War of the Cosmos: Eternity's Dynasty
#1

[Image: BloodElf_Crest.png]

Quote:A line has been drawn in the blood of the fallen. The House of Seregon openly challenges the House of Novalight. Diplomatic action is not an option. The two have gone to war. But it will not be one of two opposing armies per se. Yes, there will be two sides, one if interested you will choose. The winner is completely up to you, and everyone effects the outcome. The premise is a two sided war, based around two old Noble Houses. Although the RP is far from limited to just Silvermoon and isn't exclusive to elves, or the Horde. The rivalry would be similar to the Montague and Capulet families, minus whats-his-name and that one chick. This isn't a good vs evil, more so bad vs evil. Looking for serious role players.



Parties Involved


Very old house aristocratic house, lead by the alleged Fire Mage Lord Elrohir Seregon. Seeking family members, mercenaries and others sympathetic to their cause. Maybe the family aided your character in the past, you want gold, or really hate the Novalight family or some of their allies. The Novalight family is far from good, they have extorted, murdered, bought out businesses under the table and have unjustly benefited from friends in their aristocratic circle. Or the reason is yours, main thing is to have fun with the storyline. Create your reason and outcome and effect that of others. This would also be a nice home for darker characters who wish to end lives.

Which also could be said about

Another very old house lead by the young, and impressionable Zariel Amaru Novalight. The Novalight House would be 'turning around' in it's way of business, but would overly be known for ruthlessness, their unsightly collection of Death Knight family members and certain rumors depending on the char if they were privy to the information. The Novalight family would probably be looked at as a Mafia. You know they do dirt but you can't prove it, and they smugly smile in your face while doing so. But since Zariel's term as Nova, they've raised philanthropy and 'appear' less devious with it's friendlier, fresh faced figure head.

Looking for...


Serious RPers. This won't always be okay lets meet here and go here for random encounter roll fight. Though there will be fighting this should always be about developing characters and a story. Also I encourage and plead for characters to bring something to this as well. Granted it's fine if your mercenary is just here for the gold. That's perfect, but for those who love to add onto things and bounce ideas I ask you to take it a step further.

Since they're two noble houses and wouldn't dare like the Montagues and Capulets to fight so boldly in the streets they in certain arenas will have to use subterfuge. Regardless of which family you are aligned with you should be mindful of your surroundings. Also it is fine to go to the bazaar threads and add wanted posters for characters, or slander their names and actions in a IC post (ICly only please) as some of the conflict will not always be physical. These characters will still have to deal with these (lets keep them plausible) but say either patriarch was framed for murder. That would obviously put their position on the line and they would probably have to stay out of Silvermoon until it was cleared.

TL;DR possibilities endless, use your imagination and initiative.

Events and Systems

Events will be held weekly to bi-weekly depending on interest and player base available. Day-to-day RP in between possibly spawning impromptu events or casual plot/char developing RP. Depending on size and situation.

Combat

If there are 6 or less combatants in the fight. It will be roll out of 100.

A critical hit is an attack roll of 50 digits or higher than the opposing defense roll.

No counters.

7 or more, may be done like this. 7 or more players and pets, vs NPCs such as (anonymous members of either family, or mobs, or whatever the story permits) will go as follows:

Quote:The elves spot the party, they rush out to attack; knives high reflecting moonlight. Roll 40 or high to dodge

The members of the party would roll their reaction, hit or dodge.

Attacking would be the same except I would roll or just say a number to beat with your roll once you attempt an attack on an anonymous NPC.

If it's 7 or more PVP I'd just ask players to break off into parties of smaller groups inviting and uninviting if necessary. I won't keep everyone together in a big raid because of the emote spam is already going to be ridiculous, + number spam and idle inevitable chatter that steers us from the point.

Ex: Member from party/group 1 goes to help his friend who is getting attacked by people in party/group 3.

I also want to try to add loot. Such as a random opponent has an interesting weapon. The weapon model can be reselected by whoever obtains the item (nothing OP and keep similar for sake of logic), and can have a simple + 5 to their roll maybe +10. Nothing gargantuan but comes together for those close calls. Also, armor would be 'dropped' for defensive bonuses. Something to take away from this RP and keep with your character.

"Where'd you get that shiny?"

/shrug "Killed a dude and took it."


I cannot promote keeping the frowned upon roll bonuses outside the RP that specifically recognizes it however.

Storyline

The storyline will be documented and if you like writing feel free to add your own bit, or your character's perspective. For the Lord Seregon/Mastus and others perspectives or side will be the Death of the Cosmos: Eternity's End. From the Zariel/And others, see Heir to the Cosmos. Some unrevealed chars will be in the posts above. There isn't a time frame in stone yet, as far as how long this will last. I'm not sure about Grogloki but this is how I feel. This isn't about killing characters, though characters will die and you should prepare for character warnings. But this isn't about a kill count, many battles a majority of the battles will be a fight to K.O. Bad guys will be reoccurring to add history between characters.

Also I'd like to ask that a GM be involved, as these things can get out of hand. From both sides, also GM's have a lot of responsibilities, kick back and be an RPer again. The players will guide the story. The RP is only as constricted as you make it. To participate you don't have to be at every event, and every RP. For either family, obviously depends on your charater but sometimes taking a side is enough. So when there are large battles to call to arms those who wish to fight are there. I will suggest for those involved to really go all out, because we can't have conquest RP with the environment and lore but we can with each other. Lives could be erased and changed for ever.

So pick a side, any side. -Both- sides, I don't care.

For the House of Seregon - whisper/pm 'Grogloki'

For the House of Novalight - Whisper/pm ThePharaoh

Quote: Thanks to c0rzilla for adding and editing to post. Also this will serve as the OOC hub for events going on, so those who chose to drop in and out can follow along.

I would just like to add that for the more trusted players trust fighting is allowed in certain events and will be announced during that event, (Both players must agree to it otherwise it will remain a roll system). Because in some cases a Death Knight would just flat out kill a basic level mage. Period. Also Xigo has already expressed that he would play a character and assist if he has time. I would like to thank him openly for his contribution and I hope to see more GM's join the fun! Lastly take what this post says to heart. Do not think of banding together in a large group and just hunting down Zariel or Elrohir to slaughter them. This is a "gentlemen/Ladies" war and will be treated as such. There are rules both sides will have to follow in order to keep this fight from spilling over into the streets and calling attention from much higher more dangerous foes. (Ex: The Magisters would most likely slaughter both houses and be done with it if they would not cease.) Although they are not present in any real way via the RP we should treat -our- RP as though they were. So don't plan on storming homes guns blazing people, it will only end poorly for you. So come and join the mystery, the underground warfare, the violence, the drama. Whatever your RP love is we have it I promise you that. The first event will be announced this weekend before sunday, it will include the (Time, Place, Story, and Details) of the event.

THE WAR OF THE COSMOS: ETERNITIES DYNASTY!

EVENT NUMBER ONE!

The time is now… and the war is on! This saturday (Yes tomorrow!). Pick a side, or both. Join the RP as you fight through what has the potential to be one of the longest running and most epic stories ever to grace our great realm of CoTh. All are welcome all are encouraged if you wish to be a hero and wish for songs to be sung in your name try your luck! If you wish to walk in darkness and dwell where the evil things sleep then brave the void! Either way! Get out of your tavern funk and come RP! You may whisper or PM The Pharaoh or Grogloki in game or on the website for details if you wish to join. A shout will go up in the shout box and in world chat before each event begins. These are the first of many. The purpose is to build a solid base for the unfolding storyline. Keep in mind the events will start small and eventually grow in scale.

Event Rules:

For mass combat (ex: group vs fifteen guards) the rule of 40/60 will be in effect meaning (40- you are hit) and (41+ you kill a target)

Personal Boss Event Combat:

These will be handled as straight up roll fights with the boss holding an undisclosed amount of health (Don’t worry I know what the word over powered means. You just focus on killing the S.O.B.) These are the fights that are there to bring the term of epic back to our lovely realm.

Respect For The Story Tellers:

It takes a lot to plan a story and event. Be patient and we ask that all rude comments are kept behind your teeth. Let the Story Teller unfold the scenes and describe for you what is happening. If something slips there mind simply speak up. (Ex: “Hey Grog you skipped my turn”… “Oh sorry you may act”) We are trying to create a nice RP environment where we can all have characters who progress and grow through this amazing storyline, so please… patience!


Novalight Event Saturday 12:00 realm time.

Mini RP Info:

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9DO1U1U5Rc[/youtube]

Mastus strides into the room mud caking his boots, “Nova. I have stumbled across some information via… -methods-. Apparently one of the Seregon House trade routes will be working tomorrow. As I pressed the man for more information he revealed that the caravan will be carrying a load of rare jewels… and a wand. The wand was special ordered by Lord Elrohir for reasons undisclosed.” Zariel’s ears perk, “Wonderful. This is an excellent time to show our force. We must send the message loud and clear, we are not to be fooled with and those who try will pay the price.” Mastus nods. The two Elves move to a larger table to begin planning the attack on the caravan. A young woman enters, “What’s going on?” Anna heads for the table. Zariel perks up glancing to her, “Mastus has uncovered some information. We shall use it to deliver the first blow from our side.” A hesitation hangs in the air. The gleam in the young Elf’s eyes is a new one. The decision is final and the stage has been set.

Event:

The Novalight guild has come into some information about an old trade route used by House Seregon. Zariel has tasked his House with retrieving the contents of the caravan. It will be heavily armed and a personal escort will be assisting in the transportation of the “wand” that was mentioned above. Should the group complete the mission they will receive a single item wand useable by caster ect. The wand offers a (+5 bonus) to offensive rolls in the WAR OF THE COSMOS EVENTS (and only in those events).


Seregon Event Saturday 3:00 realm time.

Mini RP Info:

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Amf0FZiGcw[/youtube]

Flaatom strides to Elrohir who stands facing a large glowing green orb, “You had better bring me good news Flaatom…” The Demon grunts shaking his head, “I do not Master.” The large Elf rounds on the Demon backhanding him, “Get… out.. of my sight.” Flaatom growls low for a moment and then stomps off. A slim young woman steps from the shadows, “Uncle, Aledis has something to deliver.” Aledis follows her emerging from the darkness. Elrohir’s eyes flare bright, “I promise you boy… for your failure you will pay. Now! You will deliver what you have before I punish you!” Aledis cowers at his Uncle’s shattering voice, “Y-yes Uncle.” He hands him a chunk of hair, “This is the gift I bring.” For a moment the girl gasped as Elrohir stretched a flexing hand out, but he quelled his rage “Wait… give that to me child.” A sly smirk spread across the Lords face. Thunderous laughter came from him, “Now let us see him weasel his way out of this one.” In his hand sat a lock of brownish well groomed hair, the makings of a horrible lie.

Event:

The Seregon House will be tasked with luring out a Nobleman of another rival House and executing him away from Silvermoon. They will then be tasked with staging the body near the entrance of Silvermoon and planting the locket of hair upon the body. The Nobleman is wearing an amulet of protection so it will be hard to defeat him (Who said money can’t be happiness? It can sure save your life) should the group complete the task they will receive the amulet offering a (+5) to defensive rolls in the WAR OF THE COSMOS EVENTS (And only those events).

A question about the times. Will the events that take place during the earlier Novalight event have any effect on the later Seregon event?

Yes the events will be interlocked just the focus and the narrative will be different. The story will be witnessed as of now by two sides. House of Seregon and House of Novalight. The events are tied together. But they are two separate events.

Oh, so the Novalight event wont directly effect the Seregon event immediately, but after both events? Either way, it sounds like it will be fun!

No it will. The Seregon event today is based off of what will happen in the Novalight Event. They are separate in the sense that the same characters might not be involved. Not sure what Grogloki has planned but I know there will be more Seregon characters in the later event. He just told me that it is Seregon's reaction to what happens in the Novalight Event. 's all I know about it as we're trying to keep our sides as separate as possible for genuine RP and to prevent metagaming.

The Seregon Event scheduled to take place today will take place at a later scheduled date if the server is being fixed. The event -will- be happening so just remain calm. Trust in the glorious powers of our GM's :) I will post again once the server is up and running. Thank you to all who attended the Novalight Event, though it was small it went rather well.

War of the Cosmos: Eternity's Dynasty!

Event Two


This event is open to everyone, will be held in Sholazar and will be a way of interlocking storylines and intersect character's lives in a social setting before the inevitable doom happens. Participating in this event or any event doesn't mean you have to continue to follow up on the future events ( though its encouraged! ) or force you to join a guild.

____________________



An elf in a fine suit approaches a podium with numerous elves standing before him. A red haired elf stands beside him. "I will be brief, as most of you here have probably received the letters. For those who haven't, The Novalight House and a few others are banning together to put a banquet for those lost during the third war, and the Lich King's aftermath. We dub it the Requiem of Remembrance. I hope to see you all there." He nods.

Hands shoot into the air, as the crowd begins to call out to him, for questions. A sea of requests, "Nova! Nova! Sir, Over here please! Mr. Novalight!" As if routine, the red haired elf points to the most attractive female. "I believe the beautiful lady has something to say Nova.". The lady blushes as Zariel looks to her. "Of course." He nods to her. "Proceed, sister."

"Where will it be? I hear there is a bid, is this true? What of those after your life?" The elf planted in the crowd to ask that specific question recites. Zariel looks to her, acting as if he weren't expecting it. "It will be in Sholazar Basin; Northrend." The elves murmur to themselves, some gasp. "But there will be security, and the surrounding areas will be monitored. There is a one gold coin bid but it goes to those in need. Bring your best garb, and attitude. We will represent our nation gloriously." He smiles to the others. "As for those after my life, I am a Sin'dorei. I will not run or hide from my attackers. If they wish to find me they shall, regardless of what I do. I feel this is an important matter, the Lich King's curse runs in my family. I know there are others like me who are worse off, I will not forsake them because of self preservation."

An elf in a black suit approaches the Nova whispering something in his large ear. He is then ushered away from the podium into the carriage pulled by two golden Hawkstriders. Singerius clears his throat. "No further questions, our apologies. Portals will be provided, and if you have any questions just go to your local Novalight invested establishments and ask for details." He says with a smile. Singe walks to the carriage as well getting inside. They roll off, as the hawkstriders pull them through Eversong.

"How'd I do?" Zariel says, casually. "Perfect. Now we can resume with your plan." Singerius adds. Zariel nods. "Excellent." The carriage rides off leaving a trail of dust.

A lot has happened so I'd like to take the time to clarify a few things. First off there is always talk about the council. There are two councils. One Council is Zariel's council as Nova. It would be akin to a presidential cabinet. His own personal selected group to support his term they consist of, Reigen Dawnsend, Singerius Highstride, Mastus Novalight, a seat is still open but responsibilities fall on Singerius and the Phoenix Knights for defense, armaments, and mobilizing a guard.

The Second Council is that of the house. Which consists of old Novas, and trusted family members to oversee the family and make sure the Nova is running everything satisfactory. Agorine is the only indentified member of this Council and since Zariel has been accused of Murder he is in prison awaiting trial. Agorine has taken over and leads the family as Interim-Nova. Her position will be solidified or revoked when Zariel's verdict is announced. Which Brings me to....


War of the Cosmos: Eternity's Dynasty!

Event Three

The Trial of Zariel Novalight




This is more of a concept than an actual event as I have two ways to display this and could use some constructive feedback. I will leave the future of Zariel to the server ( please be gentle, but logical! ) No matter the outcome the server will be the Jury. I'd like a unbiased GM to be the judge but that's if any wants to participate.

The first way it could happen would be forum RP. I would probably start the opening as a scene of an intense trial. And write the opening for the lawyers, others if interested are more than willing to participate and I encourage it. We can present evidence and list it in the thread so people can follow along. After a certain time limit, ( a week possibly ) all of the information gathered would come together and a verdict would be held. I will make a poll for guilty and not guilty ( and based on the evidence ) you can make a decision on whether he was wrongfully accused or send him to prison.

The second way would be to simply do the same thing but In game. We could have a court house and act it all out. I would still have the jury be the server and post a poll on the forums. There are pros and cons to both, this will be a little smaller scale than the Requiem as a lot of things have happened and I will give time for characters to react.

Also I know Sterling Hart is a detective, I believe he will be sought after to help the Novalights in this situation if the player is interested. Anyone else want to participate or even if you don't want to but have an idea on how to do this please let me know.

Also this transcends in-game. Characters affiliated may want to look into the truth behind this claim. I will log on chars to drop clues and hints, once I speak with Grogloki. I'm sure he can do the same as well. To add an intrigue to the plot once more. I love fighting but depth and character bonds are important to. What is known to those in the know would be...

- Zariel has turned himself in,

- The Novalight appointed Agorine Novalight as interim-Nova

- The war against the Seregon House is still active
