Righty ho folks. This has been done countless times, a couple attempts by myself, but I'm wanting this to work this time round. Following on, slightly, from Kalia'a Worlds Beyond, Earth, used to be known as Krynn, has evolved without magic, without the direct interfernece of gods and dragons and the other races of fantasy. Humans have thrived and are extensive..... until now. Millions have died over the passed few years, first Raistlin came to claim the World, but he was defeated, and then the other Gods reappeared. The dark queen brought her armies and her dragons, waking them and unleashing her shrieking hordes once more on the world. With new weapons at her disposal, she has caused death on a massive scale, she has twisted science, used it for deadly and horrific purposes. Before the world as the races knew it was confined to one continent, now the New World as it is today has opened endless possibilties for the dark queen, and and unquenchable thirst to rule over all.

Of course, with the gods of darkness returning, so to have the gods of light, and of neutrility. Three moons now hang in Earths sky at night, a silver, red and black moon, the latter a void of blackess against a dark sky. Magic has returned, Mages are growing in power.... but as always, there is resistance, there is deceit, many religions are rallying against these new gods, believing them all to be evil and corrupt, Satan and God.... simply archetypes for Paladine and Takhisis, but the humans of today, most of them, cannot accept this, mainly because they fear the powerful forces of evil, and of good. Magic weilded in the hands of good and evil Wizards, people have witnessed entire towns fall at the breath of dragons, ancient creatures of red and blue, green, black and white. They fill the skies, roaming and killing as they did before. All over the world they are wriggling their way back into the World, finding old nests and treasures. It is a world of Chaos, and the forces of darkness are taking advantage of it.

As always though, the force of light are not giving up. The armies of the World are coming together to fight Takhisis and her shrieking hosts, to fight the Old Races of Ogres and Draconians that have returned with her. Yet, there are no Elves, where are the Dwarves? The Gnomes? Where are the dragons of Good? None know..... but this will be part of the storyline so I won't say too much just now.

Please also note that this story will contain adult content, langauge and descriptions, so please be aware of his before you join.

Like I have done, please feel free to base your character off yourself, I find it helps me sometimes, but if you do not wish to, then you don't have to. Only humans are available, unless you decided to take up an evil character, in which case draconian, ogres and chromatic dragons are up for play.

Post your character bios here before entering for play.

Hopefull this will raise some interest. If not, it was worth a shot!

I am in on it ;) I can't sit idly by and not join this one!

Name: Heather LaValle
Nickname: Kalia
Race: Human
Avatar: Crystal Dragon
Age: 37 (remains in appearance 25)
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 178
Hair: Dark Brown, Cut short
Eyes: Hazel Green
Class: Cleric

Abilities/History: Heather had always an affinity for magic, the old folk magic that remained to this world were her tools... when Raistlin first came to this world, her magic and the faith in her friends were all that stood in his way. even when he fought to take her child, she refused to loose hope. In the past few years, not much has changed about Heather, except she hasn't aged much since that fate-filled winter that brought Raistlin to their world.

A now that more powerful magics have returned, "Kalia" has strengthened her power. During the fights for earth's freedom, she has transformed many a time into the creature of her own mind, a crystal dragon who's history she wrote, is she now living it's future?

Name: Serenity Rose LaValle
Nickname: Reni
Race: Human
Avatar: none
Age: (for this story....) 12
Height: 4'5"
Hair: Dark Brown, worn long
Eyes: Grey-blue
Class: Unknown

Abilities/History: Reni is Heather's only child, born during that first awful war. The target of Raistlin's ambitions, Serenity never knew how close her existince on this world came to being extinguished. Now a child of twelve, Reni is a quiet, thoughtful child. Sometimes downright odd. Possessing of a power that no one can seem to understand, she usually fights along-side her mother for the peace of this world.

Duuuuude! You are back!

Space is sooooo lost without yooooo.

07/05/2005 1:00 PM

...Well I really couldn't resist this thread, now could I?? :D

Name: Erica Dawn
Nickname: Eri, Ricki, Rica, Dawn, Dawnie, etc.
Race: Human
Avatar: Hybrid (Silver/Red) Dragon
Age: 30 (Woo... can't believe the character me is that old in this timeframe >_>)
Height: 5'6"
Hair: Short, light brown, and wavy. A little gray starting to show through
Eyes: Hazel (change from dark brown to dark green)
Class: Wilder Magic Mage and Bard

Abilities/History: During the fight for Earth, Erica was fused with her Krynn alter ego Airiana, and since the fusion of these two worlds, has retained some of the ancient dragoness's wisdom and magical affinity. Since the end of the fight, Airiana seems to have all but disappeared, though Erica still gets the random thought from the dragoness flash through her mind, and so it seems she is still with Erica, but remaining dormant.

In the years after the battle, Erica began learning to use her newly found magical abilities, and relied on her storytelling and singing to make a living as a bard. A friend of hers from before the fight, Jeremy, has since become her husband, and is slowly adapting to this new world. He is a craftsman and whenever Erica leaves their hometown, he travels with her to sell his wares. Erica is currently pregnant (about five months along), and is wondering how her child will turn out, knowing full well that she is not the person she was so many years ago, before the fight. She wonders if her child will have any draconic aspects, as Erica realizes that Airiana is still very much fused with her.

Hope that's alright. If there's anything that needs to be changed, just let me know!

EDIT: Changed 'er from being three and a half months to five months pregnant, so she'll be showing a bit more.

Hey folks. Sorry for the delay, been a mad mad week! Will post today, later on, promise!


07/09/2005 7:17 AM

Ok, weapons.

This Earth is like our present day Earth, possibly several years in the future, but no mjor time jump. All the weapons available now are available to the people within the story, only that ammunition, and actual numbers of guns etc are limited, due to the War many factories and what have you were destroyed. Some groups of Soldiers use swords as well as guns, so yes, somewhat like final fantasy in that sense.

The geography of the World is the exact same. The dark queen holds sway in many large cities and areas over the world, such as several states in America, more so in the southern regions, Northern Africa, and aslo the Poles as this is where her White dragons reside. The forces of 'good' still hold the majority of major cities and countries, Nothern America (New York, LA ETC ), The UK, Austrailia, China, Russia.

Some have tried to reinstate the old Knighthoods, with little effect as of yet, but their numbers are growing. So Flan, you can be apart of the Armed Forces, as all soldiers are trained in sword techniquesand shields, as well as the usual artillary.

That help any?

07/09/2005 1:00 PM

actually yes, even for me ;) I think I'll stick with my nice A1911 ;) .45Auto Springfield is a nice last resort... ;) and since I'm basing it off of R/L as much as possible, I think it's fair to warn ya that I'm a decent shot. :P

07/09/2005 2:18 PM

Kawai, I'm not so sure that your character is right for this particular thread.... :(

07/09/2005 4:38 PM

That help any?

Yes, a lot.

Name: Gabriel Sammet
Race: Human
Age: 30
Height: 6'
Weight: 180
Hair: brown
Eyes: brown
Rank: Lieutenant

History: Born and raised in the United States he traveled to Europe to study abroad for his junior year in college. During this time Raistlin came followed by the other gods. He remained in Europe because only military ships and aircrafts could make it to America over the Atlantic. Because of the situation he joined up with the armed forces before a massive draft knowing he would given a higher rank than those who were drafted. He fought battles along the Mediterranean coast mainly but has been to Northern European Countries as well. Basically he's been in the military fighting and training ever since Raistlin came.

Currently he has just landed in Egypt on a mission to retake the Suez Canal.

Hope that's okay. If not I can add more/change stuff.

07/09/2005 8:45 PM

i must start with my sincerest apologies for my earlier transgressions and i assure you that they will not happen again. may i plz join, and here is my profile for you to contemplate.

Name: Mahotsukai
Race: Human
Age: 27
Height: 5'9"
Weight: 163.8
Hair: Black
Eyes: Black
Class: Wizard of the Red Robes
History: Mahotsukai is a Japanese Citizen who, soon after he saw the new power that Rastalin wielded and then the entrance of hte new gods, set of to the fabled tower to learn this new power. He quickly reilized that the New Gods were no hoax and that they are the key to power that he always dreamed of.

again i apologize, *bows deeply*

07/10/2005 11:27 AM

Kawai, as Kalia stated, the character isn't suitable sorry. I listed the races that were available for play, and unfortunately demons were not a part of playable races.

Gaymage, welcome to the game, and don't fret too much over the OOC post in the RP, just make sure that all OOC comments are placed here in future. It makes it easier to notice OOC comments. :D

07/10/2005 11:56 AM

YAY!!! :D *jumps up and down in excitement.

07/12/2005 9:26 AM

so ummmm who is going to post in the rp or can i double post?

07/12/2005 9:47 AM

so ummmm. We're waiting for Dark_Master to post. We try to wait our turns. "Martin" is a pretty busy guy, and can't post every day. You either have to be paitent or 'abandon thread'.

In many threads, it either moves in one of two speeds, fast or slow. This happens to be one that moves slow. Perhaps one post per member a day, sometimes less. If you feel it's moving too slow to your liking, then perhaps it's not the best thread for you to start in?

[Edited by Kalia_Majere on Tuesday, July 12, 2005 9:53 AM]

07/12/2005 4:56 PM

i have no problem with waiting, i was just wondering if i was supposed to continue or watever, i mean no offence

07/12/2005 6:26 PM

I'm sorry if I sounded snippy. I've been watching my two nephues, and the youngest is really grating on my nerves.... sorry about that.

07/14/2005 12:54 AM

*smacks lips with Kalia*

thanks honey!

Gaymage, as Kalia said I can get pretty busy these days, working full time can be a bitch, especially in my job, dealing with screaming customers over the phone who want money. ah well!

Anyway, will post the now.

07/14/2005 2:48 AM

ok, basically gaymage, you can control your own characters actions and none other. This is the same for every thread you enter that was not started by yourself. Keep to that rule and you'll be fine with the rest of the thread from now on, m'k?

The Mistress of the Tower is the only mortal that grant someone access to the Tower of Sorcery, none other unless she has given them permission.

In my abscence, Kalia is the only other person that can use NPC's


07/14/2005 6:18 AM

well, his last post isn't all that bad Mertty, just cuz she's dressed in black robes doesn't make her a black robe mage. She could be a dark Cleric...*shrug*

lets see what he's got to say before I go deleting stuff.

07/14/2005 5:24 PM

well let me apoligize again for the NPCs and wat she said is correct, she was a cleric but i could edit the post so that she can't acsess the tower or if it is really a problem u may delete it. just tell me wat to do i will do so. no hard feelings? :D

07/16/2005 9:00 AM

none at all! sorry for jumping to the conclusion it was a mage. I would prefer gaymage that you control only the actions of your own PC please, just saves confusion as to who is controlling the NPCs.

Don't think I answered Flan's questions as to where the Towers' location is. To be honest I've had some difficultly in deciding where it is. I had thought of New Zealand as I thought the images protrayed in Lord of the Rings were very sutiable as a location, if you consider fangorn forest at the fundations of a ring of mountains.

any suggestions are welcomed.

07/17/2005 7:04 PM

dude, sorry, but this time I have to delete your post. Dark_Master and I have plans on where the 'good' dragons lie in wait. WHile I can't give out the information on what we plan right now, it goes to say that your post definitely won't work.

Sorry again!

07/19/2005 4:27 PM

its ok.....so i have no control over the story i can't do any thing.

07/19/2005 5:08 PM

its ok.....so i have no control over the story i can't do any thing.

Gaymage, you have control over your character. This particular RP has quite a bit of structure to it, and the GM (game master), Dark_Master, has a very good idea of what he wants to happen. There are a lot of other threads with much looser storylines, and probably aren't as well thought-out as far as what is supposed to happen, and generally in those the players have more control over the story. This one, you have to go by what you are given. Hope that helps some.

07/20/2005 12:09 PM

o ok i get it thanks

07/21/2005 9:32 AM

As Airi stated gaymage, you have control over your own characters actions, and depending upon those actions your characters reacts to the consequences or reactions. The actual story and plot development are control by me, or is case Kalia also has control if I am ever absent. Kalia and I have RPed together for a very long time, so she and I both know what the other intends etc.

Please do not think we are all trying to gang up on you, I should have made sure you understood everything from the start as you are relatively new to the Consortium. My apologies for that.

If you have any questions or queries, please voice them, as I am here, as are the other more experienced RPers, to help where we can!

07/22/2005 5:17 PM

*blush* thanks for the compliments dear.

Gaymage, Please...PLEASE!! for goodness sake, please double space between your paragraphs. The last one you did could've been two, instead of one lump of text. It can prove to be difficult to read it as such.

Also, proper capitalization helps quite a bit. I try to help newbies mostly with their paragraph structure, punctuation, grammar, and especially character creation/structure. So please don't take this the wrong way, but it's part of my job here.


[Edited by Kalia_Majere on Friday, July 22, 2005 5:21 PM]

07/24/2005 9:23 AM

very well i will form my paragraphs properly from now on and please forgive me for all the trouble i have caused. thank u for the advice. and i will use proper grammer its just that the people that i ussally RP with don't mind grammar however i will adapt to this situation.

07/26/2005 11:50 AM

ah hey im lady raistlin, i was told to post here before continuing in the thread, um i dont know what you all wanna know but feel free to ask questions

07/27/2005 5:05 PM

ARIANA!!!! u called me lesser sniff sniff......

07/28/2005 6:40 PM

Didn't mean you, dear... NPCs... other magi going over to her.

07/29/2005 8:13 AM


08/04/2005 5:20 AM

um, Gaymage, you made a bit of a mistake... Green Dragons don't breathe acid. Black dragons breathe Acid. Green dragons breath a poisonous mist. So, either change the attack or change the dragon...up to you.

08/07/2005 1:09 PM

whoops my bad....lol

08/19/2005 6:13 PM

Hey guys, here's my character, providing the RP's still open, of course.

Name: Dongjin Ham
Nickname: Jin
Race: Human
Age: Looks to be about twelve; actually in his late twenties.
Height: 5'1"
Eyes: black
Hair: black
Class: Alchemist

Now a practitioner of the twisted branch of science and magic that Takhisis created (which he whimsically dubbed alchemy), Jin used to be a leading physicist and was expected to usher the world of science into a new age until Raistlin came. He was only 13.

He went into hiding during the battles against Raistlin and was taken in by a community of cultists, or, at least, what they were regarded as before the return of the gods. The cultists had woken up one day to find that their rituals now worked; magic had returned. Jin, fascinated, did not return to his experiments and, instead, turned to the theories of magic.

What he found astonished him beyond his dreams. Dreams that grew bigger with every passing second.

He found a path that explained everything that had been unexplained. A path that enabled him to build things that made all the wonders of the world pale in comparison. He found 'alchemy'.

What he did do, however, was, once again, go into hiding, perfecting his practice in secret, as he had heard rumors of the evil goddess of old was searching for those like him. Now, however, he has reemerged to the world, transformed in body as a result of his experiments, and holding an arsenal of information that could significantly change the tide of the war.

10/14/2005 3:22 PM


What's happened, has this entire forum died?! :( Com'on people! Let's play!

11/13/2005 8:41 AM

ok, I think it may be safe to assume this thread has lost interest, could a member of staff lock the thread? it will be removed anyway after a time anyway.

11/13/2005 5:25 PM

I will if you're really sure... I just haven't gotten to it yet......:( lemme know

11/14/2005 9:09 AM

If your still interested in carrying on with the RP then great! Just didn't think anyone was still interested due to my own slow posting rate. Moved back in with me parents so got access to the internet when I want! If there is still interest then I'll carry on with the thread :)
