Hello? Is anybody there?
If you're there, say something. Show yourself.
Thus do the voices of mortals plead,
Ever hopeful of proof of our existence...
For how long have we watched over their realm...?
For how long have we Celestrians existed...?
Sentinels of the Starry Skies
Long ago the Almighty created mortal humans. He was disgusted at their envy, lust, hatred, gluttony, and how the creatures around them reacted. He created Celestrians, assigning them to towns to watch over the mortals residing in them. The Celestrians thrive in The Observatory, a large tower hovering in the sky, that is invisible to mortals. Celestrians, like The Observatory, cannot be seen by human eyes, but mortals do know of the Celestrians. Statues of Celestrians are littered about the world in towns with the names of the Celestrians engraved into them.
This particular roleplay basically revolves around the Dragon Quest IX storyline, but the main character, Aquila, Columnba, Apus Major, Corvus, and the other named Celestrians have never existed. The character I conjure will lead The Observatory in Apus Major's style so any missions into the Protectorate (DQ IX Earth) will need to be approved by me first. The towns and their locations in Dragon Quest IX are the same here, and the same monsters still thrive, which means the Celestrians watching over a particular town will need to defeat the monsters that threaten it. GROTTOES DO NOT EXIST!
But how do you defeat those pesky monsters? Well your character will always wear their designated
celestial garb and one beginning weapon of your choice. Your character will have access to all the skills associated with that particular weapon. But how do you buy weapons? There will be a shop in the Observatory that will be run by a character who signs up to be it that you can buy stuff from. Everyone is considered to be at level 99. You can choose any of the vocations to start out with. There will also be another character who signs up who acts as a pseudo-Jack of Alltrades persona.
I will act as a Reactive Game Master, which basically means you, the people participating, will post a post and I will "react" by finishing your post. Try not to post super long posts for the reason prior, but do make them lengthy and juicy enough for me to "react" to. I will try to post everyday to "react" to the participants' posts. I have a life too, so don't get angry at me forgetting to "react" one day.
Follow the general Dragon's Den rules
No bunnying, godmodding, mary sues, etc.
Posts must be at least 200 words minimum
No swearing. We're supposed to be an angelic race, mind you.
Correct grammar would be much appreciated
Relationships are allowed but no suggestive actions
Backround of playing Dragon Quest IX storyline isn't required but it would help much
Name: Simple enough. It'd be lovely if you could make their names star-related though. ;3
Gender: Male or Female. Speaks for itself.
Age: Keep in mind that a NPC in the canon game said that one of the younger Celestrians is 300 years old. You could always say something like chronologically 700, but physically nineteen.
Appearance: Two hefty paragraphs here. Include what their Celestrial garb looks like too.
Personality: Two hefty paragraphs here also.
History: Three hefty paragraphs here. Histories play a huge part in how characters react to different environments. ;3
Town they Protect: Pick one that hasn't already been chosen.
Vocation: Y'know the drill. If you wish to be the Vocation Changer or Shop Keeper you can say so here. If I accept you, I will PM you the details of the job.
Starting Weapon: You know the drill.
Sign-Ups are OPEN
My character is currently pending.
