The Cloak (Robin-Hood-esque RP; Players Needed!)

Post by Maela on Wed Dec 09, 2015 12:28 pm

First topic message reminder :

A raven's feather. A mysterious warning. Missing food, articles of clothing, money, and a few objects of value. What does this mean? You have been targeted by the Cloak. Be prepared to be stolen from for the rest of your life, or change your ways for the better. 

The Cloak is a guild of thieves, spies, and artisans dedicated to equality for all. This expansive guild steals from the cruel wealthy and gives to the deserving poor; a tradition passed down and improved on for generations. They choose their targets with care, and the artisans alter all stolen items beyond recognition. At the head of the Cloak is the one and only Raven Hood, King of Thieves, the Hood of the Cloak. 

Yet the world is against them. Raven's "naughty list" grows longer than his "nice list" daily. The upper classes naturally don't appreciate the Cloak's deeds. The guards are constantly at their backs, but Raven always finds an escape. How long can this continue? With society as it stands against you, how can you survive? Where will you stand?

 THE FOLLOWING IS ONLY KNOWN TO CLOAK MEMBERS. It's a secret, that they should know.
Cloak Members Read This:
The Cloak base is comprised of two buildings and an underground system of tunnels. The buildings are open to the public. The smaller of the two is a shop to sell the altered goods. The larger one, the main base, is a tavern, inn, and orphanage all rolled into one. Tavern on the first floor. Inn on the next few floors (with lodging available for anyone who needs it), orphanage on the top few floors. On the second floor of the tavern/inn is a bookshelf. On this bookshelf is a collection of various scrolls and books, as well as one special book. The special book triggers a magic door to open behind the bookshelf, leading to a staircase and the secret part of the base where loot is stored, raids are planned, thieves live, etc. However, only someone who is part of the guild, can enter. For anyone who isn't part/doesn't know about it, the special book is just a book. For anyone who means harm to the guild, it will seem to burn them. And yes, Raven is still very uncomfortable around it and it still gives him the heebie jeebies, but he tolerates it for the most part.



Rules:
1. No OP, gming, autohitting, etc. Everyone wants to be powerful, but balance yourself. 
2. Romance is fine, but don't go into detail. Use timeskips for strong sexual content. (See Roleplay Guidelines)
3. To be honest, I don't care if you swear. But to keep with the Forum Rules, please only show the first letter of stronger swear words, followed by ***. 
4. Gore is fine, just don't go overboard with it. 
5. Decent bios; use complete sentences in at least appearance, personality, and history. No perfect bios. You have three chances. Use the bio skeleton.
6. Do your best to use proper grammar and spelling, and try to have detailed posts. Use "..." for talking, Italics for mental speech/thinking, and (...) for out of character. 
7. ABSOLUTELY NO TEXT TALK
8. No killing without permission. 
9. This is MEDIEVAL FANTASY. No modern clothes, weapons, etc. 
10. Try to even out the genders and roles. I doubt I'll get them perfectly even, but I will put more limits if we seem to be getting to many of one role (ie thieves). 
11. Put "Justice" in other section of the bio skeleton if you have read everything. 
12. YOU MUST BE ACCEPTED BEFORE YOU START RPING. 
13. Any questions, just ask. I prefer if you use the OOC, since there's a chance someone else might have a similar question, but you may use the chatbox or PM.

Sapphire nodded in agreement and looked over at Sarah. "Has he gotten better?" She asked worriedly.

Ila nodded her understanding. She was used to not eating for days, though it was more difficult to steal food when there was a danger of her fainting. Even when she did find food, it was rarely a big meal, mostly plucked from the waste of taverns.
"Damon okay?" She asked when the healer was staring at him.

Sarah gently picked up the baby, checking his pulse and breathing. A frown creased her features. He wasn't better. She closed her eyes for a moment, forcing herself to relax and think. 

Raven looked over at them worriedly. "What's wrong?" he asked quietly.

Ila looked between the two of them, her stomach clenching in knots at their sombre expressions. She jumped up, having to pause and lean on the bed as a wave of dizziness passed through her, though she was used to it and carried on as if nothing happened.
She stopped in front of Sarah, her hands ready to take her brother from the healer if she showed any signs of doing anything but helping him.

Sarah looked at the girl silently, her gaze sorrowful and troubled, then turned her attention back to the baby. She picked up the bottle from before and dribbled a few drops onto the baby's lips, hoping he would swallow.

Ila watched quietly while the healer worked, chewing on her fingernails. "How did he get sick?" She asked eventually, the question having bugged her ever since she realised the symptoms weren't common for a baby.

Sarah shook her head slightly. "There are many ways. Possibly from the cold and other poor conditions outside. Perhaps his lungs were weak to begin with," she replied, seeming distracted as she tried to help the baby.

Sapphire was feeling very anxious for the baby. Grabbing Raven's hand and squeezing it lightly without realizing it.

She hesitated for a moment before asking, "Do I have it?" Ila was watching her brother for any signs of life, her expression drawn, her voice quiet.

Raven squeezed back, watching them quietly yet nervously. 

Sarah smiled sadly. "Only a touch. With some of that tea daily, you'll be healthy in no time." The same couldn't be said about Damon. She sighed and looked down at the still infant.

Ila took Damon from the arms of Sarah,  noting his decrease in health. "You're making him worse," she muttered accusingly, cradling the tiny infant protectively.

Sarah narrowed her eyes slightly, but let her take the baby. "I am doing all I can to help him," she said crossly. "That doesn't mean it will work, but it will slow the decline in health at least a little. Unless you wish him to be out of his misery?"

"Sarah!" Raven hissed, shocked and still afraid for the baby. "Be gentle."

Sapphire looked at the girl "She's not making him worse, she's doing the best she can but time was not on our side..."

Ila didn't flinch at Sarah's words - she was used to it. "He's not getting better!" Her voice wasn't loud, but it was louder than her usual tone.

Sarah sighed. "We are too late to make him better. I am doing my best, and that is all," she stated. 

Raven but his lip and looked away. Too late. The words echoed in his head.

Sapphire closed her eyes  when Sarah said those words. She shook her head, upset that they were too late.

"He can't die!" At that she broke down, collapsing onto the soft bed and curling up around her dying brother. Tears saturated the surface of the mattress as she hugged him close to her, as if contact will heal him. The room echoed with the sobs of a little girl with nothing left

Raven stepped forward and wrapped his arms around the sobbing girl in a tender embrace. "I'm so sorry," he said quietly. "So sorry." He waited a moment before continuing, "Sarah's right, you know. About him going to a better place. There's no one more innocent than a baby, surely he'll go straight to heaven. And we'll take care of you, if you'll let us. You won't need to worry about food anymore."

Sapphire went over to the girl and sighed softly. "I know what it's like to lose a family member, I promise the pain will get easier."

Ila shook her head. She didn't believe in a god - if there was one, she was sure he wouldn't allow the death of her family.
The girl pulled herself out from Raven's embrace, Damon in her arms,  the sympathy and contact overwhelming her when she was in such a state. Her vision clouded with tears and her head swam from standing so quickly. "Get away," she whispered pathetically, swaying on her feet.

Raven took a step away, then took her arm gently to keep her from falling. "Anything you need, just come to us," he said, his gaze sincere though pained. 

Sarah was preparing more herbs, upset that she hadn't been able to help but not wanting the others to notice.

The drama of the day exhausted Ila and, although she regretted to take her eyes of her lifeless sibling in a building full of strangers, she recognised when she had to sleep, even through the view of shock and grief that currently clouds her mind.
The small bundle grew heavy in her weak arms and, in fear of dropping him, she sat on the bed again.

Raven smiled wanly and let go of her arm. "Stay as long as you wish," he offered gently, then took a few steps away to give her space. 

Sarah wiped her eyes on the back of her sleeve and remained silent.

Sapphire rubbed Raven's arm gently "We should probably get going, to give her some time alone so she clould grieve in peace" she said quietly but in a sad tone.
