The war has been raging for centuries, both tigers and dragons have been drowning in each-others blood for every second of that time, the Dragons, with their powers of flight and their magics have kept the never-ending hordes of stronger, faster tigers at bay, even with their infamous Zhirite weapons which work to nullify Dragon magics.

For the centuries, the borders of each land have changed constantly, sometimes the dragons would take vast swathes of Tiger land only to be slaughted in their sleep and forced back to the mountain anges where the wa rages to today, both sides are exhausted, this stalemate can't last forever, there needs to be a game-changer... and this gamechanger is closer than they think.

Off the shore, a fleet of 400 ships, steel along their sides and great tubes of thick metal on their top, spilling black smoke into the air approach the shores of the continent, their arrival was noticed with great suspicion, and in their fear, both the tigers and dragons decided to drive these new scaleless and furless strangers from the land.. this resulted in one of the greatest massacres of the past few ceturies, the newcomers weilded strange hand-held weapons which fired balls of hot, spinning metal which pierced the thickest scales and armor wit ease, those huge tubes on the ships fired giant exploding rounds as well, soon the newcomers had carved out a new homeland, with the attacking armies lying on the ground, dead, both the dragons waited for the coming invasion... but it never came.

50 years have passed since then, both the tigers and dragons kept the strange ones under close watch, but now with these newcomers who call themselves "Humans" fully established with a city called "New Haven" they have opened trade and dialogue with both the tigers and dragons.

After the events of 50 years ago, both the dragons and tigers knew, that although these humans were few in comparison (around 30,000) they were powerful, and with their weapons they would grant victory to whoever the allied with, so has begun a campaign from both the dragons and tigers to win the human's favor, through diplomacy, immigration, inter-breeding, the dragons offer their magics in healing and building while the tigers offer vast fields ripe for the farming and manual labor, all to gain what the humans possess, such as gunpowder, using coal and oils to make energy and materials that would grant victory to whoever wields them.

We play as Humans, Tigers and Dragons, the human land is a neutral zone, where dragons and tigers are not allowed to attack each-other (even though there are regular street fights which are swiftly broken up)

Details on the origins of the humans:
The humans came from a continent called "Terras Nova" however due to a combination of natural disasters and a deadly plague, those who were found to have notraces of the disease were put onto the ships and set off for a new land, or at least to land in a place so remote they could make a new civilization, but with the humans came their own problems, internal squabbles, politics, religious conflicts etc... how will the dragons and tigers use these to their advantage?...

DETAILS:

*Human technology is of the 1890s-1910 level, no I-pods or machine guns.
*ALL credit for the 'Draconia Chronicles" universe go to Razorfox AKA Dan Valentini, this is a non-canon, non-profit work of fan fiction and if requested by the owner of the comic/universe, i will remove this within a heartbeat.

*No Bullying.
*No killing off other people's characters without permission.
*Have fun.
* NEW RULE; We have enough human characters, non-human characters only accepted from this point

Name:Artemis Francois
Age: 27
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Appearance:

Skills: Natural leader, skilled in swordplay and diplomacy.
Biography: Artemis is the youngest king in human history, With his father dying from a native disease and his mother dead from his childbirth, Artemis was thrust into the position of being the central ruler of the human empire (even though it only comprises one medium sized city and a few farming communities) Artemis is also the only king to be appointed without a bride, this has left several high-ranking tigers and dragons to attempt to gain his kingdom's favor by presenting themselves as potential brides, however Artemis has rejected all thus far.
Artemis spends most of his time in the "noble quarter" of New Haven, particularly in the castle where he sends out his orders and decrees, Artemis works primarily to be a mediator between the Tigers and Dragons, but it is fast becoming clear that no matter how much he tries, eventually he will have to choose to side with one faction, or to cut New Haven from both.

In the case of the above? Google. The first image is of Mello from Death Note, the second is of Reiner Braun from Attack on Titan (Or Shingeki no Kyojin, if you prefer that name). Works well enough for the purpose of visualizing a base appearance.

Quick note on policies: extreme gore and graphic sex are not allowed. I know because the gore in my own comic got SK to establish some ground rules, heh...

I think I'd like to participate. It's been a long time since I did a story RP. ^_^

Name: Mioki
Age: 23
Gender: female
Race: tiger
Appearance: A big muscly tiger gal with short, messy black hair and green eyes. Wears a stained white loincloth and a red scarf.
Skills: Poor combat skills. So clumsy, she might take enemies down with her! Very good swimmer, well-practiced in hiding, hunting and foraging.
Biography: Raised near a lake. Her mother got sick when she was very young. She had to take care of her mother in hiding near the lake, hence why she's good at swimming but not so good at fighting. Now that her mother has passed away, Mioki has left her hiding place and wanders, seeking the companionship of other tigers. She has only seen one group of dragons fly by the lake, and hasn't heard of humans. She's got a kind and nurturing personality, and because she hasn't had contact with other people in years, she's very socially awkward.

It's been a long time since I've RP, but, with the setting in DC, I would love to be a part of it.

Name: Roufus Lernard
Age: 19
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Appearance:

Skills: Highly trained swordplay, moderate firearms, CQC (hand-to-hand combat), and Draconic
Biography: Roufus is a young man that has a strong sense of justice, courage, and balance. Before he was born, his father went missing and his mother died giving birth. Luckily, his mother's parents were there to raise him. They came to "New Haven" to do what everyone else did, to escape the horrors that shadowed their homeland. As Roufus grew to maturity, his grand-father wanted him to be able to defend himself in the new world, so he signed him in the military for combat training. Through the years, Roufus became a honorable soldier of the army at a young age. His talents with a blade are well-known, one of the best this generation has seen. Thou he does have some skills with firearms, Roufus isn't fond to them and would rather his sword. But, if his hand is forced, he will use them to get the job at hand done. Often he would travel to the dragon kingdom in military trips of diplomatic meeting, and while there, he learned their language.

Name: Puffarno (Aka - Puff)
Age: 60
Gender: Male
Race: Water Dragon
Appearance: Rather dwarfish by male dragon standards, Puff only stands 12' from nose to tail. His body is slightly more serpentine than average. It makes for better swimming but is often seen as 'geeky' by dragon standards. His scales are blue. But they are every possible shade of blue from nearly purple to the lightest robins egg. The colored scales are randomly scattered in no apparent order or style making attempts to guess his true blue color nearly impossible.

Skills: Swimming, sailing, Brewing, First Aid, and Music (singing, whistling, composing, and playing a couple instruments)

Magic: Water based (His main attack is increasing the alcoholic content of the extra moisture in a target. IE - he makes them drunk)

Biography: Puff was still very young when the humans first arrived. Already he was the runt of the litter and had a very mild manner. He had almost no interest in games or competitions. Puff would have been a natural victim for bullies except that his annoyingly calm manner deflected most aggressive behavior. Even after the human slaughter of the dragons, puff really didn't take full advantage of being one of the few remaining male dragons. He preferred to spend his time in a cloud of magically generated alcoholic mist and compose great songs and ballads. As time went by Puff found his calling in the running of a hospice for injured dragons. His many teas and stronger 'medicines' made sure the patients were always calm and relaxed while they healed. With the constant battles, there was never a shortage of patients.

Well, after the first one, why not!

Name: AMP
Age: 25
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Appearance:

Skills: Superior swordsmanship, superior marksmanship, superior tracking skills
Biography:
Unlike most of the humans, AMP was born in one of the farming communities surround New Haven. Unfortunately, he did not know his biological parents as an undocumented skirmished between the dragons and tigers engulfed his community, with casualties on all three sides. During the fires, a mother tiger heard his cries and rescued him from his burning house.

Sasha, the mother tiger that saved him, raised him in secret as her own for nearly eight years until the others found out. There was talk of abandoning the child, killing the child, and returning the child to the human world; however, after much debate, she was allowed to raise the child. He was considered an outcast among the tigers, avoided like the plague. Only a few would dare even acknowledge his existence and only a handful of tigers that would even talk to him.

During his adolescence , he was trained how to speak their language, hunt, track, and fight with a striking weapon from some of the toughest female warriors in the tiger tribe. At first, he received virtually no support, except his mother and a few close friends; however, in time, he surpassed his teachers.

When he was 18, a group of wayward humans “rescued him from his captors” and returned him to New Haven, where he was trained as a mercenary in the ways of the gun and knife. He even upgraded his clothing to the image you see above. During the five years he spent their, he learned the language and saw the corruption and greed within these humans. During the night, he escaped and returned to his tiger tribe, where he was welcomed with open arms.

He knows not what is coming, but he is ready to stand and fight to protect his friends, family, and home from the dragon and human threats!


I'll upload a few more later for the tigers

Ok, dove through the DC archives and a few forum posts to make sure I had a proper handle on the lore. I'm guessing male dragons should be few and far between at absolute best and male tigers are probably out altogether. Alright then, let's see what I can come up with.

Name: Xi
Age: 82 (Effective age: 20)
Gender: Female
Race: Water Dragon
Appearance: Blue scales, shoulder length ruddy orange hair (braided), short sharp horns
Skills: Basic understanding* of the human language, some acting skills, excellent fisher, graceful dancer, knowledge of drink mixing, training as a tattoo artist, Water Magic
*Read: Mostly understands the language, but her own mastery of it can be somewhat broken

Biography: As a child, Xi used to love going fishing with Arashi, her beloved memei. Sadly, it would be during one of these excursions that Arashi would meet her untimely demise at the hands of the tigers. Needless to say, the event caused her to lose quite a bit of love for the activity and gave her - like so many others - a personal stake in the war. As an adult Xi has repeatedly tried to join the war effort and been repeatedly turned down (usually for perceived emotional instability) and as a consequence she has drifted between jobs somewhat. To date she has been an entertainer, a bartender, a fisher (when she needs to make ends meet), a shopkeeper and a tattooist. She recently applied yet again and was rejected yet again. Unable to accept this, she decided to venture to New Haven to barter with the strange 'humans' and thus prove her worth to the talking heads keeping her from the front lines...

It starts at the GM's discretion, some time after character details are ironed out. So be patient, young grasshopper. It will start soon enough.

Ok thanks what you think of my character?
Mmm...not really my call to make, but since you asked, I guess I could weigh in on it. Again though, I'm far from an authority on this.

Personally, I'm a bit leery about player characters introduced as 'the best <insert significant job here>'. As I see it to be 'the best' is to be static, whereas a PC has to have room to evolve over time. Generally speaking, 'the best' presents a goal to reach, something to eventually overcome. But to be fair, this tends to be a rule best applied to structured PvE games rather than freeform (social?) games. Ultimately though, Ivory's the only one who can say for certain how much leeway he wants to allow in this regard.

It does strike me as potentially problematic that the character directly references Kilani. On a technical note we have no idea when this takes place in relation to the comic proper. This could be the distant past, the distant future or the present in an alternate continuity. If the setting has humans arriving around the time of the comic then Kilani would be around 76 by the time the RP itself starts (For comparison, Mabel is 61). If it takes place before she was born or after she dies then naturally your character wouldn't know her (though the latte does allow for knowing OF her). Alternatively, she might very well not exist in this world. If you want to keep the life debt bit then I might suggest being a little vaguer about the identity of the tiger that saved him (ala: "Was saved once by a tiger who dreamt of peace, a dream Ratsel intends to make a reality someday") simply to bypass this issue. If Kilani's a viable NPC for this, then it works as a fairly obvious reference to her, if she isn't then a different tiger fills the role and you don't hit continuity issues.

Not sure if the half-human half-dragon kid is viable in this world either, but that's really Ivory's call, not mine.

Gotta say though, it might just be my lack of direct RP experience, but I rarely see people take the horribly scarred route with their characters, much less with one leaning more towards the good/more honorable end of the alignment spectrum than the evil/'renegade' end, so good on you for catching me off guard like that. It's quite refreshing, really. :happySnowman:
