Becoming a legend [F]

Post by Flamma » Thu Jan 26, 2017 5:12 pm

So you'd like to become a legend... so did I..

In this world there are only 2 kinds of people, Legends and then there are mortals, but every once in a blue moon a mortal is born with the power to slay a legend. This legend will begin in the grimy steam covered streets of Bastial, the human capital. Bastial is a multi-tiered city with it's upper class traveling from building to build by bridges or hot air balloon while the lower class walk on the streets bellow on bike(since auto mobiles haven't been created). Even though the city mainly consist of humans the lower class is a diverse mixing bowl of races. Each level has it's own fair share of thievery and blood-shed and each side blames the other for it.
city idea:

Within the city are 3 Factions:
The Red Legion, a faction of lower class citizens who forged there own armor and weapon and became assassins who kill who they want when they want. Though they are mostly lower class the red legion have been known to steal regal clothing to wear on missions and prefer some take on a more snobbish personality in a vein attempt to forget their poverty.

The Doomgaurd are a group of mostly undead or deformed mercenaries who mainly function as weapons for hire but also work for their own purposes though usually good. The Doomgaurd's main objective is to hold back an ancient mythical creature know as Kinnereth though only they have seen it.

The unrepentant, a guild of mages who defile graveyards and generally hate all gods. The unrepentant while mostly evil really just do whatever they want similar to the Doomgaurd and also work as mercenaries who take on more evil task.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Legends:
hawk eye Gilligan: Captain of the Red legion, Gilligon is a human with elven features. Gilligon's most famous tale tell's of his victory on mount hollow against the abyss giants with his flintlock rifle juniper. The giants charged at Gilligan as his bullets barely missed every shot when suddenly the bullets began to glow forming a large summoning circle that erupted into green fire burning the giants to ash.
Image

Cricket:
The stealthy Berserker of the Red Legion, Cricket is a kin meaning though she is completely blind her canine nose is all she needs to see. Cricket is known as the secret weapon of the Red legion though this is far from true, The rumor was only started because of how rarely she has been seen, being a master of stealth.
Image

Shank:
Wild berserker of the Doomgaurd, Shank is a hot headed elf who is known to start fights with people of authority. While most members of the Doomgaurd don't pay him much mind and are quick to say he's not a member as a joke against him Shank is always by their side when it comes to large battles. Though it has only been seen once Shank's most legendary feat was when he turned himself into a giant dire wolf and devoured a lich.
Image

Grey:
Battlemage and only well known member of the unrepentant, Grey is believed to be a scaleborn though he has no tail so it's hard to tell. Grey is known for appearing in a cloud of frost and never taking more then an instinct to kill his prey. his most famous tale is actually his only loss against Tarkise, seeker of the spurned.
Image

Black:
a member of the doomgaurd, Black is an undead who died roughly 200 years ago of due to years of torture. His skin is riddled scars and stitched on skin. Black's most famous tale is of when he was devoured by the black dragon Margo and froze it from the inside out as the rest of the Doomgaurd battled from the outside. while black is debatible the strongest it is only because he can seemingly not die.
Image

Red:
mage of the unrepentant, she is an infernal plane-touched though not much else is known about her other then she has been seen at ever attack on a deity's church or holy place moments before it happens.
Image

Tarkise, Seeker of the spurned:
supposedly undead member of the Doomgaurd, Tarkise has never been seen outside of his armor or been known to speak so not much is known about him. he never goes on missions with the Doomgaurd but somehow always appears when needed. his most famous feat was his battle against Grey in which both his weapons were cut in half but Tarkise continued to charge in like an unstoppable force. As Tarkise charged at Grey but just as Tarkise was almost in reach Grey faded into a mist of ice before as he appeared behind Tarkise. Tarkise had already seen The battlemage's trick coming though and turned around grabbing Grey by his throat before he could even step out the mist freezing Tarkise' hand closed around the battle mage's throat.
Image

The Hound:
The captain of the Doomgaurd, The hound is a nede with elven features and carries a long lightning infused glave. though he isn't often seen in battle anymore hundreds of stories could be told about the hulking galioth and his travels with the Doomgaurd. The hounds most famous tale was the day himself and black first fought together to defeat the Demon Sarthal and formed the Doomgaurd.
Image

The Mountain:
weapons expert of the Doomgaurd and financial adviser, This nede woman is known to not only to be strong but smart unlike most of her race. though The Mountain doesn't often find time to adventure with the other doom guard her most famous Tale was of the Time she Pinned the mighty dragon Margo to the ground by sticking so many Large steel arrows in it it could no longer fly with ease.
Image

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Races:
elf:
A human like race and one of the earliest to stand on 2 legs. Elves are easily identified by their long pointed ears and slender bodies and have a natural affinity to magic. Many elves view plane touched as demi-gods, sometimes even looking for dimensional holes to give birth near, and have a long history of either worshiping them or draining them for their power.

Kin:
A canine race of known for their amazing sense of smell and endurance making them great trackers and hunters. Kin come in many shapes sizes and colors meaning their all good with different jobs and skills. The Kin are naturally loyal and have a long history of fighting other peoples battles both as slaves or comrades. The homeland of the Kin is Eastmarch to the north east, a cold and vast land that only the strongest and fluffiest races could survive in.

Scaleborn:
scaleborn come like the kin also come in multiple different shapes, sizes and colors as well as horn shapes, neck lengths and body types. being one of the newer races The scaleborn have yet to claim a land of their own and are commonly used as slaves though their rubbery skin and skinny bones make it easy for them to escape any cage. though they have no land to call their own scaleborn were first seen in the swamps west of Bastial and are hunted like deer to be made into slaves.

gnome:
the shortest and one of the oldest races Gnomes are known for being greedy and having a natural desire for treasure or anything shiny. Though they are often made fun of by Taller races Gnomes are smart and hard workers. The gnome capital is Duna to the south, an underground labyrinth that anyone not born their would find impossible to traverse.

human: As the most common race humans control most of east. Though they have no amazing qualities humans are known for being ambitious and sneaky by the other races and are generally un-trusted.

nede: Nedes or The Nedic people are a pre-evolution of humans closer to giants. standing Nedes are usually around 8 feet tall and are said to be born ripped(not true). Nedes are naturally good at math and angles making them great archers and architects though most races think of them as stupid giants because of their slow way of talking and clumsiness.

plane-touched: Creatures or people touched either at birth or by sometime in life by another plane. The world around us is distorted and sometimes holes, sometimes big sometimes microscopic, into other dimensions appear effecting the world around us, living and not. As a plane touched you can either be a water touched, fire touched, earth touched, abyss touched(dark), infernal touched(demonic), or divine touched(angelic). Those who are touched have there skin, eyes and sometimes even hair changed to represent the element, though generally keep some semblance of their previous race.

Info: (will be filled out more as I think of more. help is appreciated.)
DMing:
In this rp I would like to play the role of a narrator, describing all scenes and controlling the NPCs. As DM I'll also be describing what your character sees separately from the others. Each race has their own perks that I have chosen to not include in their description so as to keep meta gaming to a minimum, though they are hinted to. Anytime I describe something that only one character sees, smells, hears, or feels will be described in a side note, which you'll be able to recognize because it'll say "(sidenote:".

World building:
The planet our characters live on is called Arbor and was formed is believed by most races to have been created by Nohr, god of the void and dying light, using the sun as his tool box. In the beginning there was only Nohr and the stars. Compelled by his perpetual loneliness Nohr pulled from one of the many stars that surrounded him and created planets along with all that inhabit them but was still unsatisfied, so he pulled from the sun again. This is where the lore differs between races. The kin and elves believe Nohr created the goddess plea, goddess of the moon and wasted tears, and Morne, God of war and comradery, first. It is said that Nohr's Loneliness was unsatisfying as he continued to make new gods. The humans feared their dying light and so the new gods forced Nohr inside of the sun imprisoning him.

Mixed races:
Interracial Pregnancy only works for certain races. And it is dependent on who the mother is in this world. the child will always look like the same race as the mother with features of the father. There are reasons for this that if the group wants to find out will have to role play for it. Scaleborn cannot breed or have any children with any non Scaleborn race. That being said Interracial relationships are perfectly fine, just realize that if your a Scaleborn race with another you cannot have any children.

First mission: (I was gonna give you guys options but I already have this mission pretty written out)

Gaurd mission:
You approached shank(or maybe he approached you) in hopes of becoming a well known legend one day. "What? you're looking for work huh?" he ask glaring up and down at you. "Alright, there's this bridge maker trying to get to Sinlyn. He needs someone who can escort him their and protect him and the village till he's done. The job 'll take a week. Take it or leave it." He says crossing his arms and leaning against the wall behind him. You agree to the mission and Shank gives you a faint smile almost as if he's relieved. "Good, I also need you to deliever a package to a Plane-touched kid in that village. His name is Kafka." The elvin man says turning around to walk away before suddenly stopping with a stomp. "Oh yeah, the guy your escorting is named Calton Mordo. He'll be waiting to meet you at the tavern by the city gate." Before walking away Shank tells you how many people will be joining you on your mission and leaves with his hands in his pocket and a faint smile on his face.

NICE! I wrote down a lot of notes for this mission and nothing written at all for the heist, so this helps a lot. On the other hand I did like you're character a lot and it'll suck not having her around, but I understand school comes first. Don't be a stranger.
