Looking for partners for a fantasy/Sci-fi roleplay
« on: November 23, 2011, 03:33:54 PM »
Yeah, so I sort of have this idea, but I really want input on it, let people help decide how it goes.

But my basic idea is a medieval fantasy roleplay, played out in a nation where all different species of the world coexist. Elves have their own district, dwarves have theirs, orcs their own too. And of course humans have their own, even though theirs is bigger due to the nation originally being human.

as for the Sci-fi, I've been in the mood to do a star wars roleplay based around "The Cold War" which is the timeline in the new MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic. I'm am very much open for suggestions, though I do have a few ideas if someone is interested, but lacks a theme or a plot

Depending on how many people join, I'm very flexible, also if you want races to be added. Topics like interracial relations and hostility can be discussed too. As I said, I'm very open.

Ooh! Politics and intrigue! Count me in! I think this can quickly get complicated though since it's such a heavy and complex topic.

Indeed, hence why I think we need a little more people, though we could start, and leave this as a sort of signup and OOC discussion thread

cool, then I think we should start by describing our characters here, before starting a new thread.
 I'll start out, and I'll set up a skeleton by which you, and any who follow in here can explain your character by.

Name: Toshiro of the hidden blades
Age: 25
Race: Half Human, half Elf.

Normal Occupation: Toshiro is a mercenary by trade, having been trained his childhood in warfare and combat by his adoptive father, a dwarf named Riggs. Through work, Toshiro have also had to learn the trade of playing an escort, in the borderline prostitutional sense of the word.

Allegiance: Toshiro lives in the elven quarters of the city, preferring to be with the calm and creative elves, rather than the loud noisy human districts. His house is small, yet highly decorated, having belonged to his deceased mother. He is not slow to act if his people is in danger, often times stepping up if any of the other races act up in his district.

Appearance: Toshiro is tall, even for his kind, standing 2 meters and 12 centimeters tall. When looked upon, one would not think him a warrior, his body thin yet acutely trained for combat, all his muscles toned to perfection, without bulking up. His clothes consists of extravagant robes in all the colours of the rainbow. Underneath these robes is a silvery elven armour of the highest quality, light and easily hidden. His ears are pointy, showing his half elf blood, yet his face lacks the fairer qualities of the elves, while though still being breathtakingly beautiful by human standards, completely devoid of scars. His eyes are amber, and his hair is like flowing silver.

Personality: Surprisingly easygoing , he is more than happy to tell any tale from his past. A good friend Toshiro is willing to do just about anything to help out a friend in need, going so far as to sell his body if needed to pay off a friends debt. Strangely unable to hold alcohol, he gets easily drunk and usually behaves strangely.

Background: Toshiro is the adoptive son of the dwarf Riggs, a good friend of his deceased parents. His parents died in racial uprising when he was 3, an experience that still haunts him. He grew up as a travelling mercenary, learning swordsmanship from when he was young. At the age of 15 a female member of his mercenary band noticed his body, and charm, convincing him to learn the art of seduction.  The title “of the hidden blades” hails from his first royal assignment where he was assigned to protect the king. The king was impressed by the sheer amount of swords, daggers, and knives hidden within his robes.

Special abilities and skills: A master swordsman, Toshiro is among the greatest blade wielders in the entire realm. He is also a skilled cook, having been largely unable to eat the meat filled foods of his adoptive father, due to his sensitive elven stomach. A skilled escort, he has great experience with charming and seducing people of both genders.

Name: Lady Sofia Moreaux
Age: 32
Race: Human

Normal Occupation: The best way to describe Lady Sofia's occupation is that she's a socialite. She dabbles in political and social affairs though she doesn't an official title, but due to her past marriages, she has a certain influence among the human ruling class. She uses this influence to support pro-human groups in the city.

Allegiance: Being a noble, Lady Sofia lives in the affluent part of the human quarter. She lives in a cavernous mansion with her butler, two guards and cook. She usually has people over, relatives, traveling political figures and other important humans. She frequently uses her home for parties and events. She fights for the human cause the best she can. She is also quite charitable, but her charity only extends to humans. In honor of her late husband, she opened the Lord Francis Moreaux University, which is known to produce the best human knights and mages. The school only admits humans.

Appearance: An enchanting, but aggressive beauty, Lady Sofia is beautiful to the point of intimidating. She's not exactly approachable, especially since she wears rich and elegant elegant dresses with adorned with many jewels. If she is acting friendly or cordial, she carries a lovely smile on her face which softens demeanor. She's of average height, though people would swear they thought she was taller. She carries herself with elegant and grace. In contrast, her ever-present guard, Karenina, lumbers around with heavy armor. Her other guard, Tobias, is never seen.

Personality: Seductive, machiavellian, manipulative and cunning, Lady Sofia acts only on her needs and the needs of her people. Charming and pleasant if she wants to be, she knows she's intimidating and uses it. Looking like a perfect noblewoman in public, she doesn't admit or try to show any weaknesses. She misses her husband greatly and his loss left a great hole in her heart. It's not that she doesn't have any suitors. Many pursue her for her social standing and money, but she sees through all that.

Background: Born into a noble family, her future was already outlined by her family. She was supposed to marry into an influential family, and she did just that. Her first marriage was to Darcy Riverwood, rich businessman and merchant. Riverwood and Sofia's father were good friends. They often talked about pooling their resources together for a risky venture, Riverwood would rule the businesses in the city and Sofia's father would rule in politics. Though Sofia was only 14 at the time and Riverwood was 42, they were married.

Sofia didn't object. She didn't fight it. She knew it would make her father happy and that's all she wanted. Within a year, Riverwood started to exert his influence on the merchants in the city and Sofia's father worked his way into the ruling class of the human quarter.

During a bright and sunny day, Riverwood invited his wife and her father to a day of hunting. Feeling ill, Sofia declined and her father, Riverwood and a few of their servants went off hunting. The events of the day were sketchy at best. Some say a group of bandits attacked the hunting party, while others say they were trained mercenaries and assassins. Almost all accounts say that the attackers were elves, dwarves and orcs. The killers were never found. The killing of her father and Riverwood made Sofia distrustful of all the other races.

Her mother died from grief shortly after, leaving Sofia alone. Because her family is so well known, she was taken in Cyrus Moreaux, an old knight and friend to her father. It was shortly after that she meets Francis, Cyrus' grandson. When she was 19 and he was 24, they married. Young, skilled and good-looking, Francis quickly became the human court's favorite, drawing ire and jealousy from the other courtiers.

Like Sofia, Francis has a staunch pro-human attitude. He wanted humans to takeover the city, saying they are the true rulers. After a rousing speech in the court, conspirators against the Francis' political ideals moved against him, stabbing murdering him in cold blood and leaving his body in front of his house.

At the mere age of 20, Sofia is already a widow of two marriages. To honor her husband's wishes, she worked her contacts to pursue his pro-human goals. Soon, she raised enough money to open a school in his name.

She hired two guards, a knight and an assassin, to follow her everywhere she went seeing as how her husband was so brutally killed.

Interesting character, I'm unfortunately a little preoccupied right now, so I'll write a start later

I hope this is still open for others to join?

Name: Jamben Devros

Age: 21

Race: human

Normal Occupation: bard/jester

Allegiance: If he is asked where his loyalties lie he would stop doing what he was doing and think before responding with a quip about how he does not have a loyalty and it does not lie down, then eh would laugh and then go back to performing. He lives on the streets of the city traveling through the districts to perform for any and all that would take the time to watch this jester make a fool of himself time after time.

Appearance: Jamben is about 6' 2" when standing up right, he has a rather balanced body that is a good mix of lithe and muscle. he normally wears the same old green and orange jester outfit day in and day out without it ever seeming to get too dirty or torn. he always wears a mask to hide his true face and when asked to remove it he just bows and then runs off. He also has three visible tattoos on the inside of his elbos as well as on his stomach.

Personality: Jamben Devros really does not like to be serious and he really really doesn't like people that are always serious or can not take his jokes. He sees laughter in everything and sometimes his jokes could take on a sobering/morbid tone to it depending on what he is joking about. Jamben loves to perform for people and make them laugh away their troubles, in his jokes and songs he normally makes fun of some local authority figure and how some lowly animal would be better then them at their job. He is also extremely random and loves to be chaotic.

Background: His earliest memory was of wandering out in a cold snowy field in nothing but rags on his body before he was adopted by a traveling group of bards and other traveling performers who formed a famous circus called, "cirque du uniques', a group of performers that would accept any talent and any race into their ranks. From there he was adopted by a strange fey woman named bahbayahga. she renamed this poor boy who could not remember anything ebfore passing out and being found by them jamben devros and once he was nursed back to health her and the rest of the performers began to eagerly teach this young Jamben all the tricks of the trade that they could. He excelled in bardic magic to the point his jokes and songs could enchant people, he was gifted with knife throwing, balancing and every other trick and feat that helped make the group's performances memorable. For now Jamben wishes to try and make a name for himself outside of the group and he has taken to wandering the world and performing for his nightly meal if he could get it.

Special abilities and skills: He has bardic magic at his disposal, in terms of magical muscle he would not be able to keep up with a trained sorcerer or wizard but most of his spells he can use to help him either get out of trouble or aid him in his performance. His hat is a magical storage device that eh can disappear into to fetch certain items that he has stored there, others can follow if they want to risk entering his hat. Besides magical jamben is also very flexible and his hands are very fast so becareful to count your coin purse or check to make sure you have all your jewelry when this fool is around.
