This Looking For RP topic is marked as closed, meaning it is no longer seeking new players.

I have been building a setting for a while. The general gist of it is mythology is 100% historically accurate, and races such as orcs, and elves, and others exist. This opens the setting to all sorts of characters from all sorts of backgrounds. There are a few Restrictions in place that will be mentioned at the end. For now let's narrow the focus to the starting city....

You have come to the City of Onma. It's said that it was built long ago by a forgotten race of people. Some say the grand cathedral was carved by titans, other's say that the walls are made from fallen primordial elementals. No one knows for sure. For thousands of years this city has acted as a neutral trading hub. Untouched by the ravages of war, strife, or famine. It's laws are simple, but strict. This is a place of peace, trade, and commerce. Alliances, hatreds, and pacts mean nothing in the walls of this city. There are only people. These and other laws are enforced by ever watchful guardians of stone.

You, like many others have come to see the sights, find work, trade, shop, or make alliances with new people in this place of true neutrality. Perhaps you find yourself at one of the many taverns, or the market square. You will find people from all walks of life, all types of trades and vocations. They are drawn here with the promise of equality so long as they remain inside the great walls of the city.

The large outer walls seem to be carved out of a ruddy tan sandstone, yet to the touch they feel as if they are made of granite or cast iron. Large towers haphazardly decorate the sky line. Built by those that live here, and rebuild by their successors. The streets are winding and lead in loops as they have been used to many things over the centuries. Despite the darkened alleyways, the narrow causeways, and bridges that seem to dead-end into homes, there is an air of calm ever present. Should one take the time to stop and look close they would see that on every building, and every street sits a carved stone figure. It looks vaguely human, but seems more like a golem. Covered in an ancient and lost language they stand ever present, ever watchful. If violence arises they animate separate the parties, and throw them from the city, never to be allowed within it's walls again. This is the one, and only rule.

This is of course, merely a starting point. A way to branch off to other stories and other adventures. There will be an open Forum topic on this as well. I'm still working on compiling all the world building information so for now, if you have questions feel free to ask. Restrictions are listed below. Note there may be some light dice usage for the element of randomness, but mostly it will be free form.

Restrictions:
These are for the purpose of focus, and are not meant to stifle your creativity.

1. No power gaming. This should be obvious, don't be that guy.
2. Do not play a Famous Figure. No Hercules, or Perseus, or King Arthur. You could be from Camelot, but do not embody the person. Use your own creativity.
3. Technology is restricted to the Iron Age. No fire arms. If you want to use gunpowder look at the flame lances of china.


If you would like help building a character for this setting do not hesitate to reach out. I am happy to RP over discord, or through PM's as well.
Magic 100%
Mundane? What's that? Magic permeates every part of the setting. Almost everyone has access to strong magic.
Technology 30%
Renaissance
Combat 50%
Combat is expected as part of the storyline but it won't dominate the plot.
Romance 50%
Romance is desired but not required, and will balance evenly with other plot.

Details: Occasional dice use, adjustable length posts, long-term RP partner preferred.
