Introduction

Chronicles of Cre' Est


Image



Welcome to Chronicles of Cre' Est!

My story, Assassin's Pledge, has grown a lot in the last couple years. And for the purpose of enjoying "what came before" the story, I figured it'd be fun to create a role-play on it covering a series of historical events and important historical figures.

Examples of who we'll see in this RP include (but are not limited to):

1) The original founding of the continent of Cre' Est by the Mar' Valoan settlers
2) The various splits between Cre' Itians and those who would later found the other four nations
3) The monks who would later evolve into the Assassin organization known as Te'i Sai
4) The origin of the various cults and how they found ways of getting glimpses into the Nether Realm to summon malevolent spirits to this world
5) The first Industrial Revolution, courtesy of Cre' Est
6) The second Industrial Revolution, courtesy of Veilbrand
7) The cultural development of Shaharan

This RP idea was largely inspired by recent real-world events which have sparked a demand for major social and political change the world over. However, that's about as far as we'll get with real-world politics here.

This RP is going to be all about the social and political history of Assassin's Pledge. Each section of this RP will feature a different central historical figure which will be portrayed by yours truly. Everyone around these figures who help shape their life experiences, their social and political views and the inner workings of their hearts will be played by YOU!

So while my characters are the central pivot point, you are the ones driving the direction and intensity of said pivot. Make sense?

Hopefully that made sense. I'm not exactly known for my awesome communication skills.

Anyway! If this idea appeals to you, please feel free to drop me a message in the threads or a private message! I'll be happy to discuss the RP, the history of Assassin's Pledge (which will also be laid out in the threads once I get around to writing them), and how you can expect to create a character based around the figures I provide for each section of the RP.

Also, if you would like to negotiate portraying a central historical figure rather than a different and more custom character, I am open to such negotiations. Please wait to talk to me about this until I have created the threads which detail who these central figures are. It may help you to determine if you really want to take that role.

Thank you so much for visiting! And I hope to see you inside!

Toggle Rules

1) Please introduce yourself before throwing a character at this RP. A little courtesy goes a long way with me. And if you just throw a character at me without at least saying "Hi" in the General Discussion thread or in a PM about the RP, I won't accept the character. I consider silent character drop-ins to be very rude and disrespectful. So please don't give me that impression of you. Thanks!

2) No God-Modding, Meta Gaming, or Power Playing.

God-Modding - Cheating your character into an un-killable, or even un-damageable position where nothing can hurt them and they seem to preternaturally ignore and/or avoid any danger without ever being caught in a vulnerable position. A single violation will get you a one-way ticket out of the RP.

Meta Gaming - Using your real-world knowledge about what's going to happen in the RP to determine how your character reacts instead of letting them react dynamically. This will be a 1 warning infraction. Twice gets you ejected from the RP.

Power Playing - Writing actions or words for player-controlled characters that don't belong to you and without the permission of the character's owner. This is another single violation and you're out of the RP.

3) Disrespectful behavior will not be tolerated. If you engage in any kind of toxic arguments or verbal assaults on another player, you'll find yourself out of the RP and reported to the Moderators/Admins of this website before you even realize I was watching the event unfold. I take the comfort and emotional safety and health of all those who join my RP's very seriously.

Do not cross me on this.

Ros kept her eyes glued on the child that stood before her, giving her full attention to the small child as she explained that she helped keep her mother focused on her job at hand. Giving a small chuckle as the child continued to explain more and more of what her important job was. Resting her chin on her hand that was resting on her right knee, as the left was keeping her propped up as she was crouched down, listening to the children explain things was always interesting and entertaining. That much Ros had to admit. Children had their charm about them.

Tilting her head to the side as Lemnia continued to explain that she had to make sure she kept her mother pretty with her flower crowns. A genuine chuckle escaped her lips, "Oh I bet you do. She looks very pretty with them." she chuckled once more, watching as the child carried far too much energy for her little body. What she hadn't expected, was for what happened next was when Lemnia turned and went to walk, but not even after a single step did the child trip and fall flat on her face.

Reacting quickly, Ros lurched forwards, grabbing Lemnia gently in her arms and held her up by gently placing both of her hands on either side of the young girl. Gently dusting Lemnia off with her hands, before examing the small scratch on her face from the fall, "Are you okay, Lemnia? You took quite a fall." Ros finally questioned as she finished examining the child for any more minor injuries.

Korrin got overwhelmed by Cretas' ramblings and almost couldn't figure out whether or not if she was answering his question or not. It was very confusing to listen to. To make it more complicated Lemnia left to bother the tall tough lady! Leaving him all alone with her mom! What can he do!?

"Ms. Cretas? Does that mean yes or no to what i asked? I asked if it was alright to join you in your expedition?" He said hesitatingly. He could not tell if she was actually listening to him as he tried to soak in her ramblings and the tall woman, Now introduced as Ros, speaking to Lemnia. The latter of which ending up tripping again. He notes in the trip her flower crown fell from her head.

Deciding to take a break from the mother, Korrin picked up the flower crown and carefully cleared his throat. "It would seem you dropped this on your fall little one. Let me just...there." As he spoke he carefully set the crown back on her head.

Then the flame put a memory in his mind of his younger days with his own family. On His siblings, mother, Hi-. No. He couldn't think of them. He didnt want to lose his mind to the Flame over a memory. So instead, he kept a large grin on his face, making sure that grin was so big no one would see the hidden pain in his eyes. "There we are. All good."

Lemnia's eyes were brimming with tears as she sniffled and rubbed it her nose with the back of her sleeve.

"Thank you." She muttered, glancing between the two.

"I gotta get momma back now."

She pranced over to Cretas and, true to her earlier word, opened her right hand and smacked Cretas on the rump with a decently loud "SLAP!"

"EEP!" Cretas yelped with a hop in place.

"Oh, my love. I'm sorry. Did I get distracted again?" She asked, picking Lemnia up.

Lemnia nodded.

"Looks like you took another tumble, huh?"

Lemnia shook her head with an "MmMmm!", and Cretas chuckled softly before kissing her nose.

"Pardon." She called to Korrin and Ros. "Apologies for my rambling over there. I get excited sometimes." She chuckled. "Oh, hello there." She said to Ros. "My name's Cretas Estallamos. And this is my lovely little bumble bee, Lemnia."

"I said "hi" to her already. Her name's Ros." Lemnia said with a smile.

"Did you? Well, good job my love." Cretas looked back to their guests. "Korrin. I believe you asked about coming with us? Absolutely! We could use as many hands as possible for this journey!"

She turned to Ros.

"Might I interest you in joining as well? There's a new world out there beyond the horizon of the ocean. And we're going to find it, claim it, tame it, and make history! What do you say?" She asked with a pump of her fist, with Lemnia mimicking her in almost perfect sync along with a giggle.

Korrin raised both eyebrows at how Lemnia shook her mother out of her small tangent of being lost in her own world. Forcing a small chuckle down his throat for fear of embarrassing Cretas any further, Korrin listened as she said her answer to him about considering a spot for him on the expedition she’s organizing. Even though she didn’t outright say yes, the fact she allowed him to come in account of needing all the help she can find, caused his eyes to go wide, his grin almost reaching his ears.

”YAHOO! Thank you so much for this opportunity! I promise, I will not disappoint you Miss Cretas. I’m.. I’m as Happy as a Wolf Pup!” Korrin said, barely containing his own elation and happiness. He let out a laugh of relief, inhaling a huge gulp of fresh air before relaxing his grin. He had to contain it all for now, as he then turned to listen to both the banter of Mother and Daughter team, trying to convince Ros of potentially joining and coming along as well.

Korrin actually wondered if she’d join as well, if not for the sake of having more muscle on the team for any trouble that lay ahead, but to help ensure the safety of his, which would hopefully Turn into ‘their’, employer. ”The possibility of new exotic game meat is also there too.” he added, seeing if Ros was an avid hunter like he was. He didn’t have to appeal to her fighting capability, as he could tell when he first glanced at her, he’d stand no chance if he went one on one.

Cretas and Lemnia both chuckled.

"I admire your enthusiasm, Korrin. And you're right! There's going to be a lot of-"

Lemnia poked her mother's cheek, earning a soft "Oh," from her mother who smiled sheepishly and nuzzled Lemnia a bit before clearing her throat.

"Sorry. I was starting to get excited again. Shall we go talk more at the tavern? Old man Jahck has the best mead in town!"

Lemnia pinched Cretas' cheek while puffing her own in displeasure.

"Momma... You know what happens when you drink."

"Don't worry, love. I'm not going to partake in the drinks this time. I'll just have water."

"Promise?"

"Cross my heart and hope to die," she said, giving Lemnia another nuzzle.

Lemnia sighed softly and wrapped her arms around Cretas' shoulders.

"So, what do you say Korrin? Ready to head to the tavern?"

Ros gave the woman who was Lemnia's mother a small nod and smile as the woman apologized before quickly greeting her and the younger man, simply replaying with a small wave of her hand. A small chuckle creased her lips when Cretas introduced herself and reintroduced her daughter, without realizing that Ros had already made introductions with them, of sorts. "Pleasure to meet you, Cretas. Your daughter is certainly a character, that much is for certain." she said with a small smile, observing the interaction between the others as they discussed what she could only assume is what they were originally talking about before she interrupted them.

Feeling as though she was beginning to over stay her welcome, she began to inch her way out of the picture, only for Cretas to look back at her in time to suddenly stop in her tracks. "Oh uhm, actually. I was planning on talking to the captain and see if he had any work for me, as luck would have it." she said with a bit of an awkward smile as she rubbed the back of her neck. It might not exactly have been the truth or goal of what she had hoped to achieve, but it would help get her close to him, for her to be able to obtain her reward once she took care of business. Knowing full well she'd have to try to convince the others of her feign intent, "I may not be your typical explorer but, I can help with the heavy lifting as well as whatever odd jobs he may need. Seeing as I have no prior engagements, I could possibly consider joining the crew for this adventure. If he'll have me that is." she said with a coy smile.

Even if she didn't want to admit it, the opportunity to explore further, traverse the unexplored ocean waters, and discover what has yet to be traveresed, could lead to a hefty sum for her in return if she could bring anything of worth back with her. Besides, what harm could a little exploration do? Looking back at Korrin she gave the kid a small smile, "I'll take you up on that. First one to take down the largest prey...I'll uh, I'll come up with something for that bet." she gave him a small, playful wink. Looking back at Cretas as she mentioned the tavern, where she had just come from not even a few minutes prior. She could afford to go back and have a few drinks as she tried to warm up to the others, try to earn some favor in their eyes before properly talking to the captain...All was too tempting. "Drinks will be on me if you're up for it? And I'll take care of the payments for food as well, and whatever the little one may want?" Ros offered with a small wink at the small child that stood next to her mother.

"Ah... Unfortunately I made a promise not to drink today. But I'll have all the water good old Jahck can give me!"

She hoisted Lemnia up a bit, bounced a few times, and chuckled.

"And this little one will have milk, right love?"

Lemnia nodded firmly with a little grunt of approval.

"Then it's settled! To the tavern!"

Korrin chuckled at the antics of the Mother/daughter pair. ”Alright, I guess maybe I’ll have the mead then, but not too much. Wouldn’t want to get too drunk.” He said with a small laugh. Ros made a bet with him, but wasn’t sure about the wager. Ah well, if she wanted to compete about who the better hunter was, bring it on! When she winked at him, he puffed his cheeks in a small pout. ”Better be prepared for when I win then.” He mumbled. He then chuckled once more as Cretas reiterated that Lemnia wanted her to stay sober for the day.

That was fine by Korrin, more mead for him, if he wished at any rate. He was just happy that opportunity opened it’s doors for I’m to make his mark on the history of the world. As he cracked his knuckles and gave a big smirk. ”Yes Ma’am! Off to the Tavern!” He said, following her lead.

——

Korrin was in a happy mood that evening. He was back in the tavern, drinking down the last of his celebratory mug of mead. He laughed and celebrated what life had thrown at him today with his new friends. He told funny stories about some of his hunts, especially a kid friendly version about his hunt of the boar which now he wears as a cloak. ”The Boar after getting hit with one arrow runs like mad to me, I dodged and the poor fella knocked himself out on the rock face! Then I finished it off, and now I wear him on my head now! So that people can either be intimidated by his ferocious stare, or look at it and wonder, ‘How silly did that mighty beast have to be to be taken down by one hunter?’ He finished with a chuckle. ”Anyway, that’s also how I earned enough money to buy my sword.”
