The moderate city of Wudsmouth rests snugly at the edge of county South, permitting entrance to the kingdom of Ruwen. The bustling city holds its origins in trade. Being the mouth of The Vein – the most heavily traveled merchant road in the realm – and the closest connection to civilization outside of the Hunting Wood, it isn't difficult for the city to profit. Where there is profit there are predators.

Only foreigners call Wudsmouth by its given name. Any man that crossed the gates more than once would tell you something less endearing. The Crook’s Coinpurse. As if the threat of an underhanded deal from experienced merchants isn't enough, the city of Wudsmouth is also filled with benefactors of a sneakier sort. No wallet is safe from sticky fingers, no piteous glance left unmilked by watery-eyed vagrants with dirty faces. Despite the efforts of the Count, Ernust Wudsmouth, the crime rate has remained steady, and the thieves healthy. Rarely does a traveler leave the crowded streets unscathed.

Unable to recreate the safe streets of his father twenty years before him, Count Ernust has hired a new advisor who claims to have a plan for salvation. The whispers and dealings of this new player do not bode well for you. You, being one of the hard-working rats in the city slums, after all.

Welcome to The Aerie, home and hiding place of the Macliar (mac – lee – air) Rats, one of the largest thieving broods in the city of Wudsmouth. The Macliars are known among the lowlifes for taking in orphans and children of misfortune. Often, after coming of age or honing strong skills in the art of roguish behavior, their members will leave The Aerie to join other broods or survive on their own. Others choose to stay. Those who do are charged with teaching and caring for the younger members.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Despite the sandbox feel that this RP might give off, I want to warn any interested parties that this WILL NOT be the case. While your actions in the RP will be mostly ungoverned and open-ended, I will have predetermined events and plot points that work to drive the story to a specific outcome.That outcome is, quite simply, an ending. I have no intention of dragging out a perfectly good RP, or letting it become dried out and lifeless from the exhaustion of carrying on with no purpose.

Don't let this discourage you from participating, though! While there will be an ending, YOUR DECISIONS AND ACTIONS WILL EFFECT WHAT THAT ENDING WILL BE! So, please, I invite your effort and inspiration. I'd love to see how this one ends. Romance, slice-of-life, action, character development; Anything is a possibility.

That being said, I will be playing one (or a few) character myself, depending on the needs of the RP. However, I won't be posting a CS sheet until I know there's a decent amount of interest in the idea. I'm hoping for at least four people, but three will do. NOT TWO. I'm not looking for a 1x1.

If you have any questions just post below or shoot me a PM.

Otherwise, thanks for checking out my idea. Hope to hear from you.

I'm intrigued, hopefully this will catch a few more eyes as well. I've been itching to do a cutpurse style character for awhile now.

Is this going to be a fantasy world swords and sorcery or mostly down to earth?

Afternoon,

Thank you all for your interest! To answer your question @Tenslashsix , it will be a fantasy setting. Swords, knives, and other common weapons are most definitely available. Sorcery, while less common in Wudsmouth and the surrounding areas, could certainly be discussed.

One of my characters in a young druid apprentice with severely stunted abilities. I don't want anything magical to be more extreme than that - more extreme than the classes you might find in a D&D manual, or the ability level you'd find in a child or young adult.

I'd be happy to address any questions or curiosities about magic that are more specific, too.

I have a few ideas working - a young man who's taller and stronger than most of the other rats and functions as the Aerie's sort of 'Bouncer' is my favorite at the moment, but I have a few others that I like.

@Levex321
Any chance you could whip up a basic character sheet so we could get a head start on making our characters.

@Cairo, a bouncer. I love it! Haha

I've posted the general Character Sheet requirements below. Once we have 2-4 acceptable characters I'd love to get started.



If you want to add any additional information to the Character Sheet I've provided, feel free. If you have any questions, let me know.
I'll post the CS for my main character in this thread by the end of the night.

@Dusty Love it! Thank you so much for submitting a character, and sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

I've included the majority of my character's information within this post. Unfortunately, school and work have eaten most of my free time.. so I haven't gotten as much done as I'd like. I'm hoping to finish the remainder of his personal history tomorrow. I just didn't want to give off the impression that I'd abandoned this.

Very interesting, I was worried for awhile that nothing would come of this RP so thanks for keeping it going.

Awesome, @Sterling.

If you’re interested, we’d love to see a character sheet. Dusty’s character is definitely accepted, so I’d be happy starting with one more addition.
If others should read this and be interested later on, we could always add more characters naturally as the story progresses.

Thanks again for your interest~
