    Game currently in a halt for the foreseeable future because RL is evil. Sorry for the bother.
    Game is dead, probably forever. If you wanna play, I suggest heading over to Scribble Hub's Adventurer's Guild and enjoy the game I'm not GMing for once! \(^^)/

    The Adventurer's Guild is a medi-fantasy roleplay set in the world of Edhellen. The players will be members of the guild that resides within the country of Ternus, specifically within the Town of Nagrand. The game revolves around completing quests that refresh weekly and just interacting with other players in the Tavern.

    Please do make sure to read the first posts of each thread before posting in them, as they'll explain how said thread is supposed to work.

    As for how to play the game, this is a quick summary:
    1. Register your character in this thread.
    2. Put your character's information in your signature once it's been approved by a staff member.
    3. Go to the Quest Board and pick a quest.
    4. Write how you cleared the Quest in the Receptionist's Desk.
    5. Go to the Tavern, talk to other players and have fun~
    Steps 3 and 5 are easily interchangeable btw, but please stay with me as I explain the game a bit more in-depth~
    -------------------------------------------------------
    Setting:

    The game's setting is on a medi-fantasy world that was once ruled by tyrant and oppressive dragons, the other races joined themselves together in a big alliance to fight against them and nearly exterminated all dragons, nowadays only 7 of them remain.

    In the meanwhile, a big human-supremacist Empire rose to power, the Holy Empire of Men, as they started conquering nearby countries and either exterminating or slaving all other races, the Beastmen Alliance was formed to face off against them. Ever since then, they've been in a big war that greatly weakened both superpowers, which allowed other smaller countries to rebel against the Empire and get their freedom.

    Ternus is one of those countries, we're still in a more or less friendly relationship with the Empire, but we're no longer part of them. Most of the country also discriminates against non-humans, but the Adventurer's Guild in particular does not.

    Feel free to check the Timeline in our Wiki for more details, but that's the gist of it.
    -------------------------------------------------
    Rules and Guidelines:
    1. When creating your character, please mind the setting. You have plenty of freedom in what your character's background is or what they're able to do, but please understand it's a medi-fantasy setting.
      • Don't make a character that can create or replicate modern technology nor make a super futuristic android that can shoot lasers... Rather, don't even make a character with guns.
      • You can make a character that came from a modern setting though, just make sure they are unable to replicate modern technology. (for example, a high school student getting thrown in the fantasy world is fine... An adult with PHD in robotics is not.)
    2. The expected Power Level is pretty low, so keep that in mind when making your character. A basic reference is that your character shouldn't be able to come out unscathed of a fight if they're surrounded by 5 goblins. This isn't a strict enforcement, but try keeping your character close to this guideline.
      • Also, on the upper end, try to never make your character strong enough to destroy a whole town on your own... If this seems like too strict, keep in mind that the bigger the power level of the players, the harder it is for the staff to make content that can be interesting for both older and new players... It's a bit hard to make people care about an invading orc army if a single player can destroy the whole world, right?

        So remember to limit your own character's growth in order to keep the game healthy and to let everyone have fun while playing~
    3. Remember to be respectful to other players and try to not stir too much trouble, people can get pretty invested in their roleplay characters and you should keep in mind there is a person in the other side of the screen when interacting with them.
    -----------------------------------------
    Character Creation:

    While not strictly enforced, the idea of a newbie adventurer would be someone that has some battle knowledge to fend off for themselves, but is still mostly inexperienced... Basically, someone that isn't completely useless in a fight, but worse than a veteran mercenary.

    So like... Avoid making the supreme master of arms that is able to use all weapons known to man, already has a full plate armor, a unicorn, a zweihander, a greatbow, a greatshield, a poleaxe, a longsword and also knowns how to craft, repair and enchant their own items.

    You don't need to start with 0 coins either, but try to avoid making your character have silver coins with them or anything bigger than that... Let's try dealing only with low amounts of copper for now.

    Also, please follow this template when making your character:

    Name:
    Gender:
    Race:
    Age:
    Class:
    Rank: E
    Points: 0
    Put a rough description here.
    Weapons:
    Armors:
    Coins:
    Skill A: Description goes here
    List of a bunch of stuff
    Blablabla


    Rank shows how much trust the guild has on you and is a generally simple way of more or less assessing your power level, I'll go further into it in the Quest Board.

    Points are obtained by completing quests. I'll explain its details in the Quest Board, but just understand that those measure how many quests you cleared. They're also necessary for ranking up.

    For the appearance, if you can provide an image, it's better than having it as a description. In case you do have an image, you can just put it at the start of the template.

    Class is a pretty broad term for lack of better word, just choose something that more or less reflects what your character is able to do.

    Inventory should have the stuff you're carrying with you on a day-to-day basis, while storage should have the stuff you leave in your inn room or house or your semi-permanent camp in the middle of the plains.

    Skills are somewhat optional, there is no need to put any in particular if you're a warrior without any form of Magic or Ki arts, but it would be good in case you're a mage to list your spells and the like.

    Backstory is completely optional, but it's a nice touch to further develop your character.
    ----------------------------
    Currencies:

    Ternus and most other countries use the same currency system and it's all pretty straight-forward.

    10 Small Copper Coins = 1 Large Copper Coin
    100 Large Copper Coins = 1 Silver Coin
    100 Silver Coins = 1 Gold Coin
    100 Gold Coins = 1 Platinum Coin

    To have a rough idea of how much each coin is worth, this is a rough price of goods that you can find in the country. The guild doesn't sell pretty much anything aside from food and drinks in the tavern, but you can buy from merchants in the town as you please.

    Meal - 5-25 Small Copper Coins
    Lodgings - 15-50 Small Copper Coins
    Low Quality Potions - 30-80 Large Copper Coins
    Mid Quality Potions - 2-7 Silver Coins
    High Quality Potions - 25-500 Silver Coins
    Wooden/Leather Tools - 25-75 Small Copper Coins
    Second-hand Commoner Clothing - 25-75 Small Copper Coins
    Iron Tools - 10-25 Large Copper Coins
    Steel Tools - 30-50 Large Copper Coins
    Bows - 15-40 Large Copper Coins
    Bronze Weapons - 5-12 Large Copper Coins
    Iron Weapons - 20-50 Large Copper Coins
    Steel Weapons - 60-100 Large Copper Coins
    Magical Weapons - 10+ Silver Coins
    Dungeoneering Kit - 30-75 Large Copper Coins

    Those are all rough values and you should be able to negotiate with merchants to maybe get discounts and the like, but assume these are the market values of those goods.

    If you wish to craft your own items instead, please make sure to check our page for Enchanting at the very least, so as to understand why magical gear is so expensive.
    ----------------------------
    Maps:

    The following are the maps of different regions of the world that you can explore. There are already some set landmarks in the maps that you can explore, but those are by no means the only important places in them. Feel free to find more things and we should update the map from time to time to reflect that.

    In fact, many of the nearby countries are actually blank slates to give you the freedom to set things of those places more freely.

    The World Map should have the rough landmarks of each country, but please check the specific maps for proper details~

    ---------------------------------------------
    Lore, Deities, Cameos and what not:

    If you're old to NUF's RP community, you might have seen that we have tried to make a bunch of cameos of the old RPs that existed here in the last few years... You don't need to have played any of the games to play AG though.

    The important thing to keep in mind when talking about Lore though, is that you are free to set new lore as you see fit, please please pleaaaase don't feel afraid to set new Lore to the game. If it's something reaaally major, it would be nice if you contacted the staff members before you made it, but you don't need to worry about it if you are making minor things.

    We by no means expect you to read all previous reports before trying to make your own, so some inconsistencies between what you make and what other players made are bound to happen. Don't worry too much about it and just remember to have fun while you're making your own story, that's the whole point of a roleplay after all~

    If you wish to try being more consistent though, the wiki is there to help you, so do make sure to check it out~

    Some mildly important lore things are the Deities page and the Dungeons page I guess, I'd recommend looking them over if you can~
    ----------------------------------------------
    How does the flow of time work?

    Something you might realize as you play the game, is that the flow of time is not exactly something fixed... Someone might go and do one quest and write about how they spent a whole month within it, but at the same time they were at the tavern every single day talking to others, playing around, having fun and all... This might seem quite confusing and... Well, it is confusing, so what you should do is not worry too much about it.

    As a rule of thumb, try thinking that 1 in-game week roughly equals to about 1 week IRL. This should more or less give a sense of progression, passage of seasons and time flowing, but it's not a strict schedule or anything.
    ----------------------------------------------
    That's the gist of it, please feel free to ask any questions or to check the wiki for more details, we worked hard to try setting a fair amount of things

    For reference, here are the staff members that are currently running the game, feel free to poke us for any question you might have~

    Name: May
    Gender: female
    Race: human
    Age: 18
    Class: swordsman
    Rank: E
    Points: 0
    A 5'6" girl with brown hair (WIP)
    Weapons: Rusty sword
    Armors: double layered wool shirt and dress
    A leather water pouch (8 Oz)
    6 Oz of dried meat
    Coins: 0
    Slash
    Slashes across with a pointed blade
    A rusty dagger
    2x 10in cloths
    1x set of wool clothes (old)
    May had always been an idealistic person growing up, thinking of growing up in the village she was born in and dying of old age in it.

    But one day she saw the local bois trashed her older brother up, though for good reason since he had pushed a random toddler to the ground but that's wheen she somehow realized that strength makes right.

    so, in order to learn how to become stronger she started spying on the local village guard training from the age of 10.

    At the age of 16, while practicing her slash she accidentally let go of her wooden branch, letting it sail through the air and knocking out the corrupt tax collector who had gone to her houses backyard to see if anyone was home.

    She then looted the tax collector and ran away with his cheap ass sword and dagger and some of the money he had on him.

    The tax collector of course had guards, and she was chased out of the empire of men whereas she finally found the adventurers guild after 2 years of travel and searching because she did not know how to read maps.

    The tax collector had become a laughingstock by then, and was the butt of many jokes causing him to not send people after the girl who caused this because his rivals are always watching to make him a larger joke.

    @AliceShiki Silver being only thing able to hold enchantments and at the same time gold and platinum being more valuable doesnt make much sense... Gold had value because its pretty irl. But when humans find use that only it could fill, its price could only sky rocket. Why not make gold and platinum able to hold stronger enchantment?

    ((Ah, I actually forgot to make this edit, Way and Quae already pointed it out to me before... T.T

    Basically the idea would be that Silver is good enough and not as hard to find, so it would be used for pretty much any enchantment because... Who would use gold when silver works just fine?

    But yeah, I'll make this edit soon~))

    And well, while the other metals COULD be better ((Like how gold circuits exist, etc etc)
    Silver should be fine enough unless you are doing some really well-made masterwork/ magnum opus of a magic item xd

    *looks through the registration paper for a while*
    *arranges it neatly and puts it back on the counter*

    Seems like you had a troubling background, but hopefully things will be better for you now~ *smiles*

    Everything is in order, so welcome to the guild, May-chan.

    *takes a knife and quickly scratches something in a piece of wood*
    *hands you a wooden badge with the guild's symbol in it*

    This is your guild badge, it will work as your identification, and I just put your name in its back. Please make sure to take proper care of it, as you'll have to pay for a new one in case you lose it~

    Welcome aboard, you're ready to take quests already, be sure to be careful out there~ *bows*

    ((You made it so fast! xD

    You don't need to name the skill as "Skill A" btw, that was just an example... >.>

    Oh, and remember to put the identification in your signature, usual stuff~))

    Sephiroth Profile [Malkuth]
    Meaning: Kingship
    Specialty: ???
    A cute young girl that only recently became an adult. As a result, she is still rather pure and naive when it comes to certain matters. Perhaps because of this youth, she still possesses that childlike sense of justice and aspires to make the world a better place. While somewhat vulnerable to external influence because of her young age, Elaine retains some of the positive qualities that children tend to have; she instinctively knows good from bad, and has quite a bit of creativity when it comes to finding solutions. When not out on journeys, she can be found hanging around the quests board or the counter with fellow Sephiroth, or hanging out at a certain orphanage. Her favourite weapon is the rapier, as it’s range and attacking style fits very well with her own fighting style, lunging in and out to deal quick thrusts with the pointy blade. With training since young, she has achieved a decent form of footwork when it comes to swordplay and thus can be considered an okay fighter. Although she does do worrying things sometimes, and say some worrying stuff, Elaine is completely human. Pure-blooded human. You don’t have to worry about her suddenly turning into some massive monster and snapping you in half. Probably.
    Hiya! I’m Elaine! Aspiring adventurer here, at your service! I hope we have a nice trip together, and become friends by the end of it! Of course, I’m not as strong as Alina, but I should be able to deal with goblins and the like easily! Though, if something stronger shows up, you should ditch me and escape first, okay?

    Hmm? You want to know more about myself? Okay! It’s not very exciting, but I will tell you anyway! My favourite hobbies are to eat sweets, sleep in the sunshine, and climb trees! I use a rapier to fight, and I keep a wolf cub as a pet! Maybe I’ll bring it with me when it’s older~

    I don’t know much about politics, profiles, and stuff like that...But no problem! As Alina always said, you gotta find the right person for the right job! I’ll be out there fighting to protect the weak, to save those who are unable to fend for themselves, and someone else will handle the other matters!

    So, don’t worry! No matter what kind of mess you get yourself into, I’ll get you out of it! Just don’t get yourself killed, and it’ll be alright! After all, when there’s life, there’s rope---I mean, hope!

    *reads through the registration carefully*

    You seem like a pretty good person Elaine-san, be careful to not be taken advantage of, alright?

    *starts using a knife to scribble in a piece of wood while talking*
    *gives you a wooden badge with the guild's symbol in it*

    Welcome to the guild, this is your identification badge! Be careful to not lose it or you'll have to pay a fee to get a new one. Your name is written in its back, so take good care of it~

    You're all ready to go now, feel free to take one of the quests currently available~

    And... Be careful with your own life, alright? It's important to take care of oneselves~ *smiles*

    ((Remember to put your information in the sig and stuff! ^^)/))

    I'll tell you when I know myself....
    Rotten Wooden Sword
    Leather Tunic
    Leather Pants
    <Unbelievable Luck> Grants great luck to the host, almost ungodly amounts of it.
    <Idiocy> The host can't tell left from right.
    <Amnesia> The host can't remember their past. All future memories are fine. There's probably a way to cure this.
    <Swordsmanship> The host can wield a sword...somewhat well. Can be upgraded.
    <Normal Body> The host has a normal amount of strength in their body. Can be upgraded.
    <Jokester> The host likes to crack jokes too much. Someone please slap him.
    <Blessed by the Prankster Goddess> Trouble follows the host wherever he goes.
    Home? Inn? I don't even have money!
    Unsei was summoned by the Prankster Goddess for her amusement. After Unsei tried to have a normal conversation, however, the Goddess quickly wiped his memories and sent him directly to the Adventurer's Guild without telling him anything.

    --Will edit as memories become unlocked.
