Knights of the Cosmere

94 posts in this topic

Well, hello. I am Tesh, the, erm, founder? of the Knights of the Cosmere. The Knights of the Cosmere is a decent sized role playing group, though most of our members are inactive. We have a role play on a PM, so if you'd like to join, I'll tell you how to go about doing that in a minute. This thread will basically just be for updates, general conversation among members, and ones who would like to join, and a catalog of sorts to keep track of all the members. 

And @Sami is my sort of informal secretary, and @King Cole the GM.

To join:

Spoiler

We are redoing the application process thing, and we have had quite a few new members lately, so we aren't going to add anyone for at least two weeks.

If you'd like to join, this is what you've got to do:

  • Post a character profile on this thread, with a specific request to join. (I'll provide a template below).
  • Be ready for a lot of notifications from the RP conversation. We're usually really active. (You can change your notification settings, though, to make it so you don't get, say, fifty everyday).
  • Just know, strange conversations do take place. (Examples: knitting. Depression. Musicals. Weasles. The weasles were my fault, and it's pretty embarising).

Character template (please include all of the following):

Full name:

Investiture:

Additional abilities:

Nationality:

Height:

Age:

Hair color:

Eye color:

Home planet:

Character's current religion, if they have one, and if not, the one they grew up in:

Spouse:

Parents:

Siblings:

Children:

History:

(And just so you know, the RP takes place around 1174, or in between the events of WoR and OB. We are starting to cross into OB territory very slightly, though).

Members:

Spoiler

This section will take a fairly long time to complete, so please bear with me.

This is a list of all members, active and inactive.

*the most active members. The best people to address questions to. The ones with the most experience on the role play.

I will gradually expand, and add each person's character profile onto here. 

Rules:

Spoiler
  • You can have up to three major characters, but only if you are able to keep all three running at once.
  • You can have two side characters. People who are of not much import, or are on a different planet. 
  • You can use any PoV, you can even switch it if you'd like. We just want this to be a way to have fun and become a better writer. But please keep it to one first person at a time, and try not to switch unnecessarily, or just for the fun of it.
  • You can write from any tense. But if you'd like to try something new, please stick with it for a while, and not change around a lot. (Or in other words, try new styles, and see what works best with the character you're writing, then stick with it).
  • Try to keep side conversations to the separate PM for things like that, and not on the RP. A little bit of side conversation is fine, but try to keep it to a minimum.
  • Hemalurgic Knitting Needles™ are trademarked by The Knights of the Cosmere Role Play Foundation.
  • Please no non-Cosmere swearing. 
  • Keep RP content at PG-13, and outside conversations at PG. 
  • Nothing that you just know is a no-no. If you do anything that falls even slightly under that category, you will be out of the group and will be reported to an admin. That one is a bit of a given.
  • Be kind. Don't be judgemental about other's writing skills.
  • Kindly refrain from bringing spiked goods, hemalurgically or otherwise, on to the role play. That includes knitting projects. (*cough* @Firerust @King Cole *cough*)

I did not mean for that to be this long.

I will add the character profiles eventually.If you are one of the ones who would like to know when we open up again, just comment with a request for updates, and I'll send them.

Hey! Never seen this group before, but I would love to join. But I have a few questions here. What time does the RP take place? Across all planets, but specifically Scadrial, Roshar, and Nalthis. Also, is my character(s) aloud to be hemalurgically spiked? If I'm doing something wrong I'd like someone to point me in the right direction. Looking forward to many great adventures with you! @Tesh

Time is past WoR, but we haven't really strayed into the events in Oathbringer. Mostly the planets involved have been Roshar and Scadrial, but all are open. And yes, Hemalurgically spiked characters are allowed, we have many of them

Full name: Alonze Ferro (goes by Al)

Investiture: Natural Born  A Iron/F Iron Twinborn, Awakener of the 2nd Heightening, nearly 3rd.

Additional abilities: Very perceptive, can see through deception easily

Nationality: Caucasian

Height: 5'8"

Age: 27-ish

Hair color: Jet black with slight hints of gray

Eye color: Olive Green

Home planet: Scadrial

Religion: Devout of the Church of Trell

Spouse: N/A

Parents: Unknown

Siblings: N/A

Children: N/A

History: (I promise that it was entirely unintentional that this sounds like @Quell's history) Born and raised shortly after the Catacendre by a Terris tribe, being one of the first Twinborn to exist. Experimented with Iron compounding for a while and decided to leave his Terris tribe. At some unknown point in his young adulthood, he traveled to Nalthis, experimenting with the foreign Investiture. During his time on Nalthis, he reached the 2nd Heightening. Eventually he returned to Scadrial (where he resides currently).

Personality: Alonze is very inquisitive and curious. He will often go to ridiculous lengths to obtain information he craves. This can lead to him becoming demanding, and if denied the truth long enough, slightly sadistic. He is generally a trailblazer and loves being the 'first' to do anything at all. 

(If anything is too vague or unacceptable here, just PM me)

You can't store breath in a Nicrosilmind. Nicrosil stores the ability to use investiture. You don't see anyone storing metal storages in their Nicrosil Mind

I literally just created a thing about how all the RPs seemed intimidating, but rust it, why not? If I can't join or whatever, then that's cool too. Um, so I guess this is my request.

  Hide contents

If you'd like to join, this is what you've got to do:

  • Post a character profile on this thread, with a specific request to join. (I'll provide a template below).

 

Here's my character:

Full name: Diona Rokni

Investiture: Twinborn - Rioter/Bloodmaker

Additional abilities: I'm good with a dagger, a passable pickpocket, surprisingly educated, and the best whistler you'll ever hear.

Nationality: I look Alethi, but I'm not

Height: Um. What's the average height of a thirteen-year-old?

Age: Thirteen

Hair color: Dark brown, but I keep it dyed light blue.

Eye color: One eye is dark blue, one is light yellow

Home planet: I call Scadrial's Cognitive Realm home, as that was where I grew up. Lately I've been [wherever interesting things are happening right now in the RP, I haven't read anything yet]

Religion: I loosely follow the Sand and the Suns (I made this up for a different story, and am pulling it into this for no reason other than I feel like it. If I have to choose a Cosmere one, then please tell me and I can change it. If you want details, then I can also provide them.)

Spouse: Uh, no. Bit young for that.

Parents: Who knows?

Siblings: N/A

Children: See spouse

History: Was raised by Jathlet Rokni, who specifically told me he was not related to me, in Scadrial's Cognitive Realm. I am Cosmere-aware, of course, and he took me to several Shardworlds. One day I woke up on Nalthis and he wasn't there. I never saw him again. I can get along well enough on my own, and I'm fairly solitary. My sense of humor can stray close to meta, and I love dogs and axehounds. I actually have a pet axehound that I named Dog just to confuse Rosharans. Currently I am [see home planet] because [I don't know yet].

Hope I can join!

Edit: Moths later, I am shocked at how cringy I used to be.

Edit #2: Months after that, I realized I misspelled 'months'.

@AonEne Just a few things:

13 years. 1. That's pretty dang young. Our current youngest is... 18, I think? 2. Rosharian years? Or Scadrian years?

Religion: please keep it a Cosmere one. And the hair color. Could you just keep it at dark brown? 

And @Dwig Jigdens, I am really sorry I haven't gotten back to you. You're good, except for the hair color. Sorry.

Scadrial's are the closest to ours, right? I mean, I know that, but I can't find the exact number of days for the life of me.

I can change it to 17 Scadrian years, if that helps.

Gotcha. I'll go with the Path. Harmony all the way.

Yeah, that's fine. I don't know if hair dye exists in the Cosmere or not, but I figured it does SOMEWHERE, so why not? Keeping it dark brown is fine though.

Any other issues?

I’m a HUGE fan of the Drominad system (and am looking forwards to hanging out with @Mistspren's character) but have never done a RP so you guys are going to have to help me through this… here goes nothing:

Full name: First of the Night. Birth name was Amaxel but [see history]. Goes by Night.

Investiture: two Aviar(one of each for the two abilities we know of) and then I’m a Siah Aimian

Additional abilities: See History

Nationality: Siah Aimian(But don’t worry I lost the immortality thing)

Height: 5’9"

Age: 17

Hair color: Dyed Eelakin brown

Eye color: Blue(along with my fingernails jsyk)

Home planet: First of the Sun

Religion: I worship Patji and the rest of the archipelago as the Avatar of Autonomy that it is because I’m Cosmere aware :D

Spouse: None

Parents: two unimportant and probably dead Aimians. Adopted by Seventh of the Day

Siblings: An Aimian brother named Elaxan and an adopted Eelakin brother named First of the Dusk.

Children: None

History: I was raised an Aimian, but the Nightwatcher sent me to First of the Sun(thankfully granting me a whole bunch of Cosmere knowledge), in exchange for my Aimian immortality, when I told her I wanted to explore the stars at the age of ten(after my mother and father allegedly were imprisoned in Tu Bayla). I quickly mastered Trapping after being taken in by an Eelakin family, being taught by my adopted father and learning alongside my adopted brother, coincidentally only a year older. The mother of that family had been lost at sea the year before. I’m not a full trapper yet, but am close, having been through seven years of teaching. Unfortunately, due to the fact that I left Roshar at such a young age, I never completely learned to use my Siah Aimian abilities, but am figuring them out as I go.

Personality: I talk a lot, to the frustration of the Eelakin; and am somewhat… scared? of my Aviar. Good at talking to people one-on-one, not so good at talking in big groups. Haven’t really explored the Cosmere or cognitive realm much, so I'm constantly thinking about the Cosmere, but I’ve got a convenient shardpool on Patji(don't know about it yet though) so that could easily change.

Thanks. And you're good. (Scadrial has 1.0 gravity and 1.0 size, Cosmere standard, which is based off Yolen, so if we assume Yolen is a lot like Earth in that regard, that's perfect)!

Thanks for going with this.
