Open Warriors: Desolation Island Sign-Ups

Discussion in 'General Role Play Discussion' started by An0maly, Feb 9, 2018.

  1. Note that you may make as many NPC's (non player characters) as you like, but I'll only allow 3 OC characters. Making NPC's is actually very helpful to me, as the more you make, the less I have to. I'd like to have enough cats, NPC or otherwise, so that I can fully populate the island.

    To see a full list of Character sonas, go here!

    RP is here

    Here are the basic facts that you should know:

    My clan system is intuitive, and based off of the fundamentals set in place by the books, but it's got a couple twists that make it that much more fun and complex. Each of the four clans have their own economies, with imports and exports. The clans use cart-esque items called Timbers to haul supplies.

    Ashclan

    Each of the four clans have their own economy. Ashclan, for example is kind of a boom town. They're a big, bustling clan, but on the inside, they need some improvement. Think Oppressive Theocracy.

    Three of the Four clans have a religion, but they vary greatly. Ashclan, which is a theocracy, ends up depriving the unfortunate cats and increasing the wealth of the rulers of the clan by taking small things from them over time. They believe in a cruel, distorted version on Streamclan’s God.

    Ashclan is based inside of a very small dormant volcano, so it's easy to access with the Timbers. They mainly export lava rocks, which surprisingly have many medical uses.

    At the beginning of this RP, Ashclan is directly allied with Gladeclan, unaffiliated with Caveclan, and are enemies of Streamclan. They trade with everyone except for Streamclan.

    Gladeclan

    Gladeclan is a scientific clan, and can be called a Technocracy, which gives the governmental power to those who are proficient in the nessacary trade. For the most part, everyone in the clan is happy with their government.

    Gladeclan believes that when a cat dies, they simply cease to exist, and also that they are ruled by a quartet of gods which embody the different fields of science used by Gladeclan: Anatomy, Herbalism, Astronomy, and Physics. (If I’m missing anything important, let me know.)

    Gladeclan sits around, on and between two large knolls in the middle of a lush and beautiful willow forest. This forest is known for its beauty, especially at night. (Think of the classic “moonlit forest” cliche.) They export herbal concoctions used for healing, and other practical scientific items.

    At the beginning of this RP, Gladeclan is directly allied with Ashclan.They actively trade with Streamclan, and are unaffiliated with Caveclan, but they are open to negotiations. They also trade with Ashclan.

    Streamclan

    Streamclan is a very simple, down-to-earth clan, which is perhaps the closest to the original Thunder, River, Shadow and Wind. Technically they’re a unitary state, which is the same thing as said original clans.

    Streamclan believes in what they call “The One True God.” They believe in the Afterlife, unlike Gladeclan, and they also call it Starclan. They call their God Holystar. Holystar is supposedly a sovereign god, possessing ultimate power. Streamclan missionaries can often be found in other clan camps, spreading the teachings of the “True Almighty, Holystar.”

    Streamclan is directly below the mountain that Caveclan sits on, and they’re based around the large mountain stream coming from Caveclan’s camp. This stream runs throughout the whole island and eventually feeds into the ocean. Streamclan cats are wily and clever, so they have devised a way to put their Timbers on water, like rafts, so that they can trade with Gladeclan, which is downriver. Streamclan exports gravel, with which their two trading partners use for different things. They also export cattails and other river flora, which can be used for bedding.

    At the beginning of this RP, Streamclan is on trading terms with Caveclan and Gladeclan, but is overtly hostile towards Ashclan.

    Caveclan

    Caveclan is a small mountain clan with no big government. They leave their citizens alone for the most part. The cats are taught in such a way that there should be no fresh kill pile, and that everyone should keep what they hunt. Exception goes for kits, queens and elders, of course.

    Caveclan is, for the most part, agnostic. Essentially, they believe that the existence of the celestial cannot be proven, but refuse to take a side on the matter.

    Caveclan is atop the mountain parallel to Ashclan, but it is, of course, based in a cave. Stalactites hang from the ceilings, and several inner chamber encompass the camp, which is where the cats sleep. They export stalactites that were broken off of the ceiling of their caves, which can be used as weapons, or, if shaped right, as basic tools.

    Caveclan trades with Streamclan, but aside from that, they are completely neutral.

    RP thread will be posted here as soon as it's made.

    Personality: Dovefeather has the appearance of someone you don’t want to mess with, always snapping at those who aren’t doing their work correctly. She has steeled herself against other cats, having gotten the scar that stretches along her lean from her own father. Although her she is mean on the outside, Dovefeather is actually very kind and helps those who struggle if they don’t know what to do. She always sneaks out at night to travel Ashclan territory and to find a place where she can put her barriers down
    Strengths: Very skilled fighter, agile, fast runner, doesn’t trust easily, knows her way around the territory
    Weaknesses: Doesn’t trust easily, has no more family left (her parents abandoned her and left her to die), she takes orders only from the Cardinal which usually creates a problem between her and the Bishops, does whatever she is told whenever she is told to do something by the Cardinal, only trusts the Cardinal

  9. Both sonas are accepted! And by the way, relations means anyone notable. For example, my two OC's, Lochwind and Deerhop are best friends. They're logged as so in their respective Bio.

  10. Would you like to create Rainheart and the representative, or would you like me to? Assuming both of the kits you just made are your OC's you can have at least one more OC. Of course, if you don't want to make either, I'd be happy to. :)

  11. I Have an image for Rainheart but she's more of an npc. >https://pokecharms.com/works/rainheart.27112/ She's a bit rude/stuck up and attention seeking but she actually has good reason. Two of her kits and her mate all died (in different ways)
    As for The representative i'm totally cool with you making it, unless someone asks for it later :3
     
  12. Alrighty. If it wouldn't trouble you too much, then could you use the template and transfer your Rainheart info onto it? You can do it at your leisure, or, if you want, I can fill in the gaps for you. Your choice. :)
     
  13. K i'll do that.

  21. Okay, Nagashy and Fanglistener are accepted, but Shadow isn't. he needs a suffix in his name. (i.e. Shadowclaw, Shadowstorm etc.) Other than that, your good to go.

  26. Wait, hold up. @LunarSilvally, your OC's are too young to have the jobs that they do. Let me know if you want them to be kits, or if you'll change the age of them to be at least 15 moons.

  28. Oh sorry yes they are not kits they young adults so I'll change the moon ages
     
  29. Geology. . . interesting. I'll put some though into it. That would make sense, in a way. Maybe they warn Ashclan to leave their volcano, or something. Accepted, as well, and thanks for the idea.

    EDIT: Halfstar is a little too young. Something like 28 moons would work better. :D

  39. Okay, so I've been looking at the boards, and I've decided to narrow things down a little bit. . . I'm going to cut down on clan spots so that I won't have to make so many NPC's.
