I have decided not to run this RP. My apologies to all who have expressed interest and/or created characters. If anyone else would like to run this RP, please feel free.
I notice there used to be a Valdemar/Velgarth-based RP, but it seems to be defunct.
Info on Valdemar from wiki
Would anyone be interested in playing if I started a new one? It would take place about 100 years post-Mage Storms Trilogy, when the streams are more settled; Valdemar has been in tenuous contact with the Empire, but someone's causing problems... or if you have a better idea for a plot, let me know.
If I get enough interest I'll post links to Character generation information and such. :)
Characters should be approved before posting to help keep a balance (not too many Tayledras, changechildren, etc). If you want a truly strange character (change-child, etc.), be prepared to provide a plausible back-story. People from other countries seldom just "pop up" in Haven. If they're not from Valdemar, why are they here?
Non-humanoids can't be Heralds or Herald-mages (mainly because they can't ride Companions), but can be Mages, Healers, Bards, Students, etc. You can play any human or non-human sentient race that appears in the books, but not races that don't (no nagas, harpies, etc.).
If playing a Herald, you may also play your Companion, or allow another player to be your Companion. This RP will center around the Court and Collegia in Haven, but side-story threads will be allowed to allow for traveling to other places. Classes will not be RPd, but you may have a Herald-trainee if you like.
