A Very Long Way From Home

A Very Long Way From Home

0 INK

Forced away from their home, the children of the Old Fae King are being made to spend their time in the safety of a foreign and decidedly strange land, where they must learn to blend into human society or risk exposing themselves.

1,657 readers have visited A Very Long Way From Home since Hangman created it.

Introduction

ImageImage
Image Image
ImageImage
(brief overview and foundation)

The Fae Kingdom is once again at war, with none other than the Tyrant ruler of the Demons. Being the cautious man that he is, the Old Fae King thought it best that his children not be in the realm during such a time, and so he has sent them away to a place where they would be safe and away from other supernatural races. The realm of mortals, otherwise known as humans. This land is foreign to them and there is little that goes on there that they actually understand, but nonetheless it is the safest place for them to be. And, for extra measure, they are being escorted by the Old King's most trusted personal guards, one for each of the children.

Image
The royal children are all Hamadryads, which is a species related to Dryads - nymphs which are known to inhabit trees. Hamadryads, on the other hand, are bound to their own individual tree. This tree has a direct affect on their health and wellbeing, in the sense that if the tree withers and dies, so do they. Myths of Hamadryads (including their strengths, abilities and weaknesses) can and most likely will vary, as with pretty much every other supernatural race. In this story, they're essentially immortal and their connection with nature means that they can influence and manipulate the elements to their will. They're deathly allergic to iron, they cannot tell a lie and they heal with incredible speed (aided by water). Dryads, by nature, are described as "young, beautiful, musical, amorous, and gentle youthful creatures."

Image
Being creatures that are essentially inhabiting trees, they do not resemble humans enough to blend into the human society, and so they require something called a glamour. It gives them the appearance of an everyday human and thereby restricts their abilities; it'll help them blend into their environment a little more. Because of this change in their appearance, the royal siblings to do not have to look exactly alike, though their overall features should be - at the very least - similar.
ImageImage
It should be noted that there isn't a pre-decided name for the royal children. Whoever submits/reserves the first royal character gets to decide. It's recommended that, when reserving one of the below roles, you state what you'd like the last name to be (if you have any idea at all, if not that's fine too).

Image
Tara Reiley | 21 | Female | Eldest Child | Kiko Mizuhara | Literally

Image
Blythe Reiley | 19 | Female | Middle Child | Ksenia Solo | TheGypsyQueen_13

Image
___ Reiley | 15-17 | Gender | Youngest Child | FC | Lorawr

Image
Each guard is assigned to watch over one of the royal children (note that this does not mean they're meant to be romantically connected) and the order of the roles below corresponds with which child they'll be guarding. So, the first guard will guard the first royal, and so on.

1. Socially inept as I am, I still find it possible to be civil and polite towards people. I only ask the same of you; nothing more, nothing less. Yeah?
2. You've probably heard it a hundred times already, but don't let you IC dramas affect your OOC behaviour towards people.
3. I expect correct grammar and punctuation. Correct spelling, while preferred, isn't something I'll warn you about. Some people struggle. I get it.
4. You can use the provided CS if you want but it's basic. I don't need your sheet to be the most amazing thing in the world. I care about character, not design.
5. If this was an "unlimited roles" roleplay I probably wouldn't care about activity but there are only a certain amount of roles so don't disappear.
6. I need one post a week, at least, with the exception of holidays and busy weeks (personal or whatever).

That's about it, really. Do with that what you will, 'kay?

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

Sorry about being so ridiculously absent :( one busy day turned in to a bunch of busy days, and I haven't been able to do so much as even log on to the site

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

Hey :D Sorry for the delay. You should now have one and a half CS's. I shall finish Daine tomorrow some time :)

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

Submitted my WIP!

*Waves to all the other players* Looking forward to RPing with you all.

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

Ah, I see.

Well, regardless, I still really appreciate that you were willing to create another character.

I might have to take you up on the offer some time in the future if any roles ever open up again, so be prepared.

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

I was actually about to say to disregard that last comment from meXD

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

I appreciate your offer, I really do. However, I received a message earlier today about the last available guard position and it has since been reserved for that person.

Hopefully, with all the roles taken, the only thing to worry about now is how quickly people will be able to finish their sheets, or to submit them if they haven't already.

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

If you would like me to I will take the last gaurd?

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

Aye, welcome back. Looking forward to seeing her completed.


I've got work and all sorts of crap to get sorted before I can even think about getting Karma finished. I'll be absent for most of today (Sunday, 27th) and tomorrow (Monday, 28th) but then I've got a few days to myself.

If everyone who hasn't at least submitted a WIP can get theirs in soon, that'd be beyond awesome. Also, if possible, I want to start the roleplay some time on Thursday or Friday. Whoever doesn't have a WIP in will lose their place; everyone who does have a WIP submitted will just have to get theirs finished alongside posting (and believe me, I will be pestering you about it).

Thanks a bunch.

*Rolls away*

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

Alright, I'm back, I'll be finishing Nicola soon xD

Happy Holidays folks xD

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

Hey, guys.

Just wanted to say to you all that you really don't have to work on your characters over Christmas. Share time with your family and friends, don't spend your day staring at a computer screen.

I'm not going to be on much today, tomorrow or even the day after. I don't expect anything more from you than you're willing to give, y'know.

Merry Christmas everyone. Enjoy it.

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

I've been too busy with the holidays and visiting family to work on my character very much, but I'll have a WIP of her submitted sometime tonight! I'll try to get her finished by tomorrow.

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

Alright Blythe is all done!:)

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

TheCrimsonLady - Aye, I look forward to seein' her.

TheGypsyQueen_13 - Got it noted down, tah.

LaPatataPequeña - You most certainly can.

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

This looks really interesting! I'm a sucker for supernatural roleplays, ahaha

If it's alright, could I reserve a human girl? I'm thinking the FC will be Lydia Graham, but I'm not entirely sure yet.

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

My FC is gonna be Ksenia Solo.
Image

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

WEEEE! I'll get started on my CS soon.

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

TheCrimsonLady - Yeah, absolutely, you can take that role if you want. And yes, she can most definitely be sighted. That'll make things interesting, I'm sure.

Edit
The guards are still Dryads, y'know. Just pointing it out.

Re: A Very Long Way From Home

OMG! Okay, so Resident Faery selfproclaimed expert Obsessed here,

Damn all the Dryad spots are taken

Can I reserved a human girl?

FC: Candice Patton

Image

and can she be Sighted?

meaning she can see Faeries beyond their glamour, but she doesn't know what they are, and is terrible afraid of them
