Fortune Favors the Fool (Crucible take three- OOC/ Interest)

Postby Merxiel Othir » Wed Mar 05, 2014 7:10 am

[spoiler] Image [/spoiler]

Brevlan, a city as old as stone some say. Legend has it that it was razed to the ground countless times, and rebuilt atop its own ruins in the mountainside countless more. The truth is far simpler, the ruins within the mountain are just that, ruins, unknown in origin, they were there before the city was first built. Regardless, the city has always been the site of unrest, whether the source be civil amongst its citizens, or be it of a more sinister origin from within the Old City, where vagrants and criminals reign. It is not a kingdom, or a principality, or any form of Monarchy or Empire, it is governed by the Rule of Three. Three individuals, known as Praetors collectively rule and govern the city from within their temple at the highest point in the city, so it is and has been for countless centuries. Currently Praetors Cassian, Mordred, and Arash rule the City. Beneath the Praetors, are nine Evokers, three for each Praetor, they act in a fashion, as personal agents, messengers, etc. of the Praetors, and in military situations, they act as Generals. Beneath them lay the top tier of the ranks of the Guard, called Cleansers, these "Paladins" of the Temple, command the knights of the Temple and the City Guard. This Rule of Three is considered by the denizens of Brevlan, to be superior to any Kingdom, more just, more fair. It is a presumption born of Hubris, for, like any system governed by man, it is susceptible to man's weaknesses, greed, lust, malice, these weaknesses in turn breed corruption, and corruption brings destruction. It is a cycle that Brevlan has been through numerous times, and yet it still lives, resurrected from ashes, much like the Phoenix that the Temple so arrogantly adopts as its sigil. However this time, it's different. Attacks from the Old City are more frequent than ever, Bandits, outlaws, and alchemical abominations, creatures more twisted and malevolent than can be remembered slither up from the bowels of the earth, and, something far more sinister stirs, a Praetor schemes and plots within gilded halls, those who call the Old City home grow restless, stirred by talk of revolution, and the city prepares itself for the coming chaos. Three threatens to become one with plots hatched in shadow. But shadow hides more than secrets, and those that call greed their profession will profit from the chaos, or be swallowed by their ignorance.

Alright, so this is the third incarnation of this rp, but in this round I'm switching the plot around, as well as a bit of the City itself. I'm looking for 4-6 people to get in on this hopefully. It will be in the Mature section. Also below will be descriptions of some of the more Important people, organizations, and places in the city of Brevlan. The first of which will be my (main) character. Then following that will be NPC's and the like. That said if any of them strike your fancy and you wish to play as them, PM me and we'll talk, I'm even willing to let people change things about the characters if they have ideas, names, genders, whatever, just pm me with your ideas and we can work something out. Also. This list may and likely will be updated with more people (such as your characters :P ), places and groups as they become relevant.


Regardless of whatever characters you choose or create, the premise is simple, at least at first. All of you, whether you were born and raised in the city or are a foreigner to Brevlan, have received a note from an anonymous source claiming that “somethingâ€

Haha, this RP again! Alas, I have vowed not to join more RPs, but maybe somewhere through this I'll jump in if I'm allowed. Good luck, Merx.

Big thanks to Gid for the set! :D

Indeed, though it is quite different in many ways than the first two attempts. Perhaps third time's the charm.

Wow. I love all the detail in the setting. I'm interested. Maybe as a white weaver if that's ok, but I'm not sure yet.

Name: Simon Royce

Gender: Male

Age: 32

Personality: Simon is a very moral man, even though judging from his recent past that wouldn't be the case. He enjoys joking with certain people, if he's close enough with them, but otherwise is a quiet individual. He will speak what is on his mind whenever the case comes into question. He seems friendly enough. His most recent past haunts him now, however.

Appearance: Simon stands about 5'11 to 6 foot tall, weighing about 180-185 lbs with most of it being muscle with a low percent of body fat from the rigorous training and diet that he's been on for the past couple of years. He keeps his hair short on top, but even shorter on the sides, that betray a dark brown, almost black in color. His cheeks hold a 5 o'clock shadow. His clothing is light with some hard leather on his forearms, around his stomach, and his legs with a linen shirt and pants.

Career/Job/Skills: Simon is an expert with weapons and holds a very high martial prowess. He wouldn't have survived as long as he has without that. He's been taught techniques from his father when he was but a boy that has been long lost to the generations. He knows blacksmithing and even enjoys the moments that he has been able to do so.

Name: Oralee Satchel

Gender: female

Age: 26

Personality: Born to slaves of a wealthy family, Oralee feels she owes her freedom to the Red Mages. She was always a good student, quiet, hard working and obedient if not the sharpest or fastest learner. She takes rules and orders very seriously and derives a lot of her sense of self value from earning approval from others. She takes pride in all she does and works hard. She rarely relaxes and keeps mostly to herself but wants to earn respect and honor. She is trustworthy with a good heart underneath it all but often doesn’t have a strong enough will to act on what she suspects is right. She does enjoy music and has a good voice and will turn to music when she does decide it’s alright to relax a moment. As a mage, she’s made great progress since her youth and while far from the strongest weaver, even for her age, she has good control and has enough ability to have earned moderate respect among her peers.

Appearance: A rather plain girl of short stature and a petite build, there is little about her that stands out about her. Her hair and complexion are dark which makes her very light brown eyes seem a little out of place. Her hair is thin and halfway down her back and often worn in a braid or braided bun. She dresses in rather simple dresses though she always wears a sash around her waist with the sigil of the Red Mages embroidered on it.

Career/Job/Skills: White weaver. She’s a proud member of the Red Mages and has moderate skill at her craft.

Name: Lady Fae

Age: 29

Career: "Entrepreneur"

Personality: Fae is many things - reclusive, intelligent, ruthless, practical,

Appearance: As pictured above.

Skills: Unbeknownst to most, Lady Fae is a weaver. She discovered her art by accident and was trained in the same location as Charles, which is how they met. She is a Green Weaver, and a powerful one. Sometimes however, her weaving doesn't quite go to plan and other strange things have happened...

Character Bio: Rumor has it she is the owner and operator of the Gilded Girdle, the largest and most popular brothel in Brevlan. It is also said that she even takes on some clients herself, but who can say what is true except from the Lady herself. Truth be told she's rarely seen, within or without the thin walls of her palace of pleasure. In actuality, the brothel is a fully operation front and base of operations for the Thieves Guild in Brevlan, and she is the overseer of both lust and greed. Word within the guild says that she and Charles have had relations in the past. Some say they still do, and it is known for a fact that he has ties to the guild. However if one mentions the Master Thief's name in her presence, her face grows tight and her gaze drops an icy chill upon the room. They used to operate the guild together, long ago, but a difference of opinion on both methodology and practice has constructed a chasm between them that is only rarely, and briefly bridged.

POST IS UP! sorrrrry for the delay folks. It's not much of an intro, but it's something. Hoep ti's good enough. Also. Myself and likely Ant will be playing not only our characters, but some of the various npcs of import in the city. That said they are there to be used by everyone as needed, with the exception of Lady Fae who is now Gideon's character. If any other exceptions arise they will be noted in the OOC. Thank you all for your patience!


EDIt: Also! it's up to each one of you individuals to come up with your own item, be it a person or a thing or whatever, that was taken from you, it is your characters personal motivatino to obey the note they were given. Also as indicated above the note says to meet at the gilded girdle, and implies that your character will not be alone.
