    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.

    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.

  6. Name: Tev-Nahgosaitarakano... Uhhh Just call him Tev. Lol

    Age: 32

    Gender: Male

    S-o: Heterosexual

    Occupation: Shopkeeper

    Personality: Eccentric, long winded, easily confused by normal conversation of other races, painfully upbeat, always trying to pawn off his wares, will do almost anything to make coin, caring to his friends and a bit oblivious to danger.

    Background: Hatched in a small Naga village near a volcano, Tev was raised to be a warrior. Large even by Naga standards and scales as black as coal set him on a fast track to eventually challenge the chief for dominance. Growing exceptionally quick as most Naga do their first few years as life, he quickly became an invaluable warrior amongst his people. As he began growing his horns, he became the object of affection for many potential mates. After settling with a fellow warrior Naga, they produced an egg. Unfortunately, this egg was delivered with a small crack. A flaw that his tribe deemed unfit to hatch and his wife flew into a rage and tried to discard it. Tev challenged his wife to keep the egg and they were pit to fight to the death. Slaying his wife for his unborn hatchling, he quickly fled his home with his young and became an adventurer. Learning most of the human language and developing his own personality that was frowned upon in his tribe. He travelled for years with different races and encountered many battles and trials, all the while protecting his precious egg. Knowing his egg was due to hatch in a few years, Tev gave up adventuring and placing his young in danger to settle and pursue his next dream of becoming wealthy. Opening a shop in the little hamlet he calls home, he is well known for his odd ways and speech pattern but is usually accepted except by the odd adventurer here and there. Still holding his egg dear to him and preparing for it's hatching, he keeps up with his shop daily and provides labor for residents for the proper amount of coin.

    Staying or visiting: Staying.

    Extra appearance details: A tall, broad shouldered, muscular Naga with coal black scales, slit irises with blue corneas, about a dozen six inch or so horns protruding from his head arched towards the back, large teeth protruding from his upper jaw and blue patches of scales around his eyes. He wears a red sweater similar to an innkeepers and tan pants with adventurer boots. His long tail protruding from the back of his pants is slightly crooked at the end. His egg is mostly a light blue with flecks of black and a small crack running from the top and halfway down that he carries with him near constantly as most Naga do.
     
  7. very nice all accepted
     
  8. Note: Kir is rather tall for a dwarf standing at 5'1", his hair is at waist level and braided with a think Iron band at the end his beard is down to his chest and is braided as well with a bronze band at the end of it, as he is a dwarf who both toiled in mines and was also a solider plus with being a smith now makes Kir very stocky some say he is so strong that he can crush rocks in his hands but no one had been able to confirm that and Kir has never said one way or the other.

  10. That's what i'm doing.

  12. Name: Elsa Buhrer

    Age: 20

    Race: Dwarf

    Gender: Female

    Sexual Orientation: Straight

    Occupation: Trader

    Personality: Laid-back and fun-loving. She doesn't take her job as seriously as she should, as she's more interested in trade as amusement than as a livelihood. She sometimes ends up pushing too hard for a deal that greatly favours her, causing some of her dealings to fall apart. She still manages to stay afloat somehow.

    Background: Elsa was the youngest child and only daughter of a dwarf trader. All her brothers were soldiers, so when their father was gravely injured during an attack on his caravan and could no longer work, the responsibility of taking over the business fell to her. On her twelfth birthday, she started her apprenticeship in the merchant's guild her father was a part of. She was hardly ever serious about her studies, and was much slower to learn than the other apprentices. People usually enjoyed dealing with her more than the others though, thanks in no small part to her outgoing personality. To no one's surprise, Elsa decided to just stay in some hamlet and bring goods over to the merchant guild to trade at her leisure instead of travelling with a caravan.

  13. Need help with that code stuff? Might be helpful to organize it a bit you know. I could do it for you if you want~

    Anyways, are those the only gods and stuff? I was thinking my adventurer person is from a distant land that only follows one god instead of a pantheon of them. She was sent out by the king in a sort of pilgrimage to learn more about the world and stuff.

    The map doesn't show any desert regions, which is kinda what I'm imagining.

    eh, maybe I'm over thinking things a bit. I tend to do that with world/lore building.
     
  14. Chinoe (open)

    Name: Chione Msrah
    Age: 20
    Gender: Female
    Race: Human (Vlakte Origin)
    Sexual orientation: Bisexual, but vows prevent her from pursuing...romantic, relations. Getting her to break them would be extremely difficult.
    Occupation: Traveling Priest/Scholar/Adventurer

    Personality: Ever calm and calculating, Chione is not exactly someone would consider to be very friendly at first. Stern, serious, and a little rude. She is blunt, and does not shy away from the truth, even to the point of hurting others feelings. In all, most would consider her to be quite...unfriendly. She doesn't tolerate failure, and doesn't take no for an answer and will carry on stubbornly in all her endeavors.

    Under that exterior, however, is just a slightly troubled girl daunted by the rather...huge task the king of her land tasked her with. She is rather vulnerable to the opinions of others, often turning to anger or scorn if she feels as though she has been offended. However, once she warms up to someone she becomes quite friendly, often showing her affection through small little gifts and other small gestures.

    However, one thing that gets her in a good mood, is talking of her travels and especially of her home. Though she is rather young, she has been travelling for three years, and has quite a few stories to tell. She also enjoys hearing the travels and experiences of others.

    She likes reading and writing, and carries a journal with her at all times, often writing in it of her experiences.

    Background: Chione hails from a distant, sand covered land. She traveled the ocean to reach where she is now, and has been travelling this continent for three years, ever since she left home with a task the king gave her. Go out, and explore the world, spread the word of their goddess Keket, and help those she can. Eventually, she is to return and tell the king and court of her stories and experiences.

    As such, when she first set foot on the land here, she became an adventurer. At first she had a rather difficult time adjusting, but with the help of some friends she managed. Together, they traveled across the land as adventurers, slaying evil beasties and the like. Her water and healing magic proving to be quite useful in their endeavors. Eventually, the four of them broke up after the death of one of them. The trio split, and each has been travelling alone since. Each of them blames the others for the death of their comrade, and is unlikely to reconcile with the other two without a little persuasion.

    Appearance: Chione usually dresses in light, easy to move in clothes, that some might consider a bit too revealing. But as it is a cultural thing, she cares not for peoples misgivings about her dress. However, she has taken to wearing a black cloak over her rather...loose dress. Something she does not like wearing, but understands the need to...not stand out so much when in villages/towns. Not to mention she gets rather cold and absolutely loathes cold weather, preferring the warm sun.
    Appearance (open)

    Staying or visiting: Visiting, for now. May be convinced to stay for awhile. She could be convinced to stay in town for a bit.

  15. All apps accepted.
     
  16. Awesome, then. I'll get to work on a post.

    You said an adventurer comes in with news at the tavern, what kind of news is that exactly? Dragons attacking? Undead roaming the countryside? Deadly ferrets infesting the water supply? (wait what?....)
     
  17. Just some news. Maybe you found a dungeon and you need help, but I just got out of school and I didn't get to post yet, so let me do that ok :D
     
  18. Ferrets?! Oh lord.
