in a fundamental manner, and this shouldn’t Exist. Or you own something that does, which means you are to be Interrogated, tortured, investagated, and incinerated. its either run and die fighting to be free, or end up in a cell to be a Expirament. You and your comparaits done have a chance against the superior forces hunting you down by yourselves but with each other maybe his rmaybe you can stay away. GRSA: they move like a hive despite being human, their weapons are dangerous to all of you, even those who are invulnerable. You are the pest they are the exterminator . Priority: Threat Level Maximum. Task force 9: Hunters in the night if it breaks reality, Kill it. They have no mercy, you will be terminated on the spot, or if they capture you, burned alive. The Soceity is the Broken man: you don’t belong, you will be caputured and locked away for your own good. You can’t hurt and you can’t be Hurt. The Cult of Zarthrax: Order is madness. You will be enslaved to free this world if it’s rules. Let only that which shouldn’t Be! Alpha Corp: theyre the top of the buisness world, and you? Your a niche product to sell. Prepare to become a Slave to corporate greed. investigation Buero: threat level Low. huh, that’s odd, it rained frogs in Carolina, time to check that out. they show up to see what’s wrong, getting found out by then usually results in one of the other factions finding out and taking over. You better be Benign to get caught by them. intergarion, Amnesia, observation and release.
  19. PLEASE READ THIS BOTH CAREFULLY & THOUGHTFULLY. This is merely a poke in the shrubs to see who's out there. I will answer questions about the [less than] current thread already in existence and how to proceed from it, pending the interest of you fine fine people. Genesaris: An Expedition in the Past. This is for a roleplay story taking place in the early years of Genesaris. A time when magical technologies are up and rising and where the land is still so very young and holds a lot of secrets to discover. A group of scientists [and travelers/guides] wants to use the newest of technologies [airships/steampunk tech] to transport themselves quickly across the land in order to follow up on leads about special plants, animals, and people. The time span the characters will face will most likely consist of years [for them]. During this time frame, they will be able to witness the birth of a new age in Genesaris. They will be able to experience the change in atmosphere and society, as well as traverse untouched lands that will eventually become more civilized as time goes on. With these things in mind, a lot of the more powerful plants [powerful as in the abilities provided by such plants] may go extinct and become very rare, so that in the present timeframe of Valucre [? AO] they will be very limited and extremely hard to come by. [Also, please take note that during this early period in the young Genesaris’ life, that it has not made itself known to the other continents of Valucre, e.g. Terrenus, Tellus Mater, etc. Also, keep in mind that weapons like guns…are nonexistent or extremely rare in this time. Advanced technology will not be used or even referred to, as it does not exist either.] This RP will fall in line with the lore of Genesaris, but will give whoever’s character, the ability to witness history as it happens. You may have free reign [with approval from King] to help create plants, animals, and old landmarks no longer in the existence of today’s Genesaris. [Approval must be made before posting any changes, new things made.] A list of preapproved plants is already in existence, and when we come upon them, I will explain what type of plant they are… And all or some of our characters [pretty much whoever chooses to] can be the first ever to try them out. We won’t know what they can do to anyone ICly….unless we experiment a little first…right? All the plants are going to be written out in the same [older]format created by OffTopic, and can be viewed in Herbalism 101. Please keep in mind that our characters will not have access to most of these plants, due to having no connection with Terrenus and other continents[Tellus Mater, Terrenus, etc.] during the timeline we will be writing in. I’m pointing them out as a reference, so you can get an idea of the design and presentation used after discovery to describe the plants, and hopefully create more new ones in a group effort by us. This also encompasses older civilizations and tribes, unknown areas and landmarks of Genesaris, and animals and creatures no longer seen in Genesaris today. When I say that, I really hope that people not only want to RP out this idea, but help to build on it by creating more flora and fauna, and can help generate great scenes of the young Genesaris. This will be a creatively fun RP, where your contributions do and will count. CURRENT Thread[Thread One]: Early Genesaris: Expedition in the Past. [cont.] Thread Two: Early Genesaris : Time Stamps This thread is optional, and is merely meant to be used as a journal for each individual. Here they can ‘write’ about their experiences, what they’ve encountered, etc. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a journal either. They can write letters to friends and loved ones as well. Old Thread as a Reference for Newcomers: EarlyGenesaris: Expedition Here is where most of the traveling and discoveries will take place during the entirety of the story. This is also where I will explain what the plants look like, and we experiment to find out their effects. A lot of them are poisonous and deadly, I will let you know beforehand whether or not it is safe. For your character. Mind you, I may warn you about the plants, but I will not warn you about the dangers being faced while traveling through the youthfully wild lands we will be in. Everyone will be at risk, including my own character. Characters/People: Looking for 3 people to join Die Shize and I as we continue our gloriously haphazard adventure. Lead Herbalist/Scientist: [The early and original] Doctor Lilium Concordia [yes…She is friggin' old, and you’ll get to see part of why in this story and your characters [if you so choose] may experience this phenomenon for themselves. And a lot of it has to do with another story not included here. Sorry.] Our Main Crew: 1. Die Shize as Dr. Jikol 2. -Lilium- as Dr. Concordia 3. Rin as Claudette Virga Von Ja'Guthra Talia 4. Thotification as Lord Ruler Suzerain, King Emperor of All Creation [Suzy] 5. Flame Hero: Endeavor as Potential Cameos: Vielle [Guinea pigs provided] NPC Guides NPC Travelers PLEASE, if you are going to join, feel free to share any ideas you may have. Don't be afraid to speak up. I like plots and ideas. Especially if they make the story more fun! If you're worried about receiving credit, don't be. Whatever contribution you come up with is your own, as long as-first and foremost-it is approved by King. ****There will be a 3 day post limit. What this means, is that if you do not post within three days of it being your turn, you will be skipped, but that’s not to say you can’t post later. You’ll just be skipped in order to keep the flow of the thread going. If you have stuff going on and are busy, that’s understandable, just let someone know what your post time may possibly be.**** I am a fan of posting order, mostly because it is less confusing in my mind. That way there aren’t two people interacting back and forth in ten posts before anyone else posts, which can deviate from the story. Important links: Genesaris Lore Herbalism 101 If interested please reference these posts: 1. Introduction - Notes about the mission. 2. Movement - Parachuting to the ground. 3. Current locale - Forest in search of whaaaaat?! PLEASE TAKE NOTE: A new thread will be created as Die Shize and I are going to break away from the old one to start fresh from where the last one ended. Please make yourself aware of this. Boon: Depends on what you contribute. Discover something awesome! Help to create new plants, artifacts, animals…etc, etc. If you have in-depth questions you don't feel like asking here, feel free to contact me via PM here on Valucre or drop me a line on Discord @Lilium#8636. ALSO, I would like to invite those people with older Kingdoms set in Genesaris to ponder the idea of guest appearances depending on the location of our troop. For those of you who would like to add to the background of your rich lore while it may have been in its youth, this could be a fun and interesting way to do so...? Or even hint to me, things you would like to have been seen, discovered, or noticed about your areas in this RP's past time frame of setting. @King @Die Shize
  20. Shall we go to war once more? Long ago in times of strife and conflict long forgotten, a crown was lost. It wasn't a crown of royalty or a tool to demonstrate a particular bloodline. Rather it was one forged of blood and fire, thousands of lives falling or rising at its will. Though the crown itself could not be destroyed despite hundreds of powerful sorcerers and intellects working laboriously to decimate the relic, they weren't able to inflict so much as a scratch upon it. So they hid it away, deep in the underground where not a single person would ever be able to hear of it, much less find it. Or so it was believed. For centuries the crown was guarded by a secret group in Renovatio that spread throughout Nu Martyr and beyond. The faction, originally sailing to Renovatio from Terrenus, was the Church of Three; a near cult like religion which believes in worship of all three gods: Gaia, Time, and Space. It was always their solemn belief that, unlike in Gaianism or the preachings of Odin Haze, these three were merciless gods. An ideology said to be deeply influenced by the religious conflicts of Tellus Mater. Those who are part of the Church of Three but of Renovation ancestry view the God of Time much the same as they would the All-Creator. One in the same, in fact. Thus when those in charge could no longer bare the risk of having Asteria's crown fall into the wrong hands, they turned it toward the Church of Three. With the Church's extreme secrecy and unwillingness to bend before those they considered Heretics, such a godly relic was considered safe in their silent possession. It was a common belief that the Church of Three was an indomitable group throughout history, a stance recently challenged in modern Terrenus by a necromancer named Lilith Reiter and her cult of power hungry warmongers. The necromancer's desire to obtain lost pieces of armor previously belonging to the Witch King Zengi proved to be the Church's downfall in Terrenus. Upon retrieving the chest plate of Zengi's armor from an underground labyrinth hidden under the city of Tia in Terrenus, Lilith Reiter also took a single living prisoner with her; one who ultimately was unable to resist her power and told of their most valuable treasure. The crown of Asteria However, Lilith was not the only one who has heard of the crown. In fact, news of the Asteria's crown being found has spread throughout Valucre like wildfire. It's corrupt power infamous for the destruction it brings in its wake and the monsters it makes out of those who wear it. Upon hearing the news and its rumored location being within his land, the PRIME of Nu Martyr, Ardon Dallas (character sheet TBD), led a small army to the Church of Three's location. After a few small skirmishes, he came out with the crown. Ardon Dallas, PRIME of Nu Martyr, now has enough power to act on his ambitions. He may have even turned his eyes upon the Grand Kommadant, his ambitions were so grand. But then another word spread. This one striking fear in even Ardon, bearer of Asteria's crown and PRIME of Nu Martyr. "The Commander is one her way to Nu Martyr for the crown. All who stand in her way will perish." Will you stand in her way and risk death for glory, or join her for power and glory? OOC Do you stand with Ardon Dallas to protect Nu Martyr (both the province and the city), or do you join the attacking party for riches, wealth, and power? Let me know so I can mark you down and keep track of all the sides! I don't have a specific player limit in mind and I don't know how many people this will attract (don't wannt be cocky :p) but I'll definitely cap it if I start feeling its getting out of hand. You CAN do miniature T1 fights, but I don't have time to settle random cat fights. So make sure you have character sheets, an agreed ruleset, and a judge before you start doing it. Narrative fights are preferred. What happens to the crown is already more or less established (PM me and Aleksei if you want to challenge my claim I guess), but the fate of Nu Martyr relies a lot of on character interactions and decisions. While the actual city of Nu Martyr is limited to a few buildings of damage (don't want to ruin a major city my first real time RPing in Tellus Mater lol) the province itself and outskirts of the capital city are essentially war grounds. As are little towns surrounding it and whatnot. So what YOU do and what YOU decide will have a major effect on how this thread plays out. I will be GM, so keep me in the loops of character interactions such that I can best orchestrate stuff within the thread. @Aleksei being the BL of Renovatio, however, will have the last say on anything she decides need her attention. I'm new to TM so if I'm doing something you guys know goes against some part of the lore or rules I missed, let me know ASAP. THIS WILL BE A BIG BATTLE. It's not a little skirmish. The crown of Asteria is a hella powerful Renovatio Relic that used to belong to the daughter of a Titan who was powerful enough to defeat a past Grand Kommadant. It's very important and PRIME Dallas isn't going to give it up easily. Nor should he. To give an idea, I'm thinking there will be about a million "soldiers" one each side. More or less. No idea how many threads this will be. Most likely one because this is sort of Lilith's/ my introduction into Renovatio so I don't want it to be too long. But a few threads will hopefully result from this. If @Aleksei is up for it, I'd like for her to take up the PRIME role for this fight. If she's too busy (cause busy busy bee she is), I can double unless someone else wants to step in. You are also allowed to "join" the attacking forces without necessarily being on Lilith's side. An example of this would be if the Dead or the Legion of Doom wanted to take advantage of this opportunity to bolster their infamy. *There shouldn't just be ONE large clash. Nu Martyr is a huge province. Make this story fun. Communicate with the other side and set up fun scenarios. Don't be afraid to lose a battle because there's more than one in a war. Clashes between player forces should be talked about before hand and planned accordingly. ? Let's affect some lore you guys! TO WAR!

  21. "United we stand, divided we will fall." Interest check: Roll12 rules Post summary to track things To keep easy track of things, write a summary at the bottom of your post. An example would be: (*Note: Monster players, do this for each of your monsters too! Name them as well, e.g. xxx A, xxx B, so it would not be confusing.) Posting order You can post multiple times, but you can only roll dice once per round. Extra posts can be used for narrative purposes. But don't put up spitfire posts! The round ends when everyone has posted, or when reasonable time has passed. You can post before the first monster post too, but that would be a narrative post, and you will still need to post again later for your attack.

  22. Genre: Western Location: Oatpeak, in Alternative Premise: The railroad stop has just been constructed. A load of provisions, medicine, money, and other goods is bound for its first stop into Oatpeak. Your role in this premise is to rob it and sell the goods on the black market for profit. FAQs Is there a GM for this roleplay? Yes. @Die Shize has graciously volunteered to GM the overall plot here. As a GM rather than a regular player don't anticipate that he will have to post every turn and sometimes his post may be simple and information just to help players, but he will also take control of key NPCs throughout the story. What roles are you looking to fill? These are listed in order of preference. If we only get enough people for the 1st, Die will GM the other sets; if we get enough for the first two, he'll only GM the last, etc A few people to play the train robbers Amenities - robber One or two to play on-board Pinkerton private detective Blex - agent One or two to play the sheriff and their deputy/deputies Wade - deputy
  23. A couple of rules+notes before I set the storyline. Please respond with your character bio first before we begin. It is not necessary to leave a backstory as further knowledge of characters will be added as the story progresses. If you have any questions please ask. I would also like to add that I prefer to write with those who are closer in age with myself. ? The time-manner of responses for this story is flexible and as a group (or otherwise) we will work with each other's schedules. I'm pretty lenient with this. I have written the beginning of Chapter one to get things started, but we may keep this post for Character and story information only. I may make a new post with a copy of the start of Chapter 1 and we will write from there. -Safe for work only. Please, no romance or sensual themes. I'd like the focus to be on the elements of the plot and character development. Violence is ok. (Please refrain from using profanity). -NO Lgbt themes/characters permitted. Thank you for understanding. -Recommended to have literate responses, but multi-paragraphs are optional depending on your preference. I don't mind the length of the responses. Add detail. Now that this little message is over, let's get to the fun part... Story plot + more. Setting: Year of 4035. Place: A planet called Xetheria. Nature: Most of the plants/wildlife are various colors. Outside of the city, there are forests as well as other towns. More info: No magical/mythical themes, the genre is mostly sci-fi. However, being it is a different planet, there are several strange animal creatures, which can be made up by whomever. Other: There is currently no real major ruler over the people, as there aren't many citizens anymore. This has led to an amount of chaos. Groups have been made with protective leaders who reign within their town or camp. Keep in mind technology has been further advanced. This includes weapons, tools, fabrics, and transport, even though the city is in the state it is in. As for a villain/antihero/antagonist character, I'm really counting on collaborating with you in regard to this. I've had a couple of general ideas. One is that either Zane Arkwright or one of your characters will have no recollection of any damage they might have caused, hence the mystery of this fallen city. However, if whoever the antagonist is, has remembered his/her actions, he/she must have a current motive for keeping everyone blind. Otherwise, if there was a war and a person alone was not responsible, there is bound to be an atagonist in the midst of the madness. I'm leaving this all in our hands, to collaborate and share ideas to create a fun and hopefully successful, suspensful, aannd exciting, story! My Starter Characters. (Basic Info). Will add more as the story develops. Name: Zane Laurence Arkwright Gender: Male Age: 24 Height: 6'1 Weight: 145lbs, Thin Hair Color/Style: Black, Semi Long, past his ears, with wisped bangs over his forehead. Eye Color: Almond shaped, Blue eyes. Clothing: Black diagonal zippered vest & Black long-sleeved shirt underneath. Dark Blue Pants, boots. Other: Right arm is a silvery blue cyborg prosthetic. Name: Freya Gender: Female Age: 22 Height: 5'6 Weight: 125lbs Hair Color/Style: Long, straight dark brown Hair, straight-cut bangs. Layers. Eye Color: Brown. Clothing: Black leggings and flats. Purple long-sleeved, knee-length tunic/dress. Cross pendant on a thin, black necklace chain. Background What is not known by most characters in this story is the destruction that had come before. I'm thinking a war or an antagonist had been the cause of this. Further information will develop as the story develops. The story takes place in a foggy, desolate city on Xetheria. Purple vines cover the ruins of each once glistening skyscraper. Some buildings are more intact than others, sure, but the roads lay cracked and remnants of what was once a prosperous city now lay nearly empty of life. Upon entering the city, few have daydreamed, have let their minds wander to visions of what life must have been like for its prior citizens. As far as it is known, those do not recall what happened, for if there was a recollection of what event had occurred here, no one had mentioned it. Families and individuals dare not live in this city, for the sight of it causes much restlessness to any who come to visit. Chapter 1: Is it the beginning or is it the End? In the midst of the city, closer to the heart of it, a young man's eyes open as fog enters the dimly lit room, encircling him. He must've left the window open and fallen asleep. Tired and groggy, he lifted himself to his feet. The window, from where he stood, was set just at his head, so when he went over to it, he had to shut it by standing on the tips of his toes. The room was in an underground space just below the building. That must've been why it was mostly intact. In the room, everything was set up in an organized, minimalist manner. There was his small makeshift bed, an old, rusted table, and a small backpack on the floor leaning against the wall. He had been living here for as long as he could remember. The door of the room was dented, and he couldn't get it open to explore the rest of the underground rooms, which he assumed were just old storage rooms for what used to be an office building. Keeping up with daily routine, he took fruit from his bag he picked the day before, put the backpack over his shoulder, and climbed out the window.
  24. IC Teaser: Breaking News: The City of Casper has succumbed to a virulent plague. Prior to the enactment of a city-wide quarantine in hopes of impeding the spread of the contagion, thousands of citizens perished in agony as the plague ravaged victims' bodies and tore them from this world (see A Great Plague Comes to Casper in the Relevant Threads section of this OP). Yesterday, Casper's plight grew exponentially as the internal disruption posed by the plague exposed the city to a precipitous external attack. Assailants, whose identities have not yet been released to the public, engaged military forces within the city (see A Levee to Stop the Flow in the Relevant Threads section of this OP). While the assailants were driven back, estimates of the casualties suffered from the combined effects of the plague and the battle were estimated at five thousand persons with several thousand infected still quarantined within the city. Until further notice, government officials have declined to release more detailed information about the battle or the current status of the plague. Travel to and from the City of Casper is prohibited. However, sources at the boundary of the quarantined zone have reported a fleet of airships bearing the House Glasmann seal and the Glasmann Cryonics logo have arrived on the scene and, after a brief delay, passed through the quarantine and into the city proper. Does the collaboration between the Terrenus Military and one of the continent's premier medical firms guarantee a happy end to this catastrophe or does the involvement of the most infamous member of the Glasmann line, Caeceila Glasmann, imply a darker final solution to the epidemic? To find out more, lets go live to eyewitnesses at the scene... 15,000 infected individuals remain in Casper. Courtesy of Peacekeeper Zeph, the spread of the virus on which this arc centers has been halted for a time. Glasmann Cryonics is moving in to assist military forces with neutralizing all traces of the plague, analyzing the vectors by which the plague spread, and developing a vaccine against the plague so it will not pose a threat in the future. While members of the general not permitted to enter the city for their own safety, individuals supporting House Glasmann and military operations and a couple of individuals with special connections are allowed to enter secure, decontaminated zones within the city. Individuals with special connections could include reporters, medical personnel, emergency relief personnel, representatives of humanitarian aid organizations, and others who would like to be involved in this effort. Others might gain access to the city by busting through the quarantine or from having been trapped within the city once the quarantine was enacted. Shortly after this scene begins, certain individuals will begin to vanish from the city with little to no explanation. It's up to your characters to uncover the common link between those who have disappeared (if any), shed light on what has become of them, and take action in accord with their moral compasses. Other mysteries may be explored as well at your discretion. I'll be furnishing the opposition for the duration of this plot. A slot is reserved for @LastLight, but I'm not setting a limit on how many players can participate. If you would like to be part of the opposition or do something else related to what I have planned, please notify me of that somehow and we'll work something out. This will be a canon thread will have direct effects on how well a certain scenes I have planned for the future will proceed. Relevant Threads:
  25. This is a preliminary interest check, which will be light on details. In a week or two, I will be drafting a fuller check depending on the results of this, and a few other considerations. The purpose of this interest check is to announce that in the coming weeks, I will be running a major plotline which will result in the collapse of Weland. Though it won't happen overnight, the ramifications of this plotline will begin the process by which Weland is undone and its civilization is shattered beyond repair. The cause of this calamity will be interference in Weland's internal affairs by the Cothic Church, a religion based a couple hundred miles to Weland's east. Before I create a thread opening this event up to the wider authorship of Valucre, I want to invite any and all characters who would have an already established interest in defending Weland from such a collapse to contact me and learn more. This is not a call for someone who would like to have an interest, but has not participated in or written in Weland. This is a call for people who can provide a history of at least a few posts in Weland to show that their characters and stories already intersect with Weland's own. If you have such a character and would be interested in competing and contesting against its destruction, please PM me at your earliest convenience. Thank you.
