Current Stupid #%#%! hinge broke on my main laptop. Since my work laptop is strictly for that purpose, I may be away for a few days, starting as early as Friday. Need to get the left hinge repaired.

My internet was on and off these last few days. Hopefully, I fixed the problem when I told the damn company to refresh the signal. Seems like it is working now. Replies should be more frequent.

Is it just me, or the the site get really slow all of a sudden? And I'm not talking about loading times here.

I've had people drop out after an RP has begun, but to have several people tell me they want to start an RP, develop it a bit, and disappear without a word before it even begins, that's a new one.

I've got a lot of RPs in the process of starting, but few new ones are actually starting. Like it wraps around to the beginning of the process. I'm trapped in a time loop. Help!

Bio

Hi there! I've been roleplaying for years, mostly in fantasy-type RPs. I don't like giving out too much about myself, but I am an adult living in New York City (that's in the Eastern time zone, if you don't already know.) Recently, I have been busy working, although I graduated from college and grad school a while back.

Funny, but this is OOC. No need to RP it here. :)
@Shadow Dragon

Well, you are playing a wraith, so... :D
Hi there! Love your avatar. You'll fit in just fine around here.

A servant came and brought Ardasa a glass of cool water. Ternoc nodded at her comment about having been a child just last year.

"Truly? While there are rites of passage for dracons, the line between child and adult tends to blur a bit, especially for males. Female dracons are unquestionably adult by age 18, but young males usually need to prove themselves at that age before they are fully respected as adults by older males. Or wait until they are 25 years old, at which point they are fully grown, and there's no point in denying their malehood. Also, I would advise you not to call your realm an empire. It may provoke retaliation from other dracon realms if they consider it an expansionist state, as empires generally are."

Ophion was a mage of great renown. As an ally of Adykon and a friend to the great priest Vespion, he had played quite the important role in stopped Dememoras two decades ago. Working in his laboratory, he scried the city of Minbenthac for any possible threats, including invaders, demons, or the undead. To his surprise, he detected a wraith floating around in the city's back alleys. It wasn't unheard of for necromancers hiding in the city's catacombs to mess around in the middle of the night, but it was broad daylight. Something was quite odd, although he didn't see that the wraith was harming anyone in particular at the moment.

He picked up his staff and prepared to leave his residence, a large building which consisted of living quarters, a store which sold magical goods, a warehouse, a library, and his magical laboratory. Before he left, he stopped for a moment to tell his wife where he was going.

"Aurie! There's a wraith loose in the streets. I'm going out to hunt it down. Don't think it's dangerous, though."

"Just be back in time for dinner!" Aurescia reminded him.

"Sure thing! See you later, dear!" With that, he walked out of the residence and went to find the wraith.
This one is an RP which involves a male dracon and a woman coming together to form a family in a fantasy setting. Dracons are draconic humanoids, looking much like the guy in my avatar. Here are two reference pictures. Because of the possibility of content, I must insist that my player be a woman who is 18+.





First, magic can be used to aid in reproduction for humans and dracons, but the child is either a human with some dracon qualities, or a dracon with some human qualities, not some kind of a third race. They'd have to mate first and then apply the magic for cross-breeding to even be a possibility.

Second, if we decide to set this in the dracon realms (a land with roughly medieval technology), know that their lands are deserts which are dominated by a number of large cities, located on a fairly distant continent. It is warm there the entire year and while there is a good deal of sand, most of the deserts are rocky.

One idea is that the lady in question is a human woman with a dracon father and a sorceress for a mother herself. Her mother was a mage who was born with magical powers, and while she had to learn how to control them, spellcasting was as easy for her as using one's arms would be for anyone else. She quickly saw herself as being somewhat removed from the norms of society and began to think about what she wanted, even if it wasn't normal, and she decided that she wanted the strongest offspring she could get. The best way for her to do that was by breeding with a dragon. Since having a relationship with a four-legged beast the size of a dinosaur isn't very practical (to say the least!), she decided that the closest thing was to move to the dracon realms, find a male, and have children by him.

Some years later, the sorceress succeeded and had a number of children, human and dracon alike. Your character could be one of the adult daughters of the sorceress and may even have some magical powers of her own, if you like. She would have also picked up at least some of her mother's ideas about love and family. While those may be subject to change in the RP itself, one possibility is that the male and female of the house each have their own spheres, but neither one is truly dominant over the other. Each one is there to complete the other. This doesn't mean that all the woman would do is cook, clean, and make babies, though! It also doesn't mean the male would work all the time and ignore his kids. The idea is that they'd both live on a farm and both work there, with labor divided according to what they are best at.

For my character, this obviously involves heavy, physical labor. Being a large, strong dracon male means he can do the hard work on the farm: plowing, planting, handling large animals, etc. Keep in mind that he's close to seven feet tall and strong enough to wrestle a bull. He would be the one who owns the land, sells the surplus produce, keeps the place safe, and does most of the work in building and renovating the place, along with other males in the story. He can do more heavy tasks than a human could, being a dragon-person and all.

For the woman, she would be in charge of the household in many ways. In addition to having most control over any children they have, she'd be responsible for making sure her mate was well taken care of. That means looking after his health (making sure he doesn't overwork himself), and being the voice of reason in a heated situation. But she wouldn't just be some doting housewife, or even a housewife at all; she would also be responsible for taking care of some of the animals (chickens, goats, maybe a horse or two?), and a garden.

But this isn't just a "farm simulator." Really, the farm stuff is basically just a backdrop to the real meat of this (proposed) RP: the relationship between the characters. Although they would love each other in a real and true way, it would be the woman who is sort of guiding the situation. Like her sorceress mother, she'd be looking for the most fit male she could find and fall in love with. Basically, the largest, strongest, and toughest dracon who she has feelings for. He's have to be kind to her and love her back; it would just be physical. But once she determines that their love for one another is true, the real work begins. Her main objective in this relationship would be to have as many healthy children as possible, and she doesn't want anything to get in the way of that goal.

This means that while she loves her husband, she also kinda views him as a source of seed, food, and safety she needs to breed, feed, and protect their children. As such, she can be manipulative and make others depend on her in order to get her way. For one thing, this means sex. Specifically, she takes advantage of the fact that dracons have a higher sex drive than humans do, and she can use the offer of sex or the threat of withholding it in order to get what she wants from her husband. She'd also be the one who sets household standards for food, clothes, exercise and education (for the kids), cleanliness, and some other things.

One thing she wouldn't do is mate with a male who hasn't proven himself to her, in terms of love and strength. If we start the RP before they know each other, they wouldn't begin "doing it" right away. It would have to develop over time. That said, a strong dracon male would catch her eye, so there would be attraction from the start, if nothing else. I can get some pictures of dracons if it helps to visualize it.

Also keep in mind that I'm not trying to dictate a plot here, and you'll find that I can be flexible when it comes to changing or replacing ideas.
@Shadow Dragon@bloonewb

I will reply to both of you soon. Sorry for the delays!
@Shadow Dragon

That's fine. Might I make a suggestion? He can show up at the house of an archmage, a character of mine named Ophion. He (and his wife Aurescia) are unlikely to be as hostile to a wraith as other characters would be.

Or, if you want him to be resurrected at some point, he can visit the priest Vespion. What species was he in life? I know it is possible he might have forgotten that.
@Shadow Dragon

Can he go outside into the sunlight? Keep in mind that this is a very sunny setting. A desert, after all.
@Shadow Dragon

I see. You can play him, but this will make things harder for him. Just giving you fair warning. It would be out of character for my characters and those of the other players to accept a wraith as an ally without some serious reasons.
@Shadow Dragon

A wraith? It can be done, but that really is out of the norm for the RP. Most other characters are living. It's hard to tell how a wraith would fit in. Especially since most characters wouldn't be too friendly to the undead. A necromancer is one thing, but a wraith would likely be attacked on sight.
