Midnight Castle (Ded. L.Lit.)

I only want 4-6 people in this RP, including myself. So if we hit 6, sorry, but no more.
 
 
Story
This story takes place in a land ruled by a single kingdom and a single king. This land was once bright and wonderful, but darkness is slowly consuming it. The darkness comes from Midnight Castle. This castle of black stone started appearing nearly three hundred years before, only once every few decades on a random midnight, remaining until just before the sun would rise. As it was there, it would spread dark mist, in which the horrible creatures living within it would be able to explore and roam. In which the horrible creatures could attack and kill. Over time, Midnight Castle appeared more and more often, its mist spreading just a few feet further. But suddenly, it has picked up the pace a great deal, and nearly doubled the distance. Midnight castle appeared 10 times in a single month. There had been plenty of attempts to figure out Midnight Castle. Many attempts to enter and/or destroy/stop it. It is calculated that the castle only needs appear seven more times, before entire cities -important and big cities- will be consumed.
 
The king has decided to make one last attempt, sending the man he trusts most with the job: Bronze Goldenscale. Bronze now waits in a tavern in the late morning, where his team will meet him. Once they've all met, they'll be traveling to Midnight Castle. They will enter it. And they will stop it, or die trying.
 
 
Rules - DO NOT JOIN THIS RP IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED TO KEEP THE RULES!
1. Be dedicated. If you cannot be on and post AT LEAST once every other day, don't join. If you'll be gone for more than a day, warn us beforehand. If you do not want to continue with the RP, or if it seems to be dying and you're only waiting on someone else to post something for your character to act on, LET ME KNOW! The goal is to try to keep this thing alive, not let it die.
 
2. Keep the posting limit. If you have only one character, you get two posts at most in one day. For any additional characters, add 1 post per character to your limit.
 
3. Be reasonably literate. I'm not asking you to send everything through spell checker, but do please be as literate as you can. That means 'their', 'they're' and 'there' all mean different things, just like 'son' and 'sun' or 'hole' and 'whole'. I may just start correcting you, which could get annoying.
 
4. NO ONE-LINERS! I want AT LEAST two full lines as often as you can give them. If you can't at least give more than just one line, don't post until you can, okay? Really, it's not hard to add detail or thoughts. And I consider the following to be a one-liner too, no matter how long it is: '"Yes, I'll take care of everything from here. You just get some rest, okay Laura? I've got everything under control."' I consider a post of ONLY dialog to be something almost as annoying as one-liners. Add detail! Like this: '"Yes," He clapped his hands together, "I'll take everything from here." He gave a nod toward Laura, "You just get some rest, okay Laura? I've got  everything under control."' Okay, I think I'm done with my little rant. Back to the rules.
 
5. No power-playing without permission. Do not control another person's character's reaction, and if I seem to break this rule, it's because I'm making a small exception for story-control reasons because I hate to power-play anyway.
 
6. You can have 1-2 characters. Any additional characters you must ask for before you can make them.
 
7. You must use the skeleton created for your species, and you must use a species listed. If you want to use something else, bring it up with me first.
 
8. Stick to the story and follow my lead. If you have any ideas or suggestions, discuss them with me before actually bringing them up in the RP itself.
 
9. Have fun. Respect your fellow players, uphold the rules, let me know if there are any problems, and write because it's fun.
 
 
Please wait to post (except in calling a place) until after I say it's okay to post characters. I'll be adding skeletons and the list of creatures as well as additional information on the team shortly.

Creatures (Each Creature has its own skeleton.)
Human/Mage/Witch - Average lifespan of 60-80 years. Males are considered of age at 17, while females are considered of age at 16. All humans, with training, may be able to become a witch or mage. Mages have magic triggered by verbal spells combined with the speaker carrying magical objects. Witches had magic triggered by mixes, potions, and spells that require markings or sacrifice. A witch CAN be male.
Species: (Human, Mage, or Witch. Even if the latter two are technically still human.)
Name: (First and last.)
Age: (Of age or older.)
Gender: (Male or female.)
Appearance: (Please try to be descriptive and be sure to include height and build.)
Clothing:
Weapons: (If they're a mage, include the magical objects they carry.)
Position: (One of the listed positions.)
Bio: (At least give a little background on them and how they ended up in this mission instead of safe at home.)
 
Elemental - Average lifespan of 100-120 years. Males are considered of age at 21, while females are considered of age at 19. All elementals control at least one element, although second elements are rare, but not unheard of. The three primary clans are the Mist Clan of water and air elementals, the Steam Clan of water and fire elementals, and the Lava Clan of fire and earth elementals. They are like humans, only standing at 2-3 feet tall. They are perfectly proportionate to their size, unlike dwarves or any beings traditionally are at that height. The three primary clans slip in and out of war with each other. Most elementals dislike all other species, and will avoid civilization. They only really appear in towns or cities when they send a representative for political reasons or trade.
Species: (Fire, Water, Air, Earth Elemental, or two of the elements if they contol two.)
Name: (Usually named something based on their Clan element(s).)
Age: (Of age or older.)
Gender: (Male or Female.)
Appearance: (Remember Elementals are almost always 2-3 feet tall and are completely proportionate, so you can describe them like a human only on a smaller scale.)
Clothing: (They tend to wear tunics with colors matching their Clan element(s).)
Weapons: (Elementals rarely use bladed weapons bigger than knives.)
Position: (One of the listed positions.)
Bio: (At least give a little background on them and how they ended up in this mission instead of safe at home.)
 
Dragon - Average lifespan of 150-170 years, although those of strong blood have lived over 700 years. Both genders are considered of age depending on certain signs, anywhere from age 15 to age 30. All dragons have three forms -human(with a tail), scaly(human but covered in scales with sharp teeth and claws), and dragon(which range in size from the size of a large horse to the size of a blue whale, although larger dragons are rarer)-. The dragons are a race that lives of its own rules, although they ultimately follow the king. The dragons look to the Goldenscale family as their rulers, but there are several members of that family, and not all of them are still connected with the rest.
Species: (Just Dragon.)
Name: (Dragons like names that are words. Last names always end in scale.)
Age: (Of age or older, preferably not too old.)
Gender: (Male or female.)
Appearance: (Include a human appearance and a dragon appearance.)
Clothing: (Self explained.)
Weapons: (Dragons are more commonly fond of using their own strength. Carrying many weapons is considered cowardly.)
Position: (One of the listed positions.)
Bio: (At least give a little background on them and how they ended up in this mission instead of safe at home.)
 
Tame Wolf - Average lifespan of 30 years. Both genders are considered of age at 3 to 6 years, depending on the individual wolf. Tame wolves are capable of human speech, their voices sounding just as normal as any human being. Tame Wolves live similar to regular wolves, with packs although on a larger scale than traditional wolf packs. They are larger than regular wolves, averagely the size of a quarter horse, but sometimes even bigger, known to get as big as small dragons. Tame wolves are extremely rare, in this race, but not unheard of. They don't often travel into civilization, and when they do, they tend to cause people quite a scare. They wear special human-placed collars to mark that the king approves of them and to keep them from being hunted or harmed. These collars don't stop poachers, which happen to be a big problem for them. There are actually only four packs approved by the king: Alpha, Fur, Swish, and Claw. Any lone wolves would have had to go get approved on their own without the support of their pack.
Species: (Just Tame Wolf.) 
Name: (First name then a pack name.)
Age: (Of age or older.)
Gender: (Male or female.)
Appearance: (Include the basics, such as their fur pattern and eye color.)
Rank: (Don't need specific ranking, just say they were pretty high, pretty low, or average. Could be a loner too, but it's gotta be for good reason and remember it's rare.)
Position: (One of the listed positions.)
Bio: (At least give a little background on them and how they ended up in this mission instead of safe at home.)
 
Vampire - Can live forever. Of age is the same as with humans. Must have at least a cup of blood once a week to survive, and they are strong and fast, but not invulnerable. They can be killed by other means than just stakes or fire or anything like that. They do die in the sunlight, but it's slow and painful burning. Wearing a cloak and keeping their skin covered will protect them from burning in the sun. Vampires are often feared and shunned although by law a vampire cannot be hunted if they cannot be specifically linked to the recent death of a human.
Species: (Just a Vampire.)
Name: (First and last.)
Age: (Of age or older, please not too old.)
Gender: (Male or female.)
Appearance: (You know this by now.)
Clothing: (nclude a cloak and means for ALL their skin to be protected from sunlight.)
Weapons: (Considering their strength, this is optional.)
Position: (One of the listed positions.)
Bio: (At least give a little background on them and how they ended up on this mission instead of safe at home.)
 
Fairy - Average lifespan of 90-110 years. Considered of age at 17. Have wings like birds or bugs, depending on the fairy, with weak magic tied to light.Fairies apply to males or females. They are human-sized, but they can shrink themselves for short periods of time. It's not uncommon for fairies to go temporarily mute if they push themselves too much and use too much energy. Fairies are rare in crowded places, usually the timid type, but they are more common than elementals or tame wolves within civilization. Many believe them to provide good luck.
Species: (Just fairy.)
Name: (Think fairy names.)
Age: (17 or older.)
Gender: (Male or female.)
Appearance: (Include their wings.)
Clothing: (Self-explained.)
Weapons: (Since they must remain light so they can fly, they probably wouldn't carry many heavy weapons.)
Position: (One of the listed positions.)
Bio: (At least give a little background on them and how they ended uo on this mission instead of safe at home.)
 
Elf - Average lifespan of 130-250 years. Considered of age at 23. Known to be slender and attractive in body but now always in face with paler skin and pointed ears. The elves are just as common as humans in the world, but they are a little more in touch with nature and live longer, aging slower. They really aren't much different from humans, although there are plenty of stereotypes saying elves are stubborn and/or rude. There are a lot of offensive elf jokes as well.
Species: (Just elf.)
Name: (Elf names.)
Age: (23 or older.)
Gender: (Male or female.)
Appearance: (You know this. Elves prefer long hair.)
Clothing: (You know this too.)
Weapons: (You know this.)
Position: (One of the listed positions.)
Bio: (At least give a little background on them and how they ended up on this mission instead of safe at home.)

Species: Dragon.
 
Name: Bronze Goldenscale.
 
Age: 57.
 
Gender: Male.
 
Appearance: In his human form, he stands at 6'5", with broad shoulders and traditional dark skin. His hair is messy and dirty blonde, hanging in his eyes and of a length that causes him to constantly push his hair back. His eyes a deep, electric blue, which is rare for dragons, and his features are considered rugged and sometimes intimidating. He caries a rough edge, and he has a slight beard of matching color to his hair, which is another rare trait in dragons. In his dragon form, he's extremely large, although considered a runt in his immediate family. His scales are, of course, golden, but they have darker scales streaked in, as well as black patches under his wings and on the tip of his tail. He has quite a few scars scattered about. One on his face and one on his left arm(front left leg in dragon form), as well as several others. He is strongly built, and he works out a lot to get that way.
 
Clothing: He wears casual clothing, hardly expected of a guard for the king or of someone about to travel to Midnight Castle. His boots are comfortable, and he wears loose, long-sleeved button up shirts which sometimes go unbuttoned.
 
Weapons: Unlike most dragons, Bronze relies on weapons rather than his own skills. He carries a pair of swords on his belt with a bow and quiver of arrows on his back. He carries a few knives with him as well.
 
Position: Leader. 
 
Bio: Bronze isn't in touch with the rest of his family. He left them a long time ago, as well as their ways. He dislikes waving his last name around. Actually, Bronze has been in complete human form for over 20 years. When he chose to turn his family away, he went to the king and became a guard of the king's city. One thing led to another, and he has served as the king's personal guard for nearly 15 years now.
 
--------------------
 
Species: Tame Wolf.
 
Name: Stone Alpha.
 
Age: 11.
 
Gender: Female.
 
Appearance: Stone is larger by the standards of tame wolves. She has gray fur all over, with white patches on her chest and tail as well as her ears. On the right side of her face she has a big scar going over her eyes. She's a little under weight, but she still looks strong, and she is.
 
Rank: Loner. She was once in line to become an alpha.
 
Position: Knowledge.
 
Bio: Quite simply, when Stone was 3 years old, she and her sister were taking a test to become of age. But things went bad, and poachers interrupted. The details aren't clear, but Stone never returned home. She left and was never seen or heard from by her pack again. She had a collar already. She's been a loner since then, and has gotten into several situations in which she was nearly dead, but she always makes it out in the end. She has always been a little malnourished, but always survived. She knows the forest because of all her exploring, and she has studied deep into Midnight Castle. 
 
--------------------
 
Species: Water-Air Elemental.
 
Name: Mist of the Mist Clan.
 
Age: 21.
 
Gender: Male. 
 
Appearance: Mist is abnormally tall for elementals, standing at 4' tall. He has short black hair and misty colored eyes. His skin is really pale, and his build is boyish. He generally has an unhealthy and somewhat stretched look to him. Covering his entire back he has a very detailed tattoo of a waterfall with mist swirling around it. He also has tattoos on his right cheek of rain drops.
 
Clothing: Mist commonly wears simple pants, custom boots, and blue tunics.
 
Weapons: He carries several small throwing knives as well as a bow he carved himself.
 
Position: Stealth.
 
Bio: Mist is son of the Clan leader in the Mist Clan. His father has sent him on this mission to prove himself. He has just come of age. His childhood has been rough. He's always struggled to get approval.

Species: Elf 

Name: Vendethiel (Ven or V for short)

Age: 24

Gender: Female

Appearance: Ven has wavy, waist-length that is a rich black color. Her skin is moonlight pale and her deep violet eyes make her stand out from the rest. She wears her hair back in a long braid and is very pretty over all. Her features are soft and gentle, angelic almost. Even though Ven is 24, her slow aging makes her look in her mid to late teens. She has a silver loop peirced near the tip of her left ear.

Clothing: Emerald green tunic and dark brown leggings. Soft leather boots and light chainmail under her clothes. Ven has her families' crest on a silver chain.

Weapons: Handcrafted Elvin bow given to her by her father, woven quiver, and a set of throwing knives.

Position: Hunter 

Bio: Ven comes from a long line of powerful Elves. While her family isn't royal, they are nobels. Her parents weren't very attractive folk so they were surprised when her and her sister were born beautiful. She has met Bronze a few times before, always with her father and has never gotten to know him much.

(Goku: I asked you to call a position. Both the hunters have been called before you, You cannot have an Elf hunter.

Edit with Add-on: Also, your character needs more detail than that. Some things I'm willing to leave to be developed, but her appearance and bio are lacking. Also, unlimited arrows is not permitted, sorry.)

Species:Tame Wolf 
 
Name: Fox Fur
 
Age: 9
 
Gender:Female
 
Appearance: Fox is about the size of a quarter horse with a thin body mass. Comapred to her family, she has a longer muzzel and smaller teeth. The reason she is called fox is for her coat. This is a reddish gold in color with the underparts bing pale white. Her tail is matches the top fur with a black tip. Her whole coat is fluffy, keeping her and anyone that lays against her warm and also makes her look bigger then she is. Fox's eyes are a soft Ember that always seem to be brighter in the dark. The collar that was bestowed to her by the king is a deep black leather with a single ruby embed in the center of the collar.
 
Rank: Average
 
Position: Hunter
 
Bio: Fox is an odd looking wolf and it has hurt her social life in the pack. Her family basically deals with her, only finding pride in that she is one of the best hunters in the pack. Fox's keen eye and smell allows her to track animals that have passed through the area a day ago. When the king sent for a wolf to go on the quest, her leader was glad to send her along. Fox is suspicous if he actually wants her to succeed in the quest or just wants her to go hoping she will die. It isn't a big secret of the monsters that come out of the mist and that is what scares Fox the most. Still, she is loyal to the king and knows the out come if the mist makes it across the whole land.

(Goku: as I said, your character needs more detail. And just to be clear it's Fighter not warrior. I did also mention that the unlimited arrows is not accepted. I'm sorry, but I need you to try again. I want at least two FULL lines for each appearance and bio. Appearance needs to include her build, attractiveness, where are the scars, wears a rose where, etc.I'd also like for that to be made a bit more clear, you're not making a list, you're fully describing someone in a paragraph. Sorry I'm making you tweak!
 
Ahhoy: Your character is accepted as-is.
 
Alice: I forgot to mention your character is fine as well.)
