So if I wanted to join the RP what would you request that I do? Here is my char. I wanted to join ur adventure cus of the obvious similarity in being half drow.

Half-Drow and Half-Human
Age: 103
Class: Self-Proclaimed Bladesinger
Weapons: Rapier, Dagger
Description: Sigg has the look of a Drow at a glance but upon closer inspection his human qualities are more apparent. He stands at about 6 feet tall and weighs only 150 to 160 pounds. Although somewhat thin, he is decently built to accentuate his innate elf agility.
Sigg has been an outcast most of his life because of his mixed blood, being shunned by elves as well as humans. His parents abandoned him at a very early age, leaving him to fend for himself against nature as well as the unaccepting societies. He goes from town to town on a seemingly endless quest to fill some void within him but, alas, he does not know what he is looking for. However, during a visit to a prestigious elven city he silently spied on a master and disciple of Bladesingers until he had perfected the arts, giving him the ability to use his blade elegantly and efficiently as well as to use an array of basic arcane magical spells. After many experiences of rejection, Sigg has almost lost the ability to trust others and is quickly losing faith in himself as well as the hope he had been using to fuel his perpetually dismal life. He is practically drowned in despair and reaches for even the furthest stars for acceptance. Thus bringing him to the Underdark.

01/06/2005 7:48 PM

maybe someone will

01/08/2005 8:31 PM

I'm very sorry I didn't post here right away, I had a couple things I about the character I wanted to work on. Well no excuses. Here it is:

Name: Zandrin Giir
Age: 314
Class: Wizard
Gender: Male
Weapon: Throwing Knives
History: With the support of his sister, a high priestess of House Druu'Giir, Zandrin entered The Academy to become a wizard. He then became a Master of Sorcere and murdered his sister to free himself of the chains that tied him to House Druu'Giir. In the late years of his life he has become more paranoid, secretive and tired of the chaotic society of the drow. Lately, he has also become involved in very strange business...

What do you want, an army marching out of Menzoberranzan?
Pardon my impatience.

01/13/2005 5:01 AM

Hey Solerin, I'm just wondering, how do you want to do this? Do you want to be the one who mostly decides what happens and all that or do you want the other people to contribute a lot or what? I don't want to overstep my boundaries or anything and mess things up if you have stuff planned.

01/13/2005 12:56 PM

Everyone should contribute, but i want it to take a while to leave the Underdark. Then we can have a sequel of the adventures above ground too.

01/13/2005 2:06 PM

Is it to late to join?

Name: Farin Valandil
Race: Drow
Hair: ...White, down to shoulders
Eyes: ...Red
Skin: Medium
Age: 60
Powers: Drow and Assassin
Weapons: Drow Wakizahi's (2)
Appearance: Black Mesh Armor and Piwafwi (sp)
Class: Assassin
Personality: Headstrong and cocky, also tends to be very secretive
BG: Member of Bregan D'aerthe. He ran away from his matron mother after he had trained at the academy, sensing his house's demise. He slowly gained respect in the mercenary band and found his place in the close knit family that has become Bregan D'aerthe. He has a strong sense of survival and is tired of the games of the Matron Mothers and the Spider Queen after her defeat at Mithril Hall. He has no respect for the heirarchy of the dark elves.

How is this?

01/14/2005 3:39 AM

My suggestion is that we leave the tavern and anyone who is still interested in joining must show it by doing something to contact the party. Because I think a few people came in and aren't really planning on coming along because they lost interest or whatever... so yeah, i suggest that we leave and anyone who follows can be considered still part of the adventure.

01/14/2005 1:13 PM

thats great Exile now find a way to join but be out of the tavern

01/14/2005 3:15 PM

I'll join later on, when everyone is out of the tavern. I think this would be best since i'm a member of the mercenary band. Any objections?

01/14/2005 6:30 PM

yeah cool you could be hired to kill us our something

01/16/2005 8:14 PM

I take it that you are familiar with the many series of Drizzt books then? I need to know how long it has been since Drizzt left the underdark or around what book (Streams of Silver, Spine of the World, etc.) this time period is.

01/18/2005 1:39 PM

the year is 1333, Year of the Striking Falcon, so about 5 years sice Drizzt left
This is the map for Menzoberranzan [url][/url]

01/18/2005 1:43 PM

Ok, thanks. So this is around The Icewind Dale Trilogy? Just to get a feel.

01/19/2005 2:15 AM

The way this is going it feels like the journey out of the Underdark isn't going to very long, at least not the way you said you wanted it. I don't know, I guess you know what you want...

01/23/2005 4:36 AM

Lord Tekesu, I really don't mean any offense by this man, but your char is a little ridiculous, can you please try to make him not such an unbelievable "super character"?

02/01/2005 9:54 PM

Woah! This is were it ends, strange... -_-

02/05/2005 4:56 AM

Sorry, at first I thought Solerin would want to continue it because it is sort of an integral part and he is the leader of the group in a way... then midterms came(still actually in the middle of them) so i kind of forget/didnt have time. but ill try to keep it going now.

02/05/2005 8:53 PM

What happened?

02/11/2005 12:54 AM

In the game? My character didn't come out of his hiding behind the rocks (at first), instead he cast an illusion to make you think he did. When he saw no danger he dispelled the illusion and came out from behind the rocks. With Lord Tekesu i have no idea what happened.

02/11/2005 3:46 PM

Name: Nevika Katrikon
Age: 157
Race: Sorceress
Height: 5' 3"
Weight: 115
Hair: Dark brown, wavy, and long reaching almost to her knees.
Skin-tone: Dark complexion
Eyes: Dark Brown
Build: Strong
History: Being born of a Siren mother and Elf father she became very powerful at a very young age. And as her powers grew he left her mother, and traveled to a high mountain were she lived on her own for sometime. Secluding herself she became even stronger, but needed more than this hole in a mountain top. Nevika left looking to travel, and put her talents to use.

02/11/2005 3:50 PM

Race: Sorceress

Eh... Isn't that like job or something???

02/11/2005 6:11 PM

Maybe if you look at it that way, but couldn't you be born with the ability?

02/19/2005 9:23 PM

Should we... wait for someone else???

02/19/2005 9:27 PM

You talking about me?

02/20/2005 1:21 PM

I meant wait for Solerin, Nevika, Syndillia, or Odin. Should we just keep going with the story, or wait for someone else to post?

02/20/2005 1:26 PM

Hmmm. Well, I hardly ever see those guys on so... I think we should wait. Perhaps someone could start up a new thread?

02/21/2005 3:09 AM

It makes little difference to me, although if we kept going I don't see any reason why someone couldnt just introduce themselves in the middle of it... but it's up to you guys, I'm willing to do either. As for starting another thread, what do you mean? like a different adventure with the same chars or what?

02/21/2005 1:35 PM

a different adventure

Yes, a whole new adventure set in the Underdark.

with the same chars

You could use same characters if you want (I probably will).

If this thread ever picks up, I will probably meet the band in the Underdark. ;)

02/22/2005 2:13 AM

Well all right then... but I'm not very good at this, perhaps someone else should start the new thread with a new base plot line... I could try if no one else wants to though.

02/22/2005 2:16 PM

I have too many of my own... I would be happy to join though.

02/28/2005 12:27 AM

Call me impatient, but I don't feel like waiting anymore. I say we give them a few days, and if they don't reply, we kill them off or leave them behind.

02/28/2005 12:53 AM

I won't call you impatient, because even waiting this long shows much patience... and sure, we can do that if you want.

02/28/2005 6:15 PM

I will kill them.

*evil smile*

03/01/2005 4:03 AM

You're certainly welcome to... assuming you guys dont mind it being just us 3, because I don't think anyone else is going to participate.

03/06/2005 10:43 AM

I got no more patience. Kill them! (I always wanted to say that)
We either go on or I'm out.

03/06/2005 12:21 PM

Oh, I didn't realize you wanted to me to kill them RIGHT now...

*steps out from the shadows*

03/06/2005 12:23 PM

Who am I killing..?

(All not dying say "Not I." I will give you one day... unless someone just tells me who to kill. ;))

03/07/2005 2:17 AM

All right here's how I see it...

Syndilia only made 1 post and she is still technically in the tavern so no need to kill her.

Odin2's char "Tall Drow Mage" somehow slipped into the tunnel, I guess you can just leave him, as of yet he hasn't made contact so for the story to continue smoothly, you don't necessarily have to do anything with him

Lord Tekesu.... well.... uhhhh, I don't know... You decide, we could choose to just ignore the "Mysterious voice" or you can discover him behind his rock and shove a dagger in his eye, up to you.

and last but not least, I'd feel bad killing solerin in his own adventure... so maybe you could just incapacitate him? I don't know, he is really the own one who needs to be dealt with... you can be his assassin or whatever, come up with something but like i said, he is really the only person who has truly made contact that has become unresponsive, so just deal with him.

03/10/2005 1:31 PM

*shifty glance*

Whoops! I totally forgot about this thread... :( Sorry.

Do you guys still want me to kill them off or could you just leave them behind??

03/10/2005 3:27 PM

sorry wrong thread. man im dense.

[Edited by Chaotic_Wolf_Anthro on Friday, March 11, 2005 8:18 PM]

03/12/2005 5:23 AM

It really makes no difference to me at all... someone make a move though.

03/12/2005 8:27 AM

Ok, I have left him for dead. I did not touch any other than Solerin.

03/29/2005 11:57 PM

You know, I didn't thin about this before, but ths story, it takes place before The War of the Spider Queen, right? It kind of has to, since the last book isn't published yet. :P

Just in case, I'm refering to the series by R.A. Salvatore and various other authors, The War of the Spider Queen.
