The Queen has ruled for 200 years, with blood and magic. She has the Power to control ALL the elements, but her corruption of nature and spirit has brought the Land to begin to die. Her armies are vast and ruthless. When she should be using her Power to help the land, she takes it into herself to make herself stronger. Once a year she goes to a secret place to perform a ritual with the One she trusts most.
The Queen has spies and assassins everywhere, and has systematically killed anyone she has heard of with any inkling towards elemental powers. But somehow four people managed to slip under her radar. Four hero's the Prophecies have told about to be those that came together to defeat the Queen and bring the Land back to its former glory.
The Plains of Tiskele (Air) The Mountains and Forests of Sayamir (Earth)
The Estovad Seaside (Water) The Volcanic Region of Jurad (Fire)
(The Queen will be played by me)The Elementals:
Fire (male) - Shade
Earth (male) - Wolfy
Air (female) - LadyLunarius
Water (female) - Savant of the WastesElemental 'Mentors':
(One for each Elemental)
It has come to my attention ( *eyes a certain someone who's helped her TONS* ) that my Mentor idea is a bit too open ended, so I'm narrowing it down a bit. Mentors will be either hedge witches or warlocks, the idea being they will be old enough to know of the Prophecy, and being of such affiliation more likely to have had it passed down through the years. JUST REMEMBER: Though you may be a witch/warlock, your powers will be MINIMAL. Hence 'hedge'. As a Mentor you will NOT have the Power of the Element you choose, but you will have knowledge needed for training. FILLED
Fire's Mentor - midnight diamond
Earth's Mentor - Lady Lunarius
Water's Mentor - DudelRok
Air's Mentor - VeluuxQueens People:
Army General - JDrewSpider
Assassins/Hunters (those sent by the Queen to kill the Hero's) - Kokaine Veluux
Queens Right Hand (male, very special to the Queen) - PeaceThatPowerBrings Rebels:
Rebel Leader/General - Ellipsis
Rebel followers - Shade JecterOther character ideas welcome!
To begin the story, each Elemental will come into their Powers on their 18th birthday. They will not know they have the Power until an event (up to player) causes them to use their Element simply by instinct. Then their Mentor will take over 'training'. Each Elemental will be in a separate part of the Kingdom, having grown up in different environments. The goal is to all meet up with the Rebels, who end up being the Hero's army, and eventually make it to the Queen City for the final battle. Their travels will be fraught with danger, and defeating the Queen will not be easy. This will be a FREE-FORM medieval style game, horses and swords and the like.
This is just an interest check for right now.I will expand on the story idea more (Kingdom name, city names, Rebel base, and the such) if enough interest is garnered. GAME HAS BEGUN BUT RECRUITMENT STILL GOES ON.
I plan on this being a Sandbox style
game, though as GM I will toss ideas out as they come to me during play. This requires the players to interact on their own and move the story along on their own -for the most part-.
I expect players to understand that god-moding will not be tolerated
, but I want players willing to have their characters take damage! No characters will die unless they choose to. No Elemental will die period.
I am a bit picky when it comes to post length. I expect players to put effort
into their posts, and be descriptive. By no means do they need to be a book, but at least a couple paragraphs
per post is expected. This WILL NOT be a fast paced game.
(This does not mean I'm okay with someone not posting for 2 weeks with no word as to what's up. PM's are good!) I personally can't really post more then once a week, and that's if my muse isn't being a bitch. I don't expect any more from those involved. If it does
move faster between other players that's fine.
Once enough interest with enough possible players has been generated, I will make a char sheet template, and will ask for character ideas to be PM'd to me, where I will pick through applicants.
POST CHAR SHEETS HERE FOR ACCEPTANCE!
I hope this is enough to spark muses!!
