New Fantasy RP, discussion (Need's name)

Post  Gig on Tue Jan 18, 2011 8:12 pm

I'd like to start a nice original Fantasy RP here on the forum, before I make the real thing though I'd like to get a few race ideas, from the rest of you so that I can hammer out the setting early so I can avoid inconsistencies. This is what I currently have.

World Map


Nation
Tanith Alliance
Once a part of the Kingdom of Solomore the people of the Tanith Alliance banded together to overthrow the rule of there former monarchs now the most advanced magical civilization in the known world there civilization is destined to be a short lived one.

Kingdom of Solomore
The second oldest nation on Kiam the Kingdom of Solomore in recent years has been reduced to nothing but a shadow of its former might. Solomore has access to technology roughly equal to a late medieval power despite there lack of technology they possess some of the most famous orders of knights and wizarding schools in the world.

Dukedom of Caladon
A former province of Solomore Caladon gained independence shortly before the formation of the Tanith alliance. Like Solomore they possess technology similar to a late medieval power and have the the best trained and equipped conventional armies in all of Kiam despite this they are still little more than a vassal of Solomore to be called upon at the beck and call of the King.

Queendom of Valindas
A minor amazonian nation to the south of Solomore there most notable quality is that woman hold the positions of power usually held by men in other nations.

Daggertooth
A relatively unknown yet harsh area of land occupied by several lesser known races who all via for control of the region, known races who dwell in the lands of Daggertooth include, The Wolves and Orks.

Frostren
I barren frozen land rumored to be the last refuge of dragon kind in Kiam

Republic of Kaladan
The oldest Nation in Kiam it is all that remains if the ancient Astrium Empire which was destroyed long ago millennia ago by an unknown force. Even today hundreds of Astrium Ruins litter the lands of Kaladan littered with markings depicting everything from simple day to day life to incredible battles.

Magic

Magic is the power which binds the world nations with more powerful magic wielders are considered the more powerful nations, the advancement of magic has all but made conventional armies worthless as such many nations armies have become little more than

General
General magic is the most rudimentary form of magic every mage is capable of its use and thus it is easily the most common magic in the world. General magic is some what like the magic in Harry potter and is tied to no particular element basically it is pure magic the most basic spells is some what like a ki blast from dragon ball.

Elementalism
Elementalism is divided into 4 elements these elements are Water, Wind, earth, and fire each element is unique in every way and possess certain strengthens and weaknesses
• Fire is the most destructive of the 4 elements and the least versatile Fire magic possess allot of raw power it being able to quickly decimate vast numbers of opponents easily
• Water is the most versatile of the 4 elements water is considered very adaptable as it can be used for great offence and defence allowing for the mage to control the battle field easier.
• Earth is considered the opposite to fire in that it focus more on defence then offence an earth mage is able to control earth/rock it’s self allowing them to form powerful constructs and golems out if the very ground to aid in there defence
• Wind magic is unique amongst the elements in that though it is generally weaker in all categories it like water though has some special benefits which usually even things out such allowing a mage to attain super sonic speeds and flight as well as allowing them to redirect offensive spells with wind currents.

Black magic
Black magic is magic that is unusable by mortals naturally Black magic can only be attained by mortals though a pact with a demonic entity the more powerful the demonic being the more powerful the Black magic the mage gains though the pact other powers gained include but not restricted to are super human strength, speed, durability and enhanced magical channelling as well as being able to use lesser versions of all the powers of the said demon. The down side to these pacts is that you must sacrifice any 1 thing the demons desires this though can be any thing from your 1 of your 6 senses to the lose of all emotion you never know what a demon will ask in return

Black magic is generally the most powerful magic due to the fact that those who practice it have had to surrender some thing important to gain it. Those’s who practice black magic don’t lose there ability to use elementalism the opposite actually happens and there abilities greatly enhance due to there super human ability to channel magical energies.

(Point practicing black magic does not mean your evil) no one at the start should be a black magic practiser yet and if you do plan to become one your not allowed to say the demon takes this I'll make the demons decision for it this should stop people from becoming overpowered

Necromancy
Necromancy not to be confused with black magic is the art of animating and controlling the dead Necromancers are generally weaker than mages in 1 on 1 combat due to there art focusing more on the use of familiars and minions.

It is not unknown for powerful necromancers to be able to animate entire armies or even control powerful undead such as Drcolich (undead dragons)

Character Sheet

Name –
Gender –
Age –
occupation –
Home town -
Stats (You get 15 points to distribute amongst the 3 stats there for RP purposes so we know who’s physically stronger, Faster, 10 is the highest available other than that it does nothing and you don't need to use all 15 points)
Strength/Durability –
Speed/Dexterity –
Intelligence/Magic –

Bio -

I'll be the DM I have a few arcs planned already and I'll try and push them forward in between my own story arcs I'll let other people put forward ideas and run there own arcs as DM. If you wish to make your own race feel free but I'd like to look them over first, they can be from any of the nations given but be warns Solomore, Caladon and Valindas's governments are very much anti anything that is not human.

I've lowered the maximum points, 15 should be more than enough.

I think the magic in this RP is too much of it tbh, not going to be much physical fighting of armies or such

The entire plot is going to force people to use physical fighting the entire story is around the fact that the nations have become too dependant upon magic.

There are anti magic devices there just going to be rare, the first major villians are actually completely immune to the effects of magic but are also incapable of using it, meaning every nation that is overly reliant on magic (Tanith and Solomore to a lesser extent) are going to get a rude wakeup call.

Edit: Also if you where powerful enough to gather a small army of 1000 you should be more than capable of highering a contract wizard who you could use to protect your army.

Magic isen't that overpowered in everything. Like Gig sead also id imagine its become mandatory for any army in the rp to have mages with them to cancle out other mages.

yes i agree mages to counter other mages but ONE UBER MEGA MAGE would be unbeatable

plus the idea of oppnents immune to magic is a good idea but what if the magic didnt hit them directly but made there opponants immensly better or if it just summoned 1,000,000 men

it just seems like its too easy to manipulate around the system

UBER MEGA MAGES are as rare as Gods and yes they would have Godlike power but there at such a level of power conquest is below most of them, most generally travel from world to world learning to become more powerful and dealing with other UBER MEGA MAGES.

The avarage mage wouldn't be able to summon 1,000,000 familiers, and indirect magic effects them. You just seem to be looking at the magic system at its most broken, storywise as the GM I'm not going to allow them to randomly summon 1,000,000 men out of nowhere that would just ruin the plot

You could apply this mage bashing logic to any rp. For example the naruto rp

There is nothing suggest its that easy to be uber powerfull i was going to be a mage but rp it fairly. Its easy to find problems like that in anything if you're looking for them in that way.

But yeh you shopuld make it soon so we can acctually start rping lol

Just like Batman is fucked because he doesn't have a super power in DC, just like you're fucked if you play as a Warrior in dungeons and dragons, you know just to silence this I'm going to play as someone who has NO magic
