Story:


It was an abominable heat for a spring in the land of Ghar-Tho. The people were hunting shadows to cool themselves. Even the rivers were dry. The sun wasn't that big,but the birds clearly weren't singing their love song anymore. The lovely waterfalls weren't giving cool water anymore. Why? Why was so hot in the land of Ghar-Tho? It was like lava was flowing in the lands. The whole world of Ghar-Tho,The Fifth Universe,was on stakes:this heat brought sudden death to the animals and the earth was arid. Nothing was the same:the butterflies weren't showing their beautifully colored wings anymore,the insects where fleeing,the animals dying.
"What should we do?"was the common question. "The ruler is corrupt and won't help us!". "We will die in here!". This was the people's thinking. If Ghar-Tho was a green realm with lovely sights,big mountains,and very beautiful fauna,it now was degrading. Why you ask? No one knows! The milk wasn't the same and the villagers could only rip off meat for a dinner from an animal.
The food was meager,or even littler. The payments were smaller and smaller. Riots were ahead. And then,one day,from nowhere,appeared a strange dark elf who said that he had in posses the Luna Crystal. This was the Crystal with which The Master himself sealed his brother into hell. This was the Crystal that kept Ghar-Tho so lively so many years. When the townspeople heard that,they knew that the Crystal was stole from their palace. But the question was how? When the folks rushed into the dark elf,they basically ran through smoke. It was an illusion. But still,very well cast. It was clearly that a master mage was the one who stole the Crystal. "Blasphemy!"the people said. "Of course that you fear what you cannot understand!"the elf said in an evil laughter. And it was true! The folks from the country knew about nothing of magic. "You may fear me,because I am the one who shall destroy you!"said the elf.
After that encounter,the temperature decreased to normal. But even worse,the hell itself was unleashed! If the Crystal shall breake then the equilibrium will be torn,and the Hell's will be able to breach in the mortal realm. But,as the Crystal was used to seal the Hell away once,it must be used to seal it again. In Ghar-Tho,cracks from which the Hell's creatures where emerging appeared one by one. They were rising one and one.
"Hear me,hear me!We shall die here today!"said someone."But there is still hope!"came out of nowhere a Priestess of The Life appeared. "The Master sent us a prophecy: ""In the land of No Man's Land,there from sand will appear the Luna Crystal once again,but fear the high eared elf because he is the one who shall bring death to you!""!We sent convoys to search for information,but without proper help we shall not find anything,as No Man's Land is located nowhere and no one knows how to reach it." "Mother Priestess!We received another prophecy:""The white haired woodsman who shall come from nowhere will find the life again."",but who is this white haired woodsman?"
"The truth shall emerge from nowhere and so fear the long eared elf!"a coated man appeared. He was wearing a robe all over his body,as you couldn't describe not even his face. Then he let the hood off:he was a 6 foot 4 inches white haired elf with an avearge of charisma and some good looking physique. But his talent was unknown.
In times of need,when The Master cannot intrude,who shall rise and defeat the evil lords?

Mechanics(How The Game Is Played)


First off,let me start by telling you this:this isn't your average roleplay! I believe that the immersion shall be fully and totally in a roleplay. This is why I wanted to give you the best understanding of mechanics I could.

0:Things will require stats


The stats aren't there for nothing. For example you will need 25 intelligence and 15 strenght to steal something or 30 strenght to kill a cyclops.

1:Magery and spells


As it would take too much time(maybe a full day)to categorize all of the spell classes,I decided not to use classes(Illusion,Conjuration,etc.). Instead I use a system that wasn't that used:Agent+Reagent. What do I mean you ask? Well,pay attention: the agent is basically a word or a phrase(Ghrn Jhid;Shias Medieas;etc.){this aren't actual phrases so you may do the best not to waste your time}. These will be learned by the time when I will run the game. How you ask? Simply! The agents will be attained by talking to population,reading books,hearing rumors,etc. They may not be received in forum posts but actually in PMs,which I will send to you. You can't decide when you will receive those. You will just do your best to try and find them by playing the game and following your quest. You will receive a mail from me with the title "You have heard/learned/etc. a new spell!". No one may say that he is my replacer and give you spells. Trust no one to be my helper if I didn't officialy announced it!When you receive it,you may write in in notepad or on your character description. I will also keep the track with what spells I gave you.

Now that the problem with agents has been cleared,let's talk about reagents: Reagents are the substance/liquid/soil/etc. which you must swallow/blast at/etc. when you are saying the words for the spell to actually work. The reagents are scattered around all the world: from dragon fangs to ordinary grass, they are ordinary items you will find anywhere and everywhere(if the place is right).You may collect them,but you must remain to human limits(I mean not something like:"And then,X collects 1000 goblin heads and goes home."because this is impossible).

As the Agent+Reagent problem has been solved,what about the spells? Well,the spells aren't that hard to understand:when you have the right recipe(which,as with the agent, I will mail you)you can cast the spell. The spells are anything and everything:they let you change the world to your wants.I don't use a mana bar or something like it, but excess of spells means breakdown!So be carefull!

2:Alchemy and crafting


Alchemy and crafting... What to say about those? Well,let's start with alchemy: To make potions you will need 3 things: a bowl(or something similar>a cauldron,a can,a cooker,etc.) which you will use to smash the ingredients and combine them,a smasher(a rock,broken glass,sword,etc.) and the recipe. You will get the recipe in the same manner you will get the Agent for magic.

And what about crafting? Well,here things get a little more complicated: to craft you will need a hammer,dagger,hand,etc. which you will use to tan a hide,to smash hot iron,etc. Then you will need an anvil,a tanning rack,an oven,something with hot water to cool the hot metal,etc. The recipes will be received in the same manner as Agents for magic. Now here is the hard part:to make a leather armor you can't just use a wolf pelt,you must tan it first! To smash hot iron you first need to shape it and then put it in a build(for sword,arrow,etc.). To get ore you need to pick ore veins(where you need to get a pickaxe) and so on. So you must keep to reality when crafting(but you may break reality when you know the spell).

3:Inhuman powers


Another thing I wanted to talk about are the inhuman powers which govern some of your imagination: first off,if not using a spell/enhancement,you aren't allowed to post inhuman phrases like: "And then the human(name here)was attacked by a giant cyclopes. After a successful attack he jumped as high as 30ft.(which is inhuman for a normal man) and with a slice of his trusty "little dagger" he killed the mighty beast!" because it would be a turn off so great for me and a break of immersion that I wouldn't accept! BEWARE:AT FIRST AND SECOND INHUMAN POST YOU WILL GET A WARNING! AT THE THIRD ONE YOUR CHAR. WILL DIE!

4:Enhancements,infusing/imbuing


Enhancements are divided in 2 categories:temporary(which last for x number of posts or in-game days) and permanently. Now,they both are applied in the same manner:enhancements are either spells or potions which when applied to the weapon,armor,hand,etc. take on an effect(like better charisma,higher strength,invisibility,etc.).

Infusing/imbuing is applied on the outside of the weapon(not on the inside,like at Enhancements) and only last 1 combat post. They are poisons or other coatings which are applied on the arrowhead,sword,etc. or used on open wound to poison your enemy.They last 1 combat post.

5:Combat posts:real time combat and play-by-post combat


In my game I will use 2 kinds of combat:real time combat and pbp(play-by-post)combat. Why? Because you may want to settle a fight fast!

So let's get on to the real time combat: the real time combat is a turn based combat in which the 2 players settle a time when they 2 must be on and enter the roleplay's private chat(not OOC). Here,the GM(which is me) will watch the very turn of the players. The player who will start the fight will have the advantage of rolling the first dice with 2 numbers higher(example:from 1d6 he may roll 1d8),but only on the first turn.The base fight is set at 1d6,then the more powerful magic is or the more powerful the sword is,the more points he will gain to roll(for example let's say he has a +2 sword he will get to roll from 1d6 an 1d8 dice). After every turn,they will stop and say a number from 1 to 50. I will roll a 1d50 dice and if someone guesses the number he will deal in the next turn a critical strike(he will roll double the number he had to roll>for example 1d6 with critical strike becomes 1d12). The difference of points will be lowered from the loser's health: for example X player rolls a 5 and Y player rolls a 6,X player loses 1 health point .

Now let's talk about pbp fights. As the players decide to battle in this manner,they will battle with the creativity of posts. Me and other 3 players(which I will decide) will judge the match when the 2 players fight will be over. To fight in this manner, the two players will open a new topic in the place named Battle Grounds. Here the title will sound like this: X(name of first character) fight with Y(name of the second character). Then,when they decide they finished,we 4 will judge the match to decide the winner. We will mostly point rich of details and realism so be sure to be creative. They may post anything related to battles in their topic. You will PM me when you BOTH want to start a battle and I will open a new place inside of Battle Grounds.

I know I talked about the fights,but how do you start them? Simply! You will mail me when you BOTH will agree to fight and you will specify what kind of fight you want:real time combat or pbp. You may start the battle only after 3 days of the day when the announcement was made.You may also bet items for the fight.

All the fights may also be done in groups:1vs2; 2vs2; 50vs50; etc.

6:Item powers and rarities


In this roleplay the item powers are for realtime combat(Sword of Serpentis>stats:roll +3) for pbp combat (He then launched the mighty attack at his opponent) and for the roleplay(The sneaky goblin stoled the sword from the bearer's hands and ran with it.A new quest,one of retrieval,was launched). For example, the Sword of Serpentis would be a highly valued sword so it would cost more(which would bring more tentations to the thieves to steal it or it would be a sword which inflicts fear in opponents(both in roleplay and pbp).

The item rarity will be announced when you try to steal,find or buy a new weapon,spell,armor,etc. And when I say that the item is rare it means that the item is rare and there are only like 10 weapons like it. Or if I say Legendary Rare then you got your hands on one of the very best items in my roleplay! Legendary Rare Mean only one of a kind weapon. But,except for the Legendary Rare,the other number vary(in example: Rare Sword of The High Priestess>8 of a kind,Mantis Dagger-7 of a kind,etc.).

And so the tutorial ends!Enjoy the game!
