Modern town dropped into fantasy world, needs new blood.
« on: March 03, 2011, 03:11:24 PM »
Culture Shock Is a story already in progress about a small US town transported into the Forgotten Realms fantasy world.

We just reached the evening of the first day and there is still plenty of opportunity for new characters from either the modern or fantasy world. If interested please respond here or in the established OOC. You may also want to checkout the Characters already created. Some of which you may meet, others have dropped out for various reason of their creator's.

Ah, so this was where you were hiding the new interest thread eh?  Lol, well hope we get a few more people this way then as well my friend.

This is your favorite every day E RPer and I approve this interest thread.  Lol, joking aside, I do hope we get you Elliquians over here since this RP is probably one of the best you'll ever get into.

NP Ironwolf, you could simply rejoin and catch up with everybody at the town meeting which just about to start.

Playfull, if you would like to show me a character you could start at the town meeting as well.

Thanks, Vergil.

Hey, no problem my friend.  Anything to help this thing get back on its feet.  Besides, you'd have done the same for me I'm sure.

Thanks buddy, but unfortunately I think most of my own RPs are done for good at this point.  Oh well, just frees me up to make new ones if that's the case lol.

I'm truly sorry to read that. If there is anything I can to help revive any of them just let me know and I will do whatever I can. I was really enjoying your LoZ one, even though I have never played any of the games.

Thanks man and I too was enjoying LoZ but with the disappearance of both Leostar and Mhina I don't think we can move on without it being awkward if nothing else.  I might have a new idea in the works though but I need time to hammer out the details yet.  I might run it by you, see what you think later but for now I've pretty much given up on my LoZ, which actually hurts more than I'd like to admit.  Anyway, I fully edited my post and it should be good now, had to leave in the middle of it which didn't sit well with me lol.

It seems I will most likely join with a normal since they seem underrepresented.

It's good to have you aboard Swordsman.  The best place to start out when you get a character up is the town meeting, where everyone else that's currently in this game is at right now save for Seth, one of mine since he's out for the count due to teleporting half the crew of the Sea Sprite and himself and David to safety.  Otherwise though the gang's all there.  I wish you luck and I as well as Elf I'm sure will be eager to have you with us.

Definitely will be glad to have you aboard Swordsman. I agree the meeting would be a great place to start.

Ah, I did not realize that Mhina had dropped out, I'm sorry. You're right it would have been awkward without her. Definitely let me know when you have something new ready.

How does the story go? What's happened so far? I may have an idea for a character, but I don't know whether it'll work.

Basically the story is about the individuals from either the town or the fantasy world and how they interact with each other.

So far, some from both worlds have gotten together with varied interactions. There is currently a town meeting going on as the town's people try to come to terms with what has happened.

Run your idea by me and we can see it if will work how we can make it work.

Well, if my town were dropped into a fantasy world, I would exploit it for all it's worth.

I'm wondering if I could play a rockstar whose band was going to play a gig in town that very day. A lot of their music is about dragons and epic fantasy battles and such, so this strange occurrence is a dream come true for them. Their music even gives them magical powers enabling them to do wondrous things, like the bards of D&D. Even more mindblowing would be the fact that the band was producing a concept album about a fantasy world identical to the one they are in, with very similar events being described in the lyrics. The story the album tells ends with an ancient demon being summoned and destroying the world...

Rolland, I love the idea. You do realize that playing in a town of only 6000 people though, they would probably just be an up and coming band just really getting started. Of course you could have chosen the smaller venue for whatever reason. It's up to you.

Sounds a little like Brutal Legend to me lol.  Still, love the idea as well and I'm with Elf on this one 100 percent.  Get a character going with your idea in mind bud and we'll be happy to have ya.

Well, the band in question has been around since the late 1970s, but the lineup has changed quite a bit since then, and the band has recently fallen out of favor since most of their aging original members have been replaced with young new ones, so these days they only play at small venues, their old fans having all but abandoned them.

Here are the lyrics for one of their songs as a sample:

Fate drew us together one ominous day
For we were the best of the best
We have embarked on a treacherous quest
We will strike down those in our way

Warrior and warlock, assassin and knight
Together we are without peer
The four of us know we have nothing to fear
Our influence grows with each fight

Onward we march seeking fortune and fame
Spilling our enemies' blood for our gain
Our will burns bright as an eternal flame
One day the world will know well our name

Victory brings us the spoils of war
Mountains of treasure fit for kings
Diamonds and gold are the most precious things
To those who seek out what's in store

Each victory is hard fought and hard earned
The beasts are relentless and fierce
But even their tough hides we know how to pierce
From battles there's much we have learned

Onward we march seeking fortune and fame
Spilling our enemies' blood for our gain
Our will burns bright as an eternal flame
One day the world will know well our name

The minstrels will sing of our deeds and our might
Remember us as brave heroes
We conquer all dangers and smite all our foes
On glorious wings we take flight

Kingdoms are conquered and empires fall
But we remain steadfast and true
No matter what threatens us we will pull through
United we overcome all

Onward we march seeking fortune and fame
Spilling our enemies' blood for our gain
Our will burns bright as an eternal flame
One day the world will know well our name
[Repeat]

You haven't heard of them because they're only a real band in the context of this story. I wrote those lyrics myself.

Now, how do I fill out a character sheet, and where?

Now I feel like an ass lol.  You did an excellent job my friend in writing those lyrics.  As for a character sheet, check the first page and there should be a link to the thread necessary to find the CS Sheet you seek my friend.
