-The game may or may not feature 'adult content' I will allow every player to assert how far do they want to go in regards to sexual content. Therefore, it will be posted to extreme section. Whilst the game may not involve any sexual encounters for one player, I am capable of bringing in extreme content for those who want it. That said, the extreme content will only happen if and when it is relevant to the story. (Whatever players get up to with each other is up to them, but respect the limits of others. Don't go raping someone who didn't want rape in their roleplay)-
Also, there will be very violent scenes, and gory scenes. You've been warned.
Legendary is a multi-part fantasy roleplay set in a fantasy world much like earth in Victorian times. It will utilize a system built by myself, for the sake of simplicity. The system is easy enough to learn, and grants freedom for any kind of actions to be decided, without you needing to have full knowledge of the rules. In essence, you may play as if you were playing a free-form roleplay, but realize that the actions you decide to do in your post, may fail.
The first part is about The Arena, where it all begins, where the PC characters stumble upon their new powers and learn to use them. It's about their trials in learning to utilize and control their new powers. The roleplay will slowly steer toward more and more epic scale, as it moves from following the learning experiences of our heroes, to their quest to carve their names to the history of the world for eternity. To become truly "Legendary."
Legendary: The Arena
City of Gravenport has never been the most savoury of them all. Crime runs rampant in its streets. Governed by officials that have been bribed by the worst kind of criminals, it is unlikely that the people of Gravenport are going to be rid of this crime wave in a long long time. Gravenport exits in the world of Aether, much resembling the Victorian Era earth. Though in Aether magic and miracles are common place, so do the forces of the dark show their ugly faces in quite a terrifying fashion.
But back to Gravenport, as we were. Run by crime lords, the law department of this city hardly makes much of a difference. In fact, people are hardly ever locked up for actual crimes, or if they are, it's because those crimes affected the 'wrong people' Charges are often fabricated, for various reasons. Someone wants your land? If they got the money, but you are unwilling to sell, they might just use their money to have you put away for a murder you never committed, even when there is no victim. Albeit in Gravenport, there's always a victim. Somewhere.
Though the governing body is corrupt through and through, maybe the worst feature of the city is it's unique way of punishing criminals. "The Arena." It was introduced by the city officials, who reasoned it as a 'deterrent.' Their excuse was that to get rid of the crime, the punishment had to be horrendous. It had to be something that would make people more afraid than the capital punishment. They would make the convicts destroy each other. Much like the gladiators of ancient days, they were pitted against each other. Though they would pit anyone against anyone, there would be no gender restrictions.
At first the Arena was met with shock horror, but as years slowly ground past it became a popular past time. And the crowd acted like a pack of vicious animals, chanting for fighters to kill, to show no mercy. And often times, they would chant for them to rape their opponent. While many of the convicts were there through no fault of their own, there certainly has always been the element of vicious bastards, who would do the crowds bidding to humiliate their opponent further.
You are one of the convicts. You are to have your first fight today. An underdog in the eyes of many, that is for sure, as the newcomers are often fed to the more experienced fighters who have gained popularity. As you wake up in your cell this morning, you are feeling dizzy, you had a very strange dream for sure, and somehow, for some reason, you feel different today. Maybe it's just the nerves, maybe it's just the impending doom...
Without your knowledge, some kind of entity has granted you powers you never imagined, though you do not yet know this. Hopefully you'll learn to utilize your new-found power soon, or you might just end up as another corpse for the clean-up crew to handle...
[b]Afflictions:[/b] (Most likely none, at the beginning of the RP)
[b]Possessions:[/b] (Only the clothes you were wearing when arrested, at the beginning.)
[b]Skills:[/b] (Choose 2 combat skills or 1 combat skill plus the magic skill. If you choose magic, PM me what kind of magic you want and I'll work on it with you. You may also choose two other skills outside of combat/magic. Most of the time I won't need you to PM me about the two extra skills, but if you feel the need to clarify, feel free to PM me, or if I need to figure something out, I will PM you.)
[b]Attributes:[/b] (You have 30 points to distribute, no maximum per attribute. Take a note that 3-4 would be average human stat. Your characters are augumented by a blessing. Do realize that certain actions will be rolled according to these stats (Lifting a rock will require a strength roll)
Strength: ( Hand to Hand, Swords, Blunt weapons/Axes, Bows, Polearms, Dual Wield)
Nerve: (Guns, Bows/Crossbows, Casting Magic. Whips/Lasso)
Agility: (Evade, Fencing, Whips/Lasso, Hand To Hand)
Perception: (Guns, Bows, Fencing, Dual-Wield, Blunt weapons/Axes, Evade)
Might: (Casting Magic, Power of spells.
[b]Additional:[/b] (If you do not want Rape, or other extreme sex acts to happen, this is where you say it, otherwise they will probably happen at some point. Also, if you want to be practically set-up for extreme occurrences, this is the place to mention that as well. Though it doesn't decrease your chances to die, it will increase the number of events where you might get sexually assaulted. (Such assaults may lead to death though, with some bad luck and bad decisions, so again, be careful)
You do not need to understand the system, to be able to play it, but there are a few key points.
You gain stats and skills by training in that particular area. That is to say, if you keep fighting people with a rapier, your fencing skill and speed are likely to develop. (That is to say, there are no 'levels')
You will not be having health points, mana points, or anything of the like visible for you. You will get a text description relating to your state of health whilst in fight, or whilst otherwise hurt.
There aren't many attributes in game to keep it simple. The main stats are: Strenght, Agility, Nerve, Perception and Might. (Might relates to magical abilities) Intelligence is not included, as the players will have to use their own intelligence to figure out problems, and it is not necessary for combat in the system. Please note that there will sometimes be dice rolls outside of combat! If your character has 0 in a stat, it means they literally have practically none of it. (0 magic also means 0 magic resistance. 0 Nerve means that your character may be easily distracted by certain events/abilities, 0 strength means you can barely lift your weapon, 0 agility means you are as flexible as a steel pipe, 0 perception means you won't notice if a dragon lands in front of you and kills your party around you.)
The skills are as follows.
Weapons:Firearms, Bows/Crossbows, Whips/Lasso, Pole arms, Swords, Fencing, Blunt Weapons/Axes, Staves, Throwing, Dual-Wield. (Fencing relates to fencing swords only, swords relates to long swords, short swords, daggers and two handed swords among others.)
Other Combat skills: Hand to Hand, Evade, Magic Resistance. (Evade relates to dodging attacks, weapon skills and Hand to Hand relate to blocking and parrying)
Magic: Every magi has their own set of magical abilities and they may not be listed here. If you wish to play magic user, you come up with the idea on how your magic works, and work with me to set the power of the abilities so that the balance is not broken.
Other: You may have a certain amount of skills/abilities outside combat and magic. These are decided by you, and I will work them into the game with you in a manner that doesn't break the balance.
Notice that humans are the only playable race.
