[Interest] The Freshman 15 - A Dragonblooded Student Game

05 Oct 2011, 18:57

Alright, this is an interest thread. Want your interest, your whole interest, and nothing but your interest.

Game takes place in the Heptagram, the isolated tower on an isolated island filled with demons, sorcery, and Sidereals. The players are a fresh batch of Dragonblooded, the freshmen starting their first year of schooling. Dragonblooded teenagers from all families, houses, and breeding have arrived, with minds fresh and waiting to learn more about sorcery and the supernatural. And then...the first night happened.

This game will be rather dark. People, hopefully mostly just NPCs, will likely end up dying. And the kids will be pretty mired in social interactions with their fellow classmates, teachers, and administrators. Not a ton of combat, since combat is rather dragging in a PbP. But if you're playing a Dragonblooded Social Game, you probably shouldn't mind. Mostly interest right now, I know there's already a character or two floating around. If you're in chat you know what's likely going on anyway. But yeah! Show some interest, and maybe give an idea of what you might play.

Eee~ I have two ideas, not sure which one would be better.

First is a pretty, pretty, pretty musically inclined Wood Aspect. He likes archery, flower arrangement and playing his sanxian so beautifully that Gods weep. He is not that concerned with the Immaculate faith but he does still love his nation.

Next is an investigatey, snarky, flirty water aspect who is engaged to a beautiful woman. They cheat on each other all the time and they both know it but she still makes a game of describing awful deaths for him when he cheats and he plays the part of being totally henpecked by her.

I have an idea for a character. She's a water aspect Ledaal who was a surprise exalt for her family. She has ADD pretty bad and so to focus she sews while she listens. She has a ridiculous almost stalker like crush on a Nellens, who isn't stupid enough to turn down her engagement offer flat out, but isn't sure that a 15 year old wife is the best choice for a wife out in Grayfalls. She believes that they are fated to be together and once she achieves her goal of being able to grow steelsilk without the need to bother essence spiders.

And Sparda, both ideas are awesome...you'll have to eenie meanie minie moe it.

This humble one approaches you as a lurker turned first poster. Please do not crush me under the mighty weight of your great Essence totals and Exalted epicry, and your Quintessence and Ambrosia collections shall increase by a...well, probably fairly tiny amount... :worship:

Anyway; I'm interested in breaking into an Exalted game if I can, and I'm awfully fond of Dragonblooded (*coughTenWindscough*). At the moment of going to press, I have a semi-solid idea for an Earth/Air Aspect teenage sorcery savant from either House Ledaal or House Ragara (likely Ragara) and would-be Magnificent Bastard, one of three brothers (and the last one the family expected to Exalt...), who's aiming for three things.

One, harnessing incredible sorcerous power undreamed of since the First Age. Odds are he won't make it, but hell, he's got time to spare to figure it out. It's fun living for an exhorbitantly long time (unless those Anathema poke their heads in. Stupid sexy Solars. >_>)

Two, learning to summon daemons. And no, not those kind (*coughneomahcough*), get your mind out of the gutter. Well, maybe a couple... Think more Tzeentch-style than Slaanesh.

And three, hone his skill at politics; the Realm's going to hell in a handbasket, and he wants to "fix" things. He's young, still thinks he's invincible and can change the world by his ownself. Oh how fast he'll be disabused of that notion, eh?

Personality-wise, he'd be an optimist at heart, though a bit naive. He's damn clever, savvy, and cunning as all get out, but not really *wise* per-se. High INT, Low WIS, if you get my meaning. Ultimately, he's a good guy, but his methods always end up taking one along the long, convoluted road that gets one into all kinds of hijinx and trouble instead of the straightforward route. And explosions. Lots and lots of explosions. He likes being subtle, but sometimes it's fun just to watch things go *BOOM*. I'm still building him, tho', so any advice would be welcome!

If you wish to know more, head to #thefreedomstone on the gryphon.magicstar.net server on IRC, that's where most of the talk tends to gather. Also, seems alright so far. I can play with only three people. Moving done, I should be able to have a more solid sign-up thread made up by Friday.

This a pbp because the facilitator is roughing it in the mountains and can't be sure when he'll have wifi, so pbp is best.

What were you thinking of playing? Sound like we could use an earth or a fire. ^_^
