Pruul Territory Want Ads

Pruul: The Next Chapter


Pruul has been irrevocably changed by the Rains, brought for seven nights and seven days by the Mineborn. But ending The Great Drought was not without consequences. The rain has incensed the Sandworms, previously only found in the deep desert. They have begun to spread, further and further each day. They have made travelling across the desert increasingly perilous and many Tribes have been attacked. As the worms get closer to the few major cities in Pruul, their numbers multiplied, some worry that travel will become impossible. And without Winds to connect the territory, what will happen to the great people of Pruul if they are marooned within their own land?

Perhaps there is still hope. Perhaps that hope rests in the hands of Healers, one from each Tribe and Clan, that might one day possesses the ability to control these creaters—for good or evil.

The Major Players:


The Future


Medium Difficulty
The Young One
Shuri al-Kalurops
Healer
Rose to Purple Dusk (unrolled)
Suggested PB: Letita Wright
Age range: 18-21

Shuri is the youngest of the Healers that believes she can make a difference. She grew up as an orphan, using her talents to heal horses as they fell ill from travelling. She grew attached to the creatures and some say she loves them more than she loves people. This could not be furthure from the truth, however, because Shuri’s gift for healing is strongest at sensing pain. Not just open wounds, but the pain of anxiety, frustration, and anger. It plagues her, everywhere. Everywhere but the desert. The prospect of never being able to cross it again is more than she can bare.

Plotlines: Shuri views the Sandworms as ultimately an animal, even with their reputation for senseless killing. She wants to treat them humanly, study them, and learn how Pruulian can coexist with the creatures. This devotion to the Sandworms as creatures gives her a unique edge.

OVERALL NOTES: These characters will embark on a very dangerous mission to save Pruul. They risk bodily harm to themselves and their Jewels. Please approach this plot knowing there is very real consequences to embarking on this journey. Additionally, these are starting concepts and 12 healers will be available, so PM me if you have other ideas.



 
Other Pruul Concepts


The desert can not be claimed or owned – it is a piece of cloth carried by the winds, never held down by stones, and given a hundred shifting names.



The Major Players:



The al-Izar Clan



Standard Difficulty
Second in Command to MOTG
Cas al-Izar
Warlord
Rose to Purple Dusk
Suggested PB: Alexis Papas
Age range: 28+

The al-Izar are forming a new Clan to cope with the influx of people that have begun to worship them after the Rains. Lucky al-Izar will take the position of Master of the Guard and the untrusting Prince will only allow Cas al-izar (formally Cas al-Sabbah) to be his second-in-command. The Warlord has been with Lucky since he was found, tortured and his chalice fractured, two years ago. Lucky saved his life and in many ways, Cas has saved the Warlord Prince's as well.

Cas is a single father with two children, a little girl and a little boy. After the Rains, he left the Clan of his birth to follow his friend into the unknown. It was a difficult decision, especially with two children, but he feels connected to the fate of the Mineborn and their new Clan in a way that he never did for the Sabbah. He isnt a sycophant, but he respects the Mineborn for who they are and what they gave Pruul. He follows them because of that respect, not because he believes they are Mother Night made flesh.

As second-in-command he will have a difficult task ahead. He will have to temper Lucky's fiery temper and find a tentative middle ground between him in the newly forming guard of the al-Izar. Most of the men he will command either view Lucky and his siblings as saviors or are untested city dwellers.

http://www.bloodrites.net/pruul-42/festival-of-onn-aftermath/

Tips and Notes: This character will be very influential in helping the al-Izar Clan flourish. Unlike many of my other want ads, this character has an established NPC history, so plot with me before you decide to take him. Many plots with all the Mineborn and other Clans galore.




Standard Difficulty
Wards of the al-Izar
Any Caste
 Suggested PB: Any
Age range: 18+

The al-Izar are not like other Clans. Where others would turn away orphans, street rats, thieves, and even murderers, the al-Izar are not nearly as picky. They wish for loyalty and for a desire to built something great, but the past is the past—just as theirs is. Because of this, an influx of Wards have petitioned to join the al-Izar. Children not even at their Offering yet. They see a way to make a new life and they want to take it.

***Entire backstory is up for change. This is just an idea to jump off of.

Tips and Notes: Wards can be any caste, any Jewels, and have any backstory. They do not even have to be originally from Pruul. Theya re the young of the al-Izar, promising a future for the new Clan. 


STANDARD DIFFICULTY
Dimplomat of the al-Izar
Amir al-Izar
Any Caste
Broken Jewels (These Jewels are not rolled.)
Suggested PB: Bahah Radem
Age range: 18+

The Mineborn need alleys. They need others to believe their rule is legitimate. To do this, Omid and Amir will travel to other territories as emissaries. As such, this male needs to be very well read and studied in the art of Protocol. Basically, he needs to be everything that the Mineborn are not.

He probably grew up next to a Queen or a Voice, travelling the desert with a heavily merchant Tribe, trading with other cultures and people. In this way, he developed a curiosity for the unknown and beyond the barriers of his home. Unfortunately, he went seriously into debt while he was in Onn, betting more than he on a cobra fight. After he saw the Miracle of the Mineborn, the new Clan filled him with the courage to finally pursue his dream to be a diplomat, but his past is not left behind forever. He needs to find a way to pay back the debts he owes. 

Casting off his old life as a trader and leaving his old Tribe behind, he is throwing himself into a new adventure.

***Entire backstory and gender is up for change. This is just an idea to jump off of.

Tips and Notes: Huge plot potential, including inter-territory. It would be interesting if this character potentially developed a “trade” network as well, either thieves that would steal the valuables of other territories or merchants that sold Pruulian wears for exorbitant process. I also have a small SECRET PLOT for this character as well. PM me for it.

[Any concept for an al-Izar character is welcome. These are but a few starting ideas!]

The Order of Sicarii



STANDARD DIFFICULTY
Co-Founder of the Order of Sicarii
Esmail ibn-Barakat
Any Male Caste
Rose to Summer Sky. (These Jewels are not rolled.)
Suggested PB: Hamid Fadaee
Age range: 25+

For each calamity that has occurred to Pruul the Order of Sicarii rises up within the Order of Tohm to start pushing things back towards center, always guided by the leader of the Order. Their mission is to shepherd their own members to the true path and, more importantly, to reclaim Pruul’s proud heritage and noble traditions when peace does not work. Joining the Order of Sicarii is a dual edged privilege and one taken with faith that any acolyte can take on: Blood or Landen.
 
After they have completed the steps to become an acolyte of the Order of Tohm, members must undergo more intensive purifying rituals to become part of the sword that protects the ancient sect. They undergo sensory deprivation and are given special herb blends to help enlighten them to the cause. Finnaly, to complete their initiation they must prove loyalty only to the Sicarii symbolically through a personal sacrifice of something truly loved or cherished.

Brother to Chaka ibn-Barakat (played by Tenkou), Esmail is the co-founder of the radicalized sect called the Order of Sicarii. They are bitterly against the al-Izar, believing them to be the ruin of Pruul. Those children have deceived all of Pruul and led astray followers of the Order’s teachings. Some believe the new tyrants can be brought down by words, but the Sicarii believe that they can only be brought down with violence.

Esmail and Chaka have a very close relationship. Both with long-lived blood, they stand to make a very lasting mark on Pruul. Charismatic and dedicated, they are determined to make the Order of the Sicarii a true force of nature.

***Entire backstory is up for change. This is just an idea to jump off of.

Tips and Notes: This player should not have a squeamish stomach, as the Sicarii will be heavily involved with violent future plots within Pruul. PM me for some secret fun details! 


MEDIUM DIFFICULTY
The Butcher
Any Caste
Rose to Opal. (These Jewels are not rolled.)
Suggested PB: Anyone
Age range: 18+

A sadist in private and a nice person in public, this mysterious figure is behind the bombs, poisons, and weapons that the Order of Sicarii is supplied with. They have a fascination with watching people suffer and they like to devise new ways to do that. Unfortunately for this person though, they also have a very overbearing family. This family has engaged him/her to an aspiring young Queen or Warlord Prince and they are expected to make the family proud.

The Sicarii send the Order members to this figure that have gone too far in the training, but now want out. Well. They get their wish, but probably not in the way they want. Balancing their two lives has been difficult and it often sends this figure into rages. Their partner has begun to suspect that something is not quite right with their lover and it seems like some is about to discover this person’s dark secret.

***Entire backstory and gender is up for change. This is just an idea to jump off of.

Tips and Notes: This character will be a big baddy in Pruul, but they have the unique privilege of living a rather charmed life within the city of Onn as well. This duel identity will be very interesting to explore and opens up the character for all kinds of plots.


The Aubdina



STANDARD DIFFICULTY
Aubdina Trainee
White to Tiger Eye Priestess. (These Jewels are not rolled.)
Suggested PB: Mallika Sherawat
Age range: 18+

This Water Priestess passed the Rite of Aub, the deadly ritual to enter the ranks of the Aubdina, after her Offering, but she is struggling. Her body is not building up the resistance to the Sandworm poison needed to conjure water from the air as it should. A black and blue bruise is creeping over her stomach and down her arm. It is a sign that her body can no longer handle the poison, but she refuses to give up her prestigious spot with the Aubdina.

Instead, she is working out ways to try and hide her body’s response from her sisters. Chief among these ways is recruiting a male that is utterly dedicated to her, one that will help her keep her prestige without revealing her secret. That combined with her plan to seduce a younger Aubdina to perform her rituals for her should ensure her continued success.

***Entire backstory is up for change. This is just an idea to jump off of.

Tips and Notes: This trainee is conceded and believes that fame and fortune are hers by right. She has led a charmed life up until now and she wants to keep it that way. It is her singular goal and this Priestess lives and breaths deceit. It is masked though. She is unbearably sweet on the outside, but every move she makes is calculated and intended to move up her station in life.

[Any concept for a Water Priestess character is welcome. A male water Priest could be especially interesting.]

 
The Mines


Standard Difficulty
The Twins
Castes Male or female
Age range: 18+

The Mines leave many scars. This can be see by the Mineborn and those that are close to them, but there are others that rose from an unjust imprisonment in the Mines. The Twins are two such individuals. Betrayed in Hayll, these two assassins were sent to the Salt Mines of Pruul to hopefully never be heard from again.

They did not die that easily though.

The two were collared and quickly made a rather deadly name for themselves underground. Adramelech al-Sabbah took notice. He began to send them on small missions within Pruul to assassinate key opponents of his, inside and outside his own Clan, promising them their freedom with each assignment. Of course, it was something they never received. One of the twins grew frustrated and instead of going after their assigned target, went after Adramelch himself. The Spider was ever aware though, and his Webs warned him of the attack.

As punishment, the Old Spider had one of the twins broken and driven crazy. The twins fell in line after that and while one was away on assignment, the other stayed with Lucky al-Izar for protection.

Years later, freed, the twins are looking for revenge and a new start. Lucky al-Izar has offered them the latter within his Clan, because he knows it will take time for them to achieve the former.

***Entire backstory is up for change. This is just an idea to jump off of.

Tips and Notes: I am looking for a PAIR of players to take up the twins. I think they will be able to reach their full potential only playing off of each other.

Then world behind and home ahead, We'll wander back to home and bed.
