Interest Check - Battlelust - Fantasy Strategy War

Post by Tolvo » Sat Apr 28, 2018 7:15 am

Welcome to the world of Battlelust. In this world we will be taking part in a grand war, with elements of strategy, political intrigue, battle, and romance(If you desire). We join this world during the breakout of a small world war between the Star Alliance, Coldblood Tribes, United Clans, Elven Diarchy, and Unholy Aristocracy. This means we'll be seeing various fantasy races and armies going head to head in their various wars as you the players decide the fate of the world with your actions.

What exactly will we be doing in this roleplay? Each player will be creating their own character which they will then control and play as, you can decide for yourself what elements you want to engage with more. The politics, war, etc. There are a lot of paths things can go down and ways for characters to meet up and interaction. As of now there are a limited number of playable races to make things not too overly complicated. Star Alliance(Humans, Dwarves). Coldblood Tribes(Saurians, Kobolds). Unholy Aristocracy(Vampires). United Clans(Orcs, and Goblins). Elven Diarchy(Sylvan Elves, and Deep Elves). These are the main factions that will be at war, on top of being a part of them players have the option to choose to be mercenaries instead.

This world is heavily inspired by worlds such as Warhammer Fantasy, Warcraft, and Lord of the Rings. As for how to decide the outcome of battles I will act as GM and judge how battles should end and what outcomes will happen based on player performance. If the need arises I may seek out other judges to help.

This is a fantasy world which we will be working on together, as the GM I will have the final say in some matters but always feel free to pitch ideas, ask questions, or talk with others about building the world. As of now it is still in the works for basic world setup that I am doing. There will be elements of realism to this, I personally like to study Medieval Military History and I'll try to bring some realistic elements in but it is also a fantasy world. So sometimes the gun will be better sometimes the spell will be, it depends on the context. I don't ask anyone to have well versed knowledge in said history and at any time feel free to ask questions or talk about anything mentioned.

This thread is for chatter, questions, character sheets, and planning for the RP. Do not worry about the stats or resources for units that is a system I think I won't be using in the end. Some aspects are still a WIP.

Some of the fastest horses around are Unicorns. While they do have a single horn on their head they're actually not that useful in combat.

Standing at over ten feet in height, they are easy to hit with ranged weaponry but are true brutes up close. A Giant can lift a soldier and toss them like they're a sack of potatoes with ease.

Lore
Species/Races
Image
Humans - Humans are a common surface walking species. They have a wide array of skin colors, eye colors, and hair colors. It is a common trait of humans for them to have a diverse genetic pool outside of their nobility. Humans can be found around the entire world and have spread to many cultures and founded many civilizations. While not the strongest or most magically attuned, humans do excel with their intelligence. Many inventions of the world were first created by humans. Humans mainly worship one of the various pantheons of gods.
Image
Dwarves - Dwarves are stout, it has to be said. They are shorter than most species and tend to live underground. A Dwarf is strong despite their height and most importantly have a low center of gravity making them hard to knock over. Noted for their love of armor, it is rare for anyone other than a mate to see a Dwarf without their armor. Smithing is second nature to them and for some quite literally runs in their blood. Dwarves mostly worship their ancestors.
Image
Daemonites - Daemonites are not their own species but are instead a race. As a race they are formed when other mortals make pacts with demons, deal with demons, or breed with demons, whatever the source they have demon blood in their veins. This often makes them highly visible and ostracized among their own kind. Humans are the most accepting of Daemonites and have the highest population of them. A Daemonite is naturally attuned to magic though they are also more vulnerable to demonic entities. The term Daemonite is an old one, from when the word Demons was pronounced Daemon.
Image
Sylvan Elves - Sylvan Elves are lithe and are what are most commonly thought of when one does think of Elves. They tend to have darker skin than Deep Elves and are mostly hairless. With a natural affinity for magic, they make for great Weavers. A Weaver is the Elven term for a mage, as they believe that one weaves the threads of magic. They live mostly in forests and worship light itself as a personified entity.
Image
Deep Elves - Deep Elves live mainly underground in the Deep, their collective term for the great caverns they live in. Mostly they survive on various fungus, insects, and flora that they cultivate underground. Their vision is poor in the light but they can see in perfect darkness. With pale or gray skin they often look sick to other species. Deep Elves worship darkness as a personified entity.
Image
Orcs - One of the larger of the mortal species to be found, Orcs are bulky with a natural affinity for muscular frames. Thick, with tusks, they make for great warriors in battle. Because of this their culture has often involved warfare to some degree. Mainly they live as nomads in clans and migrate from place to place, much to the chagrin of other species. Sometimes they are referred to as a horde by others but this is not quite correct. Orcs like to worship emotions as manifestations of gods and spirits.
Image
Goblins - Lithe and agile, Goblins make for excellent athletes. Their society is most often found underground where they live a xenophobic lifestyle. They prefer to keep to themselves but also are rapid breeders meaning they have a high demand for territory and resources. Goblins mainly worship their own feelings as a personification of their deity.
Image
Saurians - Saurians are considered to be a very ancient species. They were among the first to walk upright and have stories that span what are believed to be millions of years into the past. A Saurian is large, with thick armor-like scales, claws, razor sharp teeth, and long powerful tails. They make for natural hunters and are considered to be less advanced despite their age. This is not entirely true, as they do have their own society and culture they just merely find themselves closer to their primal roots. Saurians typically worship dragons and see them as the originators of all cold blooded life.
Image
Kobolds - Kobolds are short cold blooded creatures that mostly live underground. Despite their size they are highly aggressive and often only get along with Saurians. To the Kobolds other species are lesser for their use of animals as mere labor or tools of war. Kobolds revere animals and see them as wiser than supposedly sapient creatures.
Image
Vampires - Vampires are a relatively new creature, formed through blood magic that went awry. These creatures are not quite undead, but utilize them for everything. Vampires are intelligent and have their own will though they require blood to survive. Cold to the touch, many Vampires are Elves as Elves were the first Vampires. There is a natural corruption brought about by Vampires who seems to have a slight ability to influence others. They are not their own species but are instead a race. Vampires are sensitive to sunlight, silver, and are weak to fire.
Image
Undead - The Undead are mostly lacking in any form of soul or intelligence. They are controlled by Necromancers of one variety or another. Liches are those in high command over the Undead, a Lich is a creature incapable of true death that resurrects itself after being defeated. Those Undead with a will are their commanders and puppeteers. Much of the Badlands is ruled by wandering Undead hordes while other Undead have in secret made pacts with the Vampires to serve alongside them.
Factions
Elven Diarchy - Also known as the Twilight Empire, the Elven Diarchy has existed for centuries. Deep Elves and Sylvan Elves have long held this union as a sacred aspect of the balance between light and dark. Both are ruled by an Emperor who are joined through marriage. Each rules over their respective Empire of the Sylvan Woods and the Deep. Neither can encroach upon the other and they are bound by their union to peace. Originally both empires were happy to stay out of the war but after trespasses into their territories they have decided they’ve long enough defended their borders. It is time for them to take land, it is time for them to retake their ancestral empire. It is said once that all that was dark belonged to the Deep Elves and all that was light belonged to the Sylvan Elves. By dredging up these ancient rights they have called for an expansion to retake their ancestral homeland.

Coldblood Tribes - Ruled by no single entity, the Coldblood Tribes are a not quite as organized as other factions. Their leaders disagree quite often but they are still united by blood. For the longest of times they’ve been content to stay to their lands but the Kobold Chieftains have concocted a plan. By siding with the Saurian Chieftains and working in unison they plan to take over other lands and gain new hunting and breeding grounds. As is both groups struggle to hold enough resources to keep their swelling numbers. To them this war is not about who is right and wrong, it is simply about survival.

United Clans -Once at war with one another, a recent shift has occurred. Those of Orc and Goblin blood have become united by their desire for conquest. Yet some confuse this for hatred when the reality is to the Orcs and Goblins war and strife is simply life. The sorrow, anger, and joy it brings are all aspects of life. Though Orcs and Goblins do have stakes in the land, for the Starlands were once theirs to roam before the arrival of humans. While before the lands were free to be roamed with the Star Alliance now in effect they no longer able to roam, as a threat to their freedom the Clans found this to be enough to join under one banner and bring war upon the Star Alliance.

Unholy Aristocracy - A recent invention of the former Emperor of the Deep, Vampires have only just arrived on the scene. Without a home to call their own, they instead live in secret pulling the strings behind the scenes. Their numbers are hidden and their true threat is not understood, even the fact that the former Deep Emperor still lives on is a close kept secret. A Vampire naturally corrupts those around them, influencing them in ways still not yet understood. They can come from any species, though Daemonites are known to be immune to Vampire corruption.

Star Alliance - The Star Alliance was formed only recently after the Dwarves and Humans finally put aside their differences. By uniting the kingdoms of both under the Alliance they have strengthened their territories and formed a fully function military the likes of which has never been seen before. Highly advanced scientifically, they bring with them war machines never seen before, as well as support from human nations across the world. Humans are a new creature to the north, a few hundred years ago they arrived on the scene after following the Northern Star. They crossed the Sapphire Sea and conquered all they could making the now named Starlands their own. Early on Dwarves and them became allies only to drift apart as time went on. Now again they are united hoping to conquer and control what lands they feel belong to them.

The Lodge of Mages - The Lodge of Mages has been a lasting part of the north for quite some time. Founded centuries ago by the great Archmage Dalubar the Arcane, this lodge is a collection of all the neutral mages in the north. They focus mainly on themselves and their prospective members, teaching and attempting to expand the wealth of knowledge about magic as a whole. They were established within the Starlands but as of yet have not joined the Star Alliance, choosing instead to stay mostly neutral. On occasion they will step in should a danger be catastrophic enough, otherwise they're fine with playing politics in the midst of courts.

Demons of Hell - In another realm resides Hell, a place of infinite misery and death. Those who draw upon this magic are known as Warlocks. Demons of every variety exist and their masters are what can be considered true evil. At times they will meddle in the lives of mortals for their own desires or mere amusement. The realm of Hell is a place of constant battle for supremacy with a true form of chaos always persisting. None of the Demon Lords are pleasant with one another.

Council of Warlocks - Warlocks are those who tap into the realm of Hell to draw from it for their magical spells. A Warlock must be a Daemonite in some form, having become influenced by Demons in some way. The Council of Warlocks however are considered a force for possible good by those who truly know them. These shadowy figures keep hidden for their own safety, and their true ranks are unknown. The Council seeks to control Demonkind and keep them in check. To this end they summon and bind Demons and wage a personal war against the realm of Hell.
Important NPC's(WIP)
High Constable Katharine Heilbringer - Born a mere peasant, Katharine was without a last name and was the daughter of a smith. She learned the craft as well and served as apprentice to her father until she was brought into a militia to serve her king. As a soldier and smith she had a good mix of skills that aided her on campaign. During an ambush of their camp she took up a sword while at the forge and slew every soldier that approached her. Battle after battle she slaughtered her foes until her king finally rose her to the position of High Constable. In that position she became a war leader and became a pillar of the Star Alliance, helping to draft much of its military doctrine. She rides atop a gray Griffin named Ruinbringer, and wields her sword Black Fang into battle.

High Queen Genevieve de L'etoileterre - Originally but the sister to the true heir to the throne, Francis IV, after his death in battle without any heirs of his own the crown was passed to Genevieve. At first she didn't wish to rule but after seeing the state of her people she took to the throne and became Queen of L'etoileterre. This kingdom of the Starlands was in decline until she began to ensure diplomatic relations improved. By using other relatives of hers to form marriages and alliances she soon found herself as a cornerstone of the Starlands. While not as great a warrior as some rulers, she was known as a shrewd and capable politician and during the accords to form the Star Alliance she was the most voted for to take the position of High Queen. Rather than having a prideful leader they gained a pragmatic one who now wishes to see her people triumph.

Argarin the Iron King - An abnormal sight to behold, Argarin is a Dwarf with skin as hard as iron. He was born this way much to the displeasure of his mother who birthed him. She raised him to become her heir and saw to it that he would be a humble ruler. When she died in battle against the Orcs he sword to avenge her by killing whoever led the Orcs. Unfortunately they do not have one leader so he's not quite sure how to properly avenge her as of yet. With iron skin he is able to repel most blows dealt against him and on top of it he wears mithril armor that renders him near invincible. His favored weapon is a two handed hammer called Doom with a wide head.

Brunhilda the Giant Queen - Brunhilda was born of an unusual union between a Dwarf and a Giant. As such despite having Dwarven blood in her veins she is seven feet tall. This makes her look like a particularly stocky and large human. With her size has come a great deal of power both physical and political. At first people questioned her loyalties but she smashed their skulls in until people stopped asking. She rules over the Dwarves of the north and has a strong alliance with the Giants whom which see her as kin. Brunhilda has golden hair that drapes down her back in twin pigtails that she keeps braided. She always carries her great halberd with her known as Skysinger. Her and Argarin the Iron King have some disagreements but both see the wisdom of the Star Alliance in these trying times.

Chieftain Grimmbad - One of the elder chieftains, Grimmbad is a proud warrior who has lived for centuries as a chieftain of the Goruzubad Tribe. Normally his people do not live such long lives but Grimmbad is both wise and fearsome. It is he who once went against the ways of the Orcish Horde of old and helped to lead his people away from becoming mere marauders. Grimmbad defeated his former chieftain's champion and was declared the leader of the Goruzubad. Since then he has been successful in battle after battle, none dare even challenge him anymore except for the foolish. To some he is but a legend, as Grimmbad could be considered the greatest living warrior. Among his people he is considered to be the avatar of the Orcish God of War, Ikisha. He is said to carry her very spirit in his axe.

Chieftain Zikzikyak - Among the Goblins there is whispered a name for speaking it too loudly may bring down his ire. Chieftain Zikzikyak was once but a mere worker who killed his way to the top in the arena. After surviving his first encounter just barely he grew a taste for blood. It festered within him until he felt the need to return, and return he did. Bloody fight after another was waged until few would dare challenge him. Finally he came to despise his chieftain using him as a political tool, so Zikzikyak challenged and slew him legally. As the new Chieftain of the Killaz Tribe his first act was to surround himself with an order of elite and protective guard before ruling with an iron fist. He is often at odds with the other chieftains but they fear him too much to stop his dominant ways.

Jian'Zeal the Sylvan Emperor - Jian'Zeal is one part of the Elven Diarchy between the Sylvan and Deep Empires. He is married to the Deep Emperor Hekratian. Both share a great love for each other and their peoples. As the Sylvan Emperor Jian'Zeal is a master of the light magic of his people as well as that of life. He is called the Sun Druid by outsiders for this. In person he is very quiet. When put in battle however he is astute yet bold and prefers to lead from the front lines. With his powerful magic he is able to turn tides and save the lives of his fellow Elves.

Hekratian the Deep Emperor - Hekratian is one part of the Elven Diarchy between the Sylvan and Deep Empires. He is married to the Sylvan Emperor Jian'Zeal. He is known as the lesser Emperor for he is very private and shy. Hekratian is known for his cunning for though he may appear timid his hawk-like eyes are always searching and always finding political prey. To top it off Hekratian is the world's greatest Shadow Weaver and is capable of even blocking out the sun in localized areas. Some refer to him as the Dark Lord for this.

Krittikocol the Great Prophet of Dragons - Who she was the Saurians may truly never know. One day Krittikocol arrived in their lands claiming to be a prophet. She performed mere miracles that were lesser than other Oracles which brought her into question. Her words were confusing to the Saurians who ran her out, only for her to return ten years later with a new prophecy. Rather than the tricks she played before she created a mountain and grew life on it before their very eyes. It became known as Dragon Rest and is a holy site where Drakes lay their eggs. It is her prophecy that one day a Dragon unlike any other will come into the world to destroy it, and that only by becoming the greatest hunters they can will a single Saurian hero defeat it and save the world. She fanned the flames of war in the belief that only by testing themselves against other races will they be able to forge a true hero in the fires of battle.

Chieftain Burgbolgor the Enraged - Of all the Kobolds who live beneath Kkrikku none are quite as dangerous as Chieftain Burgbolgor. It is said his anger knows no limits nor does his hatred. Once he was but a simple servant until he took to the slaying of a Drake by himself. This earned him a great deal of praise but not the position of Chieftain which he sought. Rather than wait he killed his Chieftain and took her position as leader of the Godokin Tribe. His first act was to wage war with their kin until he had conquered much of the dens of Kobolds. Rather than wage war with the Saurians he joined in the brewing unification that was being brought up. Now with his eyes on the Deep and Dwarven territories, he seeks to aggressively expand once again and crush his enemies. He wields the famed axe Grindbonesmash.

Nehekra the Blood Emperor - A hundred years ago Nehekra was born as a possible future heir to the throne of the Deep Emperor. He was not first in line nor was he last, instead being forced to wait roughly seventy years before his coronation. At that age he was considered wise, his pale skin and white hair was easily visible to those around him. It was a mark of his royalty. When he was in his youth he had been known for his power as a Shadow Weaver, and in his old age he became known for his generosity. Late into his rule though he became obsessed with an artifact of Hell that had been brought before him by a Warlock. It was a simple goblet that he discovered only too late was cursed. It bound him to it, though the Warlock had not anticipated the Emperor's resolve as he slew her. With a curse attached to him to every day drink blood or he'd whither away he came to study it intently. By using his magic and linking it with the goblet he was able to turn it into his own item, now dubbed the Goblet of the Blood Emperor, in secret he used it to turn himself and those close to him into Vampires. One day he was deposed by his younger brother who saw him as having lost his mind, Nehekra went with the charade and pretended to be dead only to rise in secret. Now he has formed his own aristocracy of unholy allies across multiple nations. He uses them to his own ends and seeks to once again rule, as the Blood Emperor.

Kel'Ethil the Exile - Kel'Ethil was once a servant of his king. He was a mage who protected the line of King Hierogrin the Bold, Gierogrin's family were close with him. Known as a proud and heroic sorcerer of his time, he helped in the repelling of the old Orcish Hordes that once dominated the Badlands when Humanity kept a border with it. During a pivotal battle Humanity was losing against the Hordes, Kel'Ethil gathered other mages like him and joined in casting a great ritual spell that was so devastating the left over magic radiation still lasts in the Badlands. His spell destroyed the Orcish Hordes but in the process killed a portion of his King's army and his son. To punish him Kel'Ethil was stripped of everything and sent to wander the Badlands till death, alone. What happened there is still a mystery but now he rules it having raised the Orcs of old as his mindless servants and warriors in death. He grew to become the most powerful Lich known in the world and now deals with Vampires in secret, hoping to get his revenge on humanity.

Religions
Star Pantheon
Allfather Luddvich the Holy Star - Known to those of the Starlands as the Allfather, they believe that the sun itself is Luddvich and that it is his holy body that gives the world warmth and light. He is perhaps the most revered god of the Starlands though Guiding Dagrun does contest that position. It is believed that Luddvich will never wage war with another living thing as he is too pure for it.

Allmother Eleonore the Moonwife - A lesser worshiped member of the Star Pantheon, Eleonore is the wife of Luddvich. She is seen as chaotic and wild with mood swings constantly plaguing her. In the Starlands she represents the sea and its dangers though she is also used as a scapegoat to explain away the anger of women. Suffice to say many women disagree on this.

Guiding Dagrun the Northern Star - While the Allfather is the greatest star to ever live the people of the Starlands also heavily worship Dragrun. Dagrun is the Northern Star that their ancestors followed to end up in the Starlands. He is seen as the guide to destiny.

Magni the Star Warrior - Magni is the champion of the Star Pantheon, he is known as the Star Warrior as such. His constellation is that of a spear, a belt, and a shield. Seldom are they seen at the same time but when they are it is believed to be a good omen in battle. Magni is always at war with Gwynt the Void Lord. Their battles claim other stars and it is said that one day all will either be stars or all will be void.

Aribold the Star Sorcerer - The Star Sorcerer is a recent addition to the Star Pantheon. They believe him to be a wizard that represents wisdom and craft. There is a commonly held belief that Aribold is a young god that is younger than humanity, who is only rarely visible. It is said that Aribold will turn the tide in the war with Gwynt via magic and that it is he who allows mortals to cast spells.

Gwynt the Void Lord - The God of Darkness and the Void in the Great Dark of Space. He is pictured as a king in black with a long cape full of stars that envelopes infinity. With him he carries a massive sword of stars which make a constellation in the night sky.

Gwynevere the Huntress - Ever travelling the stars themselves is the Huntress Gwynevere. She is there pictured with her trusty wolf Siflin. It is her that shows the spirit of travel and always she is guided by the Northern Star.
Ancestor Spirits

Orcish Gods
Ikisha - The Goddess of War. Ikisha is pictured as a supremely muscular woman with a belly who carries an axe and wears mail armor. Ikisha was once a mortal Orc who gained godhood among her people upon her death. It is said that one day she will return to her people and lead them into the greatest war that there ever was into Hell itself.

Grokbor - The God of Fury. Grokbor is an enemy of Ikisha. Originally he was the God of War but she usurped his position in their pantheon. To the Orcs he represents all that is fury and rage. He is impulsive and hateful.

Elator - The God of Joy. Elator is one of the more desired Orcish gods. He is seen as pure bliss and is what all Orcs strive for, happiness in life. Those who follow Elator are believed to be living the lives they truly want to. Not all Orcs are meant for war, among them Elator is the most worshiped god.

Koombu - The God of Sorrow. Also known as the keeper of the dead, Koombu is a thin and gaunt Orc with a skull painted over his face. It is said Koombu was the first Orc that died, and he was left along. And as such decided he wanted to keep company and created the concept of manifesting among the living. Koombu is the first ancestor spirit and on some days it is believed he can be seen among his people.

Wulfrid - The Goddess of Fear. Pictured as a great monster, Wulfrid is a creature of Orcish nightmares. She is the master of dreams and rules the sleeping world. It is Wulfrid who the other Orcish gods primarily war with. In battle Orcs may try to invoke her to send fear into their enemies.

Pinchrip - The Goddess of Pain. Known for her cruelty, Pinchrip is fond of testing the will of mortals through pain. To Orcs no pain means no gain, and that one must endure to get ahead in life. She is pictured as a temptress who will seduce noble Orcs away from their paths and that she must be resisted at all costs.
Goblin Gods

The Light
The Light is all that is bright and good to the Sylvan Elves. It is their believe that the Light is a living thing that gives blessings to those it touches. To them the sun is the greatest manifestation of light and that their most devout of believers go blind trying to take in its beauty during meditation. From the Light the Sylvan Elves draw their magic and contort and manipulate it to their ends. Once it was believed that the Sylvan Emperor ruled over all that the Light touched, as in the entire surface of the world.
The Shadow
To the Deep Elves there is one cold hard truth, that the Shadow will always exist. As long as there is the Light there will be Shadows. To them the Shadow is not evil, nor is darkness. Instead Light and Shadow are in an everlasting tug of war that will last to the end of time. It is said that the Deep Elves once ruled over all that was Shadow, all beneath the surface of the world. They seek to make this a reality.
Dragons
Quetzelkowt the Creator - Quetzelkowt is a great feathered Dragon that is the predecessor of the Saurians and Kobolds. They believe that he gave birth to all of life and that the Coldblood Tribes are the closest to his greatness that still live to this day.

Alakakuma the World - Alakakuma is what the Saurians and Kobolds call the world. They view it as being one great Dragon that has held all of existence.

Jorgandr the World Binder - It is said among the Saurians and Kobolds that the great Dragon known as Jorgandr holds the world together. That without it wrapped about the earth it would fall apart, thus making Jorgandr the great savior of the Saurians and the world.

Helsky the Destroyer - Helsky is a recent addition to the pantheon of Dragons. It is the believe of the Great Prophet that Helsky will one day return to destroy the world and that only a true hero can defeat him.

Kroq'lotar the Very Seas - Kroq'lotar is the name of the Dragon that lives beneath the depths. Under the seas at the bottom of the world lives this behemoth of a Dragon which constantly cries for mortals. It has such a deep love for mortals that it cannot stop crying, and so lives in seclusion so that it may not end up destroying all of creation. It resembles a great crocodile.

Kkrikotal the Winds - A great winged creature with a long snout, Kkrikotal is a Wyvern and is the cousin of Dragons. Not a true Dragon, it is not permitted to land so it always soars through the skies. Wind exists because of its flapping wings. Kkrikotal is also the first Oracle and has sacrificed its heart and mind to the Dragons. Magic is also believed to come through Kkrikotal and that all mages owe their power to the will of it.

Kkrikaxru the King of Kings - A slumbering creature, Kkrikaxru lives deep in the jungles beneath the caverns of even the Kobold Tribes. There he sleeps, the mightiest Tyrant to ever live. It is said only a true hero can rise him from his slumber and then ride him into battle against the the Destroyer.

Well I like big wars, strategy, politics, and highly detailed rps so I want to throw in my interest. How many people are you hoping joins? How often do you want people to post every week? And how long was you intending to run the rp? I ask since it seems every other "high detailed" rp like this Ive shown interest in the creator just -poofs- >.>

Anyway, I was mostly interested in the second paragraph but there wasnt much to go on. Like I know people make a character normally, and I get that its kind of like a sandbox from your description. But what was you hoping for starting the RP with? Does our character race change where the RP starts? You said there's a lot of ways for characters to meet up, does that mean everyone's going to be separated doing their own thing and not really interacting with others to begin with? Did you plan to have a "player character" or strictly npcs?

Maybe important, but I only know the bare basics of warhammer~ stuff from say vermintide and things Ive seen from video game streams. I know they have steam punk space ships along with psychic powers and guns mixed along with otherwise typical medieval fantasy tropes~ never made that much sense to me. I assumed warhammer has various times they exist in instead of it all being at the same time. I dont mind looking at some vids or something to get more familiar with the setting if there's something you think I could take a loot at. Now that I think of it, wasnt there a warhammer movie? I remember something about that...

Uhm, I suppose other than that I'm willing to help as much as ya want. I love to brainstorm and create and have no problems separating ic and ooc so you dont need to worry about spoilers with me.

I was hoping at least 5 people would join but we could maybe start with around 3, and capping things off at 10 at least for now. As for how often posts would be expected that would depend on the players. Lately I've been busy but I can usually post once a day but if people can't post that often once a week would be what I expect at the least. As for how long it would run I'm not entirely sure. I have done an RP like this before that lasted for about a year before life got in the way. So I was thinking maybe around a year and when we reach that point figure out things from there.

As for how and where the RP would start that would depend on the characters the players make. I would discuss with them their character's desires and then help craft a story around them. So rather than just dropping them somewhere and hoping interesting things happen there'd be more direction. A character's race will effect their treatment but you can be of any race in any faction unless it really doesn't make sense or they are more kill on sight. Like a Vampire can pretend to serve another faction but ultimately if people know they're a Vampire any non-Vampire will likely want them dead. As for characters meeting up I was thinking we'd have players each having side characters to help with interactions and story telling. That way if there is a point where two characters might not meet we can still have side characters meet them or each other. These side characters won't require character sheets and we can plan and create them when the situation and need arises. I'll be playing strictly as the important NPC's.

Well there is Warhammer Fantasy(Now Age of Sigmar) and Warhammer 40k. One is Medieval/Renaissance Fantasy and the other is future scifi. The inspiration for this regarding Warhammer is strictly Warhammer Fantasy. As for guns there are guns in this as it is more Medieval inspired but nothing like space ships. Guns did exist in the Medieval era and were especially used in the late Medieval period and then the Renaissance.

And that's good to hear. Separating IC and OOC sounds nice there may be times I still want to keep some surprises like twists hidden but other times I'd be very happy to discuss things. ^_^

I am fairly new, but I try my best to follow rules, so I won't suddenly reinforce my defenses in the west for no reason when someones planning an attack from that direction. I would love to try out this kind of thing, as I love the idea of commanding an army. If possible, I would love to command the Vampires, though I'm good with anything.

I am brand new to the site, but this caught my attention while looking for a new roleplay. A political/historical rp meshed with military tactics does appeal to me very strongly. I would love to join this.

This looks like a lot of fun - is this still in the making? I had a few questions. This sounded mostly open world like - is there a loose plot line that characters will follow or is it war setting and hopefully we get our characters together to interact?
