View Full Version : DDO/Dragon Age: Deathstage

07-25-2009, 02:56 PM

(THREADMASTER'S NOTE: This roleplay adventure combines the three races and the realm of Dragon Age: Origins with some of the more detailed options of Dungeons and Dragons Online. Here are the basics of the setting...)

REALM: Ferelden (Dragon Age)
RACES: Dwarf, Elf, Human (Dragon Age), Drow (DDO)
CLASSES: Mage, Rogue, Warrior (Dragon Age), Cleric, Paladin, Ranger (DDO)
RELIGION/FAITH: Chantry (Dragon Age), D & D/DDO Deities (DDO)

STORYLINE: All mortals fear the Deathstage--the end of the world, and the end of time as they know it. Never before has Ferelden faced such a crisis, not even when the Blight infiltrated the realm via the hubris of men. The Grey Wardens were victorious and fought them off, but who can truly fight floods, plagues, earthquakes, famines, and a realm-wide war? These things have been happening all over Ferelden, and what is worse, the races of the realm have been conspiring against one another instead of allying with each other. They believe each other to be instruments of the Deathstage and of their own gods, rather than working for the salvation of all.

One man, a devout Cleric of the Chantry, and his followers especially believe themselves to be the harbingers of the end of the world. They are violent extremists, and they will stop at nothing to bring about the reckoning that they believe the world deserves. Either Ferelden will be saved through the shedding of the blood of all evildoers, or Ferelden will be damned through sparing them. Can one of this man's contemporaries, a young Human Paladin lass, and her brothers and sisters-in-arms turn the tide--and turn back the Deathstage? Or, is it already too late, being that the Chantry's chosen sides?

Part One is where we post a one-post ORIGIN STORY for our characters! :)

Hmm..this looks like fun:D

Name: Razael Krahl

Gender: Male

Race: Human

Age: 29

Class: Warrior\Conquerer

Appearance: 6'5' in heighth, very muscular, with black hair and brown eyes. He has some unshaved stubble on his face, and has a large red scar running from his lips to his right eye. He usually wears a specially made set of black armor, complete with black helmet that completely covers his head. Usually has his weapons in the open.

Allied With: He allies himself with just about anyone that he deems worthy{which is rare}. When he is not fighting with someone else's army, he is in control of a small private army around the size of 2 companies. These men under him are some of the best soldiers in the land, hand-picked and trained by Razael himself.

Goal: To become the most powerful warlord in the land, he uses all means necessary to achieve this goal.

Armor: Thick, black, heavy armor, complete with a helmet that covers his entire head. He also sports a black shield, which bears the crest of his family, The Soaring Falcon.

Weapons: He carries a claimor that belonged to his father, which also bears the family crest. He also has two small, Dwarven, throwing axes, attached to a belt. He also carries a strange projectile weapon that uses black powder. Also carries two metal balls with the same black powder inside of them. These explode on contact with fire, he is considered a strange and dark Wizard due to his tools that dealt out destruction.

Specializes in: Fighting, engineering, pure destruction, an early phase of explosives, but has no magic ability whatsoever.

Deity: None, he believes purely in the sheer power of the war machine, seeing that that is the only way to achieve complete power over everything.

Strengths: Very strong, and is a brilliant tactician. Never gives up, and has an amazing ability that allows him to never lose focus.

Weakness: Arrogant, has no sense of morality when it comes to fighting. He is also blind in his right eye{due to the scar}, he is also insecure, and therefore is distrusting almost to the point of paranoia.

Alignment: Unpredicable nuetral

I like it. It's always war with you, isn't it, ComQ? :D

07-27-2009, 07:07 PM
Yes, so it seems:D The warlords are always very interesting to portray!:D

07-27-2009, 07:10 PM
Yeah, but you still didn't say you were evil. I'm thinking about being making myself evil or something.

07-27-2009, 07:22 PM
I need at least SOMEBODY to be on Lucien Drathart's side! *LOL* Otherwise, this story is going to be very short when Shakhmaty and her allies totally "checkmate" him. :P

07-27-2009, 08:21 PM
I was thinking about progressively turning evil, but still, that doesn't really help Drathart much....

07-27-2009, 08:24 PM
Don't worry. Drathart will take a special...interest in you. ;P Think Kreia and pawn...

07-27-2009, 08:43 PM
I see. :D Meanwhile, we have ComQ's crusading warlord....
