PostSubject: Anyone interested?    Tue Jul 07, 2015 7:05 pm

This is only an idea. Just wondering if there is any interest.

Barsoom (Mars) is a violent war-torn planet. Nearly everyone is hatched with a sword in his hand, and females, while not officially trained, are capable fighters.

I have no official story for the rp yet, if I ever do, but here is a rundown of the races on Barsoom.

Barsoom

Red Martians- The dominant race on Mars. Ruled by John Carter, Warlord of Mars. Red men and women are, without exception, beautiful, powerful, and fierce. All Red men are warriors first and foremost, despite secondary vocations.

First Born- Tall, muscular, strikingly handsome with their ebony skin, the First Born have been worshiped as gods for ages. They are possibly the second oldest race on Barsoom. They are cruel in nature and believe themselves vastly superior to all others. Still, they submit willingly to the rule of John Carter. More directly they are ruled by Xodar, a close personal friend to John Carter.

Green hordes- Standing as tall as fifteen feet and sporting the most alien and fearsome appearance on Mars, the Green Martians are not to be trifled with. They have four arms and eyes that protrude from the sides of their heads, making them able to see in multiple directions without turning their heads. The massive tusks that protrude from their mouths have been known to slice men completely in half... vertically.
There are dozens of different tribes of Green Martians, all of which live in the vast dead sea bottoms throughout Mars. The, arguably, most powerful tribe is the Tharks. They are ruled by Tars Tarkus. He is massive and easily the most terrible fighter among all Green Martians. He is also John Carter's closest and most trusted friend.

Okar- They Yellow Martians of the North Pole. Every Yellow male sports a thick black beard and head of hair. They are known as fierce warriors. Until recently, they were believed to be only myth.

Therns- There skin is white (white, not flesh colored) and their heads are naturally bald. Typically they are never seen without brilliant blonde wigs on their heads. While they are not known for their size or strength, their cunning and swordsmanship more that make up for it. Therns are the only race that can go one on one against John Carter and have even a prayer for victory. Like the First Born, they were believed to be deities until recently. They live in the Valley Dor. This was once thought to be heaven. Those who entered were believed to live there in eternal peace. They were actually being devoured by a giant race of plant-men moments after entering the valley.

Humans- There is, so far, only one human on Mars. John Carter is empowered with immense physical strength and agility while on Mars. Even without the enhanced abilities, he is without question, the most terrific and deadly warrior ever known to Earth or Mars. He has single handedly defeated entire armies with nothing but a longsword.

Any human on Mars would have have the same enhancements, though the degree is determined by their actual physical prowess.

Half-humans also have greatly enhanced abilities, though to a slightly lesser degree.

Is this intended to be a horror survival story from the perspective of the aliens or am I missing something?

Lol... whaaa?

It is meant to be a war/adventure type of thing. The races of Barsoom are extremely violent and love to go to war. The Green Martians actually find suffering and death hilarious. Like actually comical, not just because they are cruel. Also, only one or two of the races feel any fear at all. They have a survival instinct, but it is not in the form of fear. So nope, not horror.

Maybe I'm alone on this, but I feel that a good War RP needs balanced forces.

Also I will probably join if I get to shout "Witness me!" whenever my character enters a scene or does something cool.

You can shout that. Lol. Weirdo.

And no one will be playing John Carter. Any other human would be nowhere near his level. Its the combination of skill and power that make him what he is.

I would probably only allow one human character, and he/she would be limited somehow.

Witness me!

You will come to regret his. I am going to do it out of character as well.

Could I play a Thern raised by Red Martians?

That will depend on the timeline I go with. If it is too near to the events of the books, that would be impossible. The Therns were considered gods and never left their home, which everyone thought was heaven. Plus, everyone there hatches from eggs which incubate for five years. They hatch pretty much full grown. They take a few months to learn the language and all that but otherwise they are capable adults as soon as they hatch. People still live with their parents but not really to be raised in the traditional sense.

I could come up with something. I had originally planned abandonment (possibly for some sort of defect) but maybe with the egg thing he was stolen by some giant bird, and by time it got shot down the egg was out of the valley or something.

Yeah. He would have to be hidden from the rest of the world. Until recently, the Red Martians would not even have touched a Thern. It would have been like trying to touch God himself to them. I don't mind if you figure something out for it though. John Carter often painted his skin red or yellow to disguise himself, maybe you could do something like that.

In any case, if I do make this rp, it won't be anytime soon.
