This looks like a big bite of interesting! Mind if I join, or am I too late?

I also have a few questions for clarity sake:
  • Is this based on any established franchise/lore/etc.? If not, that's just as well! I do like improv!
  • As I understand it, I can choose a rank and two affinities at the start but can I have a guild specific role (Like the scribe that is listed in the Character List), or would I need to work up to that?
  • Can our characters be born/originate from any part of the world, or is Lantana the main part?
  • Lastly, I noticed people were combining affinities to achieve unique powers for their characters. So, if I were to claim Dark (i'm guessing its similar to actual darkness and places of darkness) and Lightning as my affinities, could I reasonably say I have the ability to wield a powerful shadow lightning?

I'm very interested as well, and I also have some questions:

-Can a character use their standard affinity in a specialized or unique way if they have two standard affinities (Like propelling fire magic similar to how rockets or jets in real life work)?
-Can there only be so many characters to a certain affinity for the time being, or are there no restrictions so long as each character has interesting distinctions from the others of the same affinity type?
-Does a single affinity limit you to one or two powers, or would any given affinity only broadly define what they can do
(Like for Fire affinity, would one be able to transfer heat from one source to another at will: Inadvertently making the source robbed of heat cold like an Ice affinity would)?
-What's the general amount of points earned from jobs needed to progress through the ranks?
-Can characters grant themselves titles fitting of their powersets and lifestyles as to stand out from the others, or are they just called adventurers as to avoid favoritism to the more well-known members of the Guild?

Still open for anyone who might be interested. Pace has settled down after the initial madness, and I'm happy to answer any questions on what's been happening in the story.

Link to the character thread for anyone who wants to throw up a sheet. (I will post approval in the OOC chat).

It seems I also missed the later parts of this thread (my bad). Though they were made a while ago, I'd like to answer some of the questions.

FellowKnight FellowKnight (sorry for the late tag)
- Is this based on any established franchise/lore/etc.? If not, that's just as well! I do like improv!
It is not! The world is totally open to imagination, the only exception being the areas other players have created themselves.

- As I understand it, I can choose a rank and two affinities at the start but can I have a guild specific role (Like the scribe that is listed in the Character List), or would I need to work up to that?
There would need to be in-game progression to a guild role. For now I will hold most of the positions, but Pri (the guildmaster)'s character sheet does mention she is only a stand until the next one guildmaster chosen. Of course such positions would only go to people who are active on the thread, and seem to have a good grasp on the mechanics of the guild.

- Can our characters be born/originate from any part of the world, or is Lantana the main part?
They can come from anywhere. Lantana is only a small part of a very big world. There have been some awesome places people have come up with.

- Lastly, I noticed people were combining affinities to achieve unique powers for their characters. So, if I were to claim Dark (i'm guessing its similar to actual darkness and places of darkness) and Lightning as my affinities, could I reasonably say I have the ability to wield a powerful shadow lightning?
Absolutely! As a general rule affinities will manifest as a personalised form of magic which tends to be stronger than single elements, but they don't have to.

- Can a character use their standard affinity in a specialized or unique way if they have two standard affinities (Like propelling fire magic similar to how rockets or jets in real life work)?
The applications are largely unrestricted. Standard doesn't mean 'by-the-book' when it comes to affinities.

- Can there only be so many characters to a certain affinity for the time being, or are there no restrictions so long as each character has interesting distinctions from the others of the same affinity type?
There are no limitations on number of characters per affinity.

- Does a single affinity limit you to one or two powers, or would any given affinity only broadly define what they can do (Like for Fire affinity, would one be able to transfer heat from one source to another at will: Inadvertently making the source robbed of heat cold like an Ice affinity would)?
There are no hard rules on how the affinities can be used. Finding different ways to use a character's powers is allowed, but it needs to be done within reason. In the example given, I'd say you'd need a specialised affinity, or a standard one that complements the way it's going to be used.

- What's the general amount of points earned from jobs needed to progress through the ranks?
I have a point metric I use for the ranking that I will not be disclosing. However, I will say that upper ranks require more points to progress, and starting at a higher rank changes the scale for the amount of points earned in missions. It is also at my own judgement. If a good amount of effort goes into a quest I will likely add extra points.

- Can characters grant themselves titles fitting of their powersets and lifestyles as to stand out from the others, or are they just called adventurers as to avoid favoritism to the more well-known members of the Guild?
Your character can have titles and positions outside of the guild, but it is up to other players to react to it. Even if they are renowned in another land, it is no guarantee other characters would know what their position is, or care about it if they did. The guild itself doesn't have special titles for its members.

My apologies for not responding before. If any of you are still interested you're welcome to put up a character sheet.

I’ve been meaning to apologize myself. I have a sheet (of sorts) already prepped for this, but I wasn’t satisfied with it, specifically the background and affinities. I eventually lost steam and set it on a shelf, moving on to other RPs; I should’ve given you a heads up.

However, I’m a junkie and I need my fix for disgustingly good stories. I do like the concept of this thread, and I’m liking the activity I’m seeing, so I’ll go ahead and tweak it. It’ll be posted soon, if that’s ok 💛

All good, and still my bad for not seeing your posts earlier--things got pretty chaotic once the main thread went up. Let me know if you want someone to bounce ideas off, otherwise I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Yup! There should be a link to the character sheet further up. Let me know if you have any questions.

Just wanted to hop in and say I'm very interested in this RP. I like the level of thought and detail gone into this, it's not too simple nor too complex—just right. While I'd love to join, I'm currently in a different RP and I don't usually partake in more than one, rarely two, at a time (so that I can stay committed). Unfortunately at this moment in time my plate is full with the aforementioned RP and writing this year's dissertation. That being said, I'll definitely be tracking this since I'd love to join when things ease up.

In the meantime, I have a couple of questions:
  1. How frequently are you expecting players to post?
  2. I noticed you won't allow races from religious texts. My original ideas in regard to what race I'd like to play were between a Kitsune or a Yaksha, would these be allowed or not?

Thanks for the interest! The posting frequency can vary, but if a character hasn't replied in two days since the last interaction with them, and they're in a pretty central part of the thread with others waiting on the reply, I'll generally make/allow a post to move things along. It's a bit different on separate missions, where it's up to the party to decide what pace they prefer.

The religious text rule applies more to named beings like Beelzebub, Zeus, Amaterasu, Thor, etc--though it can apply to other aspects as well--since in my experience such characters tend to be extremely overpowered. A kitsune or yaksha would be fine.

Hope that answers things for you. Good luck with your dissertation, and thank you again for the kind words. I hope we'll see you around the thread in future!
