THE ADVENTURING GUILD OF FAIR RIVER.
Welcome~ Wondering what this is? The Adventuring Guild of Fair-River is a COMMUNITY ROLE PLAY that is always active on IRC, allowing you to play whenever you feel like. It has been going on for over two years now, and is looking for new blood to keep things interesting. This being a furry site it seemed sort obvious we'd find a few people interested in pretending they're animal people a few times a week. So here we are. While we -do- use an actual dice system for adventures it is a relatively simple one, designed to be newbie friendly.
The basic premise is simple: all players are part of an adventuring guild in a fantasy medieval world, located in the city of Fair-River a trading town in the very middle of the nation. With your warriors, wizards, rogues, monsters, dragons, bandits, undead, and what have you. With the players being heroic anthropomorphic heroes, all be it limited to certain animals. These heroes, as adventures, take jobs for the guild in the form of quests run by other players. The role play itself takes place in three Major Channels.
All of these Channels are on the RIZON IRC server. ( irc.rizon.net ) If you're unfamiliar with IRC you can simply connect with the easy to use Mibbit client. Simply select' Rizon' from the drop-down menu for servers, put any nickname you want in the 'Nick' box, and #bcbgamesOOC in the channel box. We can help you from there.
The FREEFORM located in #BCBGAMESHere players can log in at any time and simply role play their characters interacting in the Guild hall. Gossiping, having a drink, sparring, Romancing, interacting with other players who are online at the time. Forming friendships, lover triangles, and gaining enemies among the other players. The â€˜between questsâ€™ sort of thing where thereâ€™s no story or plot: Just the characters hanging out. A good place to practice, and get used to the nature of things. From time to time you can expect some -very- poorly written drama in here but I think most people here ENJOY that sort of thing . Itâ€™s typically active everyday 6pm EST or later, but is often active other times as well! You do NOT need to take part in the Freeform to take part in the QUESTS. Nor do you need to take part in QUESTS to be part of the freeform if you're not into that sort of thing.
The QUESTS which are ran in #BCBGAMES2Now an adventuring guild wouldn't be an adventuring guild if our heroes didn't get Quests now would it? Rather then having one set â€˜Game masterâ€™ anyone with an idea for a quest can run one any time they wish. Simply announcing their intent to run, with the players presently online volunteering. *Once the group is ready to go, the quest begins typically lasting 4-6 hours and can vary greatly in style and subject. Fighting off undead in an ancient castle, protecting a caravan from bandits, solving a mystery, or tracking a wanted criminal down. Typically someone decides to run a quest every 3-4 days or so, but given the 'when you feel like' nature of the game this varies a lot, and should become more common as we get more players
The â€˜out of characterâ€™ room where people playing the game can simply talk as themselves. Discussing possible plot points for the future, just reacting to whatâ€™s going on IC, Bug people about killing zombies on steam, and just.. Idly talking about whatever they wish. Typically when someone wants to run a QUEST they will post an announcement there to see whoâ€™s awake! If you want to take part in quests you should lurk in this channel whenever youâ€™re online.
Last but not least there is the all important #BCBGAMESOOC
Come my friends, let me tell you a story... Yes, yes, sit around, in a circle now. Haggle's! Stop running about like a miscreant and sit down! Okay, do we all have a drink? Alright you loafs, how about some food so I'm not interrupted by your growling stomachs!
Ok, now that we're all settled down, we can begin.
It was many years ago when the first bomb dropped, it came down whistling, sirens roared across the city as the screams of humans could be heard, and the sound of thundering footsteps overtook the wailing alarms. Many sought shelter, in burrows built deep beneath the ground, but these bombs they dropped, they were too devastating. The city was decimated, the fallout that engulfed it rendered it uninhabitable by any form of life. Many of our elders thought that such devastation would bring a stop to the humans trivial wars, but they were wrong.
With force, humans from every side began to attack each other. The sky was filled with metal objects that fell towards the ground with hastening speed. Again and again the civilians sought refuge, trying to find anywhere they could that would keep them safe. Again, and again, they did not find a place that would keep them from death's icy grip, and he embraced them within his arms. The world was in chaos, the humans were chaos, and we, we animals, thrived.
We don't know why, or how, we managed to survive. Hell, I can't even tell you why we became bipeds as we are today. Some of our greater minds believe that our bodies adapted quicker to the world around us, due to the radiation speeding evolution along. Others believed that somehow the human DNA was transmitted to the young within the wombs by means of the chemicals and strange happenings from the blasts. As to what I believe, I do not know, what I do know is that we are as we are. We stand on our hind paws, and have grown what appear to be half hands, half paws. Our sensory receptors have dulled, and we are not as strong as we were when we were feral. However, we are more cunning than we used to be, as if freed to think so that we may survive in the harshest of these wastelands...
What of the feral though? Why do they still remain feral? Once again, we do not know for certain, though rumors have spread that their DNA holds some form of antibodies that has managed to fight off the evolution to some extent. They are by all means smarter now, and many of them are free thinkers, no longer bound by natures rules or held to a path set out for them. Be wary though, as some are still wild at heart, and the radiation has made them stronger than they were before.
Yet, do not be disheartened friends, make a toast that we are alive and thriving even when the humans lay dead. Many of our scouts have made sure that the bodies of the humans were removed from our beloved city. We have safe-guarded ourselves with defenses against the feral who are still held to the old ways and because of that are now dangerous to our ways of living. We, those that the humans deemed less than them, we, the ones who were not given a second thought upon our passing, we, have survived.
This is our land, Eden, we call it. Yes, it has it's dangers, but it was the last city to be destroyed, and as time has passed we have adapted to the fallout. We are safer here than anywhere else in this world. Find peace in this, as long as you are here, you will have a chance at life.
