okay peeps, I need these certain characters for sure k?

All basic races will be accepted.

A Barbarian type warrior
A Thief
A Mage (alighnment doesn't really matter, though good or neutral would be ideal)
A female Warrior
and someone to play Sayori's Bodyguard.

after those requirements are filled, anything else goes k?

and *sigh* yes, if this looks familiar it should, as it's based off of Conan: the Destroyer. I am trying to follow the plot line at the least.

08/03/2005 8:20 AM

hmmm, although i have never seen Conan I'am still intrested in joining. Now if i want to be a charater such as Sayori's Bodyguard do i have to act, look, and do what the bodyguard did in the movie? or is this only loosly based on it?

08/03/2005 8:32 AM

only loosly based on it. I'm usually pretty reasonable about such things :D

08/03/2005 8:51 AM

Hmmm....think I'll take the thief character. Those are always fun!

Name: Kierwood Badong
Sex: Male
Race: Human
Age: 19
Occupation: Thief
Description: Ratty blonde hair, green eyes w/flecks of brown in them, average looking, thin, average height, very clever.
Background: Kierwood comes from a small village (where else?) where his family had to steal things to survive. He became very good at his trade, and started to think that he couldn't be caught. One day, while trying to get some bread for his family, a young boy spotted him. The boy yelled out, drawing attention to Kierwood. Kierwood ran home, and, after telling his father what had happened, packed a small bag and snuck out of his village late at night. Currently on the road, trying to survive.

08/03/2005 9:12 AM

Ok,ill post this bio(i want to be the bodyguard) so please tell me if i need to change anything.
alright heres my character bio.

Name: Ludill

Age: 28

Race: Human

Skin: Caucasian

Body Type: Fit, toned

Eye Color: Hazel Brown

Hair Color/Style: Black hair that goes to the shoulders.

Facial Hair: A thin black goatee, with a sole patch

Clothes: Under his silver chest piece a casual white shirt with long sleeves. Light brown pants, black riding boots.

Weapon(s): Mateer, a one handed sword that looks like it should be a two-handed sword. The blade is made from pure silver, with a white stripe that goes up the center on each side. The blade is the length of a mans arm, the handle is Black wrapped in brown leather. The end of the handle is shaped as a circle about the size of a childs fist.

Personal Item(s): A wooden pipe, the pipe itself is the length of a mans finger.

Personality: Quiet, has a hard time trusting people, doesnt wish to put people in harms way.

Bio: Ludills parents were killed when Ludill was still a baby, or so he was told, which meant Ludill had to grow up in foster homes. His foster parents were cruel and abusive so Ludill finally snapped and ran away. Ludill was still young when this happened (about 14), he had no money, no place to stay, and know one wanted to house a street rat. By sheer luck Ludill had come across a monk temple and with an agreement that he must do chores to earn his stay. Ludill lived with the monks. A monk elder name Master Giumenchchi (Pronounced Guy~you~men~chi) took interest in Ludill. Along with the chores Ludill had (which were developing muscles), Master Giumenchchi trained Ludill in the art of sword wielding, hand-to-hand combat, stealth, and inner-peace. Ludill trained from the moment he got up to the moment he went to sleep with only three breaks, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This kind of training was hard but necessary, Ludill became fit, and toned his body was developing. On Master Giumenchchi deathbed he gave Ludill his sword, the sword of Mateer. With the loss of a friend, and what Ludill felt as a father, Ludill decided he wanted to go and be alone for awhile.
Ludill left the temple at the age of 19 and journeyed across the land until he came across a dwarvren city. While he was staying here an attack happened involving orcs. Ludill had fought bravely and was given a peace pipe. Also while he stayed with the dwarves Ludill learnt a lot about hunting, and learnt about defensive stances. He had only stayed there a year before it was time for him to go, he didnt know where and he didnt know for what he just knew it was time.
Ludill was escorted to the city of Asmere where he joined up with a group of adventurers. But one had caught his attention the most&Misty. Ludill was young, and he was in love. The group had spent their time looking for a gem, and heard rumors about it being a cave to the West Coast. The rumors were right&But know one had said anything about a miniature being in the cave. The Cave was more like a maze and the group had agreed to spilt up, Ludill was with Misty.
It was these two that found the gem, little did they know there friends had been killed. As they were making their way to the entrance (which was a few feet in front of them) the miniature struck with a crued blade at Misty. Ludill looked down he didnt know what happened to her, he spun around the beast stood there&.
The rest was a blur, the only thing Ludill knew was he was in a bed his and was broken and he had over a dozen stitches. &
It was only after this he found out what happened to Misty, his heart was shattered, his life was shaken.
Ludill signed up for the king's army and made his way up the rank, the fighting he's seen over the years give his face a stone like figure to it.

08/03/2005 1:39 PM

I have a question before I offer up for the mage. You had said that its Conan base is loose, but did you still want a bubmling mage, or a serious one.

08/03/2005 1:57 PM

Hmm... looks interesting, though I've never seen Conan... I'd like to take the female warrior, if you don't mind... have a character sheet for you later tonight?

08/03/2005 2:39 PM

oh, the mage in Conan was serious enough... his 'bumbling' act was just that, an act ;)

but up to you.

08/03/2005 4:05 PM

I wouldn't mind playing the Barbarian warrior. I've seen Conan before but I don't remember much about it. If its ok then I'll have a character whipped up by tonight.

08/03/2005 4:39 PM

Alright, I'll take the mage. I'll figure everything out and then I'll post what I get.

08/03/2005 4:55 PM

only one condition Soaring, if you can keep up a steady posting schedule...:( If you don't think you can, I'll give the character to who I hoped would've posted for it (The hubby... *Grumble* He was supposed to come online much sooner than this to check it out...)

08/03/2005 5:36 PM

Yeah I can. After being gone for awhile I have wanted to get back into FFRP. Though you can have your hubby be the Barbarian if you want. I could always be an evil servant working for Marfla. And that way if I don't keep a steady posting schedule you can always kill off my evil servant like in Conan.

08/03/2005 6:46 PM

Okay, I think I have this ready.

Name: Lasaphin (later to be Phin) Dalmius
Sex: male
Race: human
Age: 47
Type: Mage; neutral, bordering good

Description: A short 5'3" with olive skin and dark brown hair with greying streaks that remains braided down to the middle of his back. He wears subtle earth tones, but always has on a tanned, animal skin vest with beaded tassles on the front and a beaded eagle on the back.

Background: Phin discovered his talent at a late age of 22, but turned out to be mildly powerful. He left his hometown to learn in the wilderness under an ancient woman known only as Torleisa. He learned to try and avoid direct violence, using non-leathal methods first, but knows some deadly tricks to use in a time of need. Most of his magic is more of a control over the elements as opposed to accual verbal spells (examples to follow). He is currently in the city after returning from a long trip to hone his skills.

Magig examples: Thickening the air around something in order to hold it; create a temporary wall of fire for protection (pretty much completely surrounding the four elements).

~I would be willing to enter into this with a slight history with another character. Nothing detailed, just a little bit to make reference to, such as a means to bring up calling my character Phin instead of using his whole name.

08/03/2005 7:51 PM

So my info sheet...ok or needs to be changed?

08/04/2005 4:04 AM

Hi. Just wanted to say Im definitely intrested in this story. It looks like all of your required characters have been filled. I will come up with a character as soon as inspiration strikes....

08/04/2005 5:17 AM

well so far, everything looks okay... and Soaring, you'd probably be better off playing the evil minion if you don't mind. I'll let you know for sure later today...

08/04/2005 5:44 AM

Well if Soaring isn't going to play the barbarian and no one has any objections I'll have a crack at it...


08/04/2005 6:33 AM

Well if Soaring isn't going to play the barbarian and no one has any objections I'll have a crack at it...


*giggles* baby... i think you were made to play that role >:):p

hmmm it looks like all the parts are taken... perhaps i can get in on the next one ;) i want to start writing again!!!! :D just keep me informed 'k???

08/04/2005 7:11 AM

How's this for irony. While I have both Conan movies and can therefor watch them when ever, I turned on the t.v. just now and isn't it playing on one of the HBO channels. I get to get a refresher and a few idea's just out of the blue!

08/04/2005 9:28 AM

alright, we starting this?

08/04/2005 9:48 AM

Name: Jarria Strongblade
Sex: Female
Race: Human
Age: 26
Occupation: Warrior
Description: Jarria is tall at 5'11" and of medium build. Her body is well toned and she is very strong. She has black hair and dark brown eyes, and a tan that is only a few shades lighter than her eyes. Her longsword is always at her side, and she wears the usual plain tunic and plate armor of any warrior. She is quiet, but will also make her opinion known when she feels the need for it.
Background: Jarria came from a family of warriors, in one type or another. Her father and brothers all fought to earn their living as soldiers and mercenaries, while the females in her family became fighters in their own respect to protect their land. At a young age, Jarria decided that she wanted to be out campaigning like her brothers, and began training herself to wield a sword. When her brothers found her at it, they joked at first, but seeing her determination, soon were teaching her all they knew. When she was old enough, Jarria began going out on her own and battling when she could.

well so far, everything looks okay... and Soaring, you'd probably be better off playing the evil minion if you don't mind. I'll let you know for sure later today...

Thats cool with me. I'll think up an evil minion and post him later today.

08/04/2005 4:52 PM

alright :)

Well... as far as starting it, I believe I already have,.... I'm just waiting on you guys ;) and Arandur, the hubbie is gonna probably play the barbarian char... you and Dawnie can play additional characters if you like. I just needed those required chars for sure, others are welcome though :D

08/04/2005 6:28 PM

Name: Tao Iaran
Sex: Male
Race: Human
Age: 24
Occupation: Pirate/Servant
Description: Tao has spikey red hair and brown eyes. He is shirtless with red pants, wears bells around his waist and a red bandana. He has tattoos on his shoulders and arms. He has a medium build and tannish skin. He is very strong and fast. He enjoys fighting and hates those who retreat. He says what he thinks and bows only to those that have gained his respect, or if they have bought his respect.
Background: Tao is a deadly pirate known through out the land. Any ship that came in contact with his never left unscathed. He plundered and burnt villages to the ground. He was captured by the Royal Navy and imprisoned. Marlfa released him on one condition... that he would stay in the shadows till the day that she called for him. Ever since then he has awaited for that call.

08/05/2005 8:21 AM

Okay I have been inspired. Let me know if this Char. is okay.

Name: Montclair du Felronde AKA: Monty

Sex: Male

Race: Human

Age: 21

Occupation: Bard

physical Description: Monty has straight, dark brown hair that just barely grazes his shoulders. He usually has it tied back however and often wears a wide brimmed hat.
His face is young and his smooth features betray his spoiled upbringing. His eyes are blue and innocent for they have not witnessed any of the horrors that peasant life has to offer.
He wears a soft white long-sleeved shirt that ties at the chest and over this he wears a black vest. On his legs he wears simple brown breeches and on hot days he wears sandals. He loves tobacco for he was forbidden to smoke under his parents tutelage and now can be seen puffing away every chance he gets.

History: Monty is the son of a wealthy and powerful baron who wanted nothing more than His beloved son to follow in his footsteps in the profitable spice trade. However, Monty had his own dreams and desires. He wanted nothing more than to become a lovesick and penniless bard wandering the countryside singing tales of bravery and love. With his lute (Lola) and his trusty pipe he ran off one night determined to make it on his own in the wide world. Monty led a very cushy life on his parents' estate and is quite naive of the real world and how "simple folk" truly live. He is however well educated and charming. Monty now travels the roads looking for his grand source of inspiration.

08/05/2005 5:24 PM

Okay Kalia, I will put together an outdoorsman type of character then, I think that should work in the group. What d'ya reckon?...


08/05/2005 5:57 PM

Cael of Aquilonia.

Sex: Male
Race: Human (Aquilonian)
Age: 31
Occupation: Warrior / Ranger
Description: Cael is a tall, lithe figure with long tawny hair and pale grey eyes -a legacy of his heritage and the lingering bloodline of the lost Atlanteans. He generally wears breeches of deerskin and a sleeveless tunic with his forearms, shins and right hand are bound with strips of leather. The Aquilonian ranger is a tall, reserved figure and is seldom seen without his bow of polished horn.

Background: Cael hails from the Northern provinces of Aquilonia where he trained in the militia before striking out across the lands and learning his craft as a mercenary. His travels have taken him to far exotic places and also taught him the skills necessary for guiding caravans and armies across the lands, the manner in which he now earns his coin...

08/06/2005 10:30 PM

Out of curiosity - is this actually set -in- Hyboria.. or is a world of your own design, only loosely based on Howardian lore?

(Oh, and Aquilonians are in no way related to Atlanteans. -Cimmerians- are the descendants of the Atlanteans, and only those with Cimmerian blood could possibly claim any relation to Atlanteans.)

[Edited by Dark_Elf_Damien on Saturday, August 6, 2005 10:32 PM]

08/06/2005 11:50 PM

I think it is more loosely based if at all...

Oh, and Aquilonians are in no way related to Atlanteans. -Cimmerians- are the descendants of the Atlanteans, and only those with Cimmerian blood could possibly claim any relation to Atlanteans.)

True to a point though some of the Nordheimer stock could conceivably claim Atlantean ancestry especially amongst the Aesir.

I was actually intending to play a Gunderman who dwell in northern Aquilonia are said to bear the truest lineage of First Hyborian tribes to sweep from the North (Hence the tawny hair and grey eyes). The Atlantean bit I threw in for colour considering the plot is based off the marvel comics version of Conan and not Howard's...

08/06/2005 11:57 PM


I'd still be curious just how close the setting mimicks the existing one - and where it differentiates (or where it is the same, either way).

08/10/2005 11:53 AM

I wasn't even really concerned on the setting... just basic fantasy-style. I just wanted it to be very loosely based on the storyline more than anything...

08/11/2005 11:06 PM

If there is room for one more, I would like to also participate, would be a good way to learn from the more experienced members here. If not, its fine, I will watch the thread with keen interest.

Here is my character, hopefully he will fit in and possibly add the the story.

Cullyn Darkstorm

Sex: Male
Race: Human (Unknown lineage)
Age: 34
Occupation: Warrior/Pirate
Description: Cullyn stands at 5'8" a seemingly perfect height for a seaman, though somewhat shorter than most males. His short hair is dark, streaked heavily with grey, his eyes like chips of blue ice and have a tendency to unnerve people who he stares at. He wears a puffy white shirt, and black fine cloth breeches tucked into thigh length boots, turned down at the top. He wears a dark blue sash around his waist, and carries a cutlass at his hip. His skin is deeply tanned and contrasts to the fine clothes he wears.

Background: Cullyn's father was a merchant, he sailed from port to port, buying and selling exotic wares. From the age of 8 Cullyn went wherever his father did, his mother stayed at home, tending to his three sisters. By the age of 14, Cullyn was an experienced sailor, his father would often leave command of the ship up to him when he would go ashore. When Cullyn was 17, their home nation begun to war with their neighbours. This proved both good and bad fortune, with the price of goods going up at home, they made a massive profit whenever they returned. Unfortunately, on one trip home, they found their home port had been raided by the navy of their enemy, their home had been shattered by cannonfire and their family was no longer.

The pair never returned, dumping all of their good overboard, they left the very same day, starting a legacy of vengeance against their nations enemy. This lasted 2 years, when a peace treaty was signed between teh nations, by this time, Cullyn was the commander of the ship, his father had died 2 months earlier, in a battle that had gone badly.

And so he decided to return to the trading life, but this did not last long, he missed the thrill of the fight, so on his 25th birthday, he dropped his cargo off for the last time, and began hunting down ships. He lived by his own code of honor, he was a villain to some, and a hero to others.

Now his life has caught up with him, his ships seized, his crew in prison, and running one step ahead of the executioner, he has been staying in this strange town for just over a week.

08/16/2005 6:38 AM

Soaring, just incase you're wondering why I edited your post, it was only context errors. Mostly because you copy/pasted your reply. Try to use notepad or wordpad instead of Microsoft Word or Works Processor. For some reason it causes a glitch in the post and instead of " or ' you get little boxes instead, Chung said it had something to do with the fact that they're curly instead of just a little stright line. *Shrug*

08/16/2005 2:21 PM

Ok thanks. Yeah I noticed that and tried to fix my reply before that. I thought I found a way around it but guess not. I'll use my notepad from now on. So thanks again.

08/18/2005 9:08 AM

Hey, just so you know, I'm still in this...just waiting for a good time to let my character enter is all.

08/23/2005 7:42 AM

Kawai, I think I have my limit for this game... too many can make it confusing.... sorry.

as far as Newbie friendly threads, As soon as I can gather the sages for a meeting (heh) we'll be considering a new one. I have an idea in mind and have talked to Airiana about it. She's all for it, and it's a more complicated plot than Saving Syndar....

08/23/2005 12:50 PM

well lay it on me! no really whats the idea? the last one was very good. i'll just wait for it to be posted

08/23/2005 8:16 PM

well lay it on me! no really whats the idea? the last one was very good. i'll just wait for it to be posted

The last idea came from a sarcastic comment I made followed by the other sages saying they liked the idea.

Check out the Training Grounds, I believe Kalia and Airiana have something going on there. It's not exactly like a normal RP thread but it won't hurt to at least check it out.

08/23/2005 8:21 PM

ok thankies
