First question: Do you know what League of Legends is? Do you know the lore behind it?
Watch this video.LORE - League of Legends Lore in a Minute!
Congratulations! You now have all the information required to participate in this RP on a basic level. More information helps, but this is all you need.
This RP will be taking place just as much OFF of the Fields of Justice as ON them. There will be randomly generated scrimmages for funsies, and you'll have plenty of time to set up dramatic events both in combat and out of it. The early story will focus mostly on the political tensions between Demacia and Noxus, and start to get more and more out of hand as time goes on. Playing as canon characters is permitted, with certain exceptions.
Characters who are off limits for plot reasons
Characters who are VERY LIKELY to be significant to plot, but are not off limits
Anybody explicitly enlisted in the militaries of either Demacia or Noxus
Tryndamere (and by proxy Ashe, and BY PROXY OF THAT, Sejuani)
Anybody not listed that I may or may not come up with a cool set piece for.
Characters that I would personally like to control, but would give up if another person wants them
Now, with that cleared up, read on about the actual mechanics of the RP. The only thing I ask if you decide to play as a canon character is that you be faithful to that character's personality and background. Riven, for example, won't be shagging up with Darius any time in the near future.
Now then, this is what you wanna know about the RP, and how it actually works. It will be totally freeform, however, there will be plenty of time for both character development and interactions, as well as combat scenes where you're allowed a bit of action. The plot will slowly and progressively thicken over time, so please be patient. I'm doing it this way so that none of the 'bad apples' that every Elliquiy RP gets without fail won't be involved in any major plot events, thus snowballing the entire RP into ruin. Bad apples is my really nice way of saying "People who post in the interest check and list characters, but never post in the IC... ever".
That brings me to my next point of discussion: posting schedules. I'm an extremely laid back GM, trust me, I really am. However, I'm sick of entire RPs being ruined simply because people fall off the face of the earth without being held accountable for their roles. As such, I request that you post at least once per week. If you haven't posted in a week, you get a warning. Ignore the warning, and 3 days later, you're out of the RP. That's NOT an unreasonable request, I don't think. I just want for everybody to have fun and not be held up because of one person. If too many people don't respond and the RP dies, fine, at least it was a group effort instead of one person that caused the failure. FAQs (before they're asked)
Q: Will it be freeform? Or will you have a system for the combat?
A: Apparently you didn't read the rant above.
. It's 100% freeform, even in combat. However, I will be expecting players to keep some sense of realism within their posts. Any explicit god-modeing or moving other people's characters will warrant a slap on the wrist, followed by greater punishments by repeat offenders.
Q: Canon characters allowed? OC characters allowed?
A: Both. Knock yourself out. If you're asking for canon characters, then that meant that you saw the list in the second spoiler box, and you already likely have an idea of who you wanna play as anyway.
Q: I've never played this game, can I still take part?
A: Yup. You might be a little confused from time to time, but I wanna keep this open to as many people as possible, and I'll describe events and characters as though you're seeing them for the first time in this RP. I'm not too big on most of the LoL lore myself, so I'm making up about 95% of the story right off the cuff. If you wanna be on the same lore level as me, just read the biographies of the major characters that I introduce and you're done.
Q: Where's the character sheet outline?
A: There isn't one yet, I'm just checking to see if anybody's interested right now.tl;dr
Oh come on... the thread wasn't THAT long. Read it, lemme know what you think and if you're interested, and we can start getting a few things thrown together. With that, have a nice day, and happy RPing.
