[The Fall of the House of Aalbaich] OOC, Rules and Questions
« on: August 22, 2004, 05:32:35 AM »
A few setting notes:

Magic - The art os magic is restricted to the adepts of the Imperial Wizardry. Unless you are a member of the Imperial Wizardry, PC magic is restricted to the casting of cantrips, or Low Sorcery. I apologize that the Low Sorcery Thread is still incomplete.

Technology - Moderate, but no gunpowder, or complex machinery. The low arts of alchemy, and enchantment have supplanted many of the roles of technology. Arms are armor are advanced, plate mail and such.

Clerics - There are a variety of gods, If you wish to play a cleric, let me know and we will hammer something out.

Race - Humans are prefered, but half breeds such as half-elves, half-dwarves, and half-orcs are welcome.

Starting Character Information:
Each character begins in the city of Lynnwall, a sizeable community located on the upper Sperion River, at the feet of the Leager of Tresserhorn. The Leager is a chain of mountains that seperates the insular Kingdom of Tresserhorn, ruled by the 'Keeper' from the Throne of Bone, from the Midlands, ruled by Queen Phoenix and the Queen's Guard. Lynnwall guards one of the few passes through the Leager, though no serious effort has been made to invade from either nation.

Lynnwall is a 'modern' city with stone architecture, tiled roofs, and the features and ammenaties of an Italian City state such as Genoa or Milan. There are a number of royal lines in the city, but the dominant one is the Lynn family, for whom the original fortress was named, and later the city. Duke Ty D'Lynn is a close companion of the Queen, and is much in her favor. The Aalbaichs are a scion family of Tresserhorn, stewards of the Keeper.

It is closing in on winter, and the pass will be closing up in the forseable future. Until then, the city bustles with what trade comes through the pass, and what is drawn in from the countryside to be sent down the river.

The Half-Elven city of Lindon lies to the north, the gateway to the guarded realm of Ossiriland. To the south is the great imposing bulk of Deepwood, a place of banditry and petty criminals as well as general evil and nastiness. West is the river to several smaller cites and the capital of Fenost.

I expect the rules of good roleplaying to be respected

1. I have the final authority in all matters.
2. If there is a city or anything else that you want to mention, dont make up a name and post it without consulting me first.
3.NO Power-gaming, god-moding, playing a sorceror character, and/or controlling/killing off/otherwise affecting mine or others' NPCs without permission
4.Dont introduce your own plot points to the story without my permission

I dont think that enforcing these rules will be necessary. I want to have fun with this, and I want everyone else to have fun as well. I borrowed a few of the rules (3 out of 4) from Michael Jotne Slayer, I hope he doesnt mind.

I also borrowed a few names from other sources.

Who wants to play?

Now that we have enough gamers, I would like everyone to PM their character concepts and pertinent information. If anyone else is interested in joining up, there is room for one more.

Once I have the character concepts I will issue everyone their marching orders, as it were, and open the thread in the Moderated forum.

I am looking forward to this.

Game On!

I may pull out of this one: I was going to play one more roleplay than what I currently am in, but now youve started this gothic space horror one, Im more interested in it than I am of this one. If I play too many at once, my posts get pretty bad, because im trying to post in so many :P Sorry ^^ Another slot is open

Thats fine. The GSH game seems to have drawn more attention than this one, and it is already under steam as it were. I might decide to drop this post as well. Might bring it up again at a later date, maybe after GSH has run its course

I submitted my character. However, I guess we are not going anywhere with them.  Pity.  I was looking forward to an Italian inspired swashbuckling sort of game.  Oh well.  

Oh well. Deep sigh. Oh well. Deep sigh. Oh well. Deep sigh. Oh well. Deep sigh. Oh well. Deep sigh. Oh well. Deep sigh. Oh well. Deep sigh. Oh well. Deep sigh. Oh well. Deep sigh. Oh well. Deep sigh.

Ehm, is this what happens to this site when you are gone in one lousy day?

I think temporarily suspended might be a better term than dropped. MoonHunter already sent in his character, and if everyone else would like to do the same, who knows, we might start this one anyway.

:throws caution to the wind:

What the hell right?

Here is the deal.

Either you and Moon can play here in the Aalbaich game, or I can reverse engineer the Cuban NPC out of the game and open up one last slot for you Captain.

Eight players in GSH is the absolute maximum.

Are you interested Captain?
