Dragons of Avendar: War or peace OOC

Recommended Posts

Questions will be listed here with answers.

 

Three people are allowed in, Sky asked to be apart of this so we are looking for two more. 

 

Lore and mythos of Avendar will also be placed here, along with pronunciation of the kingdoms, their capital cities, and the style of their clothing/ houses. 

 

If you want to have more then one character, vassles or assistants are needed for the chosen ones. Ruling parties will also accompany the chosen ones (prince/princess etc.) To work better with the ones who will decide conflict or peace.

Lands:

 

An-Nok (Ann-Knock) has a Japanese feudal era style of clothing, weaponry and culture with houses built for weather and the main product of trade and food is rice and wool.  Capital is Qi-Ni (keen-Nye) and ruled by a matriarch called Empress and woman are seen equal to the men and are trained for combat, marketing and trade exports.

 

 

Sash-Har (said like it's spelled) has silk and spice exports, clothing similar to ancient Egyptian and buildings made of stucco and clay. Food is mostly meat and veggies. Their fighting style and weaponry is like a mixture of Egyptian and Persian. Lead by a sultan, it's common practice to have a harem of two to three women, and women are barred from learning combat skills.

 

 

 

Havana has a semi nomadic people ruled by cheiftens that come together thrice a year to discuss trade and supply routes. This is mostly for the inland people, but the coastline is lined with large cities and governed by Mayors. They have more advanced weaponry, and more magical technology than the isolated lands due to the Wizard city being located by the neutral mountain range. The weapons are of cannons, small firearms and crossbows. They are the top clothing manufacturers and wear loose yet comfortable clothing dyed multiple patterns and colors, furs and skins during the winter. Similar to a medieval to Victorian era type in the citys and high trade towns. 

 

 

 

Shahala (said like Valhalla with a Shh sound in the beginning) are a similar to the Pacific islander people in culture and style. Their main export is fish, exotic fruit and intricate weave work on tapestries, rugs, blankets among other things.  Ran by a high chief similar to a King. 

 

 

Wizard city- also called Neutral City located in between the dragon back ridge and the neutral mountain range and cut off from the plains by the Drago Ravine it is a true zone of equal opportunity for all who seek knowledge and skill. Here they are the most advanced magically, are able to sustain themselves. They are run by the council of the Four Wizards, along with the representative of each of the four nations resulting in eight total members of the council. They have a democratic system along with policies and laws like it is it's own nation entirely. 

 

------

 

Unknown lands: lands marked as unknown or as ? are unexplored and probably hostile lands beyond the nations of Avadon. Expeditions to the unknown lands often went silent or disappeared entirely.  Although, it is rumored the wizards has seen what lays beyond but they keep their secrets in their old bones to the grave, or perhaps.... more worthy ones come....

 

 

Fauna and flora: like anyplace around the world there are species that are common in a majority of areas and those native to specific regions. Avadon has the typical creatures and a variety of the more unique ones. I will list the more unique ones here.

 

An-nok: a land of mountains and harsh winters. 

Fauna~

    Yetis- humanoid creatures that are more ape like and covered in thick white fur, highly territorial and aggressive and are known to cause avalanches or cave-ins in the mines. Normally walk like a gorilla, although can be as tall as a man. 

    Saber Wolves- massive wolves with short tails, huge paws and retractable claws and two razor sharp fangs, they are the apex predators of the northern mountains. Capable of scaling icey rock cliffs, traveling long distances. They are rarely alone, living in packs of five to eight. Highly intelligent, packs often forming alliances or a temporarily truce when prey is scarce or abundant.

    Blue Gazelle- a antelope creature that often are domesticated to be pack animals, are more reliable than a horse, climb like a goat, and fiercely loyal to the person who they bond with. A main mode of transportation between the villages of An-nok. It's horns are straight and black, fur is white with a blue hue to it. 

 

Flora~

     Dragon lilly- a extremely rare flower that grows in deep caves and crevices near rare mineral and metal deposits. They glow a soft yellow light in the darkness and smell like sulfur, however the petals turn silver in sunlight and can be used to boost magic if brewed in tea. The roots are thick and strong, and are use to make reinforced steel and create a stripped pattern when forged into blades that can cut through an anvil like a hot knife through butter.

    Pine berries- grows on a pine shrub in the dead of winter, they look like small pinecones and have a honey nutty flavor to them, often gathered for pies and sweet treats during festivals.

    Yukiona plant- grows in the shape of a sleeping woman, this plant has sharp barbs on it's branches and thistle leaves that look like it's covered in frost. The leaves can be used for open wounds if the white on the leaves is boiled off to help heal and prevent infection. If eaten raw it is a powerful hallucinogen that makes the consumer believe they are on fire while dropping their core temperature and has a almost euphoric effect on men. The white blossoms are fragrant and often gathered to make expensive perfume.

 

Shahala: a warm lush set of islands in the southern ocean.

 

Fauna~

     Monitor lizard- a medium size mount that can swim easily and run fast on land. Often in hues of green and blue with colorful coral like patterns on the males and more muted sandy tones on the females. They look like large iguanas. They can be trained to take messages, help push fish into nets and have a demeanor similar to dogs.  

       Hanalo bird- a beautiful bird that's abundant in Shahala that come in a variety of colors. The feathers are often used as high end quills, make accurate darts and arrows in addition to beautiful feathered jewelry and headdresses the locals wear. The meat is quite tasty and sweet. Similar to the macaw in size and sound.

       Zao-tzu- (sao-tsu) large electric eel dragons that lives along the trenches and drop offs around the island facing to open sea. Posses razor sharp fangs and a body capable of coiling around a small fishing boat and crushing it to splinters, the skull of the largest of these dragons is the high Chief's prized possession decorating the entrance to his hut. Killing one of these electric water dragons is a feat given to only the mightiest of warriors, and a form of right of passage. One kill can feed a small island and the meat tastes similar to salmon and sushi depending on the age and part of the beast it's taken from.

 

Flora~

    Hakii nuts- large oblong nuts that grow in the palm trees with a tough outer shell and a soft yellow center cavity filled with sweet water. The inside can be roasted like a chunk of meat before ground and placed on dishes for a unique floral and nutty flavor. When mixed in curry the same inside gives it a spicy flavor when mixed with onions.

    Shalla Lilly (or Chief lilly)- a pale aquamarine colored plant with deep cobalt blue speckles on the petals. It's strong smell is like sunshine, sand and a upcoming storm. The petals are often dried and rolled into beads for special jewelry, or made and mixed other musks for a unique perfume the men of the mainland has taken a liking to.

    Hakii leaves- brod and sturdy leaves as hard as the nut when plucked and laid out to dry. The uses are for baskets, hut roofs, stripped and woven into nets, small sails and shelters. If soaked in freshwater before drying they are soft and can be used as ponchos, blankets, hats and even dresses. 

 

 

Sash-Har: a largely desert climate with scorching sands and small oasis scattered about.

Fauna~

     Coigon- the Coin dragon (ones that are larger are called Vault or Bank dragons) are trained from the day it's hatched the Coin dragon (Coigon for short) are native and bred in Sash-Har and imprints on the one who hatched it so when presented the treasure, it lets only it's imprinted one, or if given a signal and a treat by it's owner, the person it's owner also entrusted their treasure too. It's often paired male keeper to female Coigon and vice versa. The colors of money, gold, silver, copper, bronze and the precious stones. So they can hide effectively in with coins and jewelry. They are common around the mainland, mostly in Havana and Sash-Har due to merchant trade having multiple and they multiply like rabbits. They have four small limbs and tiny wings, often spit small but very hot flames and retractable needle like serrated teeth. They enjoy rock candy, chocolate coins, and candied nuts as treats but mostly eat bits of chicken or pork. Anything sweet or salty they enjoy. Smallest is the size of a baby's fist, largest the size of a large house cat.

     Sand Wyrm- a large serpentine creature capable of eating a whole camel that hides along the hottest ridges of sand. They are often the color of the red sand. They strangle their prey, although ones that live in the black sands of the southern desert have hoods that unfurl when approached and deadly venom due to the volcanic wasteland they dwell in.

     Jackkhi hound: large thin and built for speed these white hounds have thick black paws made for sand. They are lanky like greyhounds, but slightly smaller than horses they are only able to carry a small light human on their backs. Usually one would see a team of them pulling a sand sled for deliveries. They are omnivores and very social animals, making it impossible to own only one. Their calls are an erie scream earning them the nickname the screaming ghost. Able to track through sand, can find freshwater just by smell, and hear creatures beneath the sand in their long pointed ears they are the companions any traveler has when traversing the desert.

 

Flora~

   Orsi fruit: (or-sigh) a sickly yellow looking spiny fruit that, when skinned, has a sweet grainy texture similar to pineapple. Often smoked, juiced, dried, or grilled this fruit has the ability to quench one's thirst in the desert. 

     Heybi flower: a black and white lilly that grows at freshwater ponds or Oasis, often on a lily pad. The roots give the water a sweet almost lemon flavor and are often cut, dried and ground to mix with chamomile for a relaxing tea. The flowers themselves are important food for silkworms and can be used to make colors of dyes more vibrant.

     Web trap: a completely white plant with the appearance of a Venus fly trap, only covered in spider webs. The smell gives off a unique perfume of roasting meat. The plant is carnivorous and eats mostly insects, small animals and unfortunately some coigons lost their lives to a plant. Luckily these only grow around pools of water that has soured and is unsafe to drink from.

omg that's so fun yess npcs 👀 cant wait to see the sheets !! ty for the info : D 

 

just a quick question about the dragon forms -- would you be okay with more non-conventional dragons (like wyverns/leviathans/eastern dragons)? i kind of want mine to have feathers if thats okay : D i was thinking of something similar to DC's radiant angel dragons!

Non conventional Dragons that are best suited for their environment. Mine is Air, he could have feathers, but he's best suited for aerodynamics and aerial combat then aesthetics.

 

Edit: You guys can make the sheets for the royalty accompaniment they're not NPC's exactly they are just there to help development for the main four and perhaps try to persuade for war or peace depending on their standing.

as per what we discussed in dms, here's a sheet for my character and an accompanying royal !! lmk if anything needs to be changed : D 

 

Name: Lyria de Vedici

Age: 18

Domain: Earth

Human looks: reference Lyria is 154cm (5'0). On her neck, her markings start, so you can see small petals across the sides. Her hair is actually very long (ground level), but she keeps it tied up very tightly, so it only comes to lower back. 

Dragon looks: reference She's a flightless wyrm with petal markings, with a large, flat tail that can create landslides. Although the "petals" on her back look soft, they're actually quite sturdy and spiky for protection (like a hedgehog). She's more light purple than pink -- like lavender. 

Marking(s): She has wisteria-like patterns that scatter across her back. She wears open-back outfits to show the markings, kind of like this

Chosen powers: Earth manipulation, rockslides 

Offence Power (Avalon): Nature magic (Can grow vines/dangerous plants)

Personality: Resourceful and polite, but distrustful and secretive. Won't go out of her way to help others, but cares heavily for the people important to her. Has many thoughts, but will be careful about what she shares. Secretly anxious about everything. 

Non-magic weapons: Her favourite weapon is a bow that was specially made for her which she brings along on long excursions/migrations, although when travelling into the cities she will instead have small pistols for ease of access. 

Other: She likes horseback riding, arrow practice, and being out in nature -- anything to keep her busy. She plays a variety of string instruments for entertainment and while on the road. She has a lovely singing voice, but will never sing to anyone. She has a lot of trouble falling asleep, and is always up very early. Her hair is her most beloved thing, so she will often decorate it with flowers or try new hairstyles. Struggles with reading. 

 

Name: Damon

Age: 22

Human looks: reference Damon is 181cm (5'9"). Without his glasses, he is absolutely blind. 

Personality: A very dominant and paranoid young prince who feels a lot of pressure to be a perfect royal. Has known Lyria since she was born, and grew up with her. Only wants her to be safe. Rude towards strangers and distrustful of Lyria's ability to manage herself, he takes it upon himself to warn others against endangering her. Often considers himself the smartest person in the room. 

Non-magic weapons: Quite knowledgeable in cannon making and firearm preparation. Carries around a rather alarmingly long rifle. 

Other: Follows Lyria almost everywhere. In his spare time, he likes to read, and is actually quite educated -- but also very arrogant about it. Has also written a couple documents on the Havana lifestyle and culture, and war technology and strategy. Well-connected in the cities due to his success in writing books. Doesn't think Lyria should read anything beyond her "level".

got two sheets ready! one for my lad and his tired buddy.

 

Name: Favian Leota

Age: 19

Domain: Water

Human looks: [Ref]

Favian stands at around 5'8" (177cm) tall. He's normally dressed refined with tidy, professional clothing, however his insistence of getting his hands dirty often lead to him ending the day covered in mud and grime. His ponytail reaches down to his mid back and his hair reaches a few inches lower when let down. Perhaps it's due to the time he spends at the beach, a side effect of his transformation, or just an odd choice of cologne, but Favian has the distinct scent of the open sea. 

Dragon looks: [Ref]

A titanic lindwyrm that makes up for being flightless with his incredible swimming abilities. Due to his size and structure, Favian struggles to move when on land. He is capable of "gliding" with his wings, but they're built more for making sharp turns when underwater. When in the dark, markings all along Favian's body glow a light blue.

Marking(s): Many small blue dots line up and down the sides and back of Favian's body. The markings are similar in arrangement to that of many bio luminescent creatures. Like in his dragon form, these markings glow in the dark.

Chosen powers: Breathing underwater, bio luminescence

Offence Power: Ice Breath

Personality: Favian's dignified appearance may make him look refined at first glance, but that's nothing more than a setup made by his peers and friends to make him more presentable. The moment Favian opens his mouth it's completely clear that he's far more friendly and talkative then expected. Very talkative. Loves both receiving and giving attention. Has a bad habit of offering his help to anyone, including strangers he's just met.

Non-magic weapons: Uses a variety of spears ranging from tridents to throwing spears

Other: Tends to pick up and excel at hobbies wherever he he goes. Knows how to catch or forage for food then cook it up into an excellent meal he can happily share with friends and random strangers who look peckish. Good with plants. Great at dancing both for fun and professionally. Tried to get into reading but was banned from buying books after he tried eating a book about different kinds of native fruits.

 

Name: "Velvet"

Age: 25

Human looks: [Ref]

Velvet is short standing at a little under 5'1" (155cm). Loves to wear cute, form-fitting clothing. Has many old scars hidden underneath her clothes.

Personality: Velvet is curt and methodical. She doesn't see a point in having a conversation when she can just say a few words or none at all, especially if she can use her axe to solve the issue instead. Dislikes her birth name and refuses to respond to it, opting instead to use the nickname "Velvet". Does her best to keep her ward, Favian, from getting into trouble (which is often). Not easily impressed.

Non-magic weapons: While she's trained in several hand-armed weapons, her tool of choice is a double-headed war axe  that she carries with ease.

Other: Is completely self-sufficient meaning that she knows how to hunt, cook, clean, gather resources, build shelters, budget, etc. Genuinely enjoys fighting. Has a tendency to express affection through gifts. Takes immense pleasure of running Favian through training regimes until he gets too tired to continue. Carries her battle axe everywhere. She even has a small bed for the war axe that Favian has lovingly dubbed "Bun-Bun". Velvet secretly loves the name.

Name: Maki Setsuna Lao 

Age: 25

Human looks: Ref Maki is slender, fit and 6'3" tall (190.5cm) she easily sticks out in a crowd. Her hair has naturally occurring poliosis, that she colors with washable dies, mostly purple. Her eyes are silver, both hight and eyes being a trademark of Empress Lao her mother.  She has multiple scars on her due to Keni her Saber wolf mount, a tree shaped birthmark on her back right shoulder and a mole under one eye. When not in royal robes, she is usually in a priestess like outfit, hair braided or tied back with a violet or white ribbon.

personality:  Brave and bold. Having been told and trained her whole life to rule, she is quite humble for a princess. Her mother taught her to take care of herself until she was in her mid teens so she grew to appreciate the work others did for her. Has a air of calmness around her even in tense situations and will naturally take charge of the situation if needed be. A true natural born leader with wisdom beyond her years.

non-magic weapons: A longbow. She does know a little magic, mostly for purifying miasma or small doses of minor poison. 

Other: She views Samir as a little brother, although he was raised to be her bodyguard and advisor like his mother was to her own, but when his mother passed away when he was six, she started to drag him everywhere so he wouldn't be alone. She was the fifth person in her nation to tame a wild Saber Wolf she calls Keni (key-neye like brother bear)
