Current @Penny: Boy to I feel that! I've got that problem of not being able to properly describe emotions, even when I can get right into a character's head!

Hope that was okay for a post my dudes.
Mergoux stared at the giant of a man for a long moment, an almost incredulous expression written on what parts of her face were visible. This man's accent was so thick she could barely understand a word her said, but she understood enough to know he seemed to be talking himself up a bit. She didn't not buy into it, obviously he was strong with size like his, but to her it seemed that speed would generally be the greater asset when dealing with the Dead below. Certainly that was what had cost her the knockdown, was being nearly knee-deep in shit-water.

That brought her mind back to where she was headed, and with a nod she looked at the three companions she'd done battle with. "I'm staying at The Sozzled Parrot. I'm going to get this shit off me right now, but I'll be there if you need my help." she declared. "I didn't come here for this, but this is too big for me to ignore. If I can help Lord Barret, then let me know." she finished, before marching past the giant and through the church, ending up outside once more.

As she crossed the street she was given a wide berth by all those around her, even pressed as the throng was, the smell of the sewers was enough to clear the space in front of her. Striding into the Inn, she walked up to the barkeep and rummaged for coins, slamming them down on the bar where they left a damp brown ring when the barman gingerly picked them up. "Bath's that way..." he mumbled through a clenched nose, pointing down a hallway to the left of the staircase. It was obvious what she wanted, and even more so what she desperately needed "I take it you don't wish to be disturb-" he stopped at the nod from Mergoux, who swiftly turned and squelched her way into the bath chambers.

The process of getting clean was a long and grueling one, taking 3 tubs of water to get the stench off her, and another two for her gear, as best could be. Thankfully she'd managed to get the smell from the leather and metal of her equipment, but her clothes lay in a pile on the floor, waiting to be burned. There was no saving them, it wasn't worth it.

Finally, several hours later, she finished braiding her hair like she preferred it, enough to keep off her face but still hanging loose around her shoulders, she stepped from the bathing-room back into the bar. She wore a new set of clothes, and her gear was nowhere to be seen, the only thing slung over her shoulders being her large leather backpack. On her head she wore her helmet as always, which looked a little out of place considering her current lack of armor. Her twin knuckle-daggers rested on her hips as usual, but again the massive sword had also seemingly vanished.

She approached the bar and tossed another coin to the barkeep. "Hot meal and ale." she said shortly, but not impolitely. She figured it wasn't most inn's that had a bath, and she appreciated the privacy even more. Settling down into the evening, she tucked into her warm stew. It wasn't good, but she'd had worse. The ale was good at least.
Mergoux listened to the conversation as they walked to the exit of the crypts. The Bone Woman had proven useful, even though Mergoux usually distrusted magic, especially when it was magic that wrought the creatures they'd battled down below. Such things were altogether Evil, and were it not for the stink invading her nostrils and the lack of space to use her larger weapon, she would be back down there still, hunting for more of the creatures. As it was, she needed help, that much she knew. Maybe the help of the two Raven Knights, or maybe just a priest to bless her weapons, or whatever else would work against the monsters.

However more importantly right now she just wanted a bath. She knew that the sewage smell would cling to her for ages if she didn't soak it out soon, before she started drying off. Hopefully the inn she'd booked a room with had a private bath chamber. She didn't care how much it cost at this point, she just wanted to be rid of the taste of shit in her mouth and the smell on her clothes. They'd likely have to be burned, which was unfortunate but necessary.

As they neared the exit however they came across a giant of a man blocking their passage. Mergoux's permanent frown darkened as the man spoke. Fool, could he not see they were on the same side? The side of the living? Under her helmet the woman's eyes narrowed and she growled out at the man-mountain. "Call them then, or get out of our way." She marched right up to him, leaving the others behind if she had to. Her hands rested on her knuckle-daggers but didn't make a move to draw them, simply intending to walk past the stubborn brute and to the Inn. "We're not your enemies. Move." she said, glaring daggers up at him impatiently.
WOOOOO!! Thank goodness. I really am excited for this still
Uhhh... bump? Is this thing still alive? Only I really don't want this to die because I see potential for a lot of good stuff, and we've only just begun!

@Lordofthenight @Rosenrot @shylarah
Hello there! My name is Overlord Thraka and I'm looking for a good partner for a long-running RP based on and in a setting of my own design. I've been RPing for nearly 4 years now and have constantly evolved as a writer and author, long gone are my days of one-liners and paper thin characters, now I want to write properly, but my skill pertains better to RPing than to creating a novel on my own, and so this is where you come in.

The basic idea of this RP is I want to sort of test run a plot for a book that in my dreams, I would write and it would be well received. Being the realistic sort I know this unlikely, but hey, I can dream can't I? The premise is simple and worldbuilding opportunities are many, and with a partner (or possibly more if I find those willing to work together) I would like to create an RP based on the writing prompt I gave myself to start my Fantasy epic.

I am heavily inspired by the likes of Game of Thrones, Deltora, Lord of the Rings and the like, but I shall admit that I've not done as much reading in the recent past as I should have, focused more on film and television for my media consumption. To this purpose I know my inner monologue suffers, where as my physical descriptions flourish, so long as you don't mind them going a little indepth and being highly detailed and specific. Nothing so much as going into detail on every piece of furniture in a room, but as an example, I at least find myself competent and confident when it comes to writing action scenes. Just look at a few of my recent posts for examples.

Now as to the specifics of my setting and whatnot, I must attempt to keep them muddled and basic here, for I've been warned on many an occasion to 'Protect my IP' so here's the basic idea. It's a fairly standard Fantasy World, except Elves and Humans absolutely despise each other. Almost as much as they despise Orcs and other Greenskinned races.

Long ago the Humans were invited into the Elven lands to live there, after aiding them in a great war against the Greenskinned beasts. Now over time, tension has broiled and broken on multiple occasions. The humans expanding their territory as needed, well beyond the limits of what the Elves set them. This, seen as a breach of contract and bordering on a downright act of war, prompted the High Elves to lash out in defense of their lands, slaying a small town's worth of settlers. Thus began the first of the Elf Wars. That was over 1000 years ago. Now, the 9th Elf War is raging, while in the South the Orcs have found a new master, and are on the march once more.

Your character is a young one, living in a port-town. We begin our story with the sacking of your town by raiding orcs. You are far from the only survivor, but the battle claimed the lives of your family. You now join with others to bring an end to the Elf War and prove the danger of the oncoming invasion from the Southern Badlands.

Think of it kind of like Game of Thrones, only there's not armies warring for the crown, but a number of Human and Elven nations battling each other over long-standing grudges and hatred, as well as some politics thrown in. I'll confess I've not got a lot plotted out, and with your help maybe we can work through this Fantasy epic together, bring about the rise of the Alliance once more and crush the Orcs once more, driving them out of the lands forever and a day.

So! Interesting part is over, I will ask some rules be followed.

1: No partners under 18. This is going to have some adult content, certainly a great deal of violence at the very least, and written or not I'd feel more comfortable with a partner of age. I myself am 21 if you're interested in knowing that.

2: Advanced Writers only please. Or possibly High-casual if you count yourself that. I like good, long, detailed posts and writing, love love love it. I understand that's not always possible, especially in an action scene, but I'm going to provide and expect 3+ detailed paragraphs on most posts.

3: I'm looking for a serious partner in this. If you're just like "Oh hey, this sounds kinda cool..." then I don't think this is for you. I want someone who'll go all out with me, someone who'll work together with me in plotting this out, making a masterpiece of RPing a story. Someone willing to play a multitude of characters, someone willing to CREATE with me. Not someone who'll put minimum effort in and expect me to do all the hard thinking.

I think that's it to be honest... I'll edit in more as needed, but this is going up, and hopefully soon it's going down!

So yeah! If you wanna RP out a complex, medieval Fantasy world and stuff... PM me! Don't post in the thread as all it will lead to is me asking you to PM me. Just let me know that you're interested and explain why and what you can bring to the table! If enough people show proper interest, I'm going to attempt this as a small group RP, 4 people or fewer, where we collaborate in the story. Though be warned, this setting was originally of my design, and there is concrete in place. Some ideas just won't work, but I'd love to hear them anyways.

For now, I hope you enjoyed the read and I'm looking forwards to RPing with you!

I snap I knew I'd forgotten something. I gotta edit in Mergoux's reaction to the vial of black-vein-stuff. Nothing that should require any other edits from people, just sorta a reaction on her part. Sorry about that lads and lasses.
@LordOfTheNight No worries. Just don't vanish on us! I like this RP and I wanna keep it going!
