Changed the title.OOCCharactersICSetting
: Fantasy realm (think D&Dish). A world called Earth. It’s currently experiencing a “Golden Age.” A time of peace, harmony, stability, and prosperity. All across the land co-exist races of many kinds. Minor battles ensue amongst rivals but nothing akin to war. It is Spring time. -- It's been brought to my attention that this needs more explanation. In terms of transportation: horses, carriages, big fucking tamed hawk companion, ect. It's really up to you, sans technology. And in terms of cities, they are all still there as in normal Earth, however just translated to Fantasy realm. Instead of a skyscraper, a dryad village may have an incredibly tall tree like in Ferngully. Or a castle instead of the White House, ect. Actual people are not the same, though. Barack Obama doesn't exist, ect. If you have any questions or confusions, please feel free to message me. I have an open door policy concerning discussions on the RP or your characters.Plot/Objectives
: When the Universe was created, there existed the Primordial Deities. From the Primordial Deities came the Titans, and from the Titans came the Olympians and the Sarians. After many years the Primoridal Deities fell into a state of torpor and the Olympians defeated the Titans for ethereal control.
Prometheus had created mankind and for millions of years before the birth of current mortal kind, civilization on Earth existed solely on the continent of Atlantis. Atlantis was a utopia and the Atlanteans were a very advanced group of mortals. However, during this time the Olympians and Sarians warred amongst each other, their middle ground being Earth. From the loins of their great hatred sprung forth a great evil force so powerful it could destroy the world. He came to be known as Angnhil. The Olympians were unable to find a way to destroy Angnhil but didn’t want the Sarians getting a hold of it so they locked it in a prison far below Earth level. But as the price paid for locking Angnhil away, Atlantis was carried along with it.
Well many millennia later, the Fates were doing their daily duty of professing people’s lives when they got that fairly common chill of foreboding. However, this day the chill was much more severe than normal. They went quickly to their Well of Divination and suddenly saw the error of the Olympians.
The Fates went immediately to Zeus to explain what they’d seen. They told him that the caged evil was beginning to awaken. They told him of the different outcomes from the Well. If the Olympians interfered, they’d be able to defeat the evil force but the clash of such extreme powers would destroy the world. Zeus thought long and hard about the Fates’ proclamation.
Zeus assembled all the Olympians in his palace on Mt. Olympus. He told all the Olympians to pick their favored followers and report back to him. Once they had reported back, Zeus decided upon the mortals he felt were best suited for this challenge according to what the Fates had decreed. That’s when the dreams began…Rules
: All the normal RPing rules apply. Please check grammar and spelling and read over your posts thoroughly before posting. No God modding. Any rules you are unclear of, please feel free to ask. I ask for intermediate to advanced RPers/writers for this RP. If you turn out to be bad at RPing or you can’t follow the rules, I reserve the right to terminate your character. You will be warned repeatedly before such actions are taken. All characters will be reviewed and accepted by me. Instead of denying a character, I’ll work with you on things I’m not satisfied with.IMPORTANT:
All characters need to decide upon a particular God or Goddess that they favor and worship above all others. You may not pick one of the Primordial Deities, Titans, Lesser Titans, Zeus, Lesser Olympians, Fates, or Vakortur as your favored God. ONLY ONE GOD/DESS PER CHARACTER. NO GOD/DESS MAY BE USED MORE THAN ONCE.
Post early to get your favorite. Once your character has been approved, you can post it in the character thread and begin posting in the OOC thread. Before posting in the IC thread, please wait for me to write up a recurring dream your character keeps having unless I've personally told you that you can post without being visited in dream.
Any mortal race can be chosen. If you’re unsure whether your preferred race is acceptable, feel free to ask. You’re welcome to make up your own race. If you do so, please include a detailed description of that race. All Elven races are considered mortal.
You must be an Earth bound race. You can't be an alien from another planet.
You can not be a demi-god. I'm sorry. But you will be much more powerful than any normal being if it's any consolation.Ideas to help decide upon a race
In order to use magic, there must be an element from that spell's school of magic nearby. For instance, if you want to cast a fire spell, there must be some form of fire nearby. Same with water, shadows, earth, ect. The more of the element around, the greater the spell will be.
You can have more than 1 character if you're able to keep up with them.
No one line posts.
Do not post any OOC comments in the IC thread.
Depending upon the number of players, there will be 1 or more players able to have an evil God/dess as their favored God/dess. This will spice some things up.
I'm allowing everyone to have a bag of holding to start with.Please use the following for your character profile:
A picture is appreciated but not necessary if you have a detailed description of your character.
