  1. “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!
  2. 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.”
  3. 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 the thread. 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:
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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)
  8. @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.
  9. 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.

  10. 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
  11. 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!

  12. "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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.
  15. 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:
  16. 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.
  17. Hello and greetings I’ve recently been accepted here and am in need of practicing for possible para rp. This will be my first time doing such a style.What I need is just a small amount of character info and a picture if you are able.Name:Age:Hight:Weight:Eyes:Race:Alliance:Force talents:The primary focus in the beginning will be to see to it that as certain someone gets off Kamino for each of our characters to survive. “Mayday.. mayday... A cloacked man rascally coughs up a little more blood and gasps. “mayday.. calling the Kamino system for.. for emergency medical..” he coughed a bit more. “support.. turning on auto pilot..." A bright red light flickers as he flips a few switches. Upon landing on the platform in the dark and stormy night blood from the wounded male rushes with the water and off the platform. Before passing out from wounds mixed with the damaged armor and the salty rain water he looks at Y/C and asks "and who.. are you?". The worrier collapses and is taken to emergency care by 2 clone troopers.I apologize if if this is really shallow I did come from a Facebook page.
  18. In the city of Weland, on the Continent of Terrenus, an event would happen which would make World News. That said, it is not something big, like a war or immediate mass deaths. It is not something that can be fought by swords and spell, at least not mainly and not effectively. No, it is something so small....yet so deadly. And it is starting now. A Virus....a Plague...has occured... The setting starts at night. The hospitals had recently getting some excess activity, and requested some help from various doctors groups hoping they would send doctors to assist their overload. After all, they understand the dangers of having an overworked hospital staff. After some work, or maybe resting from their travels after just arriving in the city, a group of individuals arrives at the Saezaeshita Hot Spring and Onsen, a popular and well known establishment with well known healing and rejuvenating powers. Perhaps they desired to take a dip to cool off after work, or to prepare themselves for extended work hours, or just wanted to rest up comfortably, but this social envirornment is considered safe and healthy. And while they are bathing and resting in a safe place, unaware at first more and more people are falling to some new sort of disease. And soon enough, in the middle of the night while everyone is asleep, a messanger arrives delivering an urgent report to one of the doctors staying there: An Illness has been confirmed, and its spreading through the city. Stage 1 of the DIsease: Fevers, running noses, coughing, some paling of the skin, and dizziness are the main symptoms. Stage 2: After a few hours to an entire day, they will begin expereincing hallucinations, have headaches, and in some cases their body produces a strange parasite inside their own bodies. Stage 3: A few more hours to another day later, and they will begin to enter psychosis while any magical or supernatural powers they have may begin to run amok. Many give into darkness and strangeness and will assault, normally and otherwise, any other non-infected being they find. IF a parasite developed, they will actively try to beat down and infect the healthy. The parasite has to be removed through emergency surgery mainly, with alternative methods maybe being possible. Stage 4: Once they reach this stage, they begun to convulse and have major Organ Failures. If a parasite exists, it takes over and fuses with the body, absorbing as much of the memories and information the host originally had as it can. However, they quickly lose their ability to be infectious after this stage. Please note that as they do not rise from the dead, this is NOT a zombie plague. The virus can spread through fluids or skin to skin contact. It can also be spread through coughs and sneezes. It is possible to take measures against being infected, but one has to work quickly and ensure that the methods remain fresh and operational. Additionally, the virus is immune against being cured magically, but is less resistant against anything that helps prevent the spread of viruses in the first place, like a purification field. Here are the Phases I have in mind for the RP: Phase 1: Social gathering and get together where the characters can meet and talk to each other before the action starts. Phase 2: After being woken up and alerted to the situation, the characters all try to work together to help identify, analyze, and deal with the infection, teaming up with the authorities and hospitals. Altercations with panicked people and rioters as a Quarantine begins to be established. Some more rowdy or heavily infected people begin to get violent. Phase 3: As the situation gets more stressful and tragic, and some of the Quarentines fail, the virus causes more people to go out of control and those with the Parasite mutation actively try to undermine the protagonists and their allies while also trying to spread the infection. Phase 4+: Most likely, it will end with the situation contained in Weland and the virus being stopped. However, in consideration of player choices and possible outcomes, there are different endings, such as the Virus spreading to other cities and so on. There is a need for Doctors and anyone with medical knowledge, as well as Adventurers who can help keep the peace and protect the doctors while they work. Please note that due to the direness of the situation, even if they arrive late any help would still be appreciated and it is open to join.
  19. In Renovatio a miraculous construction is being created specificly in the series of citys that correlated themselfs into what is known as Lexdord which is a state of Oo'xora located in Nehalen.

  23. Hello everyone! So one of my favorite role plays I made on here was a quest to take back the world from a tyrant demon: A'rrazaah. Unfortunately, that roleplay died out and I want to make a remastered version with more people. Same story, just different people. So, is anyone interested? Here's the original.
  24. Setting: Alethea, the Underground, clear weather, daytime. Genre: Crime Mystery Objective: To bust up a ring of smugglers who have stolen a cache of Aluran eggs from Flock Cloud-Dance. Danger level: High-(This group is dedicated with getting away with the sale of the purely innocent offspring of the Aluran people. They will not go down quietly nor will they go without a fight. Hyperion authorities have authorized that anyone looking to turn these felons in may do so dead or alive.) Reward: Large sum of gold, notoriety amongst those in the criminal underworld of Alethea, and a personal gift from Flock Cloud-Dance. Desired Story Arc: Reasonably malleable so long as it stays within the confines of the lore of the given area. Intro: Huxbert "Black Bull" Goldgrave, a recent addition into the rough and tumble world of bounty hunting. His first job, the leader of a ruthless group of smugglers known as the Snatchers, who just so happens to be a real son of a bitch of a werebear. What he was doesn't matter to the minotaur, only that sweet payoff at the end does, so he puts in the time to try and pin down their location within Alethea. That is where the other writers come in. Help or hinder Huxbert in his journey as he delves into the dark depths of the underbelly of Alethea, risking life and limb to take down this group of outlaws. Your choice determines the outcome of this story, and could very well shape the fate of lives born and unborn. What Roles Am I Looking For?: At the very least two people with each or both playing a role that I would wish to have for this quest. Your character doesn't have to meet this requirements, they are only a preference for helping to make the story go smoother. 1. Someone of neutral or good alignment to help Huxbert. 2. Someone of neutral or evil alignment to oppose Huxbert. Expectations: Good communication, an open mind for ideas and a willingness to keep disagreements civil. Created Opportunities: With the smuggling ring defeated, a question is left hanging in the air. Who were they working with, and why did they want Aluran eggs?
