~Inn of the Kneeling Man~ IC : The Tavern | IwakuRoleplay.com Setting You're in a country of great rolling plains and mountains creating the walls of your world. You feel safe here, as if danger itself would stop at your mountain ranges and tiptoe through to it's final destination. Knights train for years for battles they'll never fight. Mages and Scholars study long extinct creatures and past wars as if to prevent future destruction. Hunters and gatherers have an almost druidic relationship to the environment, where animals will willingly sacrifice themselves and fruits of the earth grow in multitudes. The problem, it would seem, is the nature of intelligent beings to be wary of what grows in the shadows. This fear has caused the utopian society to grow xenophobic to all outsiders, especially the ones that come from the pits of darkness. Storyline You are in this world, whether it be by finding a way into the city and attempting to blend in or by having grown up in this town. You will begin in the tavern as an Elf or a Human, a Diplomat or a Knight of the Queen. Maybe you were cast down long ago, and must rely on the gold or offerings of others as a beggar. Maybe you entered this town with dark intentions or just hoped that a utopian society would make a good bragging right. No matter your choices, you will be in the Inn of the Kneeling Man for the reasons you choose. This is where our story will begin, and I anxiously await the newest patrons! Character Sheet & Rules 1. No God-modding or perfect characters. 2. Interact with each other, in one way or another. Even if it's because your characters don't get along, the more your build this story together the better it will be. 3. If you get your feelings hurt by someone in the game, please respect them enough to either message them about it or send me a PM and I can discuss it. 4. Have fun! I'm hosting this because I enjoy writing a story and having the people involved be as much a part of that process as I am. I set the stage, I give the props, but we develop the dialogue and performance ourselves (and frankly, pretty swords and environment mean nothing if the characters and story aren't interesting). Character Sheet Name: [No real rules here, try to avoid titles and nicknames. Develop those In-Game] Age: [Completely up to you, if you want to play a little kid or a man who is about to die, go for it] Race: [Elf or Human, personal preference and apply stereotypes if you wish] Sex: [No, preferably. This isn't a Libertine] Personality: [Brief description, I'd like for the players to learn about the other party members organically] Background: [Why are you in the Inn of the Kneeling King?] Appearance: [Picture please, but a physical description would be nice as well] Items: [If you're weapon savvy, if you're a spellcaster then a staff or spellbook maybe? Completely up to you, just make it reasonable. It doesn't make sense in this realm for everyone to be wearing a large pack to carry everything they'd ever need, for example.] Players: @Dakota K5 - Adrian Harlow - Knight - Human @ZellaKitty - Venna Seren - Bard - Elf @Azula - Leecia Moran - Princess - Human @CynderTheDragoness - Rowan Shadowmoon - Rider - Elf @NewKingofDrangleic - Xavier Dimitriaski - Spellsword - Elf @Saint Allison - Roger - Ruff Rider - Dog Signups are currently closed, but that doesn't mean I will never accept characters. We are in an everchanging world, and should one of the current players decide to leave then we will have more room for new people. I want you to play what you want to play and I will build the story to fit the group of people available, let's write our story! In-Character Thread is officially LIVE. This means the enactment of a few new rules. I don't want anyone to feel left behind in this story, the worst thing to me would be to be left behind and I don't want anyone to feel that way. For this first week, at least, I want no more than one post per character per day. This allows the people who may not being on the same time-schedule as others (such as myself, who gets online approx. 4am CST) to be a part of the storytelling process without being left behind. This also allows you as players to not feel pressured to write so much constantly. You've got a full day to come up with a response, but if you feel as players that you need more time, we'll figure something out. If you would rather have a set cycle as to the order of people or events, I'm open to it, but bear in mind that it may increase the pressure on you to create something if it's your turn. I wrote the first post, setting the stage. You can place yourself inside already or enter as you will. You can be one of the people staying in the Inn itself if you choose. You have the freedom to enter this world however you want, so please enjoy it. Thank you again, I'm excited to go on this journey with you.
