String Puppets


A contest between good and evil. You choose the winner.  Shall it be the betrayed or the betrayer who conquers?

Katherine betrayed her bethrothed the night before their wedding. She turned him into the head priest, who had been searching for the “mage sacrifice” the gods so greatly desired. In fear and remorse of her actions, she fled and left Addric to hs doom.

Main Plot:
(*you can choose to be either evil or good*)
*“Good (mainly)”
You play as the vengenance filled Addric. You search out Katherine.  First, you must escape from the prison you are waiting in to be executed. Once you beat that, you must work your way to the main city.  Then, gain entrance to the castle ball, as Katherine is one of the queen’s ladys in waiting.  Once in the ball, you must continue by causing mass mayhem (but discretely! don’t want the guards on you!!) and get Katherine away from the queen.
The rest shall be a surprise (*hee, hee, hee*)

*“Evil (mainly)”
You play as Katherine.  You must run away from the old village, where you betrayed Addric, and find a job in the castle.  You start as a kitchen maid, and you work your way up to a lady in waiting.
Then, comes the night of the ball. To gain sucess on this level, you must attempt to prevent Addric from causing the mass mayhem. The rest, well, same as above (*hee, hee, hee*)

Addric: his powers are “puppet” powers. he can control people for limited amounts of time

Katherine: has “ghost” powers. can move things telepathically and transport herself short distances.

Guards: quite dumb actually. for Katherine, she needs to order their every move. for Addric, they are tougher to fool.

My notes: i’m still not too good at these plot things, so be honest, but know im trying to learn! sorry if it completely stinks…

Well, not sure if you really understand the whole "roleplaying" aspect of this- roleplaying is generally done in groups, with all the players playing a long-standing character.
But anyway... It isn't *that* bad, just needs more substance to it. Why did Katherine betray Addric? Does she hate him? What does the title "String Puppets" have to do with it (besides Addric's powers)? I enjoy your take on magic, though- everyone has a specific power.
So, needs improvement, but not *totally* unsalvageable.

CP is right - it's actually not a bad idea but it does need fleshing out and you need to find some way to include a group of player characters

Thought - either of the main protagonists may need a little help

Not brilliant but shows promise

This is indeed just the Prologue to a plot but for unknown reason I kinda like it. So I'm gonna give it 2.5.

The Candle-Eyed Man

       By: Murometz

The third son of a candle-maker, and secretly a spy, Tsiao Fong Wei betrayed his family, clan, and town to the merciless Qongg Dynasty, causing the deaths of his own family members. He survived to an old age hiding out in the country side and keeping a low profile. One day however, the “Paper Knife” finally found Tsiao Fong Wei , and exacted his revenge on behalf of the folk, dead and tortured.

After a furious struggle, the “Paper Knife” plunged twin burning candles into the eyes of the traitorous old man and laughed, as Tsiao Fong Wei howled in dismay and pain. Some say Tsiao Fong Wei died that day. Others say that the old man somehow escaped despite his sudden anguish and utter blindness.

The truth is lost to time.

But to this day the children of the Red-Ridge County towns and villages are told by their parents to always beware twin lights in the darkness and to never venture into the woods at night, and to keep an ear open for the Groaning Ghost, for somewhere out there Tsiao Fong Wei the Traitor, now a vengeful spirit, stumbles about the darkness moaning and wailing, candles still sticking forth from out of his otherwise empty eye sockets. And though the candles plunged into his eyes all those years ago were a’flame going in, now the wax protuberances are somehow lit from within and burn without, and two flickering lights in the darkness, always portend his coming.
