Years... many years, before the first monarch... there was a small group of drakes. These wingless dragons took in any who felt lost, and recruited anyone discriminated because of tragic disabilities or mutations. But the group- who called themselvesThe ThornsAt that time there was a war raging on... and most of The Thorn members joined to escape from being drafted into the battle. Others are outlaws and revolutionists... but most just want to feel like they belong somewhere.
But all is not as it seems.
The original Thorns are hiding a dark secret... what the purpose of the group is much darker than what they advertise. Behind the stage are criminal masterminds controlling the so called group leaders... yes, the group is a large town fit for many dragons, but it's also a heavily fortified kingdom. Some call it the castle for the unfit, but it's really a prison. A prison for the mind, body, and soul.
Well... there's my slightly depressing intro to the storyline. Here's a few rules then I'll get into character/species information and permissions! Rules:
This is a rp aimed for people over the age of 13! Caution to anyone under the age bracket.
No godmodding or OP characters, this makes it extremely frustrating for everybody
Pain factor exists! If your oc was stabbed, they should act like it... especially if it was in the side or any place with more veins or organs.
Please, PLEASE listen to the character guidelines, this is meant to be an original rp and isn't based on a specific fandom (I might allow some WoF dragons since they're basically just what the common outlook on desert, shadow, forest, etc dragons would look like. But add some original aspects!)
YES I'm fine with crazy mutations on your dragons. and I will accept other dragon-like races (such as Wyvern, Wyrm, Drake, etc.) Just don't make an abomination with three heads, eight legs, four wings, and three tails... keep everything in moderation!
Keep it SFW... blood and gore is okay though!
If you are confused by anything and want to ask me permission for something- feel free to PM me! I'm pretty loose on rules and will list some of the mutations allowed... just PM me with your character info (or a link to your character) and I may accept or decline it! (Most likely, I'll accept them)
Mutations! Here are some of the mutations available- these are mainly ideas
Conjoined twins (merged at hip, talon, ect.)
Conjoined twins (Two-headed)
Sirenomelia (where the hind legs are conjoined)
Extra limbs (functional or not, the more pairs of limbs, the less functional they are)
Polycaudal (split tail)
Extreme Polycaudal (double tails)
Extra pair of wings
Wingless (for dragons)
Again, these are just ideas- and you aren't limited to these mutations!
Races and Species You may use basically any type of dragon as long as it's generic... or you may use ideas from fandoms. Character Species Rules
I will allow each person to have 1 character based on a fandom (an OC, you can't use Toothless from HTTYD or Tsunami from Wings of Fire)
You may take a dragon species from mythology, it's highly recommended, just don't show up with The Hobbit's Smaug or Surtur's pet from Ragnarok. Use ocs!
You are allowed to have up to five characters! Since I'm aiming for this rp to consist of a small group of about four to five people.
No using species with OP attributes (no invincibility... immortality with a temporary death is fine as long as there's not super fast healing)
Abilities are fine as long as they're not over-powered.
Also, I'll accept humans! They can have magical abilities (reasonably powerful, not op) or odd mutations also! And most (if not all) can understand dragons since there's a shared language for intelligent races. They may also be mythical, such as faun, centaur, werewolf, etc.
Setting: I wanted to add a setting, so the layout isn't so confusing...
The Kingdoms are the typical 'continent riddled with different habitats' concept, but the kingdom is made mostly of forests, mountainous regions, cliffs, and tundra, as well as a searing desert to the South. The continent is ruled by one ruler, King Argantus, who's palace lays in the middle of the Kingdoms and rests atop a hill in a small clearing with trees all around. The Thorns' hideout stands in a large cavern in the mountains, hidden among a dark passageway that leads up to it. There are shadows and darkness everywhere, but the city is lit with lamps and soft blue lights, making the cavern seem welcoming where the outside is dark and foreboding.
The Monarchs rose once the First War ended, but after about two hundred years of the monarchy existing, the residents of the kingdoms are restless and ready to move on from the family's monarch. While the citizens are restless, The Thorns are preparing to attack and take over, spreading stories of how much better they'd make the lands, how the disable and mutated would be welcomed and loved- but they really aim to destroy the King... as some sort of twisted family vendetta.
PM me if you'd like to join! And if you have any suggestions or questions.
The malicious Thorn leader stood on a ledge in the massive cave walls. He looked merely like a speck of dust if one was to try to spot him from the ground or opposing side. Mirage flicked his tail, the tip scraped on stone as he looked down into the dark village below. He was waiting for someone...
Mirage huffed. "Yeah, I get it. You're fine here." He laid down on the stone ledge. "I kind of hate how large the village is becoming... it was way smaller when it was built." He shifted his black wings to a more comfortable position.
Knave glided down from where he was coming into the cave. He landed next to Amber and looked up at Mirage, they were far and he could barely spot the leader. "Ugh, you shouldn't bother with that Dark Artist, he's rude." Knave huffed, trotting beside Amber.
"Well then sorry for asking." The tall dragon smiled. "I'm sorry, but would I be able to bother you for some food? The plains where I hunt are fresh out of prey." Knave looked down at Amber, his blue eyes glittering in happiness.
(It's fine, my internet at home is bad also) Mirage watched as a few hunters flew out of the cavern. "I wonder how long it'd be for the townspeople to turn on each other if we starved them." He thought aloud, looking back at Ace.
