Hail, role-players! I'm looking for a wide audience to RP in an original setting called Crimson Fate, in a world known as Atleah (see the map below). This is high-fantasy inspired by the complex myth of Tolkien, the political intrigue of George R. R. Martin, and the rich and character-centric action and drama of Robert Jordan, in a new, original setting for players looking to introduce their new or old characters to. The main "base" of RP would take place in the city of Nautilus, a mountainside city facing the sea and overlooking Nautilus Harbor on the Sea of Tempests. A harsh imperial government that has outlawed magic works daily to suppress the symptoms of a hidden rebellion, and rebels and casters alike line the walls and outside of the city as a warning to all. Meanwhile, plague festers in the lower city, begging for a cure that the King has failed to deal with.
Crimson Fate has two sides: the regular RP that takes place in Nautilus and regular quests that will introduce people to the greater world beyond, with its rich history already written and waiting to be penetrated. Crimson Fate is not about Atleah only. It's about what players can come to offer, and how they can shape the future of the world and forge their place in it. I welcome serious role-players looking to shape a world together.
The races of Atleah include but are not limited to: Humans (from Grand Fal and Bath), High Elves (from Kai and the Greenwood, and the river city of Alvondiel), Wood Elves (from the Greenwood and Bath), Half-Elves, Dark Elves (from the slaver nation of Holm) Dwarves (from the stretches of the Serpentine in Bath), Halflings (from the hills of Bath's north), Orcs (from the clan-war nation of Malan), Ogres (an enslaved race living across the world in service as labor and guards to others), Zionics (a special, albino-like race that has emerged at the Tower of the Seer in western Bath), Merfolk, and more. There is also a vampiric presence in Atleah for those interested in pursuing a more gothic and darker role.
More information is availabile at the wiki in development:
Please feel free to check out the OOC threads and don't hesitate to venture into the "Crimson Fate: Open Hand Tavern" thread to introduce your character and get a little bit of familiarity with the setting.
I look forward to adventure, action, scheming, passion, danger, and all things involved with well written RP.
