Ad&dish worldTop Character:
Your characterBottom Character:
Elven PrinceMy Preference:
Three years ago something happened in the world that no one has ever been able to explain. Every humanoid being woke up with out memory of their past. The only people they knew were the ones directly related to them... friends, acquaintances were all forgotten. Their skills of trade were still useful though they had no recollection of learning. Some other important things were also forgotten, but no one could remember them to notice. Along with history books, tome and scrolls of magic would not be found on any mostly empty book shelf. Devices of magical use are more or less looked upon as paperweights. Religion has also vanished as if it never were. Death from injuries are very high now as healers learn to use what nature has grown to repair what men have wrought. It is not looked upon strangely for people to walk by grand buildings once filled with dedicated worshipers because not one person notices that the buildings are there. It is not just humans, but elves, dwarves, halfling... even orcs and other of their kind.
What foul deed that caused the goods to abandon the world? No one knows to question... but there are tiny stirrings of the past that are drifting into the present. Some gods did not like relinquishing the power they held in the world to eventually fade and die without worshipers to sustain them. They began to visit their old followers in dreams bent on shaping this now ignorant world towards evil. Those deities bound by their word did nothing at all. However there are some entities that believe that sometimes you have to break rules for the greater good and they are whispering their secrets into dreams of those with potential to do great good... even if the ones they chose would break laws. Yet mortals go on forging a new life they were forced to create since the Awaking...
What you will learn first if you so choose to pick up the challenge that is this game, is that the princess of the King has been kidnapped. You will be hired out of a tavern to take a message to one of the king's old comrades in one of the more dangerous areas of the kingdom near the elven boarder. Simple task? Sounds that way doesn't it...
This was a game for a table top role play so I have a general idea of the goals. The character I will play will be a male elf modified for sword dancing class. (This will be free form) He will also be the one discovering magic. The other character can be human or Elven, rouge or fighter. There will be a tragic twist to the end, but should be a long story.Forever NightSetting:
Unseelie PrinceBottom Character:
Son of a Nobleman or Seelie NobleMy Preference:
Once upon a time, long long ago and far far away… life was not as it is today. The world was much colder, the days shorter, the nights darker and life far more harsh. The Prince of the Unseelie (dark fae) is weary of the growing brightness in the world. Already the times his people could travel freely changed with the spinning of the earth. As the weather got warmer the daylight hours grew. Even he couldn’t only tolerate a limited amount of exposure… and never at midday. But those weaker than him could die. Their Seelie cousins however could walk in the light and the dark. This injustice sparked his hatred his caring for his people fanned it into a fire.
So he has set out to right the world for those under his rule. Starting with the villages and small towns… the remotest of areas, he trapped land and humans into darkness and despair. Superstition, hear and mistrust increasing his magic and influence. Now he is ready for more difficult challenges. Are their any humans who know of fairies? Who believe and know the laws of that magical realm? If so will they being able to stand up to the force behind the scary tales used to keep children on the straight and narrow? What will the Seelie court do? Will they make themselves known to the humans and aid them or will this be a struggle on three fronts with the humans most likely to loose?Hall of the Mountain KingSetting:
Mountain kingBottom Character:
Ashik's people became sick with an epidemic that affected young and old, frail and strong. He had been traveling when it happened and not allowed back into his village. They had tried all they could and it seemed not even the power of their gods could cure them. In desperation, Ashik placed his hope on a myth older than time... The book of life. According to the legend it was guarded by an insane, immortal king in a kingdom built inside a mountain. He had found a door in a cave of the mountain just a few miles away when he was younger. That had to be it... of course he believed in the book of life, but no man could be immortal...
Something Wicked This Way Comes
Setting: Modern England
Top Character: Potions teacher
Bottom Character: Undercover Investigator
My Preference: Undercover Investigator
This is idea is based on this picture (which of course was influenced by harry potter, but that world and history will not be used)
Dmitri had just been hired by the magic magistrates office as an investigating officer in the United States when a series of murders in England shocked the secretive magic community. Because of his skills, youthful looks and the fact that he was an unknown, he was sent to England as and undercover investigator. His personal records were magically (and irreversibly) altered in case he should be investigated. It was his job to get into the magic underground where it was feared that some wanted to change the balance of magic and perhaps use their skills to wreck havoc in the mundane world.
Unfortunately for him, it landed her back in a University taking advanced potions from one of the suspects... and he barely passed potion 101.
Blood Tipped ArrowsFollow MeSetting:
Setting: begins in a small village on the boarder of Elven and human lands
Top Character: Elf
Bottom Character: Human
My Preference: Human
Plot: Visik is one of the best archers in the human kingdom. Now retired from the Adventure group that his lover is still a part of he finds himself alone and having less faith in his relationship. When the village he has retired to is attacked he is forced to trek into elven lands and is caught by and old acquaintance that is none to happy to see Him. Human and elf find that they must work together to save humans and elves alike from an enemy he could never expect.
I've tried this a couple of times, no offense to the two partners cause they were great. But I want the elf's hatred for humans to be so great that his attraction is a great struggle. So far the working out the emotions has been a little too easy.
The stories that you learned in church about angels and demons, God and Lucifer are not true. It is what God wants you to believe so that he looks like a good guy. Don't worry for feeling duped... I was too and I'm an angel. There used to be two different colored wings in heaven... black and white... and there was no hell. More the most part the black winged angels did all of the unsavory but necessary work because their wings wouldn't get stained. Over time the appreciation for their sacrifice began to wain and they were taken for granted. When Lucifer spoke to God about this and demanded a higher payment for these tasks God got angry because he didn't want to share his power and bounty. See angels and gods feed of the essences of people. Some on laughter and joy... some on suffering. Only god and Lucifer could feed off both. The rest... included dark winged angels feed of joy... at least at first.
A war ensued... a long war that I was too young to witness. But we all know how it turned out. Lucifer and the dark winged angels lost and were forced to live below the earth. The dark winged angels were completely cut off from joy and suffered greatly from starvation. To save their lives Lucifer feed them from the pain of humans until they could do it themselves. Now God would have you believe that these dark winged angels (now know an demons) are heartless, soulless beings with out mercy or the capability of love. I will admit that they are a hardened, dangerous bunch... But on earth a week ago I saw one before he slipped back into hell... there was compassion in his eyes a depth of soul that I had never seen in a Demon before. I could have, should have went in the portal after him... I knew he saw me... I knew he waited, but I was too afraid. Now I will find my own way in and I will know the truth.Dragon's FireSetting:
Secluded mythological kingdomTop Character:
King, dragon riderMy Preference:
King, dragon riderPlot:
Over a thousand years ago there was a war so brutal that it almost destroyed the world. Some areas of the land are still scarred to this very day. It completely destroyed the most majestic race... the dragons... or it was believed. Not trusting humans or each other all surviving dragons went into hiding barely risking themselves to reproduce with their own kind.
Now there was one planning to reclaim what was lost to his kind. He had amassed many of his brothers and sisters to move against human kind and this time enslave them instead of being their 'beasts of burden'. But in a long secluded kingdom that existed only in legend where the dragon throne was rumored to exist awaited his greatest challenge. A human with dragon blood.
The plan this far is for the dragon to believe that he killed the ruler of this kingdom, but not knowing of the ruler's dragon ancestry and natural resistance to fire. The character will lie his way into becoming the dragon's rider.Witch of WestmorlandSetting:

player's choiceBottom Character:
player's choiceMy Preference:
I'm leaving this very vague because the plot would be developed upon the characters we choose to play. I've recently been rereading Mercede's lackey Valdemar series. It was the first (and only) gay friendly fantasy world I've ever read. I'm open to the following combos hawk brother/ herald, hawk brother/hawk brother, herald/herald or if you have another combo you'd like to try suggest it. Any time era is also ok with me as long as you know the series as well as I do.
