Götterdämmerung OOC

Post by 99luftballons on Fri Oct 28, 2016 5:15 pm

Here is the demigod RP that I promised a while back - based on Percy Jackson. With a few modifications naturally. The RP will start sometime late this weekend or early next week. Map of the arcane world (detailed below) will be posted as soon as it gets done. Gl Hf. If the RP has started just PM me to join.

I want to also thank Flagmouth and Sirius for helping me put this together/review the setting.

*Template for character at bottom*
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
And after that inspiring intro, here's the setting:

World:
Initial start will be in the modern world – Vienna, Austria to be exact. While most half-gods reside in a parallel arcane world, half-gods still can be found dotted across the globe. After the second world war, the European Union was formed – and the European continent decided to cooperate on a number of important issues with the arcane world. Including getting half-gods and magic users to the arcane world to allow them to control their powers.  At this point, it should be noted arcane world is a carefully guarded secret by half-gods and magic wielders. Individual Earthly governments know about this world / several locations of portals or transit points.

Arcane World (AW):
There’ll also be a parallel magic world (i.e. geographically the same) with portals in the major cities throughout the world. This parallel world was created in Vienna, in response to the gruesome witch trials in the 16th and early 17th century. Funded by the Habsburgs, this world was created through a gathering of the most powerful half-gods and magic wielders, led by Katharina von Habsburg. It is said the gods themselves helped craft this new world. In this world initially Arcane Kingdoms were established mirroring their Earthly counterparts (Arcane HRE with the same borders as the HRE, Arcane France with the same borders as France, etc.). Of course since we are talking separate dimensions, borders have changed differently.

Gods:
For the sake of allowing multiple pantheons (or custom ones), gods exist as their element (water god = all water at once, etc.). That said, gods will occasionally take human form and wander the world – and “meet” people. By using this simplification, it can be justified that Athena = Minerva = Thoth = some other god of wisdom.

Characters Creation:
The point of the Roleplay is for you to make any character you like. You choose one god from a pantheon of your choice or make one up. If you make one up, the domains are pretty open. However, don’t pick any super broad domains such as nature (instead pick wind, life, etc.) and don't pick domains that are hard to keep track of (time, space, chaos, dimensions, etc.). Other than that, your character will start with no knowledge of his/her heritage regarding the godly parent. If your character has an interesting background story, let me know. I’ll try to weave it into the setting. It is also assumed your character doesn't have any experience with his/her powers...yet. But don't worry, we'll fix that  Very Happy .

Map:
*Finally here!  cheers
Arcane Europe

Those characters look great! I believe that is almost everyone, so we'll probably start late this weekend/ early next week with the actual RP.

Hey Luft, since Flag and I had a little confusion over this setting, can you tell us a little more about it? Just so we don't get into a nasty debate over things about it.

Of course. Thanks for letting me know about the confusion.

I'm not really sure if you are referring to a specific portion of the setting or just the setting as a whole, so let me attempt to clarify.

We have our regular world - nothing has changed. The Arcane World (AW) is a parallel world geographically like in Harry Potter - except that this is where our magic users and half-gods live. It can be entered/left through portals in pretty much any major city. The AW serves as my explanation why the real world hasn't discovered magic.

As to our start - our characters will be starting in Vienna. I'm still trying to figure the exact way to bring your characters together relatively quick. So I'll explain how we start off a little later.

Hope that helps clear some of the confusion.

OK, so our characters will meet via a scholarship event. Me and Flagmauth deemed it the best way for our characters to meet up for this RP.

It's fine. This is actually the best time to join. If your friend hurries, then we don't need to come up with a reason why he/she is part of the group.

No problem. I'll wait with the continuation of the actual plot for when your friend and Helsing's character appear. Just so that everyone is onboard.

hey @Northerner, can you possibly make your text a bit larger? I have a visual impairment and it's very difficult to read your text. so if it's no trouble could you possibly make it a bit bigger?

I was mostly going to rely on using my judgement, since I don't like the extreme randomness of dice very much. In the past on the forum we've used a system of roll >= 10 is success and roll < 10 is failure. That's basically a 50% success rate, which depending on the situation doesn't make sense. I'm working on a system that is fair but also cuts down on the randomness.

In terms of fighting Jaron at least he has a presumably massive advantage in military-style combat since he has IDF training. At the moment he could probably outfight any one of us with his bare hands, a knife or a gun.

So the post with Emma explaining the HRE history is before she leads the party to the living quarters. Sorry Berry that I didn't see your post asking about the HRE until too late.

So I've got the map of Arcane Europe done (ignore the portion pertaining to Africa - it isn't done yet).

https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1Ay94icM-QjLsuJ2EnA3GfCmvpdXllsu0F5ezfTGZrnE/edit?usp=sharing

The link will also be put under my first post. Another question: would you guys like me to hand-draw a Vienna or academy map? I can try making either one up.

Since my character is from the Arcane world, should I start telling the group some things about it?
