    Default The Academy [Remake 3.0]

    328 years ago, during the summer of 781 A.S (After Shattering), a band of old heroes and heroines would gather at the Temraldian city of Transberg, to discuss about the recent events concerning the numerous young adventurers that have met a gruesome death in a monster's den or ended up as a galley-slave in Tulga. Their solution to the problem was to start a guild, a place where adventurers could meet each others and give each others tips and tricks. What they instead created was a school, a school that would later on become an academy. The Academy of Adventurers of Transberg, first among the five great Academies on the continents of Midland. 328 years have passed, and the Academy still stands strong, and is in fact about to start its 328th season. What awaits for our new students?

    I've decided to let it take place in my fantasy world which you can find down below:
    http://bbs.evony.com/showthread.php?t=203956

    But if you don't feel like reading through the kingdoms, I will give you a simple comparison to real life countries. Flag descriptions next to the real-life comparison.
    Midland= European continent
    Avalon= England+Scotland (Yellow lion with red background)
    Gallia= France (Two gray, crossed swords with blue background)
    Temrald= England+France (White horse with gray background)
    Kanthlor= Spain (Yellow pitchfork with black lines with yellow background)
    Algania= Normandy-ish (think Duke William the Conquer) (Red flame surrounded by a yellow snake)
    Aethinian Empire= Roman Empire (in medieval era) (Two gray hawks with a white cross between them)
    Venstland= Germany (A brown deer with purple background)
    Falkon= Germany (A black hawk with purple background)
    Vaegir= Russia (A
    Scania+the other Nordland kingdoms= Typical viking/medieval Scandinavia (Various)
    Barath's Realm= Religious Snow Elves that worships an ancient dragon. Pretty cold place. (Black dragon with ice-blue background)
    Grayport= Italian City State, but heavily influenced by Avalon and the more western countries (Gray ship with blue background)
    Catodral+Teudo= Italian/Greek City States (C=Two-headed Harpy, T=Two-headed Snake)
    Rhodok= Italy in a mountain, got the best castle in the world so far (A black bear with a green background)

    Zulia= Middle East/Africa continent
    Zulian Sultanate+Saladan Sultanate= Arabic sultanates like Egypt (Z=A spear piercing a boulder, S=A knuckle hand)
    Quelish Kingdom= Sand Elves, their leader calls himself Pharaoh, the Godborn! (lame joke?) (A yellow hourglass with a eye above and below it)
    The Five Great Cities (which are completely independent and doesn't take crap from each others)= Arabic with a pinch of slavery and merchants (No flags)

    Shin= Asian Islands
    Island of Nippon= Tiny Japan island
    The Three Kingdoms= Big Japan island, divided in three major Clans
    Island of Kobo= Tiniest Japan island
    Hiudia= India, the biggest among the islands of Shin, split up in various kingdoms

    Elvenland= Elvish continent (humans are forbidden for being too human)
    Aynish Dynasty= What remains of the once great Aynish Empire that once controlled the world before the Shattering. Rather hostile to everything but keeps to themselves.
    Edaiun+Laveil+Gevauin= Elvish kingdoms that doesn't want to be part of the Aynish Empire anymore

    Valden= Europe, their leaders calls themselves Dukes instead of Kings.
    Orien= France+Germany
    Midoria= England+Italy
    Harn (pronounced 'Aurn)= France+Italy
    Gunari+Drynvald+Furald=Civilized Orcish kingdoms, England+France+Italy+Germany

    Name:
    Age:
    Gender:
    Race (be creative):
    Appearance:
    Ups and Downs (good/bad at stuff, at least two in each):
    Nationality (really only to know where you were born, so that we know your accent):
    Background (don't be famous, the Academy doesn't allow those that are already known for being awesome):
    Here's a list of things to think of:
    1: Most people can't read, seeing how there is no public schools.
    2: The currency in Midland, where the RP will mostly take place, is Denars, copper coins.
    3: If the nobility tells a peasant to eat a living pig, then they better do that or they will find their home burnt down to the ground. Some nobles are mean.
    4: If your parents weren't married when you were born, then you're a basterd, which means you don't have the rights to inherit your father's stuff. Your last name is also the name of the place you were born in, for an example Jannge Transberg.
    5: If you happen to be rather potent with magic, then the Magus Order will take you to the Citadel of Arcane Arts in Gallia to train you. You will also see the lack of care they give if you say no to them.
    6: The major religion in Midland is Divinism, where you pray to the Divine One, or God.

    List of NPC's ("" means that that isn't their real name):
    Headmaster Jaidus, an old man that was once known as a great mage of the Magi Order and for being the late king Garian's Hand and Informant. He is now in charge of the Academy in Transberg, Temrald.
    Instructor Lady Thorne, a kind middle-age woman that is in charge of the special class, where Drows and other people that can't be out in the sunlight are.
    Instructor Reinhold Hunt, a grizzly man that is in charge of the melee combat training.
    Instructor Arven, a rather silent elf that is in charge of archery and wildlife training.
    Doctor Julian Napon, a Gallian doctor that is in charge of the Academy's medical and alchemical supplies. Will say his mind against people, but will still do his duties.
    Princess Catherine I, the heir of the Alganian Kingdom. 16 year old, but small for her age and rather shy.
    Lady Faye Barth, the bodyguard of young Princess Catherine. She's also the heir to the island fortress of Storm's Cliffs, a mighty stronghold off the shores of the Alganian coast.
    Lord Herbert, a mysterious man in the service of king Edrian Vareth II of Temrald. He holds information that many would like to get their hands on. Despite his weight, he can still move rather elegant.
    "Tally MacTally", a large hunter on 203 cm with a pack of dogs that our heroes meet in the forest outside of Transberg. He said he was a nobles son, but he was rather foul in mouth.
    Nurse Margaret, a nurse in the Academy.

    Fair enough
    It might be best to post about stuffs that is happening in the world right now, so that you can use it for your own app's.

    Midland
    Two years have passed since King Harlaus II forced his niece, Princess Isolla II, daughter and heir to the former king, to leave Avalon and give him the crown. Most nobles of Avalon have accepted his rule, but the Highland Lords have recently started a rebellion, hoping to take the crown for themselves.
    Venstland and Falkon have united their forces, so that they can invade the mighty Vaegir Kingdom. King Yaroglek of Vaegir have responded with ordering his Boyans to prepare for war.
    The Academy of Adventurers in Temrald is about to start a new year, and Temrald will soon celebrate that its been almost a hundred years since their last war.
    The Aethinian Empire have set up blockades on the trade routes that goes to the Ikathian Peninsula, where the three City States of Grayport, Catedral and Teudo lies. The routes that goes to Rhodok up in the Rhodokian Mountain are still open.
    Rumors about a new cult in Barath's Realm are the latest thing in the Nordish Kingdoms. Wherever they are true or not are still undecided seeing how none is allowed in the Snow Elves land.

    Zulia
    The Zulian Sultanate and the Saladan Sultanate have made a ceasefire agreement, but skirmishes near the border are still present.
    The two Free Cities Ichamur and Halmar, built near the passage in Sarraca's Mountain, have started to build a massive gate in the passage, so that they can easier handle the number of refugees that is coming from the Zulian-Saladan borderland.

    Shin
    Sailors that were allowed to resupply on the Three Kingdoms say that there will soon be a war among the three great Clans, the Tohan, the Otori and the Maruyama.

    Valden
    The three Grand Dukes of the human countries in Valden have agreed to fund a expedition to the unknown Western Seas. The man that will lead the expedition is the zulian explorer and seafarer Salador Sah the Great.

    Elvenland
    The three elvish kingdoms of Edaiun, Laveil and Gevauin are preparing their forces in case of that the Aynish Dynasty decides to attack them.

    Name: Sabuit Nhiliira Shadowstrider

    Age: 102

    Gender: Female

    Race (be creative): Drow Elf

    Appearance:


    Ups and Downs:
    + Combat with a scimitar and a whip
    + Offensive Magic
    + Ranged Combat
    + Lockpicking
    + Trapfinding
    + Stealth
    + Swimming


    - Combat with two-handed weapons
    - Bright Light
    - Defensive Magic, including healing Magic
    - Somewhat fragile; Sabuit can't take much in the way of punishment


    Nationality: Avalon. Well, she has a decidedly 'English' accent, and she's a Drow (so she doesn't live on the surface much), but in terms of what country you'd associate her accent with, it's Avalon. Or possibly Temrald. Maybe Temrald.

    Background:

    Born into the prestigious House of Shadowstrider as the youngest of three children, Sabuit Shadowstrider has always been a rather introverted girl. Most of her free time was either spent reading, writing or simply thinking in the corner about life's mysteries, compared to playing sports with her siblings or training at swordsmanship. Sabuit always preferred books to sports (quite unlike Merinyon or Aurelia) and would often be found late at night writing things in her diary or just reading a book. In Garan's words, "it's almost as if there's something wrong with the girl". However, different people have different personalities, and Sabuit is more of a reserved, calm individual. She began to train in the art of using two weapons (a scimitar and a whip) and began to train herself in lockpicking, trapfinding and stealth. She took up swimming by herself in Silverwater Lake, and learned how to swim by herself, and gradually, over many years, she began to be more social. At her 100th birthday, Sabuit decided that she would ask Vierinissa and Garan to go to the Transberg Academy, and after 2 years, they finally relented and she was accepted into the Academy. Vierinissa had also trained Sabuit in arcane and divine magic, as it was hoped that this training would show that the Citadel of Arcane Arts would not be necessary for Sabuit... Only time will tell if the plan succeeds.

    Your both accepted. Bro, I need you to give me a guide on how to start a skype ooc thing. Might as well do my own app now.

    Name: Brandon "Bran" Coaster
    Age: 19
    Gender: Male
    Race: Human
    Appearance:

    On his tunic there is a crest, a silver fish that is pierced by a red knife, the crest for the Coaster Family, a small vassal family to the lord of Tihr.
    Ups and Downs:
    Ups: Got some experience with using a sword, knows a lot about most places and lore in the world.
    Downs: Weak to alcohol, can't use a bow or a crossbow, will say his opinion at the wrong place.
    Nationality: Temrald
    Background: Bran was born as the third son to Hoster Coaster, lord of Coaster Castle and the nearby village of Coastal. He was trained to become a page to a neighboring lord but there was always someone else that got the honor. But lord Hoster didn't mind, he was happy that he could have a son at home.
    Adrian, the oldest son and the heir, was serving as a squire in lord Argus Blackcoast's court in Tihr and his other son, Malfred Coaster, had joined the Pathfinders.
    At a early age, Bran had always been interested in history, lore and rumors that he often heard in the castle and down in the village. He wanted to explore the world, learning more about it. He convinced his father to let him join the Academy so that he could take the first step of making his dream come true.

    Sounds like a wood elf (Faey'nari in the elven tongue in this world). Accepted.

    Name: Adrian Steele

    Age:
    20

    Gender: Male

    Race:
    Furian (looks much like an elf, but the eyes are much more vividly colored, along with some other minor differences.)

    Appearance: Standing at about six feet, he is about the average height for his race. He tends to wear various shades of blue with his clothes, which have simply yet fashionably effective design.

    When either attending his classes in the Palace, or going hunting with other members of the royal court, he always wore a blue and grey uniform (to match his eyes), and brought along a bow, a set of throwing knives attached to his shirt, and a short sword at his side. A dark blue coat and padded gloves always went over them.

    His hair is usually a lighter color, usually blonde, which greatly contrast with his unusually rich-colored eyes. ((OOC note: It's like he's wearing some extreme version of blue contact lenses, with some elements of grey.)) Like most Furians, his eye color is very one-sided, and it never changes color unless in extreme circumstances.

    He only wears two emblems, both on the collar of his neck, on either side. The one on the right is always the emblem of his father, King Nobunaga, and the other is always an emblem representing a favorite trophy of his.



    Ups and Downs:

    Pros

    1. In terms of fighting, he's almost a tank. He can take at least as much of the pain as he can dish back out to his foes.

    2. He's intelligent, which comes with many added pros -- and cons.

    3. He stands without peer in throwing knives, or the small blasts of magic that he's able to conjure up from time to time.

    4. Being a prince, naturally his education will come firsthand in his childhood. Growing up in the Imperial Palace, he was taught how to lead armies, deal with other nations, and any other things that a king should be able to do -- however, his combat training has been reserved for the Academy at Transberg, where his father the King is sending him.


    Cons

    1. Being a prince, he's been brought up to despise the peasantry, and never to show respect to someone below his esteemed station until he thinks they've earned it. Less than a handful of people in his life have ever had the opportunity to earn his own personal respect, so it's not a good thing for him.

    2. For as good as he is with knives and ranged weapons, his skills with blades and other forms of close combat are very lacking. However, his strength and speed offset his overall lack of skill in fistfights.

    3. Being intelligent comes hand in hand with a sense of arrogance that normally accompanies everyone with such minds. In his case, being a prince only intensified his near-extreme bias towards "uncivilized" people, as the members of his father's royal court would call them. In other words, if he cannot have an intelligent conversation with an educated individual, he'd rather remain silent unless he's dismissing them.

    4. Being brought up at the top of the pecking order from the start, Adrian never really works in a group, unless he's the one calling the shots, if even that. Even though he can easily tell that something is too tough for him, he usually tackles it before giving up, because in his mind, the idea of having to work in a group takes away the superiority that self-sufficiency brings to someone -- something that is highly common among Furian nobility.



    Nationality: Furian, from the central island of Shin, where his father rules over all the Furians on the small continent.

    Background: Overall, there is not a whole lot to say. He led a rather uneventful life as a prince, aside from the fact that King Nobunaga refused to let his son soften up too much from the luxurious Palace life that was always associated with Furian royalty.

    He made sure his son was always strong, fit, intelligent, and had the best education in the land. The Academy is the final phase of his education, for reasons known only to upper Furian nobility. In spite of the wide disapproval of sending his own offspring so far from his country for an education, he was sent anyway when he was strong enough to fend for himself, yet young enough to learn.

    However, King Nobunaga made doubly sure that there were no Furians escorting him the whole way, only elves, Drow, and the like. He secretly made sure that his son received the most foreign exposure he could, because in the mind of King Nobunaga Steele, change began from the top down... And he wanted to change the xenophobia of his people -- hence one of the main reasons his son had just now reached the Academy, so far away from home.
