The Known World RPG
Since all or most of you seemed very optomistic for the idea of an RPG set in Edil-Amarandh, I've decided to already go ahead and get started on the project We'll start with simple character sheets and get those organised. Once everyone has made a char. sheet, I'll set up adventures and quests to take on with side chars to interact with. The RPG will take place before Mearad's time, somewhere around while Cadvan was still in school. I'll go ahead and make the first char. sheet as an example;

She is best known for her matches in logic and archery. When the head of the circle of Thorold discovered her, she had with her a puppet, Milan, and has kept eversince then.
If there are any questions, feel free to ask.
Alright, as I know everyone's been witing for it and I've been patient enough to not do it, here are the rules to the RPG:
1. Before joining, you must fill out a charcter sheet full with bio, etc.
2. You may use characters from the Books of Pellinor
3. You may not use someone elses character unless they've given you the right.
4. All major quests will be produced by said 'dungeon master.' (for this RPG, that would be myself, however, ideas via PM are ALWAYS welcome.
5. Since your character doesn't know whats happening outside of where they are, if someone else's character (for example) is a not-so-nice character and they're creeping on you from above or wherever, your character shouldn't know about it. It would be unfair of you to knock them out if your character hasn't even an idea of where they are, and you only know because you read in their post that they were coming. In other words, BE fair.
6. Concerning quests, if someone in the party is absent for more then one day, the quest is postponed until they return. It would be unfair to just leave them behind.
7. Be helpful to others in the RPG. In other words, don't neglect anyone who's come to join no matter how random their appearance is.
8. Concerning the above rule; please make your character join as logically as possible. All characters are welcome here, and they don't all have to start off coincedentally in the same place as where the quest is taking place.
9. If you ARE in Thorold or Innail, etc, and you feel the need to travel with everyone else or you're bored, ask others to create characters in your area. I promise as the 'dungeon master' to create characters toa everyone's need and will make multiple quests concerning where your character is stationed.
10. Please do not post a reply until your character sheet has been evaluated
11. PLEASE check your grammar before posting. This is important so that all other players know exactly what you're talking about and so there's no confusion.
12. Make sure character attributes are true to the setting
13. Try to make your character equal to everyone elses. In other words, there shouldn't be one over powering character that can easly demise everyone elses, that would be very unfair.
14. After you have read these rules, on your next reply, please, in your own words, pick a rule and write in your own words to show you've read them. Thankyou very much.
Thankyou very much for taking the time to read the rules. Enjoy the RPG, be nice, fair and polite. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask. Also, more rules may be added or taken away according to debugging the game itself.

Parents: Daria and Folorn, both dead at the hards of thier son...
Eye Color: Red
Hair Color: Unknown, he always wears a hood
(ignore the cursor, its my oblivion character)
Job: One of the Hulls of Den Raven
Bio: Elidor was born in the centre of light itself, Norloch. Despite excelling in all aspects of bardic teaching, he got tired of the petty lessons, and talks of the balance. Unlike most hulls, Elidor left his school, as opposed to being thrown out. He headed to Den Raven, where he was quickly accepted, and began his new training, much more to his satisfaction that before. Recently, he returned home, but only for the purpose of removing his final links to his previous life. He is not one of the higher ranked hulls within the area, although within his group he is regarded as an expert
