  1. I have created a roleplay where the characters are played by the writers but the consequences or outcome will be written by the manager. I will also describe the environment as well as important matters that are lying in the spot. Every NPC will be played by me, replying to your questions and actions to them.

    The World is a world generally filled with steam powered machines as well as a slight of magic. We have our own magic system and law in which the players must understand and follow. Written below are the details of the plot.


    Please ask @Shade_XY or @Sir Pinkleton for any inquiries.

    Here is the OOC.

    Assaulter - Sir Pinkleton
    Defender - Majem
    Medic - Einws
    Arcane Artist - none yet
    General Worker - Majem & Sir Pinkleton


    In ancient times, there was only one language spoken. The meaning absolute and their words are power. The power of the writings of runes are no different. Words when spoken and pentagrams when drawn with intent, reality as well as ethereal matter would bend. But to speak even a word, spirit and soul is consumed. Talking is taxing, even life threatening. Without soul, a person dies. Accidents occurs constantly and chaos follows. Out of fear, some chose silence over speech. Thus, other symbols and languages that does not require soul to speak are created. As time passes, many of the words and symbols of power are forgotten. Whatever words that survived the passing of time is presently considered spells, curse, and enchantments.

    In ancient times, a smith lived with passion for swords. To him, swords are pieces of art, beautiful to his eyes, attractive to his soul. He crafted swords with the constant changing weather as his inspirations. He spoke to them as he crafts them. He gave each swords names in the ancient words and wrote on them runes of power for every kind of weathers. His love and attention slowly gave the swords soul as well as amazing abilities. Each swords have different names. No one knows the real numbers of swords the smith created. In the present day, the story of the smith and his swords are considered only to be a myth and legend. In reality, the smith did exist. His swords; The Swords of Weathers, are scattered throughout the world.

    In the present day, the planet is filled with dangerous animals. The seasons are ever changing. Mysterious magics are abundance. Steam powered machinery are used in daily lives. Nonetheless, the planet have sights to be admired.

    In Grufford, a city with towering buildings, stood a guild where combat efficient warriors and arcane artists come to acquire jobs.

    In the main lobby where people linger, on the guild board, amongs many other papers, a flier advertising jobs with great payment was posted. It was an escort , aid, and protect quest. The destination is an area out of the kingdom's borders reach and back. The position of defender, assaulter, medic, arcane artist, and general worker is open. The client was one Doctor Weaselhoffer.

    Doctor Weaselhoffer is a well known person with the title of noble and lord bestowed on him by the king of the kingdom of Telmark for the deed of the creation of cures for multiple types of diseases and poisons. He owns a massive estate in the inner city and is knowledged in medicine as well as alchemy. He is also known for his solitary behavior and is rarely seen out of his mansion. Although he was a doctor, his quest in pursuit of knowledge is never ending.

    A while ago, Doctor Weaselhoffer secretly managed to gain an old map marking an ancient temple. With the map was a letter enlightening the reader of one of the Swords of Weathers; a sword capable of bending the atmosphere according to the element of the swords. Unfortunately, the location marked was highly dangerous, rumored to be filled with colossal carnivores of many kinds. He needed strong and skilled men for this job, but the party needs to be small.

    _______________________

    Since there are many ideas and varieties of magic thought up by people of the world. I would like for only one type of magic logic to be used.

    I have an idea for magics that I would like everyone to understand and respect.

    I should brief you on my fiction of magic. For starters, spells are casted through spoken words of power or written symbols of power which are derived from ancient forgotten language and runes. It is similar to the fantasy fiction of knowing ones true name would cause the one to ultimately follow the order of the one who speak their name. This is the reason for why intelligence is needed in casting spells. Words and runes are need to be learned and memorized. Sentences needed to be created and pentagrams need to be drawn. The more powerful the spell, the more words and runes is needed. But by simply chanting and drawing the spell would not work. Will is needed to guide the spell. The meaning of the words must be known or else the spell will not happen.

    What power spells of sorcerers are not muscles or stamina or even chi, but by spiritual energy. There are spiritual energy reserve in ones body. Overexertion of the body's spiritual energy may lead to death. That is why some sorcerers store spiritual energies in gems. Gems can be crushed and made into body tattoos, to make it easier for sorcerers to move around.

    Spiritual energy is like oxygen in the air but it is thin, which makes it difficult to be used directly. It is inhaled through the pores of the skin, slowly replenishing ones spiritual energy. It can also be condensed into liquid form called ether. Consuming ether can instantly replenish ones spiritual energy in a large amount. A person can get addicted to ether as is a kind of drug. Withdrawal of ether is similar to other drug addiction withdrawal.

    Staves and wands are a sorcerer's catalyst. It is easier to guide a spell with them. But an experienced sorcerer can still cast spells without the use of catalysts, only not as easy.

    One might wonder why a sorcerer don't simply light a person on fire from the inside or simply chant a person to die instantly. The answer is simply because they can't. To effect a living creature directly is impossible without knowing the true name of the creature. Same goes for using another person's spiritual energy.

    Whatever items that belongs to a living creature, that item cannot be taken with the use of direct magic. It could be taken with indirect magic such as raising the earth to move the item towards you. This is because the item is considered claimed and is one with the living creature.

    This is my fictional theory on magic that I would like everyone to understand and respect.

    Spiritual energy are like fuel. They power the spells like the steam powers the machinery.

    Other than the ancient language and runes, there will be other types of magic as well. Below are explanation for druids.

    Druids are classes that are associated with the nature. Nature is a living matter and it chooses their druid. Not everyone is capable of being a druid. Only one with devotion and sovereign love for nature are bestowed with the ability to bend nature. The flora and fauna moves to protect and aid their druid in battle. Druid powers are double edge blades that would protect nature as well as harming it as it consumes nature of its health and vitality. They draws power from the land around them. Overuse of these power can potentially kill the very thing they sought to protect.

    _____________________

    The reason being most elves are immortals, their strength in magic would be considered overpowered. Therefore, players are prohibited from choosing an elf as their character.

    Other than arcane artist, you can apply for the post of assaulter, defender, as well as medic. An arcane artist can also double as assaulter.

    If you have read up to this point and is interested in joining, have fun and write the interview of your character below.

    Your character is called for an interview. The place of the interview in a private office chamber of the guild. The interviewer was one fine looking woman dressed in office wear with hair rolled into a bun. He eyes are green and he makeup is splendid. In the seat, she sat with one leg places on top of the other. A smile creased her luscious lips in a friendly manner.


    "What job are you applying for?

    "Why did you apply for this job?"

    "What skills do you have?"

    "How long have you been what you are?"

    "Are you willing to risk your life for our client if we hire you?"

    "Why do you think we should hire you?"

  2. I'm just going to wing it for now.

    The voice that speaks from behind the mask is quiet and sounds incredibly coarse and rough. The words spoken are few and are straight to the point as if to almost avoid speaking. Not only is it quiet, there are many pauses in the slow speech as the desert like dryness of the voice seems unphased by the woman. The voice leaves a mask that covers the figures face with the exception of the eyes. The rest of the body is coated as well.

    "What job are you applying for?
    "...Arcane Artist."

    "Why did you apply for this job?"
    "For many reasons... Exploration... Personal gain... Et cetra. And perhaps some interest in my employer..."

    "What skills do you have?"
    "...I have studied the Arcane for many moons... I carry a deep rooted knowledge of history and lore, and find passion in it...
    If of any interest, I can read the stars and land so that maps may be made... And finally..." The figure gestures to the sharply curved knife on his hip.


    "How long have you been what you are?"
    "Countless years... Too many, perhaps."

    "Are you willing to risk your life for our client if we hire you?"
    There is a pause, and the eyes simply glare at the woman. "If I was not willing to risk my life... I would never have pursued my work or this job..."

    "Why do you think we should hire you?"
    The figure seems most interested in speaking for this, adjusting himself in the seat. "I get things done. I am not some buffoon that walks the first path given... No, I walk the best path that leads to my... Profit. Men such Doctor Weaselhoffer and I share common interest... We pursue the world around us... It is best not to dwell on petty morality when the branches to immortality are just waiting to be... Grasped." There is a distinct sound of the clearing of his throat from the figure. "...You should hire be because of my drive for this work...And desire to make any effort for it to be done."
