If you're willing to consistently post a paragraph and want more depth than casual, try this on for size. (5-10 sentences per post, on average.)

Seems fun
Sorry about his dog though lol. Not sure if it works on phone (I'm on mobile but it's on my iPad). If you hit full editor and preview however all the features should be there.

I'm interested. I'd like to throw in a sheet for a Mercenary from Sargoth please? Do I need to know anything about Sargoth (other than it's where this plague seems to have stemmed from) that you'd like me to work into the sheet?

I intend my character to have left there a decade past but to have heard of its affliction.

So now is probably a good time to talk about how I imagine the world. It’s a large island, roughly the size of England, with dense forests and mountain ranges sitting in the center. Caladria is the starting town and is on the very southern tip of the island, hence why is has water on one side of it. The area in front of it is an open plain but most of it is sparse forests and hills. East is the same but slightly more flatlands along with lakes and rivers. West is essentially all flatlands, or if it’s easier to imagine tall grassed plains. And the North is mostly cold and harsh, not like an Arctic scenario, but more like a tundra I would say. Sargoth castle itself is built on a mountain pass, which you will see later.

Types of troops in the East are usually more Nordic in style. Leather, chain mail, large round shields, you get the point. Good infantry, decent armor. West is essentially the Huns/Dothraki, the large plains require movement on horseback. Their troops are things like light lancers or horse archers more than anything. The North is the classic medieval style. Infantry with pikes, fairly heavy armor, with elite knights mixed into that group. And he South is mainly light troops, a lot of training in the South focuses on archery, using the terrain to their advantage in a way.

Way more explanation than I though I’d give but I may as well let it be common knowledge.

Name: Joseph vender
Gender: male
Age: 26

Backstory: "backstory........ backstory......... where did i leave that?" A man in a laboratory white apron was rummaging through several boxes as he muttered some curses at the air.

"Cure for pigs foot....... no, don't need that" he threw a phial that contained a pink liquid into the background, causing a minor explosion. He didn't seem to notice it, "treatment for itchy rash?" He gave this phial a prolonged look, then shrugged and promptly threw it on the floor. Where it pooled and prooceeded to melt through the wooden boards. "Note to self: a pinch less of sulfuric acid"

Dusting himself off, he ruffled his air and said "I can't find my backstory! I guess I could just say it, but that would be too anti-climatic. What to do?" He folded his fingers together and looked into nothing for a while.

Snapping his fingers, Joseph looked back at his visitors and practically shouted "I got it! I'll just show you my backstory, it's so simple. Here, follow me!". With that, the man started to run through the maze of haphazardly placed chemicals, all the while calling out for his audience to follow.

The man finally stopped in front of a painted picture that showed Joseph kneeling beside a clearly sick child and spoon feeding them what looked like black tar. The caption read 'hero saves village from countless death's. Grinning from ear to ear, Joseph proudly announced "are you impressed, I can tell your impressed! You should be after all, this picture portrays when I visited sargoth several Years back and saved them from some new disease"

Joseph's smile was replaced with a frown as he said with a bit less tempo in his voice "this was, of course, before the death plaque that decimated sargoth a few months back. Come to think of it......... all those children I saved are probably dead now."

After a few moments however, Joseph's smile was back as he proudly stated "but nevermind that! The point is, I'm a famous doctor *cough* famous being a relative term *cough* and it won't be long before I find a cure for this new disease, just like I've done with all the others!"

Looking at his watch, Joseph's face contorted into a worried expression "sorry friend, but it looks like i have to answer that adventures ad before I'm too late. So, in order to speed this up, I'll just belt the last stuff out of the way!" He started to pushhis audience towards the exit as he continued talking.

"I was born on this continent to wealthy nobels, which is why I'm able to afford my lab. I'm a well known scientist, as you already know, I plan on collecting blood and tissue samples on this new quest to try and make a cure, or a vaccine so I can make my name big in the name of science" he shoved the audience onto the street and grabbed the door handle

"And as for a tragic backstory................ my dog died of old age when I was just 12. Woest me!" With that, he slammed the door shut.

Personality: Joseph is often scatter brained, and erratic. He never seems to be able to pay attention to anything for a prolonged period of time.......ohhhhh shiny! Where was I? Oh yeah, Joseph

Joseph never could make any friends when he was younger, often due to his inability to think before he opened his mouth. "You look funny" "why are you so fat?" And "you smell!" All were phrases he spat out as a small lad. He didn't intend to be mean, quite the opposite, he thought he was being friendly by telling the other children about their flaws so they could correct them. He thought wrong.

Disclaimer: I am not the artist, I am not receiving payment for posting this. If the original artist asks me to take this down, I will.

(I am on a phone and cannot figure out how to post a proper picture on here, so I guess this link will have to do)
I can help out with the picture later when i’m home. I’ll approve but is there any way I could ask that you look for an appearance to fit the period a bit better? Or just a plague doctor outfit with the same face.

Other than my very specific small issues with it you’re all good. There will be a lot of fighting in this so bringing a support character is going to be interesting.

How many were you hoping for before getting started? Personally I'd like one more myself but also could see 3 working if wanted

Name: Carmine Lott
Gender: Female
Age: 27
Backstory:
She was born to a peasant family in a large city who resented having another mouth to feed when they were already struggling to get by. Carmine left home as soon as she could for Sargoth, fighting for scraps in the street until she managed to sweet-talk a member of the city guard into training her as his apprentice. While she enjoyed the relative safety and security of a steady paycheck, having to answer to her superiors every day and to spend her time chasing after small-time thieves wore on Carmine's patience: the life of a city guard wasn't for her.

When she was 19 she left Sargoth for good, having decided to make her down way as professional treasure hunter; she doesn't appricate being called a mercenary. She soon fell in a with a tag-tag group of other young adventurers, becoming friends with them and caring for them as family. They eventually became somewhat-renown adventurers known to take whatever strange or dangerous quests are asked of them in between searching for rumored hidden cities of gold, provided that their employers can pay up. They've done escorts for merchants, guarding and/or stealing cursed artifacts, helping out noble's power struggles, etc. As long as you've got the gold, they would do the job.

When the dead began to rise in Sargoth, Carmine and her crew were celebrating the successful end of a long mission by getting drunk off their asses. In the panic and confusion as the city tried to evacuate, she was separated from the rest and hasn't seen them since. She maintains steadfastly to anyone who asks that they're alive, and that she's going to find them.

Personality:
Carmine is extroverted and energetic, having never been shy a day in her life. Her tendency to be overfamiliar with relative strangers can come across as rather rude; while she's not malicious, she doesn't care that she gets under people's nerves or if they dislike her. She's very cheerful and friendly, especially towards kids, but her temper is both violent and unpredictable: it can be very easy to rile her up enough for her to try and stab someone.

She has no love lost for her family or her homeland, but has a lot of loyalty towards her friends; there's little she wouldn't do for them. If someone was going to try to appeal to her better nature, it'd be through that loyalty.

Appearance: Very masculine in appearance and has a raspy voice. She's often mistaken for a man, which she finds hilarious.

I mean multiple can be from the same place. I don’t mind. But it’s up to you.

Carmine is accepted.

And also Az i’m hoping for 4-5 people, possibly more. Depends on the characters we get honestly. If there are a good amount of strong fighters then most of what I have planned will be doable. Which is a lot of fun stuff. I’m honestly excited to actually put this much thought into an RP, most of my past ideas were just god awful.
