Ever played choice of the wizard? An RP in that universe would be pretty awesome also.
Is there going to be a discord for this?


There is, it's linked on page one, however I don't think I want you to apply, given past experiences and not really being given reason to think otherwise of you.

I'm willing to prove my dedecation to this rp and making it a pleasureable experience for all, I'm much less busy and much less likely to go into breakdowns (which basicly translate into gvh being a demanding dickhead who nobody wants to be around) than before.

I'm not really interested. You've made such promises before and it's never been true. So I'm going to say no.

Postby The World Capitalist Confederation » Tue Jan 15, 2019 11:55 am

NS Name: The World Capitalist Confederation
Character Name: Henry McGrovester (Born Isaac Hawthorne)
Appearance: Wears moncoles, and a suit. Generally looks like a regular Victorian capitalist, with nothing much to him that would indicate vamprism apart from his eyes and teeth.
Age (Recommended maximum is around 500 years old. Anyone much older than that wouldn't have reason to leave the continent): 490
Maker (AKA, the vampire who turned you. I recommend you make something of a backstory for them): Jacob McGrovester
City of Origin: (Where they were turned, not where they were born.): Portree

Abilities: Basic: Stealth, Intellect, Advanced: Hypnosis
Religion: Consulis Adonis to vampires, but masquerades as Roman Catholic to mortals. Children of Abraham secretly, and is actually head of the Children of Abraham.
Languages Spoken: Scottish Gaelic (Primary), English (Primary), Latin, French, German and Spanish.

Biography: Born in London, he, as a soldier, was stationed near Portree in order to quell Scottish uprisings. He once took a break in complete darkness, encountering a stranger who had recruited him, saying that God shall bless the descendants of Isaac and all that. So, being a religious man, he accepted the offer and went into the vampire's training. They went to Glasgow and he gave Henry an education in economics and the operation of business, hoping to make him influential in York or London, perhaps even being appointed as Quaestor. Whilst in the middle of his education though, Jacob McGrovester was shot in the head and executed for suspicion of taking part in the gunpowder plot, which they did, supplying the necessary material and assisting them across the way. After his parents were executed, he went to London and set up McGrovester Corporation, one which operated several factories of several types, grabbing resources from all over the country. As it grew bigger, so did London's GDP and McGrovester's wealth. Many now see him as the hero of London and the bringer of the Industrial Revolution.(Albeit this is false, but hey, ride on a wave good enough and people will think you made it) Meanwhile, he continued to educate himself in business and vamprism, learning to become a master of manipulation and thought, amassing millions of followers. Despite all of this, he went to America in order to pursue further economic gain, planning to expand McGrovester Corporation as he saw all those empty tracts of land....All those slaves to be had. So about a few years ago, he set up a large network of the triangular slave trade, slowly moving his operations to the USA, and to the rest of the Empire. Whilst not nearly as powerful as, say, the East India Company, he was still rich and powerful. In fact, about 50 years ago, he was appointed by the Senate as London's Quastor, due to his extreme influence over it. Being the most intelligent member of the Children of Abraham, he became its leader, amassing power on a large scale, with his title being now known as the "Firstborn of Isaac", and soon, perhaps, he may be able to take down Adonis, or at least be a martyr..there were a lot of those already though.

I've decided to scrap my planned character. I realized that if I did his human bio the way I first thought, he'd be insanely young for a vampire, less than a 100, and that's not what I was going for. Will edit my app for another character once I come up with a good alternative.

How's Vlad Tepez for a maker?

NS Name: Rhinocera
Character Name:Dracan Malifex (Formerly Dracanias Julius Malifex) Oft referred to as Dracan the Dread, throughout his life he has been known by many names to mortals, having assumed many identities, currently he is known as John Lemano, though his mortal alias is Sir Edward Leopold
Appearance:
Age (Recommended maximum is around 500 years old. Anyone much older than that wouldn't have reason to leave the continent): 1,847 (Born in 84 B.C, turned in 44 B.C
Maker (AKA, the vampire who turned you. I recommend you make something of a backstory for them): Adonis
City of Origin: (Where they were turned, not where they were born.) Rome
Abilities: (All vampires would have access to one of the basic abilities. Older ones would have both of them and an advanced ability as well) Wields both of the basic abilities and has attained a mastery of Hypnosis
Religion: (Any works, including the two Vampiric ones listed in the lore section) Worships the Roman Gods
Languages Spoken: Speaks a great many languages, most of which he does so as fluently as he would if they were his native tongue. His native tongue is Latin, however.

Biography: [spoiler]Dracan is the illegitimate son to a Roman senator and an expensive whore. The senator, in order to avoid the inherent embarrassment, never acknowledged the child as his son, nor did he ever disclose the fact that he was the boy’s father to Dracan. Dracan has lived the entirety of his extraordinarily long life without learning the identity of his father, who happened to be a man he knew his entire human life. While the senator never acknowledged Dracan as a son, he did serve as a friend and mentor to him, while also financially providing for the boy while ensuring he was cared for properly, all from the shadows.

As a young boy, Dracanias Julius Malifex idolized his mentor, a man who embodied all that Dracanias aspired to become as an adult. The man was bold, ambitous, accomplished, and seemed destined for greatness. After all, the roman senator that had fathered Dracan was non other than Julius Caesar himself. When he was but 13 years old, he bore witness to Caesar’s role in annihilating the gladiatorial revolt led by the legendary spartacus. This inspired him, and truly set forth the road to his mortal ambitions.

At the conclusion of his boyhood, he followed his mentor into the Roman Military, serving as a loyal soldier for many years to come, remaining with the great Caesar until the legendary Roman’s death. At first, he served as a page of sorts, following Caesar about the battlefield, though he did endure his fair share of combat, an art which he showed an affinity and natural talent for. Violence came naturally to Dracanias, and this suit his career quite well. By the age of 20, he commanded a cohort, by 22, the 1st cohort of Caeser’s legion. By 25, he commanded a legion of his own, subservient to Julius, of course. He campaigned in Egypt, in Gaul, against Pompey, wherever Caesar asked him to go he went, whatever Caesar asked of him he did. Upon Julius’ ascension to Dictator of Rome, Dracanias had become an esteemed, respected, and influential general loyal to only his mentor and oldest friend. His power extended over numerous legions, placing him on the level of Marc Antony, Caesar’s right hand man.

The day of Caeser’s assassination, Dracanias himself befell a similar fate. A number of thugs, under instruction from the senate, entered Dracanias’ home in the dark of night, brutally beating him to what they thought was his death. Dead, however, he was not. The brink of death was upon him. Many thought him to be dead, but agents of the Vampire Adonis. Adonis saw in the weakened and dying Dracanias an opportunity to both attain a new follower and seize control of Dracanias’ legions without having to go through the task of subverting his successor. Adonis turned Dracanias, and convinced him to swear his fealty under the promise of avenging Julius’ death, an offer Dracanias could not refuse.

Once he had survived the feral phase of the transformation, Dracanias resumed his role that he led prior to his vampirism. He used his legions to both avenge Caesar's death, supporting Augustus in the civil wars that followed, and to further Adonis’ own agenda. Many times those who were targeted by Adonis, be it vampire or human, met their demise at the blade of Dracanias or his legionaries. In short order, Dracanias was named a Praetor, using his power and influence in the mortal world while he grew in strength as a Vampire.

As the centuries passed and generations of mortals were born and died off, Dracanias grew in power and influence within the Vampiric society. At first, he was but a pawn in Adonis’ schemes. His mortal position more meaningful than his vampiric contribution. Eventually, however, he became strong enough to be of use. Often selected by the vampire consul to dispose of those who had become a hindrance, Dracanias, long since referred to as Dracan, became Dracan the Dread. Wielding a sword of great elegance, adorned with rubies and hilt and scabbard, crafted by the finest smith, mortal or vampiric, that he ever encountered, he slew many an enemy of Adonis and the society. A trusted servant to Adonis, his loyalty was unwavering and his wrath unrelenting. If a threat did not warrant Adonis’ interference, there was a decent chance that Dracan would be the last figure a doomed vampire would ever see.

Nearly a millenia past his transformation, Dracan had attained incredible personal power. His time as Adonis’ assassin not past, Dracan determined it would still be prudent to settle into a “home” or at least a defensible place of secrecy, where one may reside and/or rest without fear of discovery or interference. This is where Severious, an ancient vampire similar in age to Dracan, perhaps a century or a few younger, was of importance. His oldest friend and ally, Severious, settled as quaestor of Madrid. It was Severious that recommended a site for his old friend’s “home”, with the site being a remote and secure valley located by a remote Spanish mountain, a site that had become known to him through a vampire that had once walked the streets of Madrid, but had perished as a casualty of his own hubris, believing he was above the laws of vampiric society.

This valley was naturally hidden from sight, and was difficult to access if one did not already know the path. Fortunately, the path was know to Severious and imparted upon Dracan. Dracan, over the next few centuries, tirelessly worked at constructing his “home”, when his duties as Praetor allowed for it, and supplemented his own efforts by enlisting the help of enslaved humans as needed. The final product of his efforts was a small, but impressive, secluded, and defensible fortress. It was here that Dracan would lay his head to rest and even the fortress even hosted the consul himself on occasion.

Dracan’s fortune of power and influence met a crisis at the onset of the 17th century, as the Children of Abraham became a dire threat. While he hunted them relentlessly, murdering many, they did not sit idle and wait for their demise. A handful of their most powerful members assembled and attempted to assassinate Dracan, but failed. He killed 3 of the 5 while two fled, but was himself grievously wounded. His injuries were not fatal, but were nearly so. For a few years, he resided in his own secret fortress, barely capable of leaving his bed. He was cared for by his mortal servantry and a few loyal vampires assigned by the consul himself. Once the physical wounds had healed, he re-emerged, resurfacing (though Adonis and a select few were aware of why he had stepped away) to see the Children of Abraham decimated if not completely annihilated.

For nearly a century following his reemergence, he serves Adonis directly, traveling as a personal guard to his maker. Adonis did not wish to expose a member of his own bloodline to attack after Dracan was nearly killed, but the docility of being a glorified bodyguard suited the consul’s formerly preferred assassin poorly. Dracan asked of his maker and master that he be allowed to enforce the will of the consul as he once did, and Adonis although reluctant at first, eventually elected to allow it, as Dracan has proven that he still possessed the instinct, ability, and penchant for violence that had garnered him the reputation as Dracan the Dread. However, instead of releasing Dracan upon the old world, as one would have expected, he elected to dispatch him to the new world. After all, it was a long way from the established society and Adonis recognized that this distance could lead to unfamiliarity and that unfamiliarity could lead to dissent and disregard. Dracan was sent to New Spain with the mandate to enforce the laws of the society and to do so diligently.

Dracan made his way too new spain, living as a spanish noble from the shadows, asserting the will of Adonis upon those who dared violate vampiric law. Such violations were few and far between, with only a single vampire disregarding the law to a degree where Dracan was drawn to act. The offender had meddled in mortal affairs to a degree that had been deemed in violation of the law of restraint. The particular vampire was slain for his transgressions, and none dared follow the same path. Dracan’s incursion, however, did not sit well with the governor of the region, who appealed to him to leave. The governor, a vampire of nearly 8 centuries of age, felt that Dracan’s presence was no longer necessary in the city, instead simply unnerving the young vampires who made up the bulk of New Spain’s population. An appeal was made for Dracan to move on from the Spanish territory.

Typically, such a request would be rebuked, but this time it had legitimate merit. Dracan agreed to vacate New Spain, with the understanding that should issue arise, he would return and that the governor himself would be held responsible.

Making his way to boston, he now poses as an Englishman of the name Sir Edward Leopold, a man who met his demise at Dracan’s own hands. Most members of vampiric society believe him to have returned to the old world, though a select few, Adonis, the governor of Philadephia, and Severious among them, know the truth. He presently masquerades as a vampire of 3 centuries in age, by the name of John Lemano, an english vampire long since dead, with the approval of the consul. Lemano, as the Vampires within Boston know him, through the alias of Sir Leopold, is a wealthy individual who lives a life of recluse, though he appears to be an active member of the Bostonian vampiric society, with aims on Quaestorship. He believes the perceived absence of an agent of Adonis will allow the vampires of Boston to act to their true intentions, revealing who needs to be dealt with instead of having them fester in the shadows as the Children of Abraham once did. As Dracan has primarily operated from the shadows in the past, it is unlikely that he would be recognized by vampires within the society for who he truly is, within Boston at least.

#CoB1764 [APP CODE, DO NOT DELETE[/spoiler]

I addressed some of your concerns, including eliminating the over bearing mortal interference, the overlapping positions, and the unexplained weakness. Also threw in a new explanation for why he would be in Boston. Hope the edits are enough, this rp looks interesting and I’m hoping the original character I thought up can still be salvaged, despite the Caeser thing. I just thought it made Dracan a bit more interesting, as the fact will have little if any tangible impact on his arc, unless you decide that Adonis is aware, which could also be interesting.


I appreciate the effort, and it is a really well done app, but it really doesn't work. Like I said before, the son of Caesar thing, I really don't see how it's either neccesary or how it would fit in. A person of that much historical significance wouldn't just vanish from history, even if he was publicly he was just a protege, and even with vampiric influence.

Next up, as I said the first time, Adonis would never let one of his scions cross the ocean at this point in history. His bloodline is too valuable and the distance is far too great. Even if Adonis trusts Dracan completely, there are far too many members of the society who, while they are too weak and cowardly to strike at Adonis himself, would gladly take the opportunity to utterly humiliate or even kill Dracan.

Next, his age is a huge problem. I had a reccomended max of 500 for a reason. While it's true that a Praetor might have cause to visit America, even an older one, Dracan would have an incredibly hard time disguising his age. To put it in perspective, Dracan would be outclassing pretty much every other vampire, assuming the others stick within the reccomended age limit, by such a degree that all Player characters at once may not be able to take him on. If you still want to have an older more ancient Praetor, I'd say between 750-900 ish. I'll also probably hard cap age at 900 now.


Can't say I'm not bummed, but fair enough. I'll make a new character within a few days, I'm using google docs so I don't delete it three times again so hopefully it gets up sooner rather than later.

Right, so just to get started the first one will need some fixing. Just some small things, Senator's do not appoint Quaestors, Governors do that. The millions of followers thing is a problem, that would be a major violation of the rule of restraint, as would an East India style trade company, as also would being a famous violinist post-change. Most Vampiric busniesses can be very wealthy/lucrative, but they won't ever grow out of a local/national scale. A good example is that a Vampire may own a local restaurant chain, but not McDonalds. Lastly, if he is Quaestor of London, then he would be in London full time except for Senate elections near London itself, not across the ocean.

The Second app doesn't quite make sense from a timeline perspective that you'll need to sort out. If he was recruited into the Children of Abraham at creation then did McGrovester re-recruit him at some point? Also, if he went to America just after being made and he wasn't already 110 years old, he would be arriving nearly 80 years before Boston was founded. As I said above, being famous is a violation of the rule of restraint. Fix that stuff and you should be good.

Biography:
In 1748 Joseph traveled to New York with his family where he made his new home, he worked in docks, repairing ships and boats as such for a living, one fateful day in 1749 a small ship of local noble came to port, the noblemen ordered a repair of his ship via a messenger because he insisted on staying in his cabin, from time to time the noblemen wanted to meet one of the workers, from those visits they always came back dizzy and not remembering what happened, finally the noblemen ordered Joseph into his cabin, where it was revealed before Joseph that the noblemen are a vampire, Joseph returned as everyone else dizzy and not remembering anything, but this the case was different because memories of what happened in the cabin started pouring back

In 1750 Joseph finally consolidated his courage and went to the estate of the noblemen to see if it was only because Joseph becoming crazy or truth, he was granted entrance and a private visit with the noblemen, when they were alone, the noblemen confirmed what Joseph thought and explained in detail what happened on the ship and because of Joseph's fight against him caused him to be unable to properly perform Blood Spittle and Hypnosis, and so the noblemen decided to bestow upon him/ curse him with immortality and vampirism, to which Joseph wasn't keen on but surrender after being apprehended.

After being turned, Joseph studied stealth as his master valued it the most, one night his wife came to them with Joseph's only son asking about him, under allowance of his master Joseph persuaded both to be turned, everything went smoothly until 1761 when Joseph was returning from New York, he found his masters estate inhabitants murdered, no human servant or vampire spared, this was the day Joseph decided to use his masters surname, equip a hunting rifle, his trusty knife, and then disappeared into the night, on mission to enact revenge on murders whoever they were or no consideration of what laws needed to be broken.

He tracked the killers in Boston, it turned out to be to eight members of Children of Abraham, now Joseph sets his trap to kill all of the murderers, but will it work and what tragedies will play out on streets of Boston?

This one is mostly all right, I'd just change the killers from being 8 to 1 or 2. With the player apps we're already pushing a high vampiric population on to Boston, even without 8 npcs rolling around.

McGrovester in his dreams:

*Von Limburgh plays ominous and dark music in the background*
*McGrovester is standing behind Adonis in a dark scene*
McGrovester: "There is something I must do, sir."
Adonis: "Hmm?"
McGrovester: "I must declare something."
Adonis: "Sure, sure, just wondering why Frederick's playing that dark music.."
McGrovester: "I am the Chosen Son of Isaac, here to kill the heretic and serve the Lord. I have come to destroy your heresy, for I am the son of Isaac. DEUS VULT!"
Adonis: "Wait what-"
*McGrovester pulls out a flintlock revolver and promptly shoots Adonis in the heart 3 times, along with another 4 times in the head*

Apparently Adonis has some sort of thing that makes him almost impossible to kill, even if I use guns or even entire artillery pieces (artillery also includes catapults and the like) to attack.

I don't think you understand how powerful Adonis is at this point. He has at least 700 years on any other living vampire. By the time you pulled the revolver, he would already be at your neck. Even if you could somehow position artillery to fire on Rome, you would need to either decapitate him or pierce his heart with silver or wood, which is kind of hard to do with siege weapons. And that's assuming you would get that close to him without the dozen or so deathly loyal praetors surrounding him.

Depends on the number of apps. Let's say two for now and if some people don't end up applying we can add on an extra member of the Cabal.

So what if I fired cannons into Rome, would that work? Since technically they are pieces of metal and so would (in theory) work, and possibly behead him through the direct strike. So basically, cannons are my only hope.

If you got lucky enough to score a clean headshot with a cannon, then yes, you could in theory kill him. However that requires a direct hit, when you are shelling an entire city, and hoping that no one fights back. However, considering the RP likely won't go to Rome for a fair while, your chance to do so will have to wait.

I'll fix the thing with Limburgh since that's a big fat contradiction (I was changing it to fix his backstory and ended up messing some parts up), but I don't believe McGrovester is violating the rule of restraint: his sort of 'upper management' if you will are vampires and only the factory workers themselves are humans, which doesn't violate the part which says that vampires keep away from mortals except servants. Also, just a quick note: Limburgh did keep playing, but that was in order to wave off suspicion of anything happening. And McGrovester's business is in fact national, as it's just in the British Empire and nowhere else. I must say, the OC lore for this is amazing. Also, I think you mean the rule of reserve not restraint unless I'm killing other vampires through my business..

Apparently I just learnt that most vampires are homosexuals, as after my character saw a bunch of soldiers enter New Orleans he decided to have sex and then promptly feed on them. Then again, that really isn't a problem considering they don't reproduce like humans.

NS Name: The World Capitalist Confederation
Character Name: Henry McGrovester (Born Isaac Hawthorne)
Appearance: Wears moncoles, and a suit. Generally looks like a regular Victorian capitalist, with nothing much to him that would indicate vamprism apart from his eyes and teeth.
Age (Recommended maximum is around 500 years old. Anyone much older than that wouldn't have reason to leave the continent): 841
Maker (AKA, the vampire who turned you. I recommend you make something of a backstory for them): Jacob McGrovester
City of Origin: (Where they were turned, not where they were born.): Portree

Abilities: Basic: Stealth, Intellect, Advanced: Hypnosis
Religion: Consulis Adonis to vampires, but masquerades as Roman Catholic to mortals. Children of Abraham secretly, and is actually head of the Children of Abraham.
Languages Spoken: Scottish Gaelic (Primary), English (Primary), Latin, French, German and Spanish.

Biography: Born in London, he, as a soldier, was stationed near Portree in order to quell Scottish uprisings. He once took a break in complete darkness, encountering a stranger who had recruited him, saying that God shall bless the descendants of Isaac and all that. So, being a religious man, he accepted the offer and went into the vampire's training. After centuries of hiding and fighting, living a life of martial prowess, in 1690, they went to Glasgow and he gave Henry an education in economics and the operation of business, hoping to make him influential in York or London, perhaps even being appointed as Quaestor. Whilst in the middle of his education though, Jacob McGrovester was shot in the head and executed for suspicion of taking part in the gunpowder plot, which they did, supplying the necessary material and assisting them across the way. After his parents were executed, he went to London and set up McGrovester Corporation, one which operated several factories of several types, grabbing resources from all over the country. As it grew bigger, so did London's GDP and McGrovester's wealth. Many now see him as the hero of London and the bringer of the Industrial Revolution.(Albeit this is false, but hey, ride on a wave good enough and people will think you made it) Meanwhile, he continued to educate himself in business and vampirism, learning to become a master of manipulation and thought, amassing millions of mortal slaves. Despite all of this, he went to America, resigning his post as the Quastor of London in order to pursue further economic gain, planning to expand McGrovester Corporation as he saw all those empty tracts of land....All those slaves to be had. Or that's what he said. He planned to maybe become the Senator of these new lands, and so about a few years ago, he set up a large network of the triangular slave trade, slowly moving his operations to the USA, and to the rest of the Empire. Whilst not nearly as powerful as, say, the East India Company, he was still rich and powerful. In fact, about 50 years ago, he was appointed by the Governor as London's Quaestor, due to his extreme influence over it. Being the most intelligent - and senior - member of the Children of Abraham, he became its leader, amassing power on a large scale, with his title being now known as the "Firstborn of Isaac", and soon, perhaps, he may be able to take down Adonis, or at least be a martyr..there were a lot of those already though.

NS Name: The World Capitalist Confederation
Character Name: Frederick von Limburgh (Born Wilhelm Ingerstadt)
Appearance: Blond hair, green eyes, usually wears very fancy and fashionable clothes.
Age (Recommended maximum is around 500 years old. Anyone much older than that wouldn't have reason to leave the continent): 243
Maker (AKA, the vampire who turned you. I recommend you make something of a backstory for them): Heinrich von Limburgh
City of Origin: Vienna

Abilities: Basic: Intellect, Stealth, Advanced: Hypnosis
Religion: Children of Abraham in secret, ambivalent about religion in public.
Languages Spoken: German (Primary), English, Latin, French and Spanish.

Biography: Born in Vienna to a working class family, he had a talent for music and so chose to train in that, using his music to earn lots of money and earn fame and influence. He performed as an amazing violinist and piano player, composing many pieces himself and making himself well-known as a musician. One night at the opera though, he walked out after his performance and was approached by a dark force, who bit him and recruited him into the Children of Abraham. He told him to then go to America and hunt down Adonis. Without choice, he accepted. He continued playing for a few months, until he faked his own suicide. He then roamed around Vienna for some time, until his dominus told him to go to America and find a leader named "Henry McGrovester". So, in order to escape, he pretended to support liberal forces in the Empire and he was forced to go into exile into Boston, making contact with McGrovester, and soon McGrovester helped train him, taking him under his care as his dominus had died not a year after he left for Boston. His skill in instruments allows him to manipulate people, and his sharp mind allowed him to beat many in games of strategy. After going into Boston, he began to use his talents to live, attempting to stay in the shadows as much as possible.

They have a hand symbol that they use to symbol their position. It's a bit of an open secret, so you better only do it in company you trust.

Just some last note and you'll be good to go. The comparison to the East India Company still bugs me a bit, even a company close to as powerful as the EIC would still be an absolutely massive corporation. By this point the EIC was basically a small country with a private army. Second of all, someone involved in the slave trade would much more likely be based in the south, like in Charleston, or if they were in the north they would be most likely in Providence and not Boston. Make those edits and you should be good. Limburgh is accepted.
