Hello, I am Zyba, a regular paricipant in RPGs in the AG Forum Games Forum. Since this is the first RPG, this will likely go through changes as I find better ways to implement features into this RPG. Creating this RPG is my impulsive choice, and it is inevitable that it will end by my own or someone else's action.

Story
There once was a time where "magic" was plentiful; it flowed from the land into its inhabitants. The people who came to master this mysterious, powerful instrument came to be known as "magicians". Many amazing feats were done by the magicians- seas were split, mountains cracked apart, and storms were dissipated in an instant. Some magicians did not want to be bested by such feats and stretched to things farther than ever before imagined. However, what they summoned was a terrible tragedy: the land drew back the magic from its inhabitants and buried it under its great girth.
That is a story told by my grandparents by their grandparents who learned of it by who knows how many generations. The last rememanents of this "magic" are said to be deeply imbedded in these shards and gems we have found mining deep in the earth, but have yet to utilize. Currently, they are simply used a ornaments and jewelry. It does not seem that any "magic" has been found despite the research your kingdom has been funding.
You have recieve a small-grade shard as a birthday gift from a beloved. It does not seem to have the "magic" the stories describe, but it has a faint glow and you appreciate such a gift. You could only hope that it one day lifts you from your mundane life into the extroardinary until one day it sprang to life.

Apologies, I have only finished Magicness and Kipdon's stories. I will try to finish NoLifeNerds and Patrick 2011 if not tonight, then sometime tomorrow. Otherwise, if it does come down to it, I might just post the sheets in shifts, or if I am busy, every couple of days or so.

@Magicness and Kipdon: Since I am done with your characters you two can post your responses.
Tips:
You are allowed to name people that you know.
Except for dialogue, try to be a bit vague with your actions; I will write the details and try to guide your actions.

(Magicness)
Name: Lazerith Konstentine
Age: 22
Gender: M
Background: Family of farmers, Married to ailing wife
Afflictions: (To be generated directly or indirectly by me)
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
Inventory: (Unfortunately empty-handed)
You come from a modest line of humble people who till the land for fruits and vegetables- sometimes a plentiful harvest, other times a difficult famine, but your family endured to this day. You are of two children; your elder brother took over your family's farm while you came to taking over your beloved wife's family's. Your wife has unfortunately has fallen ill like her mother; you fear this ailment will lead her to join her deceased mother. Without the funds to hire a doctor, you can only work in the fields and hope for the best.
After the day's work you spend time alone at your wife's bedside. She is often asleep, but it seems your sobering woke her up. "Lazer, it's not your fault," your wife weakly sits up,"if only I wasn't so sick you wouldn't be so hard pressed..."

(Kipdon)
Name: Miagolio Maxwell
Age: 17
Gender: Male
Background: Family of laborers, Blacksmith apprentice
Afflictions: (To be generated directly or indirectly by me)
Health: 100%
Energy: 100%
Inventory: (Unfortunately empty-handed)
You come from a family of laborers: you mother works in a small tailorshop and your father and uncle work in the deep mines. Your father is friends with a local blacksmith, and since he had no heir to his trade, he was willing to take you in to teach his art of forging raw ores into metal tools and arms. You are doing well as his apprentice and will soon be able to stand side by side with him in the shop, but you have overheard your parents despairing over finances: the rent has risen, but due to scarcity of ore, your father and uncle's pays have been cut. You'll soon recieve a decent salary by the end of the year, but right now, finding a less skilled job could provide funds to pay the bills.
After a day's work your family sits at the dinner table to share a meal. Everyone looks as grim as the meager meal at the table; your father being the most grim. However, you father tries to change his expression and asks you how your apprenticeship is going. You tell him you are doing well, but you are really worried about paying the rent.

"Father, I was thinking of another way to support the family, financially, outside of my apprenticeship. I know that not even you can deny that our family is struggling with rent."
