Recalled To Life: A Forgotten Realms Multifandom RP

Soooo, kiddies... ever love a character so much, you just want to KILL THEM? Here's your chance... with Recalled To Life.

What is a God, but a petulant child? A petulant child with phenomenal power?

They have power, yet they lust for more. What better way to gain it, than by taking it from others?

This blindingly simple reasoning was what sparked the Great Deitic War, a conflict that, while short in duration, was far-reaching in consequences. Deities from every corner and aspect of reality were injured, weakened beyond belief. All but the gods of Abeir-Toril, who, in heeding the god Tyr's advice, had successfully avoided involvement in this ruinous escapade. For the duration of the war, at least...

Let it never be said that a mortal cannot challenge the gods, for, in their weakened state, these foolish and petty deities could not manage the stronger-willed spirits of the dead whom they encountered. And so, they went to the gods of the Realms, whom they had cursed and belittled for their noninvolvement, and struck a deal: Tyr, their savior, would take responsibility for their strong-willed dead. He did so on a single condition: that he be able to test them as he saw fit, to measure their true colors, and where their final destination ought be.

The continent of Faerun, diverse and populous as it was, was chosen as the testing grounds. Here, Tyr would return these heroes and villains to life, and monitor their habits and interactions. See what sort of people these fallen are. Among them is you.

Your life is over. Your life has just begun.

Welcome to the Realms.

Recalled To Life: A Forgotten Realms Multifandom RP

Play a deceased mortal, or a god watching their... investment. Hack and slash through dungeons, or become embroiled in political intrigue. Or do it all. Here's your opportunity.

Recalled To Life takes place on the continent of Faerun, in the Forgotten Realms campaign setting for Dungeons & Dragons (property of Wizards of the Coast/Hasbro).


The game proper opens Sunday, April 15th, at 23:59.

Let's do this, people.

Is this going to be a freeform game, or will we have to figure out how to jam a character into a standardized stat block/character sheet in order to play?

Freeform! This is directed at roleplayers of every sort, many of whom likely have little-to-no experience with Forgotten Realms, or D&D in general. It wouldn't be practical, much less fun, to have players such as that figure out the character sheet and whatnot.

Though, if you WANT to make a character sheet, we'd be amused to see it. I know I will inevitably make some...

Okay, cool. If I were to import a character from another D&D game, what sort of power level are we looking at for non-divine characters?

At the moment, I'm thinking of bringing in a gnoll war-priest that I played for a campaign that died off a while back. I'd need to decide on how far her 'career' went, before her death. (This isn't a final decision, though. At the moment, the other major contender is from Zelaznys' Amber series.)

Okay, this statement has shown me I need to refine the blurb a bit. Importing one of your own characters is not really in-bounds. An established, fictional character is really what we would like you to go for. Any genre, any format is fine; we just have something of an aversion to original characters in the online setting (else, I would have already brought in my beloved Gnome Warlock Cheebo, from a campaign that is on "indefinite hiatus").

I am very much intrigued by your other idea, though, as I have heard great things about Amber.

Wait, actually, did you mean a character from the series of novels, or did you mean a character of your creation from the roleplaying system?

Fair enough. It sounds like you're trying to make a game inspired by the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen?

Brainstorming some more:
* I don't think I can pull off Corwin of Amber (main character of the first quintet) but I'm going to skim a few of the books - I might be wrong, or one of his siblings might make a better PC.
* Another option is finding a paragon of scientific rationalism, from my store of SF. Drop 'em into a fantasy world and see what happens.
* Someone from Shakespeare, not sure who.

In a vague way. I'm not really sure what inspired it; just an idea that came to me, rather out of the blue.

Oh dear lord, not the Puck.

All excellent ideas, though. To give you an idea of the shape the game is taking thusfar... the accepted characters currently include one Norse deity, one video game antagonist, and two anime characters, with likely applicants drawing from american comics, and a lot of horror. I think one guy mentioned a god from Lovecraft's Great Old Ones...

That sort of character, of course, would have to be unreasonably well-written-for...
