Shadow of Yamato

ThemeAdventure in fantasy feudal Japan
FlavourAncient Japan, adventuring, combat and anime aesthetics
Plot Summary
SHADOW OF YAMATO


APPLICATION OPEN. DEADLINE: 31ST OF JANUARY 2021.

About the GameYamato, a mystical far-east land, is a land blessed by the gods. Yamato is a land of wonders, where life is abundant. But it is also a land of vicious monsters and bloodthirsty demons, and for centuries, monstrous creatures known as youkai have been terrorizing the people of Yamato. The imperial soldiers have been working hard to protect the livelihood of the Yamato people, but lately, these foul creatures have attacked more frequently, and they have become more strategized and their attacks more coordinated.

Seeing that the imperial soldiers are unable to contain these attacks, groups specialized in youkai-hunting are established. Adventurers from all walks of life are hired not only to hunt down the youkai, but also to find out the reason behind the increased attacks. Of course, all these attacks are only just the beginning.

You are among those who are hired. Face the youkai and protect Yamato and its people from devastation.

Also, for those who are interested in an evil campaign, feel free to sign up here. We could use more clerics.

Hello! I just wanted to pop in and say this seems like an interesting concept and I have a few ideas for a character, so this is my way of posting interest.

I do have a quick question though, and that is regarding Cleric domains, would we be able to pick from the subdomains of the Deity's domain or are we just allowed to take the two domains belonging to the deities you presented?

For example if a character was a cleric of Uzume would they have to take Charm and Community as their domains or would they be able to take Charm and Family, or Captivation and Community, or even Captivation and Family?

Sorry for the late reply, but I'll be adding the subdomains for each of the deities after this.

I'm interested! I'm thinking of making a ranger or a slayer of some sort.

Can you provide more info on the youkai? Are they a particular creature or is that a name for a group of creatures? Do they pertain to a particular type (magical beasts, outsiders, fey, etc.)?

What can you tell me about the area we will be starting in? Is it largely inhabited? Are we surrounded by forests, swamps, etc.?

The youkai are more like magical beasts, only Japanese flavor.

As for the starting area, let's just say it's a secret.

Application
left-aligned image
Name: Nakazawa, the Proud
Race: Half Orc
Class: Inquisitor 3
Trait: Deft Dodger, Dirty Fighter
Drawback: Pride
Alignment: Lawful Neutral
Deity: Takamagahara

History: A half-orc living among orcs: typically an unfortunate situation to be in if you're the half-orc. This, though, is not the case for Nakazawa the Proud. Raised from birth with the Orcs, Nakazawa was bullied and abused for being the runt of the clan. He was always out-shadowed by the Orcs his age and was neglected by the elders. It wasn't until he was older that he was deemed beneficial, more-so necessary, towards the clan. While his fellow Orcs would rush head first into danger, Nakazawa took his time, assessed the situation, and worked it to his advantage. Such wisdom was not pertinent amongst the clansmen. Nakazawa continued to share this foresight in other situations: handling land disputes, settling arguments, and most importantly, defending and attacking the youkai. Such acumen gave Nakazawa purpose but it also showed to the clan that he has the Orcs prerogative at the forefront of his mind. He was bestowed the title "the Proud" as his clan believed that his pride for them leads him to victory.

Personality: Nakazawa holds his clan's needs as his top priority. He will stand up towards any aggression towards them until the conflict is resolved either through remediation or combat. Outside of his clan, Nakazawa respects those with similar beliefs towards brotherhood and tradition. He also appreciates the efforts of those from whom he and his clan can benefit from. Other youkai hunters, for example, are a group of people that Nakazawa respectively sees as equals.

Appearance: Nakazawa stands tall in his battle-worn armor with his sharpened falchion strapped to his side. He keeps his black hair pulled back into a small ponytail in order to keep his vision unhindered. His goatee is trimmed thin as to keep his prominent fangs from irritating it. His hands are calloused and scarred from the many prior skirmishes he's fought.

Reason: Nakazawa's clan views the youkai as an unnatural scourge on their lands that must be eradicated. Nakazawa's ancestral home much be protected against any threats towards its preservation. While the humans and other races may pose as a threat at times, they tend to resolve their differences with negotiations or through retreating when met with the force of the Orcish clan. The youkai are not as civil or smart and should be met with extreme prejudice.
