This is an RPG that I've been wanting to start for quite a while now but I haven't had the time. Finally I was able to write it up.
A race known as the Zexrel began searching out strange creatures that appeared to be half human and half animal but their reason is unknown. They are easy to identify because of their white skin and red tattoos covering their face and chest. The Zexrel are as skilled as assassin and it's almost impossible to hide from them for long so once they discovered a village filled with the half-bloods they destroyed everything causing the creatures to flee for their lives. Not many escaped and those who did were forced to seek shelter in a deep dangerous wood known as the Traekleth Forest meaning Dark Void. One of the half creature half humans discovered a large building that was surrounded by plants and trees that it appeared to be almost completely camouflaged. Quickly they began searching the forest for others who had survived to bring them to the fortress. Soon there was a small group of them and there was only one thing on their mind: survive.
Weeks later things became clear that the Zexrel were no longer the issue: the monsters and other danger creatures in the forest posed almost a bigger threat and after living in the forest for almost a month the size of the once large group had grown considerably smaller but still more people showed up from time to time, fleeing from different parts of the country where the Zexrel were still terrorizing. Suddenly the Zexrel seemed to disappear and there were no more news of the strange race but dealing with the beasts and illnesses in the forest soon made them forget about the Zexrel. It has been almost two months since the fortress was discovered and many people have helped to make small schools for the younger children to learn while the older ones are taught fighting and survival skills. Scouting parties are sent out to bring back more survivors but the Zexrel have still not made an appearance. Soon many people began discovering the small beauties in the forest such as secret underground waterfalls that no one had ever discovered and other hidden areas that make one forget that the forest is named Dark Void. Sightings of unicorns have even been reported and people became less afraid but once people got too comfortable a monster would suddenly attack and they would remember that danger still existed.
(I'll probably change this description a bit.)
This is an idea of what the fortress kind of looks like but it'd be even more hidden.
Here's a really rought layout I drew of the inside:
Ok so basically in this RPG you have freedom to make your own story-line (once you discuss it with me of course) and if things start to die down, I'll bring in my own plot. Just about anything can happen in this RPG but please remember that this RPG isn't meant to goof off in; it still must stick to reason but you can still have fun with it just don't go completely crazy.
1. Only control your own character(s) unless you have permission from another person to make their character say/do something.
2. You can't be invincible. (Meaning you can dodge every single attack thrown at you.)
3. Speak in italics when out of character. (Or Parenthesis.)
4. You have to get permission from me to start role playing with your character(s).
5. Must roll-play in third person.
More rules may be added over time if more are needed, but I'll let you know if I do add more.
Ok, now onto the fun part! Characters! As mentioned your characters must be half human half animal and that means they must have some visible animal quality (like bird wings, cat ears, fox tail, etc) but you can't turn into that creature. I'm going to let you have as many characters as you want but you have to be able to handle all of them. Don't make 5 characters and only use 2. I'll let you know if I think you have too many. :)
This is what your profile should look like:
Age: (between 13 to 25)
Species: (You can make up a random species name if you want or just put half-human half-whatever)
Appearance: (Picture please. Ask if you need help finding one and if you can't find one with the animal qualities, that's fine we can use our imagination. I prefer not to have pictures of real people...but if you can't find anything else than I guess that's fine.)
Personality: (How they act basically)
Bio: (A bit about their past.)
Other: (If you need to add something else.)

With her dying breath she told him to run to the forest so Lev did and was discovered by a search party shortly after. They brought him to the fortress and he quickly settlef in.

She was only able to mortally wound one of the Zexrel before she was forced to flee for her life. Ever since that day, she has practiced her skills of fighting and improved considerably while also working on her stealth and tracking abilities.

He's learned from many of his mistakes and has met many of the dangerous creatures in the forest so he knows which one he can't fight alone. He was raised in a forest a long ways away so he feels most at home among the trees. His family was able to flee when the Zexrel raided their forest but they were separated so Thren has no idea where they are or what happened to them. Thren is aware of the fortress but is very hesitant to stay there because of the amount of people and only takes refuge there if he's badly injured or needs a safe place to sleep but he normally is on his own in the forest.

He was dropped in the middle of an opening in the forest and both monsters forgot about him.

She lay unconscious for several hours before Lev found her. She was the last person to be taken into the Fortress before the Zexrel attacks stopped, and has not spoken a word since Lev found her, though she is able to read and write, and her hearing and other senses seem fine.

I added a picture for the RPG.
Time to start!! It's early in the morning fyi.
Temra's eyes snapped open and she carefully stood up, making no sound as she did so. There was a scent in the air that she recognized immediately: a Goylith. They weren't extremely dangerous but still could prove a challenge to deal with. Goyliths would kill anything that moved. A Goylith looked just like a normal seven-foot lizard but with poisonous spit and spikes on it's tail that were also poisoned and could be flung like darts. It's claws were also poisoned and even though they weren't too sharp, the Goylith's speed made up for that. Temra glanced at the small scouting party she was leading and gave a slight signal with her hand for them to be quiet and prepare for battle. The Goylith was still a few hundred yards in front of them so she knew it was possible to wound it if they were able to ambush it. Giving a quick signal to the others, they fanned out moving as silently as they were able to. Soon they came in sight of the Goylith and they held their position waiting for Temra's signal to attack.
Lev sleepily rolled over onto his stomach and opened his eyes. Yawning, he stretched making a small growling sound and then sat up, his tail flicking up behind him. Rubbing his eyes his ears began to twist around picking up the sounds in the fortress. The fortress connected to a large labyrinth of tunnels that disappeared underground but many people weren't allowed to go down there because they hadn't been explored yet. Lev had found a small tunnel that was about six feet about the ground but was only about a twelve foot long tunnel that led to a dead and the ceiling was only six feet high. Being very small and short for his age he was able to fit perfectly in it and it became is secret home that only Iolani knew about. Flexing his hands, his claws extended and then retracted once he relaxed. He feel like getting up though and curled back up into a ball ready to go to back to sleep.
You can decide where your characters are: either with Temra in the forest scouting for new people, or in the fortress probably waking up.
