Nameless Prestige: To the Nth Degree



There once was a world by the name of Caria, a world that was full of fantastic life, fantastic locations and fantastic stories. In this world, many continents, full of diverse life and diverse histories can be found. Every continent is unique in their own way, from the flora and fauna to the races and cultures that call specific continent homes. Anoris is the name of one of the continents of Caria, known for its abundance of life, moderate climate, and being the home of the Humans of Caria.

The history of Anoris, is long and storied, as it begins long before the arrival of man to the continent. The continent was originally home to the Elves, with the humans migrating to the continent after a series of disasters. Upon arriving on Anoris, the Elves originally welcomed them and taught them how to survive. However, soon the biological differences between Elves and Humans became obvious, leading to a wave of fear and paranoia surging through the Elven population. This fear and paranoia lead them to striking the peaceful human settlements, killing those who fought back, and enslaving those who survived. Thus began the age of humanity in chains. The anger and hatred of the humans towards Elves was cultivated during this time, along with the desire for freedom from their tyrannical overlords.

This buildup led to a rebellion that would free the humans, and lead to the pushing of Elves from Anoris and the establishment of the Empire of Akias. The 2000 years of the Empire of Akias are known as the Golden Age of Humanity. However, these great times would never last forever, and the Empire of Akias collapsed due to an unknown reason. Advancements in both technology and magic were lost after the fall. Time would pass, but the level of advancement experienced during the Empire of Akias would not be met, even 2000 years after the fall.

It is then, in 2000 AFA that our tale takes place. The Anoris of 2000 AFA is a divided continent with 11 nations that rarely agree on anything. In fact, three of these 11 nations have just recently made peace after a long period of war. Beyond these nations, seven cultural/racial groups of humans exist along with seven major religions. There are also numerous settlements, and numerous different organizations throughout Anoris, especially mercenary groups.

One of these many mercenary groups, specifically the most powerful, respected, feared and prestigious mercenary group, the Nameless Prestige. But do not let the reputation fool you into thinking it is a large or normal sized group. No, the Nameless Prestige is relatively tiny, maxing out at 21 members, and keeps this size fairly constantly, as when a member retires or dies, the Nameless Prestige will seek a replacement from a pool of possibilities. Its notoriety comes from the fact that every member of the Nameless Prestige is among the greatest warriors with spell or blade or both in Anoris, along with the ability of their members to work well as a team.

Not many can pinpoint the exact date of its founding as it is not exactly known, as it really doesn’t matter to the 21 members of the Nameless Prestige, or those seeking to hire them. Due to the skills of the members of the Nameless Prestige, along with other factors, the Nameless Prestige never accepts jobs that would involve them getting involved in the conflict between nations. Instead, generally taking jobs that involve dealing with bandits, criminal organizations, monsters and other general threats to everyone.

Anyways, this is a tale of a certain job that the Nameless Prestige took, for the better of Anoris. In Primo Seminis of 2000 AFA, the Grand Prince of the Grand Principality of Asnana discovered that a powerful artifact, known as Nth Order, had disappeared. The existence of Nth Order was a well kept secret as if the news of its existence was common knowledge, then a devastating war over it would have descended upon the people of Anoris. So, it goes without saying why the Grand Prince wanted it found, and why he couldn’t trust anyone but the best to not only find it, but do it with discretion. And so, he hired the Nameless Prestige, and provided them with the information they would need to track it down.

This is the tale of how the Nameless Prestige found Nth Order, and the events associated with it.




After a rather lengthy break, and a 90 plus day period of worldbuilding, I have returned with a new RP. This is Nameless Prestige: To the Nth Degree, a fantasy RP taking place on the continent of Anoris in the world of Caria. This RP will not so much be focused on the plot as much as it will be focused on just having a good time with your characters. Basically, this is all about just having fun.

Now then, let us get to the lore I have built for this world. Please direct your attention to Fables of Caria: Lore Archive for the vast majority of the lore. Note, not all of it will be necessary to know (because, let's be honest, there is a lot there), but please read through it when making a character, as you may find answers to your questions within it. If you can’t find answers, ask, and if it isn’t there, I’ll answer you. If it is in the lore, then I will point out where it is.

Now with that done, I ask that you direct your attention to the rules…

The Rules

1. NO Godmodding, and stuff like that
2. My word is law, and when I am not online, my Co-OP's word is law.
3. I understand this RP is focused on powerful characters, but try not to be too OP. If something is too OP, I will let you know and provide possible nerfs. Also, anything involving the manipulation of time or negating magic is off limits.
4. Be a voice of reason, not a control freak. Control freaks will be banished in the blink of an eye.
5. Keep the drama to a minimum, no one comes here looking for drama, we just want to have a good time. As such all disputes between people will be kept out of the OOC and Discord Server, settle them via TG or DMs.
6. Inform everyone if you are to be absent for an extended period of time through the OOC or the Discord Server
7. Read through the lore. I do not repeating information that is already present in the lore for the purpose of character creation.
8. Three Strikes and you're out, unless you really mess up.
9. Finally, these last three words make up this final rule… Fun. Is. Mandatory.

And now, for the moment you have all been waiting for, the App itself. Also, keep in mind that there is only room for 20 characters, so keep it to one character to start with.

Looks like I've got reading to do. From my skimming, it looks like this is one of the options where I can have the sentient armor, so I'll probably go that way. Unless I think of a cooler concept down the line.

Nameless Prestige Member Record
Name: Jack/Chastity/Steinar Dredd
Age: 26
Sex: Male
Sexual Orientation: Asexual
Bio: Steinar Dredd was above all, an idiot. A berberan born in Atral, at the age of 9 he was left roughly enough to buy himself dinner by a drunkard father and... unpleasant, mother. He quickly took to stealing to survive, due to his penchant for avoiding hard work. This kept up for 5 years, till he stumbled into an underground pit fighting ring; highly illegal and highly dangerous, he was drawn to it like a fly to honey. Too young to fight, he started off as a messenger between bookies of the sordid affair. For 3 years he supported himself like this, along with a new habit of violent mugging along with pickpocketing. Then he was old enough to fight.

His first appearances were characterized by him getting his ass handed to him 9 ways to sunday, but he quickly learned the ropes. Fighting almost seemed natural to him. He chose first a simple sword and shield as his weapons of choice, but took his trident as a trophy from a particularly tough opponent. After a year of fighting, he was a proverbial king of the ring, not unmatched in combat but nearing it. He kept up his career of pitfighting, often handicapping himself just to keep it interesting, it came to an end after 4 years. A particularly tricksy fighter came into the ring with an all new trick; magic. His first move was to hit Steinar with a spell that left him fragmented. He found himself suddenly barely able to dodge his physically unimpressive opponent's blows. He was humiliated, and his many rivals ran him out of the ring, at which point he spent two years living off his savings and exploring himself. Whereas before he had been just Steinar, now he felt more... complete. More split, yet more together. Two voices in his head rose above what had become a din of screams, and introduced themselves as Jack and Chastity. Steinar spent nearly a week in a coma when he retreated into his own head to learn what had become of him.

The spell, it turned out, had split his mind into fragments like a shattered mirror. Within himself, every aspect of his personality was given a voice, and a loud one at that, but the three that were the strongest, that rose above the rest, were Steinar, his warrior's determination, Jack, his skill for figuring out an opponent and an arena, and Chastity, his loud, swaggering, bravado laden side. And as it turned out, his other aspects didn't like being split apart any more than Steinar did. They made an agreement; they'd take turns holding the reins whenever the others deemed appropriate. And so they set off on a quest to put themselves back together. As of yet, they've had almost 0 luck, but that can't last forever. And with Steinar's reputation as a lethal and almost unmatched combatant, he found himself invited to the Nameless Prestige, and the rest, they say, is history.

Nameless Prestige Member Record
Name: Anaxes
Age: 56
Sex: Male
Sexual Orientation: Hetrosexual
Bio: Anaxes does not have a surname; he is known as Anaxes the Wanderer, Anaxes the Archer, Anaxes the Undying and countless other names. He was born to a group of nomads in the Emirate of Owhijan, regarded even among their own people as a distinctly odd people with their own strange, savage traditions. AAnaxes learned survival as soon as he could walk, archery from as soon as he was strong enough to draw a bow, and at the age of 16, spent a year delicately carving a magic circle into his skin as was their tradition.

Eventually, however, Anaxes left. He can't name why, but one day he simply took a horse and his stuff, left a note, and rode off into the night. And so Anaxes wandered, and kept wandering to this very day. He never kept a map of his wanderings, but he is fairly sure he's been everywhere. Of course, a wanderer has to eat, and so he hunted for his food, camping in the wilderness, performing various tasks for money to buy food or lodgings whenever he came across a village, town or city that would let him in.

It was relatively mundane stuff, but a decade of wandering and the constant testing of his own skills made him into a hardened veteran, a crack archer and an experienced survivalist. On his wanderings, he began to offer out his services as an acquirer of exotic magical components, hunting down beasts for their parts for use in magic. Of course, it takes a certain caliber of person to hunt magical beasts for a living, and another entirely to last for a long time in that line of work, and word of him and his exploits would eventually reach the Nameless Prestige, who invited him to join.

He accepted, figuring that he could just keep doing what he was doing, and so he did. He became an occasional sight alongside other members of the Nameless Prestige in battle in between his own hunts, when he could be seen, but his old age has made him gradually cease his own ventures, preferring to remain at the Nameless Prestige's headquarters until dispatched. Regardless, Anaxes is one of the best archers in the Nameless Prestige, if not the best on the continent, and he intends to remain a member until death takes him for good.
Appearance:
Image



Magic Technique: Mage
Magic:
  • Find: Through manipulation of Bywyd, Ynni and Synhwyrau, Anaxes sends out a wave of energy that alerts him to all life within a 100 meter radius.
  • Surface: Through manipulation of Dwr and Cynnig, Anaxes brute-forces himself to the edge of a body of water.
  • Hide: Through manipulation of Oleuni, Bywyd and Synhwyrau, Anaxes becomes perfectly invisible, and all but impossible to detect through magical means as long as he remains still. Movement makes Hide less effective, the greater and more rapid the movement the less effective.
  • Heal: Through manipulation of Iachad and Bywyd, Anaxes brute-forces wounds closed. This is not proper healing, and is more of a band-aid until other healing can be done.
  • Acceleration: Through manipulation of Cynnig and Awyr, Anaxes channels his magic into accelerating an arrow to absurd speeds.
  • Sustain: Through manipulation of Iachad and Bywyd, Anaxes magically animates his body to move, regardless of what physical wounds he has taken at the time to keep fighting. This spell must be continually channeled through his circle, so its use prevents the use of other magic.
    More will appear.
Skills: Anaxes is an old warrior, one who has traveled the length and breadth of Anoris. He claims to have killed one of pretty much everything left alive; while probably false, Anaxes is, nonetheless, very skilled with his weapon of choice, the longbow, numbering one of the greatest archers and hunters to walk the continent today. He is a skilled tracker of beasts, and very knowledgeable on their preferred habits and environments and how to kill them. He speaks a smattering of most languages, able to get by if nothing else. He knows how to sail a ship and to navigate by the stars, is a skilled horse rider and can survive in all but the most barren of natural environments.
Equipment:
Longbow and 50 arrows
Quiver
Arrow Bag
Plate Armour
Dagger
Shortsword
Pack
Blanket


RP Sample: I hope you remember me.
Did you read the Rules? There's nothing sneaky hiding in there.



Optional Stuff:
Personality: Anaxes is a rather quiet and tired-looking old man, with a wary, almost suspicious look in his eyes. But despite the look in his eyes, his body is always relaxed, even in the most heated situations no matter what his facial expressions or eyes might indicate; if he's ever actually tense, it means something is seriously wrong. Nonchalant, soft-spoken contemplative and prone to bouts of philosophy.
Religion: Anaxes is a worshiper of Kosha.
Other Associations beyond the Nameless Prestige: TBD


Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Theme Song: Here..

App is still a WIP, but here it is so far.
Nameless Prestige Member Record
Name: Rhomm "Soultearer"
Age: 27
Sex: Male
Sexual Orientation: Straight
Bio: (Have Fun)
Appearance: 5'11", 150 lbs
Image



Magic Technique: Witch
Magic:
- Soul Tearing - Enaid (Soul), Gwrthdaro (Conflict) and Cynnig (Motion). The manipulation of souls is incredibly powerful, allowing a great many possibilities. However, a soul must be freely available if it is to be altered in any form, at least for a witch of Rhomm's power. In order to use any of his other soulspells, Rhomm must first tear the target's soul away from them. This process requires time relative to the soul's power in addition to uninterrupted concentration. Furthermore, souls can naturally resist being torn away from their bodies, and in truly disastrous cases, can pull back with enough strength to tear away Rhomm's soul. A soul successfully torn away will slowly decay unless it is allowed to return to its body, at which point it will begin a slow process of recovery. Any soul that has been torn before becomes exponentially more resilient to further attempts.
- Soul Shredding - Enaid (Soul), Gwrthdaro (Conflict), and Dranc (Death). Shredding a soul is a complicated business, though there is perhaps no more complete form of death. Shredding a soul does not simply require immense concentration and a significant amount of time dependent on the power of the soul in question, it also requires the soul to be freely accessed. Therefore, shredding a soul can typically only be attempted on an individual if their soul has already been torn away.
- Soul Fusion - Enaid (Soul), Creu (Creation) and Cynnig (Motion). Fusing souls is unpredictable at best. It could result in anything from a decaying soul being restored to a soul being effectively overcharged or even the creation of a single new soul, or potentially even stranger things. While the caster can try to trigger any of these effects, the results are incredibly difficult to predict. As such, soul fusion is best avoided, and really only a last resort unless it is being performed for (deeply unethical) research purposes. Naturally, it also requires both souls to be freely available, meaning that they must have already been torn away.
- Soul Transfer - Enaid(Soul), Cynnig (Motion) and Chyfnewid (Exchange). The transfer of souls is by far the most complex of the various soulspells Rhomm can perform. It requires an exchange, necessitating that a second soul be provided so that the first can enter its new container. Furthermore, it is the only one of his spells that require a willing soul, rather than simply requiring that it be freely available. Even if the soul is willing to enter a new container, the spell still requires a long and complex ritual that takes many hours in the case of a healthy soul, or several days if not weeks if the soul in question is decaying from having been torn for too long. Finally, even assuming that all of this is accomplished, there is still a chance that the soul could reject its new container in an extremely dangerous reaction, potentially tearing or even shredding the caster's soul.
- Curse Empowerment - Llygredd (Corruption), Hud (Magic Energy), and Gwenwyn (Poison). Empowering a curse increases the power of both positive and negative aspects of a curse. For example, a person cursed to transform into a powerful beast without any control over it would be a far more powerful beast, but have more difficulty regaining control. The effect is temporary, and the duration and power of the effect depends on the caster's familiarity with the specific curse being targeted.
- Curse Weakening - Llygredd (Corruption), Hud (Magic Energy), and Iachad (Healing). Weakening a curse reduces the power of both positive and negative aspects of a curse. For example, a person cursed to transform into a powerful beast without any control over it would be a far weaker beast, but more easily regain control. The effect is temporary, and the duration and power of the effect depends on the caster's familiarity with the specific curse being targeted. This effect cannot "cure" or otherwise remove curses.
Skills:
-Expert on the subject of souls and the magic that affects them
-Well read on the subject of curses and the magic that affects them
Equipment:
-Hooded robes that were finely tailored once, but are faded and frayed, becoming increasingly tattered with the years.
-Staff of dark stained oak, bound in black iron
-Huge leatherbound tome, with black iron accents and clasps (his grimoire's typical appearance)
-An old wedding band, worn on a simple string around the neck along with the key to his book, tucked under his clothing
-A pouch under his outer robe containing basic supplies including a waterskin, food, a tinderbox and writing supplies
-A dagger and a hand crossbow (5 bolts), concealed under the robes


RP Sample: You know me, but in case you forgot...
Unconsciously, Walker touches his right arm, brushing his fingers down the metal where once his arm was tattooed with his heathen god.
Fire. The word was once his power, his strength and his defence against the terrors of the night...
Control. Never his strong suit...
Balance. A small smile crept across his lips as he thought of the one he most cared for...
Blood. Walker had spent his life bleeding for causes, for gods. Now he bled only for one person, and yet he wouldn't change that...
Fury. Not much needed to be said there...
Walker stepped up to one pillar. His one remaining arm trembling, he raised his unnaturally steady right hand and touched the metallic fingers to the text, barely feeling the stone through the cold steel.
"Fire," whispered the Goliath in a voice much too small for his terrifyingly powerful frame.

Did you read the Rules? There were rules?



Optional Stuff:
Personality: Reserved except with close friends, quiet, fiercely protective of those he loves. Quiet confidence masks an intense fear of the power he wields...
Religion: Tarity, particularly invokes the New God Ymir
Other Associations beyond the Nameless Prestige: N/A


Alignment: N

I got a character in the works, but I dunno whether to make her a wizard or an alchemist...I think a wizard may be a little bit more useful in this setting, but I've also been interested in alchemy lately.

Not really. The only real difference between the two is how they use magic (and the coresponding pros and cons)

Nameless Prestige Member Record
Name: Lindiwe Diallo
Age: 24
Sex: Female
Sexual Orientation: Considers herself 95 percent straight but is open to trying anything once.
Bio: Born in the Sultanate to a high ranking Knight of the Wasam Almjd Algharbii and an army healer, Lindi grew up in the capital city and had a pretty uneventful childhood. She would watch her mother work and even sometimes assist her, and her father often brought her rare books from his campaigns with the Order to satisfy his bookish and knowledge hungry daughter's curiosity. Helping her mother prepare medicines and potions during her work sparked the young girl's interest in wizardry, because if such amazing things can be accomplished with ordinary herbs, imagine what you can do with magic and the right spells? She took every opportunity when her father would bring her to the Sultan's palace to go into the palace library and study as much magic as she could. Training under the court mage as an apprentice for a while, she eventually got into the academy of Irnthalas after a lot of hard work at the age of sixteen.

Lindi wasn't a prodigy, but she did work her butt off and graduate with a high percentage three years ago...enough to get her a good job possibly with a royal family. Of course, that doesn't mean her life was all work and no play however...during her education she made plans about where she would go, the places she would visit and after she graduated she was able to both travel and experiment with magic much more freely. Got into a lot of wild shit too, developed a reputation as a bit of a party animal, collected quite a few boyfriends, etc. She lived in Kascain for a little while and got a position as a researcher for a minor noble family (having an affair with the eldest son of that family during that time) and collecting artifacts. After their breakup (which was pretty amicable, they're still cool and write to each other sometimes), she quit that job, continued her travels which eventually led her to the Nameless Prestige last year. Never having tried adventuring before, Lindi thought that it could be a nice gig and learning experience so she determined to find a way to be accepted in.
They'd heard of her, but of course they decided that she'd need to be tested in order to show off her skills so they gave her a set of trials thinking that she couldn't possibly pass, as the outgoing young woman doesn't seem much like the type to take things seriously. But she did pass by applying the same focus as she did to her spells and once she was accepted in, she actually began to settle down a bit (but only a bit) and focused more on her adventures, squeezing in a bit of fun along the way.
Appearance:She's very short, standing only 4'11 with a feminine slender build. She has a teleportation rune inked into her skin on her right wrist so that she may teleport conveniently.
Image
(She usually dresses in a knee length red coat with a lavender under-robe kept short for travel...there is an arcane symbol for Hud on the back of the coat, it doesn't serve any purpose other than decoration.



Magic Technique: Wizard
Magic:
Exploding Circle: Combines Tan, Thrap and Ynni, four runes are drawn in the four cardinal directions with the caster's wand and once the target steps in, it forms a circle that detonates in a three foot diameter around the enemy.
Chilling Cloud: Combines Awyr with Llysnafedd and Dwr, a bone-chilling fog that sticks to whatever it touches is released from her wand upon the spell being said. The longer it sticks, the colder the object or person it sticks to becomes...it can even cause frostbite if left on long enough.
Dragon's Breath: Combines Tan and Awyr, basically your standard fireballs. Three fireballs each with a half-foot diameter shoot rapid fire from her wand in quick succession.
Arcane Cube: Combines Amddiffyn and Hud, a seven foot by seven foot magic cube surrounds the caster and their allies and deflects oncoming damage, although it can be broken if damaged enough or if focus is lost. Can only be held for thirty minutes at a time.
Teleportation: This spell combines Teithio and Ynni. This is activated by touching the rune with her wand, enabling her to teleport short distances about six feet at a time. She can’t use it more than five times a day, never one after the other or try to teleport too far...otherwise it takes a toll.
Summoning: Combining Gabis, Teithio and Bwystfilod, this spell allows one to summon small magical creatures to aid one in battle. Nothing more powerful than oneself can be summoned (meaning you have to summon something that matches your power/skill level in combat or lower, so she will not be summoning gigantic dragons), no more than one summon can be summoned at a time and they can only remain for an hour. Say if one was a novice spellcaster whose power level would be just slightly above the average human...you couldn’t summon anything stronger than that, maybe an adolescent giant at the most. Anything that can inflict more destruction than you could yourself is unable to be summoned by you.
Sludge: Combining Llysnafedd, Daer and Dwr, this spell can turn a three foot wide area of earth into quicksand for half an hour.
Healing:Combining Iachad and Cnawd, this spell heals minor wounds in a pinch. It can't heal huge or fatal injuries, but it can keep you from bleeding out or having a cut get infected.

Skills: Lindi is a quick thinker and is able to recall almost anything she’s seen or read from memory. Her specialty is runes, drawing them quickly with her wand to activate spells and being able to combine different runes for spell experimentation.
Equipment: Her wand, of course, which she usually wears in her hair to hold it back. Several spellbooks, pens and inks, a few potions (healing, invisibility and hair dye) and some rations kept in a rune-laden bag.


RP Sample: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=472284#p36233368 (this is an RP I started, but never got off the ground.)
Did you read the Rules? Yes




Optional Stuff:
Personality: She's pretty bubbly, not afraid to walk up and introduce herself to anybody. She can be very hyperfocused on her interests, talking one's ear off about her favorite topic of the month for hours on end if you'd let her. Preferring to stay neutral in most conflicts, nevertheless she's very loyal to her chosen ones and will defend them to her last. Lindi has a thirst for knowledge and power, wanting to become the most powerful wizard alive and hoping to maybe get her hands on the Staff of Bones or the Staff of Monsters (although she knows the possibility is remote) as well as being a real "ends justify the means" person most of the time.
Religion: Arihasha
Other Associations beyond the Nameless Prestige: None


Alignment: Chaotic good
