Re: Tales of Ruxar | The Lore

Postby Stormt4lon » Thu Oct 11, 2018 9:39 am

────────────────────────


Have you ever heard of the Realm of Ruxar? Let me tell you the story. But prepare yourself, for it is a tale of much sadness.
A tale, of great disaster.
A tale, that has yet to be ended...


────────────────────────


One hundred years ago, Ruxar was at peace. There was no danger, no ruin, for the god of peace smiled down upon us. We knew there were other gods, some even worshiped them. But the only true god recognized by all of Ruxar, the one true god, was peace. For that was all we had known. For millennia the other gods accepted this,
they knew that peace was the primary power. But one day, no one is exactly sure when, the god of war decided that he was tired of bowing to peace. He wanted ruin, he wanted people to worship him. And so, he cast his influence over the world, and those that had once practiced peace, began to practice war.

The god of war has not reliquenshed his shadow in those one hundred years, and now all Ruxar knows is war.
Children are taught to fight from the earliest moment possible, and adults fight until they are slain.

However, the god of peace, who has been fighting war's hold over the world, has finally chosen a hero. This hero will be the one to save the world...

or they will conquer it. It all depends on the choices of the hero

────────────────────────


And so now you know our story.
The only question is, are you willing to step up to the plate?

For you see, YOU are the hero chosen by the god of peace. Are you willing to save the world? Or will you take over the armies and conquer Ruxar?

Re: Tales of Ruxar | The Gods and Species

Postby Stormt4lon » Fri Oct 12, 2018 3:14 am

────────────────────────

So you've accepted your mission have you? Well then, let me tell you about the beings that live in Ruxar. First off, the three gods:

────────────────────────


Wycker
The god of peace, Wycker's symbol
is the feather. Wycker is a kindhearted
man, and loves the people of Ruxar.
Wycker has pale skin and dark brown hair.
He is Ruxarian in nearly every way, except
for the black Ichian wings that sprout from
his back.
Xenos
The god of war, Xenos's symbol
is a series of claw marks.
Xenos isn't particuarly evil, but he
adores war, and after being kept
away from it for millions upon millions
of years, he snapped. Xenos is the reason
for the current war, and is mostly Ruxarian
in appearance, with the wings and tail
of a Wyverian.
Yen
The only goddess, Yen is a winged
Vyperian who controls balance,
and after years of peace, she is
not against a few hundred years
of war if need be. She helped to
influence Xenos to start the war,
but it was he who ultimately started
things.



───────────────────────

Now that you know of Ruxar's gods, let me tell you of the beings that inhabit the land of Ruxar:
Though only one gender is shown in the example images, they can be any gender unless specified as strictly male or strictly female

───────────────────────


The Ruxarian
The most common in Ruxar,
Ruxarians are beings of the
ground. They have excellent
mastery of earth, and are able
to craft many things. Ruxarians
have by far the most diversity of
appearance, as they can have pale
or dark skin, and hair in any shade
from palest blond to darkest black.
The Ichian
The Ichian are beings of the
sky. Half Ruxian half bird, these
majestic beings are not as peaceful
as their calm, silky feathers lead to
believe. Ichian are people of war,
and were the first to attack others
in the great war. Ichian tend to be
very battle-ready, even without the
influence of Xenos.
The Wyverian
Dragons who walk on two legs,
the Wyverian are nearly as
fierce as the Ichian. However,
they are at a constant war with
the bird people, because the
Wyverian believe that the sky
should be theirs alone, not
shared with something that can
be plucked and eaten.
The Vyperian
Strictly female, the Vyperian
are a race of half woman half
snake that live in the deserts of
Ruxar. In order to repopulate,
the Vyperian has always had an
alliance with the Kobrian race.
Once a month the two tribes get
together, and any females born stay
with the Vyperian, and any males
born go to the Kobrian.
The Kobrian
Strictly male, the Kobrian
are a male counterpart to
the Vyperian an outsider
might say. However, any Kobrian
knows this to be false. The Kobrian
are stronger than their swift-tailed
counterparts, and they tend to be
much taller. The Kobrians always
have and always will have an
alliance with the Vyperians.
The Kitsune
The Kitsune are by far
the most cunning of all
Ruxar's species. Half Ruxarian
half fox, these light-footed
thieves can and will steal anything
you have that is even the tiniest
bit valuable. It would be best
to keep an eye on your belongings
when traveling with one of these
tricksters.
The Sirens
Half Ruxian Half Fish, the Siren
are basically an underwater
version of the Vyperian and
Kobrian. The only difference is,
once they are on land, they can
change their tail into legs to
walk on. Sirens are almost as
good at deception as Kitsunes,
however they must
sing in order to deceive.
The Kiyane
The Kiyane are a race of
half horse people who excel
at archery. In the era of peace,
they used their skills of painting
to create beautiful masterpieces.
In the current era, they use it
to camouflage themselves
from their enemies. It is practically
unheard of for one to be supportive
of the Kiyon, but few do exist
The Kiyon
The Kiyon were once a part of
the Kiyane tribes, before the
war began. The Kiyane saw the
Kiyon as weaker beings, being
half deer instead of half horse,
and slew them out. Now, the Kiyon
are practically extinct, with only
a few small tribes keeping them
alive. They battle through traps
and by using poison.
The Kelpie
Half Siren Half Kiyane, these rare
beings are not common due to
their origin. In order for a Kelpie
to be born, one of their parents
must be a Siren and the other a
Kiyane. Not as fast as the
horse-folk, nor as akin to the
water as the sea folk, Kelpie often
spend their lives trying to find a
place where they can belong
The Lytone
Half Ruxarian Half Lion, The Lytone
are fierce land predators. Living in
the thick forests near the southern
edge of Ruxar, it is rare to see one
farther north than the Kiyane
Tribelands. The Lytone are allied
with no one but themselves, and if
anyone is found trespassing without
permission they are ripped apart.
The Hykians
The Hykians are a race of half
rabbit people, who are constantly
moving about, and have no set
home. Their only real enemy is
the Kitsune, who see them as a
delicious snack. Hykians tend to
be very fleet-footed, and once one
starts running it will not stop until
it reaches its destination, making
them very good messengers.

Re: Tales of Ruxar | How to Play

Postby Stormt4lon » Fri Oct 12, 2018 3:19 am

────────────────────────


Now then, you're almost ready to begin. Now, all I have left to tell you is how to play. Listen carefully, because choosing the wrong choice early in the game can make all the difference later on


────────────────────────


Starting Off
Before you can really start to play, you must get your starting details. To get those,
you must PM the form on the third post to Savannah-the-Caracal, completely filled out. Choose your species from the above post, and make sure to reference that when making your backstory. After it has been approved (which may take some time if you've inputted a mary sue or something like that) Savannah will give you your character's stats (magic, speed, wits, ect) as well as their starting mission (for example, your character must go to blank and meet up with blank). You will THEN, and only then, post here. Make sure your post includes your characters stats, name, species, and their reference image.


Making Your Choices
From your first post onwards, you will be replied to by Savannah-the-Caracal (me),
or perhaps later down the game a mini-mod. Savannah will write out text based on what's going on around your character, and at the bottom give you between two to five choices on what to do or say. You will then make a new post, in which your character selects a decision and acts upon it. Choose wisely with your decisions, as a simple fist fight early on can lead to a dangerous enemy, and perhaps even death for your character later down the road.


Death
You heard me right. In battle scenarios, if they have been going on for three posts or more, a new variable is added to the random generator. A variable in which your character dies. If you die,
you have two choices - you may respin (I will redo the random gen) or you can accept death and create a new character. If the respin yields death again, then there is no choice your character is dead, and if you wish to keep playing you will have to make a new character.

Re: Tales of Ruxar | Locations

Postby Stormt4lon » Fri Oct 12, 2018 3:22 am

────────────────────────


Let me now tell you about the places you will most likely encounter at one point or another...This will be updated as locations appear in quests. Thanks to a friend offsite for finding the images. If you would like to submit images, message them to Savannah-the-Caracal

────────────────────────


Kiyon Forest
This is where majority of the Kiyon live, they spend their days making poisons,
painting camouflage, and practicing their shooting. Watch yourself as you enter, for unless you have a Kiyon guide, you may very well end up a pincushion.


Ruxomar City
inner city
Ruxomar City is the capital of Ruxar. It is mostly populated by Ruxarians, but other species do live there. Mostly those whose entire race is allies with the Ruxarians, though it is not that rare to find a traitor who betrayed their tribe to join the Ruxarian armies.

Vyperian Oasis
hilltop wall and gates inner city
Just like the name suggests, this is an oasis in the desert where most Vyperians make their home. This is where the Tribal leader lives, and where ambassadors of the Kobrian stay.

The City of Sirens
land-based part
Though the Siren's posses great magical ability, their creativity in naming their cities is...rather lacking. The City of Sirens is a city on a beach, half of it above water the rest undersea. Sirens are the primary species here, but some other species, who have allied themselves with the sirens can be found there. Though the city is decorated greatly with pearls, no one dares steal them, for if you are caught thieving in the City of Sirens, you will be killed in the slowest way possible.

Kiyane Tribelands
A massive expanse of forest and desert, the Kiyane Tribelands is where most Kiyane live, in one of three cities spread out across the area. Some can be found in other cities, or as parts of caravans, but if you're looking for a Kiyane this is where to go. Because they see them as weaker beings, Kiyane will not allow Kiyon into the main city Kiyane Grove, or the secondary city Kiyane Oasis. Kiyon are allowed in the smallest city, Sanctuary though, and it is the only place in the Kiyane Tribelands where it is illegal to kill a Kiyon.

Skigh
inner city
A combination of the words Sky and High, Skigh is a city way up in the mountains where the Ichian train for battle. They will train most other species if they ask, however Wyverian and Kiyon are not permitted. Wyverian because of the age old war, Kiyon because the Ichian were allied with the Kiyane when the Kiyon were driven out, and they share the horse-folk's view that the deer-folk are far too frail to be true warriors.

Hykian Hideaway
the castle
Where the Queen of the Hykian's lives, Hykian Hideaway is hidden deep in the southern forests, and is protected by spells cast by Hykian mages.

Re: Tales of Ruxar | NPCs

Postby Stormt4lon » Fri Oct 12, 2018 4:07 am

────────────────────────


Let me now tell you about the people you might meet on your journey, or names you would do well to know


────────────────────────


Kanti
Leader of the Vyperian, Kanti rarely leaves the Vyperian Oasis. She wears a lot of gold, and will sometimes dress as a guard to see who enters the town.

Vinta
Leader of the Kobrian, Vinta travels around Ruxar a lot, often joining Kobrian and Vyperian merchant caravans. He has a younger brother named Tumbleweed.

Tumbleweed
Tumbleweed spends most of his time with the merchant caravans much like his older brother. Tumbleweed wears no gold or silver to define himself as related to the royal Kobrian family, although he does have the same black tattoo over his eye as his brother.

Kaa
A Vyperian merchant who travels mostly to the northern cities.

Holly
A black furred Kitsune with vast magic levels, Holly's go-to spell is fire. She constantly travels Ruxar, searching for her lost friend.

Clover
Clover is a male Hykian who constantly is running across Ruxar delivering messages. He usually carries offers of alliance, but sometimes he carries other messages. He refuses to travel anywhere near Kitsunes.

Sundance
A Kiyon who lives in Sanctuary, a town in the Kiyane Tribelands, Sundance is part of the Kiyon group that believes alliance with the Kiyane is possible. She hasn't gotten very far, and her partner Buck died in the process for peace, but she is still seeking for the alliance.

Fang
Fang is a Lytone assassin for hire, who stalks the southern edge of Ruxar searching for new clients. He will sometimes travel north to reach his targets, or to find new clients, but very rarely.

Queen Coral
Queen Coral is the leader of the Sirens. Alternating between the land palace and the sea palace, Coral is known for her hatred of Vyperian and Kobrian. She is also a little obsessed with pearls]
