Fantasy Blood & Ruin (A Fantasy Role-Play)

At first the world was nothing - a blank slate, void of all colour and life. This blank slate was a canvas for The Creator, painting his world with whatever he had desired. Lush forests, vast valleys, and endless oceans, there was no limit to what The Creator had envisioned. Once the landscapes were painted, it was now time to populate the world with his children. In a lone, massive desert, far from any forest and oceans, sprouted a plant. This plant soon began to grow, growing larger and larger until it became a tree. A tree that was much more monstrous than any other. It’s branches stretched across the sky, visible from the horizon and its leaves large enough to cover lakes. The tree, once fully grown, began to bear fruit. The first fruit fell from the branches of the tree to the world below, smashing it to pieces as it hit the desert sand. Out of this fruit, came a being - the first of its kind, this was The Creator’s plan. To give birth to the inhabitants of the world, through the Creation Tree. As each fruit fell to the world, each one gave birth to a new being, and the world as we know it, began to take form.

Location: Continent of Aras | Country: Salos​

The World has entered the Third Era. Currently in the midst of a Civil War, the King of Salos, known as King Gabriel, is warring with the rebellion group known as Grandora. Diaz, the leader of this rebellion group, is currently gaining a lot of traction in the country, vowing to end King Gabriel’s reign, and become the leader of the country in his place. Diaz offers the people of Salos a much more aggressive approach to international affairs, compared to King Gabriel. Wanting to invade other countries, and expand his empire, Diaz claims that other countries will take advantage of King Gabriel’s passive nature, and it’s only a matter of time before Salos becomes the receiving end of a dispute among countries. Although some people side with Diaz, many people consider his approach to be too extreme, evident in current events, where his forces have been razing and taking over villages and towns, in an effort to expand his rebellion’s hold on the country. As of right now, Grandora has most of their captured regions within the north-eastern part of the country, however, they have been slowly making their way to central Salos, as well as reports of some forces being seen in western Salos as well. As of right now, only time will tell of how the war will be played out, and whether or not we continue to be ruled under Gabriel, or possibly Diaz.

Welcome to my role-play! Blood & Ruin is set in a typical medieval/fantasy setting, and is not part of any existing franchise/series. Because of this, there will be lots of world building, and I will update the Lore as I see fit.

The role-play will currently begin in the town of Bellus. As it was stated in the beginning of the post, the country is currently in the middle of a civil war, with the rebellion group known as Grandora being the main antagonist. Bellus however, is located in the southern-central portion of the country, where it has been largely unaffected by the war at this point in time. Because of this, the town has still been quaint and bustling with people continuing their day-to-day lives. There has been a large presence of guards sent from the Royal Capital to increase a bit of security in the town, just as a safety precaution. There are markets, farmland, as well as various other businesses located in town such as a blacksmith, mills, etc.

Although there are Non-Human races that exist (such as Elves), these races are not going to be playable. I'm trying to flesh out the Lore for these races throughout the role-play, and so that's why they will be locked for the time being. Magic also exists in this role-play, but not at the beginning of this role-play. If players wish to learn magic, I will make it available as the RP progresses, for select players. But for now, do not worry about it. Monsters will also exist (monsters as in, non-animal creatures), and I will be creating a monster-index of sorts for these creatures.

Your character is currently a citizen of the town of Bellus. How they got there, is up to you. It’s possible they were born there, travelled there for work, or came from another country. What they do for work, or their day-to-day life, is also up to you! I will note, this role-play IS an adventure role-play. Because of this, keep in mind when making your character, as the story will force them to travel away from Bellus at some point, due to the war.

Rules + World Rules

1. All Forum Rules Apply
2. This is a rather darker roleplay, so I guess I rate it “m” for all the usual stuff (swearing, some gore, adult themes). Please don't abuse this, and use it as an excuse to swear excessively or be crude or vulgar. I rated it this, to give a bit more freedom with writing.
3. No godmodding. As said before, this is not an RP about fighting, but make the fighting realistic. If your character got hit, make sure you describe they actually got hit and not just shook it off like it was nothing ( a punch to the face does hurt).
4. No having multiple characters
5. No bunnying other characters without permission. However, something I do allow, is for you to bunny my character if you need to (you don’t have to ask me, unless you think it is something out of the ordinary for my character to do).
6. Not really a rule, but please give me critique if you don’t like something. For example, if you guys absolutely hate the whole chapter thing, then please let me know and I will most likely scrap it. With that said, if you have an idea for a chapter or want to have one revolving around your own character or whatever, please let me know.
7. Once again, not really a rule, however, I should note that this roleplay is not based around any existing franchise of the sort. It is simply my own creation.


The Sign-Up Sheet

Name

(Straightforward. A First name and middle or last name (if they have one)).

Age
(Age doesn’t generally doesn't matter in this roleplay. Could play as an old man, middle aged woman, etc. Just have it make sense please.)

Gender
(Again, straightforward.)

Appearance
(Good description of your character. Picture does not substitute for writing. Only human characters.)

Personality
(Explain their personality. Their traits, habits, how they behave etc.)

Background
(Probably the most important section. Detail anything here, from their origins, social class/status, occupation, family, or anything else that would fit in here.)

Weapon
(This is OPTIONAL. Your character will be getting a weapon as per story anyways, but if you want them to start with one, that's okay. If you do choose to start with a weapon, choose a basic one for now).

Other
(Anything else you want to add?)


______________

I am only looking for around 4-6 players, as I do not think I am capable of handling any more than that. Because of this, I sadly will not be able to accept every single player that wishes to sign-up, so I will be not only looking for players on a first-come first-serve basis, but also on the quality of the role-play. If your sign-up/character has anything in it that I would consider to be 'lore-breaking', I will let you know!

Hi!!

K soooooo questions:

  • So is this a plot for our charries just to be regular people caught up in the war then? or do we take sides: Crown vs. Rebels?
  • Is this like lord of the Rings or can we be people of colour?
  • How gritty or grounded is this RP? LIke no magic elves or orcs so is this more like survival adventure then?
  • The charrie sheet asks about social staus and class. Does age play a role? And like are women treated much differently in Bellus than men?

Hi there! Fantastic questions :) I will answer to the best of my ability:

1) Generally speaking, they would be regular people. I mean, sure they can have a political view, but for the most part, the rebels are inherently considered to be the 'bad side'. For example, my character that I am working on, is a Crown Guard that's currently stationed out in Bellus, so I guess the extent of his 'taking-sides' is simply his job.
2) You can definitely be someone of colour!
3) Magic does exist in this role-play, but for the most part it's locked for players as of right now. Elves do exist, and are the original creators of magic, however they do not generally reside in human towns and cities, hence the lack of magic. Lore-wise, yes there are humans that can learn magic if they have the aptitude for it, and if they can get ahold of lessons and literature that would instruct someone to learn it. Because of the aptitude needed, not everyone can learn it, no matter how hard they try. However, most Elves can indeed learn it. If you want your character to learn magic, let me know and we can work that into the story as well.
4) Age does not play a direct role, but keep in mind of mature themes. And I wouldn't say women are treated that much differently, however, that can't be said for some other towns (or countries for that matter), as Bellus is a rather decently civilized place.

Hopefully that answers your questions!

K cool. thx for answers

So my charrie concept is a dancing/acrobat that is part of a popular troupe of performers that is making a {enter x amount of time} long stay in Belus (or is part of a popular local entertainment group, either is good). She's got many suitors but sorta plays them all against each other to get gifts and food. It's not that she's mean, it's more that her younger bro is manipulative and guilts her into doing it for the 'best interests' of their 'family' of performers. That and she's actually juuuuuust a liiiiiittttle bit kinda, sorta REALLY gay too lol. But she hidden in the closet cuz she knows from experience that outside of Bellus, that could be detrimental or even dangerous to reveal.

So she is defo so not a warrior of any kind. Like she can do trick shots with a bow but has never shot anyone before. Not even a little rodent. And as much as I would so looooooooove for her to learn magic, I'mma sit this one out and see how it goes to play a normie for a bit of a change lol

Awesome! That sounds really cool, I like that! If you don't mind, I can utilize the performance troupe in the initial chapter of the role-play? Sort of like it sets a mood and something for people to look forward to in a time of bleakness and the grim state of the world.

Haha don't worry about that: I will try hard to make sure there's a decent variety of characters. Part of the fun is not having everyone be some sort of fighting expert.

Hello. This seems interesting and I've been wanting to get back into role-playing something medieval themed for a while.

Quick question, are there any types of characters wanted? That might benefit the story or world building?

Hey there! I think as of right now there’s a lot of possibilities so you definitely have the freedom to create whatever! I am not sure if we have any characters that plan to utilize magic, but that’s always an option too!

Hmmm. Any lore on the magic? Type of magics? How it works? Also what type of person might develop or learn magic?

Magic is generally versatile. However, it is also volatile and unpredictable. For example, there's basic healing magic that can heal wounds and suppress bleeding, there's basic offensive magic such as launching a fireball, etc. Generally speaking, most magic requires some sort of incantation, and can exhaust a user's energy if oversized and possibly kill them. As for the type of person that can learn magic, that's sort of a grey area in terms of Lore. Certain books state the person must have the mental capacity to grasp the concepts of magic, whilst others state it is simple as trying. If the person has been trying for weeks to learn something, and nothing has happened, it can be assumed they are either a slow learner in developing any sort of magical abilities, or they have no magical capabilities at all.

I see.

With future magic in mind...

How about a character that is basically a spoiled rich girl or noble that lives in the town? Standard rebelous noble girl that doesnt want to only be married and wife'ed off, but wants adventure and all that. She loves adventure stories; magic, knights, dragon, ect. She sees learning magic as a way of being able to live those adventures in her actual life.

That totally works! I love that idea! Good one! And then I’m assuming she learns magic and gets better with it throughout the roleplay?

I’ll have my character and character thread up in about 2 hours when I get home from work!

When she learns magic and what kind can be completely up to you. Whatever helps the story.

Feel free to send me any world elements you might have on nobles. Her character can be a way for developing the world building with the political situation if you wish.

Sounds good! I will send you a quick DM in a bit if you'd like about nobles in the city?

And the Character Thread is Up!
