View Full Version : In the wake of it all(Pre RP setup)
12-06-2008, 09:03 PM
Once again I've returned with and idea for an RP. This one however, is slightly different to that of my past role plays. What I've come up with pits two factions against one another in a medieval fantasy-style alternate version of Earth. The two factions are the "Forsaken legion" (an undead Gothic viking style horde led by a group of Death Knights) And the Human race. The Humans are all united under one banner, therefore they have only one King, and the Forsaken are united under their own. What sets this apart is that there will be players on both sides. The players for the forsaken being death knights - a necromantic/warlock warrior - and those on the Human side being paladins, warriors, and mages. I've opened this thread so that we can plan our characters before hand, and tweak certain aspects to everyones liking.
As the creator of this thread, I will create my character first.
Faction: Forsaken Legion
Rank: Overlord (Head of the Forsaken, yet for major decisions throughout the plot a council of the Death Knights will we held as to make matters fair. Likewise for that of the Humans.)
Color: Slate Grey (Used for speaking)
(With helmet on.)
(With helmet off)
Bio: Aden's past is a mystery, even to those closest to him. It is said that he was once a great, and benevolent ruler amongst the humans. Yet along his many journeys he slowly became corrupted for reasons also unknown. For five long years he vanished into obscurity, only to resurface as the leader of the newly formed Forsaken Legion. Based out of the barren and merciless tundra of Antarctica, he rules over his minions with a cold heart, and an iron fist. Having respect only for his Generals (Other players -- Death Knights) Torodar plans to wage a merciless campaign against the Human Race, and claim his rightful place as the ruler of this world.
A few rules before we begin tweaking and making characters:
- No God characters. Magic is allowed, but to a point, nothing insane.
- Stay within the themes boundaries. That means stick to medieval weaponry, and armor ect.
- No flamming
- No spamming
- No arguing. If you have a discrepancy with someone, calmly deal with it outside of the RP through private messages.
- The only Races that you can pick are Undead or Human...nuf said.
Once we gain a Ruler for the Humans, and several Generals on both sides I'll open the actual RP. I ask, however that when it does begin, the first few post for the Forsaken be plotting and preparing, and the first few for Humans be unsuspectingly going about an average day.
A storm is coming.... A snow storm.... And in the wake of it all, there will be either A new.... dark world order... or peace and prosperity.

Seeing as the Forsaken Legion gets Antarctica I forgot to say that the Humans get All of Europe - Eastern and Western. The rest of the world is an uninhabited wasteland.

Name: Brian De Boru
Rank: Conscripted Militia-man, common soldier
Color: Blue (Used for speaking)
Bio: Brian is a simple boy raised by a simple pair of parents, two of whom are both grape farmers, owning an average business supplying both the fruits and the wine to the populace. However, what came out of that was a man who is a born inventor and polymath. By the age of six, Brian Boru mastered the common speech amongst the Humans as well as mathematics and a general understanding of how the world works- all the influence of a travelling sage who took an interest in his shining, blossoming talent.
By the age of 12, he knew generally how buildings are constructed and weapons forged. He knew about the general workings of the human body as well as of nature (A rather scorned and obscure art named 'science'). His artistic/aesthetic sense is unequaled. He is somewhat like Leonardo Da Vinci, except undiscovered.
By the time he was 18, he had his own workshop supplying simple furnitures to his neighbours and some special customers from the local aristocrats. A space in it was settled for his curiosities. He had the knack for creating bizarre objects, but has yet to show the world what they are, not that there is anything yet as he is still in the baby steps of experimenting with the unknown and the unseen.
The only body of knowledge he missed however was magic, for he has no access to it. The travelling sage was an odd fellow who scorns the use of magic, believing that it will only one day destroy the world.
When he was 20, he was drafted into the local militia as he is able-bodied and quite well-built in his pursuit for intelligence. With no spare time at all, his innovative creativity was put to a halt. With no time at all, he cannot show his real capabilities and no one will ever know. Perhaps it is up to someone in the military to notice it. Perhaps it is up to no one at all, and the world will know no enlightenment.

Alright.... things are progressing slowly, but steadily. I made a quick change to my character's name: Aden (pronounced AY-den) we need roughly three more people on each side.
12-07-2008, 07:52 PM
It seems that few people here are interested in roleplaying. Is there anything wrong with my character so far?
12-07-2008, 09:12 PM
No, nothing wrong with your character. But you seem to be right. Not many people are interested in the RP, or in RPing in general. *Sigh* I don't know.... A while ago these forums were lively and full of players. Just look at my old RPs. It's only been a day since this has begun, give it some time then we'll know what to do. I know of another site that has an RP section. If this fails here... we'll try there. I'll send you a link when the time comes.

Sure no problem. ~~~~, feels as though the both of us are escaping a zombie apocalypse. :D
12-08-2008, 03:03 PM
I'll Join soon but i need five posts to post URL's of what my character should look like
THIS IS MY FIFTH POST :D

Name: Toris Lander
Occupation: Dark General
Weapons/Armor: Bladed Shoulder Plates, Heavy suit of armor, Dual Daggers, Long dark sword
Color used for speaking: black
Me with Daggers: (googled it :D) http://www.afhub.com/images/dcd/april_2008/wow_undead_rogue.jpg
dark sword: (also googled it) http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s216/phyreblade_blog/Weapons/Sword%20of%20Darkness/SwordofDarkness.jpg
Toris was once a human. . .a very rich and powerful human. Toris was once a king, before that a knight. . .and long before that a poor farm boy. He was assassinated by his best friend at the age of thirty, and had vowed that he one day would kill that man. It had been hundreds of years since then, but since he figured that his killer was imprisoned forever in a magical stone, he decided to join the newly formed Forsaken Legion and help kill off the humans. But first he had to run an errand. . . . .
Jackson Russon was twnty-nine when he had killed his best friend. He wanted to be the king. He had been magically imprisoned in a stone for hundreds of years, He now awoke. A woman ran over to him and asked how he was, He said hungry. In a flash he was gone!
Jackson was in a very bright room, the light faded quickly as a large sword came into view. He knew that sword anywhere! It was Toris! In one slash Jackson was beheaded and then teleported to a desert far away. . .there he rot for eternity. . .
Toris was happy that his other mage friend had done him that favor, that if he were to be assassinated the assassin would be forever imprisoned until he awoke to kill them.
One of the leaders of the Forsaken Legion recruited him as a High level general, meant to make battle decisions, but he wanted to fight, so he made him a Battle General, because of his experience he was a masterful fighter, and a worthy opponent!
PS a Battle General is a general who fights in battles :D obviously!)
PS2 sorry my signature is sorta off topic but i don't wanna change or remove it :D
PS3 I said ps2 and ps3 :D
12-08-2008, 04:50 PM
k we have another member. One problem though. ejunderscore's first picture link takes me to some random page showing off two James Bond dolls and a character from the batman cartoon. try and fix that. we still need a human leader, and more members for both sides.
Name: Relkar Soban
Rank: Grand Lord King
Bio: King Soban inherited the throne after the capital was attacked by savage undead forces. The city was taken, albeit momentarily, and the foul evils therein were driven forthwith. The battle lasted naught a month, yet the losses were great. The previous King Soban had died in defense of the city. When the palace fell, Soban's wife and young daughter were still within. By the light of the morrow when Soban had rallied the troops and lead them back into the city, they had already been killed. So it was that Soban sorrowfully took upon his brow the icon of leadership from his father's body, swearing to bring justice to the lands he watched over and scour the dark blight that had festered in it forever more.

Name: Laggen Wolfram
Rank: Lead Commander
Bio: The eldest of five siblings in a peasant family, Laggen worked hard and fought even harder to reach where he is today: at the side of Grand Lord King Soban himself. Not to say that the ladder up to the point was a hard climb; being the Grand Lord King's bestest friend helps. His snide, condescending demeanor and unique sense of honor creates a character not many enjoy. A fact that he relishes greatly.

Everyone's a royal highness except me :'( :D
Hypocrisy will not be tolerated within the king's court.

Good good, I just have no idea what Hilarity & Ion's character look like. We need one more for the Forsaken side, and then we can start by transferring over to the RP thread. this will be used for OOC or questions.
Good good, I just have no idea what Hilarity & Ion's character look like.
He looks like the kind of person that you'd imagine if you heard the words 'Paladin of the Light'.
12-09-2008, 06:24 PM
http://images.elfwood.com/art/h/e/henyokid/paladin_01.jpg I googled "Paladin of the Light" and this came up. Heh, he looks like the polar opposite of my character.
Soban is more valiant than the picture you have supplied.

OMFGLOL I put i different link in, my bad heres the real one---> http://www.majorspoilers.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/03/dcuwowseries3/WoW.3.UndeadRogue.jpg
12-10-2008, 03:02 AM
lol :) For a minute there I thought your character's from an alternate universe or something :D
Looks like more people's interested than I expected. Good... Good... :)
12-10-2008, 04:15 PM
Thats great....but we still need one more person for the Forsaken side. If there isn't another by tomorrow 4pm est we'll begin.
12-10-2008, 05:17 PM
That's great! So what's the style of this RP? Is it very structured as in having battle mode, free roam mode and everything? Or is it totally free-form? :)
12-10-2008, 05:25 PM
flash u there?
12-10-2008, 05:26 PM
how can i play the game?
12-10-2008, 05:30 PM
Please don't spam, double-post, be impatient and post as if this is MSN messenger. Put a single post down and wait patiently for him to reply instead.
12-10-2008, 05:41 PM
To briannova & Bardock
I'll show you with an example but overall I'd say it's free form. Let's say a city is under siege. Let's say it's England. I'll post from the POV of someone viewing it from afar. A Forsaken general and may be a future NPC.
Grom (the name comes first)
My troops were in full charge. From atop this overlooking ridge I could see it all. As they swarmed out of the surrounding forests, and clashed with the feeble human soldiers, the screams of panicking civilians could be heard from within the city walls for miles. Though the humans archers, foot soldiers, and catapults clashed with my men, they were no match for our skill and sheer numbers. As the battle waged I, upon my undead mount ( http://pix.sparky-s.ie/images/xxgppehjf4y6mi3t8i82.jpg picture this.), decided to join the fight. As I rode through the battlefield, sword in hand, I slayed countless enemys. I could see the end of this "war", and it did not bode well for the humans. As the last of their defenses fell, my troops flooded into the city, taking no prisoners.
Something like that for a battle, overall just react to another players post. Don't control their character unless they gave permission, other than that it's free-form. Just don't power game when it comes to fighting another player if it comes up, and don't take down a army single handed. If you need another example read my most successful RP here Beginning of the End http://www.zombiepanic.org/forums/showthread.php?t=6716 . And if you have some free time, read it anyway.
12-10-2008, 05:54 PM
Bardock, create a profile like the one in the first post, mine. Have it include your character name, appearance, faction ( we need one more forsaken. ), rank ( if you go forsaken, make yourself a type of general.), and a small bio. Since this is a forum. once it gets started tomorrow, transfer your profile into the new section
FYI: It will be called "In the wake of it all (RP)"
once that is done as I said before, post a well through out action, dont act all godly, and dont control other players. because your new here, skim through the link above in my last post to get an idea on how to play. I'll post it again http://www.zombiepanic.org/forums/showthread.php?t=6716
Welcome to Zombiepanic.org
12-10-2008, 06:08 PM
Cool! This is going to be good :) This is well-thought out I figured :) I just hope that all of us won't be isolated from each other given that this game is taking place on an epic scale. Hope there's plenty of interaction between everyone. :)
12-15-2008, 12:52 PM
To late to join the forsaken? I promise to not freak out on anyone this time.
12-15-2008, 02:00 PM
Join, but place yourself amongst the ground troops.
