Oh, Arkillian, that's excellent! We DO need an Alexander (and I'm a fan of gender-bending sometimes as well, as evidenced by my made-up pirate queen villain!)
I think we need a couple more good guys to even things out, so please tell your friends everyone!!
Since we don't know everything about TSL yet -- as much as I would love to do our RP in that timeline.... we opted to go with the AGDI timeline -- which everyone can look at it here
if there's any questions. I know it isn't canon, but we were thinking (if I recall correctly) that it ties the stories more together and is very well-known in the fan community even though it isn't canon.
We did want to begin after KQ7 -- I think we wanted to not include MoE? (It's hard to recall since most of the voting on this happened just before the C&D!)
As for the plot, we've worked some things together but there's much more plotting to be done!
The idea is that the Black Cloak Society is basically launching an assault on the whole of the world -- seeing as how they keep being individually defeated, this makes a certain amount of sense. Here's what we've discussed:
--The Land of the Green Isles: Alhazred is in prison, not making too much trouble (until someone decides to play him anyways!) but Elsa Valiash, the Sea Scourge, (her bio is on the first page of this thread) is besieging the islands with her fleet of pirates.
--Kolyma is perhaps dealing with the repercussions of Caldaur leaving the organization, and we hadn't decided much else.
--Llewdor we thought probably had it's leadership replaced by a new Black Cloak member since Manannan's defeat.
--With both Manannan and Hagatha suffering from "feline afflictions" and with no human magic able to help them, we'd thought maybe they'd turn to fairy magic -- in Tamir.
--I_am_so_nifty's villain Renwick is attempting to create a base of operations in Serenia, so he can begin to take over that land as well.
Now when this thread began, we didn't know what the Item the Father was after was. KQ3 Redux revealed that -- but I'm thinking since it was like, what, a pair of hands from a statue? I think there's more to the Item. Perhaps it was broken into pieces and even though the hands were destroyed, the Father may still be looking for other parts. (I'm thinking, statue of Legenimor?)
I_am_so_nifty had mentioned the possibility that some baddies may be trying to resurrect some deceased baddies as well, so if anyone's interested in them.... feel free to speak up!
Anyways, our cast list:Good Guys
-Deloria: DeloriaBad Guys
-The Father: Cray
-Elsa Valiash: Cray
-Renwick: I_am_so_niftyNeutral Guys
So, we actually are pretty even, aren't we? Shall we start then?
I am going to make a separate thread for in-character stuff, and we'll leave this one as out of character.
