In the beginning, there was Terra. Certainly, its inhabitants may have called it something else; perhaps their word for "Blue" after the sky, or perhaps their word for "home", or simply "place". All the same, just as it is now, there was Terra. According to its wisest scholars and historians, Terra has seen three ages, each divided by Terra's slumbering for a hundred-hundred years. Though our oldest history is lost to time, modern advancements made in the field of archaeology tell us much about Terra's past cycles -- Denizens of the first age were each extraordinary builders and architects, constructing great stone homes and fortresses, while their descendants of the second age were skilled scientists who engineered the ancestors of today's races. The races of the Third Age.

Ours has been an age of peace. There are Kings, but not so many that they have yet fought over lands. There are warriors, but no armies yet to join. There are demons, but none so foolhardy to wake them. Terra, for all its forgotten ruins and ancient mystics, is relatively new. The radiation of yesteryear has long since settled to the dark corners of the world, and life has flourished in its absence. Pockets of civilization exist, but they are few, far-between, and rightly fearful of the world outside their walls. Terra is a land where ancient horrors dwell in the glowing seas, where fearsome giants pillage small villages with impunity, and where the weak are picked off by pterodactyls if they cannot protect themselves with a sufficient fort, sword, or shield.

I am interested greatly.
I am not sure what race I shall take on, but I assure you I will make love to a fishman come hell or highwater.

Woah, def interested in this! Amazingly I was just playing with an idea in this same vein, talk about weird synchronicity.

May just be me but your idea also reminded me of Robert E. Howard, which is always good!

Edit-My lord, you must be some kind of wizard @World of Terra, never seen a header image that changes like that. Really cool.

I really love the premise, and would like to proclaim interest in this! In fact, I already do have a character in mind... A craftsman of sorts whose goals are to create advanced weapons capable of facing the unknown and most likely oversized terrors that have become prominent in the world.

Interested in this, a Beastfolk sounds like something I can make work.

Edit: @World of Terra Beastfolk magi a possibility?

Glad to see all this interest. Currently working on a character sheet. For those of you into that sort of thing, PM me for access to the discord server. Launch is scheduled for 2/3/18.

@MissCapnCrunch@DeadbeatWalking@T Risket@Cu Chulainn@Tenslashsix@Heat
For your consideration, here is the complete character sheet. Those of you writing magically based characters might have to make more edits because I'm still figuring out the rules of magic, and because I know I want it to be rare, magical sheets will be judged with a bit more scrutiny.

Also, the third section of the sheet should only include relationships other characters could reasonably tack on to their sheets, such as ex-wives, rivals, siblings, adventuring partners, and so on. The first "plot" of this largely sandbox world will be reasonably bringing our characters into one or two groups, depending on if there is a strong divide between nocturnal and diurnal sheets.

This definitely looks interesting. Sort of reminds me of Gamma World. Not sure what sort of character I'd play, but I'm leaning more towards a green or an elf. I'll decide once I have more info.

@World of Terra
I am not on the discord to often but I check this site quite regularly-whenever you have more specifics on magic could you post them on here? Even if its a brief little summary I would totally appreciate it! I don't necesserily think my character himself will be using magic but it still might heavily be involved in his past, so I would just love some details to make it easier to flesh things out a bit.

@World of Terra Let me know if this is too crazy, but if you are game to let me try it I will keep it reigned in. Not trying to be ridiculous just really been waiting for a chance to play this character.

Edit: I just realized I could possibly make a character I have been dying to play for a long time. Will get up some art and ideas shortly. Someone tell me to calm down because I feel like I am about to foam at the mouth I am so amped up about the idea.

A large sentient Tortoise-folk that is part stone part moving earth. He can talk and like most Tortoise-folk he can stand on his hind legs but for the sake of the creatures who live upon him he walks on his eight legs.

Tree on the shell similar to this with a bit more shrubbery.


Four sets of legs with "fingers" like so.


For size.


Instead of magi I am thinking of a small bevy of mutated/irradiated woodland creatures that live on his shell that he controls telepathically. A few talkative ravens with metallic appendages, rock squirrels that are phosphorescent, a half honey badger half poisonous porcupine, and the alpha woodland creature a chameleon Chousingha.

@World of Terra - This rp has caught my curiosity. I find the various available races along with the fantasy-esque Fallout scenario quite interesting.

Would a subgroup of Plantfolk, the mushroomfolk, be acceptable as a species for a character?

@A Lowly Wretch Certainly!
@Tenslashsix Interesting concept! Although only one image can be used -- perhaps a turtle-y headshot -- I do not see why you could not include all those details in a character, so feel free to start on the sheet with that base!

@World of Terra Just wanted to give my concept some scope for the GM to make sure it was acceptable. Awesome. I will select an image and start crafting a character. Very much looking forward to this game!

All other interested players, I am thinking for my Tortoise-folks backstory it would be best if he had an adventuring companion who convinced him to wander abroad. If anyone is interested in collaborating on backstory let me know.

@World of Terra - Excellent. I should have a CS written by tonight.

@Tenslashsix - Such matters will be easier discussed once I have the rest of my character's CS fleshed out first.
