Title: New RP, The Hunting Of Kemmler
Description: Not sure what about, i are a noob xD
Zraal - March 14, 2008 08:33 AM (GMT)
Hey, i would like to play in a RP, i am not sure how to do so, i have never do it before, but i need one GM, and a couple of party members.
I would really like to play one involving wood elves, around 50 years after the fall of Hienrich Kemmlers at the Battle of The carins, these wood elves have been hand picked by the everquee herself, to hunt him down and defeat him once and for all, to prevent another assult on the Carins
If you want to play, ask, and post a paragraph or 2 about your character..
(not sure if this is right but hey)
I am Zraal Darksong, a member of an alter kindered, after being exiled from my wardancer kindered for resons unknowen to you. I always carrys around my scythe, we are unseperable, I have has cut down many a foe who stood in my way with it.
I stole the scthye off one of Hienrich Kemmlers minor leaders in the final major battle of the Carins, the scythe was enchanted be Kemmler himself. I have no idea of the power behind this weapon.
I also carrys magical arrows, said to be made by Daith himself, which allow no foe to defend himself against their wrath.
In a group Zraal is the quiet one, the one with dark secerets, and a dark past to match.
He knows his way through the forests and all the secerts of athel loren, he is a skilled navagator, but he is also a skilled fighter to have by your side.
(i hope that is ok)
Thanks, i really hope we can do this :)

I know its to do with Wood Elves but may i beg you to let me be a High Elf? Sort of on a mission to seek out magical items left by Kemmler and bring them back to Ulthuan. If yes then he would probably be a dragon mage (minus the sun dragon of course) who wants to prove himself to the loremsters. Or a shadow warrior who has so far been able to blend in with the Wood Elves acting like an informat to the High Elves about their movements etc and gets caught up in this mission.
If not then i guess i'll come up with some kind of Asrai character...
Also the Evergueen is in Avelorn, Ulthuan (or the real one is) not Athel Loren, your talking about Ariel Queen of the woods but not the Everqueen. Sorry had to say that being a High Elve player now :p
Not sure if Elberneth wants to GM it he did a good job in the Moonlit Hunters thread only cut short by exams i think (which are ending soon i hope). If not then maybe just maybe i could try to be the GM after learning some pointers from Elb's work.
Zraal - March 14, 2008 07:34 PM (GMT)
Yeah, you being a high elf would be ok, kind of a tratior later on maybe? Planing to help us and get the items before killing us all or somthing. Even being a wandering high elf (exiled or whatever) would be cool.
Hope to see your character soon :happy:
Silly Dragon Elf the Third - March 14, 2008 09:13 PM (GMT)
Thank you very much.
Birthplace: Caledor, Ulthuan.
Class: Dragon Mage
Wizard Level: 2, Chooses his spells from the Lore of Fire
Special Rules: Warrior Mage, Reckless, Speed of Asuryan, Valour of Ages.
Equipment: Sunstaff, Dark Red Robe with many bronze elven runes, various small bottles of ingredients used for Alchemy. A well worn book (abit burnt too) kept inside a tanned leather bag.
History: Started learning the fine art of magic from the loremasters of the white tower of Hoeth after showing some natural affinity with magic in his time as a spearman. But he was foolish and careless with the winds of magic and soon after mastering one the eight lores (Fire) he grew tireless of the lectures and felt the call for battle. So taking one of the famed Sunstaffs he made his journey back to his homeland of Caledor to awaken himself a powerful steed, a Sun Dragon! He had heard of many Dragon Mages simply walking up to one of the beasts and called it by name and as if by instinct it awakened and the two would go to war. But as Authir approached one of the slumbering beasts no name came to mind and all his attempts to waken it failed. He left the mountains with anger and then went to Lothern. Here he snuck aboard one of the trading ships bound for the Old World to seek out both power and prove that he was worthy of riding one of these mighty beasts! A personal journey too to find out more of himself.
Not long in his jouney did he come face to face with a waystone indicating the start of Athel Loren and here his real journey started...
Hope Thats ok.

wouldn't that make you the shadow warrior from the warhammer online video???
Zraal - March 14, 2008 09:23 PM (GMT)
wow, yeah, that is great, better than i could have done!
Nightstalker do you maybe want to play?? Then we will need maybe 1 or 2 more payers and a GM
Silly Dragon Elf the Third - March 14, 2008 09:30 PM (GMT)
Thats nonsense! You can certainly do just as well if not better! Just add alittle more detail (like age etc) and do it in Italics (that always makes it look better! (lol) ).
Well PM me a few details and i could write something up for you. Give me the basis of what you want (a powerful offensive mage like mine, or a rogue scout guy or an incredible archer) and i can whip something up.
I got a feeling this could be a good RP so please join, but only join if you are going to be active and enthusiastic with it.
SeanyPrawny - March 14, 2008 09:34 PM (GMT)
I love hte rp's here and want to join if through a cheap way of writing the battle of the airns spot for Ecthelion however that character is growing dull I feel and since the other rp is technicly still going but just on hold till Elb gets back I think I will give this one a miss. Or be GM lmao though I doubt my GM'ing abilities so I won't go there :happy:
Silly Dragon Elf the Third - March 14, 2008 09:42 PM (GMT)
Come of it Seany you know as well as me that the other RP is on its last legs so to speak. Its been awhile since its last post and seemed very random and without a real focus (objective) to go for, hunt vampires, with no name of one or clue of where it was like WTF. I think its dead, it was good while it lasted but finished like all RPs here half way through.
If you want to GM thats great! Just look back at what Elberneth did, the way he posted etc and kinda copy that method as i think its great and what we missed for all the other RPs. The only reason why it failed was it was too much like the others, mercenaries and such. This one is different, to do with Wood Elves (mostly :shifty: ) and is actually in line with GW fluff! :O
Edit: No offense or anything but could you refrain from using Ecthelion? Firstly his banished from Athel Loren so why would he be on a mission given directly from Ariel? Secondly we already know his background personality and is a tad dull (only a tad though) to write new ways of finding him out (meetings etc). If you want i'll give you my other character i thought off when writting Authir. A wood elf too.
SeanyPrawny - March 14, 2008 09:52 PM (GMT)
lol I wouldn't use ecthelion as I said I to am bored of his antics lmao though it would have been before his banishment when he was a champion of the glade of eternal moonlight :wink: but enough of that lmao. If nobody else will I will GM though I am a last resort :happy: but be warned, in an rp commanded by me people die. horrible, horrible deaths!
Zraal - March 14, 2008 09:53 PM (GMT)
I will tryagain on my own :happy:
Name: Zraal Darksong
Skills: Skilled Tracker, and Combatant
Eqiptment: Think leather armour with elven runes of power skittering across its surface, A
Scythe with runes created by Kemmler himself, A bow, and powerful arrows
History: Zraal is a member of an alter kindered, after being exiled from his wardancer kindered after he took his sythe from the body of one of Heirch Kemmlers main Liuetenants after the battle of the Carins, his kindered did not approve of this weapon, let alone the stealing of it from the bady of an enemy. This scythe has power that Zraal does not understand or does not know how to control.
Zraal has spent the last 50 years traveling the great expanse of Atheloren, and fighting in many minor battles along the way, which has lead to him becoming a skilled tracker, and Fingher.
His solotude would have continued, but the Queen of the Woods, Ariel summoned him, giving him, and a group of hardy warriors the task of finding, and destrying Kemmler, once and for all, so that he shall not attempt another attack on the Carins.
Zraal was picked for this task because of his ex-kindereds part in defending the Carins agaist Kemmler, it was said that Zraal even delivered the final blow on Kemmler, and has not been the same since...
I hope that is a bit better :)
Silly Dragon Elf the Third - March 14, 2008 10:01 PM (GMT)
A few spelling mistakes but very good! See what i mean by the Italics? :happy:
I am eager to get this started now but i know we have to wait for others to join first.
If its the case of before he left Athel Loren Seany then by all means use him. Its your choice. I was so close to using Altatar Averrod for whom i have written quite alot about already, but had to restrain myself as i thought "why the hell would he hunt Kemmler?" so didn't. A dragonless Dragon mage was my third choice in fact after a kind of scouty noble either from Asrai or Asur.
Zraal - March 14, 2008 10:07 PM (GMT)
I am really eager to get started too!
And, spelling mistakes, yeah, get used to them, i suck at spelling haha (lol)
I might not be able to post for a 9ish hours or so in about 1-2 hours as its saturday afternoon, and i will be having warhammer club thing, with my friends (going to play some lizards in a 2k :smile: And hope fully a couple of warbands games)from between 12-1pm, till about 9pm *ish* I am looking forward to it :smile:
SeanyPrawny - March 14, 2008 10:12 PM (GMT)
I'm quite liking the Idea of being GM now lmao so count me in on that part. It will give me a start for when I make my own rp (its been sittig in the eternal area for ages lmao.
Both your characters are great, should prove to be an intresting rp to say the least :p
Zraal - March 14, 2008 10:15 PM (GMT)
Is there anyway we could suck another 2 players into this? :wink:
SeanyPrawny - March 14, 2008 10:39 PM (GMT)
It would be great if the newest members join like lone warrior and lord nirsi. get them involved more with the site :) come on guys join in.
Silly Dragon Elf the Third - March 14, 2008 10:45 PM (GMT)
Actually Lone Warrior did say he/she wanted to do some RPGing. Hopefully will see this and join in with us. Hey put it in the scrolling announcements bit! B)
SeanyPrawny - March 14, 2008 10:56 PM (GMT)
Exellent hope he does. Good shout on the announcments done and done.
Zraal - March 14, 2008 10:57 PM (GMT)
Awesome!! Scrolling away!!
Warhammer clud in 1 hour, will be able to post in about 7-8 hours :) Have fun, and get recruiting!
Darkblade - March 15, 2008 12:29 AM (GMT)
*Bang head against table not to fall asleep*
Your hero is here! (lol)
Well even if I think its really bad to just leave the other RP to die like that I guess there is little that I can do without Elberneth around. And well, with Seany as GM the post count will stay high.... (lol) You practicly live here or what Seany? :wink:
Hehe well, I hope I can play as Sillies trusted bodyguard. This would make for loads of interaction and I could also possibly pull out my oldest character :wink:
Hehe ohh and so far its acctualy 1-0 to the Not GMed rps. After all its only The Mercenaries we have EVER played to the end.
Ohh and one little thing. Ain't these characters a bit overpowered? :ph43r: Anyhow if its ok with you Silly I will play your trusted bodyguard and will post it up when you say ok :wink:
SeanyPrawny - March 15, 2008 05:59 PM (GMT)

First off leave me and my refrigerator box alone I have nowhere alse to go :sad:
Second this one too will be finished one way or the other weather people like the way it ends or not. I will be enforcing strict rules for post durations -.- basicly if you don't post within 3 days your character gets eaten by something.
Finally. I agree about the over powered however would Ariel choose you to go hunting the dreaded lich if you weren't uber?
Silly Dragon Elf the Third - March 15, 2008 07:59 PM (GMT)
A dragon mage is not Uber. Its a level 2 wizard and is all in all in ever respect to the same as the one made by GW, except without the sun dragon. If i did have it then it would be overpowering.
Being my bodyguard? Fluff wise my character is out to prove his worth so wants to fight himself. Also he left Ulthuan alone. Maybe you could be someone sent to bring him back? But then perhaps we should have more Asrai in this RP. Perhaps me and Darkblade could be Asur but thats it and everyone else is Asrai. Maybe Seany could be the leader made to be in charge of the warband, also the GM so will control most of the games events and NPCs.
Yeah seany lives here but i'm his lodger...
Zraal - March 15, 2008 08:32 PM (GMT)
I agree, we need more asrai, not asur, remember this mission was given out by Ariel herself, Im still not sure how Sillys char will be pulled into this by Seany yet, lol
SeanyPrawny - March 15, 2008 08:39 PM (GMT)
As soon as I know what everybodies characters are and who is actually playing you will find out lol. I'm impressed but then again I'm still impressed i figured out how o log in :wink:
Darkblade - March 15, 2008 10:52 PM (GMT)
Awwww But Asrai are SOOOOOO boring :p How many hundreds of those have I not already made? (lol) And as for Uber I refared to all those glowing elven runes.... Poor skeletons...
Ahh well, since we all seem to be so hell bent on Asrai. I have yet another question. Can my character come with his unit? Or does he have to be alone. As they are hunting such a powerfull foe I guess unit makes the most sense.
SeanyPrawny - March 15, 2008 10:58 PM (GMT)
Aye it doesmake the most sence but then it encourages talking to ones self basicly and that is a pain. also if I am to GM this it would be unfair for one character to have more 'wounds' than others. Perhaps a limit of 1 other character each though I wouldn't get too attached to them if I were you.
Darkblade - March 16, 2008 12:19 PM (GMT)
We really are grumpy in this RP ain't we :dry: No Asur, no squad! Just the plain old boring Asrai's :< Really in my option it should be everyone Asrai or everyone choose for themselves. As thats kinda the most fair thing, then again you play High Elves Silly so I'll leave it be. It still sucks though.
And well I guess its no point even asking if I could play as the enemy...... And by your last comment I presume you will just kill of any second characters Seany? :dry:
faile - March 16, 2008 01:57 PM (GMT)
Are Bret knights a possiblity? As many of the Lords around Athel Loren Have close relatonships with the WE's and Ariel could quiet easily be seen as the Lady by a Bret Knight....
If not I'll have to think about Asrai....
SeanyPrawny - March 16, 2008 06:25 PM (GMT)
Look if we are going to do the hunting of kemmler after being chosen by ariel everybody has to be wood elves otherwise whats the point we might as well do another random rp. Having more than one character makes people talk to themselves more than others in the rp and is harder for the GM to keep control should they split up or what ever.
I think if people want to be what ever race they want then we should change the story of the rp completely, really its Zraals idea so his choice.
Oh and ofc I would kill off your spare character. With all the danger we'd be dealing with a few lives will be lost. so why not the extra's. :wink:
Silly Dragon Elf the Third - March 16, 2008 09:51 PM (GMT)
Fine do hunting Kemmler and all Asrai. But i just find it hard to write much about the woods. I am more of a noble city dweller hence why i have started collecting HE (though they were always close to my heart i just simply choose WE first becuase the old HE were all cavalry and not my play style).
So do the RPG but do it probably without me. I am sorry the Asrai are a cool race but i just can't motivate myself to write a cool character for them anymore unless i do Harguin Halheart, the High Elf commander who leaves the Asur to become Asrai. But in the fluff i have written he also leaves the Asrai to return to the Asur. And i don't want to use him as like Altatar Averrod i can't have them die as it would not fit my fluff at all which is why i don't use them in RPGs.
Good luck with the RP though, i am not being grumby i just can't write anymore about an elf who loves trees. Simple as.
Darkblade - March 16, 2008 11:41 PM (GMT)
No no Silly. You go ahead and be Asur. I marely wished to state a point, not to make you leave the RP. I'll make a Asrai character tomorrow. Now I am just to sleepy. And I had such a stressy day! Well tomorrow I'll get a character up after work. :wink:
SeanyPrawny - March 16, 2008 11:52 PM (GMT)
Aye silly if you leave then its a third of the characters gone (lol) I have already got an Idea for your character to e implemented anyways. Infact everybody make whatever you want, hell be kemmler if you wish. I'll find a way to make it work or I'm not god! (please don't be kemmler it'd be awquard (lol) )
Silly Dragon Elf the Third - March 17, 2008 07:20 PM (GMT)
Well if its ok to others to have any race then i'll remain and be my dragon mage character that is already up.
When is this RP going to start?
Darkblade - March 17, 2008 07:39 PM (GMT)
Name: Heinrich Kemmler, the Lichemaster

SeanyPrawny - March 17, 2008 08:02 PM (GMT)
I will start the rpg when we have enough people. We're searching for a powerful necromancer in a forest that is full of the bones of the dead lol need more than 2 mages and one warrior. once another joins I will begin.
Silly Dragon Elf the Third - March 17, 2008 09:12 PM (GMT)
Level 4 wizard? i feel inadequete now...maybe i could bring that dragon along after all...nah only joking my character is suppose to be young and such so level 2 suits me well.
I agree we need some more people to join but surely there will be NPCs for you to kill and do random stuff with (like their insides come alive and eat them from the inside etc). So there will be numbers just few of us who play actual characters (who hopefully don't die until the end at least). :p
Darkblade - March 17, 2008 09:40 PM (GMT)
Myuhahaha! Seany asked for uberpowers to handle Kemmler! I give uber power to... well kill a sit load of thingies at least (lol)
But ye we need more people, and loadsa NPCs that can die! :smile:
SeanyPrawny - March 17, 2008 09:52 PM (GMT)
oh don't worry there will be lenty of eternal guards ready to die for you. that will be Ecthelion's contibution to the group :wink:
@Silly: I can't promiose anything lmao :happy:
@faile: please do join the rpg, a brettonian would be nice though unmounted would be prefered.
Darkblade - March 20, 2008 12:44 PM (GMT)
*jump up and down* I am waiting here! (lol)
SeanyPrawny - March 20, 2008 02:30 PM (GMT)
I'll give today for peopel to have 1 more chance to join in then will start it 2morow regardless.
