๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) I'm interested in knowing what you think, what you would be interested in seeing story/plot wise as well as any other questions you might have!

message 2: by Woolfie (new)

Woolfie Silvanus (nightlightknight) Hmm, I'd like to know if this rp is based on anything? And also the role played by the dragons :)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) It isn't based on anything other than the physical descriptions and personality types of the races that I have borrowed loosely from D&D. The dragons will be playing a godlike role on the world but the way they are and how they behave will be common knowledge for anyone with an education in the world.

Lizzie [may soda be eternal] (kisaragiidolmomo) Race idea!

A creature that has given up its heart to escape death, often accompanied by another creature that keeps and protects the others heart. I call it a Shade in another group where I made basically that, but that's mostly because it was 1 in the morning.

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) Ah 1am ideas.... Always very sound if you ask me. :P I have quite a number of races in mind--already too many I think--but I will keep that in mind if I need more. :)

message 6: by Woolfie (new)

Woolfie Silvanus (nightlightknight) I was going to say each person suggest one unique race, but we can always go with the staple ones but change the, a little , like a blend of a kender and a hobbit called a kelling, or a world wtpithout humans!

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) You guys don't want humans? I kind of want humans....

message 8: by Woolfie (new)

Woolfie Silvanus (nightlightknight) Not don't want, I just thought that might be interesting in a human free world but having humans in is always good too.

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) Okay, I'm putting them in then. :D

ѕтαяк (cometocloseanduwillloseafinger) | 14 comments Hai!
I was wondering if we could have a face claim thread? I just have a lot of faces I don't want stolen :)

message 11: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) Sure thing. :)

Luna ❤Thing 5❤ (moonflower3) You know I just had a curious idea... I dunno if it would work though. I was thinking that a lot of Rps start off strong and then start diminishing so I was thinking that maybe you could um - not sure how to explain it- but either a mod or anyone can but in and suddenly turn the story in a different direction so E.g;

1st Person

2nd Person

3rd Person (exterior view)
(( Now Person 1 gets shot by an arrow and Person 2 gets grabbed from behind. They are being ambushed by... blah blah ))

It can work for any group like this but I just thought I'd put it out there. It could make Rping more interesting :)

Lizzie [may soda be eternal] (kisaragiidolmomo) I like it!

message 14: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) You mean like a person controlling the overall story? I like that too.

Luna ❤Thing 5❤ (moonflower3) I suppose. I mean you can decide if you want it to be just the mod that decides to shift people's stories or if anyone can, I just thought that seeing as there would be a lot of stories that a mod or mods might get a little overwhelmed. But then if no body else besides a mod is reading the stories then it might become redundant so yeah it's up to you :D

OH! And I just thought of another suggestion. Maybe have a court. So that a head person or representative of each species can participate. But then you'd have a place for rogues, for people that aren't accepted, like halflings etc. And maybe have the place separated into sectors for certain species?

message 16: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) Caitlin, you're overwhelming me! Jk, jk. :P

Yep, I'm gonna have ALL of that. And I like the idea of rotating the person too except if there's a person who isn't able to move the story forward, the other players might become upset about waiting around.... Which is why I thought of designating it to the mod. I guess we shall see. :)

Luna ❤Thing 5❤ (moonflower3) lol cool, but I wouldn't recommend the exterior party start Rping with the people they are changing their stories with, cause then it can get annoying and confusing...

message 18: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) Let me put up the storyline/background of the game first and maybe I can have a poll of what type of game players want this to be.

message 19: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) Caitlin, I just reread your comment and I'm wondering: why wouldn't Halflings be accepted?!? Do you have something against short people? :P

message 20: by Woolfie (new)

Woolfie Silvanus (nightlightknight) Actually funnily enough I had the notion the other day of having each society have their own similar sort of weapons and their distinctive ones as well, such as how elven seapons and armout would have an organic look to them, meaning they'd use katana and scimitar-like blades, dwarves would be inclined to hammers and axes (the first axe was created when a butterfly flew into an underground smithy) Men would be a hodge podge of styles, like the cruxord or cross-sword symbolising their faith in Elcarist, their God. I especially lied how the halflings could have adapted the use of bucklers from their oversized belt buckled which they wear to distinguish family :p Oh, and how about elves wearing tartan kilts, using longbows, as opposed to dwarves heavy fabrics and preference for crossbows.

lol no I just meant halflings in general, might add some drama I thought. Like there being the whole pure beings being the best or something like that, plus I thought of their being a hunters type thing but then I realised that might be stupid considering most know of the supernatural so why bother hunting... so yeah.

message 22: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (last edited Sep 03, 2013 06:02PM) (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) Woolife, the races do have weapon preference--I'll be putting it up.

Caitlin, yes, there is race prejudice but it's not that severe--at least not until open war breaks out....

message 23: by Woolfie (new)

Woolfie Silvanus (nightlightknight) Go Sarah, oh yeah :p

message 24: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) I'll get to it all! :D

Lizzie [may soda be eternal] (kisaragiidolmomo) While I'm here,
Don't forget Sorcerers!

message 26: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) That's a class. I'm doing those now.

message 28: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) What other information do you guys need to make characters? I'm working on the world....

message 29: by Woolfie (new)

Woolfie Silvanus (nightlightknight) I think the map might provide some key grounding for the characters such as where they live, their world around them and so forth, as well as perhaps something of a background, but that'll come later.

message 30: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) I put a background story but a very brief one. I'm working on the world as I said.

message 31: by Woolfie (new)

Woolfie Silvanus (nightlightknight) No I meant as in later once we've finalised locations and geographical features and such we could look to giving a little background info, if you see what I mean. But as I said that'll be later.

message 32: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) Yeah that will be way later because it'll need to be developed as the RP progresses.

Luna ❤Thing 5❤ (moonflower3) Are pixies no longer in the playable races?

message 34: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) No, they're not. Sorry.

Luna ❤Thing 5❤ (moonflower3) Okie dokie

message 36: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) I'm moving them to the non-playable races. So they can be NPCs but not PCs.

Luna ❤Thing 5❤ (moonflower3) Um I think I have two questions.

1. Depending on the species of your charrie are we allowed to have a personality that differs from the norm?

2. Keeping in with the playable races listed are we allowed to mix the races? Like half of one thing and half of another?

message 38: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) 1. Yes, personalities can differ but if it is extremely different, then it would have to be explained in the backstory (I will be semi-harsh about backstories and will make you question why if it doesn't make sense to me).

2. For now, no, please do not mix races. If the game has exhausted all avenues of characters, it might be interesting to throw in mixes but for now there are only 2 mixed races.

Luna ❤Thing 5❤ (moonflower3) OKie dokie

message 40: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) Do you guys what a name idea thread?

Luna ❤Thing 5❤ (moonflower3) Can you choose more than one class cause the class I want is a mix between Rogue and a Wizard...?

message 42: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) Only one class, Sweetie.... :(

message 43: by Woolfie (new)

Woolfie Silvanus (nightlightknight) A name idea thread? As in for place names r characters?

message 44: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (last edited Sep 04, 2013 06:02PM) (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) Character names but I'm thinking now it's irrelevant and I can simply help players individually.

message 45: by Woolfie (new)

Woolfie Silvanus (nightlightknight) Was just looking at character classes.
Halflings could make good bards wouldn't you say?
I would also suggest that some of those classes could be used as an elite or a level up, for example a Barbarian could become an ardent which sounds like a combination of a berserker and a champion, and something of a natural leader or loose cannon in battle.
Gnomes with their analytical abilities might make good artificers.
The Avenger class seems like an elite warrior or fighter class, something of a level up from the ordinary rough and tumble blade wielder.
Seekers could be elite rangers possibly? Think we could consider which are the basic or core classes, and which are the specialisations that distinguish them, if that's the way you want to play it.

message 46: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) I'm happy with the way it is.

message 47: by Woolfie (new)

Woolfie Silvanus (nightlightknight) Fair enough.

ѕтαяк (cometocloseanduwillloseafinger) | 14 comments Question:
Is it possible that one followed no deity? Believes in no gods, that kind of thing?

message 49: by ๖ۣۜSαᴙαh (new)

๖ۣۜSαᴙαh ๖ۣۜMᴄĄłłiƨʈeʀ (inked_chinadoll) In this world, there is no "belief" or "no belief" because gods do exist. They are as real as the air that people breathe, the water that they drink and the food that they eat.

message 50: by ѕтαяк (new)

ѕтαяк (cometocloseanduwillloseafinger) | 14 comments Okay, thank you, I'll make sure to add a deity to Arctic now. And by the way, even though she isn't quite finished yet, I'm open to any grammatical problems it has (And I bet it has a lot...)
