    Question [DISCUSSION] The Land of Bardd - THE High Fantasy RPG

    BARDD - Build All Ridiculous Delusions and Devices


    Welcome to Bardd, the land of High Fantasy. Create your characters, model your towns and villages, and engage in proper production of role playing behaviour. This is to be managed by writing no fewer than 50 words, and no more than 450.

    (Larger and Smaller versions of this image are available by PM to the Game Master; the image is within CC license agreement with the creator).

    Playable Characters - fall within the following template. Feel free to elaborate on the civilization they are a part of, or anything you wish to include. Also feel free to manage multiple characters (no more than 4 at the moment).

    Name(s):
    Age:
    Gender:
    Appearance:
    Background:
    Personality:
    Equipment, Items:
    TYPE:
    Rank:
    Civilization (Or Alone?):
    Location on Map:
    Notes:



    Non-Playable Characters

    Elder Gods - Managed by the Game Master, currently Elvenswordsman.

    Wri and For - WritingForums.com - the archivists, who make available the map to players.


    General Guidelines - Please read this General RPG Guide by Foxee before playing.


    1) Your player characters (PCs), and their backgrounds, will be posted here. Be as creative as you want, all genders, races, cultures, and entities(aside from certain restrictions) allowed.


    2) All OOC (Out of Character) comments MUST be posted here, in the discussion thread.


    3) God-mode is not allowed for PCs (player characters).


    4) Auto-hitting (winning a fight before another player can respond) is not allowed. In the event a player is inactive for more than 1 week, the action may be continued.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Premise - The Elder Gods created a world, and races and cultures began to spring up from absolutely nowhere! Whole civilizations have sprung up within a matter of seconds!


    World - Bardd, a continent shown by the map. Land is up for grab and claims are allowed, and these will be managed by the Game Master.


    Goals - Players are aiming to conquer the continent, either within their allegiances and treaties, or as a lone movement. Players wishing to be neutral (non-violent - think Switzerland) entities will need permission from the Game Master.


    Time - Game time will be managed by the Game Master, although the furthest north-east point of the map to the furthest south-west point is a journey of 7 (in-game) days for an individual character, however an army requires 4X that amount (applicable to any movement).


    Special Abilities - Stay away from God-Mode-esque abilities (invisibility, invincibility, teleportation). If you have an idea for an ability, post here and the Game Master (and others) will advise on further action.

    1. Read everyone’s posts! Not only does this keep us all on the same page, it’s fun to know your posts are being read and acted upon. Respond to stimuli and events from other players’ posts.

    2. Avoid writing one-line posts or extremely long posts.

    3. Edit before posting, we’re all here to improve as well as enjoy.

    4. No God-mode-esque behaviour or perfect characters. (boring!)

    5. Fights between characters are allowed, though if a fight or killing is unavoidably called for, the players concerned must work the action out in PM and both parties should be amenable to the outcome.

    6. Do not control another person’s character without their express consent.

    7. If a player is AWOL and holding up the game the character will be NPC’d at the GMs’ discretion. If you know you’ll be gone for some time you may hand over your character to another player’s care.

    8. Don’t flood the thread (NO back-to-back posts - limit posting to 3 times / day) with long conversations. Give others a chance to post.

    9. Please discuss any issues in the Discussion thread or PM the Game Master with your concerns. Gossiping about issues or spamming up the story thread is counterproductive.

    10. And lastly…the GMs’ word is law.
    Thanks for stopping in, getting familiar with the rules; let the game begin!
