An Age of Ash and Wing
Welcome! This is an idea I've been toying with for a while and would like to start out small until I get into the flow of things. I'm thinking of six (6) players total for now—not counting me.
It's an original Dungeons & Dragons-type setting. I'd say bordering on low fantasy; magic will be rare, if used at all. Lots of the “monsters” in stories are just that, stories. Dragons, wyverns, unicorns, whatever, are just myths, legends. Look at it as if magic had slowly faded from the world and nowadays heroes of legend are revered or used in place of gods and goddesses in terms of oaths, cusses, etc.
There are, I want to say, four known races. Elves (city, wood), dwarves (mountains, underground), humans (of any appearance), and orcs (city, wood). It is possible for all four to interbreed, though extremely rare. There are no “good” or “evil” races. They all have their faults. Unlike most fantasy settings, the elves are almost the same in human height and size, though more inclined on the slimmer side/smaller-boned side.
As it is in other tales, the humans are the shortest lived and the most intense. Elves do live a long time, but are not immortal. Dwarves also live a considerable while. Same with the orcs. Coloring, appearances, et cetera, are a free-for-all. Have fun coming up with ideas!
If you've made it this far, yay!
Welcome… to my world. A planet with one sun, one moon, many stars and stories behind them. Their legends, stories, myths all have many fantastical creatures that none had seen anymore. Long since discarded to be exaggerations, people often pay no mind to the stories. Told only for fun and song around the fire.
Of course, as it is, there's still not much by way of peace. Bandits, wars, expansions of kingdoms and destructions of cities all happen.
For the most part, I will be trusting players to not godmode or be impossible to fight. I don't like using the dice, though I may, at times, use it for maybe big boss fights. Minor fights, eh, have fun, though when it comes to fights, period, we will be taking turns.
I'd like posting to be at least once a week, minimum. Be detailed in your posts, give me thoughts and feelings, descriptions, as much as you can. I don't want one-liners. I can understand that sometimes all we can do is a sparse paragraph, but try not to make it a frequent occurrence. Excellent grasp of English, grammar, and punctuations, is preferable, but I won't punish anyone for not being a native speaker. (Even I make mistakes and I pride myself on being a fairly decent writer!)
Okay. That's all I can think of! Questions, inquiries, expressions of interest, please, bombard me!
