Wake the Dragon Discussion

So this is what I have in mind so far.

Cynathrax is attacking a village, eating people and whatnot and has a lot of summoned creatures wrecking havoc and chaos.

Shrub and Dybia's characters come along and manage to defeat him, thanks to Dybia's matched strength and Shrub's beliefs in the Goddesses making her stronger against him. They take his glaive and grimoire in the belief that it would render him powerless (which is just somewhat true, mainly means he can't summon imps nor get information from his grimoire).

Before they attempt to kill him or bind him to take him off, Flueworks arrives and drives the two away. Cynathrax is quite frustrated at having his things taken and wishes to get them back. Flueworks agrees to help him because Cynathrax would be able to restore him to his dragon form. With the pact made, the two of them set off. Cynathrax's bond with the glaive means that he'll have a general idea of how close he is to it.



The only other additional detail that I had was that I like the idea of Dybia and Shrub working together with some sort of clan or guild or organization that formed to combat evil in the area. That way there would be a fortress or stronghold that Cynathrax and Isilth would have to fight through.

What happens between is up for discussion, and the conclusion of the roleplay is fairly open so long as Cynathrax has his items back. I'd just like for us to talk a bit before we start so we have the spine of the roleplay established.

Re: Wake the Dragon Discussion

I suppose with that basic set up mine and Shrub's characters would have to get away for about three days before yours comes in pursuit because of the little rule on the glaive, or it would just fly back to him. That or have it stolen right before he needed to replace the blood.

Re: Wake the Dragon Discussion

The dragon form that is mentioned here is actually his Black dragon form. He can currently transform into a weaker green dragon form.

Just so you all know.

True. Alternatively you could just find a way to contain it, that way it wouldn't be able to find its way back.

Re: Wake the Dragon Discussion

Ok, Idea for me and Shrub to start on. That guild thing you mentioned, let's say they have had run ins with Cynathrax before and lost a lot of men, and get desperate enough to call for outside help and we begin with a lovable squad of redshirts escorting our characters to the town he's attacking.

Bonus points if they actually wear red uniforms.

Re: Wake the Dragon Discussion

Just wondering how this organization will get a hold of Leita, as she kinda lives in the dome right now.

Re: Wake the Dragon Discussion

Could just have her open the wrong door and end up there. The dome is an unpredictable thing like that.

Re: Wake the Dragon Discussion

That's usually what happens to her. I suppose it's just getting a little old. But it doesn't matter. Will do.

But still, she opens the wrong door and just ends up somewhere. How will this organization notice her and ask her for help?

Re: Wake the Dragon Discussion

I would imagine such a guild/clan were searching for someone to aid them, and the Dome answered their search by giving them Leita?

Re: Wake the Dragon Discussion

I'm already imagining all the fun Dybia would have after stealing a weapon almost magnetically attracted to his enemy.

Miracles?

It was just an idea. I mean, maybe one person in particular has the power to sense magic and suddenly notices you blip on their radar.

Which could make things interesting, Cynathrax knows where his glaive is, and this person would be able to sense them slowly honing in on you guys.

Yup. Leita could sense him coming.

Re: Wake the Dragon Discussion

Alright, I'm kind of thinking this organization could be like the Wardens in Dragon Age? Basically a smaller, elite group of individuals trained to fight off evil and corruption that sprouts up in this land. Being that Dybia and Leita are both good characters and together would be able to defeat Cynathrax (dispelling Cynathrax and using "holy" magic, and Dybia's superhuman strength probably rivals Cynathrax's), soooo somehow they get in contact and quickly take you to the village that's under attack.

Speaking of I was just going to make this roleplay some generic land, unless anyone had a world we could use for it.
  • 1: Village under attack, Cynathrax defeated,
  • 2: Isith arrives and drives others off
  • 3: An agreement is made that he'll retrieve the items if Cynathrax helps lift the curse.
  • 4: Good guys go off wherever, Cynathrax and Isith go searching as soon as three days have passed and he can sense the glaive.
  • 5: We set off to find it, it's locked up in a fortress.
  • 6: Cynathrax gets his items back and completes the ritual, however Isith becomes a mindless black dragon.

At that point I would think Cynathrax would just leave and let Isith run loose in the stronghold.

Sound about right?

Re: Wake the Dragon Discussion

Kool ... what happens to Dybia and Leita after the dragon is unleashed?

Re: Wake the Dragon Discussion

Most likely, Dybia and Leita will have the upper hand on the two. Which will change when Isith's seal is broken. But being mindless, it's only brute force, so while he will cause destruction and rampage, and kill a lot of goons, he's is not too dangerous. Perhaps they try to defeat him, or escape, or just wait it out till he leaves? Or perhaps they try to strengthen the seal again?

Re: Wake the Dragon Discussion

All in all though besides what we should call this monster fighting group that recruits them we should have a pretty solid setup here to try and start. One more thing though, what do we call the land our characters will be spit out into for this? Or at least the town Cynathrax will be attacking?

Re: Wake the Dragon Discussion

I'll name the village being attacked at least. I'll see about starting the thread later today.


As for the overall land, I'm currently working on a world that I'm gonna post in the repository once I'm finished (which consequently is where my next BA character will be from). I can see about having this tie in with it, but I don't know when I'll have it posted (so far I've completed one kingdom and I want to have a few others as well.)

Re: Wake the Dragon Discussion

I has posted!

Also, I have edited Leita's profile, organizing her spells into spoiler tags and categories to make it easier to read and not have to skim through so much text at a time. I hope it helps, should you need to reference it when she uses her magic.
