I've been looking around at a few of these RPs and this one seems really promising. I especially like the sound of "The previous messenger's body was found... supposedly." which makes me think there'll be something more complex than just ordinary goblin raids.
For a Personal Interest would diplomacy be okay? I got the idea from the letter you wrote about the goblins choosing not to just ignore them. It made me think that perhaps when the information was revealed to the public someone who wasn't just another mercenary or adventurer might respond. Maybe some aspiring diplomat would try to actually find out why these creatures who were so ill-equipped for a war they had to steal weapons and armour from their opponents before they could fight them would choose to attack a target which was obviously part of a kingdom far more powerful than their own tribe/clan/village/other-small-group.
I've played RPGs before, but my characters have mostly been typical sword-swinging or spell-slinging do-gooders/sell-swords, so I'd like to try something a little different this time if I'm allowed to join.
That's the kind of thinking that I never get in a grand majority of my groups. I like the cut of your jib, Grandeur. But as far as most everyone else knows for sure, there's goblin raids going on and that's what needs to be solved... by whatever means the players come up with.

But you're right. There may be more to this than just goblins suddenly attacking.
Aahhhhh.... I've been looking for a game just like this for some time. I am very interested.
I am usually a bit of a backup player and also like getting connected to other characters to help draw them into the story, so my character might not be the first up unless I find something I am totally sold on.
(By the way, the line breaking is an issue in Internet Explorer. That was the last straw that sent me to use Chrome. If you absolutely cannot switch, you can plaster on a new font and some of those codes Internet Explorer isn't messed up on.)
This is what you meant aye? I'm interested and would join this, if you would have me. Not sure what type of character I'd go with , something different than the typical guard i'm used to.

Without pausing to appreciate the irony of his statement Magnus flew back down the street after the rampaging dinosaur.

At no point did it occur to Johnny that, as a Pterodactyl, his words were coming out as more of a screeching roar that speech.

It has a tail as long as its body but can wrap up on someone like a snake.... It is the perfect hunter, it can fly, crawl and swim... Its skin is an armor of layered scales but a stab going from back to front might get under the scales to land a bleeding...

Is this RP still open to new characters? I can have one up in a few minutes if it is. I'm thinking something along the lines of a kid trying to strike out on his own and prove he's a "big shot", but gets in over his head.
