yep definately interested!! Skeleton?
I know it must seem a bit suspect to see one of the new people immediately start picketing around their idea for a new RP, but I'd certainly be happy if you gave mine a listen. Just planning out what would be a basic run-of-the-mill Fantasy RP, suggestions and comments welcome. It's just something I'm in the mood for; a good mix of characterization, action, and exploration! So here we go.
- The Kingdom (continent) of Etil, in the realm (world) of Arth. Presided over by the benevolent Royal Family who reside in the capitol city of Regalin, centuries of peace have come to an abrupt halt with the invasion of the Krad Empire. Though not a complete takeover, the militant nation has managed to seize some of the outlier territories and villages of Etil while sending ambassadors to Regalin in order to act on their political behalf. Despite reassuring the Kingdom there is no cause for alarm, the ever-expanding grasp of the invaders begs to differ. While normally a man of his people, something has recently turned him to inaction...
And of course, the presence of a fabled Legendary Treasure sleeping beneath Regalin does little to dissuade Krad presence in Etil.
- The roleplay, initially from the start, will take place in the kingdom of Etil. I'm not going to go into a whole lot of detail on the land, since I think it's a lot more fun to build the world as a group! However, I will outline a few basics as well as several landmarks.
-Regalin is in the center of the continent, and has main roads leading in the four cardinal directions. Starting in the North, we have....
----The Northrite Mountains, an imposing mountain range to the north, just as the name indicates.
----The Eastaire Plains, a huge expanse of arid lowlands that eventually becomes total desert
----The Southend Swamplands, an endless and treacherous system of marshes and mires
----The Westwind Hills, a system of foothills, coastal plains, forests, and several lakes that lead to ocean ports
(NOTE: The tech level of Etil is what you'd expect of most high fantasy-esque stuff, but the Krad Empire has access to plenty of steampunk technology including primitive guns and other gadgets....this means that due to trade and production, they can be distributed around.)
- So obviously, I'm not looking to break a lot of ground with this RP. But I'm just looking to have a bit of fun, and I think that's important. So the tone is somewhat light-hearted (can you tell with all of the locations' terrible pun-names?). If I could describe the feel for it in any way, I'd sort of consider it like a sort of Nintendo world. Things can be simple, and even a bit funny, but there's definitely room for depth and solid plotlines. In fact, I've already got a long-term plot in the works (PM me if curious!) so don't think I'm some simpleton.
There's magic, weapons, quests, war, all this good stuff to be had. So if you're the least bit interested, go ahead and hop on board! critique and suggestions welcome.

Sorry Kim Jong un
Example of a Skeleton:
Name: Leon "The Duke" Romanov
-Russian Spetsnaz Training
-noted subjects reflex testing have scored well above average.
-subject seems to be very resourceful, taking out their target in some very unorthodox ways.
-subject has an "unhealthy" affinity for his sidearm. Subject dislocated a superiors arm when he tried to take his weapon.
-"Das Vidanya" is etched along the barrel
-Nicknamed "Comrade" the only peice of "modern technology" on Duke. The Emp emits a 360° pulse that completely shuts down all electronics (including Nanomachines) in a 100ft radius. The effect only lasts for 3 minutes, and has a 20 minute cooldown period. It also doubles as a PDA and GPS.
History: Leon was drafted into the Russian armed forces at age 17. Showing natural talent and extraordinary promise, Leon was given a small team at his disposal at age 23. During a mission, Leon was tasked with infiltrating an illegal terrorist orginization and assigned alongside a team of Spetsnaz forces. The mission did not go according to plan. the intel was false and instead of the intended target, there was an ambush lying in wait with an automated gun emplacement. Leons team was completely wiped out as well as 3 of the 6 man Spetsnaz team.
As they finally escaped, the lead commander on Spetsnaz noticed how calm and collected he was under fire. Requisitioning for his transfer. Leon received special training and access to Non-Standard equipment. Being part of a very strict and demanding crew.
At age 30, Leo was given the option to join MIRACLE. Hearing nothing about this new company has kept him skeptical. But promises of an extremely large payraise had convinced him.
Other: Duke has a hatred for all things .modern. he refused the nanomachine injection, and only wears "Comrade" because it "feels" the same way he does.
Ohhh gotcha. Glad to see some people are interested. Happy to put up the character outline, or I suppose I'll call it THE SKELETON. However, save your actual application for the OOC Thread itself; this is just to help you get started and planning.
Name: character name; as normal or crazy-sounding as you see fit
Race: hey you can be whatever you want! humans would be the "dominant" race in the kingdom, but if you can think it then you can be it! just make sure to include a decently-detailed description if it's an original creation. for that matter, try to keep it pretty original. (ex: an elf would be fine, but a moogle, not so much)
Appearance: racial description may go in this box, or in conjunction
Personality: how the character acts! try to write a few sentences maybe?
Bio: as short or as long as it needs to be....what are their goals in this RP? for instance, my character will be journeying to Regalin in order to request aid from the king, since his village has been captured by Krad soldiers.
Weapons/Equipment: any swords, bows, wands, etc. but also bags, bottles, snacks, and the like
Magic: pretty loosely-defined here--anything from fireballs to telepathy to summoning. if it's a mystical ability that doesn't go to your character's race, put it here!
Special Skills: maybe your character is an expert farmer or tree-climber...put it here
Interest has me! Working on my character sheet now! Would an alchemist of sorts be cool with you?
Rinn: undead like zombie or vampire or other? anything is fine, but a zombie might be a bit tough to RP as...
MacDoogle: alchemist sound great!
