The Prince of Knowledge- Fantasy RP Interest Check~!
In this world, knowledge is power.
Weaver knew this. Even as a ten-year old boy, he knew this.
He started off as the servant to a powerful royal, the King of Raeiflin. The King was a tyrant. A warlord, a commander, a puppetmaster... But he was also a fool.
Weaver escaped the grasp of the King of Raeiflin when he was ten-years old by driving a knife into his flabby neck whilst he slept. He fled the scene of the crime, and eventually found himself in the house of an old man, dressed in the blue robes of an experienced arcanist.
"Boy... You have blood on your hands, and guilt in your eyes... These things won't get you far in life. Surrender your sins to me and become enlightened." Weaver confessed his sin to the old man, who introduced himself as Drezil Shadowscar, the keeper of the fountain of knowledge. He raised Weaver until the boy was eighteen.
When Weaver was eighteen, he was allowed to be baptised in the fountain of knowledge to receive true enlightenment. He did far more than bathe.
He drank the waters of the fountain of knowledge, and he learned of everything- The stars in the sky, the names of heroes unborn, the past, the present, the future... He became a god; the first mortal to ever achieve this.
Weaver, the Prince of Knowledge, used ancient words of power to invoke divine judgement on Drezil. Drezil was killed by Weaver that day, and was doomed to eternal misery in Weaver's mind.
Weaver discovered that by imprisoning a person within his mind, he gained all of their power... Knowledge truly was power, to him.
He set off into the world, gathering followers as he did so. He could grant anything he wanted to those who followed him, and he knew it.
He has torn apart society, and destroyed the castles and houses of Raeiflin and Nashen, the neighbouring continent.
You want to stop him. He might have killed your family or recruited them; perhaps you used to be part of his followers?
You will travel across the shattered lands of Nashen and Raeiflin, stomping out the followers of Weaver and building up friendships and possibly romantic relationships along the way to killing him.
Or maybe you will be the one to be killed. Only time will tell.
*Raeiflin is pronounced: Ray-if-lin.
Hey, guysh! I'm TheWarpedWizard. I actually put a fair bit of time into this, so please don't insult it! Seriously, if you do, I'll probably cry or something.
This will be a free-form RP, but I would like to set up some basic rules as well.
1. No god-moding.
2. This is in a fantasy-setting, so there are clerics, knights, mages, necromancers, elves, orcs, etc.
3. Give everyone the chance to shine! (As in, don't hog the spot-light!)
4. If you want to leave, write some kind of cool and dramatic death scene.
I will put up a sign-up sheet once I have a good idea of who is interested. Good-bye for now!
P.S: I won't be on until 3:00 PM tommorow, GMT. Sorry about that.
