Sample: "Just another storm coming" she told herself as she rowed back to the mainland. Her trips for supplies usually lasted about two days, but this time she was back early. She kept rowing and soon reached the shore, and realized that whatever was happening was not just "another" storm. When she reached the shore, Kiara jumped from the boat and aided her two dogs, Christion and Christa, in getting out as well.<BR><BR>The ground shook beneath her feet. The beach that had just a few moments befor been as still and undisturbed as pond water, was in turmoil. The waves gre choppier and rushed up the sand with growing size and menace. She grabbed the dogs by the collar and rushed toward her hut. Thinking quickly, Kiara ran to the bed and reached under it. If she couldn't save anything she would save this one last relic she had of the parents she did not remember. Taking to the beach again she knew she didn't have much time. As she ran she glanced over her shoulder to see Christion, followed closely be Christa, racing after her. <BR><BR>The breakers were almost above high tide and quickly coming father up the small hill that separated Koriantra Beach from the rest of the island. If she could just reach the boulders, she might be safe. She stopped short as the sunlight was suddenly blocked off by a huge shadow. Looking up, the sky to her right was completely blocked off by an emormous wall of water. A sudden tremor in the earth knocked her to her feet. Christion had caught up with her and licked her face with a whimper. Jumpin to her feet again she began to run, when everything went black.<BR><BR>*************<BR><BR>Post a character if you would like to join and leave your email address for further notification on the story line and other info. Please use the same format as used below<BR><BR>Name: Kiara<BR>Race: Half-elf<BR>Skills: sword fighting and archery.<BR>Weapons: Broadsword and elven long bow.<BR>Look: 17; 6'1"; long brown hair; green eyes; pointed ears, but not immortal; wears breeches and tunic instead of dress.<BR>Character: Laughs easily; pessimistic and grumpy depending on the weather.<BR>Personal History: Born the daughter to a wealthy merchant and ship owner, but orphaned at the age of 5 when both parents were lost at sea in a dreadful storm. She was given into the care of an old hag that ran a bar and inn. Kiara escaped at the age of 11, disguised herself as a boy and went to work with a smithy who also taught her to use the sword and longbow, for which she had unusual talent. The blacksmith found out she was a girl when she turned 15 and cast her into the street with her personal belongings. "Generous" was the word he used. Kiara built herself a small hut on the beach and made ends meat for herself by taking a job with a local entertainer, who thought women who could shoot and handle a sword just as well as he could were all the rage in entertainment. She also owned two shepherd like hounds that she reschued as pups from a sack that was thrown into the ocean by a local fishing boat.

Arwen#1,<BR>Very interesting. We'll rescue you from the island in about two days, when the real thread starts. If you could, try to recruit one more person. As of right now, I'm not really sure what the purpose/"quest" for the story is. I'm still brianstorming. So, if you have any ideas, post them here.

Arwen 32315, looks to me you have an RP on the way... I'm interested in joining up (perhaps, if you'll have me of course) but I think I'll wait until the plotline has 'taken flight' a little more, so to speak... I'm still at a bit of a loss as to where this story is heading? Is this an adventuresque RP?<BR> understand your still fishing for ideas, so I'll keep an eye on the threads and post my bio when I'm ready to contribute. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Tanith.

I have posted twice and someone else has too, and I don't want the thread to go down. <BR><BR>You can go ahead and start building your story Arwen#1, but your island is the next stopping point.

Hey Arwen#, I like the way the story is going right now, but could you include a little bit more detail how we came to be where we are and how we're related (cousins or something, you pick.) I don't mind if you put words in Kiara's mouth, I've done it for you lots. I'm thinking about changing the plot too. Not sure to what though, os if you have any ideas just let me know. Also, if you know anyone who would be interested in this could you let them know about it; we seem to have lost the rest of our band. Thanks<BR><BR>~Lady Evenstar

I was. I couldn't find it so I started a new one *shrugs*. Anywhooo, I have our plot figured out, but if you have any ideas just go ahead and post them #1. I'ts in the last post I made for the RP. Just so the newcomers know, Kiara and Christy are cousins and they are trying to find out what happened to their parents and what they were looking for. Their parents came from Valinor. I was thinking when we figure out what they were looking for we could find it, and it could be responsible for sinking Atlantis. Since whatever it is is a danger to the planet we could take it to Valinor and turn it over to the Valar.

It belonged to her mother, and her mother got it from Ulmo so it has some magic to it. I'm thinking about having it be part of what helps the the two of us win the battle. There has to be a person behind everything. It would help if we had a couple more people for the story
