[REQ](F) The Watch

Post by Archer_Algren » Sun Jun 11, 2017 2:20 am

As always, Ankh-Morpork is a bustling hive of activity. The largest city on The Disc, it has prospered under the rule of Lord Havelock Vetinari (according to Lord Havelock Vetinari) and is constantly growing. Of course, the rise in population means a rise in economic welfare, as well as a rise in pollution and general scum and villainy. (Although with the formation of the Thieves Guild, Assasin's Guild, and Beggar's Guild, at the request of Lord Vetinari, crime has now become Organized Crime. And organization is a step in the right direction.)

The City Watch does its best to protect the citizens of Ankh-Morpork, but has trouble keeping up with the rate at which one large city can cause mayhem. Not to mention the fact that the Unseen University, the School of Wizardry, is constanly accidentally opening portals to new dimensions or dumping toxic potions into the Ankh River, mutating local wildlife. As a result, the Watch is recruiting. Volunteers are usually somewhat scarce, so the Watch is willing to accept just about anybody. All recruits are promised five Ankh-Morpork dollars and their own uniform when they join.

What happens when a bunch of rag-tag watchmen (and watchwomen) are given a relatively small task and left on their own? In Ankh-Morpork, the answer is usually "nothing good."

Weapon/s: since the watch cannot afford to give everybody weapons, you'll have to bring your own.

Werewolves
Felpiers(cat people)
Talking Animals
Erdgeists(earth spirits in mechanical bodies)
Golems
Sprites
Drakes(dragon ladies.... and men.)
Celestians(sorta like angels)
Diablons(humanoid demons)
Trolls
Nac Mac Feegle
... and others.

NOTE: if you want to make a unique race for your character, run it by me, this RP is more on the comedic side of things but it does have a plot, think CSI+Lord of the rings+Monty Python.

Name: Pyos Mewluwinski

Species: Felpiers

Age: 23

Gender: male

App: 5’6, a bit lanky, medium long brown hair, green eyes, eye liner, and sharp painted nails. Always wears a necklace with a star shaped stone for good luck.

Weapon/s: a few homemade yarn bombs and a sword he found at a flea market

Bio: Pyos had a fairly happy family life. He lived with his parents and two older sisters, Kendi and Mimi, who used to dress him up when he was little. They are the reason he paints his nails and wears eyeliner. The three had an incredible bond as they would often make trouble, but were almost always able to get away with it due to their cuteness and skills. Pyos has always been a little on the emotional side, so usually Kendi would fight for him. She taught him how to be a better fighter and stand up for himself, but he is still emotional. This is partly why he joined the Watch after going through a bad break up.

Hey, a few quick questions; would it be OK if i made someone for the assassins guild instead, or do you want to keep it to only the watch? also powers/magic allowed or no?

You can be from the guild and still join the watch, the only reason people join the Assassin's Guild is for the high quality of education so think of it more like a boarding school, not everybody who graduates from the Guild goes on to become an assassin, the Assassin's guild is basically Hogwarts+Assassins of Assassin's creed, as for powers and magic, they are exclusive to witches and wizards, not assassins, it takes years to learn magic, and the Assassins guild doesn't teach magic.

Character Template
Name: Gaiseric Vikyr
Species: Human
Age: 20
App: Gaiseric is handsome, in a wolfish and rouge-ish way. He is lean from life on the streets, with pale, slightly hairy yet slender limbs, and chest. His face is kite-shaped ending in a sharp chin, with curly yet rough; raven black hair and laughing blue eyes with a trade mark sly smile.
Weapon(s): A nicked dirk with still a few stains of dried blood, a sling with smooth stones and soft lead balls, and a surprisingly unused short sword and buckler.
Bio: Gaiseric can't exactly say he was born in Ankh-Morpork, his dad was a mercenary and cutthroat who travelled from warband to warband, fighting on one side then the next morning fighting against that side. His mother was a beautiful yet minor lady of a proud but, impoverished house who fell in love with the witty cutthroat. Their love story began when his mother was looking out at one of their stony turrets in their manse when he caught sight of the rugged man and was enchanted, the man felt her stare, looked up and smiled, the woman's world was rocked. He courted her, although, tried to, would be a more apt term. The woman's family didn't approve. For how could this dirty lowborn thug marry a lady of higher stock! The woman cried but still she sought the man. One night, she helped him get inside the manse. It was love!...Or so she thought. The dad broke into the manse and stole what little riches they had and fled with Gaiseric's mother whom he made a washerwoman. Gaiseric's childhood was marked by wandering, going from place-to-place, getting into fist fights, cold nights, a rumbling stomach, and a drunkard dad who left him and his mother bloody and bruised. His faithful night was when his dad was killed by a stiletto to the ribs. At age 14 to provide for his mother he took part in criminal activities, there he discovers his deadly ability with daggers, killing his first man. At age 17, he was the gang's top assassin. The city was seiged, and using his connections he was able to escape with his mother, with only one destination: home. He went back to Ankh-Morpork, figuring maybe his mother's family would welcome them back. He was only partially correct, his mother was accepted back out of pity, yet his son was thrown into jail and was about to be hanged for robbery but only through his mother's influence he was sent to the Watch.

So how intelligent are talking animals and do they learn it or just naturally have the ability to talk?

They usually got their ability to talk thanks to magic, whether leaking from Unseen University's experimental Thaumic Reactor or by a witch or wizard giving them the ability to talk.

Name: Jinx

Species: Talking animal (Cat)

Age: 4 Cat years or 26 human years

Gender: Female

App: Jinx is a completely black, Napoleon cat. She is only around 25 cm in size and has piercing green eyes. She wears a collar with a pentagram on it and a dark purple cape.

Weapon/s: Claws and teeth

Bio: Jinx was born a witch’s cat; her mother was a witch’s cat yet had died giving birth to her and her siblings. Her siblings were giving away to other people while she had stayed with Jasmine. After a few years of doing what a cat normally does, which is eat, sleep and annoy, while Jasmine was out Jinx drank the brew that was in the cauldron and gained the ability to talk to other people and quickly felt like an outcast. So she decided to leave the house in fear of Jasmine becoming angry at her for being her. She eventually reached Ankh-Morpork and started sneaking into libraries, both magical and non-magical to try and learn more about the world with varied results. She eventually joined The Watch because she was bored out of her mind

Just so you guys know what sort of RP this is, here is the Ankh-morpork national anthem:

"When dragons belch and hippos flee
My thoughts, Ankh-Morpork, are of thee
Let others boast of martial dash
For we have boldly fought with cash
We own all your helmets, we own all your shoes
We own all your generals - touch us and you'll lose.
Morporkia! Morporkia!
Morporkia owns the day!
We can rule you wholesale
Touch us and you'll pay.
We bankrupt all invaders, we sell them souvenirs
We ner ner ner ner ner, hner ner hner by the ears
Er hner we ner ner ner ner ner
Ner ner her ner ner ner hner the ner
Er ner ner hner ner, nher hner ner ner (etc.)
Ner hner ner, your gleaming swords
We mortgaged to the hilt
Morporkia! Morporkia!
Hner ner ner ner ner ner
We can rule you wholesale
Credit where it's due."
