please read befor posting.

first and formost please excuse the dislexia it makes spelling dificult for me, you may notice things spelled 2 or 3 ways i know about this. please bare whith me.


This is based off an idea for a book that i am working on whith a few other friends of mine. (you will hear about on a friend of mines thread called the Antolin War but by that time it will be caled Vaymer)

The Name: Helea is named after the Greek sun god Helios, though the Heleans do not call the sun god Helios the sun god is there patron of the large parthanon of gods which they worship.

Note: this dose not take place in grees this story takes place on a world of my own. however when i was first thinking about the story it was about a magical greek city that eventuly destroyed itself. i have made meany changes to the plot since.

Overvew: At this point in Vaymarian history the world is changing at an alarming rate. the citystates that once was the dominat governmental stucture of the world are falling to a quickly growing Helean Empire. magick that was given to the Heleans as a gift from the gods is leaving its mark on just about evry trade from Archatecture to war. the barbareans of the northern ice sheets are coming down in to grassy fields of Helea looking for food and warmer climates. this will take place just befor a period i call the Helean civil war, whether or not we will get involved is yet to be decided.

Religon: Religion plays a major role in this world. there are four cheif Gods, The God of Air, the God of Water, the God of Earth, and the God of fire. there are many lesser gods such as the God of the sun and many more, if you can think of it there is a god for it.

Playable Races: Race on this RP. refers to which nation you are from.

Helean- From a glacier carved valley in the middle of the Arlet moutains they have since conquered their way across the green fields of Corneth and Kalar. they are in high favor of the gods. they stand between 5-8 ft. and 6-8 ft. and weigh from 170-280 lbs. they are heavier set than most and are realatevly strong. they are skilled whith a sword and there government is ruled by the zealous king Renatolen. Helans speak one language, Helean; they also have advnced spells right of the bat.

Corenthian- Found Far west of Helea in the green fields soulth of the Alexloth mountain reigon. they where conquered by the Helan and quickly assimalated into Helean culture. Their patron God is the god of Fire which is one of the four chief gods. Corenthians stand from 5-1 ft. to 6-2 ft. and weigh from 120 - 200 lbs; they are light weight and fast but strong for there size though they dont pack as much of a punch as a bruser Helean. Their skills with weapons are well balenced. they also speak two languages: Crenthean and Helean

Kalar- the Kalarians are from a valley in the Marbel Moutains of the East. They are a war like people traning their children to fight from a young age. they are most skilled with a sword but they can weiled anything like they where specially trained with it. they have short tempers and do not hesitate to take blood for an insalt. on the battlefield, they are well trained and take orders like a squad of well trained U.S. Marines, they stand from 5-5 ft to 6-4 ft. and weigh between 150 - 230 lbs. Their government stalemated a war against the Heleans several years back and has since had an uneasy alliance against the northern barbarians. they speak mostly Kalar, thoough a few picked up helean as a second language.

Barbarian- barbarians come from many different places and most live a nomadic life style. a few have made alliances with the Helean Empire and are allowed to live on the outskirts of the empire. three powerful tribes are the Kilikens, Kibarians, and the Gaventheans, all three are similar in languages and culture. they all stand between 6-2 and 8-2 and weigh between 240 - 400 lbs. Their best weapons are their strength and sometimes a bludgeoning weapon. Though there are mages they take penaltes to the spell because they are not to bright. they speak the language of their village and sometimes that of a neighboring tribe. some speak Helean to communicate with the empire that houses some of their people.


Jobs: you can compare a job to your class. each job gives you different skills. examples of jobs are...

Militia- your job is to protect a city from danger whether it is theives or an invading force. Militia are lightly trained whith a sword, sheald, and spear. your rank in the militia defines your pay. ranks are similer to that of the u.s. military.

Mage. your job is to study the 8 energies that flow naturally through the world and discover uses for them both in and out of combat situations. you may use magick in battle and to heal your comrades; even bring them back from the dead if you are powerful enough. your pay is based on your mage rank (Defined further down).

Rogue- you are a theif and as such your job is to steal things. you recieve no standard pay but you can keep what you steal; but be careful - the long arm of the law might find you. you are well trained with light weapons and you may use a lock pick with better proficiancy than anyone else.

Soldier- you are in your nation's army. you have the same combat style as a militia but superior training. unfortunatly your duty to the army locks you down in one place for a while. your pay is based on rank just as the militia but your pay is slightly higher.

Archer- you are skilled whith ranged weapons and a crack shot at that. you are in the army or the militia which guarentees rank based pay, but sometimes you can work for yourself which means you lose the rank pay but you keep all your own proceeds from your work.

Assassin/Ninja - silent but deadly, you work for yourself killing for pay. you are skilled whith small, one-handed weapons and throwing weapons. you may also use first and second level spells. Ninjas are more prestigious than assassins and slightly stronger but are more likely to be a target for other Ninjas that you compete with.

Not mentioned- anything that i didn't cover here can be added although i want you to clear it whith me Via P.M. if i approve it you may use it.

Pay and rank: pay will be received every friday unless i am out of town. i will base pay only off of rank (if you are a rank based player)

Mage rank: is as follows

Lvl 1. Apprentice, Lvl1 spells which are Verbel spells only, relatively weak. pay is 100 gold
Lvl 2. Novice, Lvl 2 spells which are hand signs only, slightly stronger. pay is 200 gold
Lvl 3 Mage, Lvl 3 spells which are verbal Combined whith hand signs. strong spells Pay is 400 gold
lvl 4. Journyman, lvl 4 spells which are verbal but require material componants. very strong. pay is 600 gold
lvl 5, Master, lvl 5 spells which require handsigns, incantations, and material components pay is 1 platnum, 200 gold
Lvl 6 Arch Mage, lvl 6 spells which require Material components, and hand signs, incantations can now be done silently. pay is 2 platnum 400 gold


Military rank pay system-
Private 50 gold
Lance corporol 70 gold
Corporol 100 gold
Seargant 200 gold
Staff seargant 250 gold
Master seargant 500 gold
2nd lieutenant 700 gold
1st lieutenant 900 gold
Captain 1 platnum
Commander, 1 platnum 200 gold
General 1 platnum 600 gold (For every star add 500 gold to your pay)

please note rank system may change without notice should i find it dosen't work.

Money system:
100 copper pieces = 1 silver piece
100 silver = 1 gold piece
1000 gold pieces = 1 platnum piece

you may buy supplies while you are in a town, city or village, or from other people on the R.P..

i think that pretty much covers everything (Phew!) we will begin the r.p. when 4 people join us or by thursday at the latest, once we start you may join in at any point.

Have fun!

EDIT by The Shredder: I read this whole thing over and made all the spelling changes I could find. so people don't have to decipher this.
Also, what are Ninjas doing in Greece? Where are the pirates?

yes spell check would be nice.

No you recive pay as a malitia man only. thow you study magick you study on your own and not threw the mage gild so you recive no finances from them.

Now to start this thing


Opening:

The towers of Helea cast shade over the crowed marke street. today seems to be a bisy day for shopers who dart back and forth between the maket stalls who sell eanything from food to Fine jewls. Darren Shininglight walked up the street looking for eany sine of of theaves whom seame to try to steel eanything that is not tide seculy to the ground and even than they may try eany way. today seames to be a slow day for theaves maby the persher of the law is finaly begining to dwindel back there numbers. however somthing catches Darrens Alert eye, but it is not a theafe. a man raped in a wight robe standing in a doorway to one of the markets meany Cafes and is signaling to Darren to aprotch him.....

*Darren hesitates a second before approaching. As he does, he readies a spell for a quick cast if he needs it. His hand drops to the hilt of his longsword as he walks, his eyes scanning for potential traps. As he approaches the man in the white robe he takes a quick glance into the shop to see if there is anyone in it before he speaks.*

What do you need citizen?

"Darren Shininglight, my name is Kazadin I am a servent of the Royal house of Healea and personal mesenger of his Royal Majusty Prince Argonest, brother of High king Renatolent."

Kazadin, semes a bit stiff althow he he had been around Royals his whole life.

The man continued.

"Prince Argonest has a vary important task that needs to be acomplished. I will breefe you on this task over tea, or eany other drink you might enjoy."

Kahzadin eantered the shop and walked to a sone toped tabe and sat down...

I appreciate the Royal Prince's Attention, however I must decline at the moment, I am on duty and cannot spare the time. The Bazaar won't police itself after all. Perhaps this evening I will be available to meet you back here, and we can discuss the task that his royal higness has for me.

*Darren bows to the messenger, then turns to leave the cafe. His hand is still on his sword, but his posture is more relaxed. As he steps out in front of the cafe, he scans the visible bazaar, his eyes narrowing as he spots someone at one of the stands. The man was wearing a tattered red robe with a worn black cloak over it. He looked both directions before his hand darted out and grabbed a loaf of bread, slipping back under the cloak. Darren waited a moment to see if the booth owner had spotted it, then sure that he had not he moved to intercept the man. After several moments of moving through the crowd, he stepped up behind the man. Darren grabbed him by the shoulder and spun him around, the bread falling to the street at the man's foot.*

Now, what do we have here? Stealing are we?

*The man's expression turns frightened, and he falls to his knees begging Darren not to turn him in.*

*The man's plea hits a soft spot in Darren, for before he joined the militia, he had been in more or less the same circumstances. However, on the other hand, he had a duty to fulfill. He stands there, contemplating how to deal with the issue for several moments. He then leans over and picks up the loaf of bread. Reaching down he pulls the man to his feet and pulls him off to the side, in the shadow of another tent. Handing the man the loaf of bread, he reaches into a pouch at his waist, pulling out a pair of copper pieces.*

Take these, go back and pay for the bread. And if I catch you stealing again, I will personally speak against you at your trial, and recomend a rather gruesome punishment.

*He hands the two coins to the man and watches him run off, making sure that he stopped at the stand to pay for the bread. After he was out of sight, Darren sighed, knowing that his commander would rip him a new one if he found out about the encounter, then continued his rounds. The rest of the day passed uneventfully, and after he had changed out of his Milita Uniform, he returned to the cafe where he had said he owuld meet with Kazadin about whatever the important mission the Prince had for him. He steps into the cafe, his eyes scanning for the messenger, his hand draped across the pommel of the sword still swinging at his hip.*

Kazadin spoted Darren first.

"Darren"
Kazadin Caled and jesterd for Darren to stit opesit him at the small marbel toped tabell. The cafe was near empty at this time of day and it was near closing time, since it is not wise to consume to mutch caffeen befor bed. however a few patrens siped on tea and talked about the events of the day between themselvs.

"would you like some tea? or prehaps somthing to eat? we may be hear a litle while."

Kazadin said.

*Darren seated himself at the table, his back to the wall, he spun the chair around so that the back of the chair is against the table. He orders a glass of water and something to eat before he addresses Kazadin.*

You said earlier that His Royal Highness had a job for me... what is it that he requires from a low-ranked member of the militia. I am sure there are more qualified men and women in the military, or even in the higher ranks of the militia.

Kazadin orders tea and a slice of a chocklet cake for himself befor adresing dearens question.

"the job is a simple." Kazadin said "we need you to go to the Town of Cannen, we lost contact whith the Town 3 weeks back. Prince argonest whishes that we send a small teame to figure out what is going on, we suspect that a freek blizard since it is early spring and shutch things are know to hapen this time of year. your in perticular is to go to Cannon and Restablish contact whith the govener. that is the first part."

A waters arives caring a large silver teapot and two silver cups. she fills one whith Tea and sets it down in front of Kazadin. She thean departs ariving shortly after whith a clay pituer and poors some water in to the second cup and sets that one down in frunt of Darren.
Kazadin Sips some of his tea thean contiues. "as for why the Royal house has chosen you in proticuler, first and formost this time of year the barbarians of the north migrate soulth word so the army is buisy fending theam off. And in the malitia you where the most recomened by your capten even over your superior oficers. your capten sead in proticular this would be a good way to prove yourself."

The food arives. Derren had a pork soseg whith potatos, and Kazadin had a Cake that most chocohalicks would die for. his cake cosnsited of chocklet cacke coverd in a thin lare of dark chocklet to hold in the moister, whith a dopel of creem on top*.

(* i whish i could take credit for the cake but it is a rip of of the Zachha Tart whitch is an Austrian Delicasy)

*Dirk take a bite of the sausage, chews it for a moment the swallows, washing it down with a drink of the water.*

Ok. That explains why I was chosen. But you said that was only the first part. I take it there is more. And seeing as I have never been to Cannen, I will require a guide to help me get there.

*Dirk spears a potatoe with his knife and pops it in his mouth while he awaits Kazadin's response.*

*Darren coughs at Kazadin's reply, the piece of potato landing on his plate. After clearing his throat, he responds.*

You want me to travel with a gods damned Kalaran?

*He sits back after the shock of what he was told washes away. He considers it carefully before he replies.*

Ok... I will do this... But if that damned Kalaran gets himself into a jam, he can expect to get himself out of it. He isn't one of our kinsmen, and can shove it. Now that I have put this out there, when do I leave?

*Darren finishes his food, then stands and leaves. He returns to the barracks where he sleeps for the rest of the night. The next morning, he purchases the nessesary supplies for the task at hand. He buys food, and a few wineskins which he has filled with water. When he returns to the barracks, he dons his light leather armor and grabs his longsword, the blade of which had been inscribed with runes by one of the mages that had been teaching him to harness his magical powers. Strapping the sword to his side, he mentally runs through the incantations to activate his spells. Checking in with the officer in charge, a lieutenant from the army, he informs him that he will be gone for the next few weeks. After that he leaves the city, following the path to the mountain pass and the lake he was told to meet the Kalaran archer. He was at the foothills when he stopped to make camp that night. It was just before noon when he arrived at the lake. He looks around, one hand on his sword should the archer try anything hostile.*
