Looking for decent roleplayers for a long term RP based on the Sword of Truth series. I prefer that everyone be able to do 200+ words in most posts, but it's not a requirement. I'm fine with shorter posts here and there, as long as you don't make a habit of it. This will be a fantasy/adventure/romance rp, but won't be completely centered around romance. Please read the entire post before replying.
OC's are preferable, but I am willing to allow lower-end canons.(For example Chace's daughter Rachel who would be all grown up now.) In other words, only those who played minor role in the series.
All characters must fit into the SoT world. That means only humans(And wisps if if you wanna play one of those), and no classes like mages, warlocks, druids, etc. Also, no other children of Richard and Kahlan. But if you wanna be the offspring of other couples in the series, feel free. I am also allowing mord-sith and confessors. In this RP, they have made a new line of confessors and mord-sith are no longer tortured, but trained as an elite guard and have the same abilities as traditional mord-sith. The Main character of this RP, who'll be played by me, will have a mord-sith npc as his partner/mate. But if someone wants to take over that role, I will allow it if you come up with a good bio for her. I know this may seem restrictive, but if you've read the series, you know there are plenty of options to choose from.
Also, no god-moding. As the GM here, I will be the only who's allowed to do that and I won't do it often, if ever. The only time I do that is if a player, for example, dodges and avoids all incomming attacks, or if a major event happens, like some big baddie appearing and attacking us.
As far as romance goes, it is encouraged, but only if you do it tastefully. And please don't do it too often, like everytime we stop for the night or at every inn we visit. If I get the impression you're only in this for the romance, I'll kill ya off. Also, don't try to force a romance with another player. Make your intrests known, and if they respond in kind, then continue on. But if they don't respond or show disintrest, just leave it at that and move on.
The plot is as follows:
This is Next Generation/alternate reality RP based on the Sword of Truth series.
After their defeat of the Emperial Order, Richard and Kahlan were finally able to settle down and start a family. And as Shota feared, the bore a son who was not only a gifted Confessor, but also had both sides of the gift. They named him Edynol. After repeated attempts by Shota to kill their son, Richard and Kahlan finally decided to take action against the witch woman. Seeing her possible demise in a vision, Shota vanished, abandoning her home in Agaden Reach.
As the years passed, they saw no signs of Shota despite years of searching. They finally decided that she had given up and exiled herself from the Midlands. The world was now at peace, the D'Haran empire stronger than ever as Richard and Kahlan worked ceaselessy to to bring prosperity to the lands and cleanse a long standing stain of blood from the reputation D'Hara and the Rahl bloodline. And with the Help of Zed and Nathan, Richard was able to rediscover the magic for making Confessors, making a few new bloodlines of Confessors to help keep the nations at peace.
Edynol Rahl, the hier to D'hara, is now all grown up, and has taken his father's place in traveling the world, safeguarding the free lands from lingering threats. Wielding the Sword of Truth, after Richard advocated his role as Seeker to give his full attention to Kahlan and D'Hara and Zed choosing him, Edynol now travels the lands of both the New and Old Worlds. But little does he know that Shota, still determined to see him dead for what he is and driven mad from her own visions of her demise and misguided notions she was saving the world from terror, still lingers in the shadows, waiting for her opportunity to strike.
Please post here with your character or PM me if you're interested in joining.
This is my character.
Name: Edynol Rahl
Occupation: Seeker/Wizard/Confessor/Heir to D'Hara(And a whole bunch of other stuff. lol.)
Hair: Dark Brown, falling about half way down his face.
Description: Almost a splitting image of his father, Richard Rahl, but slightly smaller in build and a slightly smaller nose. He has a pleasant personality and a sunny disposition, but is intolerant of fools and those who seek to harm people for no good reason. He enjoys being around people, but often seeks solitude when a problem arises he needs to figure out. He is quick to anger, but almost always keeps a clear head and doesn't act until he deems it neccessary. He prefers people to call him by his name, but has long since accepted the title of 'Prince Rahl', his title under his father's 'Lord Rahl'.
He often wears commoner clothes, but has threads he wears for formal events. He very rarely makes his identity known, keeping his sword sheathed and head down while in other cities or villages. He usually goes by different aliases, except for places where he his known, and despite a noble air, he doesn't look down on anyone and is willing to offer a hand if someone needs help, no matter what the task is.
From the few years he spent amongst the Mud People, and Richard's experience as a woods guide, Edynol is adept in living off the land and tracking. If he has a choice between sleeping in the woods or staying at an inn, he usually chooses the woods, if the weather allows it. He also very mild mannered, most of the time, and rarely orders anyone to do anything unless the situation demands it. He is very much like his father, if not a bit head strong at times, but knows his limits and that he still has alot to learn.
