The Forsaken (Round 36)

The Forsaken

Five solar cycles ago the gods started a war. Whether it was a true argument of the god, a form of natural selection, or they were just bored, the gods forced their creations to fight in their name. Many races died out and many more were decimated to only a few individuals. These dwindled races, who were deemed no longer useful by the very gods who made them fight, are known as the Forsaken.

Five individuals of these forsaken races, five creatures who were presumed dead, now find themselves awakened in a place unlike anything they have ever seen. How they got there is a mystery the last thing each of them remembers is fighting on a battlefield. Strange creatures roam the halls and untold madness lurks around every corner. Weill these forsaken team up to figure out what happened to them and escape this maddening place or will they kill each other like renegade warriors unaware of the wars end? Will you guide them to safety or destroy everything and everyone in their path?

Choose your warrior.

Stealing a quick page from ReadsVoraciously's game Clan Rampage:

Actions
Each character can perform 1 minor action and 1 major action per turn, or 2 minor actions per turn. Minor actions must take place chronologically before major actions, as all major actions end your turn.

Movement
Movement into an unexplored area is a major action. Movement into a previously explored area is a minor action, making it possible to double move as long as the first area has been previously explored. Movement within an area is a free action.

Item/Object Interaction
Using items, such as potions, is a major action. Giving away items is a minor action. Looting found items is a minor action. Looting dropped items is a minor action during combat, or a free action after combat. Equipping or unequipping items is a free action.

Combat
All combat actions and healing are major actions. Healing takes place after damage. If a character reaches 0 HP and does not receive healing, they are dead.

It's on the same layer isn't it? Well...You can use crtl z or bring up history. If it's saved then you might have to erase. If it's paint then just use bucket tool.

Check again :D

Sorry, I copied the "Esporiand" from the player above, but I changed it before you posted, so my post shows no signs of editing.
The fact that my "Esporiand" has a green beak should have told you what creature I chose :lol:

Really, you should have noticed the error. Who calls their Esporiand "Cockadoodle"? :lol:

Cockadoodle might look like this:

Assuming you let me play, of course :wink:

Way too late my friend. The character is already colored... How about this if the game comes to a respectable end I will draw your Esporiand again with that look.

Updates will take place as often as I can manage. After everyone posts their actions if I have all the artwork done already I will make any needed alterations and get the updates up ASAP.

The Forsaken slowly awaken taking in their new sites this is what they see.

Pinknose ends up in a caved in room, one side is full of rocks the other is made out of a shiny reflective surface. A gem seems to be integrated into the rock itself. It is the color of Nose's skin. Nose can smell that there is a door to the right and no monsterous smells await him in the next room.

Image

HollowFang rises in a brick room. It is dank, and appears to have been flooded recently, the bricks appear ancient but in good condition. They encase a green gem in the center of the room. There is a door to the left.

Image

DarkRoot comes to life in a flooded room. The walls far walls are made of rock but the back wall seems to be glass that leads to a large amount of water. There is a crack in the glass allowing water to pour in. There is a gem embedded into the ceiling the same color as his trunk. There is also a whole in the wall leading to a room to the right.

Image

Orka recovers in a wooden room with a large window in the center of the back wall. She can see the sky and can tell she is very high up. The roof seems to be made of rock while the walls and floor are a strange type of wood. There is a hole in the floor leading downwards with a ladder. Above the window is a gem the same color as Orca.

Image

Cockadoodle is awakened in a strange room. The far walls, ceiling, and floor are pure white except for a whole with a rope hanging down out of the ceiling. The back wall appears to be made of stained glass but int the center is a strange gem the same color as Cockadoodle's feathers.

PinkNose will examine the gem (minor?) and then leave the room through the exit (on the right).

Very nice art, btw.
