Character: Mikalle

Rumors:

Easy (Very Common, likely baseless):
  • * "Her? Nah, she's all bluster. No skills to back up the loud mouth, y'know?"
    * "No, I think she's .. you know.. the type to sell what she was born with. If you know what I mean. Acts like one, anyway."
    * "Saw her take out an ogre three times her size with a candle and some rope. Don't ask me how she did it. Seriously - you don't want to know."
Medium (Uncommon, Potentially true):
  • * "Mika? That girl's a pistol. Don't let her kiss you - no, I mean it. Poison on her lips; I've seen grown men collapse after a smooch with that one."
    * "I heard she was personally trained by Savani."
Hard (Very uncommon, likely true):
  • * "Yeah, she works with Savani, now. Heard he practically made her what she is today - which would explain a lot. Lunatics, the lot of them."
    * "She acts like nothing can take her down, but there's a weakness, there. You can't see it? It's plain as day."
Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But I Want You To Know OOCly):
  • (May be added later.)
Wanted:
  • * Friends! Currently, Mika is a very new character and doesn't know many PCs. Allies that she can get to know and maybe even depend upon would be great.
    * Enemies! The same applies, but in reverse - I love having someone as a rival (or multiple someones)! Anyone who may feel like they need to stamp out evil would totally work - Mika's reputation isn't fantastical, but it is growing in the darker circles of the world.
    * Hapless victims! Do you need a small-time villain to harass your character? Look no further!

Re: The Rumor Mill

Post by Yssyvielis » 12/26/10

Character: Yssyvielis Il'Seliel

Common Rumors:
Anyone affiliated with The Concordium could easily find this information and it is all true:
- She is the daughter of Kaltharad Il'Seliel, a fairly high class but anti-social Erudite Wizard.

- Kaltharad himself never partakes in relationships actively, Yssyvielis is the result of a night with a courtesan and a lack of precautions. Something he apparently does quite often, though nowadays with more care.

- The Courtesan, is not known by name to Yssyvielis on the grounds that she died while giving childbirth. It was a particularly rough pregnancy, and they did not anticipate that Yssyvielis would make it. She was however, a widowed High Elf woman who was known well enough for her profession.

- At a young age, it was determined that Yssyvielis did not share her father's gifts. But was still rather magically adept. However despite many teachers, classes and attempts. She never exhibited much in the way of control despite the prodigal amount of potential she has.

- Though she is a half breed, there are no rumors of her having much trouble with her Father. Though based on her mannerisms and glyphs it's fairly obvious that she takes after her Erudian side, and therefore must have been raised with that in mind. Even if, as rumors would have it that she did not see much of him.

More personal rumors that are undocumented:

- She occasionally takes the form of a fae when she knows she will be going somewhere and she is likely to be unaccepted, it for whatever reason is the only self-illusion she can manage.

- Most mages would find her presence to enhance their natural ability. Sort of like a powerful set of ley lines. They may not however know it is her doing, but her presence would be pleasing.

Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But I Want You To Know OOCly):
The extent of her abilities stops at illusions and dreamweaving. She's completely incapable of telepathy, but receives messages and emotions just fine. She cannot mend minds, or manipulate time (yet), and to most people she is harmless. Everything she can do that would be dangerous is an illusion or dream manipulation, and she isn't a very good actress to go along with it.

Like her alignment says in her character sheet, she is painfully neutral. She is also extremely susceptible to outside influence.

Wanted: Roleplay, good or bad. I wouldn't mind her being used, or manipulated herself. She doesn't quite understand what the fuss is about her, only that she troubled her teachers immensely.

Character: Clemency Salonius

Common Rumors around Beggar's Court:

The Washerwoman: "Oh? The creepy girl? The one with all the dolls? Yes, I know of her. Her mother is a real windbag, poor but trying to act rich. I suppose she passed on her crappy personality to her daughter. I seen the girl floating cats in the air, laughing as they screeched in confusion. She almost went after my Bessa until I told her to just keep away and not say a word to her. Horrifying child. She'll never find a husband like that."

The Tailor: "Clemency? She's not all bad. She's been a loyal customer for years. I always think of her when I come across a pretty fabric. Everyone knows she makes dolls, but not everyone knows about the skill she puts into their outfits. Such a tight stitch on that girl! You know recently she's been going around the Court and handing out some of them to the little girls and boys. All for free. I know why, of course. For years, those were the only friends she had. Maybe, to some of them kids, it'll be the only friend they ever have as well. Nice of her."

The Butcher: "Ach, that lass... Creepy as 'ell. Ya kno she dun broke er mum's plates wid 'er mind? Apparently she did'na want any of me pork chops fer dinner. Scary little witch. Them were prime cut!"

The Young Lady: "Clemency? Ha! She's weird. The girls and I always made fun of her for those creepy tricks she does. What a freak! Who'd ever want to marry her? When I turned sixteen I had four suitors after me. Guess how many she had? Of course. None. She'll die alone of course, but that's just fine. The Overlord says the weak will weed themselves out of society eventually!"

Mama: "Really, she's an embarrassment. How will I ever marry her off to a rich family when she acts the way she does? Sometimes I wish I never had her. Her brother is the only hope I have left of having grandchildren and a rich daughter-in-law. I can't boss her around as much as I should because she's dangerous with that mind curse she has. It's like all the gods were against me when she was born!"

Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But I Want You To Know OOCly):

-She's so lonely she goes to tears nearly every night before bed. All she wants is acceptance.
-Clemmy has a lovely singing voice.
-She's afraid of the dark.
-She's afraid of being alone, but despite this, she almost always is.
-She has a bit of psychometry, which is the ability to read the past of an object. This may be a budding power for her.
-Her brother is the only relative she really considers family.
-She's poor.
-If all of her dolls were to be destroyed at once the wave of mental energy rushing back to her would kill her.
-She doesn't have as much control over her mind as she'd like to think. If she got angry enough everyone would be in danger.


Wanted:
-A good friend, someone to talk to and chat with who sees her as a person, not just "weird girl."
-An enemy of any sort.
-Someone willing to scare her.
-A tutor/mentor, someone to apprentice to.
-Anyone needing the help of a talented mind mage in their plot.
-Anyone willing to play a doll!
-And any RP anyone is willing to give her!

Re: The Rumor Mill

Post by Thanchir » 03/02/11

Character:Thanchir D'Arkund, Viper

Common Rumors (correct and incorrect):-He's a terrible slaver with a heart made of coal
-Many have tried to kill him but even when they see him die, his lifeblood pour from him, he always shows up again.
-He has no patience for stupid people
-He had a wife but he killed her
-He's a vampire
-He bathes in the blood of the accused
-He does not like being questioned
-He doesn't like women
-He doesn't like men
-He doesn't like anyone
-He doesn't really like selling slaves
-He owns a hundred slaves
-He's secretly a coward!
-He's a powerful Arbiter in the Nerian courts, trained by his famous grandfather who was also an Inquisitor.
-He rigs the court to let out his frustrations with executions
-He's a mind mage
-He's not well-liked by Innoruuk


Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But I Want You To Know OOCly):-Thanchir dearly loved his deceased wife who happened to be Koada'Dal. Her family killed her for her choice to marry the Inquisitor and his racism from that point on grew manyfold and he decided to take on the family practice of slavery

-At any given time he's seen in public, it's not actually him, but a body double, magically altered to look like him and his mind running the show. It's a common practice for do-gooders to target slavers and so far it has kept Thanchir alive.

-He likes children, and when they come to him off the block he makes sure they're freed as quickly as possible, though this is shrouded in secrecy. If word got around he'd been freeing merchandise his reputation would be ruined. When they're asked for he'll usually reply "they're out of stock."


Wanted: Anyone foolish enough to play Thanchir's high-risk games! A business associate, an antagonist. Any RP would be welcomed.

She is not at all shy but it works for her at this time. She trusts no one! She only left her studies as a chanter because punching and kicking keeps her calm

Character: Luxelen Marie Greenleaf (Stage Name: Lux Lovegood, Code Name: Deluxe (har har, The Lux...>.>) )

Common Rumors:

*She wasn’t really raised in a farm, the whole farm girl thing is a ruse because it attracts sympathy and/or endearment
*She moonlights as an escort/companion
*She’s a mind mage
*Her feminine wiles are practically an art form
*She’s not an actress, just suffering from Multiple Personality Disorder
*She’s a spy
*She's a con artist
*She’s well-trained in the art of projecting what her subject wants to see/hear/feel
*She’s well-trained in the art of mirroring her subjects
*She works for more than one organization
*She has a partner in crime, literally
*She’s insane
*She’s really dumb and naïve
*She’s a master of disguises
*She’s boy-crazy and a serial flirt
*She’s madly in love with the worst person ever
*She’s an intelligence agent within a network of mercenaries for hire
*She drugs people with ‘special lipstick’
*She’s a gold digger

*She is very fond of avian creatures and wants to have her own free-range aviary sanctuary someday
*She’s an opportunist first and foremost, and will always seize the moment
*She was once a Renda’Dal nobleman’s lover
*She almost married said Renda’Dal
*She's had more than three dozen noblemen lovers, and still counting
*She’s not afraid of much, but she fakes fears to score sympathy points
*She’s very adept at subterfuge and trains others she deems talented enough
*She’s ambidextrous
*She a skilled swordsman but she’d never show it



Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But I Want You To Know OOCly):
Some of the above is true, some of the above is false.

Wanted: Lux is a catalyst. The reason for her origin was to instigate/provoke/make introductions/get things started in a certain semi-regular RP event. She’s an entertainer first and foremost, IC and OOC. I wanted a character that I could throw into a room/tavern/guildhall/RPchannel and just sort of…start people talking, plotting, gossiping, groaning, rolling their eyes, irritating, giggling, whatever. She’s there for comedic relief and for stirring the pot, so to speak… Overtime she’s become more than just an alt made for special occasions. I kind of grew fond of her (and her silly antics) so have been playing her more. She's available for plots that are consistent with her personality and what not. However, I should note that I, the player of, tend to be very flighty when it comes to long, extended plots, so she's better off for short term deals.

2.- Quite likely. "They're jealous."
3.- Maybe.

4.- She might have missed the 1st FoU Feyiron Chef, I don't remember. But she's been a regular contestant ever since.
5.- Not entirely true:
*5a.- Feyiron Chef doesn't list the order that non-winners came in.
*5b.- The 1st annual Gud Eets ended with all contestants tied for 1st Place, Melenie included. She also came in 3rd Place in the 2nd annual Gud Eets.
6.- Not true. No judges have died, though medical attention was needed in a couple of cases, due to apparent allergic reactions to Extract of Dark Hatred.

7,8.- In improvisational cooking contests, she tries to cook based on her own tastes rather than considering what the judges might like. Opinions on the results have tended towards extremes. In truth, she's neither horrible nor great.
9.- True.
10.- Why would she do that?

-She's a courtesan
-She's suicidal
-She's a runaway slave
-She's wanted for murder in Qeynos
-She has a daughter and an ex-husband

Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But I Want You To Know OOCly):
-Touching any of her scars will set off flashbacks
-She was enslaved for decades by someone - she was told it was orcs, so that's what she believes, but she has so far repressed the memory that she doesn't know who or what.
-She has absolutely no self-esteem left


Wanted:
Anything. Random RP. Blasts from the past. People who recognize her from Qeynos. Intrigue.

Character: Faerlira

Common Rumors:
  • She was booted out of the Concordium for lewd and lascivious conduct
  • She's a secret agent working for the Concordium to monitor activities in New Halas
  • She'll bed anything with a pulse that's around her for more than half an hour or so
  • She's a terrible mage and only got training because someone owed her parents a favor or money
  • Her magic has driven her insane
  • She's a drunkard and a drug addict
  • She's unbeatable at any game of chance, and has been banned from gambling halls as a result
  • Whenever you see her, you're actually just looking at an illusory construct of her
  • Her magic isn't actually illusions, but direct control of reality itself
Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But I Want You To Know OOCly): There's a tiny kernel of truth in some of the above rumours, but most are entirely false. Her wild days as a student in the Concordium have given her a particularly bad reputation, while her ability to extensively discuss metaphysics has convinced some that she has a lot more power than she actually does.

Wanted: Any and all RP, of course! Especially looking for mages to "talk shop" and people with weird and interesting perspectives on the world.

Character: Lady Domnai Gavrelich, daughter of Duke Gavrelich.

Common Rumors:
"I don't know where she came from, but she sure is Daddy's girl. It's daddy this, or daddy that.."

"I'm willin' to bet that if you could steal her underwear, the cloth alone would be worth a new house, or at least a nice new sword.."

"I hear her and her Daddy live out in the Loping Plains, with all them vampires and werewolves and wargs. Not sure why, but It just ain't quite right for a woman like that to live in a place so dark.."

"I hear she's chaste, you know.. No sex, 'cause she's a Priestess and all.."

" I ain't never seen her eat, but she's definitely got curves in all the right places.."

"Sometimes I hear men go into her carriage, and they don't come out.. Or if they do, they end up at her manor chained to the bed posts."

"What's with that servant of hers? He some kind of pushover? Koada'Dal weren't meant to serve other Koada'Dal. Gods."

"I don't think her title's real. I mean, who the hell has heard of a Duke Gavrelich? Where the frack did 'e come from?"

"Folks who ain't got history that's public are dangerous indeed. Where's her mother, and how come she isn't married? A woman like that.."

"She's right desperate, the way she sniffs around at men. Probably ain't ever gotten any, since her father is such a stick in the mud."

"I bet there ain't a damn freckle or scar on that lady, down to her pale ass."

Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But I Want You To Know OOCly):

Some of that is true, not every bit of it is. But there are hints to truth in most of it. She is intentionally hiding things from people, and the rumors speak openly of her avoidance of certain subjects. I will tell people who ask, or who guess as to why.

Wanted: Someone to play her manservant! See thread in the community Roundtable. Also, people who want my evil, chiffon and silk wearing templar to mess with them. More roleplay in general, as always with my characters.

Character:Arch-Duchess Laynisa Onyx Val’Haden

Common Rumors:
In Freeport:
~She’s a well-off citizen, never breaks a law
~She’s been seen murdering lucan officials and paying off any witnesses handsomely.
~Has been seen going in and out of the new portals within the city in a high temper.
~Meets in the Jade tiger with shady individuals
~She’s a bad alcoholic, and tends to head for the nearest bar when she’s under pressure, or stressed
~She buys children from the markets on occasion and usually will intervene when she sees a child being mistreated often with vicious results for the one abusing them.
In Neriak:
~She’s a ‘Blood Spider’, meaning a top assassin. Goes by the alias Lady Onyx
~She has her own House and it’s well guarded magically, and she employs quite the number of guards.
~Has recently killed a rival noble and is avoiding backlash from his family.
~People who go into her Estate as sometimes never seen again, especially ayr’dals, or tier’dals.
~Her slaves that leave the Estate for whatever reason report that she is not a cruel mistress, but that she is indeed a loyal innoruukian.
~She’s a whore who has her own estate due to stealing money
~She’s of well-known noble birth but recently returned to her nobility status due to political intrigue.
~There’s a rumor going around among the D’Morte that she is somehow in friendly standing with mistmoore despite the fact she kills her own kind.
~She’s a little-known decorator, the people who do come out of her estate have said that she has a talent for such.
~It’s been said she buys children from the slavers and keeps them in her estate to be trained and educated as her adopted children.



Stuff You Can't Possibly Know (But I Want You To Know OOCly): ((she does not follow the laws of Freeport as set down by the knights of Freeport, she does kill Lucanic officials, and pays them off to say they saw a human male doing the killing. She is a top assassin in Neriak, but not many would know that about her unless you are a Nerian assassin in good roleplay standing with the ebon mask. People do go into her estate to never come back. She is innoruukian. She is of noble birth but recently recognized. She is in a permanent friendly state with all mistmoorian loyal vampires. She’s a horrible alcoholic, and will resort to drinking when she’s done something she feels guilty about, or feels goes against her morals. She does buy children and trains them, normally elven children, but she has been known to adopt iksars or kerrans. Any slaver who has children on the block usually meets their death shortly after Layn has bought said children, and the deaths tend to be vicious.

Wanted: Random Roleplay, I’m up for anything.
