The world of Wralandir is a perilous place, from the Almac Plateau to the Ashlands; danger lurks around every corner. Whether your enemy may be a thieving bandit, cannibal barbarian, or fearsome orc -- one must always be prepared. But, not even the mightiest warrior can survive a fray between a Colossus. Yes, the colossus: beings with extraordinary magic, powerful enough to lay waste to entire civilizations over night. They are the stuff of legends and myths, few have survived encounters and lived to tell the tale.

For centuries these monsters were allowed to do as they may. Unopposed, they were allowed to rule over entire kingdoms, worshiped as gods and just as feared. But like all things good or bad, they must come to an end. Warriors rose up, armies were formed, and battles were fought. In the end, the Colossi lost and a balance was restored...

The tables have turned and the hunters have become the hunted. Bands of warriors are trained in the arts of hunting and killing these titans. Armies vigilantly protect the newly risen kingdoms from harm. But, it will take more than that to wipe out the colossi. They will no simply be vanquished, many still hold seats of power and continue to worshiped and revered with entire armies at their disposal. It is now a matter of survival of the fittest.

ImageWelcome to Age of the Colossus, an adventure roleplay. This roleplay will be small scale, only containing a maximum of 5-6 roleplayers. I am keeping it small to minimize problems and maximize activity and creativity. The roleplay will be heavily character driven, but there is a over-all story and campaign set. So depending on what the group decide this can be made into a sand-box roleplay.

This roleplay was created for the purposes of having fun in throughly thought-out environment with talented and experienced roleplayers and writers. Character will grow and relationships will develop as the roleplay progresses. There will be a good mix of battle scenes to offer action in the form of combating monsters and there will also be scenes where diplomacy is called for. There will also be a great deal of choices, varying monsters, and changes in scenery to further keep things from getting too stagnate and boring.

As I said earlier, this will be a small and private roleplay. The roster is currently already filled as layers were personally invited to join. But, as things always come up in RL, we may be accepting characters at a later date of expand the character limit. So do not be discouraged and feel free to submit a character or PM me. Just be aware that acceptance may not be instant.

For the most part this roleplay is finished and we will begin posting in the IC within a few days, however there are still areas in the roleplay that need fleshing out.

Below are a list of classes you must choose from to base your character around, from there though, you are free to customize your character as you see fit. The classes are present to help our group become more diverse. This will make the outcomes of combat and other situations vary as we will all specialize in different areas and will cause us to combine our talents to overcome obstacles.

Classes

  • Warrior: Is a generic and broad class; individual warriors have diverse backgrounds and different styles. Bodyguards, adventurers, former soldiers, invading bandit kings, or master swordsmen are all warriors, yet they come from all walks of life and backgrounds and often find themselves on very different alignments, goals, and sides in a conflict. The Warrior is skilled in combat, and usually can make use of some of the most powerful heavy armor and weaponry. As such, the warrior is a well-rounded physical combatant. Some warriors may be able to learn basic magic, but its capabilities in this field are somewhat limited.

  • Monk: The monk is a master of martial arts. Specializing in unarmed combat, they use no armor and only use special weapons. They also utilizes a spiritual element, Ki, that augments their fighting through the use of special abilities gained with experience. These powers and abilities are not traditional magic spells. Attacks by an unarmed monk are like a strike from a weapon with magical enhancements.

  • Rogue: A rogue fights with precision. These deadly combatants focus on a single target and dismantle it with deadly efficiency. They are particularly adept at tearing down individual opponents. Armed with blades, a rogue focuses more on positioning, and teaming up with warriors and mages to deal out maximum damage while enemies are either distracted or disabled. Acrobatic strikes lacerate foes, often leaving them bleeding out and steadily weakening, while the rogue smoothly slips behind for a devastating backstab.

  • Mage: A mage is able to interact with the forces of magic. Mages deal in raw power, whether sapping, bestowing, or inflicting it. They have incredible tactical potential, a fact underscored by many. Versatile and devastating, a mage is a force to be reckoned with. Mages can all but destroy an enemy’s ability to fight. Slowing, weakening, disenchanting—once they know a weakness, they can turn the most dangerous opponent into a helpless target.

  • Druid: Druids are keepers of the world who walk the path of nature. Druids have a greater control of their body and can change appearance at will, become immune to natural poisons and even stop aging. They also have a unique ability that allows them to change into various animal forms, and various other qualities that assist them in natural settings. Druids work very well with animals, and can try to improve a wild creature's attitude the same way they would improve a humans with diplomacy.

  • Ranger: Rangers have an affinity for open country and wilderness, but as independent scouts and militia, they are opportunists, not stewards of nature. They exploit every advantage of their environment, and can lure wild beasts to attack their foes. Rangers have animal empathy, meaning they can understand them and communicate with them to a certain degree. This is why they can persuade a variety of beast to fight along aside them.

  • Cleric: Clerics focus on restoration, not destruction. They know that the best way to win a battle is to keep themselves and their allies in the fight as long as possible. Removing injuries, granting resilience to wounds, even rescuing comrades from the brink of death. Any fool can cause harm, but no amount of muscle can make a weapon heal.

  • Bard: Bards are often depicted as ne'er-do-wells and charlatans who prefer not to meet challenges head on. A character who fits that stereotype can be fun, but a bard also can function as a person of deep knowledge and wide experience, a folk hero, a slumming aristocrat, or much more. Bards use music to soothe hearts and cloud minds; in combat, their abilities to inspire allies and distract foes are legendary. Beyond their music, they are masters of dirty fighting, stealth and larceny.

ImageCharacter creation for this RP is a bit complex, or maybe the better word(s) is intricate and overly detailed. There are character classes, specializations, different races, moral alignments, and other choices. To help you, I have created multiple info pages which links can be found in the Links section above or in the OOC Tab.

I have substituted moral alignments form personality descriptions, since to me that describes the character even better than you might be able to. Though if you want, you can still add in a personality description. Also I do sometimes prefer pictures, but a written description is more than welcome as well. And though I have said this before, I will say it again: be creative. There are too many options available, so characters should only be similar in race.

Also let's discuss character balance for a second. Think of a character as a six sided die. If we use a typical human as the average norm, their stats would fall into line as 3’s across the board -- with a 1 & 2 = Below Average, 4’s = Above Average (but nothing spectacular), and 5 & 6 = Well Above Average & Really Good.

So where does exceptional or perfect fit in?

Well this takes us well past typical human greatness and the exponentially harder to achieve 7 & 8 = Exceptional; 9 = Near Perfect; 10 = Perfect.

How do you get there?

Racial Strengths, (i.e.) an elf mage is likely to be superior to humans because of their longevity and heritage. Or if you are studying in one area to become exceptional, though you will probably falter in another after devoting time and resources to one and not the other.

Unless you are auditioning for the role such as a God, one should consider a more mediocre approach to character creation. The upper levels are just that, the exception to the rule.

Just a note: though I have made a character application, you do not have to use it. Although I require the same information to be present somewhere within your sheet. So you might be better off using it anyway. Also please try to restrain from listing personality traits as weaknesses. If you really must make it so, then at least list a good one.

A5
  1. This roleplay is co-gmed and created by myself (Crooked Thoughts) and Lifecharacter, any problem or question can be addressed by either of us.

  2. This RP is about as Adult as it can get while staying within RPG rules, so just remember that.

  3. Quality over quantity.

  4. Be creative. Don't be afraid to let your imagination run away. We have a leash we can tug on if you go too far...

  5. We want only serious, dedicated, experienced RPers only. We feel we have those skills, so it is only right we ask for the people of this RP to have the same.

  6. Your character can and might die, so keep that in mind.

  7. Be familiar with text fighting. It isn't necessary for you know how to text fight, but it will be appreciated in fight scenes.

  8. Just because this is a fantasy RP, doesn't mean your character is a one man army.

  9. A tad bit of common sense is required here. Not to be a jerk, just saying...

  10. Once your character has died, they are forever gone from the RP. Unless, they are brought back to life; which the method will have to be discussed first.

  11. For now only one character is allowed per person. In order to do otherwise, permission must be gained from one of the GMs.

  12. Also please DO NOT POST anywhere EXCEPT the OOC, until we say otherwise.

  13. Acceptance is given on a first come-first serve basis, but we as GMs have the final say. We will make decisions that we think will benefit the rp the best and base this off of writing examples, the submitted character, and your history on the site.
