Tossed up a brief post for Elysia, the home of the First, to help dangle the mystery. Stickied a Bio thread for people. I can do a planet bio thread too if needed. Any opening posts on a planet probably should have a brief bit about the world etc to help people get a sense of it. I'll probably be mostly overseeing things around and helping to set the stage as people craft their individual worlds and connections get woven.

Woot! Do we need to have bios approved before they're posted?

Mattson
09-08-2010, 08:20 PM
Well, what do you have for a concept first?

Sojourn
09-08-2010, 08:21 PM
Cool! Corey and I will get working on our bios and planet info soon.

Edit to add: Did you want that stuff PMed to you after we have worked out before we post it here?

Mattson
09-08-2010, 08:25 PM
I mostly want to get the basic ideas out there so we don't have people working in secret on the same base concept by accident. Trust me, its happened before. Gamer telepathy is a scary thing at times.

I was talking with Tiger yesterday and I came up with an idea for my characters and how they come into the story.

Since my characters will mostly likely not fit in like everyone elses (Since I'm not really understanding the whole story but I learn better by running with it) and since I'm new to this whole thing anyway, I figured that my characters could be from a different dimension. Like from the universe that I created with them and they're thrown into this one. Tiger thought it could work if I do it a certain way which I had already thought of doing, they're just show up... They don't know where they are, they don't really know why they're there (Well Victor won't), but they kinda don't really care. Victor is like the kid taken to their father's job, running around going "Ooooh what's that do?" in a way. Loki just adapts as fast as he can in order to survive. Later on it'll be explained on what happened but from when they arrive till then it's not really explained.

In other words they're there without a good reason and is explained later. Tiger and I like the idea....what do y'all think?

I also figured this could be best for at least an acting point of view, as you explain what's going on to my characters I'll figured out what's going on.

I think it sound great, 3K! Go for it! btw - you're not the only one who uses their character to figure out more about the world they're in for your own purposes! ;)

MST3KMAN
09-09-2010, 12:52 PM
YAY ME! HAHAHA I'm getting pretty stoked now.

Mattson
09-09-2010, 05:04 PM
It sounds good, 3K. Do think of a world for them to arrive on. Preferablly not Elysia. I don't want to start answering its secrets just yet.

Mattson
09-09-2010, 05:26 PM
3K, you may want to crop down smaller images for posting use. Uploadit is a great site for linking character images to here. And your image for Victor totally destroyed my mental image for him.

We're starting up Nero's thread. The people of Nero believe that Selene and Barrett have been in comas and they are finally waking up from them but have no memory of where they are or who they are but others know them. We both figured with a First it would be possible to unintentionally create false memories in mortals. For the citizens of Nero to remember things that never truly happen so the Firsts would seem to belong in the world.

Mattson
09-09-2010, 10:01 PM
Cool.

Hmm... I'm trying to make a character/bio but a lot of them seem similar to Cao or Sil... drats.

Well, if you want to toss ideas, I'm on IMs, Sil.

SilntAngl5
09-17-2010, 08:55 PM
I might so that when I have something a bit more solid. If I make a character, do I need to make a world for them to exist on, or can I plop them in someone else's?

Mattson
09-17-2010, 09:00 PM
Given we only have one world at the moment, I'd rather get a second one going.

SilntAngl5
09-20-2010, 05:50 PM
Okay. I call dibbs on a steampunk-magical world!

It needs a name, though....

Hey, sorry I haven't been around, I've been a little busy, but I should be here more regularly. Any suggestions where you would like Maverik, provided that he is still approved?

Mattson
10-14-2010, 03:39 PM
We've only had two people make First. Its not like we have a lot of plots running about. At this point with Maverik we have more not First then sorta awake First. I had been hoping for at least two planets up and active. And more people doing this. It seemed to have a fair amount of support starting out but not a lot beyond wait and see.

As for where to put him, figure a planet of your own, hunt a First, have fun.

Shadowseldil
10-14-2010, 06:11 PM
Sounds like a plan then. I'll get to work on that in a bit.

SilntAngl5

My world is likewise up.

I'm thinking up a few new characters, both for my world and for Sil's. I'll post them when I have more thought about it.

SilntAngl5
11-22-2010, 07:43 PM
Rock. Any questions about Emporium, Shadow, let me know!

Shadowseldil
11-24-2010, 07:48 PM
So, a few questions,

1) What are you thinking of as a plot?

2) Would you be opposed to having Maverik in as a secondary antagonist?

3) Do your two characters have any friends, i.e. characters that I could play? I was thinking of a sort of tinkering scientist, orphaned, a child of the streets, but a sort of child prodigy, preferably a girl about 10 years old, give or take.

SilntAngl5
11-27-2010, 03:12 PM
1) I haven't decided where exactly to start yet, but we need to start along the lines of First waking up, yes? Here's what i've got so far:

If you haven't read their history in Emit and Pasce's bios, please do so!

Emit tries (or tried depending on where we start) to help Pasce see the truth in her dreams. After all their research, they are still unclear. The 5 members of the Magik High Council come to test Pasce to see if she can aptly apply all she was taught to rule (magik, strategy, tactics, etc.). She passes and a coronation date is set. Pasce's dreams get worse but she cannot see what it is she will do to send her world into chaos.

At the coronation, the 5 Councilmen (one from each province on Rekodo), call upon their founding ancestral spirits to bestow the power of rule upon Pasce. She ends up stealing the ancestral spirit's powers into herself, leaving the Councilmen utterly useless. They want to try Pasce for her crimes, but she passes out (falls asleep) and Emit, compelled by the 5th oath, takes her away to hide her and protect her. He ends up trying to revive her magikally, but interferes with whatever's going on to the waking-up First. It ends up sparking his awakening and he, too falls asleep.

If you want, they can wake up at the house of your character.

Pasce also has an older brother that you can play if you like. She and her brother are very close. He is her Life Guardian and was raised to protect her.

2) No! That would be perfect! He can be hired to hunt Pasce (and Emit for hiding her from trial that would keep them from needing to fulfill the 5th oath). If you don't want to do that, we can work something else out.

3) Tinkering scientists would fit well in Emporium. Pasce has an older brother you can play or, I'd imagine your young child prodigy could have been a friend of hers from the school she went to. Or you could combine the two.

I don't know how long they should sleep for, either. Maybe Pasce can't stand trial until she wakes as her word cannot be heard and the 5th oath cannot be invalidated without it... so maybe they put she and Emit in stasis until they wake? If it needs to be years later, that way that can work.


Matts, any ruling about how long they should sleep?

Shadowseldil
11-27-2010, 09:58 PM
Then, I pose for you this character. I'm not sure how to fit her in yet, but I'll let you look at her.

Felicity Poahr

I'll have her history up once she is approved, but as a background: she's orphaned, and working as a mechanic of her own shop (Although not technically. She's more like a junior partner. But she has free reign of her little corner of the shop, as well as a list of dedicated customers.) The owner of the building is like an uncle to her: not really family but the closest thing she has. She can live on the street and gets around by hidden passages and rooftop trails like ragamuffins usually do in steam punk stories. However, she also has a few choice inventions she keeps to herself that help with transportation. She has plenty of money, but she's trying to save up to buy a little house for herself.

As for Maverik, he's really more of a lone-wolf hunter. He's not the type to get involved with governments or anything of the sort. He's more then... well, not happy, but... he'll just shoot and move along. However, since he is a god-hunter, it is reasonable that he would be sent to target the awakening First.
I do think it would be a good idea to have him targeting Pasce, though. I never fully explained it, but he has a soft spot for young girls. Also, my character plays to that, too. It's an aspect of Maverik's history that will play out in the stories.
Of course, that is not to say he won't still shoot them. Just that he'll do more investigating before he shoots them.

As far as her older brother, I can play him if you need someone to do. I'd just as soon not, but if you need someone, I can.

SilntAngl5
12-04-2010, 01:50 PM
I like the sounds of her! What kind of things will she be a mechanic of? Keep in mind, this is a world of magic so the possibilities are endless. It could be anything from flying cars to anything you can come up with. Would you like Pasce and Emit to run into her while they're fleeing? They'll need a place not in the big hub of the city, or not close to its magical epicenter, at least.

And you don't have to play Pasce's brother. I'll do it, if he comes around much.

Could Maverick be misinformed? Maybe he thinks he's hunting Emit and not Pasce? Or maybe the council want Emit killed for treachery and Pasce returned so she can be forced to give back the anscetral spirits? Both are awakening Firsts.

I was wondering if people can still join this, or is it too late?

Sojourn
12-22-2010, 10:46 PM
I say the more the merrier and I'm pretty sure Matts would agree too. It's starting slow and right now there's only three worlds up.

Monkey Kitty
12-26-2010, 02:33 PM
Cool, thanks Jenny. :)

I have some ideas for a character, but I'm going to be out of town for the next couple of days and I'm not sure whether I'll have internet access and/or time to write. When I get back, I'll do some catchup reading and try to get a bio posted.

Shadowseldil
12-27-2010, 11:49 AM
Three worlds, thank you.

Anyway, I'm going to get onto things I was going to do before I got busy.

You're welcome Monkey Kitty. Oops my bad Shadowseldeil. I meant three worlds.

Monkey Kitty
12-28-2010, 08:11 PM
Oh, one other question? (Though I'm still out of town. ;))

Can I play two characters? There's some possibility of that, and their stories would interrelate.

Shadowseldil
12-28-2010, 11:33 PM
Well, it would depend on the world (and by correlation, the GM), but I don't think anyone would have a problem with it.

Sojourn
12-30-2010, 07:46 PM
I don't think Matts would have a problem with it Monkey Kitty.

Optimus Prime

Having RPed with Matts for many years, I don't he'd have a problem with you joining Monkey Kitty or having more then one character.

Monkey Kitty
12-30-2010, 09:38 PM
Cool, thanks. :)

I'm still not 100% sure what I'm going to do. I'm in the batting ideas around in my head stage at present. ;)

Monkey Kitty
01-01-2011, 02:20 PM
OK, I've been working on a character. I'm just not quite sure where she belongs or how she should work into the story, or what world she belongs on. Basically at this point she could go in just about any direction, though if she gets pulled down a villainous path it would probably only be temporary until she figures things out a little more. Ultimately she's more of the good guy type, but at the moment she's pretty impressionable.

Any ideas for what to do with her?

(I'll put her in the bio thread once she's all finalized and stuff, I just wanted to let people have a look for now.)


***


Name: Gwynn Raincrow

Titles: Goddess of Storms, Bringer of Rain, That Weird Kid

Major Powers: Gwynn has the ability to transform into cloud form at will, making her invulnerable to most physical attacks, since they go right through her. However, this is more a defensive power than a combat ability because she is not able to counterattack in this form, though she can move from one location to another. Gwynn can become the cloud almost instantaneously, but reassembling her molecules afterward is a more complicated process, usually taking her 30 seconds to a minute of mental concentration to return gradually to normal.

When in human-like physical form, Gwynn is able to conjure small localized rain and lightning storms with a radius of at most about twenty feet outward from herself as the epicenter. She is not damaged by her own lightning, but nor can she yet target it more specifically than focusing a storm on her current location.

She's still learning.

Minor Powers: Gwynn has the ability to permanently alter her physical form, a power which replaces physical growth or change by aging in the long-term. However, it takes a tremendous amount of work and energy, so it's not something done on a whim, it's more like a chrysalis process. She would only change into a form she intended to stay in for a long time. Its purpose is to prepare her to enter a new life stage, if one should come.

Items of Note: Gwynn wears a small silver compass on a chain around her neck. The necklace has no special powers, but checking the magnetic fields around her now and then helps her keep her storm abilities focused.

Brief Description: Gwynn looks like she's about sixteen years old; she has the mind of an adult and does not physically age. She is about five feet tall and has a petite build. Her straight black hair is chopped off rather bluntly at chin length, and her skin is too pale to look entirely healthy. Normally her eyes are a startling and rather disconcerting red, but when she's using or about to use her powers they turn stormy grey. She usually wears simple dark-coloured clothes.

Because Gwynn had to choose her new form without having actually seen a humanoid up close, she is not a perfect copy. Though she's fairly pretty, there's just something indefinably "off" about her facial features, and she didn't realize red eyes would not be a normal colour because red is pretty and her favourite. Nor does Gwynn manage the physical stance and posture of a teen very well, and her movements are abrupt and birdlike.

Gwynn tends to have a rather guarded and wary manner until she is familiar with you, and her social skills are somewhat lacking simply because her opportunities for interaction have up till now been minimal.

World Hidden on/attached to: ?

History: Gwynn awoke as a lizard, with no memories of particular events but with a minor degree of innate knowledge about the cosmos around her. Once she had learned all she could as that lizard, she went dormant for a month in her chrysalis and assumed her current form.

Her sheer lack of history and knowledge is actually one of the defining points of Gwynn's current existence. Who am I? What am I? What can I do? and Why should I do it? are all very relevant questions to her at present.

Gwynn's main challenge is that she feels rootless and disconnected. She has nothing she thinks of as home, no relationships with any sentient creatures, and no sense of her past.

For her current incarnation, Gwynn has chosen a form that she believes will help her make connections and put down roots. Her quest for knowledge is at least as much about learning emotions as learning practicalities.

At the moment she is somewhat malleable, but she also has a strong internal moral compass that she is only beginning to discover as she sees what exists outside her comfortable but limiting lizard burrow.

I think she sounds like a good character and could fit into any of the worlds already established.

Monkey Kitty
01-02-2011, 11:14 AM
Cool. :)

I'm pretty open to where she could be. I realize this storyline isn't super fast paced, but I'm hoping to use her in a thread that's relatively active.

Other than that, I will defer to the world-creators about where she belongs. ;)

Sojourn
01-04-2011, 07:50 PM
Yeah it isn't very fast but there also isn't a lot of players right now. It's pretty much up to you about where you'll think she'll fit in it best and what type of world setting you want to play in.

Optimus Prime
01-04-2011, 07:55 PM
Of the worlds created, Sil's World of Emporium seems to have the most technology.

Monkey Kitty
01-04-2011, 10:28 PM
I would be cool with playing in any of the worlds. :)

What I'm more concerned about is story, because I'm not sure what people have planned. I don't want to just butt Gwynn in and have her disrupt someone's plot.

So does any plotter want a... whatever the heck Gwynn is... for your ongoing story? :P

Shadowseldil
01-05-2011, 12:19 AM
Hmm... what's her general age?

Monkey Kitty
01-05-2011, 08:55 AM
She looks sixteen because she chose that form for this particular physical incarnation of herself, but she has the mind of an adult.

She's been awake for what I imagine would be a few months.

Shadowseldil
01-05-2011, 09:32 AM
Okay. I need to know because it may change the way Maverik interacts with her, should you choose one of the stories he's in. Which could be all of them, eventually.

Monkey Kitty
01-05-2011, 09:38 AM
That's actually why she chose the form she did. ;)

She wants to learn about interactions between people, and she feels that appearing young makes her seem less threatening and potentially more sympathetic at first glance. She doesn't have any intention to deceive anyone and would explain the situation if asked, she just wants to make it as easy as possible for herself to make friends. :)

Optimus Prime
02-07-2011, 09:08 PM
Monkey Kitty if you're still interested you are welcome to join Planet Nero's thread. Jen and I have been busy for the last few weeks because of work, spending time with Teddy, and all the snow we got but we'll be able to post in that thread pretty regularly soon.

Monkey Kitty
02-09-2011, 07:34 PM
Last I heard from Sil, she was having computer issues. Her computer would close the browser when she tried to make a post or send an e-mail. Since I've not heard anything since then, I assume it's an ongoing problem. :(

Shadowseldil

Quick question about Nero: How much Universal Energy is there on the planet? In other words, do the people of the planet have any sort of magic?

Sojourn
02-13-2011, 04:37 PM
Average citizens of Nero do not possess magical abilities. They aren't aware that magic really exists and if told about magic they would think it was for stories. You are welcome to create a character who can use magic on Nero though. Luca and Jared both have some sort of magic but no one else knows that.

Monkey Kitty
02-14-2011, 05:59 PM
I'm having trouble deciding where (geographically speaking) Gwynn should start. What would you guys recommend? Is there a location where it would be best for her to begin?

Sojourn
02-14-2011, 09:31 PM
That's up to you because Corey and I can work Gwynn in either way. Pagos is a snow kingdom that is ruled by Selene and Fotia is a desert kingdom ruled by Barrett. The plan is for Barrett to invite Selene to Fotia soon (we just have to get around to posting that and hope to do so in the next day or so).

Sojourn
02-22-2011, 11:36 AM
I think to start off it would be good for him to have his own place. Corey and I are getting closer to Selene and Barrett realizing they aren't normal but it'll be a while before they find out they are members of the First.

Honor's Angel
02-22-2011, 08:39 PM
Okay after some plotting I got a character ready. This Angel will be very similar to the Angel of the old Crossgen stories. She'll primarily be a healer but I call her the goddess of nurture because she has a very nurturing in personality and would use her powers to help others.

Shadowseldil
02-28-2011, 11:03 AM

What I mean is, in the over-arcing time line, when is it happening?

It's taking place during the present time.

It took me some thinking but the last name he would use is Resheph.

Monkey Kitty

I deleted mine and I'll have Gwynn do something else. ;)

Optimus Prime

LOL, we just had the same idea at the same time. ;)

Although Jared would probably be better off with Gwynn protecting him since she's a goddess.

Thanks, Jenny! Got a bunch of meds that are doing the trick. I've got an initial post typed up for my characters in Emporium. Shadow, I can't recall if we said our characters would know each other or not? If Emit does, he'd bring Pasce toward your super-mechanic gal. I can't remember what we decided. Was it in PMs or in the OOC...? *Wanders away to look*

Shadow - I found our chat in the OOC, but we didn't define the relationship of our characters. Any thoughts before I post?

Optimus Prime

Just to warn you guys, I'm going to be out of town from the 15th to the 23rd.

Okay, well, I should be back for a little while, but I might have to duck out again in a week or so to take care of certain matters. Maybe. We'll see when the time comes.

Anyway Sil, glad to hear you are doing a little better. I'll keep praying for you.
As for them knowing each other, I don't think necessarily that they would. I'll defer to your decision on that, but no, I don't think they need to.

Now I have to catch up. I hate catching up...

One other thing, Sil: I'm beginning work on an over-arching plot, and I'd like to know when Emporium takes place. Is it concurrent with the "present," or does it take place in the past somewhere?

For information purposes, Tyyran takes place about 19 years in the past.

03-14-2011, 10:06 PM
Have fun MK. :D

All right Selene and Barrett are going to be "visiting the menagerie" for a little while. Shadow did you plan to post the soldier coming from Pagos to tell Selene about the attack? If not, I'll post him. If you are planning to do so Luca is in the ball room right now so the soldier can talk to her while Selene is "busy".

Optimus Prime
03-14-2011, 10:10 PM

Once again Jen and I continue a tradition of the old CG boards. Our characters go to a party and always have to sneak off to have private "fun".

Honor's Angel
03-15-2011, 06:31 AM
LOL. It wasn't a old CG party without your characters going off somewhere. So does that mean Selene and Barrett will have a little "surprise" too?

Shadowseldil
03-15-2011, 12:53 PM
No I don't intend to post for him. You can do so and make up details. It's more fun, and honestly, realistic that way. Sort of a creative writing "telephone game."

Thanks for the prayers, Shadow :) Awful sweet of you. Things are on the up-and-up.

I'll just have Pasce have dreamed that going to Felicity's would work, if that's alright. I put a post up for you. Let me know if you'd like me to alter it at all.

I'm not sure about the time of Emporium vs. the present. How would it affect things if it were in the present or in the past? Is there a present timeline being Rped now?

There's a few people involved. The main characters are First but they don't really realize what that means yet.

Okay, I'll look around see what's being RP'ed. But, if someone would be so kind as to give me a tiny heads up on what's being rp'ed currently, I would appreciate that. I'd love to bring MC back, but I don't want to interfere with the current SL until I find a place to bring him into the story. Know what I mean? God, I've missed this.

Sojourn

Planet Nero (mine and Corey's planet) is the most active right now. My character Selene (Goddess of Ice and Queen of Pagos) and her lover Barrett (Corey's character and the God of Fire and King of Fotia) rule the planet's two main kingdoms. Someone is trying to start a war between their kingdoms and attempted to frame Fotia for attacking the capital city of Pagos. Selene and Barrett are trying to find out who the traitors are. Also on Nero is Gwynn (Goddess of Storms) who is Monkey Kitty's character. She lives at Barrett's place and appears to be a teenager. She can change her form and used to be a lizard. Jared (Barrett's advisor) found her wandering around Fotia and Barrett is letting her stay in his palace so she has a home. Angel (Goddess of Nurture) is Honor's Angel character. She runs the orphanage in Nero. Shadowseldil has a few characters running around, including one who is the traitor in Nero. Also Grimcleaver who is a barbarian who attacked Pagos and Mercy who is a Thokka dancer that lives with the barbarians. He also is playing Maverik who is trying to hunt down the First.

Shadow is in charge of the "big bad" in the over all storyline. Sil has a world up as well.

MystikChronicler
05-15-2011, 11:17 AM

I, for whatever reason, did not see a new post in Emporium. Shadow, dear, are you about? I wasn't going to have Emit pass out yet so he could explain himself... maybe he can be roused? if not, it leaves me with little to post with unless you want me to play the part of the doctor.

Shadowseldil
05-17-2011, 06:59 PM
I'm sorry. It sounded as he was already going out. If you want, I can change it.

If the doctor gets there, there's a good chance he'll recognize them. You can play him. I was really expecting something to happen, though, like Pasce to suddenly wake up, or for Emit to mumble Felicity's name, or something weird.

SilntAngl5
05-19-2011, 06:35 PM
Emit can do that, if you like. Or Pasce can. I was hoping to have her sleep longer than he. I think I'll have Emit wake up (maybe briefly?) If the doctor recognizes them, and reports it, it could move our characters and get things jump started.

Monkey Kitty
06-02-2011, 01:24 PM
Gwynn probably will not do much until either the meeting is over or something disrupts the situation. So no need to wait for me to post in the meantime. I'll jump in when/if I need to. Otherwise, feel free to go on. :)

It looks like Planet Nero is the place to go, uh? Is there anything to know. I will check out the thread, but it looks a bit huge, lol.

Shadowseldil
06-23-2011, 04:22 PM
Well, there are three threads made so far that are in play. Planet Nero is the most lively of them, as it sports the most players. The world of Emporium has Silntangl and myself, but I'm sure she'd be open to having another player in it. And then there is Planet Tyyran, which so far only has me, so it hasn't really gone anywhere.

A planet deep in space and Elysia are not in play. The first will be used for certain overarching plot details, while the second is... I'm not really sure what Mattson had in mind, to be honest.

Anyway, about Nero: Here is the general cast of characters you need to know:
Barrett - First of fire and king of the southern desert kingdom of Fotia. He and Selene are romantically involved.
Jared - Aide of King Barrett's. He and Luca might have something for each other.
Selene - First of ice and queen of the northern mountain kingdom of Pagos. She and Barrett are romantically involved.
Luca - Aide of Queen Selene. She and Jared might have something for each other.
Gwenn - First of storms. She is well versed in her powers, but does not begin to understand who she is. Was once a lizard.
Angel - First of nurturing and keeper of the only orphanage in the region. She is Milson's fiance'
Milson - Soldier of Pagos in close contact with the queen. He is currently stationed at the orphanage to keep an eye on troop movements.
Grimcleaver - Barbarian lord who has recently attacked Pagos and tried to frame Fotia. Was hired by another individual.
Mercy - Thokka dancer (magical dances) who travels with Grimcleaver's barbarian band. She is pacifist, and is trying to change Grimcleaver, or at least temper him.
Maverik - The Hunter. Not a first, but comparable in terms of power. He hunts and kills firsts, and has a pretty successful track record. Last seen leaving the world for a little while.
??? - The big bad. He is the one who hired Grimcleaver to attack Pagos. His identity and motive are still unknown, however, there are suspects.

The story so far, in summery:
Barrett and Selene both awoke "from comas" on the day that the previous monarch of each respective kingdom died. They know nothing of who they are. Jared and Luca know they are Firsts. A meeting is held in Eirini, a neutral city, at which both Barrett and Selene declare they want peace. Soon after is Barrett's birthday party. He invites Queen Selene. Gwynn is found by Jared while he is getting supplies for the celebration and, like a stray puppy, she tags alone back to the palace. She becomes friends with King Barrett, who is learning that he can do strange things with fire. Queen Selene is learning the same.
Queen Selene travels to Fotia with Milson. They stop in Eirini for the night and visit Angel. Selene and Angel feel like they know each other, because they are both Firsts.
Meanwhile, Gwynn and Jared are 'attacked' by Maverik, although he only talks to them before leaving.
Back in Pagos, Grimcleaver and his band attack the city. They kill a number of guardsmen, burn and pillage some of the houses before retreating. While they attacked, they flew the flags of Fotia.
The next day, Selene and Barrett enjoy the party, although they enjoy each other's company more. They leave the party to have an intimate moment. A rider from Pagos comes with news of the attack. After a heated exchange, Selene believes that Barrett was framed. They devise a plan to lure the traitor out of hiding. They pretend to be going to war. Selene leaves, and lets Milson stay at Angel's orphanage.
During the party, Angel is assaulted by a 'god-king' and has her true nature revealed. She begins to awaken.
Several days pass. During this time, the firsts all begin to refine their powers including learning about their teleportation. Barrett is called out by one of his detractors. He is forced to reveal his ruse, and the next day both king and queen publically reveal the ruse. Gwynn gets a dog.
Later that night, Grim and Mercy are traveling into the western glaciers. They stop and meet Angel and Milson. Mercy does some dishes. While there, they are recognized by another Pagos soldier.
Word gets passed on to Barrett and Selene. They, along with Gwynn, teleport themselves into the western glaciers, where, against most probability, they actually find Grim's camp. When they move to explore, however, they find the camp empty.

That about sums it up. Did I miss anything important?

Welcome back M. :D

Jared's into history so he might know a little about Airee but he'd would think it's a legend or myth. He wouldn't see a point to tell Barrett about it since he's been advising Barrett on how to prevent future wars in Nero not "folklore."

Meteoro
06-24-2011, 09:41 PM
Yeah. The City of Airee is basically myth to everyone else. You might bring it in, but so far, no one outside of the city knows it really exists.

Sojourn
06-24-2011, 09:55 PM
Sounds good. The City of Airee could be part a fairy tale told to kids (especially told when the wars were going on, you know to give them an escape from the reality for a little while) and it'll be a shock to everyone in Nero if they someday learn that it is real. Although Selene and Barrett have no memories of their childhood so they wouldn't even know what the myth of Airee is about until Jared would tell them. Luca would think it was just a kids' story.

Shadowseldil
06-24-2011, 10:34 PM
Um... well, that's... interesting...

I doubt that Mercy would know about it. Grimcleaver would probably know the legends; he's pretty world-wise.

Thing is, though, Maverik probably would, simply because he's a god-killer from outer space (outer space compared to Nero), and if your character is a First, he's definitely going to take interest. In fact, he's currently headed back to the planet, although he probably won't make it to the surface for another day or two, so, depending on how events play out, he might be the first character your character meets.

The big bad may or may not know about it. One more thing about him that I plan on keeping secret.

Meteoro
06-25-2011, 12:09 AM

Hey Shadow,

I just realized I didn't make up the 5 provinces. I'll get to work on that (any input would be valued... I figured it could be based on different typed of magik, sort of like the guilds in Mystic... which I don't recall their names except for the Djinn and Astral Guilds).

Meteoro
06-25-2011, 12:05 PM
Hey, Angel! Good to see you :)

And if I may add my imput on your suggestion-- (take me with a grain of salt because I'm barely getting acquainted with the setting). With the two main kingdoms I noticed that their most important characteristics, on one side extreme heat and on the other, extreme cold, it could somehow being translated into fire and ice. And you know, ice is also water. So, how about a four element setting? Somehow each power could be related to the energy of each kingdom. Fire for Fotia and water for Pagos. In a way it would work for the City of Airee, with it obviously being air.

Just a thought :)

I'm pretty new around here (obviously) and I apologize in advance if that's not where I should be posting, but I didn't find any other thread that seemed more appropriate. I've been reading around this section and it seems really interesting. I'd love it if I could pop in and if there is place for a newbie in your adventure I'd be more than happy to work on a character. Probably it will take a bit for me to read all the posts and get a grip of the story so far, so a briefing would be much appreciated. Again, sorry if I shouldn't be posting here and I hope I'll be able to join you.

I'm reading through the thread and I kinda introduced the setting for my character already. So far, I've done on post, lol.

First off welcome to the boards Banshee. :)


And if I may add my imput on your suggestion-- (take me with a grain of salt because I'm barely getting acquainted with the setting). With the two main kingdoms I noticed that their most important characteristics, on one side extreme heat and on the other, extreme cold, it could somehow being translated into fire and ice. And you know, ice is also water. So, how about a four element setting? Somehow each power could be related to the energy of each kingdom. Fire for Fotia and water for Pagos. In a way it would work for the City of Airee, with it obviously being air.

Just a thought :)

Actually you almost hit the nail in the head M of how Corey and I came up with the names for the kingdoms. Barrett's the God of Fire and everything about him is associated with fire. Fotia is a word for fire in Greek. Selene's the Goddess of Ice and everything associated with her is ice related. Pagos is a word for ice in Greek. Nero in Greek means water and when Fire and Ice come together they create water. Eirini means peace in Greek and we thought it was fitting for that was built after Nero's last war as a neutral meeting ground. And the mountains it is near are called Mesos which means middle in Greek, since the area is in the middle of the two kingdoms. We went with Greek words since it seemed fitting since the Crossgen First were like Greek Gods. So anyway you can feel free to have the City of Airee to be associated with air. :)

Oh and I must say I'm pleasantly surprised how many people have showed interest in joining Nero's story line. Corey and I never expected it to take off like it did at over 60+ pages.

Okay, well, I'm working on a post here, but, if you would like, you can either have the trail lead back to Eirini, following the barbarian scent backward, or else, if you really want to track the bag guy so badly, the trail will lead to a shallow rocky cave, tall enough for someone to walk into, but having only enough depth for about five people to stand in it uncomfortably. It will be completely empty. No hidden doors, no other clues; completely empty.

Gwynn's great, there's no way Barrett could throw her out on the streets.

Looking forward to seeing what you have planned for your character M.

And yeah Barrett doesn't like being told what to do, so he isn't going to listen to Jared tell him not remain close with Selene.

That's okay. They might find it more readily believable after my next scene.

Mh mh ha ha ha ha ha; AH ha ha ha ha ha; AH HA HA HA HA!



Um...

Although, since I'm not the GM, I should probably ask permission first, but that would ruin the surprise...
I could just do it, and then edit it out if it is not approved...
What do you think?

Optimus Prime
06-30-2011, 08:17 PM
You got me curious, go ahead and post it. ;)

Although the more Jen and I think of it, Barrett and Selene's powers pretty much cancel each other out. If they were to get in a big fight and attacked each other, they would most likely create a flood. Fire melts ice after all.

Yes feel free to post your idea Shadow.

Luca and Jared can "attempt" to do what the woman warned them about but Selene and Barrett aren't going to care what some mystery woman said.

FYI: Niles isn't the traitor but he does believe that Coucilor Geoffers was right that Selene isn't acting in the best interests of Pagos because of her feelings for Barrett. So he decided to enact a law that would overthrow her. In his mind he is doing what is best for Pagos. Although in reality he's made things much worse.

As I keep reading through the thread, I'm by page 37 now, I wanted to finally bring up front my character. Give me a little chance to make him interact with the main story, but for now, if you like, other Firsts might be able to get a soft sense of him. Something vague, but enough to make him being connected with the other Gods.

Can't wait to see what you have planned for him M. :)

Corey and I are thinking that since Nero's thread is getting so large in size, we might close it to start a new one. Have the current thread be a part one (possibly title "Planet Nero: Rise of the Gods") and open a new thread to continue the story. Not sure what to call the new thread but it's an idea we wanted to run by the other players first. So what does everyone think?

If the current story is reaching into a natural ending, then it would make sense to start a "new book". If the story is still flowing, I think it might just complicate things a bit if someone wants to read the entire story. I'm still a little behind with my reading, I'm up to page 39 as we speak, so I really don't know how things are going, this is just my 2 cents :)

Meteoro
07-03-2011, 06:59 PM
Oh, I also have a question. I was checking this entire OOC thread and I noticed that Matts was leading the entire setting and approving planets and such, since he doesn't seem to be around, should I ask you guys about creating a new planet?

Prometeo (Gerald) wants back into the setting of Crossgen (it also helps him practice his English), but he has trouble following fast paced storylines, so, we agreed on creating a storyline for the two of us. Anyone could join, as long as it is kept slow paced :)

So, we already planned our main characters and the basics of the planet. What do we do?

Shadowseldil
07-03-2011, 07:10 PM
I'd say just post it.

It's become more of a community effort during Mattson's hiatus. Hence my over-arching story with the unnamed "god-king."

I'm in favour of splitting the thread into another part, if I may have the privilege of closing the act. What I have planned would be a good turning point in the story, I think. However, the prerequisite is that Barrett and Selene have to be separate from each other's presence. I plan on... well, let's keep that a secret for now. If you can find some reason to separate them, that would be great.

Optimus Prime
07-03-2011, 08:27 PM
I agree with Shadow, go ahead and create the world if you want M.

Barrett and Selene are actually separated right now. Both are in Fotia's palace but Gwynn is comforting Selene while Barrett is going to be talking to his army about the possibility of defending the kingdom against Pagos.

Sojourn
07-03-2011, 08:57 PM
I'm sure I'll enjoy reading the story you and Gerald will create. :)

Shadow Selene and Barrett can stay separated for a little while so you can post your surprise. Also Niles overthrew Selene but as soon as Lord Kenter returns he'll be the new ruler. Niles is only temporarily in charge.

I live in Michigan, Shadow. Getting decent fireworks requires crossing state lines. So I can say that I don't get to meddle with fireworks nearly as much as I wish to.

I wanted Scraps to speak in Klingon, but I couldn't find a decent translator online. So I'm taking his dialogue and running it through a google translator three or four times using random languages. I'm ending up with jibberish in random languages.

I'm not sure what that means for the character. Maybe the voice is just in Cloney's head. Or Scraps is speaking though a broken translation device or spell. Or maybe Scraps is an alien, or a pixie.

All I know for sure is that he's a dog of mystery. Whatever that means.

It's a shame Lizard Dog isn't an actual lizard-dog, Cloney gets along with lizard-things. His lawyer is a member of a lizard race called Saurians.
