Dragon Gateway

Post by Guest on 29th April 2013, 12:33 am

Background
City of Shadowmount is built into White Ash Mountain. There are only a couple entrances near the top of the mountain and the only way in is by dragon. There is a large main entrance in a cave near the top and another above it going straight into the dragon aviary. The mountain is bordered on one side by the Dragonfire River and the village of Springfall lies at the base of the mountain and along the bank of the river. All guests must announce themselves at Springfall before either being brought up by dragon or allowed to enter (if they have their own dragon).

White Ash Mountain is surrounded on all other sides by smaller peaks, each with defense towers and signals. There are other villages within the mountains and farmland on the other side of the peaks where Shadowmount gets most of its food supplies.

Shadowmount itself is carved into the interior of White Ash Mountain. The highest peak has the dragon nursery where dragon eggs are laid and hatched. The next level down is where the dragon aviary is. The next level down is the arena where bondings and city meetings take place. The next level down is the main entrance with gated and guarded stairways going up and down. Immediately below that is the kitchen and dining area. All levels below that are housing for riders and servants. The highest housing levels have the highest ranking riders residing and on down until the servants quarters on the bottom level. All levels have halls and stairways big enough for dragons to pass, so dragons can be anywhere in the city.

The bonding process is kept secret the recruits are not let known until the day of the ritual. At this point there is not going back. The process involves a heavily magical ritual that rips the soul from both rider and dragon and then combines them into one. After this point rider and dragon are aware of each other's thoughts, feelings, and vital signs. They feel each other's pain, sadness, pleasure, and anger. Dragons can live for centuries(the oldest on record was 937), their long lives are passed on to their riders, and the aging for the riders is slowed down dramatically.

Plot
Riders and their dragons have suddenly started to come up missing. So far almost half of the fleet have disappeared and only two have been found. They were not complete when they were found however. Both dragon and rider were in a coma like state of being, their souls ripped apart. One by one riders are turning up all the same. Broken,and unable to communicate. No one is sure what is going on, and the higher ups
have been trying to keep everything under wraps so not to create a panic. With the amount of dead that keep piling up, the order have begun drafting people, sometimes tearing them from their home.

Rider:

Warriors are capable of fighting with any kind of melee weapon--swords, axes, daggers, etc--or long range weapons--bows, crossbows, etc.

Mages use magic, and are highly sought after. There are few in the world, and everyone of them--if found--are recruited into being a rider.
Most volunteer, but there are some who must be forced into it. The mages can use their dragon's power to strength their own spells, and usually have staffs or daggers as weapons--sometimes both.

On top of this, you have the option to make your character noble, or common born. Of course I will put limits on this because not everyone can be noble.

There are several ways to become a Rider. Most are born into it, the station passed on through parents to children. Volunteers are also very common, since the highest honor for a person is to be a dragon rider. Sometimes--in time of great need--people are forced. Mages are especially sought after since magic is how the bonding process occurs.

Ranks: Council(Approval only, Message me), Vetran(Oldest), Solider, Initiate(New rider), Recruit(Not yet a rider).

Dragon:

Dragons will be based off of western dragons, and while in previous Rps of mine, they have been able to change forms, they will not in this one. Dragons only have one form and that is their dragon forms. They do come indifferent variates however, and I will list them below later. Dragons
themselves cannot use magic besides their breath attacks, but they are able to help mages power up their spells.


Fire:These dragons are the biggest with a length of on average 40 feet from the head down. Their wingspan is at least 80 feet. Their coloring is any
hue of red, orange, brown, or combinations. Obviously their breath weapon is fire.


Ice: They are the second biggest, with their average height being 30 feet. They can be as big as an average size fire dragon, but it is extremely rare. Their wingspan is at least 60 feet. Their coloring is any hue of blue, purple, white, or combinations.


Lighting: They are the smallest at 20 feet, with a wingspan of 40 feet. Their coloring is any hue of blue, yellow, green, or combinations.

Rules:

1. Follow the rules of GtR. If you don't I'll feed you to Leah.

2. I will attempt to handle all disputes on my own before contacting a mod. If you have a problem notify me FIRST, then if we can't handle it feel free to go to a mod.

3. Please notify my if you will be gone for over a week. I'm giving you a little leeway here because I won't make it on some days. If you don't notify me, I will dispose of your character in anyways I see fit.


5.Paragraph form, please. I'm not too picky about grammar, but absolutely no chat speak. Spelling out words is not hard everyone does it. If you
aren't sure on how to spell a word that's alright, try the best you can, and we can figure it out I'm sure.


If you had a character in the last one I created, you may use the same character. I will assign your dragon and rider to you. If you want to have a say in the decision BOTH parties must message me and I will try to accommodate for you, it depends on the ratio of members.

My old character =)

*FYI the old characters are found in the OC Roster/Registration Archives/Second page/Dragon Gateway* MA the registration was a little different in the old one, did you want age and appearance here too?
http://gateway-2-rpg.4umer.net/t502-dragon-gateway-registration

Name: Nedria Verta

Age: 20

Gender: Female

Appearance: She is about 5'4 with a petite build. http://wallbase.cc/wallpaper/1157129 . She does have some muscle from working on the farm.

Rank: Mage Recruit

Occupation: Farmer

Background: Ever since it was discovered that she was a mage her parents kept her hidden to keep her from coming a dragon rider. They are somewhat nomadic, moving whenever people question Nedria's abilities. So far they have been able to stay a step ahead of the soldiers. She knows very little about the dragons, most of the information she's heard is secondhand or from her parents. She has been learning how to use magic from her grandmother. And unknown to her parents has been given a staff. She is not the most powerful of mages, but has a lot of potential. If the soldiers can get to her..

Er, yes. See I tried looking for it, and couldn't find it. lol I'll add the age and appearance into it. Thank you, Xeno.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name: Daiden

Age: 30

Gender: Male

Occupation: Soldier

Appearance: Daiden has an athletic build, and is about 6'1. His hair is cut short as to not get in his eyes when fighting or flying, and is sun bleached blonde. His eyes are a dark brown color, and his skin is slightly tanned in the winter, but darker in the summer due to being outdoors more.

Background: Daiden is one of the leaders of the Shadowmount Riders. He is one of the youngest, and only became a leader when his parents disappeared. He is the older brother of Kyra, and while he shares her need to find out what happened to his parents, he is less reckless than she. He takes his duty as a Rider and Leader very seriously, but he values his family more. If he had to choose between his leadership and his little sister he would in a heart beat. Part of his duties he preforms is the scouting and retrieval of promising recruits.



Name: Lyamir

Age: 2

Gender: Female

Species: Fire

Appearance: Lyamir has a dark chocolate brown stripe down her back that starts at the base of her skull and ends at the tip of her tail. The brown fades into a dark shade of red around it, which then fades into a brighter red on her lower legs and feet. She has two horns going down her muzzle, one slightly below her eyes and one on her nose. A set of four horns adorn her head, one set are long and go back like that of an antelope and then others are slightly smaller but the same. Spikes run along her spine, ending half way down her tail. The horns and spikes are black. Her eyes are a bright red.

Background: Young and rambunctious, she has a habit of stirring up the younger dragons. Quick to loose her temper, she is watched closely by the older dragons, and the hope is once she has her rider she will settle down.




Name: Drokui

Age: 2

Gender: Male

Spiecies: Fire

Appearance: He has a black stripe down his back that starts at the base of his skull and ends at the tip of his tail. The black fades into a dark shade of red around it, which then fades into a brighter red on his lower legs and feet. A set of four horns adorn his head, one set are long and go back like that of an antelope and then others curl around like a rams horns. Spikes run along his spine, ending half way down his tail. The horns and spikes are black. His eyes are a bright red.

Background: From the same clutch as Lyamir, they are essentially brother and sister. Dragon's don't really see each other as siblings however, and regard each other with a slight fascination. Drokui is more laid back than his clutch mate, and not as quick tempered. He does not belong to a rider as of yet, but is young and still growing.


Name:Isadeva

Age: 24

Gender: Female

Occupation: Mage

Appearance: 5'9 with wavy brown hair. Her skin is pale, almost snow white, and her eyes are a deep chestnut color.

Background: While Isadeva likes helping the riders with her magic, and spends a great deal of her time healing their dragons and others she has no real desire to become one herself. She knows eventually that they will force her to join their ranks, but until that day she is content to continue her life as is.

Name: Marcus Damos

Age: 26

Gender: Male

Appearance: 6'0. Hair is black, and slightly wavy; that falls slightly below his ears. He has a very soft and trusting sort of look that makes people easily trust him. His eyes are a light grey that contrasts with his brother's almost black eyes.

Rank: Veteran

Occupation: Solider

Background: He was recruited the same time as his older brother, but with his personality managed to proceed through the ranks at a faster pace.


Name: Inra

Age: 12

Gender: Female

Appearance: Inra is 20 feet tall, a runt compared to many, her wingspan barely reaches 50 feet but she flies fast and sure. Her scales are an opaque purple sometimes shimmering a light green when the sunlight hits them just right.

Species: Ice

Rider:

Background: Inra has always been a little skittish of people and also other dragons, it’s hard to say whether she’s be loyal to a fault but much like everyone else she just wants someone to understand her and care for her. She is the oldest unbonded dragon in the aviary. Calm and sweet by nature her bark is nowhere near as bad as her bite.

Name:Deirra

Age: 26

Gender: Female

Occupation: Mage

Appearance: 6'0. She has straight, blood red hair. She has eerily orange colored eyes, that most assume is because of her affinity of fire magic above all else.

Background: She was eager to join the ranks of the Order. The moment her magic began showing, she let her presence be known. She is spiteful, vengeful, and cunning. While her rank isn't that high with the Shadowmount riders, she is elite in the force of dragon riders that have begun their attack. She is aware of a lot more than she lets on, and spends most of her days antagonizing both Isadeva and Lazarus.

Name: Nephenee Demandred

Age: 16

Gender: Female

Occupation: Commoner

Appearance: Green eyes, long, sandy brown hair, 5'9, lithe, sturdy build.

Back Story: Her grandfather was the infamous general Stormy Demandred, who was known for his power and ferocity in battle, having led his men to many victories against impossible odds. Everyone thought he'd die on the battlefield, and perhaps he would've, except that his only daughter was murdered with her husband by a group of marauding bandits, over 100 strong, leaving behind a child. When told of the news, he immediately charged to the village. Leaving his grandaughter in the care of one of the survivors, he single-handedly charged into the bandits' stronghold and unleashed a swath of murderous fury and vengeance-filled wrath that would be sung forevermore in that area.

Afterward, to everyone's surprise, he honorably discharged from the service, took his granddaughter, and disappeared in the mountains. He has raised her to this day, teaching her how to survive and live off the land and how to fight. While well-read, she has had little experience in the way of people, despite a village being in the base of the mountains, instead taking her grandfather's hermetic tendencies and keeping to herself.

Back Story:
Lazarus and his younger brother Marcus were both drafted to be dragon riders, but his brother found it easier to brown nose his way into the ranks than by skill. Lazarus was more fit to be a dragon rider than Marcus but in the end they made Marcus the first pick and Lazarus just a lousy low ranking soldier. He was allowed to bond with a dragon, but not able to advance in the ranks. After a few years of second best he left the riders in the dark of night along with his bonded dragon.
Lazarus found an order of dragon riders who were more than willing to allow him in after seeing what he could do along with his hatred and distrust of the main order who shunned him.

Name: Simone Koeller

Age: 23

Gender: Female

Occupation: Mage

Appearance: She has straight, dark black hair just past her collarbone in length. Her eyes are a pale brown, and her skin is olive in color. She is 5'7", and her body is lithe and toned. She wears dark, serious clothing and high, brown leather boots.

Back Story: Simone is a bit of a hermit – she was born and lives alone in the mountains, away from civilization, and only ventures into the city when she is low on supplies. She hates her magic, seeing it as a curse rather than a gift ever since when she was younger her magic went out of control and killed her traveling companion. She likes people, but stays out of the city now because of her fear that she will be drafted and forced to use her magic. She also thinks that the relationship between dragon and rider is unnatural, and detrimental to all involved. She has a bitter, sarcastic personality, and is almost too realistic. She has trained herself to use a bow in the mountains, rather than try to use her magic.

Name: Kyra

Age: 24

Gender: Female

Occupation(Soldier, Mage): Soldier

Appearance: Slim, athletic build, long brown hair, usually worn in a ponytail to keep it out of the way, and green eyes. Kyra is generally wearing sturdy leather leggings and a snug white shirt to train easily in. https://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

Back Story: Kyra's parents are soldiers and are two of the ones that have gone missing recently. Her father has returned, but without his dragon and without his soul. Kyra has always been fierce, but what has happened to her parents has driven her more to find the people responsible for what is happening. Since she has no wish other than revenge, she spends most of her time training. While she looks up to her brother, she hasn't adopted any of his control. In fact, everyone might view her as reckless, but she doesn't care.



Name: Gray

Age: 4

Gender: male

Dragon Type: Ice

Appearance: A very light purple along his backbone, tail, and face, but the rest of his body is bright white.

Back Story: Gray was the firstborn of his parents, who both have riders. Unlike many of the other dragon families, he hasn't lost anyone. If he had to choose, he wouldn't have a rider, but he knows that soon enough he will have one without a choice. Gray doesn't understand the bond between dragon and rider and therefore feels that having a rider would be the end of his freedom. He is an outsider among the dragons as they resent his complete family and not even his parents understand his view on riders.



Name: Joelle

Age: 150, looks in her 60s

Gender: Female

Occupation(Soldier, Mage): Mage; leader of all the riders

Appearance: Tall and slim with white hair. Usually in comfortable, training clothes, but also wears mage's robes when needed. https://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

Back Story: Joelle started as a mage/rider when she was first recruited. She has always had a bit more power than her peers. That and her dedication to the mission of the riders helped her move up in the ranks. She is now the head of the Council. Joelle is honest to the point of bluntness and hard as nails with those that irritate or anger her, though she is always fair. To those she trusts and is close to, she is kind, understanding, and funny. That side of her is kept private. She is respected among all riders and her word is law. No one messes with her unless they want to hurt. Joelle and her dragon are practically one being they have been together so long. There is no one she trusts more than her dragon, Syat.



Name: Adela

Age: 15 years

Gender: Female

Appearance: Dark blue all over, but with bright yellow along her back ridges

Species: lightning

Rider: Marcus

Background: Adela has always been a bit of a rule breaker among the other dragons. She enjoys pushing the limits, going fast, and using her lightning. She is completely devoted to Marcus and he is the only human she really listens to.




Name: Leren

Age: 8 years

Gender: male

Appearance: clear ice blue all over, fading to white along legs, back, and face

Species: ice

Rider:

Background: Leren is somewhat of an arrogant dragon, very sure of his flying skills and likes to show off. He'll be the first to try something dangerous or risky, but is still riderless. He doesn't resist having a rider, but often boasts to the other dragons that he's so good, he doesn't need one.

(I am only takin one of my characters (slightly tweaked him) back because I wanna make sure I can keep up.)

Name: Zane Kreiss

Age: 17

Gender: Male

Occupation(Soldier, Mage): Soldier

Appearance: 5 foot 9 http://jackskillet.deviantart.com/art/OC-Soulless-175281656?q=favby%3Ajackskillet%2F45341571&qo=49 (without all the animalistic stuff, so basically, the skin color, the hair, the body structure and the face, all the rest is a lie xD)

Back Story: Zane was raised in a poor family and up until the age of 10, he had stayed there and worked in any type of way he could to help them out.

Until the day a Dragon rider came to their small village and said that he was recruiting youngsters who wanted to become strong, and if they wanted, dragon riders them selves.

Zane who had been craving adventure for a long time talked about it to his parents with such enthusiasm that they could not refuse, also wanting to see their son grow into something more than a poor citizen struggling for survival.

When he left with the Dragon rider with a couple of other kids he had recruited, they went somewhere in a forest and established their little colonie. They had to do everything, build there houses, hunt their food, filter their water, etc. Once well established and the tasks distributed between all the people staying there, they started training.

Zane greatly stood out to the Dragon Rider's eyes, he became his ''star pupil''. Zane had chosen to master the Glaive, liking the effectiveness of its long range and good guarding capability's, as well as the bow and arrow. When He turned 16, the Dragon rider had decided to offer a gift to him. He offered to bring him to the great city of Myreria for a chance to become a Dragon Rider himself.

Zane accepted without hesitation. But there was one condition, Zane had to run away after, and become as his old self was, a rogue Dragon Rider, living off their own capability's. Traveling alone with their dragon or in a small group, helping people in need.

Zane told him that, this was already in his intentions, he did not wanna be controlled, he wanted the taste of true freedom. So he gave is farewell to all the people in their colonie and left for the city. Once he got in the city, he became an initiate Dragon rider and is know awaiting his chance to bond with his very own dragon.

Name:Bithore

Age: 75

Gender: Male

Appearance:

Spoiler:






Species: Ice

Rider: rider less (said in post that som type of pairing would occur)



Background: Bithore was just recently persuaded into assisting the dragon riders of shadowmount. Before he had contact with them he lived by himself, in solitary cave. He lived in this cave alone, and only left it when he felt like stretching his wings or when he had to eat. there were a few farms close to his home. These were farms manufactured things that was only possible to create under the extreme condition in that area.
There were sadly only 4 left at the time bithore got contacted. Many of the people in that area had started to believe the rumors of a big dragon nearby, and some even believed the dragon was the reason for all of the snowstorms and ice everywhere.

Bithore, who tried his hardest not to get noticed by people often used the snowstorms as a cover when he was out flying. He had no trouble flying in these storms thanks to being an ice dragon. When he was a young dragon, and his mother was still alive, he used to fly around during very dangerous storms with her. This is the reason he became good flyer.

Re: Dragon Gateway

Post by Phirron on 5th May 2013, 6:30 pm

W.I.P.

Real Name:Takahiro Shun Koizumi (Japanese names they mean "valuable, noble", "fast/talented", "little spring".)

Alias:Hiro(prosperous) Haru(spring)

Age:25

Gender: Male

Appearance:
Spoiler:


Rank:Recruit

Occupation:Minor Noble Mage

Background:
Takahiro grew up the only child of Haru & Yuu Koizumi the last of the once Noble family of Koizumi. From the very first day of dragon bonding there had always been at least one Koizumi within the ranks of the dragon riders, and many of them throughout history have been powerful mages who for some reason always have had an affinity towards water magic. This all changed 500 years ago when something occurred, now lost to history and possibly a few old documents within the library of the Dragon Riders, that both stripped the family of its reputation and left virtually no one with magic within the family. They went from high nobility to minor nobility to middle class and finally into the poverty that Takahiro grew up in.

Takahiro and his family got by only through the grace of handouts and hard work in a small garden that barely grew enough food for the three of them to eat. That is until at the age of 6 the drought of magic that had plagued the Koizumi family all these years suddenly ended as Takahiro started to use magic. His father was amazed at what his son was able to do as all through his growing up when he would say he wished he had magic his family had said that no one within the family could ever use magic.

Seeing his son defy the odds his father decided to start gambling thinking Takahiro's magic was a sign of hope and good fortune. He was wrong he quickly lost what little money the family had and began incurring debt to try and get his way out of the hole he dug. Eventually he was forced to work of his debt through hard labor. When this happened he feared what his "employers" would do if they found out Takahiro was a mage so he made his son promise to keep his magic a secret. When Yuu got sick Takahiro's father didn't show up to "work" to take care of his wife, and this caused him his life. Takahiro was then forced at the age of 17 to work in his father's stead as well as take care of his mother. This would go on until he turned 20 because shortly afterwards his mother died leaving him alone to work off his fathers debt. In a fit of depression and rage Takahiro lashed out with his long hidden powers and wound up killing his overseers.

Just like that Takahiro was alone and a wanted criminal, though thankfully no one knew it was he who had killed them, forced to a life of constantly moving from town to town occasionally selling his abilities as a mage to make money. It was during one of these town skippings he overheard some slander thrown at someone that involved being called a Koizumi. The man became furious at the insult and started a brawl with the one who had said it to him. Naturally curious he asked another bystander about the insult and it was here that he first learned that the name was once a proud thing to be called as they were a High Noble family but that around 500 years ago something happened and the family almost over night had become disgraced and eventually there name had become an insult in some areas. From that moment on he took on an alias that was a combination of his mother's nickname for him and his father's name, Hiro Haru.

Perplexed by what had happened to his family all those years ago he started researching them and once he learned of their former praise at being some of the best water mages around he started focusing more of learning to control his magic and quickly became adept as it was almost common sense to him. The more powerful he got the more he was able to get work as a water mage on farms and even occasionally to put out fires. He started making some decent money and was able to purchase some new silk clothes that were inspired by the rumors of snake like dragons from some faraway land. With the new clothes in hand he made his way to the village of Springfall to announce his arrival and willingness to volunteer to be a mage dragon rider.

Gender: Male

Rank: Council

Occupation: Chef-on-the-go / Wanderer

Background:
Spoiler:
Alhaim grew up in a very unassuming village on the edge of a desert, and at a very young age he was already showing signs of being an adventurer on top of being a troublemaker. He would run around in the markets with his troupe of unruly friends, causing all sorts of mischief and mayhem. At the end of the day, fruit sellers would find a few apples missing, ladies’ skirts would be unusually ruffled, and the city guards would be making facepalms at another failed attempt to apprehend them all.

That went on until one day, Alhaim grew old enough to go out into the world and live on his own. At that point, he had acquired certain skills that would enable him to track down anybody and kill them. Well, that’s just part of it. He was also able to train himself and others in the art of guerrilla battles and stealthy skills. As their little group grew, their operations became riskier and more large-scale. Soon enough they already took over their little town and one of Alhaim’s most trusted lieutenants became its mayor. Meanwhile, Alhaim took this opportunity to pack up, suit up, and leave on an adventure. At age 25, he left his little town and went out into the world, searching for a live dragon to tame.

See, he had always been fascinated by the concept of Riders and their Dragons, fighting the forces of darkness and whatnot. Besides, it was cool to ride on the dragon, with the wind whipping on your face and chicks lining up at the cities. And supervising a town wasn’t exactly Al’s style, even if he was qualified enough for it. He was laid-back, mostly drowsy, and very sarcastic, not to mention the fact that he had quite the spirit of adventure. So he went on a great adventure in order to find himself his own dragon.

On his first year of travel, he ended up in a mountain range looking for any trace of dragons. One day he was drowsy and ended up falling on top of a strange-looking rock ridge, which turned out to be the back of an elder lightning dragon. Actually, everything was sort of coincidentally perfect; Alhaim ended up in just the right riding position, and the dragon was too sleepy to do anything about it. From then on they bonded together unknowingly, like friends and not the soul-tearing thing he had heard about, ever since the dragon simply flew off into the sky with Alhaim still riding on its back.

The next year was spent honing his skills with the dragon while wandering all across the world in search of new adventures. He developed a penchant for dual crossbows and trained himself with it, hunting down game and bounties and targets at parlor games. He would never stay in one place longer than a week, and would always fly towards new places on the back of his trusty dragon. Soon enough he discovered that he had magical talent, and Soreth (the dragon) offered to train him in it.

The next year he found himself in Shadowmount, where the Dragon Riders are said to reside. He unceremoniously dropped down and asked for the mages in the mountain to initial the ritual of bonding. Alhaim wasn’t particularly fond with the concept of ripping souls out and merging them, but he went with it anyway. After he got used to the feeling of the bond, he suddenly challenged a few riders to duels. With crossbow, magic, and lightning dragon breath he trumped them all. Needless to say he caught the eye of the higher-ups, who recognized his strength, skill, and unorthodox tactics atop a dragon. So he became a recognized Dragon Rider, though he still remembered the life of a nomad, and would often volunteer for long-term missions far away from Shadowmount onto other lands.

And now, a few years later he found himself sitting in a seat at the Council, the governing body among Dragon Riders. His great skill in dragon riding plus his contributions in forging diplomatic relations with far-off lands pretty much gave the seat to him. Though he’s the kind of member who would rather doze off on the back of his dragon, or fly off somewhere instead of attending a very important meeting.
