Hello luvlies! Thank you for viewing this interest check. CC can be summed up like this:
You're in an eight person friend group going on a road trip to a famous theme park. You decide to stop at a cliffside to take pictures, and one of your friends picks up a mysterious rock. It glowed, showing a purple light. After that, you feel yourself getting transported to a rocky ground, along with your friends, feeling fatigued. People start crowding around you, with surprised looks on their faces. "What's the commotion there?" a high-pitched voice asks. The voice emerges as.. a pixie?! "OH MY! The Heroes 8! You've finally returned! I've been preparing for this day.. Uh, firstly, let's help you to the infirmary." she flies away, rounding up some soldiers. You feel yourself to have no strength to get up, and you look around to see your friends the same. Your clothes also have changed with additional weaponry. They're with robes, armor, staffs, and shields.
The pixie comes back with soldiers holding stretchers for each one of you. "Move over you savages!" the floating creature addresses the folks surrounding you. "I'm Erina, loyal pixie to the kingdom! Thus, making me devoted to you Heroes too. I-i'll let the queen talk to you, I don't wanna chew your ears off with my rambling, n-not actual chewing! I mean the common phrase.. if I talk too much your ears.. and er.. I'll just leave you to the infirmary."
…Ok, less of a summary, more of the actual premise. There's more lore in the second tab, and I might put up a thread with even more lore. But for now, the characters can learn more about the world in the roleplay itself.
"Welcome back to the kingdom of Arenorth! We're absolutely ecstatic! The Heroes 8 have come back to show their everlasting wisdom upon our land. Perfect timing too, our annual Heroes 8 celebration day is tomorrow! And after that, you can rule over Arenorth and solve our little quarrel with Rosefront, neighboring kingdom.
W-well they want to wage war on us, so it isn't a 'little quarrel' but it should be for you eight. You've destroyed the Konterror, for Iona's sake! Oh, uh, a-am I allowed to swear in front of the Heroes..?"
Erina's rambling aside, let me fill you in on the kingdom. The Konterrons were evil beings who terrorized the world's magic, ridding Arenorth's every magical aspect. Mages and the like were killed. Every magical critter abolished. Only Erina was left of the magical life forms. Erina.. and the Heroes 8! Eight heroes stepped up to the Konterrons, eliminating them and making them back away into their own planet. You might ask what the point was if the magics were already extinguished? The eight knew about the 'terrons the same time their kingdom did. They could only hatch the plan after half the magics had been slaughtered, and could only act after the other half have also been. So they set out to save other lands, and have succeeded in the endeavor!
Arenorthians don't seem to resent them for not saving the magics in their own kingdom. They once did, when their relations to the magics were closer, but as the years went by, Arenorthians don't know much of the magics anymore, not knowing what they were like, thus having no connection to them, and thus not feeling any hatred to the 8. They have a lot of pride because the 8 that saved the lands came from theirs.
(and if it wasn't clear this is medieval fantasy-)
So, the original Heroes 8 consisted of these roles. And somehow, your characters have been put into their attire, convincing the people around you that you're their heroes. Roles will be taken when you have a general idea about what your character will be, e.g when you discuss your upcoming character in the discord.
The swordsman was the leader of the Heroes, because, well, of his great leadership. The sorcerer might have been the most powerful, but the swordsman brought the team together with their sense of camaraderie. Wielding a sword with a shield, and moderate armor.
This character's going to be equipped with seemingly unlimited arrows on their pack and and no armor, clothes are a robin hood style thing. Wielding a very intricately adorned bow. Taken by yours truly, Scythex
The barbarian here wields no weapon, but makes up for it in their strength. They're greatly protected, and seen as primitive and savages, it's quite the opposite. They have a great sense of strategy and skill, which your character will acquire. What they won't acquire is the barbarian's strength.
There's four types of magic users, sorcerers, mages, clerics, and the dark users. Dark users comprise of dark mages and dark sorcerers. Clerics are basically a sub-class of mages, sorcerers are the most powerful type magic user. Mages are sorcerers but well, less powerful. There are a list of spells they can do that I will share in OOC.
Sorcerers wear cloaks and wield a staff of dark oak and a crystal that can be blue, red, or green.
Clerics are the healers in the battle. They also go on the defensive side, sending out magic light shields. They will wear a long robe of gold and white. Wielding a staff like the sorcerer's with a crystal of light on top.
The Axe-Wielding Dwarves
This is two roles, and no, your characters won't have to be or turned into a dwarf. You're going to be equipped with an axe, and.. dwarf sized armor. Your characters are going to be given regular armor later on.
Bards are story-tellers, verse-makers, and artistic, creative people. They wield a mandolin(?) and bardish clothing. (elaboration on OOC)
They're agile and swift. Mostly on the sidelines in the middle of the battle, but will be used to distract the enemy and produce tunes for the team. They're also known to be charismatic and charming. Your character will likely acquire some agility but their personality traits will stay the same.
All OOC talk is going to be in the discord, thus it's one of the requirements. Please do not cause any sort of drama there, discrmination will not be tolerated and you will be kicked from the roleplay.
The age range for characters is 19-28. No Mary and Gary Sues, and posts will have to be at least a paragraph long.
Make sure you read every piece of lore provided (unless stated it is optional). The setting lore won't really impact your character sheet as much, the relationships of the other characters on your own will.
oh what? no, i totally didn't give up on changing the colors-
and if anything was confusing you can go ahead and join the discord for questions.
