    Blackshard Prequel: Rise of the Nethermagus (Special Hell)

    I'm putting together another RP in the Special Hell Chat, a prequel to the Blackshard stories and RP created by lurker. For those of you familiar with the setting, this would take place before the Rift Wars, or the discovery of Rift Magic or Fleshcrafting, or the foundation of the Kingdom of Braxil. The game will be held on Thursday afternoons (EST). Interested players should feel free to enter a placeholder and/or post their characters, using a format along the same lines. At any rate, here's the campaign premise...

    I'll write the obligatory author-tying-in-important-lore-characters later. It's too damn early. *flop*

    And now, my char

    Player Name - lurker
    Character Name - Helvoque Magmahammer, third in line of the Forgefathers
    Character Race - Dwarf
    Description - Typical dwarf, three foot or so tall and rather stout. A large, partially-braided beard and short brown hair, with brown hair.
    Items and Equipment - Stone hammer with Flarestone molded inside of it, shield with the Magmahammer crest, two-handed waraxe of Dwarven forging, dwarf-sized breastplate and helmet. Water horn, various dwarven trinkets devoted to the Goddess of the Smith.
    Motivation - History remembers Helvogue's early years probably better than the two Forgefathers that preceded him- mainly due to the fact that he still rules the lands even in the modern ages of Kalifer. What history has forgotten is his early years as a regent commander during the early years of Malga's Crusade. Noone could have ever expected the Orcs to start the war against the giant, underground fortresses and the terrifying horrors in the deepest corner of the Underlands, and it was thanks to his retainers informing him to flee that he was able to bring word to the others of his kind. As of now, he has been instructed by his father, Magni Magmahammer, to hold in the human capitol of Ritzerite to await further instructions, and to aid the humans and elves as much as possible to further preserve the continued line of Forgekings. Helvogue sees the call for heros as twofold- first, a literal interpretation of his Father's orders. Second, a right chance to prove himself and wipe away the invaders from his homeland in the name of all the clans of the deep below.

      Player Name: Ranger9000
      Character Name: Thraexyra Audaxia
      Character Race - Drider
      Description- Larger, less chibi, version of this,
      Items and Equipment - Staff that she uses to channel eromagic, clothes, waterkin
      Motivation - Thraexyra is a rather odd drider, and she's currently on the surface in a bid to prove herself strong, so that she can go back to the other driders not as 'that odd drider' and instead return as 'the drider that stopped an ork crusade' Hopefully then she can gain influence and become a major power in drider society. A goal planted into her by her chimera slave Vel.

        Player Name: Caulder
        Character Name: Alexis Darkwing
        Character Race - Dragonkin
        Description: A 6'1" Black Dragonkin with piercing orange eyes and four long white horns jutting out from her temples, and sharp black claws on the ends of her fingers. She's dressed mostly in adventuring leathers, and carries a multitude of pouches and small packs on her person, mostly her belts and bandoleers, outfitted for extended travel and survival.
        Items and Equipment - Mostly survival gear, such as ropes, flint and steel, travel rations, all manner of supplies for surviving out in the wilderness. She carries only a whip for a weapon, though she has an overabundance of training in Force magic at her disposal.
        Motivation - Alexis is an adventurer. She has no real home for herself, and mostly wanders, seeking fortune and material wealth, the same vanity her ancestors suffered from. Hearing the call to arms from Lady Greenleaf, however, she's seen an opportunity to set herself up for life by helping them, and has heeded the call.
        I come from the part of the Internet that is ACTUALLY dark and full of terrors.

          Player Name: Zilrax
          Character Name: Vel
          Character Race - Chimera Beastkin
          Items and Equipment - Steel Slave Collar with attached Iron Chain Lead, Metal lockable mittens, x2 Ring Gags, Ball Gag for Snake with chain to lock to Collar.
          Description: Vel is 4' 8", with golden fur running down her arms legs and back, her torso exposed. She has a semi feline head with curled horns on top, and a snake for a tail complete with separate head at the end. She generally wears nothing at all beyond her slave garb, which amounts to bondage gear, to keep her "Under control".
          Motivation - Vel's been a slave all her life. Kept small through means both magical and physical, she's been a lap pet, toy and once of age, sexual relief for many diffrent masters, traded about as a commodity, before eventually discarded to raise Thraexyra on her own. So Vel taught her what she knew. Being a slave.

          As time passed, raising Thraexyra as she was herself, thoughts ran through the chimera's head. The chance to use the drider to her benefit as she had been, to get prestige, for both of them. But it'd take subtlety, and for obstacles to... disappear.

          Thus Thraexyra was trained to act the proper dominant drider in public, to the best of her ability, and Vel acted the slave, while keeping an eye for targets to deal with, and eventually place her Smidgeon (Her pet name for Thraexyra) on top the totem pole and thus live in luxury. With the orc incursion, a risky proposition opened itself. Defeat the orcs, and thus be able to talk holdings and power from the defeated. A short cut for them both.

              Let's say I wanted to make a tetra that could spin web, would that be possible? And if so what kind of magic or whatever would I need to have?

              Perfection is humanly impossible. The more you reach for it the farther away it grows. Failure is inherited to our species as a whole. But punishing ourselves and beating ourselves up for it helps nothing. The best any decent person can do is try, and try, and try again. And try to get better little by little day by day.

                No, but you could come close. A drider could spin web, though the party already has one (and I'm not sure about the utility of TWO characters that can spin web). Or you could be a tetra who specializes in nature magic, as practiced by the under elves (less focused on manipulating plants and animals, and more focused on manipulating fungi, webs, and underground critters... and bondage).

                  Player Name: Tenta
                  Character Name: Oboro, the Spider Lady
                  Character Race - Wood Elf
                  Items and Equipment - A Scepter for amplifying magic, a whip strapped to her belt, A pair of daggers, and a light mace for dealing with undead.
                  Description:
                  Spoiler
                  Oboro is a dark skinned elf, with long black hair, golden yellow ears, she wears a revealing purple outfit, with thigh high boots, and arm wraps. Both of her ears are covered in piercings, and she wears a self fashioned crown, with a high collared black red lined cape attached to her outfit by shoulder pads. She also has what appears to be a red gem in her hair. Oboro is a cautious, maneuverable, sly lady with a regal bearing. She enjoys playing with prey before going in for the kill and can be quite seductive.
                  Motivation - Oboro is a Wood Elf who orphaned at a young age by a necromancer attack on her village. She wondered the wilderness for some time, barely managing to get by scrounging plants and herbs and hunting wild beasts until she was found by a travelling trap door drider and taken to the Under to be trained as an assassin for hire.

                    Player Name: Aust Nailo
                    Character Name Zyanya
                    Character Race - Shiriti
                    Description:
                    Stands at roughly 6 feet 3 inches, possesses dark hair and grey eyes.
                    http://www.ulmf.org/bbs/picture.php?...ictureid=15718

                    (Same outfit but made of fur rather than cloth, and a pair of hide armbands on her wrists decorated with bright feathers) Basically, tall and fit with a slight hint of musculature but modest bust. They get in the way anyway!

                    Items and Equipment - Befitting her tribal roots and upbringing, is primarily trained in the use of the spear, an obsidian tipped spear to be specific with the shaft made of a fine hardwood found back home. Has minor bow knowledge but prefers not to use it.

                    Motivation - Zyanya is the daughter of one of the current tribal leader of the Shiriti, sent to represent her people in the coming crisis. Though the problems of the mainland do little to affect the Shiriti (I figured cause of their location), her mother realized the potential danger a united orc army held and the potential for them to use ships once the mainland is conquered to invade the Shiriti home. Even with all their strength, the Shiriti would be unable to oppose such a force and would be enslaved or wiped out much like the mainlanders would be. So in response to the call for aid, Zyanya was sent as a liason.

                      Character Name - Raz'Qui "The Razor Wing"

                      Character Race - Dragonkin

                      Description - Raz'Qui stands at an impressive 7' 8" His body is thick and heavily muscled, but not so much as to not allow a full range of motions. His body is covered in small smooth white scales, being almost invisible from their size. Raz'Qui is a martial warrior and his body shows it. A nasty scar runs across his right eye, leaving the orb a milky white. His wings have seen more wear and tear then the rest of his body. A portion of the last limb on the left wing has been cut off. The membrane is noticable lacking on both leaving behind a skeletal frame. The rest of his body is covered in pale scars and are nearly invisible having been ages old. Both his claws and teeth have been sharped to fine tips designed to rend and tear his foes.


                      Items and Equipment - Wears very little in terms of clothing, wearing only a simple loin cloth. When battle calls he straps on a few unique pieces, aside from his simple white leather armour. He also carries a large two handed blade on his back when his natural weapons are powerless against armour.

                      The first unique weapon is his tail is equipped with a sharp blade on the tip, more designed for slashing then to stab. The outer limb wing limbs are equipped with a razor sharp blade along it's length. In the case of his broken wing, the blade has a extension to match the missing limb segment.
