Fantasy RP Discthread (aka, Author-Man is a lying bastard)

Postby Author-Man on Sat Oct 13, 2007 1:18 pm

Recently, I said that I wouldn't be starting any new RPs for a while. However, I have also said of myself (on numerous occasions) that I am a lying bastard. Well, I'm up to my bastardry once again, and am starting a NEW RP! Of EVIL! GASP!

First thing you all need to know, is that it is set in an alternate version of a universe I created for a comic. I say ALTERNATE, because I have changed quite a bit in order to avoid spoilers. Many characters no longer exist, other characters have undergone minor personality changes, and the world's history has been drastically altered to avoid SPOILERZ! for the aforementioned comic. Here's a basic overview;

The world is reminiscent of Final Fantasy, due to the nature of the comic. However, I have only borrowed a few elements that interested me, and the world itself is my own. There are Chocobos, there are Moogles (we'll get to them later), there are classes (like, dragoon, dark knight, etc.). There are also things entirely of my OWN CREATION! MWAHAHA!

The world map... Think of it like a circle, divided into three parts, and with a smaller circle in the middle. The central circle is the nation of Alexandria. Alexandria is your typical medieval European style empire, with castles and the like. It is populated mostly by humans, called Alexandrians. It is technically a monarchy, but it's a monarchy with a very strong military force. Said military force is led by Raphael Drako, a legendary Dark Knight hero (yes, that sounds like an oxymoron, but it isn't. Shut up). Think of him like... Chuck Norris. People fear and respect him around the world... though not for the same reasons as Chuck Norris. And there are no Raphael Drako jokes. Oh, and he rides a Chocobo. That's about it for him. Alexandria itself is very much a melting pot country. All of the major races exist there, with the exception of Pantherans... I'll get to that later, though.

Next up is Panthera, which occupies the third of the map to the Southeast of Alexandria. Panthera is populated by anthropomorphic cat people known as Pantherans. The country is barren, and reminiscent of the African savannah. The people are very tribal in nature, with an emphasis on survival of the STRONGEST. They also have been on-and off at war with Alexandria. However, said wars have petered out and there hasn't been a flare up of fighting in over a hundred years. That said, Alexandria and Panthera have an unwritten understanding that both should leave the other alone.

To the Southwest is Lou, home to the Lou, a race of anthropomorphic canine and vulpine peoples. They are a proud race, and the Lou government is the closest thing this world has to a democracy. It is reminiscent of America in many ways, though in a medieval setting. There is even a mafia, though there are only rumors of this. And, as far as the mafia is concerned, those rumours will stay rumours.

To the north is Mysidia, home to a race of anthropomorphic mice, rats, ferrets, beavers, raccoons, bats and other various

I'm interested but I'm not sure I can handle another RP right now...


But if I was to join I'd probably want to be a civilized monster.

Just a question. How anthropomorphic are they? 'Get shot with the TF Gun' or Kin level?

TF gun typee anthro. And... MORE INFO! YATA!

First off, magic. Getting spells is... well... I'll get to that later. I don't want to have to keep track of what level who is, but if I did, you would get new spells depending on what level you are. But there's no way in hell I'm keeping track of stat based combat, so... Yeah. As to what spells there are, that I do know. The spellbook is basically what there is in FFIX (look it up), and it does much the same thing. ULTIMA IS OFF LIMITS. It is powerful enough to wipe out a small island, and that is overpowered as far as I'm concerned.

Magus University is the school for magic, science, and damn near everything scholarly. It is where you go to become a Mage of any colour; Black (offencive type spells for those who don't know); White (healing and defencive type spells); Red (a bit of both, along with better physical stats, but less magical stats and less spells); or Blue (complicated. I'll get to them later). It is also a centre for historical and scientific study, and is home to the world's single largest library.

BLUE MAGES MAKE MY HEAD HURT! There are two types. One is purly scientific in nature, and has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH MAGIC! This type is basically a glorified biologist, with the added benefit of being able to isolate the genes that allow monsters to do special abilities and gain those abilities temporarily. Yeah, that is scientifically impossible, but this is a fantasy universe. Shut up. The other type is... Well... You know that philosopher who said that thing about fighting monsters and the abyss looking into you? He was talking about the magical Blue Mages. Let's just leave it at that.

There's still more, but I think this is enough for now. Also, hopefully this is less of a wall of text.

Questions: 1: Are there non-mage classes which get a few spells, and 2: Are there race-specific classes, or is every class open to all (including monsters?)

PAtience, Padawan Kalga. Let me put up a bioformat first. And tell you about the joy of Summoning.
Which I will do, along with answering the questions that have been and will be asked, after I get me some shuteye.

You can do that with black magic, foo.

And if it's like in FF, then summoning is basically macro-magic. But don't quote me on that.

hmmm....this looks interesting, though I want some more info before deciding, to be specific:

1) spell lists (mostly becasue I don't want you making up spells on the fly) I'm assuming that you'll have black magic, white magic, and summoning magic if this is FF-esque?

2) jobs (or classes, or whatever you want to call them) list with basic description of what they stand for and what they can do.

I'm wondering how the Bio format will look. Considering everything in the RP, I'd say to be wary of it being very specific....
