World Details: These will be useful for the RP, and help you make your character! Please read!

Races:

Show hidden content

Humans: Humans look like, well, humans. They are quite skilled with tools, usually having a favoured one. They make up 75% of the population.

Werecreatures: Werecreatures look like humans, but have the tail of the creature they can become. They can transform into a single species of animal, but are generally quite clumsy with tools, due to some of their animal instincts. They make up 25% of the population. They age the same as humans.


Places:
Show hidden content

The Bazaar:Many traders come here to barter and sell items. You can purchase and sell random items here! Many thieves also wander this area, so watch your goods!

Dragon’s Head Tavern:You can buy a bite to eat or something to drink here. Lots of people like to come here and gossip, so you can get all sorts of information.

Topaz Palace:An inn that you can sleep and stay in. You can rent a room for one gold piece a night, and it's relatively safe and hard to steal items and information in here.

The Leopard’s Paw:A general store where you can buy things like fruit and adventuring materials.

The Hammer and Anvil:A blacksmith shop where you can buy weapons and armor, and everything made of metal in general.

The Temple:A place where monks come to study religion. You can buy things like ink, parchment and jewelry here, as well as learn about their religion.

The Task Board: People put up tasks and quests that they need finished. If you take the task paper off of the board and meet the person who requested it, you can help them out and earn some money!

The Wall:The Viper Pit is surrounded by a hard to climb wall with 2 gates, one leading to the farms and the other to Shield Spire. Guards from the Circle of Shields keep watch here and see what you have going in and out of the town. It’s mostly to keep creatures out than to keep people in, because even bird werecreatures wouldn’t be able to get very far in the desert, as the only water nearby are the local oases.

The Oasis: In the center of The Viper Pit is an Oasis. This is used as a well for people to get clean water. Swimming in it isn’t allowed!

The Farms: About an hour’s walk away from the town is a collection of farms, centered around another Oasis. Many of the citizens of The Viper Pit work there during the day.

Shield Spire: About an hour’s walk away from The Viper Pit. It’s a huge hollow rock spire which is the HQ of the Circle of Shields. It is heavily guarded, although no one except members of the Circle have a reason to go there. Supposedly, the mysterious leader of the Circle of Shields lives here.


Important NPCs:
Show hidden content

Grank: A big and burly but kind human. Owner of the Hammer and Anvil, and a skilled tradesman.
Merek: A small and determined werelizard, who is apprenticed to Grank. She’s determined to master forging, despite the fact the werecreatures are generally bad with tools.
Ulano:One of the human head monks at the temple. Acts very wise, but half the time, no one knows what he’s saying.
Kyra:A werebird (sparrow), and owner of the Leopard’s Paw. She is a hard worker.
Valto:A human, owner of the Dragon’s Head Tavern. He’s sort of greedy with money.
Pralta:One of the high ranking members of the Circle of Shields. Strictly enforces law, and a talented fighter.
Ziroch:A werecat who seems to know everything about everyone. He knows a lot of secrets, but wont tell... sometimes for a price.


Extra:

The main religion/belief is that there is a human god, Honum, and a werecreature god, Amalis who were brothers. They protected each other from the evil dark, with Honum‘s resourcefulness with tools, and Amalis’s ability to transform into any animal. Honum blessed people with tool proficiency and Amalis gifted werecreatures with the ability to transform into an animal. The common belief after this is that they went away to a cave and fell into a deep slumber.

The town ‘government’ is the Circle of Shields, a fully human group. They try to stop thieves and protect the town’s borders from dangerous creatures. In return, citizens of The Viper Pit are expected to pay 5 gold pieces a week per household, which is collected every Sunday evening. The Circle of Shields is beginning to tax werecreatures more than humans.

The currency here is in copper, silver and gold pieces. One gold piece is the equivalent of 10 US dollars, a silver equal to 1 US dollar and a copper to 10 US cents.

Take a look at the Important NPCs section to get a good idea of typical names!




Its sunrise in the Viper Pit! The people in the Bazaar are setting up shop, and the Dragon's Head Tavern is open for buisness.

Loparu begins hurrying to the task board. Today is his day off in the Circle, so he hopes to earn some money to donate.

Chandi work up for her sleep as she begins to grab her backpack along with the 30 copper coins along with food and water so that she will be ready for the day ahead. "I see the sun alright, and I can remember the words that my mom said, stay focus and be prepared", Chandi said. Chandi got up and walked to the Viper Pit where she sees human and as well as interesting creatures known as werecreatures.

John has just woken up and is going to the task board, trying to find some easy job for some good money so he could pay rent and the tax. He has noticed that the known werecreatures have been having to pay more money for their taxes. Good thing nobody knew he was one, or else he would be in deep trouble. He sees that someone else is there but ignores them, looking for easy tasks.

Shitsuren sets off for the task board, keeping his head low. He's not a were-creature like some of the others, but he's still not very well-liked. As a child, he would steal pieces of bread and fruit from the local shops, getting caught on several occasions. He hasn't done anything like that recently, not since he became old enough to use the task board, but he has thought of it. His stomach grumbles and he takes a bite of a slightly browned apple. It's sweet. The task board shows a task with a reward of 100 gold. That should get me at lease until next month, he thinks. The missions didn't pay horribly, but there were still days Suren went hungry. He takes the contract off the list and goes to the living establishment of the person who set it up.




After a quick briefing, Suren goes home to grab his rapier forged from the scale of a dragon and his pixie dagger. He sets off for the central market to buy some supplies for his journey.

As Chandi continue to walk in the Viper Pit, she sees various bazaars that is run by various werecreatures, looking at the copper coins she has, Chandi realized that it might be trickier than it seems. "I see so many bazaars that is run by the werecreatures, I just hope I can see them but I feel that this could get worrisome", Chandi said. So afterwards, Chandi placed the dagger that she has on to the backpack so that she won't lose it, Chandi will soon realize that she needs to speak to someone and ask about the Viper Pit.

John gets to the wooden board and he looks at the various tasks. He sees one for 50 silver, which he could trade in for gold, but no, he needed to get a rare fruit. There was one good offer for about 25 gold prices for a simple task. He takes that paper and starts looking for the person, going to the bazaar while looking.

Chandi continues to walk at the Viper Pit, she sees a wooden board and runs with utmost speed to the wooden board and she sees the tasks, but with 30 copper coins, Chandi begins to worry, "I see the tasks and of course it's run by someone", soon Chandi continue to look around hoping that someone or something will happen in a blink of an eye.

Akira was walking through the town, Viper Pit, she had known this place since a child. Her parents had given birth to her here, they had left her when she was 5, her memory wasn't to great back then, she could only remember her mother's silhouette. She mainly walked around the town keeping an eye out for pick pockets and scammers. She wasn't one for friends, she had never understood the benefits of friendship, so she never tried to make any.

Chandi sees a werecreature who was walking around the town, she took a look at the werecreature and soon Chandi walked away and said, "I guess this werecreature has her responsibilities, let's hope it is put into good use". Soon Chandi continue to walk away and continue to look at the various bazaars that the Viper Pit has to offer, "I still need to look around the bazaar and see what they have", Chandi said.

Loparu hurries to the board, dismayed to find that so many people are already there. There are barely any tasks left! Sighing, he begins to scan the board, when he suddenly hears a loud noise nearby. He turned his head to take a look at who it was coming from.

"What do you mean 6 gold?!" Demanded a man to someone of authority, someone from the Circle. Loparu didn't recognize her from his short time working for them, but she looked like she was from it, bearing the typical weapons of a Circle member: A long dagger and spiked shield. "It was 5 gold and 5 silvers last week!" The man asked again. A long rat's tail lashed angrily behind him. "6 Gold, or else!" The circle of shields member threatened.

Wait... was the man being charged unfairly? Loparu thought. His stong sense of justice compelled him to run over to see what was happening.

Sensing what was going on, Chandi ran as fast as she could to the area where the argument is happening, she sees a werecreature with a long rat's tail, "What is going on?", Chandi yelled. Only to realize that she sees a man who belongs in a group known as the Circle, Chandi's face went pale and nearly panicked, "This is not possible!",Chandi yelled.

Akira wandered over to the task board, she came over to see the drama, not to help people with their task. She wasn't one for 'helpful labor' work she put in for others, she only did them when they had a good bounty. If looked as if one man was being charged unfairly. Being a lover of drama, Akira stood there to see what would happen.

Chandi continues to see the situation that is happening, then in a sudden surprise she sees the werecreature from earlier, "What is this werecreature doing here?", Chandi asked. Then Chandi walked up to the werecreature and soon asked, "What brings you here to see the troublesome drama? Are you interested to witness the unexpected?", Chandi continued to ask the questions.

Loparu approached the Circle member. "What's going on?" He asked, trying to sound innocent. "Stay out of this! You're just a scout member." Whoever this was, she seemed to already know who he was. She must be an important member of the Circle. "You're taxing him 6 gold. You taxed me 5 gold this week," Loparu ventured. "Its orders from the boss," The circle member replied.

The boss. Loparu still didn't know who that was, but he must be a good guy, if he wants to protect the town. He only accepted humans though... maybe because werecreatures weren't great with tools... Loparu hoped that he wouldn't find out that he was a werecoyote...

Another wererat came running from the Bazaar. "Turak!" She yelled. "Just give it to them. We don't want any trouble." She told the Circle member, clearly shaken and scared. With a sigh of regret and defeat, the male wererat handed over and extra piece of gold. The Circle member took it, unsmiling, and marched away, swallowed by the crowd.

Kyrt yawned and stretched, sitting up. He looked around his small settlement, they stood up and grabbed his coin bag. He popped his neck, then rolled his shoulders, stretching again. Pushing open the poor excuse for a wooden door, he looked up and down the streets, taking inventory of the people within view. Glancing at his tiny home, he smiled, thinking, 'Humble beginnings, happy life.' His catchphrase. Almost. He rarely ever said it aloud, but he thought it every morning when he viewed his small shelter. 'Time to find something to argue about.'

Akira stared... then blinked, she wasn't a fan of innocent beings, they made her feel sick. Looking at this human, she realized there was a task in her hand, so Akira replied. " I like to see how situations unfold, letting them be gives them suspense" She knew this human wouldn't approve of her option but she didn't care. Soon she just turned away from the human, looking as if she felt too good to speak to this girl. Truth was, she didn't, she lived in an ally most of her life until a sweet lady payed for most of her stuff. Now she just lived with what she had.

The person who started the task said it was recommended for at least 2 people to do, if not more. Looks like I'll have to party up, he says. He looks around for someone and spots Loparu watching a market fight. He'd seen him around before but had never talked to him. He sighs and walks up to him. "What's going on here?" he asks.

"This guy just got taxed unfairly," Loparu responds glumly. "Word on the street is that it's been starting to happen to all werecreatures. Another reason for Loparu to be glad he cut off his tail. At least it wouldn't happen to him... but it was worse if he just stood and watched. "We need to do something about this!" Loparu's tail would've waved angrily... if he still had one. He looked just like a human without it.

John heard and saw the fight and wants to ignore it, not wanting to get in trouble with someone from the Circle. He wanted other werecreatures to pay fairly but didn’t want to have to pay more or go to jail or something. He keeps on moving, ignoring the clearing in the market to go and find the person who’s task this was.

"No kidding?" he asks. "Who in their right mind thinks that's okay? They are ultimately no different than any of us." He's mad now. "This place is just getting worse and worse."
