Age of Ice - Just Released [Beta]
« on: June 24, 2013, 07:51 pm »


There was once a wonderful age of prosperity in the land of Actar. There was once an age where magic was used freely, without restraint. Not now. There are 7 houses of Actar, all royalty. They bicker when they obviously cannot see what is coming, or what may already be there...

But there is hope. Some younger members of the houses, not the tired old men and woman that grow weary of the fights with other houses, but the others who still enjoy the company of the other houses, may be able to defend the land and make peace. Of course, they may not.

But the land is growing colder. Much colder. It used to be hot a lot of the time, but now there is barely a day that you won't see a cool breeze. Most people enjoy this, but they don't realize what it means. Of course, what could it mean?






You'll find out if you join. ;)
Simply fill out this application when you want to join:

Character Name:
Weapon of Choice: (Choose from any weapon type, you'll get a confirm if it's valid)
House:
Magical Field:

Weapons can be practically anything, except for inappropriate stuff.
There are 7 houses, listed below.

Vytor
Eýthril
Ilvanor
Arryn
Relth
Astan
Diirstan

There are 4 schools of magic to choose from:

Void - The most powerful, some say. The void is a source of power that can be dangerous, but wonderful as well. It can make or remove anything from existence-- but all these effects are reversible.

Chronal - Also, some say, the most powerful school. Students of this school can reverse time, go forward in it, and do many things with their chronal power. They can also use time to alter things slightly, or change events from history completely!

Elemental - The most flashy school. Students of the Elements can use the powers of Fire, Water, Wind, Earth, and all their related sub-elements and combined elements such as Storm and Ice. This is the best school if you're aiming for better combat potential, but it might not serve you well in altering things.

Enchantment - This school focuses on charms, enchantments, and things like that. Good for those pursuing a career in weapon-craft, or those of the more... devious type.

Each school has different effects.

Combat

Combat is done simply:

A damage variable for each weapon and a hit chance. Of course, different weapons have different special effects and damage variables/hit chances.
Also there are critical chances, which will cause double damage and another roll, which may allow for infinite crits! :o

There are many weapons, but here's a list of all ones made so far:

Sword
Mace
Spear
Axe
Pike
Knife
Staff (Normal)
Wand
Staff (Mage)
Bow

And finally, the most basic:

Hand-to-Hand. These all have their advantages and disadvantages.

Also, all weapons except for Hand-to-Hand come in ranks. This part is based off of Nexus, but Windeh let me, okay? xP The ranks are:

Wood
Iron
Mythril
Crystal
Voiridium

Each rank will have different stats. Wood is the worst and Voiridium is the best.

To do an action, you must write how you do it. The success of the action depends on how well you wrote it. For example, if you were running from a dragon, you must write a piece about what you do. Something like "I run from the dragon." would not get you very far and you would probably be killed by the dragon. If you wrote a small detailed sentence, you would have better success. If you wrote a detailed, epic, paragraph, then you would have a very high chance of escaping. The longer and more detailed the description, the better. You can also write what happens as you run, but no just saying "I find gold or an escape route". It has to be something that affects you either very slightly on the good side, neutral, or bad. As said before, you can't just have a miracle from heaven happen.

House Backstories

Vytor:
The house of Vytor is a secretive but very intelligent house. They have been around since the start, and they founded Actar. There's almost nothing that can stop them when they get their plans rolling. This house is for those of you who want to be secretive swordmages.

Eýthril:
The house of Eýthril has been around only for about 10 generations, but it rose to power fast as it helped Actar, and managed to conquer many territories from the surrounding countries. They are nobles, but they also have the nerve to fight. This house is good for those who want to play an archer-swordsman hero while still keeping the famous factor as a big advantage.

Ilvanor:
Men of the woods since birth, nobles of the house of Ilvanor are great with bows, at least most the time. They have also been a slightly strange house, as some say they have been in the Forest of the Dead. There lies a great spirit. But no matter. They are still part of Actar's nobility, and they'll stay that way...

at least until another house has them banished for heresy. This house is good for necromancer-rangers.

Arryn:
The most powerful house except for Eýthiril, this house also has many factors of nobility. They are less of the warrior type and more of the ruler type. They were one of the founding houses along with Vytor. Although they may not be as much of noble heros as Eýthril, they're still good fighters. Most of the older ones get a little too driven by wrath sometimes, though. This house is good for charismatic people.

Relth:
The house of Relth is a small one. They may not be the largest, in size or in population, but they make for excellent manipulators and thieves. They have stolen from other houses many a time, and they aren't about to stop with that. This house is good for those evil politicians.

Astan:
The house of Astan is a magic-based one. They are great with all types of magic, and they also can summon many things to aid them in battle. Don't mess with one in politics either, as they make master debaters. You make a point, they'll shoot it down in less than a second. They make a point, you'll find it hard to shoot it down. This house is good for those of you who want to be magocrats.

Diirstan:
This house is a pious-ish house, and they aren't afraid to smite their enemies with divine magic. They use many things a heavy fighter would, and they also use magic. Effectively they're punishing clerics. This house is good for those who want to attack their enemies with the power of a god.

Quests are split into two different branches: Side and Main. The sidequests are available to anyone, anytime, even after someone else has already completed them. However, 1 reward per person per sidequest. Main story quests are available only once. There will eventually be a restart.

Reward: Old Walking Stick

Your Average Fetch Quest 2: Johst Folar needs a walking stick for his journey to the mountains. It'll take him a while to do this, so he'll need something to rest on when he can't sit down. Give Johst Folar the 'Old Walking Stick' to complete this quest.
Reward: Weathered Sword

Your Average Fetch Quest 3: Isti, a child, wants to have an old blunt sword to play with while he's with his friends. Return the 'Weathered Sword' to Isti to complete this quest.
Reward: Isti's Ring

Your Average Fetch Quest 4: Calstan from the market wants a certain ring. It looks just like Isti's ring, it probably is. Return 'Isti's Ring' to Calstan to complete this quest.

Crafting Weapons and Buying materials/weapons

To craft a weapon, you must have enough of the material and a working forge. Materials can be found through gathering. The only buyable materials are Wood and Iron. You'll be able to buy weapons from shops in the towns, which you can just say 'I want a (material) (weapon), do you have any?' or the like, and you'll get an answer ASAP.

Wood = $5 per piece
Iron = $10 per piece

You need to attack with a weapon/magic. You currently have choice of:

-Hand-to-Hand
-Sword

You can describe your attack to raise the damage variable. =P
