  1. hello fellow roleplayers, its your favorite rambler who likes to bother people, me. Anyways, I am on the third chapter of one of my biggest rps ever. Its about the war happening in the floating islands due to the princess of the land, Rin. At first she wanted to bring peace back but now she's changed and became evil. What I'm rambling about, is as I decided to focus on the third island, since Athentha and Lyonesse gets tons of exposure. Talia, has its own sets of problems. A dying cult resurfacing. Its princesses caught up in this mess. So for this chapter, I brought in a knight who fought against the mirror and barely escaped. She seeks out Ra, a demoness from Lyonesse, to help her learn more of the secrets of this organization. Lore, though very disorganized, I was wondering if one or two people can help me out by playing a character or two to help destroy any hope of these two finding a light to crush the Black Heart Mirror Organization. So, I need someone to play Nebula's old captain of the Plutonium knights, that has become committed to the cult, and wants to spread more mirror pieces. And another character to play someone from Ra's past to persuade her to the side of the black heart mirror. Sorry if my words are muddled, I am terrible at explaining things. Can ask questions here. All lore, and things Athentha located in the signature and the link posted above. also, here's the girst two chapters to get caught up on if needed. ❤️
  2. So I admit I've gone a little bored in my summer vacation and those fewer people who I've RPed with have lives of their own and they one of them is in school and the other busy with life, just to name a few. Then again I do have a life of my own, just it ain't as busy as theirs. Because I want more of my 2 year found passion to last till life would get serious with me, I thought I'd make a post and attract some attention to those who are interested and free to RP. I also have an RP going on which is "Legacy of Requiem: The New Leaguers" but because of someone who has some life stuff going on, it's put on hold sadly... But before all that, here are some Genres or Settings I mostly like RPing in. Do bare in mind these are not a most, they are not set in stone, sure I'd like for some to be kept but everything can come to an agreement in the end, because I'm a pretty open person. Fantasy: This can fall into many categories but let's put a few examples out there. First one I think of is the Superhero Setting, for example characters like: Captain America, Black Panther, Deadpool, Wolverine, Superman and many more, there is probably also heroes in the Anime Genre, like Goku and so on but they don't need ot be that, the main premise I'm trying to point out is what I like to call these types of characters "super-powered individuals." But I understand not so many are interested in that so there is another type of category, I like to call that Lord of the Rings one because of the following things such as: Fantasy Land, it can be from floating islands to big Avatar Type trees to Elfs or dark Elfs to Wraiths to Dragons and heck even Aliens not there is also the Angels and Demons which I don't know if they fit in this one as well as the Supernatural one but I might as well mention them, these are some ideas, bare in mind. Sci-Fi: This also falls into three categories, let's start with this one. The Billionaire IronMan/Black Panther category, what I mean by that is one who has an incredible amount of wealth which also happened to be a genius or have a genius around him, enabling him the possibility of an advanced cybernetic you name it suit but he doesn't have to be a Billionaire, he can be a normal guy who stumbled upon a wealthy wise old man, the possibilities are endless. The second one is the Star Wars Setting, which I mean by, either lightsabers to laser guns to flying giant behemoth spaceships to superluminal space travel and so on. I once had an idea of a guy who had an armored suit with a lightsaber on him, since we do RP we don't have to follow the laws of realism after all it's just a RP 😂 And the last but not least the Mecha Genre, now I know this fits in more into Mecha but you always see Sci-Fi next to it so might as well blend them together for the sake of simplicity. This can be taken to Gundams, which are basically Robots piloted by one pilot to Jaegers from Pacific Rim who are piloted by two pilots to living robots aka the Transformers! Romance: It could be anything in these type of setting. I do like romance if done right and I don't have a problem if it is a part of the RP for example or not, it's just to be out there, it's not a must. This could go to the type of cliche I call "Romeo and Juliet" which falls into the never meant to be category, because I'm different, I'm weird and you are so perfect and vice versa. Or the cliche "Meant to be" like oh yeah, I'm a good looking guy, you a good looking gal, we meet at a coffee shop, we connect eyes and there happily ever after and so on, there are many ideas you can go about it. Thriller/Drama: What I mean by this is to give tension, suspension and deliver. And to also make it seem that maybe the protagonist might not always win and that not necessarily means if today was a good day tomorrow would be the same, hence the drama. You can go endlessly with the possibilities. Supernatural: From Magic Users like, John Constantine, Doctor Strange and Doctor Fate to Angels being on Earth for one reason or the other, being at war with Demons and fighting ever since a millennia, that type of thing to the setting of a Ghost Rider which I do love. I once had a character called Dante O'Brian who instead of having a Demon as his Ghost Rider it was an Angel of Justice, called Kafziel and he had to struggle to accept love again with this Female Lycan called Amber...yeah it's a love story who is still going on to this day with many plots and impactful moments, alright back to the point. All of that to the point of a edgy anti-hero, which we all know to be Spawn or a type Spawn character, to some Lycan/Werewolfe/Vampire and so on. Fun Fact, I watched two dark Animes, the first one was Devil's Line and I loved it. Then I watched Tokyo Ghoul all four seasons and I loved it! So take that information as you will. But basically if you don't know, Devil's Line is about Vampires and Tokyo Ghoul about Ghouls who have kagunes that are weapons formed from their bodies, if you want more information go on google. No again do bare in mind this is not a must or set in stone, sure I'd like to keep some of these premises in my book when I do RP but I'm an open person and when I like a suggestion I'll surely use it and extend it furthermore. And it sure would be nice if some of you would want to RP with me, that number can go to 1-1 to 3-4 to 7-8 players and so on, hey might as well make a big RP that will shake whole Valucre to its core! 😂 I'm also a writer since Sep. 9th of 2018, my first ever story was a FanFiction about Transformers called the TFCU (Transformers Cinematic Universe) which had marvel elements to it, aka the Infinity Stones. Yeah I went about the 13th Chapter and stopped...it's a writers beginning type thing so it may not be the next stephen king novel that's for sure. Maybe one day I should go to it and edit it...eh we'll see. Then I started to write a original story called "Infinity Requiem" yeah I'm at Chapter 3 currently writing it so I hope that will be well received but to the RP side of things, we have 2019 so I've RPed since 2017, yeah I know not a lot of years but I'm that type of person who learns really quickly if I put my mind on it...or at least if I do enjoy it, so over these past 2 years I've accumulated a lot of knowledge and yet I still learn more and more as day goes by! Well if you are interested please let me know and if you want to talk about it, I'd be more than happy to do so. I'm a friendly, nice guy, so don't be scared...I don't bite...usually...I'm kidding, anyway, I thank you sincerely if you read this whole page and I wish you a great day, peace! 😃
  3. Research the Valley of Elemental Stone Located in Taen is an untouched valley, its beauty and potential ready for exploring. The recently discovered valley holds a high volume of elemental stone, resulting in anomalous and ever changing terrain. Floating islands and rivers, endless waterfalls, creeping mist and more. The flora and fauna found have perfectly adapted to this environment, exclusively found within the valley. "Study how water flows in a valley stream, smoothly and freely between the rocks. Also learn from holy books and wise people. Everything - even mountains, rivers, plants and trees - should be your teacher." Official Page Basic Overview ~ Objective ~ Explore, research and catalog the geography of the valley. Difficulty ~ Easy Reward ~ One adapt level summon/familiar, adapt level enchanted item or oddity trinket. Hello and welcome everyone! I've decided to start my first large scale project and currently looking for others to join. The project in question is meant to be fairly laid back and more wholesome, but can go in any direction if desired. The purpose is to build upon the valleys lore, allowing participants to create and shape its geography. Building a catalog of what can be found there such as fauna, flora, fungi, terrain, landscape, phenomena, etc. So far nothing has been made beyond a basic outline, so this is pretty much a blank template. The starting point will be Hydra’s Haven, participants will be transported to the location via airship. Once there you’ll be allowed to go off in a group or solo, do whatever you want whilst you're there. However, the main goal is to explore and research the inhabitants. You’ll be able to create your own plants, animals, terrain features, anomalies, etc and they’ll be added to the official page. Create as much or as little as you desire, just follow the simple template below if you do decide to make something. A more detailed template can be created if desired. E.G for fauna you could add subdivision, temperate, etc. The example below is simply the minimal content required. Researcher name: Your characters name Name: The name of your creation. Classification: Flora, fauna, topography, anomalie, etc. Descriptions: Description of your creation. Upon return you’ll be rewarded for a job well done. You'll be able to choose one of the three listed rewards mentioned in the basic overview, the item or summon will be randomly created by me. Examples of enchanted items could be something along the lines of an enchanted sword or ring. Examples of summons/familiars could be an elemental slug or miniature psionic dragon. Examples oddity trinkets could be a compass that always points home or a necklace that gives you an out of body experience. If you want something specific then feel free to ask, but I won’t be creating anything too powerful. Thanks for reading! I'm always open to suggestions if you have any, if you have any questions then don’t be afraid to ask. Current Crew @Thotification @Chemister_Kaane @Infernal @Vilhardt
  4. 'Class ? A dare among children causing them to perform a ritual to invite spirits into their home is rumored to be the cause of the high rate of missing children. Find out if this is true, or what's really happening.' In the city of Dougton, something sinister stirs. It is something of an open secret; acknowledged, but not agreed upon as to its causes or consequences. After all, who wants to be the one that knows exactly why so many children have disappeared into the night, and to have done nothing? Perhaps that shall be what compels a stranger or two, should they spot a child alight from a side or back window, to investigate. To know what the people of Dougton refuse to admit to. So, starting a new quest because I cannot help myself. Hoping for one extra person, maybe two if I can figure how to make it work somehow. That said, I would very much ask that whoever joins be prepared to post regularly. Obviously stuff might come up, so just say if so, but I would like to keep a regular flow going for this one. Don't wanna interrupt all the spooky fun with rituals and demons and possibly worse, after all. This will be a bit of a darker fare, just to note in advance.
  5. I have a character whose a professor of adventure-ology and adventure-nomics I’m looking for characters at the novice level of adventuring who want to learn how to dungeoneer and make a practical living off the adventure. Naturally they won’t learn everything, it’s just the 101 class after all. Gotta get the basics somewhere right? This would be starting in May and should be for “freshman” characters (in terms of applicable skills, not necessarily age) Anyone interested? IC Characters Donovan Leo Yineffe
  6. 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.
  7. Mae Govanen Friends, Strangers, and Fellow Fortune Seekers, If you happen to be receiving this message you have happened across my Emergency beacon spell. I must be brief but I am Captain Richter Konig of the Justicar. In a recent battle we fought against a Nest of Sky Pirates left my Vessel severely damaged and unable to to make harbor for formal repairs. We are currently Grounded and in needs of supplies to perform emergency repairs. The Goddess has blessed us that most of our engineering team made it out alive. But most of our Personal flyers were destroyed save a handful. We have located a forest and cavern that should provide us the necessary raw materials to salvage my vessel. But alas my former command crew is all missing in action and I need to leave my Ground crew and Marines to keep the Auxiliary teams secure while we secure the resources. I need the aid of a few brave souls to assist me in acquiring these materials. If we all happen to make it out of here alive. I could use capable hands on my Ship. Goddess watch over you. (Themes: Action/Survival/Adventure)
  8. something heinous a w a k e n s. . . Hello everyone, Vielle here (representing @Wade too!) ❤️ Anyone up for a little D&D-style dungeon delving? As stated before, I’ve made quests for Vanora and wanted to try my hand at GM-ing some of them. After bouncing ideas back and forth with Wade, I figured this particular quest would be the one to start things out, and so here’s a quest to be co-GMed by myself and Wade 😊 I won’t lie—I’ve been greatly inspired by @OBELUS's CYOA-esque thread and its story mechanics, and also by @Jotnotes’ fabulous dungeon-threads, and so will be borrowing some elements from them as well as from the love of my gaming life Dungeons & Dragons in order to create this system of play-writing. The premise: A collapse in the streets of Vanora reveal a hidden underwater grotto with an extensive cave network. City officials are willing to pay for the exploration of the caves after an initial search of the shallow areas has recovered some long lost treasure from the era of the Queendom. The party’s objective is to explore the grotto and bring back whatever treasures and information they can find. But of course, nothing valuable is so easily given, and something is stirring in that musty darkness. . . The rules are simple: Speed is da wae. Brevity rules ftw! I don’t mind if people take some time to post, but I’d definitely appreciate a little more speed for this one 😊 Two days before skipping is in play here, unless circumstances prevent posting, in which case let us know in the OOC thread! Be curious. This is most definitely an exploration-focused adventure quest (with a dash of combat on the side). We won’t be giving up clues all willy-nilly, and so proactive interaction with each other and the environment is key to success. Who knows what mysteries and shiny things you’ll find? 👀 Roll to determine success. When it comes to traps, perception checks, and certain event triggers/prompts, we’ll be asking for dice rolls to determine what happens to your characters. Fate is unpredictably fun that way 😉 One last thing: This quest is part one of the A Darkness Beneath narrative questline, and so the events of this thread will be the foundation for the upcoming quests and plotlines that will spawn from its completion. You can choose to stick around for whatever comes next, or go on to continue your tales elsewhere: whichever floats your boat! 😊 Optimally, we’re looking for 2-4 writers to join us! The IC and OOC thread will be up by Wednesday next week, after which recruitment will be closed. If anyone is interested, please let us know here or in a PM! ❤️ . . . in the darkened world b e l o w.
  9. The Skar Clan, newcomers to Terrenus proper, and the official denizens of the Forgotten Woods, have finally flushed the faefolk from the woods. Now, with room and food, their numbers grow fast--terrifyingly so, and their underground tunnels grow far and deep now. However, the Skaven are not along in this development, as a small trading town has erupted just above the tunnels--and this town is only growing larger and larger as more folk attempt to settle there. This poses problems for the Skaven and humans alike, as soon they will not be able to sustain the entire population. While they wait for farms to develop and produce, the Skaven and their companions must make do with what they can find--and steal. Of course, raiding and conquering is potentially profitable business for all involved. So, when Lars--the Quartermaster and Mayor of Nesthome--put out the request for scouts, word spread quite quickly. What kind of word? Well, all sorts. Some declare this an act of war, as the Skaven make preparations to invade the rest of Terrenus. Others believe this is a grand opportunity to explore. Regardless, there's a good bit of coin involved, for those willing to bloody their hands for a rapidly growing swarm of ratmen. This thread will focus on a small group of companions, with an equally small company of skaven taskmasters. These ratmen have been instructed to scout the world beyond the forgotten woods, identify ideal targets to sack and raid, and mark them somehow. Adventurers are encouraged to help however they can, be it through raiding the towns themselves, trying to scare off the folk living there, or whatever they see fit. Adventurers will be compensated for their efforts, which will also dramatically shape the scope of the Skaven's territory from here on in.
  10. 'Class A: At the eye of the storm that tears across the land lies a floating citadel.' It was early in the morning when researchers at the Department for Meteorology, Ignatz University, had requested to speak with the Regent. It was midday when they were cleared to speak with her. There they told her of a storm system that had, as according to their instruments and verified by their counterparts in Hell's Gate, formed over the former Wastelands. A very large storm system - a hurricane, really - and headed in their direction, with only days before it might cross the mountains, and bring its wind and rain to the valley in which the city sits. Only days to prepare the people for what was coming. One researcher at the back fidgeted. After repeated instances of doubt, she dared to raise her voice. But she was drowned out by arguments by and with city officials as to the best course of action to take in light of such an imminent catastrophe. So, she has spent her afternoon and evening going about the city. To inns and taverns, the train station and the first temple - anywhere and everywhere where travellers, adventurers, or anyone otherwise familiar with the perils of the wild, might be found on such short notice. Asking them whether they wished to be paid well for a quick job. To those that said yes, she directed them to meet her, just before the stroke of midnight, at the University. So that she might grant them access to the Department's airship, with which they might gather 'direct readings' of the event. So that they can determine whether or not her superiors were in correct in dismissing the storm's avoidance of the Plateau of Zühl over the course of the day as simply a natural arc, or if there is perhaps another factor in play... Spoilers: There is. Hoping to put together a party with 2-3 other people (though could always stretch) for what shall hopefully be a 45+ post adventure featuring a flying fortress of doom, cultists awaiting the return of their dark lord, simultaneous revenge plots spanning decades and centuries, a whole bunch of lore references, and more than a few cool set pieces along the way. Boss fight(s) highly probable.
  11. Now you see, Tookie was a masterful storyteller. His one and only book, Tantalizing Tales, has stayed atop the bestseller charts eons before they existed. It tells tales of a world horrible and beautiful, it fables the monsters that have come and gone and will come again in due time. The future and the past of the world has already been inscribed into its pages. But unfortunately, it seems the world has forgotten of it’s essence, at the word of 80 year old bearded virgins. Though if one wishes to drink of Tookie’s wisdom, It is never too far. It sits on the shelf of any child worth their salt, clad not in leather but in magic in awe. So are you ready to discover the wonderful world of Valucre through new eyes? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) -x- I want to create an official in-world book full of fairy tales. We can do this through an assortment of roleplays throughout all of Valucre (mostly in the past). We can experiment with timelines, races, settings etc (eg: Create a floating town 500 years in the past inhibited by walking tomatoes) We can add to the lore or build and strengthen existing lore. We can create fabled characters in Valucre canon! (WOOOAH! Have you heard about the treasures of Dudely the dudewrecker?!) Any genre goes. We can have lots of fun. Once we’re done with each thread, we will water it down and glorify it’s events and turn it into a nice little fairytale or a really dark one! Who knows? And though I can’t promise if I have the time I will do some cool graphics for it. This is an all out experimental endeavour, I want to break the conventional rp structure and see what else can we do. All ideas, questions and criticisms are welcome! I’d like to start off the first tale with 3-4 other people. Anyone interested in helping with the overall project is also welcome and should DM me. *Name of the book is subject to change. Let's go! :D
  12. ... No, not that kind of sticky. Probably. Well, as I promised, here's quest number two that I'm going to be running in Yh'mi! This one, as you can see, will involve tracking down a thief, capturing them, and making them wish we would show mercy and end their miserable li- I mean, uhh, turn them in to face justice! Yeah. This will be another small one, so I'm looking for a max of two more people once again. This time, the character I'm bringing will be Acele, who... I haven't actually used before! So more fun to be had there, myes.
  13. 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.”
  14. Valucrean.Containment.Foundation "Site-27 has been breached. If you received this message, it is because we require help from the best. Mercenaries, soldiers, warriors, whatever you may be before, you now have a choice. Ignore this message and move on as if you've never read this, or help us save countless lives. You shall be rewarded handsomely of course for your troubles, that is if you survive. Today, Terrenus calls on you. Will you answer?" -Excerpt of OS-5's message Site-27 is a heavy containment unit built for the containment of troublesome CS's (Containment Subjects). 3 days ago, the Site has stopped transmitting it's daily reports to Facility-01. 2 days ago, the Foundation Security Task Force Gamma-12 (FSTF Gamma-12) was deployed to investigate Site-27. 1 day ago, all members stopped transmitting reports. 7 hours ago, OS-5 [Sentinel] has established a perimeter of 25 Km around Site-27, bringing whatever reserves the Foundation could deploy in Terrenus to prevent a sector-level annihilation event. 5 hours ago, all CS's were found to return to the breached site. OS-5 sent out calls of help to warriors, soldiers, mercenaries, guns for hire, leaders, anyone who was willing to heed the call to fight on behalf of the foundation. The full message can be read below. This is a heavily inspired Containment Breach RP, as to how the organization of SCP inspired the VCF. There are three CS's that need to be contained, each more difficult than the last. Anyone who's character is within Terrenus in more than welcome to help in their own odd way! Whether it is through their brute force, their durability, their strategical mind or their courage to take risks! Any and all are welcome for this relatively casual RP. Details of the CS's will be discussed within the main IC 😄 Of course, I'll play as OS-5 and the three CS's themselves. Each of you who are interested in joining will be accountable for the lives of each man, who have families, friends, loved ones and the sort. Be sure to protect them! Who's up for some containment breach? 😃 V.C.F (Valucrean Containment Foundation)
  15. After a run in with some local Slavers in Genesaris, the aspiring Slayer known as Jinsoku has decided to take it upon himself to raid and dismantle the Alcove, ultimately freeing the slaves that are already there, and hopefully stopping more from being created. While he very well could do this job on his own, things always go a lot smoother with the right team having been assembled. As a note, Jinsoku affiliates with The Order of Force Majeure whom affiliates with the Scarlet Regions as it's base resides in Predator's Keep. He also affiliates with Hyperion in the Rising West. These affiliations should not be mistaken as the source of this quest, rather this man Jinsoku himself simply couldn't bother to continue turning a blind eye to such a terrible operation happening presumably with the government's support considering the lack of response to the activity. A large group could be ideal, though it seems that any time the involved parties include more than 3-5 people, things start to get a little lost in translation, or the wait time between posts becomes so wide the activity never finishes. For that reason I'm open to a larger or smaller group for this job depending on who is involved and how those of us involved decide to go about the "quest". Also, in the case of larger interest, don't be surprised if I break one huge group into two or three small, fair sized groups for just that reason. This plot is intended to be submitted for canon. It'd be nice to get at least two volunteers to join me, though I definitely wouldn't be going beyond nine additional participants. (Max Party Size = 10 (Including Jinsoku))
  16. Necessity and a healthy dose of ambition are driving Akako, the current Regent of Port Caelum, to expand her territory. With the immediate threat that the Datsuzoku Empire presents, Akako is amassing power and allies to take down the potential threat. Beyond that, she seeks to spread her influence far beyond the Port City she currently governs. Since arriving in Valucre, the daiyokai had been satisfied to take a supporting role; however, everything has changed with long-standing allies failing her by either neglecting their duties to lead appropriately or by betraying her trust on a more personal level. It is finally time for the rumored Yokai Queen to solidify her status and rise to power befitting someone of her station. Upon joining Akako’s ranks, you will be exposed to a roleplay experience that is unlike any other offered in Valucre. What we offer is a unique prestige rank and influence tier system that will reflect upon in-character accomplishments, which will allow you to earn character and player privileges respectively. I am currently looking for a group of dedicated long-term players that are ready and eager to be involved in both PVP and PVE conflicts in the forms of espionage, diplomacy, war, and much more. Q&A Section: 1. What do you mean be "earn character and player privileges?" There are roles that I have already set, however, they are NPCs which can be controlled by people within the organization depending on what influential tier and prestige ranking you've acquired. Basically, it isn't the position that is of interest to you or any other RPer, but the authority to use a certain level of power within the empire as it expands. For instance, say a higher ranked RPer was writing with a lower ranked RPer, the higher ranked RPer would be able to exercise the most influence over the NPC's regardless of who owns the thread. So, when you first start you would be tier 0, so you have no control over any of the NPC's, but as you rise in ranks you basically have access to more. That being said, there is a cap on how many "cooks" there will be in the kitchen. And to get to the highest tier, there needs to be a substantial amount of work put in.The reason for that is the influence tier system is basically a symbol of trust in you (or another player). Basically, if I am going to let you drive my car, I need to trust that you're dedicated to my cause. 2. Can you explain a little more about the influential tier, and prestige ranking? Like how do you earn them, which one does what, and what exactly I would need to do to increase either? The influential tiers are the overall control you will have in a setting over NPC's, so this is for the player. The prestige ranking basically is how much sway you will have with Akako ICly with your OC. An OC with higher prestige will have an easier time asking her for something or making suggestions than someone that doesn't have that prestige. Prestige rankings can pretty much give an OC minor celebrity status which can be used in other ways aside from how they interact with Akako. So, someone with a high enough prestige ranking could theoretically get a guard to overlook them committing a minor crime or they might be able to eat at places for free. I know a lot of tabletop games and even video games include a Charisma stat. I would think of prestige as something akin to that. So influence tiers are for the player, while each OC has its own prestige rank. (Ex. A tier 5 player may have one OC with 30 prestige points and another OC with only 10.) So here is how the Tier system looks and the requirements per tier. Influential Tiers: Tier 0 - No special privileges Requirement: N/A Tier 1 - Minor control over basic NPCs and some guards. (Ex. If you're following Hanami, I am doing just that when we see some of those staffed by Akako coming and going from the estate and when they watch the interaction between Koji and Akako. You will notice that they do not directly interact with anyone at this point.) Requirement: 350 points, 10 prestige points Tier 2 - Control over basic NPCs and some guards. At this point, you can control them to interact with others aside from your character. That means, you can have them interact with other OC's at this point. Requirement: 700 points, 15 prestige points Tier 3 - Can control mid-level diplomats. Requirement: 1050 points, 30 prestige points Tier 4 - Basically control anyone within the town/city that is under Akako's influence. Requirement: 1400 points, 50 prestige points Tier 5 - Able to declare war and broker peace treaties. Requirement: 1750 points, 100 prestige points The point system comes in two parts, points earned by completing quests and earning “extra credit based on the amount of work and thought put into the quest. The second part is prestige points awarded by the class of quests completed. Obviously, the harder the quest, the more prestige points you can earn. Again, the point requirement to move up in tier includes the prestige points earned. (ex. 345 accumulated quest completion points + 15 prestige points = 360 points)
  17. 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.
  18. Art by Joon Ahn A new world rises on the shores of Thraece. . . Hello everyone, it’s ya girl Vielle here ❤️ A new city rises, brimming with promise: a coastal paradise on the shores of Thraece, one of the three islands that make up Ursa Madeum. With the arrival of House Hildebrand, the once-sleepy fishing village has turned into a bustling hub of commerce and potential, ripe for new stories and adventures to take root in. Shape this city, or let it shape you—either way, Vanora is open for business! A foreword of sorts: So what does Vanora have to offer? ► Business Opportunities! — Wanna get rich? (Spoiler: of course you do; don’t fight it 👀 ) Take up the helm of preexisting businesses in Vanora or make your own, and watch that sweet savory pile of gold flow through your bathroom pipes and into your shiny tub. What’s money for if not to swim in? ► Notable People (that could be you!) — Become the stuff legends are made of: take up a preexisting NPC or work your way up to fame (or infamacy) as your own character! Either way, they’ll be writing tales about you for centuries to come. ► Exotic Adventuring Locales! — Exploration is the name of the game here; there is so much to discover not only within the borders of Vanora, but outwards to the sprawling wildlands and turbulent waters beyond. You never know what you’ll find hiding around the next corner! Just be sure to take a map: we won’t be responsible for any gruesome unfortunate incidents that may occur lest you get lost. Don’t say we didn’t warn you 😂 ► Quests Ahoy! — Urban navigating? Treasure hunting? Seashell collecting? Giant crab wrangling? Deep sea diving? Religious scheming? Seaweed socializing? Vanora has got tons of adventures coming up soon, with many quests building on prior IC events! Make your own quests (if applicable) or pursue any listed on the Vanora Quest List. @Wade and I are brainstorming up a multi-chapter quest line coming out very soon that would hopefully whet some appetites looking for some good ‘ol dungeon delving amongst other things 👀 ► Loremaking! — Wanna make something new you haven’t currently seen around that could fit right into Vanora, like wondrous flora or fauna the world has yet to see, or strange locations to tempt bumbling adventurers to explore? All ideas are welcome here; we need only discuss it and/or check it for approval, and then it’s off and canon to the city lore! ► Persistent Plotlines! — When I say persistent, I mean long-term, inter-connected, and consistent plotlines that can ultimately shape the face of the city, the region, and even the very oceans of UM. We’ve got heavy storm clouds of ideas rumbling in the horizon we hope to bring about, and hopefully you all will love them as much as we do ❤️ Last, but most certainly not least: ► Coconut People! — Sentient tribal coconuts, guys, come on! 'nuff said, says Moana. If you find yourself looking for a new sandbox to play in (with some waves thrown in for good measure), don’t hesitate to stop by and look around: maybe you’ll find something you like 😉 Let me know if you’re up for some coastal livin’ and beach lovin’ here or in a PM! ❤️

  20. 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.
  21. 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. 🙂
  22. 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.
  23. “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!
  24. in the highlands, a brewing power grows. . . Hello everyone, Vielle here (representing @Animal too!) ❤️ The Datsuzoku Dynasty in the Midlands of Genesaris is establishing new clans under their imperial rule, and amidst the many lesser families of the Kaminari Clan—one of the five main Clans of the Datsuzoku—a long-shadowed, old money family rises, intent on the pursuit of cultured endeavors and affluence known the world over. The stage is set for a slow-burn chess game of smoke and mirrors, of political subterfuge and artistic showmanship, of betrayal and love and death and ties broken and renewed, and the nurturing of ambition to not only overthrow their Kaminari masters, but enough, even, to overthrow an empire. tl;dr, we are looking for people to join the Yanaihara Clan! tl;dr #2, to clarify and avoid confusion—I'm working with this minor family to take over the NPC major Clan (the Kaminari) so the Yanaihara can eventually be a major Clan! We're putting IC effort to be a canon clan and establish it IC with canon, which would therefore make a strong foundation—for the pursuit of greater things and more 👀—and not have the clan just pop out of the blue 😊 it gives more leeway for more varied stories to tell, too! Want to rise above the ranks as the forerunners of the clan's enterprising aspirations? Only the very best of the best can join the Kamaitachi! Interested in warrior/assassin geisha and the art of coercive diplomacy? Perhaps the Ameonna will be of interest to you! Does the way of the blade and the art of war call to you? The Minobi exemplify those very traits! Do you find yourself wanting more benign, artistic, and political pursuits, or entrepreneurial management of businesses? The Yosuzume could be your thing! The main Yanaihara family members are also open for interested writers; let's discuss your ideas and we'll see how we can integrate them for the character! You can either: claim a preexisting character already listed in the lore claim a preexisting character's position and substitute them for your own new character make a brand new character entirely Either way, you are welcome to write with us! ❤️ Let us know if you wanna join us below or in a PM! 😊 . . . with ambition ardent enough to topple an empire.
  25. 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!
