Ok. This is going to be my thread that I DM. Now, everyone and anyone is welcome to join, from the skilled to the... not so skilled. :)

Everyone post your characters here. I want to see how many are interested before I start it up so I can decide which story to use. :P

Notes...
- Only serious players
- If you just drop it let me know so I can kill.. uh.. let your character go.
- If you do not respond in the thread for an extended period of time and the story is waiting on you... your character will most likely be smitten by a lightening bolt or some other "natural" cause. :)
- I am DM so... ABSOLUTLY NO POWER GAMING or there WILL be consequences
* Your character's death
* Very bad injury

Finch Fan? :)

Name: Lucan Strohm
Age: 25
Race: Human
Class: Rogue(16)
Alignment: Chaotic N.
Diety: None

Description: Lucan is a silver-tongued outlaw who dabbles in thievery. He can usually be found in a tavern, listening to local gossip to see if there are any works of art or artifacts worth stealing. His garb is actually quite flambouyant considering his profession. He wears a red coat with gold embroidery that buttons up the front He wears it with the left sleeve hanging back, revealing his muscular arm (think Auron from FF X minus the huge lapels). He also wears a large plumed, wide brimmed hat. His weapons of choice are a rapier +2 and the Assassin's Dagger (+2, elfbane). he is known also to take the occasional contract killing.

Background: When Lucan was young, his parents were killed by the Bloodmoon Hearts, unbeknownst to him. He later joined the Bloodmoon Hearts, not knowing that they murdered his parents. He had climbed quite high in their ranks by the time he discovered that they were the perpetrators of his parents' murder. Upon finding this out, Lucan's vengence was swift and merciless. There are no surviving members of the Bloodmoon Hearts today. In short, Lucan has amazing potential as an ally, but his potential is far more as an enemy.

A little. I was listening to the song when I decided to start the thread up. :P

Now... a level sixteen human would be quite a bit older than 25... Just don't worry about the whole level system, we'll just gauge levels by how well you RP. I mean... we aren't going to roll dice or anything it's just going to be me deciding what I think would be the logical thing to happen.

Alright. I was counting in the time of his youth that he spent in the guild training as a thief. But your logic sounds better.

You knew about this! It was in the Interest part of the site. You can play assimar if you give a good history/background. :D

You said you'd post up a storyline. Well, no matter as long as I get what I want.

Name: Elavar Moonshadow
Race: Planetouched (Aasimar, Elf)
Class: Druid
Deity: Mielikki
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Description: Elavar looks like a normal elf at first look, but a closer inspection reveals the celestial blood that runs through his veins. He has the golden hair and pointed ears of an elf, but his features are more exotic than an elf's. He is quite good-looking because of his holy ancestor, but prefers to hide it, as he seeks only the beauty of nature. He mostly wears a dark greenish cloak. Hidden behind his back, are a set of wings, quite useless, since they're a much too small to carry his heavy bones, but a mark of his heritage nonetheless. On most situations, Elavar wouldn't reveal them under any circumstances, not out of shame but rather to avoid questions. He has marks representing nature tattooed on his arms to show his devotion to Mielikki.

Background: Elavar comes from a family that has been devoted to Mielikki for generations. His parent dead, he is the last remaining of his druidic bloodline, except for a couple distant cousins. He lives alone in a forest and prefers to be left alone. As for his celestial blood, he claims an astral deva is his ancestor, and claims to have seen her once or twice in dreams. Because of his solitary nature, he olny meets others in the traditional druidic rites.

I think youve bumped into this one before

Name: Taiden (ty-den)

Age: 40

Sex: Male

Race: Rayapar

Class: Warrior

Alignment: Neutral

Element: Wind

Appearance: Taiden is about eight feet tall with bony ridges above his eyes and a line of spikes on top of his otherwise bald head. Plus he has two little bony spikes on the sharp curve of his jaws. His eyes are a shifting array of colors but usually a soulless black and the mark under the shelf of his jaw looks suspiciously like a prison brand but not from Arcalla. He has shackle marks on his ankles. He was of the few in his family born with wings. These usually remained unobtrusivly tucked behind his back under his cloak. His skin is leathry, peppely and brown.

Armor: The Reapers Image- This cloak and armor set is indeed a beutiful piece of work. The plate
mail is underlained by scale mail and a leather sheath between each layer. The whole metal work is made of lightened mythril and inlaid with cobalt. The cloak is black and seems almost as if it has been worn for millenia. Incredibly shaggy and light, it flutters in the lightest gust and acctually lifts in the wind. There are holes for his wings in the back of the armor. A magical enchantment upon it lets it regenerate but incredibly slowly, making that aspect useless in war. take about a day to completely repair.

Weapons: Judgement Day- a four foot foot long by one and a half foot wide claymore built of incredibly tough, but incredibly light metal. It glows yellowish around the edges of the blade during lightning storms. Theres a strange weaving fillagree of gold near the crown shaped hilt. The two foot, leather wrapped, handle is capped with a small saphire pommel. The blade is sheathed under Taiden's cloak between his wings. Taiden is a master with this weapon.

The Chained Twins- Twin three fot long blades linged by a four foot retractable chain. These can be sepparated and used as separate weapons and lengthened and shortened (the distance between the knives) as needed. Taidens pretty good with these too.

Skills:

Non-Combat:

Intimidation- Taidens a fright to look at and even Rayapar hunters have feared him.

Strength- Taiden worked so long as a slave in an overseas mine, he has been known to shatter some of the weaker sword known in the world

Rebound- Taiden has amazing control over his body and can bounce up from the ground despite his heavy gear.

Senses of the paranoid- Taiden spent so much time as a paranoid slave that his senses became heightened.

Combat:

Swordsman ship- Taiden is an excellent bladesman and can use any edged weapon like his own arms.

Hand to hand- Trained in the arts of Black Grudge, Taiden can incapcitate, kill, maim, or pulverize any opponent unarmed. Limited by his average agility.

Speed boost- This lasts for about a minit without drain. Taiden gets pretty fast, but it tires him quickly once hes past his minit. It can incapacitate him after five minits straight. And No its not his focus

Bonecrush- Taiden has smashed boulders with hammers for most of his young life and retained his strength. Killing Brui, Ogers, Eants, etc. is quite easy with this nifty trick. But its not accurate with smaller critters like humans or Itatchi

Drill- Taiden learned this under vigilance of his many tutors in the slave pits. This can skewer a Brui. Again inacurrate

Wall run- Taiden can run on walls for short periods of time. not very long, maybe thirty seconds with a tail wind.

Chain guide- Using his chained twins, Taiden can almost guarantee a hit, but it leaves at worse a wound to the muscle on a human arm.this might give a brui a hair cut.

Heavy swat- Using the flat of his sword, Taiden can stun foes if not give them a concussion. Another large creature hitter.

Personality: Taiden is a quiet beast. He doesnt like voicing his opinion or talking. He will
lead, but only grudgingly and almost poorly. But when you get him to talk to you, he is warm and freindly, betraying his appearance. He avoids aquilar like the plague and has a strong disdain for ogres and other large creatures.

Weaknesses: Taiden is horribly weak against most magicks except dark( because of his armor and weapons) and thunder (because of his element). Besides this, when forced to lead, he often makes mistakes and leads those under him into traps and horrible circumstances. He loves humans and is reluctant to hurt them.

Past:Taiden was born with a mental disorder that made him extremely paranoid. Captured at age three from his home in an arcalla port, he was enslaved by Nightwalkers, plaintouched beasts from across the seas. These evil slouching horrors enslaved many a class and race. Warriors, mages, necromancers. Humans, Rayapars, ogres. While enslaved in pit mines, he met a small group of freinds who were planning a revolt. A warrior, a mage, a necromancer and a swordsman especially. He trained under these men, using stone weapons and became quite good at using heavy and light edged weapons. The mage and necromancer tried to help him, but the best they could do was awaken the power to change his eye color making him more intimidating. Eventually the miners revolted and Taiden fled back to his home. He arrived in time to find his family dieing under the persecution of Eants who didnt like loggers. He was given his fathers armor and weapons, even though his father had died years ago. He tried but could not stop his homes destruction. After his village was destroyed, he flew around doing odd jobs and grunt work until he found a shaman who could cure his paranoia and has worked as a mercenary ever since. He leads a solitary life and spends little time in one place.

Extras: The Reapers Image- This armor was worn by one of the evilest rayapars ever born. Taiden's

father slaughtered the creature and took his armor and weapons. These evil trinkets are imbued with dark power and as such, are resistant to any form of evil magic.

Focus- Warrior ability. Everything seems slower to Taiden. Draining but it works well with speed boost.

Black_Plague
04/09/2005 10:56 PM

sorry my bios are so friggin long but they come from structured roleplay and im reluctant to clip them.


Name: Orion Ariast

Age: 29

Sex: Male

Race: Human

Class: Beserker

Alignment: Pure evil

Element: Beta

Appearance: 6'0, and thin. He used to be rather small but he now is heavily muscled. His black hair has been braided and hangs down to his shoulders. He wears a black leather tunic under his blackened armor. His armor seems to be a casual fit and is made of a strange elvish metal. His boots are really more leather straps with metal toe and heel plates. His gloves are segmented and end in barbed claws. They are made of the same metal as his boots, helmet and armor. His helmet is shaped like a jackal's head and has rubies crusted around the eyes, so his eyes seem to glow red.

Weapons: Major- The Black Reaver: A two handed black flamberge with a diamond edge around the body of the blade. The blade is 4 feet long and is engraved with the sign of his clan. The pommel of the sword, wich is a large saphire shaped like a flame, glows when he is raging.

Minor- 9 small silver spearheads he had lightened and the now serve as excellent throwing weaons.

Minor- a foot long dagger with barbs up and down the blade. It has been poisoned with magic and will always inject a lethal venom when it contacts flesh.

Armor: He wears a leather shirt under Strong black metal armor. This metal is impervious to heat and was a relic from his empire.

Accesories: A ring with a smal green stone imbedded in it. He carries the shards of a scepter in his bags.

Skills: Pyrokinesis- God i love fire. Need i go into details?
Prescence- Orion can stare down lesser minds.
Agility- Orion is incredibly agile and can ablance on really thin stuff even if he's running.
Vigilance- Orion sleeps with one eye open, misses very little and always has a good idea of where his enemies and allies are during a fight.

Rages: Rage of the Unformed(just cause i like the name)- Orion becomes really pissed for some reason and then gets really fast. He can move his sword like a katana (instead of like a short sword) and can strike with the speed of a snake.

Rage of the Exiles- Orion suddenly begins destroying anything in his reach and will completely shred anyone (figuratively) in the reach of his sword. He will hit again and again and again until his target is in little pieces. He will move mountains to get to his target.

Rage of the Condemned- Orion has only used this rage once in his life. This rage enables Orion to live through mortal wounds and completely ignore ANYTHING threatening which he never does. He only focuses on removing every limb on his opponents body. During this rage, Orion swells and his armor becomes too tight for him. His sword seems to light on fire and his eyes begin to acctually
glow instead of seeming to. He will walk through anyone between him and his target mainly because he cant see them. Weapons dont phase him and he will spew anger from every pore.

History: Orion's great grand father was the cause of the hundred year war and Orion was the the cause of it's end. Orion grew up in the middle of the war between the clans of North Cenland. His father became a general at an early age. He met a beautiful woman and Orion Ariast was born. He rapidly rose through the ranks of his fathers armies, which quickly became the scourge of Cenland, raiding outside of the northern boundaries. A noble in southern Cenland saw this and sent his top assasin to murder the leaders of the Norven clan. Orion awoke to find a man standing over him with a bloody dagger and saw in a flash his parents murdered corpses. He truly lost his temper for the first time in his life, putting his fist through the man's head. He took control of the Norven's army and began uniting the clans. His newly founded Empire soon spread out of Cenland and he bagan to destroy endless acres of country to gain power. After his armies took Antioch, a wizard he had hired helped him awaken what little magical power he had. The ability to control fire. He met his wife after the final conquest of Antioch's capital. But history was doomed to repeat itself and an assasin was sent. This assasin killed Orion's wife and daughter. ButOrion awoke and so did his rage. He used his rage of the unformed for the first time and used the assasin's sword The Black Reaver, to tear the poor guy apart. He declared war on the world and consulted a newly acquired soothsayer to find his destiny. What he saw drove him mad and unlocked the ability to summon his rages (all two of em) at will. What he saw was himself wandering through a wasteland, alone and exiled. He began destroying empire after empire in his lust for the power to change the future. Eventually his armies were laid waste and his citadel was seiged. He killed endless enemy soldiers and was neverhteless, captured. He was held trial at a court where he was charged for crimes against humanity. He was condemned to death and he saw part of his future yet again. He exploded in rage. he destroyed anyone living in the citadel and left for a deifferent continent. He raids villages alone, destroying everyone and using his power over fire to burn the remains of the villages. He is known as Ari the Plague. Or Ari for short. Mothers use his name tofrighten their children, until he strikes their home.

Weaknesses: Magnetism, holy spells and wet climates.

04/11/2005 3:47 PM

Can I join? Here's my character, in any case. (jeez black plague, are there any rps you AREN'T in??? I dont wanna seem like im following you, but you're in all of the good ones!)

Name:Sylvanus Windrunner

Age:25

Sex:female

Race: Elf

Class:Archer

Alignment:Neutral

She uses spells of the wind, but she doesn't really have an alignment with any element

Appearance:5'9", lean. She has light blue hair, matching her skin color. Her eyes are a misty black, with a small line of stones on the top of her left eye, almost like a piercing, but they were put there magically. She wears very light clothes, shades of green and brown mostly. She wears a short sleeved shirt and a short skirt-like clothing. She usually just carries her bow in hand, to be ready, but if she is at leisure, she will carry it over her shoulder. She has a quiver with seemingly endless numbers of arrows inside it.

Weapons: Bow and arrows- the arrows are magical, and can fly in the direction of the wind only. Since she can control the winds' direction, she needs only to shoot an arrow, and direct it from there. She also has two small daggers in her boot legs, as a backup device.

Armor: thick, yet lightweight leather hide

Items:A small gem on her shirt. The God gave it to her, it lets her control wind, to a point; Arrow making materials; shivas - a light cookie that wont break unless you bite into it. one cookie can fill almost anyone up! :D

Skills:miscellaneous wind spells: She can control wind to a point, other things branch off from that ie: she can blow people away and stuff...; arrow charge: she can shoot an arrow with such force that it can go straight through her first target into the next, with almost no limitations on how hard the first target is.

History: Raised by elves, she was given as a sacrifice to a God. Instead of killing her as the God usually would, he took a liking to her. He gave her the powers of the wind in the form of a small gem, and she used them to destroy those who had tried to kill her. Feeling such regret, she now lives a life helping others when possible, but if you make her mad, that fury from years ago might just resurface...

weakness: anything really heavy. She also cant stand being inside buildings for too long. (she cant use her wind power indoors.)

p.s. sorry it was written poorly, im kinda tired, and didn't feel like putting much effort into it. My roleplaying WILL be better, though, so dont judge me on this.

Class:Assassin

Alignment:Neutral

Element:Wind


In the Forgotten Realms, assassins are of evil alignment. Also, the Forgotten Realms does not have "elements" but magic.



Armor: None, she relies on her agility to save her from harm.


One hit from a powerful enemy could spell your doom. I would at least suggest leather if you plan on any melee.

I don't really want "god touched" characters as this could be used to your advantage. While you may worship a diety, there is no "wind god" in the Forgotten Realms.

*I don't mean to seem like an ass but I want this RP to work out. If you need help, drop me an e-mail.

blue_raven5
04/11/2005 5:13 PM

Yeah, sorry about those things. I don't know the rules to this, I usually stick to the dragonlance. I'd be more than happy to change those things, but I could've sworn I changed that assassin thing... Oh well. Yeah, I totally understand that god touched thing. What I meant by that was that he trained her. The gem that I said that no one knows what it does but her - that allows her to control the wind. Just to clear things up. If you still want me to change it, thats ok, but I just wanted to let you know that first.

Exile
04/11/2005 5:27 PM

I suppose the gem is fine but being trained by a god is still a bit... unfair. When you think about it, how many people have actually met the gods, aside from a cleric or other such class getting the occasional vision.

If you want some help or ideas, I would be more than willing as I want you to play. Have you decided on a class?

blue_raven5
04/11/2005 5:36 PM

Ok, heres my idea. She was forced by her dishonorable family to train under those who worshiped the gods, in an attempt to bring honor back. She was very agile, so they gave her training under the wind's rule. After many years, she became what they had thought was a prophet, so they gave this to her as a gift. She lost control and destroyed the village (im going for an evil past event) and NOW she tries to be nice and help people and stuff.

I just chose the simple archer class.

If any of this doesn't work, im out of ideas and would like your help on whatever you find still doesn't work.

04/11/2005 5:47 PM

Good idea but let's make it a bit simpler.


train under those who worshiped the gods


This would make her a monk.


prophet


You’re still thinking in the "celebrity" type of character.


She lost control and destroyed the village


Very celebrity like. This would put you up there with the hero's of the land (Drizzt Do'Urden).


I just chose the simple archer class.


Then I suggest Ranger. I'll let you keep the ability to manipulate wind because that is pretty inventive. However, if you start going crazy and lifting people off the ground and chucking them into a nearby fire, I will have to intervene.

I'm not trying to pick on you are anything. ;)

Right, she wasn't ACTUALLY a prophet, just agile and...stuff...

Very celebrity like. This would put you up there with the hero's of the land (Drizzt Do'Urden).


I don't understand this, but I just meant that the stone contained too much power, and a lot of it escaped. That's why she can control it now.

p.s. I like the drizzt!

I like the ranger idea, but I never knew this was so in-depth... man... anyways, I will be very conservative with my powers, except in some extreme situation or something, and I won't powergame, or whatever its called. It's just like knocking people over, moving light things, stuff like that. I don't actually want a lot of power, makes my character lose some of her "quietness" that I like to incorporate in a lot of my characters.

Exile
04/11/2005 6:26 PM


but I never knew this was so in-depth


*Laughs*

I'm just trying to help you out and get you to realize a few things. I was hoping it could help you in the future also.

So... your a ranger with an enchanted necklace? That is fine. I don't really care about backgrounds, you can make it up as you go along. :D

If your character destroyed an entire village, they would be pretty well known, which is not what I want. I only want average renown characters.

Ah, I see. Ok then, she only destroyed downtown. =)

just kidding, but uhh.... then lets say she was supposed to try and restore its power, and thats what shes been up to since she left. She needs to find some sort of powerful relic, and she needs to then suck its power into the stone.

By the way, I really appreciate the help. I don't like to sound like an idiot, most of the time at least.

That will work quite nicely. You could even say it is some sort of heirloom or something along those lines (which would explain how she got her hands on such a powerful item). :D

No problem. If you have any more questions, I'm here. :)


I wonder what happened to The Bard and Damien... if they don't show up anytime soon I'll have to get the story rolling, and let them enter later on. I know you guys don't want to sit in a tavern for a few days. ;)

Hi there Exile and co! I was just wondering if you had room for another character. I cant join in just yet tho because Im about to move house and will lose my internet connection for a while and would'nt want to keep you all waiting. Just thought Id give you a bit of notice so you could maybe prepare for another character. Im fairly clued up with the whole FR theme but new to PBP RPG's. I can be versatile with my character but was thinking of someting like this;
Name: Flark
Race:Human
Class:Fighter
Age:26
Alignment: Chaotic Good

Equipment: Chainmail, Cloak, Halberd, Short Sword, Dagger

Background: An Ex-Soldier turned mercenary

Appearance: tall, athletic build, dark hair

I'll post again when I'm ready to start so you can try and fit me in when you can if thats ok. If you don't want me to join in I understand, just say so. If you need to know more about my character or want me to change something just say so. Cheers.

Ok. Here's the situation; I move house either this weekend or next. Once I've moved it'll take about a week for my internet server to set up again. (I didn't realise this until today).

Like I said, I'll post in the OOC once Im ready and if it's still okay I'll join in. If you don't want me to join in just say, I understand.

Cheers again.

Sylvanus Windrunner

Thats a main character from warcraft 3 and world of warcraft...

Flark
05/10/2005 10:49 AM

blue_raven. You refer to your character as Sylvanus at the start of the RP (your third post I think). Then later refer to her as Katra? If Im missing something here just say so. If this is a mistake then you really should edit it to clarify the situation. Cheers.

Flark
05/27/2005 5:51 AM

Bard. Since Exile seems to have taken his name quite literally, I think it's only fair to leave the crows course of action to you. Since the crow was originally your creation, if you want to keep your 'familiar', just have him fly back to you.

Any objections?

Anyone know where Exile has gone?

Anyone know the procedure when the DM/GM disappears?

I think we need to communicate in the OOC more.

Exile
05/28/2005 5:20 PM

Sorry, had to take some time off.



Anyone know the procedure when the DM/GM disappears?


Be back in a week.

As for the crow... it is The Bard's familiar. Therefore, I can't see it choosing anyone besides The Bard's character.

You guys can keep interacting while I am gone (Still... sorry about that) or just wait for my return. Again, I apologize for my absence.

blue_raven5
05/30/2005 8:22 AM

Flark, that was totally my mistake.. It's still Sylvanus. I must not have been paying attention. I will change it. Also, I think that bard should choose for the crow as well.

Iorlas

Can you PLEASE go back over the whole thread and edit your name to whichever you like, then stick with it. Cheers.

Exile
06/08/2005 1:57 PM

Yeah... that'd be great if you could. If not... there may be consequences. To me, it is saying you don't want to be in the thread since you can't even remember your characters name!

Understable. I have been under a lotta pressure lately, what with finals in school, a big award ceremony coming up with a group im in, which i have to mostly organize, and several other things. It's not that I dont wanna be in here, things are just sorta starting to blur together, if you know what I mean. Im gonna back out for a while until things settle down, by then I should have names staight, less responsibilities, and a lot more time to write. Once again, sorry about the problems, It's definately supposed to be Sylvanus, I'm just very busy right now. I will change it for ya. Later.

It's been fun, see you soon.

Good question. It's on the road to Miribar. I'll try to clarify things like that in the future.

Flark

Exile
07/14/2005 6:22 PM

Flark's character, Flark, was given a task by Bogern to go find and escort his serving girl, Jary, from Miribar back to the inn. On the way, Flark encountered a wrecked coach, the same one that had briefly stopped at the inn. He traveled with the dwarf Myrol and his companion Samuel, the two who had had been using the coach, the rest of the way to Miribar. Upon entering the mining city, Samuel led him to a ranger hideaway inside of Miribar where he was rudely sent away by an older ranger. Now, he is looking for Jary so he can complete his mission and return her to Bogern. There are also rumors of bandits hiding in the Lurkwood.

I posted a char on here earlier and would like to get involved. Would someone like to catch me up....pretty please?

Okay Damien, I'll try to cover what's happend so far. I'm sure the others will point out if I miss anything important.

We're in Bogern's Inn, somewhere near Icewind Dale, about a days ride from Miribar. There has been dreadful weather and heavy snowfall for several days now.

Before the weather got bad, Bogern's serving girl, Jary, went off to get supplies from Miribar. She did not return, so Bogern payed my character, a Mercenary to find her and return her safely.

On the way, I met a couple of Rangers who were also on their way to Miribar. I travelled with them and they told me rumours of a large group of organised Bandits operating in the area.

In Miribar, I recieved a strange note from some shady characters telling me to meet someone in Waterdeep.

After finding Jary, I returned her safely back to the Inn. There was no sign of bandit activity on either journey, possibly because of the weather.

While I was away, a man visited the Inn, telling Bogern about his village (Greyrock) being burnt to the ground. The man believed it was caused by a Dragon, although Bogern seemed to doubt this and believe it was most probably the bandits.

Another possibility is that Orion, who has some strange 'Pyrokinesis' and 'beserker' abilities may have caused Greyrock's demise. Unfortunately it seems he cannot remember much after one of these episodes, so he is keen to find out what happened for himself.

Orion and myself have agreed to travel to Greyrock (it's on the way to Waterdeep I believe) to find out more. We are currently sleeping and will set off at first light.

Exile
07/25/2005 9:46 AM

Damien,

I can get you in the thread right now if you would like. You may meet up with Flark and Orion on their way to Greyrock or any other idea you have you can PM me and we'll get it set up.

-Exile

Flark
07/30/2005 7:52 AM

Exile, any idea where you want to take things from now?

Is anything due to happen on the way to Greyrock, and roughly how long should it take us to get there?

I'm not really sure what to do for the next post? Would you like to take over for the journey?

Exile
07/31/2005 6:48 PM

Sorry, I was out of town. You guys can decide. Either skip to near Greyrock, where I will take over, or you can have an adventure or two on the way. The journey should take about two or three days.

Exile
08/01/2005 1:17 AM

My recent post with the deer puts you guys in the Kryptgarden Forest, over half way to Greyrock. About a half day to a days march following the base of the Sword Mountains should put you in Greyrock.

The_Bard
08/02/2005 11:27 AM

08/07/2005 12:41 PM

hey i was invited to join this thread and have drawn up a character, below so if you're still looking for more role players and like my character then i'll join, i just hope she's not too like any of those that are already involved. Also i hope i got the age right, i want her to look in her late twenties.

Name = Elyana Darnell
Age = 137
Race = Elf
Class = Assassin
Alignment = Evil

Appearance and items = Elyana has cold ice blue eyes and long white blond hair which is tied back in the typical Elvin fashion. She also has several faded scars across her back and upper section of her arms. Her face is pale and flawless except for a scar diagonally across her right eye. Her tall slender build and pointed ears betray her Elvin heritage.

Elyana is normally clad entirely in black, with a long black cloak as it enables her to blend into the shadows better, however she does wear the occasional red or blue piece of clothing beneath her cloak. Her clothing usually consists of a shirt, breeches with a belt where she secures several poisons and a poisoned dagger and long knee length black boots in which two more daggers are hidden. She also carries twin blades which are secured on her back, beneath her cloak with just the hilts sticking out. Though in general Elyana prefers to use her poisons or poisoned dagger to carry out her killings she is trained with both her blades and a bow and arrow. She also carries a vial on a chord around her neck which contains poison encase she is ever captured.

History = Elyana remembers almost nothing of her childhood. At the age of eighty she became apprentice to Nathaniel Mordecai who taught her the ways of the assassin. She studied under him for thirty five years till his death, twenty two years ago. She then spent this time doing contract kills for the rich however, Elyana was very particular about the assassinations she would accept and many were refused.

08/22/2005 12:29 AM

Hello! I've had the story summed up to me and was wondering if there was any feasible way I could be introduced to the RP. As follows is my character description:

Name: Hansel Griffonclaw
Age: 23
Race: Human
Class: Alchemist
Alignment: Chaotic Good

Appearance and Items: Hensel isn't a handsome young fellow, not being one to concentrate on such minorities. This intelligent warrior spends his time in a dark room errupting with the sounds gurglings, cracks and bangs that linger through smoke and eerie glows. Hansel is and Alchemist, a warrior who fights, not with strength or skill but, with his utter brilliance. You will find him on a scene with a large sack filled with ingredients, a belt armed with test tubes, bottles and corcks. He has bags straped to this belt containing powders and rags and to top off his deadly arsenal, a short but trusty hand axe he uses in the few times he encounters an event of melee. Hansels weapon of choice, the Moltov Cocktail.

I've had the story summed up to me

Summed up? By who you ask? By the Bard of course!

Let me present my friend: Crazed. Crazed everyone, everyone, Crazed. He's new to FreeForm Roleplaying but he's got potential, and he's read a couple Forgotten Realms books. Exile, any chance he can join with Orion dying on us and all that? I'll find a way to stick him in the story without changing much if it's possible.

Crazed

Ay, you can't present me as an item! I'm not your possesion, you never bought me at some kind of sick pawn shop- Oh, wait...scratch that.

Flark
08/22/2005 4:20 AM

Hello Crazed. I believe we've already met quite briefly. Welcome to the RP, I'm sure Exile will approve since you are a friend of the Bard.

I should probably state now that tomorrow I'm going on vacation for a week. Hence the reason I've sent my character off to Waterdeep on his own. I'll try to bring my character back into the RP once I get back. See you all again soon.

Exile
08/22/2005 3:34 PM

Sure, welcome to the forums Crazed.

I guess the two of you (The Bard and yourself) can team up with Damien until Flark returns.

Hey guys, one problem...

What it is to Burn is turning into a Dragon Ball Z episode. Remember... This is the Forgotten Realms and the people are mostly human. Now I know that your characters are a bit more powerful than the average adventurer but it's not going that well with the setting.

I have been busy so I let you guys take over the majority of the thread, but I am still around, reading everything.

I'll stop running when Orion here stop creating massive fires with a moment's thought! Sorry 'bout that Exile; I'll keep my character from doing anything too flashy.

Have you read Spellfire? That was just the first one of the series too. :P

Mind if I ask about it?

By Ed Greenwood, creator of Forgotten Realms (CANADIAN! EH!) Main character: Shandril is a kitchen maid who turns out to have the power of Spellfire, the pure essence of magic, which puts quite a few powerful forces of the realms against her (to use her power for their own purposes). I don't wanna give away too much but I believe the destruction totals up to: an army of Cultists, an undead dragon, and a whole freaking mountain! Good read, but i prefer the Dark Elf Trilogy.

Thanks Bard. Okay, I've made my comeback. I've had to use a bit of initiative since this small time skip isn't enough for my character to have convincingly gone to Waterdeep and back, and carried out his little engagement. I hope you don't mind me using Myrol like that Exile, but I couldn't think of any other way.

Flark
09/21/2005 1:30 PM

Guys, I'm not wanting to tread on any toes, but can we try 'n keep OOC talk in the OOC. That's what it's there for, afterall.

Blue_raven; I was in fact refering to Crazed's character when I asked who the person was since Hansel is the only character that Flark hasn't met. I'm obviously already acquainted with Orion, as you should know.

Bard, Crazed; I wasn't going to say anything, but since Damien has brought it up, I'm in agreement with him about the gasoline. And the lighter. I think oil and a tinder box or flints would have been more appropriate.


I'll hold back with my post to see if you guys want to do any editing. :P

The_Bard
09/21/2005 5:19 PM


Bard, Crazed; I wasn't going to say anything, but since Damien has brought it up, I'm in agreement with him about the gasoline.

I edited my post.

:S I'm sorry there seems to have been some misunderstanings; I guess my post wasn't nearly detailed enough. First of all, if you refer back to my post, you'll find that Elevar and Orion are the only ones tied up and soaked in oil. Secondly, the oil was subtly referring to Hansel. Therefore Sylvanus, Lucan, and Hansel would have been the ones to tie us up in confusion about the whole conflict. Yes, this would be controlling your characters, but that's why asked before I went ahead with the changeover, and since no one was posting... Oh well, whatever, I guess now we should just let the story unfold however it may.

Flark
09/22/2005 9:55 AM

Ah right, that would have made much more sense.

Now I also see that Blue_Raven has edited her rope escape post. I'll edit my post too, so that we can go with your original idea, Bard.

Blue_Raven; you'll still need to edit your last post about 'Orion, a master of flames'.


We'll get there in the end, eh?

Na, you're right, he's not here...

Well, we've managed for quite a 'WHILE' without him, so I suppose we'll just have to manage a little 'WHILE' longer.

I guess we just send Myrol off to find the other Rangers and just keep our fingers crossed that he turns up eventually.

While we're on the subject of missing people, Black_Plague has also disappeared, while Blue_Raven appears to have given up on this particular RP.

I guess it's just down to us, Damien and Crazed.

Sorry if it seems like I'm forcing my plan on you guys, but I fear that if we don't get the RP moving again soon more people are going to lose interest. Unless Exile shows up soon, I'm all for us burning Greyrock to the ground. Afterall, it would be a fitting ending for this approprately named RP.

Any major objections?

Also, can we do a roll call? Who have we still got with us?

Aye, I'm here. As for the idea, I'm always for fire. I hope something highly dramatic happens though, it'd be sad for this great RP to end with a simple bonfire. Also, i assume we are using Black Plague's abilities.

Na, that would be TOO easy. Can't Crazed's character Hansel knock us up some explosive flamable potions. We could sneak inside, 'Guy Fawkes' style and blow them up!

Hi there Iorlas, in case you hadn't noticed - Exile seems to have disappeared, so we're continuing without him for the moment. Tho, I'm sure everyone will be happy for you to resume your character. The more the merrier I say. Welcome back. :)

Lol im sure reading all this would take time so a brief explanation of were everbody is and whats the current situation should solve that.*Laughs*

[i]I'm sorry, Flark is unable to answer the call right now, if you'd like to leave a message, please speak after the tone...[/i] *beep*...

Ha ha, even tho I'm sure that had you fooled, I'm too much of a nice guy to pretend I'm not here... ;)


Okay, I'm not sure where to begin, so I'll start from the beginning...

The RP began at Bogern's Inn, which is somewhere near Icewind Dale, about a days ride from Miribar. There was dreadful weather and heavy snowfall for several days.

Before the weather got bad, Bogern's serving girl, Jary, went off to get supplies from Miribar. She did not return, so Bogern hired my character, a Mercenary to find her and return her safely.

On the way, I met couple of Rangers (Samuel and Myrol) who were also on their way to Miribar. I travelled with them and they told me rumours of a large group of organised Bandits operating in the area.

After finding Jary, I returned her safely back to the Inn. There was no sign of any bandit activity on either journey.

While I was away, a man from Greyrock visited the Inn. He man told Bogern that Greyrock had been attacked and the villagers had been burnt.

Our companions ended up travelling to Greyrock, each for their own various reasons, and upon entering the walled village we were attacked by bandits and their drow leader(s).

We managed to flee into the nearby forest, but were tracked and attacked again by a smaller party, of who we managed to defeat thanks to the help of Samuel and the other Rangers who came to our aid.

With the help of the Rangers, we are currently attempting to plan a succesful counter-attack on the bandits at Greyrock, although Sylvanus is currently wounded, Lucan is missing, and Orion is dead.

Elevar is by far the best character.

I'd say you're ready to jump in Iorlas. ^_^

It's a shame that Exile never returned. I always thought he would. Oh well, let's finally wrap this one up once and for all then...

Hey, is this story coming to a close or is it going to be revived?

If it's still going to go on i'd like to jump in. I'm new to the forum but an old school RPer and pretty decent at it at least :) Let me know if you guys plan to keep the story going, i'll post a character and jump in!

Flark
03/15/2006 12:57 PM

Hi Ravenot. :)

I'm not really sure what's going on with this RP. Most of the participants seem to have vanished, and Exile (GM) seems to be taking his name quite literally, lol.

Feel free to join in if you like, you never know, things might pick up again. I'll try to keep things ticking over if you still want to join. :)

Ravenot
03/15/2006 3:26 PM

Hrmm... I think i'm going to wait for a bit for now if we have a GM who's MIA. :( I'll keep an eye on things here though until it's more decided what direction it's going in.

In the meantime, i bumped into the game you're running and posted over there.

I'm still in. Let's hope a few more of the old faces turn up then we can get this moving again.

Im back...If you guys wanna keep this going im game..

Flark
05/19/2006 3:04 AM

I've just about given up on this one I'm afriad. Exile returned, but now he's gone again. I doubt we'll ever truly get this one up and running like it once was. :(

Exile
05/21/2006 6:40 PM

Haha! Never doubt friend! I have returned... only to be off again. Life is busy but I'll be able to devote myself to the site again in about three weeks. If interest is still here... perhaps we can restore this story to its former glory?

Flark
05/22/2006 1:23 AM

Ha! Yes, having the GM back in the midst certainly does change things. I'll be more than happy to give this another go once you return. :)

The_Bard
06/10/2006 1:01 PM

*Yawn* I'm back. It's been awfully long, but if you guys are still around I'd love to bring back this RP. I might be off for a couple weeks or so for exams, bu other than that, I'm fully intent on coming back.

Flark
06/11/2006 8:45 AM

It's good to hear from you Bard. As always I'm still around, and I look forward to seeing you back here. Good luck with the exams. :)

The_Bard
06/11/2006 5:17 PM

How 'bout it then, who's in? And do we keep going where left off? I assume Exile will need some filling in if he's interested...

Flark
06/12/2006 7:50 AM

Exile seemed happy enough to pick things up again, I think. I don't know if he's up to date with the RP, but yeah, we can always fill him in if necessary. If you want to start posting now go for it, unless you want to give it a few days and see if anyone else turns up?

Exile
06/13/2006 1:54 PM

I do not know what has been going on. Perhaps you two could finish this off or find a point at which it could conveniently end and we start up a new thread continuing the story? Oh, and I may have someone who may wish to join.

06/19/2006 3:01 PM

First things first, sorry to kinda barge into the story... I've never rp'd on the web so I'm begging to be forgiven for the bad ettiquette. I am TOTALLY obsessed with Forgotten realms, (but not on a fanatical level...) so I thought my prescence could at least be best here of all places, where I'd understand the atmosphere. Please allow me to rp here and thank you... Here's my char sheet (please change anything you deem as 'too much' or feel free to help clarify my explanations) and I apologize if I over-explain, bad habit... please take it easy on me ... : P

Name: Reivien Innines T'leydras III*
Race: Half-elf (moon elf)
Class: fighter-mage **
Diety: Azuth/Mystra
Age: roughly35-40
Alignment: Unlawful Neutral

*(aka "Rei" or reknowned in certain circles as "Reave the Lad" but only those farmiliar with the Hook Coast would recognize this)
**(closer to a paladin but my spells aren't divine, so...you tell me who I am...lol)

Appearance: Rei has managed to maintain a great deal of his father's moon elven appearance however the terms of his birth were unnatural and it shows. With eyes of two separate colors (blue and brown), a missing ring and middle finger on the left hand (which often complicates more difficult spellcasting),abnormally pale skin even for a moon elf, and severe allergies that reduce his sustanance to nothing but bread and water and cause skin color changes in direct sunlight. Having been raised to be a swordsman he is very fit and agile, however his years as a mage in former Shadowdale have softened the edges of his once sculpted body.

Armor/clothing: Rei always wears a large spiked gauntlet over his deformed hand and a set of plate steel pauldrons and greaves. Otherwise, loose, flowing cloaks of two separate colors cover the light leather breastplate and long baggy breeches he so enjoys wearing. ( he has recently lost his gauntlet and plate armors)

Skills: general knowledge of basic cantrips, speechcraft, moderate proficiency with a rapier and throwing daggers, knowledge of some minor battle magic and one or two high end destructive magics made VERY hard to cast my his deformity, and minor alchemy.

Brief History: Born dead, and half bred, revived by a Sembian chemist's potion to very severe side effect. Raised along the Hook Coast on his mother's ship until boyhood where a famed student of Mistress Silverhand herself took him into tutelage. Ran away after a year of lessons at 16 to Cormyr in the back of a caravan cart to live in poverty until discovered for his adeptness with words and hired off the streets to be an envoy and exposed to spellcraft. Left on a pilgrimage to former shadowdale and didn't return until his 30th summer. What occured during this time is a mystery to all inclding him. Recently returned to Cormyr and is alone and outcast. Fighting alone against Cormyrian nobility.

Weakness: self-esteem, and emotion are very big issues , otherwise, no weaknesses have been determined because fighting was once avoided.*

*(if you think of good ones, more power to you...)


If you have any questions, comments or objections, I will happily oblige you as best I can.

Hi there. Welcome to the site, and welcome to 'What it is to Burn', probably the oldest RP thread on the site!

If you got my mail I'll probably be repeating a little of what I said, but anyway, it's certainly great to have a new face here. This RP was dead for a long time but we're currently trying to revive it. New players are exactly what we need right now, and what's better than a guy who knows his Forgotten Realms!

As you will have seen, Exile is thread starter and GM, but unfortunately he hasn't been around much of late. If he turns up, great. If not, don't worry as myself and The Bard will try to assist you in any way we can.

It's actually a very good time for you to join is as we were just about switch the direction of play by having our characters get blasted by that catapult. Therefore it won't really be essential for you to read the entire 20 odd pages of previous happenings. Although feel free if you really want to. We're very easy going so you don't need to worry about rules and the likes. Just relax and go with the flow of the story. I hope you enjoy it and stick around. :)

Hi again Exile. There hasn't really been that many major events which you have missed out on. After we first tried to enter Greyrock and ended up fleeing, some of the bandits tracked us and ambushed us in the woods. Fortunately Samuel and his Ranger friends turned up and helped us defeat them. After the victory and the strengthening of our forces, we planned an attack on Greyrock which we are currently acting out.

Flark and Elevar had just entered Greyrock through the hole which Orion created when he melted part of the wall. Unfortunately the bandits had a catapult pre-aimed at the hole and have just blasted us as Rei turned up. I figured if we all become unconscious we can wake up either after the battle is over, or captured somewhere. Either way, it's almost like a fresh start giving you the opportunity to resume your GM duties. :)

By the way, Samuel and the other Ranger NPC's which you created, as well as all of the other inactive player characters are all just outside the outer walls of Greyrock.

Alright, I'm done stupid math exam and am free of its f-ing annoying effects. I have one more left XP and then i'm all done and returning full-on to this RP. Since my character doesn't seem to have been rescued, I'd like to play it as though Elevar was captured; that would I think be the outcome with most potential. Don't really care tho' I'm just eager to get back, your call Exile. I'll start poeting probably thursday or som'n.
