The King stood over the bed, his son, Prince Vandren, lying there still with sweat across his brow. Behind him stood Lady Iona Draedon, a frown creasing her forehead. "Sire... we need the amulet... The Blackheart Stone..." The king sighed, his long, greying hair lank beneath his crown.
"I don't like the idea of this sorcery, Iona..." He said, his voice gravelly with lack of sleep and slurred with dehydration.
"Sire... It's all we have... I took the liberty of placing bounty notes around the city... Ithaeron will be baying for the gold I offered to help... I even appointed a commander for the quest. Fifty thousand sovereigns is nothing to be turned down."
"I hope you're right, Iona... of all my children... Vandren is the only one I trust to rule with a just, compassionate hand... alot is at stake here."
[A bounty Notice]
Sellswords: Make fifty thousand sovereigns picking up a completely worthless necklace! Gather in the Quiver and Sickle inn in Old Town, ask for the Back Room, and make that money YOURS!The Races of the Southern Kingdoms Feel free to be something else, but please clear it via PM if you wish to be something different.
Humans: Average in many ways, but capable of far more than the other races for that, the wounded Prince is human. Within human hearts is much goodness... and much cruelty. Their potential great within their short lives.
Wood Elves: Once citizens of the Wyr Elvani empire, after the fall of their empire, many moved south and joined their forces with the Humans. Their reverence for nature can be a large stepping block, putting the woodlands and it's creatures lives above those of any humanoid. They have an intense ability for speed and agility, though little strength and stamina. Their climbing is second to none.
Dwarves: A stout people, indomitable and fun loving though fierce in the face of danger. They have superior strength and stamina... and can drink almost anyone else under the table.
Halflings: A short, quick witted people, excelling in magic and guile. Their clever way with words and exceptional abilities to get away with thingsThe enemies of the Kingdoms Please no players of these races unless you can make an AMAZING case via PM. And there will be a limit, so first come first served.
Orcs: A huge, burly people, green of skin and violent of nature. They once held an immense empire, but have become little more than glorified raiders and bandits. They have a strength and stamina that rivals even dwarves... but are as intelligent as several short planks.
Shadow Elves: Ancient Enemies of the Wyr Elvani empire... they hunt Wood Elves wherever they lay their heads and without mercy or compassion. They excel in speed and agility, and their ability to sneak and ambush is considered a type of racial magic by most.
Disciples of Zhaan: A splinter faction of the human kingdoms, anarchists following their dark god, Zhaan. They are well rounded and are capable of anything a Kingdom Human is.
Goblins: A diminutive, wiry people, full of guile and cunning, their command over ancient primal magics is legendary, though their tribes are often at war with each other, their intelligence and wit make them fierce enemies.
(more racial info on request, I just didn't want to spend all night writing this. :3)
Name: Isaera Splinterthorn
Race: Wood Elf
Sexual Orientation: Lesbian
Personality: Izzy is not an easy person to get along with, as a leader she is firm, fair and loyal. Her methods are unorthodox, born of old Wyr Elvani tactics. She has something of a chip on her shoulder, and is prone to passion induced rages, she is very proud and actually pretty easy to manipulate for a team leader.
History: Isaera was born in the capital of the Wyr Elvani Empire, and had a relatively privileged childhood, joining the third Scout Regiment and acquitting herself well in several skirmishes against their Shadow Elf enemies. After the fall of the Wyr Elvani, she eked out a living as a sellsword in the human capital of Mourneguard. After several decades of general anonymity, she was a part of a ragtag defense of the farming village of Dawnstead, commanding the defense against a heavy attack by Orc raiders, losing just three people. After that she became a go-to girl for any important quests below the eyes or above the grade of the local guard. She was hand picked by Lady Iona to spearhead the quest for the Blackheart, her most important duty to date.
Skills: Tracking, due to her time as a scout for the Wyr Elvani empire
Camoflage/ambush, also due to her scouting capabilities.
She excels in her use with the bow, and while she has skills with her blades, her combat style in melee is fast and agile, though does not allow much space for defense.
Scavenging (Skinning, butchering and primitive leatherworking capabilities when in the wilds)
Climbing, like many Wood Elves, she can scale trees and certain buildings easily. Most Orc and Shadow Elf buildings are beyond these skills, however.
