Rune Factory: Tales from Frontier Village



Hello, and welcome to the official interest check for Tales from Frontier Village, a semi-sandbox roleplay set within the world of Rune Factory! I’m your host and GM, DocRock, and let’s get into things!

As far as I’m aware, this is the first proper attempt at a Rune Factory fandom tale, and honestly? That doesn’t surprise me due to its nicheness. However, dear reader, don’t fret, you don’t need to know anything about the series to join this tale. As we won’t be delving into some grand adventure of heroism and light vs. darkness, no, this tale will be much more down to earth, and grounded in realism. While there will be chances for heroics, the story won’t end with some great evil being vanquished, because frankly? That’s just not how the series works. Sure, you can save the world, but afterwards? It's back to daily life.

So without further ado, let’s introduce our setting, shall we?







Frontier Village: A stop on the Norad-Sechs Golden Road, that often acts as the last point before the Norad side of the border. Contains the basic qualities needed for a village, but doesn't stand out that much otherwise. Has a few dungeons nearby, and a few folks who ran out of money and couldn't keep traveling, so they settled in here. Or have their reasons for staying here. Even with the world at peace, this town’s status can make things...tense.

That’s pretty straight-forward, isn’t it? Either you’re a long or short term resident, or you’re just passing through on your way to the border, or deeper in. Plenty of room for mystery, fun, and adventure. Now I’ll admit, this isn’t the first RF themed narrative to deal with border towns(just look at Rune Factory 1 and 4), but I’ll be honest, that’s because it's something familiar to work with. Everyone has their secrets, their backstories, and that’s to be the point of the narrative. Sure, there will be larger GM planned and player participated backdrop stories, but this is a tale of village life. Further details, such as the first overarching storyline, will be on the actual roleplay post OOC.

Now I’m sure you’re wondering “what can I do as a character?” And well, just about anything is possible within the verse, and a link below leads to the World of Rune Factory Wiki, which does a decent job of explaining stuff regarding overall world details, if you absolutely want to dig into deeper stuff.

https://therunefactory.fandom.com/wiki/World_of_Rune_Factory

That said, here’s a quick list of the races you can be, with a blurb about them. Restricted/forbidden races will be noted, as well as the why. I know, why say anything is possible, but then restrict stuff? There’s a fair reason, I promise. I’ll probably come up with some custom races to fill out the usable races.






Double posting since it fits both areas.
Edit: Forgot the wiki link, this has been fixed.

Wonderful, really. Do either of you have ideas for what you might want to make character wise? Never hurts to have an actual idea before the IC goes up, y'know.

I have an idea. I wanted to make a shapeshifter character and I have an idea to go along with it. Btw can our characters know magic but are extremely inefficient with it, because they lack the magical aptitude?

Anyone in Rune Factory can use magic, its just a matter of whether they put the effort forward to train, or if they have magical reserves greater than the average person. So you want to do a doppleganger? Also, you should make an introduction post in the introduce yourself tab when you can.

If you mean the CS part, Jerk wrote it actually, he helped me out a fair bit.

Its just: Do you have a notable skill for magic? And if so, what affinity?

Well my character has an affinity at fire, it's just that she sucks at utilizing it. It would come out at extreme bursts or small sparks.

What's the elemental affinity you wanted to go for?
@OtomostheCrazy
Well, I'm quite glad I piqued your interest! Do you already have something in mind, or are you waiting to see what others post?

Well, with the current group, that's six people. While I'd be really happy with ten, so we have plenty of folks doing stuff with each other, folks are already putting together ideas. With that said, I'll probably see about getting the OOC up by the end of Thursday. Since I've got some college work I have to do. I'll be working on it and my own sheet later. Not sure what I'll be playing yet, I have some ideas, but I also wanna see what you fine folk who haven't already shown me ideas have in mind, tbh.

Sure, include Jerkchicken, since he's the current other GM who will be helping me(if we get enough folks I'll probably bring a third on).

Additionally, as a temporary link, here's our Discord server! Pardon the dust, we made it on the fly for Mangrale to help us chat about stuff, back during the early planning stages.

Kinda both. I have a few ideas, but I want to work off of what the others have and don’t have
