Between the Kingdom of Dawn and a neighbouring village lies a signpost, and a path.
[The Adventurer's Guild]

It's a little off the beaten track, but few in the kingdom could mistake where it lies. A group of adventurers known for their audacity as much as their strength--their oddities as much as their kindnesses.

Members join for many reasons. Renown, profits, or companions to fight with. It's said whatever you're seeking is possible beneath the guild emblem.

Whether you find it is up to you.



Welcome

This is an open world, adventure style rp. There are a few rules regarding character creation, but race, magic, and the history of the land are free to build upon (within reason).

Currently looking to accept three or so players to start. Decisions will be based off character sheets; not necessarily first come first serve.

@Beetlebug is my collaborator in this, and credit for the affinity symbols go to him.

Rules:
1. RESPECT THE LORE.
- Specifically, the histories and explanations people create throughout the rp.
- Do not change something without first discussing it with them.
2. Do not timeskip quests—though things like walking and sleeping are fine.
3. Main characters are to be a part of the guild or intending to join.
- Cannon fodder enemies are fine.
- Ask if you have an idea for an antagonist.
4. Unless you are Platinum or Mythril rank, you cannot do a quest solo.
5. If your character is discovered to have killed someone without sanction, they will be tried for murder by the kingdom.
- The Adventurer's Guild are responsible for 'upholding the peace' (though they have a reputation for being troublemakers). Any actions that disrupt the general public will damage the guild's reputation.


The Kingdom of Dawn



Guilds:
The Adventurer's: Best known for wreaking havoc wherever its members try to help. It was founded by the original Guildmaster as a way to avoid restrictions on abilities placed by the royal guard, and has been a thorn in the nobility's side ever since.

Shops: N/A

Other:
The Royal Guard: Serve the rulers of the kingdom, as well as keep peace within the general public. -Dislike the troublemaking Adventurers.

@TipsyonTea I have a few ideas. What sort of races are allowed? I am guessing only one character per person? Are lalafell allowed?

Sounds fun. Will there be any more lore entries about the world, kingdom, history, etc.?

Reminder we're only accepting three people to start; based of character sheet suitability over first come first serve. I'll do my best to have an example sheet up today, though you guys are free to post yours before then.

@The One
Any sort of race. Can be common ones like elves and dwarves, but also original species if you feel so inclined. Obscure mythology is a favourite of Beetle's. It'll be one character to start, though definitely more will be allowed down the track. And depends; what are Lalafell?

@DarkShadowWolf
Awesome!

@Headhunter
Ahahah, Beetlebug is like 90% of my lore impulse control. There's plenty, let me assure you, but we kept it off the intro in favour of letting you guys create your own. More background will be introduced throughout the rp.

Lol awesome! I love reading about lore, but that’s kind of you to allow more creative liberties for the participants.

I’ll be brainstorming ideas for a character and wait your example sheet before getting to work on my own.

This sounds like it could be fun. I've made a character. Let me know what you think of him.


@TipsyonTea
P.S. I hope it's alright that I don't have a picture. I find I'm much better at describing what my character looks like than trying to find a picture that looks like my character.

I dropped a pm about the idea I had for my ideal character and depending on the response I will write up a sheet. Regardless of the response, I will be posting a character shortly after.

@TipsyonTea

Still a little bit to tidy up.
Can we lower our attributes a step to raise a different one? I’m interested in being more well rounded. Alternatively could we have a different attribute bundle to pick from?

Took me awhile to get the hang of formatting... Also got a little too involved in the backstory. So much for brief. I hope this is okay. Still need to find an unmasked/unarmored pic. I’ll update when I make up my mind.

Edit: Added unarmored pic and reduced his rank to Copper.

Okie dokie. Depending on shifts, might have this arvo off (AEST+10). If so Beetle and I will choose who's starting and hopefully get an intro up.

@Dark Light
Sure thing. I picked a set bundle cause it was easier than trying to explain attribute distribution, but if you think a different, but still 'equivalent', set would work that is fine.
This applies to anyone else who wants to shift attribute levels. Like having three low, one average, two excellent. Or five average and one high.
-Hope it makes sense.

@Headhunter
Awesome! That's a wild bio indeed.

Thanks, all done now :)
If I raise intelligence to Excellent in game, can I pick up the new flame color? Keen for some ig development and learnings :D

@TipsyonTea Basically, a Lalafell is just a small human.



For attributes, what do you consider low, average and high? Are we talking at around 1-10? Or 1-20?

MY APOLOGIES GUYS. I'M BREAKING MY PROMISE. I'm going to decide characters tomorrow morning.
@Leda @Gilgex @Rhiven Knight Any final character sheets should be put up before 10 am (AEST+10).

@Dark Light
Yep, excellent intelligence allows a character to choose their second type of flame.

@Sanity43217
Had a chance to look at character sheets in more depth. While Patches is cute, the 1000 year lifespan is too much. Rather than the lives being shortened, it would be acceptable that each life is fifteen years, and what the curse took was in fact the other eight lives. Patches removing the curse would then return to the Felis their 135 year lifespan and the ability to rebirth--a miracle granted by the light affinity.

Apologies, but why would you want to convert the attribute system to numbers? That seems to over complicate it. Low is low, average is average, high is high and so on, so forth.

Character Template

Appearance:


Name: Xar'on
Race: Orc
Class: Beserker
Rank: Gold
Affinities: Special: Beast Tamer and Spirit: Body

Attributes
Strength: Excellent
Intelligence: Average
Agility: Low
Dexterity: Low
Constitution: Average
Resilience: High

Brief Backstory: Xar'on has always been considered a monster. Orcs are meant to be brutally violent creatures and that is why people attack them without any thought thinking they are just that, monsters. She has had to fight to survive constantly and she has never held back. She has never considered herself 'evil' at most she has only considered herself morally questionable. While she loved battle she grew bored of the same old trend where somebody called her a monster, attacked and then she killed them. Xar'on decided to become an adventurer herself hoping that it would show everyone that she wasn't the monster everyone thought she was. Her goal was to hopefully make friends and have them realise she isn't as bad as everyone may think just because she is an orc.

Weapons: Just a large spiked club.
Abilities: Xar'on has been on her own for most of her life and it is because everyone sees her as a monster that she has had to train and defend herself constantly. Xar'on has never focused on any fancy skills or spells. She has always focused on brute force. She uses her spirit affinity to make her attacks stronger and deadlier. It helps her put more Oomph into her attacks and swings. For her Beast Tamer affinity, she has learned to connect with some of the 'monsters' of their world. She is able to tame large predators such as hunting birds, large felines and boars easily. She struggles to tame smaller animals due to her sheer size. Smaller beasts tend to be more fearful of her. While intelligent beasts know to stay clear of her or are too smart to be tamed.
