Cydilla

A sprawling metropolis of gargantuan proportions. Starting out as a trading town on the delta at the mouth of the Cydillen River and the Great Sea, its growth was mainly due to its prime trading location. I went from a small trading outpost to a city, spreading quickly as an independent city state that, unlike many other trading cities, made it's own laws to favor trade and open growth. And grow it did, and quickly too, becoming a haven for all those with a mind for profit and a quick eye. The trading center of the world it was soon called, with a government forming, a monarchy put in place. Walls were built and quickly forgotten as the city expanded further and further. It became an unofficial haven for all people, of all races and social standings. All crimes elsewhere were forgotten, the slate wiped clean, and kept clean so long as your proved to be a dedicated member of society and caused no disruption in the everflowing river of business.

The world's largest slave market was established there, as well as a famously large gladiator arena. The monarchy, shrewd characters themselves made sure that the whole city was furnished with access to the sewers and fountains for water. While a standing army was placed, these were more engaged in the use of keeping the peace in the city, as well as helping out trading allies and thus increasing profits even more. A city that seemed to know no limits. The Queen of the city was well loved and her family also. It was a land where anything was possible, so long as you worked hard to achieve it.

But of course, nothing lasts forever...

In the cold, unforgiving north, where men were bred to be hard for survival, another quite different civilization took foot in the snowy mountains. Barbarians some called them, and great warriors. Tall, lean and powerful, these too were hungry to expand and grow and flourish, but by different means. War was their trade, steel their bargaining chip. As a nearly all human civilization, the newest king, a man that arose to the top as the greatest fighter and warrior in the ranks, declared that non-humans were lesser citizens, to be used only for menial labor or as slaves, nothing more. As a result of this stance, as well as a large massacre of non-humans in the Barbarian's capital city, the city of Cydilla, which was largely populated by non-humans, ruled by a family famed to be of mixed blood, imposed trading sanctions upon the Northern Kingdom until they should change their stance on non-human races.

But the king was too proud and too set in his ways to change. Despite this, he was no fool and knew that if Cydilla refused to trade with them, so would everybody else to avoid risking sanctions upon themselves as well, so he did something that none had ever considered doing in the 700 years of Cydilla's existence:

He gathered his armies, and conquered the city.

The shock was intense. While Cydilla was well known for having the finest swordsmen and women on earth, with the mash up of fighting styles from hundreds of different places in the world, these were in small amount and severely handicapped by the ferocity of barbarian warriors. As the city held a small standing army, the invasion was quickly completed, but hardly complete. The people of the city, especially the non-humans, reared against the severely racist regime, and while the Barbarian troops worked hard to maintain their dominion, the city itself seemed to be against their rule. A resistance was quickly formed, populated by the survivors of the Cydillian Guard as well as the criminal element that had thrived under the city's easy-going nature, and was uncomfortable under the rule of these overbearing outsiders. They were helped by the many citizens of Cydilla who were against the regime and yet had families to protect, but there are those that either sympathize with the invaders, or with the hefty rewards offered for helping them catch the pesky resistance fighters. With the royal family captured, allies of Cydilla are reluctant to rush to the city's aid, as they feel that the barbarians currently hold all the cards, but if the royal family, most important of which would be the Queen, manages to escape their captors' grasp, the possibilities would expand.

But this royal family is under constant guard in the most secure wing of the Cydillian Palace, and while the Barbarian king is loth to marry the Queen to solidify and legalize his claim on the city, as she is well known to be of mixed blood, he is growing increasingly desperate to gain victory over this city, before the balance of power shifts once more...


What the Game Entails:
The idea behind the story, and the overhanging plot, is the Barbarian King, played by yours truly, trying to solidify his rule over the city of Cydilla, with the people, and the Queen, played by my Co-GM Viper, doing their best to stop them. But it's not that simple. This is mostly a Sandbox game with a overhanging plot, and thus your characters can play along with the plot, or create and play with your own. Believe me, in a city as large as Cydilla, the amount of conflicts are bordering on endless. There will be blood, there will be intrigue, there will be red herrings, plots, schemes, battles and sex, so there's something for everyone. The kind of characters are endless, as are the possibilities. There are rules, naturally, but few enough to allow smooth and fun Roleplaying. Players and characters of any gender, creed, sexual preference and social standing

The game will be placed in the Extreme section, as wars and occupations can get ugly, and for the sake of keeping things realistic and pretty much open to how things develop.

Characters and Races:
This is a tentative interest check, so I will not be posting the Character sheet templates yet, and the details of the world will be further explained in a world-building thread that is currently being worked on. However the races to be used will be mainly the fantastical kind, Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Goblins, Orcs, etc. I am leaving this list open, as if you want to play a race that's not on the list, shoot me a PM and we can hash it out. Face claims will also be addressed, so we don't have any doppelgangers wandering about.

However,  characters in the Barbarian army will be strictly human. Gender is not a big deal for them, so long as you can kick ass on a general basis.

My co-GM Viper and myself, will be playing the Queen of Cydilla, ideas for characters are:

Royal Family characters (I purposefully left the number for the amount of people in the family)
Noble characters (The rich and influential of the city, as well as advisers of the Queen and her court)
Resistance characters (Going from thieves, assassins, regular citizens to brothel owners and employees, blademasters and survivors of the city guard, and heads of the local guilds and organized crime units. The slots for the two leaders of the rebellion, the general of the Guard and a leader of the local criminal element being what I originally had in mind, shoot me or Viper a PM and we will talk about it.
Neutral characters (Visitors of just about any race, profession or social standing, regular(?) citizens)
Barbarian characters (Choices ranging from Generals, Commanders, warriors of great standing like champions and skilled commanders, even the King's second in command or advisers.)

And so on and so forth. Let your imagination go wild on this one! No, seriously! The only actually taken characters will be the Barbarian King and the Queen of Cydilla.

Details on magical characters and other races will be shown in the upcoming world-building thread. If you want any advance notices, shoot me a PM and I will explain the concepts to you.

Barbarian King

Dakeyras Firefist (His Nom-De-Guerre, as it were. His born surname was discarded one he took the throne)


Queen of Cydilla

Kahliya Viola (This would be the family name, so all other Royal family members would have Viola as their last names)


Rules:

The following are the rules and regulations set for for the game. Keep them in mind at all times:

  • Be civil to one another. Do not fight. Do not squabble. If an altercation between players occurs, please bring the matter to me or a Co-GM. We will be perfectly happy to sort out the discrepancy between the players and arrive to the most fair and just solution allowed. Do not turn us into a broken family. Please. We are all adults here.
  • Do not God Mod another player's character! Due to the nature of the characters it is easy to accidentally cross into this territory. Please do not control their actions. YOU control YOUR character. On that same tangent please do not make yourself invulnerable to everything. Nothing more boring than a “perfect” character.
  • NO PLAYER CHARACTER MAY BE KILLED WITHOUT PLAYER'S EXPLICIT PERMISSION TO DO SO. There is no leeway to this rule. Don't do it. Just don't.
  • Never, EVER do something to a player's character they do not like. Consult with the player before making a decision that you think might be a bother to them, even if they list it as okay in their Ons and Offs. Communication is important between players for any kind of fun! Please use it.
  • Communication is important. While the posting speed for the game is yet to be decided, please let us know, once the game has started, if you are going to be gone for more than a couple of days. Real life takes precedence, obviously, and you won't get booted from the game for not posting quick enough, but letting the people that you are writing with, or at least the GMs would be appreciated. We don't want to wonder what's happening to you, and miss you.
  • Please have a good grasp of the English Language and Grammar Structure before applying. We fancy individuals that use complete sentences, full thought, and detail their posts with enough for another character to react to. I am not tying certain post lengths to this game, but I beg you not to use one to three line posts. That would be VERY difficult for another player to react to. Use your best judgment, but give enough for the players to respond to. Multi-Paragraph is best. Remember, a paragraph is a construction of thought usually ranging between three to five sentences.
  • Please use tags in the header of your post.All posts should have tags noting who your character is talking too, about or noticing.  This will help people find conversations that involve their characters in threads that may hold multiple conversations.  Acceptable tags are: another character’s name, OPEN or CLOSED.  Open means anyone can join the conversation or scene.  CLOSED means that player does not want the scene interrupted by other players. A post header template will be provided once interest has been shown in the game.
  • Players are responsible for not creating Paradoxes. Players are allowed to create multiple scenes for their characters at different times of the day or week simultaneously.  It is the players responsibility of they choose to do this to not create paradoxes by playing multiple scenes that occur at the same time. Please pay attention.

Depending on the eventual scope and magnitude that this game might take, Viper and myself might or might not be needing some more Co-GMs. If you are interested, shoot one or both of us a PM.


I think that's all to start with. Thanks for reading, and have a great 2015!

GM Deamonbane - Lord Commander Dakeyras Firefist Application (Reference sheet)

Deamonbane

Character Name: Lord Commander Dakeyras Firefist
Alliance: Barbarians
Title: King
Age: 39
Face Claim: Karl Urban
Other Images:
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide

::General::

--Appearance--
Race:
Human with Elf Blood (shhhhh)

Height:
Six feet, three inches tall (190.5 Centimeters)

Weight:
185 lbs. (84 Kg)

Hair Color:
Black

Eye Color:
Dark Brown

Sexual Preference:
Heterosexual

Distinguishing Marks:
Scars all over his body, a branded snake on his right forearm, tattoo of an eagle, wings stretched and talons flaring on his back.

Items:
He dresses in black, as the Kings are required, either in utilitarian robes or the King's Armor, fitted to him perfectly. His weapons of choice are a pair of 32-inch sabers, strapped to his back in a single scabbard. A dagger can be usually found at his side, and maybe a shield on his back if he is in battle. His station is indicated both by his garb and by a ruby necklace that is always around his neck, instead of a crown as used by most kings.


::Character::

Personality:
A cunning man, and a decent change from the usual blockheads that usually ruled over the Tribes. fiercely intelligent and more than cunning, he sees anything that gets between him and what he wants as an obstacle to be disposed of. Has few friends, none of them too close, and his whole family died when he was a child, so he has learned not to attach himself to anyone. He is set in his ways, and in those of his people, and is very popular among the war mongers in his court.

A cold as he is cunning, he is a man to whom the end justifies the means. Calculating, stern and firm, he is not above showing mercy when it suits him. He is a devout follower of the new ways, and where some feel that the old ways of not finding any use for non-humans, he knows the benefit of using the lesser races to his own ends. He is paranoid to a fault, knowing that just around the corner could be a fighter that can oust him, and he is determined to advance his people before that happens.

Biggest Fear:
Failure, embarassment, betrayal.

Talents/Flaws:
An expert bladesman and archer, tactician and negotiator. Also some skills in the world of politics and trade. A consummate warrior, he is well versed in the arts of warfare, and has some skill as a healer.

His lean frame makes handling heavier weapons, like warhammers and battle-axes. He is proud and therefore hard to deal with when angry or frustrated. Tends to do things on a whim when in a mood like that.

Mage:
No

Used spells:
Not Relevant

History:
Born and raised to be what he is now, Dakeyras was born into the family of the King of his time. Despite the fact that he was raised to be a warrior from the moment that he could walk, Dakeyras (Known as Dak by his friends) was a scrawny child, a runt, and regularly bullied and beaten by his older brothers, and even his father, the king. Thus driven to excell, Dakeyras knew that he couldn't win by pure brute strength, so he studied the various art forms of war, including the elven form of Blade Dancing. He trained himself in this art, and found that he was a natural.

His deceptive form of using the blade soon saw him rising in the ranks among his brothers, his step light and always in balance, his lean form agile and stronger than it looked. As he grew older, he grew taller as well, taller and more slender than most of his brothers. His father noticed this unconventional skill, as well as the fact that he seemed to have more brains than the rest of the bunch, he took Dak under his wing and tutored him personally. Dakeyras had not forgotten the way that he had been treated as a scrany youth, but he took advantage of this extra training, putting his hatred for his progenitor aside for the time being.

It flared once more when it was discovered that his mother was, in fact, part elf. His father was enraged by this and, before Dakeyras could intervene, decapitated the woman. Enraged, as the young man loved his mother dearly, he attacked his father. They were stopped before the fight could continue, and an official challenge was extended. Since the throne of the Tribes did not pass from father to son, but instead from the king to the man that killed him in honest combat, or failing that, in a series of duels of those considered the best fighters, Dakeyras fought and killed his father in the duel, even going so far as to humiliate him by cutting off both his ears during the duel before stabbing his father through the chest, purposefully missing the heart and letting the man die a slow death as he drowned in his own blood.

However, Dakeyras knew that if the knowledge of him being of impure blood spread, his place on the throne would be contested, so he ordered all those that knew of his mother's, and therefore his, shame killed, and proceeded to instill a firm dislike of non-humans on his realm to hide his impure bloodline. However, secretly, he knew that not all non-human efforts were evil, himself being an example of this, so he secretly ordered that his army be furnished with dwarf-made weapons and armor, as well as taking on dwarf war machines, training the best fighters against captured orcs, having his generals study dwarf and elf battle tactics and apply them to their troops.

However, after a plague struck out in one of the villages under his command, non-humans were blamed for this and a massacre ensued. Cydilla, already disliking this more fervent racism, when word reached the Queen's ears of this new atrocity, sanctions were put in place, and all trading companies in Cydilla refused to trade with the Northern tribes until justice was served.

Dakeyras knew that without the trading lines in Cydilla, and with the results of the sanctions, his people would soon starve with winter approaching. He could not side with the non-humans and risk his secret seeing the light of day, so there was only one thing he could do: Invasion.

This looks incredibly interesting. I would therefore like to express my interest in joining. I already have a character in mind, that being an Elven fighter/mage. He could either be an adviser to the queen or a neutral come in after the invasion to help the resistance. His is primarily of good alignment. Just for general idea of what he is like, think a high fantasy version of a Jedi.

Hello there, Elf!

There's definitely room for a character like that. I like me some Elf Jedi *grins* I mean... Elven fighter/mage. Maybe even as a close friend of the royal family, and adviser/personal bodyguard to the Queen perhaps? Totally up to you, naturally.

(Please remember that any nonsense that may spew from my mouth has to be approved by Deamonbane. So what I say is never set in stone.)

I agree, also we could have the idea that he is the right hand advisor of the queen, and is the one who helped her sneak out during the invasion? But of course we would leave decisions and ideas open.

Thank you, Deamon and Viper.

I like the idea of him being friend and adviser and of course he would defend when it was called for. He would definitely be at her side for the invasion and as things obviously got bad would sneak her out.

Looks very interesting :) I'll certainly keep my eye on it. Though before I commit, want to ensure I'd have time..seem to of volunteered for quite a few plays as of late.

I haven't had time to read through all of it yet, but it looks good and I'm interested.

You definitely need to read through it all, it only gets more interesting the more you read.

Hey Kendra, It's been a long time. Hopefully this time MC won't have YC wanting to kill him at their first meeting.

That is as it should be.

An elf blacksmith? I think it would take something pretty drastic to have that wanting to kill my Elf fighter/mage right off the bat. Other wicked things though.

Temperament like a Jedi and the tack of a very experienced diplomat, the quality would have be really below standards for him to complain about it. Unless your elf simply takes offense to him not being interested in any kind of sword at all if he still has his wand. ;D

Well, hello Bane.  This sounds interesting, if you can tolerate me, that is.  ;)

I will bookmark this and watch how things develop.  I have a tentative character in mind but it will greatly depend on what other characters there are.

Am I to assume that there are other members of the royal family that did not make it out of the city?

Is the queen actually hidden away inside the city or did she make it out?
