Well.....
Normally I try to avoid running multiple threads at one time. But this idea caught ahold of me in the middle of class, and refused to leave me alone. What can I say?

Ok, obviously, if you've read the first part of the RP section, this is an anthro thread. If you haven't read it, GO! Go! Go! Read it now! *waves stick shouting japanese epithets*

I'm a newbie to anthro RPs, but I really like it. For those who don't know: anthro is short for anthromorphic, which is the term for RP and story characters that are humans blended with animals. Remember the redwall books? Those are anthros.
Anthros come in all types(though felines seem to be the most popular), tigers, panthers, leopards, wolves, foxes, all kinds. How animal-like the anthro is up to you.

Other anthros are mythical creatures like dragons, who are, technically, animals, but can take a humanoid shape.

Ok, back to the thread:

The world, currently dubbed Emarran(which may change, I'm not too fond of that name) is populated by anthros. No pure humans remain, due to living so close with anthros, though many anthros are very humanoid. The climate varies greatly, from the ice-capped mountains far to the north down to the desert in the far south.

Magic is common on Emarran, as are magic-users.(though truly powerful ones are rare)
Spell magic, the most common, is divided elementally, the greater elements, fire, earth, water, air, light, dark, the lesser elements, storm, and ice. No one, no matter how powerful, can use all of the greater elements, though mastery of both of the lesser is possible. Evil mages, for example, can't use light, since it's a "good" element, while a good mage could easily use light, but not darkness.
Techno-magic is usually rune-driven, and far more difficult to create.

Technology is fairly primitive, though this varies on the region, and the technology often utilizes magic to function properly. The land is divided into realms, ruled by various lords. While bloodshed and war is common, there has been a long stretch of peace for the past two hundred years.

Races:
Emarran is populated with many different races, and several "legendary" ones.

Dragons, gryphon, unicorns, and many races like that exist, though they change into more humanoid forms to interact with other races. They count as anthros, since they are technically animals.
Mythical races that are a blend between human and animals, like mermaids and centaurs exist(again, they technically are anthros) but are rare.


I need some people to play some of Serast's "servants". Somebody has to be evil;)

Ok, so, nobody post until I greenlight it. Please post here first:)

And, just for the record, there will be no....

Beating of newcomers with sticks/guitars/wiffle bats/similar objects.
Beating of newcomers with fish or other food-products.
Throwing of said food products at newcomers.

So don't worry, this is a NEWBIE FRIENDLY thread;)

Redwall! :P Wow, that brings back some memories.

I would like to be a part of "Emmaran," though I do not completly get what you meant by anthros....

A) They are like Kimarhi from FFX (lame reference, I know)
B) They are like the characters in Redwall, as in they were "personified" but were mostly animal
C) Wolfman Jack... :P

I've only played FFVII and FFVIII:(. They're like the characters in redwall, except more humanoid, human sized, stuff like that. Not actual animals. I've seen anthros that were almost completely human, except a tail, claws, ect, so how animal-y they are is up to you.

I'll join, but be warned, I may not be here everyday...

Name: Kelia Darkspirit
Gender: Female
Race: Unicorn
Age: A Human 30ish, though her actual age is a mystery
Eyes: Sky Blue
Hair: Snow White, Long and Flowing, Slight Wave
Skin/Fur: Smokey Grey; Horn: Black
Height: 5 foot 9
Weight: 200 pounds
Build: Sleek, but toned and well muscled as all horses/unicorns
Family Origin: The Forests of Emarran
Alighnment: Neutral-Evil
Rank: Magic-User


Background: Like all unicorns, Kelia is very powerful in the ways of magic, those of light that come natural to her kind as well as any learned magic. She has retained her natural powers, and has also learn many ways of elemental spell magic from her world. Because she is a unicorn, she was sought out by an evil ice dragon, to serve him. She only does his bidding because he is holding her two young children and mate in thrall in order to gain her services.


Appearance: Kelia is tall and toned, with smokey grey fur, and snow white hair, as is her tail. Her eyes are a piercing sky blue and her horn is like black onyx, as are her hooves. She has a black and white marking of a star on her right back flank (hip). She prefers not to dress, considering this the purest form, but when she does, she chooses a long, flowing robe of black with silver trim.

She can shift into a more humanoid form using a natural ability, but chooses not to most of the time, considering this a weaker form. In her humanoid for hair remains its snow white color and her skin the smokey grey, but her tail receeds. Her mussle receeds back revealing a human female face. Her front hooves turn to black-gloved hands; her back hooves to black-booted feet. Her onyx colored horn receeds from her forehead leaving the mark of a lightening bolt of the same color. As in her animal form, she chooses to only cover herself with her black and silver robe.


Personality: Alternating somewhere between Neutral-Good and Neutral-Evil, depending on her needs. She can be as warm-hearted as easily as she can be cold and calculating.

Weapon(s): Magic, Horn, Hooves, Teeth

Other(s): Kelia's Magic: A few Natural Abilities (including mindspeak, shifting to her humanoid form, minor healing powers) as well as her learned Elemental Spell Magic. (Greater - Darkness, Fire, Air, Water; Lesser - Storm and Ice)

This is my opinion of Anthros: Not all of them have "humanoid" forms. Big Cats, Dogs, Wolves, Foxes etc look completely animal-like , they just talk, act, and walk on two legs like humans. The definition of anthros given to me was "animals with human characteristics". In the case of my Kelia, she is completely unicorn looking...she just chooses to walk on two legs instead of four at times.

Now, in my opinion, the only anthros that should have a humiod form are the ones that can use magical abilities to achieve one. Dragons, Unicorns, etc. But humanoid forms aren't a necessity for any anthro.

Just my thoughts. :)

Arten sounds like a good character:)



Alignment: (Not really sure what these mean yet, but this one sounded good) Chaotic evil


Alignment means whether they're good or evil or indifferent, basically.


Magic: What kind of magic?


The magic on Emarran's set up elementally: no mage can use all the elements, not even the most powerful.
The elements:

Greater elements-
Fire, earth, water, air, light, dark
Evil people cannot use light magic, since it's a "good" magic, and good mages can't use dark magic, since it's evil. The rest are up for grabs. Average magic users use two-three greater elements.

The lesser elements-
Well, only two, now- ice and storm.

The elements are used through spells and runes.

I'm not being confusing am I??

How are cities in Emarran set up? Modern? Low technology? Run by Magic?

And what of the citizens. All anthros?

And what of the citizens. All anthros?


The cities are ruled by a council of various members of important families. The technology is mostly run by rune-magic, around midieval, a little more advanced. Cerason is in a valley in the Icesong mountains, a chilly and wintry city. The council was dominated before by the family of wolves who are descended from the city founders, though lately felines, displaced from a destroyed city farther in the mountains, have been insinuating themselves.

All the citizens are anthro, or at least part. No pure humans remain on Emarran, though not so long ago there were many.

Can I still join? My kid is pretty much a merc that just wants to eat and fight, so a good entrance for him if you allow him to join would be through hiring him. I read that this is a newbie friendly place so I’ll try my best to keep my end by trying hard to not be a powergamer and not do that mistake I did in the white wolf thread, a very bad experience. I still shudder at what they called me (I shake as if freezing) I tried to apologize but ended up challenging some one for a fight in the battlefield. I lack manners in things like this so I am open to reprimands, no matter how harsh. Yeah I am definitely a noob. By the way I said that my kid has some unknown potential in magic so I am hoping to revert this while in the RP. If the Threadmaster allows it.








Name: Kraven
Gender: Male
Race: Black Tiger
Age: 19
Eyes: Red, black pupils
Hair: Black, White Stripes
Skin/Fur: Black, White Stripes
Height: 5’11
Weight: 250 lbs.
Build: Muscular but in a not superhero way. Think Spiderman build, just slightly bigger
Family Origin: Royal aristocrats, he was treated like a disease
Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
Rank: None
Magic: Has potential of unknown quantities but has not given much thought to garnering it


Physical Appearance: Black for with white stripes, muscular build and wears a black breastplate of ornate design of some great chivalric order. It is sleeveless showing his muscular arms with its white stripes and he procured it from a killed knight, probably a tiger of his similar physique. He wears sturdy leggings of fine make, again procured from killed adversaries. He wears shin greaves of ornate design again procured from killed adversaries. He also wears a belt with metal tassets and a singular length of black cloth rolling down between his legs (Very similar to what monks may use). The breastplate is black colored and outlined with red as so does the others armaments and clothing except his sword, which is pure black, jet black.


Background: He lived a life of scorn and prejudice. He was born to a family of aristocratic white tigers and was an accident nobody knows how it happened. His parents were both prominent white tigers but he was different. He was born the youngest of five and was regarded with public scorn and intolerance. He was always kept in the background to save the face of the clan, even though his parents secretly showered their loved for him. They kept it as a secret from even their children who had grown among snobbish aristocrats. Upon the age of 10 he was within a baggage carriage hiding from sight when a groups of merciless bandits attacked the convoy. His eldest brother headed the wardship of the convoy and was swift to ensue orders of defense upon hired mercenaries, called the Band. Kraven, who was known as Haldrai then, leapt from hiding to search for his parents. He evaded battle to find them dead upon a bandit’s blade. He roared a great battlecry before leaping upon the assailer.


He turned the bandit into nothing more than a dead body with his bare claws. He then took up the blade and began to join the fray. Strangely, fighting seemed to flow in his blood as a gene. He, even though he was young, was able to hold his ground and fight bravely. Despite such a feat the convoy was massacred, and only he survived it. He did so by falling under a carriage, unconscious. He would not have been in such a state if only his brother, the eldest, did not distract him. That brother, who was dying at the mercy of the bandits said while Kraven held them off, “Leave me be Black fur. I need not the protection of a disease.” This made him flinch thus taking an almost fatal blow.

After the incident he changed his name and wandered about the lands. He joined a bandit group not similar to that that attacked his convoy. He was able to grow in might and prowess within combat. Soon however he found that the band he joined was in league with the band that destroyed his parent’s lives. He did not care much for the others that treated him like worm dung. There he further found that the mercenary group and the bandit group were one and the same. He excused himself when a band meeting was held and observed a distance off. Unknown to them he had set explosive barrels upon the seats hiding them as simple seats themselves. Soon a light was made and everything was ignited. When their numbers was dwindled he charged forth slaughtering everyone in his path. From then on he lived a life of wandering drifting from mercenary group to mercenary group for sustenance and food, and secretly and subconsciously, blood.


Personality: Dark, Brooding, Emotionless, Uncaring, Silent, Uncaring, Hateful of Nobles, Uncaring, Individualistic, Uncaring (for his life and yours)


Weapon(s): A black sword he had come to call and love as, Sable Morte. Words that had come to him while in the heat of battle. He got the sword after killing a noble warrior. He did not care who it was. Strangely enough the sword could speak to him as though it was alive. But only in his thoughts and dreams nothing more. Haunting him dreams of gore and death dreams he welcomed and relished. It is as wide as the balm of your hand and as long as an arm plus five inches.


Other(s): He has no idea as to how to use magic but his sword, although not capable of doing magical damage (Remains to be Seen if the Threadmaster would permit a hidden and dangerous power) but can slice through not very powerful magical barriers and protections. It can inform the Tiger of traps except maybe very powerful magical traps, and it can also inform him of nearby hostiles (what the sword considers to be hostile, thus very unreliable).

Whenever he is in a state of bloodlust his entire vision of what he sees changes. For in truth it should because his eyes themselves burn a fierce red glow when in this state. What he sees include the fact that people turn into gray human like shapes, everything becomes a blur of gray, and some shapes come off as either white or black. He usually attacks the black ones but sometimes the white one. He got this when he was young or maybe even before. He only knew that if ever he were very angry, his vision would change. Another strange article is that some shapes even though they are of any color seem to carry upon their back banners bearing a cross split diagonally upon the middle. The top half was white while the lower was black.

When in bloodlust he is incredibly silent ceasing to chant battlecries nobody understands (Latin Language). He becomes swifter and crueler in killing from any angle perceivable and possible. His strength grows to unknown heights, as does his agility and senses.

Sounds like a cool character. But I'm not the Thread Leader. Thats Avenging_Angel, and if you read the In/Out Forum, you'll see she has put this thread on hold for now. But, hope to play with you if/when it gets running again. :)

lemme guess, she got finals this week or the next? typical for this time of year, mine's the best, cuz i just got done with my finals, now i can visit this site anytime of the day. as for my character i pretty much hope the threadmaster allows it cuz i got some pretty dramatic actions up my sleeve, i just hope nobody here likes to steal ideas. I still get shivers from what i did with one of the white wolf threads. I just hope i don't do the same here, cuz i wrecked the thread.

Now now, since you said you were open to criticism...

Use capitalization and correct grammar. Also, do not use words like "cuz", just spell it out. If you do these things, you will gain people's respect quicker (such as mine).

Cool ,thanks for the heads up. By the way, can I use the words like "cuz" to denote accent.

:P

I will admit that I have a bit of a southern accent, but I try to use English, not southern. I suppose if you really wanted to though.... ;)

Did AvA say how long she would be gone, or is she just collecting herself? I know she has suffered a burnout so I suppose..... Does anyone have an idea?

I talked to her a bit ago. She just said she'd try not to be to long and the thread was on hold until she got back.

I intend on restarting this when I have enough time to give it the attention it deserves. I'll be archiving it myself, in case it gets deleted by mods in this "great purge", I worked too hard on all my posts to lose them now(we all did!)! I'll archive all the RP section, but not all of the OOC, only posts that are relevant. (character sheets, etc)

I was wondering if you would be willing to allow me to join in? If so, here are the char stats. He would be evil since you said Serast needed servants.

Name: Myu Du Papillón
Gender: Male
Race: Moth
Age: 23
Eyes: His eyes don't have pupils, they're just all a dark purple, sort of bug-like.
Hair: Same color as his eyes, dark purple.
Skin/Fur: Fair, neither too pale, nor dark.
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 160lbs
Build: Fairly scrawny, very little muscle mass.
Family Origin: From a rich and kind family, but he broke away.
Alignment: Lawful Evil
Rank: Spectre.


Background: Having led an army of good for a couple of years since a young age, he had fought many battles with his sword and shield. The battles grew fiercer as the years went by, when finally, when he turned 19, his city fell to the forces of evil. He fought to reclaim it, but it was in vain. Having used a little bit of magic to enhance his swordfight, he was approached by a mysterious figure who gave him an option, Myu would either die right there and then as the dark figure would snap his neck in two in an instance, or he could join him. Having been disheartened by a losing battle to the forces of evil, he agreed to join this mysterious figure. As such, he relinquished his sword and shield, and was given the armor of Papillón, the Dark Fey. He mastered hand to hand combat, though it wasn't his expertise, he was taught mostly in the magic arts of air and darkness, to become a master illusionist as he toyed with the dark. He disappeared for a while, and reappeared, free from his bounds to his new dark master, but still seeks to infuse evil into the world.

Appearance: He dons the armor of Papillón. The armor is of a dark amber color, and fragmented into several v-shaped sections, the fragmented pattern makes it look like a bug's body. His helmet only protects his forehead, and the sides end at the bottom of his ears. On the top corner of the mask, there are two large green gems, reprenting the eyes of an insect. The shoulderpads are only fragmented into two sections, and there's a gap in his armor between his shoulderpads and his armor's sleeves that exposes his skin. There are three small half-spheres on the chest, two of them seem to connect the shoulderpads, and the other is in between them. His gauntlets are a dark purple, and his knuckles are covered with the amber metal of the rest of the armor. He also has moth wings, which go from a dull yellow at the top to a darker green at the bottom tips. The veins and edges are black in color of the wings.

Personality: He is timid, but is over confident in his own abilities. As such, he longs to fight an equal just to proof he is the best fighter out there. His overconfidence, makes him overlook important details while fighting others. He is very patient though, and rarely taken by surprise.

Weapon(s): He depends only on the illusions caused by his Air and Dark magics, and can hold his own with martial arts if the need arises, though he doesn't like depending on his fists. His overconfidence stopped him from learning a "lesser" element of magic.

Other(s): He has an ability to summon Dark Feys (faery like creatures), and after they've been summoned, he can casy his spell Thronging of Darkness to try and sufficate his foes by massing them near his foe's face. He can also use Midnight Silk to encase his foes in a coccoon, though it doesn't hold for long nor is it particularly dangerous (though he likes to torture any small animal he can by having them run out of air in his coccoons, not nearly strong enough to hold any sort of fighter in them to cause damage). His Dark Feys always find his foes once summoned.

Welcome aboard!

Your character seems fairly good, nice unconventional anthro. However, the only problem I have is with these "Dark Feys", they don't really fit the setting.
Other then that, I love it, good backstory and everything. :)

Name: Sable and Sabastien Darkspirit
Gender: Female and Male Twins
Race: Anthro Unicorns
Age: Human's 10 years old
Eyes: Sky Blue
Hair: Onyx Black
Skin/Fur: Smokey Grey; Horns - Golden
Height: 5 foot 7
Weight: 160 pounds
Build: Sleek and toned
Family Origin: The Forests of Emarran
Alignment: Neutral-Good (both)
Rank: Magic-User (both)


Background: Sable and Sabastien Darkspirit were born to parents Darius and Kelia roughly 10 years ago in their home deep in the Forests of Emarran. When an evil Ice Dragon was released from his magical prison, and their Mother was sought out as one of his servants, the young unicorn twins were taken by the Ice Dragon as leverage. The evil one killed their Father, though their Mother does not know this.

Appearance: Sable and Sabastien are intentical twins. The both have their Mother's smokey grey fur and sky blue eyes. Their hair (mane's), tail, and hooves are onyx black. Their horns are a golden color, from their Father, and the star markings on their flanks (hips) are golden and white. Sable's marking is on the right side; Sabastien's is on left. They have both been taught not to dress whenever possible, but when they do Sable prefers a flowing, ankle length wine colored gown. Sabastien favors black pants and a dark blue shirt with a black vest.

As their parents have taught them the natural ability of shifting, both Sable and Sabastien have the power to take a Humaniod form. Though they have the ability they both very rearely take this other form. When they do, the results are a 10 year old boy and girl with smokey grey skin, sky blue eyes and onyx black hair, which Sable wears to her waist while her brother wears short. Their tails and horns receed and their hooves change to black-gloved hands and black booted feet. The loss of their horns leave a golden star on Sable's forehead and a golden blaze on Sabastien's. They prefer the same type of clothing in their Humanoid forms as in their trueanimal forms.

Personality: Neutral-Good. Adventurous, spirited, open and friendly. Sabastien is more likely to rush in and try anything, taking things for what they appear. Sable is slightly more cautious.


Weapon(s): Magic, Horn, Hooves, Teeth


Other(s): The Twins Magic - Natural Abilities (including mindspeak, shifting to humanoid form, minor healing), Greater - Light, Air, Water; Lesser - Ice
