The Prophecy OOC - Epic High Fantasy Adventure

Introduction
This is a roleplay quite beyond the regular standards when it comes to the incredible extent of details that are determined about the world in which it takes place, as well as those that will be determined before its completion. But at the same time as the world is elaborately defined, the plot of the roleplay offers great freedom within the bounds of the world. The main plot of this roleplay is that of an epic medieval adventure fantasy tale, with major plot-points partially derived from the series novels called The Prophecy, with most details taken from the first book of the yet unpublished series The Prophecy of the Withering by L. K. Petersen aka Dark Jack (that would be me).
The style of the roleplay is that the storyline is extremely flexible, allowing the players to take their characters on detours and side-quests of their own design if they so chose, while only main plot-events are predetermined, although the outcome of these might not be. The roleplay will, aside from the main adventure-element, also have elements of war, and it offers the freedom for the players to even make it a semi-social roleplay in which their characters may develop relationships, and even marry and have children, as long as it does not cripple the plot for the rest of the players.

The Nomad's Prophecy
The prophecy spoken by the Nomad at the end of the Age of Darkness, just before he disappeared and was never seen again. "The Foe" is presumed to refer to Kreshtaat, the Lord of Darkness and the leader of all demons of the Lower Plane.

Once there shall be a disaster like never before,
Which will shame the rich and crush the poor,
Because even with the Spirits on our side
Break, will the once-great Divide.
The land in the middle a curse will suffer,
That will turn father on son, sister on brother.
Lives will wither away and be gone,
A darkness will shatter all hope as we know,
In the lands of sand, in the lands of snow.
In the end, this evil will have spared none.
A new Age of Darkness will arrive,
And will try to mortals their freedom deprive,
Gods and demons, locked in eternal battle,
And mortals in the middle, the helpless cattle.
But amidst what is already bad,
There is a greater evil to be had.
The Foe will rise once more,
Step onto a world covered in gore.
Unless all unite against this beast,
He will upon the world return to feast.
Death it is, a being of madness,
Of power unmatched rage and sadness.
Pray, for fate will truly be grim,
The Foe will end this world on its whim.


Additional details about the Planes (The Prophecy-universe) are available in the Compendium.

Guidelines
I realize that many of these guidelines are probably superfluous, but bear with me; it is better to be safe than sorry.
- All character applications are posted in this thread.
- No godmoding. Don’t go around and controlling other people’s characters, that’s just annoying.
- No instant death. Actually links to the previous rule, since it requires that you control another character to kill it. Another player-controlled character can only die if the RP'er agrees beforehand.
- Kissing, hugging and such is allowed, and so is mating to a certain extent – but do NOT go around and describe the entire act of mating. If anything, make a time-skip from when the act begins to when it ends. We don’t want any vulgarities here. Take it to PMs if you really need to type it out.
- While there are no direct limits on how powerful your character may be, nor what race it can be, please refrain from being completely invincible. Remember, there are others playing here too. If your character is too politically or personally powerful, I reserve the right to require you to change the character or outright deny it.
- Posting is not allowed until I have approved your character.
- Each IC post should maintain a decent length and should offer at least some development for your character or the plot. The current minimum length of IC posts is two proper paragraphs, but I retain the right to change this at any time. The quality of your writing should be at least borderline advanced.
- Once it is your turn to post, please at least give a situation- and/or progress-report if you are delayed from posting by a week, and another periodically at least once a week from then, if the delay becomes extreme. If you expect to be unable to post for two weeks or more, please tell us in advance.
- If you find yourself unable to post for a long period of time (a month or more), please consider allowing for your character to be carried during your incapacitation, preferably while giving relatively brief and manageable instructions on how to handle this OOC.
- Communicate. If there is any doubt as to which player is the next to post, please address this doubt OOC as soon as possible; ask if the other player intends to post rather than waiting to see if they will. In fact if you have questions in general, don't hold back: a question asked is potentially a mistake avoided.

I'm here. To recap, I have retrieved about 755.5 IC posts, the Compendium as it was when the site went down, and a portion of the OoC containing some of the bits detailing the world further and some of the character sheets. I might get a few more pieces out; I'm not quite done yet.

Yeah... And I must also say that I haven't found any better roleplaying site, neither by myself or amongst the ones people pointed out... And as far as I have understand, the others I spoke to (I couldn't get to everyone before the OoC was posted) are fairly impartial towards the location, too, as long as the RP goes on.

(Btw, I would still like to see the current - as of where the IC was left when RPG disintegrated - situation with the Companions and the gods resolved, preferably played out. I was merely suggesting resolving it before the official relaunch of RPG / continuation of the RP, as a sort of collaboration between myself, Jack and Hymusia, perhaps... Which was something that couldn't quite happen without Hymusia. Hymusia, where are you? We need you and Thaler...)

Here as well. I /might/ have I'on's CS, but I kind of doubt it. So I'll likely have to totally rewrite him, but hey my grammar, spelling and writing has improved since I wrote him sot hat might be fun lol.

I kind of agree with Shien, that'd be nice to finally really be in the story with the companions.

Also, I think I saw one of our other members when I was going through the list. The one who played the assassin who was in Zerul, I forget his name. So yeah guess, for now, it's just Shien, Jack, whatshisname, and Ashgan. Oh, I also know that Syn is around here somewhere, if that means anything.

I have everyone's contacts besides that of Hymusia and sartorous, so the situation is not at all bleak. (And I informed Mercinus - playing Ixion, who's the assassin - as well as everyone else the OoC is up.)

Now, we just need Hymusia (and possibly sartorous), and the group's together.

Yo guys, the jolly reaper's back! Holy shit, it's been too long, it has. I'm really happy to be back in your midst. Woo!

As for the matters to be addressed: I am kind of impartial to the forum choice as well, admittedly. After the fall of RPG, every forum feels foreign to me either way, this one as well as all others. So long as the general color scheme of the site is dark, I don't really care too much which one it is, as I'll have to settle in regardless. That said, this place seems to meet the requirements, even though its feature list is (as of yet) pretty underwhelming. It's bound to improve though, and I did like RPG quite a bit, so I think supporting it may not be the worst idea.

Story-wise, yeah, I don't mind continuing where we left off, because it's a fairly important moment (and day in general) for Jillian, and I would be happy to see it to its conclusion. What we do with the following days remains to be seen I guess. Speaking of character sheets, I'll probably edit, if not fully rewrite mine. I still have it, but it's horribly outdated in many ways; it was written quite a few years ago, and I firmly believe I can nail the style better. On top of that, the sheet does not correctly represent my character anymore with how she's turned out after all, so I would need to adapt it either way. Those are enough reasons for me to give it a face-lift. I'll submit it once we are settled on a forum and I've had the time to get work done. Until February I'm still somewhat busy, but hopefully I'll have decent spare time after that, at least until March-April (when Dark Souls 2 releases and my lift slips between my fingers like sand).

All said and done, I once again want to emphasize just how thrilled I am to see the Prophecy and its people once again. Let's keep the torch lit folks, for it's a flame worth kindling.

That was some overwhelmingly quick responses! Thank you. I just really hope that we find Hymusia, or that she finds us/this site and thread. And naturally it would be nice if sartorous appeared, too. And I have noticed Merc's name on the member-list during my searches for Hymusia as well, so we are actually almost reunited. Bodes well for the RP. I'm glad.
It seems as though there is overall indifference among us as to where The Prophecy is going to be based, so for the moment this site will do fine. It seems as though nearly everyone have things to do for the moment, but in the meantime I'll get start preparing the OP and Compendium for re-posting.

(The Dark Souls 2 release is soon? Hmm... time to save up some money for a new game, I think.)

EDIT: OH MY GOD YOU POSTED WHILE I WAS WRITING: HYMUSIA!!! Oh god, oh I am so happy... That's a huge load off my mind. Shien and I have been trying to find you for days to try to organize a reunion. And here you are, just under a different name! Yes, damn it, yes and a hundred times more yes, we want you back. The crew is back! The Prophecy has been restored! YAY!

And we are all here ... besides sartorous, anyway (Merc is around, too, I know - spoke to him earlier today). Glad you made your way back here, Hymusia, since after having combed through the entire 'net and the bottom of the sea atop of it I didn't have any ideas where else to look.

(And, just as I said in your introduction-thread, could I have some means to contact you other than this site? It is always better to have those kinds of things double, just in case... I don't think you use the Skype-account under hymusia anymore? I tried adding you on there since I remembered seeing it listed in your profile in the old RPG, but to no avail.)

Ah I must have lost that one, I found Skype did bad stuff to my pc, which is weird I know but it would crash whenever I used skype. You can (everyone can) get me on kuura@hotmail.co.uk thats my main e-mail addy or add me to Facebook if you want just look for Vanessa Robinson my profiles black and white and I'm the 'near london/uk' one.

Edit: Also I'm out a good portion of tomorrow for my sisters birthday but if there's anything I can do to help get this back on its feet message me anywhere and I'll do what I can :)

Okay, have your mail; remembered and noted down. (Facebook, however is continuously the root of all evil; don't use it if you can.) And yes... Skype isn't quite what it used to be back before MS bought it. It has never crashed a computer of mine, but it itself dies often and irregularly ever since it changed owners. Then again, it is a mainstream IM and often the only one people have so I have embedded it into another UI and simply restart it every time I notice there are suspiciously few people online.

By the way, I have something in the works for you. Let's see whether I can get it done by tomorrow evening.

Haha facebook is indeed the root of all evil and I use it as little as I can to keep in contact with the people I know world wide. :)
I didn't know skype had changed hands but it makes sense now.

If all things that happened on Facebook stayed on Facebook (and were actually deleted when you deleted them, which isn't the case), then I wouldn't mind it that much - FB, however, is not Vegas, and therefore it comes with a plethora of all sorts of trackers and other funny things attached. I have had my share of nuking those...

(And yes, I have something in the workings. You'll see. Soon.)

Now that I am finally back home and internet is working. I'm here to let everyone know that I'm still here and still able to run with Ixion (will need to find his character sheet again in the meantime). It's good to see everyone again :)

And with the way the forum is restarting, I might start up one of my RPs and see what happens from there.

EDIT: As far as I am aware, I honestly don't mind where Prophecy will be hosted.

Updated the OP. Also, here is Jaelnec's CS, just to get that out of the way as well:

Name: Jaelnec
Age: 20 years
Occupation: Recently named Squire of the Will.
Race: Nightwalker
Gender: Male
Appearance: 5' 11" tall, well-muscled, but compact, and has the appearance of a sixteen- or seventeen-year-old human. He has almost impossibly black, yet warm and kind eyes, and no visible growth of facial hair. His chin is shapely and his jaw is broad, and he has thin red lips. His nose is perhaps a little too long to be handsome, but it is narrow and generally appealing. His hair is a luminous shade of golden-blond, smooth and is shoulder-length.
He usually wears ordinary black trousers and a white shirt, though the latter is hidden behind a cuirass composed of numerous small overlapping ghiril-scales, shifting between hues of purple and golden depending on the light. He also wears brown leather boots and gauntlets, and used to wear a long black coat that reaches to his ankles, and which he almost always wears open in the front. He has a wide-brimmed grayed hat, a leather belt and an additional shoulder strap, going diagonally from left shoulder to right hip, containing (when it is full) eight throwing knives of alchemical silver.
He wears a dagger of steel in a sheath by his right hip, and an exquisite longsword called Roct in a scabbard on his left, with a silvery blade and a hilt with a guard artfully formed as extended dragon-wings, the dragon's tail wrapped around the handle, and the blade seemingly spawning from flames spewed from the tiny golden dragon's jaws.
Since then his coat was first ripped by goblin claws, then lost, and now replaced by a brown linen cloak. His calves and lower thighs have received a number of cut-scars, and after his first pair of trousers was torn apart, he changed to another, similar pair.
Skills: Although having no training - or talent - with magic at all, Jaelnec has undergone long and intensive training on swordplay and fighting in general, rendering him an excellent swordsman, a superior fist-fighter and a quite capable knife-thrower. His general fighting style is to rely on speed and mobility over raw strength, as the occupation he was training for - Knight of the Will - would inevitably lead him into battle against monsters against which even the strongest blow would be useless unless a weak point was targeted.
Aside from his fighting-abilities, Jaelnec has a great deal of knowledge on a lot of subjects in Rodoria, including the basics of how magic work, the nature of various monsters and the geography of the land, as he has not only accompanied and watched his master, Freagon, over the past ten years of training, but also studied in a library of the deo'iel.
Since it has turned out that Jaelnec has some kind of guardian entity, although virtually nothing is known about this being aside from that it is apparently extremely protective about Jaelnec and is capable of possessing his body, though this process seems very painful. The entity has also been described as having an enormously powerful soul, and as being blind to the material world, as it instead sees the spectral image of the world, allowing it to see others' souls, but not their appearance.

Name: Thaler.
Age: 40 years. (appears early-mid thirties)
Occupation: None at present.
Race: Daywalker.
Gender: Female.
Appearance:
[hider= Contains pictures for those who want a better idea] [img=http://files.abovetopsecret.com/files/img/sy50cdff73jpeg] - Her eyes and face.
[img=http://www1.artflakes.com/artwork/products/255150/poster/e7149ed4a12b2af6dbdb78f7643f21fe.jpg] -Body type and skin tone also quite like how she holds herself currently. [/hider]
Standing at no more than five feet and four inches she is a dainty looking thing though considered an oddity if not a ‘freak’ in the places she visits. It’s not hard to tell she is utterly blind by her eyes, which she usually keeps covered in towns and cities, the purest shade of opal white from corner to corner, devoid of pupil, iris or any other identifying feature. Her somewhat alien look was not helped any by the fact she had little pigmentation in her skin, leaving her pale with slightly blue hued lips similar to that of a corpse and short, chin length white hair that often was slightly disheveled and wispy.

Due to a run of bad luck currently she is wearing an over sized coat, shirt and skirt as well as her own boots.

She owns a sword cane, currently without its sheathe made by a talented and clearly loving hand from folded metals with a wooden handle that is worn with wear, unlike the blade. It is kept ‘safe’ by a cloth wrapping making it much slower than usual to draw and hard to put away again.

Skills:
Sword dancer- Light, rapier style weapons are her forte, she handles them well and with aplomb to the point few aren’t left doubting her true level of blindness. She is dexterous enough to pull of what may be impossible for both larger people and weapons.
The Voice- True words are dangerous things and she has to be careful, while she has a ‘corrupted’ form of these words they are incredibly draining and can, with practise, be resisted or shrugged off easily. She can not (or as yet to try) words that can kill as despite her reputation she tries hard not to be a killer, though single worded commands that put her subject in no immediate danger are usually irresistible the first time.
Sight beyond sight- A gift, or a curse, she can ‘see’ but in no human way, the echo’s and vibrations of the world project brief and distorted images, allowing her to move around with some ease. The louder something is the more ‘pulses’ are sent and the images become almost overwhelming if she tries to concentrate which is why she prefers the quiet or rooftops. In quiet areas (woods and the like) she has a low resonance ‘click’ sound she makes with her tongue which helps her identify objects and what they’re made of.

Notes:
-Lost her father from age and her mother to murder.
-Joined a bandit camp and ‘crushed’ on their leader.
-Bandit camp were all slaughtered by a mercenary group who adopted her.
-Spent time with the mercenary group but doesn’t speak of what happened with them.
-Went solo and became a thief/acquirer of interesting things and settled down in a small village.
-Ran into the rag tag group at the ruins of a church.
-Quit being a thief at the request of said group.
-Recently has found out the voice in her head is Rilon and agreed to become his champion.
-Recently had to betray Rilon and watch her friends get brutalized and two gods duked it out in her head/on a battlefield.
-Currently in a mental/emotional limbo.
