Current I just can't. This is too much. Berserk was so influential on so many things that I love. Goodbye, Miura. You'll be missed by many.

Bio



Hello! Welcome to my little bio. Don't mind the sand.

Not much to say, really. Just a directionless human with no idea of their place in life. Role playing preferences are any variation of fantasy usually. Not so much into super hardcore realism or super dark stuff, and prefer story over silly mechanics or hardcore rules in games.

Well, that's about it I guess! Nothing else here but us medjed.

Alright just an update for those who hadn't seen it:

The Queen was added to the Character tab, and it has also been updated with the three current NPC knights. Hopefully this might give people with some trouble deciding on what to do a bit more direction, but also understand that these are more meant as support for the players so feel free to make your characters a bit stronger.

@A Lowly Wretch

Hmmhm, a defensive tanky girl with likely fey origins. As discussed, I see no immediate glaring issues. That is to say, she's good. Once all the CS's in we'll see about accepting people properly.

@VitaVitaAR
As usual, if you need help or have questions please ask. I'll do what I can~
@Pyromania99
As discussed, Luna looks good.

However, and just a general PSA for everyone else -

I'm going to wait until either a Week from now, or until everyone gets their CS's in before formally accepting anyone as I feel that's a good time for people to finish a CS and so I can review them all formally.

@Tally Dor

unfortunately not.

I wanted 4 people originally and have seven interested at the moment. The most I am willing to extend that to is five. I would like to at least give them all a chance to get a CS in before I go adding any more.

I can put you on a list for the future though, in case I need extra players.
@A Lowly Wretch

Ahem - just a few things. The history is fine - in fact I love it but there is a discrepancy that need to be addressed and its probably my fault for not mentioning it in the OP.

The whole thing with the Queen showing up and claiming ownership of the land and titles is a fairly recent phenomena. Like, a year at most so unfortunately a lot of your backstory there isn't going to be applicable - there could be knights that rescue her, but they can't be from the Queen.

Also, more nitpicky - I noticed mention of the Moonless Era you cheeky little thing. In Albion it's known under something different - a time known as the Endless Night. Not a major change, but I feel it needs to be addressed.

On to the actual abilities -
I'll be honest, didn't forsee me having this problem. After mulling it over a bit I think she's a tad bit under-powered for what I'd be going for here. Healing is fine and and of itself, but I feel like you'd spend more time in combat down or recovering from wounds than actually fighting.
@Dark Cloud

Ah, sorry about that you just missed it. Want me to add you to another wait list?
~The Queen who holds a Dying Wish~




-Knights of the Realm-






@JDubs@VitaVitaAR@Guy0fV4lor@A Lowly Wretch@Pyromania99@Crimson Paladin@Rin

Alright

Well, here we are, an official OOC.

As we have seven interested parties, uh, I suppose I can't take everyone. At most, I'll be taking five. Don't be discouraged, though! I'll get to making the OOC and everything prettier and see about getting a discord once I see who all I'll be accepting.
Upon wings of lightning and with voice of thunder
Wings of Light, Wings of Dark
Bearing hair of sunlight and a soul of purest white
Bearing false light and a soul of darkest black
The King shall return, to deliver the land form its curse
A pretender shall rise to claim the land
Beasts of the land shall be slain
Humans will be made to kneel
The Fey and and their kin will face retribution and redemption
Fey and Elf wearing crowns of lies
The traitors will have their reckoning
Noble knights will be forsaken
The land cleansed of its curses
The curse will consume all
Hail, for the King will return and deliver us
Hail, for the king will return to damn us all




Well, without further ado with me being overly dramatic and making a bad attempt at being all mysterious and prophetic out of the way -

A link to the Int. Check.

And here are some rules to abide by:

1. I have very few, and really, most are guidelines, but If nothing else, read this one. It is likely the most important rule here. In regards to combat - PvE should be simple enough. Against lesser mobs I'll likely let you go ham as you need to and feel free to describe what you do yourself. Against bigger threats though, you do not get to decide whether or not you hit an enemy - or if your attempt at something was successful or not. I do. If you're unsure, just ask. In the case of PvP...which really shouldn't happen here, but on the off chance it does, work it our yourselves or I'll be arbitrator of what happens.

2. I will be attempting to post twice a week for those that have posted. This is not exactly a hard and fast rule, as I won't be keeping any strict deadlines here. Only real rule I have - is post at your earliest convenience. At most I will be willing to wait a week. After that, I'll continue posting as usual whether you post or not. Go long enough, and well, I'll probably start checking for a replacement.

3. Once I make a final decision on something, that's it. I will try to be as fair in things as possible, but if you're not happy with it well...too bad, I guess. If you're unhappy enough to give me grief or constantly question my decision after then either leave yourself or I will eventually eject you from the RP and banish your character to the shadow realm.

That's it really! Anything else just ask!

I'll leave this here from the Int Check for prosperity and easy referencing while people are making CS's



A few notes about characters:

  • Players will be fairly powerful to start with, and should possess some manner of power from somewhere and while they might have some inhuman ancestry - they for the most part should be human. Aim for a middling power level. They should be able to reasonably handle most non-boss level threats without too much trouble either by themselves or with a companion.
  • Powers can come from pretty liberal places - is your sword special? Is your armor special? If so, where did they come from and what do they do? Perhaps you have fairy blood that gave you supernatural senses or the ability to control wind. Maybe your family was once in service to an Elder Beast, and were given special abilities by it. Or maybe you're just a really fucking strong dude that can bench press a dragon. I'll be pretty chill with anything, but generally think less mage and more Sorcerer/Knight.


Some world info:

Albion is a sick, cold, unkind land. When the Fey and Elves betrayed the last surviving god to live through the Endless Night, with its final breath and power it cursed both them and the land itself. The land became sick, unable to sustain large scale crops, and the Fey and Elves were twisted into abhorrent beings that seek nothing but to bring pain and further curses to the land. Once upon a time, a king sought to bring justice to the elves and heal the land, but he was betrayed by the one closest to him.

Such tales though, have been lost to the echoes of time. What remains is a wasteland where humans struggle to simply live.



On Gods, Elementals, and Spirits:

While you can't play as a full blooded demigod, perhaps you claim some form of divine ancestry in some manner? Or perhaps you possess some relic from one of these divinities that give you superhuman feats. There are many gods that once inhabited Albion, though most are now long gone and only possess a fraction of their former ability and being regulated to little more than spirits and ghosts haunting particular areas. Still, perhaps you somehow gained ones favor and thus boons from it.

Elder Beasts:
One of the main threats upon Albion and the rest of the world for humanity - are Elder Beasts. Great, Powerful, and often times terrible beasts that stalk the land and more often than not, end up negatively affecting humanity. Most don't do it intentionally - most do not possess intelligence and seek little more than to do what they were created to. One could say each one is some embodiment of some natural phenomena.

However, as strong as they are, they can be killed. And from their corpses can be crafted the finest of weapons and armor. Mystical in abilities, and world-shattering in power at their greatest height. However, working with such materials usually requires a trained or more mystical hand.

Conversely, some more intelligent Elder Beasts take humans under their wings. Protect them. Teach them - and share a portion of their power with humans. To be sure they don't do this out of love or a desire to actively protect. Most do not understand such concepts - every portion of power they give to a human returns to them when they die. If the human cultivated the power, then it will return much stronger to the Beast. But in a world that is difficult to live in, humans care not for such things if they can live and eat safely.

@JDubs

Fairly standard high-fantasy medieval stuff. Sword and shields are the main way people defend themselves. Travel is mostly done by horses. That sort of thing.
