This is set in a Fantasy type genre the world is full of strange and fascinating creatures. (Think Pirates of the Caribbean timeline for setting)
Your character sets off in search of a treasure/place/etc that is known as more of a legend or fairytale than an actual thing. He has an idea of where to look, but after several failed attempts begins to loose hope that it is real and decides to give up.
Upon entering a strange port your character happens upon an old woman that seems to speak in nothing but riddles. Paying her no mind he is intent on finding something of interest to take his mind off the search, when she says something that catches his attention.
She holds the information that is a vital part of the key in finding what he seeks, but will it turn out the way he thinks?
Will explain further in PM if you are interested!
I'm not going to write out a whole long list of rules, just a couple little things that I ask you would please consider carefully before contacting me.
What I ask, is that if you are really interested you will put in enough effort to actually try get it going, I love creating stories and characters, but do not like being the only one that directs the story and makes things happen. I like being surprised by something unexpected and like it when the other person takes initiative to feel free enough to put their own spin on what is happening.
Also, please be able to use correct grammar and write at least a couple paragraphs for each reply. I realize the length of posts can fluctuate a lot depending on what is going on, but I don't do 1-2 liners.
I know life gets busy and comes first, but please, please let me know if something comes up! If I don't hear from you in 5 days I'll consider you to have abandoned the RP, or something really important came up. If I don't hear from you in 9 days, explaining what happened, I'll consider it truly dead and move on.
(A side note on this - If I see you posting a lot elsewhere on the site, and you seem to be completely ignoring me for days without a word of explanation, it is cause enough for me to move on. I'm sorry if that sounds harsh, but it has happened to me before and I've had to wait weeks before finding out that the person wasn't going to continue.) I don't bite, really I don't, so if you just aren't feeling like replying, or are stuck, it would be really nice just to send me a quick note letting me know you are still interested, but it might be a couple days. That would be very much appreciated!
Okay, those are the only things I'm going to list If you are at all interested in the plot and we get to planning, we can exchange further preferences and things so we know what to expect from each other.
