Creature and Hero(oines,) Fantasy School. (Need male students.)
« on: December 12, 2011, 11:39:56 AM »
I realize there's a game like this already out in the group area, but they are running a system game.  I myself would have loved to join except my experience with such things is next to zero unfortunately, so this is my alternative to this.  Due to a recent lull in my own games, both that I either run or am in in some capacity or another, I thought I'd open up another game.  At any rate, this will be set up as a school of sorts, but I'll need help in running it since I haven't run many school type of games before.  Beyond that though, let's get to the bare bones of this little get together shall we?

http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=126737.0  OOC and Information thread.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Once every four years, a gateway appears in every town across the land, letting heroes, heroines, and creatures of all ages, races, genders, and more to attend the most prestigious school there is.  At the start, all that approach a gate are told straight away that they'll be cut off from the outside world until the four years are over.  Given the school's reputation as being the best for heroes, heroines, creatures alike however, few turn away despite the hardships that lie ahead for them.  The classes are tough, there is no two ways to say otherwise.  Archery, horse back riding, or dragon riding, depending on preference, (and anything else you can slap a saddle on and hopefully stay on,) combat training, arcane arts, demon summoning which is always supervised, (doesn't mean you can't try anyway, just be aware the price of failure in containing said demon is hefty  >:) ), ancient lore and history, and a myriad of so much more are open to any and all.  There are race specific classes, to be sure, but most are cross species, meaning you might be studying beside a half demon and a dark elf and more in the same class more times than not, for a quick example.  ALL THAT ATTEND ARE AT LEAST MORALLY DECENT.  (That's not to say you can't be perverted or anything, but no backstabbing just because you have a grudge against another race or something.  I.E, no deaths.)  If you think you have what it takes to attend this place of learning set within its own dimensional pocket that contains a whole forest, open plains, a small but dangerous desert, and a mountain range around the castle itself, then feel free to step forward now.

We are not responsible for loss of limbs, unwanted pregnancies, body modifications self inflicted or otherwise, byproducts of dark rituals, and other physical or magical harm that might occur during your stay with us.  Please see a cleric before attending any classes that have strenuous activities involved if you have a heart problem....

((I couldn't resist that little fine print poke you see in all those commercials on TV for medicine and stuff lol.))

As it's been said before, as long as you have sentience and a means to speak and have at least enough good in you to not kill everyone that gets near you, then you're welcome to draw up a character of anything you like as long as it's fantasy related.  This is more DnD related without the DnD rules attached to it, so any books and the like you can use, I just ask that you explain everything you can so that those that might not know of them can follow along.  I have a fair amount of DnD books on my comp but nothing compared to some people I've heard of around here on E.  Anyway, let's see some hustle out there!

This looks like it could be fun. Do you have to know a whole lot about the DnD lore to be involved?

No no, you don't have to know a thing about DnD, just that's where some of my stuff will be coming from is all.  Really it's ANY fantasy type of creatures out there or created just for this if you like.  Either way, I'm all for it as long as you're NOT all powerful or anything.

Meant to put NOT all powerful or anything lol.  Still, glad to have ya Rev buddy.  Teachers and staff CAN be more powerful than students for obvious reasons however, and I need both staff and students for this.  I have a couple of teachers in mind already, two you know well I'm sure.  For those that don't I shan't be telling just yet lol.

Sounds like a fun idea to me.

But first, I have a question: what do you expect for posting? Like, once a day, once a week, every hour, or such? Just asking because I'm working without net access, hence I would only be able to post during GMT+1 evening times, more on weekends and holidays.

Well, just whenever you can for the most part since some games I've run are kind of quick, while others are kind of slow, so it just kind of depends on the speed of the people involved really.  I can chug out posts pretty fast when my muse is around, but I slow down if I have to for others so they can keep up.  Sorry I can't really answer your question for ya if that didn't help ya Andalon.  Once a day is good for most of my games I have had in the past.

I haven't come up with a concrete character sheet yet Sharon, but I'd be happy to have ya aboard.  My only thing I might have a problem with from seeing your past posts is your grammar, but as long as you do your best I'll be happy enough, so long as it's relatively easy to translate of course lol.  I understand some people here that English is not their first language and all, but as I said, just do the best you can hun.

I plan to run this game as a bit more with a comedy bend than anything serious, but don't worry, there will be plenty of tense moments, just iit'll be more light hearted is what I'm getting at.  Anyway, send the word around and see who shows up I guess lol.

As long as you're fine with a daily posting, one or two a day, I'm in.

Already thinking of a char right now, mainly doing some artwork for it.

Another question: do you mind some techno influence, like in Fable? I mean, flintlock weapons and such?

I actually was thinking about that while I was in the shower a little bit ago.  Given the fact that there's worlds that combine both fantasy and sci fi elements, as well as everything in between to as you asked Fable, with more modern fantasy bends such as a few games I've done recently on here myself, I think that'd be perfectly fine by me.  I don't want sci fi stuff persay, but if you want to make this more of a modern fantasy game with the castle grounds and all that being more fantasy related than anything where devices like cellphones, PDAs, and all that can't access the outside world at all, that's fine, or we can stick to a more Fable ish idea.  Either way I'm cool with it.  For now we'll assume Fable ish unless others wish more of course if that's cool.

I'll try to get a character sheet going here soon if I get at least two more people in this and I am able to do so of course since my little brother is coming home in the next half hour or so.  He normally wants the comp when he gets home, sometimes for homework, mostly for his own fun which is no biggie for me either way lol.  Anyway, two more people and I'll get a sheet going when I can.

Great  :-) . I'm working on a character picture right now ( a modified version of my avi ), and already got a concept in mind.

And, for the records, I wouldn't mind including higher tech, like cellphones, holo viewers or even plasma weapons, as long as it fits in. If the guy/gal/person(?) next to me is a cyborg... hells, why not that too?

As I said before, little to no sci fi elements, so unfortunately no cyborgs or anything like that.  Still, everything fantasy related is cool by me.  I've tried to mix fantasy and sci fi together before, and while it worked for a while in a Mass Effect ish game I had going, my more fantasy related people never got off their homeworld before the game collapsed, which was unfortunate but it happened.  Still, cellphones, PDAs, stuff like that as stated before is cool, but nothing higher up the food chain than modern tech please.  Mechanical golems and stuff like that is another story, but no laser weapons and stuff like that.

I've gotta be honest, I don't really like the idea of including anything above early gunpowder weapons (flintlocks and stuff) at all. It doesn't exactly fit with a fantasy theme, and I'm not sure this would benefit from being turned into a "school for fantasy or sci-fi or whatever the hell you want" RP.

Hmm, we have one for modern tech ish stuff and one for not.  I said it once already though Rev, I don't want sci fi stuff in this so that won't be a problem at least.  Still, we'll see what others say and go from there my friend.  I'll probably just stick to a more fantasy related game but again we'll see what the people think if that's ok and all.

Oh don't get me wrong, I'm quite fine with the flintlock stage of things. Actually, I would even prefer that over hightech.

I just mentioned it because I wanted to say if others would like to do that, I wouldn't have a problem with it.

I do my best when it comes to my grammar and if there is a post that I do that can't be made out if you just slip me a PM and be kind about it, I will go back and try my best to fixed it. As it in my on and character there is a paragraph about my grammar.

Though people had been rather rude with it came to my grammar. English is my only language though I have a learning disable and  the teachers sucked when it came to it teaching grammar. It was more about pushing us along to the next grade...

Sharon, grammar and me is like... uhm... Twilight and Bram Stoker ;)

English being my secondary language, I also might have some faults at grammar, spelling and vocabulary, but I learned much from forums, and also games.

I don't have an issue with mistakes, and as long as I know what you mean, I'm fine. And if I can't figure out what you said, I'll ask. Helps me with getting on with the RP'ing, and helps you to improve, so win-win ;)

Right, I think I got my character idea done and worked out, so if you want me to post it, just shout.

Well, until I hear otherwise, we'll stick with basic flintlock and stuff along those lines.  I think it would work out better that way anyway to tell the truth.  Since I'm bored though, I think I'll get the character sheet going lol.

A side note while I'm thinking about it.  Creatures that are not humanoid such as tentacle beasts, and other things of the same ilk might have special requirements to help with their day to day, but for the most part they are to be treated the same way as more humanoid individuals.  Just include that in your racial stuff.  Given the more light hearted feel to this I hope to engender, feel free to include anything that might be used in such a way, but it's not required by any means.

Code: [Select]
[b]Name;[/b]
[b]Gender;[/b]
[b]Age;[/b]
[b]Sexuality;[/b]
[b]Race;[/b]
[b]Racial Traits;[/b]  (Elves have long life, sharper senses, etc.  Include anything that's pertinent and be realistic, no super beings.)
[b]Appearance;[/b]
[b]Tattoos, piercings, other markings;[/b]
[b]Class;[/b]  (Anything from ranger to cleric and everything in between.  If anything with a religion and god/goddess, please include that as well.  Thanks!)
[b]Class Description;[/b]  (Highlights mostly if you would.  What you're capable of, your strengths, etc.  Detailed summaries are more than welcome though of course.))
[b]Specialty/Prestige Class;[/b]  (Optional, but must follow along with whatever your main class, that's all I ask.  Beyond that, go nuts.)
[b]Specialty/Prestige Class Description;[/b]  (Highlights as stated before.  Detailed is appreciated greatly though, but not necessary.)
[b]Position:[/b]  (Student or teacher.  If teacher or other staff, please include what you teach or do as well.)
[b]Personality;[/b]  (More than one line please.)
[b]History/Background Info;[/b]  (Details aplenty please.  You can be from another dimension for all I care, but I do ask that you include a few things is all I ask.  Mainly, what you're doing there, why you joined or however you want to put it.  Also include where you came from, what life was like before coming to the school, and anything else you might think is pertinent.)
[b]Ons;[/b]  (Given the nature of this game, some EX stuff is to be expected but not required of you in particular.  Simple things like body mods, bondage, just kind of depends on what you're wanting in the end really.)
[b]Limits;[/b]  (Self explanatory I'm sure.)

Sharon, as I said before, as long as you do your best, that's good enough for me.  I am sorry to hear that you've had jerks in the past say stuff to you about your writing, but as Andalon said, grammar is easy to fix and a simple PM I'll be happy to send to ya if trouble comes along hun.

And Andalon, I think the character sheet answers that question about whether or not I want ya to post your person up lol.

Name: Venquariath Am'shoul tez Lir-Krunez
Gender: male
Age: 24
Sexuality: hetero
Race: Human
Racial Traits: None, apart from the human ability to adapt and learn
Appearance:

Tattoos, piercings, other markings: Bright glowing blue eyes (see Appearance pictures)
Class: Noble Hunter
Class Description: While most Rangers are hunting to gather food, or protect others from savage creatures, a Noble Hunter stalks his prey for the joy of the kill.
Position:Student
Personality: Playful, cheeky and always up to a dare, while able to focus on more important things. For example, he will surely attend a party, getting stinking drunk when he knows there's nothing important up the next day. IF there is something important tho, he will courteously say goodbye and get a good sleep. He has some troubles making friends, due to his experience that many want to befriend him for his status and heritage, but those who can make friends with him will have a loyal and honest friend, who will cover them, lie for them, and pick up a fight for them.
History/Background Info:  As the fifth son of his father, Venquariath had no part in the plays of the court. He was just the youngest of his brother, and so almost free to do what ever he liked and wanted to do, and so he did. He was attending official events, but also the festivities of the commoners and servants.. Growing up between the intrigues and schemes of the nobles, as well as the simple and common desires of the servants, he gained a rather lax attitude regarding the mishaps of the nobles and commoners. There was only one thing that could draw his attention away from everything else: the thrill of the hunt. He enjoyed tracking down his prey, learning much from an old huntsmen in his father's retinue. When he grew older, the simple hunt did not satisfy him anymore. Instead, he sought to stalk the wild creatures of the woods, and get a trophy of them, while not killing them. His greatest achievement so far was cutting off the ear of a dire bear while it was still sleeping without waking it up.

When he was not out in the woods, he practiced his martial skills. He became adept in using the new twin-barreled flintlock pistols which became popular amongst the nobles. However, he prefered to fight hands-on, and became an expert swordsman, with only the most famed duellists of his father's kingdom able to beat him. He also took part in other tournaments, but although he was regarded a promising newcomer, he did not achieve much else, apart from the craving to improve. What gave him the edge in some fights was his ability to use both the pistol and the blade at the same time during a fight, an ability many other disliked, as he, according to them, mocked both the marksmen and the swordsmen. Venquariath himself was quite happy with this.

As he grew up between the different worlds of the nobles and the commoners, he learned not to care about birthright and status. Instead, he learned more about people, their behaviour and their feeling. Needless to say, quite a few common girls were attracted to him, partially because of his charm, but also because of his name. After all, he was of noble blood. Venquariath did not mind either. As long as a woman had a "special something"... why not?

As the years went by, Venquariath not only became a friend of the people, but also an expert hunter. Tales were told that he could track down any living creature without been seen or heared, and he never denied that, although he never boasted about it either.

Truth to be told, he indeed had the power to track and hunt down his prey, given enough time. Once he was challenged to hunt down a crow that stole a ring of one of his sisters, and after he disappeared for three weeks, he returned with a dead crow, and his sister's ring.

At some point, he became more a liability to his family than anything else. One of his father's advisors suggested that he could be sent somewhere else, through a portal that only opened up every four years. Venquariath could learn there, and maybe finally find out what it would be like to be one of the nobles of the realm.

As the portal finally opened, his departure was rather inappropriate. A dozen or so women were there, crying because of him leaving. Men of the  woods were there, wishing him well. One of his sisters was also there, telling him that he should be proud of himself. Another one of his sisters was also there, tossing a large backpack at him.

He caught the backpack, and stepped through the portal, not sure of what would be waiting for him...

Ons:  Common girls, as long as they are good looking (according to his definition), the thrill of the hunt when it comes to the out-of-reach girls, quick affairs, but also he's looking for romance
Limits:  Never hurt a woman unless she wants it, nothing that would hurt him and/or his abilities permanently

Hope that's ok for you, if your need some clarification on some points, just say so, and I'll add it in.

EDIT: a bit more about personality, and clearing up some ability issues. Hope it's fine, or at least better now.

Two problems;  your personality is too short but it's good as a start, and the other, for a student, he seems a bit too good for his britches to be going to any school.  Do off a bit on his overkill power there and I'll be happy.  Otherwise, I love Ven a great deal already Andalon.  I can't wait to see how he'll compare to everyone else.

I'm sure it'll be fine Sharon hun.

Hmm allrighty. Personality will be easy to expand.

But i wonder what you mean as when you say "overkill power"? His ability with swords, or to track down creatures? Or something else?
