This is in the process of being made, but among other things here is the premise.

The land of Alba has been thrown into war as the Lyonesse Kingdom has invaded the Lothian Empire. Led by it’s king, Markus Lyonesse the 3rd, they march with the intent of conquest. As an ally of the Empire, the Kingdom of Reynes led by its young, and newest King, Colreye Athelbrus Reynes, leads his armies to support and honor a long-held oath and agreement.

With the Empire’s resources stretched thin, having not prepared for battle, and come fresh from a civil war, the aristocracy is anxious and desperate for help. In the castle town further out from the Lothian capital of Edinburgh, is Garleton. Here, those answering the recruiting call of the Lothian Empire arrive, along with a retinue of Reynes knights and soldiers as fortification. Here, the youngest Lothian Prince, Alnard, takes it upon himself to turn this motley gathering of people into a formidable army.


I'm currently working on the system and gauging people's interest and expectations, so feel free to place any input or ask any questions you have.

EDIT: Completed material so far. Yes, there is enough here to make a character. I am willing to look over characters now.

I am interested! It seems a lot of people are on the Fire Emblem hype train, myself included. I'll wait to ask any in depth questions until you have things more thought out on your end, but I will say I like learning about the countries/kingdoms involved. Any quick and dirty history/culture of the Kingdoms, Empire, and continent in general would be nice (at least for me personally).

The Lothian Empire has a long history of conquest and prestige, many great conquerers were Lothian emperors. However in the recent decades it has fallen to civil war or rebellions, greatly weakening the nation. While each have been dealt with, it was at no small cost, such as the loss of the eldest son and the most promising next emperor in generations. The current emperor is a coward who was born in the golden age of the empire's peace, and it ended almost as soon as he took the throne. An incompatible ruler so to speak. He's been in power for almost thirty years with an impressive record of several rebellions and three civil wars. Their territories have shrunk greatly too, though while some lands are still identified as part of the Empire, they are anything but.

The Lyonesse Kingdom was once a simple barony under the rule of ancient Lothian, but had declared its independence some centuries prior. Now it is so different a country that its unrecognisable to anything Lothian. They had harboured no misgivings towards the Empire until a dozen years ago, when an ambassador from Lyonesse was killed by Lothian forces during a rebellion they were quelling. For many in Lyonesse, war is what must happen.

The Kingdom of Reynes is often said to be the sister nation to Lyonesse, as both were once Lothian baronies. Reynes has distinguished itself for its highesr pedigree of knights and due to the countless songs of their deeds is also called the land of fables. Reynes has a history of being helped by the Empire when staving off invaders from across the seas, and wishes to return thr favor.

The other nations are Dyfed across the sea, a land of magic, and Themyscira from which many invaders have come from in the past. There's also Suddene which has a history with the Kingdom of Reynes.

There are other nations on the continent of Alba, is Zion across the Burning Plateau, and Dinas Afaraon the nation of progress.

So for those interested, I'm probably going to be using the systems in Three Hpuses as a basis for the growth system.

It won't be the exact same of course, but elements of it will be used.

I'll plop my interest down here.

I haven't really played Three Houses, but I'll do my best to keep up with whatever growth system is in place.

Well to be fair the growth system in Three Houses isn't too different from the old games, the only thing that's different is how class advance works.

In the old games if you entered a certain class, you would be stuck to the class tree. So Myrmidons would always become Swordmasters, or Archers always became Snipers.

It shook up a bit in Fates/Awakening, when anyone can reclass to something else. Although limited. Like Lucina can turn into a Pegasus Knight and reap all the benefits that come with it, for example.

In Three Houses, everyone can become anything they like, honestly it's more or less the Echoes system. However in Three Houses, in order to become something, you needed to be proficient enough in the related skills. For example to become an Archer you needed to have a certain rank in Bow, and to become an Armored Knight, you needed a certain level of skill in Heavy Armor and Axe.

In this RP we can start off at any basic class, but as the RP goes on you will get chances to divert into new professions.

Although weapon skill will actually work a bit differently here. Instead you will be picking your Talents (ie. Sword, Axe, Bow, White or Black magic).

Whatever Talents you possess will affect what classes you will have access to, should you be given the chance to change class, or advance class.

The system is almost done, but for the RP's sake I've made it my aim to streamline the growth process while giving options. Moreover since the RP does run on limited chapters, you may want to think about what you want to end up being as well.

I'll link it in this thread soon as that's done. After which I can focus on fleshing out the nations that are directly involved with the RP.

This is what I have so far.

Next is the list of classes.

EDIT: This is the class line-up so far. It will be updated later with things such as abilities and weapons.

So our performance in battle nets us EXP points (distributed by you, the GM, I assume?), which we then spend to strengthen our character? Sounds fine. Would we be relatively free to write any backstory in regards to the world info you posted above, so long as we start as one of the listed starting classes? To clarify - must our characters be from Reynes, or can they be from the Empire, a neighboring country, or even Lyonesse? Also, would anything from commoners to nobility be free to play?

They can be from anywhere, but it requires you to have answered the call to arms. It's not just a chance for citizens to fight for their home, the Lothian Empire, but also a chance for mercenaries or soldiers of fortune. So if you're not a citizen of the Empire, then you're likely a mercenary, either from the empire, another one of the other nations, or even overseas in say Dyfed or Themyscira.

Your character can also be one of the soldiers stationed at Garleton, be they Lothian or Reynes.

Naturally though there are limitations, such as being a Lyonesse soldier is not possible... At this point in the RP at least.

As the RP goes on, there will be chances to create characters of different backstories. For example, once the story reaches Lyonesse territory, you can make a character who is a Lyonesse soldier, that has chosen to defect.

So to answer. Yes. They can be from anywhere, within reason.

Short update. All starting classes and basic classes have been decided and written up.

docs.google.com/document/d/1NbquLTwsl…

I may complete the Expert classes later, because what's important may be the Spells and Weapon Arts system and how I will be handling it, so I will get to work on that very soon.

Definitely.

I'll be working on the lore soon starting with the most relevant locales, so if you have questions of either the neutral territories like Zion or Dinas Afaraon, or the overseas areas like the Kingdom of Dyfed, Themyscira, or Suddene, feel free to ask.

Otherwise for Lothian, Reynes, and Lyonesse, those will be coming shortly.

The player count for this RP is pretty flexible given the plan is as we go along, more types of backstories become possible depending on where we are in the story. Death is also a thing. I'll have the rules around character creation and death up later as well.

I've not had a chance to properly read it but would Asassin be a end class? Once you reach that, you can't swap classes anymore? I was thinking of putting my character though the Myradon line, Thief line, Trickter line and then finishes off as an Assassin

Assassin is an Expert class. Although your route looks more like it should be Page > Thief or Myrmidon > Assassin > Trickster.

Thief and Myrmidon are both Basic level classes, Assassin is Expert, and Trickster is a Master class.

I'd also like to take the chance to note that you can deviate from this as long as you obtain the Talents to do so. For example you have Sword and Axe as a Mercenary, but also pick up Riding talent somewhere along the way, Cavalier or Paladin becomes open to you as well.

Obtaining your first class of any tier is free, but reclassing is not. However, you get to keep the Abilities you learn from all the classes you have used before, so if there's a class ability you really want or need, it's not a bad idea to reclass for it.

I have completed the general mechanics. Or rather this is the first draft, so please if you have any questions or input I'd be happy to hear it.

This includes Spells and Weapon Arts.

docs.google.com/document/d/1njFDowP3l…

I'll perhaps be opening up to allowing people to make their own weapon arts as well, under the right conditions.

I'll be away for at least a week starting Aug. 17th but I would love to write up a character and get it approved before I go so I can quickly jump in if this RP starts while I'm gone. Can I PM you a sheet (with some character related questions) @Sho Minazuki?
