Welcome to Capriccioso, a world that lives, just beyond our surface dreams, a world that the musically inclined can sometimes reach into easily. In Capriccioso, music is power. The weapons of war are instruments, made to be as a weapon. A piano cannon, a violin bow, a bell hammer, it continues on and on. The wars of this world, disguise their bloody intentions with the sweet music in their battle. Singing is the same as magic, the songs of singers and minstrals, healing the wounded, curing the sick, and even fending off attackers.
Capriccioso has been in a tiime of peace for some time, and new music has arrived within the world. Jazz, Rock and Roll, Pop, and more continue to show. As more music appears, more kingdoms appear as well, and the music is causing conflict among the kingdoms of Capriccioso. The kingdom of Blues, capital of the Land of Rock, has ordered war upon the Baroque kingdom, that which strived for so long before. The Jazz and Pop kingdoms are at war, only because of differences in their music. However, subgenres, the smaller kingdoms, don't always have a problem with eachother, such as the J-pop kingdom, and the Classic Rock. But the problem still remains.
Now, we focus on a boy, a 16 year old boy, named Benjamin Francis Wailand. He is a musical genius, as his teacher has told him. The boy wishes to become a great composer and conductor, there's only one problem. He has an illness that has sent him into a coma. Its the first day of his coma, and his family sit around the hospital bed. The most they can do is keep him alive and work his muscles, hoping he will awake. Before his comma he was thinking of a new song to make, but had a creative block. Now he approaches Capriccioso. Unbeknownst to everyone, he may be a deciding factor in the end of war throughout Capriccioso.
The kingdom of Classical, the Capital of Baroque, a large society that dresses much like people of the Renaissance period. They have carrages, boats, and recently began working with Cameras and hand carried Gunpowder Weapons. Wheel lock is their newest technology. Within Baroque, live many other classical music kingdoms, such as the masters of magic, the Opera Kingdom. Baroque is to the Northwest in this world, and covers a large amount of land. Baroque also has many sea ports to their west.
The kingdom of Blues is the capitol of Rock. Rock is a country to the south east of Baroque. This kingdom is used to very cold and rocky areas. They're society is used to steam powered engines, but not steam punk. The usual attire of Rock is usually something warm, and tight, such as leather. This country specializes in brute strength and fire magic. Inbetween Rock and Baroque is the country of Country. Rock has many Rogue Countries that like to go off by themselves, attacking other countries for more room.
Country is a vast country with few inhabitants. They are viewed as barbarians by most, as they wear hides and are less advanced as the other countries. They are very peacful though, and love nature, but will turn vicious if threatened. There have been reports of children lost and raised by animals in this country.
To the East of Baroque, North of Rock, lies the desert island country of Jazz. Jazz has many nomadic groups that usually stick to the rivers and ocean. They are very attuned with harmful magic and affliction magic. Most from this country wear robes and other light clothing. To the south of Jazz and North of rock, is R&B.
R&B is looked down at for its choice in song music, most of their society however live along the sea, and enjoy free trade among all countries, allowing agreeable people to live there.
In the ocean are 7 Islands that share a country together kown as Pop, depite not having just pop. Techno, Reagae, and others live on the islands, but act as a single kingdom also. These islands usual attire are those of the far east. They also enjoy having steam punk style technology, as well as a very effective fishing company.
This RP is a fantast adventure RP, that I'd also call an expirament. Its a musical RP, not singing or what not, but very music based. Coming up with lyrics or notes for songs helps you in and out of battle. Their are regular instruments as well mind you. In this RP, I hope to start a new RP trend, dispite my failed attempts at previous RPs before. This will also be unique, as you won't have to bum rush somewhere the GM points. A war is occurring, but life can still go on as usual. You can make whatever you want for a weapon. But I would like it if you kept it to a certain limit. For example, a singer could use a spear microphone stand. For J-pop fans, as a shout out to Miku, you can use a megaphone pistol. Gunpowder weapons is as far as these societies have gotten, keep in mind please. If there are any questions, constructive critisism, etc. Just ask or say, and I will do my best to respond to those. This RP I have wanted to do for a very long time, but never thought that I had the time for it. But now I have done it and taken 2 1/2 hours to type and reread this. CS will be put into the OOC, should this be voted through.
