  1. Audio log Dr. Brett Date: [ERROR]/[ERROR]/18 618 [DATA CORRUPTED] [DATA CORRUPTED] [DATA CORRUPTED] [DATA CORRUPTED] Log 5 "-is Doctor Brett, daily log. It's day... 5, since the incident. VCF has lost. Valucre, has lost. Facility-03 ceased sending signals by dawn, the last sentinel, our last hope is gone. OS-01 has brought a mass exodus to CS-0001, only for the arks to be ripped apart before making it anywhere near the vortex. I lost him, I lost my scott the other day. He pushed me to the sewers as one of them yanked him towards the skies. I closed my eyes but I could still hear his blood-curdling screams. The snap of his muscles, his bone cruched as his windpipe filled with his own blood. I ran, I didn't look back. I didn-.... [Doctor Brett would continue to sob for 15 minutes, where audible large footsteps could be heard above her. Repetitions of "We shouldn't have opened it" and "Why did we open it" continued for these 15 minutes] Fuck this foundation, fuck this life. I can't live on like this, no one should either. That's why this exists, site-909. CS-0078 is here, a temporal time manipulator; a time travel device. Organics can't travel back in time, but objects can. I'm going to send out a singal for anyone, anyTHING that can get me to site-800, 100 klicks from here. Best case, a group of survivors is willing to risk it all from this ever happening, erasing this line of time from ever existing. Worst case, history repeats itself. I'll continue these logs. If anyone finds these, I have failed. There is no hope. Brett signing off." -Log #5 of DR.Brett, found on site-800 roughly 2 km in a grassy field. Note: No records exist of a DR.Brett exist, or of an active site-800 [defunct by orders of OS-01 25 years ago.] As you've guessed, this is a time travel RP! I had a dream this morning, a rather unenjoyable nightmare. I was within a refuge centre, dark grey concrete with people packed in like sardines. We waited for rescue, it never came. Then we heard a loud thud. Then another. Another, and another. A poem was said, something related to being hungry. I can't remember what was said, but I do remember the roof being ripped off and large, grinning teeth and dark empty eyes staring at us, down like lunch. I ran, ran as fast as my legs could carry until I reached an abandoned apartment, and the nightmare ended. That feeling of desperation and helplessness, that's what I want to convey in writing. What I want to share with others, it's terrifying and thrilling 😄 The idea is that the VCF opened pandora's box, CS-0666, and unleashed hell on Valucre. Gigantic man-eating monsters roam the lands. Hounds of hell scorch the grounds. Gigantic winged creatures bring down all that tries to fly, and amphibious abominations destroy all those that set sail. Major civilizations have fallen, VCF has fallen as well. Dr.Brett is within Site-909, with CS-0078. Her goal is to head to Site-800 where pandora's box was opened and retrieve it. Send it back to the past, along with a warning, evidence and CS-0078 itself. She can't do it alone, she needs anyone's help, anything. In this future, nothing will be certain. If you join, your quest will be based on luck. In 100 km, anything can happen. Shambling zombies feasting upon your body, titans with soulless eyes munching on your corpse, your body seared alive by inferno hounds, anything is possible and nothing is safe. Some WILL die, some will perish. Some will have to sacrifice themselves, and some will lose. But it doesn't matter. As long as Dr Brett finishes her mission and sends back a warning to the past, then we all win. The future is prevented, the disaster is averted. All thanks to you (In the future of course). 😄 So who's in? Keep in mind, this is 20 years into the future. You can make an entirely new character or use an existing character who may have survived the first 5 days. Will be fun I hope 😄 I rarely try to be a GM, so this'll be sort of a new thing for yours truly.
  2. Foreword: The town of Blesselbrook is hardly a place you can find on maps, its quaint, generic, and may or may not exist. However its a place people sort of end up in every now and again, with no idea how they got there and feeling that a strange air is about the place, these travelers who appear are said to be not quite the same, sometimes in subtle ways, sometimes in extreme ways. Regardless, travelers are welcome to spend whatever coin they have and help around before they appear back where they came from. hard working people always need help and Blesselbrook is not without its dangers. The town is under frequent threat from things such as witches, goblin towers, and the dreaded Blesselhog. A new group of travelers are sure to appear soon! OOC: Allow me to introduce to you all a new idea. Valucre's first ever character potluck, something that I have no idea if anyone has done this before. I have no idea how this will go How the potluck works is that everyone involved submits a character that they own/control. it can be a pre-existing character, or a new one if you want to. once a sufficient number of characters are submitted by a certain date. Each character will be randomly assigned to a participant to RP as, in a non-canon, open ended, RP in the town of Blesselbrook, which I just made up. The idea of this is to have fun and try to play someone else's character as authentically as possible, or with your own little spin. You can try to go just off the character sheet, or try to get a deeper impression from RPs that character has been in. The only rule is that you are respectful of the character you got and their creator, this is hopefully supposed to be fun. If you want to participate comment a character and check in here. Understand that you can get literally any character submitted and you character can end up with literally any participant. with luck this can be a great opportunity to play a character you wouldn't otherwise ever play as. Hope you guys are interested! current deadline for submissions is Friday the 13th, guess what, It's closed now Edit: suggestions for activities are also welcome Participants: (there will be more than 4 slots) -Squid peanut - The Ash Keeper -Thotification (Zashii) - Shakka-Mienza-Zuluro -Fennis Ursai - Xyros -Gr8ves! - Jaw Finder -The Fire Heart - Linda Linda -Djinn&Juice - Tolok Sur Submitted Characters -Jaw Finder (don't feel like you have to put in weird characters) -Linda Linda (The chance to become a big meme!) -Shakka-mienza-zuluro -Xyros (This character sheet is currently bare bones, this will only be a problem if it is this way by the deadline.) -Tolok Sur (This meme is arson flavored mmmm) - The ash keeper (I should remember to add a link)
  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 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:
  4. 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?
  5. 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)
  6. and then the world shook (for it cannot fathom the unknown)— Hello everyone! Vielle here. 😊 I'm looking for some writing buddies to go have a bit of an adventure of sorts, to ease my way back into the writing rhythm. Seeing as my own lore and locations haven't been properly canonized yet, I'd like to go out and play in other people's sandboxes while I sort my own stuff out. 😂 So: a "casual" adventure exploring the wildlands of Taen it is! Taken from the Taen Quests and Opportunities index: I'm thinking post-apocalyptic, isolated, mind-wrenching, Death Stranding/HP Lovecraft/Portal themes as we venture out from the safety of civilization and into the unknown reaches of Taen's mountains. With the worldrift portal a yawning nebulous hole in the sky, we might even encounter some strange things from other realms, other worlds—and who knows? If we can make it back home with our minds still our own, then we'd have quite the story to tell. 👀 tl;dr: I'm looking for 1-2 writing partners who can post at least once every two days! Preferably people I haven't written with yet before, so I can make new friends with y'all I haven't met yet. ❤️ Also, I don't mind if we all post with the brevity rules—it is even encouraged! Keeps the story moving and no one gets bored, and I'd also very much like to shape this story alongside you guys. 🤗 Will probably start this one up by this weekend or sooner. Just let me know below or in a PM if you're interested! Have a nice day, you! ❤️
  7. Lunaris has always been a frontier town. As the first settlement built upon the discovery of the Taen subdimension, it has seen its share of adversity. From normal threats like bandits, to a city-sized hydra bursting from beneath her streets, the city and its people fought hard to get to where they are now. This has bred a spirit of self reliance among the populace, and until now there has been little more than a token city guard to keep order. But recently it has been made clear that more is needed. A devastating string of crimes taking place over the span of a day has highlighted the need for a rapid response force, as well as a formal law enforcement apparatus. Enter the Lunarian Protectorate. For our very first official Law Enforcement agency, we need recruits! All positions listed in the lore page are available, but right now what we most need is a Sheriff! Applicants should be tough, independent, with a history of combat or police experience. Apply now! @supernal May I have a banner pls?
  8. CreativeCommons "I knew she was trouble from the moment she walked in. Some guys'll tell you they know these things from the colour of a woman's lipstick, or something about their legs. Me? I look at the fear in their eyes, the mud on their feet, and the rain that has them soaked from head to toe. That's how you know someone didn't have a lot of time to think when they decided they needed your help, running through the downpour like a fox from the hunt. Also easy to guess from there they don't have the money for it either, given they couldn't get a cab, or an umbrella. That's why I turned her away. Shouldn't have, but I did. Besides, I'm a private eye, not a bodyguard. Still, she shoved a box in my hands, and said if anyone came asking after her, to ask for her name, and if I didn't get the right answer, spin a yarn on where she'd be. Said my life depended on it as much as hers did, and damn it, I knew she was telling the truth on that one. So I hid it, and wouldn't you know it, she's dead on the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Berendo Street two days later. Didn't have to spin no yarn either, so that's off my conscience. But what is gnawing at me... is what happened to her, and why. So if you know about that, or if you don't but wanna help me figure it out... well, what's her name?" So, as part of recent goings on in Elendaron, I have been tasked with administrating a little story, set in another world, in another time. Our location of choice will be 1920s Los Angeles, just as the Depression has struck the hammer blow, and the city is awash in many new faces. We'll start with a little flashback, establishing how any would-be volunteers got there: in short, you were guests of Elder Boldar, a forest sprite in Vechynacht who espouses to have found a way that his people might live safely in their ancestral lands, despite the effective collapse of reality around them. There's just the small problem that will eventually come out of his daughter - the one actually responsible for figuring out this supposed solution - having disappeared into a rift and not coming back. And well, he's treated you just so well with his feast, the least you could do is a mount a rescue kthxbye. Unlike previous instances, characters who volunteer for this escapade will retain their memories. Indeed, everything about you will seem... unchanged, except for the fact you'll arrive in this strange new(?) world with little more than the clothes on your back. Any other material indication that you are from another world is going to be absent. As for your abilities, for those who may have them... well, you'll have to see, won't you? For the sake of keeping this rolling, I'd like to set a three day posting schedule - that is, post in three days or get skipped. Major actions should be attempted rather than automatically assumed. Picking up a bottle of premium prohibition liquor without asking is fine, thinking you get a free pass to whack it into a guy's face and watch them fall to the floor by the end of your own post is another matter. Unless it's Mugsy.
  9. "Hello there. My name is Amber. I can't believe Madon has me doing outreach but here we are. Anyways, as you can probably tell, the Legend of the Emblem has made a surprising comeback thanks to the efforts of @EpicRome23 and @NuclearCommando. So far we've made some progress in the valley, like stopping some bandits, meeting some strange allies, meeting some stoned wizards, and finding out Madon has some common sense after all! Shocker! That said, the amount of common sense he has is still low, so we could use some allies. And that's where you can come in. I'll have my friend here explain the details. Thank you Amber. Anyways, so far we're on our second thread of LOTE, which I have provided links below: Ignore the one star rating, I think Amber did that. "Hey don't pin what you did on me you jerk." We're at a crucial point in our thread, where we're seeking out a couple allies to join us on the journey to gather some dragon stones and legendary weapons, and also go through some wild antics and memes in the process. So if you got a character or two who could join in on the process, then we'd love to have you along. Given this is based off of Fire Emblem, we're memeing it and have a plot going on that hits on those points, and we're doing things like supports and such and what have you. Who all is in this so far? From Epic we have: Madon: The Exarch of Isore, and the "Lord" of our party. "And also a tad brainless." Wymp: The Exarch's retainer, and a countermage. "Also kind of a wimp if you ask me." Owend: A member of the Grey Knights and ally to the party. Stoned Wizards: "Need we say more?" From me we have: Amber: The resident mage/cleric. Also breaks FE logic. "Dang right I do." Mason: A spec-ops man from another world, with weaponry of another time. "Quite mysterious... and also kind of handsome." Eve: A girl with a literal split personality. And quite skilled with the bow. Now you know our cast, perhaps you'd like to join them? We do have two big priorities: You have to be active, as we're trying to keep posts coming as quick as we can, as in less than three days per post. And, you have to be in it for the long haul. We got a lot of things coming up in the future, now I understand if things come up that make you have to leave Val for a long period of time that we can't plan for. But aside from that, we want to keep a consistent party throughout this. Knowledge of Fire Emblem is not required, but recommended so you can understand the memes we mock. Discord is also optional for keeping tabs on each other. "So if you're interested please let us know. If you want to know some lore, ask @EpicRome23, make him do some work for a change instead of having me do it." Or you can ask me of course. But Epic generally does have a greater grasp of the lore than I do. I just come up with plot ideas he works the lore into.
  10. Ursa Madeum has made its decision, a new King sits on the throne. To celebrate this momentous event, you are invited to mingle, drink, and be merry. There are no restrictions as to who can come! Commoners and nobles of all varieties are welcome to enjoy this celebration in comfort and peace. The Castle of Andelusia and its King hopes to see new and familiar faces. Thread: Masquerade! Every face a different shade! Where: Andelusia, UM. What: Masquerade ball open to the public! Posting Expectations: This event has the potential of getting large, so the posting order is pretty open! Tag all the peeps you're talking with to make things less confusing. If an order is needed for your group, then discuss that among yourselves. The Deets: This is a party for everyone to come in and have a good time! I expect some people will want to talk politics, and Milorian is open to entertaining those kinds of talks, but that's not what this ball is all about. This is an opportunity for the new King to get to know everyone and vice-versa. I'm all for shenanigans, but I will lay down the law if things get a little outta hand - please don't break the castle. The Castle: Red is off-limits; green is open. MAP BY @Ataraxy SO HE FEELS GOOD. Things to Note: A Council of Dryads from the Free Marches are holding a meeting in the garden to discuss the current state of nature of Ursa Madeum. They are open to inquiries and are partial to acorns. The Lounge has been occupied by a group of dwarves who are far into their cups for the night. They are holding an arm-wrestling competition; the winner gets a prize. Participants: Open How-to: Dice Rolling Thread - Look at the result for the D2. If a 1 is rolled, you won! If a 2 is rolled, then you lose that round. There will be 3 rounds per-participant. You need a 2/3 win to get the prize. A mourning fairy has taken advantage of the famous festivities. Its victims experience sudden feelings of grief, and if the fairy is not caught, the grief can turn one mad. Catch the fairy and receive a reward. A witch is dropping elemental rune stones around the castle! These stones can be used to enchant weapons, armor, or yourself; only two stones per participant, please. Stones: wind, water, fire, earth

  13. 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
  14. Research the Valley of Elemental Stone Located in Taen is an untouched valley, its beauty and potential ready for exploring. The recently discovered valley holds a high volume of elemental stone, resulting in anomalous and ever changing terrain. Floating islands and rivers, endless waterfalls, creeping mist and more. The flora and fauna found have perfectly adapted to this environment, exclusively found within the valley. "Study how water flows in a valley stream, smoothly and freely between the rocks. Also learn from holy books and wise people. Everything - even mountains, rivers, plants and trees - should be your teacher." Official Page Basic Overview ~ Objective ~ Explore, research and catalog the geography of the valley. Difficulty ~ Easy Reward ~ One adapt level summon/familiar, adapt level enchanted item or oddity trinket. Hello and welcome everyone! I've decided to start my first large scale project and currently looking for others to join. The project in question is meant to be fairly laid back and more wholesome, but can go in any direction if desired. The purpose is to build upon the valleys lore, allowing participants to create and shape its geography. Building a catalog of what can be found there such as fauna, flora, fungi, terrain, landscape, phenomena, etc. So far nothing has been made beyond a basic outline, so this is pretty much a blank template. The starting point will be Hydra’s Haven, participants will be transported to the location via airship. Once there you’ll be allowed to go off in a group or solo, do whatever you want whilst you're there. However, the main goal is to explore and research the inhabitants. You’ll be able to create your own plants, animals, terrain features, anomalies, etc and they’ll be added to the official page. Create as much or as little as you desire, just follow the simple template below if you do decide to make something. A more detailed template can be created if desired. E.G for fauna you could add subdivision, temperate, etc. The example below is simply the minimal content required. Researcher name: Your characters name Name: The name of your creation. Classification: Flora, fauna, topography, anomalie, etc. Descriptions: Description of your creation. Upon return you’ll be rewarded for a job well done. You'll be able to choose one of the three listed rewards mentioned in the basic overview, the item or summon will be randomly created by me. Examples of enchanted items could be something along the lines of an enchanted sword or ring. Examples of summons/familiars could be an elemental slug or miniature psionic dragon. Examples oddity trinkets could be a compass that always points home or a necklace that gives you an out of body experience. If you want something specific then feel free to ask, but I won’t be creating anything too powerful. Thanks for reading! I'm always open to suggestions if you have any, if you have any questions then don’t be afraid to ask. Current Crew @Thotification @Chemister_Kaane @Infernal @Vilhardt
  15. Dawic is an interesting place, full of dwarves, sea caves, and giant crocodiles. I’m eager to dip my toe back into the RP waters and see about posting a simple adventure. I’m looking for three or four RPers that would like to go on this journey with me. The thread will have a three day skip rule for posts, and a posting order. The goal of the thread is to explore Dawic and the sea caves. Simple, right? The best part about simple threads is that anything could happen. If you’re interested, please let me know.
  16. The Doctor is in! And he’s looking for individuals to join him in taking over a hospital. And it’s not any old Hospital too, but the one and only Mausoleum. Combining the best magical and technological healthcare available, the facility houses advanced tech and potent arcane instruments for the purposes of healing and recuperation. The Mausoleum was originally in a continent that has now been destroyed/ assimilated. Being a sizable facility with prominent individuals seeking treatment, there existed a teleportation drive within the building that moved it to the outskirts of Last Chance in Terrenus territory where it has operated all these years. Mercenaries, outlaws, heroes, people looking for arthritis medicine, anyone is welcome to the gate-crashing party. Looters are welcome but the main purpose is to commandeer the facility as a base of operations for the doctor and any interested parties thereafter. Expect some resistance from the facility security and probably some of the staff. Look at it this way though, if you get hurt, we’re in a hospital already! This RP has started Current Players: I'll be leading the effort with Dr. Navarr, with a few high-functioning junkies in tow. @amenities will be playing the Head Administrator Raiders Include: @supernal will run join with the Terenus Military (This group/faction is its own thing although anyone is welcome to play on the side of the law/government personnel as a parallel group) @Trexasle With Leontias Metalliene @Rabbit With Vito and Floki @Turquoisie With Gabriel @SteamWarden With Nikolai @Monoxide With Chad @Nebula With Alkha @Praetorian With Farkis Come join the fun! Links for info: Mausoleum Informational, WC thread, IC Thread (Though the IC thread is defunct) Main Objectives: a) Overthrow the administrative staff and security forces within the facility b) Assimilate submissive staff if capable c) Reestablish presence in Terrenus Optional Objectives: a) Minimize civilian casualties to avoid governmental reaction b) Minimize structural damage to the facility Loot Division: a) All generic resources (currency, generic drugs, personal equipment) acquired should the mission succeed will be divided half, with one part remaining with those assuming command of the facility, with the other half divided among all other participants in whatever manner they deem appropriate. (these aren't going to be good guys so maybe expect a little squabbling over the loot.) b) Large equipment (cybernetic implantation tables, rune smith tables, etc.) are not to be part of the loot division, although interested parties may barter/negotiate for them if they so wish. c) Participants will have free lifetime access to the Mausoleum's services via a VIP card. VIP cards are bearer-only, meaning anyone who has it is honored, regardless of whether they were the original participating character or a thief/murderer/scavenger/heir who happens to possess it. (free here meaning IC interactions are not as demanding as it would be to out-patients) Other Perks: Parties interested in investing, or otherwise becoming part of the new staff get first priority for positions and such. @vielle calling dibs on the success of this operation.

  17. (Description of quest, for reference:) (Link to OOC:) So! I've made an interest check for this quest before. However, events have conspired, and there is only two of us who remain undertaking this quest. I'd like to re-open recruitment to 2 or 3 people interested in undertaking this quest! The action is still in its infancy, so it's not at all difficult to explain how your character got there. I'll be applying my usual pace of expecting one post every three days, but as always, I'm willing to make exceptions for order and posting time and such as long as you let me know what is going on. Communication is key, yo.
  18. Nobody knows exactly how, but pigs have invaded the pocket dimension of Taen a long time ago, and have since adapted quite well to living in the Moss Forest. In the past, Rixnaurs, Garanthas, Mork'Outh, and especially Zkriz'kas kept their numbers in check. Did the settlement of the dimension by sapeint humandoids, the Xer-Orians, or something else allow their population to explode? Who knows? All I know is that they're now a fucking nuisance and need to die! Jungle pigs are doing the same thing more "normal" pigs do everywhere else: destroy crops, damage property, and ravage native life. Jungle pigs though, have camouflaging fur and can climb trees, so they're also devouring native tree fruit like a fat neckbeard at a buffet, and are mean and aggressive enough to fight, and collectively take down rixaurs, garanthas, xer-orians, and are in a vicious territorial war with the Zkriz'ka population; the pigs currently have the upper hand. The very ecosystem of Taen could be at stake! Now that the problem has very visibly hit Lunaris, Thurgood and Aveline Singlance, owners of the Mil Dot Lunaris, are sponsoring a massive, no-illusion-of-a-limit-whatsoever, pig hunt, offering prizes for the most dead-jungle-pig weight, specials on arms and ammunition, and food made from the jungle pigs (including smoked sausage, thick-cut smoked bacon, barbecued ribs, pulled-pork, all sorts of ham dishes, etc. Let the hunt begin!
  19. So, I have this priestess character who's pretty useless in combat on her own, but is good for support, and she goes around helping settle disputes, arbitrate deals, and dish out divine punishment. She's not really a "famous" person, more or less a ghost that deals with issues she comes along, but can be contacted when needed... Character sheet link at the bottom. I'm looking for someone to RP with but I don't really have any specific plans yet. Maybe just a random encounter while she's doing her job? Maybe found along the road? Or perhaps she's a damsel in distress, awaiting a knight to save her from brigands? I dunno. Just looking for 1 or 2 people tops to do my first thread with. Character Sheet:
  20. The cursed sword, Muramasa. The Immortal Ending. Forged several hundred years ago on a world far away from Valucre, the swords of the infamous smith Sengo Muramasa carry a bloodstained legacy. Each blade possesses an edge of unparalleled sharpness capable of mortally wounding even those who would otherwise be considered "immortal". Yet these peerless blades come with a price, as they all serve as a reflection of Muramasa’s dementia and his obsessive pursuit of the sharpest blade. As a result, the “soul” of each sword bears an unquenchable thirst for blood that spurs it’s wielder on to commit greater acts of violence each time it is used. The swordsman is inevitably driven mad by the cursed blade, until it can be sated by nothing less than taking the swordsman’s own life. Only swordsmen with the most immovable of hearts and unfettered minds could possibly wield a Muramasa blade without giving in to its bloodlust. One such swordsman was the famous Yagyu Jubei Mitsuyoshi, who wielded Muramasa’s final blade against the immortal Amakusa Shiro Tokisada. It was the discipline of Jubei’s art, Yagyu Shinkage-ryu, that allowed him to wield the cursed sword without becoming a monster himself. Today, in a far future and an even further world away, the swordsman monk Tenkai Matsumoto follows in the footsteps of the Yagyu swordsman who came before him, wielding his own Muramasa to cut down those unjust souls who have for too long enjoyed freedom from the fear of death. But now, it would seem even the "Immortal Ending" is has its limits. Faced with a foe whose immortality stood beyond the blade's ability to reach it, Tenkai has learned of how little he truly understood of his longtime personal weapon. Intent on breaking through both his limits and that of Muramasa, the swordsman sets out on a warrior's pilgrimage across the many lands of Valucre, facing other cursed swords in hopes that he may find his answers in the heart of battle. OOC: This may be a little bit in advance (since the actual plot hook that triggers this quest has not yet happened) but I wanted to put out an interest check regarding my quest to make Tenkai's sword Muramasa a canon weapon on Valucre. I'll probably update the blurb above once the actual event happens (and also edit that artwork shown above, since its still slightly unfinished and outdated). The idea I had was based off of something I've thought of for a good while. I always liked the idea of having Tenkai go around fighting evil swordsmen or people cursed with evil/cursed/demonic blades and defeating them, which by extension would defeat their blades and gradually unlock some sort of "awakening" in his sword. The specifics of what exactly happens to it are still being hammered out but I wanted this interest check because as much as I could just write out a bunch of different stories and encounters detailing this, RPing with myself would be incredibly boring. So I wanted to see if anyone wanted to create characters for something like this. A few ideas I had were like... - An innocent swordsman who by some bad luck came into possession of a demonic sword that made him into a murderer - Career assassins/killers for higher making use of other well-storied cursed blades - Otherwise noble warriors that are in possession of exceedingly dangerous swords that they themselves do not understand the consequences of wielding - Voracious sword collectors who collect cursed weaponry purely for self indulgence and obsession - Entire groups/organizations of swordsmen or sword thieves, usually with some sort of common theme between them - Anything involving otherwise famous weapons either originating on or somehow finding their way to Valucre - Finally, something as heavy as facing another completely different Muramasa, or even a Masamune sword These are just some small ideas but I'm open to to other suggestions as I see who's interested in helping out my story with some sword-related roleplay fun.
  21. I was very much inspired by the alternative setting created by @supernal (Oakpeak - A Western) that I made a whole character for it. Come at me if you wanna get all up in the American Frontier.
  22. 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?
  23. Play music for full affect "I've always tried to control things / but in the end that's what controls me." -NF Renovatio Daily Post Written by Dr. Septimus Ne'loz, PhDs of Physics and Philosophy What happens when a god dies? Does the Universe just carry on, none the wiser do the disruption of balance? Let me ask you another question if those are too theoretical. Has sentient life ever existed prior to a god? A faith or belief in some higher being? No, there is always something. So what then happens if you can prove the existence of that superior being and then kill it. Remove its existence from, well, existence. Not seal or trap. Utterly and completely annihilate it. I'll tell you what happens. The Universe corrects itself. Everything has a balance. Entities that oppose and, yet, compliment. Good and evil. Courage and fear. Men and women. Hot and cold. High and low. Heaven and Hell. You cannot have one without the other. Like a Hydra, if you kill one head, more grow back in its place. Same goes for the Universe's attitude of uniformity. To the extent that the Avylon Provincial University has been able to prove, at least. Because of this, my colleagues and I, though we can only guess, suspect disastrous consequences to befall Renovatio in the coming days. Though my support and prayers go with the Grand Kommadant, I can only hope that she knows what she's doing. Renovatio Daily Post Written by Dr. Septimus Ne'loz, PhDs of Physics and Philosophy A new land has fallen from the sky like the tears of a dying god. We don't know exactly why it has come, though we suspect it to be the result of a god perishing. Again, which god is unknown; we can only guess. However the best mages and scholars in Renovatio have all examined the island at a distant to try to determine something about it. Anything. But there is only a powerful surge of divine and demonic energy radiating from it. Some claim to have sensed traces of human energy, but the flicker was so faint it could have just been an error in the machines or the mage's focus. We risk not venturing upon the land for fear of awakening that which should remain dormant. The flailing government in Nu Martyr, however, in what I can only guess is an attempt to recover their lost honor from the death of their PRIME, is sending a party up there to gather information. We pray for their safe return and that it is nothing but a remnant of ancient times. OOC Time! I imagine that right now, the people reading this are in two groups: (1) Alright, this sounds pretty interesting. (2) Wtf is even going on Okay lol so in order to understand what I'm talking about, you have to at least skim this Lore Article: Garden of Nede. Nede is a floating landmass just south of Nehalen (that's in Renovatio, I have a map and everything in the lore article) which has just dropped as of yesterday both IC and OOC. What that means is that it's virgin land for anyone and everyone who wants to try their hand in making their mark in Renovatio. For those of you who are either new to Valucre and are thus unsure about what's going on or just don't really keep up with things in Renovatio, the board leader @Aleksei has ordered a total and unequivocal killing of all Renovatio's god and goddesses. While there may or may not be further consequences from these deaths, the first to really show itself is Nede. If you're wondering what "Nu Martyr" is cause I mentioned it in the above article, it's a province in Nehalen that was attacked by some bitch necromancer that hasn't been around for a while. I'm here to tell you about the opportunities open for you! -:- -:- -:- How to Start in Nede In Nede, there are 4 Demon Lord Towers and 1 Demon King Tower. For now, let's forget about the Demon King Tower because that'll come back around once the Demon Lord Towers are situated. For the Demon Lord Towers, you have 2 options if you'd like to take one (btw having one gives you absolute control over that territory! Even overcomes Artifacts and Relics. Again, read the lore article, super important!). Keep in mind that "taking over" a Demon Lord Tower can be done to save those within the jurisdiction (maybe there are mortals there!) and can be done with any character. You can: A) Be a Demon Lord already in place meaning that you've ruled for hundreds of thousands of years after the fall of the previous era gods died. If you chose this option, you're likely to also have an entourage if not a city of lower Demons that follow your command. What they look like and act, is up to you. Demon-kind can vary. B) Use an already existing Valucre character to overthrow the current Demon Lord and take control of the tower. For good or for bad. With technology or without. Up to you. C) Be a rebel force within a territory. Similar to option A, in that you were already in Nede, but just not ruling. Please note that Demon Towers cannot be destroyed, only controlled. No player can be in charge of more than 1 tower for the moment. This means that parties need to focus on one section. I made it only 4 Towers so that it creates a competitive environment. 1 Player controlling all 4 is hella lame. There's a method to challenging a Player's hold on a Demon Lord Tower, but those are rules for after we get things kick started. If more than one player want the same Demon Lord Tower, we'll use one of the RNG methods + a Dungeon crawl to determine who wins it! Note that the rules will observe artifacts, relics, and canon weapons to give advantages for parties that have obtained those. If no one challenges your claim in the first few days of this going up, you'll be able to establish you claim with a lore article of your Demon City or whatever you plan for it to be like. Keep in mind that Nede is technology free from the start. Until people bring in technology, it doesn't have any beyond Medieval times. Magic is over abundant, at least twice that of the rest of Valucre (until you leave the island). This makes the max capacity of magic at, like, skyscraper destroying level. It's gonna be nuts. Then we have the Demon Seconds, which are essentially branch families or Generals within the main "family" that work under the Demon Lords after swearing fealty to the Tower and it's Lord. Once the Lord is dead, the fealty is voided. The type of fealty, whether magic or otherwise, depends on the Demon Lord. Where do I sign up to be a Demon Lord and have my own Demon City? Demon Lord Candidates Section 1: Ankou Lethe Section 2: @MichaelTheLightBringer ??? maybe lol Section 3: Lilith Reiter, VCF Section 4: Gamboor Demon Second Candidates: Section 1: Kalleth Tzreera Section 2: Section 3: Section 4: Tarsus Hain Note: I absolutely encourage new players to give this a shot. While I like to joke around sometimes that the reason I was able to make Taen and Ursa Madeum so popular back when I was in charge of them was because I have the Midas Touch (lmfao) but it's really because of new and old players showing interest and jumping in the story to make their own mark in the territories If you have faith in me and my story telling, I'll make sure that you are taken on one hell of a ride and help you enjoy Valucre to the fullest! I can only tell my best stories when there are people to enjoy it with me. So let's fuck some shit up! On that note, I'm also interested in players interested in joining the Nede Development Team. You'd essentially be helping me solidify and draft lore, plan stories/ events, create threads in the area, etc. So if you're interested, lemme know! Preferably players that don't have strong ties to other areas of Valucre. Give me, I mean Nede, alllllllll your attention <333 Welcome, to the bloodiest place in Valucre. May the odds be ever in your favor. The Garden of Nede War | Politics | Strategy | Massacre | Adventure | Horror *Current Opportunities open through August 16th
  24. "I will show you how the mighty fall." ☾ The Grand Kommadant of Nehalen has begun the process of removing the mighty Gods of her land. The balance between these Gods of the people of Nehalen is being disrupted by the Kommadant's blasphemous actions. By erecting a nullifier in the form of an invisible veil, Primera begins the process of pushing these powerful beings back into their own world, sundering them from the land they have called home for eons. This has sent the Gods into a frenzy, their powers are being siphoned from them the more they fight against the push, weakening them immensely, and their minds have begun to dwindle into psychosis. Once revered and fondly feared, the Gods are now looked upon as a disease in the eyes of the Grand Kommadant's followers who believe the time of Man has finally come. ☽ Welcome! I'm glad you all could drop on by to my little event I've got here. Things are pretty straight forward around these parts: Nehalen (formerly Renovatio) is going through some changes and this event will be the spark to said changes. I'm asking you all to affect my lore by joining the threads offered to kill a God and properly canonize them. The Gods are scattered across Nehalen and I will provide you those locations. Kill a God, become a hero (or villian)! Q&A: How many pages do the threads need to be? I am looking for at least two pages. Can always be more but can't be less! How many Gods can I kill? As many as you want but you can only go after one at a time. Can I do this alone? Absolutely! If you want to solo kill a God, I see no issue with that. Do I need to use a specific character? No. You can use whatever character you want but I do expect some sort of fairness from you all. Please keep to mild powers associated with the forum. Do I need to use a specific combat system? No. I am allowing everyone to go kill crazy with this but, again, I do expect some sort of fairness from you all. Please realize this isn't supposed to be easy; I expect damage not only to the area(s) you are fighting the Gods in but also damage to your character. Can I contain a God? Go right ahead! Contain it however you want, doing whatever you want, just keep in mind that it is a lesser, weaker version and it will be that way forever due to my character cutting said God's will off. Can I absorb the spirit/essence of the God? Of course! Do I need to use a storyteller? If you feel it is necessary, go right ahead! I don't know how to start? No worries! I will be creating prompts for all the Gods that need to be killed and you can follow that prompt however you wish. Just post in the thread and have fun. How long do I have once I start? I would appreciate 1 post per 3 days. This will keep the thread going with hopes it'll be finished at an appropriate time. If I see a thread has stalled for more than two weeks, I will assume that God is up for grabs again. If you need more time, reach out to me! I understand how life can be a bit hectic. I'm done, now what? Tag me in your summary for the thread with opportunities (example: killed the God, ended up destroying a city/village/town, how will this affect the area? Was something unleashed during this? etc.) for future role-players. I need some extra help! Never hesitate to reach out to me. I am constantly available on Discord, making it the quickest way to get answers. No Discord? That's okay, just send me a pm or tag me in the OOC for this event. How long is this event? Until all the Gods are killed off or just enough of them are killed.

  25. Figured I might as well ask around! I wanted to sort of fish for anyone who needs someone new in their character's stories. Whether it be a guide/mentor, a rival, a friend, or even an all-out villain. Really I'd just like to get some creativity flowing on my end, and I'd love to help anyone out with the stories they're writing in the process. I do have an existing character made, but of course I can write up something different as well. Whether it's a group, 1 on 1, action, horror, a little slice of life or philosophical discussion, it doesn't matter to me, just would like to get something going. If anyone has any ideas they wanna pursue, just lemme know!
