The Golden Lamp
Recca is the middle child of one of the wealthiest blueblood families of Valour. Being less trusted than her elder brother, and less pampered than her younger brother, envy and shame were given a deep root. While her brothers received education, attention and praise, the neglected Recca began to dabble in the occult, steadily acquiring an expansive knowledge about a great many artifacts that would often pass through her family's possession. Such as the spear named Khizarizia, rumored to be the spear that slew Arboran. Nobody in her family gave this trivia much attention, just donating to the military, but Recca's occult studies taught her that whoever wields the spear may be blessed favorably in battle by Immortals, leading her to doubt the righteousness of the Light, since she could just wield it herself. Of special interest to Recca was the ancient inscription upon her golden lamp, a lost artifact of the Taekir War, which she longed to understand. Eventually, Recca became a child bride, an arranged matter of political convenience, and was forbidden from reading forever. Because of her father's political status, an assassin's bounty was placed on the patriarch's head, and the family was hidden by the Knights of Valour for their safety. But Recca had long concealed an even darker secret - her yearning for the occult. She had turned to evil. Without hesitation, she betrayed the location of her family to the Legion of Darkness. Her family were whisked off to the Legions slave camps. A lack of evidence prevented anyone from discovering her betrayal, and the Legionnaire that captured her family was hunted and killed by the Knights, so she got away cleanly with her treachery. Most importantly, she was rewarded with the golden lamp she had long coveted, along with twelve paintings of mass murderers. Recca's ambition is to now furnish a dark crypt with as much ancient treasure as she can, legitimizing her own new order of nobility, while her precious lamp remains hidden in a place only she knows.


Unpretty would be an accurate word to describe this gaunt, bald creature. Its wide black wings flag give it a passing resemblence to a vulture, each wrapped around a rather malnourished frame of fiery red feathers. Some loose patches of flesh are aggressively losing a battle with a rotting wound that has been opened with a blade, the wound oozing a poisonous looking mixture of foul green and sour yellow. Feeble arms extend themselves into a set of short sharpened talons, while its legs demonstrate muscularity, being far shapelier than its neglected upper body. A watchful head is hanged upon an unusually long neck, jutting out too far forwards, and flicking itself volatiley into confusing alignments. Its fleeting eyes are non-matching shades of green and blue, each filled with pain, bloodshot and fear. A cluster of small markings that look like puncture wounds crowd the inner right forearm, all of them just underneath the elbow.

      Wow those were really cool backgrounds! I get the feeling that it would have been great to interact with you. I mean...I’m sure we would have fought but I also get the feeling we would have had some interesting conversation as well.

  2. Dogran sings “Aaaaall by myseeeeeeeelf... don’t wanna be.... aaaaall by myseeeeeeeelf anymooooooore”

      Dogran has "Another one bites the dust" by Queen on permanent loop.
    3. I just picture him sitting in the cabal all alone crying. “Is it me? Is it something I said??”

      Definitely the smell and lack of harassment in the workplace. A proper evil empire needs lots of harassment
    5. Hey now, there is definitely lots of harassment...
    6. No. It was a really simple reason for delete, and you're it.

      Seems like a lot of work to throw by the wayside, and your last post makes it seem like a character is the reason??? Odd, I give less than one tenth of the fucks you gave into character background, yet I will not let go of a character because there was a character I could not bear to play with. Personal preferences, I suppose.
    9. Well that's helpful, care to elaborate? Or are you salty about the minion duel?
    10. No, no.. Its got nothing to do with Dogran. That's the best Forsaken. I was referring to the circle jerk.
    11. What circle jerk? Did you get attacked by a gaggle of goods? Seems like an evil char would be the best thing to play if you want to mess up those goods...
    12. I was referring to you. You are the player that trained everybody its OK to quit out.
    13. I am so confused...
    14. Who, me? I really don’t understand...

      "You are the player that trained everybody its OK to quit out." This statement is giving someone hella credit. The statement assumes that a player can "..train.." "everybody". Damn! Also, quitting instead of fighting or dying has been around since PK has. Since then, each person has their own choice on how to view it. Shit, viewpoint is everything. (To a warlord a gyvel is no good, but MAGICALLY, smoking something that cures you is not magic!?!?!) Back to point at hand, deleted a lot of background work because you thought someone was trying to enable an action you deem not OK? Interesting way to get that changed. Isn't deleting the ultimate quit out?

  3. Anyways, I liked Recca and I hoped to see more from them. Their attitude and roleplay was really interesting, and although we interacted little I hoped for more. Pity, but good luck with the next.
