I want to work this as a story about a group of Antlantean Warriors who undergo a quest to try to save their land. (This Will eventually fail of course, but the journey is the story...)

Name: Airlea
Age: 16
Race: Atlantean
Class: fighter/bodyguard
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 119lbs
Hair: jet black, long and straight
Eyes: deep violet
Build: lithe and slender
Weapon: Sword/buckler
Nature/Demeanor: Chaotic Neutral/haughty and generally sports a Holier-than-thou attitude.

History: Airlea is a bodyguard for the heir to the Empire, Aikaterine, Daughter to the Emperor. It was said that Aikaterine sent Airlea herself to carry the royal seal and gain favor throughout the Atlantean Empire. (Note, the map on the main RP page, that which is in white (including Atlantis itself, is what the Atlantean Empire controls.)

The royalty at this time consists of only one child, Aikaterine who is a girl, not a boy, thus "Princess" not "prince" would you change that please?

02/25/2007 1:46 PM

ok im going to watch a movie ill be on in like 1-2 hours bye

02/25/2007 2:07 PM

I'm definitely interested, Kalia, but I'm still making my Silent Hill character, and have just gotten started in Firefly and Apocalypse threads!

I don't know if you've read any of Marion Zimmer Bradley's books (Mists of Avalon is [i]the[/i] quintessential one) but she had one about the last days of Atlantis, darned if I can remember the name of it, but it was quite good. They ended up splitting, some staying, others having to leave to try to preserve some of their knowledge by taking writings etc. to other lands. Was interesting.

02/25/2007 3:43 PM

I don't want to base it knowingly off of any book. I want this to go our own way, though those in the quest party will probably survive the fall, and spread that which was Atlantian civilization among the world.

02/25/2007 5:44 PM

I'd love to join the rp ^^ Heres my character sheet, if there is anything I need to change, just tell me.

I want to work this as a story about a group of Antlantean Warriors who undergo a quest to try to save their land. (This Will eventually fail of course, but the journey is the story...)

Name: Aurora
Age: 23
Race: Atlantean
Class: Jack of all trades, specially fighting, making weapons, and horse training.
Height: 5'4
Weight: 120
Hair: Nearly white hair that hangs to the small of her back. Always in a braid.
Eyes: Dark green
Build: Curvy and short. She looks deceptively weak, as if she has no substance or stamina.
Weapon: Various Sharp pointy objects, especially throwing knives and a rather large two handed sword she keeps strapped to her back
Nature/Demeanor: Chaotic Neutral/ She's a bit on the haughty side and sensitive about her height. She likes challenges and has a rather short fuse, and little patience for most people. Barring that, she's generally fairly fun loving...if she doesn't hate you right off the bat. Most people think shes a bit insane.

History: Aurora, or Ora as most people call her, spent most of her life hanging aroudn horses and soldiers and etc. She never really enjoyed authority and thus never bothered to join any kind of real organized fighting group. Despite this, she managed to make a decent living training the royal horses.
Her reputation for being a good fighter and knowing little bits of most things that are useful (except cooking for which everyone knew she was bad at) earned her the reputation as the go to girl if you needed something done that was a bit out of the norm.

02/25/2007 7:51 PM

good Char Setsuna...

Looks like Aurora and Airlea could have a few conflicts but it's all good :D

02/25/2007 8:28 PM

Name: Zanen
Age: 17
Race: Atlantean
Class: Rogue/Ranger
Height: 5'8"
Weight: 135lbs
Hair: Mid length, black hair
Eyes: Dark Green
Build: Acrobatic/Compact muscles
Weapon: Sword, Daggers, and Bow
Nature/Demeanor: Neutral Good, More of a lone Wolf type, but can fit in with a crowd if he is in the mood.

History: Zanen is an uncatchable thief in most Atlantean towns, he is now living quietly in the capital city. Zanen grew up in the bad part of his home town, with lots of thieving and murder in the streets. when he was a child he went hunting with his father to bring back meat to sell for food, as he got to be around 13-14 he started picking pockets and the like. One thing to watch out for with zanen is if he gets one of his drawn daggers within a foot of you, you don't stand a chance.

There you go Kalia, im all ready. unless you see something wrong

02/25/2007 9:34 PM

conflicts are fun ^^ Just give out a sign when posting is all dandyfull.

02/26/2007 1:25 AM

I don't want to base it knowingly off of any book. I want this to go our own way,

Obviously, lol- just thought if it was a topic you were interested in you might enjoy the book! ;)

02/26/2007 10:55 AM

I would like to join as well. Here is the character I had in mind.

Name: Varick
Age: 44
Race: Atlantean/Germanic mix
Class: Soldier (fighter)
Height: 6'4"
Weight: 235 lbs
Hair: Short, pale blond hair. Also wears a full beard, cut short.
Eyes: Ice blue
Build: Large and ropy
Weapon: Sword and Shield, Javelins (or whatever their infantry standard is)
Nature/Demeanor: Disciplined and reserved, except when he's drunk. Then he is boisterous, loud, rude, and sometimes dangerous.

History: A soldier and a soldier's son. Has spent his entire life in the army of Atlantis, on its frontiers. Has no family, at least none that he knows of. He did used to get drunk a lot. He is an excellent soldier, and has been promoted several times. Unfortunately he has managed to lose most of those promotions, either when drunk or through his complete political ineptitude. He has been a few commander's scapegoat over the years. He has authority over only a very small number of men, but his long service in the army has earned him a piece of land on which he plans to retire very soon, after his last, hopefully cushy, tour of duty. After all, his last tour has finally brought him to the capital, Atlantis.

02/26/2007 4:20 PM

02/26/2007 5:18 PM

I'm not really good at starting a thread so anybody start it please!

02/27/2007 1:43 PM

PS: I think we should have a sailor in our quest i mean i have a feeling we wil be sailing a lot.

02/27/2007 7:44 PM

It sounds very interesting so I think I'm going to join. It doesn't looke like you're too far into it though so we'll have to change that.

Name: Jaster
Age: 15
Race: Atlantean
Class: Warrior
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 120lbs
Hair: Spikey, dark brown with silver tips
Eyes: A sort of indigo kind of color, a mixture of blue and purple
Build: Slim, fairly muscular
Weapon: Long bow, a dagger with a long blade, an ancestral longsword
Nature: Friendly, shy, brave when courage is lacking in those around him

History: Jaster is a small boy, living on his own in a small hut. He was orphaned at a young age. His mother and father both died of sickness. He trained himself in the ways of the swordsman which explains his unorthodox style. He earns his money by doing odd jobs, tomb raiding, exploring, household chores, anything you can think of almost. He is always ready for an adventure.

I await your evaluation.

02/28/2007 5:10 AM

Name: Barusoa

Age: 40

Race: Atlantean

Class: Stuck-up Nobleman

Height: 5'10"

Weight: 145lbs

Hair: Slicked back black hair, almost reaching his shoulders.

Eyes: A plain, dark brown; nothing mystical.

Build: More fat than muscle, thanks to his wealthy, wasteful lifestyle.

Weapon: Highly-polished, master-crafted, jewel-encrusted longsword.

Nature/Demeanour: Overly confident, wasteful and selfish.

History: Barusoa was born into a rich, aristocratic family. He has had very little hardships, apart from a distant relationship with his parents.

He was taught to read and write, as well as defend himself when pushed into a corner. He was also taught many languages, mainly to be able to get a good deal out of foreign merchants.

Now though, he wants more. He wants to be remembered as a great man. He wants statues erected of him.

Barusoa wants it all.
