After creating a very successful RP set in the future of Star Wars, I've decided to go in the other direction, and write one set in the distant past, at a time in which Coruscant isn't even as advanced as the real world is now. The inspiration for this was The Doctor's RP Warriors of the Force, and the Lord of the Rings films, of which my brother recently bought the Extended Editions on DVD. You can play as one of two warring factions: The Taung: the genetic ancestors of the Mandalorian Species, and the Zhell: the genetic ancestors of the human race. Because this story is set before electrical power was invented on Coruscant, there are no lightsabers, no blasters, and definitely no droids. The only weapons are a sword, a dagger, an axe, a warhammer, a bow, a crossbow, a Staff of Ashla, and a Bogan Truncheon. If you decide to play as the Zhell, you will have the choice between a Warrior, an Archer, or a Monk of Ashla, which is the predecessor to the Jedi, and if you play as the Taung, you have a choice between a Berserker, a Ranged Assassin, or a Voice of Bogan. A may also combine classes, but you will have to focus on your primary, as well as have the appearance of such. Here is the base for the character sheet:

Name:
Faction:
Gender:
Class:
Weapon:
Birthplace:
Age:
Backstory:

Name: Verax Kaltas
Faction: Zhell
Gender: Male
Class: Warrior/Priest of Ashla
Weapon: Twin Phrik Shortswords
Birthplace: The Manarai Mountains
Age: 21
Backstory: Born to one of the finest Zhell Warriors and a Priestess of Ashla, Verax has followed in the footsteps of both his parents. When they were slain by Taung Assassins, he swore vengeance against the Taung, and now leads the Zhell in battle, although is often with a small group of other Zhell to fight where a sending a large army would be unwise.

Name: Vorin Rek
Faction: Taung
Gender: Male
Class: Berserker
Weapon: two-handed axe and a gladius (short sword)
Birthplace: Unknown
Age: 17 (if they don't have electricity though most likely start fight young, but if anyone has a problem with it I'll change it.)
Backstory: Rek was born to a moderately well-off Taung family. He was considered a decent fighter, but never did anything worthy of recongition until he came back from a hunt to find his village under attack. He saw his parents killed by four humans, and was driven into a frenzy, killing the four men and taking down three others with his hunting party before the humans left. Since then he has become an eager soldier, joining many missions, although he is somewhat impatient and sarcastic.

This is gonna be the first RP I've ever joined, feel free to yell at me for doing something wrong. :)

Edit: I'm also very suggestible, feel free to boss me around.

Name: Chris Thorpe
Faction:Taung
Gender:Male
Class:Ranged Assassin
Weapon:Bow, katana, daggers
Birthplace: Dxun
Age:20
Backstory: Chris Thorpe's biological parents sent him to a training camp and never came back for him. There he learned much about battle. His advanced speed, agility, and sword fighting abilities make him great at close range combat, though he isn't stong enough to take on large enemies at close range. For these jobs Chris uses his accuracy to hit his opponents weak spots with his bow. He always tries to be in a position of advantage in a fight.

^I don't want to be a troll, but they don't even have electricity and they're on Coruscant, I'd be really surprised if someone could walk from Dxun all the way to Coruscant. :p
Edit 1: But then again he does know advanced speed techniques..
Edit 2: I just noticed this: There isn't a healer class.
Edit 3: I don't know too much about the Taung, but whenever I think of them I keep on thinking of guys like the Fremen in Dune. Since this is your RP Alkonium, could you give us your vision on what they are?

Look em up on Wikipedia, not alot of information. They look like total bad asses though.
(In my upcoming story I plan to post the main character is a Taung.)

True that you are, i'm very interested in learning more about the Taungs. Can't find crap about them on the net. Alkonium's RP it is and I can't wait to hear ideas.

Well, I was thinking that the Zhell fortresses would be shaped like isosceles triangles from above, and at the middle of the non-identical side is a tall tower, which is meant to be reminiscent of a Star Destroyer, the Taung helmets have T-shaped eye holes, reminiscent of the Mandalorian helmets, and other than that I can tell you that is that this is going to be look very much like our own Medieval period.
