[OOC]Obake Blade

Note: FANTASY RP

But…Grandfather…” the child murmured, “Why is there night? If the gods gave us the sun to light the world and to allow us to survive, why do they have to take it away and leave the dark behind?”

The old man chuckled, tucking away the scroll he had been writing in and turning to his young grandson that sat in his lap. “It happens, Kyo, not because of the gods, but because of their enemies.”

“The gods have enemies?”

“Indeed, very terrible enemies.”

“What kinds?”

“All sorts, curious one.” Grandfather answered, “Demons, monsters, but the most dangerous of all are ones that are the most like them. Spirits. Ghosts.”

“Ghosts are bad? But we pray to the spirits of our ancestors…”

“Ah, but these ghosts are not the ancestors of human beings like us. They are the forms of powerful demons that have left the realm of the living, but have escaped the power of the gods and taken form on the Earth again.”

They’re the ones that made the sky dark?”

“Yes, they are. There was a time, long ago, when the sky was always dark…” Grandfather pulled out a very thick scroll that had been resting alongside the one he had put away previously. It took him only moments to find the section he wanted.

“The ghosts and demons ran free across our land…” he said, pointing to an inked picture or shadowy monsters with glowing eyes that had been inscribed on the aged papyrus, “Across all the Earth. Their dark powers forced the sun from the sky and made the sky dark, even during the high part of noon.”

“They could do that??”

“I’m afraid so.”

“But then…then the gods came down and beat them up, didn’t they!” the child said, triumphant in his guess. “That’s why the sun’s back!”

Grandfather smiled. “Something like that…” he said, finding a new place in the scroll. Now there was an illustration of a warrior, garbed in priestess robes and sparkling white armor, a fierce-looking blade in her hand filled the papyrus scroll, dark shapes like wraiths ringing her figure.

“The gods could not descend from the Heavens.” Grandfather explained, “They feared that, if they were to visit Earth, they might be consumed by demon spirits and become evil. So, they sent us someone who was immune to such effects. A human. A woman. A priestess.”

The old man’s eyes became soft, now, as he looked upon the picture. “Her name was Obakenare, and she was a miko of unprecedented power. The legend is unclear of how the event happened, but not long after the shrine she was assigned to was destroyed by demons, the gods sent her a blessed sword. The blade was made of the purest silver, its edges rumored to be inscathable and infinitely sharp. She named it the Obake Blade.

“With the sword at her side, Obakenare was able to lead a campaign against the monsters, the first to ever be successful. She purified much of the land within months, forcing the demons and ghosts ever backward.

“Eventually, the priestess found that she was unable to continue her fight – there was no where left for the devils to run, and they had banded to make a last stand against her. She knew time was waning, and her health was failing. And so, as a last effort, she locked the monsters away in another realm, called Kuro.”

Grandfather looked very seriously at his grandson, turning the child around so he could look him full in the eye.

“Understand this, Kyo,” he addressed him, “The spell that guards the gates to the Kuro Realm must always remain intact. If the gates were to open, the ghosts and demons would return to Earth, and the sun will again disappear. That cannot be allowed to happen.”

“Yes, Grandfather.” the child said, nodding. His young eyes were glossed over in wonderment at his grandfather’s story.

A human that could fight what the gods could not…

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Two decades have passed since that fateful day. My grandfather was killed only two years after he told me that story. Who the murderers were or their intentions and motives still remain a mystery to me, but I have sworn since that day that I would find the perpetrators and exact my revenge. And ever since then, the same warning has played again and again in my mind.

The spell that guards the gates to the Kuro Realm must always remain intact.

There are rumors, now, that just such a thing is coming to pass. The great, black iron gates that stand at the very edge of the Earth still remain closed, its locks rusted over from the hundreds of years that have passed since they were erected. But a darkness; an almost tangible evil has begun to seep from the gates. Lands near the gates have gone permanently black, the life that once thrived on its soil either dead or dying. It is believed that only the power of the Obake Blade could renew the spell and seal the doors for another millennia.

However, the exact location of the Obake Blade is unknown.

I have reason to believe that my grandfather knew of the sword’s resting place, but whatever he knew either died with him or was burned in the fire his killers lit. I have but one piece of information: a scrap of the scroll that he had shown me so long ago.

Even the scrap gives me very little to go on. It depicts a blade – what I can only guess to be the sacred sword – resting among tongues of fire. There is script that lines the sides, but it is a language unknown to me. I have taken it to several historians and professionals, and each have given me the same, unsure answer. It is rumored that there is a great soothsayer in a distant city that can translate the mysterious writing. She will be my next stop.

The city is called Ryuu-Tokai, and it is across the sea. A caravan leaves from Akebono tonight – I have my things packed and ready.

Maybe the gates are still fully intact, and this is all nothing but rumor. All I know is that I cannot live my life until I have avenged my grandfather’s. And I have a feeling that this quest to find the Obake Blade will take me just where I need to go.

Kyo Rurouni
Akebono
14th day of the dragon month, 235th year of the Age of the Sun


-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Those of you who join in the RP will be some of the occupants of the caravan to Ryuu-Tokai. During the time of the journey, your characters will eventually bond with each other and with Kyo, thus leaving open the option for you to join him in his quest for the Obake Blade. Sorry guys, but if you’re going to be in the RP, you kinda need to join him.

The caravan to Ryuu-Tokai is going to be used as a time for character relations and personalities to be formed and explored. By the time that the script on Kyo’s scrap of scroll is deciphered, I’m hoping for everyone to have a pretty good idea of who everyone else’s characters are.

Rules:

Sorry guys, but the playable races in this RP is kept strictly to humans. There are no elves, dwarves, and no cross breeds. And don’t ask me for a demon or ghost character. That’s, again, out of the question.

Keep to the basic rules of RPing. No godmodding, no charry control (unless given permission), yada yada yada…

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Land:

- The land is known simply as the The Continent
- East: the Gin Sea; several hundred islands with a few cities line the coast; Ryu-Tokkai a harbor of one of the most easterly islands
-North: the lands north grow increasingly colder, and stretch to the very edge of the Earth, where the sky quite literally touches the land, and you can go no further. The gate to the Kuro Realm can be found here
-West: mountainous, spread with various volcanoes
-South: the breadbasket of the Continent, the south is the most heavily populated section of the land, made up of several prosperous cities and countless villages and plantations
-There is no true government on the Continent – rather, the land functions as groups of many unofficial city-states


If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them. I will post the character sheet for Kyo in a moment.

Current Game: Brotherhood
Name: Toa Firespitter
Age: 24
Gender: Male
Occupation: Pyromacer (Fire Elemetalist)
Personality: Toa is a friendly person who enjoys traveling with other people and making jokes. He does have somewhat of a firery part in his attitude, since he'll take on anything that challenges him. That can get him more than he can chew at times.
Appearance: http://img444.imageshack.us/img444/6075/frontni9.jpg
Weaponry: Fire Staff, Fire Magic
Bio: Coming from the lands of the West where there were multiple volcanos, he loves warm climates and hates water, not even knowing how to swim. He came from a large family where it was a rare circumstance to be alone at most times, so when he was sent off to be trained as an elementalist like some of his brothers and sisters, he was extremely homesick for quite a while. After graduating from under his mentor, he was unsure as to what to do. He thought about going home, but then that would just be a waste of what he had just learned since the region around his home generally never had any trouble, let alone the need for an elementalist. So he decided to take a tour of the continent before deciding what to do with his life now. He was trained in the south, so he reluctantly went east towards and over the water, taking on whatever odd jobs he could find.

Double t3h w00t ^.^ Now we've got two characters!

And for those that were curious, a lot of these names are Japanese:

Obake - Ghost
-na is a suffix that means 'no'. Therefore, Obakenare is a spin off of 'no ghost'
Miko - priestess
Kuro - dark, evil
Ryuu - dragon
Tokai - city
Akebono - morning, dawn, beginning
Kyo - stubborn
Rurouni - vagabond, wanderer *note: this is not a true word in the Japanese vocabulary. It was actually created from a root by the creator of the anime Rurouni Kenshin

I told myself I'd not get involved in one of these again, but what the hey. This RP actually seems thought-out and worthwhile. (And of course the presence of GW-type atmosphere had absolutely nothing to do with me joining. >.>) So here goes nothing...

Name: Carwyn Stormchild

Age: 21

Gender: Male

Occupation: Ranger

Appearance: Brown leather leggings and boots, beige tunic made of soft linen, long brown overcoat. zomg pic

Personality: Carwyn is an archer by trade and pretty darn good at his job. His marksmanship is excellent, as such he has a healthy enough ego. He spent his youth in the mountains, thus is eager to venture out into the world. Around others, he is polite and affable. He enjoys being the joker and putting people at ease.

Weaponry: His bows, a shortbow and a longbow of his own crafting.




have a suggestion for the lf poll? pm me

Yeah Eragon fan XD, and that's what i was meaning, like their blade is quite short and pointy like a scimitar and then the handle is curved and golden with two spikes coming out of one part of the top of the handle.

Sorry i didn't make it clear.

Looks like this is gonna be active. I think I'll use Even Crossblade, a character of mine actually for a book, in a different fantasy world. But I can cheat a little here, and if you wanna get technical, he got sucked into another dimension. I swear, that is the most useful plot device EVER.

Even Crossblade

Age: 35

Occupation: Pirate

Weaponry: Four dire axes. One for each hand, and two spares on his back.

Bio: Even is a swashbuckling pirate, canstantly making under-the-table deals. He wears black tripeak hats, which frequently get broken. He was hired for this mission because he was told the party would need someone who knew about sailing- and of course, because he was promised plenty of pay.

Steven your sig is just AWSOME.
Oh, and if you do that "Elven" make idea, spell it "Elvin". Just my opinion.


"The beauty and genius of a work of film may be reconceived, though its first material expression be destroyed; a vanished fiction may yet again inspire the screenplay-writer; but when the last individual of a race of living directors, of artists, breathes no more, another heaven and another earth must pass before such a one can be again." -William Beebe, modified in memorial of the twentieth century

An Elvin make sounds better than an actual Elvin blade. That works ^.^

And I only just noticed that Steven's character had the same last name as mine and Jason's using my charry's first name as a last name And I wasn't really expecting a pirate character, Relenoz, but it sounds good

Name: Amane Hideyoshi
Age: 24
Gender: Male
Occupation: Mercenary (calls himself a Hero-for-Hire)
Personality: Though his heart is in the right place, Amane is overconfident in his own abilities, sometimes to the point of endangering those around him.
Weaponry: Bloodstained Katana, Bladed Shield
Appearance: This guy:

but with more Asian-style facial features
I may disappear from the RP for good however. I've had trouble being in more than one RP at a time before.

@Alkonium--thanks for the info. And I like the way your character stowed away on the wagon. Clever! Now he can eavesdrop on all of the conversations around him.


@Relenzo2--Dude?? Where is your character? On the floor of the cantina tossing rocks in his hat?? We're only now just getting our gear together and heading to the gates of the city.

I meant to join much earlier today... but I was still trying to work out my character. (it's taken me all day to post! )


Name: Takara

Age: 28

Gender: female

Occupation: n/a

Personality: Takara is fiercely independent, but at the same time, she can be extremely loyal if she finds someone worthy of her trust.

Weaponry: one sword (katana style), one long knife

Appearance: Takara stands at 5' 7" in height, has pure black hair, and dark blue eyes. A small white inch and a half long scar runs diagonally along her left cheek. She wears a sleeveless black 'short dress' style top, black trousers, tall black boots, and black elbow-length gloves.

History: Takara's father always wanted a son. But when his first and only child was a daughter, he was not disappointed. Instead, he named her 'my Takara', his Treasure and as soon as she was old enough, he began teaching her as he would have taught a son the ways of the wandering warrior.

For the early part of her life, Takara went wherever her father went. They wandered together and he continued to teach her. At sixteen years of age, Takara fell in love and married, leaving her father to settle with her husband. Late that year, she became pregnant. A month before she gave birth, her husband was killed and she returned to her father.

Takara gave birth to a son and named him Katsuro. When he was old enough to survive without her, she left him with her father, promising to return. Katsuro was three years old at the time. Takara returned a year later to retrieve her son and they left her father together.

As Katsuro grew, he became more and more his mother's son, learning to fight and hunt by watching her work. When he turned eight, Takara gave him a small slingshot and a dagger of his own. Now, at eleven years of age, he still carries the slingshot, but has traded the dagger for a longer blade. As ammunition for the slingshot, he carries a pouch of stones. His clothing resembles his mother's in the fact that it's all black. However, it is distinctly male clothing.

Takara and Katsuro are intent on traveling with the caravan, for Takara's father has sent word he wants them to meet him at its destination.

Hope I'm not to late , but here's my character sheet .

Name: Bora Cho

Age: 21

Gender: male

Occupation: Drunken Master Fighting style Monk

Personality: When ale and wine are within reach , he is a benolavent man , talkative and not shy . When Sober , he tranforms into a nagging , pesty bastard .

Weaponry: short bamboo stick .

Appearance: He has the looks of a vagabond , long sleazy dark hair that reaches his shoulder and small beard . He has one green eye and one blue .
He is about 1.75 m heigh . His clothes are tattered and dirty .


History: Bora Cho was given away to a cloister when he was just a small boy . The monks teached him many forms of martial arts , lessons in writing ,
story telling and history . Allthough his education was short lived , due to Bora Chos rebel nature . At about the age of 14 he was thrown out because
of the fire he had started in the dormentories . Caused by a small rocket , sadly his firework flew straight into the wooden roof , exploded with a bang
and started to burn .

After that Bora Cho wandered around the county , untill he found old Master Gugoko . When the Master heard his story , he laughed and said that Bora Cho
should not be so sad . He told the young boy that those dry monks where to centered in their small world , they missed the bigger picture and many of
the good things of live . And so young Bora Cho became a new apprentice , his half finished skills in martial arts where completed with new techniques .
So time passed on , Bora Cho grew bigger and saddly Master Gugoko older . Last spring , Bora Cho , at the 20 ,found his Master dead in bed .

Saddend he burned his Master and threw his ashes into the wind . After the short ceremony , Bora Cho made his backpack and left the hut he had lived for
so long . He walked away ,looking for som

Alright, in case you guys haven't noticed yet, I have zero tolerance for noob moves like having your character be spontaineously attacked by fifty robbers and being able to take them out single handedly! I don't care if your character is a freaking samurai, that is never going to happen! NO ONE is that invincible.

Also, stunts like that can completely and totally throw off the plot of the RP! I know that a lot of the RPs on LF have extremely loose plots, but I'd actually like to keep tabs on one for once. I'm not saying that your characters can't do anything on their own, but getting attacked by a group of more than three or four people, then plan to have yourself kidnapped by the group, that is completely unexceptable.

I'm sorry if I'm coming across too harsh, but, as I said above, I have absolutely zero tolerance for things like this. So n00bs, consider this your crash-course.

I thought all those bandits appearing and attacking someone was a bit much myself, but I figured I should do something about M_A's char being dragged away. I tried to make it clear that I only fought a small group of bandits, and I even got hurt in the bargain. Was that too much? Otherwise, I'll edit, of course.



There's a bit of the shadowy side in all of us.

Except those freakazoid Jedi nutcases.

Haha! I love being called a noob, means I have a better imagination than most! But seriously, even I know I over did it, sorry about that FFWM12, that's what you call a serious case of boredom. Plus I was delerious from a long day. I changed the post where my guy fought the bandits, I drastically reduced the number, hope you'll forgive me FFWM12, wont happen again.

As for being kidnapped, well I knew I'd be saved, I even successfully predicted it'd be Dark_Lady's character! Why do you think I said, the weight of his armor and size slowed them down; so they wouldn't get far-fast before they were slaughtered!

It's alright, MA, as long as it doesn't happen again. Getting attacked by a few is reasonable. A small army is not <.<

And Dark_Lady, your post was fine. There's no need to really edit anything for either of you -- what's done is done, and we'll just move on.

Right, so FFWM12 said she's going to be away for the weekend. And due to other committments, my posting will be rather erratic, if at all, this weekend as well.

But don't anybody pack up the caravan and leave without us! We'll be back!

Well, i guess it couldn't have come at a better time. I'm kinda late in the RP due to time-zones and other comitments.
