The village of Oakwood (Open rp!)

(this rp is for villagers only please link your villager(s) (up to 3) in your first reply!)


Once there was a village here, ruled by a cruel tyrant. He and his followers have all been chased out save for a few. Slowly but surely the new villagers have moved in. There has been an invitation sent out far and wide by a friendly messenger named Martin, who now is the official messenger for the king. The invite states as follows.

'Welcome one and all to the humble village of Oakwood. Come join us in our celebration of spring, as well as the welcoming of this new rule. Gifts and food are a plenty. The dates are February 15- March 15. There is an old castle to explore if you dare, you are welcome to keep whatever you find there.'

The celebration day is a crisp warm spring morning, the flowers just now starting to bloom.

Places of interest:
In the entrance of the village hangs a sign where the word 'Bullhorn' is burned and barely visible. Painted apon the charred sign in Golden letters is 'Oakwood'.

To the left is a massive gothic mansion, a garden always in bloom settled in the front. This is where the librarian lives, amongst his many books. Here knowledge lies.

Straight lies an abandoned castle, it's dark obsidian walls looming and cold. Here a guard stays, making sure would be explorers don't come by any harm. The massive building has obviously been through war, places of it crumbling into it's moat. Many relics and items can be found here.

Farther behind the castle lies a build site where a new castle is being constructed. This castle is being built out of white marble, flecks of gold swirling in the stone. Here a builder is hard at work, doing his best to make the structure suitable for a new king.

To the right of the entrance there are many homes, which many villagers are decorating for the celebration that night.

The messenger roams through all these areas but avoids the forest surrounding the village. There are wolves and other wild animals that would love to devour his precious pet. And any unwary villagers if they aren't careful!

Notes:
Please note: as more of my villagers get painties more areas will open up! Once this event ends a new celebration will start! The current celebration is Spring the next celebration is Summer

Any gift given or item found results in me sending you a gift!

My villagers will recognize yours outside of this rp, please keep that in mind! Your actions literally shape the lore of my village!
Only YOU can be YOU. You're one of a kind, so celebrate!

(Hope you don't mind, I'll be joining with my active, Jackie! This just looked too fun to pass up. X3)

The small bat sighed as they looked down at the directions on their invitation, ears perking at they read the it aloud to themselves.

"...Then, take the left path where the road forks. From there, be wary of the woods as you come upon the entrance to town...Oh, wonderful, do I have to worry about monsters HERE, too?"

Walking along the dirt path, they smiled as they soon spied a sign brandished with shimmering golden letters that shone in the afternoon sunlight. Adjusting the small bag on their back, they slowly stumbled into town, taking in the sights before raising a questioning eyebrow at the...apparent emptiness around them.

"Hmm...I must be the first one here. That's nice, I guess...gives me time to look around before things get too...crowded..."

After a bit more walking, they eventually found themselves settling along the path of a grand looking mansion. With a muted 'thump!' they sat out in the grass, taking in the nearby scent of the flowers in the flowerbed before pulling from their bag a book of blank parchment, a small inkwell, and a quill tipped with a large, white feather. Under their breath, they mumbled to themselves before eventually getting lost in the scribbling of their book...

"...I really did need this. A nice, proper vacation. Away from everyone else...and the monsters. Especially the monsters...maybe I'll go checking out that castle that's just down the road. Perhaps there's something worth finding in there...but I'll do that later. For now, I wanna practice drawing more with this quill. I've been wanting to try drawing with one of these for so long now..."

The nearby garden would be an almost magical sight, from elegant roses to sweet little forget-me-nots the entire garden was full with blooming flowers. The air was sweet with their scent, a perfect place to get lost in nature and relax. All would be quiet for a while before a soft clearing of the throat could be heard from behind.

"May I ask what you are drawing? I don't mean to be nosy of course, just curious."

A short blue Saggitari stood behind the bat, a pleasant smile apon his face. The librarian had gotten curious as he'd been in the garden picking flowers for the celebration later that dat, not to mention not many new faces appeared around here. Especially not one without hooves.

Lily, Mica and Luna had traveled from the village Star bright to come and partake in Oak wood's Spring celebration.
Lily held up her Invitation looking happily at the text scrawled across the parchment.
"We have arrived" she said wagging her tail as they approached the towns sign.
"Finally." Mica says blatantly. She was exhausted from the travel and only came because Luna insisted.
"I can't wait to meet everyone!" Luna says excitedly grabbing onto Mica's arm softly.

"I'm going to see the Flower garden do you two want to come with me?" Lily says grinning happily.
"Luna and I are going to the obsidian castle to see what we can find." Mica says plainly.
"Ok we can meet back up later." Lily says happily as she skips off towards the Gothic Mansion.

Lily arrives at the flower garden and joyously looks around at the various plants. The idea of ever blooming gardens piqued her alchemist intrigue.

Meanwhile Luna and Mica arrived at the Obsidian Castle. Mica walked forward Courageously as Luna hovered behind her cautiously.

The garden was magnificent, very grand indeed. From the creeping ivy to the marigolds everything was so full of life. Apon noticing the newcomer a purple hued saggitari approached, carrying numerous sweet smelling flowers in her arms.

"Oh hello! Are you here for the celebration? I'm very excited for it you know!"

She smiled kindly as she spoke, though she seemed to have a nervous habit of scuffing her hoof across the soft earth where she stood.


The palace was a cold looking place. Mean even. It's black spires gripped at the blue sky like an angry dragon's claws. Standing in front of the open drawbridge was a Gaurd. apon noticing the two approaching he stood stiff as a trained Gaurd should.

"Halt! The castle is off limits without an escort!"

He seems stern, but by his grin he was actually happy to see them. He'd much rather be exploring the castle than gaurding it.

Lily smiles and wags her tail.
"Yes my friends and I are here for the celebration. They went to explore the Castle though," "This garden is so beautiful! My friend Kimmy has quite a big garden back in Star Bright you should visit some time!" She says almost bouncing. "My name is Lily, whats yours~!"

Meanwhile~~~

Mica smiled at the sight of the menacing castle while Luna has a death grip on their arm.
Mica stops as the guard addresses them.
"Hm, Where are we to get an escort." Luna says disappointed. "Perhaps you can escort us? " She says a sparkle of hope in her eyes.
Mica looks at the guard her eyes narrow, blinking without saying a word. She was trying to put of an aura of intimidation but she looked rather silly instead.

The bat quietly squeaked at the sound of a voice behind them, their shoulders tensing as they quickly whipped their head around. Pulling the book close to their chest, they eyes stayed locked to the ground as they tried their best to reply...but all that managed to come out were half-hearted, stuttering whimpers.

"...A-A-Ah...!!! I-I-I-I...O-O-Ohh n-n-noooo...u-u-um...u-uhh…"

Shaking slightly, they took a moment and paused to take a deep breath, the scent of the flowers helping to calm them down...well, at least a little. Setting the book in their lap, they finally glanced up to meet the Saggitari's gaze with a sickly nervous face.

"...La-La-Landscapes...I-I-I n-need to w-w-work on the-the-them m-more...u-umm...a-a-and the ca-ca-castles h-here...the-the-they're so p-pretty. I-I-I've n-never s-seen an a-a-authentic ca-castle...th-this c-close before..."

The saggitari smiled brightly.
"Mayhaps I will sometime, or maybe Martin will for me. I can't travel very far unfortunately."

The taur closed her eyes and giggled a bit into her paw at lily's excitement. She reminded her a little bit of Martin's enthusiasm. "My name is violet. You know, there is a Lilly in this village as well. Would you like to meet her?"

She turned and gestured to a flower shop just down the road.

"She is helping me with the flowers right now but I'm sure she'd love to meet a new face!"

--at the castle--

The stallion grinned a bit wider and bowed to them.

"Arthur at your service."

He chuckled at mica, resuming a more relaxed stance.

"Aren't you a menacing being? I'm sure you can handle the many monsters that lurk in the castle hm?"

He turned to look into the dark opening of the castle and frowned a bit. Two twinkling blue lights were dancing deep within the castle. Probably nothing. Right?

Aramis had come from a small cottage further up the mountain. upon receiving the invitation, she quickly changed into more.. suitable clothes needed for the party. the palace wasn't far from her home; it was only a short ten to fifteen-minute walk until she could see the rooftops of the place. giddy with excitement, she walked faster until she reached her destination. she wanted to do some exploring since she noticed nobody was here. '' maybe the garden will have some folks..'' she thought.

Aramis marveled at the sheer beauty this place had. everything was so... unique and intricate. reaching the garden, she stopped to admire the different types of plants grown here. ''this place is amazing..'' she muttered, half to herself.

The short saggitari's ears lay against his head almost in sympathy. He decided to loaf like a cat, his legs tucked neatly under him.

"I hadn't meant to startle you! I apologize if I have."

He smiled politely and offered a hand to shake, his long silky tail swishing in the grass almost like a curious cat. He tilted his head slightly as he spoke, his horn shimmering slightly in the morning sunlight.

"My name is alphie. I'm the local librarian. The castle is quite a sight I must agree...."

He added with a half-hearted chuckle, looking in the direction of the crumbling beast of a castle.

"Personally I find it a little creepy, the dark castle. The gaurds say it is haunted. The new one will be such a sight for sore eyes. Whenever it gets finished. I do hope it does before this winter. Poor Malis working in that cold..."

A Green saggitari happened to be passing by and smiled at seeing the newcomer. He had a fishing pole over his shoulder and a bucket of freshly caught trout on his back. He waved as he spoke, shouting as he was still quite a distance away.

"Admiring the flowers are we? Mighty pretty they are dont'cha think?"

Aramis turned around, and upon seeing the fisherman she waved a greeting. ''of course!..'' she responded, smiling. she waited until the fisherman was close enough to be able to hear her properly.

''I've always found myself admiring pretty plants like these.. even at home I grow my own small patch. there's something about gardening that just lets you be in the moment, get totally involved with it.. even get to love the aspect of growing plants. it's just so calming.." she said. Aramis closed her eyes and took a deep breath. ''even the air around here smells nice'' she said, chuckling.

''anyways.. my name is Aramis. what's yours?" she said, extending a paw.

Lilly chuckled "Another Lily! Wow we should go visit!" She bounces about happily.

Meanwhile~~

Mica huffs and looks back at Luna who is still clinging onto her arm.
"We should go explore." She says smiling gingerly. "Join us?" She says to the gaurd.
"Oh right where are my manners, my name is Luna and this is Mica." She says nudging Mica's shoulder.

The bat watched closely as the saggitari settled himself next to them in the grass, bringing their book up over their muzzle so that only their eyes were visible...eventually their ears lowered, a sorry look crossing their face as they started mumbling again.

"...N-N-No...y-you d-d-didn't...I-I'm just l-l-like t-this a-around...p-p-people I'm n-n-not u-used to..."

They shied away a bit as Alphie introduced himself, but quickly went to meet his handshake with their long, webbed fingers out of common curtesy...and immediately the warm, welcoming feel of his palm was enough to bring a brighter smile to their face. They set their book in the grass before gently cupping Alphie's hand in theirs and announcing with a lot more confidence:

"I-I'm Jackie...Ja-Jackie O. Lantern...! I-It's nice t-to meet yo-you!"

Looking back to the darker castle, Jackie adjusted their broken bridged crimson glasses to see that yes, the makings of another, grander looking castle lay not far behind the first. Their eyes widened a bit at this discovery, perking their interest more and more...eventually they spoke again, their accent showing more now that they weren't stuttering nearly as much as before.

"Another o-one, eh...? Tha-That really i-is something, h-huh...And the o-other one i-is haunted...?"

Taking a minute to think, Jackie's ears perked at the mention of another name in Alphie's statement...and an idea popped into their head. They quickly stumbled to their feet, gently grabbing the saggitari's hands again whilst jumping in place and grinning happily like an excited child.

"He-Hey!!! Ho-How a-about I-I g-go check o-on yo-your fr-friend for you? Tha-That'll give m-me a cha-chance to lo-look around mo-more...! Ple-Ple-Please? I-I-It's the le-least I-I can d-do fo-for you...yo-you've been s-s-so nice to m-me so f-far...!"

Anyways, I’ll join with my villager rugged.

16 Feb 2020, 7:32 am
The small dog wandered, wondering where was this village he had heard about. Rugged paused a moment to wonder at a dark shape emerging from the trees in front of him. Squinting, he could make out the form of Something hulking next to the buildings entrance. Probably best to skip this one, he thought. He continued, skirting around the dark castle. Wandering for some more time, he was displeased to find the sky growing blacker and the shimmering stars showing themselves. Rugged growled softly. Where is it!

Something answered him. As ruggeds eyes adjusted to the dim light, a sharp bark came from behind him. He turned around cautiously, landing on all fours to address that creature. Emerging from the thick foliage to his left, a huge wolf shoulders it’s way out of the bushes. It’s eyes glittering with malice. A thought flashed through rugged head. Could this work? He fled, lowering his tail as in defeat. The wolf howled, obviously thinking it had won. But rugged spied what he had been looking for. An ancient oak, it’s branches breaching and it’s trunk leaning dangerously far. Rugged turned sharply and dove behind the tree. The stupid wolf, not being able to make the turn crashed into the side of the heavy tree. Rugged, still hiding behind it, felt a crack and slam as the tree broke off its roots and pummeled on top of the wolf. A howl of pain and silence.

Now that he was safe from the wolf, he stood up and brushed himself off before continuing on his journey. At last he spotted it; a village, with a big burned sign that read “ oakwood “ he nearly fainted in relief. Rugged paddled through the entrance, thinking if ant of the villagers would be kind enough to lend him a safe place to sleep.

The faded green saggitari listened with interest, smiling and nodding politely. He could sort of relate, fishing was relaxing and so close to nature. He'd been fishing since the night before in fact, though he didn't seem the slightest bit tired. He pulled a handkerchief from a pouch on his basket to wipe his paw before shaking hers. Fishing was a relaxing but dirty job. As he shook her paw it was easy to tell he worked hard, callouses on his pads.

"I agree! I grow carrots and that might not be as pretty but it's still fun. My name is Maru.

Violet smiled and walked to the small flower shop. There were strings of flowers decorating the doorframe and on display in the window. As soon as she unlocked the door a squeaking pink dragon no bigger than a small rabbit came a running, Tangled in a mess of string and ivy.

"Oh dear! I know I shouldn't have left her alone! Poor Lilly!"

She knelt down to help Lilly while talking to Lily.

"This is Lilly, though it seems she's gotten herself in a pickle here."

-----

Arthur nodded with a smile and turned to enter the castle. "Of course. But be alert, there are rumors this place is haunted. Not to mention the monster that roams these halls."

The entrance of the castle was a grand hall, a blood red carpet leading to two thrones. The walls were coated with spiderwebs and dust, though there were some odd footprints here and there. Even on the roof it seemed.

Alphie nodded lightly, a smile apon his face.

"If you really want to go see Malis be my guest. It's probably he lunch break right now. He is a really nice person, though he doesn't say too much."

Alphie stood, dusting bits of grass off of himself with a chuckle. He knew Malis was shy, not quite as shy as the kind bat before him but he figured they might get along.

Rugged walked through the streets, empty now because of the night. He paused at a small cottage looking house, with graceful wood features. After pausing a moment to think, he knocked and stood, his tail shaking side to side impatiently. The door opened a fraction of an inch, and a little cool voice called “ who’s there?”. Sighing in relief, rugged answerd; “ hello, I’m new here I am looking for a place to stay, do you know of any?”.
Almost emediatly the door flew open, reveling a medium sized cat standing in the doorway. She was pretty, with white and brown fur with white tipped paws and glistening blue eyes. “ I have a spare bedroom, if you don’t mind a bit of a mess.” “ Of course not!” Rugged replied. “ Although, what was your name again?” “Quarts” She replied, becoming him in with a flick of her paw before disappearing back into the doorframe. She lead him along a small hallway, painted with images of trees and birds. Rugged spotted little animals hidden amongst the plants.

“ oh, how rude of me!” He exclaimed. “ my name is rugged, and it’s awfully kind of you to let me stay tonight.” “ it’s no problem,” Quarts answerd coolly. I like company, and not just the animals.” Before Rugged could ask what she meant, they emerged into a room. The first thing he noticed was the windows. An entire wall was made completely out of glass, as well as the ceiling. Then the noise. Dozens of different animals lay in different habitats around the room, from little griffins perching on branches that criss- crossed the ceiling, or the iguanas and different reptiles in a small pond surrounded by sand. “Wo-ah, this is amazing!” He said to Quarts. She shrugged. “ it comes with the job!”

A while latter, Rugged was laying on his comfortable woolen bed, the sounds of the outside soothing. He concentrated so hard on the music of crickets and owls he didn't notice the quiet paddling of paws or the slight scraping of claws outside the window. A short while latter he fell into a dreamless sleep, after an exhausting day of traveling And fighting wolves.

(I hope you don't mind but I'm changing the time to early morning, I have to keep everyone at the same time)

At the entrance of the village there was a small white hare. And another. And about 20 more. Sitting amongst the drove of rabbits is a Brown and white saggitari. he seemed to be reading to the many hares that surrounded him. One said hare bounded off the top of his head and headed straight for rugged, thumping her foot next to him to get the saggitari's attention. Said saggitari looked up in surprise and stood, walking over while the hares dispersed back into the wood, save for the one who hopped back to him.

"Oh golly! Are you alrightt? Gee it sure looks like you've been running quite a bit!"
