Maxbear29's Interactive Medieval Tale. (SUBMIT CHARACTERS HERE, LINK TO STORY INSIDE)

edited November 2014 in Forum Games

I'm gonna advertise the living shit out of this, because I'm so excited about the idea. Basically, I shall be writing a story about a medieval war, with your characters as the soldiers. I've been playing loads of Fire Emblem: Awakening, and it gave me this idea. So I'm gonna give you a variety of classes to choose from, and you make a character, and choose a class (THE CLASSES ARE NOT EXTREMELY IMPORTANT, THEY'RE MORE FOR FUN, AND MOST OF THE STORY WILL BE OUTSIDE OF BATTLE). The classes are just for fun, so you can give your guy a role in this army, in fighting the other sides. By the way, I am making characters as enemies. Anyway, I'll give you a character template, and a list of all classes, and I hope to get as many people in as possible, so if you're interested, you can join :). Most of the story will be outside of battle, planning, talking, building relationships, and other general "story stuff." There will be important choices you will all vote on, as per usual, and if a character dies, they're dead. So: On to the classes, and the template, and I hope you will join :)

CLASSES:

It's a long list, so bear with me, and I'll give you a short description. (Also, if you're character uses magic, specify if they specialize in Fire, Wind, or Thunder, magic, as those are the 3 types, for story purposes.

TACTICIAN: This is a special class, as there may only be 1 of these guys. So reread all character's classes, and see if they're tacticians, and if there is none, you may choose this. Tacticians fight with swords and magic spells. They make the tactical decisions for the group.

FIGHTER: Uses axes. Very powerful, and strike hard, but (generally, not always. Whenever I say statistics like this, it's mostly.) have weak defenses.

KNIGHT: Knights wear very heavy armor, and are strong and defensive, but are the slowest class by far. Wield lances.

CAVALIER: A soldier on a horse. Essentially have average stats all around, with mildly high attack, and very high speed. Wield swords and Lances.

MERCENARY: A hired fighter, who are unofficial members of the army. They are strong, with less attack by a little, but more defense by a little than a fighter. Wield Swords.

PEGASUS KNIGHT: Very frail, with a extremely high range of movement and attack. A Soldier mounted on a flying horse (badass). Wield lances.

ARCHERS: Pretty frail, and stay hidden, as they shoot down foes. Wield bows (The only class to do so.)

MAGE: Very fragile, and cannot take a hit. The more supportive attacking class, are generally behind the lines picking off enemies. Only use spells.

DARK MAGE: A little more offensive, can take a hit far better, but have less advantages. Only can use dark magic, so you cannot specify what type.

THIEF: Sneaks around, and takes a stealthy approach to killing enemies. Low defenses, and mediocre attack, but the quickest class, and can pick locks, open chests, loot bodies, and pickpocket. Wields swords.

PRIEST/CLERIC: (Only difference is that Cleric is female, and Priest is male.) Low defenses, offenses, and average speed, they are healers, and cannot attack whatsoever. The most supportive, and generally most helpful class, is often protected from death. Use staves to heal, an cannot attack.

TROUBADOUR: A healer on horseback. Generally royalty, or at least rich, and always female. Cannot attack, and have low defenses and offenses, like cleric/priest, but can take a couple more hits, and his higher speed, but aren't as vigorously protected as clerics/priests. Wield staves to heal, cannot attack.

I warned you, but at least you got loads to choose from! Sorry for the whole TL;DR thing :P

    Sorry, but do you think you could space this out a bit more? Just copy and paste the template, and it'll all be good. Also, I knew for a fact Tactician would be taken instantly as I said there could only be 1 XD. Thanks for the character, anyway!

    Name: Nobody knows his real name for sure but he is known as "The Wolf"

    Class: Thief

    Appearance: Wears the skin of the wolf that died saving his life. Wears artificial claws which he kills with and also uses them to pick locks. He has the head of the wolf over his. He has a wolf heart as a pendant and inside is a picture of his original parents. He puts on black paint all over his skin to make it look like in the dark that it's just a regular wolf.

    Personality: Sneaky, smart, mischievous, conniving, persuasive, quiet, resourceful, loyal, fast, serious, mysterious.

    Backstory: Not much is known for a fact about him but legends say that when he was a kid, a bear mauled his parents, and he was also about to get eaten until a band of wolves bought him enough time to escape. He escaped and hid for 2 days until he went back to the wolves and was accepted with open arms (or paws or whatever) the wolves taught him the art of stealth kills. He finally got old and strong enough to where he could steal for money and food. He also is a hired assassin and is one of the best. You can tell it is the work of The Wolf when you hear a howl exactly 7 minutes after the victim is dead and exactly 3 claw marks across the victim's chest. He then returns and sleeps with the wolves, his only remaining family
