Red Thorns (OOC and Sign-Ups)
« on: April 18, 2017, 03:32:03 AM »
I'm Cowslip, you might remember me. I haven't posted much on this forum at all, but if this gets going then I'll be here.

Anyway, on to the skeleton-outline of the plot of this thing.
Many generations after the founders of the original warren of Watership Down have passed on, the inhabitants are set upon by a new threat as a foreign rabbit Chief named Hyacinth (or 'Cinth-Rah) and his followers move in beside them.
It would be no problem, but 'Cinth-Rah is power-hungry and has learned how to create fire.

Clarification:
This may have a plot but that doesn't mean it's formatted. All that pretty much HAS to happen is the good guys eventually get rid of him, everything up to that is up to us as we go along.

This story takes place thirty human years after the events of the book.

Please use proper grammar and such and make posts that help advance the story (and don't powerplay.)

•Positions:

Watership Down
Chief: Conifer - played by Chipster-roo
Owsla Captain: Tallweed - played by Cowslip
Owsla: (Open, 1/5 taken) Cotton - played by Florapaw
Resident: (Open, unlimited) Zenpreen - played by Chipster-roo

Red Thorn Warren (Hyacith's followers)
An informal warren.
Note-these are the villains and should have an almost blind loyalty to their Chief, because of his talent (which is feigning magic-he isn't magical, but they don't know that)

Chief: (Taken) Hyacith ('Cith-Rah) - played by Cowslip
Second-in-Command: Ragweed - played by Chipster-roo
Follower (resident and Owsla in one) - (Open, unlimited) Rhubarb - played by Blue Daze, Robin - played by Florapaw

•You can have up to three characters if you can handle it.

My Characters:

Name: Hyacinth (known as 'Cinth-Rah by his followers)
Gender (Buck/Doe): Male; buck.
Age (no exact years, instead "Adult, elder, child, etc"): Adult. Middle aged.
Warren: Red Thorn Warren (founder).
Rank: Chief.
Personality: Hyacinth is a rabbit with a superiority complex that leads to sudden outbursts of emotion, wether that be good or bad. Despite that, he isn't stupid. His key traits are his narcissism and manipulative behavior, and although he is not physically strong he can trick and charm the unsuspecting to his whim, usually by gaining their trust and then breaking it.
To summarize it, the rabbit is a sneaky, power hungry, poor exuse for a leader. He is very clever.
Appearance (written): 'Cinth is average-to-short in height, but quite overweight, making him come across as much larger than he is . His fur is tan with some lighter accents around the tops of the eyes and belly, and he has ears that flop, though they are short enough that he has full control of lifting them up to make himself look bigger. He has reddish brown eyes and large paws and front teeth, and is a bit too well-fed for a wild rabbit.
Other: Here we go.

Name: Tallweed
Gender (Buck/Doe): Buck
Age (no exact years, instead "Adult, elder, child, etc"): Young Adult
Warren: Watership Down
Rank: Owsla Commander
Personality: Tallweed is stern and very loyal, although he takes time to trust anyone and is a natural pessimist. Despite his gruff sort of attitude, he is honest and would do anything to help his Warren.
Appearance (written): Tallweed gets his name from his lean but large size, making him a decent addition to the Owsla. He has gray fur and a sharp, pointed face.
Other: Nah.

Two characters, one from each warren.

Name: Ragweed.
Gender: Buck.
Age: Adult.
Warren: Red Thorn.
Rank: Second-in-command.
Personality: Was born to hlessi parents.  When he was still young, they were attacked by a weasel, and he only survived because Cinth-Rah scared it away with fire.  Since then, he has been practically worshipping his Chief and would be willing to do anything for him.  At even the slightest hint of disapproval towards him or Cinth-Rah, he goes into complete rage and fights the unfortunate rabbit who made the negative comment.  However, he can be easily distracted, especially by pretty does, which got him in trouble more than once.
Appearance: Mostly brown fur, but with white ear tips.  Average sized.  What he lacks in strength, he makes up for in determination while fighting.

Name: Zenpreen (tree with dew)
Gender: Doe.
Age: Adult.
Warren: Watership Down.
Rank: Resident, owsla hopeful.
Personality: Lived at Watership Down all her life.  She never experienced war or fighting before, although she loves the ancient tales of the battle against General Woundwort.  She believes that she is a better fighter than she really is (she's merely average) and thinks that the only reason she is not in the owsla is because she is a doe.  She often acts recklessly in order to prove her skills, much to everyone's annoyance.  She can also be really pessimistic, depending on the situation.
Appearance: mostly black fur.  Average size.  Unusually long ears.

Looks awesome, Chippy!
Especially Ragweed. I'm glad 'Cinth-Rah has a buddy.

Name: Rhubarb
Gender: Buck
Age: Young Adult
Warren: Red Thorn Warren
Rank: Resident
Personality:Dedicated, and strong-willed. He's honest and patient, and surprisingly reliable. However, he can be stubborn and judgemental. And he struggles feeling empathy.
Appearance: A small ruddy-colored buck with a dark dorsal stripe and pale underparts. His face is blunter than the typical rabbit, and his ears are short and round.
Other: He is half cottontail, half marsh rabbit. His warren was wiped out in a forest fire caused by man. He was found by Cinth-rah and, seeing he was fully capable of producing something that he thought previously only man could produce, he became a close follower and grew up under his rule. His magic has inspired him to believe rabbits are capable of great power.
