Word!

This is the thread for planning out the Sutch-based RP we (myself, Acadian, Uleni Athram and Darkness Eternal) have started for general discussion of the RP itself.

Also, the title is totally a placeholder one and is up for change. Whether it will be changed or not, well, we'll see.


NOTE: As of 21/01/12, with the beginning of the RP proper, we are no longer recruiting.

Uleni's the one with the main idea outline, but I think it's going to mainly be about the disappearance of the city of Sutch from the continent of Cyrodiil (it was going to be a city in Oblivion but then got cut in development). That's all I've got in terms of details, but it's going to mainly be an urban setting, I think, and, well, that's about as much as I know at the minute.

Uleni, get on the thread and give us some details!

I've never done role-playing before. Can you give me a better idea of what it is.

I suppose the best way to think of it would be to view it as a collaborative story were you have control of one character within it. Generally, you'll write a short story-segment of a few hundred words at most, detailing what they're doing in a situation, their interaction with other characters, be they player characters or NPCs, and then other RPers will post parts detailing their character's responses, and so on from there.

In this case, we're probably going to have a Game Master poster (I think it's going to be Uleni, but it may be me) who'll be providing the situations and settings, controlling NPCs and so forth.

What is the exact year of the Third Era does this take place?


--------------------
And yet I am, and live—like vapours tossed.
I long for scenes where man hath never trod
A place where woman never smiled or wept
There to abide with my Creator, God,
And sleep as I in childhood sweetly slept,
Untroubling and untroubled where I lie
The grass below—above the vaulted sky.”

Yeah, you're welcome to join, KoB. Uleni Athram is the man with the plan at this moment, so I'm just waiting for him to post some info on the thread.

DE: Haven't a clue on what year it's going to be. As I said, Uleni's got the outline for this, so hopefully he can furnish us with details if he has them. If not, we can always working out when it's going to be set; my money would probably be before the Oblivion Crisis, but I don't know for certain.

The plot

It is set pre-Crisis, in the year 425. There had been a new guild on the rise in the recent years. They call themselves the Adventurers Guild, and they pay handsomely for any unknown region chartered back into the map. They are lead by the charismatic Oedipus Nebraska, himself a veteran adventurer, and they quietly prospered along with the other two guilds in anvil, providing them with updated maps and shortcuts in their travels. They didn't had much monetary backing, only just managing their local chapter in Anvil. But they get a steady influx of willing adventurers, all of them wanting to be paid for their lifestyle.

One particular group discovered something deep in the bowels of Fort Sutch.

Or rather, something discovered them.

The accounts of the lone survivor of that group tell of hunched creatures, supremely pale, pointed ears, and with red, evil eyes. At first, it was decided to be another form of goblinkind, since the Colovian Highlands were infested with them, but the second group that ventured down the depths fanatically swears they were not goblins. They were another thing entirely. Similar, yes, but they had a cruel intelligence that sparks behind those eyes. The third group was lead by Oedipus Nebraska himself, and with him, they managed to clear out the infestation of the mysterious species. They lived in total darkness, and they used a chitin-like material as the source iof their weapons and dwellings.

Along with that, they discovered an irredeemably ancient oaken gate, sculptured with an unknown heraldry, breeming with magic. It was seemingly cut into the depths of the earth itself, and it led further down.

Oedipus, the adventurer that he was, called for another group and with additional numbers, they investigated and entered. As befits the grimdark cliche of adventure, only Oedipus alone came back, nearly dying from the wounds he sustained wherever that gate led. He tells nobody of what transpired there, only that he's eager for another go, and hosts the expedition with both the Fighters Guild and Mages Guild.
****




Yeah. The cliche horror adventure story, delving in dungeons deep to discover .... something that leads to many deaths and a reward that is of questionable value. That's the plot, boys. I'd wager you've heard far more impressing plots from a two-year old. You guys still up for it. after reading that? LOL

Weeellll.... You're in for a suprise what with all the twists I came up with. I hope. Let's hope that you guys don't see it coming, eh? As for the GM thing, sure. I'll try my hand in that, but incase I muck up alot and don't make sense, we can always vote for the Colonel or somebody else to takeover. That said, I'm also entertaining the idea of a GM Duumvirate. I don't make sense, you guys know that. So I may need help in being coherent, plot-wise. That, and the sadism of one individual is always overshadowed by the brutality of two sadists joining together! HAHA!

You guys have any questions whatsoever? Any desire for a debate or something? I feel as if though I'm lacking in my explanation above, but I can't pinpoint it....

The plot seems interesting. I can't wait!

Am I allowed to create my own character or am I assigned one?

Should I put some kind of Bio for my character up on this thread?

Can my character be a werewolf, or does my character have to be human?

And on being a werewolf.. Well, DE in the last RP played a vampire so I guess there's no problem in that. Just don't go balls-out with that little quirk of yours, and make sure not to make your character OP. Its not really fun when one of your teammates is a one-hit-killing invincible XXxMcAwesomeKillstealr98xXX. IMO, make him one of the cursed, not the blessed, of Hircine. Give him reasonable gifts, but reasonable flaws also.

As for the human thing, be whatever race you want to be.

We must wait for the others though.

I wouldn't mind doubling-up as GM, or maybe taking the reins at points if you want to spend some time RPing as well, Uleni. I do like that outline, though; that strikes me as having plenty of potential for Falmer-based fun.

Now, time to work out what character I'm going to play. Hmm, sneaky, cunning Redguard thief or axe-wielding thief who's convinced that Talos is talking to her personally. Decisions, decisions...

Only... the Falmer aren't the only monsters out there. I'm entertaining the thought of malignant spirits whispering you to madness.. A glory that once was, now an eldritch horror. Like I said, I'm having ideas on how to make this RP hell for you guys. Haw haw haw!

I'll pm you my plans, Colonel, and together we shall scheme!

Uleni, that all sounds great, with plenty of flexibility. If it doesn't make much diff to the plotting, any chance of bumping the timeline so it occurs a few years after the OB crisis instead of before? I'll be using a variant of Buffy from after the OB crisis is why I'm asking. If its a problem at all, I'm fine simply 'time traveling' her to where/when we need to be and not worrying about it. smile.gif

I love the idea that Indiana Jones Oedipus Nebraska (cool name) is recruiting from the FG and MG to assemble his new party.

A variant? Sure, no prob. I see no bumps in doing so, other than a few minor tweaks here and there

So wait....

Is the timeline going to be a few years after the oblivion crisis, or before?

Now to choose my character....

A few years after. Now we wait, I guess.

This sounds fun! I've got my character sheet drafted. I'll edit and tinker with it some more before putting it up.
