Tales from Frontier Village



Frontier Village. A minor, yet important spot on the Golden Road from the Kingdom of Norad to the Sechs Republic. People from all sorts of walks of life pass through this rural village, some with purpose, some just wandering, and some...they don’t know themselves. As the final town before the border between nations, it’s not uncommon for merchants to spend the night, before beginning the final leg, to make sure they reach the border checkpoint nice and early. But it’s just as common for people to end their journey here, either running out of money and unable to go onward or were turned back and lacked the cash to go back, or had other reasons for being here. Everyone in Frontier Village has a story to tell, some less willing to tell than others. What’s your story, and what will you make of your life here?

Hello, and welcome to the official Tales from Frontier Village: A Rune Factory Roleplay’s OOC, I know some of you have been waiting in anticipation, and some have just seen this and decided to check it out. While this is yes, a fandom roleplay, as I noted on the Interest Check, you do not need to know anything about Rune Factory itself, as both this post, and some posts in the IC, will give you the basics you need to know. As this is a “self-contained” and “semi-sandbox” narrative, the players have the freedom to make any number of character types, without fear of having to worry about anything too serious. It is my intentions for this to be an ongoing narrative, with multiple plot threads, some run by me and my co-GM @Jerkchicken , others managed by you. There will be random “events” and occasional festivals.

As this is meant to be semi-sandbox, there’s no chosen one, no super hero destined for greatness. Keep that in mind when making your character. Unless you make a character who has been living in the town for awhile, you will be starting from ground zero. Sure, you may be an Earthmate, or famous elsewhere, but you’re going to have to prove yourself to the locals that they can trust you, and that you can be a valuable part of the community. Additionally, while we would advise you make denizens or new arrivals to the town, you can make travelers who are passing through, as there is a narrative I’ll be preparing that will effect the ease of travel between nations. So with that said, let me go over a few more things, before you can start submitting your character sheets.



That all aside, I’m going to just repost the lore I included before on the Interest Check, along with races. The lists will be updated and changed regarding races as time goes on. If anything, I may devote a post or two in the IC to more detailed culture stuff. If players really want that. Though the following link should suffice.

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




And now, the Character Sheet. If you have any questions about this, please do ask.



If this was a lot to take in, whoops. Again, whether you’re a long time fan, new, or just looking for a fun fantasy slice of life where anything and everything could happen, this is for you. As this is casual, I’m only going to ask for a paragraph or two, but what I will ask for is that it be enough for another rper to work off if they’re interacting with you. No one liners. First posts(character intros), can be as long as you feel is needed, if you want to interact with someone at the end of said intro, just make it clear. Hope this is compelling enough to those who read, and I look forward to seeing your sheets!

I'd say that the majority of his secret backstory is complete and has been shown to the GM, give or take some details. I can hold off moving it forward until such specifics are settled.

@Kazemitsu@Mangrale
Both of you are fine with your current characters in my consideration, however, once @jerkchicken has time to make sure all is good, then you two may post into the character tab.

Once I've had time to finish assembling somethings, I'll begin working on the IC Zeroth, and the first post. After that, all players can begin posting. The Zeroth post will probably be ready by the end of the week, the IC Weds night, since it'll be easier to write in comparison.

For all players, I'll be posting a character sheet here for myself, though details are still being hammered out. It'll be moved to the character tab after I'm sure its ready. GMs not above the players when it comes to character making after all.

To upcoming players, a permanent Discord link will be added tonight, as I'd forgotten to add that before. You can join to plan out ideas with your fellow players, whether with your own characters or with interactions between others. I've gotta get back to some assignments, so I'll talk to you all later.

I am hashing out the finer details in a Guild-side PM with the GM. Once I feel it complete enough, I could message you in a manner of your choosing, if you wish. Here or through Discord.

I'll confess, while I had the "role" of innkeeper/bartender more or less decided upon, the actual face behind it hadn't yet been decided, as I was having a bit of trouble making my mind up. That said, I do hope you enjoy, as I finalized this fellow earlier. You're all more than welcome to critique me on how I did, harsh as you like. After all, we're in this together, no?

Interested, just to ask before I start penning down a CS, do elves live longer here?

From what I checked the games don't seem to mention any lifespan differences. They're basically humans that have a better mystic connection to stuff.

Hello. It does mention always recruiting / accepting, but I prefer to ask first to make sure.

Are you still searching for players? I've been interested in a Harvest Moon / Rune Factory RP for a little while, so this is a golden find for me.

Howdy! Elves do in fact live longer, its something discussed briefly in RF4 with three of the characters. The one female elf you can marry worries about outliving the player, the detective is implied to have lost a partner who wasn't an elf, and the restraunt owner had one it was also implied who died badly. Sorry to be late with a response, I was out the entire day.

@SimpleWriter
Welcome! We'll be happy to have you! I'm gonna add a Discord link soon, when able.

Here's a temporary 24 hour link to the Discord. IC should be up after I get up, if all goes well. School event I'm going to be attending for a bit though, so that may be interesting.

Shibata, Hina

21




Race: Human

Occupation: General Store Merchant

Skills

Merchandising : For all her antics, Hina can become extremely serious when it's time to bargain prices.
Economy : Furthermore, the shop keeper knows more than enough about how to make a penny. Buying stuff and reselling them for a profit is the mettle of a true merchant, after all.

Equipment: When Hina leaves her shop, she more often than not carry around a gigantic backpack that carries more than what she usually needs. This way, she can store almost everything of value she might found. How a small person like her carry such a burden is still a mystery, though some have said it was through will alone...

Description: For the longest time, Hina had traveled the world with a Caravan - her Caravan actually. Just her, her wares and her horse, Milan. That was until she passed through Frontier VIllage, about two weeks ago. Not only did her Caravan broke a wheel, but Milan was no young horse anymore. Hina decided to install her shop here for the time being in order to give Milan some peace and quiet for the remainder of it's days. After which, she'd see if she packed up and left or remained. First of all, though, she had to find someone to either make her a new wheel or buy one. Generally speaking, Hina is a lively person. A ray of sun shine, if you will - but an extremely clumsy one.

Point of Interest: Hina's shop is actually her caravan. Once stationary, the thing can open up on multiple sides and even have a (quite small) second floor where Hina's bed is. As one would expect...it'S extremely packed with everything, and only Hina could manage to keep track of what she has, and how to find it in all of this mess. The shop is also extended outside, under the outside roof that open. This is mostly where she cam be found when people come to her, all smiles.

First IC is up!

Simple, unless there's something else you need to add, you're also good to go.

Everyone, information on town/village layout will be included in the Zeroth when I can.
