View Full Version : Perched Upon The Tides Of Darkness (putd)

Right then, Start it up OnSilentWings :)

Alright then everyone as you can guess we'll be starting a new RPG here at AG...Its title is Perched Upon The Tides Of Darkness and its a Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy game...well with the basics said I'll go ahead and post the Back story for the wrold and where all of you would fit in...If your interested in playing this game then simply reply here and after we get a few people onboard we'll start

-=The world of Gaia was long a peaceful place...it was the home to many a great nation and watched them rise and fall within the sands of time. After many ages long past these nations became massive empires. To the far brutal north lie the continent of Valan...to the east lay the holy lands Of Saeruen...in the far west, a land of endless plains was the Sacaean lands and finally in the burning south like the famed island of Ssra.

It was in these great lands that time passed and with it inovation grew. In the later days of the empires the humans had built steam engines and mammoth war machines...the elves produced great airships...the dwarves their black powdered weapons and so forth. The great races of the time ushered in a golden age of prosperity and flourish...yet...all was not as it seemed.

With great power comes blindness...many of the races thought themselves better then their cousins and neighbors, they thought themselves more "pure"...more "perfect". And it was in these false visions that they rushed headlong before many more years passed...when the mighty nations of the world waged great wars against their kindred. Still though....a greater enemy was yet to emerge... After decades of ceasless warfare the people became dispirited...they thought of nothing but greed and vengence and society began to rot. Within these festering wounds on the will of the people darkness was born. Exactly one-hundred years to the day of the great wars begining a new foe was released. The Black King.

A cable of necromancers had brought it forward from the endless divide. A mighty force held beyond the barriers of life and death...they had hoped to use it to conquer, but it was themselves who were conquered in the end...for the beast had great powers unfathomed by its summoners. Within days it had subjigated them all and began raising an army from the bodies of the fallen. Indeed entire graveyards and villages rose in the Black King's name until he had an army of great preportions. But it wasn't there that he stopped...he didn't just raise the dead...he brought hundreds of his brothers across. Demons and Fiends starved for bloodshed and crys of anguish...it was with this army that the march that would determine the fate of all would begin.

The great empires at the time were too focused on their own causes to pay attention in the early days of the Black King when he could have been defeated...so they waited and waged their petty wars until it was far to late. By the time the first spear was cast in the direction of the black army it had risen from a petty horde to a sea of death, ready to wash upon the lands. In the early days of the war that followed, to be known as the "Black Reckoning", the countries were able to hold their own...they had strong borders and well seasoned armies from their own campaigns and saw these new inavders as little threat. Little did they know that each of their men that fell only bolstered the undead army. Before long it was obvious much needed to be done to halt the endless sea of foes.

On a starfilled night the leaders of the Great Nations converged in the free city of Dortor...a city of its own, filled with all races and classes...one untouched by the wars of the patron nations. It was in Dortor that a plan was struck and the great nations once again converged into one force as they had done so long ago in the past. The years that followed were the bloodiest ever known...The black army washed over the lands crushing the united forces under their feet...though the advance was slow the casualties were many. It became very clear what was to happen...by now the nations had counted their censuses...with a mere 30% of all the population accounted for they decided that drastic times would call for drastic measures. It was time to strike at the Black King himself.

Enlisting the aid of the great Dragons of the old world and the newest weapons of their own they sent a army few in numbers but high in power to the heartland of the Black Kings stronghold, Ameideus of the Sacaean plains. No one could recall the battle and there was little documentation of what went on...indeed there were no survivors saved a few men so scarred by what they saw they were left as broken shells...all that was known was that the great evil, the Black King of Ameideus, had fallen and with his death so had his army. The animated dead fell to slumber once more and the demons he called scattered about the world. The races had won the most important battle of their time...but even still they had not realized the losses.

Much of the world was scorched and infected by the darkness of the black king leaving very little land left to settle...and with so few of every race no longer could they call themselves nations...yet they made due. It has been one-hundred years since the day of the "Black Reckoning" was ended and now things have begun to go back to the way they were...though with little of their fabled technologies left the races keep on. yet, unknown to the many a great evil stirs...a nobleman in Dortor has brought together the finest necromancers in the land and seeks to become a king...one of old, one fit to sit upon a black throne.=-

...So now that the backstory has been set let me tell you how your characters would fit in. You would naturally have complete control of their doings...you can choose whatever path of life suits you...be it helping your fellow and helping to restore what once was or rather working with the darkness to bring about a new age. So then, anyone interested in this game? if enough of you join we'll have the character thread set ASAP. If you have any questions feel free to PM me or reach me via AIM at OnSilentWings3.

09-10-2004, 02:25 PM
i think an rpg would be best with not too many people. it can get confusing if there are tons of characters.

09-10-2004, 08:50 PM
umm Pm me here ok?BECUZ I will be away at skool and back now and then.
so i might forget to come here.

09-10-2004, 09:46 PM

I agree, I have to go to my moms later today. And I must say, that I can't wait forever for this to start. So, I would play before time runs out on me.

09-18-2004, 04:02 PM
hmm well.
I have been waiting a few weeks now.
Hmm well how about someone contcts Ayumi and ask her to get her dead self over here?

Mystical p-chan
09-18-2004, 04:09 PM
I'll do it!!

09-21-2004, 02:52 PM
wow.... this is taking forever.

09-22-2004, 06:58 PM
I'm not posting to join this.

But guys, give Ayumi a break ya know...she controls TWO large RPG sections. When she can get here, she'll get here. Give her time. I'll let her know people are calling for her, but I wont force her to come here fast. She was here a few days ago. But shes been off lately.

09-23-2004, 02:54 PM
where is ayumi? i think since she's gone...we should start the RG ourselves. all the people participating in it, what do u think?

09-23-2004, 05:20 PM
Ayumi will get here when she can.

And no. Speak to OnSilentWings. If he wants to start, then the rpg will start. But he owns it. So speak to him, find out what he wants to do. Ayumi actually doesn't own the rpg.

09-25-2004, 04:16 PM
hmm well that isn't a bad idea
but whatever
start it now
do it later
I don't mind either way.
But Ayumi isn't bring THAT fair
IF he/she was on the net that is
then going onto the other 2 bigs ones and leaving this one alone wasn't good

Guys, I posted her and she posted me twice saying stuff about people being assigned characters. So she has been on lately, I know that much since I was posted on Saturday or some day around that. So I don't know whats up, but she said that it was going to start very soon. Just to keep you all updated.

Isn't that nice of me? :^_^:

09-25-2004, 08:42 PM
First of all Flame Demon I am around if slightly subdued due to illness. So no there will not be any "taking over" and playing by one's own rules. I am certainly not pleased by your oppinions and obvious desire to start trouble. We recently had some trouble makers removed from the forums for disruptive behavior. Please do not place yourself in the same catagory as they.
Second,when Onsilentwings is able to start the rpg he will. He is the Manager of this thread and as soon as I hear from him (which I hope is soon) We will open the thread in AG to start the game. I will not open the thread until I am sure he is there to attend it , which is why I have not done so as of yet.
I am however very pleased by the help I have been given during my moments of health trouble by some of our more consciencious members of the forum. So three cheers to them :)

Well I hope that you get better soon Aryumi!!! :^_^:

09-27-2004, 09:48 AM
Ah I also have something to say in this matter. It's me Jack, maybe some of you recognize me in the chats...I go by Jack Serithva. Anyways, if there is room for an old timer like me, I'm ready for it. If you guys don't mind that is. I'm sure I'll contribute well.

09-27-2004, 10:04 AM
sorry ayumi, i didn't know u were sick, if i did i probably would have understood your absence. and i wasn't serious about the "taking over" issue (i like to see how people react to certain things) and i apologize for my innapropriate actions.

09-27-2004, 02:19 PM
We always have room for a good roleplayer Kento. Welcome to gaming on the forums :)
And Flame, apology accepted... Just don't let it happen again or else I may have to send a cookie ninja after you :ph34r:

09-28-2004, 09:50 AM
got it ayumi. i understand completely. and i hope u get better soon. thanks for my second chance. :^_^:

<blows the cobwebs of the thread>

just checking if anyone is still interested in it, I may contact OnSilenWings soon to see if he can get it started.

11-11-2004, 03:28 PM
Hello everyone. Honestly I'm sorry for not checking this thing I had planned on starting, to be honest I dropped out of the forum and hadn't really planned on coming back. I had forgotten about this little thing completely...until red storm gave me a buzz. Well I'd like to apologize for those of you who waited, it was wrong of me to set this out and then vanish. With that out of the way lets get this show on the road...I'd need profiles simply race, age, and a description of the characters appearance is all I need. If we get 5 or more people I'll set a date.

11-20-2004, 01:23 AM
Wow, well its good to see more people have joined. Well even though I said five I think we can run with four. I have a few positions I'm going to need to fill...I could do it with NPC's but I'd much rather offer them to you guys. If your interested in taking one of these positions IM me on AIM, my sn is LupinsAlterEgo

Enforcer - Charged with defending the city against the near constant barrage of demonic and undead forces Enforcers are a coveted position. While many try, few attain the title and those who do are given great respect. As a Enforcer you'd serve directly under the Lord of the city and would recieve great benefits from the new government as well as the die hard respect of most of the population. You'll have to act within the laws but the rewards are great for those who are just and on a righteous path.

Black Agents - While these men and women are in service to the city one would never know it. They're task is simple, hunt down and eliminate all necromantic and demonic threats within the cities walls. They are given extreme freedom in going about their tasks and are encouraged to mingle in the criminal underworld. Naturally the officials deny these agents existence but thats fine, they prefer to not answer to the beauracrats anyway. Its a great position for those who want a good share of power and the freedom to do what they want, but don't be fooled...your employers are very demanding and it has a very high mortality rate.

BlackGuard - Feeling a little evil? find a different position. Feeling downright insideous? then welcome to the Blackguard. These men and women are serving as the guards and enforcers of the necromancers hidden within the city walls. They are blessed with unnatural dark prowess and are given a ridiculous amount of contacts and assets. But your always at the mercy of your master (well for a while at least...) and your tasks are his bidding.

Technomancers - This class is probably the most under-populated on the planet. Technomancers are the few individuals left who understand how to work, repair and manipulate the technologies of old. They can pilot an Elven airship or properly use black-powder weapons (If they can find them that is). Even if its not the lost technologies the Technomancer is good at manipulating it if its mechanical...they even seem to have near magical powers of the world of technology. Of coarse the down side to this is that a Technomancer must be willing to do alot of searching and experimenting to hone their skills and even then some of their powers may back-fire on them causing disasterous results. Great for any gunners out there or anyone who wants a real challenge, also you can't pick a side...Technomancers will always only be out for themselves.

Problem: I don't have AIM, but would a PM work too?

11-20-2004, 12:42 PM
Ya, I got the same problem XP so can we PM you instead? and if you don't want that, can we just post it here?

11-20-2004, 08:07 PM
Yeah sure Pm, post its all good. Also I want to tell everyone I'll be on vacation from the 23-30 so the game won't be starting until I get back. And while I'm at it I'd like to go ahead and post some of the main NPC's bios...these are people who will regularly interact with the characters (or simply are to important not to know about).

The Noble - few have ever seen this enigmatic figure but he is the single most wanted living being on the planet. He is the the sole practitioner of true necromancy and its said he's the forerunner in technomancy studies. Anyone hoping to bring the rebirth of the Black King flock to his banner and in recent nights many criminals and despots have found a place under him as well. No-one knows his true name or appearance and only a handful of people can say they have even heard his voice.

Sain - The lord of the city of Dortor and one of the last remaining dragons. In his serpent form he's a sight to behold standing over 150' high and with silver scales he glistens in the sun. In his homid form he appears to be a larger, stouter version of the common lizard-man. He is the only individual said to know what truly happened the day the Black King fell and i currently putting the city under reformation to help purge the many threats the writhe within it. All who meet him are awed by his majesty and kindness...indeed even the most evil of men would fear and respect this bastion of good.

Flint Mason - With firey red hair and a ruddy complextion Flint is a real example of why Dwarves arn't really called beautiful creatures. Still many revere him as he is the leader of the Enforcers and the one of the last remaining blacksmiths who know how to forge and train people in the use of black-powder weapons. He has a rough and tumble attitude and enjoys his ale with a passion, but unlike many of his brothers he's very kind and care-free.

Shade - No-one's sure if he even exists, indeed he may be just a rumor but this man (or women) is the head of the black agents. There are rumors abound that he's actually a demon but none of these have seen the light of day and most of the people who tote them around end up missing. The only report of this being have ever been seen was by the last captain of the Enforcers unfortunatly he had his eyes cut and was poisoned in his sleep that very same night.

I'll finish the list later...tommorow probably.

Legends hint of these mythical beings thousands of years ago when man and the sort were still young, they were in otherwords called "The Wise Ones". Mages of immense and truley all encompassing primal and eathrel powers, supposedly older than most races on the planet.Evan rumoured that they werent entirely human, onley in visual form.
