#1964880 Overworld RP

Posted by Mystics Apprentice on 21 October 2017 - 06:54 PM

--Queen Shiva -- Kilkis Seres Campgrounds--

 

Dawson took flight nearly as abruptly as he had arrived, leaving Shiva to her troubled thoughts of her comatose son.  The queen didn't have much time to linger on these disturbances, however, as her attention was quickly arrested by others needing her.  One being Eclaire.

 

The rose-haired woman fell to her knees, uttering final words of defeat before succumbing to her fatigue.  With a start, Shiva slid to the forest floor, catching Eclaire before she could collapse with a hard fall.  Gently tucking Eclaire's head under her chin and on her chest, she smoothed her bangs away from her pallid face.  She did not look well.

 

"Of course you haven't failed me," said Shiva tenderly, hand bracing Eclaire's head against her.   "The human king is but one object in this conflict.  His death alone wouldn't have resulted in the end of the war.  So long as there is hope the humans will proceed to fight, and right now that hope is Raiden.  Only once his resolve diminishes will this war end, though I do not foresee such an event happening without his death."

 

Shiva shifted so that her legs were along one side of her body, her knees sideways to accommodate the other woman on her lap.  She didn't know if Eclaire could hear her any longer, but she continued speaking regardless.  "Thank you for being my support and comfort through these difficult months.  I believe it was fate that brought us to meet, which I am forever grateful for.  Even if things were difficult, and perhaps not as they should have been, I am still grateful for the time that we have had together.  Thank you, Eclaire, for seeing this through.  For believing in me, even when no one else did."

 

The ice queen rose her head from the ground upon the approach of her enchanted armor friend.  For a moment it was as though they had lapsed back in time, Shiva the small, helpless child who craned her neck to look up imploringly at Maxis for guidance, for support. He declared that he needed to speak with her, to which she nodded.

 

"And I you."

 

She gingerly set Eclaire on the ground, lacing her fingers with Maxis' armored hand.  Something she used to do as a child, and something she hadn't done in an incredibly long time.  Leading them away to a more private area, the blue-haired queen turned to face the armor.

 

"What words do you have for me, Maxis?  Where do we stand?"

 

(I feel as though someone else had approached the queen, though I can't find the post or the character.  If I missed it, sorry, and please let me know and I'll edit my post.)

 

--Everyth Castanova -- Outskirts of Mystras' tents-- Encountering Henry--

 

"Well, well, it would seem the Dreadnaught lives."

 

Stepping from outside the shadow of a tree stood the familiar dark mage from the World Below.  Human, much like Henry, and yet, like Henry, so inhuman.  Everyth tucked a lock of hair behind her ear, her silver streak of hair contrasting against her otherwise dark wavy locks.

 

"I didn't expect any less from you, though for some reason I didn't expect us both to survive.  You look like you have seen better days, though.  What happened?  That big hunk of armor didn't find you, did he?"  She placed a finger on her lips, thinking back to how eager Maxis was to rip Henry apart limb from limb.  "I tried to stop him, but you could probably imagine how well that went over."

 

Her chest and torso were solely covered in bandages, and black trousers were heavily clad in bandages as well.  Her feet were bare on the blades of soft grass, her shoulders and arms exposed to the cool night air.  A soft smile played on her lips as she approached Henry, and for once her cocky and sarcastic demeanor was not worn.

 

"I am glad that you are alright."

 

--Curvis Sourati -- Leaving battlegrounds with Aqua--

 

The brunet cocked a brow at Aqua's resolve.  "Hide in the woods?  Alone?" he repeated.  Perhaps he were too acclimated to his own world, but any girl hiding in the woods alone didn't seem like a particularly good idea to him.  Even with her magic.

 

"I do have an idea, though perhaps a foolish one," he admitted.  "I . . . would like to meet your queen.  I feel that, if I may speak with her, I might be able to find a resolution of peace.  I do not want war.  I feel that we should return home, but I have gotten as far as I possibly could with my king and Lord Raiden.  Perhaps your queen would see things differently.  May I?  I mean, that is . . . would you introduce us?"

 

It was a risky move, and perhaps a death sentence, but Curvis had to at least try to make a difference in any way that he could.

 

--Yevgeni Malachite -- Kilkis Seres healer's tent--

 

The blond shrugged off healing when it was proffered to him.  His wounds were not great, and he didn't want to waste time in finding out where they stood in the current conflict.  His desire was to seek out Queen Shiva, but she was already tethered to that Retainer of hers and her enchanted armor friend.  Word spread quickly that she was planning to meet with Raiden alone that night, which likely wouldn't result in anything good.  Good things never happened when those two were alone.

 

Curiosity perhaps got the better of the blond, and despite his better judgment, he stole into the tent where the mysterious fighter had been whisked off to by a white mage.  There he found Nergal, though whether Nergal saw or recognized him remained to be seen.  Could he have solutions?  Would Yev truly be interested in his proposition?  He partly doubted it, but even still . . . he couldn't resist.

I'm sure that I'm massively responsible for the slowness; my apologies. I wasn't doing well over the weekend, but I'm feeling worlds better and ready to get things going again! I'm going to try to post either tonight or tomorrow, though most likely tomorrow. Life has been a comedy of errors and time isn't my friend, but I am very determined to see this RP through to the end. I owe you all at least that much, and I'm very grateful to those who are so dedicated. : ) We have such an awesome team, and I think that's why Overworld has thrived, to be honest.

But yes, I will hop to it, get things rolling, and hopefully be a better contributor in the days to come. : )


#1964182 ~The Happy Journal~ (Roleplay)

Posted by Mystics Apprentice on 11 October 2017 - 07:12 PM

Genesis

 

The wheels on the redhead's book cart clicked as it ran over the cracks between tiles, his red robe billowing behind him.  It had taken him all morning to get the books back in their proper order, sorting them alphabetically, and now the young librarian was making his rounds to place them all back on their proper shelves.  Genesis approached his first shelf and began to unload, slipping heavy leather-bound novels in their place, when he heard voices on the opposite side of the shelf.

 

"I was wondering if you had anything related to...um...diaries?  It sounds strange, but I was just wondering if there was anything on that...or of supernatural occurrences that maybe have happened in past around here? Like a record book or old newspapers?" 

 

His hand froze mid-air, heart hammering in his chest.  A diary?  Supernatural occurrences?  That was when a horrible thought struck him: did others know of The Journal?  Genesis had possessed it for as long as he could remember, feeling compelled to read each day's entry and stick to it.  He thought it had been his little secret, and yet here was someone inquiring about it.  This unnerved him.  Immensely.

 

"You mean the Journal, right?"  It was James' voice, and then Genesis heard footsteps.  He scurried away quickly, hoping that he wouldn't be noticed by his fellow librarian.  They were definitely referring to the Journal, and they definitely knew about it.  Genesis tried to think fast, wondering what he could possibly do.  Would they turn him over to authorities if they knew he possessed it, or burn the Journal?  Anything supernatural was heavily frowned upon, and he figured that his tampering with the journal wouldn't be much different.

 

Out of a desperate urge to attempt calming his nerves and finding a way out of this, Genesis returned to his desk, sliding the Journal out of a secret compartment of his desk.  Yes, he kept it at work with him, partially from studying it, and partially because he was just fascinated with it.

 

"Befriend the servant and his friend. You should find them rather easily."  It read.  A frown furrowed Genesis' brow; he was terrible at making friends.

 

Even still, this seemed promising; perhaps this servant and his friend would help him.  He finished sorting away the remainder of his books before leaving the library, entering the streets in search of his new servant friend.

Sex: Male

Age: 21

Appearance:

Spoiler

Occupation: Librarian and poet

Skill/Magic: Increased stamina, speed, agility, and strength, with basic fire spells.

Personality: Prideful, arrogant, and self-centered.  Genesis often keeps to himself and his books, writing whenever he managed to scrape up the free time when he is not working within the library.  He has few that he calls friends, and has difficulty warming up to people to begin friendships.

Bio: Genesis lives in a country home of his own, coming from wealthy parents and having an education that permitted him to obtain a substantial income as a librarian.  Very few come and go from his home beyond himself, and even then he mostly only leaves to attend work.  He isn't particularly social.  As a boy he has always loved to read and write, desirous to become a famous writer one day as those whose work he cherishes.  

Origin: Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII

 

I'm going to do my best to keep up, even if the posts that I provide are short. : )  I worry that if I wait too long that I will miss out on acclimating my character into the world and with others.




#1964028 Overworld RP

Posted by Mystics Apprentice on 09 October 2017 - 07:00 PM

--Queen Shiva -- Kilkis Seres camp--

 

The ride to the Kilkis Seres campsite was a brief one, perhaps less than a mile from the battlefield.  Shiva wasn't sure where they stood in terms of troops, but one of their flanks had fallen in combat, and she needed to assess the situation to determine how to progress.  Further, she hoped that Raiden would honor her request and meet with her in private.  Perhaps it was a dangerous--no, foolish--idea, but she couldn't resist.  It was time for her to step up and be the queen that she wanted to be, not the queen that she was forced to become.

 

Not long after arriving she was greeted by her son's friend, the Palico.  Her eyes grew wide as he uttered the condition of her son, her lips a thin line.  Raiden had done this to him?  After he'd promised to protect their son . . . .

 

Her hands clenched into fists along her sides, which she had to pin to her body to keep from shaking.  "Are there healers with him?" she demanded.  "If not, take a couple of our finest with you to his abode.  Keep me posted on his condition."

 

A part of her wished that she could request to go with Dawson, to rush to her son's side, like she always used to if anything would befall him, but she knew it wasn't an option.  She had to be the ruler of Kilkis Seres, and a ruler couldn't desert her army during the middle of war.  Shiva strode toward Dawson and gripped his shoulders, looking into his young face with a solemn expression.  "Tell him that I love him, and that I thank him for being by my side, despite everything that I've made him endure."

 

--Yevgeni Malachite -- Departing the battlefield--

 

At least Draksis had a fair amount of sense to him, even if he were following Raiden.  This man drew the line, determined how far he were willing to go for Raiden's cause.  At least he wasn't a blind follower like the majority of the soldiers he'd encountered.  Heck, he were probably more sensible than even Shiva.

 

"The Overworld needs humans like you," Yevgeni said to Draksis at last.  "And for that, I wish your endeavors a success.  I only wish that it were someone other than Raiden leading it.  The man . . . has a way of following his passions a bit too recklessly."

 

"My name is Yevgeni Malachite, but simply Yev will do," he responded.  "Till we meet again, Sir Draksis, to which I'm sure that we will."

 

With a slight bow, Yev left Draksis and retreated from the battlefield.  He had to know who blew the horn, and also had a need to speak with Shiva before it was too late.  Things had a potential to either play out perfectly into his hand, or fail miserably, and he had to ensure that it was the former.

 

--Alderon Niles -- Mystas Camp - near death--

 

The king barely made it to the healers in the back rank before collapsing.  He didn't remember being brought to the healer's tent, or the spear being removed from his shoulder.  It was bandaged heavily, making it nearly impossible for him to move that side of his body at all.  When he opened his eyes he did not feel pain, but instead a numbness that crept over his entire body as well as his mind.

 

Visco . . . . 

 

It occurred to him in that moment that, if he died now, no one would save his daughter.  His kingdom would be without a ruler, and Visco would remained cursed forever.  He had to at least ensure that someone would live on to accomplish his ends, but whom was there to trust?  Draksis?  The boy that fancied Visco?  He couldn't see either from his position, but rather a darker-skinned fey sobbing over someone with bright-red locks.  A frown furrowed the king's brow; he'd seen him from somewhere before . . . .

 

It was then that he realized who Helios was, and a shower of guilt washed over him.  He had been so superior, thinking nothing of putting the boy through torture and experiments only to benefit his people and save his daughter.  Seeing him now, in his own world, it suddenly felt very wrong that Alderon had treated him like a mere creature worth experimenting upon.

 

He opened his mouth to speak, but no words came forth.  His world became a blur of colors, and the numbness enraptured him entirely.  A fuzzy warmth enveloped him as he greeted unconsciousness once more.

Posted by Mystics Apprentice on 03 October 2017 - 03:16 PM

Hi, life got a bit hectic with some crap at work.

 

Posted now.

It happens, so no worries.  I did just want to make sure that you saw Shiva's post where Kilkis Seres has blown the horns of retreat, and now troops are returning to camp and withdrawing from battle.  If you did want to continue the fight, though, that's perfectly fine, but I just wanted to make sure that you hadn't missed anything.

 

I quoted where I mentioned it in the sign-ups and tried to actually quote Shiva's post, but every time I try to switch threads and multi-quote it was deleting everything so I eventually gave up. : P

 

 

Also, Shiva has declared that Kilkis Seres troops withdraw, but it is up to you guys if you want to wrap up your current battles first or retreat.  I feel that it is time to move forward in the RP, as we have approached the end of September and the initial timeframe for the war.  Does that work for everyone?

--Ren Mordecai-- Healers Tent with Helios--

A bitter smile stretched Ren's lips, dark eyes locked on his dear friend.

"Don't cry, Helios. We will meet one day again. My story is over, but you . . . have so much left to live for"--his fingers brushed against the wind drake stone around his neck, reaching it toward Helios to give him but lacking the strength to remove it--"live on, Helios. The worlds depend on you. Be my legacy, and do what I could not. I . . . Pray that there is a happy ending to this tale, one that I want you to see through to the end and beyond. I want you to share our story. Mine, and Ariana's. I love you as a brother, and always will."

His hand tightened around Helios' hand briefly, before going limb and lifeless, the light fading from his eyes as he lowered his lids.

"Stay . . . strong, Helios. My friend."

And that was the end. Ren Mordecai had departed from this world all too soon, to join hands with Ariana in a place where Helios could not reach. Not now, but one day, one day the three would reunite, to rejoice and be together once more.


#1963407 Happy Birthday Mystics! <3

Posted by Mystics Apprentice on 29 September 2017 - 07:12 PM

H-Hey, Mystics! Uhh, Happy Birthday to you! I apologize for not being here on your birthday, I only heard of it since just a few minutes ago... >.<

But Mystics, always know that I am glad we were able to talk together, and to do some roleplaying as well. You always wanted me to have my way if possible, even if it caused a bit of complexity between us at times, but it's that hospitality that makes you who you are, the kind of person many of us want to be around. :) I feel that your hard-working life deserves an equally awesome reward, even if you feel like you don't need it. :3

I hope you're doing well, and once again, Happy Birthday, Mystics! :D


Rock on!

Aww, thanks, Veemon!  I actually don't have my birthday in my profile, so it's perfectly understandable that you might've missed it.  It's the thought that truly means a lot to me.

 

Thank you for being a wonderful friend in like, from our RP, 3DS games, chats, and much more. : )  It's always and is a pleasure!

 

Happy late birthday Mystics. I may not know you very well, but I hope you had a wonderful birthday. :)

Thanks, Neptune!  I really appreciate your thoughtfulness.  Your birthday was this month, too, right?  For some reason I'd been thinking it was near mine when I saw you mention it.

It is with deep regret that I believe I'm going to allow Ren to draw his final breath.  It's such a hard decision to make, but I think his death here will be more meaningful than his life, even though I would love to see Helios and Ren's interactions. :(  I was nearly in tears as I wrote it.

 

I'll still hear opinions on whether he should really go or not.

 

Also, Shiva has declared that Kilkis Seres troops withdraw, but it is up to you guys if you want to wrap up your current battles first or retreat.  I feel that it is time to move forward in the RP, as we have approached the end of September and the initial timeframe for the war.  Does that work for everyone?

Happy birthday Mystics! May your day be filled with blessings and cake!

Peace!

Thanks, Yuya!  It's much appreciated. : )

 

Gods, I am just the worst with birthdays. ;-;

 

A Happy Belated Birthday to you, Mystics! Sorry I missed it, friend. :( Hope you had a good one! :D

Edit: Aww, the image is broken. Dagnabit.

No worries at all!  Thank you for the birthday wishes, my friend, and my special day was a fantastic one.  Interestingly your cupcake image wasn't working in your post, but upon quoting it I'm seeing the image now.  Go figure!

 

Happy Birthday! One year older. May you enjoy as much cake as you desire on this awesome day!

Thanks, Stardust!  That looks like one awesome cake and pet that you're presenting me. :D  Is that an ice cream cookie cake?




#1962989 Overworld RP

Posted by Mystics Apprentice on 24 September 2017 - 10:59 AM

--Alderon Niles -- Mystras: Center Flank VS Eclaire--

 

The king held his claymore outstretched, prepared to take the brunt of her attack with his blade, when he suddenly found himself shielded by a genie instead.  He'd seen Rufus briefly back at Lord Raiden's villa, though knew little about his abilities or background.  Genies always fascinated him.

 

"Thank you, Sir Contralto," Alderon managed, placing a hand on his chest.  "You have spared my life, and it is with much regret that I shall take my leave."

 

The king glanced around.  His warhorse, Javelin, was seemingly down for the count, and there was no quick way for him to escape the battlefield.  All that he could do was sheath his sword and press onward, though blood was flowing freely from his wound, and he felt weaker with every step.  Even once he did retreat from battle, he wasn't sure if he were going to make it.  Perhaps the Mystran healers were even more experienced than he'd imagined.

 

Alderon retreated from battle.

 

--Ren Mordecai -- Mystras: Left flank VS Meksis--

 

Blood poured from the wound that Meksis had made, cleaving bone, scale, and flesh all in one fell swoop.  His darkened tail fell to the ground, separating Meksis from the black dragon who cried out something fierce.  His form became unstable, and after mere moments the dragon's form had been replaced by the much-smaller redheaded young man, knees in the dirt and sword thrust into the ground.  A wound from his lower back seemed to be bleeding profusely as he drew in shaky deep breaths.

 

"You are unlike any fey I have ever researched," he murmured darkly through gritted teeth.  "You are indestructible, and your magical stores seem almost unlimited. You could probably take on an entire army and be the last one standing.  Unfortunate for me, I am no army, and have no way of penetrating your defenses."

 

Releasing his sword, he cupped his hands around his mouth and shouted his friend's name at the top of his lungs.  "HELIOS!"

 

He hoped that his friend would answer his call, if he could hear him.  Ren could barely move, and stood no chance of escaping Meksis on his own.  If Helios were there, however, he could help him get away.  While Ren was indeed prepared to die in battle, he wasn't envisioning it anything like this.

 

--Queen Shiva -- Kilkis Seres: Center flank VS Soren and Mariel--

 

The queen stared as Soren humbled himself at her feet, a frown furrowing her brows.

 

"I cannot trust someone who is so willing to have a change of heart, all to surrender his new ideals like the drop of a hat.  There is no honor in switching allegiances so freely," she stated flatly, watching Soren, the Fool of the Ages, with a look mixed with disgust and pity.  "However, I have no interest in taking your life.  Leave here, and think long and hard about where your loyalty truly lies.  Find a path you find worthy of fighting for, and then embrace it.  If I were to welcome you back today you may betray me tomorrow, and that is no way for any man to live a successful life."

 

Not that she didn't understand his wavering heart.  No, hers wavered on a regular basis, and she wished that she could relay to Soren, perhaps more than he knew.  Loyalty was something that had been engrained in her from a very young age, however, and the fact that he would switch his allegiance so willingly bothered her something fierce.  Perhaps it was that very same loyalty that bound Shiva to her ways, despite her differing heart.

 

She was dismayed, however, when Mariel treated her former comrade so brusquely, but had no time to react when both swords came upon her.  Shiva brought hers up defensively, and it was a blade dance between monarch and angel for quite some time.  Mariel's speed seemingly increased with each blow, and Shiva was hard-pressed to keep up.  Eventually she missed a beat, and one blade met the thin sleeve of her upper arm, not hesitating for even a moment as it sliced it clean through and embedded itself into her flesh.  She drew in a breath as ruby-red blood beaded upon her pale-white flesh before running down the length of her arm.  The damage wasn't intense, but it was enough that would lower her sensation and reaction time within that arm, and perhaps cause more complications with a lack of blood.

 

Shiva cried out and placed a hand on the ground, causing ice to crawl all along the soil and blades of grass.  An ice pillar emerged from the ground beneath her feet, raising her into the sky with it.  More spears made from ice formed behind the queen, before she leapt off the pillar in Mariel's direction, sword outstretched and spears a short distance behind her.

 

--Yevgeni -- Kilkis Seres: Left flank VS Draksis--

 

The blond titled his head, weighing out what Draksis had to say.  This man was perhaps the most intelligent human he'd met so far, having a sound mind not to trust Raiden, and with a loyalty he greatly respected.  "Yes . . . .  Even I cannot deny the points that you have made perfectly clear.  There is no other way to attempt saving your world other than trusting Raiden, though I do hope he chooses to keep his end of the deal when this is all over.  Or, perhaps I should rephrase that"--a smirk stretched the corner of his mouth--"if he has the means to keep his end of the deal.  Does even he know how to lift the barrier between our worlds?"

 

Draksis met Yev's rapier with his own longsword, shoving the blond back a few paces.  He then sliced the air diagonally, to which Yev managed to bypass by hovering in the air, his wings fluttering slightly.

 

"Not bad, not bad.  They really train all of you how to use a sword down there, don't they?" Yev's heels hit the ground, his hands gripping his elbows as he watched Draksis with curious green eyes.  "No match for our men.  Kilkis Seres soldiers are useless when it comes to weaponry.  I'm sure that your forces would have no issue crushing them, save for those actually trained in magic."

 

"It's not too late to be hired on as a swordsman, you know.  Not that I could ever see you betraying your king, but unlike the queen I see the usefulness of humans within our world.  Your quality of life could improve, our resources could expand.  It would be a win-win for us all.  Don't you agree, Lord Draksis?"
