I have an idea and i didnt know where to put it so i just used this board as in some ways it is a request.
Ill understand if you dont let me do this because if you do, others might want to do the same thing.

I would like to make a myth in which I (Jamalian) am the legendary character. I think this is a pretty original idea but im not sure.
I would make up an NPC who would be in the myth and they could go on the people board. You could also use the myth on the history board and maybe put my name on the people board too as a legendary person or sumthing. (When i say board, i mean the info links in the top left hand corner of the site).

Now. If you let me do this. I would make a myth using myself as a legendary character and make up an evil foe or something along those lines-maybe both could go on the people board and the myth on the history board.
I could edit my description to make the myth fit in with my history.
Maybe my title could be changed to "Legendary Human Adventurer" or something like that.

As i said. If you dont like the idea, thats fine. If there is a chance of this going ahead then i will give the info (myth, change of title, change of history, etc...) in this topic.
If you think its possible but dont like some of the idea's then i could change the idea's i have.

p.s.
I would be doing all the work apart from the title being changed if this goes ahead.

Thanx!

Not my desicion at all, but Santharia has a pretty complex and well defined ancient history and mythology all of its own already.

If you can work around that existing mythology well fine...My personal suggestion would be to find someone who works on the other continents and make them part of that mythology; perhaps Northern Sarvonia (you'd need Drogo for that) or Deilou maybe?

ok, ill keep that in mind.

I was thinking more along the lines of..............i dunno how to explain it.

Not making a really well known myth like the others. Kind of a myth that has been heard of by many but is not really, erm.............taken seriously because it is a small myth.

That way, my character wouldnt suddenly become a popular god who everyone loves, but a bit more well known and more respected.

I was also thinking................i could exagerate his strength and power like...............William Wallace.
Everyone thought he was a 7ft giant who killed the English for fun, but really was different.

btw Wren....................if this goes ahead, i will come up with a name and descrition for another character in the myth.

so a popular legend of a certain region, not a deeply religious myth based on gods and such?

That would sound workable to me!

ok, sounds good.
Any other views?
Anyone think its not a good idea?
Or do I have permission to go ahead with it?

I personally think having a 'folk hero' would be a great addition to our myths and stories and legends.

I'm curious to see what you come up with!  Just respect what's already in place, and enjoy creating within those vast frameworks....

So, do I actually have permission to do this?

If I do, I was thinking of using maybe Santhala in southern sarvonia, because there is a forest, mountains and a city/town all close together there. It would be nice to use that place.
If thats a bit too big, then maybe somwhere a little smaller like Marcogg.
The myth could be called "Saviour of ........." (Saviour of "name of place").
I have a couple of storylines thought up.

Anyway, thats only if I get permission.

Suggest to gíve a story outline so that we know which time, place etc. you want to put your hero in and what kind of things you plan.

Just, also to keep in mind.

This legendary man you are creating, if he is in the past, you cannot RP with him in the current time frame.

He will be long dead, you know??

Unless you get a bunch of other Characters from the past, but I don't see many/any chars that are from the past.

Just FYI....

Ralhag: The legendary character I will be using in my myth will be Jamalian (this character that I am using now). This would have happened noe long ago and in his lifetime so he is still alive.

Artimidor: Jamalian is now 24. Im thinking this happened when he was 19. Thats 5 years ago. What would the date have been 5 years ago in Santharia? (I dont know the date now in Santharia so I dont know when this happened).
Once I know that, I can give you the rest of the info.

Aren't myths usually stories that can't really be proven true because they happened so long ago? 5 years isn't really that long and I'm sure there are plenty of people slive who would still remember it.

Hmmm, when news spread by traveling merchants the creation of myths was  going on very fast though it wouldn't be called a myth but take Braveheart as example for it. This was how it worked.

But I would also think that putting it into the past makes it easier...

I'm with these gentleman.

This mythical figure isn't old enough to have spread out and become legend.

Still remember the doings of Jamalian, so he can't be seen as a God, so much.

I know, I know, braveheart did it, but yeah.....

Anyway, I say its gotta be in the past more...

For what it's worth, I'm on Jamalian's side a bit.  That is only on several rules first.  First off I can see you doing something in a small remote area that might actually not have been a really big thing.  Then after say 10+ years it has time to become exaggerated  and all in the surrounding areas know about it.

ok.
Maybe it would be more of a tale then a myth. Then over years, it could develop into more of a myth because the story is twisted by the tellers of the tale. It spreads to other regions and he seems like more of a legendary character.
If Jamalian is 25(his age can be changed by 1 yr) and it heppened when he's 18/19, then thats 6/7 yrs that the tale has had to develop. Maybe it will be more of a myth by then.
What do you all think?
