Plot/Summary: This medieval fantasy role play will take place in the world of Karn. This world is home to five countries and has two land masses. Each country is the home to one kingdom which is ruled by lords and a king. The countries are of such:
These countries will have many cultures like those of our history. Asian, Europian, Norse, Egyptian styles for example.
Kurn, a world devided by five countries. Some are allies with one another while others are bitter enemies. These five countries are Krystallem. The country as the theme of the dark ages with castles built of rock and stone. Annuil, the main home of the elves is a country where the cities are built into the nature around it. From large trees hollowed out to build homes. The elves have created a pact with a race that lives amongst them called Ents that helped design the homes of the elves and even take care of their vast gardens. Aldulin, This is a small country belonging to a race of humans with norse like beliefs. So busy fighting against themselves that the rest of the world paid them no heed. Dalkia, another country built on humans but with people who did not fear dragons but instead worshiped them.
Zytherum is a land of desert landscapes built by tribes forming great cities of clay.
Darkmoor, A sorceror well acclaimed around the world as a hunter for knowledge. When anyone asked him why he searched for such things in ancient ruigns and he simply said "Knowledge is Power". However this hunt for knowledge would be the birth of a dark sorceror. Darkmoor has traveled to every country entered ancient catacombs to abandoned ruigns looking at tapestries, books, Tombs, and scrolls. Anything that improved his knowing of the world and of course magic. His last country to hit was Zytherum. While he was there he gained much respect amongst the locals and after visiting libraries and hearing rumors he heard of a ancient city below the sands of a island off the coast. He hired a crew to take him across and even paid those same crew members to escourt him and go within knowing that sometimes abandoned places are not always so abandoned. He couldnt be any more right about the place but the men he hired would not be ready for it. With host of magical spells he unlocked the doors to the city he went down below through the halls and then into the deep underground city said to belong to the dark elves at one point. However the texts did not say how it became abandoned. Then he got his answer as one of the crew members suddenly began to act strange. The man became pocessed by a ancient evil long preserved in the city waiting for a host and found one he had. The evil used the hosts sword to cut down two of his best friends and then the fights broke out amongst each other. Eventually his host was slain and he had to leave its body. When the chaos broke out Darkmoor ran to hide from it all. Combat was not quite his speciallty. Well not close combat. He was followed however by the dark spirit and when he least expected it the evil took him transforming him into a great evil. This evil then killed the rest of the men at the ancient city and departed from the ruigns. Before it left entirely he destroyed the entrence to the tomb so that no one could find a weakness to him or a way to conceal him again. The evil was named Erebus and it took hold of that name once more. When it reached civilization Erebus found how much this Darkmoor was loved and he used that to his advantage using its own dark powers to poison the minds of the people moving them to his will and forming armies and his conquest of the sands began. The tribes either joined him or their blood stained the sands. Soon he gained the allegance of dark elves, norsemen from the neighboring country, desert lizardfolk, orcs, goblinkin and ilithids alike. However it did not stop there as more races flocked to his will becoming a part of his army with the hopes of being shared that power he pocessed. Then the capital of Zytherum went under reconstruction as a massive tower was built with magical properties which doubled Erebus's powers and made his hands stretch wide entering the minds of more subjects bringing to him necromancers, warlocks, and even some evils better left alone.
For three years he prepared his forces causing the desert oasis to go silent from the world. Finally it was finished and he had his armies constructed and molded. He appointed generals who proved to be stronger then the rest of their races and set them forth. First step of his plan was to spread fear amongst the other countries and he did that well as his forces nested into several locations in the other countries conducting raids and attacks. These attackes were brought upon trade caravans, farmsteads, villages big or small and every so often skirmishing amongst the cities testing out defenses. Their where five armies each nested in a country. Zytherum had Raxxor in charge of its borders and newly formed cities of mixed races. Raxxor was a pitch black lizardfolk with massive horns upon his head as well as a hard flat disk forming at the back of his skull. His armor red trimmed with thick steel spiked at the shoulders, knees, and elbows. His weapon of choice was a war ax that was partnered with a shield that was spiked as well. Danaka was encharge of the army sent to the elven country of Annuil. She was a dark elf and had a long hatred for the elves and quite enjoyed the idea of being the source of their torment but she knew the elves would be a tough audience to satisfy. Gothmaug, a massive orc, was sent to Krystallem. Here he smashed heads with the pink skinned humans he hated so much. The humans thought they were so great and mighty in their cities of stone and their weapons of steel and iron. He made it a personal goal to destroy their spirits and eventually crush them.
Daedrick the ilithid was sent to Dalkia to settle things their with the people of that country and things were a bit colorful. It was not as easy as he thought but with determination and relentless attacks he would weaken the people there. Danith the last general was chosen for Aldulin the country of the nomadic norseman to contain their foot hold in the country. Mostly to keep the people in check with public executions to lower moral. Everything was going according to the dark ones plans whose identity was still uknown to the other countries. They had no idea the evil was Darkmoor pocessed by Erebus.
This adventure begins in Krystallem as King Davian Thule sent out messengers all over the place spreading the word that the raids and attacks had to stop. A special team would be formed to fight the evil and investigate where its source was located. If anything the evil must be stopped so visits to local villiages and farmers would be reguired to bring survivors to the cities where the people would be safe for the time being. Hopefully answers would come and one such answer did come from Daniel Grimm a lord of one of the many lands of Krystallem that the King ruled over. Daniel was coming to the capital with his two sons and a five of his best men to answer the kings call. His sons Hienrich and Thomas along with five men. Tanis, Alexander, Drakmen, David, and Joseph. They all mastered certain arts of combat that made them very valuable to the king.
The plot is the role players will have their characters join in the cause creating a small army in which they take on ordeals such as helping and defending villiages within the kingdoms. Each scenario will be different with different enemies and bosses along the line.
Character Creation Information:
Weapons and Armor: All weapons and Armor are available but be realistic. Carry only the amount your character can hold. Do not make your character too uber.
Notes: There is not character limit for each rper. Create as many as you want just as a warning though you must be able to act in character for each of them and maintain all of them. Meaning actions for each of them as well as words. Also dont have your characters only interact with your own but with others as well. I will take the role as the DM as well as the GM. Meaning I and only I will control the npcs unless permision granted.
I will not have a auto hitting rule. You can hit or not that is your decision but when fighting makie it interesting and not boring. Dont be afraid to let your character get hurt even if the hurt part is just a scratch.
I will be posting once a week or after everyone has posted. Basicly a week from the IC creation I will post if say only 5 out of 10 rpers post. However if all ten of those rpers post then I will post right away. If three weeks pass and a certain rper hasnt posted during that time they will be booted and their character autokilled which may trigger a early scenario for the others.
