  1. Hi guys! Another interest check from me... again. Damn I hope I don't get too flooded with too many storied than I can track. 😅 Anyway, I'm delving into alternative this time and I'm wondering if anyone would be interested to RP this with me. I tried doing this way back when I first discovered Valucre. However I guess I was too naive and enthusiastic. The genre was probably too out of the way and no one even replied my interest check (I think... it was a long time ago). ATTENTION! IC thread and OOC thread has been put up. For more information, please refer to the links below. The setting I would like to use would be from a video game called 'The Division'. For those who never heard of it or never played the game, it's basically set in a modern post-apocalyptic United States where a bio-engineered super-bug was let loose upon society and starts killing people left, right, centre without a cure in sight. This has led to widespread disaster, the crumbling of the government and sees basic services cut off from the populace. As a last ditch effort, the POTUS has activated waves of deeply embedded sleeper agents within society. These agents are part of the Strategic Homeland Division (SHD). These men and women are given executive authority to use ANY MEANS NECESSARY to ensure continuity of government and to stop society from falling apart. They are armed with military weapons and high-tech gadgets and gizmos to help fight anyone who tries to resist their efforts to rebuild. The setting would start in Brooklyn but would switch over to Manhattan where the remnants of the Joint Task Force (A coalition of National Guard, police and emergency services) are struggling to retain control from rioters, criminals and hostile organizations. So that's a quick summary. I'm pretty sure most of you would not have RP-ed in such a setting before and if anyone wants to join me, I do not mind playing the role of both character and story-teller at the same time since I would be more familiar with the lore at most. I'm looking for anyone who would be willing to try RP-ing in a different setting. No one will be pressured to continue if they lose interest. If this interest check gains traction, I may include more 'Division' lore so that it'll be easier for those unfamiliar with the game & setting to start. 🙂
  2. Esteemed academy administrator Lady Bontavia seeks someone to convince her horrid nephew to repay a substantial 'business' loan by any means... Genre: Modern/Fantasy Location: Mageside City Ideal Candidates: Low-level magic users looking for clout with the academy tenure. Rewards: The Lady has amicably agreed to allow the successful party to keep 50% of all recovered funds. Low-level mage participants will be rewarded with free training primarily in illusion and alteration magic. You’ll learn to cast an animate spell which will allow the caster to bind wayward spirits to nearby objects and even themselves for a short time, generously increasing magical protection and/or power. If your character has no interest in magical training, professional high-level enchantment of a single piece armor or a weapon of your choice is an option. Bonus, if you're able to recover ALL of Bontavia’s funds and you realize her nephew’s true fate, participants will receive a small amount of a rare mixture of gold powder and incense which is known to attract legendary Kelpie (horse-like flesh eating water spirits). It also doubles as a powerful yet pleasant glittery perfume.
  3. The Dogs of War are about to mobilize into a mighty mission to make Terrenus a safer place. They intend on venturing out into Terrenus in the hopes of locating cursed objects so they can retrieve, bring them back to Illyana Uldwar who will in turn attempt to either purify the artifact or destroy it if purification is not possible. What artifacts are they going after?: The Dogs of War will be going after several artifacts, splitting themselves into three teams so they can cover more ground and obtain multiple cursed artifacts. These teams go as such. 1. Team Longsword: Rumors are flying that the vigilante group known as Justice is hiring someone with the ability to raise the dead under their will. Concerned, the Dogs of War intend on investigating these claims, and are traveling to a village known as Carrot Hill to gather information. [Sir Ultin, Sir Gamesly, Sir Lucario and Sir Yorefield will be participating in this quest. They will be joined by four squires, four wolfhounds and one scribe to record the journey.] Team Battle Axe (official artifact challenge): The Rod of Peter the Dark is a dangerous item that can cause much suffering to those who wield it. The Knights intend on claiming it for themselves so they can make certain it can never cause harm again. [Sir Roderick Julian, Sir Henry Julian and Sir Daymare will be taking part of this quest. They will be joined by three squires, three wolfhounds and a scribe to record the journey.] Team Halberd: In the far reaches of Norkotia, it is rumored a dangerous Idol of a bygone age resides. This item, if claimed by the wrong hands, could cause untold devastation to the world. The Knights now hunt for this idol, determined to destroy it entirely. [Sir Redford, Sir Cumic and Sir Kingson will be partaking in this quest. They will be joined by three squires, three wolfhounds and a scribe to record their journey.] All three of these teams will be in separate threads that you are welcome to join either as helpful, Neutral or even antagonists of the quest. Post your interest here if you have any and we'll see what we can make happen. More details to come soon.
  4. 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)
  5. 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. (thanks for the support!)
  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. 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.”
  8. Emperor Titus Demetrius, ruler of the Veluriyam Empire, has passed away from a mysterious disease. His funeral is held two weeks later, under the shadow of the growing uncertainty about the empire's future. Veluriyam is young, Princess Teresa is missing, the Empress and her sons are a mystery, and Ursa Madeum is still recovering from the catastrophe in Misral. The emperor's death is an both ending and a beginning - though the beginning of what, exactly, no one seems to know. Perhaps the memorial, a gathering of important names and faces, will reveal more. Titus' funeral thread will take place June 1 in-character, in the city of Lunaris, Taen. We'll be working by this in-character timeline: May 19 - Titus dies. Rozharon leaves Veluriyam to search for Teresa. May 28 - Volcano elemental from Mt. Egon razes Misral, destroys Tankred estate June 1 - Titus funeral June 5? - Ursa Madeum Noble House Meeting (or whenever supernal decides the new year will be) The memorial will be a private event. Those invited include: Veluriyam government and military officials, Friends and allies of Titus and the Empire Members of the Allied Nations of Terrenus The Ursa Madeum nobility As I've mentioned before, this will be a relatively short thread as I'd like to move on to the Ursa Madeum noble house meeting as soon as possible. Brevity is encouraged, but not required. The thread will consist of two parts: Eulogies If there are at least a few players who wish to have their characters give eulogies for Titus, these will be posted immediately after the thread begins. After the eulogy round (if there are enough interested for one to exist) I'll fast-track the thread to after the burial. Post-funeral interactions Ideally, this thread will be an opportunity for notable individuals across Veluriyam, Terrenus (and beyond) to gather, offer condolences/chat/discuss alliances with the widowed Empress Rozharon Paralios and her sons, Pallas and Lenore. Maybe also gossip a bit with your peers about the empire's future, speculate that it was murder and that the twins weren't Titus' sons, make plans to seize control of the throne, consider courting the angel lady in hopes of becoming the emperor etc. etc. Fun stuff. Drink some tea. Spill some tea. The post-funeral interactions will have no set ending, though I'll probably close the thread a week or so after this. Do know that if you plan on making a character cause chaos or something similar, there will be IC consequences. If you're planning on joining, reply below with: The character/s you'll be using in this thread Whether or not your character would/would not be delivering a eulogy Feel free to PM me through Valucre or Discord if you want to plot any interactions. I might encourage some chaos as long as you run it through me before and it doesn't derail the thread.

  9. It's that time of year again! Port Caelum is hosting its annual Spring Festival to attract visitors from all over Valucre. Finally, spring is among us and the Regent of Port Caelum is hosting a flower viewing festival in celebration. Come walk the gardens of her estate, taste sweet delicacies inspired by the variety of blooms, and enjoy sweet wines and yokai sake. Political figures across each continent received personal invitations to attend the event. In addition, word was sent in mass to the citizens of Valucre that held no title to speak of. It is a casual event to include fireworks, tea ceremonies, and other localized events within the port. There will also be vendor stands outside the Lady’s estate where you can buy demonic trinkets and souvenirs. Join the festivities to celebrate the arrival of the new season. See the regent in person and the yokai in her care. Enjoy the atmosphere and treats that will be offered for free. Rules: - + This event will be hosted in one thread for the most part. Other threads can be created for the event, but please make sure to include [Hanami] after the title and tag me in the first post so I can follow along. - + Please adhere to posting order within your group. Also, be sure to communicate with other role players to make sure that you can join groups that are already interacting to find a good time to step in. - + As per usual, do not engage in violence without permission from other users. - + If you are planning to up-end my event, talk to me first. Depending on purpose and plot points, we may reach an agreement. Although keep in mind there will be several beings at this event that allied and will be hard to overcome if they ban together. Character deaths aren’t permitted without consent as well. - + Most importantly, have fun. The thread will be posted on Saturday, May 4th. Look forward to playing with all of you!
  10. Everything was going well, until the mountain exploded, and fire rained down upon the island... In an attempt at expanding House Uldwar's economic power, Mia Uldwar has inadvertently angered Mt. Ergon, and all of Misral* is paying for it. Do what you can to save the island, or else the casualties will reach the tens of thousands! This event is open to the public, split into three major areas to choose from for you the writer to take part in. 1. Mia Uldwar and her forces are engaged with a life and death battle against the spirit of the Mt. Ergon itself, who is angered at their attempts to cap the mountain in order to take advantage of its abundant magic. Join her in this epic battle and stop the fire Elemental before it consumes the entire island in its wrath.** 2. Below the mountain, the jungles of Misral are burning, causing a massive stampede of wild animals and native Bugbears. You must do your part in helping to get the chaos under control, fighting the fires before the jungles are completely destroyed. 3. Port Mars is on fire! Help to extinguish the flames before the entire city is destroyed! Where will you choose to place your character? How will you help or even hinder the efforts of saving the island of Misral? Place your interest here with your character and which spot you wish to be part of in the story. Roster list and positioning coming soon.
  11. “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!
  12. So the thing with this thread is there are no rules (and relatively no post order) really but keep it romance-free and PG. You jump in and create a starter or interact with someone already in the story (keep in mind responses to this should be more fast-paced as it's just something for fun. The length of your responses can be your preference). The only catch is you must use a character that is from a video game (like Legend of Zelda, for ex) or from an animated show. If it's a character that's more unknown, somewhere within your message put some information about them. The theme of this random RP is gathered from some inspiration I got recently about similar situations I've seen in stories. The genre is more leaning toward comedy as well as suspense/mystery. Any powers they had previously would be gone, leaving them basically powerless in this strange world. They would not remember their original lives but have new lives currently in this world. Perhaps they are in college, or they work a job, or they're a thug running through the streets--- whatever it is they do daily. The story takes place in a modern-like city where people wake up in a foreign, or maybe not so foreign land. What the characters don't know, is that everything around them is not truly what it appears. The longer they spend their time there, the more that some of them might to feel "off" or visibly notice something unusual going on. Go ahead and leave which character you claim below. And head to this thread to post a starter:
  13. 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:
  14. @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.
  15. I'm looking to start roleplaying again. Unfortunately, because I am so out of practice - I'm sticking to one character, my Erotisch. She was active here on Valucre (and Gaia several years ago), but, in my waiting for my partner to post, the city she was in was completely destroyed and removed from Valucre all together. (I'm not quite sure of the lore of this change, but.. I am going with that!) Because Ero is so very dear to me, and a part of me and my growth as an individual, I'd like to say she survived the destruction. I'm trying to figure out where I can place her, where she wouldn't seem too out of sorts, but not to far from where Patia was. If you're interested, please PM me and let me know if you have any questions/suggestions. Thanks for the interest!
  16. Many of us probably don’t like being hunted down. However, sadly that’s exactly what’s happening here. you and a band of others have come together to live free. To be free. However you are all either Anomalous in other words, you’ve broken the world in a fundamental manner, and this shouldn’t Exist. Or you own something that does, which means you are to be Interrogated, tortured, investagated, and incinerated. its either run and die fighting to be free, or end up in a cell to be a Expirament. You and your comparaits done have a chance against the superior forces hunting you down by yourselves but with each other maybe his rmaybe you can stay away. GRSA: they move like a hive despite being human, their weapons are dangerous to all of you, even those who are invulnerable. You are the pest they are the exterminator . Priority: Threat Level Maximum. Task force 9: Hunters in the night if it breaks reality, Kill it. They have no mercy, you will be terminated on the spot, or if they capture you, burned alive. The Soceity is the Broken man: you don’t belong, you will be caputured and locked away for your own good. You can’t hurt and you can’t be Hurt. The Cult of Zarthrax: Order is madness. You will be enslaved to free this world if it’s rules. Let only that which shouldn’t Be! Alpha Corp: theyre the top of the buisness world, and you? Your a niche product to sell. Prepare to become a Slave to corporate greed. investigation Buero: threat level Low. huh, that’s odd, it rained frogs in Carolina, time to check that out. they show up to see what’s wrong, getting found out by then usually results in one of the other factions finding out and taking over. You better be Benign to get caught by them. intergarion, Amnesia, observation and release.
  17. After the war for Nu Martyr, Thurgood and Aveline Singlance, the heads of House Singlance (a major Ursa Madeum noble house) dove right back into constructing their manor with renewed vigor. Now that it's done, they're throwing a party to celebrate, and announce the official adoption of Vivian and Nadia, two radar foxes (a sapient species). They've sent invitations to all the other noble houses, including House Uldwar, since Luis turned Oscar into a tree, but true to their egalitarian ideals, it will be open to anybody and everybody, and will be a rather casual affair. Here, I'm feeling out how much interest y'all (the users of Valucre) would have for roleplaying in a shindig like this. Apparently a lot: it's happening here:
  18. Hello, Valucre! I had this wacky idea just now that came to me after gallivanting on what I've since brought forth as a fellow writing resource for fellow Valucreans. The idea is about getting an idea of what to write about. As some of you may know, I tend to write with music and/or ambience in my ears. More often than not, I find myself quite unable to write without something coming out of my speakers. Well, my idea surely does involve music and ambience when it comes to writing and roleplaying, so here we go: https://tabletopaudio.com/ That link will take you to a site which offers quite an extensive list of music and ambience tracks focusing on atmospheric settings, like dungeons, forests and cities, to immerse oneself in a given activity. In our case, that's roleplay. I propose this as a general writing resource for those among us who like to and are able to write with noise, because not everyone is that person and what works for me may not work for you. That being said, the Water Cooler idea here is that you pick a track from the site and make a roleplay out of it. You can either have a setting in mind and select the appropriate track or the other way around. Once selected, pop a notice in this thread of what the track is and a link to the IC thread, if for no other reason than reference purposes. Then, get to roleplaying! Tell us how you got on and share your experience! If you are like me and you listen to stuff when you write, then you're all set. If you've never tried it before, give it a go! We're all different so we write in different real life atmospheres so it may not be your thing. However, even if you can't write with noise in your ears, you can still find a track's setting, read its synopsis and, if it appeals to you, well there's an idea for a new roleplay! Or go crazy and pick a track/setting at random. An example of all this nonsense is the first track on the top row from the left called "Waterkeep". The track's image shows a beautiful castle described as "the fabled jeweled city of the north, a hub for trade, commerce and culture". So, there's your setting, all you have to do is make a roleplay out of it—listen to the track as you write or don't! If this idea gets enough attention, then later I could even make a game/challenge out of it, assigning a track/setting randomly to individuals/pairs/groups for them to only then make a roleplay out of it. So what do you all think? (Rest assured that I will edit this OP as my awfully verbose self just can't seem to properly translate my ideas half of the time. By all means, you won't insult or embarrass me by replying to the thread with advice on how to better articulate this idea and clean up the OP. In fact, I might just buy you a drink for it, pardner.) (Also, did I post on the right board..?) THANKS MISTER
  19. I am beginning a series of events that will lead one of my characters to Terrenus, and would like to make the firing pin. To be blunt and short, I'm looking for 1-3 people to have a fight with Dan on behalf of the Gaian church, attempting to capture him. I could do it myself with npcs, but come on. That's just no fun. It will be held in Umbra, killing and maiming are not allowed on either side. The combat will be narrative driven, because bleh dice rolls. Weapons are allowed, and encouraged. For context, the first thing Dan did when he arrived in Valucre was accept a job to slip into Biazo Abbey and take something from Archbishop Twizzen. Well, he did. In fact, he robbed the man blind. And proceeded to beat the hell out of the clergymen when one of his partners tripped an alarm. He was detained once by a bounty hunter, using a tactic we don't talk about and was pure luck anyway, and put into a prison, where he promptly escaped after 3 days. He hasn't returned to Terrenus since then, save only once. Despite being a thief boy, there will be no risk of having your gear stolen by Dan should he win. ...Unless you make him really really really really really want it. ?

Confirmed Passengers: Leo Ardís Valkyrja Minerva Grovel Imalia Gladstone ______________ OOC: So this interest check is mainly targeted towards new members to Valucre (Welcome by the way! 🤗) who are starting off with their first character or for members who wants to create a character to RP in Genesaris but have no idea where to start. This is also a first for me because my plan is to help gather all of you newcomers to RP together and intro you guys to how threads work, posting orders, character interactions and so on. I'm not an expert myself, but I do believe practice makes perfect and we can all learn from each other! Anyway, it's all in good fun! 🙂 So I'll be creating a character sheet for Captain Allen and my posts will mainly be centered around him and also moving the entire plot as the ship travels from place to place. For example, Captain Allen may announce that it is time for meal breaks and everyone should head to the dining area. This helps to move the scene along and everyone else in the thread can continue interacting each other while moving towards and RPing in that new scene. I might cap the number of RPers to 6 (including me) so that we can work out the posting order and everyone can get to know each other and communicate better without everything being too messy. I intend for this thread to be a short one, starting at Union city and ending at one of the other Megacities with stopovers at smaller cities/towns. At the end of the trip, once RPers have decided they have a better idea of how RP works, their characters can "disembark" and exit the story altogether. If there is enough interest, I may create another interest check to bring in "new passengers" and continue the journey from the last port of call. Of course, not everything will go smoothly and I don't intend for the characters to just spend the entire journey lounging around and just talking to one another. Incidents will happen, and it will be up to Captain Allen and the budding adventurers to save the day! Let me know what you guys think or if you are interested. Cheers, and DFTBA! Vetanoob
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. It may be nearly over for some of you in certain parts of the world, but for me it is just beginning. Yes, it is April Fool's Day, when all sorts of utter nonsense goes on and everyone tries desperately to be funny or to fool people. And well, I was thinking, perhaps this would be a fine opportunity to once again showcase my obnoxious, trolling wizard: The Cursor. Additional information here. What exactly am I proposing? Simple. In honor of today, if any of you want some randomness thrown into your thread, any thread anywhere at all, I will have the Cursor show up and zap your characters. I'll even zap your villains and NPCs if you want. So, if anyone is interested in pranking their characters, and/or maybe somebody else's characters too, just reply here with a link to your thread and let me know which characters I'm okay to Curse. The list of available effects is on the Cursor's profile, but I'll share it here again anyway: Alternatively, I can use @amenities's Curse List as well, though I prefer to use my own. Alright people, let's make April Fools out of characters, damn it!
  24. Setting: The island of Corinth, Andelusia City, Near the Beginning of Spring, two days after the death of Amelia Silverheart. Genre: Mystery, Horror Objective: To investigate the strange killing of Amelia Silverheart and discover the culprit of the crime. Danger Level: (Medium) Something had scared the victim so terribly that their heart gave out from fright. If the perpetrator is still in the area, then whoever is looking into the death may themselves be in danger. Reward: A monetary reward of a modest sum as well as political favor of small proportions for anyone who has any information that leads to solving the peculiar case of the death of Amelia Silverheart. Preferred Story Arc: The preferred Story Arc for this particular thread is for the various writers involved to be part of the investigation regarding the death of Amelia Silverheart. During this time, three people of interest are named that may have more information about the death or even responsibility for it. From a descending order there is Elsera Elludoria, elven diplomat from the Terran Empire of Odin Haze, come to Ursa Madeum to establish an embassy within the city. Then there is the medicine woman name Olga Earthblood, a witch who had recently moved from the wilds into the city to sell special herbs and potions to those looking to enhance their lives through magic. Finally there is the old knight Sir Darrell Bodinger, a veteran of the war for Ursa Madeum, who spends his days drinking at the local taverns. Through deductive reasoning and searching for clues, the writers will figure out which of the three people are in fact responsible for the death of Amelia Silverheart. Once that is done, they will be rewarded and sent on their way, all the while the true killer is revealed, and the mystery is truly solved to the audience instead of the characters themselves. What roles am I looking for?: Characters more suited to interaction than combat, preferrably. This is going to be more of a whodunit instead of a fight, so I'm definitely looking for those who chose charisma as their main Stat. Expectations: Good communication, cooperation and civility amongst the writers who are willing to join. It certainly won't be a very slow thread but I also don't want people bugging each other for posts, either. Aiming for at the very least two pages Created Opportunities: With the killer gone, the people of Andelusia can feel safe again, but there are still questions left unanswered. The greatest and most perplexing of all being, how does the gnarled old tree near the palace fit into the mystery itself?
  25. 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:
