Topic: RPG: Assassins & Bodyguards
Hello, this is my 4th or 5th attemt at an RPG. Hope this one turns out better that the rest! All of you know the rules, but I'm going to emphises the ones I want you to pay attention too the most: No Godmoding, Very very short posts are not welcomed here, but will be allowed if there is no other option. Be as creative and original as can please.
In this RPG you'll play as an Assassins or a Bodyguard. Each side is a devoted Order of a sheer opposite art, one devoted to Assassination, the other devoted to the preservation of those targeted by such. The time will be in the middle ages, of Earth. The only differance will be the presence of magic. There are different classes, and ranks for differently skilled and more advanced than other Assassins/ Bodygaurds. Here are the classes for the assassins:
DarkArts Assassin: These Assassins specialize in utilizing magic to there advantage on missions. They frequently carry small magical items to help with there on missions. They also have a good grasp of spells type attacks, depending on rank. Medium level of skill in stealth and blade.
Shadow Assassin: These Assassins use stealth as there main weapon. More often then not, there targets are quite dead before the guards even know theres been an intrusion. High skill in stealth, low in blade, medium level of skill in magic.
ColdSteel Assassin: These Assassins use specialized steel weapons, (swords, maces, knives, ect.) for taking out gaurds and there targets. They use them with frightening efficiency. Limited or no skill with spells. Medium skill levle in stealth tactics. High ability level with steel weapons.
Order Assassin: An evenly balanced out Assassin, medium grasp of spells, stealth, and the blade. Most common type of assassin
Now the ranks:
Bloodbringer (Master Assassin): These Assassins are the most skilled in all there ablilites. (I would like to limit the the number of these to no more than three)
Deathnote (Average Assassin): These Assassins have a medium level of skill in all there abilites.
DeathHoper (Novice): These Assassins have a lower than average skill in there abilites.
Apprentices (Apprentice): These Assassin could hardly be called such, and are not to be trusted with solo missions. They have a very low skill level in all there abilites.
If your an Assassin, you are the aggressor, and will be on the attack. You must kill in anyway, the man or woman you have been assigned. But be wary, being discovered by more than eight Bodyguards/Guards will almost always spell certain death for you. If you are captured they will torture you intill you betray the Assassin's Order. Subtality, timing, creativity, stealth and quick thinking are your best weapons. Use them. Also, you will almost always be working alone. However you can use additional
assassin, at the cost of losing some of you reward.
Now here are the classes for the Bodyguards:
Steel Pretectors: These BodyGuards use heavy armor, and weapons to pretect the client. They are skilled with blades and armor of all types, and weild them with out mercy. High skill with blades, low skill with magic, able to lead 20 guards.
Magic Shields These Bodyguards are knowledgeable in spells of most types, but specialize in pretection type spells. They often carry small magical items on there missions. High skill in magic, low skill in blade, able to lead 15 guards.
Hope Bringer These Bodyguards rely largly on the skills of the men under them. They lead these men with amazing charisma. Low skill in blade and magic, but high in leadership: able to lead 40 guards.
Defender: These bodyguards have the most evenly balanced out skills. Most common bodyguard. Medium skill level in blade, leadership and magic. Able to lead 10 guards.
The Impenetrable: (Master) These bodyguards are masters of all there skills.
The Defending: (Average Bodyguard) These bodyguards have a medium level of skill in there abilites.
The Defense Tryers: (Novice) These Bodyguards have a lower than average understanding of there skills.
Apprentices: (Apprentice) These bodyguards can hardly be called such, and are never trusted to work alone. They have a poor understanding of there skills.
If your a Bodyguard, your job is to protect the man or woman you have been assigned at all costs...even if it causes you your own life. You will be working together (enless you chose not to, though it is advised) with at least ten regular guards as support. Be careful, the assassins will be tricky, and stealthy. You must be on your watch. Overpreparation, careful planning, numbers and good leadership are your weapons. Use them. You will almost never work alone. However you will be paid more.
I will be Rping as the Grand Masters of both Orders, giving missions out to players on both sides. I will also be Rp as agents for the Grandmasters. Please post your characters, as soon as you do I will give out assignments.
