Epic-ish Quest (OOC)

Post by Nicodemus » Thu Nov 02, 2017 12:43 pm

Adventure, you say? Yes, yes, I know such a tale. Magic? Villainy? Monsterous beasts? What sort of tale would it be without them? Heroes? ... Hmm ... How about we just get on with it?

Our tale begins in a world of many, numerous, redundant creatures. Wizards, elves, dwarves. Orcs, goblins, opossums. A world of magic. Not coin tricks, mind you. Powerful magic that can accomplish almost anything and get a hero out of any tight spot unexpectedly.

Word of evil spread in this world, word of a dark lord that bound himself to a dark relic. He found the relic in a land that held little light, which made it dark. He planned to use the relic to cast the world into darkness, which is how he liked things.

The peoples of Not'earth became wary of the Dark One, and some set their grievances aside to congregate and decide what unlikely, unqualified heroes they would depend on to secure the fates of those obviously more suitable for the task. They knew the band must be motley, which would probably make them incompatible and incompetent as a team. Also, many of the heroes would not be adept in combat, or politics, or being outside, and generally useless as people. But there was hope that sheer luck would trump lack of aptitude and lead the heroes to victory on their Epic-ish Quest.


We all love fantasy, right? Good. Now let's rip it apart and subject it to ridicule.

You can treat this as an always open tavern-style RP. Drop in and out as you please and be as serious or silly as you want. It's just a light-hearted fantasy setting for you to play in. Though our heroes are on the road, think of it as a group story like "Lost", where new characters can pop up anytime but have been travelling with the band all along. Or, intro your character another way. Whichever you prefer.

Character sheets are optional, but if you skip that step be sure to give us a good description in the IC.

This sounds really fun, but as Rick asked, do we need a CS?

Thanks for the interest, guys.

I don't need character sheets, as long as the character is consistent with medieval-ish fantasy genre (no aliens, time-travelers in DeLoreans, sentient tennis-shoes, etc.). But if anyone would like to submit something (description, name, whatever) I'd be happy to post a list at the top of the OOC for convenience sake.

As to the second half of Rick's question, this RP is for Sammy's Storycraft contest.

The point is to keep it as enjoyable as possible and fun to read and write. In that spirit, I'd like to encourage everyone to develop the plot together, building on and respecting the ideas of other writers in the RP. I may have set things up so we can have fun, but let's see if we can pull off a descent story while parodying it.

Name:Zig Zax
RaceHigh Goblin
Class: Mad Alchemist, Portal Wizard, Necromancer
A bit about ‘em He’s crazzzzzzy mad, seriously, you never know what or how he’ll do something. His unique selection of dark arts allows him to do whatever he wishes with little care about the morality of the situation. He cares little for money, besides the obvious uses of liquid gold and silver, caring more for satisfying his sadistically enjoyment of killing, maiming, murdering, controlling raising and finally rekilling the “evil” denizens of the world…. Oh yeah, his significant other.. Yeah she’s a dragon. Red one. Big. Old. Cranky. And yet somehow manages to deal with Zig.. or is it the other way around… Who knows with these two.


Uhhh yeah.

Sorry for the delay, should have had this done WAY earlier.

Name: Barbra (Barb for short)
Gender: Male (That's the joke)
Class: Fighter
Something about him: He is a fist fighter, refusing to go into battle with anything other than his own fists (Maybe some gloves but that's it) Because of his name he has a terrible temper and always tries to throw himself into a fight just to prove his masculinity. However, he sucks at fist fighting and will easily be beaten in battle. But he will tell everyone he meets how strong he is and how many people he has beaten in battle (Which both are lies).

So there he is.

Owlf Owlsen, one of the lesser known siblings. Small roles on television, but it's been hinted that he's in line for a lead role in that big Rom-Com coming up in the Spring.

Name: Remiel the Magnificent, Slayer of Gormash, Wielder of the 12 Rings - two of which are toe rings, mind you, so yes, 12 - and Moderate to Severe Annoyance to Most Who Oppose Him
Gender: Male
Class: Mage Commander (That is, big talker with a couple of spells, a heavy dose of charm, and massive ba...skets of confidence)
Something about him: Remiel is an Archmage from a bygone era, Co-Commander of the Three Companies, and frozen in time when his foe - the other archmage from selfsame bygone era - robbed him of his glorious victory with a dirty, cheap, screen-looking stasis spell. Now, he seeks to rebuild The Three Companies and, more importantly, his legend with great feats. This would be easier if he was still an archmage, but five or ten millenia frozen in time seems to have granted him some...performance issues. He swears, this never happened before. That spell going off early was just a fluke.

Hi! I'd love to join this :)

Name: Lady Bloomingheart (Bloom for short of course)
Gender: Female
Class: Youngest daughter (19) of the duke from the surrounding area
Background: Renowned for her beauty, and not so much for much for anything else...she had that great time at the gala....oh no, that's right she knocked over the dessert table right onto every other young noble at the gala when trying to do a jig. Ashamed by her recent sweet, sticky situation, she decided to run away from home (let's just say mommy and daddy weren't too happy) to see why exactly all these people are marching around so official-like. She is accompanied by her servant Becky.
