good point about the story but the problem is, we have somthing like 15 quests waiting for us already and we keep rolling this special or story.... we are not novice in rpg in general but we are kinda lacking of idea right now and time to dig them up(damn university) Story is nice when you lack of plot to put but we don't.... still I can give some information about, it might inspire someone...
(by the way sory for all mistakes, wrong spelling and such things, english isn't my language)
Ok first about the location of our alliance: We are located on the island of Terra near the Greek coast(it's a real place, the Cousteau team made researches there about the Atlantide myth) It's a dead volcano(erupted in helenistic periode it might have caused THE tidal wave who destroyed what we call now the atlantide... speculations of the scientifics about this... but anyway the point is: we are on one of the bigest remains of the atlantide realy strong aura 8.... there is a faerie regio on the island as well... We had a lot of plots with demons and faerie and we are getting bored of it actualy..... (we quited our old alliance to build a new one since the last one was awfuly plagued by these pests. )
My character is a germain used-to-be traveler verdicius optimistic(major and I play it a lot.... ) who actualy build the alliance itself. (awfuly enormous place 4x Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral in volume). Officialy I've started on muto teram/herbam but I turned quickly as a rego user. 40 years old, gluton(but not fat........ yet) a bit sadistic but more generaly sympathic. Driven by his desire to make a new kind of automaton by binding them to spirits and giving those spirits the control of the automaton... erase their memory and make brand new persons.... crazyer, he want to bind their magical powers and who know, the gift....(yhea, he is insane) He isn't made to fight but still act all the time recklessly all by himself.... his epitaph will probably be: ASSSSSh don't worry I'm sure everything will be alright. hum, so much to say about him but to hard to explain, you need to see him to understand :S I nearly forgot the most important parts: megalomaniac (for his creations) but still have some humility and he have TONS of idea and projects(I'm already boocked for the next 300 years with little exageration...) but no time to realise any... so I start stuff and never finish it.
His familiar is a Spider (as big as a human head) binding arts rego teram, up to now it only make steel webs, help in lab and dislike other magi presence, shadowy creature but don't lack of courage and try his best(not more than nothing) to help his reckless master even in the weirdest fights.... I know it's prety short, the dm didn't had time to finish it all and then we got this.... so we delayed a bit for this....)
Personal notice of the writer: don't experiment on familiar and longevity rituals, it usualy turn out as a disaster (up to now on 4 longevity ritual experimentation we have a Lich to be mage and 2 total failure, and for the familiar a special or story+ modified efect.... and 4 of my 5 magical items turned as a total failure.... still the last one catch up forall theses crap, 2x increased effect )
I don't want a list only for this special case, I think a lot of idea for general special or story events could be a good idea since we can have trouble with this when it happen.... damn dices...
