Glimmer Of Hope

Post  DM Althaless on Tue Mar 11, 2014 6:16 am

THIS EVENT WILL CONTINUE SATURDAY 12TH APRIL, 20:00 GMT

The Backdrop

As darkness settles over the lands and foul things come forth from the darkness a group of young adventurers step forth.
From Tivook to Humfoodale rumours of darkness and foul deeds have spread. The once flourishing and great lands of Tivook are sinking into darkness and monsters that have only existed in wives tales have come forth.
North of the river the Slaad cower and the creatures of the deep pay homage to only one. United they serve. Rumour has turned to gossip. Gossip has turned to stories. And stories....often hold hidden truths.

The storms tears at the sails and rips the rigging from its securing points. Waves crash over the decks spraying salty water into the faces of those trying to save their ship. And their lives. A howling on the wind as if the very gods are screaming at the ship forcing it to crash onto the rocky cliffs in the distance. Grabbing the ropes and trying to secure the sails to make that last ditch attempt for a safe shore if your only hope. The rope burns through your hands as you grasp it. Bleeding and soaked to the bone all hope is. A brief flicker of light in the distance. A port... perhaps.






Rules

To take part in the following Event i have set certain criteria. As the story progresses this will become clearer as to why.

#1 You must start with a level 1 PC - I can not express this enough!!!!!!!. Step away from your comfortable regular PC and embark on a new journey. Your PC will not know anyone in Dohral. Nor will you know each other. You will have access to the OOC store to equip your PC. No items can be Xfered or brought with you onto the PC involved.
Naming Conventions - There are no restrictions as such but "Dingleberry the slayer of bats and ruler of all Tivook" Will not be accepted for obvious reasons. There are also to be no use of titles E.G "Lord" "Duke" "Knight" Your a lowly level 1 PC you dont have a title, These must be earned.

#2 You will only be able to play the Character you create during the event times. You will be given a token which stop you earning XP and be sent to an OOC area at the end of each session... just to be certain no one is gaining an advantage through gear etc. At the start and End of each event we will have an OOC debrief and general chat where you may submit PC plot ideas and anything else you wish to discuss.

#3 As with everything in Dohral this will be based heavily around RP. Not every session will be Hack 'N' Slash. RP will be rewarded heavily along with the general XP you receive for kills. This doesnt mean however that we will be IC the entire time. I want this to feel relaxed. If a PC comes out with something funny theres nothing wrong with a //LOL but try keep it to a minimum.

#4 Talk Channel: Remain in the Talk Channel as much as possible. Party chat is not allowed unless necessary. This is for DM reasons don't need to say more. The use of /tell will also be frowned upon. Keep it open, Lets RP it.

All rules are subject to change and your input is as always welcome.


#5 RACES: Your Character must be of the Standard NwN Races when created. Drow, Aasimar, Duergar etc etc will not be accepted.

#6 Class Restrictions. I have thought heavily on this and was on the verge of adding class restrictions. I am however simply going to say this. Any abuse of class' will be dealt with severely. THERE IS TO BE NO SCRYING ON ANY PLAYER INVOLVED IN THIS EVENT.

Well thats enough for the rules. Not too many though.







Submitting your PC for approval: All players that wish to be involved are to REPLY HERE me with the following:

Willingness to Play:  Every time - most times - sometimes
Name of Character:
Race:
Class:
Time Zone:
Character Backgrounds: Post on the forum or Send to me via PM if you wish to keep details back. The more i know the more i can work with you all.








Now i realise that asking you all to create a new PC and step away from your usual Level 40 Uber toon is a big jump.
During this event XP will come at different rates. One session you may gain a few levels, Another you may gain only the XP earned from killing monsters. The amount of XP i can reward for RP IS BASED SOLELY ON YOUR INPUT!!!. More effort = More XP its that simple. So leveling should be fairly quicker....right?








Timetable


Monday: 20:00 - End*
Tuesday: 20:00 - End
Wednesday: Maint Day
Thursday: 20:00 - End
Weekends: Vary - You will be given prior notice via the forum for weekend sessions.

(End - Till the PC's or myself feel they have had enough or once PC's begin to leave)
(Wednesday: Main Day - Will be resolving any character issues/fixes, General feedback day. Not required to attend. 20:00 GMT)


A START DATE WILL BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY BUT IS UNCONFIRMED FOR 25TH MARCH. THIS CAN BE CHANGED TO ACCOMMODATE THOSE INVOLVED

Galvin Lightnin' Grod

Post  Mizfat on Tue Mar 11, 2014 4:32 pm

Willingness to Play: most times
Name of Character: Galvin Grod
Race: Dwarf
Class: Fighter
Time Zone: UTC-5
Character Backgrounds:

Galvin's clan, Ironbones, is a proud and belligerent tribe of deep dwelling dwarves. Among the Ironbones, it is a rite of passage into manhood to anneal some iron to the bone of the aspirant's sternum. This painful ritual ensures their physical toughness and dedication. Unfortunately, it also attracts electricity. Galvin himself has been struck by lightning three times. While truly fearless and stout-hearted in all other situations no matter how dire, he is deathly afraid of being on the surface and exposed to the open sky in bad weather. Finding himself on a ship during a storm is surely his worst nightmare! He will not be in a good mood at the start of this adventure.

Willingness to Play:  Most times (would be every time, but can't guarantee if I can do that)
Name of Character: Myrin Rose
Race: Human
Class: Rogue
Time Zone: GMT/UTC 0
Character Backgrounds:
A rather pretty lass, who appears to have spent much time in the sun and to have come from a common background (judging by the state of her mish mashed clothing that has seen better days). Myrin may have been seen boisterously socialising with others aboard the ship- when she wasn't fretting. Myrin seemed eager to reach Hardibartha, and despite seeming at ease on the seas, was obviously anxious to reach land. Perhaps a little too anxious. Myrin seems always on the look out, watching the seas, looking for something. When the storm struck, Myrin seemed frustrated rather than scared (although still a little- okay, a lot, scared... maybe a little terrified)- knowing her way around a ship enough to survive the storm at least.

Character background: ... well, I don't know if this is really a "must-have", but I am thinking it, I'm not good at that, but I'll try my best, and sometimes the background reveals itself to me as I RP with that PC, so... questions: 1: Is it that the background story is a thing you must have to enter the event? 2: I... kind of created this PC recently, is there a problem asking for a complete reset for him before the start of the event?

No its not required it simply makes it easier for me to personalize the event towards your character at some point, Each PC involved will eventually come into contact or come across something of personnel reference etc etc.... Its always a good idea to have a description and a general background even if its a vague one, if you don't wish to have one that is entirely your choice Wink

It is easier however if you start with a fresh level 1 char, You can simply change the name slightly if you so wish and delete your old PC next time you die.


Edit: Hacatsu could you confirm your Race is an Elf, I assume so with the name ?

RL tripped me up big- only just got home, and found out the flatmates have messed up the kitchen I got clean for tomorrow's inspection (Something they can charge us money for, if they think we're not being clean enough), so I need to go eat dinner, clean the flat again, and do the study work I was going to do before the event, before I got called on to help out with stuff. Geh. So sorry Perrin. I should have been able to make this.

Btw, I'll be unavailable for NwN from the 9-15th of April. I'll probably also be a bit busy through out the holidays, as I'll be spending time with family. I will try to meet any set times, but if I can't, I'll try to think up some reason why Myrin is being a lazy bugger.
