How 'bout it?

#1 Post by Extorio » Wed Nov 24, 2010 5:39 pm

Mainly because Fight School has begun to slow down dramatically and I think a lot of the cast have given up, I've decided to return to my Dark Fantasy roots.

This in no way means that Fight School is over, just that I need an outlet for my more Fantasy-esque ideas.

Influences for this RP draw heavily on Lord of the Rings and Castlevania.

Here's the idea:

The world is going through a Medieval type era. For as long as man has existed, there has also existed creatures of evil: Werewolves, Vampires, Trolls, Goblins etc. But, there has always been protection for everyday men. Village defences such as wooden walls and gates have normally been enough to keep out these creatures but at times when travel between villages and cities is necessary, brave knights have offered their protection. The Order of the Blessed protect the people of the world from monsters of the night.

The Order is divided into different sub-sections and live within various monasteries located around the land. Up until a year before the events of this RP, they had been able to deal with most threats effectively and save many lives. However, things have changed.

A year before the RP begins, light vanished from the sky, leaving the land in a perpetual night. The creatures began to multiply insanely quickly, leaving the Order unable to fully deal with the new threat posed.

Here's where you come in. The Order's main headquarters has just been attacked directly, an event that hasn't happened in over 1,000 years. After repelling that attack, the Head of Templars finds out that all other headquarters were attacked at the same time, showing that these creatures have realised the threat the Order poses and have decided to do something about it. Your character will be placed in a team of Templars and Preists who are to journey to find out why this darkness has cursed our land and to put a stop to it.

Basic overview of character types:
Templar's are divided into Swordsmen and Archers.

Swordsmen, as their name suggests, are the most proficient with blades, not necessarily swords. Axes, lances, swords etc are these guys' main weapons.

Archers, trained with the bow. They have extreme accuracy with ranged weapons. Longbows and Crossbows are the kind of weapons these guys use.

Priests are the mages of the group. They cast holy spells against the creatures to either attack or defend. They know the most about creature lore and what their weaknesses are.

Both Priests and Archers have had basic training in swordsmanship. Not enough to take on a swarm of werewolves or something but they could hold their own against one or two.

That's basically my idea. I'll develop plot using in-game characters and notable creatures of fame: Dracula, Dr. Frankenstein, Frankenstein's monster, Satan etc.

Just let me know if you're interested, thanks guys.

I have been looking for a Realistic Medieval RP. without magic.. or trick magic.
but this might suffice. I will post tomorrow again.

This thing all things devours:
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats high mountain down.

Just refine your character ideas for now guys. I don't want you to put a load of effort into a filling a character sheet and then have to change it due to the limitations I have in the RP.

Give me till friday! Maybe even tomorrow.

Blessed weapons and artefacts will exist but won't be accessible until later on in the RP.

However, if you desperately want to have one, PM me and idea or something and we'll have a chat.

So, when can we expect a OOC instead of an Interest check?

I've nearly finished it.

But I'm hesitant to put it up because I have coursework in for Monday and this RP will probably dominate my life.

I'm a waster anyway, I'll finish it then put it straight up. :D
