Wow...It's been far too long since I've been here. Anyway, it's time to set up my new RP idea. If you like Fire Emblem, then you may enjoy this RP.
Welcome to the continent of Elfiné. You are a new recruit of the Edean Army. Edea has recently gone to war with Geraden, and you and your companions are being marched toward your first battle. Sweat covers your palms, and you can barely keep a hold on your weapon. Fear grips you as you realize that you may not be fit for a battlefield. “Company, HALT!” you hear the captain shout. You shift your weight nervously as you see the Geraden soldiers atop the next hill. The opposing force appears to have twice the number of soldiers as your group. You hear someone nearby mutter, “Father always said that it was skill, not numbers, that win a battle.” You can’t help but hope that his words are true, and hope that your comrades and yourself might have the skill to overcome these Geraden invaders.
You instantly take in your surroundings. To your right is a swampy lake, with a decent amount of brush surrounding it. To your left, much less vegetation is present, but you see the base of a hill that raises quicker than the one in front of you that in fact juts out above the Geraden soldiers. Then you spot a stone on the low cliff that, with the help of another, you could probably shove down on top of the soldiers. You realize that if you break to the right, you could use the brush for cover, or by breaking left, you can get the high ground and use the boulder, both of which are needed advantages.
This RP, inspired by the Fire Emblem game series, is a fantasy RP that utilizes unique characters, a completely original fictional continent, and rare weapons, such as the swords Darkblade and Brightsteel, both of which are daughter blades of the mighty weapon Excalibur, which was once wielded by a God who kept control over the lands.
This RP will utilize something similar to a class system. Base Units will have only a single weapon available to them. Promoted Units shall be given the choice of a new weapon, which may be foregone if desired. Mastery Units shall be allowed to wield up to three different types of weapons, or only one if desired. However, at no point shall one weapon type be ‘traded’ for another.
Types of weapons available include Swords, Spears/Lances, Axes, Bows, Knives, Light Magic, Wind Magic, Fire Magic, Thunder Magic, Dark Magic, and Healing Magic (or staves). Wind, Fire, and Thunder can all be grouped under one family called Natural (or for those more familiar with FE: Anima) Magic, so one will never wield only one of these three.
I won’t go into all the details now, since this is only an Int. Chk., but there are a fair number of technical aspects that go into making characters for this game. After that, the only technical piece that needs to be worried about is promotion, which occurs when a player obtains a certain item.
This RP will be broken up into chapters as to easier decide when a player may promote. It will also be broken up into four or five “Parts”. Once again, this is for ease of organization for me and for entertainment for yourself.
I am looking for a group of three to five players to begin with. (I may allow more if CS’s are good enough) As we progress, if another player desires to join, I will attempt to work out a plan for this person to join. However, before you join, do understand that this is an ADVANCED RP. This means that YES, your writing skills have to be higher than just decent and you must be willing to write more than a single paragraph in a post. If that is not something you can handle, walk away now. I’ve been around here before and I’ve seen Casual or Free players attempting to join an Advanced RP before that person was ready, and quite frankly, it normally always hurts the RP.
Otherwise, I’m looking forward to seeing people sign up. Have fun!
