home for strays

do you have a lonely rp character from a group long dead, wandering alone out there in the world with no place to call home? feel like you're constantly shouting into the void when you write stories?
 
come join us at the orphanage, where good characters to go be reborn, long after the death of your rp about hipster witches/calablasas/the upper east side/unfairly rich bloggers/whatever the kids are doing these days.
 
how it works:
1. your character should be one that you've written for a while (like 4-5 months +), not one from an rp that's only just died.
2. you can make connections with people already in the group if you want, or not, it's up to you.
3. there are no auditions or anything - just make a set with your character's bio, where they're based geographically, links to any collections, and links to key stories that everyone should read to catch up with your character's storyline. tag @alycat to get your name added to our character list.
4. read other people's stories.

Glaive, Devour. {gd}

Glaive, Devour. {gd}

Created 9/1/17.
 
+ This group is SAO-inspired. +
 

Eight months ago, life was a bit more ordinary. Dragons certainly had nothing to do with your daily routine, and you definitely never imagined that soon your everyday reality would entail life and death situations set against a virtual dreamscape—
 
Thanks to a twisted scientist named Andrew Widlore, the innovator behind NerveGear, your mind and the minds of thousands of other gamers are trapped inside of a fantasy MMORPG called Guild of Glaives.
 
Widlore {rather the apparition of Widlore that appeared in level one's sky eight months ago} explained that, in order to exit, all one hundred levels of the game must be beaten, but only one Guild {either Seelie or Unseelie} can escape. The losing Guild will be trapped forever- or at least, until their physical bodies give out.
To complicate matters further, Widlore confirmed that in-game death results in real-life death. And, in the beginning, many likely disappeared from your side because their loved-ones on the Outside didn't know that forcibly removing the NerveGear also meant death.
 
Widlore, now in hiding, suspects that both sides, fear and panic growing day by day, will eventually devour each other and no one will be left to clear, much less leave, the game.
 
You plan to prove him wrong.

✥ Quick description ✥
 
[Eight months ago, over 10,000 players logged into the Guild of Glaives {GOG} mainframe, via VR NerveGear, for the first time only to discover that they could not log out.]
 
- People get trapped in a full-submersion online fantasy game called "Guild of Glaives".
 
- Dying in the game results in dying in the real world.
 
- Objective: Survive and beat the game's highest level to free everyone in your Guild {Seelie/Unseelie}. Losing Guild is trapped forever.
 

 
✥ Glossary ✥
 
-Beta testers-Players who were given the opportunity to view/play GOG in its closed beta. They are often accused of having an unfair advantage or of cheating.
-Caim-Home/safe territory. Ex. The Descend is Unseelie dominated, therefore, it is largely Unseelie caim.
-MMORPG-Massively multiplayer online role-playing game
-NerveGear-A helmet that stimulates the user's five senses via their brain so that players can experience and control their in-game characters with their minds.
-XP-experience points. Earned by completing levels, tasks, and side quests as well as discovering/collecting objects. The types of XP a player earns dictates their class while their XP in total is their overall score.
-VR-Virtual Reality
 

✥ Class Information ✥
 
King/Queen - Highest Scorers
There are only two players- each Seelie and Unseelie- who are given the title of King/Queen. These two are easily identifiable by the crown floating just above their heads {white for Seelie, black for Unseelie}. **Highest scorers tend to fluctuate, but for the past three months, they haven't budged. Spindle sees that her "seat" is well protected through force, while Throne, who is splendidly brilliant, cannot be easily surpassed by anyone in her Guild. That said, Inferna is close to closing the gap in their xp. Soon enough, there could be a new Flowering Queen.
 
Mages - High Magic XP and full mastery of a "religion"
This class is trained through one of the three academies on level 1, and through them, they specialise in a specific type of magic {or "religion"} - black {Unseelie}, white {Seelie}, or grey {either} - each with its own book of spells. Their Health depletes with the use of magic for combat, and therefore mages need lots of rest. It's not uncommon for them to pass out during skirmishes. Generally, mages are not effective at melee.
 
Knights - High Combat XP and semi- to full mastery of one of more weapons
The Knight class is the second largest class behind the Gardeners. Depending upon a Knight's Guild, they have a set of rules that they have pledged to uphold. The first, in both Guilds, is to support the King or Queen {which, they say, is a necessary rule in order to keep the Guild from descending into chaos}. Seelie Knights pledge to protect one another and others, especially Gardeners, as well as Seelie Caim, from, not just game enemies, but also Unseelie interlopers. Most Seelie Knights see themselves as something akin to a police force maintaining civility and order. On the other hand, Unseelie Knights pledge to protect each other and Caim, but they're very concerned with preserving their numbers for level 100 and would much rather you didn't drag them into anything needless. This cautiousness is the reason Unseelie {Withering} Knights outnumber Seelie {Flowering} Knights.
 
Rangers - High "Ghost" {Stealth} and Dexterity XP
This class prefers ranged weapons to melee combat and is mostly made up of quick-moving archers. They can also tame and/or train beasts.
 
Mage-Knights or "Witch-Knights" - High Magic XP and "religion" mastery + High Combat XP and full weapon mastery
The rarest and most difficult class to attain after King/Queen. Being skilled in spellwork as well as in combat and melee weaponry, Mage-Knights are an incomparable force in battle. Mage-Knights make up a small percentage of players in each of the two Guilds, and since they are elite among the other classes {something they're well aware of} and most have a fair amount of coin-wealth, they tend to keep to their own kind and pretend at nobility. Other weaker classes are, of course, looked down upon.
 
Healers - High Wisdom, Survival, and "Divinity" XP
Special Ability: The health levels of anyone standing near a Healer automatically regenerate. Healers are highly sought after by parties traveling up levels due to this special ability that can save lives in a dire situation. The trade-off is that Healers are extremely weak players and are easy to kill. Therefore, parties with Healers in them make sure to keep them protected in combat situations. Some Healers collect a commission for pledging to accompany a party up levels. **Seelie-heavy class
 
Rogues - Usually High to Middling Deception, "Collecting" {Thieving}, or Persuasion XP Combined w/ High "Ghost" XP
The rambunctious Rogue class is generally made up of unruly players who are largely uninterested in the bigger picture {i.e. working to escape GOG} and expend much of their focus on gaining coin {usually in a criminal capacity} and just having fun. Also known as the "Thief Class", the Rogue types like to group together in gangs and target the more insufferable, coin-rich Mage-Knights. **Unseelie-heavy class.
 
"Gardeners" - Low All-Around XP
Unlike every other class, Gardeners, who do not engage {i.e. earn xp} in the game, are unmarked. They tend to be really young children, pacifists, and/or those who feel incapable of handling a possibly lethal jaunt across fairy land. Gardeners are highly concentrated on the lower and safer levels.

To impede Seelie progress through the levels, Spindle has placed a blockade of Withering Knights outside the entrance of level 39 indefinitely. Meanwhile, she and her own entourage are figuring their way around the 40th level's boss--a massive three headed dragon that's proving indestructible. For now, 40 is a veritable war zone. Her blockade has been cutting down any Seelie to approach the entrance for almost a full week, prompting a lethal offensive by Seelie leaders and small, powerful bands of Flowering Knights. The battle is ongoing. Elsewhere, in the more densely populated levels, news of the level 39 clashes have set off numerous Seelie-Unseelie skirmishes. Whether you're in the thick of it in the upper levels or holding down the lower level caims, don't you have at least one bone to pick? One pretty face to ruin?
⋆STRENGTH 6 and over: You win your fight.
⋆STRENGTH 5 and under: You lose your fight. {Note: If your LUCK is 7+ you can still win.}
