Through The Mirror (elsewhere) OOC

Post by LadyRaven on Sun Oct 13, 2013 8:28 am

Malthinos is a project I've been working on for a few years and it has some specific rules and regs that you need to be aware of in case of any mix-ups or misunderstandings.  If you want to add anything extra, I'd be happy to see how it fits.  Above anything, enjoy!
 
Religion - There is a four God system.  The God of the skies. Nuri.  The Goddess of the land.  Miah.  The God of the sea.  Crun.  The God of the afterlife.  Saff.  There are temples dotted about the city and across Malthinos devoted to them.
 
Flora - This is much the same as Earth, but some have different names.  These will be posted in brackets where needed.
 
Fawna - Once again, there are several animals that are the same as Earth, but there are many different ones too.  There is a breed of large cat not unlike lions, but they have the stripes and some have the spots of tigers and leopards.  There is no small domestic breed.  These are called Fallum (single) Fallumy (plural).  In addition, there are also races and breeds of large dog about the size of a black bear.  They are known as Butan.  There are general cattle breeds, cows, sheep, pigs etc.  Rats and other rodents are commonly referred to as Raffle.  Certain species of bird are closer to their dinosaur ancestors and are just as big.  This includes certain species of insect.  Butterflies are often used as light transport.  Dragonflies are guarding creatures.  Any others will be listed in brackets as and when needed.
 
Currency - Lower currency is primarily iron coins, with silver and gold being of a higher denotation and traded in ingots rather than coin.  There is no paper or plastic money.  Trade is also done in livestock and grain and the odd dragon scale if possible.
 
Language - Primarily common, but Elven or Drow dependant on who in the city one trades with.
 
Social - Crime is rare as the punishment is severe.  Murder, rape and molestation of children are punishable by death.  A long drop from the city walls.  Thieves could lose their fingers to the Queen's blade depending on the value of the item/s stolen.  Respects and tributes are given annually to the Gods by way of festivals, rituals and rites.  Respects and tributes can range from caught fish and corals, jewels, grain and livestock to betrothals of youths, weddings, banquets.  Sacrifice is only accepted during times of war.
 
People - There are five definitive races.  Elven, Dragon, Human, Centaur, Fairy.  More can be added on a case by case basis.

Ok, I've been asked to put up some additional info for players and expand on a few things.  If I miss anything out or something doesn't make sense, let me know and I'll correct it.  Also, as there may be several players at a time and perhaps a few different stories happening, I have asked in the main intro that you create a mark between yourself and your partner so that posts don't get mixed up or people left behind.  The main interaction points in Serin will be the palace in which case, I will implement a post limit and possible queue so that folk don't get confused or left behind.  Also, if you could post your specific mark here so that others can see and understand it.  You can use pictorials if you wish, but nothing too large please.  If players need anything else, call for the narrator by using this - #Narrator# at the start of your post.  Beyond that, general site rules apply.

The five main races, Elven, Dragon, Human, Centaur and Fairy.  There are subdivisions of some races and their general perceived ethos.

Elven -
Ariel - These are considered the purest of the race and the first true Elves.  They can be aloof and proud, but they take consideration for others in their care.
Tree - These are the forest Elves.  They don't generally mix with outsiders and prefer their privacy in the forests.
Common - These are a diluted race of Ariel.  They are a mix of Elven and Human generally and most have lost their wings, but they have gained knowledge and ability in magic to compensate.
Drow - These are the Underworld Elven.  Most commonly perceived as thieves and murderers, mercenaries and general chaos makers.  They are feared for their warrior skills and generally avoided.

Fairy -
Pixie - These are the most common of the fairy race.  They are mischievous and love to play pranks, but they dote on children and will often lay down their lives to protect them.
Gnome - These are the miners.  Their short stature makes them perfect for underground work and they love it.  They take great pride in their work and their history and are greatly respected by the general populace.
Imp - Imps are dangerous and feral.  They often haunt dark corners and though their general prey is Raffle, they have been known to take on Butan from time to time and certainly the odd person who is caught unawares.
Winged - These are what you would consider a real fairy.  They are about the size of a small finch on Earth and can often be found fluttering around ponds and streams collecting nectar.  But beware, they have a nasty bite if you can catch one.

Dragon - The subdivisions of the dragons follow in nature to the four elements.
Water - These live in and around the oceans.
Air - These are the flyers with large membrane wings and are often considered the most common and recognisable.
Fire - These dragons live within the fire mountains and very rarely leave their volcanic homes.  They are the fire breathers.
Earth - These dragons look and act more like lizards or snakes.  They protect the forests and vast savannahs and are generally left alone.

The laws of Malthinos are simple as explained in my previous post, but are presided over by the Queen and possible her brother if needed.  She is judge and jury and sometimes executioner.  The accused will have the chance to plead their case and if they can't, they can employ a member of the royal court to act on their behalf, but the ruling is always down to the Queen.

Centaurs make up the majority of the royal guard and army, with humans and Common Elven making up the numbers as regular police.  They report directly to the Regent, the Queen's brother.

There are two main languages in Malthinos, common and Elven.  Originally, I had both languages being used, but for the sake of simplicity, I can keep it to common.

For anything else, remember #Narrator# and once again, enjoy!

Ok, the story is really getting going now, so I've left a post from the Narrator.  Independently, Questor and Dragonmaster Pyro have come up with some incredible ideas for the game and I think it would be great for them to showcase them here so we can all have a pick at them and see what we can come up with as a team.  Both ideas are great and I reckon they could come together brilliantly.  I hope you think so too Temptress and if you have any ideas to throw in too, that would be excellent.  I leave the floor to Questor and Pyro then, let's see what you got guys..

I am curious about what the guys got going. I have something too. But I don’t want to give too much away.

As of right now, our characters are completely separated and distracted by a good time. We each want our characters to show off what their strengths are, yet we still need them to grow. So we need to them in a situation where they fight so hard but accomplish so little. The party is slowly dieing down, we have a hated but respected elvish king attending, and a main character is already wondering the streets.
This would be the perfect moment to introduce the protagonist and have our characters face near defeat. My idea is that the City Serin gets attacked by a massive army. Marthur would be the first up to bat. And then Sen Rial and Anna (sorry in advance for spelling) would have there own battles in the palace, as the army would be so massive that Marthur would be overrun. I would have him kick ass through the thugs and military, but if I wouldn't be asking too much. I would love to see Marthur have and awesome battle with the dark witch (or sorceress, you know who I mean) and get kiss ass handed to him. He needs to learn his weakness is his maturity, that he has so little experience that his skills mean nothing. I see him staring death in the face, before being rescued. I don't think she should die off the bat either, please don't. I like this villain already, so seeing more intrigues me. After she goes away for what ever reason, I see the group together staring at a destroyed city. So we would have new goals, and then you guys can take it from there.

I have lots of ideas, but I won't hog the plot (only way I could think to state it). But i thought this one needed to be voiced

Maybe not having the city attacked, since it is on a floating mountain high in the sky. Was thinking about the baby dragon, having them go to save the little one and like you said try and fail for some time and have to go through ordeals to finally accomplish the mission.

Little dragon would be the key to an attack on the city by the only force capable of attacking it, the dragons. A little princess that the dragons would do anything to see returned and not harmed. That is what I have been trying to hint at.

I'm not really sure how, I'm very new to this plot so I wouldn't have the foggiest how to incorporate this idea. Yet it seems to be popular, perhaps Raven or Questor would be better to write it.

The plot is simple. A Powerful High Elf Lord wants the floating mountain and city but can't attack it because it floats high above the ground. No land army can take it. To solve the problem he tries to steal a very important dragon Egg, A royal Egg to have it hatch and control the hatching and force the Dragons of the Sea of Ice to do his bidding.and attack the mountain. That was foiled but now he is trying again.

Hey guys, most everyone i rp with is right here so I thought I'd post it here.

My car got totaled. A plow hit it and tore my tailgate apart. I survived (obviously), but if I tend to seem distant, well I am Smile But right now my life sucks with no ride, but where ever we are at I will be glad to try mt best to keep up
