Okay, so this is the Out Of Character thread for the Roleplay "Desperate Times". Here's a link to the IC. Story Intro (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Story Intro (open) Story Intro (close) It's the year 2676 in the 5th Age of Skyfall and the land has been in relative peace since the fall of the great Necromancer, Nôdd-uun, and the end of the 4th Age. Once the damage wrought by Nôdd-uun's pestilence had been repaired, the alliance which had been forged to fight against him quickly disintegrated, with mutual distrusts between the different races returning and old quarrels rekindling, leading the realms back into almost complete isolation from one another. Now, more than 2 millennia later, a new evil is surfacing which will prove to be the greatest threat Skyfall has ever faced and her peoples must put aside their grievances and stand united once more, or face annihilation. Each race's commitment must be absolute; every resource must be utilised if they're to stand a chance of survival and no possibility can be overlooked. Desperate times call for desperate measures... The Plot So Far Intro A demonic invasion has begun and the different races of Skyfall need to pull together to fight it off, or all of them will fall. An old Orc [Rogdush] (Dedtoo)* knows of a legend about the necromancer Nôdd-uun's apprentice from over 2 millennia ago [Vinthus] (Me). He believes he still resides in the Dead Land and that with his help they could match the invasion's power, so he makes the most of an opportunity when a Human female [Letitia] (EquinoxSol) arrives looking for help: he suggests they attempt to find the Necromancer, and try to persuade him to help in their plight. Things Kick Off The pair made their way to The Dead Lands and stumbled upon a Half-Elven Prince [Chand] (Demon Queen) who was forced to flee his home after the Demons attacked, razing it to the ground. Meanwhile, an Imp [Knariit'ash] (also Me) has been following the Human, intrigued by her actions. Once the Imp crossed the border into the Dead Lands, Vinthus felt its presence and his hatred for Demons which he inherited from his master came into full bore, causing him to set out in the Imp's direction, which resulted in him discovering the unlikely trio. Rogdush asked the necromancer if he would come to their aid and he agreed, on the condition that Rogdush prove himself by killing the Demon who's presence he felt. Once Rogdush killed the demon, the four of them set out to the Orc city, in order to prepare it for the coming assault. As they left the Dead land, Letitia announced she would be heading to her city to encourage her people to move, and Vinthus suggested showing Rogdush a little of his magic. I will try to keep updating this with new sections as the plot progresses, to summarise what is happening, but I would encourage everybody to read the posts to get a better feel for the story :) * Legend: [IC name], (OOC name) If anybody who would like to join could post in this thread describing the type of character they'd like to be and the role they'd like to play in the story, that'd be great =D [rainbow](We REALLY need some characters on the Demon's side!)[/rainbow] Places to be filled (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Places to be filled (open) Places to be filled (close) Some possible character places to be filled include: Invading forces - Arch Demon (possibly taken) - Demon General - Demonic warrior of some description Defending Forces - Human/ Elven/ Orcish General/ King, etc - Warrior/ Mage of some description (Perhaps a character in a neutral postion?) Feel free to create your own character to fit a position not mentioned here, and even to introduce a race other than those suggested, but please make a post outlining your idea(s) and await a response before jumping into the RP, thank you! RulesHere are a few simple rules I'd like everybody to keep to :) - If you'd like to join this RP (and please feel free to, however far along we are!), please make a post in the OOC thread, describing your proposed character and the kind of role you'd like to play in the story. - Please keep all OOC statements in the OOC thread, whether they're to do with possible plot directions or simple messages to other RPers. On a related note; if you have ideas regarding major plot decisions, please post it/them in the OOC so that others can have their say. - Please include a character sheet in your first IC post, preferably wrapped in [ spoiler ] tags, outlining basics about your character such as race, gender, personality, preferred fighting styles, or anything you feel is important to know. - No God-Modding - Just make your posts: as long or short as you feel you need to, to portray what you're trying to; don't worry about your post being too short or too long. As long as it's long enough that your contribution has been portrayed and it's short enough that it's all relevant, it'll be fine :) - With regards to magic, I don't want to restrict people too much, but I'd like it to be a little more complex than just "I'm shooting a fireball out of nowhere" kind of stuff - I'd like it to be more of an art, which takes precision and discipline. See this post for a vague idea of what I mean, though don't feel as if that is the only way you can use magic - just try to steer away from making it too "easy". - HAVE FUN! What sparked this RP (Move your mouse to reveal the content) What sparked this RP (open) What sparked this RP (close) This Roleplay came about because I recently did one of Kitteh's character challenges and I actually quite liked the necromancer character I created, so I posted here asking if anybody would be interested in RPing with him and now here we are! If anybody's interested, you can see the challenge here :) Thanks for your time =D!
