Hello everyone, I'm a new MythWeavers user but an RP and PbP veteran of differing places. Recently I've found myself with the time and inclination to re-run a campaign which I conducted in real life for a group of friends but with a new set of adventurers. Here is the basic information for the game, and thanks for your time.
This is a high-posting rate game; ideally you should be able to post once a day and story updates will occur at a minimum every two days. Inactivity kills games more assuredly than anything else if you do not sincerely believe you can devote time to this story please do not apply.
If you have played the GBA game "Tactics Ogre: The Knight of Lodis" upon which this game is loosely based you must be exceedingly proficient at keeping IC and OOC knowledge separate.
This game will involve a high degree of role-playing and, with the exception of the first portion, the plot will be largely player-driven with a strong narrative story line which provides the backbone. Also present will be tactical combat with MapTools created layouts and some light investigation and intrigue elements.
The game will begin at Level 4 and progress through the levels at a decent pace, likely reaching the high teens by the time the storyline has concluded. Experience rewards are given for posting consistency, challenges overcome (be they social, stealth, combat, or other) and exceptional writing.
I will be accepting exactly 6 players. One will be from each of the standard archetypes of Front Line Fighter, Sneak/Skillful, "Arcane" Caster, and "Divine" Caster. The other two may be repeats from these categories or miscellaneous other applications as I find them acceptable.
Please submit applications in the appropriately named thread in the posted format. Questions may be asked and answered in the thread "Character Creation and Related Questions" which also includes pertinent mechanical information.
In short, imagine the Holy Roman Empire at the height of its power but set in a fantasy world. For [insert your reason] you are operating at their behest to investigate a potentially rebellious province. Not all is as it appears, however, and neither luck nor time is on your side...
The greatest mortal nation which has ever graced the planet, the Holy Lodis Empire spans the known world in some form or another. It is a combined autocracy and theocracy, with the Emperor and the Church perpetually struggling for power over the dozens of component states and provinces, though this competition is largely out of view of the public eye. The Lodis Empire was forged through blood and conquest but also through diplomacy and guile. As such, many of the component nations have some degree of autonomy.
