Dndd - Shara is the capital of the nation of Belindor. And when the RP begins in IC, all the main characters will have already reached the Grey Company, currently camped in the Fields of Mennor, several leagues north of Shara (the northern edge of Belindor, actually).
happyhobo2000 - Now I am really glad you brought religion into the mix. I have been meaning to get that aspect in this world and I am really happy that you brought it in. Firstly, I am going to accept your character but will let you and Kegger decide the dynamics between your character and the Ax Legion, seeing as how you are going to be a part of them. But before I accept your character, I want to see some changes to your post. Those changes will mainly be about the church/priest/sermon/coffin references in your post. We will have a religion in this world, for sure, but it won't be christianity, of course. The terminology will be different, the places of worship may be called differently. The way a priest of this world lives will be different. I suggest you hang around till I nail those aspects, and then you can do an edit to your post. I believe I can give you a lot more to work with in a day.
Elrey - This 'party' is actually several thousand men strong, so no dearth of archers in the company, per se. And we have Aema, the General's daughter, who is a crack shot with a bow. I don't really have a distinct plan. I see how people come up with their characters, and I plan to weave the prophecy around them, and the story. None of the characters know anything about the prophecy, so they could refer to anyone. I am open to new characters but they have to be very good. And by good, I mean consistent with the world. Everyone is their own hero, so you can never be a glorified sidekick. But I do hate it when every other character wants to be a one-man fighting force. War is teamwork and battles are won by watching each others' backs. This is not a five-member adventure quest, you know. This is a full-scale war. Sure, there will be independent quests along the way: times when you won't have your entire regiment to protect you, but this is about leading your men to the Last Battle, or being one of the men who is led into the Last Battle. So, in short, you have a chance at being part of the RP at any time. As you can see, with every sample post, the world becomes more defined. So see if you can find a place for yourself. And don't go by whether we need an archer or a clubman or a mage. We need believable people. If they are all archers, well, they are all archers.
