Hello all. I am BlackElement if you didnt already read my name. I am an oldie from A4. Some of you may or may not remember me. Regardless, im a long time roleplayer. Online and offline. I actively participate in games and story driven social settings. Yes i play D&D. But i am also into Table Top Rpgs. Just an excerpt about me so you can feel more comfortable with your GM, me. Here is a small and concise version of what i plan: An Excerpt from Lt.Lazaolus' field journal: I had woken up today at sunrise as is my usual. The air was crisp and cold at this altitude. The sun was climbing the eastern sky and the day was clear and bright. As i left my tent and made rounds to check my camp for my fellow men, i found nothing. No sign of life. Initially i was worried and curious. It was unusual for the men to leave the camp at night and i always awoke first to take on the morning duties. I checked inside one of the other tents and found nothing suspicious. Nothing had been stolen, all the weapons and gear accounted for. Just the men were missing. As i began to get more fearful i went to the the lookout tower to see if they had been away at some meeting without me. I climbed the wooden ladder, intending to get to the top for a better view. Part way through my ascent i spotted a group of figures in the distance on the path leading up to our camp. Thats when my blood turned to ice. The gate was painted with gore. Blood every where, as if the entire platoon had poured every bit of their life essence into the snow. I saw no weapons or a sign of a struggle. But what scared me worse was that what ever was below me had just seen me. And they were wearing the skins of my comrades. This setting is going to be low magic. Meaning people are mostly mundane and normal. People do not like or even see adventures like you often. Regarding it as a foolhardy endeavor and the path to a quick grave. The world is largely controlled by a religious order called the Templar Inquisition. They are a crusader esq regime that dominates the civil countries with an iron fist. Dedicating their resources to the control and management of magical entities. Meaning magic is widely banned. They have been in power for a long time. But as you will come to find out, magic is not so easily kept contained. Forces and entites are at work to peel back the Templars work and return the world back to its wild and chaotic state. As this adventure unfolds you will hopefully discover the secrets and untamed wilds that still manage to wriggle free from the hands of the Templars. You and the party will come to learn, understand and meet many people who are in this world. What the Templars are about, what they do and why they do it. Will you help or destroy the Templars? Find out what peoples motivations are, what plots are being built and deployed are up to your discovery. I will be helping you hand in hand to delve deeper into your back stories and find truth and meaning to each and every character. Goals: •Have lots of character development •Have interesting story •Have fun •Plan to dedicate a progressive story arc to each and every person •Design the adventure and encounters to the likes of each individual •Make long lasting memories and have the characters hopefully become people of their own and be so real to us we will consider them our children How will we achieve this? I plan to follow a simple rule of roleplaying. I as the GM will be your world. I am the land, the people and basically god. I will not control any characters to represent myself as a player. You and the other members of your party will explore and live in my setting. Doing what you wish! Note!: Characters can die in this story. And there are consequences for actions. Rules: ●No god modding ●No auto hitting - i will determine factors of combat and things as such based on the detail of the action they are attempting. I will usually determine each action with the result of a die roll. Im not going to post my die rolls as proof, just trust me. More detail gives me a better idea of what will happen. ●No smut-keep this pg 13 in terms of sexual content. Blood and gore may or may not arise ●No argument with me in IC. Keep OOC to OOC. ●All rules as of this forum and the rules of the RP threads. ●No killing other players without their and my consent Character Skeleton: Name: Age: Gender: Race: Class/Occupation: Skills: (This refers to mundane skills. Such as leather working or blacksmithing.) Abilities: (Magical or Non Magical. Special things that you have attained in your line of work or occupation. Such as Lie Detection, Lip Reading, Forging Documents) Notable Atrritbutes: (What about you stands out most here? Big cuddly bear? Insane spell caster?) History: Please do not make a super special snowflake. I will be approving each and every character before allowing them into the RP. If you are adverse to sharing your character right away for what ever reason, atleast send it to me. And please do not make some one JUST to attack or harass other members of the party. You are all on this adventure together and already know each other atleast by name and face if not more. Feel free to discuss with me any questions you may have.
