  1. CS page is this way OPEN SIGNUPS - Warriors of Farrinhigh, Sign Ups | IwakuRoleplay.com

    This is to be my third RP I'm hosting. And as I said before there is more to come. This is actually going to be my first fantasy RP... Ever... I'm basing it a bit of the elder scrolls saga, with my own ideas and twists. For example the race names are going to have different names and other things and some of them won't even take part. It's also not going to be INHERENTLY skill based but they will be submersivly existent. In short, skills are a character/Race thing more than a gameplay thing. Each race in this game has their own history as well, but that's going to take time for me to make. Also mind you that this is a FANTASY role play, and since its inspired by the elder scrolls games needless to say it's midevil themed. This role play will also have factions as this role play takes place in an age of war, there will be two of them... Needless to say it's good vs evil, and to make it so each faction has something to do not the home providences of each race has chosen a side of the war yet. Once I get a good number of players interested I'll post the CS thread, in the mean time ask me any questions you have. But here are a few answers to questions that I think I know are coming up...

    Q&A:

    Q: Are there going to be beast races in this game?

    A: Yes, there are currently 4 beast races and there are more planed. The current four are... The Reptilian Saurens, the Big Cat like Krens, The Harpies, and the wolf like Settars. There is also a 5th race that is human in appearance but has animals body parts (only ears, horns, and tails. Nothing beyond) known as the Fawns.

    Q: Are orcs Related to elves in this game? Are elves and orcs even in this game?

    A: there are four different races of elf in this game, orcs ARE in this game but are NOT classified as an elf.

    Q: how many Characters can we have?

    A: So long as you can keep track of them you can have as many as you want.

    Q: Do all the races have their own Providence?

    A: Yes.

    Q: how far back dose History Go?

    A: 3,000 years give or take. Or at least that's what I have planned.

    Q: How many Playable Races are there?

    A: I don't have a number yet, but enough to give players options.

    The List of Races (WIP)

    Humans- This race Lives in the providence of whelmar, The capital is The Emerald Castle. Humans have no specialties but the same goes for their weaknesses. Humans were the founders of the Guilded Alliance and typically respect all races as eaquals.

    Night Elves - One of the Four Races of Elves of Ferrinhigh, Night Elves are the founders of The Oblivion Armada.

  2. Some odd questions people are asking.

    I'll consider. Say, are there any Oriental Races? Is it possible for me to suggest races?
     
  3. you mean if the RP is going to focus mostly on one race? Not really no, there are a few races that have made their mark in history like the Saurens, humans, and orcs. But for the most part I'm going to try and make sure each race gets some action.

    Yes you may suggest a Race, might actually help build this world I'm Trying to create.
     
  4. No, as in, Oriental.

    The races you lean towards to are Western-based. Are there any Eastern-based ones?
     
  5. If I can find any that appeal to me there will be. One of the gods in the game is based of Raiden though so a least their religion will have some variety.

  6. I might have a certain degree of interest, but whether or not I join will depend upon the finalised version of the OOC. Also, like Crow, I'd like a few eastern-based races too. Western-style fantasy races are all essentially identical to each other except for visual appearance and I find them incredibly one-dimensional and generic. Oh look, a high elf with a high magic skill. That's a surprise. Oh look, a Wood Elf that's good at archery. What's the difference between the two species? Basically nothing. They have almost the same history and abilities except that one has a higher MAT stat and the other has a higher bow proficiency.
     
  7. Well, Harpies are from Greek mythology so that's one race that is eastern. The Saurens are based of Dragonborn from Norse mythology so that's two. And I have plans of adding another beast race based of the Xaiolin monks, along with the Water Imps of Japanese Mythology, and of course fairies. So that already is Five races based of mythology from the east. I'm also up for suggestions for races if any one has any.
     
  8. Eastern means Japan, China, Indonesia, India... places like that. Norway and Greece both class as western.
     
  9. Alright some race ideas based on eastern mythology:

    Kitsune - fox demon (a must have when it comes to eastern races, really :P)
    Rakshasa - earth spirit (a demon-like creature from Indian mythology)
    Tengu - goblin-like angels of dubious origin.
     
  10. I see, well like I said. There will be some races based off eastern mythology and I am up for suggestions. In fact Crow said they wanted to make one. Still waiting for it though.
     
  11. Ling - a fully-beast race with four different varieties that they can mature into. These four varieties resemble the four Guardian Beasts - Byakko, Suzaku, Genbu and Seiryuu. The King of this race resembles a Fanron.
     
  12. The Krens remind me of Hunter and the other Cheetahs in the Spyro games. Along with the Thunder Cats.
     
  13. The Krens have the appearance of one of five different big cats. Lions, Tigers, Lepards, Pathers, and cheatas. They are the kajiit of the game in other words. I take it you are interested?
     
  14. Yes. I am interested.
     
  15. Good to know. I'm am still working on lore for each race but it's going to take time for players to gain interest any way so I'll keep brainstorming.

    EDIT: I am right now working on the race list. If you have suggested a race please refine it so I can update it properly.

  16. Hmm, allow me to leave my interest here, looking forward to seeing more as info is created.
     
  17. Great to know, once I have all the race info done and get a few more people I'll post the CS page.
     
  18. I'd totally love to join in on this.
     
  19. Great, I just updated the race list but there are still a few more to fill out. But once they are all done I'll post the CS page. I have a lot of thinking to do for some of them but I'm sure I'll come up with something cool.

    EDIT: Just Five more races and I'll make the CS page. Not to long now guys
