The Hamlet, was always a small happy place, filled with people. Roses and daffodils lay across green grass that the cows grazed on. Centered in the middle of the the Hamlet, was a small pond. It was filled with golden fish and lily pads that float across the light blue water. The building were crafted from a gray stone and the roofs were made from a wheat thatching. Some of the more wealthy lived in wooden houses with stone foundations that had a red tiled roofs on top. Taverns, blacksmiths, and a shops were some of the only commercial business that can be of profit in this community. People love, live, and work. Life is simple the Hamlet, the days were filled with hours of work and social affairs. Farmers came and went with there bales of dry yellow hay. Blacksmith bang with hammers on the raw swords. The shopkeepers count their inventory. Such a simple life could drive someone insane, but what keeps these Villagers happy was the stories that the travelers told, of adventures, dragons, and treasures. Will you live the life of a Farmer, Blacksmith, Shop-keeper, or perhaps be a adventurous traveler with tales to tell? This is a fantasy slice of life. You can be any occupation you want that's in a village. If you want to just do a couple of post just by a adventure, a traveling merchant, or something like that. For people you want to being in the RP you can by a blacksmith, a baker, or anything really. Plot: All of the villagers are in a tavern in the Hamlet after a long day of work. They are telling stories about how they came to the Hamlet or how they made a living. Basically telling everyone there back-story. Then an adventure comes in with some news. When you do your first post please make it so your in the tavern. IC: https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/threads/the-hamlet-ic.96427/ Races Elf: These slender built humanoids are tall and have pointed ears. Elves are keen with nature and are skilled with bows and arrows. Elves are the most rare race and are from no kingdom, and are often travelers. In the Old Empire, the elves ruled but when the Old Empire fell the Elves crumbled and became close to a legend. Dwarfs: This short and stout race of proud miners are strong and durable. Dwarfs spend most of their time digging hole and mining ore. They are a uncommon race and are from the Kingdom of Oare. Dwarfs were the front line of the Old Empire and are great soldiers, but some came to a more simple life of shopkeeping and blacksmiths. Humans: These are the most boring of all the races of the world, they are proud and varied that do what they wish and follow their own path. They are the most common of all the races, and are from the Kingdom of Aron. The humans are a upstart race and founded they're nations from the ruins of the Old Empire. Humans are well rounded when it comes to military strength, production, and magic. Vlakte: A race of humans hailing from a desert region across the seas. They follow the serpent goddess Keket, and are quite an isolated people who have isolationist policies until recently. Three years ago, the King sent priests, warriors, and others across the lands in order to learn about other cultures, deeming their time of isolation from the rest of the world was long past. They are a highly religious people, and will not tolerate insults to their Goddess. At best, they are stalwart defenders of their faith. At worst, their Zealots who do not tolerate any polytheistic or other 'pagan' beliefs. They wholeheartedly believe their goddess, is the true goddess. Law, Order, and Peace fall in next in the pillars of their culture. The peoples themselves tend to be suspicious of most outsiders, but are also quite friendly and won't turn away a weary traveler should they need a bed. Just don't expect a warm reception until they grow used to you. Most of the commoners tend to be dark skinned from long days in the sun, while the priests and nobles have paler skin from spending their days being surrounded by lavishness in palaces. Orks: Orks are green skinned gruff figures. They are pure enemies to the Dwarfs and have warred with them since the dawn of time. Orks are war-like and are skilled warriors like the Dwarfs. Unlike the dwarfs though they are not good are crafting weapons, they use crude blunt weapons like clubs and maces. Compared to Dwarfs, Orks are in more of quantity then the Dwarfs. Orks are the ones responsible for the fall of the Old Empire along with the goblin hoards. Sylvan: Sylvan are a secretive race. They are an elemental species, Sylvan are made from leaves, wood, and plants. They are a newer race to appear they come from the Island of Grace. They had been isolated for centuries, but since the ships from the humans have found them they have been spreading to all the forest of the main land. The Sylvan are extremely passive and peaceful. Catfolk: Catfolk are rather mysterious they are from the midlands in the desert. They are furry all over and much cat. Catfolk are very sneaky and dexterous. They had never heard of the Old Empire, when it had existed they were far north. You see, they had migrated south to the desert to get away from their mysterious oppressors. Neko: Neko are a product of a Human and a Catfolk. They tend to not follow any path but yet travel the world in search of a purpose. Most races don’t like the Neko because of their appearance and the fact that they are a result of an unwanted relationship between a Human and Catfolk. This race is very rare since most are killed at birth. Fay: Commonly known as Fairy's, this race has lived for hundreds of thousands of years in forests, bartering with neighboring towns and city's. Only recently has the fey been exposing themselves, due to incredible trickish nature, and literal speech, and wide ranges of magic, they fey has made deals that has lead to many displeasures. Many has begun to speared apart from their community's, wishing to gain approval from other races, and by doing so, moving into small villages and even some city's. Naga: A very eccentric race of beast folk hailing from small provinces all over the world with no named kingdom to speak of. Their demeanor can range anywhere from joyful and upbeat to downright homicidal. With many strange rituals for even the most trivial of tasks, many races are confused by their actions. They have dozens of variations across the lands and different characteristics and traits that are used to tell them apart. Some say they are descended from dragons. Well, the Naga said so. Probably due to the small fire resistance their hard scales have, their habit of hoarding treasures and the tale that some Naga can breathe fire. Which is debatable considering some Naga are even known to have feathers and most know that dragons didn't actually possess feathers and no one really knows a Naga alive that actually breathed fire. Some are known for their excellent swimming and others for their hunting prowess with further proves that the Naga are widely diverse despite their name. They are sometimes target to racial slurs and have difficulty reforming their tribal ways into a more civil standing in society. All in all, a Naga is a fine addition to most societies and make great travelling companions due to their intense loyalty to those they call friends. Or not. Just depends on the Naga.
