For generations, the Arrowind family had watched over and ruled the kingdom of Soravel. The great hero, Orik Arrowind, had been appointed by the golden dragon generations ago that his family shall forever rule over the majestic kingdom, so long as the values of truth and virtue remain deeply webbed into his descendants hearts. Orik started a new golden age for the world, with Soravel leading the way in a new era of peace. In each generation of Arrowind since Orik, the values remained the same. Truth and virtue remained bolstered by strength in order to rule Soravel with a benevolent and equal hand. However, all good things must come to an end.
The kingdom neighboring Soravel, Lancor, suddenly invaded the golden kingdom without warning, breaking through the Soravel forces without the slightest amount of struggle thanks to their brutal preemptive attack. By the time the forces of Soravel realized that they were being invaded, half of the country had already been overtaken by the overwhelming strength of the Lancor assault. After two months of brutal war, the Lancor army was already breaking down the gates of Soravel castle. The king of Soravel somehow managed to escape the assault with his son and daughter, fleeing to Soravel's ally kingdom of Anderien. The Queen of Anderien heard the tale of the king, and is currently mobilizing her forces in order to counterattack the Lancor forces and reclaim Soravel.
However, this is not a story about the prince or princess of Soravel, this is a tale about the prince of Lancor, a young man who saw the change in his father. A young man who saw something dark and evil behind the new powers of the Lancor army, a young man who abandoned his home before Lancor became a villain to the world. This young man is now traveling the world in search of answers, wondering how such incredible and dark powers could have been planted in his father. Tragically for the young prince, there are those who don't want him to see the truth behind his kingdom's invasion. There are those that would see his blood spilled for meddling in the affairs of those much, much higher then a single prince.
Luckily for the Lancor prince though, he is not alone in his quest. Others have come to join him for reasons and motives all their own, rather it's loyalty to the Lancor heir, or a quest of revenge, or simply a desire to see justice prevail, the Lancor prince will not stand alone in his battle to see his kingdom restored to what is right and just.
Anybody interested? I'm allowing a maximum of 3 characters per player. Of course, if you only want one or two, you're more then welcome to do that. If you want to start out using one character, then want to introduce more as the story goes on (much like 'recruiting' characters in the games) then that's also approved and encouraged. And you're also more then welcome to make a new space for a new character by killing off one of your current or former characters. After all, characters die in the games, so it makes sense that you can kill off your own people... should you wish it. Use the same general outline for my character sheets in order to make your own.
One thing though, I'm only allowing first tear classes right now, don't worry, promotions will happen as the game proceeds. We'll be playing by shadow dragon classes, since that's the most recent fire emblem game to come out. (And I haven't played the 'path of radiance' series per lack of gamecube). By that token, ANY first tear classes are available. Knights, Myrmadons, thiefs, anything except Lords.
Weapons should be pretty obvious, if your class can equip them, you can have them. Common sense applies of course, don't go equipping your knight with a silver lance right from the get-go.
If you have any questions, I'll be more then happy to answer them.Name:
Alister (Lancoros) NorthwindAge:
Rapier, iron sword (If you're a spell casting class, this is where you'll put your spells)Other items:
Alister spent much of his childhood spending time with the prince and princess of Soravel. He and Soravel's prince later became dueling partners in their later years, honing their skills with a blade against one another. Because of his time around the royalty of Soravel, Alister didn't turn out like most princes do. He wasn't spoiled, he didn't take his life for granted, he did a many things different. By many regards, he was a Soravel prince that was born in Lancor. And when his father started acting strangely, he was the first to notice, and the first to try and reach through. After his attempts to stop his father from invading Soravel nearly landed him in the dungeon, he slipped away from the castle, starting his journey to uncover what had possessed his father.Personality:
A strong and serious leader most of the time, he acts with the maturity of a man twice his age. However, when the situation doesn't call for a hero or a leader, he allows himself to relax and become a teenager once again.Other Remarks:
(Anything extra you feel like sharing about your character.)
I look forward to seeing who all's interested in taking part in this journey of mine. Sign up now if you'd like a place.
