Deep relationships, companionship, travel, adventure

Recommended Posts

So my last attempt to make a RP focussed on friendship and companionship has slowed down considerably, and I'm looking to start another so I actually have something to do around here (as suggested by @The Alexandrian). Hopefully one that will keep on flying until the entire story is complete. Basically I want a RP that isn't about some buffed up assassins/heroes/mercenaries after some treasure and one about less powerful, more regular beings, who are more invested in each other as friends and companions and their NPC friends and family. Perhaps their goal isn't a trinket or power but rather the safety and wellbeing of each other, or that of some NPCs. Heck, I want my PCs to make friends they can rely on in difficult times, like Harry Potter or something, and to face the evil together.

Does anyone else want that?

If so please hit me up. I'm probably looking for two other people. Maybe three if I have enough interest. I intend to play with Torie but haven't finalised the setting yet. It'll be small and intimate, like a small town or village, a single street in a city where the neighbours look out for each other, a trade caravan or the crew of a ship. Generally speaking the starting location is just a place to branch out from. When danger threatens we'll be on the move together!

So please let me know if you're interested:).

I already put Marian in with Danzilla's prophet faction thread since the other one seems to have died, I really was sad such a nice Roleplay ended before it really even began.

I could throw in another character if you still wanted me, most all of my characters are pretty underpowered for most threads..

This is really cool 😊 I love the idea of deeply focusing on character relationships, that's my jam 😍 If a slot opens up or anything, do let me know! 😄

@Ayumiand @PurplePanda, the other thread hasn't died. Please, let's continue with it if you're still keen! For the sake of not being dependent on your availability for both RPs I probably shouldn't have you here too. But I definitely want to keep RPing with you in the other thread!

For this thread I'm thinking of making a wilderness setting, with a small tribe working together against the elements, or some such. This was mostly inspired by @Scout22's character, as it seems to fit him. Maybe reindeer herders or something, or arctic fishermen/women. Would this interest people? I haven't figured out a menace yet.

Sounds cool! Are there still slots? You're looking for 2-3 people, right? 😊

So essentially an assisting a village sort of thing?

Here's what I've come up with:

The Tinui tribes are gathering together for the much anticipated wedding between the children of two rival kings. It is a glorious occasion that will mark the end of warfare and bloodshed. But it is also a dangerous time, with old enemies brought together.
The members of the Shinoki tribe are reindeer herders. They will travel the furthest and arrive last, with the intention of presenting gifts to the engaged couple and attending the wedding. The Shinoki tribe is only a minor tribe, and so any favour they can curry will greatly improve their status. Plus the kings are empowered by the gods and may bless their tribe with minor powers. But though they have no direct enemies they also have no great allies. Such a meeting will be especially dangerous for a tribe of so few. They had better make sure they stick together, and be ready for anything.

We'll start a few days out from the wedding venue, and all players are part of the Shinoki tribe. As tribes are usually isolated they must be self-sufficient, and so tribespeople usually have specialised roles within their tribe. For instance you might be a herder, a butcher, a tent maker or a healer. You could also be a hunter.

In order to join the RP you must describe your character and what role they have in the tribe. You don't need to be a tribal native, but your character must have a good reason for travelling with the tribe (the Shinoki tribe travels south and so has the most contact with civilisation, and 'civilised people).

Here's Torie's description:
Torie joined the Shinoki tribe because of their tendency to travel. She is looking to rejoin her own nomadic tribe of druid shape shifters and knows the two tribes tend to bump into each other frequently. However, when she heard there would be a wedding and a huge party far to thed north she agreed to tag along for the whole trip.
Being a giant tiger, Torie has an excellent nose and exceptional strength. She helps out with tracking animals on hunts and hauling the sleds of supplies. By default Torie is given the job of pulling the sled containing the large sled of gifts for the wedding (exotic animal skins, herbs, spices, perfumes, gems and precious metals as well as tools and weapoons made from metal, rather than the usual wood or bone).
As kind and gentle as Torie is she is also obsessed with food. Her druidic magic makes her constantly hungry and she cannot pass up eating something, particularly meat or dairy. For this reason she has a layer of blubber that puts hibernating bears to shame, and a belly to match. This makes her particularly useless at things that require speed, though her endurance is unusually robust.
Torie loves eating, having her fur brushed and listening to traditional stories.

 

That's It! Let me know if you'd like me to change anything or have your concerns, and post your characters! I'm looking for people who can post 2-3 times a week and will be committed to see the RP to the end.

Looking forward to playing with you!

So I have a guy for this, Azul Geiforn, who, as I said, has been dying for anything to do. I need to update him but haven't had much of a chance to play around with him. Overall he's a brawler, that's what he's good at other then running so perhaps, would it be alright to have him as say a scout and a guide as well as a pack mule based on his overall strength, size and speed considering he travels very lightly? If so I can make a quick bio on why he's traveling with the tribe.
