Dragons & Gryphons RP
« on: January 15, 2008, 04:44:40 PM »
I decided to attempt a new RP.

The setting is a fantasy world where the dominant species are the likes of dragons, gryphons, and the likes.

Vladimort, a young adult black dragon, returns from his journey. He managed to defeat the demented Lord Xianz, an evil black dragon that had attempted to awaken the Heaven's Sword, a gigantic weapon of mysterious origins that floats way up in the starry skies and could have consumed the world in flames.

However, few knew of Xianz's true intentions and his quick rise, from a minor dragon lord to the ruler of a powerful and vast empire spanning through most of the world and dominating over most of the known species, caused him to become respected by the population, feared by the nobility. On another hand, everyone came to know about Vladimort's use of feared and hated forbidden techniques and magic, learnt from the "vermin", the humans.

Thus, when Vladimort arrives at the cliffs of J'Ponie above the evergreen northern forests, he doesn't exactly get the hero's welcome.

---

Some notes about this RP. The setting is rather close to the usual dragons/gryphons RP (which means that the dragons, gryphons, and the likes are quadrupeds and all that... but live in societies with buildings and the likes). Note that the difference in size between dragons and gryphons isn't that big (dragons aren't overly gigantic and thus, although usually a bit larger than gryphons, aren't quite as massive as in other settings).

Vladimort is, within dragon society, a knight. He is a very, very minor noble and although he has respectable strength, quite a bit of skills, and is actually very agile, his specialization in forbidden techniques (which he can't use most of the time for obvious reasons) means that he might appear a bit clumsy and overall unskilled when fighting "normally". Due to him constantly travelling, he also had to abandon most of the land he previously owned, gaining the money he needs to survive and maintain his equipment from jobs as an adventurer-for-hire and a mercenary. His reputation, before he killed Lord Xianz, wasn't too horrible; he was recognized as an actual knight although a rather low-ranked one.

The RP will probably involve Vladimort being called by J'Ponie's local nobles and having to explain himself for what he did and all. Most of the RP's focus will be in the interactions within the colony's main palace, where Vladimort will be forced to reside until he is set free (or jailed/executed).

I am looking for someone who will either play Vladimort or create his own character, preferably a female dragon or gryphon. Rank and proper title can be whatever you choose; a maid, a noble's daughter, a female knight, an emissary from somewhere else, an adventurer in visit wishing to get an audience with the highest-ranking noble... pretty much anything.

OK... do you have MSN? If so, I'll be willing to discuss more about the RP on it. Else, just state that you don't have it in this thread and we'll discuss it here or via PM.

Not MSN, but Yahoo.

Name is BK Geno, just to confuse people.
