  What now?
Posted by: Luthien Vogeler - 6 hours ago - Forum: The Wandering Moon Inn - No Replies

Luthien was sitting by the fire in the common room of the inn, nursing a mug of the very tasty beer, and working on sharpening her knives. Arjay had promised to help her find possible Companions for the Quest, and one of them was supposed to be arriving to meet with her today. All she knew was that his name was Steve, and that he was a boon companion of Arjay's, which was more than enough to recommend him in Luthien's view.

Besides, she thought with a little sigh of frustration, it wasn't as though she was any closer to knowing what, precisely, her Quest was. Well, that wasn't precisely true, she knew that she was supposed to take the Sword of the Lady to its resting place, so as to diminish the power of the Sword, making it something that a mere mortal could carry more easily and where it would be safe until The Sword was needed again. She just didn't know where that was, and at the moment, it appeared that the Sword wasn't telling her.

Hopefully this was because her Fellowship was as yet incomplete, and once the Companions were assembled she would find out the full nature of the Quest. In the meantime.....

Well, she couldn't deny that the Inn of the Wandering Moon was pleasant and comfortable, and a good place to rest and make sure that her gear was in good repair before she set out on what would doubtless be a difficult and perilous journey.

There had been a flash of light, and a searing pain, like nothing she'd ever felt, like nothing she'd ever heard of, except in the stories that she'd heard about the Change, and the grim days that had followed. And then.....

She'd been standing near Lost Lake, holding the Sword of the Lady in her hand. It had seemed almost anti-climactic, after she'd traveled to the site in secrecy, the first person in centuries who wasn't the High King or the High Queen to be allowed to reach the Lake. Who had been allowed to touch the Sword of the Lady, or at least part of it. The part that existed beyond time and space.

It had seemed odd, then, that she was in the same place that she'd been in before she'd touched the Sword. So she'd started hiking out, which had been a trivial task for a battle hardened, fully trained member of the Dunedain Rangers.

Those were the same skills that had allowed her to notice the subtle changes in the terrain and vegetation that told her that this was not the Crown Forest Demense, nor any place in that part of Montival.

The same finely honed skiils, she thought with an ironic smile, allowed her to identify the inn that was in front of her. It wasn't one she'd seen when she'd traveled on the caravan routes as an ohtar-the Dunedain equivalent of a squire-, before the War. But she recognized the type. She could picture the common room, the rough wooden tables, the beer, the bowls of...yes, that was stew, venison, with some vegetables her nose spotted. Still, it seemed to be in good repair, which made her hopeful that the beer wouldn't be sour, and that the beds wouldn't have her scratching fleas and picking lice for a fortnight.

And a place like this was always a good place to get information, so she headed inside and walked up to the bar. "A pint of beer, goodman." she said politely, using the honorific common in Association territories. She looked around the room, surveying the scene in front of her.

distinguishing features: None
relationships
sexual orientation: Pansexual
family: Twin sister Elanor, younger sister Melian, younger brothers Faramir and Theoden. Parents Ritva and Morfind. Husband, Beren (deceased)
relationship status: Widowed
Powers/Strengths/Weakness
powers: Luthien has been trained in scouting, stealth, and “sentry removal”. Her ability to track and watch someone unobserved are the results of long training, and only seem to be supernatural. She is also a skilled rider, swordswoman and archer.
strengths:
In addition to her martial skills, Luthien is educated in the history of both the Third and Fourth ages of Middle Earth. She is brave and determined, and has a strong sense of honor and duty.

weaknesses:Luthien is from an Earth in which the laws of physics have been altered so that the electrical power, steam power and chemical reactions that make industrial and post industrial life possible no longer work. In addition, she was raised in a culture that was deliberately modeled on the works of Tolkien. As a result, her view of the world will seem eccentric to many, and although she’s aware of pre-Change technology, its only in theory, and as history.
equipment:
Armor, bow, short sword, knives,garrote, backpack with basic camping gear (including lembas), and The Sword of The Lady.
history
Luthien was born almost 500 years after The Change-an event that altered the several fundamental natural laws in such a way that electricity, internal combustion engines and gunpowder don’t work, and even steam power is remarkably less efficient. The Change was caused by the Light, in a last, desperate throw to avoid a future in which the powers of Darkness would create a world in which the Earth was almost devoid of life, with the few human survivors twisted beyond all recognition. This struggle continued after the Change, and many assumed that in the wars that were fought in the century after the Change, the forces of Darkness had been defeated.

In reality, the Darkness was just biding its time. Waiting for a chance to strike, putting everything on this last, final strike. As had happened centuries before, a cult grew, its leader a servant of the Darkness. Whispers grew that there was a king in what had been Mexico City who was bringing back the old days of conquest and human sacrifice. Whispers that were confirmed when Montivallan allies in what had been southern Arizona and northern Mexico sent back reports of trading caravans being attacked, the survivors taken off to be used as sacrifices.

Once the rumors were confirmed, the High Kingdom of Montival and their allies went to war. As they had since the Quest for the Sword of the Lady, the Dunedain Rangers sent their Rangers to stand by the High King, to serve as scouts and assassins, what the Ancients would have called ‘special ops”. Among the Rangers were Luthien Vogeler, and her newly married husband, Beren Fernandez. The War of the Jaguar went on for five long years, and many brave warriors fell, including Beren, who died on a raid to free captives intended for sacrifice.

Finally, the war was over, and in the end the forces of Light were triumphant. Now, the Earth would be able to go on its own path, without the direct intervention of either the Light or the Darkness. No longer would the mortal realm be a battle-ground for cosmic forces.

And Luthien Voegler was given a final task. The ruler of Montival was the bearer of the Sword of the Lady, a mystic weapon not quite of this world. The Sword gave the power to free those possessed by the Darkness from their thrall, to speak all the languages of Montival, to see things far distant, to know if someone spoke truth or lies, a sword that could cleave through solid rock, that would annihilate anyone who tried to steal it, but would not cut a child who innocently grabbed the naked blade. A Sword that existed simultaneously as a blade carried by the High King or High Queen, and was also embedded in a stone near a lake, where the rulers of Montival became one with the land. More than once, the Sword of the Lady had been needed to defeat the forces of Darkness, but carrying such a mighty weapon had been a heavy burden for the ruler, and more often than not the High Kings and Queens of Montival died in battle, or by mischance. Now, it was time for the Sword of the Lady to become less than it had been. It would now be a thing of this world, something that could be carried by mortal men and women.

And so Luthien travelled to the Lake, and drew the Sword of the Lady from the stone, knowing only that she was to carry it to its ultimate destination. As she drew the Sword, there was a flash of light.

And she was in the Hub.

Darkwing was no stranger to the strange, wasn’t weirded out by the weird, but even he had to admit this bazaar was bizarre. A magical pointy-eared hooman who, thank the heavenly mallard, had the key to getting him back to his own zany yet comfy universe; a real estate office kept by none other than Death herself; and then there was the place advertising a peeking duck and what he’d seen in there… Jehoshaphat, not a single duck peering out from a hiding place anywhere. Nope, at Hung Far Low the only ducks they had had peeked their last peeks some time ago. Looking in there had given him goosebumps. Or duck-bumps rather.

And now he needed a distraction. Anything to distract him from that foul fowl scene inside the restaurant. Shivering he putted his motorcycle down the street, pulling up in front of a shop with an exciting facade and the words Fantastic Fulminations on the outside.

“Sounds like my kind of establishment,” he said to nobody in particular as he parked his bike and sauntered inside. “Hello!” he called out as the shop bell announced his entrance. “The name’s Darkwing Duck, I’m new to these parts, and I’m wondering if you might furnish me with something fantabulous and fiery, something to flatten the feathers of any foul fiend.” He leaned against the countertop, flicking his hat with one hand to give it a cocky tilt and instead managing to flop it onto the floor. Shaking his head as if at a misbehaving dog he flipped the hat back up with one of his feet, caught it with one hand, and then tossed it back on his head. Or toward his head. It went flying across the room instead and he ignored it as if he’d intended this the entire time.

“What sort of fulminations do you have, friend?”

canon or oc: canon
anchor character: yes
species:

gender: male
age: 18
date of birth: Unknown.
place of birth: Unknown.
starting location: Hub.
originating fandom: Voltron
fandom universe:Voltron Legendary Defender, Netflix series 2015, 2016
pronouns: He/Him
occupation: Pilot, Rogue, Paladin of the Red Lion
languages: English
appearance
playby: Takeru Satoh

weight: 130
hair color: Dark brown.
eye color: Brown
distinguishing features: Strong but lithe, sharp facial features, shaggy hair that is always perfectly out of place.
relationships
sexual orientation: Gay
family: Raised an orphan.
relationship status: Single
Powers/Strengths/Weakness
powers:

strengths: Keith is a fierce, focused, and yet flexible fighter. He’s a highly skilled intuitive pilot who was at the top of his class in the Academy before he got expelled for bad behavior. He has a sharp sense of wit, but doesn’t always get other people’s jokes. Keith’s fierce loyalty (he’s fierce by the way) drives him to throw his life on the line to help others.
weaknesses: His ferocity and focus make him come across as hot-headed and self-absorbed, and up to a point he is both. He is usually either quiet, sullen, “emo” as Pidge calls him, or he is angry, aggressive, fused to whatever objective he’s got in front of him. He’s not a natural team player but has learned to trust the other paladins… to a point. He’ll still go off on his own if he thinks his way is the right way.

equipment: Red Bayard (which turns into a sword), Paladin Uniform including rocket thrusters, and of course the Red Lion (which isn’t just a piece of equipment, but technically falls under this category)
history
Institutions have been a necessary evil for Keith ever since he was orphaned, but he doesn’t respect them. He respects individuals. He enrolled in the Galaxy Garrison Academy because it was the next step in his institutional journey from the orphanage, it beat the street, and best of all it gave him a chance to be a pilot. But the person he respected at the Academy was a recently graduated ace pilot named Shiro. Shiro is a man both of action and of inner strength, someone Keith aspires to be and sees as a father figure. A year before the story of Voltron Legendary Defender starts Shiro was on an exploratory mission and disappeared. His hero presumed dead and not one to fall in line Keith got into trouble and was expelled from the Galaxy Garrison.

He didn’t go far though. He set up in a small cabin a short distance from the Galaxy Garrison Academy due to a “calling” he felt to stay in the area and search for something unknown. What he found were drawings on caves depicting the story of a blue lion. His obsessive drive to figure out what the drawings meant, living as a hermit as he did so, is a prime example of the tunnel vision that both helps and hinders him. He was living in the cabin when Shiro crashed back to Earth in an alien spacecraft. Keith zoomed out to investigate, set explosives to distract that Galaxy Garrison crew responding, and rescued Shiro along with the help of a 3 person Academy crew who were out after curfew - Lance, Pidge, and Hunk. Shiro was babbling about some weapon the aliens were looking for called Voltron, the same name Pidge had picked up on deep space chatter. Using their combined resources, the newly formed team investigated the lion carvings and ended up finding the blue lion.

Keith hardly remembered Lance, but Lance was the one who bonded with the blue lion, flying them out of the cave in a series of bumps and spins that prompt Keith to call him the worst pilot ever. From the very beginning it was clear Keith didn’t think much of Lance, though as the series progresses their rivalry turns to a friendship peppered with constant bickering. Part of the development of their friendship is based on Lance’s strong sense of loyalty to the team and how much Keith respects that kind of loyalty.

The blue lion flew the team to the planet Arus where they found the Altean castle with Princess Allura and Coran held in stasis for 10,000 years. Allura filled the team in on the reality of the Galra, an invasive empire of hostile aliens headed by the Emperor Zarkon. The only hope against Zarkon was the weapon Voltron - five robot lions who could join to form one giant robot. The team would become the paladins who would pilot the lions. Keith was given the task of finding and bonding with the red lion - a task that could only be completed by winning the lion’s respect. The red lion was held in a Galra ship and Keith had to fight through a crew of Galra to get to and protect the lion. In the process Keith ejected the Galra attackers into space and got sucked out the airlock while doing so. Impressed by how far he was willing to go, the red lion saved him, and they bonded.

The Altean castle is actually a huge ship and ended up leaving the planet of Arus to keep its people from being attacked. The next few months the Voltron team spent evading Zarkon, helping people and planets oppressed by the Galra, and becoming better paladins, bonding more with their lions. End of season one

Season 2



Hub Information
landmarks in hub:As the Voltron presence in Hub expands things like the Altean Castle would manifest, but to start with Keith will just have the cabin he had in the pilot of the show. He found Hub while looking for something, and he started living in the cabin while feeling the call to search for something. As Keith can be a loner, the hermit cabin seems a good place to start him.
knowledge level of multiverse: Knows it’s a possibility, especially since in the Voltron universe space travel happens through wormholes and there is an astral plane on which the paladins communicate with their lions.
fandom specific information: He's the Red Paladin of Voltron, bonded to the Red Lion who only will take a paladin who is a loyal risk taker.
Anchor Character Section
which fandom: Voltron
which universe: Legendary Defender Netflix Series
timeline: Directly after season 2 finale.
where is the Hub portal located: In a cave near Keith’s hermit cabin. In the Voltron universe the portal is located
If not already established in canon do the following exist?

magic: Yes, especially with the Alteans and the Galra magic is mixed with science centering on the substance called Quintessence.
aliens: Well established in canon!
advanced technology:Yep.
mythical creatures:Not really.
other: here

what landmark(s) to start with in Hub?Start with the desert outside of the Galaxy Garrison Academy where Keith has a hermit hut full of research. There are several caves nearby.
Somewhere in the desert is the Galra ship that Shiro crashed down in and when Keith finds it, an out of it Shiro echo will be inside. Shiro won’t have any memory of what happened to him or how he got here.
RP Sample
Second character and you guys know how I write.
about
The quick story is Keith flew the Red Lion through a portal in the midst of space debris while looking for something pertaining to the Voltron Legendary Defender show. He’s landed in the Hub and assumes what he’s looking for will be somewhere around. If you haven’t watched the show and don’t want spoilers, don’t click the
shipper
While Keith has a strong drive to help those in need, he doesn’t make friends easily. If someone wins his respect he will be loyal to them, but as far as getting to know someone through sharing vulnerabilities… well, talking about his vulnerabilities isn’t something Keith is known for. He is starting to open up more, though, especially after learning more about his past and having it accepted by the Voltron team.

As far as romance goes, it just hasn’t been on his radar. The show gives signals that he’s likely gay and I’m going to write him as such. He’s always idolized strong independent men, and has always figured this was because he lost his father at a young age. But he’s drawn to them for more reasons than they’re role models. In the show he’s also drawn toward Lance, which frustrates him because Lance is not the type of man he thinks he should be drawn toward. Lance is irreverent, lazy, likes to party, and is often talking himself up bigger than he is. It’s exactly Lance’s carefree do what he wants personality that attracts Keith, though, a yang to his yin, and the fact that Lance gets serious when someone needs help and is as loyal as Keith is makes him even more intriguing.

Aside from going on a couple of dates with women who he never contacted again, Keith hasn’t had any relationships, but if you write a strong male lead or a party hard guy with a good heart, Keith would be interested. Just don’t expect him to jump right in as he isn’t really aware of his own preferences.

  Only Human After All

Only Human After all

Spending time with Wanda had been… Enlightening.

It had also been enjoyable. Maybe one of the first truly enjoyable moments he’d been able to have since Tony had arrived in Hub.

Not that Tony being here was a bad thing! He was incredibly happy to have the man back in his life; he was just not so happy him hurt. Again. God, watching him fall through the sky again, that had hurt in a way that Steve hadn’t honestly been prepared for.

As Steve walked home, he considered the last year and more of his life. Waking up from the ice had been hard, finding out he’d been gone for over half a century had been even harder, but he had done his best to acclimate. New York, the formation of the Avengers, that had given him something solid to hold onto, to ground him, and he had been so grateful for them, for his new home. Then Bucky had ripped open a wound that had only just started to really heal.

That had been a defining moment for him, hadn’t it?

Steve stumbled as he made the realization; Bucky’s return had started this downward spiral, not because of anything his friend had done or hadn’t done, but because of how Steve had dealt with it. Or rather, how he hadn’t dealt with it. He hadn’t talked to anyone about it. He hadn’t trusted a soul other than Natasha with the information, and if he were being very honest with himself, he’d only trusted her because she’d been there, been present during the whole incident. His choice not to tell Tony hadn’t been a solitary decision, it had been part of a much larger problem.

Watching Tony fall from the sky again had made Steve realize a few things. He cared about Tony far too much to continue the path that he’d been walking. His decision to return to New York, to try to meet with Tony and see if they could even begin to mend the chasm between them had been the right choice, but he hadn’t gotten far with that before he’d found himself here in Hub.

Now, a week and a half after that, a week after Tony had left to go do...whatever… Steve was wandering back through Hub’s version of New York, more stumbling than walking, the alcohol still coursing through him. And even though so many things were left unresolved for him, even though there were still so many problems that needed solutions, Steve was smiling just slightly. It had been nice to just talk to someone, to not worry about how what he was saying would be heard. Sure, back home he had friends. He had Sam and Clint. (Wanda and Scott weren’t exactly his friends, but they were there, too.) But he still felt like he had to be Captain America with them. Sometimes it was almost like an obstacle course; Steve felt as though he couldn’t just open up, couldn’t just talk to them, they couldn’t see his doubts… He was the leader, and he had to keep that appearance up for them, even when inside he was breaking down, when was filled with apprehension and regret.

Wanda saw him as… A man. Capable of making mistakes, having regrets and doubts. Of being an idiot.

Arjay treated him as a comrade, younger than the elf (which was odd but actually quite welcome in a way), and again saw Steve as able to make mistakes, and struggle to rectify them.

Steve looked up for the first time in twenty minutes, trying to get his bearings. The tower was further away now than it had been when he’d started walking, wasn’t it? Had he taken a wrong turn? He had no idea.

Yep. He was an idiot. Well, that might as well be, but he was an idiot that needed to figure out how to get himself ho-- back.



“That’s not going away anytime soon.”

Being an intelligent man, Arjay was well aware of just how out of touch it could make him look to not understand the technology of many of the worlds around him. He could gather the use of devices, of course, but not having them on his world, actually operating them was an exercise in overcoming a rather large learning curve. He hadn't, therefore, told anyone that he'd gotten a phone until he finally figured out how to use it well, and had felt sufficiently proud of himself once he had.

The first call he'd gotten had been from Steve, and he'd been pleased that he'd managed to not press the wrong little pictures on the glass while he'd been on the call. He'd been in such a good mood about it all that he'd headed straight over to help with the little problem Steve had, and now found himself in quite another technological quandary: How the blazes did you get into this building?

The doors were locked, and there was no one on the other side of the door to see him or open it if he knocked, he could see that through the odd glass door.
There was some manner of device at the door, but he couldn't for the life of him decipher what it did, never having seen a retinal scanner on his world. Using magic to bypass the door would be possible, yet obviously rude, so he held that as a backup idea. He spent a good ten minutes just looking everything over, marveling at whatever it might be, before he decided that yes, there was probably someone watching him, and yes, he was probably looking like quite an idiot. So, deciding to take a chance before he used up a Sending spell, he cleared his throat, looking around. "Ah... hello? I was called by Steve Rogers, he said that there was an injured friend who needed care? May I come in?" He waited a moment, then added, "Or am I looking like a complete fool talking to myself here?"

Powers/Strengths/Weakness
powers: As a gorrilla, Winston is several times stronger and more durable than an average human. He’s able to deal significant damage unarmed and by hand. He is able to climb almost effortlessly, scaling or clinging to any surface he can get a grip on.

Ambidexterity - Winston is equally proficient with his right and left hand, and with his right and left feet for that matter.
strengths: Strong! - As stated, as a gorilla, Winston is physically superior to human beings.

Scientist/Inventor - Winston is a scientific genius, often relying on items he creates rather than his physical strength. He is an able computer programmer (having created his own onboard AI, Athena). He once cobbled together a makeshift rocket capable of returning him to Earth from the moon, and created a device to stablize his teammate, Tracer, who had become stranded outside the space-time continuum, just to name some of his accomplishments.
weaknesses: He's an ape - Winston is the only one of his kind on Earth. This leaves him with a strong need for community and surrogate family, and can lead to feelings of isolation.

Animal rage - Winston is, generally, soft-spoken and gentle. He can, though, in periods of stress, lose his temper and slip into his animal nature, losing his self control and his ability to mitigate the damage he does.
equipment: Power armor - Winston has constructed protective armor for himself which shields him from a considerable amount of harm. Nanotechnology repairs it over time, and it has self-charging booster jets on it, providing mobility for a limited time, but an unlimited number of times.

Tesla cannon - collapsible weapon, stored in his armor, that projects high voltage electricity.

Shield generators - deployable energy shields, charged by his armor, that project a protective sphere of energy that stops projectiles a energy, but will not impede movement by a person.

history
Winston was one of several genetically enhanced gorillas that were bred as part of an experiment on the effect of low-gravity environments on the Horizon Lunar Colony. It was quickly discovered that his enhancements had given him a remarkable intelligence, and he was put into the care of Doctor Harold Winston, his namesake. He grew up on the lunar colony, assisting the scientists there with their experiments as he rapidly learned their trade, only ever seeing the earth as a distant object in space.

This all changed when the other gorillas staged a revolt, taking over the colony for themselves and killing all of the human scientists. Winston, horrified and left without his beloved caretaker, assembled a makeshift rocket and abandoned his fellow gorillas, aiming the rocket and his future toward the Earth.

Arriving on Earth, Winston eventually found a home in Overwatch, the global peacekeeping force that had brought an end to the Omnic crisis. Among their ranks, he became a respected scientist and soldier, helping keep world peace as much as he created new innovations for it. When Overwatch collapsed under the pressure of internal politics and government pressure, he retreated to one of the abandoned bases, carrying out his experiments in seclusion and longing for the return of his team, or more accurately his family.

RP Sample
Friends - Winston is, at heart, a very gentle creature. He identifies himself as a scientist primarily, but his sense of responsibility and loyalty prevents him from sitting idle in the face of adversity in the world. He is a loyal ally, once you decide to make him one, and a capable scientist and engineer. There’s potential for him to be friends with any of the heroic characters, especially those technically inclined.

Enemies - Winston likes to believe the best in everyone, he really does. Sometimes, though, people will do things that he can’t forgive, usually when they act against his friends. When provoked, Winston is a brutal fighter, though not sadistically so. He abhors cruelty and oppression, putting him against anyone who would seek to walk all over others.

shipper
While Winston could definitely learn to care for other people, I can’t stress enough that he’s a gorilla, and thus fated to be alone. So alone.

  When you can't see the forest for the walking trees
Posted by: Arjay Lo'Ran - 06-01-2017, 12:06 PM - Forum: Hub - Replies (5)

This part of the hub was mostly forest. Even though the world it was taken from was alien to him, Arjay still felt a bit of nostalgic comfort walking among the great, towering trees. While he was the son of a noble house on Evermeet, most people didn’t pay much attention to the fact that he was also the son of a respected druidess from the mainland forest tribes. There were many seasons that he’d spent with his cousins in the forest, high in the trees or on the hunt. His sort of magic was fairly unknown among the tribes of the forest, and so he’d been something of a novelty there, having strange new songs for them with each visit, while always remembering the traditional songs of the forest. They’d named him Starwind, after a particularly aesthetically pleasing display of magic he’d performed during one of the festivals as he’d played for them, the same name that he gave his sword, to honor that part of his heritage.

There was always a part of the elf that was drawn to the woods, that same part of him that found his musical inspiration in the crash of the storms, or longed to make his home in this place inside a tree. He knew a fair amount of magic that had its origins in the magic of nature, but here, the one spell that he felt coming to mind was one that he rarely had cause to use, the simplest of them, and arguably the most enjoyable. And so, seeing no one watching them, he began to sing out the spell, the short spell making for a lively little tune, waving the gestures of the spell all around him as he danced through the little grove. Here, a tree began to bloom, bud by bud, there flowers began to sprout out. All around him, this empty, grey part of the grove began to bloom to life under the influence of his magic.
