  1. Main Info
    Title:
    What Lies Beneath
    Genre: Fantasy,
    Technological Level: Equivalent to Renaissance Era (14th - 17th century Earth) with added Magic, Magi-Tech, and some supernatural entities
    Rating
    : Explicit or Extreme (There'll be a lot of fighting and some sexual scenes, Innocent is a definitely not a choice)
    Lore Background: The kingdom of Remrose, a strong prosperous nation led by King Xander the XIII. Fertile land, strong military, and high level of technology, Remrose has it all, however Xander still hungers for more, his greed slowly overtook his wisdom as he sets his eyes on the neighboring small Kingdom of Caen. He had been planning the invasion for years, secretly developing an ace card in the form of a secret weapon... a woman named 'Elysium' locked inside a dungeon-research facility as a test subject to harness the latent power inside her.

    Of course, Caen suspects about Remrose's suspicious actions over these past few years and had thus sent their best spy, Katarn Nachthimmel, to gather as much information as he could about Remrose's plans, then return to Caen. He got wind of a human research facility in the remote mountain-city Daniar, north of Remrose, it is there where their story began...

    Alright then! Let's discuss away! Any ideas or comments or critiques? Post em here!

  5. Oh, I will be playing as Katarn, the hero of the thread, while Elidy plays Elysium, the heroine for this 1x1 thread we're having. :)

    @IllustriousElidy

    Nice! I'm liking her already, I can provide Ely with a picture if you'd like, just tell me if there's anything you want help with. :)

    Also, I noted in your resume that Combat is one of the genres you don't like. :) This thread's going to have a lot of fighting due to the nature of the plot, however, I can adapt to your preferences, just tell me what you are comfortable and not comfortable with, and where do you draw the line, ok?
     
  6. OH I thought this was a partner request, I'm dumb, forgive me
     
    • You Get a Cookie You Get a Cookie x 2
  7. Daww, it's ok, here I give you a cookie as appreciation for honoring us with your interest. :)
     
  8. Well, I don't like it because I'm no good at it. Haha but that's mainly 1x1 combat. I can do some fight scenes, but be prepared for some not so fancy writing. :p
     
  9. Not a problem. Highly looking forward to your reply. ;)
     
  10. When you find me a picture, let me know. And I'll finish my cs later if you don't mind. I'm always bad at those. :p

    So I'll get a reply cranked out tomorrow hopefully.
     
  11. I have the perfect picture for her, I will give it once I got hold of my PC.

    Sure thing! CS is optional anyways. Duly noted, post when you feel right.
     
  12. I found a couple of pictures for Ely based on the traits you made, now I don't know about your taste in character art, so I gathered 3 pictures with different level of realism. Hope you like one of them!
