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.

Ila looked up at Sarah from her position on the floor. "But i don't have milk." Or a mother to offer it. She turned her attention to the infant again, his breathing barely audible. "What's wrong with him?" She asked.

(I'm assuming so. Haha I'm in the same boat as you.)

Sarah looked down at them sadly. "There is a sickness in his lungs, and he is malnourished," she replied softly, then looked away again. "He might still make it... But he might not."

Raven glanced between and frowned. They couldn't be too late. They couldn't.

Sapphire bit her bottom lip at that and sighed. She prayed, hoping the baby will make it, he was too young to die in her eyes.

Ila nodded slowly, though she didn't understand a word Sarah had said. She just knew it didn't sound good. Instead of a working what it meant, she turned her head to look at Raven. "Have you got any more food?"

Raven nodded and smiled slightly. "Plenty," he replied. "Be right back." He tossed her another roll, then went to find more filling food in the tavern. 

Sarah watched him go, then turned her attention back to the children, offering her hand. "Come, get off the floor," she said.

Sapphire went with Raven to help him find the food. Seeing the sick infant reminded her of her own siblings and didn't want the girl to go through the heartbreak of losing one.

Ila couldn't reach the roll from where she was sitting, so she took Sarah's hand with her left hand and used it to pull herself off the floor. The weight of Damon almost made her lose her balance but she managed to correct herself in time before stooping down to grab the roll off the floor.

Sarah helped them up and to one of the small beds used by patients, watching the infant quietly. 

Raven ran a hand through his hair as they walked. "Well, think he'll make it?" he asked after a moment.

Sapphire sighed "To be honest I don't know, I pray that he does." She then grabbed his hand and gave it a reassuring squeeze "You did the best you could, at least you got him here."

Raven nodded slightly, though he looked unconvinced. "We should have been able to find them sooner," he muttered, heading into the bustling kitchen. Since he technically owned the place, that wasn't a problem. He glanced around, then picked up a bowl of steaming soup.

"Raven we didn't even know about her situation until we followed her." She grabbed some apples and some water "Don't beat yourself up, please." She said before she kissed his cheek gently and left the kitchen.

Ila hopped up onto the bed, then with a gasp, she hopped off again. She set Damon on it and poked the bedding with a finger. "It's soft!" She turned to Sarah, eyes fill of wonder.

Raven blushed slightly at the kiss, but seemed to relax a bit. He followed Sapphire back to the infirmary, careful not to spill any of the soup. 

Sarah chuckled softly, though there was a sad note to it. The poor girl clearly had been in a real bed for quite some time, if ever. "Yes, it is. That's how beds are supposed to be. Go on, sit. Lay down if you wish," she replied.

Sapphire went into the infirmary with Raven. She went over to the girl with a smile "Here's some water and apples."

Raven brought over the soup and a spoon to eat it with. "Careful, it's hot," he warned lightly, smiling kindly.

Whatever the court ladies might think of her, Vivian Ashdown had always been very careful never to make a scandal. Such a thing would lose her all honor in the court. And all use in the Cloak. It was enough that Chim's father still hated her – but he hated enough people, especially women, that that was hardly something to worry about. In fact, it was almost helpful, as so many people hated Lord Brand – not because of his views, oh no. That was the reason they hated his disowned son. But if you have power, then some will curry favor with you. Those who can't will doubtless despise you.

Vivian – dressed tonight in a daring red dress with a high, wide neck and a low, open back, upon which the hand of her partner, the Earl Victor Margas, rested – swirled among the throng filling the ballroom. She gave him her most bewitching smile even as she recoiled inside. Earl Margas has values similar to those of Lord Brand. And oh, was he happy to talk about them – and not give a bit of useful information, mind you. He seemed to think that his cruelty was impressive. He had a point, actually. It just didn't impress her the way he was hoping. She simply had to take control of the conversation. Or stop dancing with him and explore Gurney Keep a bit. Something.

Finally, she extracted herself from his grip, ignoring the urge to wipe her back – the Earl, for all his prestige, had quite clammy palms. As Lady Ashdown had mastered the art of moving through a crowded ballroom in full skirts, she had no difficulty in finding her way to the wall. She began to circle the room, offering the occasional smalltalk to her peers. This kept her a part of the party while at the same time giving her space to breathe. Next time she corresponded with the Cloak, she was going to tell them they'd best think about raiding House Margas.

Ila jumped back on the bed, savouring the warmth it brought and snuggled up close to Damon, wrapping her arms around him protectively.
She shot up when Sapphire and Raven returned, crossing her legs beneath her. "For me?" She asked wide eyed, already reaching out for the food.

Sapphire chuckled softly "Yes for you." She said as she handed her the food. Glad the girl was eager to eat.

Raven chuckled softly and nodded. "Yes, of course it's for you," he replied, handing her the bowl of soup. 

Sarah looked at the food critically. "Don't eat too much too fast," she warned.

Ila took the soup, though hesitantly, abandoning the spoon and tilted the bowl to her mouth to drink it. She paused in her endeavours to look at Sarah.  "Why not?"

Sarah sighed. "You'll get yourself sick. A stomach-ache at least, if not losing some of it," she replied sternly. 

Raven made a face and nodded slightly in agreement. "Not a pleasant experience," he added. "So savor it and don't stuff yourself. There'll be more later."

Sick from eating too quickly?  That was news to her. Ila followed Sarah's demands at first, taking a gulp of soup though some dribbling down her chin and onto the rags she passed off as clothes. Once she got a taste of the delicious lquid, she drank the rest as if she wouldn't get anymore for a long while despite their promises. "Is there any more?" She asked, gazing up at them once she had finished, though didn't expect to receive any more.

Raven smirked slightly and nodded. "Of course there is. Didn't you listen?" he replied, his tone light. After a glance at Sarah, he added, "Though perhaps we wait a bit for that to settle."

Sarah nodded curtly, then looked back at the baby, trying to judge if he had gotten any better or worse.
