Many have heard of the Fourth Dimension, but no one has ever discovered what it is, or what is there. It is said that if you see something out of the corner of your eye and follow it, you’ll find the Fourth Dimension, but no one has done it.
Enter Aurora Blackwell.
The year is 2013, and the place is a small town in the northern mountains of Georgia. Aurora Blackwell is visiting her grandparents for the summer, the same as she’s done every year since she was old enough to travel by herself. But this time, she’s determined to do something she’s never done before. Although she’s been warned for years never, ever to enter the woods on her grandparent’s property, she decides the adventure is well worth the risk. A bit of white flashes out of the corner of her eye, and she follows it to a place she never would have imagined, to take part in something she’d never Dreamed could be possible.
She knows the key; she holds the key; she is the key, and she will bring the Dream from long ago to fruition.
1) No drama in the OOC!
2) Romance is allowed, but keep it PG. Kissing is okay, but try not to go any farther than that.
3) If you have a question about anything be it ideas, or whatever, feel free to PM WarriorArnelle or legendoflink17. We'll help you out (RP wise, anyway).
4) Don't kill another player's character without permission.
5) When you attack someone, be sure to give them a chance to retaliate. This means that when Susy's character attacks Ryan's, she doesn't say that her character made definite contact with his. Give them a chance to avoid the attack if their character can.
6) This means that being in Character is very important! Stay in Character in IC.
7)No GOD MODDING. NO OP. Your character must have a weakness and they can't be immortal or invincible.
8) If you at anytime need to leave the RP, you should leave a post about your character leaving permanently for somewhere. That way, we can easily open up the space for another character!
9) If you've been inactive for more than 2 days without warning, you will be kicked from the RP. It's only fair for the people waiting on your character and I believe 2 days is plenty enough leeway.
10) Lastly, have fun and be creative!
Picture(suggested, not required)/Description:
Position: (Everyone but Aurora has to be from the Kingdom of Iaria) Example: Guard, Villager, Mother, Farmer... etc.
The Capital is called Glasscastle and is almost completely made out of a glass substance that scientists have created that is harder and stronger than steel. The entrance to Glasscastle is fortified by both a moat with a glass bridge and a glass wall with a large glass gateway that rarely opens to let people in or out.
Ashalon contains villages 1-5 and is north of Glasscastle.
Kilshen contains villages 6-10 and is southwest of Glasscastle.
Whitefield contains villages 11-15 and is southeast of Glasscastle.
This manmade river flows from the east towards Glasscastle, emptying in the moat, and then continuing towards the west, emptying into a small lake.
Name: Aurora (Male Name: Cillian Pronounced Sil-i-an Nickname, Cilly)
Background: Aurora is a spunky teenage girl in the year 2013. One day, Aurora decides to take a walk in the woods near her grandparents’ house. As a little girl, she’d always been told never to go there, because of all the monsters that lived in the woods. She’d laughed at them now, thinking how silly it was. Little did she know that what lay in that wooded area would change her life forever.
Personality: Aurora has been babied all of her life and raised to care for others. She’d never go out of her way to help someone, but she feels guilty when she knows she could have helped, so she tries. She tends to have a smile on her face most of the time and she loves the water and the sun. Her favorite season is Fall, Winter a close second, and she has no siblings. She’s indifferent to what people think of her because she’s never really thought about it. It’s in her nature to take things as they come and she loves adventure and having fun.
Background: Ketya was born in Village 3, to the west of Ashalon. He has known nothing but Village life, and he believes that everything he sees and knows is as it should be. His entire family except his little sister Meli have either Expired (reached the end of their usefulness and been culled), been Placed, or been Chosen. His two older brothers were Placed in the farmlands, where they work from before sunup to after sundown in the fields. Ketya's older sister was Chosen to be a Breeder. He hasn't seen any of them since, and he doesn't particularly care. His parents were both Expired early under strange circumstances, but Ketya doesn't think much of it. It's not unusual to him. Ketya himself was just Chosen to become the next Bellpull. It is his job to awaken the Villagers, tell them when to eat, sleep, stop work, and everything else.
Personality: Ketya is almost entirely apathetic. Bad things happen to good people, Ketya just shrugs and says, "That's how life is." He's almost incapable of caring about other people, and will not put himself in harm's way for someone else, unless it was his little sister. Meli is the only person he even pretends to care about. He does have feelings; they're just buried deep deep down inside, and it would take a miracle (or a Dream) to find them. He's not the adventurous type; he'd prefer to stay home, where he knows the rules and he knows it's safe, than to go outside the Village and have to guess.
Position: Apprentice Bellpull
Picture(suggested, not required)/Description:
Background: She is like any other girl who is from the village. She was given over to the brothel when she turned sixteen, and has been at the mercy of every man that has come into contact with her. However, after a few months of just "doing her duty" she decides that if they want her then she's going to make them work for it. There is one thing that her and her mother kept from everyone...she cannot have children. A few months after she arrived she devised a plan to escape which took her a year to put into action.
Position: Mother (brothel)
Personality: Clever, independent, kind, sassy, and modest
Name: Dorian Kane
Picture/Description:His left eye is red.
Background: Dorian was born in Kilshen and was always drawn to the river, his parents dies when he was young and as a result was raised by a different families. One in particular had fantastic stores of beings with fantastic powers who were "killed" by the regency. So when he was drafted in to the guards for his super fighting skills. he had other motives in mind...
Personality: open to ideas due to background, cocky when it comes to fighting. Really focused on staying alive, will do almost anything to live. He has a kind heart and can be a pain in the ass. He also has his own views on how the world should work, not very open with them though.
Name: Richard (Dick) Anderson
Description: Blonde-haired and steely-blue eyed, Anderson looks like the picture on a Town Guard recruitment poster. He’s about 5’ 10” and well built. He’s most often seen wearing a chain mail tunic and a tabard bearing the insignia of Iaria, but occasionally one can spot him in the tavern after the officer’s club closes for the night. He still wears his tabard, but is eager to slip out of the tunic when not on duty.
Background: Anderson was selected for the Guard at a young age, and remembers little of life as anything else. He’s been killing almost his entire life and finds no qualms with it most times. He genuinely believes that the kingdom he works for, while imperfect, is the best possible choice.
Personality: Anderson is ever the man to pick between the lesser of two evils. He believes that the government he works for is imperfect, maybe corrupt even, but he keeps his mouth shut about it because he thinks whatever the other options are are surely worse.
Personality-wise Villagers know him only as gruff and aloof. The other officers in the guard have often found him to be a relatively caring soul, who will listen to anyone. He’s a man of few words, but extremely loyal.
Position: Town Guardsman
I'd also like to explain that this will be a very slow RP. As most of us are college students, we have crap to do, or at least pretend to do. So don't expect it to go very fast. Feel free to jump in if you've been accepted.
Also, the setting is from WA's story, so if she tells you that your character doesn't fit, it's because that character doesn't fit the setting. If you have questions about the setting, WA will be able to tell you all you want to know.
