Are there any other characters coming in? There's just two of us right now. I can get writing an intro post at least, I'm just not really sure what I'm doing, and admittedly uncertain if this RP is going to get off the ground.
Name: Ashelyth Iseris Age: 115 Faction: Alaitoc Craftworld Occupation: Ranger, walking the Path of the Outcast
Appearance: Short for an Aeldari, but still taller than many humans, Ashelyth is closer to six feet than seven, with a lithe build and the fresh face of youth, despite living for over a century. Pale-skinned with a smattering of freckles, her eyes are large and light silver-blue in color, and somehow the only part of her that seems old, due to her often distant gaze. Her long hair is platinum blonde, loosely bound behind her and typically tucked away into her hood when on a mission.
Wargear: Ashelyth's weaponry consists of her beloved Long Rifle, Silvershard, and her Shuriken Pistol sidearm. She wears lightweight body armor in the dark blue color of her craftworld, Alaitoc, beneath a long hooded cloak. The cloak appears a shimmering metallic silver color normally, but can shift and bend its color to match surrounding environments, aiding in her stealth.
She has also come equipped with a Ranger Gloom Field to help hide herself or her unit when under fire, and a Wireweave Net to deploy and use against charging foes, killing some and slowing the rest to buy time for a retreat.
History: Ashelyth's story so far is an all-too-common one on Alaitoc, that of a youth driven to desperation by the repressive mandatory discipline of her craftworld. Rather than cause enough trouble to be forcibly banished, Ashelyth left her people behind of her own accord, choosing the Path of the Outcast, taking up a rifle and setting out as a Starstrider, a Ranger.
It wasn't an act done lightly, as Ashelyth left family and many friends behind, and was well aware of the hardships and dangers that awaited her in the larger galaxy. But also she knew there was opportunity, adventure, and greater purpose in it than she could find elsewhere, and that she could not resist. She devoted herself to the craft, obeying the words of her mentors and trainers as law, and steeling her mind in the hopes of becoming impervious to malicious influences.
She started her journey on a number of Exodite worlds, offering her services where she was needed. After several years of this she ventured further, seeking out the territories of aliens, always reporting back any noteworthy developments to her home. She made a habit of watching those she encountered in stealth for days, sometimes weeks, to determine their temperament towards her kind if she could, before revealing herself and selling her skill as a sniper.
Her most recent and most notable destination was a verdant, lush world under Imperial rule that had come under assault by a sizable warband of Chaos, red-clad cultists and crimson demons fighting under the banner of the World Eaters traitor legion. Ashelyth offered her aid to the beleaguered garrison of the Astra Militarum there, and by chance encountered another of her kind walking the Outcast's Path, this one a Pathfinder of the Saim-Hann craftworld named Galanmaer.
Ashelyth spent two years on that world, honing her craft of hit-and-run tactics alongside Galanmaer against the utterly predictable forces of Khorne. The fighting there, the things she witnessed, and the overwhelming threat of Chaos, left its mark on Ashelyth. When she left the ultimately doomed world, she did so alone, sending only a slim report back to Alaitoc, and making no mention of Galanmaer. She left haunted and with the intent to return to her craftworld, perhaps for good, finally feeling like she understands the need for extreme discipline her people preach.
She wavered as she traveled, however, and when the call for aid from the Maiden World Yonah went out, it came as a relief. A way to avoid facing her family for now. She changed course and joined with the forces of Alaitoc rangers arriving there, ready to put her long rifle to use against whatever threat Yonah faced. All the while, a foreboding feeling builds in her gut, a feeling like she's become a moth, helpelessly drawn to the flame.
I admit I have no idea how old a "young" Eldar should be, so I guessed. If anything else seems wrong or not lore-friendly let me know. Some of the history parts I left intentionally vague, if you want the details I can always PM them to you.
Potentially interested! Bit of a newer fan of 40k, sadly don't know all that much about Aeldari, but happy to read up and learn. When you say a "small force" what does that mean? Like a small army, or a squad, or...?
I'm Sky, looking to write some stuff in my free time. Haven't done any RP in years, but realized the other day how much I missed it, and took a look at some sites. I really like how this one is organized, it's clean and easy to read.
My interests are... all over the place, tbh, but anything with action and excitement is likely to get my attention.
Bit of a specific RP request, figured I'd take a shot in the dark here and maybe I'll get lucky. The basic idea is that I want to do a pro wrestling RP, following a young female wrestler (my character) as she tries to go from local indie shows to the big time.
What I'm looking for in a partner is someone to facilitate that in a sort of GM role. Someone willing to help write the rivals my characters comes up against, allies she makes, her victories, defeats, feuds, and so on. Asking a lot, I know, but like I said, shot in the dark.
So we'd probably be writing a lot of in-ring action, then backstage encounters that set the stage for more in-ring action. Not looking to write too much slice of life stuff that happens between contests.
If I haven't lost you yet... cool! A little about me and my writing preferences:
I am over 21, but you don't have to be. I'm not really interested in writing any romance for this RP. Sorry if that is a dealbreaker.
I'm more or less looking for a casual writing level. As long as posts give me things to respond to and are decently written, I'm happy. My own posts will greatly vary in length depending on what we're writing.
I'm somewhat knowledgeable about wrestling, but definitely not an expert. Like there are a lot of terms for types of moves that I'm unfamiliar with. I play way more of the 2K game than actually watching wrestling on TV. All that to say it's fine if you don't know that much about wrestling either. We can learn together in that case! Still, I wanna write matches that are fairly grounded and not super over the top, so a basic idea of how matches are paced and such is good to have.
I can be pretty active, especially if I'm really into the RP. Something like a post every other day, or every day if things are going well and I have time. I'd like something similar in a partner. I'm fine with taking breaks or even ghosting too, though obviously I'd prefer being given a heads up. It happens, and life always comes first before RP.
I'd prefer to roleplay through PMs here on the site. Send me one if you think this sounds like a fun idea, and we can hash out some more details!
