Thousands of years ago in a planet yet unknown by mankind (when translated into english from the ancient symbols of Letaria) it is called Haslari. A race of creatures came about from the small water regions of the planet(which would look not much more than a large lake) After hundreds of years they evolved and formed into a creature much like the humans of today. When each of the creatures that are called Gorangers was born they would each get a crystal encrusted into their skin. This crystal would effect their lives in many ways. Each crystal meant the childs greatest strength and worst weakness. But then one day a great child was born. He got no crystal. He seemed to have no weakness. This news quickly got to every person on the planet. Years later after the birth the person called Farlado meaning no weakness soon learned of the legend of Lestari in which it said "The one without the crystal would be the one to rule all." With this knowledge he attacked the counsil of Haslari and took over the fortress of Sacred Sword. He then stole the Sacred Sword also known as Lardiwith and used it as a key to take over the minds of others and lead them into his legion of chaos. With this he waged an all out war against the kingdom of Yetlari. A kingdom that has the third largest rule over the world.

Sorry for raining on your parade again, DK, but what is the plot in all this? Just another hack and slash war, or is there a purpose? While we are on the subject, what is it you people have with stats, classes and the likes? Don't you people know how free form roleplaying is played?

Caelin is right. In freeform roleplay there are no real 'classes' or particular spells, or stats of any kind. Those kinds of rules belong in video games and tabletop games where how stats work can be abjudicated, whether it be a dice-game like d20, or a diceless game like MURP.

Have you ever actually done freeform roleplaying before?

no prob. I understand what you are doing. I just like to do this because I've always done it. Don't worry I have freeform played but I don't like it as much. Anyway yeah I like the different classes and stuff. But I understand what you are doing. Fine. I will try to give up a little on these and get back itno freeform.

I thought it sounded kinda interesting, Maybe from now on in the top, put in big bold letters... WARNING: Not Freeform Roleplaying Then go on with it, then people couldn't tell you it's wrong, cuz then it's not freeform anymore, it's just a play by post rpg thats different than everything else on the site................ maybe?

He really.. can't.. do that. This site doesn't have dice rollers.. and there are no 'rules.' You need both in order for stats and other character builders to make sense in a message board format.

Yeah. If you want to roleplay in this kind of message board format, you need to set it up as a freeform roleplay. It's just not practical to attempt to have stats of any kind, ya know?

Yeah I know. I just wanted to try it because I went to a forum site and found a play by post rpg that had about 100 and some threads made for it because it was the thing everyone liked. I tryed it a few times on other sites and have gotten a few okay ones and a few not so greats ones ether. But yeah I know I have to do freeform. I just haven't got into it yet.

So instead of trying to do it all on your own.. why don't you join an RP thread that's already active and get a feel for it first?

in the forgotten realms threads there is one called "Thay, red wizards, and trouble in the Tharchs.." I'm trying to jumpstart that one.. the creator kinda put the idea and some plot into it, then abandoned it, but I posted my character, and damnit all! I'm gonna play him. So if you wanna try testing your freeform in that, I don't know if it's gonna end up being a deep story or anything so feel free to join in. Also, if you have any questions, recently we had some trouble in "new garden of Eden" you can read that (both ooc and ic) and it'll give ya some idea of what NOT to do... but only if you need it. Other than that, hope you immerse yourself and find that you like free form.
