The Journey Begins
Born in a small village, on the shores of the Dragon Sea, Jagroth was raised by a pious and superstitious community rich with culture, but poor in material goods. This was largely due to the fact that the village was plagued by the marauding pirates who took great joy in traveling the coast and raiding the peaceful fishing towns periodically. Jagroth's kin would make offerings to the Storm Lord Aberdour that they worshiped, for protection, and their faith was strong, even when the weather seemed to favor the raiding ships more often than not. Jagroth's parents were simple folk, his mother a Jotun refugee, escaping from the vile ways of her kin and his father a humble Storm Giant. They raised him with strong morals and a sense of stewardship for those who had less. His father was the local priest, more of a tribal shaman really, who believed that if they stood as a village, performed the proper ritual, and made sacrifices to the Storm, the habitat would remain safe. He was grooming Jagroth to take his place when he died, as the spiritual leader of the village. A natural born leader, Jagroth knew that if his village ever hoped to experience long-lasting peace, they would have to do more than pray. His faith was strong, but so was his arm, and it didn't take long for him and a number of other young men to adapt their fishing spears to pierce the crude armor worn by the marauding pirates. They made a plan, and prepared themselves, floating just beneath the waves as the sun sank into the ocean. The dhow, its crude colors snapping in the breeze, approached the small village silently, the evil men on board fingering their blades as they prepared to ransack the unprepared, undefended village. Or so they thought. Suddenly, the ocean seemed to explode around them as the group of storm giants led by Jagroth the half-breed suddenly sprung from the water, clambering over the railings and onto the deck of the ship, swarming the surprised pirates, who fell, staining the planks red with their tainted blood. As calm returned to the ship, the only sound was the lapping of the waves on the gunwale and the heavy breathing of the villagers who had finally stood up to their opressors. Then, cheers erupted from the village proper as the people realized that their plan had succeeded. Standing at the helm, Jagroth offered a silent prayer to Aberdour, the Storm Lord, giving thanks for the brisk wind that had risen to blow away the scent of death and replace it with fresh smell of brine. Then, a thought struck him. He turned around, grinning down at the ragtag group of fishermen standing on the deck of the small, but well-equipped ship. His gaze took in the sails, snapping crisply in the offshore wind, and he reveled in the sound. This was his ship, now. And he would no longer spend his days casting his net. He would become a fisher of men, as his Father hoped for, but not in the sense that his father had expected. He dedicated his life to forge his body into a weapon of the Storm, he shaped his dedication to channel the ways of Light and inspire the faithful.


Description (commended):

A grey-bearded mountain of a man stands before you, his broad shoulders undiminished by his advancing age, rising and falling with each huge intake of breath. His skin, blue as the depths of the ocean, looks weathered and rough, white ridges of myriad scars like whitecaps upon the wind-tossed sea. His eyes, oddly pale in juxtaposition with his dark complexion are the silver-gray of the sky after a storm, with flecks of blue that make them seem to shimmer in the ambient light. The coarse growth of beard that covers his chin in a rugged fashion has shades of gray peppered with black throughout. Although his formidable stature does not seem to lack uncanny grace and power, he is poised with a sense of prudence and wisdom uncommon in younger men.

  1. I grew seriously bored of this char, first char after a loooooong time and mainly used to practice some PK. Should have not made a Knight, was not very motivated to keep going considering my last char was pretty much the same.

    Sorry to disappoint, just couldn't develop a decent story and future for this character. Wanted to turn evil and join Legion, but I realized that this character was not meant to last in the first place.

    Will roll something more complex RP-wise. Hate this cheesy stuff that I went with.
    1. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    2. I literally just waisted countless real life hours writing your story and you deleted....i am so mad.
    3. Even if the char is gone, the material you wrote can still be used. You only have to snip it somewhere and move the tone to something more final (his tragic "Permadeath") or just funnel the end of what you have into narrative with dirge-sounding connotations. Just take a breather and come back to it when you're up to it, Buxiz.

      Sorry to see you go, Jagroth.

      1. right im fuckin pissed why waist so many peoples time to delete not even 24 hrs later, smoke weed my ass i get high everyday you don't see me acting like a retard. grrrrr
      [reply to Sevaush]
    2. you fukin junkie!

      1. I have no idea what's going on these comments..
        1. In short, it looks like Jagroth's player was high and deleted Jagroth. His high came down two hours later and he expressed regret under a different name. Other comments reflect the distaste of players having invested time and RP into the character that was deleted. Buxiz is a Herald. Heralds are a quill-and-parchment oriented coterie, so Buxiz was writing about Jagroth IC. These writings get published in-game and later on the website as the "Serin Mystique."

          I think Xabiino was attempting to diffuse the tension with his post.

      2. Complete trash of a player and wasted tons of time for nothing, crappy job man.

          Ok guys, so I think it became pretty obvious it was me because the character was so similar to Taganoth... One specific Justice even called me Jaganoth and then I realized I had rolled a character with RP and PK way too close to my last char.

          Buxiz: Enjoyed the time we spent, sorry for bailing.

          Sevaush: Sorry for letting you down, but I realized that when Nycticora is going to check the account this char is tied to, he will realize its me and will just straight fuck me up with char deny or denies the conversion anyway, because we all know that he hates me.

          To all the rest: I only came back to have some fun with PK and maybe spice things up a little in otherwise Legion-controlled state that it used to be. Was fun playing with you all again.

          Until next time (perhaps)!

          Just like with Taganoth I feel that Jagroth was:

          1) Kicking ass and taking names
          2) Fun to fight beside and fight against
          3) Adding a great amount of balls to the wall spice to Serin
          4) Deleted way way too early
          5) Likely to get denied if Nycticora noticed who it was :P

            i'm going to miss the logged adventures of yoloknight
              [reply to Vanisse]
            1. I thought most of your fights were epic, and all of your logs enjoyable. even though the use of the term yolo leaves a shitty taste in my mouth lol. As long as you don't break the rules I would consider you a good addition to the game
