Not all of the Olympians or Sarians have been spoken for. Feel free to apply.  :-)

Changed the title.


Setting: 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.

Approved, Elf!  :D I don't have a character or OOC thread up yet because I'm still evaluating interest.

I thought I might try my hand at making a character. Hope everyhitng seems alright with him.  ;D

Basic Attributes

Gerik was born on a ship. He grew up on the sea for many years, learning the ways of a sailor and a fighter and learning to worship Poseidon. After a hard fought battle with pirates the ship he had grown up on was sunk, and his family killed with it. Gerik, a mere fourteen years old, had managed to escape death and swam away from his sinking home. Weary and near-death Gerik was found hours later by another ship and was taken aboard. He was dropped off at the first port the ship came accross. There Gerik remained for six years, working as a guard and searching for what to do with himself. In those six years he learned the arts of horsemanship, and how to wield the spear. Gerik spent nearly all of his savings for a custom made weapon, a beautifully crafted trident-spear that Gerik wished to use in honor of the God he worshiped. It wasnt long after that when a man came into town, seeking to hire a crew for a newly built ship. He found out that Gerik not only had past experience, but that Gerik also worshiped Poseidon. Gerik was convinced to joining the crew, and was once more sailing the world. He has spent three years on the Sea's Wrath, sailing all accross the known world, all the while paying tribute to Poseidon.

Looks nice  ;D

Thanks, Hun! Took about 24 hours of mah life but I'm satisfied for the moment.


No problem  ;)
Searching for so many pictures that fit just right, or at least enough, can be a pain, so I bet this was kinda rough, or at least time consuming. :o

I am confused about races, what about something Anthro? (not furry. there is a difference)

Interest is noted and Pan is reserved, Kaii.


P.S. For anyone that might be interested, we still need 1 or 2 people to play a disciple of the Sarian Gods as well...

I'd like to get at least 3 or 4 more players before begining the OOC, Character, and IC threads.


I edited but idk if you saw it. Are Anthro characters allowed?

Sure are as long as they aren't related specifically to the God/desses. Meaning you can't be Aphrodite's dove or Artemis's deer, ect...


(Nope, not planning that, I'm going to Edit this with the character)

- Hair Color/Style: Covered in thick golden fur with black spots and white highlights
- Eye Color: Hazel
- Makeup: ---
- Clothing: Wears (if anything) strips of cloth belted around her waist to cover her backside and groin. Generally does not cover her chest but will do so around outsiders, usually just a strip of brown or black cloth wrapped around her chest. Does not wear anything when hunting. The cloth she does use can sometimes have golden patterns if she decides to interact with the world outside her forest.
- Jewelry: Has a quartz crystal that is wrapped on one end with leather to hang from. She wears it on her neck at all times, and stores/draws energy from it. She has considered piercing an ear but must carve the perfect earring for it first.

* Race: Feline Anthro (Iberian Lynx)

* Race Description: Stands digigrade (legs like a feline) with pads/ retractable claws on hands and feet. Covered in fur with a short tail. Her face if that of the felines', complete with muzzle and cheek fluff.

* Physical Abilities/Limitations: She is strong and agile, well versed in hand to hand combat, and a good hunter. She is not fast compared to many and not as strong as many, and her short size can be a hindrance. She get tired easily as well. Tracking and music are great pastimes for her, as well as crafting instruments to barter with should she need. Animals tend to like her, even some prey animals if she works to appear nonthreatening. If she can get the idea across they might help her if they choose.


Aleka was born with two other siblings. Her mother and father were both Lynxes as were all three of the triplets. They lived in a loose co-operation with other inhabitants of the wood but generally the family lived on their own. Her mother was a great musician and her father a grand hunter. Together they taught their children everything they knew. Aleka was the best at tracking and hunting although she could hold her own in musical skill as well. Never would she be as good a musician as either of her siblings though, who went on to become famous in their own right. On the night of becoming an Adult Aleka was given her second name and sent off into the world to make her own way and form her own family although she visits with parents and siblings from time to time.

Not long after she was on her own she decided to dedicate her life to the worship of Pan. When she did she discovered the quartz crystal, and swore to treasure it always.
