This is a check to see how many people would be interested in joining this once I finally complete it.

LAND OF THE LO§T




Brief Overview & Premise


"A colorless land of death and fog, that lies beyond the ocean long. Beware what lies there in fallen thrones of old...horrors from the world beyond..."
~An Old Saying~


In this roleplay, you and three other adventures have taken it upon yourselves to investigate the isle of Phavos, a large mountainous and forested landmass that lies several thousand league's to the northwest of the main continent of Irilia, from which several dilapidated ships filled with undead are rumored to have sailed. Something that technically shouldn't be possible not only since the island was abandoned over a hundred years ago due to a lethal plague that swept through the place, killing its inhabitants and plunging the once mighty kingdom that ruled over it into ruin, but also because of the passing of magic from the world.

Each of you have your own reasons for journeying to this hellish isle.

Perhaps your village was attacked by the undead and you want vengence.

Or maybe you're just in it for yourself and the years of untouched loot that may still lie on Phavos.

Or perhaps you've come simply to find some adventure.

Whatever the reason, you find yourselves on a small rickety boat that is slowly drifting further and further into the seemingly infinite expanse of white fog blanketing the dark water's before you.

After what seems like days of aimlessly floating across the eerily calm Sword Sea, the prow of your ship finally hits land...



You will face many difficult challenges on your journey to uncover the island's secrets and put the dead to rest. You and your friends may even die before making it to the end.

So what do you say? Think you have what it takes to brave the land of the lost?



Rules


Abide by the Guild's rules. Also, keep in mind that this is 18+ and not appropriate for anyone under that age.

As for the length of writing, I ask for at least a paragraph. Preferably one that adds something to the current scene or your character in some way.

I also ask that you keep track of your Battle Sheet. If you pick up an item and put it into your inventory IC, then I expect to see it in the Inventory section of your sheet in the Character's Tab.



Dice Rules


Each player will have a set amount of 530 health. No more. If this falls to 0, you die. No exceptions. Also, all rolls will be made with the Guild's dice roller and the results, with links to the rolls themselves, will be left in a summary hider at the end of your post. There will also be no levelling or skill management that you have to worry about, only health and the rolls listed below.

{{DCR's - Direct Combat Rolls}}
Combat will be handled in a turn based fashion, starting with the first person in the party and proceeding in descending order. Each player will have the ability to take one of the following actions during combat. Please keep in mind that for Direct Combat Rolls, you must roll a single D20 die and the end roll must be higher than your opponents for your action to succeed.

* Attack - Make an attack action of your choosing, i.e. a downwards strike.

* Defend/Block/Parry/Dodge - Make a defensive action of your choice.

* Counterattack - After an enemy makes an attack and it is your turn, you can choose to make a counterattack. In essence, a counterattack functions as both a defensive and offensive action at the same time as the player first parries the incoming attack (defense), before making an attack of their own (attack).

An example of this would be 'Alyssa rushes in with a vicious downward swing, her axe blade singing as it slices through the air. '(Alyssa rolls a ___) 'Lysander raises his shield and deflects her reckless strike (Start of the counterattack), causing sparks to fly as Alyssa's axe blade skids off to the side. Stabing upwards with his steel short sword (the attack portion of the counterattack) Lysander attempts to pierce through the hardened leather and cured furs protecting her abdominal area.' (Lysander rolls a ___).

{{NCA's - Non-Direct Combat Actions}}
Any action that doesn't affect your enemies or isn't directly aimed at them, such as healing. When it comes to NCA rolls, a player will make the same type of roll as they would when making an out of combat check or action. In other words, a player who wants to heal his or herself will roll a D20 die. If it lands on an 11 or above, the roll is successful. If it lands on a 10 or below, the roll is unsuccessful.

To figure out the amount of HP restored, please refer to the "Calculating Damage & HP Regen" below.

{{OOCA's - Out Of Combat Actions}}
Any action, or check, that happens outside of combat. A good example of this is when you come to a locked door. Should you choose to bash or pick its lock, then you'll have to roll an 11 or higher, with a single D20, for the action to succeed. Should you roll a 10 or lower, the action with fail with increasingly worse consequences the lower the roll gets. OOCA's can be made anytime you like and without restraint, unless your character's physical condition doesn't permit it, like being on 1 hp and trying to lift a heavy boulder as such an act is physically impossible for someone that is near death.

{{Calculating Damage & HP Regen}}
In order to calculate the damage done by your successful attacks, simply roll a D20 as usual. Then take whatever number shows up, lets use a 5 for this example, and then roll that number of D10 dice. In other words, roll a D20, then take whatever number it lands on and roll that amount of D10 dice to figure out the damage dealt.

When figuring out the HP regained from healing be it from a potion, item, or herb, the rule from above still applies, just with some minor differences. To calc the health gained, simply make an OOCA or NCA roll, depending on the situation, with a D20 and, assuming it's successful, take the number the die lands on and then roll that same number of D10 dice.

{{Item & Object Roll Modifiers}}
Certain items, artifacts, and objects in the world will give a positive or negative roll modifier to either your OOCA's, DCR's, and NCA's depending upon the situation at hand. An example of this is an iron greatsword with a frost enchantment woven into it. Such an item, at its lowest level, would only convey a +1 modifier to a players DCR and up to a +5 at its highest level.

Another example of roll modifiers could be a Cursed Amulet of Perception, which may add a +3 modifier to your OOCA rolls in certain situations to give yourself a better chance of getting an 11 or higher, but also add a -3 roll modifier to your NCA's, DCR's, or even OOCA's in some cases. It all depends on the item being used.

Please keep in mind that all item modifiers can only go up to +5 and down to -5.

{{TCR's - Tied Combat Rolls}}
Basically anytime two players make their DCR's and roll the exact same number. While rare, this can happen. When it does, each player will make another DCR and whoever has the higher roll, will have their previous action in combat succeed.




Magic & Enchanting

Magic, the channeling of one's own spiritual energy or mana for the casting of spells and the manipulation of one's surroundings, has long since passed from the world along with the ancients who once relied on it so much in their everyday lives, now only existing in the realm of fairy tales. The only form of magic left in the world that still functions as intended, is the art of enchanting. Enchanting is a very powerfull skill to have, as it allows one to use the latent mana within themselves to bind a certain element, curse, or effect into a weapon, item, piece of clothing, or armor.

The craft is difficult to master however, as it takes a large toll on the user's own spirit which in turn feeds into their physical form, causing exhaustion in the best of cases and death in the worst. As such, only a handful of people ever learn the art and even fewer live long enough to pass on their knowledge to other's.

YES PLEASE!!!

What's the difference between the melee classes? just style of battle? or is there any actual difference in bonuses or the like?
Also, can anyone heal themselves? like using herbs and the like?

To answer your question on healing, that primarily falls to the Alchemist class, but you can heal yourself should you find a potion or medicinal herb. Of course an herb would have to be prepared while a potion or healing tonic would not.

As for the melee classes, their is a difference in battle style. I might still give each one a bonus against certain enemy types. For example a thief would be more effective against smaller, lone enemies, but not hulking behemoths. That kind of thing.

No. Post that on the actual RP OOC page when I get it up.
At some point hopefully. I'm running another RP atm so I'm kind of busy.

Okay, I do have an announcement to make. I won't be getting this roleplay up and running anytime soon. You see back when I first made this check, I was focusing mainly on this one concept and idea. Unfortunately as time went on and barely any interest was gathered, I pushed this to the back burner and went on to work on the roleplay I currently have up and running right now, Rebellion. So apologies to all who showed interest recently, but it'll probably be a long while before I get this to a functional state. And before you ask, I'm not running two roleplays at once. Especially when one of those is very mechanic and detail oriented, as it would be impossible for me to give the players in each one the proper attention they deserve.

Again, I do apologize, but for now this roleplay is discontinued until further notice.

@mae & @DTHar in case you didn't see the notification.

@ZAVAZggg No worries. Feel free to ping me in the future if you ever decide to pick this up again. Best of luck with your main project!
