You gave them everything.

Peace, guidance, expansion, a city, but it was never enough. However, you would endure as long as you had your family, Always and Forever. Until that wasn't enough and the gravest sin against the Cromwell's was committed, the harm and destruction of the Family. They all rose up, empowered by determined fervor to destroy their vampire lords who had given them everything since the city's founding, to destroy and erase the Cromwells from the facet of history.

Premise: Cromwell is a game about a cluster of vampires who frantically believe they are family (whether that is true or not, is not important and lost to history, all that matters is that you are now) and who were the founders of the city-state of Amaris, a city that takes place in the homebrew gothic fantasy setting of my creation. The Cromwells were permanently destroyed unable to return through their unholy and vampiric gifts and yet after some unknown time to them, each one of you began to wake up again to a city that has long since forgotten you, it's founders in a weakened state. The game will have elements of city building, politics, adventure and action amongst others.

Please start thinking about how your character was "killed" in the past. We can use this thread to discuss.

I could see myself taking one more person who shows interest. The character sheet will come soon for powers and such, but not required to talk about deaths and relationships to other family members.

Obviously interested as I'm mentioned. lol

My character is Julian Cromwell, very much a poltical schemer and planner with some martial prowess to defend what he gains.

I've never done a vampire rp before, but I'm sure if I make my end Lovecraftian enough, I'll find myself comfy

Nathaniel Cromwell; A man needs not sight when hunting criminals who hide in the dark, but taps into other measures of locating. A man who devotes himself to protecting his home and people.

yea sorry if I was being convoluted

No problem, I haven't out the character sheet yet, but that would be all five. Essentially short summary is that you guys were all really powerful vampires that called themselves a family, the Cromwells and you founded the city of Amaris together. Eventually, you all got destroyed and after X amount of time, you are now somehow returned in the ruins of your home, to a city that has long forgotten you. Much weaker than you previously were.

Never done Vampire Rp either but should be fun. Definitely gonna enjoy this though

Welcome aboard, some good vampire games are V:tM but I got tired of running that dice system and am a huge freeform fan and roleplayer, so I figured I'd try my hand at my own.

Okay, that's all five of you. I will post up and release the actual RP in a few days.

I'm just finalizing the character sheet. Vampires will have a common set of abilities, just deciding what they should be, before your blood branches off and specializes in different things. There are no real set rules to the magic or system, which is how I ran Amaris, so if any of you have any concepts of some sort of ability you want, let me know and we can talk about it. The roleplay will be heavily story-based and freeform, so for example if you want to do X, I will tell you the consequences, whether it's politics, working on a project, etc. The focus will be on Amaris' foundations and systems (like the noble houses that rule, companies that exist there, etc and social systems).

Where needed, based on how good your character is at something because it's their specialization or something, I'll have you roll a d100 die (for 100 percent). For example, if you are trying to strike at someone and I tell you that you have a 60 percent to hit them, you'll hit them on a 1-60.

It is possible for people to split up and do their own thing, so occasionally we will do a time skip of say a few days or a week, so that story results from character projects all happen at the same time.

While I work on the sheet, one definite question that will show up on it is, How did you die?

You are welcomed to create any hero, location, or scenario for the most part. Your death will be a sore subject for a bit in the RP, considering that it wasn't supposed to be easy or in some of your mind's possible. The primary Cromwell Estate is a few miles outside of the city walls in the distance overlooking the city ala emperors of old who had a secluded residence. When you had to stay in the city you had less spacious abodes but they were nice (kinda hard to stick a mega-mansion in the city proper). If you want to have died in the estate, feel free to come up with any room or part of the estate outside or otherwise.

In the future when you wake up, it's going to all be run down and practically in ruins.

Julian Cromwell, voice of the Cromwells and blood sorcerer died in the Audience Chamber of the Tower of Rule in Amaris. A party of adventurer's linked to the conspiracy against the family attacked the Tower, killing their way to the top where Julian was waiting for them in his full combat regalia. Julian battled the party, killing several with blade and blood magic even as he felt the deaths of his other family members. Dragged down by a heavy heart, the surviving attackers had a priest among them that summoned as powerful angelic force that reduced the weakened and heart-broken vampire lord to ash, leaving his armor to clatter to the floor empty. The last thing they told him before he vanished into ash was the fate of all his family if only to further confirm what he'd known was true.

Julian's ashes were scattered out onto the sea winds, his armor sealed into a vault that was then hidden to prevent loyalist from ever finding it.

Konstantin, the Cromwells’ twisted and ugly spymaster general and patron of the arts, was caught utterly flat-footed in an ambush while returning to Amaris. His broken body was buried at the roadside. Over time, an orchard of twisted and sickly-looking apple trees grew at his gravesite, producing small, shrivelled, bitter-tasting apples.

My character will be Vale Cromwell - A shapeshifting spy and assassin. Vale does much of the dirty work for the family, infiltrating social circles, gathering secrets, and killing priority targets as needed.

The Cromwell's infiltrator was killed in a mansion fire. To the outside eye, the fire looked like an unfortunate accident that consumed several buildings. However, it was actually a trap set to kill Vale, the Black Hand of the Cromwell's. Under the form of one of the manor's house-servants, Vale entered the mansion basement to poison the supply of wine. Upon entering the basement, every exit was sealed behind her, and the mansion was lit ablaze. It's not known if it was the flames that ultimetly led to her demise, or the mansion collapsing in on itself.

Nathaniel Cromwell - Counter espionage, criminal hunter. Nathaniel deals with the most dangerous and filthy of criminals. Using echolocation and enhanced night vision makes finding those who hide in the dark and around corner much easier.

As assassination attempts against the Cromwells rose, Nathaniel found himself becoming less confident in his ability to deal with the exponentially more capable killers. One night, Nathaniel caught onto a conspiracy to capture one of the Cromwells. As he confronted the assassin on their way through the sewers, Nathaniel slipped up. The assassin got the best of him when they called upon the entity they worshipped. A barbed tentacle reached out from the inch-deep water, grabbing Nathaniel by the leg and seemingly pulling him into the water.

Somewhere unknown, sinking, Nathaniel was face to face with the unholy cosmic being.

Laurent Cromwell was a master of trade and negotiation, who's responsibility's was to make deals with interested party's to spread the family's influence within and outside of the city walls and keeping the family's dark dealings under wraps.
His life ended in a shocking betrayal, before he could transform his bride to be Valérie Fontaine into a creature of the night, she pierced his heart with an angelic blade and disappeared into the night.
