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.
( This game will not have 'monsters', or anything non-humanoid. All Characters must be human, or something like, such as elven or some such. This game will be in the Extreme section, as I expect torture of characters, as well as fighting. Disposable characters, or characters willing to be tortured very welcome!!
This game will be a Medieval setting.)
(The Queen will be played by me)The Elementals: (Some of these may already be claimed, depending on interest)
Air (female) Elemental 'Mentors':
(One for each Elemental)These will be people who will know of the Prophecy, and will know of each ones Power and how to train to use it. Can maybe be a 'grew up together' best friend? Older family member? Village witch/warlock? Open to any ideas, as well as can be more then 1 (This idea may or may not still be viable)Queens People:
Basic Evil Deliciousness Rebels:
Rebel Hunters (These shall be polar opposite of the Queens Hunters, yet trained to take on said Hunters)
Basic Good Guys
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 (if applicable) will take over 'training'. All the Elementals and said mentors will know of the Rebels, and will seek them out. Each Elemental will be in a separate part of the Kingdom, having grown up in different environments, and will end up coming together in the Queens City. How this happens is up to the players.
The end result of this story will be the Queens death. I expect the Elementals to eventually come together, honing and strengthening their Powers, with the intent on taking the Queen out and bringing Peace to the Land and its People. The Queen will only be able to be bested if all the Elementals work together.
The Queen has utter control of all
the Elements, including Spirit, which she uses in a corrupt manner to give her strength, and keep her youth and beauty; doing a secret ritual once every year. The Land surrounding her Castle has begun to die, miles of wasteland, but she cares not.
This is just an interest check for right now.
I will expand on the story idea more (Kingdom name, city names, and the such) if enough interest is garnered. 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 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/few paragraphs per post is expected. This WILL NOT
be a fast paced game. I personally can't really post more then once a week (and sometimes if that!), 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. I am seeking DEDICATED players! People who are willing to stick the game out, even if posting slows a bit. We all know the muse can be finicky, but sometimes slow but steady can win the race!
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. Feel free to post any questions here, or PM me with them.
I hope this is enough to spark muses!!
