Hand Of Fate: Ashes Of Amnesty

Who's interested in a game of cards?
Is it you? I hope so. If you've followed my other roleplay “Hand of Fate: Three Aspects” you know I like to do things differently. Instead of the dice your fate is at the mercy of a deck of cards, you pick a color, you pick a number, I pick a card, and the story unfolds accordingly.
 
Some things have changed.
This is going to be less 'Player VS Environment' and more 'Player VS Player'. Don't get me wrong, there will still be things in the wilds out to kill you, but this is a fast-track game meant to pit you against other players. I've overhauled the card draw system, added healing, and refined race/spec traits. This is also going to be a somewhat more fast paced game, so make an effort to check back at least once a day.
 
How does it all work?
Combat remains simple, you get one attack and one defend draw per turn (You ask for 2 cards as opposed to 1). You pick Black or Red, and a card face value. If the card is the same color as your selection you succeed in attacking or defending, if the card is the same color and face value as your selection it's a critical success, likewise an Ace of the color you selected will be an uber critical success . HOWEVER, if it is the color opposite what you've selected you fail (unless your class states otherwise), if it's the same face value as what you selected but the opposite color you fail miserably, usually injuring yourself or breaking a weapon, and if it's an ace of the opposite color a wild monster appears!
 
Other actions revolve around the same system with similar consequences, from crafting, to tree-felling, haggling, and moving from zone to zone.
 
If the joker appears it's instantaneous death UNLESS someone is in your immediate area and can draw to save you.
 
Food, Warmth, and Health.
Food allows you to heal passively for 1HP every three hours that pass. You have to have 5/5 Fullness for your passive regen to work. Likewise if you have 0/5 Fullness you'll lose 1 health point for every hour that passes because you're now starving. You lose 1 Fullness at 6AM, at Noon, at 6PM and Midnight (every six hours in-game).
 
Cold is also a factor in this game, and you have 3/3 warmth! Every 12 hours you're away from a heat source you lose 1 warmth, and once you've reached 0 warmth you start losing 2HP for every hour you're away from heat sources. Make sure you have a tinder box (Good for 3 uses) on you at all times to avoid freezing to death, you can buy one in either city.
 
Everybody starts with 10 health points, shields add an additional 5 health points but can be lost/broken. If you reach 0 HP you're 'Debilitated' and need to either regenerate 1 health point or have someone heal you before you can move again. Once you've reached -1 HP you're dead. You can not reincarnate, but can re-join the game as a new character.
 
Druids can heal you for 3HP free once a day, after that their 'healing magic' is exhausted and will recharge in 24 hours. Apothecaries can be visited and paid to heal you in full, 5HP healing potions are sometimes for sale there, or you could use a cheep triage kit to heal you for 3HP, you can purchase these from anywhere in town. Only the druid's racial heal can be used in combat, all other forms of healing require you to be out of combat.
 
You can flee a battle at the cost of 25% your total gold, or 25% your total resources. If you have neither you can flee a battle at the cost of 3 health.
 
The Story so far!
You start in one of the two kingdoms, Breeon to the North-West or Malorian to the South-East. Each is a beautiful, bustling, wonderful trade city with harbor access, a tavern, an apothecary, A church, a garrison, assorted tradesmiths and vendors, and obviously a main palace with a king.
 
Scavenge goods from different zones before anyone else does and get them to the portals where your guild exchanges them for gold coins. Everything is a resource! Wood, stone, food, minerals, and they're all there for the taking, just make sure you have the right tools, and expect your tools to break after a while. Also don't roll a Guenetian and expect to haul back 6 trees, you're going to need some friends, or a rent-a-cart. Items rank differently depending on their rarity, and you'll be rewarded thusly once you've dropped them off at the portals, or you can sell them in one of the cities for half the reward.
 
The game will go for 10 in-game-days after which PVP and Resource leaders will be published, and the game will begin anew.
 
Map? What map!
This map! Which is conveniently zoned out for my mental health as well as to guide you to prosperity! Each progressive circle has more valuable resources and tougher monsters than the last, and that little circle in the center? That's LITERALLY a gold mine, who knows what you'll find in the hills just outside it?

Each zone will require you to traverse it before you can reach the next, obviously the thicker zones take a little while longer, but all you have to tell me is which direction your character is traveling and I'll take care of the rest! You can even scavenge along the way!
 
I want to make a character!
Fill this out and post it in an OOC below! Game starts Wednesday April 22! (You can still join after then though!)

Is the 3 aspects game shutting down then?

 

Three aspects is still going. This one is just going to be less story driven so when they have, or want to take breaks, they can do it in a dark tavern corner and not slow down gameplay. (Protip: You go AFK in the wilds, you will die.)

From Confessor to Frostweaver!

The Church does not fear the Hunger. We recognise its holiness, and do not attempt to stop its righteous destruction. Our duty is simply to save what is pure, and allow the Hunger to consume the rest. The Hunger did not kill mighty Valkyn. Nothing can kill the King of Gods. It is his agent of cleansing, and so we worship it as we do him. In reality, we walk the same route, just different paths. A coin has two faces.

(OOC Tobias Arlore is the city blacksmith, you could see if he had an apprenticeship perhaps? He's a wily old centaur that plays like hes a hard sell but the truth is he's got a big soft-spot for real smiths in a bind, so if you strike up a conversation, throw a few terms around, he might be able to help you out ;). Then there's "old" Thode, the stoneborn blacksmith over in Breeon, he could always use a hand, he's only got two of them and is more apt to complain about the fact than actually work. )

Orin slammed the door shut behind him, angrily tugging on his orange beard and furrowing his brow. The city blacksmith clearly had no idea what he was talking about. A centaur... Like Orin would have anything to do with those four hoofed unnaturals! No items of TRUE quality had hung on the walls anyway. He had come all this way for nothing...

 

Well perhaps not NOTHING... That smithy had said something about some "old Thode" character in Breeon... But that was a world away.

 

"This Tobias might be my only hope," he thought glumly.

"A strong drink'll clear me mind anyway."

 

He departed in search for a tavern.

It's not city VS city, it's every man for himself. You can buddy up to someone if you want, travel in a team, or hire someone to ruin someone elses day. I thought about making it City VS City for a while, but then was like "Passhaw, that's no fun." It worked out though, cause it if WERE City VS City poor Seren would be screwed.

Look at it this way. Everyone would have to travel 4 days to be able to get to you, you could have harvested all that lovely stuff with zero contest :D
