Dark stirrings of a nameless foe whisper within the darkness of the Blackwood. The forest pays little heed, as that is but one of many horrors that lurks among the trees and pathways long forgotten. The Barons in the north battle for supremacy as the undead rise, and Dragons prowl ever more restlessly in their lairs. Are you a merchant seeking to ply your goods in the walled towns and the rare city you might find, or are you a warrior seeking payment for their blade. A mage perhaps in search for ever more power...or are you simply on the run and know that no pursuit would knowingly follow you into the deeps of the Blackwood.

Welcome friends, and well met! I apologize for taking so long to create the OOC, but it's taken a lot of information and planning to make a game that I'm hoping is my most elaborate one yet!

GM Guidelines

  • The Blackwood will be extremely open world for the players. You make the decisions, you take the risks, you set the goals. My role is to respond with the world and give voices to the NPC's and foes around you.
  • This means you are to ask me anything and everything in the OOC concerning what you want to do or if you need any more information, unless you want to keep it from your fellow crew mates then by all means DM me. The OOC is essentially where you ask me something out of character for clarification or before you make a decision.
  • Usually the answer will be 'yes' but if you're not sure you can roll, ask me in the OOC as well. If I am not immediately available, you can make your post and roll later when I get online, and we can add it to your post.
  • I expect everyone to make 'advanced' posts. Meaning 3+ paragraphs, with good grammar.
  • In your posts, you will make any regular RP post, and if you are to roll you put the dice you've used (usually a d8) and the result in a single hider below. You title the hider with what kind of roll you've made.
  • Do not post a character in the character thread until I give the ok.
  • There will be 3 applicants. Accepted, those put on the backburner, and rejections. I will let you know which you are.
  • If you don't have any dice, there's plenty of online resources so don't worry.
  • The reason this RP is +18 is because I'm a fan of Grimdark settings, so violence and cussing will be around. If a sex scenes comes up with anyone, you either fade to black or put it in DM's. Thank you.

*raises his hand to indicate a question*

How are Skayleigh born? Is it actually one of the elven subspecies mating with a giant, thereby creating a true half breed, or did the Skayleigh form by such occurrences long ago in the past and by now are a homogenous collection of people mating with their own kind just like everybody else does in the majority of cases?

Are Hurgilm trees only native to the Caelic isles or can they be found elsewhere as well?

@Fetzen The latter, and they're only native to the Isles though they respect all trees.

Well that was a quick character. Also please check the character sheet section for info on currency (forgot to add that).

I've been out of traditional RP'ing for a while, and I missed the interest check, but I was struck by a wave of inspiration, so I thought I'd put my character idea out there. Obviously it looks like there will be a lot of competition, so I won't be pinning my hopes too highly, but if this sheet helps inspire anyone else, then that works too! Without further ado...

Will do! As for the quickness of character creation, I got inspired and went with instinct. I hope you don't judge based on speed alone!

@Duck Don't worry, quickness has no basis on my sheet reviews.

@Romero Ooo neat!

I've had a bunch of people DM me so far, but if you have yet to please do so or comment here when you can so I can know who's kept interest :)

Well I'd prefer them before Monday but I won't do a hard deadline until late next week, let's say. They are pretty basic character sheets, though the goal is to impress me a bit.

I'll be putting a sheet together after my tabletop session today, unless I'm mentally drained.

@POOHEAD189 I went a different route. Torsten is a Norgardian Raider/Huntsman, submitted for your review...



@Flagg Assuming we get in, our characters are both Norgardian and could have known each other at some point.

Stay tuned today because I'll be adding a pantheon of deities to add flavor by the end of the day!

I'll start working on my sheet within the next couple of hours, assuming that I can stay out of bed for so long.
