  1. Updates House Singlance, despite all common sense and reason, have made an ally in House Senaria! House Singlance actually has territory, thanks well, entirely to House Senaria. During oil exploration, Thurgood found the basis of a major industry. What does this mean? House Singlance now has plans for the future they're starting to carry out! What are these? A hydroelectric dam, to power their new industry A concrete production and mixing facility to provide the main material for the dam A massive bauxite mining operation, which leads to: A massive aluminum mill, to provide at least some raw materials for A munitions factory based on vulcanium propulsion technology This does not mean that their plans for modernizing infrastructure, technology, and education are stopping, or even pausing for a second, these industries are in fact part of it. But, if you're reading this, you don't care about any of that at face value, I know what you really care about: What does this mean for you? This means House Singlance will be expanding their "net" for people. Yes, this means they're still looking for criminals, educators, scientists, inventors, and engineers, but they're also looking for people with business skills and/or connections, military types, and really most anybody at this point, since these projects and industries will require a lot of general labor What if you're aiming higher than just being a part of the general populace? House Singlance, as mentioned previously, only has TWO MEMBERS (soon to be four, but still), and is thus looking to expand in sooner than the sixteen to eighteen years it takes to raise a newborn to adulthood. There are two main ways to be a part of House Singlance: Adoption: this is mainly for characters that really do not currently have a real family or are really dissatisfied with their own. I mean, don't kid ourselves, there's plenty of orphan (or in a situation that makes one practically so) player-characters around Valucre. Well, this gives that character a home, a place in Valucre, a reasonably bright future, and a last name that one, in time, may even be at least a little bit proud of. Service: this is mainly for characters that do currently have a family and name that they do not want to leave, but still want to be a major noble in Ursa Madeum. This does not need to be the type of typical service of nobility that the more "proper" houses will subject one to, but applicants ideally should have some skill set that benefits the house. Just remember, House Singlance is not the typical noble house by any means; Thurgood and Aveline despise the "formality" of other noble houses, and seek to redefine what it means to be a noble. One of those ways is staying quite casual, and more importantly, flexible. These positions aren't just handed out though, they need to be earned. As a player, this is through simply roleplaying. As a character, this is through sustained interaction with Thurgood and/or Aveline, gaining their approval, then pledging absolute loyalty first to the Veluriyam Empire, and second to House Singlance. Two caveats though: The general populous of Ursa Madeum still hate them, but their hatred has grown less active through general apathy. Joining or working for House Singlance is still social and policical suicide, at least within Ursa Madeum. NOBODY with any known ties to House Uldwar will even be considered. Characters interested can speak with Thurgood or Aveline Singlance, and at least one of them is at the Mil Dot Lunaris lately, (if not at the Reverie ball, or in the "field"). The message can either get to a character by either rumor, or officially in either a political circle, a chosen source of news (not a main story though), or the criminal underworld (depending on which side you're responding to). Players interested can post below and/or send me a PM (but title it appropriately).
  2. I’m craving for some storywriting that has nothing to do with canon (or too trivial to be canon), starts with a lighthearted adventure, has no posting order, and no particular plot planned or anyone driving the story. No restrictions on character, or who introduces NPCs or challenges. Just a simple one step, one post at a time in a continue-the-story writing, and see where it goes. I’m not looking for chat RP though, so at least a paragraph or two, or longer. Really depends on what you want to write in your post! No particular posting speed, but I’m not a super fast writer, depending on how long the posts are, I can take anywhere from 2 days to a week to reply. But anyone can post anytime though, so you don’t have to wait for me! No rules meaning nothing is disallowed. You can have a monster that shows up and blows up the planet, and I can have a god that resurrects everyone, if you and I so wanted during our turns. Not that it’s what I’m going for, but just saying that it can happen. There’s no storyteller, no one to moderate anything written. Lol I know it’s a strange interest check, but anyone wants to join me for this? It’s non-canon for sure, we can use Alternative or any readymade lore areas on Val. Looking for a small group of 2-6 people so that things don’t grow too crazy lol.
  3. Try-outs for Bad Guy Infamy mysterious and powerful criminal syndicate is hosting a try-outs of sorts; a trial mission into the land of Taen for the chance to be inducted into this immaculate trade. Taen, too peaceful? Nonsense! Or at least, that’s what someone might have said 2 years ago. Today though, there is a certain constituent of the criminal class who searches out people and places like this. Someone who is too complacent, too inactive or inattentive, can get their whole world shaken up like a snowglobe! Even some who keep their fingers wrapped tight around their wallets can find themselves shaken up and broke any day. Mortimer's Research Laboratory of Extradimensional Matters and Magical-Affected Physics in the land of Taen fell under a certain someone’s scrutiny when it accepted the yolk of much of Taen’s main city, Lunaris’s scientific innovation. Furthermore, Mortimer’s established itself as the city’s lead apothecary. His advances in medicine and the distribution of pharmaceuticals has attracted the attention of a doctor named Theodore Alexander Roxyer-Rollins Amantis. He has come with four associates, representatives from a pharmaceutical firm called Catalyst Medicinal Corp. in search of employment at Mortimer’s and a contract between Mortimer’s and Catalyst. Good fortune willing, Amantis and the Catalyst representatives hope to establish a pharmacy supplied exclusively with Catalyst medicine. @amenities and @-Lilium- pose as pharmaceutical representatives from Catalyst while Amantis talks them up to Mortimer. What Do I Want? (any of the below) 1-2 Players: Pretend to be pharmaceutical interns with high ranking members of the criminal syndicate and scope out other pharmacies in Taen, then convince them to sell Catalyst medicine; secure permits from Taen quality control centers for Catalyst meds to be distributed in Taen; submit article to the local paper about how Catalyst medicine saved you or a loved one from illness; etc. The effectiveness of the extra 1-2 Players may allow one or both of them a comfortable rank in the mysterious and powerful criminal organization.
  4. Freedom in the Innocence of Avarice ouse Dali emerges ever farther from the sands of history, golden family roots finding light and thriving in the cracked dirt. Word of seamless Northtrail leadership and culturally privy Goldcourt tongues spread like wildfire. Attributes, members, and associates of the family’s branches were soon to be found in almost as many places as word of them could be. With growing recognition of the family, as with growing recognition of anything, came a swell of those who held house Dali in ill rapport. While reception of the family was largely well met, the world must always pockets of dissolution. The culturally privy could be mistaken for conniving, the air of leadership snide. What is this? Avarice Goldjest, considered a connoisseur of fashion in his circle of family and friends, had taken liberties with his father’s small fortune and gone travelling the Terran countryside with a couple friends. Well, he had come to village outside Dougton when he found himself accosted for his effeminate attire. Avarice stood up for himself boldly, flavoring his rebuttal with a couple spicy words he thought might add to his masculinity. Unfortunately for Avarice, the person he had exchanged verbal fisticuffs with was the village elder. His friends were not of enough fortitude to defend him when a group of luddite farmers in a recovering village called Tormo had locked him up for the slew of pompous insults; they were, however, man enough to return to House Dali and request help for their friend’s unfortunate blunder. In addition to a warning about the happenings upon Avarice, his friends tell of a large wolf prowling the area that attacks Tormo at night. Belos Titansinger, high priest and lawman of House Dali, answers the call to trial for Avarice’s freedom with two apprentice attorneys or journeymen he finds along the way. Together, the three will venture to Tormo and, do trial with the primitive folk village’s high counsel, and do what it takes to get their loudmouthed cousin back. Just how they will accomplish this feat may entail more danger and surprise than first meets the eye. What do we need? 1-2 people: Join Belos and save Avarice to advance in legal standing in house Dali; see what you can find in the blossoming village of Tormo; attempt to gain favor with the high counsel of Tormo, with Avarice, or Belos. @Diremast @KittyvonCupcake @ethela penna @Witches Brew (All other Dali family members tagged just in case they want to participate)
  5. Greetings! Vielle here 😄 Boy, this interest check has been a long time in the making— Míra Andronov, headmistress of Toxicant, is an enterprising businesswoman who has it in mind to establish various entrepreneurial endeavors around Terrenus and acquire both wealth and power in equal measure. Through these businesses, she seeks to extend her influence across the face of the continent, and soon to even beyond its shores. At the same time, Míra is also a cultured woman and highly enjoys art and similar intellectual, creative pursuits. Thus, her repertoire of enterprises includes various opera houses, one of which she is soon planning to construct and open in Coth. tl;dr We're establishing some opera houses around Terrenus, and I'm looking for some people to answer the call! ÓPERA TOU MOIRAI | or simply: Opera Moirai Location: Blairville, Terrenus When she became the Crow, Míra Andronov brought along her family’s opera house and incorporated it into the criminal business. Now, it caters to not only those fond of opera, but to the underground syndicates as well. I'm looking for at least 2-3 writers to join me in establishing Ópera tou Moirai, a lavish opera house in Blairville 😊 This thread takes place in the distant past, when Míra first acquires the deed from her family and revitalizes the ailing opera house into a more revered, highly-respected enterprise. Investors and esteemed patrons are also welcome to join! Possible rewards: a favor that can be used to call in a Toxicant agent for your personal goals/quests, gold, connections, and the like. Let's talk perks if need be! ÓPERA STON AÉRA | or simply: Opera Aera Location: Coth, Terrenus Looking for new business opportunities, Míra Andronov plans to establish an open-air opera and performance center in Coth. Due to the circumstances of said location, the criminal underbelly usually present in her other establishments is notably absent (for now) in this one. But no matter; Míra has more than enough of that to go about at the moment. I'm looking for at least 2-3 writers to join me in establishing Ópera ston Aéra, an open-air opera house in Coth 😊 This thread takes place in the current day and age, and will encapsulate the process of buying land to construction to formal opening of the cultural institution. Investors and esteemed patrons are also welcome to join! Possible rewards: a favor that can be used to call in a Toxicant agent for your personal goals/quests, gold, connections, and the like. Let's talk perks if need be! If you're interested to join in, please do specify which opera house you'd like to write for 😊 Feel free to PM me or comment below if you have any questions! ❤️
  6. A little over a year ago, a talented physician and medical scientist by the name of Dr. Kersh Engel was arrested in Port Caelum. It was discovered he was working with a mysterious cult that was kidnapping and torturing psions and magic-users, while he himself was also conducting illegal experimentation in an abandoned wing Port Caelum's general hospital. Engel has languished in prison since then, but his talents have not been forgotten. Agents working for the Norkotian Union, where Engel originally hails and from which he was exiled many years before, are now seeking an elite strike team to bust him out of the slammer. The operation is officially unsanctioned by the Norkotian government, which has prompted the agents to seek mercenaries and contractors who have no direct affiliation with the state. This hasn't stopped them from reaching out to some old friends, however... So, as if it wasn't already obvious, this mission is to break into the Port Caelum prison and extract the brilliant, but sadistic Doctor Kersh Engel. The agents giving out the mission won't identify the Norkotian government as their employers, so unless your character already knows the connection, they won't know any better. That said, I'm hoping to bring back some mercenaries who have worked for Norkotia in the past, and they might know better. But they should also know better than to let on what they know to the wrong people. 😉 Anyway, the thing I want for sure to happen is for Engel to be extracted and returned to Norkotia, most everything else in-between is wide-open. Anyway, I will likely be GMing this plot, possibly with advisement from @Red the Ambivalent. Also, @Djinn&Juice has expressed interest in being involved as well, possibly controlling another prisoner that will be encountered during the mission. Also, I'll be contributing my own member to the strike team, in the form of my bounty hunter Mara Mercer, who is indebted to Engel for saving her life. I'm accepting a max of three more members to this team, though honestly I can work it with only one or two. I'm reserving slots for a couple people I've worked with in the past who I believe I can trust to see the thread through to completion, so I'm just gonna go and tag them now: @scrivener @Abigail666 Top two slots are reserved for you two if you are interested. Beyond that, I'll accept new entries, but there's one a little caveat. See, I've had people abandon me mid-thread before, which leaves named characters kind of just hanging in the balance there, and forces me to have to control them myself. It also kind of disrupts the team dynamic and slows down the thread. THUS! I am putting a little rule into this thread. If you join, and you fail to post or notify me of absence for longer than two weeks, I will assume you have left the site, and subsequently your character will be killed in the narrative. A bit harsh? Perhaps. But I'm not interested in people who are going to just up and vanish without warning. I also think it adds to the narrative flavor if someone dies during the mission, so I consider that an added bonus if you fail me (evil laugh). Anyway, basically just know that if you are putting your character on the line if you enter them into this thread. Now, I'm a reasonable guy, so as I stated, if you communicate with me that you need to be absent for a time, then I will accept that and we can wait for you. It's if you fail to post and fail to respond to tags and attempts to remind/contact you, then I will assume you are gone from the site. This rule applies only to the strike team players. Okay, so if you have read all that, and you haven't already decided I'm an asshole that you definitely don't want to work with, feel free to apply your characters for entry below. I'll wait about a week for word from scrivener and Abigail, after which point I'll pick two or three people from the remaining entrants.

    To Make an Omlet...

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

    In Gaia We Trust

    The people have been given their freedom, now they must be given purpose to direct their newfound freedom. I for one cannot think of a better use than to help one's fellow man, for freedom from tyranny does not mean freedom from moral obligation. -Illyana Uldwar Setting: The island of Misral, Port Mars, daytime Genre: Political/Religious intrigue Objective: Celebrate Gaia and to spark a revival movement towards her worship in Ursa Madeum. Danger level: Low- As Illyana Uldwar is of noble birth and eldest daughter of the Lord and Lady Uldwar, she has been afforded a great deal of protection in her cause. Several knights, including a Dog of War, have been assigned as her protectors. Violence is possible however, but please make sure to discuss this with ne first before proceeding. Reward: Satisfaction of spreading the Holy Worship of Gaia to those that have lost their faith during the dark times. (More tangible rewards are possible but must be discussed before playing them out in the main thread.) Desired Story Arc: During one of her times devoted to prayer, Illyana Uldwar is given the inspiration and courage she needs to finally make an attempt on spreading the word of Gaia throughout Ursa Madeum. Her journey starts out in Port Mars, where the people feel uncertain and alone on their spiritual journey through life. Through her efforts, she hopes to awaken a fire within their souls, so that they may no longer feel alone in this frightening world. What Roles Am I Looking For?: One to three people to serve as companions or guards during this, its really up to you how you wish to be involved in this story as I left it open ended. Expectations: Good communication, an open mind for ideas and a willingness to keep disagreements civil. Aiming for at least two pages. Created Opportunities: Success of this mission means effecting the religious beliefs of the people of Ursa Madeum. This may also anger or threaten those that wish for the islands to remain secular or following a different religion as well.

  10. The Xenophobic stellar Empire of Emporion is in a great age of exploration in a time where ships of small and medium size could now be available commercial and residential use. There is a main story but like in video games there be side quest for us!. However heres the catch The Emporians live in what seems like a loney galaxy filled with tomb worlds and ruins, near the late period in the thread however other species would finally be found but most will not be frendily. ---- The year is 2268 (present day) the galaxy is full of mystery and emptiness, filled with relics of old and the structures of civilizations waiting to be explored. Will you take the call?

    Interest Check. Looking for 2-6 people. The seed Vanilla has been giving the mission of hunting down lost artifacts of the Red Blood Moon Children Organization to sell in her shop. However recent whispers in the little sleepy town of Ebony-Yahera has rumored one such artifact is uncovered. The Black Heart Mirror. A powerful yet dangerous artifact. Since it lies with a few other artifacts, the Black Heart Mirror Ore Bow and Quiver, the Red Blood Moon Chalice, the Ebony Quicksilver Rod and the Farenheit Celisus Heart Sword, it would quite an exciting adventure plus artifacts to acquire for all.

Zashii- Mistress, Sera 2. Ourlachesism-- 3. Hurttoto 4 5. 6.

    House of Choisel, BEWARE OOC

    To begin, my character is not from this world but from Gaia Primus. There are seven pureblood families. I encourage more Houses to come and play along and join us as a Society of Purebloods. However, I think starting with one which would be Choisel, would be a good start until we find more followers. I was kinda' shaky about this one, seeing as I don't know how Valucre and you all are going to take the idea of a totally new race of vampires here. For the most part I feel, people generally don't like vampires, but we all know how cool these undead beings actually are. These pureblood families are the first of vampires and are considered as the highest ranking from a lineage far, far away. I've looked at the vampires of Valkohyr and we share common abilities for the most part, but this is a different breed of vamp from a totally different world. I have information on the pureblood in my profile if you'd like to look. As for goals I plan to take some things over with time. Primarily I want this to be a unification of Purebloods. Let me know what you think, guys!
  13. *National music begins playing* Definitely not a stolen Anthem Land of poisoned grounds, survivors, uneven technologies, bi-polar economies, and a great education system based upon interest and favors rather then the institutional way. Now the nation is requesting a new batch of replacements for the Mayors role, There is one (and one space only) space for each city, town village, and new colonies if you favor settling up a colony. To do this how ever you would need to grab the favor of not just the people but the government as well. (Mysterious dissapearences are more noticable then you think!) Cameras are everywhere and on every person just for this very occasion. Requirements to become a mayor: You must have had political experience. You must not currently be in office of another political,Millartary,or corporate role. Any rivalries against our nation will percent you from joining. Those suspected will be interviewed more then the rest. 5. Those of an older age group are less likley to succeed. 6. No Vampires due to historical and political reasons and dispite efforts citizens will go out of their way to brutally murder any vampires within range. 7. Physic being will be interviewed but in secret Eyes are everywhere So now youve go the briefing any questions? (p.s as of today the actuall election starts in two weeks)
  14. has anyone wondered what the fate of that doom station hovering above lexdord has come to? have you wondered what purpose it might serve? well keep on asking and your going to the big house, or slavery or the mental ward which ever comes first....... or you can join the semi-official Security Enforcement Watch (S.E W) for short. The premise of this is to add lore to the doom station which has no lore other then it being an unfinished orbital station from the times when the country factioned. though now a new purpose arises to watch the populous no matter where they go if you join you can be one of those that sit and monitor or a security guard.

    Knower Of The Grave [OOC]

    I love how @Grubbistch has an interest check set up for In Gaia We Trust so....I'm using the same skeleton. Thanks. The passage to her shores will always be there. If they cannot find the way, then perhaps they are not worthy. Iylianna Setting: Veelos > An Ocean (No clue what the name of the ocean that Veelos sits on > ??? / Spring through Winter Genre: Epic/High Fantasy > Exploration Objective: Detecting/describing/classifying new species of flora/fauna while searching for a gateway that may or may not even exist. Danger Level: Medium to medium-high. Discovery of some species may have an element of danger coupled with environmental factors that might prove difficult. Violence is a possibility but I'd rather not turn this into a combat-style thread. Reward: Adding new entries to the Valucre bestiary. Possible artifacts, weapons, or other loot/treasure, if you will. Desired Story Arc: During her studies as a student of Oceania University in Veelos, Noelani has become obsessed with several tomes which reference a realm filled with magicks, flora & fauna, languages, religions, even entire populations that do not exist in the world of Valucre. However, after studying the translations, she believes she has found a way to travel between the veils that hide another version of Valucre that exists only in fairytales. To fund her expedition, she's relying on the ability to discover, capture, and return new flora/fauna. What roles am I looking for? Basically, I'm looking for 2-4 characters to act as companions, confidantes, protectorates, and/or guides. How you play along is totally up to you. Expectations: Communication, brainstorming of ideas, ability to push a storyline along. I really, really just want to be able to write but I don't want to be the sole person to push this story forward. I can commit a minimum of 3 -4 posts a week, possibly more as my life calms down. I can honestly say that I likely will not stick to a posting order. Meaning...if I gotta wait days for several people to post just so I can post.....I'm gonna post anyway. >_> I'm just sayin'. Please feel free to do the same but ...don't get crazy with it. Created Opportunities: If successful, characters with ties to Iselyr may have a viable explanation of what happened to a land that suddenly disappeared or never existed. And maybe we'll get some new creatures to add to the bestiary. I do love an extensive bestiary. Perhaps we will discover that Noelani's tomes are just profane books, meant to inspire insanity, or maybe someone with some authority will love our story enough to canonize her efforts. Who knows?

    There Be A Wolf In These Ruins

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

    A Night of Mystery and Mayhem

    Up in the mountains of Terrarus, rests the large and magnificent mansion of upper nobility and wealth, owned by a man with deep pockets and many connections. Someone who many people wanted to know, or cherrished knowing, he was a man with great charisma and strength as well as smarts. There were some who envied him, especially those who were often around him, and he provided much work for adventurers, mercenaries, and so on. His businesses were thriving, and the expeditions he funded were also rather fruitful. Truly a man who was blessed with luck. As such, various adventurers and such, as well as those of influence, would gladly go to his party, and some would even bring their families on occasion. The mansion was a large place that tempted people to explore its depths, built rather intricately and almost like a maze, there were a few who insisted the insides were constantly changed on each visit. With tricks, traps, and secret passages, there was always entertainment to be had. It was practically designed to entertain the curious, although the thieves who attempted to break in sometimes probably didn't find it as funny. However, little did anyone know tonight...about what would occur at this party, and the danger they would face. About just how their lives would be forfit, unless they could solve the mystery of this dangerous mansion. LOOKING FOR people who will be able to post frequently enough and are interested in a mix of mystery and action. There will also be some NPCs around, but its up to the players really. The plan is for all the characters to be trapped in the mansion until they solve the mystery, while trying to survive the attacks of the entities full of malice. As for the resolution, well since it would be nice if my character didn't die from my first try, how about everyone solving the mystery and escaping? The character I plan to use is the first and currently only character I put on this site, Momo Moryan. He came with his "mom", but before they all get trapped, she is going to step outside for a moment and end up locked outside while everyone else is locked inside. Also, neither her nor anyone else will find themselves able to communicate and call for help. It will be a fight for survival against threats while solving the mystery of what is going on so they can escape. BTW, for those who are wondering, leaving aside my map skills, due to the fact that the mansion keeps changing its interior, there is no map of the mansion. It would only end up confusing you more. This is Momo's Profile for those who are curious: Confirmed Characters: Momo Moryan Clover

    Secret Thread

    I usually base threads I'm going to start with different ideas in mind. Sometimes my threads are formed around a place, or a character. Sometimes my threads are formed around a certain adventure type (example - demon pirates raiding an aircraft you happen to be on). This time I was thinking of making a thread based on a theme.... a secret theme. Every character that joins the thread will have a secret that they are keeping. It could be any secret.... a secret mission, a secret friend, a secret pain, a secret crush, a secret baby.... you get the idea. It could be anything secret. Of course the secret isn't revealed at the beginning of the thread. Different clues can be given throughout the thread to slowly unravel what juicy secret your character has to hide. Or it might not be revealed. That will depend on you, or how much your character opens up about themselves. Setting won't be the focus of this thread, so I was thinking of a setting that would force characters to go through a kind of crisis to where they will reluctantly bond over the event. One building should do. Swally's Swamp Bar is just as good a spot as any. Remeber, the only requirement for joining this thread.... your character has a big secret. 😉
  20. I have a mercenary/monster hunter/adventurer named Howl who has recently been cursed. Hoping to find a cure, Howl has traveled from Alterion to Terrenus by way of Renovatio in search of a cure. I’m looking for 2-3 individuals who would be interested in taking part in a multi faceted plot which will see us take on a quest in every major continent. 1) Terrenus - Quest TBD - Goal: return Howl to a Human (more or less) form. 2) Genesaris - Quest TBD - Goal: learn the origins of the cursed amulet and how it came to be in Alterion. 3) Alterion - Quest TBD - Goal: Locate Howl’s original client... 4) Renovatio - Quest TBD - Goal: Revenge, Profit????, Answers. Other than the backstory of the Amulet, I have none of this plotted out. Each adventure we take in each region will have its own impact on the story as well as it’s own reward. I’m looking for anyone who is willing to help me push this story forward and vibe some old school random writing.

    Open Storybook

    Hello everyone, I am planning to write something slightly different than normal and would like to see if anyone is interested in joining. I plan on making a chronicle of the continent of Terrenus in its current state and thus decided to have my character travel all around the continent, to every location of interest to me. I want to make things a little more exciting though, so I have decided to add two clauses to this journey. I) I want the chronicle to exist as though someone who truly lived in this world had written in. So, I won't spend too much time in each location, a week or two IRL at maximum. Furthermore, I will be writing only things that are happening in each location while my character is there. So, if a quest is underway in a city, I would want to write about it. but if it isn't resolved before I leave, then it is left unresolved as far as my character is concerned. Furthermore, while I will write this to be mostly objective, it won't be completely impartial. I will include personal anecdotes and opinions on current events. In the grand scheme of things, this means that the chronicle won't contain the writings of an omniscient character, and is even unreliable to a certain extent. I think it would be an interesting challenge and a fun way to record the world at a more personal level to the characters who live in it, rather than just us as the authors. II) As I am traveling the world, other characters besides NPCs exist. I think it would be entertaining to have multiple co-authors on this chronicle, all characters who are joining me in my travels. They can contribute multiple perspectives to each city, or even visit other locations my character is not at, and discuss events from their perspective. An interesting consequence of this approach is that an inhabited world means you will run across people completely on accident. So, if my character or a co-author is in a city or location where you have a character, you would be welcome to jump into the thread and start interacting with these characters. It can be as complex as deciding to have your character join my own for a few cities, or we simply meet in a forest and share a meal. Once you decide you are done with the thread, you can simply have your character leave. You wouldn't need to tell us beforehand either, for the purposes of this thread, you can just start a reply to the thread and write your character into the situation. I believe this would be an interesting and entertaining challenge for myself as an author, and would also serve as an in-universe method of spreading information on a massive scale, as the chronicle would be a book that another character could purchase once it is "completed" and published. Of course, the unreliability of the medium can be used for more than simply spreading information. A character could speculate on certain things and, if logical enough or if the character is prestigious enough, these speculations could be accepted as true by the inhabitants of the world despite not being true in actuality. I can describe a number of other possibilities, but I'm interested to see if anyone would be willing to participate in this to any degree first. What do you think?

    Rise of a Necromancer

    Jalafrax is a necromancer with cunning, evil plans. What a dastardly sort, he is! He is available to attack, bewitch, annoy, scheme about, oppose, assist, enslave, or resurrect your characters, today. Perhaps you're a grand hero who is starting out, and want an enemy to grow alongside you. Perhaps you're some sort of cleric, or druid, or paladin, or other type of "Say no to necromancy" type folk, and want to purge him. Perhaps you're an undead character, and need someone to bring you back from the grave. Jalafrax is available to fulfil your necromancy needs! Oh, also, Jalafrax can be found anywhere. Because I haven't bothered figuring out where he is.
  24. Hello everyone, I've been working on a thread the past few weeks involving the Taen Empire and the city of Tethys. The thread has now progressed to where I will be taking my character, Asrael, and two other characters to Tethys as a delegation on behalf of the Taen Empire. As ambassadors, our goal will be to successfully negotiate with the Prime Minister of Tethys and resolve a small conflict that has been ongoing between the two nations, before it grows any larger. Specifications: I am seeking two people to join me in the delegation, and one more to control the Prime Minister for the duration of the thread. Please note, when the thread resolves the Prime Minister will revert to being an NPC. I have no strict requirements for your rate of posting, as long as it remains reasonable. So, if you want to have fun with a small thread for a little bit, please let me know! Reference Threads: - Establishing Thread - Resurrection of the Witch King Exactly how these two threads will be related will be discussed with participants when I have selected them (though you can infer it). Further details of how the negotiation will unfold will also be explained at that time.
  25. Genre: Fantasy Location: Genesaris Idea: Saila is a poor girl who suffers from a condition that devours magic. Nobody knows, except for her, how this manifested, but it has lead to some unforeseen consequences. She desires to consume magic as much as possible, and in doing so, could wreak havoc in a place where magic is omnipresent, venerated, and held up as a pillar of society. Like Genesaris. If your character or organisation wants: To destroy magic, because it's bad. To destroy magic, because it complicates your plans. To investigate antimagic, in hopes of being able to use it. To cure or kill Saila because magic is good. To cure or kill Saila because magic is necessary. Or any number of things, perhaps Saila is a character that could interest them. If you feel that there's a way for them to interact that's beyond glaring at the dishevelled child in the street, please respond! I'm open to any suggestions!
