It's been a long and hard 3 years since dragons disappeared from the world. Most dragon-dependant tribes have collapsed entirely, the clans of hunters have either dissolved or rebranded as pirates, and many outposts and villages lie abandoned. Some outsiders, unaffected by the turn of the age, have started to notice the vulnerable state of the Archipelago. And if that wasn't bad enough, the attackers seem to be ones of legend and impossible folk tales; Lycanwings.

You've heard the rumours, tales from survivors, maybe even lived through of one of these attacks yourself. The core story is always the same; a lone warrior in brightly coloured armour wandering into a struggling town or trading post, taking a monstrous half draconic form, and then tearing the place apart.

Few chiefs believe the nature of the attackers, even less are willing to stretch their defences even thinner than what they already are. So instead, a small group of volunteers have taken their own initiative to face the so-called Lycanwing threat before things pass the point of no return.

 

Rules and Stuff To Note

  • This is going to be an open-ended plot-heavy RP where people throw mysteries and loose ends at me and watch as I panic to fit them in and try to organically conclude all subplots! There'll be a lot of me walking that fine line between 'I have no idea whats gonna happen next' and 'please go do this exact sequence of actions so I can post a three thousand word monologue I prepared a month ago'
  • Since this is post-Hidden World events, there will be no dragons (I'll avoid spoilers as much as I can  just in case)
  • PM me your form before posting it so we can discuss things like secrets or plot integrations
  • Edit your track/reserve post when posting the form
  • I will post an example character who can be controlled by anyone and will act as a 'filler' and can be taken over by any late-comer (they will also be left fairly ambiguous so a claim can still edit to their likes a bit)
  • pls…. I beg of you,,,,, don’t just plant down an OC u've used in every other rp or fic without any changes…… its okay to edit them to the setting,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, make a new one from scratch if you're feeling truly wild and funky…..
  • Start details will be decided later

ALSO: If you're not interested in joining the RP but like the story idea, I'll be writing a fanfic version as the RP progresses!

 

Form- The version you initially post and the version you give to me will be different if your character has any secrets or unknowns about them you want to hide from other players.

Filler/Example Character

Name: Muldir Hossins

Basic Appearance: A largely built man, no older than 30, with scraggly bronze hair and a burn scar on his right jaw. Wears a red tunic and black leather pants, with a fur jacket and steel cuffed boots.

Short Personality: A calm and stable individual, who's ideals and beliefs are grounded firmly in reality and rarely strays far from what he knows to be true. But don't let his composure fool you, because this man can and will rant for hours at a time about the most mundane things.

Background: He doesn't talk much about his past, either out of refusal to share or simple disinterest.

Strengths/Weakness: Reliable but also incredibly predictable. Once he's made up his mind about an enemy, there is no pleading with him, no mercy or second chances given.

 

You may now reserve!

NIGHT FURY!!! GET DOWN!!!!!

Alrighty, here's my very late form lol.

Name: Blizzard (Blizz) Vilulf (fun fact: when translated means 'warrior's will')

Basic apearance: Tall, with great muscle tone, but not a large man, has a scar down the right side of his face which he got freeing his dragon from hunters. Wears a black, dragon scale cape with orange and purple patterns on it; he got the scales from his dragon when the dragon shed them off, wears his fathers wrist gaurds which are made from rare red Screaming Death scales which was also his father's dragon until they both died in battle, he has a black short-sleaved shirt which is covered by a chain mail vest, he has black leather pants, and black leather boots which are plated with scales from his dragon and steel on the shin. His weapons are a gronkle iron shield with a Deathsong symbol painted on the front of it and his axe is a sinle sided axe with a small blade on the other side of the head and has a dragon carving in the metal and one the bottom of the handle a dagger can be taken out of it and used if needed.

Short personality: Tenatious, calm unless you get him on a day that he's tired, a quiet individual who doesn't talk much unless asked or if it is needed, stealthy can sneak past almost anyone, berserk in battle giving him his name Blizzard the Berserk because his attacks are like a blizzard hitting you all at once, believes that one day all the dragons will return and he can see his beloved Deathsong, Lyre again.

Background: Was born at sea in the middle of winter on a dragon hunters ship, after he was born his mother died and his original father blamed it on him for years, he decided at age 13 that he would run away the next time that his fathers ship was docked somewhere for the night and when he did he got away on a dingie, he was at sea for a week with only salt water to drink and stail crackers for food. Then one day he saw a draong flying over head, with a rider he shouted as loud as he could with the last little bit of energy he had and then passed out and fell into the ocean. He came to only once to see the dragon and his rider pull him from the ocean, when he awoke again he was in bed inside a warm house when he looked to his left and saw Stoik the Vast and Hiccup who had saved him. Hiccup taought him how to train dragons and that they were kind and didn't deserve to be trapped. One day while training his first dragon, Lyre, a viking named Bjorn Ironside visited the arena to see how Blizzard was doing they talked for a good hour then Blizzard told Bjorn how he got to Berk so Bjorn adopted him.

Strengths/weakness: Unpredictable in battle but has more offense than defence, stealthy, doesn't like to give up even if he knows he will lose, believes in no mercy especially towards dragon hunters and when he and biological father meet again Blizzard plans to slowly slaughter him for the death of Bjorn.

okay, since only 2 people

okay, since only 2 people have actually started talking to me about characters (and literally 1 person still working with me, havent heard from the other in a few days) I might move this to a Discord server to also get more players involved (and maybe enforce some table-top game mechanics/rules).

The twins stole my subject, Mist is chasing them.

Name: Cari Stromfeild

Description: Light blue hair put up in a long braid, green eyes, about 5 feet 10 inches. Usually wears a short sleeved blue shirt to match her hair, black pants, and a light gray skirt. Has twin scars on both arms.

Background: Has amnesia. Believed to be a victim of a Lycanwing attack. Was found by a man who claimed to be her uncle, but ambushed her a few days later and was killed in the following knife fight.

Personality: Loud and talkative, but only as a cover-up for the insecurity of not having any memories, and often comes across as brash and rude. Has a habit of regaining snippets of her memory at the worst times.

Strengths/Weakness: Has a hard time not talking. Can find plants that are useful quite easily, and is amazing at picking locks. However, Cari is terrible at tracking, and doesn't follow orders very well.

Weapon: Bow and Arrow

(i liVE) (lets start this thing finally)

It’s a cloudy, early summer morning here on Berserker Island, seabirds resting in the trees and on the rocky shores, various farm animals grazing the hills, and people in the village going about their business as usual. They’ve done well, all things considered, one of the stronger tribes out of those who remain, and do what they can to help close friends and neighbours. A welcoming open port is still hard to come by, many fearing the worst from unknown sails.

Without fear of dragons, pirates infest the oceans now. Many were once part of Hunter clans, and already know the trade, others simply desperate scavengers fleeing collapsed tribes. The Defenders were the first to go, which everyone saw coming. The Wingmaidens followed soon after, the Outcasts lasted no more than a year, and Berk almost followed them. The once proud and vast dragon tribe lies on the verge of ruin, barely scraping by with each passing winter, but rumours have it they seem to be getting back on their feet.

These Lycanwings threaten all of this. Villages that rely on a select few trading posts will be crippled if just the wrong one gets hit. An outpost was completely abandoned after a shipment failed to dock on time, its wreck washing up on the shores a week later. Attacks are few and far in between, but that just makes them all the more terrifying; no one can predict where the next one will be, or when.

Which is why the group is here, waiting anxiously on the deck of a ship that has served you well the last few months. While resting at an inn, a raven delivered message of a suspected Lycanwing attack on a nearby trading island. Now, you’re waiting for the supplies you came here for to be delivered, and then the ship is off to investigate and try to finally get a proper lead on what’s really destroying the Archipelago.

Here we come!!!

I was re-stringing my bow below deck when I heard someone running above. I made it up just in time to see a small boy running down the gangplack. A few feet away, Blizz Viluf was looking at a peice of paper.

"What is it? Supplies gonna be another day? I really hope not. Any idea where everyone else is?" I said, hoping my voice didn't betray the dread I had knotting in my stomach.

Blizz shrugged and handed the paper to me. "Another attack."

"That's the second one this month." I read through it once, then again. Suddenly, I heard a man's voice calling,

"Steady to the northwest, boys!"

"Cari?" I heard Blizz call, and I blinked. I couldn't remember dropping the paper or moving, but I must have, because my hands were clutching my head and the paper fluttered in the wind beneath my boot.

"Another memory flash." I explained quietly. A huge headache was already starting.

aboutta bounce and focus solely on the fic version at this rate

((does 5 and a half days seem like long enough to wait for literally anyone else to post? high-key calling all o yall out [EXCEPT annie. you're doing amazing] how does this keep happening))

 

By about late afternoon Muldir finally gets back with several crates and bags, has the team dump them into the hold as quickly as possible, and you're off sailing.

It's still weird to have such an empty sea. Dorsal fins sometimes get greeted with an excited gasp followed by dissapointment as they're mistaken for a row of spines. Light off a dolphins tail is still a sight to see, but not the same as iridescent scales on a great wing.

It's at least a full days journey to the trading post. With a good tailwind, you might reach it by daybreak. What do you do while you wait?

((example prompts can be talking to a certain team member, checking supplies, ship maintainance, etc. Just tell me what your character wants to do and we play out the scene))

Probably too late but anyway...

After making sure that Cari was OK, I went below deck to sharpen my axe in case I needed to use it. While sharpening the axe I began to mumble to myself: "I wish the dragons were still here, we would already be there by now..." As I continued to mumble, Muldir came below deck to see who was done therewho startled me when I looked up.

"Could you knock next time please?"

So after the decisve train

So after the decisve train wreck this became I'm thinking of rebooting this and clearing all spots and updating stuff. If anyone here is genuinely interested in rejoining this, and will be able to post more than once a week, please say so. If you don't believe you'll be able to actually participate, don't join just for the sake of wanting to or having that little moment of satisfaction of claiming a spot.
