The princess is dying. The once beautiful ruler of our land has become nothing more than skin and bones, broken and bruised, sunken and sad. There is a root from a flower indigenous to the neighboring kingdom, and an herb found only in the far jungle when boiled together in a tea, can cure her. A group of the most loyal subjects are sent on this journey to collect these items. The neighboring kingdom is far away past monster infested lands and terrifying terrain that this brave group must survive. The jungle is nearer, but with patches of deadly quicksand, monsters, and the ever present possibility of getting lost and starving to death, there is much that can happen.
Some shall take on this quest. Less shall survive to tell the tale.
I hope A LOT of people join. You may have a max of THREE characters. Some people MUST DIE. Once this story begins, no more may join. Keep it somewhat even -- more men than women if it's not equal. Normal rules apply.
Skill: (warrior, magi, basket weaver, anything really, etc.)
Reason for participation in quest:
Additional Info: (optional)
Skill: She's the best archer in the fleet.
Reason: She is very close with the princess, having taught her archery, and she knows the kingdom will not survive if the princess dies before marrying a prince so she and he can rule the kingdom as king and queen.
Personality: She's an overly protective hard a**. She knows what must be done, and she knows how to do it and she can't stand when people stray from the plan because she feels it's her duty to protect everyone and she would willingly give her life to save another's unless it's an enemy in which case she can sometimes go a little overboard.
Bio: She was an orphan as a child, taken in by the archer's guild after she was caught fooling around with a slingshot, and hitting every mark spot on. She's four years older than the Princess and at the time the King and Queen decided it was a good idea for Kerli and Princess Enya to become friends and Kerli be her teacher when Princess Enya was old enough to be taught.
Other: She is unfamiliar with praise and love from others to herself though she loves and praises others wholeheartedly. When she is praised she gets uncomfortable and if someone fell in love with her she wouldn't know what to do or how to act.
((Can I make two characters? This seems like a really cool idea :P))
(( Could I join? Sounds awesome! ))
Name: Edron Age: 39 Gender: Male Skill: Amazing survival artist; decent with a sword Appearance: Erdon is heavily built and stands at 6'3. He has black wispy hair with long bangs over his forehead, and a thick goatee. Personality: Erdon strongly overestimates his already stunning ability, claiming himself to be godlike. He is very cocky and overconfident, and tried to do everything independently. If not, he tries to be the leader. Bio: Erdon was once a soldier, and in a battle, he was wounded and left for dead. But still, he made it back to the kingdom in weeks, surviving on stream water and food he found on his journey. Other: Erdon longs to earn the Princess's hand, and believes that if he rescues her, she will fall for him.
((Sorry bout the format. I'll use a computer for my next character :/))
Skill: A better archer than most
Reason: Procutteus wants to prove himself, for many think he is too soft, or a coward, and cannot complete the journey.
Appearance: Procutteus is extremely handsome, to the point where people like Edron make fun of him for it. He stands about 6'1 with a lean build with a bit of muscle. He is tan and has chestnut curls upon his head, with bangs that reach the tops of his eyes. He has sea green eyes.
Personality: Procutteus is very courageous and brave, but has never had a chance to prove it. He tries to be friendly, but tends to be a bit emotional. He is extremly loyal, and is a perfect example of a follower. He will follow orders, and won't disobey, depending on who's giving the orders.
Bio: Procutteus taught himself to arch, and is not part of the archers' guild. As a boy, he had wonderful parents who lived on the edge of the woods in a cabin. When he was 13, his parents were killed by an invading bear, and he killed it with his father's bow, then fled, worrying that there might be more. Ever since, he has been training himself in the field of archery, but hasn't quite become a master. He longs for a good teacher to finish his training.
Other: Procutteus looks up to most people, and often underestimates his own ability. He is very modest, to the point where he doesnt want to except his accomplishments.
(( Bump :) Wondering if I can join, I don't wanna be rude ))
((Yeah you can join! :P we need more people O.o))
Name: Epoline Johnston
Skill: Despite her young age, she is one of the toughest and most skilled warriors.
Reason: Epoline was beaten by her father, and her mother passed away. She was set out on the streets as an orphan. The princess took her in and nutured her to full health. Because of this, she now feels that it is an honor, and her rightful duty to protect the princess.
Personality: Epoline appears meek at first glance, but she is very strong-willed. She is extremely brave, and will take a bullet (figuratively speaking since I presume there aren't guns in this time period) for anyone. This also makes her very loyal, especially to the princess and her friends. She has a kind heart, and will do just about anything for anyone. At times, this may make her appear careless.
Appearance: Epoline has straight black hair that falls to her waist. It is most often in a ponytail or braid. Her skin is naturally tanned. Her is tall and lean, around 5'-11" in height. Her eyes are a striking hazel color, a mixture of forest green and a chocolatey brown. Her facial features are rather petite, especially when compared to her size. Her muscles are extremely noticeable, though most who fight her think of her as weak.
Additional Info: Epoline accepts duty and work without complaint. She is always willing to work, and will lay her life on the line if it means benefitting another.
(( I could make another character if needed ))
((I think we're gonna need more O.o I made two))
((This is my second charrie))
Skill: Thief/Pickpocket -- handy with a dagger
Reason: He chose this as punishment rather than rot in a jail cell
Appearance: He's 5'10 with chin length hair. When he's clean his hair is the purest white you've ever seen, but when it's dirty it's an ugly brown-gray mixture. Often he's dirty. He's got gray eyes that in the sunlight look silver.
Personality: He's a hothead. He's selfish. He's arrogant and overconfident. He belives he's got a shot with the lasses but in reality he doesn't.
Bio: He grew up as a peasant in the kingdom, but not like the others. His family hated the rulers of the land and therefore they lived lives of the outcast. It was difficult for Bink to blend in with the commoners due to his odd appearance at such a young age. He fit in better with the thieves of the kingdom, and they took him in and trained him well.
((I forgot Kerli's appearance))
Kerli Appearance: Sadly, Kerli is a tiny girl at only 5'. But that's probably the reason she's still alive. She's too short to be shot and can easily shoot the enemy. She's got strawberry blonde hair cut short to her earlobes and slicked back to stay out of her face. She's a tiny ball of muscle, she's got thick arms and legs, and a sturdy stomach. She wears thick and heavy leather because it's the lightest and best protection she has. Chainmail armour is to heavy to carry around on this journey.
((We could have a lot of neutral characters who don't have skellies and aren't controlled by anyone. Just extras, ya know? :P))
That sounds like a good idea but they would still need partial skellies so if we have to battle a giant or something we at least know how they can help... right?
For some of them, yeah, but for some, we could just say something like: "Kerli stopped the group but one man on the end failed to halt before his foot slid into the deadly quicksand, and in seconds, he was gone." Something like that :P
Yeah :) but you're right. We should at least name some other characters who aren't owned by any specific person :)
