On the world of Raznar, there is a large island by the name of Thorstril.

Thorstril is a barbaric land, the landscape ranges from barren fields, to large oak forests and mountains. But humans still live here. They live in clans, villages, if particularly lucky a city. These are surrounded by wooden walls, the buildings are made from roughly cut stone and hay for roofs and in the case of the warlords home, perhaps a wooden roof. The people do not have much luxury, they sleep on fur. These lands are very similar to the ancient lands of the Vikings or the Anglo Saxons.

And it is just as warlike.

This is a fantasy roleplay, but with a few twists, you can only play as humans, there are no dwarves, or elves etc. The only creatures that exist here are the monsters of myths like giants, goblins, redcaps, dragons, fenbeasts, spirits.

The other difference is magic, magic can be used by only a minority, so I want a larger number of warriors and assassins etc. Those that do use magic are often messengers of God, and the other thing is that the magic cannot just be produced: In this story, magic depends on someone's emotions and/or environments.

I would like the profiles to be like so:

Name:
Age:
Personality:
Bio:
Clan: (Make one up if you like, or join somebody else's clan, if you make your own clan, their way of life is totally up to you)
Clan Status: (Warrior, warlord, blacksmith, farmer, slave, etc.)
Magic: (If they can use it)
Weapons of choice: (The weapons cannot be crossbows etc. They are more likely to be bows, greataxes, greatswords (these would be VERY rare though), axes, shields, swords (rare), spears, daggers, etc.)
Armour: (Leather, chainmail, helmets, NO HEAVY ARMOUR PLATING)

I will put my characters down later.

Edit: Ok, some preset clans:

Asier: These are a mercenary clan, they fight for anyone and everyone, they are nomadic in lifestyle. If not working for anyone, then they will raid other clans. The way they gain respect is through great feats, so no experienced warrior is not with out the tooth of a dragon on his belt or the skulls of some of his victims. The only way to become their warlord is by killing the previous warlord.

Osrik: These are a clan who are rather superstitious, they are very into rituals and ceremonies, for almost any occassion. This is why wizards play a great part in their tribal lifestyle. The live near the forests, where they are closer to nature. To insult a wizard is punishable by death, in fact it has been know for these wizards to become their tribal leaders.

Drasna: The Drasna live in the marshes near the shore of the island. They are a sea faring tribe, but recently they fear the creatures in the swamp and the sea. They have been known to raid other clans in their ships.

Morins: These is a slowly growing kingdom, they are quite rich and warlike, and obsessed with honour and respect to one's tribe and leader. They have grown to despise wizards recently, they live in the barren wastelands. They are mostly herders, but they are not inexperienced warriors, for every man must join a warrior band for 5 years of his life when he comes of age. They guard the boarders against some of the barbarians.

Bashargo: These are one of the barbarian tribes, they are hunter gatherers, and their language is different to many of the other clans, hinting that the other clans were not the original owners of this large island. They do not trust any other clans or groups and will ambush anybody, the hide out in the mountains near the woods.

NEW CLANS: Skarl: The Skarl are one of the richest and most civilised clans, however they have grown tame compared to the other clans and so their warriors are quite inexperienced, however they do attract the attentions of mercenary groups.

hello. two chars will do

name: fefnir
age: 22
personality: calm and cunning, but at the same time shy and dominatable. however, he is very knowledgable for his age, and never backs down in talk, though fighting is different
clan: morin
clan status: hunter
magic: none
weapon of choice: fefnir is not one for massive bloodshed, so chooses a longbow as his weapon. he does carry a knife too, just in case
armour: not much, mostly cloth clothes so as not to make sound whilst hunting. occasioanlly he will don leather armour if needed
bio: fefnir grew up sheltered in the mostly peaceful morin clan, and grew up with thier strict codes of honour and respect. he joined a warrior band at the age of 20 as all youths do, making it now his second year of hunting. his pack respect him as a great archer and tracker, but he will never be a leader. however, he is very observant, and has retained all told to him. he is therefore one of the morins most potent authorities on all things wild
image: less elven, and forget the sword


name: garratus
age: 60's
personality: garratus is a friendless mysterious wanderer, who bears the traits of a bashargo, but wanders away from his clan. he long grey hair is flecked with dirt, and his voice is croaky and tired at all time. he carries always a world weary demeanor, as if he hass seen everything and found nothing he likes
clan: basargo
clan status: unknown, possibly he was cast out
magic: simple fire tricks seem to be his limit
weapon of choice: he carries a wooden staff, possibly trying to imitate the image of great sorcerers of legend. however, it is of little real use other than as a walking aid.
armour: none, just simple white robes and a hood
bio: mostly unknown, he tells no one. he does however have a noticeably broken left hand that hasn't healed properly. possibly an old war wound?
image: white robes


name: kron
age: 31
personality: excitable and hysterical, but at the same time warlike and cruel. however, he does have a seldom seen merciful side. has a long scar on his scalp after an attack from a bear
clan: asier, but his father was a drasna
clan status: warrior
magic: basic stuff, like kindling fires and freezing meat. nothing out of the ordinary
weapon: capable of using most weapons, but prefers a hooked axe
armour: basic chainmail shirt, then leather. never wears a helmet, to show his scar as a badge of courage
bio: kron was born to a drasna father and an asier mother, but his father was killed soon after he was born, so he was raised an asier. kron is a very capable warrior and hunter, but has detested autority from a young age, so sets up his persona as one who despises being ordered and has an almost punk-like mentality. stubborn and steadfast, he is often given menial tasks by his superiors to try and "learn" him. it wont work.

Ok, my characters:

Name: Hafmir
Age: 17
Personality: Calm, honour-bound, not yet use to the blood of war, enjoys dabbling with magic.
Clan: Morins
Status: Prince
Magic: Very basic level of magic, it's not really generalised. It's more sort of making a fire, he can't really use it to fight.
Weapons: A sword
Armour: Leather.
Bio: You shall see when the story begins
Image: But he has brown hair, http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a273/Dan...AnimeBoy_ad.jpg

Age: 42
Personality: Cunning, bloodthirsty, merciless.
Clan: Asier
Status: Warlord
Magic: None
Weapons: An axe and a sword
Armour: Chainmail, covered in dragonscale, heads etc.
Bio: Uktar is the cunning leader of the Asier, he has their highest respect and is famous for his brutality. At the age of 12, he was already entering the Asier blood pit battles and winning spectacularly well. He then at the mere age of 13, killed both of his brothers brutally and when he became of age, he challenged his father for tribe ownership and won. Since then he has killed two of his own sons in these challenges and 20 other contenders to the throne. But the warlord grows tired of these petty battles and dreams of something more, to destroy and subdue all of the clans.
Image: Kaboom can I use the guy on the right on your photo. Like him but dark haired

Name: Raftur
Age: 79
Personality: Wise.
Clan: None
Status: Wizard
Magic: He is a skilled wizard, whose magic is wide and varied.

Image: http://grail.cs.washington.edu/projects/di...andalf-comp.png
Yes it is gandalf, just put a blind fold on him and give him greener robes.

Now we play the waiting game

Soon, I guess we can start:

------------------------------

The night was dark, and terrifying, above the clouds blotted out the stars and the moon, and thunder shook the earth, as if a battle of the Gods was taking place. Many of the villagers in the Morin village of Rekja were hiding under their thatched roofs, huddling around fires and hoping that the final battle had not arrived.

But in the hall was a different atmosphere. On long tables, men danced and drank, boasting of their exploits and the future ahead of them. And the King sat there watching them grinning.

Hafnir sat away from his father with the other warriors, he had just come of age and was sitting with his future comrades. He enjoyed his first beer, but felt slightly discomforted by the old sorceress next to him.

"Don't you want to celebrate?" he asked her, looking at her in a puzzled manner, but the woman said nothing and continued to stare at the doorway. Hafnir slowly looked at the door way and suddenly saw a flash of lightening and then two shadowy figures at the doorway.

The figures entered, it was Lady Greta and her new husband, Lord Traal. Hafnir smiled but heard the sorceress murmer to herself,

"Evil has entered the room..."

Hafnir looked at her once more, what was she on about. The whole room stood and greeted the Lord and Lady, the King pulling out his sword and shouting out

"Welcome, fair guests! Come and feast!! There's plenty for all of us! And the way the weather is, this could be our last feast according to some! So drink and feast as if you're about to drop dead!"

The room cheered and Hafnir sat down and continued to enjoy the food.

------------------------------------

Uktar sat in his tent on his furry throne, he slowly stroked the blade of his axe in front of him, whilst his 4 wives massaged his muscular and scarred upper torso, and stroked his large black beard.

He looked at the doorway, waiting... wouldn't anything exciting happen... the boredom was going to kill him at this rate.

-----------------------------------

In the countryside watching the storm, the old wizard stood... his blind eyes surveyed the area...

"No... the God's are at peace... the world does not end today... but... they tell me that... something is about to happen..."

fefnir took a breath, and ran forwards. holding his soaking cloak about himself, the ran full into the pelting rain, mud splashing over his leather boots. thunder cracked above him, and the heavens roared in anger. fefnir quickly dived through the doorway into the hall, shaking himself off before walking towards a tale.
ducking in and out of peoples groups, dodging servants with food and drink, he sat down with the other warriors to watch the specatcle. after a quick look around, he noticed who was here. the king was merrily sipping beer, the other digniatries were alo enjoying the festivities. a few chairs down from him he noticed the old prophetess. her peering eyes had always spooked him, so fefnir turned away, focusing on the king and grabbing a chikcen leg to chew on. holding it in one hand, and clasping a tankard of beer in the other, he watched the feast unfold.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the storn may be kept outside by walls, but its fury tore through the forests and roads beyond. somewhere, in a craggy cave damp and cold, garratus lay. his horse whined outside, tethered to a tree and tugging to try and break free. however, the old man was asleep in a fur blanket, ignorant of the worries of the world

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

in the asier hall, many warriors were gathered, imiating thier king in toying with weapons and being silent, ever ready for his word. kron sat to the left of the king, leaning against the wall. his fur jerkin was slung casually over a crossed beam, and kron occupied himself by quietly taking sinew and strapping arrowheads to thier shafts. testing each point on his finger, before placing it in his quiver. he has a large hooked axe propped up against the wall beside him, within arms reach.

Hafnir looked at the latest addition to the party, he looked like a decent guy and with his warrior group.

"Hey, are you part of the warrior group I'm about to join?" he asked looking at the the new guy.

The Lord looked around suspiciously at everyone... he was waiting for something.

-----------------------------------

Uktar looked from the corner of his eye at the warrior... he noticed it was Kron... the half Drasna... it was time to test him, or had his Drasna blood tamed him. Uktar without warning threw his axe at kron's head waiting for a reaction, his wives screamed, some of the warriors looked up, but none of them were too suprised.

-----------------
The Old Wizard continued to wander around the wasteland, but he somehow knew where he was going, for he knew this whole island, not through memory but through a much darker presence.

fefnir looked at hafnir. he knew him, he was the prince. turning to him. he said "uh, yeah...i'm fefnir. i guess you'll be hunting with us then" he said, taking a drink of beer
fefnir didn't notice anything strange in the atmosphere of the party.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

seeing a spark out of the corner of his eye, kron looked up. shocked, he jumped back in surprise, just avoiding the axe as it skimmed inches from his face and clattered into the stone wall, before falling harmlessly to the floor with a clang. kron stared in amazement and shock at the axe on the floor. he went down to grab it, noticing that in the shock he had cut his hand with an arrow tip. kron clenched the axe tightly and turned towards the king.

the others now watched. they couldnt tell if kron was simply returning the axe, or was intending to throw it back at his king...
