I'm going to run an interactive story, i will be the only one telling the story but (with my guidance) you may make characters and make decisions.

As some of you know i am quite talented at writing and promise to deliver only the best.

i need at least 4 active members who can post at least 3 times a week (each)




Takers?

I haven't done this before so i'll wait until someone else has posted theirs. Could you give more backstory about the world? Is it like medieval England?

Yeah, I'm having trouble thinking of anything without any details about the world or the story or anything.

Thankyou Zorax!


okay, so this is a typical if not cliche styled fantasy. if you are unfamiliar with FANTASY RPGs, its like acting out lord of the rings only with rules set by the Controller.

as said the land is cliche. to the far west is ocean, it is said to be haunted and many a treasure hunter has lost their life their. next to that, on the coast, are port cities and fisher towns--much market travel come in through here, and the game will start in one said town.

travel east and you will find a more european setting; castles, cities, accademies, ect.
east of this the land becomes more ruggad, hills forests, less villages; and adventually cuts off entirely into forest.

everything east of here is un chartered and mysterious


to the north are mostly unexplored mountains
to the south is ocean with rumors of cursed islands



i dont care how you do it, but your storyline must land you in the fisher town of TOG at the start of the game.


Zorax, your gender might effect your negotiation abilities with certain NPCs, think about it.

Alright then, I'm attractive to people who find slender young men attractive. As to my own preferences, we'll just see if that comes up.

Okay, so I wind up in a small fishing village after hitchhiking around the west coast for a while. I was trying to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, maybe find some like-minded people living closer to nature. One village has slurred into the next, and now I'm penniless and lost. I need to find work, but nothing permanent and definitely nothing corporate or authoritarian. I also want to find some cool locals and other travelers to hang out with. Maybe I can crash at their places if a shared room at the Inn is too expensive.

Zorax did an excellent jobb, but id like the next two characters to have more "warrior/adventurer" qualities

EVERYONE

Well, I suppose if we're adhering to fantasy tropes, I could be a bard type. Tell you what: give me an acoustic guitar with a bunch of AK PRESS and hemp-leaf stickers on the case.

Mighty Biroth comes from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.
The hammer of the gods drove his ship to TOG. Biroth is filthy rich and after his ship filled with loot shipwrecked he buried a lot of treasures all around TOG in case he would ever be robbed. He has white hair and a thick white beard. Gritty and unclean. He likes cheese and women. Likes to be spanked by- and spank women.

positive: strength negative: dexterity

handle animals athletic and alertness.

Two handed hammers and axes
Heavy armor
Boomerangs
Whips

desired possession. a shit load of money to buy whatever I want. A pet owl and a pet poisonous snake*.( and a bag of pet mice to feed them with). And a pet mule to carry my stuff. And the best encyclopedia in the kingdom. And a chest with high quality porn.

weapons: a whip would be nice. A bullwhip with poisonous nails(poison from the snake)!

A awesome seal-fur-west. A pirate hat.

Zorax, that will be fine.


URIN
by land of ice and snow your only option is to have been to a frozen island in the west ocean. i'll give you EITHER an owl, or a small snake, or a mule, but not all three.

i'll give you money, but in the form of treasure, not coinage. you will have you sell the treasure to make money.

Zorax, do you have any questions before i start you? I know you play DD so you probably have a good idea how this works, but until the other players catch up i'll have to put you in a "Tutorial Mode" where their is no storyline

PLANET BUSTER

It is required that you read all posts (within reason) in case a reference is made to your character

URIN
be specific on your items, do you want an ax or a hammer, what kind of heavey armor do you want?


MONEY!

ten copper = one silver
ten silver = one gold

one silver = one dollar

George
Male
Slim
hight: 5'10''
age: 23

habits/mannerisms
LEWD.

basic description
Young unemployed guy


(Pick one positive, Pick one negative)
Dexterity pos, wisdom neg

(pick three)
deft hands (hand tricks, pick pocketing), athletics, ride.

Social Class. Middle class, unemployed, and frustrated with living at home. Would prefer killing dragons as long as it pays. Then again, janitorial work is fine too just as long as it pays. But the people appear to be content living in filth. Dragon slayer it is.

Since I'm basically just mirroring my own personality here, I would have written "Part time musician" but Zorax already snagged the bard class. So lets come up with some other young twenty-something activity.

UHH. I picked deft hands so.... Bad gambler. With deft hands I do card and knife tricks for laughs. I tried to transition into magic tricks, but the knives/magic approach always ended in dead rabbits. I just stick to cheating at poker for fast cash now.

George has a liver of steel. But he can use his power of HILARIOUS DISTRACTION with the drawback of losing all short term memory, sickness/weakness +24-36 hours, and embarrassment after saying some stuff he shouldn't have about ex-girlfriends.

George's dexterity and decent intelligence allow him to do some cool knife/bow tricks. Plus his parents paid for all those martial arts lessons as a kid and now he can kick ass with a staff (see Wikipedia article: STICK) THANKS MOM. But due to his wisdom defect he will starve in 72 hours without a character with the wisdom to conjure up a cooked steak.

(pick four)
Daggers
Bows
Staffs
Light armor
Possessions: Sweet leather jacket. Bigass sharp knife, little switchblade knife,
A rubber band, gum, paper clip, a pencil, and pocket lint. They may come in handy later.

Welcome Mac, that makes a possibility of 4 players.

MAC
your drinking ability would work best as a boost in strength with a minus in other Abilities. and you should consider a "drunken monk" or "drunk barbarian" type character. other then that, you seem close to readloy

any questions?
