Interest check for Fantasy RP

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby PaperCoversRockB*tch on Fri Nov 01, 2013 8:24 pm

I made this roleplay a while ago but it was one of those that got lost in the shuffle and didn't get many views before being lost in the sea of dead rp's (Btw, I think "Sea of Dead RP's" would be a good way to describe the ratio. That or "Tomb of the Failed". Both are working titles.) Just checking to see if anyone would be interested in trying it.

Across the world, there are many lands with many legends, all focusing on the trials and victories of long dead heroes who rose up it defeat the villain and save the people. In the northern oceans, the continent of Arathorne sits isolated from the rest of the world. The most popular legend within Arathornian folklore is that of The Judgement God. Four thousand years ago, in a time when Old Magic ruled the land, Arathorne was plagued by greed and avarice, earning the ire of the Gods. Kalandril, the God of Chaos, saw it a different way from his fellow deities. While the Gods did not interact with the mortals, Kalandril saw it as a necessity to bring order to the land. Forsaking his place in Verlathan, Kalandril invaded the land of Arathorne, seeking to bring order to the troubled land. Leading his Valkyrie Knights, Kalandril quickly brought Arathorne under his Judgement. And thus, an age of obedience under a Fallen God began.

For two hundred years, Kalandril ruled over the lands of Arathorne, acting as more of a tyrannical ruler than the savior he claimed himself to be. His Valkyrie Knights, once draped in pure white armor and almost angelic in appearance, had now morphed into something far more more twisted, barely resembling what they once were. However, all hope was not lost. A warrior, clad in golden armor revealing not age, race, nor gender, rose up to challenge the Fallen God. It is said their sword fell countless Valkyrie with each swing, and their spells brought down the skies to crush their enemy. The lone warrior approached Kalandril as he sat on his thrown. Believing the new enemy not worth his time, Kalandril stated he would defeat the hero without standing up. The Judgement God had long forgotten his purpose, his righteous will replaced with arrogance and pride. Within a few minutes, Kalandril was standing, having to fight with all his might to ensure this lone warrior did not best him. For days they battled back and forth, exchanging blows. When it was all said and done, it appeared as if Kalandril had defeated his opponent, who laid on the ground unable to move. Kalandril began to laugh maniacally, believing his power absolute. At that moment, h felt the tip of a sword piercing his chest. In his boosting, he failed to notice his opponents last stand, as the warrior plunged the sword deeper into the chest of the tainted god. Kalandril fell back onto his throne, gripping the hilt of the sword but finding himself unable to remove it. As he died cursing the warrior and the other Gods, Kalandril's body disappeared, taking the sword with him as he did so. The ceiling above Kalandril's throne broke apart, revealing a shining light into its dark halls. the warrior, who had fallen to the ground once again, was lifted up through the ceiling and into the sky above. Their form appeared in the stars above, and the tale of them defeating Kalandril was etched into the Direth Mountains, as only a few before them had earned. The warrior was now a God, the new God of Judgement. And so ends the tale of The Judgement God, both of them. though no one knew their name as a mortal, the warrior's deification earned them the new name of Arelia.

It is the the 62nd year of the Sixth Reign. The land is currently under the control of the Malim, an ancient race who has been the most populated on the continent. Establishing a Monarchy hundreds of years ago, the Malim removed the Republic that once decided the direction of Arathorne. Though the other races are allowed to have high ranking positions in both the military and government, the word of the Malim King is law, and any who oppose it will face his judgment, and maybe even his Dragon Guard. However, unlike the previous King, the current King, Arallax Mundis, appears to be a fair and just ruler, preferring to settle things through negotiations and treaties, whether it be other nations or even a pack of roaming marauders. Some don't agree with this policy, but the King's word is absolute, just like that of all who came before him. However, the peace will not last it seems...

The Seryan as they have come to be called by the common folk have invaded the southern most city of Sturike and razed the town of Enri that sits just a few miles east. After several scout reports, King Mundis reached out to surrounding nations, but none seem to no who the Seryan are or were they come from. Whether this is true, or a ruse to plan a full invasion, the King has only one true option; Save what's left of Sturike and squash the Seryan before they start heading further north. Sending his best, General Eryk Grehain, and his Mage Advisor, Jasper Lawrence, the King hopes to either negotiate a peace or end this invasion before it truly begins.

With a contingent of 2,000 troops, General Grehain marched south, arriving just north of the Petrified Forest. Even this far from the city, the fires from Sturike are visible, causing unrest amongst the men. Setting up camp outside the forest, scout reports say the Seryan are preparing within the cities walls, but have started marching toward the forest. It seems this battle for the south will take place within the stone trees between them. Dawn has broke on the horizon and the Arathorne army has begun to prepare for the battle that is only hours away.

While the sounds like an interesting synopsis to a story, it leaves an important question unanswered: what would the RP actually be about?
Irony is lost on those whose behavior is ironic. Isn't that... ironic?

@Sench

The story will heavily focus on the war against the Seryan and the political turmoil that will ensue within the Malim controlled government. Its not a sand-box roleplay (as I tend to feel those lack direction), but more of a High Fantasy story with numerous subplots that will occur within the timeline of the main story. Sorry, I'm someone who struggles with revealing the whole plot to roleplayers before hand (Which is probably why I'm finding it difficult to get active roleplayers to stick around on this site).

Well you don't have to give away important plot twists or explain things you'd like to keep to yourself until later, but you should probably tell prospective roleplayers what they'll actually be roleplaying, like what characters we'll be making, and what they'll be doing, and so on like that.

to be honest after reading that whole tail, It's disappointing to discoverer the rp is about a war and political battles. Even with sub plots and what not.
