Pruul Territory Want Ads
« on: Jan 19, 17, 10:53:45 AM »
The Mother of Daggers


The True Sabbah have begun to hunt those with long-lived blood within Onn. There are rumors that they wish to rid Pruul of all the impure. As it becomes more difficult to live in Onn with golden eyes and jet black hair, a gang of street rats plotted. They sent their Queen away with a travelling Clan, hoping to keep her safe. Some have long-lived blood as well, some worry that they made a mistake. Whatever happens, by sending their Queen away they have changed the flow of Pruul’s history.

The Pack


Medium Difficulty
The Bonded One
Cyrus Bone
Prince or Warlord Prince
Rose to Purple Dusk (unrolled)
Suggested PB: Arash Marandi
Age range: 18-21

Cyrus is Avin’s first bonded male. They met when she tried to steal bread from one of his Pack and he quickly adopted her into his gang. They fight often, fiercely, but always with the steady expectation of making up. It was he who decided to send Avin away to protect her and it was he who drugged her so she wouldn’t kick him in the balls when she realized what was happening. He is uncertain if he made the right choice and wonders if he put his Queen in more danger by sending her away.

Plotlines: Cyrus will remain in Onn while Avin travels with the Tabur Clan, but they will soon meet up, only so Avin can strangle him. Eventually he will join Avin’s Court and help fight against those that wish to hurt her.




MEDIUM DIFFICULTY
The Smallest One
Amarrah Star
Witch (Warlord)
Rose to Summer Sky. (These Jewels are not rolled.)
Suggested PB: Hasti Mahdavi
Age range: 18

Amarrah is the youngest of the Pack and Avi has been teaching her to fight for the past four years now. She is scrappy and wishes to grow up to be Avin’s Master of the Guard. She takes the security of their family very seriously and takes it incredibly hard when any of them get injured. She was very vocal about not sending Avin away, but was overruled.

Tips and Notes: This character is still young and a bit innocent, for all the difficulty she has seen on the street. I see her being part long-lived and targeted for her heritage. Pruul is all she has ever known, so she does not understand why people think she is any less Pruulian than them.

 
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 Sandworm Protectors

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 Protectors:


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. 

The Brave

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Reserved for Halyonix

The Foolish

MEDIUM DIFFICULTY
The Foolish One
Gemmarah al-Hague
Opal to Red Healer. (These Jewels are not rolled.)
Suggested PB: Up to you
Age range: 21+

Gemmarah is fueled by the desire to obtain power, by any means necessary. She was picked up in the desert by her tribe as a toddler, her parents killed as they tried to make it to Onn. The Hague, among the least xenophobic of Pruulian Tribes, adopted the young Healer for her Birthright was dark and it promised great possibilities for their Tribe. Just because she was adopted did not mean she was accepted though. Mercilessly taunted and bullied, she grew bitter and alone. Now that her Tribe might be helpless, marooned in the Onn, she wants to rise up and…not help them.

She wants to learn the true extent of her abilities and then sell them to the highest bidder. She wants to show the world that just because she was not born in Pruul does not mean she cannot save it…or destroy it.

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

Tips and Notes: Gemmarah has never truly known love and until she does her nature will remain stormy and spiteful. Slowly, through the comradery of sisterhood she might build with the other Healers, perhaps she will finally find a home. Or perhaps not. Only time will tell.

 
The Doomed


Medium Difficulty
The Doomed
Zae al-Bakka
Summer Sky to Green Healer. (These Jewels are not rolled.)
Suggested PB: Maryam Zakaria
Age range: 30+

Zae is full of hope and light. She is perhaps the sweetest Healer you will ever meet. She had an idyllic life, given what she desired just as she gave others what they desired. Skilled in Sandworm trauma healing, she is able to pull someone back that has a gash taken out of their stomach. She has saved countless lives and seen the damage these creatures can cause to her people. With this in mind, she has begun to study them for the past few years, learning their anatomy from the few dead carcasses that have been captured with memory crystals.

And, although it hurts her, she has taught herself how to reverse heal. She believes that the Craft could be the key to taking down these creatures and it colors how she views her ability to control the creatures. If one can control them, even for a moment, one can connect enough to plant a tumor that would obliterate them forever.

Tips and Notes: Zae is the most advanced healer of them all, training for years and studying the Sandworms in depth. She has a wealth of knowledge and unique ideas. Although the idea of hurting a creature upsets her, she will do anything she needs to in order to keep more of her people from falling under her healing hands.

Be warned: this character has a tragic fate.


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.

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-a-breath-of-hope/
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 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.
