Now I’m going to warn you now, unlike the fast paced RPs I have run in the past, I now have a full time 9am-5pm job, which means that I have less time to post, (meaning the RP will progress a little slower than normal). If you don’t have a problem with that, then sign up!
It also wont be a large player team, as I do have to read the posts before I can reply.
Heroic Tales- the Epilogue RP
The story behind it.
The empire of man has stood for thousands of years now.. the world still spins in its tiny plot.. The sun still rises in the west and sets in the east.. However there are people who wish to end all this..
The year is 1108 AF (after founding), the world is much like that of our own, four massive continents separated by seas known as Albion, it all started with the founding, the original flush of magic that swept over the land and created everything we know.. at least to a basic extent.. Creatures, trees and man themselves..
Years flew by, man changed.. Man grew.. And we prospered.. the great empire of Sertious the third sits in the middle of the great plane of Anixia, it stands were the first man laid clam to land, constructed of many cities inside a great towering wall.. and this is the root of everything else.. the first city.
Man began to control magic around 300AF, we learnt of its almost un-nameable amounts of types and quality’s.. anything in the imagination is possible with magic..some scholars even believe that magic is the power of ones imagination fused with the powers of the earth and sky. Now there are many empires and cities just devoted to its study, the most famous is Alexandria, the floating city of mages.. it sits above the west sea, around four hundred meters above sea level.
The creatures of the world mirror that of ours, in both magic and mundane, others exist too and these creatures of much more rarity and interest by the scholars of Albion,(note, timer will be providing a few creatures and things for the RP, so expect some cool creatures )
Religion is an odd concept in Albion, the common belief is in magic as the main focus of thought, however gods and goddesses do have followings in this world, many creatures have become and still are gods.. some believe that the gods are just monstrous beings of magic.. the collected imaginations of thousands of followers, which with the thought based powers of magic is becoming a common thought in itself.
Technology is largely unheard of, Alexandria is the foremost researcher of magical devices and alchemy, and so they are the most advanced in the world when it comes to mechanised production and weaponry. Most places have small amount such as magical defences for towns and street lamps, but hand held personal devices are more expensive than hand crafted and then enchanted bows, swords and armour thus they are less popular with smaller counties.
Magic flows through every being, this is recognised as the norm.. not everyone can produce bolts of lightning or balls of flame.. but archers use it to aims there shots.. and fighter to strike they foes with wicked slashes and deadly accuracy.. everyone uses magic, imagination or not.. but those who harness the powers of their mind can be the most powerful of all…
(Those that played in the Heroic tales RP would recognise this as their start... But a turn of events has happened, and even though the RP was never finished, they did not complete their quest)
The world has been thrown into turmoil. The Mage Victoria had tricked the heroes and collected the blood ruby from their hands, no longer in the safety of the floating city of Alexandria, the city that crashed into the island below it, dragged out the sky by a monstrous soul splitter.
Broken they fled, their lives the only thing they had left, fleeing to the ocean on James Siren’s mighty warship
They had handed Victoria her victory...
Or so she had thought...
It is nearly six years later since Alexandria fell from the sky, six years have passed and not a word has been breathed of the dark soul that had taken the blood ruby from its resting place. But something else has happened, a plague spreading to the four corners of the land. Slowly killing off cattle and pigs...Magical creatures falling ill and bought to an untimely death.... but now the first humans have caught the plague, a monstrous disease of magic and death.
You are will be nominated to find out what the hell is happening, and stop it whether you were the failed heroes that caused this new hell, or someone near you has conducted the plague and you wish to save them, or maybe your just an innocent bystander in the drunken archer tavern. You don’t really have a choice...
For fear of ripping off DnD games here are the stats. An average human is stated around 9, 10, and 11.
Max Stat is 18 at this level (to go up as you progress) - Points to spend 60
Strength: How strong your character is, this will also reflect on how much damage he can cause in combat and with melee weapons.
Dexterity: How flexible your character is, or how skilled, if he is really good with a longbow, or want him to be able to free run across buildings this is the way to choose.
Constitution: How much battering your character can take before he goes down like a bag of shit.
Intelligence: This is how cleaver your character is, what they may know about the world, or creatures, or maybe how to kill creatures that most others wouldn’t know about.
Magic: How powerful your spells are, in all aspects. (It may be damage for a fireball, or how long a magical shield will hold, or how real an illusion looks)

These need to be followed during the course of the RP.
1~ No god-modding! I will have ZERO tolerance with it. If it was by accident, I will ask for an edit. If I get complaining, I will ask you to leave.
2~ Stay on my good side. I’m a great person and very reasonable. If you get on my nerves, I will kick you out. Respect me and I will do the same to you.
3~ Be prepared for anything. I am adding some things in this RP that some people might not approve of, but just keep in mind that your character can very well die or lose in this RP. If they do, make preparations for making a new character to keep playing or leave. The choice is up to you.
4~ If a death is in order, I will be the one to call the shots! If you have some plan on dying by some other player, send it to me through the PM’s. I will end up killing characters mostly though.
5~ Please use correct spelling and grammar! Now, if you knew Kyuu when she played on here, she was the grammar and spelling Nazi. I am not that, but please try to read over your posts to make sure if you missed something. If you need to, use Mozilla or Word to spell check your posts. If you made a couple mistakes, I will not say anything.
6~ Please follow everything on your CS! From the personality to the stats, everything should be played accordingly. I have a reason why the stats have been created, and that’s to keep people from god-modding.
