Well now, what have we here? A band of adventurers? And what world may this be? Hmm, well, I don't know. Let's just start with the quests, and see where it goes from there...
—This RP will be creating a world as it goes, based on the characters and the descriptions of places they go and people they meet. If a race, even humans, is not mentioned, it doesn't exist; if a form of magic isn't mentioned it doesn't exist; etc. The plot will hopefully develop itself as we go.
Note that this RP is designed such that every character must have a quest. This “quest” is a goal which the character is traveling the world and possibly working with or against other characters in order to achieve. It should be something specific, not “a better world”, and somewhat realistic, not “destroy the world in ten seconds”. It can be more than one thing—a list of things, that is—if you so desire. It should make sense with who your character is; it should be something they really want. They can be a thief looking to get rich, build up some money and live a secure life, or a cleric trying to fulfill a bunch of requirements (certain virtues or whatever) in order to ascend to a higher rank and come closer to their god. It can be something more personal, like avenging a dead brother, or less serious, like telling a certain joke to as many people as possible before dying. Try to be creative, and have fun with it.
A post or two will be reserved for information on the world, but at the beginning there is nothing to record.
Excess Note: This concept has been used previously, on a site very nearby this one, but this version will involve different players and characters, and thus result in a different world and story entirely. That's why it's subtitled "World B".
