First Things First -
All the information below here was written for my Solo request thread. So if there are misleading sentence refering to one person RPing this, then that's because it was initially written for a Solo thread. Also the first part gives character roles and such that are potential things to play, but really I am happy to roleplay anything to do with this thread, from scouts, archers, women who want to be more in their society, to the Goddess's and the groups like Silent Sisters and Women of Lust. Also if you have an idea to expand on, or add I am all ears. You could even play an outsider who gets brought in to the forest. I'm not looking for a big group game though, I find I get lost and left behind in situations like that. So I'm looking for two females or two females and another male, so a maximum of four people including myself and two of them being female characters. I know there's a lot to read below, but it will help you understand the kind of direction and stories I'm looking for to do with these people.
Basically I'm thinking of a group that kind of aren't satisfied with their lot in Zeffari culture, and decide to break away into their own little faction. However they do keep a lot of the culture they've been brought up with.
Thank you for reading.
Iíve already created a world by myself for this, but this RP will be focused on one group of people in this world, with some appearances by the people in the same area of this world. I will delve into this more when I find someone to play this with me. But here are some non-negotiables.
ē The world is nearly entirely populated by humans. These humans will be different from one another but there arenít elves, dwarfs or other races other than humans and animals. The animals on the other hand, will have differences. Some drastic and some subtle.
ē Magic isnít common. Whilst there will be individuals with incredible GIFTS which may be referred to as magic, humans canít for instance create fire from their hands.
ē Itís an ancient type of fantasy setting. No guns! However swords and bows and arrows are common place.
Okay, with that out of the way, lets get focused on the plot and part of the world this part of the story is set in. Also read lower than this post because I explore more about the Zeffari like religion and the forest the live in.
Zeffaria is a land filled with tall trees and clearings hidden amongst those tall trees. It is essentially and forest but it is populated by a people called the Zeffari. Outsiders who go to deep into this forest often find themselves getting lost and never finding their way out. However the Zeffari know their forest like the back of their hands. Whilst outsiders can look left and right and not see the difference between the forest, the Zeffariwill know exactly where they are as if they are bringing up a mental map in their head of the entire area.
The forest is also home to many animals, some of which are exotic and only found in the forest. Because of it being right on the equator of the world, the weather is hot but the trees provide plenty of shade for all types of creatures.
The Zeffari usually can be found in the clearings that can be found if you venture deep enough into the forest. Somewhere in the middle of this forest is the main camp, but there are camps dotted around the entire forest. The Zeffari are considered the most backward people in the known areas of the world, as they cannot forge steel or build from materials other than wood and animals. However they are very skilled in building from wood, animal hide and even bones.
Either because of their surroundings and the heat, the Zeffari are very tribal in their nature. They wear animal hide, but in comparison to the other people of the world, they wear very little. They also have tribal customs foreign to the rest of the world, and their celebrations are often rowdy and overtly sexual in nature. In fact the Zeffari are the most openly sexual race on the land. At these celebrations men often pick a female and they have sex in time to the beat of the drums played around a campfire. And the sexual positions are often the types were the man is seen as dominant. Whether itís a by-product of their sexual nature or not, the women of the Zeffari are considered the most sultry and curvaceous women in the land, and the men the most dominant and strong.
Despite the fact that they are considered backward by many of the other humans in the area, they are feared warriors, especially in their own forest. Their archers are second to none, and their warriors fearless. Their whole belief system is based on the strong survive and the practise fighting from young ages. In fact their leader is decided by a tournament where they fight each other, till one man wins the tournament and becomes the leader. Their diets and lives have also made them the healthiest race of humans. You never see an out of shape Zeffari, from the kids up to the elders. Take that into account and their unrivalled knowledge of their land, make them dangerous to cross. Plot Ideas to explore
ē Women are treated as slightly inferior. Their job is to cook, have sex and look after the children. However my long term goal for the Zeffari people is to have women revered as equals in all aspects of Zeffari life. At the moment they donít make the clothes the Zeffari wear, hunt or become warriors and leaders. However through certain events I want the women to become equals to the men, but not necessarily lose the general feeling of the Zeffari people. They will still be tribal at the end compared to the rest of the world.
ē Riverhaven somehow managing to get further than they ever have before. Either be venturing into the forest or managing to sail around a lot of the forest and attack Ironpeak. I see the latter happening, with the survivors fleeing into the Zeffari forest. The Zeffari will then try help them get their land back. Maybe a war on two fronts kind of deal.
Okay, thatís most of what is really relevant to the story. More may become relevant and I will share that with the person I RP with. From the beginning Iím looking for someone to play these characters.
ē Wife of the Battleborn Leader
ē Daughter of the Battleborn Leader
ē Female Zeffari that wants to become an archer/warrior
ē Potentially Ė Female Zeffari that falls for an Ironpeak survivor.
So there you have it, hope to hear from some people.
