Hey! So this is the OOC...
Basically, we've all been thrown in this portal-y thingy into another world where there are no humans. The only thing transported to the other world are ourselves--no technology, weapons, anything. Just flesh and bones. (And you know, blood.. and oxygen.. and yeah.) We're each dropped into a spot near a clearing. Next to you you'll find a tunic and brown pants as well as undergarments.
We all find our way to the clearing, where we all meet, and decide to band together to get back to our respective time periods and locations. Except there's a little twist...
The native species of the world, a monster-like being are trying to kill all of us. We don't know why.
This is a low-Casual RP. That means..
4. And just general English.
The posting length requirement is a good, solid paragraph.
What Time Period You're From:
-No godmodding/powerplaying/Mary-Sues. (Meaning: No controlling other people's characters, killing them off without permission, being invincible, or being absolutely perfect.)
-I am the GM. My word is law.
-Please word out your character's appearance.
-I don't care how many characters you make, as long as you keep track of them.
-Your character is not supposed to be from a fantasy time period or imaginary location; they're actually supposed to be from a real time and location in that we know of.
(Will be added onto as necessary.)
I reserve the right to kick anyone out for any reason I deem reasonable.
Name: Laurel Cate
What Time Period You're From: Medieval-y
Appearance: Laurel has long dark amber hair that is slightly wavy and super silky. Her eyes are dark green with gold flecks, framed by long lashes. She has slightly tanned skin and is average height. Also, you can't tell, but she actually is pretty strong from years of shooting arrows.
Personality: She's sarcastic and witty, but she's also funny and quirky if you get to know her. She's brave and doesn't care what people think of her actions. If Laurel thinks something needs to be done, she'll do it.
History: Laurel grew up with parents who were woodworkers and blacksmiths. They taught her how to make bows, arrows, and swords, so if she has the proper materials or substitutes for them, she can make weapons. She also learned how to shoot and fence to help her parents test the weapons. Laurel had two siblings, an older brother and sister, who when her father the blacksmith died, took over the business.
Strengths: Laurel is an expert at crafting swords and archery equipment because of her parents. She's also strong from blacksmithing and years of shooting arrows. Her aim in archery is also quite amazing, as is her skill with blades.
Weaknesses: She's sometimes too impulsive and doesn't think things through. She can also be unwilling to listen to others, and that often gets her in trouble.
