PostSubject: Singal Roleplay Draft and Poll   Mon Dec 29, 2014 12:46 pm

I'll be away over New Year's, so I'll give you a rough draft of the roleplay I had in mind. You can think about it, discuss it and please vote on it, so  we can find out whether and if yes how to proceed with this Smile.

Here is a map of Singal with the initial distribution of power between the factions:
Purple - Eventide
Red - the Brotherhood of the same colour
Cyan - City Watch
Blue - Singalian Military
Yellow - Merchants
Green -Slavers

Map of Singal:
 

Detailed information on Singal can be found here.

The Eventide is split between pure and corrupted knights.

Pure knights - initially they have no clue that their order is actually led by a coven called the circle of thorns and are always in danger to be manipulated by the corrupted knights, but can much more openly pursue their interests and without fear of killing an ally when cutting down a criminal or a heretic. Can also rely on the local Astraean clergy.
Corrupted knights - supported by the circle of thorns and some other covens, they know who is a heretic in the order and who is not, but often find themselves in a tight spot when their hidden goals conflict with their order's official goals.

The story so far:

In his first line of action in distric 13 Varys gained a guy named Haruch for his entourage. Haruch seems to have always lived in the sewers and knows them better than anyone else the knights have met so far, though only very little is known about him and he is quite the opposite of talkative.

Some time ago, a number of captured slavers was found dead in a locked vault and a knight started to investigate the matter, most notably finding a blocked tunnel in the sewers with a seemingly movable wall showing the following symbol carved into the stone:

Drawing of the symbol:
 

Players would now pick pure or corrupted knights and try to find out about this mystery while struggling with the other factions of Singal for power or alliances and, as events unfold, struggling with each other for control of the order.

Troops and resources would be kept to a minimum. Players would usually be on their own, with their personal money (for bribes, special equipment, etc.) being kept track off. They would lead troops only on certain occasions (storming of a bandit hideout, a major fight with one of the Singalian factions), as their superiors would not give them command permanently.

I would recommend everyone to read through most of the Singal roleplay so far to get the big picture, let alone enjoy the excellent roleplaying done there by Varys, Celdiur, Azlanek and others.

When you have made up your mind, please vote on the matter and/or comment and discuss how we should proceed with this.

PS: Thanks to Haegon for devising the Lion/Eventide roleplay that inspired the structure of this draft Smile

Oh wow, I didn't expect someone would vote 'Not at all'. Would you care to explain?

I'd love to join this. I read this RP storyline ages ago and loved it. But well, it's just not going to be the same without Varys and Celdiur...

Does anyone know how to contact them?

And I want an explanation for that "not at all".

Sorry, but for the reasons I mentioned in my previous post I'm just not interested in following a fixed-scenario RP. I also prefer an open scenario, or a fixed-scenario within a larger, more open setting, and short stories don't appeal to me.
Don't take my opinion too seriously though. I was only going to join you in a support role, not actively playing or GMing.

Pity Sad I do miss your creative style.

If we actually do this, feel free to jump in at your leisure, when an appealing opportunity arises Smile

I wrote an email to Varys and Celdiur. Hopefully we'll hear from them soon.

Well, it seems we'd have four three players and a host, so that should be quite sufficient. I wrote an email to Varys and Celdiur, but since they havent responded yet I fear the addresses were outdated.

I would ask all participants to present their characters in this thread. Then I will kick things off with an opening scene that introduces the characters to the state of affairs.

I would not bother too much with counting stats and traits and whatnot beyond choosing between Blademaster (fast and agile) and Juggernaut (strong and steadfast) for your characters - everything else (social skills, knowledge, etc.) will be determined by roleplay.

I'll post something on the TW forums later, it might draw one or two more players.

And yeah, I recall many of the e-mails weren't valid.

I'll certainly follow it. The Singal Rp was amazing, even though I pretty quickly became too busy with the metagame and everything else to participate much. I guess I would feel odd playing as anyone other than Azlanek, but at the same time I wouldn't want to put a leader into the rp that would theoretically be able to call all the shots. I think it will be more enjoyable for everyone without it.

But I am seriously glad that something is being done Smile.

Guessed wrong! Now create a character!

Iskar: I'll be playing a blademaster (fast and agile) of Barclayan descent. Much like a veteran who crossed the pont with Alistair and Jocelyn. The only name that seems fitting is Sir Alerio. I'll write his history down at a later point, but I assume these are the basics you need?

Yep, that's quite sufficient for a start.

Is Alerio pure or corrupted?

If I may push you towards something, corrupted would be perfect, seeing as we have one clear pure knight in Sir Erebus and (judging from his story) a probably rather unstable corrupted knight in Sir Timbo (his story suggests he might be oscillating in his allegiance, since he was/is a healer and joined the heretics more by chance than intention).

Lacking more players (unless you want to give it another try and advertise it on the TW forums again), one for each faction and one in the middle between would be good.

Methodius here from Kingdom divided, just saw this on the POP forums. I would be certainly interested in joining if allowed.

I would play a pure knight to balance the scales i guess. As for my character info, i will go with Ser Tebbe, a knight of Barclay descent with a juggernaut build, he favors weapons that make use of his strength, as such he typically enters battle with a halberd , he additionally keeps a long sword on himself in case he encounters trouble in the smaller alleyways of Singal.

Hope i'm not too late to join and if anything needs to be added or tweaked just ask.

Just saying, a longsword is too big for the alleyways of Singal Wink

But please don't change anything, it will be very fun to see Ser Tebbe cursing in anger as his longsword gets stuck in the walls

Nice one. Welcome greenman Smile

I'll kick things off later today with an opening post in the Singal section.

PS: Everybody should be able to read the Singal roleplay so far. If not, please notify me.

Alright, there we go. I restuctured the old Singal board a bit to fit our needs.

The Eventide Endeavours contain all the previous roleplay done by the Eventide and after the first few opening posts you can consider most of it common knowledge.

Our current roleplay will take place in the Secrets of Singal board I set up, so as not to mess things up with the old topics.

Haha i thought it might be the case but i just couldn't picture a large man in plate mail walking around with a short sword. Tebbe shares my thoughts, so we'l have see how many walls he'l have to catch before getting a smarter weapon lol.

I havent had time to look through whats been going on just yet, but would you welcome the return of Celdiur to the RP?

I'd honestly thought this site was dead and nailed shut in its coffin.

I'm glad to see that notion proven wrong.
