Muad'Dib Posted April 17, 2004 Share Posted April 17, 2004 [COLOR=DeepSkyBlue]This is not the reality you know. It is the reality of the sky. Your dreams, your fears, and your destiny are in the hands of the clouds now. Welcome to Cloud Nine. The details as to how we came to the sky are not known, all we know is that we live out our lives just way the people of old did, only we are people of the clouds, and they are the earth-bound. The earth-bound are no more than myths now, as is the ground itself. We live above all that is tied with the earth, sailing among the clouds. Who are we? We are people. No different from you or your friends. Countless centuries ago, we were brought to the sky, and so we lived out our lives among the clouds, without worry or doubt, until the ground itself was thought to be nothing but legend. Great cities, floating in the wind, with the traders, and the merchants, and those along for the ride, sail from place to place on their ships. Legends also say that the ships used to sail on water, like what we harvest from the clouds. No one can say if the folk-lore is true. All we know is that we are of the sky now, and we shall never return from whence we came. Now the eccentrics and the wanderers seek one thing... Cloud Nine. It is said to be the final destination, the 'last exile', the last step into paradise... and the truth to all the mysteries. ~~~[/COLOR][COLOR=Sienna]Some of you may recognize the title. I tried a similar RP of the same title a long time ago, and it unfortunately didn't make it far. Let's hope this one turns out better. The basic plot: You, shall you choose to join, are a person of the clouds, living out your life in one of the great floating cities, or the air-ships that traverse the open skyes. All you've ever known are the skyes, and you probably doubt that real land ever existed. No one knows how the massive cities were built, or who built them, but everyone's here, and most everyone's happy. But you, one way or another, gte caught up in the search for the mystical 'Cloud Nine'. There is some magic in this RP, but only some. You will be aloud to use magic, but if it exceeds the usual amount, you'll be prohibited from using it. Magic usualy doesn't get much more extreme than a few elemental spells, and even those don't have major effects. Oh, and remember that this is NOT modern. That means no guns or machines.[/COLOR] [COLOR=DarkOliveGreen]Sign-ups-- Name: (last name is not required) Age: anything from 12 to 50 Gender: Appearance: pics or description Personality: how you act, react, and feel.

Personality: Isaac is your basic teenage boy - usualy happy, occasional depression, and/or silence, eager and sometimes adventurous. Magic: defensive magic Bio: Isaac grew up in a town called Introth'Din, a smaller, not well known town. Though even the smallest of the floating cities is expansive. Introth'Din is known for being particulary unstable and lofty. Sometimes, all that connects two platforms is a narrow plank of wood. Despite the fact that they seldom recieve visitors, it has a dock jsut like every other city, jutting into the clouds. Isaac was actualy born blind, but can see with the assistance of a magic-empowered strip of cloth wrapped around his eyes. He has become adept at running along the narrow cross-ways of Introth'Din, and spends a lot of time on the edge of a platform, looking into the distant clouds. Weapons/Equipment: He has no actual weapons, but has built excellent balance living in Introth'Din. As for euipment, he carries an emergy length of rope, like all citizens.[/COLOR] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
