The Transall Saga

The Transall Saga
Gary Paulsen
------------------------------------------------

The story will be based on the Transall Saga by Gary Paulsen. You don't have to have read the book, its a really basic concept and I'm going to try and keep this short as possible.

In this roleplay I'm looking for 4 active roleplayers who can post AT LEAST once a day. It is a progressive roleplay meaning that the character sheets we start out with will look entirely different at the end of this roleplay. We'll begin in the modern time period and by some freakish means will be transported into the future, though our characters are not really aware this is the future. In reality it is the future of Earth after nuclear fallout has destroyed the world but its been several thousands of years and life is finally beginning to fluctuate once more, though everything is genetically mutated. Leaves, foliage, etc. are RED and not green. There are mutated beasts that are very similar to modern livestock but also very different. Humans exist though they appear slightly different, there are odd colorings of eyes and hands and feet are slightly webbed (Not enough to prohibit any dexterity). Often times a human may have an extra toe or finger and their eyes are oddly shaped as are their elven shaped ears.

There are several groups of humans, societies, or kingdoms. Technology is not balanced an there are a few different types:

Tribal -- think early native Americans
Groups: Nazacheck, the Grimbolize, or the Kannawae all a part of the "Timberling Nation" who meet often throughout the year.

Colonial -- think native Americans with a slight group on metal working and no longer nomadic with wooden towns
Groups: Kingdlons, Decefaits, and the Moroners constantly at war with each other.

Medieval -- medieval time period, blacksmithing and small siege equipment, and nice slick metal weapons.
Groups: The Daschon, and the Karakanas who are peaceful nations.

Then there is the Wayward Gods Empire with the emperor: Daramalla. Unknown to our characters Darmalla is also an individual from the past who was once a successful Civil Engineer who turned into a psychotic serial rapist. He was finally found, tried, and condemned to the death penalty. He organized an escape and in his escape was transported to the future. He now lives out his deepest fantasy -- through his skill he's introduced great technology to the Wayward Gods in the way of massive stone fortresses and advanced siege equipment. He's come to this continent from the West and established a massive fortress on the Western cost. He now moves with his armies, destroying every village and town -- raping and pillaging the countryside. It is our job to eventually stop him.

----

Here's how it will work: we'll make character sheets of our characters in the modern day period. Choose your profession, education, and hobbies wisely so that they'll help you in the future. Our characters will roam the wilderness for a while before being captured by one of the tribal groups and enslaved. We'll learn the language and soon we'll all meet up during one of their yearly meetings.

It will be progressive -- so we'll make use of the "10 years later..." tool throughout the roleplay. Our characters will have to learn combat, at present we're just soft little modern men and women. We'll take part in the politics of the world for a while and eventually find ourselves enlisted with one of the Medieval groups, form a rebellion -- fight a civil war, and come out on top with our little nation and then be faced with the Wayward Gods.

Its a small group RP, so write your character sheets well. I'll be posting my character sheet shortly for an example, let me know if you're interested now.

Name: Blane P. Hanson IV
Age: 26
Occupation: CEO of a Metals Production Company
Education: PhD in Geology and minor in History, and Business
Hobbies: Amateur MMA fighter
Appearance: Blane is tall, well muscular and in the prime of his life. He trains three hours a day six days a week for his hobby as an MMA fighter, thus he is in the best shape of his life. Green eyes, shortly cut black hair, and slightly tanned.
Enslavement: The Nazacheck
Biography:

In high school Blane was the typical nerd. His father was the successful founder of Metallica Co. which mined and refined various metals as well as sold the products around the world. Thus, Blane lived the life of luxury though it didn't always seem to be so for Blane. His mother had died during child birth and so he was taken care of by hired nannies and rarely seen his father. His father did make a point to see him every month, check up on his studies, and constantly beat it into his head that he needed a good education. His father paid the best tutors he could find and so Blane was always ahead of his class in his studies and never made below a 4.0. His entire life was centered around academics, and his tutors instructed in him business and geology in addition to his standard High School classes. His father was intent on making him a genius in the field of metal working and wanted very much for him to become CEO of the company one day.

High School was miserable for Blane. A tall skinny pale nerd never had it very easy in any High School and so he was constantly picked on throughout his High School years, up until his Junior year. He began feeling quite rebellious toward his father and often times refused to attend to his tutors. He really felt that he no longer needed them -- he was years beyond his peers and already studying material that was usually reserved for upper level Geology majors. His father became quite furious with him but there was little he could do as he found himself half way across the world in the middle of opening up a new plant and subsequent mining operation. Blane hired a personal trainer and began working out several times a week and consuming more protein than he'd ever imagined that he would. Inside of several months Blane began bulking up and his classmates began taking notice. Although they weren't as forward with their jibes and insults as before, they still did so with caution.

The bullying came to a climax one day in school and Blane ended up in a fight with the star quarter back, which he lost miserably despite his considerable size. Blane then decided it was time for martial arts training, and so he through himself into it and by his sophomore year in college he was competing successfully in local amateur MMA fights.

He graduated top in his class in college and pursued a PhD in geology. His father was never more proud of him, and he continued with his studies fervently because he found the closer he got to his Dad's dreams for him -- the more time he had with him. He graduated with his PhD and his father stepped aside as CEO -- assuming the position of Chairmen of the Board and Blane became CEO. Under Blane's direction the company began to flourish even more so than when his father was CEO. Blane was showered with praise constantly and spend a lot of time with his father. He finally felt that he was be rewarding for all of his hard work in life, and then it happened.

While training in his private gym, he grew very dizzy. His mind began to whirl and he thought perhaps serious fatigue was setting in -- he sat back, but a whirlwind of colors assailed his mind as if he had just dropped acid. Atomic magnitude explosions burst through his senses, and a cyclone of color and extravagance swooped him up.

He awake later lying on blood red grass with a serious headache.
