Forgotten Memories RPG
Here it is! My new RPG! Please read the title series before joining. This RPG may be a bit dark and there will be blood and gore. (Also romance.) If you’ve read the title series though then you should be fine.
(Still editing and fixing this thing up so don’t expect it to be perfect yet :P)
Feel free to make your characters when you’re ready!
This RPG starts ASAP, but my deadline is December 15th
A young man lay sprawled out on the ground. He had soft bright white hair that gently framed his sharp handsome face. He looked about twenty years of age. His eyes were close tight and he squirmed on the ground as if her were having a nightmare. Suddenly his crystal blue eyes flew open and he sat up very suddenly. He moaned slightly from the instant pain he felt. Slowly he reached up and touched his forehead feeling a lump and what he guessed was a dark bruise. “What was I doing?” he muttered. He had no recollection. “Taking a nap?” he wondered slowly standing.
He felt a bit lightheaded but he did a slow three sixty and looked all around. He was on a small grassy mountain overlooking several others in all directions. They were dotted and filled with many trees and some of the even taller ones had snow at the very top.
His brow furrowed. “Where am I?” He wondered. “How did I get here?” His confusion rose as he searched through his mind desperately trying to remember anything. Then he thought of another question that terrified him most above the rest. “…Who am I…?” His memory was like an empty scroll, nothing written in it at all. He knew basic things and such but any and all of his past was completely gone.
Shaking from the shock he collapsed back down and held his head desperately trying to think of absolutely anything.
“You awake?” A young voice greeted him. The young man looked up to see a little boy sitting on the edge of the mountain, his legs hanging off the edge. For some reason the young man must have missed him. He didn’t notice him before… The boy had longish grey hair and looked around ten or eleven years of age. He looked back at the young man with blood red eyes etched with black and evil.
The young man shivered sensing such darkness from the kid, but he tried to ignore it. “Y-yeah” He said.
The boy smiled brightly washing away all uncertainty the memoryless young man felt. “I’m glad!” He said. “I’m Raxil” He introduced himself.
Slowly the young man crawled over to the boy and sat on his knees beside him. “I-I think I hit my head” He said. “I can’t remember anything.”
Raxil looked concerned. “Oh dear… You did hit your head. Well, that thing threw a rock at you” He said pointing.
The young man turned around to see a small creature that looked partially like a fuzzy bat crossed with a monkey. It was going through a small pack and eating ravenously.
“Also, I think that’s yours.” Raxil said.
Quickly the young man got to his feet and leapt at the creature. He was desperate to find anything about himself and a surge of hope rushed through him at the sight of the pack. There was a chance he had some sort of ID on him. The creature squawked in fear and grabbed the bag lifting off as fast as he could. Just missing the white haired teen nearly went tumbling down the cliff and muttered angrily under his breath.
Raxil sighed. “Aw… that’s too bad. It’s gone”
The young man buried his face in his hands. “Shoot! I can’t remember anything and I just lost my only chance of recovering my memory!”
Raxil sighed getting to his feet. “Perhaps” he said softly. “I only saw you get hurt and came to check on you.” He said.
The young man ran a hand through his hair and took a deep breath. “Do you know anything about me at all?” He asked.
Raxil tapped his chin thoughtfully. “I would think that you’re my side of the old war” He said.
The young man cocked his head. “War?”
Raxil nodded. “The entire world was split in war against the Peacekeeper” he explained. “He’s evil as evil can get. Killed thousands and even murdered my father”
The young man’s eyes widened. “Really? That’s awful!”
Raxil closed his eyes looking pained by the memories. “I want to kill that man, but I’m far too young and weak to do anything”
The young man looked thoughtful. “I need to find out who I am… but while I’m searching perhaps I can help you. I don’t know if I’m strong or anything, but if I get the chance to kill him for you I will” He promised.
A smirk flashed on Raxil’s face, but it quickly changed to a happy smile. “You would? Oh thank you!” He said.
The young man rubbed the back of his neck. “Could I follow you?” He asked.
Raxil shook his head. “I need to go on my journey alone. You can go that way to find your way out of the mountains though” He said pointing towards the snowiest and coldest of the mountains.
The young man sighed and looked at the ground. “I don’t even know what to call myself…” he muttered.
Raxil smiled kindly picking up his own pack and slinging it over his shoulder. “I would have called you Snow” He said.
The young man shrugged. “That’ll work” He said touching a strand of his white hair.
Raxil waved. “Bye then Snow. Perhaps we will meet again one day” He said.
The newly name Snow watched Raxil disappear into the treeline before he made his way down the mountain and in the direction Raxil had pointed him in. He was sure he’d find some clue of who he was if he searched.
He trekked through the mountains for hours stumbling along and thinking the entire time. He was about halfway to the mountains when he got into a very dense part and had to push himself hard to get through the thick brush. Suddenly he burst through into an opening and fell face first into the ground. Moaning he lifted his head to find three sharp blades pointed at his neck. Not good.
“Who goes there?” A gruff voice asked behind a mask of a cheetah.
Snow’s mouth went dry unsure of what to say. He looked around and figured he was in a village of some sort.
“I think he’s a spy” One of the warriors said, he wore a mask of a wolf
A girl pushed her way in “Let me see” She said with an annoyed sigh. Her mask was of a dragon. She scanned him over carefully. “Doesn’t look evil to me” She said.
The warrior in the wolf’s mask elbowed her. “You just like guys with blue eyes”
If her face wasn’t covered by her mask you would have seen how red it went. “S-shut up” She told him.
The cheetah masked warrior roughly yanked Snow up by his hair. “We should just kill him” He hissed. “He’s seen the village”
Color drained from Snow’s face and he shook his head violently. “I-I promise not to tell anyone!” He piped up.
The warrior wearing the wolf mask began laughing. “This shrimp is terrified! He’s hardly a threat”
For some reason this hit Snow deep and he glared at the wolf warrior dangerously. He got to his feet properly taking the cheetah warriors hand out of his hair. “I’m not scared” He snarled.
The girl suddenly stepped between them. “Stop!” She ordered. “We’ll let the chief decide this”
The warriors pointed their weapons at Snow and he had no choice but to be lead into the midst of the bustling village.
Your part of this tribe! You have certain jobs in the village and have grown up there all your lives. You’re not savages, but not civilised either. Anything about the kingdom you’ve heard is strictly rumors and none of you would have ever seen it in your lives. However, mind crushers are regular. Many of you will have scuffled with a few of them and protected your land viciously. Some even believe there is a large amount of them living nearby. Nonetheless you crave to learn about what’s outside the mountains though. Snow’s arrival could very well be your ticket out.
Name: (No last names.)
Age: (Don’t really have a limit, but I would suggest in the teen years)
Gender: (Male or Female)
Description: (pic is best please. I can help you find one if needed)
Power: (Read below for instructions)
Tribal duties: (Also below for instructions)
Bio/Personality: (Keep this mostly toward bio because your characters personality is something that will come out over time. The bio can be about their past or an important something about them)
Other: (Anything extra you wanted to add)
How to pick your power:
Ok so you can’t be all powerful and have more than one power
Here are some ideas for powers. (If you don’t understand what the power is tell me and I'll explain)
Force field power (I can’t think up a good name)
Other: (Feel free to make one up! I could really use some ideas for new powers. WARNING: I’m super picky :P)
What you can’t be
Looker: (Can see anywhere in any world at this time. Can occasionally see the past and future)(One of my characters is a Looker and I won’t allow any more)
Tarnis: (Wisest beings in the world. They never forget anything and love learning. You can’t be one of these because their very rare and as soon as one is born it is named king/queen of the land.)
Nothing weird: (Zombie, Vampire, fairy, werewolf, ect.)
(I’m just going to guess that all of you are going to be Warriors or Hunters though. :P)
Stuff you should know.
1. Write as sort of a narrator. You know your characters thoughts, feelings and everything, but your not actually your character.
Example of what I want: Snow looked far off. "I wonder whats going to happen to me...?" He wondered. Example of what I don't want: I looked far off. "I wonder whats going to happen to me...?" I wondered.
Though this looks nice in a book, its difficult in an RPG because it takes people longer to figure out who is who.
2. Proper grammar, punctuation and use of spell check is greatly appreciated. Making your posts clear will be a big help to everyone.
3. When your character is talking use. "These" so we know. Also its nice to italicise it for when they're thinking. Example "Where am I?" She thought.
4. I find single sentenced posts annoying (I know I know. I do em too. :P) If its in a conversation thats ok, but try to make them just a bit longer (><)
5. Errrrmmm I think thats it, but I might put up more rules if your misbehaving.

Since the attack he took up farming, hoping to do something useful for his tribe, though it was still very difficult. He was able to use his power to make the plants grow quickly for a short time, but they would rarely last and would die quickly.

Nathan: ... give her a moment...
Me: Sorry! I was going to use that exact pic for the RPG if you guys picked D! (isn't it an awesome one?)
Ok! Looks good, very good. Only thing I wanted to add (and should have mentioned earlier) Is one of the main characters I'm adding in will have the power of fire as well. You can keep it so long as you don't mind that they're matching. ( I have no problem with it)
(How did you post a picture???)
Ok! Nother profile done and it hasn't even been a full day!
Wow... sounds kinda intense. :P
aka: I'd never figure it out.
how can you pictures on the iPod????
i was just wondering, but do the tribe's people's masks have to be based on animals?
Mostly, yes, sometimes of monsters or mystical creatures. They use them to intimidate people and keep their identity's secret. (They used to believe that a mind crusher could only crush your mind if he knew your name) Only warriors, hunter, scouts and that type really wear them though for tradition sake.
Make that a note to all you people: Think up mask idea for your character! (if your a warrior, hunter or scout... or bored. :P)
Lion mask is for the leader and chief.
