The Sky Is Calling


Welcome to Cetan.
In a land where its people have been cut off from ours for centuries, magic and mythical beasts live on. Hidden by a deadly mountain range that surrounds it, the people who live in it have managed to tame the last of a fantastic species: The griffin. Half beast, half raptor, and all awe-inspiring. Wild griffins still roam in the most remote edges of the forest, perhaps a newcomer to the land like you could train one to be your own?


or...

You're a lone griffin. Maybe you are cold and hungry. Maybe the only thing you hunger for is power. Will you seek out others, or carve your legend on your own? In a land still obscured from a world where the wild has been suppressed, how many adventures await a creature like you in the magic of the untamed wild.

Rules:
  • No cursing.
  • Keep fight scenes to a low PG-13 at most.
  • You cannot kill, cripple, or control another person's character without their permission.
  • No invincible/impossibly strong characters.
  • All technology or weapons in the RP cannot be more than what would exist in the Middle Ages (Medieval Period). Nothing like guns, cell phones, or i-pads
  • One blow per post in fight scenes. The OTHER person gets to decide the injury their character takes.
  • Your character can only dodge 1 out of every 4 posts in a fight scene. All the other times the injury taken must be at LEAST as bad as a paper-cut.
  • Be realistic.
  • NO other magical creatures than griffins.
  • NO magic or powers. (Besides griffins existing.)
  • You can have a wild griffin. Just remember people can try to tame them.
  • Each human character can only own three griffins at most. You can make as many humans and wild griffins as you want.
  • Griffins can have the hindquarters of any big cat and the front of any Falconiform (ANY bird of prey BUT owls.)
  • Griffins can be any color (blue, reddish, orange) as long as its not something ridiculous like hot pink (yes, normal pink is okay) or neon yellow.
  • Humans CAN'T talk to griffins. Griffins can, however, talk to other griffins.
  • More info on griffins. (I DON'T own this or claim ANY credit. Just love the game!) http://forums.orderofthegriffin.net/showthread.php?t=300 The RP is based off of this, so I'd love it if you read most of it.

Breeds of Griffins:
  • (I DON'T own this; it is based off a game. All credit is to the creator in the link above. If you can't find pictures feel free to ask me, and I will look for some.)
