Saencila, The Land of Senses. A Land where the five senses are pure and holy. A Land rich in long lost history. A Land shrouded in myths and legends. Twice the land was struck by great Evil. Twice the land fended it off. Locked away, in the Isle of Sensory, great evil lies in wait. Sealed away, in the vast Dead Sands, great evil lies in wait. Two evils long forgotten. Two evils once beaten. Two evils not truly defeated.

Saencila, The Land of Senses. A Land of five great nations. Two Nations wrapped war. To the West, The Nation of Sight. A nation of great arts. A nation of great treasures. A nation at the mercy to a neighbor far greater. At the center, The Nation of Touch. A nation of great craftsmen. A nation of great might. A nation ruled by a despicable new Emperor. Eager for war. Eager for power. Two nations lost in war. One nation cries for help. A forgotten evil answers. A new dark age will soon arise.

Saencila, The Land of Senses. A Land with an impending disaster yet to come. A land with a sole remaining active evil. An evil hidden in plain sight. An evil bidding it's time. An evil answering a cry. An evil about to strike. The Isle of Sensory, before too long an evil will soon be unlocked. The Dead Sands, before too long an evil will soon be unsealed. Four mystical artifacts long lost. One mystical artifact long in use. Without them Saencila cannot know peace. Without them forgotten evils will rise again. Without them all hope is lost. Without them... Without them... Saencila, The Land of Senses. No more will it be. No more will it be.



Please note that this is a slow paced RP


Roleplaying is a hobby, not a job. You are allowed to have your own life ;)

Our usual pace is one or two people posting a week. Sometimes more. Sometimes less.

New people are always welcome. Fortunately I have a built in character that allows people to more easily integrate with the story.

We do have a discord. The address will be handed out on approval of your Character sheet.



What's currently being worked on

As of September 2, 2019

Coming to the end of day three for Arc one.

The Rulezz

0 - The GM has the final say if an argument occurs. It's okay to argue if you think something is wrong, but if the GM says an argument is over then it’s over.

1 - Please use Common Sense.

2 - Your character sheet should contain all info on your character’s abilities. If you want something to be a secret from other players, PM them to me. We can sit down, have a cup of virtual coffee, and talk about it. Basically, no pulling abilities out of thin air.

3 - You are allowed to have multiple characters if you want to, but don’t go overboard with them.

4 - Certain abilities I may feel to be too powerful to have. Teleportation, Immortality, Invisibility, Mind Control, Telepathy, Telekinisis are a few. If you really want a power that might be considered powerful if unrestricted. PM me we'll talk and see if there's a way to nerf it.

5 - All magic abilities, however should somehow relate to one of the five senses. Whether this is done by using one of the senses to activate the magic or as a fuel source, it doesn't matter. You want to shoot fire? Cool! you tie that ability to one of the senses and you're good to good. What's that? you want to turn your hands into bear claws. That's fine. Maybe you can fuel it with one of your senses. Consider it a magic writing exercise. I will work on one generic magic system for each sense. You can either use it for a character or just use it for an example to work off of.

6 - Like all of us adults, I live a busy life, please be aware of this. I'll put in as much time as I can to be there and respond to your questions. Please be patient if you don't get a response immediately.

7 - Have fun.

Was reading the interest check and I'm really interested!

Small question about technology levels.

Welcome and hello 13org! Kingdom Hearts reference by chance?

That's a good question. Alright so tech-wise I haven't done a deep dive into what was available around when cannons were invented but we can start with cannons as our basis for technology (The Metal Fireworks weapon mentioned towards the end of the prologue are meant to be a description of a cannon).

Anyway, my brief google search tells me cannons were invented early 13th century, so early 13th century we can uses as our starting point. Gunpowder has recently been Invented by the Nation of Hearing so there aren't a lot of weapons that use it yet and we are some ways away from having guns. The tech level does not have to correspond exactly with Earth's tech level was during the early 13th century. Spectacles were created in the late 13th century which is within range. The one invention that I mentioned which is not in range however are spyglasses (17th century I think). I obviously didn't do my proper research there, oops. I figured if they have spectacles, then why not spyglasses? Oh well. Anyway that just means better quality glass-work can be a thing. If you are unsure about certain technology, just run it by me.

Let me know if that helps.

I’m working on writing up some stuff for a character. :P

Am I missing a character application skeleton somewhere, or has it not been put up yet?

Ah yes. The mysteriously missing Magic System. I was so burnt out from writing yesterday that I decided to put the last two off. I felt like the Hearing magic system suffered from that. It felt like lousily writing and not as well thought out. I wanted to give my self time before coming back to them. I'll get to work on them now. The smell magic system is a vague idea right now. The sight one is a little better thought out and I think is far more interesting.

The character sheet should be up as post number zero in the IC. That zero post thing is very confusing though I must admit. Me thinks I'll just chance it to post number 1 in the IC and just in case I'll list it here. Let me know if you can see it in the IC.

You're welcome to add things to it. If you want to add a race section, that fine. Just pass it by me.

Cool beans Mr. Chicken. I look forward to it! Do chickens like beans? Meh...

Anywho, an example Sight magic system is up! I really, really like this one and am glad I took a break. It came out really nicely. Also Familiars are now a thing because of Sight magic. Best part is, anyone can have one! They are expensive, however, but that's beside the point. Familiars are always fun to play with. Be sure to check them out!

Good to see you're still interested Wolf. I look forward to the CS.

On another note. Smell based example magic system is up. Probably my worst work yet, but oh well.

I'll start on two CS for myself tomorrow. One will be my primary character. The other will be a somewhat important side character of mysterious origins.

This important side character will pop in and out of the world and is capable of "cracking through the forth wall". He's going to be an experiment of mine. A fun way of bringing plot into the game without my main character necessarily being the plot. I also hope for this Cracking of the forth wall to bring in some additional comic relief. For the most part he will not directly help out our heroes. At least not in fighting or coming up with plans (depending on the situation perhaps once or twice he'll help with plans). He'll just show up and be like, hey this thing is going on. There will be story related reasons behind his existence but we won't be getting to that anytime soon. Maybe never at all depending on how long this RP lasts.

If at some point in the RP you want this character of mine to show up to make a specific type of story line kick off for your character, just let me know and we'll collaborate on something. I may just have him show up randomly from time to time, for no real reason, just to taunt and annoy one of your characters.

I've been lurking around this RP and watching it develop since the interest check, and I must say, I'm impressed with the prologue especially.

One question before I can really do anything about a CS; would alchemy be a thing at all for this RP? I was thinking of making an alchemist-type of character as a first thought, but I have other ideas in case that won't work.

Welcome and Salutations AdmriStalfos19! Thank you kindly for the compliment. To be honest I was actually surprise myself with the prologue I wrote. It came out better than I thought it would. Once I start writing, the ideas just start flowing. Sometimes it's great, sometimes it just okay, and quite often horrendous. hahaha.

Anyway, I believe there was a question somewhere in your post. I suppose to answer that question I'll need to know what exactly mean by alchemy. Do you mean like pseudo-chemist type character who doesn't necessarily fully understand what they are doing? Something more along the lines of Fullmetal Alchemist. Or something more in-between the two, like actually turning lead into gold. All three are okay, the third I would like a structure in place (I love structured magic systems), and preferably I would like the magical options to tie into the concept of a sense based magic system. I feel like touch would be a good one for that, perhaps you touch an object and feel its physical and chemical properties and then see which ones fit together like working out a puzzle. Like a hyper-enhanced sense of touch. I think something like that would be far better then the touch magic system I wrote. The one I wrote was me tying in a magic system I made long ago into this idea. Also heat sensing I think is technically another sense altogether, separate of the five, but that's okay.

Also I'm okay with magics that represents a combination of senses if that helps. Magic deterrents will still be a thing, but we can discuss how that will work.

I meant more in the generic sense of alchemy (which would probably be the third way you've stated), but now that you mention Full Metal Alchemist, I have an idea now for a character whose soul would've been transferred into what looks to be just a big suit of armor. Kind of like how Alphonse came to be. I'd still need to iron out the details on how exactly that could work in this type of setting (and that's assuming it's even possible), but that might be something we can discuss.

Lol. Depending on how it works, it seems like a sneaky way to escape the majority of the effects caused by The Discarded. I'm sure we can work that in somehow. I would like to tie it in with the theme of the RP if we can manage that.

The Discarded of Touch would give you a run for your money. Her effects distort metal into becoming glass-like and easy to shatter... but if you can turn lead to gold then perhaps you could turn metal to glass... That begs the question of what are the limits to your alchemy? Regardless, The Discarded of Touch is not set to appear for awhile, or never if the RP dies. Also Insight would only affect you if you let one of The Sightless into your mind. Unless your character has the ability to sleep or your character is already consumed by the Insight. If your character can still feel pain, then The Discarded of Hearing would also be a pain. If not then her effect would be just an annoyance. In any case very sneaky indeed. ;)

What are you thinking in regards to the cause for it? Is it a cost for using the magic system or more along the lines of enchanted equipment or a curse (we could collaborate on an in world system for such things). Is it more of a transfer of consciousness? Is your character still able to feel in such a condition? Which senses transferred with them? I would assume your character can see and hear. Would your character still have a sense of taste, smell or touch?

Going back to the question of limits for Alchemy, what are your thoughts on that? Any ideas for a system in regards to how it works?

@AdmrlStalfos19 could always go the “accidentally used some still-functioning old-world technology” route.

Perhaps some pre-apocalypse scientists in the area were working on that “download your consciousness” process, and the character activated a machine out of curiosity.

Then it would be a relatively simple matter to plug their “brain” into some sort of prototype armor or robotic exoskeleton (probably set up in the same facility).
