RP Planning: Nornalhorst

This is the planning thread for a dungeon crawl RP.

Who?
This RP is open to adventuerers of any kind. There will be no payment besides what you can plunder from the ruin (I promise there will be treasure enough to go around, I mean it's an Ayleid ruin afterall) so if your character is a mercenary and expects payment, maybe this isn't the right RP for that character.

Where?
Nornalhorst is an Ayleid ruin located in the West Weald, a bit east of Skingrad. It appears in Oblivion and I assume it will be present during the events of ESO. Since it was in game this gives us the advantage of having a detailed layout of the ruin's two zones.

RP has started: Party's current location below.

Here is the location in relation to Skingrad

Here it the first zone. Things to note here are the entrance (marked as "out") and the door to the next zone (there are two marked as C and D, though for the purposes of this RP D will be inaccessible.)

I will add the second map when we are closer to that point.

Why?
In this RP a band of cultists and necromancers have taken the abandoned ruins for their base of operations. Jo'Naar will not let the evil go unchecked so he has left word with the innkeepers of the Imperial City to send like-minded adventurers to the ruins. If you do decide to join, your character will probably have heard this at an inn, and I would think your character would need to have strong convictions against necromancy to want to make the journey to the ruins. There could be other reasons though. Maybe your character is interested in studying the wild elves? Or perhaps just an explorer who will go anywhere? It could be anything, but your character should have a purpose for going.

How?
There will be room for four others in this RP. The party will face many lesser hostiles that I will allow the individual RP'er to control, just please don't kill more than 2-3 per post. Any special boss-like enemies will be controlled by myself. When the party comes across some treasure, I will let you decide what your character finds, but please keep it reasonable. As far as the pace of this RP, I will make a post setting the scene and generally give everyone in the RP time to respond before posting again. There are some cases where individuals will be interacting, but try not to post back and forth too much. As such there might be lulls in the postings for this RP, but it is not dead! If you do not want to continue we can work something out OOC, but I would like this RP to be finished and not end in the middle of the adventure.

Rules
I don't want to have many rules, but I feel like some guidelines should be set at the very least. The party will need to sleep and eat throughout the RP. This will be worked out better in the RP, but it is something to be aware of anyways. Keep things interesting. React to what others have said in their posts, it goes a long ways to making the RP fun for everyone, at least I think so. In battles, it is fun to kick ass, but it is also realistic to make mistakes and slip up from time to time. Just try to balance things out I guess is what I'm trying to say. Also keep in mind how much weight you are carrying and how that will affect what treasure you can hold (you may have to leave something behind, it's up to the individual) Just be aware that all IC actions could have consequences, however unintended or otherwise they may be.

Player Characters
Do'Shanji & Jo'Naar - Grape Drank
Malcolm Ophicius
Do'Zakar - Took an arrow in the knee
Requies - MaxxRocker
Eochaid - Thorfinn

Notable Non-Player Characters (Bosses) - OOC knowledge*
Velsan Trevani - Half Breton, Half Imperial, Velsan is a powerful necromancer who is believed to be around 500 years old. He is an expert mage in the illusion, destruction and conjuration trees. Velsan is the leader of the Nornalhorst cult, an organization dedicated to its leader's twisted visions.

Azuk Gro-Bakh and Corelian - Azuk is an incredibly strong Orcish warrior. The seasoned warrior is a mercenary by trade, which is what brought him to Nornalhorst in the first place. He fights in the typical fashion of an Orcish berserker. Corelian is an Altmer necromancer, armed with a dagger and donned in enchanted black robes. He is slightly above the middle age for an Altmer, giving him much time to practice his sinister skills. However he does not seem to be the brightest Altmer for he still has much to learn. His fighting style is typical of most spellcasters. Together the two stand guard in the immediate entrance of the ruins.

Background
This RP immediately follows a three-part story that I have written. Here is a link to the first if you want to read it: Click. Not necessary, but it will give you a better background on the adventure. I will add more to this section once the antagonists have been thought of.

RP is now open: Link



If you would like to join please let me know below. Once the RP starts, this thread will be used to solve OOC questions or issues that you might have. Thanks for reading, and hopefully this is something you may be interested in!

Grape always fun RPing with you so I would like to join. It sounds like a good idea and I may have a necromancer suggestion for you if you are still looking.

Alright cool guys, just let me know what character you would like to use. There is not a huge rush, I'll probably have the thread up later this week.

@MaxxRocker yeah I'm definitely interested to hear your ideas for the necromancers.

Still room for one, maybe two more.

Looks like a pretty cool RP, Grape Drank! Looks like you've planned it out pretty well and have some intriguing dynamics in mind. Glad to see you have an organized OOC thread up too for it. These things certainly help keep the RP organized and tidy!

I won't be able to join because I want to finish the two I'm currently in first. But good luck on getting this running and having it run smoothly!

I think I'll use Do'zakar, I need to get him fleshed out some more. He's a mercenary but he's a proud Khajiit warrior-monk at heart so his motives would be regaining some honour or something and proving himself and his skills rather than loot, if that's okay with you.

Thanks HS, it's my first attempt at hosting an RP so I wanted it to be organized at least!

Took, yeah that is perfect. I've added him to the list. I'll let it go for a couple days to see if anyone else is interested. Probably have the thread up at the end of the week.

Looks like a well structured, though out RP Grape. I'd like to join with Eochaid, and he'd be there primarily for loot.

Thorfinn I have added your character to the list! Niblanednus, I had originally planned for just four others. If things change, such as someone needing to drop out, perhaps there would be an opportunity to join then. Thanks for your interest!

Is this RP after the "Captured" RP? because Requies and Malcolm (if that's who he's using) have will met in that RP though at the moment that's not a huge deal because intro's haven't been made between the chars to be unrealistic.

Okay that shouldn't have much of an impact then, the characters that would know each other haven't met properly yet so things should work fine.
