So basically this roleplay is about some Dogs of War, some mercenaries who have been requited for a task. This task usually involves killing.

Types of Chars

Humans- Normal humans. Can use any weapons or armour that you can think of, Shields, axes, clubs, swords, muskets, pistols, maces ect.

Ogres- Massive 10 foot tall grey skinned monsters. Will do anything for money. They loooooove to eat! Use weapons like clubs and maces.Sometimes big swords.Rarely will ride Rhinoxs, like a giant hair rhino

Dwarfs- Stubborn and feierce fighters and have a fondness for gold. Use weapons like axes, pistols, hammers, muskets, crossbows. doesnt use mounts.

Wood Elves- Hit and run type attacks. bows and spears, no armour. ride horses

Dark Elves- Evil and malicious. Uses creul spears, knives and swords and repeater crossbows. Rides black horses or giant lizards called cold ones.

Hight Elves- Noble and arrogant. Spears and bows. Ride Horses

Halflings- small and hobit like. Love to eat. Spears and bows mainly.

So I'd like mostly humans with a smattering of elves,ogres and dwarfs.

Two of you can be wizards. First come first served. Halflings cant be wizards. Wizards must pick on eof the folowing lores

Lore of fire- direct Damage Magic- Fireballs, flaming weapons ect.
Lore of Beasts- Summoming and shapeshifting magic
Lore of Metal- alchemy, transmutations
Lore of Light- Buff magic, makes troop fasters, shooting light beams and stuff, effective vs undead and daemons
Lore of Life- buff magic, makes troops tougher, heals, can control woods
Lore of Shadow- Tricky magic, curse magic summonons black steeds and pits of doooom!!!
Lore of Heavens- astromancy- curse magic and summons lightning bolts and comets
Lore of death- Direct damage- bolts of death
Gut Magic- Ogres only, buff magic- makes tougher and heals wounds. damaging to the caster usually.

Magic Items- You can each have one magical item that has an effect thats not too ridiculous and over the top.

Example- Bobby the Ogre has a Sheild that absorbs magic attacks.

Maggie (maggie-swift) Name: Ailurus

Age: 189 (longer lifespans, right?)

Race: High Elf

Weapons and gear- Ailurus owns a small, but effective, hunting bow, along with a poisoned dart collection she got off a trader at a very steep price. While they aren't ranged, she can use them in close combat. She also carries a spear carved with runes
Crafted by her father, the inscribed runes help her locate the spear if it is lost or stolen, not matter the distance or time separating them. In times past, she has tricked enemies into nicking the spear so she could follow them at her leisure.

Description: Ailurus is tall, green-eyed, and blonde, favoring her mother's large, almond-shaped cat-like eyes and slim figure. She usually wears long, elegant cloak-gowns, or soft, supple riding breeches, with her hair in elaborate, but practical, braids and twists.

Personality: She is fair towards humans, but has a short fuse of temper, and doesn't like what she doesn't understand. She likes being alone, and simply can't stand ignorance. It's like a slap in the face.

History of why they became a mercenary in the Crimson Company: Ailurus's father and mother were mercenaries. Although she may put on a face about it, she really does enjoy her work, and hoped to make a fair title for herself on this journey. She owns an Apaloosa, Palouse. She takes the mare on all of her mercenary works and treasures her like a daughter.

Sweet a fellow gamer! Have you read the Mallus Darkblade Books because he is a Delf and his Cold One is Spite as well.


Angus (Ozzy Zig needs a gig) Richardson (tap3w3rm) | 68 comments Mod
And elves live a long time! Young for an elf would be about 50 or so.


Angus (Ozzy Zig needs a gig) Richardson (tap3w3rm) | 68 comments Mod
Everyone is free to start posting BTW.


message 20: by The Phantom (new)

The Phantom (zerosummations) | 96 comments thanks, in fact i drew inspiration for Valcorath from a mixture of thorin oakenshield (the hobbit) and a member of the astarii (or something) from 'Reaper of Souls'. I am addicted to warhammer, 40k and Fantasy, but am new to roleplaying.

P.S. What kind of time, (grenich mean time) are the most people on goodreads for this rp?


message 21: by The Phantom (new)

The Phantom (zerosummations) | 96 comments cool


message 22: by The Phantom (new)

The Phantom (zerosummations) | 96 comments How could I be integrated into the storyline?
I've read most of it and can't think of a way that isn't too much like I'm intruding.


Angus (Ozzy Zig needs a gig) Richardson (tap3w3rm) | 68 comments Mod
Well we had another dark elf guy who led some shade type foot scouts, but he dropped out. You can lead those.

Also Cecelia you can have a horse and ride with maggies elves.


message 24: by The Phantom (new)

The Phantom (zerosummations) | 96 comments Are the shade scouts astarii per chance, and if not, could they be?


message 25: by The Phantom (new)

The Phantom (zerosummations) | 96 comments Shut up sis!

The Phantom (zerosummations) | 96 comments I know dat

message 28: by The Phantom (new)

The Phantom (zerosummations) | 96 comments Something like that, they are in the third book of the Malus Darkblade set: Reaper of Souls.


message 29: by The Phantom (new)

The Phantom (zerosummations) | 96 comments thats nice


Angus (Ozzy Zig needs a gig) Richardson (tap3w3rm) | 68 comments Mod
Pfft warcraft is a knockoff of Warhammer!


message 31: by The Phantom (new)

The Phantom (zerosummations) | 96 comments Everyone knows, are you on the roleplay at the moment, or just this?


Angus (Ozzy Zig needs a gig) Richardson (tap3w3rm) | 68 comments Mod
I just posted on the rp. So what aremies do you play in warhammer?


message 33: by The Phantom (new)

The Phantom (zerosummations) | 96 comments Truthfully, I only collect 40k, but if I could afford it I would collect lizardmen and tomb kings.


Angus (Ozzy Zig needs a gig) Richardson (tap3w3rm) | 68 comments Mod
I play Daemons and Nilla Marines in 40k and Tomb Kings, Skaven, Daemons and Orcs and Goblins in fantasy.

You play at a games workshop?


message 35: by The Phantom (new)

The Phantom (zerosummations) | 96 comments ((gots to go))


message 36: by The Phantom (new)

The Phantom (zerosummations) | 96 comments My sister only likes what appeals to her artistic side, and when I play in GW, I am constantly amazed at how each race will defeat the strategy which slaughters its allies. Eldar only seem to work like that, unable to achive victory without exploiting the weaknesses of thier foes, most of which I don't know.

Angus (Ozzy Zig needs a gig) Richardson (tap3w3rm) | 68 comments Mod
If Rhiannon is looking to collect then why not pick a themed army with a lot of artistic appeal, I.E one that involves a lot of conversions or mixed units.

Personally I think the Dark Elves have the best way to do this with a Cult of Slaanesh Army!

You can use the Seekers as Dark Riders, Daemonettes as Witches, Keeper of Secrets as Hydras and Daemonettes with wings glued on them as harpies! Mix in some of the really sweet dark elf models, Knights, Corsairs and their heroes and you have an army with a lot of conversion possibilites! Corsairs and knights with crab arms, Knights riding on Steeds, Heroes riding on Feinds and ect.

And to keep up with her you can start lzzies at the same time! Make a small campaign that appeals to your tactical side and make a cool battlefield and put some backstory to your campaign. Make up Special rules for her conversions and stuff like that.

Maybe like

Master Drakir stood aside his foul Daemonic Mount. He could sense the power eminating from the Ruined lizardmen temple. It would only be a few moments before his army would land on the shores. But they were not unnaposed. His small scouting force would establish a beach head and a staging point for the incasion of Lustria!

Scenario- Beach Head
Armies- The Dark Elves may Select 500 Points worth of troops, no restrictions apply except that no hydras may be taken. The Dark Elves also have to take Master Drakir.

The Lizardmen may select up to 500 Points worth of troops. No restrictions apply save that no lords, rares or stegadons may be chose.

Scenario Rules- The Dark Elves are attempting to establish a stronghold so that the rest of the dark elves may follow. The lizardmen are attempting to stop them!

The Dark Elves get 1 Point for each Lizardmen Unit that is fleeing at the end of the game. They also get an additional point if they control any table queaters at the end of the game.

The Lizardmen get 1 point for each dark elf unit wiped out and 3 points for killing Drakir.

Drakir- He is a Dark Elf Master with a Lance, Sheild and a 5+ Ward Save. He rides a Feind of Slaanesh-
m-10 ws-4 str-4 w-3 a-4 i-6 ld-8, Always strikes First and Posined attacks.


message 38: by The Phantom (new)

The Phantom (zerosummations) | 96 comments That sounds really cool, and as soon as I'm done with eldar im moving to lizardmen, looking at your scenario I'd say delves have the advantage... so lizards should get the first turn.


Angus (Ozzy Zig needs a gig) Richardson (tap3w3rm) | 68 comments Mod
Well the whole thing was supposed to couple with Rhiannons love of painting with your tactical stuff.

Rhiannon just read this part: If Rhiannon is looking to collect then why not pick a themed army with a lot of artistic appeal, I.E one that involves a lot of conversions or mixed units.

Corsairs and knights with crab arms, Knights riding on Steeds, Heroes riding on Feinds and ect.

The Phantom (zerosummations) | 96 comments After lizmen (short for lizardmen) we should get delves cult of slanesh ie daemons and elves!!
