    Do you mind if I join in? If not then my character will be -

    Rolynd Dante, mercenary by trade. I'm not sure yet where he'll come from. He's experienced in fights and in adventuring. On his travels he has managed to acquire two long barrelled pistols, a twelve barrel gun and a cutlass. These are the few possessions he owns. He's lean, tall, jet black hair and a halk like nose. He wears a battered great coat and black riding boots. He's a hard man, but does care for others, especially those paying him.

    Sorry to be a nuisance, but I can't seem to find the site with details on the world you're creating, I'd really appreciate a link so i can do a bit of research. Thanks.

    the site isn't up yet, hehe. It will be :) dont worry.

    some general notes on hispali:

    Magic is basically non-existant

    Science is the prime factor of the nation these years with only Tantalos being superior in technology.

    Religion has become more tradition than actual faith. The priesthood however has strong faith in their god Phoenix, the bringer of life.

    Races are primarily humans and gnomes. Some minotaur tribes exist on the vast fields, and fey creatures near the Laerian border. Orcs live in Spine of the World mountains, a long mountain range at the northern border, (mountains north-west, desert north-east).

    Weapons would consist of swords, bows, xbows, guns, cannons and the hispalic dragoons. The dragoons are paragliding sky-riders dropping kegs of gunpowder down upon an eventual enemy. The lack of long distance movement on these things, make them used only as defense so far. They're situated in the Everseeing eye of Orcinus, due to it being the tallest building in hte city.

    Platemail is still being used, as the gun techonology isn't improved enough to break solid steel, but more than able to break the skull or hide of a troll.

    Just gotta ask, seeing as my character's going to know these things - what's the state of firearms technology in your world. Has the flintlock been invented, or is it still taper-lit arquebuses?

    flintlock is the hammer like thing that ignites the gunpowder right? If so, yeah, it's been invented :)

    Sorry, hadn't realised the site wasn't up. I think the person I was going to use would be a bit too advanced, so perhaps a tribesman would be better.

    His name would be Ry'all of a forest land (could you make a suggestion please, thanks), wielding a tomahawk and dagger. He wears no armour, but is a proficent scout, hunter and tracker. If need be, he is capable of using a gun.

    there's the site, I know I promised more contents, but I'm dead tired after todays work. I'll put some more tomorrow, and update accordingly.

    @Morningstar, he sounds fine to me. Wouldn't be out of the way to have that many guns, but you'd still need to reload them all with the classical gunpowder horn ;)

    I'd like to do a character who's learned to cast some simple spells. A student who devoted his entire life to the study of Magic. His goal is to re-discover the 'True Magic', or what he believes it to be. He wants to find where the magic went.

    Sounds plausible?

    I’ve been thinking more on my character. I’ve decided to go with the tribesman idea, possibly coming from the borders of Karthad. Perhaps he could be employed as a scout. He owns few possessions, his tribe, the Hora, being nomadic. He is proficient in the use of gunpowder weapons, being known by his tribe as ‘Long Rifle’, his real name being Ry’all, meaning ‘eagle eye’. He also wields a Tomahawk and dagger. His other skills lie in hunting, tracking and scouting. He is lean, tall with jet-black hair and red skin (native american sorta thing), dark brown eyes and a braid hanging from his right temple, a symbol of the Hora tribe. That’s all I can think of now. Thanks for the link Lokken, it helped me out a lot. Thanks.

    I'd like to jump in as the red-clad student of Magic, if it'd be all right. I'll wait to post until i get the OK from Lokken

    sure thing. Thanks to Rallymama for that one. Didn't read of your request to join as apprentice before I'd posted, seeming she was one step ahead of all of us ;)

    updated the timeline on the site

    [​IMG] Hmmm, Morningstar's jumped me on my idea. Maybe I'll have to come up with a new character.

    Okay, can I have a minotaur using a hammer lock pistol, and a sword at the same time?

    My pardons to all those involved, whom I promised so much and gave so little.
