Note that this RP is meant for ALL BACKGROUNDS!you're free to come along on THE FIREGLASS EXPEDITION as long as your character isn't 1000 ft. tall or has a strong friendship with the Old Gods :P (Well, even then i suppose you could!!)!
This is my first RP thread so try not to judge it too harshly :P. This RP is set SPECIFICALLY in places where the Hot, Burning, and Fiery creatures tend to chill (or bake), so if your character doesn't like fire, he will hate your guts if you add him to this RP :P This doesn't mean we're going to be in the fireelands and wading through lakes of combusting oil! It simply means we're going into places that are quite hot.
Note that this isn't a comedy RP. It might have some jokes in it but it is a serious RP, with quite some violently detailed scenes to be appearing in the near future.
Tanaris mine outside Map
Silithus Deep mountains
It also happens on kalimdor and goes on into other elemental planes. It will slowly move into cataclysm and shall be affected strongly once the game is released (If it lives that long XD )
All races except gnomes with bombs strapped to their heads are welcome
also, there will be many enemies that cannot be killed. You can attempt to kill them, and you might even succeed. But it is very unlikely and you will probably die in the process. So if something's head is larger than Ratchet, It's not a good idea to go shooting arrows at it :P This isn't saying don't do it, it's simply a precaution.
These enemies will only show up about 10-15 times in the entire RP if it goes through, so don't be put off; You'll be slaying thousands of evil little freaks before the day is done.
<Feel free to join in >
Charred ash howls, depraved and hungry,
No lands to Burn, to crush, to curse.
But no longer, the chains , they hold the fiend down,
yu have hope none, death column Immersed.
Nox'Dol sat quietly at the table. Oben, Leader of the expedition returned his powerful glance with a glare from the opposite end of the table, while Ji'buu watched him with kind, curious eyes. Bridgey was sitting on the head-chair at the top end of the table, looking at his pocketwatch while smoking a pipe full of thistleshrub leaves.
Nox'Dol had recently come to the town of ratchet in search of decent coin, as he was beginning to become broke and not many jobs were available to a sand troll. Looking through the streets he spotted a Recruitment Poster that had been recently put up:
"Burnglass expedition wants YOU!"
"Recently, certain disturbances in the elemental spirits that reside all over azeroth have started to cause major concerns in many large organisations, and
The steamwheedle cartel is no different. Recent reports state that a mine in southern tanaris has been overrun by fire and magma elementals, and a quarry nestled deep within the mountains of silithus has unearthed a series of caverns filled with strange naga-like creatures with which fire is their specialty. These two incidents are assumed to be connected, and both have caused major financial issues for the Cartel. As a way to further understand these incidents and hopefully prevent future ones, we have created an expedition composed of members from booty bay, Ratchet and Gadgetzan.
However, these forces are limited in number and we are recruiting members of all races accepted in our cities to join the expedition andhelp with finding out and hopefully nullifying the cause of these events. The reward for completing this expedition will be honours from the city of undermine and kind recognition in the steamwheedle-Controlled towns. Also in the reward will be 10'000 gold pieces for each participant.
If you want to sign up, register your name at the INN and come upstairs at twilight."
Nox'Dol, wanting to gain some knowledge of the crazed elementals, along with needing the huge sum of money offered, did just that.
After signing up, he went upstairs to meet the leaders of the expedition. There he found Oben, A human knight from theramore who greeted him with a cold stare. judging from the markings on his armour, he was the expedition leader. There was a troll here as well. His name was Ji'buu, and he was an elementalist of the darkspear tribe, if the plaque on his seat was correct.And lastly, there sat at the end of the table a goblin, madly scribbling away on a piece of parchment. When he glanced up and noticed Nox'Dol, he greeted him. "Sandfury eh? Not to be rude, but we don't share too much love for YOUR kind."
Nox'Dol's face hardened. "I am not a sandfury, and I never will be until they see da errors of deir ways. I am Nox'Dol, by da way. Nice ta meet'cha." He said, his expression changing to kind as he shook hands with the goblin.
"Hmm, Yep yep. As long as you get the job done, i don't really care." said the goblin. "Name's bridgey by the way. Don't ask why."
At this point the knight cut in abruptly. "You're kidding, right goblin? This creature surely cannot be allowed to join our ranks! How do we know if the damn thing won't try to eat us when we're sleeping?"
"Same reason we know dat every'tin' dat comes outta ya bleedin' mouth is nonsense, ya racist pig." Snarled Ji'buu.
"Don't YOU start, troll. If i had my way, you'd be locked away in a jail cell and be starved of all food and and tortured for your wretchedness." spat Oben.
"And if I had mine, You'd be floating headfirst along the coast of da barrens wit' a blade t'rough ya skull." Retorted Ji'buu.
"And if I had MY way, which i DO, you two would stop arguing at once and realise that we're on the same side." Sighed Bridgey, "Oh, and Oben, do not call me a 'long eared bottom-feeding gremlin again, If you please. Keep your memoirs inside your mind, instead of muttering them aloud in the outhouse. Now, once everyone is here, we'll begin. Untill then," He stated, turning away from the angrily blushing Oben, "Please feel free to chat."
After about half an hour no one had shown up. Nox'Dol had suspected this, as he'd known it would take a while. He decided to break the silence by asking Ji'buu of his upbringing.
" Well, mon. As ya can see, I was brought up in da darkspear tribe. I earned my name at a very young age, because I did a great act o' power.
I slew a great beast , da monstrous tigress Khaduuvu. After nearly gettin' torn apart by her great claws i concentrated me mind ta call for help. I was amazingly able ta command da water and eart' around me to grow da roots of trees around da tigress in seconds." Lamented Ji'buu. "I den used da fire spirits ta burn her and da roots to a crisp. Den i used da air to blow da fire out. Since den, I've been quite revered in da tribe. I don't call myself a shaman as much, as i be less respectful to da spirits as others, but someday i hope to become a fully-fledged power of de elements."
"I respect ya story mon. I even had a similar happening when i was but a youngling."
"Bah, trolltalk. I find it astounding you savages care for such primitive things as "the hunt" Growled Oben.
"You do not know how to shut ya mouth do ya, ya cruel man!" snapped Nox'Dol, "Jus' cos a race isn't ya own doesn't mean ya have da right to walk over it!"
"I think we'll just wait for the next applicant, shall we?" Bridgey said.
