The Strange Chimera: Chronicles of Iron [RP][PG-13]


Recommended Posts

Mankind has always been afraid of the Darkness. The unknown, the things that it cannot see or understand, it has been afraid of it all. The same is on the half moon planet of Calypso where the planet's axis never truly turns. Except this time the fear is increased ten fold- prejudice on either sides results in a never ending conflict between the Light and Dark sides of the planet. The hate, prejudice and fear was so intense that it formed into one sentient being- the creature known as DreadFear. It is the pure embodiment of fear, and with this power it manipulated soldiers on either Sides to form the world syndicate known as Strange Chimera. Intent on conquering Calypso with his armies of fear and death, DreadFear is so far unstoppable. But there are those who choose to take advantage or stop DreadFear's armies... question is, who are you?


[spoiler=List of Playable Species on Calypso]

Light Side

Since they're lives are lived in eternal light, creatures on the light side of Calypso are usually efficient sleepers and have horrible night vision.

Elves: Humanoid insects that usually inhabit the treetops of the forests on the Light Side of Calypso. Their subspecies vary depending on the type of forest- the Elves that inhabit rain forest are usually praying mantis-like with bat like wings while the ones that inhabit boreal forests and wide pine wildernesses usually have bipedal dragonfly bodies with damsonfly like wings. They're society is mostly bent on respecting their brood mother and elders of the tribe, and kill anyone who insults them. They are also highly superstitious and each tribe has it's own Seer or Prophet. They are usually good archers and healers. Extremely religious.

Dragons: One of the most oldest residents of Calypso besides the Wyverns, Dragons are fierce sentient reptiles that have achieved many technological advances not yet made by bipeds. They have very light scales yet they are very hard, that not even an Ogre can punch threw. They also can soak up the heat of the sun in their scales and use it extensively for fire breathing. Dragons are also usually rulers of many of the cities sprawled across the Light Side of Calypso. Despite their wisdom and intelligence they have an extensive patriarchal society and many male Dragons are extremely sexist, despite the fact that female Dragons can way ten kilograms and ten metres above a male Dragon. Sworn enemy of the Wyverns, who have had a war since time in memorial. Some say that the war between the Dragons and Wyverns started conflict between the Light and Dark Sides. Mostly atheists.

Dwarves: A race that evolved in murky caverns mostly dependent on camouflage, Dwarves have earned the title of "Rock People". They are usually brutish and not very intelligent, but there forges are famed through out Calypso and their ability to detect minerals from the lowest points of the ground have earned their legendary reputation. They usually don't know how to read and mark their digging tunnels with crude pictures and symbols labeled Dwarvspeak. They are unique to the Light Side in a way that they do not extensively fear the Darkness, since they usually inhabit the tunnels in which they dug minerals. Very agnostic.

Calape: A race of crude ape like creatures that were just recently gifted with intelligence about a million years ago. They are usually used by Dragons as farmers, laborers and assistants. Calapes are a very good working force and have set up many colonies and their population has increased rapidly due to their heavy breeding. So, Calapes make up most of the population of the Light Side of Calypso and are usually used as front line soldiers. Get along famously with Elves. Culturally diverse, but mostly religious.

Dark Side

Since their world is totally eclipsed in darkness, most of the species of the Dark Side of Calypso are either blind or highly nocturnal. Some, like Trolls, may have an extreme weakness to light of any kind, but are extremely useful in their own environment- Darkness.

Vampires- A race of bat like quadrupeds which rely on night vision and echolocation for locomotion and search for prey, Vampires are extremely efficient hunters and predators. The setback is that due to the lightness of the blood, plasma is constantly lost and burned up when Vampires start to move. So, Vampires feed off of the blood of other creatures for it's own survival to obtain it's precious plasma. Usually hired as assassins by Wyverns or Trolls. Most Vampires are solitary creatures, which is good, for if they were grouped together they'd killed eachother off. Extremely agnostic.

Wyverns: Wyverns are the stuff of nightmares for the Light Side of Calypso- the embodiment of everything they had learned the hate. Wyverns are eyeless, writhing wyrms that were around and ruled the planet before the Dragons were born. They are all psychopaths who manipulate others frequently. They have expert sharp senses and giant claws and their enslavement of the Trolls as their workforce was a show of their superiority. Besides that, Wyverns are wickedly intelligent and manipulative, able to observe and know even the slightest weakness of their opponent. But, their pride usually lets them overestimate their opponents and is a great weakness for the grey worm like reptiles. They are all atheists.

Goblins: Blind, toad like abominations, Goblins travel in packs usually headed by their Pack Chieftain, the greatest warrior in the pack. They evolved from scavenging dead carcasses of Wyverns and other animals in the Dark Side of Calypso and breed like wildfire, making them wide spread across all of Calypso. They are usually captured by Trolls or Wyverns and used to fight in the front lines as cannon fodder and are the main prey of Vampires. They are usually cowards. Religious.

Trolls: The Trolls are a warrior race, born and bred. They have been respected by friend and foe alike for their ferocity in battle and reasonable negotiations with others. Those that live on the Dark Side of Calypso are the greatest of all- except their fatal weakness. Sunlight heavily burns a Dark Side Troll's skin, and thus are usually kept in the back lines and border guards. They are humanoids that are famous for their enormous noses and are usually covered in fur. Mostly religious.

@freeman: The Dragon and Wyvern technologies are very advanced, though they do not like sharing it with anyone living outside their cities. But Wyverns usually equipped their high ranking soldiers with advanced weapons for combat.


@Fenrir's Herald: Yes, Wyverns do have wings.


@BH15: You are accepted.


@Wuja: Accepted, but saw some vocabulary mistakes. Elves don't have "wives", they have a "mate", which is usually the brood mother of that tribe who gives birth to all the larvae of the Tribe. Otherwise, accepted. Also, are you a Forest or Rain Forest Elf?

Name and Title: Lord Halagdrandr Exedrolvi von Exaven

Age: 54

Race: Dragon


The Duke Exaven of the Mevanl Dukedom was caught between a rock and a hard place even before Halagdrandr's birth. Exaven Estate was practically on the border between the Light and Dark Sides of Calypso, with a similar family of Wyverns in vaguely the same position on the other side. However, Mevanl Dukedom was at that point also bordered by the Elven forest of Thruke; the Wyvern Dukedom of Sanft, on the other side, was bordered by the aggressive Troll city of Antrebein. Neither side was willing to do anything but spread petty contempts to improve the morale of their neighbors, as each feared hostilities from the other.


Meanwhile, Halagdrandr himself was raised by several nannies. Most were male; however, Saravna Mvalastr Hersahaft managed to pass herself of as male and secretly teach Halagdrandr tolerance towards females. As Saravna was by far the best of Halagdrandr's caretakers, her mission was a complete success. Halagdrandr was originally very rebellious, as he was quite stubbornly passionate about the virtues he was being taught; however, several years of not making a dent in the status quo made him soon take a different approach: one of persistent subtlety and manipulation of the broken system his world was governed by.


Halagdrandr's influence, intelligence, patience, and virtue, however, quickly became legendary in Antrebein. This began in relatively routine events. As Halagdrandr loathed the idea of a leader being out of touch with his subjects, he repeatedly toured his Dukedom, soon finding that many families kept female dragons as servants. He decided that the sexism could be tolerated as long as these servants were willing. However, it wasn't long before he encountered an influential merchant's overseer severely beating a more strong-willed servant, who quickly managed to turn the fight around, despite the fact that she was a rather petite, untrained dragon and he a well-trained behemoth, and incapacitate the overseer. As a result, eight security guards converged on her, knocked her out, and imprisoned her with a death sentence, unaware of Halagdrandr's awareness. Completely taken with the young woman at this point, the ethically sound Lord soon developed a plan to release her. He sent a few of his inspectors to launch a surprise inspection of the area, knowing that the execution was highly illegal, and that it wouldn't take place if an inspection was anywhere near. In the meantime, he quickly incapacitated the guards to the incarcerated servant's cell and freed her. Realizing that his nobility would constantly serve as a mask his true self, he immediately fled the area, returning anonymously to sentence the merchant's arrest once the freed captive had emerged from the dungeons.


Furious at himself for allowing his love to slip away anonymously, if into a decent life, Halagdrandr fled home and traveled to the Dark Side of Calypso. He'd trained there extensively as a child warrior, learning how to light fires in his retinas to see properly, and hoped to find Antrebein. Though he was nearly shot and stoned to death by suspicious, terrified Troll civilians, he was rescued by the leader of a rebellion campaign in Antrebein, Einsicht Innerste Rhbalto. Einsicht and his group wanted Antrebein to venture into the Light Side and ally with both Sanft and Mevanl in order to help defeat the prejudice between the Light and Dark Sides of the planet, as well as the Troll race's photophobia. Halagdrandr then revealed his identity to them, sympathizing heavily with Einsicht's ideologies, and offered a plan certain to ensure the alliance. First, Einsicht would lead a revolt against Antrebein's widely disliked government while Halagdrandr baited Thruke into attacking Sanft. After Einsicht had firm control over Antrebein, Halagdrandr would trick Thruke into attacking Sanft, at which point the Antrebein military would intervene and stop the attack. Halagdrandr would at this point have been gone from the palace; Antrebein will claim that Sanft rescued Halagdrandr from Thruke.


This plan is being carried out now. Einsicht Rbalto is the leader of Antrebein, and Thruke has begun its siege on Sanft. However, Thruke's armies were far more powerful than anticipated. Unable to battle in case he's recognized, Halagdrandr can only plan, and wait...



Personality: He seems stubborn, ill-tempered, and passionate about distinctly non-draconic morals. However, he's actually far more reserved than he appears, and usually has hidden motives if he does something seemingly impulsive. He's extremely patient and charismatic, and is expert at manipulating opponents. He's honorable and ethical enough, though, that he rarely lets his power get out of control.

Weapon of Choice: This bad thing. Image © Nara (or is it Nora? hard to read... :?)

Special Characteristics: His scales are mutated into what appears to be a permanent armor. Particularly of note is the massive silver-and-black scale that forms his "helmet"; it has mutated into a bizarre shape with extremely practical uses. One might say he's a very successful genetic experiment.

List of Skills:

•Close combat




List of Weaknesses:


•Can be overpowered fairly easily if he loses his temper

From my point of view, he's "freeing" the Calapes from service. I like the app; after all, not all Calapes would be so inclined towards freedom, or so abhor servitude. I think it'd make for some interesting plot twists.


EDIT: Other app will be up soon. Also, Einsicht <3 natural selection.

Yes, but it isn't slave labour at all. Calapes go into Dragon's cities, live in the city's houses, and since there is no real form of currency on Calypso, farming plots of lands for Dragons is basically like "paying the rent". But anyway, your still accepted.
