Everquest When the Lord of Hate extends his grasp upon the mortal world once again, brave adventurers must take up the quest to strike down the enemies of righteousness and put the world back to rights, at whatever the cost!
The Stone of Innoruuk
For those of you who do not already know the lore of Everquest and of Norrath there WILL be an extensive information thread once the game kicks off in order to get everyone up to speed. While knowledge of Everquest lore is recommended, it is certainly not required.
Large posts, extreme detail, grammar, spelling, and creativity are all required.
Posting length will be NO LESS than 400 + words per post.
The world of Norrath is in turmoil, dark magic is at work upon the land once again and great armies of the enemies to the south are mustering in the swamps, the deserts, and the dark holes which are their ken. The Ogres of Oggok, war like beasts which have turned their gaze to the north are once again a threat to the civilized cities of northern plains; they devour and destroy any in their path. The Trolls of Grobb have once against left their swampy homes and found their way along the western coast, travelling at great pace towards the city of Qeynos, the bastion of hope and Righteousness of Western Antonica. They travel unaided, unhindered and are led by one of the most ferocious beasts ever to have come from the southern swamps, he is Glarthak the Large, tribal leader and warchief among the trolls who have united the recently separated tribes into a single nation, capable of destroying anything that falls in the way of their march.
But those two forces are not the only presences at work in Antonica, Orcs, Goblins, Gnolls, and all manner of foul things have joined forces (although warily as they might themselves become a meal) with the Ogres and Trolls. But what could be behind this recent string of events? Who is it that is controlling these beasts and giving them desire to take to battle once again?
It is well known that within the circle of evil beings that inhabit Norrath only one race(as far as they know) are capable of devising such a devilish plan; The Dark Elves, the dreaded Tier’Dal are once again at large in the world, no longer satisfied with remaining in their tomb like city of Neriak they have sent emissaries to the great tribes and nations of the south, to unite under one banner…the evil banner of their god, long banished from the world but now supposedly returned.
The Prince of Hate, Innoruuk One Eye and his followers have returned to land to wipe it clean of the scourge of all of those who would worship the honorable gods and lay waste to the continent of Antonica, and eventually reach out and take the others by storm, using Antonica as a staging point for their war host, and as a staging point for the destruction of all that is good in the world!
It is a race against the clock! The dread followers of Innoruuk one eye are now scouring the lands for The Stone of Innoruuk
, a powerful magical artifact which is rumored to be the very eye of the Prince of Hate himself. With this relic, and the sarcophagus of the long banished god, they can revive him and bring his avatar to life once again, allowing the Prince himself to conquer and lead his armies to victory.
He must be stopped at any chance!
Adventurer, will you take up the sword, the staff, the bow, and lend your might to the cause?!
Well, now that you’ve gotten through the brief synopsis of the storyline to come I think it bears a brief OOC explanation of what will be involved in this group RP. It is of course an Everquest Fandom game based on the Lore of Norrath before the discovery of Kunark. The game will call for 5-6 players who will be working together in a group towards a common cause. Find Innoruuk’s stone before the enemy does!
The game will be an adventure RP with adult elements from time to time, there will be plenty of time to carry the actual story forward as well as for character development and inter-personal relationships between party members.
The game will be ran in a sort of D&D fashion, though there will no real rolls of dice, I say D&D because it is most likely what you folks are familiar with. I will be playing one of the main characters (just as you are) and all of the supporting characters and enemies. There will be plenty of opportunity for PC’s to play key NPC roles throughout the game but I would prefer to run the majority of the game as a “Dungeon Master” so to speak so that the story can be moved on, new things can be discovered, and the world can be saved.
This game will be structured, but it will also have an element of free form to it as well. No one expects people to adventure all day and night without getting any rest, there will be plenty of time for social activities, fighting, questing, discovery, and side quests that will come up along with the Heroes regular journey. Be advised, the group will be comprised of good races and good classes unless you can give me a FANTASTIC reason for you to play something that is evil. That being said, here is a list of the Norrathian Races that are USUALLY available to play, as well as the classes that will be USUALLY available for player as well. Evil Races and Classes are left out because I would honestly prefer for them not to be in the main group. Until later on… *Cue dreary fore shadowing music*
All classes may not be available as an option with all races, a DETAILED explanation of Race and Class lore as well as compatibility will be available in the OOC thread once you are accepted.
• *Humans have the option of being originally from two different cities, thus allowing them to choose more of their heritage themselves
• **Half elves have the option of being from four different cities, allowing them to determine even more of their heritage than humans
The game is optioned to six players, once I am getting a decent interest in the game I will start putting up the OOC threads and the information threads. I am not opposed to taking up to four more players if someone has a friend or whomever that they would like the join.
