Regaliours The OoC The year was unknown, as was the location but one could tell that it was early morning when the first scream rang out from the King's Palace ringing out over the entirety of Draweswood. Sadly though, on account of it being a public work holiday, no one was out on the streets and thus no one heard the scream. Shortly after, a dark, cloaked figure dived out of the King's balcony and plummeted down almost a hundred metres where it landed with a massive bang on top of the courtyard canopy causing a dent in the cover which further caved in causing the figure to fall further down into the courtyard inside a whirlwind of dust and debris. "Frickin' rusty...", he mumbled in his raspy voice as he picked himself up and straightened out his back before sighting a wooden door leading out of the dark courtyard. Krash...! The door blasted apart into a million splinters as the massive figure barreled its way out into the sunlight and charged straight across the open foyer straight at the black mare waiting near the front steps of the palace. "Easy as pie...!!", he grunted adding a little chuckle as he closed in on the mare. Whoosh...! A Whip swiped the figure off its feet at the last minute causing him to land on his chin with a grunt. Within seconds, figures surrounded this lone shadow from all sides, one of them retracting a whip into a socket in his gauntlet. "He stole the contract, what should we do...?", one of them spoke, questioningly looking at the others. "Leave him be, we'll take the contract and collect in his stead," another answered pointing at the dirty yellow piece of paper in the fallen figures grasp. "That's lowly. Our orders were to eliminate the Tyrant and report back to our King," a lady spoke. "We are all aware of that but this street thug has killed the tyrant already, we can't just ride back with smiles on our faces." "Damn him...!!" one of the figures cursed. He then approached the fallen person and ripping away his cloak, raised him up by his collar and looked him in the eye. "Our job is done. It's a pity we didn't do it though. Next time you try assassinating a King, don't die on the job." he cautioned. "Wha...?" the hired assassin grunted. "There's a poison coursing through your veins right now, your pupils are dilating like crazy. You'll go blind within seconds and then you'll suffocate to death." "Tha' madman, he pricked my wrist with 'is finger." "May you find piece in the next life..." The figures disappeared almost as silently as they came. "Help...!! Help...!!" he screamed away except there was no one out today. "Help...!!" Settings Regaliours is an RP set in a timeline where both medieval and steampunk elements come together in an open world. In a time when fake tyrants were taking to thrones all over the world, one of the good, virtuous kings, King Zeneth decided to form a secret order of Assassin-Knights known as Regaliours. These were men and women he personally trained to fight in ways that a noble knight would while also learning the trades of a highly skilled Assassin, gaining mastery over stealth and counter-strikes. They were noble, knowledgeable and quick on their feet and they had but a sole purpose... striking down the corrupt Kings in their own domains. Even as they carried out their task, Prince Aireth, heir to the largest Kingdom in the world has given out a contract on King Zeneth's life under his father's nose. Who will carry out Zeneth's death sentence...? What is Aireth's motive...? What will you, as the Regaliours do...? Your Role as a Regaliour Okay guys, that was the dramatic overview of the story, now for what Regaliours is all about. You will be playing as the Assassin Knights themselves who are very dynamic characters, both mentally and physically. They are strong, fast, silent when they need to be and incredibly intelligent. So you have much freedom while playing them. Do note that they aren't emotionless. They have as much emotion as you wish them to be. I would be playing King Zeneth wherever he is required, but otherwise, I'll be a fellow Regaliour. Now, a bit about the World itself. Regaliours can take individual contracts for minor Kings all around the World but do note this. Every story need not end with death. Just by listening around a little, you can find out a little backstory and then decide for yourself how you want to finish the contract. Major Kings are a different story. They usually have their own "guards", known as New Age Regaliours who have a different code from the Regaliours' own. You'll have to go together to dispatch these corrupt Kings. They are not accessible by means of contracts. You'll personally be handed these missions by King Zeneth. Steeds include horses, steam-bikes etc. You can go anywhere. I'll have a map up for that.
