Taken from the interest section:
The basic outline:

My character is a Lycan that has left a Virginia pack that had some members go wild, breaking the ban on eating humans. He has headed north into Vermont where he found a very secluded small time town. The idea was that after his arrival, he finds out that there is a clan living in the town. The goal of the line, in my mind, was for my character to decide whether or not to stay. If so, finding his place in the town (work, home, ect...) and possibly challenging for leadership of the clan.

My primary character:

Logan Richards is 23. He's never had a serious relationship, and despite beeing part of a pack, he tends to be solitary. I'm hoping that if this thread picks up, there will be a character that will be able to change that. Further info., he is just shy of six feet tall, short brown hair, green eyes, and very well built.

I'm not going to make you get Approved, but I don't want a super wolf. If you want an idea for a role to play, I have several.

(I completly killed that from the original. I should have kept it somewhere)

Okay, made my first post. Hope you don't mind, but since you did as for someone to play head-bitch, I figured I'd take that roll with my character. I've got some basic info for you. I'll post the rest when I can find my book with all her info in it. Oh, and if you want, I do have another character I could use in this. Just let me know.

Name: Nikayla, goes by Nikki
Age: 30
Human form: Long, auburn colored hair, blue-green eyes w/flecks of gold, some-what pretty, about 5'7", and weighs approx. 180 lbs.
Lycan form: Mostly auburn colored fur, with streaks of black, white, and grey mixed in, golden colored eyes, with flecks of blue and green mixed in.

I don't have her last name...or her background. That's all in my character journal, I think. Give me some time, and I'll find it for you.

06/08/2005 10:48 AM

here's my character information, do you mind if i'm the healer for the tribe, if not just say and i'll edit.

Name: Lyvia Nakima
Age: 19
Appearance :
•height: 5ft7
•hair/fur: midnight black with blue tips
•eyes: gold with green flecks, rimmed with black
•Markings: tattoo of wolf running down her left forearm and her tattoo of her tribe on her right shoulder. Three scars across her back, (like claw marks)
Weapons: she mainly relies on her Lycan abilities but she also carries a small dagger hidden amongst her clothing, and twin blades which are strapped to her back.
Position: Healer

06/08/2005 11:49 AM

Don't worry about character issues. I won't have a problem unless it's really ludicris. Just keep in mind that it is some what modern.

Something of a thought. You may want to reference to a teacher for the healing arts, seeing as your character [i]is[/i] reletively young.

Being new here, I have only just come across this post, it seems defunct, though if any of the original posters are still interested in bringing it back to life, I would be interested in continueing it as well.

As for a character concept, this is a little off the cuff, but here goes.

Name: Christian Campbell
Age: 43
Height: 5'10"
Hair/Fur: Greying

Christian is an old Lycan, he came to the small village from his homeland of South Africa.
He wandered for over 9 years before finding the village 4 years ago, and has not seen fit to leave as yet. He is quiet and tends to be a reserved with most. When he arrived, the village took his heart, he loved the deep forests where he could roam, and the small town life the village lives. Sometimes it cannot be ascertained what is more important to him, The villagers, village or the pack.
He has no scars or significant marks upon him.
Only notable ability in Christian is his ability to fully transform fully into wolf form, taking on the appearance of a normal, if overly intelligent, and slightly larger wolf.
No real position in pack, as in most small towns, true acceptance takes a long time, weeks, months, even years sometimes, though sometimes his age makes him one some of the pack members have come to for advice at odd times.

Mae had mentioned something about starting back in, but I missed something about her that evendently is serious. Other than that you are welcome to join and I'll talk to Mae about what's going to happen from her end. A small edit though, and maybe I should put something together if I didn't already somewhere else. In general, by my standards of 'lycans' based on a little research, is that they all pretty much turn into a 'normal' yet larger wolf. I'll look into posting everything that I consider standard.

08/11/2005 4:50 PM

Ok, thats fine, keep me up and I'm ready to go whenever. As for normal, I always have the mental image of a lycan in "wolf" form as the hybrid between wolf and man. Not necessarily the classical view of it, but thought I would clarify what his abilities were in those terms, keeps everyone with the same view.

So in this case, his non standard ability would be to become the hybrid I guess.

Anyway, just thinking aloud now. Let me know whats up.

08/13/2005 7:52 PM

You don't have to have a 'non standard ability' really.

~Werewolves as I know them~

This will be what I apply to the thread. Now if there is anything that I miss or that anyone wishes to question, feel free to bring it up. Anything I call them is not a direct reflection of what they are. The truest single word would be metamorphs, but that would encompass a great many things.

There is an general pack feeling among wolves. Whether by choice or by Rite, there is a pack leader. Usually though, the leader would be chosen by the pack. Now any rouge male can challange, but only during certain times. The best terming of this, I found from Klouse's Blood and Chocolate, is the Ordeal. Only called by the elders, it is concidered to be primitave and rarely used.

Now as far as changing goes, they can change whenever, be it partially or fully, but during the three days of a full moon, it becomes necessity. By partially, I refer to growing fangs or claws, or packing on extra muscle. The change is generally painful until it is complete.

When changed, wolf is only a general comparison. At least half again the size of any true wolf, there are also other possible variations. The coat will resemble the hair that is had in human form, for example.

Humans are a forbidden food. However, if one is eaten, it is increadably hard to stop eating them. If a wolf would be found to have been killing, it would be put to death by the pack. Hearts are not the only sustain food, meat in general nourishes.

Death comes from many sorces. While it is harder for a werewolf to die, it does not need to be a silver bullet. Silver is however very fatal. If not taken care of, and even then if too great an amount, it will burn through the blood like an acid and death will follow. However, fire, a broken neck and other things can be just as fatal as they would be to a human.

If I feel there is anything I need to add, or if you have any questions, it will be put here.

09/04/2005 12:23 PM

First, what kind of creature are you trying to represent?

Second, your not paying attention to the time frame. Arrows would only be used for sport hunting and at this point, swords are a very uncommon weapon.

Third, again you are not paying attention, as this takes place on earth, more specifically the United States. As far as I'm aware, there is no kingdom of Ebony.

Lastly, if you were to join, I would prefer that you use proper sentence structure. You know, captilization and all of that.

09/20/2005 4:07 PM

This is my first time role playing as a werewolf. So please inform me if I need to know anything or if I do anything worng. I just don't want to mess up the RP.

Name: Meia Adir
Age: 20
Human Appearance: Long black hair falls to her waist, usually handeled into a long braid with her bangs someimes covering her eyes. Her eyes are a gold color with a red color around her pupil. Her skin is a pale white and she has small x shaped scar across her chest. She has a fairly good figure. A slim body and flexible.
Height: 5'5"
Lycan Appearance: Black with a few sliver steaks here and there. Eyes red with a gold color around her pupil, a small x shaped scar across her chest.

History: Meia had been a lone lycan for quite some time. She never stayed in the same town for fear of becoming to attached to 'normal' people. Meia started to travel at the age of fifteen, when her father and mother finally gave out on her.She finally decided to settle down and now has five years of being a member of this towns clan. She is still a very isolated person, but at times she feels the necesity of someones presence and company.

Occupation: Meia has no occupation in the group. She basically is the one out the group that does a bit of everything. But when not needed she takes care of the group in anyway she can. But her real passion is fighting and arguing, lately she didn't argue that much.

09/27/2005 12:54 PM

Just a couple of notes. I haven't seen CW for a while, and he hasn't replied to the inframail I sent him. I'm thinking about just skipping him for now.

I might bring in another main character to help things flow a little better. Just so you are aware, I would post the second character separatly in most cases. It's just easier for me that way unless there is a confrontation between the two.

Lastly, for Mae. There is nothing here about Mikel. Is he not going to be a primary character? Or is it just going to be a development throught the story?

09/27/2005 12:59 PM

He's just a secondary character who decided to spring up when I wrote my first post. He's going to be in and out probably, and, eventually, die.

Also, about CW, if you don't think he's going to continue with this, and you do come up with another character, we can always delete his post, and have me alter my posts, using the new character's name instead of CW's old character.

[Edited by Aeramae on Tuesday, September 27, 2005 1:02 PM]

09/27/2005 7:45 PM

I'm going to give him a couple more days, but only a couple because I havn't even seen him signed in recently. There is no way to insert a post if his were deleted is there? Concidering this is only starting, I'm not sure about whether or not the small holes would make any issues with more people coming in. I would kind of like to see two or three more.

I'll make a final decision on things before friday.

09/29/2005 8:37 PM

Soul dear, not to be rude, but please try to edit you posts at least a little before you submit them. I understand a few spelling and grammer errors, but your post was filled with mixed up letters. It's just a pet peeve.

10/01/2005 1:57 PM

Oh, I sorry so sory about that. I was in a hurry and didn't really check for errors. But no worries, I undersatnd and I already corrected it. ^_^

10/03/2005 10:11 AM

Just so no one gets mad at me, I was going to let you go next Mae. It should give me more to respond to at one time.

10/03/2005 3:33 PM

Okay, well...I just posted, so I guess it's your turn again.

10/03/2005 10:56 PM

This is already shaping up to include plenty of drama.

Just to update the CW situation, now that Meia has left the bar, it leaves the opening for Christian's death. If he manages to reappear before it happens, so be it. It may very well be mentioned in my next post though, depending on the events that transpire. He won't be found untill the morning though, so I may be nice and wait untill then. Maybe I shouldn't mention this, but it will be up to what you post, Mae, as to whether or not Logan is known to be innocent or not. Of course, Nikki may not want the pack to know that she spent the night with him if she does. It's up to you where we go next.

I will be playing the character that is the killer if it comes to that already. It would certainly get things jumping in that regard, but I would have liked a little more developement first.

10/07/2005 4:25 PM

Okay, that sounds pretty good to me. But, uh, you still need to make posts before Christian dies.

[Edited by Aeramae on Saturday, October 8, 2005 3:25 PM]

10/07/2005 9:08 PM

That accually sounds good, but I would delete that post or else you are giving away the suprise.

Okay, that sounds pretty good to me. But, uh, you still need to make posts before Christian dies.

Yeah I know. Like I had said, it depended on you. Since you have come into the room, it may be some time before Logan goes out to his bike.

I'm a little confused about what Nikki wants. Are you just looking for more detail, because I sort of gave the story before.

10/08/2005 3:23 PM

She wants as much information about the situation as possible.

10/10/2005 9:17 AM

If you are still recruiting...

[align:centre]THORN [/align]

Thorn appears in his late twenties-early thirties, tall and lean with deep grey eyes that have a predatory gleam, the lycan exudes all that is a predator. His closeness with the bestial side of the lycan nature is enough to cause most normal people unease around him. His movements, the way he stares at things and even his manner scream predator.

Thorn is for want of a better description, the black sheep of the pack. He is a rebel and more than a bit of a loner with some serious leadership issues -but despite this he is unnervingly loyal to his packmates though he would chew through his own arm before he admitted it. Thorn feels his role in the pack is merely muscle, and it is a job that he seems to be entirely suited for. He has little remorse about things that need to be done and a genuine like for conflict with no desire at all to lead.

Before joining Nikki's pack, Thorn came from the north, possibly Canada, but it is a time he never talks of. For his pack mates, his past started the moment he dragged his blood-stained body to the steps of Nikki's bar...

10/10/2005 9:36 AM

Wonderful, we would love to have you.

I'm just working out what all I want to add in my post and you will have it.


Why did you delete your post, Soul.

[Edited by lonewolfe619 on Monday, October 10, 2005 5:42 PM]

10/13/2005 8:28 AM

Are we going to have another AWOL player on our hands?

Oh, btw, I've decided that Mikel is a NPC. Use him any way that you want to.

10/13/2005 10:39 AM

AWOL? I was waiting until the meeting like you guys mentioned in the recruitment thread before I jumped in...


10/13/2005 11:53 AM

Not you friend, OneBeautifulSoul. There were two post by her, but as I was posting the other night, she deleted one and now appears also to be no longer interested. Frankly, I attribute it to the damn thing moving so slow from a lack of players.

10/13/2005 5:28 PM

I am interested in the RP, it's just that I deleted my post because I had other plans for my character. It all seemed like a rant to me. Though I do have to admit that the progrss of this RP is slow, I don't want it to die out eventually.

So I'm just waiting for Nikki and Logan to finish their conversationa dn get things cleared up. In felt my post was not necessary right there and then.

10/13/2005 6:12 PM

I may be alone in this, but I liked your post. It may not have been nessissary, but it added to the sequence in it's own way.

I am glad to see that you are planning on sticking around.

10/14/2005 8:57 AM

I'm just curious how she heard the body collapsing onto the tavern's door.

And Arandur, hun, I wasn't talking about you. If I was, I'd make mention of you being an Aussie before I said anything else, you know that!

10/14/2005 9:10 AM

I'm just put him at the door because she heard the noise. It could have been Christian trying to get in for all I care. If he would have stuck around we wouldn't have this issue, I had another plan entirely.

10/14/2005 9:15 AM

Sorry, what I meant was, how did Meia hear the noise? Nikki sent her home, outside the tavern.

10/14/2005 5:13 PM

Well, Meia is at home. I thought If I added the thud, it could be a way for Thorn to enter. Though the whole 'Christian' thing could fit into it too. Just setting opportunities to get the RP going.

I guess I should haev told you all, instead of posting and confusing all of you like that. Though I am confused. Is the tavern a kind of inn for the lycan or just like a place for the pack to meet and such?

[Edited by OneBeautifulSoul on Friday, October 14, 2005 5:15 PM]

10/14/2005 6:10 PM

I'm thinking, and Mae can back me up or correct me as it's her inn, that we are going somewhat old school about. It's primarily a tavern, but there are upstairs rooms for 'visitors' as opposed to having a separate motel in the town.

The general town concept, which in all the transfers got trimmed down some, is that it's a small 'backwater' town. The sort that if you blink you would miss it, so to speak. It wouldn't really be practical to have a Holiday Inn or something else along those lines.

10/15/2005 5:31 PM

Yeah, it's one of those old taverns with guest rooms above the bar. Although, in what I see in my minds eye, no human has ever stayed there. Most who visit the bar are locals, or people who are just passing through. The bar gives humans a weird vibe, so they don't stay in there for very long.

10/18/2005 12:37 PM

Curiosity. Who's posting next?

10/18/2005 3:53 PM

I suppose either Thorn, if he wantrs to make his entrance or Nikki. Logan did bellow for her did he not?

10/18/2005 8:24 PM

I suppose either Thorn, if he wantrs to make his entrance or Nikki. Logan did bellow for her did he not?

Now could be a good time to bring Thorn in. Or else Soul can post next. I'd like to have someone outside to find out how to get to the law.

[Edited by lonewolfe619 on Wednesday, October 19, 2005 8:24 AM]

10/23/2005 6:42 PM

What do you mean 'to the law'? As in police or so?

10/24/2005 7:34 AM

Read the last post in the rp thread. It's got the answer you need right there OBS.

10/25/2005 5:04 PM

I'll allow your post OBS, but that really wasn't what I ment, especially the part where "he wouldn't move, shocked seeming to over come him." Please don't do that because it's out of my character's character. I only wanted someone to be out there so that I wouldn't have to bring in a one time use character or else create one out of nessessity (I prefer my characters to be created out of desire). Mae had Nikki ask the only person in town that hasn't been in town for over 24 hours to go get the sheriff.

10/26/2005 5:36 PM

"seeming" is the key word there. It didn't mean that you actually were shocked, it was what I was thinking or presumed. I can change that if it bothers you that much and make it clearer. I dunno how else to continue the RP, seing as you and Mae (if that is Nikki) are not posting as much. The RP is going on a fairly slow pace and waitng for any of you to post is making me desprite. Getting the story going is what I want to do, but I dunno how else to do it wiht out of any of your posts...

10/26/2005 6:26 PM

I'm still trying to get other people involved. I guess if it's just going to be the three of us, then it's the three of us. I'll start working on another character awhile and you can feel free to as well. Unless it's just going to get tanked as a result of lack of interest.

10/28/2005 8:44 AM

I'll see about getting Arandur's ass in here to make a post.

12/04/2005 8:25 AM

Sorry about the double, but I am just unwilling to let this thread die. So, I've added a post into the main thread, and am bumping this up. Wolfie, it's your turn to post!

12/08/2005 12:28 PM

Just in case you missed my post (I did see your whole new job post in Hyborian Blood) I'm giving this a little bump. I'm all for keeping this going. I rarely get to use Logan.

01/12/2006 9:41 AM

Are you guys still interested in having people join? I've just recently been able to get back onto the internet and the first thing I'm doing to jumping back into the rpgc. I've got an older lycanthrope that I could weasel into your guys' story somehow. If you guys are interested I'll post his bio and you can tell me what you like/dislike. I won't be able to check or post on weekends however :(

01/12/2006 11:34 AM

Things really slowed down, but Mae wants to keep going and so do I. There was supposed to be a pack meeting tonight (in the thread). Whenever we get there, feel free to jump in. Just post at least some sort of character sheet first.

01/13/2006 7:46 AM

I gotta try and remember his bio, I don't have a saved copy of it anymore. I'll post it later today and find a way into the pack meeting. Fortunately while Lunaris isn't usually very social, shapeshifters are the one weak spot in his heart so he should fit right in once he's established. In this world, as there are obviously "mythical creatures" like lycanthropes, are there others such as angels and demons and whatnot as well?

Also, do you want a history posted with the character sheet? Or just who he is now, and let his history come out in the story where it is appropriate? Since this seems to be a more modern time he's probably about 2,200+ years old by now *grin*, so there might be some gaps and vague descriptions of what he did over a few decades or centuries.

Sorry for all the questions, I just don't like to get into a thread and say something contrary to the story/world and sound like a jerk. As I said earlier, I'll recreate his bio and post it later, and I'll edit what needs to be edited.

01/13/2006 10:29 AM

Sorry for all the questions,

It's not a problem. It's better to ask than to get bitched at for doing something wrong.

In this world, as there are obviously "mythical creatures" like lycanthropes, are there others such as angels and demons and whatnot as well?

This was inteded as a lycanthropic story and I'd like to keep it that way. If I pull other creatures in, I'm getting desprate. I'd probably let it die first.

Also, do you want a history posted with the character sheet? Or just who he is now, and let his history come out in the story where it is appropriate? Since this seems to be a more modern time he's probably about 2,200+ years old by now

I don't need his life story, just a little about him. Keep in mind that you can modify the bio to fit the story without loosing who your character is.

01/15/2006 7:52 AM

If you want, and this would probably make it easier for you to fit your character in, you could make him a part of the pack already. He could be the one that the rest of the pack doesn't like or trust, with the exception being my character. Just an idea.

01/15/2006 10:10 PM

He could be the one that the rest of the pack doesn't like or trust, with the exception being my character

alright that sounds good.

sorry I didn't get back to you guys on friday like I said I would, my partner for my project called me and we had to reschedule our meeting to that day. Anyway, I'm at a friend's house right now, and I'll start re-writing tonight and tomorrow(my school is closed tomorrow so I won't have internet access til tuesday.), then I 'll post it tuesday.

01/17/2006 7:27 AM

Well, it's Tuesday. Get to postin' your character boy! Quick, before............hmm, hold that thought. I need to go think of a good threat.

01/17/2006 4:51 PM

Name: Lunaris Proeliator

Human form: Lunaris stands at 6'2", his muscles are well toned and strong from many years of physical labor and combat, but are not massive or bulgy. He has light stormy blue eyes with small veins of gray, looking almost like a gem that has been cracked. His short, grayish blond hair spikes up and waves slightly when he moves, as if being tousled by a breeze.

Wolf form: Gray fur covers his back and sides, fading gracefully into a
silvery gray on his belly. His eyes remain unchanged from his human form, with the exception that his pupils grow larger.

Hybrid form: Grows several inches in height and his muscles gain bulk, as his body grows fur. The hair on his head shifts into fur, retaining it's
spike, the dark gray running down his back , legs, and arms, the lighter
shade of fur spreading from under his maw and down his chest and stomach.

Personality: Lunaris tends to keep to himself a majority of the time,
finding little comfort in the presence of many people. A leader by birth,
and a warrior by nature, Lunaris does not like to take orders, but has no
problem with requests he believes are reasonable. While his newfound pack is not as dear to him as was his blood clan, he takes all threats to them seriously, and has no qualms with dealing out retribution. This
protectiveness of the clan is mirrored, and even amplified, in his
protection to the few who have managed to get close to his heart.

Historical Synopsis: Lunaris was born in 1972, in a large forest in Europe, as part of a clan that dominated the area, secluded by and large from the human populace. First born son of the clan chief, and alpha male, Lunaris was in line for leadership, for even as a cub, he was on the border of brutal. Never a truly violent being, Lunaris' savagery shines though only in combat, competition, and the hunt. When Lunaris was still only 16, humans had discovered the clan, thinking them savages and cannibals. An army of humans came through, decimating the clan, leaving a barely concious Lunaris as the sole survivor. The lycanthrope ravaged the land of the army, having followed it back to it's base, and became a well known outlaw.

Eventually too many people were looking for him, so Lunaris slipped away on a boat, bound for America.Shortly after his arrival Lunaris stumbled upon a pack of Lycans tucked away in a small American town. The years of killing and running had worn down on Lunaris, and after meeting the alpha male he agreed to stay. Only a few years after Lunaris joined the pack, a new alpha was established, a female who has become his one good friend, drawing Lunaris back to the town more often than before. Lunaris spends most of his time hiking and hunting in the forests and mountains in the region, disappearing for days or weeks at a time. Lunaris still has a flamberge, the symbol of his clan, that he keeps on his wall, a weapon for lost times. During his renagade days he learned to use a gun, adopting a modified Desert Eagle .50 more recently.

It looks alright Dem. I still don't agree to the whole age thing, but it is your character. (it's just not a concept that, in my studies, I've found to apply to lycanthrops)

BTW, did RPGC cut out for anyone earlier? I was writing character when it stopped connecting for a few hours.

You will get used to that.

Sorry about the short post. I really couldn't think of anything else to put in.

01/19/2006 12:16 PM

if you want, I can modify his age for your thread, I don't want him to break the rules of reality. I'll still play him the same, I'll just make sure not to reference anything that falls in his experiences from other threads. How old do lycanthropes live to be in your world?

01/19/2006 12:32 PM

How old do lycanthropes live to be in your world?

At the longest, only between 150-200 years. It comes from a freedom of disease and amazing conditioning.
