Wow. Excellent sign ups so far, guys! I'm seeing a lot of characters that I like.

Hair Color and Appearance: Black hair,long enough to cover his eyes

Long enough to cover his eyes? In order to operate in the guard force, you need to be able to see past your hair, you know.
Could I get a bit more of a description? Because I have no idea who Murtagh is, or what he looks like.

EDIT: Oops. I guess we posted around the same time, HJC... I missed your post. Alright; let me read over it...
'Kay, just one thing.

Preferred Weapon(s): He prefers to weild dual spears or shortswords as his weapons.

Um, dual-wield spears? Shortswords your guy might be able to get away with, but dual-wielding spears would be nigh upon impossible.

Hey Werewolf, your not going to except all of them correct? It's only been a day since you posted this and it already has more sigh-ups than most RPs see in a week.

Well, no, I'm not. Once everyone has signed up (the sign ups will close in about a week or so - in truth, I was waiting for Vorgain to come back and sign up, at least tongue.gif And Justin might also sign up, and there are a few other members and various Wylfgard fans who said they would that I'll be waiting for), I'm going to pick out a certain number of people (the number I won't say, so that people won't try to convince me to either increase or decrease it, which is what always happens when I reveal what that number is) that will get into the RP.

El Gaspeth! Does this mean we've all gotta sign up for the exact same occupation? Aw, I was hoping for something with a little more of that.

I don't suppose I could grovel to be a criminal of sorts, i.e a non-gang criminal that knows the goings on and for a fee is helping out the guards? th_shiftyninja.gif

Yeah, well, I decided to try out something less complicated... not to mention, a lot of people were asking me to include some of the main characters of the LotF series somehow, and I also wanted it to take place before the first LotF book (so it would build up to its beginning\hint at it to get all of you interested so you'll buy it when it comes out tongue.gif ). good.gif Sorry to disappoint.

Well... nope, sorry. It'd probably complicate the mysteries too much for this particular story. wink.gif

EDIT: Okay, Jay, again someone posted a sign-up while I was posting something else. laugh.gif Let me go over it...

Oh well, it doesn't really matter. I don't much feel like signing up to be a guard, so it's unlikely I'd sign up... I thought perhaps some sort of thug-type person who can ask around the gangs for tidbits of information without being killed would be an idea... sleep.gif

Well, you could be a corrupt guard who accepts bribes, and other unlawful things, or some kind of vigilante or someone who would be on generally the same side as the guards (just as long as you aren't too ridiculous, like a superhero or something laugh.gif ). But if you were a criminal, then practically all of the mysteries of the story would be at least partially spoiled for you and everyone would already know what the criminals are doing by just reading my replies to your posts.

Ooo! That works!

Name: Kade Kariv
Age: 28
Race: Imperial
Height: 5' 6"
Eye Color: Green
Hair Color and Appearance: Light brown; kept neat and short, two small black dots, possibly tattoos can be seen on his head.
Facial Appearance: Nothing remarkable, no abnormalities, except for his eyes looking smaller than they are due to his low brow. Constantly has the appearance of a scowling face
Physical Appearance: Wide torso and shoulders, with little, if no fat. Reasonable build, keeping this appearance by staying in shape.
Clothing: Light grey long-sleeved shirt, faded tan pants with tough leather boots.
Alignment: Neutral Evil,
Preferred Weapon(s): Two-Handed Broadsword.
Personality: Kade is a rather unusual man, out for his personal gain, and at the same time, the good of Illikon. He is quite mild-mannered, and enjoys taking bribes from local gangs so he would turn the other cheek, because of the continual bribery, Kade has become considerably wealthy. He is no brute however, he respects his fellow man, and the other guards he works with.
Preferred Fighting Method: Melee
Fears: Being poisoned, scared of Werewolves and has a phobia of drowning.
Parents and their Status: Kade's father, Callum, is a well-off blacksmith, supplying Illikon with fine weaponry for years, he is proud that his son serves Illikon. His mother, who recently passed away, was supposedly of noble blood, and was disowened for marrying a commoner.
Other Family, Siblings, and their Status: Kade's younger brother Simus seeks to join his brother on the guard when he is older. He currently helps his father forge weapons and other items.
Acquaintances and Knowledge: Kade knows most of the other guards well, and gets along with them, but is unsure of whether or not to call them friends.
Family History: Kade's family dates back to a long service in the Military, his great grandfather supposedly was a general. Kade's father himself planned to join the Illikon Guard, but after a serious leg injury, he inherited his own father's workshop, and settled down with his wife.
Character History\Biography: Kade spent the most of his youth watching the bustle of Illikon, and helping his father with his work. He has extensive knowledge of weapons, and is highly skilled with swords. He joined up with the guard a few years ago, and enjoys his line of work. Despite his relative good nature, he may have let serious criminals slip through the guards fingers due to his weakness for easy money in the form of bribes.

Race: Human/Elemmagic user((I do not know what the hang you call them...))

Well, a magic user isn't really a race, and the race section was intended (in this RP) to be filled by either 'Imperial' or 'Half-Northerner,' since those are the only races available in this RP.
However, sorry, Jay, but I can't allow you to be a magic-user of any description. wink.gif Sorry.

QUOTE
Clothing: ... Leather bracelet with 'WYLFGARD ADMITTANCE'

Wylfgard... admitance? What is that supposed to mean?
But, I can't allow the bracelet, either. Not only do I not have any idea what it's supposed to mean or signify, but the term 'Wylfgard' is totally unknown (and unused) by virtually everyone in the mortal realm now. It's an ancient term, for it's what the Shifters used to call the mortal realm, and there are VERY few people and\or creatures who have, in some way or another, learned of the ancient Shifters and their terms, though few of them still use the term 'Wylfgard,' but among those who do are the Five. Therefore, basically, no one in Illikon even knows (and they certainly don't use) that term.

QUOTE
Alignment:Lawful-good. Though in magic he is considered chaotic by mages.

Um, how can he be lawful and chaotic at the same time? unsure.gif

QUOTE
Preferred Weapon(s): Elements. Though rarely uses them only if necessary.

Again; sorry, but no magic allowed. wink.gif Magical abilities are VERY rare, especially in humans, and are regarded with fear and suspicion... no one is allowed magical abilities in this RP.

QUOTE
((His parents' were adventurers before they settled in Wylfgard for several years))

Um, Jay, you keep referring to 'Wylfgard' as if it's a specific place\region of the world... it's the world. So, even though they would have absolutely no knowledge of the term 'Wylfgard,' Jay's parents would've already been in Wylfgard - they always have been in Wylfgard, because Wylfgard was simply the Shifter's term for the entire mortal realm.

QUOTE
Fears: Jayson is scared to death of several odf the knights, mostly because they treat him like dirt and when he was younger, was beaten after being confused for a thief that fitted Jayson's description. He never recieved an apology.

'The knights' would never beat a young boy, or treat him like dirt, because they are honorable and righteous - and especially if that young boy had not really done anything wrong. Even if he was confused for a thief, knights probably wouldn't be the ones bringing him in (they have better things to do than arresting random thief boys in the street), it'd be the guards, and they surely wouldn't beat him.

QUOTE
Other Family, Siblings, and their Status: ... Jayson has sevewral family member living in the asian regions, allowing him to have come to them and learned martial arts.

Uh, if he's in the Empire, it'd take Jay a VERY LONG time to get to the East, even if he did somehow have some kind of relatives there (which he probably wouldn't at all, seeing as how it's very, very, very difficult for anyone in the East to get to the West, and vice-versa), he wouldn't be able to reach them easily at all - at his age, he might've just died trying to reach it, for he'd either have to cross over a mountain pass that isn't really much of a pass at all (it's called a pass, but it's actually just the lowest region in the mountain range The Jagged Edge), cross through The Wastes (a barren wasteland in the far South), or cross over the extremely icy and cold waters of the far North.
The 'Asian regions,' are called the East, by the way. wink.gif

Um, Jay, the stat system is numbers, not words. You have 35 points to spend (yes, I'm afraid I'm subtracting some due to your age; hope you don't mind... but let's face it, if you wanna be a kid, you're a kid), and each stat cannot go below 1 or above 10.

As for when I said they settled in Wylfgard, I meant Illikon... Now when I see the name changed from Castle-illikon, I confuse it... :/

Fears: Jayson has a fear of knights in the city, as he finds their large and intimidating shadow frightening. He is also afraid of werewolves, though has never seen one, he prays not to. He is afraid of severaal of the guards as well, though most of them are very good to him.

Magic: Eh, no magic, forget it ever happened. wink.gif

Allignment: Lawful good.
