It's natural that Humans would dominate the cast thus far, as they are the most populous race. I'm surprised less people are willing to play Dwarves; Tolkien did mould the Dwarves of most fantasy narratives, but I don't believe that to be a bad thing. Tolkien gave the Dwarves definitive characteristics that separated them from being just 'small humans'. I also like to think that I have given them enough history unique to my setting that anyone wishing to play a Dwarf would be able to play and experiment with. Being the second-most populous race, I'm actually hopeful that at least one Dwarf will join the cast.Woot another classical fantasy story!!!
now to understand this code...
Now i have one little question regarding race before i poke away at my keyboard.
I like variety and humans dominate the board. With one nosferyte, human half breed.
And i can't do dwarfs because Gimli has ruined me permanently in that *love the little sucker but all dwarfs tend to be like that thanks to Tolkien damn him!!*
So im thinking of making a Nosferyte. But being the kind of Rper i am the idea of a Nosferyte, Elf Halfbreed struck me. But i felt that i should ask first about that before i get all hyped about the idea of a blood sucking Bipolar Elf roaming the nearby woods.
Elves in any form is a no-go unless you can give me a really good reason via PM. Their 'race' is actually just a series of physical alterations caused by the magic of the island they live on, so I don't think there would even be a possibility of a half-Elf. The way I see it, they actually conceive Human babies, but the island's power affects the way they are formed in the womb. I imagine if two Elves ever left Falinstađ, they would birth a Human child.
As a side note, I'm not looking for any Nosferyte halfbloods as GreatWest is already playing a great one, and I want to give them space for Lucine to grow.
I will always be willing to accept Human characters. I'm potentially looking for one fullblood Nosferyte, but it's not a necessity given Lucine's lineage. And whilst I always encourage players to play things that interest them, I do think it would be ideal to have a Dwarf in the cast. You can also PM me with any alternate race ideas for discussion.
As long as it's a thorough adaptation, go for it. It would be good for you to continue using a character that you were invested in, but do make sure to really integrate him into the world of this roleplay. I think one of the key strengths of the cast so far is how much they delved into the background and tied their character into Tyrannia. It gives them a sense of reality and belonging, which I really like. I look forward to seeing the character.Alright so I have a character from an RP that up and died after a week or two that I really thought would keep on. But it didn't, if it were to be okay could I just adapt him to this?
And if that is alright I have to warn you, I'm active military currently going through schooling. So although my time is crunched a lot I tend to have enough time to get at least two to three posts in in any given week. Most of the time though it'd be safe to say I can get a post in every day if I manage my time well enough but I don't want to just straight up promise you that....
So it's up to you, being the GM. If you don't want me as a liability I get that fully and take no offense.
Your military duties do not concern me. In an ideal world, we would all be able to post whenever! But this is a fantasy. I will not be setting a strict posting regime; rather, the roleplay will move at a natural speed. If more people a posting quickly, it will move quickly: if it takes the majority a while to post, it will move slowly. In events where I feel it is moving too slowly I will timeskip where possible. You are more than welcome here.
Thank you so much! I went a long time without roleplaying, too. I came back to it a few months ago. You may feel a little rusty at first, but I'm sure that you will settle right back in easily. I'm sort of in a similar position in that I have not GM'd in a relatively long time, but it feels good to be back on the horse.This world looks so beautiful and has so much potential. It's been a very long time since I role played, especially on this site its changed so much! And no i'm not super old just trying to get back my glory days or anything (Kind of am in a way...but not old still) but, the wheels in my dusty brain are turning for this thread and for a paper I am writing on role playing in general and it would be great to join you all.
I only had time to skim over it as writing these responses took longer than I expected, and I have a train to catch! However it is looking really good and I'm both thrilled and flattered by how much energy and thought you are putting into the roleplay. Thank you and well done! What tier do you imagine Damian will reach during the RP?Just thought to put an update on Damian's spellbook. His support spell tree is more or less finished. His attack spell tree still needs work but as far as the RP is concerned it's more than enough to start. As I said before, feedback is always welcome!
