#DragonNation


MASSIVE DragonNation RP party!

Do you like roleplaying? Well, we have just the RP event for you!

Curious? Here's some expository information about the setting...
:icontransparentplz: Avalon, at its birth, its conception, was a glorious kingdom spanning much of the fertile land outside the great English kingdoms and civilizations, to the east of their borders. But it wasn't a kingdom built by man, no - instead it was forged by great beasts of wisdom known as dragons. Though only a handful of races lived in the kingdom, the majority of them were definitely western style dragons, though continued to vary in quite a few ways among themselves. These dragons formed what they called the Union - a unification of the different tribes and families that made the kingdom the great nation it is today.

:icontransparentplz: However, the English nation became envious of their kingdom and how it prospered, wanting that power and resource for themselves instead of leaving it in the hands of beasts they thought to be dangerous urchins who sought only to make their lives harder. Sensing the coming of a war, the great king Fae'ron decided to take away the kingdom of Avalon from the creatures of the land and forged a mighty enchantment upon a great crystal in the throne room of his castle, bonding the kingdom to the very spiritual energy that keeps the earth alive and giving it great power in return. The kingdom started floating.

:icontransparentplz: Lifted from the land by the great powers spanning the earth in all directions, a massive new nation was born as the earth used its energy to heal the hole left behind with the blessing and power of Fae'ron. This kingdom now expanded far beyond its original bounds as it grew in the sky, gathering a few small islands around it as it did so and eventually reaching a mass that outgrew even the massive island to the south (Austrailia). The flying kingdom of Avalon had finally been born, and was now free to follow the rivers of energy that it is now bonded to while its people and resources grew to match its size - even going so far as to gaining its own unique animal populus.

:icontransparentplz: This was not the end of Avalon's contact with the surface, for as the kingdom grew, so did its influence, and soon it found itself making allies out of the remaining tribes on the surface and even some humans who have now chosen to "follow the light", as they claim, and rejoin with their dragon brothers as it was at the dawn of time when dragons swore an oath to watch over humanity and help them grow. These newcomers were welcomed into the kingdom with open arms and have had several descendants in the two hundred years that Avalon has remained in the sky.

:icontransparentplz: Now is the time of coronation, for a new king to be chosen out of the children of Fae'ron, whose names are Dante and Azeizal. Naturally, this means the daughter, Saphira, is not eligible - nor are her children Nerakai and Malakar.

:icontransparentplz: The sun had risen above the castle this early morning and was already appearing to rest atop the highest spire which sits behind the throne room when looked upon from the west. The king was already in the throne room with his two sons and the council of elders with the doors sealed to keep out interlopers while they discuss who should be crowned as the next king of Avalon, to carry on his father's legacy. These sorts of debates could take weeks before a final decision is made. However, with coronation in two days, they've begun to rush past their final examinations to the point where a king will be named by this evening, which is in a few hours still as it is only eight in the morning.


And of course, all good roleplay groups have a few guidelines...

1. This is a group roleplay and therefore will be a group effort that could actually change the outcome of the entire project depending on what happens. This does not mean all players will be acknowledged at all times as reaction time and personalities need to be taken into consideration for how characters will react to situations.

2. Only NPCs (Non player characters) can be killed in this role play BUT keep in mind that, unless resurrected,they will become an egg again (Unless executed by the royal palace and council of elders) in the Avalonian reincarnation cycle and be born under different parents, chosen at random. (This cycle only applies to Avalon citizens. However, there are other races and species that have cycle of their own and, if you wish to include one such cycle, you must explain it in detail and keep it underpowered.) So do please try to keep the characters you want to be around for a long time from dying. Do NOT metagame to save them, though, and likewise for other players killing each other. Cheating like that is NOT okay for either side.

3. One post per player, not character. If you have a lot to say, remember to keep it all to one post and NEVER make your attacks hit directly on anyone BUT your own characters/NPCs, all other attacks must be ATTEMPTS where the target character's owner will make a realistic choice on whether it hits or not, if it hits the desired area, and what effect it has when their turn comes. (Remember to wait your turn, this IS a turn based role play) Remember, the GMs (Admins and moderators) will be watching to make sure that what your characters do makes sense in terms of (modified) physics.

4. Just about every species/race is permitted within reason if the player can come up with a valid reason for them to either be in Avalon, or interacting with the other characters as this won't just take place on the floating country.

5. Players are restricted to 3 characters and four NPCs at a time. The difference between the two is that NPCs are more expendable and will usually have very minor roles to play in the progression, unless marked as important (If taking control of an allowed character that GMs put out).

6. Last but not least, remember to have FUN and don't get mad if things don't go your way. This is a GROUP EFFORT, don't forget that!

PHYSICS: Well, first and foremost, the laws of physics most definitely apply to this role play so don't have like, a rock or something, float effortlessly in water without some sort of spell keeping it that way. These physics will also allow for injuries to come to characters that may remove them from the role play temporarily, depending on the severity. Avalonian doctors are VERY GOOD at keeping their patients alive, so even life threatening injuries could be kept at bay by their doctors. These doctors will help ALL factions they happen to come across, and a few of the GMs will be playing field medics to usher them off back home through medivac portals that send them someplace safe within the kingdom. Only the doctors can perform these spells but they, like all magic, can be rather taxing sometimes so do not rely on the medics solely to keep you alive and kicking.

MAGIC: Now, the different styles of magic are all more or less straightforward, as are the limits for how races can use them. Avalonian Dragons are imbued with natural magical energy that they can call upon through their voices in the actual Avalonian language, which is no longer used for talking, just spell craft. Dragons do not automatically know spells from this tongue, and likewise not all things said in this tongue will have a magical effect. Different ways of using it would be single words that can call forth elements and even summon creatures to their aid in battle - long spells can perform enchantments and attacks like areas of effect and other similar things. Other races can bring their own magic set and rules to the table but they must be approved by moderators BEFORE they are allowed to be used in the role play. All added magic sets shall be documented for future reference as well, same with the species created.

Creatures: Avalon is home to several races, which include differently colored versions of earth's creatures, some winged variants, and other such things (Including all of mythology.) So, you could end up coming across a wolf with wings or a bird with four legs if you looked hard enough. Magic does have a strange effect on animals. The native dragons, though, have thick scales but usually are not plated so, with enough force, things CAN penetrate their scales. Their wings and undersides are a lot easier to penetrate, though, and should serve as good weak points. (Other creatures brought to the table should also have similar strengths and weaknesses in terms of balance. Doesn't mean they have to be exactly the same, just balanced between their strengths and weaknesses.)
