    Naughty.... Or Nice? (OOC)

    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
  2. 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:

    Recruiting: Raid on the Iron Queen

    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
  4. 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
  5. "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.

  6. 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.

    To Make an Omlet...

    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?
  8. Mae Govannen friends and Strangers alike! My name is Richter Konig and I am the Captain of the Airship The Justicar. I had to disappear for a time for unforseen events. But I have returned and I am looking to recruit a small band of Merry... Opportunists. Have no fear I am man of Morals and Scruples. I only employ in honest and noble pursuits. Please find me at the Tavern if you are interested in joining my Crew.
  9. I had an idea for a super power system based on the different Paths of Buddhism. such as the Deva, Ashura, Human, Animal, Preta, and Narka paths. With certain personality quirks in each path, and a whole power system for each class. It would be a huge post if I put all the details up. And I already put it down and I can’t copy and paste which is why some of you may see it as simply blank. either way I hope your interested and I’d be willing to post more details but basically deva: Path of the Gods, controls universal aspects. Superiority complex and easily addicted. Ashura psth, emotionally dead lives violence can modify their bodies. Growing arms enchanting muscle stength Etc. Human Path: Decpetive, prideful but bale to learn. Can use their minds as weapons, passion, mind reading, ripping out souls. animal: communication , commanding, or taking of animal abilities. Could potentially summon them to. Ferocious and easily controlled by the human Path. preta path: the path of greed. Always hungry and thirsty yet unable to satisfy that void. Often leaching on others. narka: gealingand judgement. Is pretty complicated and intricate because in the lore this path punishes all other paths based on its life or lives. Then reincarnates then once they have been punished really struggled with it. a lot of rps have to as a school where your working on your powers however I flipped the script andwell you need to keep you powers a secret to avoid fear, ridicule, and ending up in a government lab. Or being a target for recruiting form a shady underworld organization. Sorry im tired I spent hours typing it down only for it not to transfer over.

    Die in a Swamp

    You read it right! @Moon Owl is preparing to lead his glorious 1st Legion of Coth against none other than the massing Sahaugin tribes in Coconino Marsh and we need someone to play a force of ~200 Sahaugin to oppose and eventually lose to the 100 men of the 1st! This will be a canon thread, so dedicated thread-finishers are encouraged to apply.

    The Plague: Weland (Open)

    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.

    The Unnaturally Gifted Children

    Okay, so let me first state this semi confusing statement. 1: This is not a school RP. 2: This RP will feature a school. Basically, in ways it both is and isn't a school RP. What my idea is basically a group of young characters that happen to be or become friends and classmates getting involved in one another, only instead of typical drama one might expect, they end up getting involved in things like Terrorist plots, investigating ghost stories, dealing with pan-dimensional bounty hunters seeking new and unique trophys, dealing with various dangerous and powerful monsters, saving the day, sometimes causing some chaos, getting into fights with seasoned warriors, and practicing and perfecting their supernatural and magical abilities while also sometimes using them in unnatural ways (for example, while exploring a mountain, suddenly using a combination of Earth Magic, Water Magic, and Fire Magic to build a hot springs and then taking a dip, or maybe something more simple and casual, like summoning a monster to ride to school to avoid being late, or such). Basically, it would be a variety of RP down the line, with some comedic and casual moments as well as plot and intense moments. It would probably be on Terranus somewhere, still looking at cities but if anyone has a suggestion that would be awesome. RIght now, considering a place near the ocean, like Casper, but still looking through stuff. We can probably work something out about ages, but this is the character I plan to use right now. Anyways, please let me know if you are interested!

    There Be A Wolf In These Ruins

    Setting: The island of Corinth, thick jungles and hot weather. Daytime, early morning. The Skulking Grounds Genre: Adventure Objective: To claim both the True Crown of Ursa Madeum and to reclaim the remains of Sir Sarvos the Unchecked Danger level: High- A vicious werewolf prowls the grounds, as well as the ghosts of the hunted and traps covering the estate. Reward: The True Crown of Ursa Madeum Desired Story Arc: The full force of the Dogs of War knight order is coming down to Corinth to quest for treasures of great power. In one of the ruined fortresses, known with dread as the Skulking Grounds, these champions of House Uldwar desire both artifact and remains of one of their greatest members in known history, Sarvos the Unchecked. Recently, the knights have uncovered knowledge of a thief who had stolen the crown shortly after the disappearance of the Queen, a master of stealth who had come to Ursa Madeum to plunder all of its magical treasures. After pilfering the True Crown of Ursa Madeum, the thief ventured into the Skulking Grounds, knowing that any artifact of Sarvos the Unchecked would fetch a high price. The thief went into the ruins, but has never come out, his death likely due to the werewolf rumored to lurk within the ruins to this very day, always hunting for new prey to devour in its massive maw. What Roles Am I Looking For?: At the very least one person to serve as either helper or competition for the Crown and other such treasures that may be in the Skulking Grounds. Others can join in, really just depends on how your character fits into the story overall. Expectations: Good communication, an open mind for ideas and a willingness to keep disagreements civil. Aiming for at least five pages for this thread. Created Opportunities: If Oscar Uldwar is allowed both the remains of Sir Sarvos the Unchecked and the True Crown of Ursa Madeum, then he will indeed be a force to be reckoned with in the political and military scene of Ursa Madeum.
